Shout out to my best friend, Delilah P. Strickland! She just completed Law School! I will be getting my friend back in just a few weeks once she takes the bar exam!

Her only request was that I be there to do her makeup and lashes. Go figure :-)

I wouldn't consider myself a product junkie, but I tend to try different products (ALL THE TIME) out of curiosity and to increase my product knowledge. I will admit if I go to a Target, CVS, Duane Reade, or Walgreens with a beautiful, very tantalizing looking Beauty Department it is hard for me to resist buying something just to try. The CVS Beauty Club, Buy One Get One free or half off deals are the best when trying out something new. Sometimes I buy stuff and I hate it or may find that it does not live up to its claims. Other times, I find things and are surprisingly impressed!

I am having a beauty love affair with with Rimmel London Volume Accelerator Mascara with Avec Volume Boosting Complex.

I love this mascara because the brush really allows the product to fully coat the lashes. It does say Volume Accelerator, but I find this mascara to be more of a defining, separating, and lengthening product. I like to apply 3-4 coats and that gives me what I need. My lashes are non existent without mascara, but the right mascara will have people asking me, "do you have on lashes?"
Wet n Wild makeup has been in my life over half my life! This isn't a new product, but I consistently find myself telling others about the Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Creme Liner. There have been times when I leave the theater late and have to be on set extremely early the next morning. I have been reorganizing my kit at 1 am and realize I didn't replace a, b, or c. I discovered this at a 24 hour Duane Reade one early morning. It works and last all day! I was shocked! I constantly find myself buying it for myself now...because it works! I do not recommend using the brush that comes with it. There are better options out there, but in a pinch with the right precision, one can work it out!!

I am starting to be known as the girl with the bold lip. It appears that I love this trend no matter if its "trending" or not. My latest obsession is the Color Sensational Lipstick from Maybelline. They have tons of options (54 to be exact)! My favorites are Red Revolution and Fifth Avenue Fuchsia! The display is pretty easy to navigate. All the shades are split up by color family and this product was relatively cheaper ($2 less) than some of the Revlon and L'oreal options (just sayin')! This lipstick felt moisturizing on my lips and had a nice sheen, but not too glossy. It had lots of pigment so lasted on the lips even while I was drinking. Its is not long wearing, but a nice stain remained even as my night wore on.

  2. Let me know when you do a review on it. For the amount of money for it, I was impressed. I will say that I am bad about leaving the top off of things at shoots. This is one product that must be covered immediately.

    These types of electrical generators are also limited in a few methods.
    This is specifically true with regard to the volume of Colloidal Silver that you can make using them.
    If you go over 15ppm after that you will locate it to be very challenging to obtain the desired
