E.L.F. Pink Kiss Tinted Lip Oil

Press Sample Affiliate Link A few months ago I joined a new network that is specifically geared toward Instagram and Youtube.  While I love my blog, sometimes I get a little overwhelmed when work is busier and my son’s schedule is all over the place. The network is Octoly (for those curious) and it allows me to try out new brands and do mini reviews or features on my Instagram account. Tonight’s review is on a product I got through Octoly and I decided to do the mini Instagram feature as well as expand it into a normal post. That review is on the E.L.F. Pink Kiss Tinted Lip Oil. I’ve seen a few different tinted lip oils over the last 2 months and I actually enjoy them. I’m not really a gloss girl because the tacky feeling of gloss bothers me a little. Tinted lip oils are generally really smooth, moisturizing and…

Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip

Press Sample About 2 weeks ago a package was delivered to my work and it contained 17 Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip products. I was incredibly excited to see these and play with them a bit. I’ve worn the Smashbox Be Legendary Lipsticks before and have really enjoyed them (I have about 30 I think?) so to see the Be Legendary line expanded into liquid lipsticks was really exciting. The Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip is made up of 9 metallic finish shades as well as 8 vinyl finish shades. Most of these shades are office friendly and can be worn for both daytime and nighttime looks and I only found 2 of the shades weren’t ones that I personally would wear, but are fun to play with. Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip shades are liquid lip formulas that glide on with the full coverage of a lipstick and the high…

Battling Hormonal Breakouts With Zapzyt

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. When I was younger, I longed for the days when my skin would be clear and I could be carefree about it. I’m now 35 and that day still has not come. In fact, it got a little worse as I got older. After having my son, it took a complete nosedive. My hormones went out of whack and the battle began. I’ve never had really bad acne, just those problem spots that pop up. But when they pop up, it’s bad. That one pimple is red, angry and HURTS. I have PCOS, so my hormones are already whacky and hard to read. But my symptoms for PMS are pretty dead on, so I know when my skin is going to act out. That’s when I pull out Zapzyt. Pimples get really frustrating. I never had clusters of them or anything,…

LipSense Purple Reign

Press Sample After hearing about LipSense for a couple months and being extremely curious about the claims made, I had the chance to try it out and share my thoughts with all of you. Today I have LipSense Purple Reign to share! Pretty much as soon as the LuLaRoe hype seemed to die down just a tad, I started getting invited to LipSense Facebook groups. Lip color that lasts all day? Yeah of course I’m intrigued. I love makeup, but I’m lazy. I rarely reapply my lip color unless it’s a special occasion.  It’s just how I am.  I did a little searching, Googled some swatches and I was a little more interested. They looked pretty nice. Then I saw the price tag. Nope. Closed out. Done.  Not at all what I was expecting. And this was before I knew you needed a special gloss to go with it, which made…
