A Money Saving Secret,

Recently, I heard about cutting open your Urban Decay Primer Potion to get more of the product. When you think that its all out you can cut it open and its like getting a whole new bottle. I was amazed at how much I had left in my bottle. Unfortunately I did not record myself doing this because it was my first time and it took me a while and I didn't want to look like an idiot. So I will post a video below of someone else doing it that I watched when I was doing it. She is very helpful.

What you will need:
Paper Towels
Jar like container
Something to scoop it out with

Thank You Chiarashine!

Cherry Culture

I found a great website called Cherry Culture. I just ordered some stuff of it today. I will do a review once I get it. They have many different brand names of make-up. Not to mention awesome prices! I bought something that is usually 28 dollars for only 16 dollars! I was so amazed! When you buy something off their website they even give you a free cherry lipgloss with any purchase! Right now they have a deal going that when you buy 40 dollars or more you get free shipping! Awesome, right?!

Negative Calorie Foods.

I bet right now you don't believe me. That there are foods that are actually negative calories. Well there is, the reason they are negative calories is because they take more calories to digest than what they actually are. For instance a piece of cake can be 400 calories but it takes about 150 calories to digest. Then you would only be taking in 250 calories. Make sense? Well I'm going to give you the list of all those negative calorie foods.

List of Negative Calorie Foods

green cabbage
celery root
celery chicory
hot chili peppers
garden cress
green beans
lemon mango
pineapple raspberries
lamb's lettuce

This list was from this website.

Hot Mama Blush.

So for my Birthday my older brother gave me an e-certificate for (I swear they have everything on there!) Of course me being a beauty junkie I bought some make-up. I bought Urban Decay Shadow Transforming Potion and I bought TheBalm's Hot Mama Blush. So far I love both of them. What I wanted to talk about to though is Hot Mama Blush. It can work as an eyeshadow, lip color, or a blush! Plus its a beautiful color. Its a peachy shimmery color. I am not going to do a review on it today but I am going to show you some swatches of it. Since I bought the Urban Decay Shadow Transforming Potion I used it to turn the blush into an eyeliner too! There will be pictures down below! The way I used the Hot Mama Blush is I took my blush brush and I smiled and swept it onto my cheeks for the shimmery glow it gives. Then I took my eye shadow brush and applied to my eye lids. Then finally I put it on my lips. There will also be pictures of be with it on.

The swatch is how it would look transformed as eye liner.

Blush Beautifully!

Fabulous Hair Tips!

Having a bad hair day or your hair looks greasy? Try a scarf or hat to cover your roots. There are many cute hair styles for scarves here! Click on Salvage a bad hair day with a scarf. There are parts 1, 2, and 3.

Not in the mood to style your hair? Braid your wet hair in braids and sleep on it. Then take it out in the morning and put some product in it and mist it with hair spray and you'll look great! Plus everyone will think you slaved over your hair to get that style!

Want more volume? When blow drying your hair flip it upside down and blow dry at the roots. Then once the roots are dry mist with hair spray and blast it with heat from your blow dryer. Then put the blow dryer on cool to lock the look.

For shiny hair try a Garnier Fructis Shine Hair Mist. There are many different kinds. All work well though. When your hair is wet spray it on and brush through. Then after styling hair mist it on again without brushing.

For natural looking straight hair. Skip the flat iron and try blow drying with a round brush. It gives it a more soft, voluminous look rather than a limp and dry look.

Wanna skip a day of washing your hair, but your hair gets so greasy looking? Try a dry shampoo like
Psssst. They have specially made misting dry shampoos for different hair colors.

Want curls but not with a curling iron? Try twisting your hair into a bun when wet and sleep on it. Then when you take it down in the morning and finger style it. Once you get it the way you want it mist it with hair spray. VoulĂ ! Many curls that look natural and have major volume!

Want a chic looking pony. Put your hair into a pony whatever way you would like high, low, straight, or curly. Then take a thin piece of hair from the back of the pony and wrap it around your hair elastic and bobby pin it!

Did you know that the more water you drink the more healthier your hair and skin is?! So drink plenty of water!

Also when you take your vitamins your hair and nails become stronger!

To give hair that piecey textured look buy some texturizing cream and put some in your hands. Rub your hands together to warm the cream and apply it only at the ends of your hair. If you apply it to your root area you hair will become greasy and gross.

Style Beautifully!

Healthy Sexy: Soy Tri-Wheat Leave-in Conditioner.

I've been using this product for almost a year now. I love it so much. Its a leave-in conditioner that helps reduce tangles and leaves your hair soft and shiny!

The product claims:
What it does: Reconstructs, moisturizes and combats environmental stresses by penetrating hair with Soy and Tri-Wheat proteins. Detangles and softens hair Adds light moisture Helps prevent static electricity Special Ingredients: Soy, Wheat Protein

How I used it is I shampooed and conditioned my hair as usual then when I got out of the shower I sprayed the product into my hair and brushed it through to get rid of tangles.

The results I was looking for is a leave-in conditioner that would leave my hair tangle-free, soft, and shiny. Also one that smelled good! My review: I fell in love with this product the first time I used it. I usually have tangled hair when I get out of the shower. I used this conditioner and it got all of them out very easily and it didn't even hurt my hair! Its an all natural product which is great! Once I dried my hair I felt it, it felt super soft and healthy. The product smelled fantastic. It didn't smell like a hairspray or regular hair product. This costs eleven dollars. You can find it at drugstores, hair supply stores, and Target. Leaving your hair soft and shiny, Tori

Rimmel London 16+ Matte Foundation.

Hello everyone! I know, I know I haven't been posting at all and I'm so sorry. There's no excuse! Well anyways back to what I was reviewing is Rimmel London 16 hours Matte Foundation. I've been testing this product for almost 3 months. I really love it! The product claims: Cooling mattifying mousse foundation. NO TRANSFER. Skin Cooler – 16Hr Anti Shine Revolution. Revive skin with an instant and continuous cooling sensation. Refreshing aqua cool formula fights the signs of heat and humidity to prevent shine breakthrough. A perfectly matte, pure complexion for 16 hours. Color-fresh Coverage. Air-light soufflĂ© texture blends easily onto skin for even, flawless, true-color coverage. Skin-loving formula infused with purified water feels fresh and stays put all day long. The way I used it is I grabbed my foundation brush and dipped it into the cute little jar. I applied it evenly all over my face. After that I took some of my translucent powder and brushed it all over my face to seal the finish. The skin type I have is a oil/combination. The results I was looking for is a creamy foundation that isn't drying to my face. I wanted it to last long and feel soft to the touch. I really liked this product because it did exactly what I wanted it to do. It last for a long time! I applied it before I went on my flight to Florida and it LASTED! I am very pleased with this product. I costs a little over seven dollars.
