Keep your house smelling yummy....

So I got an e-mail today from bath & body works and it made me wonder...."what do other peple use to keep their homes smelling fresh and clean?" I know personally I LOVE when I walk into a home and it smells refreashing. I really LOVE it when someone walks into my house and the first words out of their mouths is "Mmm it smells so good in here". So...I'll let you know my little secret I use BBW candles & wall flowers. My personal scent of choice in candle is mango cilantro...I know thats dosen't sound to appealing but, it will have my entire smelling so good in about 30mins. Mind you I only burn candles in the living room or kitchen i have this fear with candles and bedrooms. My go to scent in a wall flower has to be island escape it's just so tropical I love it.

In my email to day it mentions that if you spend $30 you can buy the 2011 summer VIP bag for $20.00 which is a $75.00 Value. WHAT A STEAL!!! I'm pretty sure I can find something I need plus I also get $10 off a $30 purchase this weekend only so yea i'm pretty much going to put my order in...haha

It's been forever.....

Ok first let me start off by saying it's been forever & a day since I've blogged. I'm really going to try & keep up I mean atleast once a month or something.
Bajajajaja (my mexican laugh)

So honestly, I was so scared to try Kim K's new perfume. I know I'm a little late on this but, I heard so much about it on twitter & some people loved it & some hated it then some gave it another chance. If it stunk, I would have been devastated. But after testing it out, I LOVED it!!! It smelt fresh to me, perfect for spring. The only thing is it really doesn't last long on me & I'd hate to spray the whole bottle so that when i walk in some where people get an overdose of Kim K. That would be horrible so instead I also bought the rollerball for my purse.

I have NEVER found it easy to find products for my oily face. Gosh it works my last never to see someone shinning so bright from there face due to oily skin. I mean come on dab some blot poweder on your self girlfriend. Bajajaja, blot poweder is my best friend. So I once had a wise girl tell me "you need to use a primer it will absorb your oils". Well, I often change primers looking for the perfect one & I think I finally found love a priemer made especially for oily girls like us by Cover FX, called Clear Prep FX. Clear Prep is a mattifying primer that helps to absorb oil. It also contains acne fighting ingredients, antiaging ingredients and line fillers. So you can beat the oilies, and acne without totally stripping your skin. I have been using this for about a week my makeup glides right on no pull or smudging. I definitely had longer makeup wear and less oil when using this. My face cleared up in my trouble spots like magic at first when you apply it it feels sort of oily but, once it sets you see the matte effect.     

So because of Melformakeup I had to get my paws on this & I love it, it's ahhmazing!!!
Purity cleans and soothes without my skin feeling tight & dry. In other words my face feels like a baby's butt....bajajaja I think Roman has been using it when I'm not looking.

Lip Butter didn't disappoint... natural ingredients like shea butter and rice wax have been keeping my lips moisturized and feeling good. It melts on your lips like real buttahh. I try and avoid lip products that live in a pot. I simply can’t deal with the “messy on my finger” thing that happens. Then, there’s this need to wipe your finger somewhere gross.

Double wear foundation by Estee Lauder

So in my last blog I mentioned that I had a sample of the Double Wear foundation from Estee Lauder. Now let me just start off by saying this is only my opinion & we may not share the same thoughts on this product.....

I had one major problem with this makeup the shade did not match my skin tone it was in soft tan. My skin had a dusky look to it some places it looked darker/heavier than other places. I did use a MAC 187 brush to apply & maybe I should have used the MAC 190 brush instead. I'm not giving up just yet.....I hear the "Light" series from the same brand is better. So I will be returning to the counter to ask for the shade lighter than she gave me & also try the "light" series. I can say this.....I loved that it lasted all 12hrs of my shift at work. I didn't have to touch up at all. At the end of my shift my face looked as if I had just applied the foundation. I currently use MAC Studio fix fluid foundation in NC40.

So, let me know what your thoughts are on this foundation? Did you like it? How does the shade compare to what you used before? How did you apply it?

Till next time dolls......
