~ My August Favorites ~

Hello lovely followers. Today is been a day that all I have been doing is packing and cleaning my house. For those who don't know I'm going on a small trip to California my hometown =) Going to go and see my family and hopefully get to meet in person my lovely follower BeautyBehaved check out her blog if you have not done so yet. Its only for two weeks so I'm not going to pack a lot because then when I come back I always end up paying for the extra pounds....LOL I got to love South West Airlines =/

Any who today I want to share with you all my monthly favorites for the month of August. This months has been full of great things and its also been super hot and sticky not good. I'm very excited for fall to get here.
I have also been trying lots of new products that I'm going to be reviewing very soon.


1.  Skintimate Signature Scent Moisturizing Shaving Gel in Strawberry Tangerine Twist - This stuff smell like a  yoplait yogurt so, so good I always go for the store brand shave gel but I had a coupon so I got this one and from now on I think I will try more of this shave gel line =)

2. No7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser - I love this cleanser I used it about 2x a week it leaves my skin super soft and clean. But what I like about this is that it dose not over dry my face...."love it" . I will be doing a full review when I come back from my trip

3. St Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub - I have been using this seance I was in high school I like it even more during the summer because it really make my face feel super fresh and clean and help me not to get those nasty black head.

4. Sinful Color Nail Polish in Easy Going - This in my favorite color of the summer. It looks so good on tan skin and just gives your nail a nice clean look to them it!! click here to see my NOTD using this nail polish color.

5. Nars Blush in Luster - This is my every day blush that I have been using a lot. It just gives me a nice glow on my face.

6. Chocolate Masque for Normal, Dry and T -Zone Skin - If you LOVE chocolate then you should try this out its smell like a big bar of chocolate and not only that but afther you take it off your skin feel so refresh and clean. You can find them at Walmart I prommise you wont be desapointed especialy if you love chocolate like I do...but the only down side to this is that  you can't eat this....LOL =(

7. Band Aid Friction Block Stick - Its summer so I have been wearing lots of strapy shoes and sandals and when they are new  they are hard and can give you blister so this has been a life saver to my lady bug and me!

8. L'oreal Colour Riche LeGloss in Baby Blossom - Love this lip gloss its the perfect shade for summer and best part of all is not sticky.

9. Salon Perfect in Demi Wispies - This are my all time favorite lashes ever!!! they are not super dramatic and look natural on my eye. I have had lash extension before and this particular stayle looks as if I had them done with out spending the money on them.

10. Beauty Blender - I have a review on this click here to read more about it. With this super hot weather this sponge has help me to not use alot of faundation on my skin but still get that nice air brush finish to my face.

This is my list lovely followers of my  favorites for the month of August What are your favorites?

~ My August BirchBox ~

Hello lovely followers today I'm going to share with you dolls my review on the month of August Birch Box. For more information on what is a Birch Box please  click here.


This is the KateSpadeTwirl I love it its both fruity and floral but neither is to overpowering perfect for summer this is on my summer list for next yr.

I was in need of a night cream I like it so far I will finish this tube and see if I can get the full size then. I like how my face feels after I use it so soft.

I did not use this one because I like my St Ives apricot scrub. But my mom also got this and she like it so I will give this to her.

I was very excited to try this mascara you will have to read the instructions very well before you use this because it dose have a trick to it.  Its a very unique mascara but my #1 is still Maybelle's Falsies..LOL

This I will not use I will give it to my mom its a Lift Fix High Potency Solution.

I try this and did not like it at all but you can also use it on your wrist.

Overall I think that this month I was not to happy/excited with my box. I cross my finger that I get something much more better next month.

Review: Beautyblender

Hello lovely followers! Today I want to share with you my review on the famously BeautyBlender (BB).
I have had this for a few weeks now and I must say that it is AMAZING!!
I usually use a flat top brush to apply my foundation but eversence I got this egg sponge I have been using this insted of my brush. The way you use this is as follow  I wet the BB and squeeze out the excess water. Afther this I  put a dot of makeup on my cheeks, forehead, etc and I either roll or dab in all over my face.The narrow point is perfect for the corners of the eyes and around the nose.
By doing this it gives me the perfect full or ligth coverage that I want for that particular day without making my face cakeky which I feel that sometimes a brush can do. I dirent order the cleanser that come with it because I use an antibacterial soap to wash it afther every use. I also find that my cat love this and thinks that is a toy I saw him the other day trying to play with it that for I wish I could find a  better storage because I can't keep it on my bathroom counter to air dry. Over all Im very happy with my purchase.

Now lets talk about the price it is $20 for one or 2 for $25  online at They also seal them at Cherry I know that Cherry Culture had sale sometimes so you can always be on the look out for that. Also Target has something very similar to the BB. I dont know what its called but its on the Sonia Kashuk section its half the price. I wish I had it too so I could conpare them but everythime I go to my local Target it out of stock =(

 ~ Plus Points ~
Makes my face not look cakeky
Gives me a nice airbrush finish
I can do full to ligth coverage

~ Negative Points ~
Price ( if you or on a budget)
Storage ( if you have a cat..LOL)

I got two but one will go to one of my lovely followers on my next giveaway!!

I love it

This is what I use to clean it
