Crazy Rumors Fresh Squeezed Lip Balm Review

Crazy Rumors Lip Balm ReviewLip balm, ChapStick, and other lip gloss products are some of my very favorites when it comes to beauty goodies. I was excited to learn about Crazy Rumors Fresh Squeezed Lip Balm and even happier to receive two flavors for the purpose of this review. Four citrus flavors make up this organic beauty collection, including Orange Juice, Pink Grapefruit, Lemonade, and Limeaid.

I really enjoyed the citrus flavors of the Crazy Rumors Fresh Squeezed lip balms. I got to try Pink Grapefruit and Limeaid, which are both very refreshing. These lip products have a slightly waxy taste as well, but it’s not a bad taste – just an organic kind of taste. Crazy Rumors lip balms are also cruelty free and vegan certified products. They contain natural and organic ingredients to soothe your lips and keep your kisses soft. Certified organic ingredients include Jojoba oil, extra virgin olive oil, Shea butter, and Vitamin E.

I would love to try the lemonade and orange juice flavors one day as well. I’m impressed with both the pink grapefruit and limeaid varieties – very yummy and nice to have on hand on a hot summer day or any time of year.

These lip balms by Crazy Rumors are available in a multi-pack of four yummy citrus flavors or you can get them separately as well. They are available at $3.49 a piece or $13.49 for the four piece juice collection. For more information, check out http://crazyrumors.com.

 

Choices in Classy Lingerie, Bras, and Underwear for Women

Very best lingerie for different occasionsLingerie, bras, ladies underwear, and intimate accessories allow a girl to feel flirty and sexy. A woman can reserve sexy lingerie for special occasions or she can alternate through her intimates on a daily basis. It is important for a woman to have a varied wardrobe of bras and underwear to suit her regular garments, such as tight pants or skirts, nearly sheer shirts and dresses, and white clothing that might show any other color bra or panty. Consider these other tips on lingerie and choices in intimate apparel.

Whether you have a hot date or an ongoing lingerie fetish, it can be fun and exciting to have a variety of sexy garments and accessories to dress up your body under your clothing. Consider these fun and fashionable choices for ladies bras, underwear, and lingerie you can enjoy for special occasions or any time.

Sexy and Functional Bras of All Kinds

It’s a common belief that all women should own a black lace bra and matching thong or panty for that special date night. A white bra is also important for when you wear a slightly sheer white top or dress, and a nude colored bra can also do the trick for light colored clothing. But there are so many fun colors and styles of bras! You can find everything from functional bras providing support, especially like a cotton sports bra for working out and silk bras for nice occasions.

Bras come in all shapes and sizes. Different bra styles are suitable for all the occasions you’ll encounter, from formal dances like proms and homecoming or weddings, comfortable bras for everyday wear, and so forth. You can choose from halter bras, convertible bras, sports bras, cupless bras, front opening bras, transparent bras / invisible bras, and so many others. Animal print bras like a leopard print bra can be a lot of fun as well.

You can also dress up your existing convertible bras and strapless bras with fashion bra straps to go along with your wardrobe and fancy tops and dresses. These pretty bra straps may come in a wide array of colors and styles, including rhinestones, pearls, and semi-precious metals, among others.

Ladies Underwear, Thongs, and Panties

Countless types and styles of ladies underwear are available to suit just about any outfit. Look for a ladies thong to go with your dress slacks and tight pants or skirts. You can find frilly panties to give you a girlie look or a sheer bikini or see thru underwear for coverage that is still quite sexy. Micro panties offer a very seductive look that can be a low-rise panty or low-rise ladies thong or g-string.

When you feel the inclination for a frisky evening, let your wild side loose with a crotchless panty or a garter belt with clippies and thigh-highs. You can wear your sexy panties and lingerie under your clothing as a secret surprise for your significant other. It usually works best to have a nice selection of undergarments to go with all of your outfits for all your needs.

The Very Best Lingerie for Any Occasion

Sexy lingerie for every body type

Lingerie shopping can be lots of fun! Depending on your body type, you can find the very best lingerie styles for your curves. Women can find petite lingerie for small frames and plus-size lingerie for curvier frames. The practically endless styles, colors, and patterns of lingerie keep things interesting and exciting as the seasons change and new colors and styles become available.

Fun patterns like hot pink with bling, animal prints, and camouflage lingerie, to name a few, make great choices for playful lingerie. Classic black lingerie works well for a seductress look while white lace lingerie can be perfect for weddings and honeymoons. Racy red lingerie is always a hit! Some top styles of lingerie to add to your wardrobe may include baby dolls (like short little night dresses), corsets, and legwear, to name just a few. Long nightdresses can be elegant and sexy while teddies can be a racy option for your evening.

A popular time of year to shop for sexy lingerie is often during the end of January and beginning of February, leading up to Valentine’s Day. You should be able to find beautiful Valentine’s baby doll lingerie as a sweet evening outfit for your romantic day of love. Don’t forget to choose some sexy lingerie around the holidays and especially in time for your honeymoon. For best results, go to a lingerie shop at least once to find your size in most styles. Then you can look around in person or online, finding the perfect lingerie for your body and your style preferences.

 

How to Get Wet or Dry Liquid Foundation out of a White Shirt (or Other Piece of Clothing)

Did you ever spill liquid foundation or coverup makeup on a white shirt, light piece of clothing, or any article of clothing for that matter? It’s got to be right up there with spaghetti sauce stains and lily pollen stains. Thankfully, I found a solution to liquid foundation stains on clothing that has worked every time for me so far! If you are wondering how to get a wet or dry liquid foundation stain out of your clothing or fabric, these steps should help you tremendously, even days later!

An old bottle of liquid foundation makeup splattered when I tried to get just a dab out of the bottle. It got all over my brand-new white off-shirt, of course. Here are the steps I used when it was still wet, and again today when doing laundry and I noticed I had missed a spot that had somehow gotten on the back of my shirt (?!).

How to Remove Liquid Foundation Stains from Clothing

Try these simple steps to remove both wet and dry liquid foundation splatter and stains from clothing.

1.DO NOT rub the stain into the fabric. Take off whatever garment just got splattered and set it aside.

2.Gather these materials – foam makeup wedge or spare toothbrush used for cleaning and a can of plain white shaving cream, and get set up at the sink.

3.Pour some cold water over the stain.

4.Dispense a dab of shaving cream onto the makeup wedge.

5.Use either the foam wedge or the toothbrush to gently rub the shaving cream into the garment wherever the stains are located.

6.Inspect the stained area after about 20-30 seconds. You should see marked improvement – the makeup stain should appear much, much lighter.

7.For dried foundation stains on clothing, you may need to gently scrub a little longer.

8.Let the shaving cream sit on the garment for a minute or two.

9.Rinse away the shaving cream and toss your garments in the washing machine on cold, gentle cycle, if washable.

10.DO NOT put them in the dryer or use heat to dry. This will set any remaining stains permanently.

I wish I had thought to take before and after pictures of my spot treatment but you’ll have to take my word for it. I am thrilled to say I don’t see any residue from the foundation stains. Just be careful not to damage your clothing while scrubbing! If you use this method and it works, please leave a comment below to let others know of its continued effectiveness. I’ve tried it on about three separate occasions with 100% success rate. If you have other methods of removing liquid foundation from clothing, please feel free to share those, too!

 

Wai Hope Organic Skincare Products Review – Facial Cleanser & Recharging Mist

Wai Hope Organic SkincareNatural and organic products seem to be the way to go these days. Anything that screams “Green!” generally lures in a certain crowd as well as a number of curious others. This is a good thing and may become even more prevalent in the months and years to come. Wai Hope is a relatively new line of organic skincare products that help to renew skin that has been damaged or weakened by acne, aging, the environment, medicines, and chemotherapy. The creator of Wai Hope is actually a cancer survivor who took matters into her own hands when she couldn’t find skincare products that met her needs.

Wai Hope Recharging MistVincene Parrinello, Wai Hope founder and cancer survivor, came up with a breakthrough element, Wai Restructured™ Water, containing rare Red Fijian Seaweed, Callophycus Serratus, to help combat the tendency of skin to be altered by UVA/UVB radiation, various medicines, diseases, and stress. With a special focus on providing skincare products for real, everyday people ranging from cancer patients to acne sufferers to sunbathers or even those with dry skin, the Wai Hope lineup includes organic lotions, moisturizers, peels, scrubs, and toners, among other skin-centric products. These products contain the patented water as well as truly organic ingredients that are suitable and designed for all skin types.

I received a couple of free products from Wai Hope for the purpose of my review. As if the story itself weren’t inspiring enough, I found the Seawater Recharging Mist to be a fast favorite, especially after a long car ride or a flight. The light spray and cool water molecules give a gentle and refreshing burst during your work day or whenever you need a quick pick-me-up. This mist contains too many wonderful, natural ingredients to mention, so I’ll have to refer you to the Wai Hope website here. The product does contain the feted Wai Restructured Water, making it a great item for yourself or a friend. My only concern is that the 4-oz bottle does not meet carry-on regulations, but if you tuck it inside your checked luggage, you’ll still very much appreciate the refreshing spritz of cool, healthy water when you touch down.

I also got to try out a sample size of the Pure HopeTM Organic Cleanser, which came across as an aromatherapy face wash more than anything. I genuinely enjoyed the fragrance of this face cleanser while using it in the shower. The spa-like scent is tantalizing to say the least. Ingredients include enriched BHW Complex “tea” broth, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, and my favorite, soothing Coconut Milk. This product is designed to soothe and hydrate skin while gently whisking away impurities. It’s also free from parabens, formaldehydes, perfumes, resins, sulfates, and petrochemicals/silicones, according to product information.

I greatly enjoyed sampling these rejuvenating and relaxing skincare products and I am happy to stand by the brand. You may not know this, but Wai Hope’s founder lost both her parents and her sister to cancer and even had her own bout with it. Instead of sitting back, she responded by creating a product lineup that can help people with troublesome skin. Her brand also gives back to charity, donating a portion of every sale to charity. By trying out Wai Hope products, we can assist with the same. For more information, please visit www.waihope.com.

 

Queen Helene Original Mint Julep Masque Review

Queen Helene Facial MasqueEver since I tried my first facial mud masque I’ve been hooked. I’ve tried many brands and I enjoy doing so, but one product I keep coming back to is Queen Helene Original Mint Julep Masque. That’s because, despite all the other products I’ve tried, this one gives me the results I long for in a skincare product. Do you know what I’m getting at? Sure you do. I want a product that can make excessive skin oils and blemishes disappear in about 48 hours or less. In most cases, I’ve found that with Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Masque.

I know most times people read product packaging and marketing materials with a boulder of salt, protecting themselves from disappointment. I can tell you, at least from my experiences and with my oily to combination skin, I have had nothing short of fantastic results with this green clay face mask. The product packaging states, “Helps dry up acne pimples, rinse away blackheads, & shrink enlarged pores.” I don’t get enlarged pores, but I can tell you, those annoying oily pimples that don’t usually go away on their own – well they are history when I use Queen Helene’s. I am always amazed at the amount of oil this skincare product sops off my face, even when I’m not feeling it ahead of time.

Sometime else I love about this product besides its incredible results is the very humble price for a large bottle of 8 ounces. I also find it especially easy to stay stocked up on it, since I can usually find it in my favorite pharmacy drugstores and grocery stores. You can also order it online at Amazon.com.

To use Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque, simply wash your face and apply the green clay masque while your face is still damp. Wait a few minutes until it hardens and dries to the touch. Your skin will feel tighter as the impurities are drawn out. Usually leaving it on for 15 minutes will do the trick. I often wash off the face masque in the shower, but you can use warm water and a washcloth equally well.

My favorite part of using this product is how my skin feels after I’ve rinsed it away. The soft, smooth, soothed skin feels great and oil-free thanks to a timeless skincare technique that works wonders at home as well as at the spa.

Product Review of PURE FIJI Coconut Milk Shampoo and Coconut Crème Conditioner

PURE FIJI Coconut Milk Shampoo and ConditionerCoconut Infusion!
I’ve neverss had someone ship me something all the way from Fiji before, so I’m sure you can imagine my excitement when I received a package that had indeed come to the States from one of my most dreamed-about tropical locations on the globe. I couldn’t be more excited about the luxurious coconut shampoo and conditioner duo, which I’ve been using for the past couple of weeks. The kind folks at PURE FIJI shipped me a complimentary full-size bottle of both PURE FIJI Coconut Milk Shampoo and PURE FIJI Coconut Crème Conditioner along with a Pineapple Candle for the purpose of my review. I’m more than thrilled to share my experience with you!

The more I try different products I start to realize how far things can vary in terms of quality, craftsmanship, and so on. The coconut shampoo and conditioner products from PURE FIJI do NOT disappoint. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that I am a complete coconut fanatic, but this product goes way above and beyond just liking it for the scent. I am very happy to report that PURE FIJI shampoo and conditioner hit the mark on every piece of criteria on which I would grade a product. Let’s go through it….

•    Scent – I absolutely adore how much the fragrance of PURE FIJI Coconut Milk Shampoo and Coconut Crème Conditioner (Coconut Infusion) products lingers after a shower is long done and hair is evenly dried. The lingering fragrance of the coconut infusion is tantalizing and makes me want to shower more than once a day – seriously.

•    Hair Softness – The quality of my hair following a shower using these coconut hair goodies is remarkably improved from your average grocery store or pharmacy shampoo and conditioner products. Even my husband had to comment on how soft my hair was after using them. And my hair is normally soft to begin with (never treated, never dyed), so that’s huge in my book.

•    Cleaning Ability – Again, nothing but great remarks here. After washing my hair with PURE FIJI products, it very easily rinses clean (more easily than normal) and leaves my hair feeling free from residue and other annoyances.

Summer 2011 Hot Nail Polish Colors and Trends

Pirates of the Caribbean Silver Shatter nail polishA fun summery manicure or pedicure can be the perfect treat for your appearance this summer. There’s still plenty of time to test and enjoy the hot nail polish colors for summer 2011. Consider the current nail polish trends or make up your own to get a pretty new look for your fingers and toes in the warm weather. Check out our summer 2011 hot nail polish colors and trends report to get the latest on the hottest shades for the season.

No matter if you plan to hit the beach or just spend the weekdays working and the weekends relaxing, check out these hottest shades for summer and beyond to give you a fun and flirty look this summer! Here is our preview for summer 2011 hot nail polish colors.

Summer 2011 Nail Polish Trend #1: Bright Candy Colors
Coral, pink, orange, blue, green, and other bright and cheery candy colors continue to be a huge hit for summer 2011 nails. Orange tones especially are holding their place as one of the hot nail colors for summer 2011 (not to mention last year’s craze). Summer manicure and pedicures look fantastic with a single shade or a nice combination of colors like a bright and contemporary French manicure or a solid mani with an elegant stripe here or there.

Combinations of these bright candy color nail polish shades can sort of look tropical, especially with blue and orange or pink and green. You can also enjoy trying different colors across different weeks, changing up your nail polish as often as you are comfortable redoing your nails.

I received a handful of bright nail polish colors to try for our summer 2011 guide to nail polish. JULEP, a classy nail polish brand with lovely, skinny bottles and vibrant colors, offers three gorgeous shades for spring and summer nails. JULEP’s hot nail colors for 2011 include Natalie (a bright pinkish coral shade), Gloria (an orangey coral color), and Amy (a medium blue tone). I really enjoyed the entire experience with these colors and this brand. The bottles are very skinny but the nail polish brush is still efficient and easy to use. I enjoyed using the Natalie color for my manicure and the Gloria color for my pedicure.

Some of the other hottest nail lacquer colors for summer 2011 include ORLY’s Pinup Collection, which features Va Va Voom (Pink Neon Crème), Here Comes Trouble (Sparkle Green), Coquette Cutie (Coral Crème), and Bubbly Bombshell (Purple Glitter). I received the latter three for testing purposes and must admit the two glitter colors are my favorites out of the three ORLY shades I received. The purple and green glitter polishes have a unique blend of tiny sparkles and bigger pieces of glitter, offering a more dimensional look. The glitter nail colors work especially well as a topcoat, adding a special sparkle to any manicure or pedicure.

Summer 2011 Nail Polish Trend #2: Color-Changing Mood Nail Polish
The trends for summer 2011 hot nail polish colors get even more fun and feisty with nail polish that actually changes color when you wear it! In the Mood nail polish is a “mood nail polish” that works much like a mood ring, changing colors when your body temperature changes. Unlike a mood ring though, these colors only take on two shades apiece.

I received three shades of In the Mood nail polish to try out for this summer nail color review. Naughty is a beautiful sparkly orange nail polish color that changes to yellow on warm fingers or sometimes in the sunlight. I’m not a big fan of yellow nail polish by itself, so while I adore the orange, I’m not totally crazy about wearing this when my hands are warm and the shade turns to yellow. The bluish purple shade, Guilty, turns a sweet shade of lighter blue when it gets warmed up. The pink shade, Ditsy, switches back and forth between a darker pink and a lighter pink. The textures are more of a matte finish with a smooth and lovely texture. I really enjoy the concept of mood nail polish since I am a child of the 80s and I’ve had my fair share of mood rings and color-changing jewelry. I recommend these or other fun mood nail polish products for a fun and different take on your traditional manicures and pedicures!

Summer Nails 2011 – Trends #3 and #4


Perfect Lip Gloss for Raspberry Lovers – Philosophy Raspberry Sorbet Lip Shine

Maybe it isn’t fair for me to write this review, since I am a huge fan or raspberry as well as all things lip balm or lip gloss. Or maybe that makes me the perfect person to write this review. Either way, I am super excited to share with you the amazing find that is Philosophy’s Raspberry Sorbet Lip Shine. This is my best beauty splurge yet – I believe I spent a full $10 on this goodie, but it’s well worth the cost for this luxurious lip treat that I’ll enjoy all summer long, and beyond.

“Sweet kisses are the best treat,” the tube of raspberry shine says boldly, reminding us of another great reason why we love lip gloss so much. This lip product has a distinctive sparkle and a rich raspberry taste that is out of this world. The tube is a nice size, 14 g. / 0.5 oz, which is typically easy to find inside even the biggest black-hole of a purse. I have had this for several months and though I don’t use it compulsively (I have about 80 lip balm products, probably), I find it just lasts and lasts.

So the raspberry flavor is my favorite. I also love the sparkle and shine this beauty goodie adds to your lips. It is rich and emollient without feeling too sticky. I also enjoy that I can stand it upright on my makeup counter bathroom counter when I’m getting dolled up in the morning.

You can get this wonderful raspberry-flavored lip shine product at Sephora or online at Amazon.com. Believe me when I tell you, if you like raspberry, Philosophy, and lip products, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!

 

“It Doesn’t Get Any Countrier Than This” – McGraw Southern Blend

I feel like there are three types of men who wear cologne: Men who wouldn’t otherwise be aware of its existence had someone else not purchased it for them, men who did bother to put a little time and effort into discovering which scents are worth having, and finally, those men who are willing to buy a brand purely on endorsement.

And there are plenty endorsements out there, celebrity or otherwise, hawking men’s cologne. David Beckham, Michael Jordan, and Antonio Banderas, known for being the sweatiest, smelliest high performance athletes and actors have cashed in their names and bottled their fame, charisma, and sexual prowess so that you, luck guy, might partake in their sweet success.

This stuff, McGraw Southern Blend, has two major endorsements going for it: Tim McGraw, and the whole entire South. That’s a lot to distil down to an aggravatingly small one fluid ounce bottle. One the one hand, you have Mr. All-That-Is-Man Tim McGraw. That guy’s moustache alone can bench press 150 lbs, play the guitar, and fix an engine, all at the same time. And on the other hand you have the South; not the incestuous lynch mob south, but the refined, sophisticated, values oriented high-society South. I’m talking watching fireflies and heat lightning through the oak trees from the front porch South.

So has it worked?

No, unfortunately not. For starters, the bottle is a joke. The cap looks like a chintzy gold painted plastic Christmas tree ornament done wrong. The top of the bottle is supposed to be saddled in “leather”, but the plastic is so cheap it could actually be mistaken for treated cardboard.

The cologne itself wants to be manly with tobacco and whisky base and middle notes respectively. However, this is as much commentary around current perceptions of manliness as it is ineffective essential oils. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t smell bad, but it doesn’t smell good, either. And what little scent there is doesn’t last half as long as most other colognes I’ve tried. What we have here is little more than a fuzzy memory of southern heritage, a half hearted attempt at emotional evocation, which is probably a long way from where McGraw had intended on landing.

Ain’t That The Way It Always Ends?

 

Ship Shape and Ready to Sail – Pure Nautica Discovery

It’s the first week of July and summer has finally found the Pacific Northwest. Fitting then that I should get my hands on Nautica’s new-for-2011 Pure Nautica Discovery, a summer scent if ever there were one.

Keeping well within the brand’s wheelhouse (get it? (wheelhouse is both a nautical term for the location a ship’s steering wheel and jargon for “sweet spot” (OK, never mind, jeez))), the bottle fades from nearly clear up top to a lovely topaz blue color. Grooves at the bottom of the glass add a weight to the bottle that anchors the brushed aluminum look of the cap. It’s a smart, safe package to be sure.

So what’s it like to wear?

Top notes are nice and airy; a little citrus noise balanced with a splash of sea water. It’s not too fruity which is fine because this scent is definitely marketed towards the male half of the population. Middle notes don’t stick around long, but lavender, ginger, and coriander do make themselves known, for a while at any rate. Bottom notes, the ones that hang around all day, are surprising; sandalwood and Virginia cedar settle down to a very pleasant aroma that does not lend itself to fatigue – very important if you’ll be wearing this every day. Really, it’s like carrying around a mug of spiced summer cider. Delicious.

This is a scent devoid of all drama; perfect for someone just discovering cologne. Wear it to work, around home, and even out in the evenings. This is likely not for the connoisseur, it doesn’t really speak to a specific personality. Wonderful, then, for most of us.
