September’s Beauty and Fashion Product Roundup 2017

I get products sent to me daily to try out. I unfortunately don’t have time to do a post for each item that I get to review. So I want to make sure these items get seen and learned about. The only other solution I could see to do is to do a September’s Beauty and Fashion Product Roundup 2017 on the products I like and want my readers to know about. I hope you enjoy these as much as I and my other reviewers did.

Achieve sheer, buildable coverage that’s natural looking and feather light;Get pro results in less time than it takes to apply traditional makeup; Airpod makeup is dermatologist recommended, oil free, and hypoallergenic.

What are circle lenses?

Circle lenses are special extra-wide contact lenses that make eyes appear larger when worn. The popularity of circle lenses has been growing with celebrities such as Lady Gaga spotted wearing circle lenses in the “Bad Romance” music video. Thousands of people are switching to circle lenses because there are more styles and colors to choose from, they make eyes your eyes appear larger and they are much more affordable than conventional contact lenses.

The difference between normal contact lenses and circle lenses

The main reason why normal contact lenses appear smaller than circle lenses when worn is because the tint on normal lenses only cover the iris of the eye, while circle lenses have an extra-wide tint around the outer rim of the lens larger than the iris of the eye (this area is transparent on normal contact lenses).

Choosing the right color for your eyes

For a bold, dramatic and confident look, you may want to choose a color everyone notices immediately. For instance:
– You should match skin, hair or natural eye colors that have blue-red undertones, with warmer colors
such as brown.
– You should choose brighter colors if you have dark-toned skin.
– You should choose colors that stand out from your makeup.
– You should choose colors such as violet, green or blue if you have a natural brown eye color.

For a more conservative, natural look, you probably want to choose an eye color that creates a subtle change in your look, so people can tell there is a difference, but not know why. For instance:

– You should choose warmer colors such as hazel to match with your makeup or natural eye color, such as brown.
– If your natural eye color is blue, you might want to use grey or green contact lenses to change the color of your eyes.
– A great way to create a subtle change in eye color is using enhancement tints. Enhancement tints define the edges of your iris but will not change your eye color completely.

How to wear circle lenses:
1. Place the lens on your index finger.
2. Using the middle finger of your other hand, pull your lower eyelid down.
3. Use your middle finger of the opposite hand to pull your upper eyelid up.
4. Move the lens towards your eye calmly and place the lens in your eye with the bottom of the lens touching the eye before the top part of the lens.

Advanced h. A. Liposome serum saturates the skin to hydrate and rejuvenate with the anti-aging effects of hyaluronic acid along with a host of antioxidants like fat-soluble vitamin c and vitamin e all in a time-release, stable, liposome form. Tangerine oil is added for the slightest touch of refreshing citrus scent to enhance the senses advanced h. A. Liposome serum is the latest in skin health technology. Benefits: hyaluronic acid can carry several times its weight in water more than most other natural substances. It is found everywhere in the body where lubrication and moisture is essential, bathing our cells. Water is very attracted to this special anti-aging molecule so that it literally attracts water from the air to the skin, hydrating it. Hyaluronic acid has also been shown to be involved in increasing skin turnover, bringing fresh skin cells to the surface sooner to reveal healthy youthful skin. Utilizes micro-sphere liposome technology to deliver time-released ingredients deep into the skin where fat-soluble vitamin c boosts the natural production and maintenance of collagen. Vitamin e (as dl-alpha tocopheryl acetate) also contributes to increasing moisture in the skin leading to more supple skin phospholipids provide essential polyunsaturated fatty acids which contribute to activation of cellular metabolism. The most important is linoleic acid, which has been shown to reduce transdermal moisture loss, regulate function of the sebaceous glands, and increase respiratory activity of the skin. Firms skin and reduces fine facial lines. Improves skin moisture and hydration making skin instantly softer and gradually more supple. Enhances skin smoothness and reduces the appearance of fine surface lines. Augments skin firmness and elasticity. Provides superior skin soothing properties. Directions:once or twice daily, gently smooth a few drops of advanced h. A. Liposome serum on clean, dry skin over face and neck before moisturizers. Avoid eye contact.

Bo-Po Nail Polish #bopofun

Bo Po Worx Toys is re-launching the original Brush It On and Peel It Off nail polish with improved formula & vibrant colors
We are bringing back the memories, vibrancy, smells, smiles, and the fun of brushing on and peeling off of Bo-Po nail polish that was originally made popular in the 80s by Tinkerbell Play Cosmetics.  Many popular toys of the 80s might have left the toy shelves off and over the years but they never left the hearts and memories of those that played with them.  Now, the little girls who grew up with these toys are now parents and can create new memories with their kids of painting their nails, blowing gently on the fingertips to dry them, and then peeling it off to start again with the new and improved Bo-Po nail polish.
 back of package
Reformulated to meet today's stringent safest standards, Bo-Po nail plush brushes on and peels off in seconds to start fresh again and again.  Available in 10 vibrant colors to match every mood and style, the new Bo-Po features a sweet vanilla smell and a spill-proof bottle which is perfect for little hands playing beauty shop, pop star, or dressing up for a special outing.  And the best part of Bo-Po is that it is non-toxic without harsh smelling chemicals, and kids can simply peel off the polish without the need of any acetone which can damage nails.
With the new Bo-Po line, kids can experience fun, spontaneity and amazement of brushing on and peeling off.

Bo Po in use My niece applied the pink Bo-Po nail polish herself and she is 7. The polish dried fairly quickly. When it came to peeling the Bo-Po polish off, the polish came off in chunks rather than one big chunk. There was polish residue left behind on the toes that came off in the bath. We even let the polish dry longer to see if we could it to peel off in one big piece but it kept coming off in pieces. My niece likes being able to do the Bo-Po polish herself. With that being said I would buy more of the Bo-Po polish as I think this is a great learning tool and a confidence builder.

Del Sol: Color Changing Necklace & Nail Polish

Del Sol logoDel Sol products change color in the sun. They're one color outside in the sunshine and then return to their original color back inside. Products include: T-shirts, nail polish, flip-flops, hair clips, shorts, hats, plush toys, jewelry, watches, sunglasses and more.

NecklaceThe Flower Shell w/ Pearls necklace is white when worn inside and turns pink when out in the sun. Now that winter is almost upon me here in Michigan, this necklace will look great with the white snow. I liked wearing this color changing necklace this fall. Everyone who saw how the necklace change thought it was neat. I like the Flower Shell with Pearls necklace because its very pretty and goes with almost anything.

polishI really like the color of the color-change nail polish Last Dance. The polish goes from a pink without sun light to a deep purple in high sun light. Even with my nails having a design on them the polish looked and worked great. I want to get more of these color changing polishes for the summer.
