ELEGANT TOUCH 2013 COLLECTION POLISHED NAILS



POLISHED NAILS IN CHERRY ROSE 312




These polished nails are a clever way to get long-lasting color with a perfect finish. UV Gel Technology provides that added benefit of a salon gel, meaning the nail won't chip, the topcoat won't scratch and the nail stays bright and strong for the entire wear. I am typing perfectly and easily right now wearing them for the 7th day. I have showered several times, cleaned, washed dishes, gone out, etc. and they are holding strong. They still look as good as the first day I put them on and the shine still looks like a "fresh" manicure. They don't chip, scratch, or anything. They are thick enough to feel secure, and that they will not split or pop off BUT, they aren't so thick that they feel like you are wearing some massive chunk of plastic at the end of your finger. To be honest, I hardly notice them now, except for how good they look. They are so easy to put on and are the perfect short length. I really like these nails because they look just like a professional manicure without the waste of time or money that you would experience by going to a salon. The best part is the convenience of having all of my nails done in less than five minutes and being able to do them myself with ease. They are easy to remove too and don't damage my natural nails. If you follow the directions, these nails will last. These are some of the reasons why I have switched from acrylics to tabs and glue-ons. When I tell people about them, no one can believe they're not salon. To me they are obviously not salon done, salon nails never come out so flawless ;) 


MY TIPS
Make sure your nails are very clean before applying the adhesive tabs, push your cuticle down. Make sure the tabs and nails "fits" the nails. Once you put the nails on, break off the little tabs. When I want my press-nail to last even longer, I always use nail glue as an alternative to adhesive tabs.



 These nails come in 8 different colors: Ethereal Rose, Wisteria, Cherry Rose, Coral, Smile red, Garnet, Acai Berry and Jet Black.

ELEGANT TOUCH 2013 COLLECTION


TREND NAILS IN PINK SKY AND LACE



Have fun and add some glamour to your looks with these beautiful nails. These nails are inspired by fashion and celebrity trends. UV Gel Technology provides that added benefit of a salon gel meaning that the nail won't scratch and the nail stays bright and strong for the entire wear. These press on nail tabs are of high quality. They hold nails on tight for quite a long time.  They are so easy to put on, remove, and a very convenient length (short) they are "thinner" and feel natural. These nails are just so well done with fun-fashion designs & colors. I have no trouble matching the nails to my natural nail beds; they look professional every time and I LOVE the break-off tabs, they don't leave that chintzy fake-looking "break off" mark on the nail when you snap them off, just a clean finish. The nails last a long time, too (when applied correctly). I've been wearing mine for about a week now and it looks like the first day. (I'm a mom and I use a lot my hands; these are so practical) This came in 7 different fun designs (Pink Star, Lace, Rainbow Leopard, Pink Sky, Feather, Purple Zebra and Pink Leopard).

My Tips
Make sure your nails are very clean before applying the adhesive tabs. Take your time and make sure the tabs and nails "fits" the nails (covers from left-to-right). Once you put the nails on, break off the little tabs and you are ready to go! when I want my press-nail to last even longer, I always use nail glue as an alternative to adhesive tabs.



ATTRIBUTES

*you don't have to wait for them to grow out to get "filled".

*Don't Break.

RACHEL K HYDROGEL MASK

RACHEL K RADIANCE ILLUMINATOR COLLAGEN+LOTUS STEM CELL HYDROGEL MASK


What this products claims

Hydrogel masks deliver 11-18% more moisture than traditional skin care sheet masks. Hydrogel melts unto your skin, reacting directly to your skin's temperature. It effectively locks in moisture, while its Trans-Dermal Technology allows hydrating agents to penetrate at levels twice greater than other moisturizers. This easy-t-use mask has stem cells extracted from the lotus flower, which promote the division of skin cells, enhancing the skin's intrinsic ability to renew itself. Its gel-like texture contours to your face leaving it soft and hydrated, while refining fine lines and wrinkles. Its cool and refreshing formula, coupled with powerful bio-cleansing abilities, removes dead skin cells, cleans, refines and leaves skin smooth and glowing. For normal, oily, or acne-pro skin, its natural extracts work to clear out pores without irritation, while its hydrating ingredients deliver oil-free moisture, ensuring that your skin is never over dried a and always beautifully vibrant.

My Personal experience 

I scrubbed my face before using this mask, and I did it at night to take full advantage of any kind of moisture absorbing into my skin. The mask comes in two parts. You have to carefully take it out of the package. I placed the first part of the mask on the top part of my face, followed by the lower part. If felt soothing and cool. I kept it on for 30-40 min and when I took it off, I massaged the remaining mask essence that was on the mask package on to my face and neck. The next morning I was very surprised by the difference on how my face looked and felt. My skin was so fresh and incredibly hydrated afterward, it really energizes aging skin without the prickly stinging in some other masks. Soothing and calming effect, I have noticed that this mask really helps keep my skin glowing. Believe me ladies, I have used them all. This is a fantastic product, really like a professional facial at home.

RACHEL K COSMETICS

FIRTS DIFFERENCES BETWEEN BB CREAM AND CC CREAM.

CC CREAM: This is a Color Correcting Cream, the CC cream are designed to improved BB cream, meaning that this is a brightening primer, foundation, moisturizer, SPF or anti-aging. All combined in one tube.


BB CREAM: This is a Beauty Balm, is non-brightening primer, foundation, moisturizer, SPF or anti-aging product.


That is the grand difference.


Rachel K Mineral CC Cream in the shade Neutral




This has a very nice light texture and coverage, is pretty awesome. Medium coverage, goes on smooth, high SPF of 35, gobs of other (purported) skin benefits, and best of all, works with my skin tone and doesn't leave me looking ashen, greasy or dry. It nicely absorbs into my skin like moisturizer, yet evens out my skin tone and covers hyperpigmentation without looking like I'm wearing makeup. It has a sheer effect on my face, without actually being sheer. This lasted all day, was very good with oil control, and didn't accentuate dry areas. I haven't experienced any breakouts or bad reactions to this. I'm constantly getting comments about my "glowing" skin. No one can tell what I'm doing differently, but they notice something's up. This It's easy to apply with either fingers or a brush. This CC Cream is the first thing I've started wearing as a foundation substitute, and I absolutely love the look and feel. This CC Cream is available in 2 shades Original and Neutral.



Attributes
*SPF 35.
*Doesn't go orange or grey on me.
*Dewy finish.
*Covers redness without masking my freckles.
*Doesn't settle into fine lines or pores, 
but this does offer good coverage, long wear time, and a natural look.

*Brightens.
*Hydration.
*Anti-aging.
*Non-Oily.


A) Without Rachel K CC cream

Rachel K CC Pressed Powder in Medium Shade


Rachel K Mineral Color Control Blemish Balm Press powder is 4 in 1 makeup foundation, a natural makeup concealer, powder and SPF protection all in one. It is a luxurious fine and light-weight powderThe finish is a very natural and perfecting mate look with medium coverage that looks more like full but really isnt if that makes any sense?! It really does 'blur' imperfections.  The finish is great, natural looking and is not thick or cakey even with sweat, oil and heat. When I apply this in the morning, I look just as fresh at the end of the day. I don't even have to touch up after 10 hours of wear. I like how it's sweat proof and has sun protection. The powder didn’t emphasize my pores, rather it managed to minimize their appearance. It didn’t emphasize dry patches and flakey skin. It also works great as a setting powder over another foundation. It didn’t break me out. It didn’t dried out my skin (which is a common occurrence with the other press powders). What I like most about it is that it doesn’t have that powdery finish when applied (you know, that one when it is obvious that you are wearing powder because your skin looks as if you applied flour on it). This press powder is available in Three shades ( Fair, Medium and Deep).



Attributes
*SPF 15.
*Antioxidant Ingredients.
*Organic Shea Butter and Vitamin E.
*You can build up coverage with it, I'd say from medium- to full.
*Long lasting.
*Flawless finish.
*Blends Easily.
*Excellent quality.

STUDIO GEAR COSMETICS




Invincible Gel/Cream Liner in the color Invincible Onyx



I must say It works extremely well, and I can't believe it really does stay on my waterline!!! I knew from reading reviews on it that it was supposed to, but I still couldn't believe that it stayed on even while I  bawled my eyes out! I'm truly amazed! it looks great going on, very black, and very smoooooth. It just glides right on and looks great, and this is coming from a person who is eyeliner-challenged. I'd say this is MUCH easier to apply than pencil or regular liquid liner. and using the brush to apply it doesn't only make it easier, it makes it more fun! you feel like an artist! lol. This came in 5 different shades (Adventurine, Earth, Graphite, Lapis and Onyx)



Attributes:
*Great, smooth consistency. Spreads very easily and smoothly, unlike other brands, which is a bit stiffer.
*Dries fairly quickly, but there are a few seconds during which you can smudge the liner and blend it out for a softer effect.
*Deep, beautiful matte black, not shiny at all, and really brings out my brown eyes and defines my eyes.
*Nice, big pot that will probably last forever!

*Long-wearing ( 6 to 8 hours for me)
*Great texture, easy to work with and wears well.

Price $16

Luscious Lip Shine in the color Sin City




This gloss goes on very easily and one swipe is all you need for a really pigmented, glossy look. The color is wonderful, it's a Very beautiful gentle red with a little bit of shimmerwhich I believe would be universally flattering. The formula is not sticky, it is very smooth, silky and  moisturizer. I like the applicator and packaging, very cute. it's a very friendly pinked-up color that goes so well with smoky bronze eyes. I'm very impressed with the quality. This is a Perfect for the summer, the wear on them is about 4 hrs, which for a lipgloss is excellent! I also adore the very light fruity mint smell. This Lip Gloss came in 10 different shades (Torch, Sin City, Oh Honey, Innocent, Desire, Seduction, Temptress, Halo, Tickled pink and Flirtatious).



Attributes

*Very pigmented.
*Hypoallergenic, Paraben free.
*Contains antioxidant oils and vitamin C and E

*Great variety to choose from.
*Light scent.
*Not sticky at all.
*Moisturizer.
*Smooth.

Price $16

IMPACTFULL Pro TLS Mascara


It really is a thick, rich, glossy, volumizing mascara. The brush is the perfect size and reaches even the tiny lashes in the corners of my eyes and the lower lashes. unlike most of the new volumizing mascara with the giant plastic bristled brushes, this mascara comes with a tradional bristle brush that is long and tapered. Another huge plus is that it really separates the lashes.The only way I could ever get this effect is to use multiple mascaras with a primer. This stuff goes on smoothly, and didn't clump even after 4 coats (I only need a couple of swipes for each lash area). It comes off real nice and pretty easy with regular cold cream or mascara remover.


Attributes:
*Jet Black
*Seriously lengthening. I have extremely stubby lashes and this mascara doubles the length of them.
*Volumizing.
*Doesn't smudge on me throughout the day, 
even though it's not waterproof.

*Holds a curl well. I usually end up recurling my lashes after about 6 hours of wearing this.


Price $14.45

BURT'S BEES AVOCADO HAIR TREATMENT


What this product claims

Rich, buttery. We use avocado oil in our pre-wash hair treatment to delivery essential moisture while olive and almond oil. Rosemary and Nettle extract help give your hair a beautifully glossy shine.

My Personal Experience with this Product


First off: If you have fine hair or no issues with dryness, this product is not intended for you. This is a very hydrating product, it contains olive oil and sweet almond oil in addition to the advertised avocado oil, so if your hair is already flat, fine, or moisturized, look elsewhere for something to make your hair shiny, as this will make such hair types oily instead of shiny. When I first heard about it, I thought the avocado and olive oil would be wonderful for me because my hair is dry but I was disappointed. It was difficult to work through my hair and felt greasy. It did not leave the silky feel that I have come to expect from treatment products. In fact, it felt tacky and difficult to rinse. The only thing I like is the apricot scent. I think this maybe will work for a very dry, coarse, frizzy hair. I like Burt's Bees skin care products but I don't will purchase this hair treatment again.

Size 4.34 oz / 123 gr Price $9

Sistina Tuscan Sun Contour Wand


This is a multipurpose cosmetic that contour, highlight  and sculpt can be use on your cheeks, lips or eyes with a cream based and with a neutral bronze shade is suitable for all types of skin. It glides on and blends like a dream. It's non-greasy, non-sticky, feels light on the skin, has great lasting power, doesn't settle in and enhance my pores, and dries to a smooth, powder feel but without looking powdery if that makes sense. There's also no added fragrance and the pigmentation's just right, It's not so overly pigmented that I have to worry about it giving me clown cheeks, but it's not under-pigmented that I need to keep applying to build up color. If I'm in a hurry this is something I can just swipe or dab onto my cheeks, eyes or lips and blend quickly with my fingers or a brush. You can do pretty much anything with it. Really good if you don't want to carry a lot of products with you, It give me a very natural looking, like my color had come from the sun. It's easily the most natural "early summer"- type bronzer I've ever used. I'm also happy that these haven't broken me out one bit.
