To use the words of Mally Beauty creator Mally Roncal, your lips will look gorgois!!!
H3 stands for hydration, hydration, hydration! And yes, these lovely glosses offer a lot of hydration, which is perfect for lips that might be dried from colder Winter and Fall temperatures.
Mally Roncal is one of my favorite beauty industry people. I follow her on Snapchat and she is someone I seriously wish was my real life friend Mally is one of my favorites to follow on Snapchat and I truly enjoy her makeup products. There are six shades of the Mally Beauty H3 Lip Gloss and today I have three to show you: Pink Daisy, Orchid Berry, and Shimmering Nude.
Pink Daisy is a lovely shimmer-free light pink.
Orchid Berry is a medium berry pink, that’s also sans shimmer.
Shimmering Nude offers tons of multi-dimensional neutral shimmer.
The packaging is adorable. I love this clear lucite top on the glosses, which is unique to Mally Beauty.
These glosses are lightweight and can be worn alone as well as on top of other lip colors. They’re formulated with antioxidants to nourish your lips while looking their best.
My Final Thoughts: From packaging to product, my lips are loving Mally Beauty H3 Lip Gloss. As a gloss loving kind of gal, what stands out for me with the Mally Beauty H3 Lip Gloss is the smooth texture and gads of shine. They’re definitely worth checking out!
When Borghese collaborated with artist Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic on limited edition packaging for the Borghese Fango collection, something simply wonderful happened. The proof? You have to take a look at the results.
There’s just something special about serving some art with your beauty treatments.
From the outer packaging to the product, Borghese’s collaboration with Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic is an entirely artful production.
Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic is a contemporary artist whose work has appeared in New York’s Museum of Modern Art and Art Basel in Miami. He has also collaborated with CFDA, Kenzo, Givenchy and Public School. To create this one-of-a-kind artwork for Fango, Mestrovic took inspiration from Japanese calligraphy to combine gesture and movement and create something that’s modern, abstract, and beautiful.
This mineral-rich mud mask that’s infused with Sweet Almond and Avocado Oils can be used on your face and body. The mud purifies and cleanses your skin and you will seriously see the difference. Fango is not only fun to say, it also works really well to keep your skin looking its best.
Borghese Fango Delicato is formulated to purify skin gently and contains Aloe Vera, Oat Protein, Mango Butter, Olive Fruit and Chamomile Extracts. This mask is so great for those of us with skin a little more on the sensitive side. You can use this mask on your face and body two to three times a week.
My Final Thoughts: I’m all about products that work well, regardless of packaging. However, why not serve some art with your beauty treatments with display worthy containers? After I’m finished with my Borghese Fango and Fango Delicato masks, the gorgeous glass containers are definitely going to be utilized around the house.
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope all of you are enjoying this day and it’s a day of rest and enjoyment. I was thinking about some beauty MVP’s in my makeup collection and boiled all my favorites down to a list of 5 beauty products I’m thankful for in 2015.
These products have pulled through again and again and proved that they are truly awesome and worthy of holy grail status.
I have recommended this $2 top coat to so many people and am constantly stocking up on fresh bottles because it’s literally the best top coat of all time ever. All time ever! Ever! Not only does it dry in a minute or so, the glossy effect remains for days.
What beauty products are you thankful for this year? I’d love to know!
I’m currently working on a Holiday shopping gift guide, and in the meanwhile I’m taking the time to highlight the products on said guide individually. I have to say this Smashbox set is not only a great value, it’s one of my favorites.
At $29, the Smashbox Art.Love.Color Studio Set is an excellent value and you must snap it up! Why? Full sizes! Awesome products!
Compactly and cleverly contained in an artfully designed plastic tube that you can use to store your makeup brushes, this set contains 5 Smashbox full and luxury sample-sized products that are valued at $79. The mascara and lipstick are full sizes, which is enough to make me entirely impressed with the set. The contents of this set are:
Full Exposure Mascara – a favorite that will keep your lashes looking lush.
Be Legendary Lipstick in Primrose (mauve pink)
Be Legendary Lip Gloss in Disco Rose (rich rose)
Photo Op Eye Shadow Trio in Spectral
Photo Op Eye Shadow Trio in Callback
The eyeshadows are highly pigmented and easy to blend. The Be Legendary Lipsticks are some of my favorite luxury lip colors, so the inclusion of the lipstick and lip gloss in such pretty colors makes them a must grab, in my opinion. Combined, the colors in this set make for lovely makeup looks!
My Final Thoughts: The Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Pop Studio Set is one of several similarly priced sets from Smashbox that are perfectly giftable for any makeup love on your list … yourself included!
Famous Footwear is helping me get my Holiday wardrobe going, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the shoes I’ve recently added to my collection.
Now, I need to tell you about these boots. Yes, these boots are fabulous! But first, a little bit of back story.
Over the last 3 years I’ve lost an amount of weight that is more than my 8 year old son’s current weight. I’m about 2/3 of the way towards my goal and not quite ready to reveal the exact amount, but needless to say, it’s a significant amount!
Because of the weight loss, I’ve found myself having to upgrade my entire wardrobe, which really isn’t a bad thing at all! I’m tossing clothes that don’t fit and letting go of pieces I really should have said “sayonara” to a long while ago. It’s not just my waistline that’s changed, my feet have gone down in size making it a really good reason to go shoe shopping!
And it’s the perfect season – I was looking for THE perfect boot I could wear in a variety of situations – not only while out and about, but also something I could wear at some upcoming Holiday parties that are on my agenda. That was fulfilled with the Life Stride X-Marvelous Boot in Tan.
With the Holiday season happening, I really wanted a pair of tan boots because they are incredibly versatile and can be used with a wide variety of outfits and circumstances. My standard Holiday season outfit is a black wrap dress and a pair of boots just makes it all come together. Accessorize it up with the perfect statement necklace, and I’m done! The Life Stride X-Marvelous boots are comfortable, stylish, and I’ve already received a ton of compliments on them. Plus, I love the attention to detail in this boot!
Famous Footwear has been one of my go-to shoe shops for quite some time. I love the quality and selection of name brands, and the prices are just right. Plus, I can always find size 10 shoes in the styles I love! While I was searching for boots, I was also looking for a great new pair of shoes for the gym.
I was looking for something cute that would help my jogging game. You’re supposed to change your running shoes every six months, and mine current pair are way past that date! I purchased the Nike Women’s Flex Experience RN 4 Prem Running Shoe in Grey/Sunset Glow in Tan, which are not only cute, but extremely comfortable and functional.
See, so cute?
I ended up purchasing the shoes online and have to say the experience was great. I made a small mistake and had to call customer service on a Saturday afternoon, which was fantastic and my problem was resolved quickly.
