Influenster Review: Victoria's Secret Sport - The Angel


I recently received a Victoria’s Secret Sport sports bra for free from Influenster for reviewing purposes. I have to admit I was pretty stoked to see VS had come out with a new sports bra line. There are patterns and colors galore that can suit anyone’s style, and there are different types suitable to different workouts/lifestyles.

Deborah Lippmann: Glitter In the Air

Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air
I recently hit the Deborah Lippmann jackpot and scored a few bottles for about $6.50 a piece during the BeautyBrands.com Sale. Among the many, that I will be reviewing slowly but surely, is Glitter in the Air. At first I have to be honest, I was on the fence about this polish because it has been reported as being sheer and several people have told me that they didn't think it was worth it especially since Revlon had duped it with Whimsical. However, I still wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt and give it a try, I have never been let down by Deborah Lippmann, so I took my chances.

Influenster: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Review

Hi everybody! Today, I will be reviewing 3 colors from the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nail polish line, Jaded (540), Red my Lips (470), and Pat on the Black (510). I have yet to try this line from Sally Hansen, so I was very excited when I received it in the mail. I received these polishes free for review from Influenster.

Tarte Wanderlust Special Edition LipSurgence 5-pc Lip Set Review

Not a year can go by without me reviewing some kind of Tarte LipSurgence product. “My name is Helen, and I have Tarte LipSurgence Problem”. You can check out my previous blog posts about these beauties, but to sum it up, I love them!
Tarte Wanderlust Special Edition LipSurgence: L-R: Dashing (Lip Luster), Heartfelt (Lip Creme), Miracle (Lip Creme), Festive (Lip Tint), and Kind (Lip Luster)
I must say in November I was a little disappointed that Tarte had not put out another set of 5 full size LipSurgence, and instead opted to make a mini’s set. I look forward to the holiday set every year, and I still kick myself for missing out on the first 5 piece set they did. Well, needless to say I did not get the minis set, because I enjoy my full size lippies and the minis just didn’t do anything for me. Fast forward to a few weeks before Christmas, I was browsing the QVC website doing some Christmas shopping and decided to check out their Tarte products and there she was!! That ever elusive Wanderlust Special Edition set of 5 full size LipSurgence, that had been hiding from me all winter season long. Needless to say, without even giving it a second thought I tossed that bad boy in the basket and checked out!! Now that you have that back story, let’s get into the review and swatches!

Color Club Mini Nail Polish in #6032 For You

Color Club Nail Lacquer in #6032 For You
Happy New Year 2014 !! I hope you all are looking forward to the New Year as much as I am!! Onward we go!!
Color Club Nail Lacquer in #6032 For You
Nothing like starting off a New Year of Blogging with a fresh Mani! Today we will be looking at a new (at least for me) Color Club Mini in #6032 ‘For You’. I picked up this adorable mini polish at Harmon’s where they had a decently sized display of all mini color club polishes, including minis of their newer collection ‘Girl About Town’ (Fall 2013), which I was surprised to see. From this display I also picked up a mini of ‘The Uptown’ from the Fall Collection, which I will review soon. In the meantime, you can see swatches on my Instagram (helensbeauty). The ‘For You’ polish happened to catch my eye because I thought it was pretty unique looking, and it reminded me of an indie brand polish.
