Clinique Black Honey Collection (Fall 2011)

This collection all started with the classic Black Honey lip gloss. It looks very intimidating in the tube, but its actually really sheer. Black Honey now has its very own collection.

Clinique Black Honey Gradient Powder Blush $29.50 USD

Clinique Black Honey Color Surge Eyeshadow Quad $25.50 USD

Clinique Black Honey Brush-On Cream Liner $15.00 USD

Clinique Black Honey Dual-Ended Almost Lipstick & Long Last Glosswear $21.00 USD

The only thing that I really want from this collection is the gradient blush. I have been obsessed with gradient blushes every since MAC Ripe Peach!

N.Y.C. Smooth Mineral Loose Blush in Pearl Mocha

I have been obsessed with loose powder blushes lately. I happened to get this one at Dollar Tree. I am so glad that I decided to give this a chance. This was the only shade I could find, but I LOVE it!! It is named Pearl Mocha, but it does not seem very "Mocha" to me. It seems live a mauve with some peachy undertones. You will need to have a light hand when using this, because it is very pigmented. A little goes a long way with this blush! This blush is definitely shimmery, so I wouldn't recommend it if you don't like shimmer blushes. I also have been using just a touch of this over another blush to add some shimmer. If you can still find this in stores I would suggest picking it up. You would probably be able to find it on Ebay or Amazon.

Made From Earth Lip Balm Review

Made From Earth strives to provide "Organic, holistic and chemical free" products. They carry skin care, hair care, and body care products along with their lip balms.

I don't know how anyone else feels, but I absolutely cannot stand it if I have dry lips. I have one if not more lip balms/chapsticks on me at all times. At this exact moment, there are at least three at the bottom of my purse. I was lucky enough to be sent two of these lip balms (Vanilla and Citrus Fresh) along with a few other products to review. I am obsessed with anything vanilla, therefore I would have to say that the vanilla one is my favorite. I keep one in my purse and one on my nightstand. I love these lip balms from Made From Earth. The best thing about them, other than the fact that they leave my lips moisturized, is that they are organic. The only downside about these products is that they are not very widely available. That said, when these two are gone I will definitely be purchasing more.

Vanilla Lip Balm Ingredients:
  • Organic Sunflower Oil
  • Organic Beeswax
  • Organic Jojoba Oil
  • Organic Vanilla Essential Oil
  • Vitamin E
  • Rosemary Extract
  • Organic Calendula

  • Organic Sunflower Oil
  • Organic Beeswax
  • Organic Jojoba Oil
  • Organic Essential Oils of Orange, Lemon and Lime
  • Vitamin E
  • Rosemary Extract
  • Organic Calendula

These lip balms retail for $3.99 USD and can be purchased on their website. They do offer as well a two pack of lip balms in "Ice Cream" scent/flavor for $5.00 USD.

There will be a giveaway coming up so stay tuned!

Streekers Review

Streekers are a liquid temporary hair dye. They retail for $10.95 USD and can be purchased either on their website or at Ulta. They are available in 8 different colors: blue, pink, yellow, orange, purple, green, ultraviolet, and red.

The applicator is a doe foot sponge tip, much like a lot of lip gloss wands. It is super easy to apply. Once you apply it where you want, let it dry then brush it out and you can style your hair as normal. It doesn't flake off not even one bit. The lighter your hair is the more color payoff you will get. I have dark brown hair and it even gave me a noticeable tint of color. If you have blonde hair, it may take 2-3 washes for the color to come completely out. It will probably last 5-8 times if you are just doing streaks. They are ammonia free and don't contain any harsh chemicals.

This would be perfect for Halloween, or any occasion where you want to spice up your look. It would be great to use if you have kids on " Crazy Hair Day" at school.

I love this product and HIGHLY suggest it!!!

Thanks to Jennifer at Streekers for giving me the chance to review this product. She as well sent me some extra to giveaway, so STAY TUNED!
