All Natural Face: Fix-it Spray


Fix-it Spray by All Natural Face...

This is to be the equivalent of the MAC Fix+ Spray....Only Affordable! Now Personally I have never used the MAC one, (b/c of price & income issues, which I'm sure you all understand) This Spray Works great! It makes my Mineral Foundation, look liquid!!!

The Blurb from the site:
So....MAC thought of this...and I improved it:) heheA natural alternative to keeping your eyeshadow and eyeliner smudge proof and in place all day...and it doubles as a hydration mist and sealant for your foundation as well:) It gives you a foiled look for your shadows you just wont believe!The bottle is 1 oz. It is a spray top. Spray both sides of your brush...dunk in minerals and apply. As a mist...simply mist your face after you are done applying your cosmetics...and whenever you would like to feel refreshed during the day. This really sets your makeup for the day and gives you a wonderful flawless look to your foundation.This will now allow you to use the shadows and liners in all kinds of cool and fun ways! Think of the possibilities with the colors!
I give this Product a 4 out of 5
~ I can't wear this when I know it's going to be a hot day. I have oily skin, so when I know I'm going to be outside for long periods of time, I chose not to use it, so that I don't become 'shiny' :)
To FTC or whomever else it may concern, I received this product from All Natural Face, with the agreement that I would review it, But that I would give my personal opinion, whether it be Positive or Negative, With no sway from the Company.

All Natural Face mineral Foundation:

Mineral Foundation :

Ok, a few months ago I was on the look out for a new mineral foundation because the one I had been using was making me dry and flaky....Not something you really want!! So I started asking around, and I heard about The All Natural Face's mineral foundations...So I ordered a sample, and I fell in love!!!

This is what I suggest:

Step 1: Go to and order her sample kit...she'll send a TON of baggies with samples of each color in the face category that you pick...

Step 2: Play around with the colors, and determine which one is best for you...both in indoor lighting and in the great outdoors.

Step 3: Order your color!

This foundation has great coverage...and it's 'All Natural!'

Also comes in Mousse and Compact form!

this product is a 5 out of 5!

They have great pigment, and are a really smooth quality! And when paired with the All Natural Face eyeshadow primer, they last all day long!!!! (Check out my review here)

There are 35 matte colors, and 18 shimmer colors!!!!
I would give these a 4 out of 5!!!

Quick Nail Fix


Have you ever been on your way to a wedding or some type of party? And you just painted you nails...and it peels? And you search but can't find your top coat, or the nail polish you used, to do a touch up?

Well my mom had this problem on the way to a wedding in Alabama...Her polish peeled, but it didn't completely come off. We had no nail polish or anything in the car. All I had was hair spray for a quick touch up for our hair.
So I was thinking...If hair spray can keep your hair in place, why not your nail polish?

How to do this:

1: Spray some under the peeled section of polish.
2: Push section down lightly
3: Do a light coat of Spray over top.
4:Let dry, and enjoy!

This is not a permanent fix...This is just a few hours...Long enough for you to have fun!

I Dyed my hair with COFFEE


Yes you read that correctly...Coffee... But I was pretty bad...I didn't take any before and after you'll just have to trust what I say :)

This is how I did it...

*I did wash my hair right before I did this, because I had been swimming a lake earlier, and I wanted it to be going on a clean surface...

1: Have about 3-4 cups of room temperature coffee

2: I added a splash of Vanilla extract, to cut back on the coffee sent (optional)

3: Douse your hair about 15 times with a cup, in the coffee.

4: Let it sit on your hair for at least 30 min...(can do more if you want it to be darker)

*Don't wrap your hair in a towel, because the towel will soak up the coffee, instead of your hair :)

5:Rinse your hair, until your water runs clear.

You don't have to condition your hair, because the coffee is it's own conditioner...My hair feels SOOO soft! and shiny!

My hair is already a dark brown, but I have noticed that lately it is getting even darker, so my roots are 2-3x's darker than my ends. Causing my hair to look greasy/oily...NOT a pretty sight, when you know it's clean! So now my ends are pretty much the same color as my roots, and my whole head is Shiny and soft.

Would I do this again?

For dying my hair? No, because my hair is already so dark, that it didn't do that much to it...unless I need to quickly dye my ends to match my roots. don't get me wrong it worked!

For a deep Conditioning Treatment? MOST DEFINITELY!

Hair types this will most likely work the best on:

Blonde's, who want a quick change, that doesn't cost a lot of money, and isn't more chemicals going on your already bleached hair (the latter for the ones who've dyed it blonde)

It'll work fantastically for you!
P.S. I'll let y'all know how fast it washes out!

The All Naturla Face = One of my new favorite makeup companies! I absolutly love their products! There isn't anything I don't like yet...And I've officially tried quit abit! But this posting is about the Eye Primer!


1) It's a really smooth formula,

2)Goes on GREAT!

3)Not oily (unlike too face shadow insurance)

4)Makes your shadow last for a LONG time!

5)Great Price @ only $3.00 (and you get a TON!)


1)The only thing I would have to say was a con for this eye primer would be that it's a tad dark for me! But I cover it up with no one knows that :) so it's not really a con :)

I can't wait to try out her other colors! (I think she has 3 in all)

Finding 'The' Easter Dress!

Judy Garland & Fred Astair In Easter Parade....Don't you just love her dress? White all over with just a hint of color with the Gloves?!?!

My search for 'the' Easter Dress this year was alright...Personally I'm short enough that it's not that hard for me to find one that comes to the middle of my knee or below (personal standard ladies) But my sister on the other hand...Wasn't so lucky! She has the long legs in the family and every dress she tried on was either too big (she's a skinny girl) or too short! Talk about Stressful! We finally found one at Belk for her....Not one that she would have necessarily of picked herself...but cute just the same!

After finding the Dress...It's time for accessories! My Dress is a Black & White Polka Dot (large polka dots) dress...and on Easter I prefer more color than that...So I found a bright Yellow Belt for it!!! (Love this) and some yellow earrings...I'm not much of a jewelry wearer but I needed some more yellow...I Really wanted Yellow Heels for this dress too...but I couldn't find any...I found a really cute pair of yellow stilettos (matched the belt perfectly) but they were above my 'high level' (another personal standard)

This is a good idea of what my dress looks like minus the rose....(I paint shopped in the Yellow belt :)

What about you? How did your Easter Dress Shopping go? Anything about the styles that you didn't like? Did you find 'THE' dress? or just have to settle for one?
I would love to hear!

On the Search for 'the' Mineral Foundation!

Review #1:

Physician's Formula:

What They Say about their product:
>Mineral Wear® features the finest selection of minerals:
>Mineral Extracts, including Malachite, Rhodochrosite and Smithsonite help protect skin from environmental stress and enhance collagen production.
>Mineral Water enriched with skin beneficial minerals, like calcium and magnesium, enables us to create mineral cream and liquid formulations
>Boron Nitride for a soft natural glow
>Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide provide natural mineral sunscreens
>Mica, a gentle and lightweight mineral, provides a smooth, natural coverage
>For extra sensitive or breakout-prone skin!
>Minimalist formula helps reduce irritation and breakout.
>Offers the performance and coverage of a foundation with the blendability and natural finish of a loose powder in one easy step.
>Innovative sifter lid helps contain mess.
>Brush snaps in place for ease of use and convenient storage.

My Thoughst on the Product:
Covers well, and a good price. Now I've heard reviews of how this was a great product, but not for me. When I first started using it (like 1st couple of times) it was fine. But then I noticed that it started making my face feel dry, and tight. Not what you want... But I continued to use it, because I had paid for it. (I didn't want to waste any) And now I've talked to some friends of mine that have used it, and they say the same thing. So needless to say, I wont be buying this brand again.

I give it a 2/5 (only b/c of the price and cover)

What about you? Have you ever used Physician's Formula? And what did you think about it?

Review: Mark's That's Deep Cleanser

Recently, I have switched to Mark's face wash regimen. I'm still in the process of getting everything the skin line has to offer, right now, I have the cleanser, moisturizer, and some hook-ups on the way. But today's Review is on the cleanser!

that's deep-Purifying gel cleanser:
(their blurb about it)
If you’re a total clean freak then try this super-fresh, soap-free cleanser blended with sugar maple and black willow bark. It goes right to work to banish dirt, oil and other cloggers. Skin feels fresh, fabulous and ready to face the world.
6.7 fl. oz.
oil-free • non-comedogenic • fragrance-free .

Super ingredients: sugar maple & black willow bark
Best for: blemishes & blackheads
What is it?:it's a soap-free cleanser
How Much?: $8, and it lasts you 2-3 months at the least, depending on how much you use @ a time.
My thoughts:This Face wash is pretty cool. It leaves your skin feeling soft, and not as tight as other cleansers with Salicylic Acid or Benzoyl Peroxide do.
Personally, I have oily skin, and larger pores(which cause the extra oil :( ) But my breakouts are not's more of a once in awhile type of thing. I was getting tired of having to use harsh products like the Acid/Peroxide on my face, so I started looking around for something more natural. And that's when my Aunt started selling AVON/mark. So I started looking into their product, and liked what I saw, and asked for samples...and I LOVED IT!

How To use this Cleanser:
Dampen Face with warm water. Squeeze a small amount onto hand and rub in circular motions on your face, until it begins to lather. Then rinse it off.

To Know what your personal Skin Care line is through mark. take their skin care test!
Skin Quiz!

Other Products that go with this cleanser are:

Berry Gran & go with the grain exfoliating beads, that you add to your cleanser once a week.

Need an AVON rep? contact Julie Hull @ or shop her store now,

*moisturizer review coming soon!

*FTC disclaimer, I purchased this product myself. And decided to review it myself.

Skin MD Natural -Product Review/Giveaway!


One Day Earlier this Month (The beginning) I received an e-mail, asking if I would like to get a free full size bottle of Skin MD Natural Lotion to try and review...and I said, 'sure why not?' right? Free Product, and all I had to do was write a review later on.....

At first I was unsure if I personally wanted to put it on my skin...Lately, I've been having some skin problems...I've been getting these really weird dry patches all of a sudden showing up! (I have sensitive skin.) so I was hesitant...and then I thought..what could I loose, I'll end up with red blotches for a little bit until it works out....Wait, I'm already blotchy from my dry skin patches. hehe...Well I read the back of the bottle, and it says to use ever 6-8 hours until skin's moisture level improves then every 12-24 hours, And guess what...2 weeks later using this lotion morning and night...and any time I get out of the shower, or find a dry patch. They have disappeared! It's a great lotion, it goes on easily, and it doesn't leave you skin all oily and slimy like other lotions. I LOVE this lotion..and I'm going to keep on using it!!!

To Read other Great reviews, > Click Here <
On my scale, I would give it a 5/5!
