Packaging
All of the kits come in a decorated box with a clear outside sleeve that slips on. The sleeves are also decorated. When you open the box the products are in a black plastic tray. The lip gloss come in a square clear plastic tube. They have a black doe foot wand cap. The caps have a brick emboss. They have the company name on the side and the colors on a sticker on the bottom. The mascaras come in a round tube with a mascara wand cap. The cap is black with brick emboss. The tubes are blue, pink and yellow. They have the company name on the side and the colors on the bottom on a sticker. The nail polish bottles are clear glass. They come with a black lid with nail polish brush. The lids also have a brick emboss on them. They have the company name on the bottles with the color names on the bottom on a sticker. The glitter pots come in a tall square jar with a round lid. They are clear plastic. The company name is on the front and the glitter name and info on a sticker on the back.

Scent and formula
The lip gloss smells faintly of a light almost fruity vanilla. It disappears on your lips. It’s a creamy smooth formula and not sticky at all. The glitter is fine, you can feel it but it’s not gritty feeling. The mascara smells and feels like standard mascara. The nail polish smells, looks, feels and tastes like nail polish. xd

So if you love One Direction you’ll love these Makeup by One Direction sets by Markwins! The lip glosses are really nice. They are creamy and non-sticky. The glitter is very fine and doesn’t feel gritty. The colors are lovely and bright. My favorite is Taken. The mascaras are cool. The blue and pink show up fairly well but the yellow is hard to use on the hair. They all show up really well on the lashes though. They are vibrant colors and look really cool. The nail polish is pretty decent. The blue and pink are super bright and are cream jellies. It takes 3-4 coats to make them opaque. If you know me you my disdain for bar glitter. The holo polish is… pretty but it’s bar glitter and I can’t stand to wear it. The glitters themselves are pretty. The blue and pink are lighter versions of their polish friends. To be honest they aren’t that glittery. I used them several ways on my nails and my favorite way to use them was in a glitter sandwich. I think they looked best that way. Now the holo glitter Star is my favorite. It’s gorgeous. It’s colorful and sparkly and shiny and Oooo. These sets came out in November of 2014 and are available in the following stores Macy’s, Dillards, Boscov’s, Stage, Stores, Beauty Brands, Lord & Taylor. They are also available online at Amazon and Dillard’s. =d I hope you like my little model! Fumiko had been wanting to try the mascara and it was easier to take pictures of it on her! She has the pink mascara on her lashes and in her bangs, the blue mascara in her brows and hair and the yellow in her hair. She thought she looked so cool. =]

Kiss InstaWave

Review: Kiss InstaWave Automatic Curler

press sample

Official description
It’s quick and easy to get salon-quality curls with the revolutionary new InstaWave by KISS. Just push the button to style any type of hair effortlessly.

  • Fully automatic, tangle-free curler
  • Innovative design lets you curl from any position using either hand
  • Curl Dial makes it simple to switch between left and right curl directions
  • Ceramic Ionic Technology protects hair for healthy, shiny results
  • Two heat settings with maximum temperature of 420° F
  • Auto shutoff after 90 minutes for added safety
  • Patent Pending

Where to buy
From Target – for $59.99 USD.
From Ulta – for $59.99 USD.

Directions
1. Hold InstaWave up-right and place 1 to 2 inches of hair onto curler.
Instawave

2. Press button to instantly catch hair and rotate curl barrel. Hold button until hair is fully around barrel, then release.
Instawave

3. Allow barrel to heat hair for 3 to 10 seconds (time depends on style of curl and hair type).
Instawave

4. Pull InstaWave gently downward to release a beautiful curl.

Packaging
It comes in a box with a booklet of instructions.

The Kiss InstaWave is motorized and wraps your hair around the barrel. You can either wrap it left or right. It curls pretty well. I’ve found it works better on longer hair. It does make a low humming sound, but it’s not very loud. The first few times you use it it does have an odd smell, but it doesn’t linger on your hair. This was super easy to use, I think my only complaint that it doesn’t hold the hair as tight on shorter hair, so you don’t get tight curls, other than that it’s great. =]

Pros

Final thoughts
It's a good curling iron and easy to use.

I would probably buy it.

The belovedly awesome pretty camera!

I have a camera now!

Thank to Mieke and her friend Fionn! It came to me all the way from Singapore. It’s a Canon 450D. Fionn even sent both lenses with it and some other stuff for it. It looks awesome and takes great photos. I am very, very happy with it and I appreciate it so much. =d Thank you so much Fionn! It actually arrived last week, but the wrong charger was sent so I found a cheap one on ebay and my mom got it for me since she has stuff she wants me to photograph and the charger got here yesterday! So now I can get caught up on swatches attempt to wear makeup every now and then. xd

sodium Sodium 406mg

Low carbs Total Carbohydrate 1g

Serving size 31g Calories from fat 98kcal Fiber 0g Protein 1g Sugar 0g

Ingredients

  • teaspoon ginger root, chopped
  • ¼-½ cup celery, chopped
  • ¼-½ cup onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup carrot, chopped
  • ½ cup tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 cup peanut oil or sesame oil
  • ½ cup rice vinegar

Directions

  1. Just add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

Tips

  • I use ½ cup celery and onion if I’m using unrefined sesame oil. For some reason it needs it. I use ¼ with the peanut oil. I also use tamari sauce instead of soy sauce, because it’s less salty and tastes better. It separates, as you can see in the photo, so make sure you shake it before using.

I love this dressing. There’s a little sushi place in Michigan that makes my most favourite sushi roll ever, they also have the most amazing ginger dressing! Last time I was there they gave me the list of ingredients that were in it, so I played with the quantities until it tasted the same. So hopefully you enjoy it as well!

Review & Giveaway for Hello Cutie Mud Mask

Review & Giveaway: Hello Cutie Mud Mask

press sample

Official description
Your Search For The Perfect Mud Is Finally Over!!

These selected ingredients combine nature, science and beauty in one simple to use product. Hello Cutie Mud Mask
was created in a FDA regulated facility to ensure the highest quality control. Pop open the jar and observe
the refreshing minty aroma. Peppermint and eucalyptus assist in the deeper layers of the skin to extract those
unwanted blackheads, whiteheads and toxins.

What Separates Us From Our Competition? Unlike Most Mud Mask We Use Hyaluronic Acid.

This helps the elasticity in the skin and increases moisture due to aging. Researchers Sato T,Sakamato O, Odanaka W, Yoshida
K, and Urishibata,O found Hyaluronic Acid supplementation to be directly correlated to measured increases in skin moisture.
Microscopic skin surface analysis shows increased skin smoothness, and amelioration of wrinkles.

Unlike other brands we use Vitamin B3( Niacinamide) Dr.OZ stated on his show aired 1/10/14 that Vitamin B3 is “botox in a bottle”
and that “Vitamin B3 is an anti-inflammatory, repair skin, skin cells and improve blood flow that helps with fine line and
wrinkles. If you are not in love with your Hello Cutie Mud Mask within 60 days of purchase return it full or empty and we’ll
return your investment..no questions asked. So with confidence order now and when you do consider getting two..one for you and one
for that special person.

Where to buy
From Amazon – You get a 2 ounce jar for $69.99 USD. It’s currently on sale for $34.99 USD.

Directions
Take the applicator brush and dip it into the mask and observe its creamy texture.Apply thin strokes and enjoy the relaxing
effect on your face as it goes to work. You will experience a slight tingling while it works then the antioxidants,vitamins and
hyaluronic acid goes in and plumps, firms and tightens leaving your skin glowing.

Packaging
It comes in a clear, frosted plastic jar with a silver lid. There is a plastic seal inside when you open it. The label is yellow, white and gray with black details. It has the product and company information.

Scent and formula
It smells of eucalyptus and mint with a barely there tinge of mud. It’s a thickish mud that covers well. It’s charcoal gray in color, though it looks slightly green on your face.

Ingredients
Aloe barbadensis leaf, purified water, kaolin, glycerin, iron oxide, magnesium aluminum silicate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, xanthan gum, mandelic acid, panthenol, butylene glycol, cmelia oleifera (green tea) leaf extract, sodium pyruvate, punica granatum (pomegranate) extract, eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, chamomile recutita (matricaria) flower extract, glycyrrhiza uralensis (licorice) root extract, helianthus annuss (sunflower) seed oil, calendula officinalis flower extract, hyaluronic acid, cucumis sativus (cucumber) fruit extract, charcoal powder, symphytum officinale (comfrey) leaf extract, tocopheryl acetate, mentha piperita (peppermint) leaf oil, ascorbyl palmitate, dmae bitartrate, niacinamide.

The Hello Cutie Mud mask is pretty awesome. I have used other mud masks in the past but none really compare to it. The scent is amazing, it smells of eucalyptus and mint. The ingredients are pretty awesome and I was pleased to read them. There are a lot of skin loving ingredients, some which I don’t see often in products like comfrey leaf! I was truly surprised to see it. Unlike other mud masks this mask does not dry my skin out, which honestly surprised me. It left my skin plump and moist, no dryness at all. My skin seemed brighter and less red after I rinsed it off and it just felt good. It feels a little tingly and very cooling when it’s on, which feels really amazing. I have been using it a couple of times a week since I got it a few weeks ago and the jar is still pretty much full. It’s a semi-thick consistency that covers really well with just a small amount. I apply it with the bore fan brush I received with it and leave it on until it’s dry which takes anywhere from 10-20 minutes depending on the state of my face. haha On days where my skin gets oily it takes a little longer to dry. Then I just rinse it off with slightly room temperature water. Normally after a mud mask I have to wash my face and then do my skincare routine, but with this rinsing is enough! I have noticed also that after use my pores appear much smaller than usual which is pretty awesome. This is a high quality mud mask that works extremely well! I believe they are still offering a free bore fan brush with purchase right now!

Glam Essentials Offer Peace Of Mind with their Empty Jar Guarantee. No Catches: Use entire jar and if your skin does not feel tighter, firmer, clearer return it for 100% of your Money Back.
