Pixi Make up - Succulent Lip Twin , and The Week of Makeup

Hi Guys! Did you enjoy my interview with Petra Strand of Pixi Makeup? Hope you did! The coolest thing was that after trying some of her makeup line, I got to ask her some questions! If you haven't seen it yet, here is the link:

Pixi Beauty, Petra's line of cosmetics have a new product called the Succulent Lip Twin's. It is an adorable little tube that contains lip balm and lip & cheek tint. They are not only a wonderful multi-use product, but their long-lasting, feel great on your lips and come in some bold colors for spring and summer!

The other item from Pixi I have tried is the "weekend of makeup". This is a kit that includes, eyeshadows, blush and lip colors all broken up by days of the week. There is a Monday through Sunday and each color is different. Petra talks about her influence behind this kit in the interview I did and posted yesterday. This would be a great kit to have if you are new to makeup and want to be able to try multiple colors and shades without spending a ton of money. This would also be great if you want something simple to take with you when you go on trips. This has so many colors and shades and is all in one little booklet!

Hope you all have a wonderful Friday! Talk to you all soon.


Love, LO

Impressed with Sonia Kashuk Spring/Summer 2011

Hi! Target is a great one stop shop. One of the most popular beauty brands at Target is Sonia Kashuk.  Over the past couple of months I've been using some of  the products which I've been quite impressed with.

 I love the nail polishes, they are long-lasting and  vibrant trendy colors. The purple one from the collection below is my favorite!! There is a beautiful coral/orange shade, a bright pink, a nude/concrete shade and a mossy green. You can find them at Target stores!

Her lip glosses and lipsticks come in really bold amazing shades and for $8.99 they're a great deal! They are long-lasting and feel great on your lips. 

The bare minimum pressed bronzer is one of my favorites from the line. Not only does it look beautiful in the packaging but it's perfect for giving a bronzed look or sculpted cheekbones and only $9.99. Here is the website...

My "Best of Beauty" for October

Hi Everyone! I can't believe November is already here. The holiday festivities are about to begin and this is by far my favorite time of year. I have a new name for my favorites of the month. I will call them my "best of beauty" for _____ month. So, each month you can expect me to put my favorites.

Best of beauty will include make-up, skin care, hair products, beauty tools...anything that can be beauty related. These are MY opinions.  It is always so hard to choose but I will base it off of what I've tested and tried and love.

So, let's put October behind us and take a look at the products I've been loving!!

ManeTamer by T3. This hair straightener works fast , heats up fast , and get's my hair super smooth in seconds. To see my full review on this go to my T3 Review: Find the T3 products at their website:

Mark Anthony Style Straight Iron Shine. This shine spray protects my hair from heat and leaves it shiny and straight. I have been spraying this on my dry hair before I straighten to give it long-lasting shine. I have not done a full review on this product and plan on it in the future. Find this product on the Marc Anthony hair care website:

Environ AVST 1 Moisturizer. I have been using this moisturizer every day before I apply my makeup. It contains a low-level of vitamin A and powerful antioxidants to combat free radicals, repair and rejuvenate skin. This is different from the AVST moisturizer I have talked about before in my august favorites. Here is a link to that review. Here's where you can find this product:

LuMesh Lipgloss. I've been addicted to these glosses since I started using them. They are creamy, moisturizing, plumping, vitamin infused, give good color and have a  mirror for application on the back . Check out these glosses at :

SigMAX kabuki brushes. Sigma has introduced two new brushes, a round top, slanted top kabuki. They already had a flat top kabuki and just added 2 more to the mix. These brushes are Amazing. They are soft, and well made. Great for getting makeup to look flawless and airbrushed. Here is the link where you can find these brushes!

100 % Pure Coffee Bean caffeine Eye Cream. If you guys don't know already...I am in love with this company. The 100 % pure products have been amongst my favorites of everything I have tried in the last few months. Their Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream is wonderful. I use it every morning as it helps make my eyes look and feel more awake! Here is the link to their website: They have the most delicious scented products and adorable packaging.

SOHO Beauty Cases. Love these cases for travel and storing makeup and products. The best part is, they're affordable!! You can find them at TARGET! Take a look on their website here:

Whew!!!!! Did you think it would never end? I had a lot of "best of's"  this month, and probably even more I could name. One more thing I don't want to forget is my cat BEAR. He is , of course, a "best of" my life. :)
