This is my favorite organic lip balm! They are also perfect for traveling! Happy weekend!

Hello, my friends!

I hope all of you are doing well.  It is crazy how fast the time goes by. Here we are again! It is time for another lovely Ipsy review.

Let’s get started with the Briogeo Rosarco™ Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Crème.  This product is loaded with coconut oil and argan oil. You only need a small amount for your hair to look shiny and soft.

I color my hair once a month, and if I don’t pay attention, it gets dry, especially at the ends.  In less than one week, after using this product, I was already noticing a huge difference. I had super soft and shiny hair. The price of this product is also reasonable.  I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Let’s move on and look at the Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish. I’m sorry, ladies, but I do not have anything positive to say about this nail polish.  It was quickly removed from my bathroom.

Even though I’m not a fan of dark polish, I went ahead and did my nails with this polish anyway. The results were disappointing.  The brand is vegan and cruelty free, but that color? No. Not a fan at all. I will give this product 1 out of 5 stars. (The one I received was super dark.)

Now we are going to talk about the Butter™ Lipstick! Right after receiving this lipstick, I logged into my profile on Ipsy and made some changes. I love natural colors, so I updated a few things.
Seriously, why in the world did they send this super red lipstick?

I know some intense, dark colors are in style right now, but they are not for everybody. I can’t imagine myself going out with that color, even for an evening look; I will not wear it. I believe I stated my point, right? I must say, though, that I do love how soft and super easy it is to apply. I’m going to give this color 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Yay! I can finally share my favorite powder from Naked Cosmetics: HD Finishing Banana Powder. This powder goes hand-in-hand with my new Chanel foundation. It sets the makeup so beautifully and flawlessly! Yes, I’m in love with it. Also, it makes my makeup last longer.  5 stars for this one!

Finally, last but not least, let’s review the  PHYTO-PIGMENTS  Cream Blush in Flush. I love this natural product. The color comes from plants and veggies. It is super easy to apply. But seriously, Ipsy, how many blushes are you going to send us?  This product will get a 4 out of 5 stars.

Here we are again, with our World Cup Qualification UEFA! Today will be Italy vs Albania! Forza Azzurri!

Until my next review, take care!

Happy first day of spring! This beautiful picture came just recently in my Ipsy bag. I thought I would post it on my blog as a reminder that we are all beautiful, inside and out. We need to be kinder and gentler with the way we feel about ourselves. When we neglect “me time,” or we keep on skipping our workouts, we tend to be a bit harsh with ourselves. Trust me, we are all human, I have done it. Today, I was happy to schedule my run first before anything else on my to do daily list. Okay, now I need to catch up on things! Lost of hugs! Have a happy Monday!

Here is one of my favorite quote from Victoria Beckham:
“I think the sexiest thing about a woman is confidence, but confidence in a humble way, not in an arrogant way. Sense of humor is definitely important. And sunglasses always hide a multitude of sins. Sunglasses and a great pair of heels can turn most outfits around. “Victoria Beckham


P.S. Thanks, Patrick!

Dear friends,

The following is my own review. I am not affiliated with any of Suzanne’s products.

As you already know, I am trying to use more and more organic products on my skin. I recently switched to Suzanne Somers’ organic skin care line, and discovered Suzanne Organics’ .

This product just came in the mail the other day, and I have been anxiously waiting for it. My face has been looking a little tired these past couple days due to all the antihistamines I have to take for my allergies (some more were added this past week). So, this product came at the right time.

It is super easy to use. With a clean face, you apply a small amount to your skin. Just go in a circle motion with your fingertips and leave it on for a few minutes. Wash it all off with a warm washcloth in the shower. You will notice bright-looking, tight, and beautiful skin.

The following was written on the back of the product:

“Beta-Hydroxy Acids from organic fruits and Green Tea gently loosen layers of old skin cells while stimulating new cell turnover, then Polished Peach Grains lift away dead layers, leaving remarkable radiance.”

You will see an awesome difference with your skin. I even applied it on my hands! They feel wonderful and super soft.

I have read, on many health and beauty magazines online, that, in order to keep our skin healthy over 40, it is recommended that we get one professional facial once a month to keep the skin looking young. With this product, you do not have to do that. I have done many facials, and this product, along with the calming toner and cleanser, gives me the same results. I will soon do a blog review about the calming toner and cleanser.

So, go in your bathroom and remove all the scrubbers that feel like sandpaper on your skin, and enjoy a little “me time” with Suzanne Organics’ Exfoliating Peach Cleanser. When we exercise and take care of ourselves, we actually love ourselves and other people more. We give everybody our best. XO

Happy Friday! My Chanel foundation has finally arrived!!! I have never been more excited about writing a product review. 
Let’s take a step back to the late 90’s. That’s when I started using Estée Lauder and many other department store foundations.

The drugstore makeup never worked for me, and I don’t know why. Just recently, I tried the Double Wear and the Re-Nutriv from Estée Lauder. Before that, I was using the Chantecaille. That is another one of those that you could only purchase online. Or, in my case, at Neiman Marcus at the Domain in Austin!

For this one, let’s thank my sister, Maria, for sharing her love for Chanel foundations. Ladies, this is how you discover new things. Don’t be afraid to ask your sister or bff questions if you notice something new about their clothing or makeup.
Anyway, once you open the small bottle of Chanel foundation, you are going to notice a beautiful scent. I don’t like to apply make-up with my fingers since it is messy. So, I use an Urban Decay brush.

This foundation feels significantly lighter on the skin. It covers every blemish and makes my skin look flawless in the mirror and on selfies. Also, it gives me great coverage and leaves a nice glow on the skin. It brightens it up and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and pores. This gorgeous foundation will lasts throughout the entire day!

 I have not used the setting powder; you will not need to do that.
Now, when I do my makeup, I seriously feel like I’m ready to go on the red carpet.  Finally, go ahead and apply your favorite lip color and add the finishing touches on your fresh-faced look. Now, you are ready to go! I actually feel sad when it is time to remove it at night.
I give this product 5 out of 5 stars. Xx
