tarte Waterproof Clay Eye Liner – Review

I have been known to really get myself into trouble when I’m up late watching QVC at 2am. It’s impossible for me to resist a beauty presentation on a home shopping channel. My boyfriend rolls his eyes in disgust as I sit there, glued to the television LOL. Well, Tarte was the lucky brand that got my attention a few nights ago. They were presenting a trio of waterproof clay eyeliners for $29 in black, sage and bronze. They arrived in my mailbox today and I am THRILLED!

Skin Care Goodies from Reviva Labs

The fine people at Reviva Labs recently sent me a few of their awesome (very, very awesome) products to try out. I had heard of this brand before, but never had any experience with their products. They definitely made me a life-long customer! The stuff they sell isn’t your typical moisturizer or exfoliator. They carry products that are different and inginutiave, which I love about any brand.

Review of Astre 24ct Gold Anti-Aging Serum

This is a big post for The Girly Enthusiast, as it’s my first ever review of a skin care product! And I sure did pick a good one :)

I’m only 26 years old, but I am still religious with my skin care routine. I want to keep this face wrinkle-free for as long as humanly possible. And using products that contain as few chemicals as possible is also very, very important to me. That means no parabens, no sulfates, no hydroquione, etc. Lately I’ve found that my regular moisturizing routine wasn’t hydrating my skin good enough. I kept waking up with dry flakey patches no matter how much moisturizer I slathered on (grrr).

Review of L’Oreal One Sweep Eye Shadow and Double Extend Mascara

The stars were recently aligned in my favor as I was one of the lucky girlies from BzzAgent chosen to try out the newest product launch from L’Oreal Paris.. woohoo!

The first product is a pretty revolutionary idea. It’s called “The One Sweep Eye Shadow” which, in theory, is supposed to flawlessly apply 3 shades of shadow to your eye in one clean stroke. The uniquely designed sponge applicator is contoured to be swept across the pan of shadow and glide across your eye to give you that perfectly blended eye makeup effect in seconds.
