As part of a product review, I received a sample pack from L'Bri Pure N' Natural 

"L'BRI was founded by Linda and Brian Kaminski in 1998. Philosophically, we want to provide quality, affordable aloe vera-based skin care, beauty, and nutritional products, as well as to share the "joy" of positive, prosperous, healthy living with others.

Sample Pack

I also received a full beauty regimen of Aloe Vera Barbadensis Jelly (Barbadensis is the main ingredient as opposed to water), Exfoliating Face and Body Scrub, Toner, Facial Peel and Eye Repair Cream

All products worked divine after using them for several weeks.  My skin was again hydrated after several weeks of neglect and products were for the most part unscented.  

Face peel, however, was very good but did not peel as I expected. 
I think of peels like peeling a mask off of your face (like in the movies LOL)
It was easy to remove with a damp cloth and had the promised effect on my skin after removal

As part of a product review I received the La Fresh eco-beauty sampler pack which included 5 travel size individually packed wipes of makeup remover, oil-free face cleanser (scented), oil-free face cleanser, body soother, hand sanitizer and of course, nail polish remover.

The convenience of having these packs around specially during travel is priceless.  it fits in my makeup bag and CAN go on my carry-on luggage.  During my last trip, refreshing is very important during a 12-hour flight and nothing can be brought conveniently onto the plain.  These were a life saver.

of course I love the nail polish remover wipes.  Removes all 10 nails (used 2 for very dark colors) again, fits into my little manicure-tool bag and always ready to go.

My favorite product was the face cleaner the set came into this pretty carrying case that can also be taken anywhere you go.  Am not always in the mood to wash my face especially when am tired OOORRR have my hair straightened because somehow my hair always ends up wet and curling up just from washing my face and I can't afford not to clean my face after a long day so I love these wipes.  Had a wonderful scent paraben free and also removed makeup while leaving my face nicely La Fresh... I mean refreshed.

Check out their sets HERE prices vary.  Highly recommended.

Christmas Mani :)

Holidays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! one of my favorite times of the year~ and non-stop Christmas carols :)
Santa baby!!!!!!!! LoL

I finally got around to doing my holiday inspired manis using the new Gals stamping plates that I got for review (full review of the plates' collections coming soon)

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Above I decided to use GA15 from the Gals Princess Set  in red and green.  The accent nail was inspired by Cosmetic Sanctuary's mani... simply gorgeous.  I had to try it... 
Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Before I became an office polish addict, all the designs I ever did were French Manicures with slight variations then my first experiment with bold colors was Masglo's Sangre de Toro above and since became my favorite brand and one of my favorite colors of all times.  I ran into it searching through the stash and gave it a Christmasy touch with GA27 from the Gals Fairy Set.

What do you think??? I love reading your comments.

Makeup Brushes by Beauty 9

Makeup application definitely has its techniques and tricks and a set of good brushes is essential to achieve the best results regardless of your skills. 

I received this set of brushes by Beauty 9 for review and have been using them for a couple of months now. When I first opened them some of the hairs on the brushes were coming out so I was skeptical. However, after only a few uses all hairs settled nicely and the lose ones gone and have not lost anymore hairs since not even when I wash them to clean them. (pheeeew)

the set comes in a pouch with magnetic closure and individual pockets to keep the brushes in perfect condition for storage or travel.

The set Includes

1 Foundation Brush - 3 colored Nylon bristle - Use this brush to apply liquid or cream foundation.

1 Lip Brush - Sable

1 Large Eyeshadow Brush - made of Pony hair. Use to apply eye shadow over eyelid and to cover large surfaces.

1 Small Eyeshadow Brush - made of Sable hair. This brush has a rounded tip to light up and intensify the look as well as a more precise application. 

1 Eyebrow Brush - made of Pahmi hair - ideal for drawing smooth lines. I even use it as an "eyeliner" with wet shadow for intense looks.

1 Eyebrow Comb/Brush - made of Nylon/Stainless Steel to comb and shape eyebrows and even remove excess mascara on lashes. 


1 Powder Brush - A1 Goat hair-wood handle. Use this brush for powder application. Great for fixing the initial base.

Of course Maya had to perform her own inspection of the brushes.. lol.

I really like this set. It's very difficult to find a good and complete set of brushes for a good price.  You can get on their site for $49.00.

Nailtini: Speakeasy Lacquer Collection


I was sooo looking forward to reviewing a Nailtini Collection.  It's a cocktail for nails (EEEEEEEK) with Appletinis being my favorite cocktail I knew I would love it either straight or mixed :) 

Nailtini's Speakeasy collection is a real treat containing two creamy colors and two complimenting glitters.
from left to right: Sidecar, Dark & Stormy, Millionaire and Rusty Nail (there's nothing rusty about this color)
Sidecar is a light brown shade with Millionaire being its glitter companion... Dark & Stormy is a between brown and gray, at first didnt seem too promising but i was pleasantly surprised.  Rusty nail is a high-shine glitter gorgeous alone or as a top layer.   

Perfect fall collection but I can see it all year 'round.  

(Sorry for the busted cuticles - hangnail gone wild!) but look at how gorgeous and complimenting they are.
Photobucket Photobucket

For the accent sticker I used JobyNailArt's Thanksgiving collection that I also received for review.  For this particular one I thought the fall leaf would be a perfect accent.  The stickers were durable and at the same time easy to remove when the time to remove came :) Check them out of Facebook (special price $2.99)

Look at sidecar and millionaire together and stamping with Cheeky Jumbo plate A.
Photobucket Photobucket

The Speakeasy collection is a real treat! 
colors glide easily on nails, fast drying and great coverage.  All above in 2 coats.  The glitters are gorgeous shades Millionaire has some green bars for an unexpected umph! gorgeous!  Rusty was a little thicker with gray and copper glitters.  

Individual bottles retail for $13.00

Nailtini also has lip and eye collections.  To learn more visit their site and be sure to like them on Facebook. I can't wait to try out their other products.
