Models Own Makeup Review

*Samples were provided in exchange for an honest review. No compensation was received for this post.*

Models Own is a bright and eye-catching brand of makeup. The electric neon packaging and bold shades are fun and visually appealing.

I was recently invited to review LIX Matte Liquid Lipstick and Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder.

LIX Matte Liquid Lipstick $7.99

  • Matte finish (my favorite!)
  • Comes in six shades. I had samples of Coral Fresh and Berry Cool. The colors were too daring for me, personally. I can’t conjure up a personal or work-related occasion where I could show up with a spunky, Coral Fresh lip. The Berry Cool shade reminded me of the brown lipstick I wore in Middle School (hello 90’s). Again, not a lip color I could see myself wearing at this point in my life.

Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder $11.99

  • Soft finishing powder
  • Comes in two shades. I had a sample of Golden Sand. The pigment is strong and the finish is very shimmery. With proper blending, I could use this highlighter for a night time look.

Models Own is available exclusively at Ulta

Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreen Review

*Samples were provided in exchange for an honest review. No compensation was received for this post.*

Whether you live on the East Coast, West Coast or somewhere in between, Summer temperatures have been creeping in to remind us that Memorial Day is just around the corner. The unofficial kick off to Summer signals the start of outdoor living – pools, beaches, family barbecues, festivals and warm-weather vacations are now within our reach.

I don’t need to lecture anyone on the importance of protecting your skin from the sun but I do want to share products that will be a part of my beach bag this Summer.

Hawaiian Tropic recently launched Silk Hydration Weightless Face Lotion Sunscreen. This new breathable formula feels like I barely have anything on my face. With its broad spectrum SPF 30 and UVA & UVB protection, it’s an essential sunscreen to wear outside. It does leave a sheen on my face but the shine goes away after the sunscreen is fully absorbed in my skin.

Additional Hawaiian Tropic launches this year include:

  • Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless C-Spray (SPF 15 & 30): The same Silk Hydration Weightless formula now in an easy application format that leaves skin feeling soft, moisturized and indulgent. I simply love this spray! It absorbs quickly and smells amazing.
  • Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Clear Spray SPF 50 and Lotion SPF 50: Designed to stand up to outdoor activities while making your skin look and feel beautiful, the Island Sport line is now available in SPF 50 for stronger protection. Certain sun and water sport outings require a strong SPF. This non-greasy formula is perfect for breaking a sweat and smells divine, much like the Weightless line. I like that this line is available in lotion and clear spray for either application preference.

Kristin Cavallari’s 2017 Met Gala Look

GET THE LOOK:

“First I prepped her clean damp hair with Sachajuan Styling Mousse from roots to ends. Followed that by taking two inch partings and spraying Sachajuan Ocean Mist at the roots for maximum volume and bounce.

Finally smoothed a quarter sized about of the Sachajuan Styling Cream from the mineshaft to the ends for some light hold. I then blew her hair dry using a medium sized round boar bristle brush.

Next I took random sections and wrapped them about a 2inch Barrel Curling Iron to add some texture and bend.

After I did the entire head that way, I then pulled the nape of her hair into a low pony. I gathered the rest of the hair and made a second pony right in top of that. Finally, I wrapped the two pony tails together and made a messy knot to hide the two ponytail holders.

Lastly I finished with Living Proof Medium hold hairspray to seal in the style.”
