Baby Foot Does the Job

If you're someone who has dry feet or corns, or if you're a runner, this is the perfect product for making your feet look and feel baby soft. You'll need to set aside an hour, so we suggest sitting down to watch your favorite tv show.

You'll slide your feet in the booties, aka bags filled with the miracle gel. And just like that, you sit for an hour and let the lavender scented gel soak into your feet!

In about 5 days, your skin just falls off--no, not all your skin, just the dead skin. So as the dead cells shed, your soft, smooth skin is revealed!

I give this product 5 kisses!



It's available on www.babyfoot.com for $25.

Lancome: My Favorite Hello and Hardest Goodbye

I've been buying Lancome Definicils mascara on and off for as long as I can remember because I know this is the mascara I should always use, but I hate paying $27.50 for it (even though it's worth it).

This mascara goes on thin and never flakes. It's been consistent for as long as I've been buying it and makes my lashes look absolutely flawless. I just can't stress that enough. It's the best mascara I've ever used. I always think I'll find something just as good for half the price and I never do.

Plus, it comes in Black, Deep Black, and Deep Brown, so what more could you ask for from a mascara? I'm sure I'll cheat on it again because of its price, but I really do always come back to it.

I give it 5 kisses.

Urban Decay: Let's Talk Highlight

I need to rave about Urban Decay's Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter in shade Sin because Lord knows we've never seen a better highlighter.

I've had plenty of problems with highlighters being too sparkly, but this champagne highlighter is the perfect mix between sparkle and shimmer. The perfect compliment to my skin, the powder highlighter never feels cakey or looks greasy when applied.

As unnatural as makeup is, it really feels like it provides a natural accent on my cheekbones, giving me the "no makeup" makeup look.

I give it 5 kisses.

Beauty Protector: The Secret to Shine

I'm big on styling my hair, which means I'm also big on protecting my hair from damage. Naturally, hair oil is a favorite of mine.

I was stoked when I came across Beauty Protector's Hair oil. Not only does it smell a little like cotton candy, it really does "keep hair healthy, shiny and happy," just like the bottle says.

I first used the product right after I had straightened my hair. It instantly gave my hair shine and revitalized my ends. My hair lost its frizz and my baby hairs were tamed! It doesn't even make my hair greasy. This could be the best hair oil I've used so far.

I give this hair oil 5 kisses.

NYX Liquid Suede


I have to rave about another one of my favorite products, NYX Liquid Suede cream lipstick. 

Let's start with the packaging. Cute and simple, it does its job and shows how much of the lip color you have left. 

What about the applicator? Perfection in a brush! Angled to ease application, the brush makes it easy to create straight, crisp lines, giving you a glamorous look (for just $8.99!). While it does smudge easily, the cream is soft and hydrating, and dries with a matte finish.

And last, but certainly not least, I have handle of their shades, but my favorite by far is Soft-Spoken, a muted rose.

I give it 5 kisses.


It's available on www.nyxcosmetics.com for $7.00, normally, but it's currently on sale for $4.90!

#GRLPWR is a Let Down

For obvious reasons, I was psyched when I got my hands on The Beauty Crop's #GWRPWR Matte Liquid Lipstick. Mixing feminism with matte lipstick? Who wouldn't be won over? And I was a sucker for the shade "Imma Bawse," a dark red wine color.

But my excitement was crushed the minute I cracked open the tube and tried to put on the lipstick. The product itself is strangely thick and doesn't spread well,  so if you rely on rubbing your lips together to even out the color, this product isn't for you.

I put on one layer and then went over it to even out my lines. I had it on for about 5 minutes when it felt like the lipstick was disintegrating off my face. I looked in the mirror to see the color crumbling off my lips. And to top it off, the product was streaky AND dry.

Unfortunately, I was only impressed by the cute name of this lipstick.

I give it 1 kiss.



It's available on thebeautycrop.com for $14.95.

Say Aloha to Beautiful Lips

As if the Hawaiians already didn't have everything we want, they even have the best beauty products.

Luckily, they're sharing.

Hanalei, the beauty company based in Honolulu, knows how to treat chapped and sun dried lips. Their lip treatment is a gift from the gods to women struggling in dry weather, whether it's hot or cold.

Hanalei suggests using their product before bedtime (or throughout the day) so I followed instruction. I was happy to discover that the treatment while hydrating, isn't sticky and thick. It feels just like lip balm, but has the power of a treatment. Is it cheesy to say it feels like a vacation for your lips? But really, who can resist the shine it gives your lips?

Think it can't get better? It can. Because Hanalei makes products 100% from kukui nut oil, the product is unscented and also 100% natural.

I give it 5 kisses.
