Mood Magic Color Changing Lipstick GIVEAWAY!!!!!

Have any of you ever heard of mood rings? I’m sure you’re all saying, yes. Well, now there are mood lipsticks!!! When I found out about these color changing lipsticks I knew I had to try them out.  They are a little different then you’re typical mood ring. These lipsticks all turn one specific color once you apply them to your lips. The yellow turns coral, green turns pink and blue turns mauve. But- they are incredibly long lasting, feel very moisturizing and are lightweight on your lips.

Trendy & Affordable- Breda Watch Giveaway! (giveaway closed)

Goodmorning Guys! I have something awesome for everyone this morning....A chance to win a really trendy, really adorable, Breda Watch. Stay Tuned!!!

A while ago I received a little gem in the mail, a Victoria watch in orange from Breda. I had chosen orange because bright bold colors are really in this summer season and it's also fun and on trend.

This is what the watch looks like on and here are it's features besides looking great:

- It has glow in the dark minute and hour hands

- It's water-resistant to 99 feet (30 M)

- It has an adjustable genuine leather orange strap

- It's  got the highest standard Japanese Quartz movement

- It has little crystal embellishments around the outside of the face

This watch is very comfortable, and I love pairing it with any color I'm wearing just to add a little more color. It is very adjustable. I have mine on the 2nd or 3rd setting and there are about 6.  Breda Fashion Watches have over a hundred designs colors and if you want to see more you can visit them at their website : http://www.bredawatch.com/

The watch above retails for $45.

Here are some more pictures I took!

Goat Milk What?...

Hey Everyone! I just love to find new products that I think are fantastic! It is so fun to discover beauty products that are better than  other's you've tried before. The reason I say this is because I have recently been introduced to GOAT MILK STUFF. This is a company run by the Jonas Family of 10. Jim and Pj and their 8 kids. I love their concept and the fact that this is a family run business that has a really excellent product.  SOAP.

Truth is... I am not a huge bar soap lover. I've always preferred soap in a bottle, such as a shower gel or body wash. BUT- these soaps have changed my mind about bar soap. Here's why:

  1. The colors are all natural. They do not use dyes or synthetic colors.
  2. They only use high quality essential or fragrance oils to scent the goat milk soap.
  3. They use only natural fats and oils.
  4. They use raw goat milk from their own farm.
  5. Each bar is unique, no 2 are exactly alike.
  6. They come in a variety of colors, scents and textures.
  7. They look good enough to eat! (No, I wouldn't eat them, but you get the picture...they look good! )
  8. Each soap is packaged in really cute little sack.
  9. You get 3 free samples with every order!

Goat Milk Stuff also has liquid soaps, lip balms and some other products. If I try any of those and find that I love them as much as these bar soaps... I will let you guys know!

I tried fragrances, Pink Sugar, Black Raspberry, Oatmeal Milk and Honey, Luv Spell and Rosemary Spearmint. I love them all. But, in particular my favorites were Pink Sugar because it smells so sweet and delicious and Rosemary Spearmint because I love rosemary and I love mint, together they make a great combination. Especially for a hand soap in the kitchen!

**You can buy bar soap in the half , whole size or, travel size. [slideshow]

PJ Jonas told me that right now they are doing a giveaway!!! $50 that you can use to get any goat milk stuff products you want! It's HIGHLY worth it friends, so I would recommend entering!! Here's how you can enter:

1. "Like" Goat Milk Stuff on Facebook and then click on the sweepstakes tab.
 
2. Enter on Twitter:  http://wfi.re/4vfb7 
 
3. Go to the Goat Milk Stuff blog and click on the "enter to win" at the bottom of the page.
 

 
P.S. LET ME KNOW IF YOU WIN!!!! If you win the giveaway, I win $50 as well!! Or, you can go over to their Facebook page, sign up for the giveaway, and say hi LAUREN sent me. :)

Best of Beauty:Nov~ Macadamia and AVST 1/Environ Giveaway!!!

Hey Guys! I'm back tonight to share with you guys 2 more things I have been loving through the month of November. These will be my last two for this month in my Best of Beauty Products.

Hang tight because I am giving away one of these products to one of you reading!!

I have been using the Macadamia Natural Oil products for the last couple of weeks and I absolutely love the smell and way my hair feels and looks after using these. I'm totally hooked.

First, I heard about the "Macadamia Deep Repair Mask". I heard that it makes hair super silky smooth and is great for long hair and repairing split ends, but then I realized that all of their products are really great for maintaining healthy hair. The deep repair mask feels amazing and leaves my hair easy to comb out after washing. The healing oil spray is fantastic for repairing split ends and keeping hair looking shiny and soft and the Nourishing leave in conditioner is the perfect thing to turn to when I still have trouble getting a comb through my hair. 

A really great set for the holidays is the "Get Hooked Pack." I will write a full review more in detail about these products I've been loving but for now, here are some pictures and the website: http://www.macadamiahair.com/

 [slideshow]

And Finally, the last best of beauty for November is my AVST 1 facial moisturizer. AVST stands for Advanced Vitamin Skin Therapy. I have been using this line of moisturizers every day for the last 3 months. My skin has been looking clear, and feeling great! I keep this in my beauty box or makeup box for everyday use and apply it right before I apply my foundation. I love how quickly it absorbs into my skin and how it makes it feels soothed and relaxed.

This is my "daily skin vitamin" and I have been loving it. Read more about this product here:http://www.environ.co.za/ranges/avst-range

Now, the Environ AVST moisturizer line goes up in levels. You want to start at 1 and go up.. I have been using level one and loving it. The levels just depend how potent or powerful the ingredients are. You want to start with 1 especially if you have sensitive skin and want to work your way into using such powerful vitamins applied directly to your skin.

Environ is letting me give one away to one of you!!

Here's what you have to do to win:

1. You must be a subscriber to this blog. If you're not and want to be, there is a button at the top right of this page.

2. You must live in the U.S . Environ only ships in the U.S.

3. Answer below, Have you found a daily moisturizer you really love, and if so , what is it??

4. ***Bonus, if you want an extra entry.. go to http://www.environ.co.za/ranges/avst-range and tell me what the highest level AVST moisturizer's go up to..

:) Contest will end next Sunday night December 12th at 11 pm Central Time.

Don't be bummed if you didn't win this time! I have more giveaways coming up. :) Thank you to all who entered.

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I moved into a new place. This has nothing to do with beauty...but it is a reason why I've been kinda slow in posting beauty blogs. If you want to see more photos, find me on facebook: leolucky777@yahoo.com

Many of you may know, today is WORLD AIDS DAY. A few beauty companies that help support and raise awareness for Aids are the following.

MAC COSMETICS. All year round at MAC stop in and take a look at the collection of Viva Glam Lipsticks and Glosses priced at $14.50 US. All of the selling price goes to the MAC AIDS FUND. Yes. I said ALL of the selling price. MAC has been a supporter of the AIDS foundation for years and has raised well over 100 million dollars  selling lipsticks and lipglosses alone!!! Another AWESOME item to check out in MAC stores near you are the VIVA GLAM holiday sets. :)

Barielle. The company about nails and toes will be giving 10 % of their proceeds today to the National Aids trust. Barielle has a fantastic Intensive Hand Treatment Cream that restores dry , thirsty hands overnight while you sleep! They also have new holiday nail colors. Check them out at www.barielle.com

Kiehls. Kiehls makes a hand lotion called, Hand Care for a Cure Hand Salve ($12.50). All of the profits from this lotion go to  amfAR, an AIDS research charity. Check out Kiehls at http://www.kiehls.com/

That's all I know of guys! I'm sure there are many more beauty brands that support World AIDS Day. If YOU know of any , leave a comment and let me know below.

Have a wonderful day everyone! If you enjoy reading my beauty posts and want to be automatically entered into all of my giveaways go to the top right and subscribe!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

I just wanted to type a quick post up saying  HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my wonderful subscribers and anyone else who happens to stumble upon my post. I was feeling very down in the dumps yesterday because I worked till close and I work all day tomorrow on black friday.(oh, and not to mention 5 days straight after that.) Bleh.  Needless to say, it was really getting the best of me. I was thinking myself sick. Today, I woke up feeling just fine and ready to have a great day spent with family!

This really goes to show how your mind can play games with you!! I was feeling so bad , I actually thought I was getting sick. 

 I have decided that today, I am going to be VERY VERY THANKFUL. I woke up to a kitty purring by my bedside and a wonderful husband on my other.

I'm thankful for friends, family, nephews and nieces, my kitty, jobs, and OUR NEW PLACE and position. I didn't tell you all but yesterday we found out we got a new apartment to live. I am so excited about moving into our own place. It will be the first time Royce and I are living alone.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving!! If you have not yet seen, I have a NEW GIVEAWAY UP! http://lovelo.wordpress.com/2010/11/23/go-nails-giveaway-a-nail-growth-treatment/

GO NAILS Giveaway~ A Nail Growth Treatment

Hey Everyone! Thanksgiving is just 2 days away... the holiday's have almost begun! It is very exciting, isn't it?

I have a special treat for all of you today. I am going to be talking about a nail growth product that I have been using for my nails and the company has allowed me to give one away to one of you!! YAY! So, if you want in, stay tuned for the details. :)

A product called "Go Nails" was sent to me to try out for a minimum of 10 days. It is a nail growth cream that you rub on your cuticle. I have to say I was very pessimistic at first because I have PROBLEM nails. My nails are always peeling and short because I constantly put nail polish on them and use remover to take off my polish. They never feel very hard and I've always felt like I can't wear  my nails natural because they look bad.

But, Go Nails lives up to what it says. It helped:

  • Repair my damaged nails,
  • Harden my nails  &
  • Made them grow fast!

 

It comes in this very easy to pump bottle and all you do is pump a small amount onto a nail and rub it into all of your cuticles. Rubbing this formula into the cuticle also helps stimulate nail growth. Here are some more photos and you can see my nails growing long and white. These photos were only after using the product for about 8 days. I started seeing results in about 5 days!!!!

[slideshow]

My nails were significantly whiter, harder and longer in only a couple of days. I like this product because it's so easy to use. You simply rub the cream into the cuticle and your done. I have tried other nails strengthening products and polishes that are supposed to harden your nails but none of them got me as good or as fast results as this has for my nails. ** You can also use this on your toes.

The two new ingredients that are in this product that help nails and cuticle are:

Lipoplastadine: Rich in Biotin from egg yolk to strengthen, nourish, and improve nail thickness.

  

 Thymulen 4: Stimulates the synthesis of keratins to enhance skin barrier function and improve the structure of the nail plate.Arginine Aminobenzoate which is a patented DNA simulator which promotes damage repair

It also contains:

Cell-nourishing keratin protein to strengthen and thicken

Biotin which helps thickens, strengthen, and harden nails

Jojoba oil and vitamin E  which help condition your nail and cuticle

Anti-bacterial tea tree oil to correct discolorations

 Collagen which helps regenerate nails to become harder

You are getting a little multi-vitamin in a bottle for your nail health. This bottle retails for $25 and can be found on their website at :http://www.mygobeauty.com/

Here's how you can win a bottle of your own!!!! Go Nails is being so kind as to sending a bottle of this out to try to one of my subscribers! This giveaway will end a week from today so Tuesday November 30th at Noon.  Go Nails can ship anywhere,so this is not exclusive to the U.S, so enter all you want!

  • You must be one of my subscribers. At the top right of my page click: I want to follow Lovelo.

That's it! I want to give this  away to someone who is going to follow my beauty blog. I appreciate all of you.

If you want 2 extra entries into the contest to up your chances of winning here's what you can do:

  • Mention my giveaway on your twitter, facebook, blog, or vlog channel. E-mail me the link: leolucky777@yahoo.com or post the link in my comment section.
  • Answer this question below: What are you most thankful for this time of year????

That's it! Again, this is the easiest contest to be a part of and I loved this product, so I'm sure you'd want to try it for yourself. You can take a look at before and after pictures at the GO NAILS website: http://www.mygobeauty.com/

Have a great day everyone!

Infomercials and the InStyler...

Hey Everyone! My typing is going to be purple today to celebrate the Minnesota Vikings Victory!!

Do you ever get sucked in my infomercials? Well, the ones that really "get-to-me" are the beauty ones. If I see a beauty product infomercial, my ears perk up and I have to see what the latest and greatest is.

I remember seeing the InStyler one time and wanting to try it...well, I now have my hands on it!!! I've been using it for the past few weeks and I have the scoop about this beauty tool  for all of you!!

Here are some photos of my

Instyler:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been using this for a couple of weeks now and here are the main things I want to point out.

  • It straightens and curls really fast. What I'd like to point out about this is that the InStyler is a great product for a girl on the go who has little time to fuss with her hair. It straightens and curls in one and is speedy.
  • It's for gentle bouncy curls and slight flipping not tight curls. The Instyler is great at flipping ends of hair and creating slight curls. It's not however for the woman who wants tight bouncy Taylor swift curls.
  • It straightens without feeling like it's scorching. Sometimes, I feel like putting my hair between to sheets of metal is really ruining it. But , because the hot metal iron is rotating it feels gentler than a flat iron. But-it also doesn't flatten quite like a flat-iron.
  • It makes hair look really shiny. I think my hair looked shinier after using this because It is gentle and it brushes your hair while it heats. So, I like that you don't have to use a brush and hair dryer, you can use this while your hair is slightly damp and create the same effect.

My Conclusion: I like to use this when I let my hair air dry and I have slight waves that I want to iron/brush out. It's a great lazy day tool or a perfect one to bring with me if I can only fit one tool with me on a trip. It DOES straighten my hair but not like my straightener. I would not use this in the place of my flat-iron, but I would use it if I want my hair slightly straighter or curled on the ends. I also like that I can create gentle curls with this.

Check out the website to watch videos of the InStyler: http://www.getinstyler.com/

 

Disclaimer: I did receive this on a product for possible review basis but I am not affiliated with the InStyler and was not paid for this blog. These are my honest thoughts.

 

Have a wonderful week EVERYONE , I will talk to you all soon.

Don't forget to go to my Biopelle giveaway. There are 3 of my favorite products that Biopelle is giving away to one of you!! They are truly products I LOVE!!! Contest ends Oct. 24th.

Inspirational Poem for Women...

Hey Everyone!
I've been writing a lot about products lately and I wanted to take a quick break from that. Here is a poem I want to  that I love to read as a reminder. Here it is below:
  
Arise Woman Of God

 

Rise up O woman of God In what He has given you The things God has laid on your heart Rise up, go forth, and doUnlock what God has placed within The potential you have inside The world is waiting for your release To expand your wings and fly

Arise in your God-given gifts For this is your finest hour Arise in the Lord’s holy might Ignited and empowered

For God is calling you to come forth To impact this world for Him Don’t hold back or limit yourself Let His power arise within

And take His message to the world To those that have lost their way For you can surely make a difference If you’d hear His voice and obey

You shall be strengthened in the Lord As you begin to arise Conquering those doubts that pull you down And believe who you are in Christ

For you shall surely be transformed As, in you, God increases more And become a woman of true excellence Bringing honour to her Lord

© By M.S.Lowndes

Take a look at this post and read about these skin care products I have been LOVING. They are the :

  • AFA Cream Cleanser with Dead Sea Minerals - one of the BEST skin cleansers I have ever used. Takes off make-up effortlessly and feels comforting and rich.
  • AFA Ultra-Rich Moisturizer with Dead Sea Minerals- rich and hydrating.
  • Tensage Intensive Ampoules- these are highly addictive! Leave your skin soft and smooth.

Everything I have used from Biopelle so far has been gentle, and comforting for my skin. I have more sensitive skin and have had no problems whatsoever with any of these products. They have only seemed to help restore the smoothness and moisture that my face needs.

"Just the Way You Are" & SJ Creations

Hey Everyone! I have a cheesy song for you all today. I keep hearing this on the radio as I'm driving. Have you heard it????? "Just the way you are" by Bruno Mars. I knew once I heard it I should post it on here for you all to hear. Even though it's a little dorky, it kinda lifts my spirits and makes me happy.

This Bruno Mars guy must be brand new on the music scene. I have never heard of him . Funny name too. But, if he keeps making uplifting songs, I'd say he has a career in front of him.

I just really have a passion for reaching out to women everywhere and telling them that they are beautiful!!!  I know how cruel the world can be sometimes...and I know how much pressure there is to be female. And, I JUST WISH I COULD CHANGE THINGS FOR THE WHOLE FEMALE POPULATION. So, I can't help but want to post inspiration when I hear or see it.

Next, SJ Creations was kind enough to send me some of their organic body products! I got this PURE BODY ORGANICS - Body Butter. The scent is Green Tea and Ginger Blossom.

If you don't know already, I love GREEN TEA and I love Ginger. So BAM! Put the two together and you have a collaboration I'm sure to love. And I do!! It has a very clean and aloe like scent. I kinda smell the "green" in it more than anything...the ginger is not that strong but it is still delicious.

I love big body butter tubs like this because I feel like I'm never going to run out. There is so much in there!

The body butter is very rich, very thick , very creamy. It feels best on the skin after you've taken a shower or bath and your skin is dry.

Another great thing about this product is it's pretty cheap $14 for a 8.4 oz jar. You can find products from SJ creations at places like Trader Joes, T.J Max, Ulta, Sears, KMart , Marshalls and more.

Unfortunately, I wish I could tell you a little more about their scents, but this one is the only one I smelled. But, I did really like it. It's not too strong.

SJ Creations also does a lot of work with Charities. It's fun to read about which ones they work with.  For more information about them you can go to their website www.sjcreationsinc.com

I also received a travel pack from SJ Creations. It's their Pure Body Organics Green tea and Ginger blossom travel pack. It has body wash, body mist and body lotion inside.

This would be a great product to give away to one of you guys...so I think I will hold onto it for another time.

Disclaimer: I did receive these products free but in no way did that influence this review. I was not paid and these are my honest thoughts.

Don't FORGET about my giveaway going on down below. I have only gotten a few entries...plus my subscribers. But, if you haven't already PLEASE partake in it.

I want a lot of you to have the chance to win some free stuff. You can read more about my Soulstice spa giveaway in the post below this one. (Yesterday's post).
