daltonlogo
For those of you that have been following my blog for quite some time now know that in the past I reviewed for Dalton Cosmetics. I was so given this wonderful opportunity to do another review from this fabulous company.

doris_photo
Dalton Cosmetics was created after Doris Dalton was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer. Doris ended up losing most of her eyebrow hair Doris wanted to create a product that looked natural where her eyebrows were missing. After many times of trying to perfect this creation she was able to produce a product that is long lasting, nurtures your skin, and looks natural. With great desire and the demand of her eyebrow cosmetic formula, Doris was innovated to create a line that was an alternative to cosmetic surgery. Over several years of perfecting the formula Doris produced the fresh coat mascara. This mascara is contaminate free and the wiping system allows you to control how much is dispensed so that you get the perfect amount every time. It did not stop there. Dalton cosmetics are now one of the most popular brands on QVC with double digit numbers and growing.

Along with reaching out to the community, Doris is keen on giving back to them. She is also greatly involved with cancer support and research organizations and has given away tens of thousands of Brow fix to woman in need. To benefit breast cancer, Dalton’s Pink Shades Hydrating Lip Gloss Trio was created, in which a donation is given to the Breast Cancer Society with each set sold. Doris is a survivor inspiration to many .All Dalton cosmetics proudly bare the cruelty free bunny and comply with all PETA regulations by not testing on animals or working with manufactures that show harm towards animals in any way.

Dalton Eyeshadow Duo (Jade)
This eyeshadow is color Jade on the right and a pretty Champagne color on the left. You can wear them together to create a beautiful look.

I applied Jade on the lower lid and crease and then applied the Champagne color above. Blend them together with your blending brush to bring the colors together. In addition, I used eye primer to enhance the color.

Mirage Blending Powder’
Have an issue with blending in your makeup? No fear as Mirage blending powder will blend away any mistakes you make applying your makeup. Using this powder will reduce redness, and minor imperfections, as well as evening your skin while making it smooth. This translucent powder is ideal for all skin types.
The technologically advanced formula combines state-of-the-art ingredients to actually mimic the light of a camera by filtering light and blurring imperfections to create a flawless face. It’s infused with new color-correcting and light-adjusting pigments, which automatically adjust the light, enhancing your skin’s natural beauty. At the same time, it neutralizes and corrects unevenness and redness while adding the right amount of definition to skin. This lightweight, jet-milled powder does not cake or lay in lines or wrinkles and can be easily applied with a brush.
To apply tip the jar upside down with cap on. Turn it right side up and open cap. You can now see powder come out of the holes from the top. Use a brush to apply.

As you can see with this one my daughter thought it would be cute to keep my lipstick up and push the cap on. This pairing i s Date Night and both have soft berry shades.

snap
If you ever want to change out your tops and bottoms just snap them apart and you can put Bombshell top on Bare Necessity bottom. I think this is a great feature so you do not have to take both products with you if your going out and want two different colors.
My Verdict
All these products are truly amazing. When I received them and tried them on for the first time, I quickly remembered why I fell in love with Dalton Cosmetics in the first place. The lipstick/gloss combo is hydrating and pure bliss. Your lips feel silky and smooth all day long. When you remove the lipstick/gloss your lips continue to be moisturized. The Blending powder gives you a flawless look every time. In addition, it does not look like you have a pasty face or ghost look. The eyeshadow Duo is beautiful and does not crease or cake. The jade color is one of the prettiest greens I have used for eyeshadow. If you want to purchase these products hop on over to my holiday guide and check it out. Qvc sells Dalton Cosmetics.

I rock it out in this shirt every time and everyone asks me where I got this shirt. I just tell them Nacho Mama Tees. People have told me that it is the best shirt they have seen.

CrazyDog Shirts offers vintage style tees that range from hilarious to modern pop culture. This company offers a huge variety of tees that there is something for everyone. CrazyDog Shirts are printed on ultra soft preshrunk cotton t-shirts. I was given an opportunity to receive one of their shirts for review.

facebookknow_22
The t-shirt I chose was I think I know you from Facebook. This shirt has got me a lot of compliments. I went out to dinner last week with my family and I decided to wear this shirt. As I was walking back to the table from using the restroom a young gentleman says I think I know you from Facebook! It took me a slight second, as I am looking at him I did not recognize him at all, I then chuckled and realized he was referencing to my shirt. This shirt only comes in this grey/blue color and in size small up to 4X. I have worn this shirt multiple times since it arrived and find it to be very comfortable. In addition, it washes very well and what I like is that you can toss it in the dryer as it won’t shrink. You can find this shirt in the Mens collection HERE.

With over 190 bioactive compounds, sea buckthorn is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9.

My Verdict
I have been using these for quite some time. I never grew my nails out because I had a habit of chewing them and every time I attempted to grow them out my nails would be weak and break. After using this product and trying to break my terrible habit I was able to grow my nails and they grew out stronger than I ever had before. However, I did end up chewing a few off! My hair is starting to look and feel a lot healthier as well. Overall this product has been great.

My Verdict
I love this body cream and think it works wonderful. I did not notice a strong scent with this product so if you are sensitive to smells you do not have to worry. The cream is very light and non-greasy. In addition, it is very moisturizing to your skin. I have been battling a patch of eczema again on my face and it will go away and come back. I decided to use this on my face and it has been helping the itch and soothing the affected area. The Shea butter and aloe in the cream work great together for sun burns. If you get a sun burn apply this to your burn and it will help relief the effects of the burn.

          Zip Them On Zip Them Off. Zipz Shoes Review

          Holiday Gift Guide Selection 2012
          zipzlogo
          When I first heard of Zipz shoes I was thinking to myself shoes that zip? How is that even possible? I did not know that there could be a shoe that was interchangeable. Zipz shoes have become the new revolutionary product. They are the first interchangeable shoe worldwide. I was going to get a pair for myself. However, my six year old daughter had other plans when she learned I was given the
          opportunity to review a pair of Zipz shoes. I always put my children first so the pair she chose is Cali Classic Lo top Supermodel.
          100_1561
          These are just the cutest pair of shoes I have ever seen. One morning my daughter says mom, when are my shoes going to get here? I told her that I did not know when they would arrive but not to expect them for least another week. Later that afternoon FedEx came and the shoes arrived!!! I knew my daughter would be so excited when she got home from school. In the meantime I had to open them up and snap this photo before she came home. When arrived home from school she was so delighted that she could not wait to put them on.
          100_1648
          My daughter wears them to school on days that she does not have PE because they are slightly big for her. My daughter wears a 3.5 and these are a 4. They do not flop off her feet which makes it nice. In addition, she has a wide foot and we were ecstatic that these fit comfortably. Emily mentioned that what she really loved also about the shoes is that she cannot feel the zipper on the inside of the shoe. Sometimes she likes to put her shoes on without socks (mom does not like the idea) and who wants to feel a scratchy zipper? With these you cannot feel them. Furthermore, the only reason I will allow her to wear these without socks is because the interchangeable zipper system allows fresh air to flow in and out of your shoes so that your feet will always feel fresh and dry.
          100_1562
          As you can see in this photo the tops zip off so you can change them with a different style of choice. The tops can be thrown into the washer when they get dirty and will look like new again! The bottoms are durable rubber so if they get dirty you can use a wash cloth to clean them. Emily is always bugging me to get her a pair of tops so she can have variety. I told her maybe for Christmas we will have to get her a new pair of tops. With the holidays approaching these would make the ultimate gift for younger or older. I showed my mom a photo of them and she wants a pair!! Pick up some extra tops too as you can have 1 in the wash and 1 on the shoe at all times. Kids will love changing their shoes out.
          Zipz Shoes comes in a variety of Cali Classic Hitop adults, and youth, Cali Classic Lo-top adults and youth, and Cali Classic slip-on adults, and youth.

          Five Finger Tees Review

          Holiday Gift Guide Selection 2012

          fivefingerteelogo
          I received this wonderful opportunity to do another review of this amazing tee shirt company called Five Finger Tees. First let me tell you that I am a big tee shirt person. I may have
          mentioned this before but I wear tee shirts year round even in cold weather. There are so many wonderful things to say about this company so first let me show you my tee.
          hello zombie

          I chose the Hello Zombie tee in purple. I love Hello Kitty, although I am not a fan of just having a Hello Kitty shirt on without some funny saying. Therefore, I opted to get the Hello Zombie Tee. I have received many compliments wearing this shirt. A lot of people ask me where I get my tee shirts and I kindly tell them Five Finger Tees.
          Five Finger Tees offers a Huge variety of shirts in many colors and sizes. All their shirts are very reasonable in price of $11.99 with the exception of plain tee shirts that are $4.99. How cool is that?? You can have a different color shirt for every day of the week!
          christmas
          With the holidays approaching Five Finger Tees even have holiday tee shirts. All of their tee shirts are soft preshrunk 100% cotton with Double-needle stitching throughout and a seamless rib at neck. In addition, their T-Shirts are Professionally Screen Printed in the U.S.A. they do not use heat transfers or irons-ons.

          fivefingerteeassorted
          My Verdict
          I love Five Finger Tees. The shirts are funny and the quality is superb! In addition, they wash extremely well and the color does not fade. The shirts are very roomy and comfortable. These would make a great gift for the upcoming holiday season. For the price you cannot beat a quality tee shirt such as this. I highly recommend checking the site out. I cannot go down to a local store near me and find a tee shirt as nice for this price. I also like that they are not heavy and do not make me hot in the summer. The fabric does not stick to my skin.

          Flat Iron Experts Flat Iron Review

          Holiday Gift Guide Selection 2012
          flatironexpertslogo
          I was very excited to be given the opportunity to try a flat iron from Flat Iron Experts. My hair can be very unruly at times and very wavy. Sometimes I do not mind it having a lot of waves and body, but I do like to change it up for a different look now and then. I often find that people that have waves and curls want straight hair and ones that have straight want waves and curls. With flat iron experts you can do that by using a flat iron or purchasing one of their other products. Flat Iron Experts is an online beauty company that specializes in fulfilling your hair care needs. You can choose from various brands of flat irons, curling wands and irons, hair dryers, nail products, and more.

          flatironexperts
          The Cortex flat iron is a 1 inch 450 degree titanium plate flat iron in giraffe design. 450 degrees is the hottest flat iron in the market. Nano titanium technology allows you to be able to style your hair with ease and not worry about snagging and frizz. In addition, it is lightweight-strength and even heat distribution. The titanium plates are an extraordinary conductor of heat that emits negative ions and far infrared heat. Using this flat iron using this flat iron will help eliminate the frizz as it gets close to the cuticle to make your hair smooth and shiny. Additionally, it helps reserve more moisture in the hair shaft.
          flatironstand
          The flat iron comes with a stand. I think most, if not all come with one. While you are using the flat iron and need to place it down for a moment, you can just set it in the stand without worrying if you are burning your table or counter.
          heatprotectant
          . ThermalShine Spray is a formula that is used to protect your hair from heat products such as flat irons, curling irons, and hair dryers. This product is non-greasy, lightweight micro mist-spray that will reduce frizz while making your hair soft and make it shine. ThermalShine is for all hair types. In addition, by using this product it will protect your hair from infrared heat damage that will cause your hair to have split-ends, frizz, and so on. Spray on wet or dry hair, Style with a hair dryer, flat iron, or any other hair styling products you have. Your hair is guaranteed to shine brilliantly.
          My Verdict
          If you use heating tools on your hair, you will want to use this spray. I found my hair to detangle easier with this spray on. My hair is very long and can be unmanageable at times once I sprayed this on; I was able to untangle the knots. Not only is this great for tangles this is imperative so that you do not look like you stuck your finger in a light socket! Without this product you could look like that! Do not fry your hair. Make sure you protect it with heat protectant such as this.

          On the left is my hair before using the Cortex 450 Flat Iron. On the right is after. As you can see my hair is a lot straighter.

          My Verdict
          I really loved this product. I never have used a flat iron before so this was my first experience. I have tried using a hair dryer and straightening it that way but that does not work so well. Now my typical routine just went to drying my hair naturally and tossing it in a ponytail so that it would be easier. I do not have to do that now if I want to have my hair straight. With my flat iron I can now flat iron my hair and have it be more controlled. I was hesitant to try a flat iron because I was always afraid that my hair would be frizzy and it would fry my hair to pieces. I found that it did not fry my hair; instead it eliminated my frizz and added shine. Additionally, I used it at 350 degrees and it only took me about 10 minutes to straighten my hair.

          I was given the opportunity to try various products through this Paris France company Votre Vu. I will tell you a little about the company and then show you the wonderful products I have received.
          About Votre Vu

          A family of skin care artisans in France sought to create luxurious and effective anti-aging skin care treatments. For 80 years, they custom blended botanically driven crèmes, toners, masques, and other award-winning formulations exclusively for high-end European spas and dermatologists to use in professional skin care treatments. In 2007, an American entrepreneur endeavored to bring the best naturally-based skin care to the U.S market and beyond, but at prices lower than comparable products. Intuitively, he went straight to the ultimate source of prestige skin care: France. There the two parties artisan and visionary were united, and Votre Vu was born.

          Votre Vu Bebe Duette Luxe Lips Lip Balm and Tarte D’ Amande Luxe hand cream
          The Luxe Lips lip balm and Luxe hand cream come in a two pack. The one I received is the variety pack that is a dynamic duo of moisturizing lip balm that has a hint of framboise (raspberry) and a clear lip balm with almond pie nutrient hand cream. Let’s take a look at the packaging and I will explain each one of these in detail. Both of these products are beautiful and are one of my favorite hand creams.

          This Luxe Lips Framboise (raspberry) will penetrate your lips and moisturize them. The lip balm is made with coconut; sunflower and premiere pressed castor oils. In addition, it has Shea butter and beeswax which will help protect and soften your lips. This product has a light citrus, natural passion fruit flavor. Additionally, it is infused with anti-aging formulas and UV filters to give you the ultimate protection. The second one is the clear Luxe Lips Duette that has all the same ingredients in them except it is not infused with framboise (raspberry).
          I love the design of this bottle. The feature of having lip balm on the top and hand cream below is a fantastic addition to this product. The mirror makes this product even more portable so that you can see while on the go if you need to apply this product. The lip balm is very moisturizing and has a sweet scent. I did not find the aroma overpowering.

          If you open the cap that is attached to the lip balm, you will see the hand cream product. This hand cream will leave your hands exceptionally soft. Almond and coconut fragrance will send you off into paradise. This absorbs deeply into your skin leaving your skin feeling smooth as silk. The formula of sunflower, grape seed and jojoba oils along with aloe, wheat proteins, and sun filters for UVA/UVB protection will keep your skin looking younger while making your skin hydrated.

          The hand cream is velvety smooth and not overly thick. You can feel your skin being hydrated and it does not leave it feeling greasy. Once applied all over your hands, you can apply a very thin coat over it again to give it extra protection and lock in more moisture to your skin.

          votrevuserum
          Best Regards serum is a treatment for dry skin and when your skin is more prone to be dry and need repair. This serum will repair, regenerate, and relieve continuously. When you wake up in the morning, your skin will feel hydrated, smooth, and rejuvenated. Natural acids, lactic, amino, and hyaluronic, synchronize well together to supply moisture to your skin every hour. Essential oils give this product a subtle aroma.
          I cannot describe the scent . However, it smells fabulous. This serum is a cream base and not thick heavy serums like most serums usually are. You only need a tiny amount to get the results you are looking for. (from the website) Apply a generous amount of sérum using your fingertips and gently massage into skin. Use circular motions to apply from the center of the face to the outer edges. Use light, upward movements on the neck and décolleté. For best results, apply Best Regards Sérum Hydratant under your night crème of choice.
