Aging Gracefully with Plastic Surgery

Susan Geston, married to Jeff Bridges, is your typical Hollywood actress, but she knows good plastic surgery. I'd put her in the category of Sharon Stone and Sally Fields. 

She's definitely had work done, but she still looks like herself! She’s older, but she’s obviously gone about cosmetic surgery the right way. And why is that? I'd put my money on the fact that she’s probably done surgery in strides as she's aged. 

Remember that a little bit at a time is so much better than everything all at once!

We're trying to enhance our look with cosmetic surgery, not ruin them. Take a lesson from Susan Geston and go about plastic surgery the right way.

Silky Smooth: Bath and Body Works Exfoliates My Skin

I picked up Bath and Body Works' Lavender & Sandalwood Olive Oil Body Scrub because they were having a 75% off sale so I picked it up for just $6!

I decided to test it out in my shower after my work out so I definitely needed a good scrub. And this product was the exfoliation I needed.

It really felt like I was scrubbing away all the dead skin cells on my body. It was gentle but tough enough to make me feel clean and renewed.

The scrub was definitely moisturizing, but it left a thin layer of grease on my skin that I wasn't too fond of. It took a little wiping to get to the feel off my skin, but it did come off fairly easily.

I give it 4 kisses.

It's available for $6 (originally $16.50!) on

Urban Decay Nocturnal Shadow Box Keeps My Look Lasting All Night

My best friend surprised me with Urban Decay Nocturnal Shadow Box, which I was happy to test out.

The palette includes 12 shades: ABC Gum, Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, Baby, Half Baked, Riff, Delete, Fireball, Backfire, Lounge, Armor, Heroine, and Blackout.

I played around with ABC Gum, which is a light beige, Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, which is a metallic pink, Baby, which is light pink, and Backfire, which is a deep purple.

Each of the colors are incredibly pigmented and blend easily to create a flawless look. And what's even better is the pigments stayed in place and lasted all night long.

I give it 5 kisses.

It's available on for $29.

Macaroon Lip Balm Fixes Your Sweet Tooth

Investing in one of CuteBalms' Macaroon Lip Balms was an easy decision. I love macaroons and I love lip balm so it was a win-win.

I picked up the vanilla balm in the pink macaroon packaging. I'll have to be honest, the balm itself didn't really smell or taste like vanilla. It didn't really smell like anything. Because of the packaging and how hard the balm is, it's a bit difficult to get enough of the balm on your lips.

It's an incredibly light lip product as well, which makes it perfect for application right before bed, but definitely not your go-to for braving winter winds. It does stay on your lips for a few minutes before soaking in, giving your lips the right amount of moisture before going to sleep.

You definitely pay for the packaging rather than the product, but at under $5, I'd say it's worth it.

I give it 4 kisses.

It's available on for $4.78.

Kiss Cracked, Dry Skin Goodbye with Vaseline

I needed a new go-to lotion and I oddly enough took a chance on a product my boyfriend uses. I picked up Vaseline's Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant today while at the grocery store, looking for toothpaste.

After I showered, I decided to give my new lotion a test-run. I was amazed. After just one generous application, my skin was so smooth. It even made my hands (which are dry from the weather and from lifting weights) soft and silky to the touch.

And because it has cocoa butter in it, the lotion smells like chocolate. So really, what else could you possible want from a lotion? I felt like I was glowing after I used it! My skin hasn't looked better all winter.

I give it 5 kisses.

It's available on for $5.79.

Beach Goddess Palette Gives Us Sunny, Sophisticated, and Smiley

Ashley Tisdale is back at it again. She's created a few of my current favorite beauty products, including her eyeshadow and blush palette named Beach Goddess.

This 12-shade palette, which consists of shades Seychelles, St. Bartis, Maui, Fiji, Belize, Barbados, Tahiti, Aruba, St. Lucia, Cabo, Bora Bora, and Bermuda, is everything I could have asked for in a palette. These pigments, all mixes of pinks, peaches, and browns, feature a bit of shimmer and a lot of color.

Each shade gives you unparalleled color and the blushes blend perfectly with my BlendSMART brush! I was blown away by these colors.
I give this palette 5 kisses.

It's available on for $10.99.

Bring On the Highlight: Urban Decay Shines Through the Competition

Urban Decay's After Glow Highlighter Palette holds 4 different, incredible shades: Cliché, No Angel, O.N.S.,  and Wicked.
Cliché is the lightest with yellow undertones while No Angel is a light peach, O.N.S. is a darker peach, and Wicked is a light pink.

The mirror within the compact reads, "Get it on. Glow. Repeat." And boy, is it right. These four shades provide incredible shimmers. I tend to use both Cliché and No Angel on a daily basis for the best highlight for my skin tone.

Just a little swipe of this pigment gives me a great day look while a thorough application gives me a fabulous night look.

I give this product 5 kisses.

It's available on for $19 (a sale!).

Ashley Tisdale's Illuminate Defines My Cheekbones

Ashley Tisdale partnered with Illuminate Cosmetics to create her own line of pigmented (and gorgeous, might we add!) eyes shadow palettes, bronzers, blushes, and more.

I picked up her Illuminating Shimmer in Beach Bum and Shimmering Sand. These two shades are perfect for me. The lighter of the two, Shimmering Sand, is a more natural look and Beach Bum gives me the glamour I need for a night out.

These two powders are soft and apply so easily. They blend perfectly with my BlendSMART brush and give me a great sun-kissed look.

I give these shimmers 5 kisses.

They're available on for $7.50.

Urban Decay 24/7 Troublemaker Set for All Day Glamour

Like any beauty guru, with my holiday season, came plenty of new makeup! I was excited to see Santa graced with Urban Decay's 24/7 Troublemaker Mascara and Eye Pencil Duo.

This mascara's wand is sturdy and has different spaced and sized spokes for full coverage. The mascara goes on easily, leaving my lashes long and thick. I typically apply my mascara and then curl my lashes because I find that this order keeps my lashes curled for longer and I did have an issue with clumping here.

Plus, look how cute the packaging is! Who can say no to that?

The eye pencil is incredible. So pigmented and easy to apply, the pencil easily coats my waterline and gives me a sharp cat-eye so I can rock every look.

I should note that I accidentally slept in my Troublemaker Mascara (a big no-no, I know!) and I did wake up the next morning with puffy, red, and stinging eyelids.

I give this product 4 kisses.

It's available on for $28.
