Drugstore Buy of the Week - NYX Worth The Hype Volumizing + Lengthening Mascara


 NYX Worth The Hype Volumizing + Lengthening Mascara 
2018 had been a VERY good year for mascara lovers.  I've found another great pick that won't break the bank, from one of my favorite brands, NYX . 

NYX Worth The Hype Volumizing + Lengthening Mascara is a name that would be pretty hard to pull off it it was just as so so mascara, so NYX made sure not to dissapoint you.  NYX Worth The Hype Volumizing + Lengthening Mascara provides great length and volume with a silky, creamy lightweight formula.  The mascara is not too wet or dry, and with just two coats my med/long lashes looked twice and long and thick, with great separation and no flaking or clumping.



If you also love a formula that you can modify depending on your mood, NYX Worth The Hype Volumizing + Lengthening Mascara is perfect because it easily buildible to the "false eyelashes" look, or with just one coat, nicely lengthened, naturally separated lashes.

The NYX Worth The Hype Volumizing + Lengthening Mascara brush is also great fro getting into the corners and the lower lashes.  

During the day NYX Worth The Hype Volumizing + Lengthening Mascara didn't smudge, flake or transfer and my lashes stayed full and dark until I removed the mascara late at night. It was very easy to remove using a makeup wipe or eye makeup remover as well as an oil based cleanser.


If you want to see a real difference in the length and volume of your lashes, and don't want to break the bank, NYX Worth The Hype Volumizing + Lengthening Mascara is now one of the best on the market- hands down. - RLB

Body Care Find - Sol de Janeiro Glow Oil Copacabana Bronze



Sol de Janeiro Glow Oil Copacabana Bronze 

Sol de Janeiro has created yet another (amazingly scented) way to get the feel and beauty of Brazil and beautiful skin with their Sol de Janeiro Glow Oil Copacabana Bronze.


This lightweight and fast absorbing oil is infused with their addictive, iconic Cheriosa 62 fragrance from their best selling Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, which gives subtly bronzed, hydrated skin with a slightly dewy finish.  Sol de Janeiro Glow Oils Copacabana Bronze is made with Cupuaçu butter, antioxidant-rich Açaí oil, and conditioning coconut oil. 


I love Sol de Janeiro Glow Oils Copacabana Bronze's subtle bronze glow and the beautiful lightweight, yet extremely hydrating formula.  If you've tried other body bronzers in the past but were put off by how much glitter they have, Sol de Janeiro Glow Oils Copacabana Bronze will be perfect for you.  


The shimmer in the Copacabana Bronze is very fine and the color a true, light bronze which luminized my skin tone beautifully.  The Sol de Janeiro Glow Oils come in Copacabana Bronze and Ipanema Sunset which work on all skin tones, but Ipanema Sunset is great for those of you who have cooler/paler undertones or want more of a peachy/champagne glow to the skin.


The Sol de Janeiro Glow Oils do not come with a pump, so I did have to take care to really wash my hands well after applying it since the bronze is dark on the hands. 


If you're a big fan of the Sol de Janeiro products like me, or want and easy, fragrant way to give your body a special glow Sol de Janeiro Glow Oils Copacabana Bronze is the perfect product to add to your body care collection for summer. P.S. Sol de Janeiro Glow Oils Copacabana Bronze is perfect to use after Sol de Janeiro Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel!  - RLB

Beauty Find - NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm


NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm  
There's more to love from the iconic NARS Orgasm makeup line.  For summer, try a sheer version of the famous pink/peach golden shimmer shade in their NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm .

NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm gives lips a flattering peachy pink shade with a radiant finish.  It also features NARS’s Monoï Hydrating Complex for smooth, supple lips and continuous hydration ( My lips didn't need a touch up for over 5 hours on most days).




I already love the NARS Blush Orgasm  so having a similar sheer wash of color in a lip balm is genius.  NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm Orgasm  has no scent, feels cushiony soft and smooth with no sticky or tacky feel.  It felt slightly moist upon the initial application and then within seconds absorbed and left my lips looking healthy and pretty with the perfect amount of hydration.  


Also Try: NARS Blush Orgasm

Note:  The more pigmented your lips are naturally the lighter this balm will show up on them.  On a darker skin tone like mine, the shade took on more of a caramel shade with a touch of pink and the very fine golden shimmer.



If I wanted a little more color, I would add nude lip pencil on my lips first and then a layer of the NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm .  I also experimented with adding a touch of the  NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm over a nude lipstick for a different look and added hydration.  NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm  will also be my go-to lip shade for a summer day at the beach or outdoors.


With  NARS you can always expect beautiful packaging, and this rose gold case is perfect for all you packaging junkies.  Treat yourself to  NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm this spring. - RLB
