First and foremost, I like to acknowledge that I am in love with the cosmetic bag. Ipsy outdid themselves does bag I like the color and size. As far as the products go, I received the Eva NYC Mane Magic 10 and one primer. It claims to detangled, strengthen, and add shine to the hair. It also protects against damage and speeds up drying time. This is a new product to me I will keep you posted on how I feel about it through Instagram. Another product in this month’s subscription is Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Mini. I am very excited to try this product out since it claims to enhance the radiance of the skin it also helps to minimize the look of fine lines, spots, and uneven texture. Again, I will keep you posted on Instagram if you have not yet followed me, please do so to get an update.

The last three are make-up products. First is a contour from The Balm cosmetics in the shade Bahama Mama perfect for Spring and Summer days. Secondly, is an eyeshadow from an unfamiliar brand to me in color Chestnut. The final product is a Blush and Glow from So Susan another unknown brand to me. However, this blush is a beautiful color again perfect for the upcoming warm days.

You can see Ipsy outdid themselves with these excellent products and all under $11 including shipping and handling. I enjoy receiving this subscription month after month because I get to test new products and if I like the products every purchases them. In my opinion, it is an excellent way to test products without spending too much money. I hope you enjoyed this blog, please comment and share.

How I unwind

Hi Lifestylers,

Welcome back to Blogmas two! Today I like to share with you how I unwind after a long week during the holiday season. We live in a fast-paced world and sometimes we need to stop to appreciate the little things in life. To function in this fast-paced world, we need to indulge in self-care at least once a week. My favorite thing to do to unwind during this time of year is to watch holiday movies.

Netflix, a cup of coffee, and a facial mask are some of my favorite things to do.  Netflix has a good selection of holiday movies. Currently, we are experiencing what us Angelino’s considered cold weather (60 degree days). We are spoiled in California. Hydrating my skin if necessary to keep it looking young and healthy. These little things make a difference in my life and allow to relax. By the way, this post is not sponsored. How do you unwind? Share your thoughts with me. Please give this blog a like!

Colour Pop Ulta-Matte Lip Review

Hello lifestylers,

I know it has been a while, but I have been extremely busy with school. Nonetheless, some of you may already know I am lipstick junkie.  I recently receive several lip products which I have not been able to review until now. The past few weeks I have been obsessed with Colour Pop Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks. Let’s get on with the show!

Product Information

Colour Pop claims their formula is lightweight making it easy to glide onto the lips. Leaving a super intense color with a bold ultra-matte finish. They also claim to be long wearing and kiss proof formula.

Application Tips

Before applying the product, lips should be bare and dry. It is recommended to exfoliate for a smooth finish.  Outline the lips with a matching lipliner before applying the liquid lipstick. Colour pop recommend storing the lipsticks upright shake well before using.

Ultra-Matte Shades

The Foxy mini collection comes in five shades.

1     Beeper is a warm mid-tone taupe shade. It is a great the daytime color.

2    Clueless is a dusty mauve pink shade. Also, another color that can be used during the day.

3     Tulle is a dusty mauve, burgundy shade. I absolutely love this color it is one of my favorite.

4     Creeper is a real classic blue, red shade. Another great color that I love makes a great evening look.

5     More Better is a deep violet wine shade. This color is perfect for fall and also absolutely one of my favorite as well.

My Thoughts

I picked up the Mini set for a couple of reasons. First I wanted to invest in several colors as oppose to one full-size lipstick. Second, I noticed that’s for $18.00 I would get five different shades which in my opinion is a good deal.  In my opinion, this liquid ultra-matte lipstick is a long-lasting formula. The colors are beautiful and can be used for a day or night time look. After using these liquid lipsticks consecutively on hot weather days, it did dry my lips.  My suggestion is to apply a moisturizing lip balm before the liquid lipstick this should help minimize drying your lips. I do see myself purchasing the full-size bottles of each color shortly. Do I recommend this product? I sure do! They extremely affordable are long lasting.

Until next time Lifestylers xoxo!

Beauty Time

In a previous post “I am Still a Woman”, I stated that our inner beauty is important. However, I also believe in getting pampered and feeling pretty for yourself and not for others. We are all aware that people judge a book by its cover, and I know this by experience. Let’s face it, when people see us (wheelchair user), the first thing they notice is our wheelchair. If they are mature enough to see beyond the wheelchair, then perhaps our beauty will be notice. Just because I cannot walk does not mean I cannot feel pretty.

As a teenager, I had a personal hairdresser come to my apartment once a month. Having my hairdresser come to my home, was an excellent idea. It made things easier for the three of us (my caregiver, my hairdresser, and myself). I did not have to struggle to get out of my wheelchair to get my hair wash. After, a couple of years my hairdresser moved away. I had my share of inpatient hairdressers. Nonetheless, some excellent workers do not mind accommodating their clients. I currently have a great person who does my hair, and she is very patient. If you are some who requires accommodations communication is essential. As a consumer, you may be necessary to bring specialized equipment you may use at home to wash your hair. My wheelchair tilts which is helpful when I get my brows done.

Don’t be discourage if you cannot find a salon where you feel comfortable. It is a work in the process do not settle for less. Sooner or later you will come across caring professional people. What I want you to know is that we can and are beautiful women no matter what. Do not allow your disability to get in the way of maintaining your hair, your face, and body. Go out there and get pampered! It is time focus on yourself!
