Milani has stolen my heart away! I know, I know, I fall in love often, but these beauty products are to blame shining on me with those glittery colors, it will make anyone get butterflies in their stomach. These past few months, when it comes to cosmetics, I have spent most of my money on MILANI. I kid you not. I have ignored my favorite, expensive beauty brands to invest in the products that this company has been making lately. The thing is… Milani gets it. They are delivering quality products at fair prices and I think what’s most important is that they’re LISTENING to what the customers want. They are catering to the public. And that’s the secret for any company’s success. Listen to your consumer. It’s key. Anyhow, I do like the Milani Lip Intense Liquid colors. They are lightweight, moisturizing, creamy, vibrant, gorgeous, shimmery, and beautiful. They are pigmented GLOSSES (no need to add lipstick). They are available in 4 colors: Red Extreme, Pink Rave, Fiery Coral, and Violet Addict. The colors are great, but the only color I will be repurchasing is Read more »Rate this post:
Lately, I’ve been doing my best to eat very healthy and am also trying natural products. I recently purchased the Almond Glow, Almond Skin Lotion by Home Health and I have to be honest, this baby has replaced most of my lotions! This specific Almond Glow lotion is not meant for those allergic to nuts since the main ingredients are:
- Peanut Oil – an excellent emollient and lubricant
- Olive Oil – to nourish the skin
- Almond Oil-an excellent skin conditioner
- Lanolin Oil – to moisturize and soften
- Vitamin E – to maintain and protect skin’s vitality
It’s not tested on animals, is paraben-free, contains no artificial coloring, preservatives, fragrances, petroleum, or gluten. If you’re allergic to any of the above, this lotion is NOT meant for you. Personally, I have fallen in love with it! This is how I use it: I come out of the shower, I stay nearly damp, and put this oil all over my body. Now, here’s the catch, it’s called a lotion, but it really is an oil that WILL STAIN your clothes. After using it, I dry myself with a towel in soft patting motions. Then I wear my bathrobe, go fix my hair and makeup and by 20 minutes or less the oil is dry. It will sink in your body. Then it’s okay for me to wear my clothes. Ever since I’ve been using this my skin is the SOFTEST it has ever been in my entire life. It gives me a natural radiant glow that I adore for under $8 USD! My skin feels so great I can’t stop touching myself! (Take your mind out the gutter!) If there’s one thing I hate about this lotion/oil is that is only 8oz. and it has an overpowering cherry vitamin scent to it. This overbearing smell goes COMPLETELY away in less than 5 minutes, but for those first few minutes the scent is pretty strong. Other than this, I can’t think of anything else negative to say.
Hispanic women are gaining prominence in the U.S. and are becoming a strong influence on the mainstream economy. With 52 million in the U.S. population, Hispanics collectively have an impressive buying power of $1.2 trillion. Within the overall Hispanic demographic, however, the women are the ones in the driver’s seat, according to a recent report published by Nielsen. Hispanic women, aslo called Latinas, are the growth engine of the U.S. female population and are expected to represent 30 percent of the total female population by 2060, while the non-Hispanic white female population is expected to drop to 43 percent. Latinas are becoming more educated, tech savvy and connected, allowing them to write their own destinies and challenge the dynamic of Hispanic households. With 86 percent of Latina women at the helm of purchasing decisions in households, the times are changing and economic power is shifting. (Nielsen)
Talk about girl power!

The BH liquid foundation from the BH cosmetics line just like many of its products is affordable, easy to apply, and of fairly good value. For under $5 you get a foundation they state will:
Our new Complexion Collection of Liquid Foundation provides medium-to-full-coverage for soft, flawless looking skin. The unique formula is fragrance-free and light-weight, and provides a long-lasting finish for daily or professional studio wear. 0.85oz/25.14ml
While it is true it provides good coverage and leaves the skin looking somewhat flawless, it is not fragrance free. It has an old grandma perfume scent to it that wasn’t to my liking. But if you like the way a grandmother’s perfume smells then this may be your thing. I usually am either light or nude beige in most foundations. For this one, I’m Light Olive-L2. That is their lightest color. The second lightest is Light Rose-L3 and the ROSE part should be emphasized since it has a strong reddish-pink pigmentation to it. Light Rose (top); Light Olive (bottom) under natural lighting
I did like this foundation. For the price is not bad, but good luck trying to find the perfect match for you especially if you’re fair or light skinned. It did give me a nice finish. I give it a “B-” and will most likely use it a couple of more times, but I don’t see this as a holy grail or something I see myself repurchasing.
Exactly three years ago I gave the Maybelline FIT me! foundation a C- and I know I’m pretty tough on my reviews, but that was only because it made me look flawless for a few hours and then it started streaking causing a total beauty heartbreak for me. Trying to find a foundation I love has not been an easy feat. I was recently at the drugstore, saw it, and recalled how much I liked this foundation at first and decided to give it a second chance. I’m far too kind! This time I moisturized and did set it with powder. And I have to say, I fell in love with it once again! Now, I’m not going to lie, it oxidizes (turns slightly darker) after a few hours, but this time, it stayed put. It doesn’t bring a pump so it can get Read more »Rate this post:
