Dr. Feelgood

I'm In love with Dr. Feelgood! A Friend of mine (who's in college, and needs an easy way to keep her face looking good...not to mention she's a cosmetology major, recommended this to me.) While I was spending the weekend with her, she let me try some of her's....and I fell in love!

What is Dr. Feelgood?
This is a new idea for smooth, silky, matte skin. Its dr. feelgood - our complexion miracle worker! This colorless, weightless balm goes on bare skin or glides over makeup to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores while soaking up excess oil. Enriched with Vitamin A, C, and E, dr. feelgood is just what the doctor ordered for beautiful, healthy, skin!

Any Draw Backs?

The Ulta its about $28

But the nice thing is, I found in on ebay for half of that! So I'm one Happy Makeup Addict.


-I have oil/combo skin...mostly oil...and after a few hours of wearing makeup (full face: foundation, blush, powder, etc.) I'm shinny...but when I used Dr. Feelgood, I wasn't...My face looked matte, and it didn't get as oily as quick, it took double the time to get oily. I've worn by itself, under my makeup, and on top of, and it all works! and it makes your skin feel so smooth!

I definitely give this a 10 out of 10!

Ebay -Takes you right to the search for Dr. Feelgood

Finally! My ELF Haul!

Ok, so This has been in my 'Reviews' Tab for awhile now...but I'm finally getting around to it!
(Keep In Mind, this is my own personal opinion of the products I've purchased.)

Here's A Photo of how the products where shipped to me, and arrived.
What I Ordered:
-A Full Set of Brushes (Came w/ab 12)
-Eyeshadows...(9 of them)
-Eyeliners (3)
-Translucent Powder
-Shimmer Pallet
-Oil Blotting Sheets
1)The Brushes- I got the cheaper end of brushes from their site...For being $1 each they aren't bad, I've had/seen better, but if your just starting out, and don't have a lot of money...then these will work fine.
I did get one of their Studio Brushes, and I love it! Now these are more expensive...but still are not a bad price.
2)The Eyeshadows- Again, not bad for being $1, there is one shade that has like no pigment to it...what I mean is that when I swatched it on my finger, there was hardly any color there. But with the rest it was surprising! (1 of these will be in the giveaway)
3)Eyeliners- They say these are creamy and wont tug on your eye....That's not true...I do not recommend buying their takes quite a few strokes to get any color to show up.
4)Translucent Powder- This was actually bought by my mom...And she LOVES it! she keeps it in her purse and she highly recommends this product. She says its a nice light powder that takes away your shine....
5)Shimmer Palette- I love this, it has about 5 different colors, and It works good for highlighting your Cheeks! (It does crease when put on the lids....this can be used for cheeks, eyes, and lips) I haven't used it on my lips yet...but I will let you know later on.
6) Oil Blotters!-love, love, love these...they are life savers to me. I keep them in my purse and use them whenever my face gets too shiny (which happens to be basically all the time) so these are a must have for any one with an oily face!
7)Blush- I got their blush called Shy...And It's a really pretty pink....but it is pink, and I know not everyone loves pink, but yeah. Its a nice blush, and I can't wait to get a few more!
Now their sizes are not huge but for the price you're paying, I wasn't expecting it to be huge...but you do get a lot of product for what you pay...and over all I like e.l.f. and I will be getting more from them!
Visit e.l.f.
(Coming soon, the Haul on what I got from Ulta...and most of it will be in the giveaway....I got some great deals!)

Glam'eyes Mascara Review

Howdy Folks!
I've had this review up to do for a while now, and I have my ELF yet to do (can't wait!)

I absolutely love this Mascara!!!! It makes my lashes nice and dark....and thick!!! I personally don't have to worry about I go for the volume type mascaras, and normally the black color as well.

The Wand is a plastic comb...and it goes back and forth with a 3 row and a 2 row (sections with 3 rows of 'comb teeth' and then 2 rows of slightly longer)
So If your looking for a mascara that will make your lashes 'pop'....then I suggest Trying Rimmel's Glam'eyes Mascara!

On my scale, I would say this product was a 9 out of 10!
Where to purchase:
Wal-Mart: around $6 (not available online)
Can Find a most drug stores near you!

Stay Matte Rimmel Foundation

Ok Y'all, this is my first product review really, and I know you probably have other sites that you go to, to see what a product is like, but I hope that you will eventually come to my site as well to see my take on a product(s).

Review of Rimmel's Stay Matte Foundation:

A Couple of weeks ago, I went to Ulta, and bought Stay Matte Rimmel Foundation to try it. I usually can only use mineral makeup because of how oily my skin is, when I use liquid my face is shiny almost instantly and it always feels like it will just run off. But this Stay Matte Foundation Hasn't done any of this, In fact, I can put it on and my face will stay Matte for at least 10 hours (except for the normal amount of shine that comes from being in the heat, or just regular oil releasing from the skin...but you are basically Matte :), I have never had to wear it for a full 12 hrs, which is how long the bottle says it will keep your face flawless and shine-free.

When You put it on, it feels more like a tinted moisturizer than a foundation. And keeps your face feeling nice and soft.
I Personally am the Ivory, and it matches my skin tone almost if I happen to get a tone in one section, you can see it....I just have to blend it a bit more! I Hope this Review Helps you, and possibly persuades you to buy it.
You can Purchase this Product @ Ulta
I Recommend this Foundation and give it a 81/2 out of 10 on my charts....

To the FTC and whomever else it may concern, I bought this item with my own money and have not been, in any way encouraged to write a review, either positive or negative.

A Heads up on Review + Giveaway

I'm Supper Excited!!! My E.L.F. shipment came in today, along with an order I put in to ULTA!
I have some pictures of everything, but I need to get them uploaded, but I wanted to let you know that a review is definitely on the way!!! I can't wait to use everything that I bought....I was just testing the pigment of the eyeshadows from elf...and They all had really good pigment, the only one I might complain about was the truly pink, it did show up that well on my finger even after I rubbed my finger on it a couple of that one will take a lot more work to get it to show up.

I'm In the process of collecting things for my first blog tell your friends, once I hit 50+ Followers, I'm doing a giveaway....

Just a "Peak" at what will be in the giveaway...
- a Too Face Shadow Insurance (mini...but still a nice bit of product)
- elf eyeshadow in Periwinkle
-Pop eye primer (this one is a sample)
-plus a sample of smash box's Lash DNA mascara..(I've used this one, and it's really nice!)

Along with some other really cool samples....and I'm on the lookout for some more really cool things to add to my "stash" of giveaway items!
Just remember, this giveaway will take place once I've reach 50+ followers! Thought I would give y'all a heads up! Can't Wait!

~Tricks From Me To You~


Got Damaged Hair? And You don't want to spend $20 or more for a damage friendly Shampoo and Conditioner? Well I have a helpful hint!

1> Use Non-foaming face wash!!!! Yes I said Face wash... Now why would I be saying face wash? Because it doesn't contain the detergents found in lathering shamoos, so it won't damage your hair. And Guess WHAT! They actually used to wash babies' hair with it in the hopsitals! SO if it safe for your babies hair then It's good for yours....

Now if you have oily hair, just work the cleanser into your hair, and rinse....If you have dry hair, work the cleanser into your hair, and then follow up with a rich conditioner.

What kind? Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (photo above)

~Tricks From Me to You~


Useful Trick #2

Making Your Eyeshadow Last!

I know that here in the South, on hot days and such...that your eyeshadow can crease...and does so quite often. Ever Wonder how to stop that?

1: Buy some Eye Primer...You can get eye Primer from most Makeup Lines...Some of my favorites...

> Two Face Primer- Shadow Insurance....@ Sephora $17 or @ Ulta $17 (right now(9/09) get $3.50 off any $10 Purchase using code. 28166)

>Urban Decay-Primer Potion...@ Sephora $17-$22 or @ Ulta $17

>Micabella Eye Primer (this one lasts 4ever..but not cheap!! $44.95 Yicks!)

2: Can't afford to Get a Primer? Or just run out? Have no fear, for a quick use, get out your Lip Balm!

>Glide on a little lip balm- the thick waxy kind that comes in a stick...not the gel you get in a jar...put over your lids like a normal primer, and add your eyeshadow....

>I do suggest getting a good eye primer...but I understand if you have to save for it, or you forgot to get some last time you were in town, and now your out!

~Tricks from Me to You~


Hey Y'all,
I've Been thinking, and I know I have a hard time with my own Beauty Budget, and I thought...I bet other's are too...So Over the next few days, I'll be posting different Tricks for saving your wallet, and Helping you In a pinch! One's that Have helped me, and others that I've been hearing about from other people!
Useful Trick #1:
Clean Your Brushes....

If Your anything like me, (and are new to the makeup scene) You may not have known that you are supposed to wash your brushes every week...and use a brush cleaning spray everyday, to cut back on bacteria! So I want to tell you my/woman's world's sercret to doing this on a budget!

Your Everyday cleaning...
right now I use Sephora's Brush spray...just their mini's about $6! Not bad...Clinique has a large bottle for about $13 I think. It doesn't take much for this....

> Spray Directly on Bristles...then Wipe off on a clean/old fluffy towel, and do this till your make up is no longer on there make sure to put all the bristles together....then either hang upside down to dry, or set them on a towel, with the bristles hanging off the end,(this helps them to dry faster, and not send water to the glue end of your brush)

Weekly Cleaning...
There are a couple of ways to do this!

1: Use EVOO(extra virgin olive oil) on a paper towel folded in half 2 times. And rub your brushes into it, you will see the dirt on the towel...once done, rinse with warm water...Then take a sponge, wet it with the warm water, add a squirt of Baby shampoo to the sponge, and swirl your brushes thoroughly (this is to get the oil out of your brushes) wipe off with a fluffy/old towel. then either hang upside down or on the towel until dry.

^This will also soften any of your bristles that happen to be a tad stiff.

2: Get a Face wash (make sure it has nothing extra in anything for acne...) and do the same thing as you would with the baby shampoo, but skipping the oil step. Since the face wash already has the things for removing makeup in it, it will clean your brushes in no time!!! then wipe off, and either hang upside down or hanging slightly off a towel.

Face Wash I use...Clean & Clear's Makeup Removing Cleanser
Here's A List from Sephora of other useful Brush Cleaners!
