Valentine’s Day Beauty Must Have’s {Review}

sample

I love Valentine’s Day.  I always have, even when I celebrated it more like “Single Awareness Day” I loved it.  Flowers, chocolates, candy, and another special day to tell those you love how much you appreciate and love them?! Yes. Please.  Since I am still a big huge baby/helicopter mom, and can’t stand to leave Halli with a babysitter yet,  my husband and I are going to have a romantic night in.  But just because date night is at home doesn’t mean I will be wearing my go to yoga pants.  I still am dressed up and I want to feel extra beautiful for the occasion.

I’m excited to tell you about some great beauty products I recently got to test out.  They will be perfect to help you finish off your Valentine’s Day look.

Valentine's Day Beauty Must Have's

First up we have Skin & Co. Truffle Therapy Body Milk it retails for $35 at skinandcoroma.com. Created to nourish dry skin, this decadent moisturizer is rich in antioxidants, vitamins and essential amino acids.

Valentine's Day Beauty Must Have's

This stuff smells amazing!!!  I have been putting it on right after I shower and my skin sucks up the moisture.  After I have shaved my legs and I use this lotion my legs feel extra silky smooth.  It isn’t overly greasy or heavy.  It also rubs in quickly. I’m sure all the extra antioxidants, vitamins and essential amino acids also do wonders for my skin.

KMS California HAIRPLAY playable texture retails for $19.99 at salons nationwide. It lets you build texture on the go and re-work your style when you want – without the sticky finish. The more you spray into your hair, the more texture you add. Just use your fingers, brush, or hot tools to re-work any style any time.

20140211_113929I was most excited to try out this product.   I am a sucker for all beauty products but especially hair products.  I have a ton of really thick, long hair.  It can get out of control and it’s hard to hold a style.  Especially if the Texas humidity is working against me.  I sprayed this on when my hair was a little damp and then blow dried it.  I got a really good amount of body but it also smoothed out my crazy fly away’s.  I like that it doesn’t leave my hair feeling dirty at all and helps my hair hold in my styling.  My curls stay in so much better and I need a lot less hair spray.  I will definitely be hunting more of this down when it runs out!

Soap & Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Gloss  retails for $16 at Sephora.com. A single slick can fool your lips into looking and feeling fuller. Sexy Mother Pucker activates on contact. It’s likely you’ll notice a bit of a buzz (and likely, create one).

So I have mixed emotions about this lip gloss.  I love that it worked with my natural lip color and gave me a great shine.  I did not like how sticky it was, but at the same time I think the stickiness made it last longer.  Also when they say that it could cause a “buzz” on your lips, they aren’t kidding.  My lips almost immediately felt like they were “buzzing.”  Which was kind of cool at first but since the buzzing did zero to plump up my lips it just got annoying.  Overall I would still use this because I liked how my lips looked with it on.  Maybe if I put another light slicker gloss over the top the buzz and stickiness wouldn’t be so obnoxious.

Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara retails for $8.99 at drugstores nationwide. The unique molded plastic brush grabs every lash for complete definition, separation, and absolutely no clumps.

Rimmel CollageI am a hard critique when it comes to mascara, but I may have a new mascara to add to my make up bag.  This is such a great BLACK mascara.  I find some mascaras to be more gray, or black brown, but this was a very true black.  It also applied evenly without clumping and did a great job making my lashes look longer.  It is a very wet mascara though.  So if you try it out make sure you do not bump those lashes or you will have mascara everywhere you  don’t want it.  It also doesn’t flake at all and stays well all day.  I really love this mascara and will be buying it again.

Whether you are going out, staying in, or celebrating “Single Awareness Day,” I hope y’all get dressed up and feel extra gorgeous.  Have a fabulous Valentine’s Day!

  1. I absolutely have to use mascara but my eyes are so sensitive I have to be careful what I use. Do you have any issues with allergies and if so, how did this work for you?

  2. I need some of that hairplay. I can’t ever get my hair to do anything but fall and mushroom out!

  3. Tonya says:

    I’m a fan of BLACK mascara too and I’m always so picky when it comes to selecting it.

  4. LyndaS says:

    Sometimes it is nice to dress up….just because. We never really left our kids with babysitters. We always took, and still do, them with us.

  5. Ooh, what luxurious products! I really want to try that hairspray. I love plumping lip glosses so I would be curious to try that one too! LOL forever at the name!!!

  6. That lotion sounds really nice!

  7. I need to pick up that mascara! I love Rimmel’s stuff, I swear by their eyeliner, too.

  8. I love makeup. Sounds like lots of great brands!

  9. DawnC says:

    That lip gloss really has me intrigued.

  10. I never use anything but black mascara! I use to do eyeliner, but I haven’t in such long time just some eye shadow. I always use some spray on my bangs or the front of my hair . I’ve never tried this brand, but there’s a first time for everything as they say!

  11. Donna says:

    The one makeup product I HAVE to have is mascara! I won’t go out of my house without it on. 🙂

  12. I’m always looking for ways to add texture to my hair. I’ll have to check out Hair Play – I like that it doesn’t leave a dirty feeling behind.
