Lucrative Lip Gloss *Moon Struck Minerals- Younique*

   I was invited to try a product from the Younique make-up line, and I opted for a lip gloss, since my lashes are still trying to grow back in after chemo. The color I chose was LadyLike. It's a rosey-pink-ish color. I was pleasantly surprised that it was as smooth as it was, and not even a bit sticky.
   It went on smooth, and I was more than happy with the color pay off. It lasted through 6 cups of hot cocoa (not a fan of coffee), and still had color left on my lips. I highly recommend this gloss to lip product lovers everywhere. It's a product you'll regret not buying!

KISSInstaWave Curling System Review

   You're probably thinking 'oh look, ANOTHER curling iron'. And you'd be right, it IS a curling iron. It is also unlike anything you've ever seen or used before! This is the most fool proof iron I have ever used. Whether you're a novice or professional hair dresser, this will be the easiest curl you've ever achieved.
   -KissInstaWave is a fully automatic tangle-free curler that instantly creates beautiful curls.
-It's easy enough anyone can use it, at any angle, with any hand.
-Features a curl dial with left and right curl directions.
-It auto shuts off after 90 minutes.
-There are 2 heating settings (low/high) with a maximum temperature of 420 degrees.
                                   *HOW TO*
-Hold the instawave vertically.
-Place a section of hair on the instawave rod.
-Touch the curl dial to the left or right, it automatically catches the hair and curls it.
-Hold for 5-10 seconds for curls, hold longer for tighter curls or beachy waves.
-Pull the instawave down vertically, letting hair out.
Viola! Instant curls!

Overall, I give it a 10/10. Every beauty needs one of these. They are available at Target, Ulta,, and Wal Mart in Canada. Check them out: .
