Maybelline Shine Compulsion by ColorSensational

Hi guys I am going to give you my honest review about what I thought of The Maybelline Shine Compulsion line.

I received the Lipstick in shade 085-Pink Fetish and the Lip Liner in shade 145- Very Cherry( in photo swatched from left to right) complimentary from Influenster!

Normally when I wear lipsticks it chaps my lips and they peel because my lips are sensitive and can not handle certain ingredients. Sort of like a lipstick ” allergic reaction.” I’m able to use some drug store and high end brands like Maybelline, Wet n Wild, MUFE, Urban Decay, and Sephora Collection lipsticks.

Therefore, before receiving these products I was so happy to learn that they are both oil based and do not dry or irritate my lips. The formula is smooth, it’s pigmented, the color is vibrant, and it leaves my lips moisturized. So happy I received it and am able to wear it with no problems.

Definitely one of the best drug store brand lipsticks I’ve tried! I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Weight loss and Diet Pills Rant

Over the course of my Weight Loss or fitness journey I was introduced to a few Weight loss pills, like” Garcinia Cambogia, Body Labs Thermo Pills(yes the one’s with Jennifer Lopez on it) and the Classic Raspberry Ketone Pills.”

I must say that none of these worked for me and they may help people who are a bigger weight than me. I believe these supplements are used based on whether people are overweight. It in fact made me gain weight, instead of helping me lose weight. Which has drawn me to the conclusion that none of these work at all.

    As I continued my Weight loss or Fitness journey I learned  the best way for someone to  lose weight was to change your lifestyle by drinking more water, exercising, and eating healthy. It is up to you to make the lifestyle changes and commit to this lifestyle change. Creating a meal plan and workout guide to follow are the first steps and he  you must be consistent with it to see results. The more dedicated, committed, and determined you are, the better the results you will get. You can get into shape faster than you think but it does take sometime depending on your current lifestyle and making a change in it.

Eat, Sleep, and Repeat.

Sexy Toned Legs and Glutes

Hi today I will be sharing my favorite workouts for toned legs and glutes.

1. Curtsy Squats

2. Bavarian Squat Lunge

3. Barbell deadlifts

4. Leg Press

5. Glute bridges

6. Jump squats

7. Classic Squats

8. Cable kick backs

9. Standing donkey kick backs

10. Calve raises

Beginners should do 10 reps with 2 sets.

Intermediate level should do 10 reps with 3 sets.

Advanced level should do 10 reps with 4 sets each.

Please divide reps for each leg.

So if it is 2 sets of 10, then 10 reps should be done per leg for a beginners level.

2 sets of 15 reps per leg which would be great for an intermediate level.

2 sets of 20 per leg for an advanced level.

You do not need to perform all of them. Choice 5 of them to start.

If you are not familiar with any of these exercises feel free to search them on YouTube. These are good to do in the comfort of your home with small substitutions, like using a towel or pole, instead of using a barbell, or a resistance band instead of a cable..

The more you do it the BETTER the results! Please keep in mind you will need tests in between and please do not forget to squeeze your glutes while performing the exercises!

Clairol Color Crave

Hi today I will writing about my experience with Clairol Color Crave.

I received 2 products from Influenster and Clairol for free to review. I got the Clairol Color Crave Hair Makeup in Rose Gold and the Clairol Color Crave Semi-Permanent Color in Scarlet. 

 

The Hair Makeup was the first product I tried. It’s pretty simple all you do is brush it on to your hair, then blow dry it. The thing I like is that it is not permanent so it comes out with shampoo, maybe after like 3 to 4 washes. It’s pretty and glittery. I love how it looks on my curly/wavy blonde hair. 

The Semi-Permanent Dye was the last product I tried. It is by far the best red shade I have seen it my life. It’s bright and pretty. Not bad if you want to go from blonde to red. It takes good and does not wash out fast like the Hair Makeup. 

Both products were good and did not dry out my hair. They left my hair very soft I must say. The products are very easy and simple to use. If you like to change your hair frequently, then this is the best brand for you.

To conclude I must say that I like the Hair chalk more. Since it is easy to use and has an easy tube with a sponge applicator and it rinses out with shampoo. I’d recommend it to anyone. Thanks so much for these products Influenster and Clairol.

L’Oreal El Vive Revive Oil Review

Hi loves, today I will be doing a review on L’Oréal Paris new hair care line called, “ ElViveRevive”. This product is used to repair hair in multiple ways. I received the product for free from Influenster.

I received The Extraoridinary Oil. My first impression of this product was that it was an actual oil based product and not a spray like most of their oils are. It smells amazing and smells like Camellia and Sunflower oils. It can be used for versatile reasons. Like being used on dry, damp, or frizzy hair. It leaves the hair very smooth and is very lightweight. Therefore, it does not weigh the hair down. I like to saturate my curls/waves in it, and apply it before blow drying and straightening my hair. It leaves the hair very shines and I would recommend it to anyone with damaged hair. It repairs the hair in so many ways.
