2+1 For Brows by Paula Dorf


2+1 For Brows by Paula Dorf.
When I heard that Brand Backer was offering a special opportunity to try an eye brow product by Paula Dorf, I have to admit I was pretty stoked. In fact, moments after receiving the email, I instantly jumped towards the opportunity. 

For those of you that do not know, the 2+1 For Brows is a special round palette that includes two pigmented shades along with brow wax. Recently, I had the opportunity to try 2+1 For Brows by Paula Dorf. So, what did I think?

PROS

I have tried the brunette and I love how pigmented the color is. A little goes along way. The color pay-off is fantastic.

After wearing this brow product for a few hours, I noticed that it didn't smear nor did it smudge and budge. It is surprisingly long-lasting, especially with a primer and in collaboration with the wax.

This Paula Dorf addition offers an amazing eye brow brush. The Perfect Brow brush itself is slightly angled and is not too thin or thick. It's also very easy to clean and the bristles do not fall out. The handle is not long, but it isn't extremely short. It is still effective when applying the color and the wax. (Use code: BROWBRUSH to receive this brush free with your 2+1 For Brows purchase.)

It is round and very compact, making it great for traveling. It fits right inside of your purse. The brush also fits, as well. If you are into products that you can take anywhere, you will love this one.

Not only is this product fragrance free, it is hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types.
No animals were harmed when this product was created, as Paula Dorf cosmetics does NOT test on animals.

CONS

This product contains an array of ingredients. Some of them include: Dimethicone, Mica, Methyparaben, Titanium Dioxide, Boron Nitride, Trimethysiloxysilicate, Panthenol, and more. If you are allergic or suffer from any skin tribulations from these ingredients, you are not going to be interested in this product. 

This product is not paraben-free. If you are one who embraces the natural and organic concept, I do not believe this product will interest you.

In terms of colors, I believe they should be a little more extensive. The brunette is modestly dark, but is not suitable for those with black or ebony colored hair. The brunette worked great for me. I have medium to dark brown hair and medium/tan skin tone.

If you are on a budget and are looking to spend less than $10, you may not find this product appealing. 

You can purchase Paula Dorf's 2+1 for Brows at Paula Dorf for $26. Would I use this product again? Yes. Would I recommend this product to a friend? Yes. Especially if they are looking for a great eye brow product. For more information about this eye brow product, click here right now.

Best Fall Makeup Tips

It's official, as of September 21, 2014, Fall is here. Now we are in October and Fall is now the season to embrace as it's a mixture of both hot and cold weather. I love everything about Fall. The bright leaves falling from the trees, the smell of pumpkins and spice, and the idea that the holidays are approaching. What is better than that?
 
When it comes to makeup and Fall, is there really something you shouldn't do? Should you wear matte lipstick? Should you wear luminizer? Should you wear mascara on your bottom lashes? Should you limit the amount of lip product you should wear? Should you wear powder foundation? What shouldn't you do?
 
Check out my latest article on Examiner, A Look At The Best Fall Makeup Tips where I give my opinion on what to do during this season and what not to.

Joseph Valo III: ZIRH Face Scrub & ZIRH Face Wash

My amazing man, Joe Valo III took it upon himself to review both ZIRH's Aloe Face Scrub ($20) and ZIRH's Clean Alpha-Hydroxy Face Wash ($15). I thought both of his reviews for these two products were fantastic, which is why I am sharing them with you today.
 
A lot of people assume that men's grooming is non-existent because there are so many skincare brands in the world today, however, it's quite apparent that more men are caring more and more about their skin. Brands such as ZIRH were created for men because men have different skin than women.
 
So, whether you are looking for a gift for your husband, your father, your grandfather, your son, your son-in-law, your nephew, your cousin, or your friend or simply looking to purchase skincare to share, you may want to consider these two ZIRH products.

Victoria's Secret Shopping: Very Sexy Plumeria Pink

 
One thing that I love about Victoria's Secret is the fact that they offer such a diversified selection of bra and panty sets and this one is definitely proof of that. The Plumeria Pink is stunning. It's a bright pink that leans towards hot pink and fuchsia with lilac purple accents. Online it was cute when I first looked at it, however, in person it is absolutely gorgeous. The next time you visit Victoria's Secret, I highly recommend checking out the Very Sexy Push-Up Bra in Plumeria Pink along with the matching panty. You may just decide to pick it up. I know that I did.

Beauty Examiner: Cellu-Cup

As many of you are already aware, I am always discovering quite a few amazingly unique beauty products. The Cellu-Cup is definitely one of them.
 
You apply the sweet orange massage oil before you use the special silicone suction which is the special tool used to get rid of cellulite. As I am working on composing a review for the Cellu-Cup, I have to say it was great talking to Chantal Fairve about it.
 
In fact, a few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to speak with publication director of Cellu-Cup about this amazing body care tool. Read my interview with Chantal Faivre, the publication director of the brand here.
