May Favorites

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

Sorry for the late post!! Here is the product list with everything I mentioned in my latest May Likes & Dislikes video. Since this month most of the products I mentioned were "likes" I just titled this post "favorites" instead.

The earrings I wore were from my jewelry line Pinkbox Jewerly

These earrings are hand woven on a teardrop loop with Swarovski Crystals. You can purchase them here:

Next, my ultimate favorite of the month are these Phosphor Appear Watches  

I wanted to thank Ariel the author of this AMAZING watch blog for hosting this giveaway.

The Description for these watches as below:

Phosphor reveals the new Appear watch line, skillfully blending design and technology to craft the ultimate fashion timepiece.

Driven by Micro-Magnetic Mechanical Digital (M3D) technology, the Phosphor Appear watch utilizes miniature-sized rotors adorned with Swarovski™ crystals that revolve to reveal numerical or chronological information. With each minute, an electrical pulse generates an electromagnetic field that changes the position of the crystals on the face of the watch, to elegantly display the passing time, while producing a distinctive sound unique to the Phosphor Appear digital watch line.

The basic "time" mode features a 12-hour display, with the hours positioned above the minutes on the face. The watch face also offers a "seconds" mode and "off" mode, showing an entire face of crystals with no time display.

  • Case diameter: 43.8mm
  • Overall case thickness: 14.5mm
  • Water resistance: 5 ATM - 50m
  • Display: 12 hour only
  • Functions: Time, Seconds, and Off

The description of the watch can also be found on the Phosphor website.

One of my subscriber Anna she is a Mary Kay representative and she sent me a few items for review.  Please visit her Mary Kay site here

This is my first time trying Mary Kay products, and a lot of you wanted me to review products from affordable online retailers such as Avon and Mary Kay so here it is!

My favorite products from her package include:

 Products that did not work out for me

Now on to the Naruko products!! I know you guys are dying to try Naruko and YOU SHOULD!!! I finished these 2 serums and that is why I mentioned it in this video, because I can give a more conclusive review after I finish a product.

I finished this Magnolia Brightening Serum and it was amazing!
This serum instantly brightens and tightens the skin for more youthful and rested looking skin. The scent is a little strong but I love Magnolia so it was no bother for me at all. Texture is light and moisturizes well.

Naruko Lavender and Marjorum Brightening Serum
This serum was a little hard for me to finish because I didn't like it as much as the Magnolia one. The glass dropper can get messy and not as convenient as the pump on the Magnolia one. I wish they made all serums pump so it doesn't get messy! Although it says it has brightening properties, I did not notice any at all. Overall, it is a great basic serum with lavender scent.

My favorite serum from Naruko has to be the Rose & White fungus aqua cubic serum

It smells heavenly and is a super good serum for all skin types. I highly recommend this serum to anyone who is just starting Naruko and doesn't know what to get!

I also started using the Kiehls powerful line reducing concentrate

Kiehl's describes this as " The line eraser with 10.5% Vitamin C. As potent as Retinol without the sensitivity."

Indeed it is powerful because I feel like tingle and slightly burning feeling every time I use it. It is a velvet texture and absorbs quickly. 

A lot you ask me what BB I use and my HG BB cream is L'EGERE White Multi Blemish Balm BB Cream

This BB cream is a medium coverage cream. It does tend to get a bit shinny throughout the day, but the finish is so natural I really don't mind. The only down side is no SPF protection, so wear a sunscreen under this! 

Finally, my last favorite is this L'oreal Lash serum which you can purchase from your local drugstore. I was really skeptical about this serum because I have used many lash serums before. I have even used Latisse and it worked really well on me. Again, I would like to emphasize that this serum is really for conditioning your lashes and will work differently than prescription Latisse.

I hope you enjoyed this SUPER DETAILED post!! 

Leave me a comment below if you have tried any of these products or if you have any thoughts or concerns about any of them!
