The Halo Palette by Profusion



I recently purchased this small palette by Profusion. There are three different sets to choose from. One has more green tones, the other has more pink tones, and the final one (which is the one I bought) has blue tones.
I created a look using this small and very affordable palette, and I loved it!
I bought the Halo Palette at a retail store for around $1.50. I won't go into an extensive review, because I already reviewed it in the video.
For the most part, the colors are very pigmented and the packaging is so cute!
You can easily fit this in your purse in case you need to touch up your make up or are spending the night at a friend's house.

Duncan Hines Frosting Creations


When I saw these advertised on my television I just had to run out to the closest grocery store and get a couple of packets.
I bought the "Orange Creme" and "Strawberry Shortcake" flavors.
They were soooo yummy and only .99 cents!
They turned the frosting pastel colors and added delicious (and true to taste) flavors.
I made 14 cupcakes, and after only three days they were all gone. (:



























The coloring in some of the pictures I took is a little off, but try to ignore that.
I couldn't pick a favorite flavor. I can't wait to try more of these! There is such a wide variety!
My sister's birthday is coming up, so it looks like I have another reason to bake!
But do you ever really need a reason to bake?

                                          XoXo,

Sheer Cover Review

Yes, another Influenster review.
This one is the Sheer Cover Duo Concealer.
As the other products, I received this concealer free to test out.
I am always trying out new concealers, so I was thrilled to try this one out.
I never used Sheer Cover before, but my sister loves it and she loves this concealer.
I really love that there is a lighter shade and a darker shade. You can mix these or use them separately.  This is great for transitioning into the warmer months as well. The consistency is very creamy and covers blemishes and dark circles well.
This concealer is made to help nourish and restore the skin's natural moisture. It is also made to help calm and sooth sensitive and irritated skin.
Sheer Cover Duo Concealer is dermatologist tested..

Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions Review

This is another Influenster review. If you read my Twilight Woods Body Mist review, it explains Influenster and what a Voxbox is. It's a great service, so be sure to check them out!
I received the Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions to test out for free!
The purpose of this product, is to fit comfortably in Women's shoes and to prevent your feet from sliding (toe scrunch).
I've worn these cushions with sneakers, sandals, and flip flops. They worked wonders, and kept my feet from sliding in my sandals and flip flops. The massaging gel kept my feet comfortable after a long day at work!
The cushions can last up to six months, so you really get your money's worth.
Walk on air, with Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions!

Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist

Before I get into this AMAZING product, I just want to say that they changed blogger. :(
I was so confused when I logged on!
Anyway, I received this product in my Influenster Voxbox.
A Voxbox is a box you are chosen to receive based on badges you unlock at http://www.influenster.com.
The badges range from everything from dog lovers to bride to be. Influenster is 100% free!
After unlocking my badges, I was chosen to receive the May Spring Beauty Voxbox! I was very excited!
Today I am reviewing possibly my favorite product in the box.
The box was filled with many goodies, and this one is very impressive.
It is a full sized body mist from Bath & Body Works, in Twilight Woods.

Is there a girl out there that doesn't love Bath & Body Works products? I know I do, and this product didn't disappoint! The bottle is8 fl oz, and I got it for free! These mists cost $14.00. That is a fair price, because you are getting a lot of product. I wish I was good at describing scents, but I'm pretty bad at it. All I can tell you is that it smells amazing. The scent is stronger than your average body mist, but not quite as strong as a perfume. That's perfect for me. because I have really bad allergies. The fragrance last for hours, so you don't have to respray yourself over and over again. Overall this is an amazing product, and I will be buying more from this collection. I really want to get the body wash next!

Avon Nail Polishes

                                                          Avon Nailwear Pro
I love these nail polishes! They have beautiful shine, are long lasting, most colors on require one coat, and most importantly they are fast drying! I love fast drying nail polishes because I am very impatient. I always wind up messing up my nails and having to redo them. With these nail polishes I don't have that problem. 

My favorite color - Viva Pink. (I painted my dogs nails with this color. haha)





Real red is a pretty and classic color.








Decadence is a beautiful purple with a red shimmer.





A perfect color for Spring, I wore Sunshine on Easter.










All in all, Avon Nailwear Pro is a great line of nail polishes. I would give them five stars if I could!
I highly recommend everyone try  these polishes. They will not disappoint.

All Purpose Products

e.l.f Cosmetics makes some all purpose products. I bought two different ones at Target recently.  Each product only cost one dollar. (Which is already a plus!)


All Over Cover Stick in Pink Lemonade:

This cream stick can be used as an eyeshadow, blush, or lipstick. The color is a bit darker than I would think "Pink Lemonade" would look like. I would say it's more of a berry color. It's still very pretty non-the-less.
The color is perfect for eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick.
e.l.f is a great product and one, if not the most affordable cosmetic products.




Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal:

I absolutely love this  product. I like this manly for a bit of shimmer on my cheek bone, a highlight on my brow bone, and to create a pouty look for your lips. I do this by applying a small amount on the center of my lips.
This product is great for that fresh dewy look.




Overall, I am really impressed with these all purpose products.

Maybelline Dream Nude AirFoam


I already love the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation, so when I cam across the new Dream Nude   AirFoam foundation, I just had to try it.
The idea behind this product is a lightweight foam foundation for a flawless foundation. An ideal foundation for normal skin.

The packaging reminds me of what a spray on tanner comes in. 
The foundation is like a foam/mousse, which feels very lightweight. 
The coverage is light to medium, so if you  are looking for a fuller coverage, you might be better off purchasing the Dream Matte Mousse instead.
I love the look and feel of this foundation. There's SPF 16 to protect your skin, and it blends very well for a very natural finish.

Montagne Jeunesse

You've seen this product around even if you think you haven't. You may have even tried it.
The name is a mouthful, but the product is great!



The price is about a $1.99, and can be found in stores such as drugstores or Kmart. I started using these about four or five years ago. My face always feels much smoother after I use these. I'll link their site below, because there are a lot of different products to try out. I always wanted to try one of the hair products out,  but never did. If you have tried one of the hair products, let me know what you thought of it in a comment!
I must have no shame for showing you the following pictures...gulp... Well, here's proof I use these.

I really love this product.
It's very affordable and can be easily found.
The blush is very blend-able and comes in many great shades.
It applies evenly to the skin, and is natural looking as well.
I found myself needing to reapply it after a few hours, but other than that I have no complaints.
