My eye teared up leaving a cool negative space effect on my liquid liner!
I might have teared up because of a song I was listening to, and the fact that my ring light bit the dust! Not the lamp itself, but the bulb. A bulb was reordered and arrived and I’ll install it today.
I found the lashes at a couple of different Target stores in my area and knew right away that I had to try the Grand Glamor set.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to fabulous lashes.
These are seriously intense lashes and I have to admit it was a bit challenging to handle and maneuver these falsies on my lashes. There was definitely some false lash application pep talking going on!
Because of the ways my eyes are set, I need and appreciate a dramatic set of falsies, but these take dramatic to the whole next level! They’re definitely intense.
Don’t get me wrong – these give a fantastic result, but just a warning that they’re a lot of false lashes. Glitzy Glam lashes feature two layers of stacked lashes for the ultimate false lash experience. They come with a tube of false lash glue that is one of the best false lash glues I’ve ever used.
The end result? Total glam. Infinite glam. Here’s a side view of Grand Glamor.
My Final Thoughts: The Vegas Nay Lashes by Eylure in Grand Glamor are an intense pair of false lashes that give your eyes a dramatic result. If you’re a novice falsies user, you might not be very comfortable applying them.
Yesterday I showed you the Black Radiance Deeper The Berry palette, which is the exact same type of eyeshadow that’s in the Wet n Wild ColorIcon palettes. Exactly! It’s a beautiful set of purples and taupes and I forsee lots of pretty eye combinations in the near future.

So, there I was, strolling along the makeup aisle of Walgreen when I noticed something important: A brand new eyeshadow palette in the Wet n Wild 8-pan ColorIcon Palette display!
There are no words to explain my excitement for coming across this palette that even has a “New” sticker on the front. I thought I had come across an exclusive palette that would set the blogging world on FIRE because no one else has reviewed this pretty set of taupe and purple tones.
At least that I know of. Of course I purchased the palette, which came up at $7.99. Strange, but I asked the clerk to check for me, and it was agreed that it should have been the usual price of around $5 for a Wet n Wild 8 pan palette. Imagine my surprise when I get this palette home and look at the back to discover something shocking: this is actually a Black Radiance 8-pan eyeshadow palette!!!!
So, why does Black Radiance Eye Appeal Shadow Collection in Deeper The Berry look just like another Wet n Wild palette? It’s because both brands are owned by Markwins. The only difference is the variety of colors and the Black Radiance products are priced about $2 more than the same 8-pan palettes from Wet n Wild (whoops, sorry Walgreens!). Otherwise the pigmentation and quality are exactly the same. Exactly! In comparison, here’s a look at the Wet n Wild Poster Child 8-pan palette.
Well, all I really know is that I’ll sure have some fun creating looks with my new “Wet n Wild” palette.
My Final Thoughts: While the price tag is a little bit higher, consider Black Radiance Black Radiance Eye Appeal Shadow Collection 8-pan palettes to be an extension of the highly beloved Wet n Wild eyeshadow palettes. This is a whole new world of eyeshadow goodness to explore!
The perfect deep purple smoky eyeshadow can be found in Makeup Geek Drama Queen. This is actually a lovely, lovely color and proof that Makeup Geek’s shadows are a terrific value. It’s smooth, blendable, and full of pigmentation.
It’s that sandal season time of the year again, which means it’s time to get serious about having presentable feet! It’s easy to get your act together with my 3 must have products for Summer smooth feet. They will make a big difference in your feet!
For smooth soles, seek these three feet savers on a regular basis. I promise you’ll love the results!
Alessandro Pedix Feet One Minute Pedicure ($25) is a great way to get started on your foot care regimen. It’s an oil-based exfoliating foot scrub that not only rids your feet of dry skin with sea salt, but adds a dose of moisture with sunflower oil, peach kernel oil, shea butter, jojoba seed oil and olive oil. If you’re a fan of at-home pedicures (and even if you’re not), this is a fantastic way to treat your feet in 60 seconds.
For serious and intense callus situations, you’ll love Simon & Tom Callus Removing Gel ($14.90). This stuff is serious business! It’s similar to callus removers you’ll find at nail salons, so it should be used with caution and at the most once a week. Leave the gel on your feet for a couple of minutes, then slough away dead skin with a pumice stone. Your feet will be baby smooth, guaranteed!
If you have severely callused feet, it might take a couple of applications for your feet to be completely renewed.
To keep your newly refreshed feet looking their best, using an intense moisturizer is a must! Paying attention to keeping my feet moisturized every day was what made a big difference in my personal foot care routine. Every night I apply either Aquaphor or MoistureWORX Heel & Elbow Intensive ($37) and cover my feet with a pair of socks to let the moisturizer lock in and repair my feet. MoistureWorx works especially well on dry elbows, as well.
Dubbed a “facelift for your feet”, MoistureWORKS Heel & Elbow Intensive contains ingredients that repair and nourish your skin, including 20% Urea, Olive Oil, Shea Butter, and Panthenol.
Paying attention to your feet pays off, and this is especially true during warm weather months when we all want to wear flip flops and sandals. Follow this prescription and your feet will look good all season.
What are some of your favorite foot care products?
It was supposed to be on of those quick trips to Walmart when I came upon a display of the new Rimmel Keep Calm Lip Balm .
You know how those kinds of shopping trips go: you go in with a plan to get one or two essential items and end up walking out with everything you didn’t know you really needed. In this case, I walked out with one of the cutest lip balms I’ve ever seen that happens to have a typo on the packaging.
