1. Hair care products and accessories
2. Lipstick, lip glosses, and lip balms
3. Artificial nails
Do these answers surprise you? The majority of women taking part in my poll said that these are the three most noticeable features in a woman; that these are the three prominent areas that people see at first glance. I could see why.
I can definitely see how hair fits the #1 answer among friends. It may be different in other areas, but in South Texas, the humidity and high heat indexes can bring on a whole new definition to hair dilemmas. I know that for me, finding a product that will help reduce frizz, control fly-aways, and prevent breakage is nearly impossible, not to mention finding a product that will enhance any bit of shine we have left.
After using Emmett Cooper’s hair care products, I am happy to say that my hair is well on its way to a beautiful, healthy, lustrous shine. It is already exhibiting fewer frizz problems with each wash and is slowing decreasing the amount of fly-aways my hair so often plagued me with before.
Emmett Cooper Moisture Wash sells for $20 (8 oz) and is intended for frequent washing for those that have normal to dry hair. It is infused with a blend of aloe, evening primrose, and Jasmine. It helps restore sheen, softness and improves the flexibility of hair while minimizing frizz.
I also received, from Emmett Cooper, a sculpt wax. My son has grown a fondness for this product. He loves the fresh mint fragrance and he totally loves that he has the ability to hold his hair where he wants it without it looking like he used cement in order to create it. Though I haven’t styled my hair using the sculpting wax, I have put some on the tips of my hair to help hold them in place. It works wonders. Did I mention how much I love the minty smell? It’s great!
Emmett Cooper Sculpt Wax sells for $22 (2 oz) and is a water-based sculpts wax that is infused with light-reflecting shine polymers. It gives the hold and separation you desire while keeping your hair feeling soft and clean.

On to number two of my product poll: Lipstick, lip gloss, and lip balms…
Whether you live in the blistering cold freeze of the north or the smoldering hot humid sun in the south, at one point or another, you’ll be hit with a pair of chapped lips that are so painful it’ll bring you to your knees.
Companies know how hard the sun and overall weather can be on our lips. Some companies have gone above and beyond the call of duty to create lipsticks, lip balm, lip luster, lip glosses, and lip treatments that are enriched with moisturizers that help keep our lips healthy and succulent. They do this without neglecting the needs for color and vibrant shines.
The following companies and products have been reviewed by me personally and I am thrilled to be sharing the quality of lip products they have to offer.
In no particular order:
Lilylolo offers not only beautiful lip gloss, lip liners, and lip brushes; they offer amazing eye shadows, eye liners, concealers, bronzers, and shimmers. This is a company out of the UK and though their products are priced in pounds, it is an easy conversion of payment using PayPal, Visa, etc.
When I received, in the mail, the nude shimmer lip gloss and lip brush from Lilylolo, I was so happy. It was an instant – OMG, look at this! My husband and I were in the car on our way out to run errands so checking the mail was convenient at the time. Anyway, before we left the house, I fixed myself up a bit but forgot my lips. Receiving this, then, couldn’t have been more perfect. The minute I put the gloss on, I melted. Not because it was 98 degrees outside but because it felt so good. It was an instant gratification of smooth protection across my lips. I felt complete. I even loved the color. The shade and shine of the lip gloss fit perfect with my mood, look, and attitude.
Lilylolo Mineral Cosmetics offers a gloss that’s free of harsh chemicals. They contain moisture rich Jojoba and are scented with extracts to give you a special taste geared towards the color/flavor you decide (it’s like the kid in all of us). The gloss leaves this smooth and shiny finish. It’s 100% natural and is suitable for vegetarians (that’s a new one for me, but hey, that’ll work…it’s an extra bonus). **Please note: when filling your cart, don’t let the price scare you. Once you come to the payment processing page, it will give you an option to pay via PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, etc.
ECO Nvey le maquillage – makeup offers organic lip colors, lip luster, and lip plumpers. They offer products for eyes, foundations, corrective makeup and more. These certified organic products are enriched with moisturizers and essential oils needed to help enhance the natural colors and shapes of your lips.
I received an organic lip luster in “Flirt” as well as an organic lipstick in the shade of Pink. Both were equally beautiful and rich with color. There was a definite noticeable difference between this and other brands out there. I loved that each of them stayed on long after being applied. Oh, and when it was being applied, it felt so creamy. It was soft going on and left my lips feeling soft for a long time after.
ECO Nvey Organic lipstick sells for $28. They deliver both vibrant and natural shades. They are made with Safflower Oil, Organic Caster Oils, and Vitamin E to provide you with soft and smooth lips while the ECO Nvey Organic Lip Lustre (sells for $24) is a dual purpose lip color and moisturizer. It is enriched with organic elements and orange essential oils. Both will leave you feeling beautiful and radiant.

Model CO has many must have products. They offer products for your face, body, lips, and eyes, tanning, accessories, and tools. Today though, I’m going to talk about the beautiful shade of lipstick that I received from Model CO.
Once I tried this lipstick, well, let’s just say I was pretty excited about wearing it. I received it the day I was going to a friend’s birthday party. It was a fun party for grownups only. My kids were at the sitters and I was dressed up; kind of flirty looking which matched the Tango (MC272) I received. It was beautiful. It fit the mood I was in. It fit my strikingly red summer dress and sandals I was wearing and I just felt great – complete – flirty. It made for a great evening of conversations.
The new lip couture ultra-glam lipsticks come in a sleek case with a mirror for that finishing touch anytime. The lipstick comes in 12 shades and sells for $22.

On to number #3 in my personal product poll; Nails, nails, and more nails…
When it comes to nails, rest assured, you’ll find what you’re looking for when you purchase from KISS and Broadway nails.
Pink by KISS is a girl’s only collection that is safe for their nails and approved by many moms. They are easily applied and are removed by soaking hands in warm water for a minute. My girls have always enjoyed all the vibrant, stylish, spunky colors, as well as the wide selection of stickers… this is their favorite part.
This is not all. Pink by Kiss has just introduced color-changing nails. They’re absolutely amazing. When you’re inside, they have one color, but the minute you step outside, the base color changes. The girls love running in and out of the house to see this change happen. I think it’s cool and it keeps the kids entertained.
Kiss, Broadway, and Pink by Kiss are the preferred product in my home when it comes to nail accessories, artificial nails, and files. The brand is trusted to do what I want out of the product. They give me a lot of choices and the girls really love that they make products catered to them and their age group. Everything is reasonably priced (at a price I can afford) and I love the way they look on me. I haven’t seen, tried, purchased, or worn a product I haven’t loved yet.
For more details on the products above, or find a retailer in your area, please visit www.kissusa.com.
So, there you have it; my choices when it comes to hair, nails, and lip products. I enjoyed trying each and every product received and will definitely continue to recommend the above brands to others.
