Rimmel sent me their Magnif’Eyes Shadow Palette to review for you. When I first swatched the colors on my arm, I was concerned about the color payoff. However, once I started doing some eye looks with it, I really loved it. I’ve actually been wearing a look from this palette every day for like a month! It’s my go-to palette now! :O
I found that the colors in the Rimmel Magnif’Eyes Palette blend really well. I was able to do some of my favorite eye looks that I normally do with a high-end palette with similar shades.
I would 100% without a doubt recommend this palette. Each color is totally wearable and there are countless looks you could create with the colors. If you follow me on Instagram, pretty much any selfie posted in the last month has been with this palette.
Let me know what you think of this palette in the comments!
I have a tutorial video for you today! :O I have recently become obsessed with Wonder Woman. Yes, I know it’s super trendy right now but I couldn’t help myself. I went and saw the movie on opening weekend and fell in love. IN LOVE. So now I’m reading all the comics, watching the old TV show, and reading comics about the comics.
Obviously, I had to do some Wonder Woman nail art!
It’s a little-known fact that yellow and orange are my least favorite colors. And yet….and yet….I really love today’s Hawaiian nail art. I started with two coats of Zoya Sawyer (from the Wanderlust collection), I used It Girl Pomelo, and a design from an It Girl stamping plate.
Something about this mani is really working for me. I hope you like it, too!
Today I’m going to show you the Zoya Wanderlust collection. This is a collection of 12 polishes with creme and shimmer finishes. While the colors in this collection are pretty (except for the greens…) you really don’t need to buy all 12. There are a lot of very, very similar colors in this collection. It’s basically a collection of mostly pink with a couple greens thrown in. Sorry, Zoya! This isn’t your best work. L\
Zoya Scout (I seriously hate this color. The formula was nice, but I can’t get over how much I hate this green.)
Zoya River. This is probably the standout in the collection. It’s a gorgeous shimmery blue that isn’t like any of the other colors in the collection!
Zoya Arbor…not as bad as Scout but definitely not a cute look for me.
Byrdie is probably my favorite besides River, despite the stupid name. (Oh man. I’m being really hard on Zoya today!)
I bet you thought I wasn’t going to post today…didn’t you?! Didn’t you?! Sheesh. Way to have faith in me. Oh wait. I totally ghosted you for like a whole month or something. No wonder you thought I was going to do it again! Well, no such luck. I’m here again and reporting for duty. (hehehehe. Doody.)
I lost a half pound this week so now I’m officially back at where I was when I ghosted you. Does that make me no longer a ghost???
This week I’m re-committed to getting my step count on FitBit up toward 10,000. I’ve been around 6-7,000 the past few weeks but getting to 10,000 is when I really start to notice a difference in how I feel.
I cooked dinner last night for the first time in….forever! I loathe cooking. And not in a silly, “hey I don’t like cooking” kind of way but in a physical, gut-wrenching, OMG I fffffing hate this kind of way. But, I managed to chop an onion without dying. Although, I did cry a little.
Apparently, we’re cooking again tonight. And by “we” I obviously mean ME because while I love my hubby very much….his kitchen skills are not so great. I know he doesn’t read my blog, but even if he did, this is something I’d totally say to his face, anyway. :)
Here’s an example of his cooking skill level…
He was making himself a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Probably the easiest thing to “cook” on the face of the planet. He finished up, served himself a bowl and asked me why it was so watery. When I asked how much milk he put in, he said, “I’m supposed to measure things like that?” So, needless to say, if I don’t want to die of starvation or food poisoning, I take on the traditional gender role of making the food!
Pixi sent me their Glow Getters trio to review for you. This set comes with the Glow Mud Cleanser, Glow Tonic, and Overnight Glow Serum.
The Pixi Mud Cleanser definitely does an excellent job at cleaning my face. It has little scratchy particles in it that exfoliate and help remove makeup. My skin felt clean and fresh after washing with this cleanser.
The Glow Tonic To-Go comes on pre-soaked cotton pads. This step is like a toner. Honestly, I’m not totally sure exactly what it’s doing but I can tell you that it feels a bit tingly. Not in a bad way. More like in an acne medication sort of way. This tonic is a little strong for my sensitive skin so I only use it 2-3 times a week and not every day.
The Pixi Glow serum is a thickish, clear liquid. It feels very soothing on my skin. I still use my moisturizer after this because I have such dry skin. This refreshes my skin after the two previous steps and rehydrates it.
This is a fun little trio and since I’ve been blogging for Pixi, I’ve been really impressed with their skincare offerings. I know I’ve seen them in Target and I’m sure it’s available online. In fact, let me do you a #lazybetty and just drop my Amazon referral link here. It’s all set to go pre-searched for these products. You. Are. Welcome. ;) http://amzn.to/2r5gARD
On an unrelated note, in my latest Instagram video, I explain Three Ways You Can Get A FREE LIPSENSE STARTER KIT. So before you go, make sure to watch this short video!
Today’s featured product is the SeneGence Self-Bronzing Coconut Milk! I secretly identify as a vampire which means that I do not like the sun. I like gray, cloudy days! Some people think I’m crazy, but all I’m going say is that the rain doesn’t burn my skin, give me a headache, or give me a stomachache!
That being said, I also don’t want to stand against a white wall and completely blend in. I may be a vampire, but I’m a vain vampire. (Order yours here.)
This is where SeneGence Self-Bronzing Coconut Milk comes in. This spray is amazing at adding 2-3 shades of color to your natural skin tone. The best part is that it doesn’t turn orange! I’ve tried a ton of bronzers and with how pasty white my skin is, a lot of them make me look like I should be starring in some sort of “Housewives” show. Or, based on the skin tone, they make me look like *I* could be president someday.
NOT the SeneGence Self-Bronzing Coconut Milk! It warms up the look of my skin nicely and it also fades nicely! This coconut milk is the perfect addition to the #lazybetty lifestyle. No need to go fake bake to get that fun, healthy tan!
Hi. So this is awkward. It’s been a while since I posted a Weigh-In Wednesday update. As a general rule, when someone ghosts about their weight loss, it’s not a good sign. I am no exception! I fell off the wagon! :O Yes, yes. I know it’s so soon! There are lots of factors. Some of them are excuses and some of them are reasons.
I’m not sure how much to really say in this post. I don’t know how much of my ‘inner workings’ I want to be public, on the internet. Plus, my mom reads these posts. LOL. (And this is the ONLY post topic she reads on mine. Hi, mom! Love you!)
Since my last post, I have gained a 1/2 pound. Not super bad, but definitely not good, either!
I have some added stress in my life that is making this whole “self-improvement” thing hard. It’s nothing out of the usual – work stuff, life stuff, girly stuff. I think right now, the major contributing factor of my struggle is my depression. I don’t think I’ve ever talked about it on my blog before…so…surprise! I’m medicated daily! LOL.
What this means is there are some days where just doing the basic routine is difficult. To try and explain what it feels like…it literally feels like my veins have solid lead in them. It’s this bizarre feeling of being weighed down…but there is nothing there. Nothing happened. Nothing is wrong. My body just literally is feeling the weight of its own world. Have you ever been under a weighted blanket? Or walked around with ankle weights on? It’s kinda like that. You can move but it’s so much harder.
Not surprisingly, trying to tell yourself to ‘snap out of it’ does not work. I read a super analogy the other day. When someone needs prescription glasses, nobody tells them to just ‘try harder’ or ‘snap out of it’ or ask them ‘what’s wrong? Did something happen?’ No. They just need glasses to experience the world like the average person. That’s a great analogy for mental health problems. I need Prozac to help me experience the world in a more normal way. It just doesn’t seem to work every day. :\
So there you have it. The real secret to my struggles. Fair warning: If anyone says that exercise cures depression, I will go fucking postal. Even when I was walking 5 miles per day, I still needed Prozac. (That would be the 2012 picture in the collage.) I’m aware of the benefits of exercise. K. Thanks!
Today’s mani reminds me of the 90’s. Which is perfect because a lot of 90’s stuff is apparently coming back in style! What’s old is new again…
This mani starts with two coats of China Glaze Sultry Solstice which was sent to me as a press sample from the Summer Reign collection. I used It Girl Pomelo which is a full-coverage yellow stamping polish! :O The design is from the new It Girl Plate IG117
Come hang out with me in my VIP group! I post things in there that I don’t post anywhere else! :) Including sometimes inappropriate things. :P
The information in this post is only for bloggers and micro-bloggers (eg IG, FB, or Twitter only).
Also, this is only for people who want to start or continue earning money on their blogs.
I’ve been blogging for about 5 years now and I’ve always been looking for ways to monetize my blog. Through affiliate links, Adsense, sponsored posts, etc. So far, I’ve made what my mom calls “drinking money.” A couple hundred bucks a month – just enough to buy a couple drinks every weekend. :)
Since I started selling SeneGence in October, things have changed drastically. We’re not allowed to share numbers because the company doesn’t want anything to be viewed as an income guarantee. (Totally understandable.) So let’s just say…it’s definitely more than drinking money. Or, I can drink a shitload more now. LOL.
The great thing about SeneGence is the products stand out as remarkable among other similar companies. I did Mary Kay many eons ago and the products are good, but they’re not amazing. Not like LipSense is.
Some weeks, it feels like I’m selling LipSense left and right! Random people contact me online. The Starbucks Barista asks for my website. Coworkers seek me out. It’s insane!
The even better part is that SeneGence barely has a fraction of the distributors that other direct sales companies have. There is a ton of room in the market for growth.
Fastest growing direct sales company for the last few years. (Despite outdated packaging and websites. The product is just that good.)
Benefits of joining my team:
I’m lazy. LOL. No really, I promise that’s a benefit. I find the *easiest* way to get things done. I share my marketing ideas and tips with my team.
I have team incentives to help your business succeed.
I do NOT condone being a slimey salesperson. Gross, tacky people have no place on my team. I will help you make sales without being spammy and without pissing off your friends and family.
We have the best commission structure in the business. There are also company-wide incentives like free trips (this year it’s to Disneyworld!!), free cars, free product, and more. The original founder of the company is still running the business which means her vision of supporting women still shines throughout the company.
Bonus for your spouse and kids and pets:
Since LipSense is transfer-proof, you can kiss them (or you know…whatever ;) )Without getting lipstick all over them! This is my husband’s favorite part of the business. :)
The nuts and bolts:
The sign-up fee is $55. This will include all your training materials from corporate. The wholesale discount is 20-50%, depending on the size of your order. Worried about building an inventory? Don’t worry – I already have a training video for that. :)
There are NO order minimums so if you’re having a tight month, you don’t need to put in a big order to stay ‘active.’
There are NO sales quotas. Lots of women start slowly. You’re welcome to go balls to the wall right away, but you’re also welcome to dip your toe in and see how the water is.
SO ARE YOU READY?
Emil me at bettysbeautybombs at gmail dot com and I’ll get you started or answer any questions you might still have.
