Nair Hair Remover Microwaveable Body Wax Kit

So I tried this big bowl of wax 2 different times in the hopes that I'd like it. No dice. Once the tub is heated up, the wax is beyond messy. Lifting the stick up from the tub left strings of dried wax on the floor. I really like the concept that you don't need strips but when I peeled it back about 2 hairs came off. I followed directions and everything. Not to mention the pain. Holy cow does removing the wax hurt.

RAMY Beauty Therapy Innocent Beauty Cream Quad

Here's a pot of 4 colors that you can use on your lips, cheeks and eyes. I heart the flattering and soft shades in the Innocent Beauty pot. These are creamy shadows. They looks great on your eyes if you want that little extra something. I wasn't a fan of it on my cheeks or lips because of the iridescence. It's too sparkly anywhere else but the eyes for me.

Redken Body Full Shampoo and Conditioner

I wrote about both the shampoo and conditioner back in August 2008. I loved it then and I love it now. I'm thinking that Redken has just about the most fabulous line of haircare products for the thin haired ladies out there. 2 days ago someone commented on my hair and how nice it was looking. Love it!

Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara

Click Here

This mascara is fabu! It has 3D coating technology which plumps and stretches each lash. It doesn't smudge or flake. My lashes don't droop when I wear this and it has real staying power. As a die hard fan of waterproof mascara, it often takes me about 10 minutes to take my mascara off at the end of the night. Not this mascara. It comes off so easily.

The website is pretty cool too.

A little something called...
