YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

Just tried the YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils complimentary through Influenster! 

The pigment rich formula is really creamy and made my lashes look longer, fuller and dramatic. The new formula strengthens and protects lashes with B5 Pro-Vitamin. 

Would wear this mascara with a daytime smoky eye or any evening look. I think it made my eyes look noticeably larger and it was really easy to apply.

The nylon fiber brush is designed to coat and shape every single lash. Pro tip is to wiggle brush up through lashes vertically for first coat then tilt the brush horizontally and use tip of the brush to build on volume.

You'll get a bold, sultry look. No false lashes required. #yslmascara #yslbeauty #ysl

Degree Dry Spray

I recently tried the new Degree Dry Spray thanks to Influenster. I have used a variety of brands and types of deodorants before in the quest to stay dry. Stick, gel, roll-on, spray, you name it! I was excited to try the Degree Dry Spray, because it has been a while since I used a deodorant spray. 

The first test was using the dry spray on my trip to Cancun. I sprayed a little of the dry spray on my armpits and hoped for the best. 

The first thing I noticed was the smell. Really fresh and clean. Tropical with a powder accent. I packed up and headed to the airport. 

I had a red eye flight that was delayed for an hour. When I checked, I still smelled great after two hours. Boarded the plane and was on the plane for about three hours. 

Stopped in Miami. It was super hot. Checked again. Was still smelling fresh. Got on the second flight and was in the air for another three hours. Landed and went to a bed and breakfast. I was so excited and exhausted. Lay down and the first thing I noticed was that I still smelled fresh. Like I had just got out of the shower! 

Now I use the Degree Dry Spray before my shifts for work. I am a Makeup Artist and Skin Specialist so my job requires me to be up close and personal with women and men. I used to freshen up at lunch every day by reapplying my deodorant. Since I tried the dry spray, I haven't had to reapply. I was really impressed with the Degree Dry Spray for the ease of use, effectiveness and fresh scent.

Degree Dry Spray can be found at Walmart. I received this product complimentary to review from Influenster. #degree #trydry #walmart

Birchbox November: Giving

My first Birchbox I received from my subscription. Packed it with me for Christmas dinner with family!

Curl Keeper by Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper Gel 
Excited to have a frizz-fighter gel in a travel size. This gel made my curls sleek and smooth. Curl Keeper by Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper Gel keeps frizz at bay while maintaining luxurious shine and body. Love how a little bit of product goes a long way and there is no sticky residue or flaking. My curls looked absolutely amazing after using this product and I will be repurchasing!

dr. brandt pores no more vacuum cleaner

Have heard so many great things about the dr. brandt pores no more line so I was super pumped to see the vacuum cleaner in my box! My face felt nice and smooth after using it. My skin is in need of a major detox and this product does make it feel so clean after I use it. Will continue using the vacuum cleaner well after the holidays!

Not Soap, Radio Body Wash Awash in a Field of Four-Leaf Clover 

Everyone needs a little luck. When I wash with this it really perks me up plus I love the bright green color. Great for cold winters here in Minnesota.

The Awash in a Field of Four-Leaf Clover scent really does lift your mood and spirits. When I wash with this body wash I feel like I am treating myself to something special. It really foams up in the shower and leaves you feeling clean and hydrated. Perfect for the cold, winter months ahead. 

theBalm cosmetics Cindy-Lou Manizer

Did a classic and simple holiday eye look for Christmas dinner with the family. Used a light wash of the Cindy-Lou Manizer over eyelids and popped a little on the cheekbones too! A great time-saver. Have gotten so many compliments since I started using theBalm cosmetics Cindy-Lou Manizer! It has a beautiful, light amount of shimmer in a rose gold shade that is so on trend right now. Perfect for on-the-go. Will definitely be buying the full-size product!

Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips
The texture of the balm is so emollient and really protected my lips. Put this on before my lipstick or gloss of the day.
The Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips has a nice, thick texture perfect for shielding lips against harsh weather. I put this on every morning and night to condition my lips.

Vosges Haut-Chocolat Vosges Petits Chocolats Pink
 Himalayan Crystal Salt Caramel
A little treat for after Christmas dinner. So yummy and rich. Vosges Haut-Chocolat Vosges Petits Chocolats is refined chocolate at its best. A wonderful deep and complex flavor; so dark with sweet caramel accents. I love how the outer shell melts in your mouth and how long the flavor lingers after biting into it. A truly decadent and delicious experience.
