I'm back with another accessory review from Affordable Styles, so they were kind enough to have me choose a pair of sunglasses for consideration to review, and of course I have done reviews before for Affordable sunglasses so I pretty much know what I'm getting, these are my second pair and I'm pleased with them as well. I have a good amount of expensive designer glasses & sunglasses so I'm not ever expecting much when I purchase inexpensive sunglasses but with Affordable Style I have been pleased so far. They are pink which is my fave color, they are sturdy, and well made, these did not sit on my nose properly at first but with a bit of adjustment they were fine. They are comfortable and for the price you can't go wrong.They retail at $15.26 on sale right now. These are the SW Rhinestone Style #8270. I will have links below to their site and other fun links for you guys to check out, of course you are not obligated to buy anything but if you follow my blog (click on the networked blogs box to your right) you will have a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Affordable Styles and use it on anything you want on their site, but its open to U.S ONLY these are their guidelines not mine, they will be sending you the gift certificate directly. All their products are pretty affordable and they always have sales going on.
Hope you go and check them out!!

I received a Klout Perk (http://corp.klout.com/perks/disclosure)about a month ago and wanted to share my thoughts on the product, below will be links to Klout.com ( it's free to join ) and Neutrogena.
So this is an anti-aging product which I normally don't use because I feel sometimes they do the opposite but I decided to give it a go. First I love the packaging, I love that it's a drug store brand because then it's pretty affordable, the scent is great, it's a soft pearly consistency which I wasn't expecting. It has Retinol SA which reduced wrinkles & diminishes the appearance of age spots, Glucose Complex helps boost Retinol SA to quickly diminish the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, and also Hyaluronic Acid which helps moisturize, replenish & rejuvenate the look of skin. For more detailed information the link will be below.
I used it for 5-7 days so far although I have had it for about a month, I have noticed smoother skin, fading of light freckles which is fine with me, I don't have deep wrinkles so I can't speak on that but as I said I've noticed smoother skin, so I would say it helps with fine lines. My complexion is brighter and more awake looking. I use it under my moisturizer, my foundation or by itself. I've used it daytime and nighttime. I like neutragena as a brand so I will continue to use this product and purchase it again. My only complaint is that the product is called Rapid Wrinkle Repair which is a bit mis-leading because people may think that's all it does and feel they don't need it, when in fact it does much more than that, so like someone like me would not even look at the product based on the name, some people don't take the time out to read everything on the package if the name on the package is so specific, that's just my opinion. Otherwise I think it's a pretty good product and do recommend it. You can get this at your local drug stores that sell Neutrogena such as Walmart, Target, CVS, Rite Aid etc. The product retails at $20.99.
Hope all this helps you guys and that you will try it out. Check out the links below.
More Smashbox, YES!!! I love these lipsticks, believe it or not these are my first Smashbox lippies ever, I know that's crazy right, since I love me some Smashbox. So Smashbox was kind enough to send me these lippies a couple of months ago for consideration and I fell in love as I always do with Smashbox products. They are soft and moisturizing and keep your lips hydrated they feel like a super charged lip butter to me, long lasting, very pigmented and they just feel great on the lips. Love, Love, Love, I can't say enough about how great these lippies are. The colors are all gorgeous.
Below there are photos and swatches along with links as always of where you can get these lovely lippies. They retail for $19 each.
Hope you guys enjoy this post, any questions please put in the comments :)

Hello my lovelies
I bring to you some awesome eye shadows from Milani Cosmetics. These are the 2012 single powder eyeshadows. Miliani was kind enough to send me the eyeshadows for consideration. All the colors are gorgeous, and there are 12 shades to choose from and you have bright bold colors and natural, neutral colors to choose from along with different textures/finishes such as shimmer, matte, metalic, pearl and more. The shadows are smooth and easy to blend, great consistency and very opaque for the most part. I did find a couple of the shadows to be a bit sheer but 2 out of 12 is not bad especially since the ones I found to be a bit sheer are the highlight colors. Below you will see photos of the shadows and swatches along with a FOTD I did using a few of the shadows.
The shadows are great for the price of $5.99 and they are the size of a MUFE eyeshadow.
You should be able to find these at your local drug store that sells Milani Cosmetics such as Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid and others, if you can't find them in your area you can now order them online at www.milianicosmetics.com.
Hope your go out and try these awesome affordable shadows!!!
Today I'm going to let you guys know about a couple of my favorite powders from Smashbox. Baked Fusion of Lights are great versatile powders. I purchased these myself as most of you know I love me some Smashbox it's my favorite brand for a long time now. Baked Stardust is the one shaped in little triangles, it has a silky feel to it and goes on the skin lovely, It's a mixture of tans, beige and peach colors along with a pearl shade too, it gives your skin a beautiful glow, great to dust over highlight areas like your nose, cheek bones etc. with a slight shimmer it leaves your skin luminous, you can also use it over your eyes for a great shimmer look.
Dimension is the striped one with gorgeous coral and beige tones. This one also has a great silky feel, great for all skintones and amazing on the cheekbones, the shimmer gives you a great boost of radiance as smashbox says, and this one is also great on the eyes. You can swirl all the colors together or use them individually. I've had both of these for quite some time and have not put a dent on either one, so they will last you for a long time.
The Baked Stardust is still available but the Dimension is not available anymore but there are other shades of that particular powder. These powders retail for $30.00 each.
I have put links below along with photos of the products and swatches. Feel free to comment is you have used these yourself or if you plan on trying it out. Any question put in the comments as well.

Hola my lovelies
Here is a link to my video for this Review:
I've been wanting to do this review for a month now , Miliani PR was kind enough to send me these for consideration and I've been trying them out for about a month or so, I'm sure you guys have already seen these or have them but I wanted to share my opinion because they are gorgeous, these are illuminating face powders but they are actually multipurpose, you can use them as blush, bronzer or highlight and of course you guys know I love me a multipurpose product. The packaging as very classy and the powder itself is beautiful with the rose design on them should I say "embossed" . They have just enough pigmentation in my opinion but if not enough for you they are buildable and are great layered over a cream blush/product or stain, they leave you with a luminous pearl finish, which I love because I love me a healthy glow and not a shimmer also I'm a highlight freak lol so that's what I've been using my favorite one (Amber Nectar) for, the consistency is smooth and silky, it sinks into the skin for those of you with dry skin like me which means it doesn't sit on top and look ashy or chalky. It's meant for all skin types as it states in their description. I think all shades are workable for any skin tone since they can be used in many ways, so all in all I definitely recommend these, if you can get your hands on them go for it. They retail for $9.49 each
The Bronzers are buildable like the illuminating powders, and as I always say I like to apply product little by little and build the intensity so these are perfect for that. The are duo products so you will have a light and a dark, I have actually used one of them as a blush and it looks beautiful, the light shades I have used to highlight the high points of my face and it leaves a gorgeous sheen, and then I topped it off with the illuminating powder to give it a gorgeous finish. The powder itself is smooth and sinks into the skin lovely, I think for the price point and the amount of product you are getting this is a great product. They retail at $9.99 each.
You can find these at your local drug stores, supermarkets, mass retailers, cosmetic specialty stores and online. Places like Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreens, and Sally's Beauty. The link to order online is: milanicosmetics.com
