NYX Proof It! Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer

No one wants their makeup to come off during the day. We buy waterproof eyeliner, waterproof mascara, etc… but what about keeping our eyeshadow on? Sure you use primer to keep it from creasing and looking good, but what if you’re prone to watery eyes?

Whether you’re out in the sun a lot, swimming, or have allergies, you need something to keep your eyeshadow looking good all day. NYX Proof It Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer is something every girl needs in her makeup bag. It’s truly amazing and it’s only $7 🤩

Check out the pictures below. I put the primer on my hand, put on some eyeshadow, then ran water over my hand and rubbed the area. As you can see it didn’t run or smudge.

Here’s what the website says:


Intensify your shadows with our durable and waterproof eyeshadow primer. Smooth on to lids before applying shadows and voila! Your eye makeup will stay in place no matter what the weather without creasing or smudging.

Loreal Infallible Total Coverage Foundation

I’ve been using Loreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation lately to do a review. So I thought why not try another Loreal foundation product.

Compared to the Pro-Matte, the Total Coverage foundation is much thicker. It goes on easily and you can see the coverage is much better. This product has a natural finish instead of matte.

I have malasma also known as the “mask of pregnancy.” Basically I have dark splotchy places on my face. Unfortunately when I had my baby it didn’t go away. I hate the way it looks. I thought I’d do a before and after picture of my forehead so you can see exactly what the coverage looks like.

As you can see it covers well, but you can still see some of the malasma. I think it helps to use a sponge to blend the product.

This is what the website says:

Up To 24HR Total Cover Foundation. Weightless Feel. The New Pro Look of Longwear.

Get up to 24 hours of full coverage with a lightweight feel and a natural finish. Infallible Total Cover Foundation blends instantly to cover dark spots, blemishes, scars, and hyperpigmentation for a flawless complexion. The full coverage foundation is formulated with highload pigments for total coverage and is enriched with Alliagel. The formula glides on and feels fresh all day. It will create the perfect canvas for flawless makeup application.

For best results, buff into skin with Infallible Blend Artist.

Loreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation

I love Loreal’s Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation! It gives you a matte finish which is great for my oily skin. It doesn’t seem to dry my face out too much which can happen with some matte foundations. The coverage is medium, but it is buildable. There is a decent color selection. It comes in 22 shades.

It’s only $12.99 and you can find it at most local drug stores, Walmart and Target.

Here’s what the website says:

Up to 24hr matte without the flat. Air-light texture, Demi-matte finish.

Achieve a matte finish that won’t fall flat with this air-light, longwearing liquid formula. Lightweight and creamy, foundation goes on smooth with a demi-matte finish that lasts up to 24 hours—hiding imperfections for a smooth, clear complexion.

To apply, use fingers or your favorite makeup brush.




One of the items in my last Birchbox was Marcelle City Anti-pollution Foaming Cleanser. I’ve tried it several times, both in the morning and at night.

It definitely foams well when you apply it👍. I have been using it with my Foreo. I haven’t had any issues with brakeouts while using this product👍. It claims to deep clean without drying out your skin. I always use moisturizer after cleaning and using toner. I do think my skin has been a bit dryer in some areas. 👎The price for a full size bottle (5 Oz) is $14.95. 😃


This City anti-pollution skin care line protects against environmental stressors and revives your complexion.

  • Deeply and gently cleanses your skin without drying it out
  • – Provides an anti-adhesion effect against polluting particles
  • – Leaves an exquisite sensation of freshness and cleanliness

Cali White Activated Charcoal and Coconut Toothpaste Review

I’ve been reading a lot about activated charcoal toothpaste lately. So I figured I should try it for myself. There are so many Brands out there, so I randomly chose one to try.

I honestly did not think that it was going to impress me. After only a couple uses I could see a noticeable difference. The picture below shows what my teeth look like after using it for only one week. I forgot to take a before picture, so the picture on the bottom is from a random picture that showed my smile within a few days of starting the charcoal toothpaste.

When you brush your teeth with this obviously your teeth turn black. It’s kind of weird looking at yourself in the mirror with black teeth LOL. They recommend that you brush your teeth for 2 minutes before rinsing. I decided I was just going to brush the teeth in the very front with this for the full two minutes. Before I use the charcoal toothpaste I use my regular toothpaste on all of my teeth. I have only been using the charcoal toothpaste once per day. One of the best things about this toothpaste is that it does not make your teeth or gums sensitive at all. I have used white strips in the past and they make my teeth very sensitive, plus you have to leave them on for an hour usually. The charcoal toothpaste is much more convenient.

The Cali White activated charcoal toothpaste I ordered came from amazon.com. it was only around $10 when I ordered it, but last time I looked it was around $40!!! I have no idea why the price jumped up so much, but it does have extremely good ratings on Amazon. You can get it directly from their website for around $10 here.

What are your thoughts on activated charcoal toothpaste? Did it work for you?

Bio Ionic 10x Ultralight Speed Hair Dryer Review

This is the best hair dryer I have ever owned. I feel like it was a great investment because it dries my hair approximately 30% faster than my last hair dryer. It normally takes me 12 to 15 minutes to dry my hair. With this Bio Ionic hair dryer I can dry my hair in around 8 minutes. I have long very thick hair, and a lot of hair dryers in the past have taken me 20 minutes to dry my hair. Another great feature is that it does come with a 10-year warranty, and it is extremely quiet for a hair dryer.

It is a bit on the pricey side ($300-$350) but I found a few websites that offered it with some great deals. The best place I found to order this is jet.com it is listed on their website for around $200 and shipping is free. You can find it here.

The only downside I could find to this was that it did not come with a diffuser. I did have one however that would fit the end of this dryer that I could use. I definitely think it’s worth $200 if you value your time!
