NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder-Review


Hey everyone,

I’m in love and I don’t care who knows..lol. I guess you can see how this review is going to go. Highlighting is so popular right now. If they can’t see your glow from space, you’re doing it wrong. 

A new trend in highlighting is duo chrome highlighters. Shades like purple, pink and blue are showing up more in collection. I’m loving this trend.

One of my new favorite highlighters are the NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powders. I currently own two, twilight tint and lavender steel. They come in five shades and retails for $7.99.

After seeing how popular purple highlighters are I really wanted to purchase the lavender steel shade but when I got to the store twilight tint caught me eye. It’s gorgeous, especially if you’re pale like me.

After falling in love with twilight tint, I just had to purchase lavender steel. I like lavender steel but twilight tint is amazing. The lavender shade does work with my skin tone but it doesn’t pack as much glow as twilight does.

These go on smooth and last a long time. These are very buildable. You can go from a subtle glow to a blinding glow.

I recommend checking out this highlighter.

What is your favorite highlighter?

Ditching The Conditioner


Hey everyone,

7 months ago I had gastric sleeve surgery. One of the side effects from Bariatric surgery is hair loss. I really thought I was going to go bald. It was so bad. The hair loss has finally slowed down… Yay!! 

One thing that has helped my hair look fuller and give it more body is getting rid of my hair conditioner. I noticed after I used conditioner, my hair was limp and stringy. I thought at first it was the conditioner that I was losing but after buying way to many conditioners to try, I realized it was just conditioner in general.

So I ditched the conditioner and replaced it with Moroccan oil. I don’t think I will ever be going back to conditioner. 


I have been using the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Moroccan Argan Oil. After washing my hair, I towel dry it and then use just a small amount of the oil. I always let my hair air dry.

Since using the oil, my hair is shiny, soft, sleek and more manageable. I love it!!!!

The only downside is that if you use to much, your hair can look oily. Just use a very small amount and you will never have to worry about oily hair.


Here is my hair after using the oil. I wish I would have took a before picture of when I was using conditioner. 

What do you use on your hair for conditioner?

My Favorite Makeup Remover


Hey everyone,

I love makeup but one thing I hate is removing all my makeup at the end of the day. So, I like to make it as fast and easy as possible.

My favorite makeup remover is Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser. This stuff has been around since 1846, so you know this is some amazing stuff.


Ponds Cold Cream contains 50% moisturizer, so it leaves your skin feeling soft.

My favorite thing about this cleanser is that you don’t have to wash it off. You just rub it all over your face and then wipe it off with a cloth. I do use a wet wash cloth to remove the cleanser but you don’t have to. 

Not only is this moisturizing and easy to use but it actually gets off all your makeup. Even the most stubborn mascara. Plus, it’s extremely affordable.

I highly recommend that everyone tries this at least once. 

Thank you for ready my post. What is your favorite way to remove your makeup?

Wet n Wild Megaglo Makeup Stick Highlight


Hey everyone,

As everyone in the world knows, I’m obsessed with Wet n Wild makeup. The quality and affordability is amazing, especially when you have a makeup budget. So, it’s no secret that I would love the highlight stick.


I bought the shade, when the nude strikes. It’s a really pretty champagne shade.


Here it is not blended out, with flash and without.

This highlighter stick blends out beautifully and lasts all day. It’s gives your skin a beautiful glow. Plus, you can’t beat the $3.99 price tag.

I’m loving that Wet n Wild is expanding their line to include contour and highlighting products. These are an affordable alternative to the pricier products. Save yourself some money and check out these amazing products.
