BRAND new Garnier Fructis -Blow Dry Perfection

So this product is so new i cannot even find it in stores as of yet!! But as soon as do im going to try it!! it retails about $12.99 and is suppose to last up to 7 washes!

So what does it do ??? Well its a smoothing kit! It is suppose to tame frizz and make your hair smooth and shiny.
Two easy steps give you frizz-resistant, silky-smooth hair that's easier and faster to blow dry.
Step 1: 20-Min Smooth-It Serum is formulated with a protein building block, found naturally in hair, to smooth and tame unmanageable hair. Perfect - Step 2: Heat-Activated Perfect-It Cream, with natural rice oil, helps seal in lasting smoothness and conditioning, and helps create a weightless, humidity-resistant barrier to frizz. Style - Experience Smooth Perfection: Blow dry or flat iron as you normally would to reveal sleek, shiny, more manageable hair.

As soon as i can find it i will let you know how it works.

Is this something you would also try???

Cool BEAUTY APPS for your iPHONE check them out!

So i am sure most of you have jumped on the band wagon and own an iPHONE.Im patiently waiting until the new iPHONE 4 comes out at the end of the month!! Sooo excited.

So check out this super rad beauty App

Ask iStylist first -you could literally be on your way to the salon when you realize that you don't know what kind of new style or hair color you want well no worries ladies just  download, iStylist, for $2.00 which is a small price to pay so you dont get a terrible cut that doesnt fit your face and a color that washes out your complexion.
So you can see if that Sarah Jessica parker cut really looks good before you spend good money getting it heehe

 Here is my FAV FREE APP!! Cosmetifque-
Cosmetifique is a searchable database of over 5,000 ingredients in the International Nomenclature for Cosmetic Ingredients format, the official naming convention for cosmetic ingredients. You simply type in the ingredient of choice and the search results show up as red, orange or green to indicate whether the ingredient is great, good, or bad. I love this idea! 

Another SUPER COOL FREE app is  iOPI-It helps you choose a cool nail color!!
You can browse and search over 200 OPI Nail Lacquer shades right from your iPhone or iPod Touch. You can even virtually try on colors by customizing the screen to match your skin tone. The feature is supposed to more closely represent how any given nail color will look on you. This ability to customize the app to your tastes is certainly an appealing feature, but this kind of “try before you buy” approach is limited by the companies ability to accurately capture YOUR individual skin tone.

 Now i also came across this one which im sorry but i think is a waste of $3.00 hahaha who thinks of these things !
Vanity Iphone app-well this one rates your looks on  scale of one to ten! Not sure how accurate it is,and everyones idea of beauty is totally different!

Do you have any cool beauty apps that i would love to know about ?? Or any cool Apps in general i should have on my new iphone??

Do you plump your lips??? Today im reviewing my fav LIP PLUMPERS:)

So we all want big sultry ,pouty lips like Angelina Jolie,but we don't want injectables to achieve them.So i want to review some of the best ones out there on all different price levels.

First one i like and my best friend also adores is -

Soap Glory- Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Gloss


This one really TINGLES and for only about $9.99 at shoppers drugmart ,its sooo worth it!I love love love the old school style packaging too ,its super cute!This one has a chocolate taste that cannot be beat!I find it does an alright job of plumping ,not the best ever ,but for the price its great.It also contains VITAMIN A and E which is a bonus which will penetrate your lips to moisturise and smooth them while repairing any dryness and chapness you might currently have and when working together both Vitamins help to rehydrate your lips.

Another one i always have in my purse is  BUXOM LIPS from BARE ESCENTUALS

This can be purchased at Sephora for $18.00 It also gives your lips that tingle sensation.and i feel i do see a difference in how plump they are ,its not sticky at all either!

"Naturally creates the look of fuller, more voluptuous lips. This mineral-infused polish imparts a luminous high shine with no sticky or tacky feeling. A deep infusion of antioxidant vitamins A and E help keep lips soft, smooth, and protected, while the tingly and cooling sensation reminds you that your lips are getting an immediate increase in fullness." What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

And last but not least is one that does not tingle,if you cannot handle that try this option-

 Can also be scored at Sephora for $38.00

What it is formulated to do:
Achieve maximum volume and brilliance for a truly stunning pout. This formula contains tiny, dehydrated, marine collagen micro spheres that absorb instantly and seek out the body's natural moisture. As soon as the spheres become rehydrated, they plump and hold onto the moisture they've collected, creating a mild "swelling" of the lip tissue. The result is fuller, smoother, perfectly plumped lips in seconds. Results can last for up to 48 hours. 

I carry this one in my purse too and it has a nice smell and taste to it and is long lasting,i even put it over lipsticks sometimes!

Do you use plumper??Have any favs?

How are you washing your face???? Whats new in cleansers

Have you tried any of the newest cleaners out there?? I love to have a deep clean feeling face with all my makeup removed ,but not over dried.So i want to review one  that i like.Because face it ladies your fingers and a washcloth just are not cutting it anymore.
Currently i am using this one

GARNIER Nutrioniste-SKIN RENEW brush on cleanser-Retails about $9.99 or less at most stores 
So how does this work you ask? Well you simply squeeze some cleanser onto the brush,i add a bit of water and you move it around your face and neck,it cleans much deeper than your fingers ever could and really leaves it feeling much smoother after just one use!

The cleanser contains Vitamin B5, Vitamin E, and Green Leaf Extract.
It also has a really fresh smell to it.And to clean the brush after use just run it under some hot water.It will not collect bacteria.
I feel it works for most skin types,normal to oily and you don't feel dry after use.

Will you give it a try?
