::Hourglass Cosmetics Review::

So recently I ordered the Hourglass Cosmetics, it was so hard to choose but decided to go with the Immaculate® Liquid Powder Foundation & The Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood. Let me start with the foundation...It claims to be the perfect foundation for oily skin. I have combo skin, but who can pass up the promise of a long wearing foundation, that stays velvety matte finish—without the need for touch-ups?!
Immaculate® Liquid Powder Foundation

My opinion: WOW! The foundation is everything it promises! I loved the feel & love the smell. I big on smell & it smells great! It is like a mouse, but dries velvety matte. Make sure you shake the bottle before every use. I feel like it comes out better that way. I don't know if it states that, but I have found that it works best that way. No need for touch ups at all. Pure Perfection. It is worth every penny. I will be re-purchasing again & again.

The Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood. So, now for the Ambient Lighting Powder...It is amazing! I don't want to call it a highlighter, it is more of a illuminating powder. It is so subtle. It's not glittery at all, it just gives your skin a glow. I've played with it & have used it many different ways. I actually have tried it on my cheekbones & have used it as a brow highlight, & I have even put it on as eyeshadow. You can also use all over your face just to have a healthy glow. The very first day I wore this I got so many compliments on how my skin looks so flawless. It is also worth every penny. What I like about hourglass is that their product deliver what they promise. Which makes it pleasant to purchase and repurchase.

Lastly, I purchased the Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo & it's also amazing. Long wearing bronzer & the blush is the perfect pink shade. The amazing thing is they are a cream consistently , and they dry matte & are long wearing.

Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo

(Looks a little orange, but it's not, its my flash.)
My final opinion: I love Hourglass Cosmetics. Every product I purchased has been amazing. I will keep purchasing. My only suggestion is to order from Sephora.com. I purchased direct through their website and didn't get the service I had hoped for. My package was sent to the wrong address, which was the companies wrong doing. & when I called they didn't seem that helpful. My second package was sent out, and again it was sent to the wrong address. It was very frustrating, but I try not to get to upset. I mean mistakes happen. So finally I decided to order again, after three days I decided to call to ask about my package and was notified that what I had ordered was out of stock. I just feel like I could have been taken care of a bit better. :) Have a sparkling day!

::Velecta Paramount Professional Super-Lightweight Hair Dryer::

Velecta Paramount Professional Super-Lightweight Hair Dryer by Flatironexperts.com

I recently tried this dryer & was amazed on how well it worked for it being so small. Since I spend most of my hours blow drying. I need something that is powerful & that dries fast, but most importantly a dryer that does not damage the hair. A dryer that adds shine & makes the hair feel smooth.

The first day I used it was on one of my clients who has curly hair...

& here were the results

I was very happy with the shine & the heat that it provided.
The next client I tried it on I had the same results...which is important...

My overall grade:...

I love how small it is, it's perfect size. & I love how it comes with an attachment to make it a little bigger. I don't think I will use the attachment since I love how small it is. & I love how it fits in my hand. I really have been searching for a small hair dryer & this exceeds my expectations as far as length & weight. It comes with two nozzle attachments; one for fast drying, the other for precision work. I also love the extra long cord. That is one thing that I love the most, it is hard to find dryers with long cords. As a hairstylist having a long cord makes your life much easier. :0) The only reason for the minus is, wish it would get hotter, I felt like it took a minute or two to get hot. But when it got hot, it was hot.

September is CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARNESS Month! The color of Pediatric Cancer Awareness is GOLD, just like the color for breast cancer awareness is PINK. Wear your GOLD ribbons! It's kind of ironic how this is the same month that my sister passed/graduated. <(I heard this & thought it was nicer) Cancer is the most hated disease, I just can't believe that it doesn't discriminates. It will happen to young & old! F U Cancer!

The color of Pediatric Cancer Awareness is GOLD, just like the color for breast cancer awareness is PINK. To me, every month is Pediatric Cancer Awareness month, it doesn’t change. This thing called CANCER changed our lives forever! We now have four beautiful years of memories. My baby sister lives on... in our lives. Last Chirstmas we donated family baskets to the Ronald Mc.Donald House in her honor. We also donated gift cards from our Mom's 50th birthday party this past July. Let's take a stand & help these babies & families. I had read that In 2013, more than 11,000 children will be diagnosed with cancer, and about 1,300 will die from their disease. Survival rates for many childhood cancers have improved dramatically over the past few decades, cancer is still the second leading cause of death in children!! Help spread the word!

My New Buy::: Chanel - Soleil Tan de Chanel - Bronzing:

Chanel - Soleil Tan de Chanel - Bronzing:
So, I purchased this the other day when I was visiting my parents & My mom & I went to Macy's and visited the Chanel counter & I thought I would buy this bronzer since i need a bronzer & wanted to try it. It took me a couple of days to acutually try it on, but when I did it was amazing! Its a creamy feel but dries matte. It's simply the best! It's funny when i love a product, I become obessed and I don't want to use it! lol It's so prefect for contouring, and is not only for summer it's something I will permanetly use. The girl at the counter told me I could use as a face bronzing or I could use it on my legs! I haven't played with it but it's amazing!!!
