Here are some reviews for you, I personally love NYX products…some need improvement but they are well worth the price.


NYX Rouge Cream Blush (Natural)- I am so in love with NYX products.  They are so affordable and of very good quality. The blush is soft, creamy, and it stays all day…the color is so beautiful and looks super natural.  Thumbs up for this one  🙂

NYX Jumbo eye pencil in MILK–  This pencil is awesome… it’s creamy, easy to apply , and it is perfect  to make your eye-shadow look brighter by applying it to the lid prior to applying the eye-shadow. Thumbs Up

NYX Concealer Jar- I love NYX but I was not happy with the shades of the concealers:( The product itself is great, it’s full coverage, very creamy and super easy to apply and to blend…To get my shade I have to mix with another NYX shade ….over all it’s a good product…. ThumbsUP


NYX Matte Lipstick -Hippie Chic- In love with the shade of the lipstick, the only problem is that it wears off too  fast… I really would love a 24hr lipstick that  lasts from NYX. Thumbs Half Way UP.

NYX Stay Matte but not Flat-Foundation:  😦 (sad face)…I was expecting more from this foundation,  Besides the fact that Cherry Culture sent me the wrong shade, the foundation is not very natural looking, the finish is not smooth and it does not make the skin smooth…feels heavy and like I have tons of makeup on …  Thumbs Down

NYX HD FOUNDATION-  I don’t love the foundation but I like it.  The skin stays smooth and flawless with the right amount of shine. I recommend and would buy it again.. Thumbs Half Way Up .

NYX LIPSTICKS in Harmonica, Sky Pink, and Sash- I like these lipsticks, the colors are very beautiful and sweet, the only negative thing I would have to say, is that, it has got some shimmer in it. When I ordered,  it did not seem to have a shimmer it looked matte… Matte Lipstick is my favorite…but  overall Thumbs Up.

NOTE:  The purpose of these reviews is to help the customer identify what they might find suitable for themselves, and for the cosmetic companies to improve their products in order to create a better customer experience and satisfaction. I encourage all my readers to try the products for themselves, because everyone is different and reacts differently to  products.  Reviews are about customer experience and constructive criticism.

Thank you for reading!




Top five very worst skin care mistakes

Check out this article I found, you might find it interesting. Reference and credit to the original post and author is down below.

By Lee Ann Buttery, Mario Badescu Skin Care

It’s amazing what thoughtful and consistent skin care can do for your appearance. On the flipside, innocent mistakes and a touch of carelessness can easily cause complexion chaos.

Want to be sure you’re getting it right? Check out the top five very worst skin care mistakes!

1. Picking or Touching Your Face: We’ve all been guilty of this one. You see a pesky blemish and attempt to extract it by popping or squeezing it. This is a huge no-no and can only make matters worse. The best thing to do is to leave it alone and let nature takes its course.

RELATED Popular Beauty Myths, Debunked!

However, if you absolutely cannot stand looking at it or you have a major event to attend and need it gone pronto, apply a spot treatment (preferably one that contains salicylic acid) with a cotton swab or a clean finger and leave it alone. Picking or squeezing pimples can result in scarring and often causes more acne.

In general, try not to touch your face at all unless you are certain your hands are clean. It’s easy to make this mistake unintentionally—resting your chin on your hand or rubbing your eyes. This touching may seem harmless, but the oils and germs from your hands can cause a breakout.

2. Washing Your Face with Bar Soap: Bar soaps are formulated for the body, not the face. The ingredients in bar soap are too harsh and can strip the skin of its natural oils, disrupting the protective moisture barrier and leaving the skin severely dehydrated. Moreover, their use can leave a filmy residue. Instead, stick with a gentle facial cleanser that contains nourishing and soothing ingredients that promote the health of your skin rather than compromise it.

3. Skimping on the Sunscreen: Whether you’re sunbathing in the tropics of Belize or skiing on the slopes of the Colorado Mountains, it is imperative to wear sunscreen all year round, rain or shine, winter or summer. Even on the most gray, gloomy, overcast days, the sun’s rays are still peeking through the clouds. Sun exposure is one of the top causes of premature aging. Even when you’re indoors or inside of a vehicle, solar rays can penetrate through windows. Therefore, make sure to wear a broad spectrum sunscreen with at least a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15.

4. Neglecting to Wash Your Face: If you simply can’t be bothered or you feel legitimately exhausted, the easier (albeit wrong) thing to do is to hit the sack and call it a night. Your skin will suffer the consequences: clogged pores from a combination of old makeup, dead skin cell buildup and possibly an emerging pimple. Not a pretty picture. So the next time you really, really don’t feel like washing your face at night, gather up every ounce of strength you have and do it. Your skin will thank you!

5. Tanning: If you’re not blessed with enviably bronzed skin like Jennifer Lopez, it doesn’t mean you should bake your face and body to achieve a glow. On the bright side, you have two alternatives: opt for a safe sunless tanner or embrace your equally beautiful alabaster complexion. The sun’s cruel rays can cause premature wrinkling, brown spots and worst of all, skin cancer.

Hair Mask with Banana an Avocado

Banana and Avocado Mask

Banana & Avocado Deep Conditioning Treatment for Dry Hair

Here is the very first and awesome recipe. This will restore your super over dried hair :)


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp of wheatgerm oil (I said to Stephanie, “Wheatgerm oil? Who has wheatgerm oil hanging around the house?” and she looked at me as if was the only person she knew who doesn’t use wheatgerm oil on a regular basis). You can substitute olive oil if you, like me, don’t have wheatgerm oil or time to run to your health food store for some.
  • A few drops of essential oils, such as lavender, rose, sweet orange, or jasmine. Stephanie uses essential oils to mask the smell of the wheatgerm oil.


Mash all of the ingredients in a bowl or better yet, use a blender.Shampoo hair, comb it out and towel-dry.Apply mask to hair, including the scalp if you want. Or you can just deep condition the ends.

Put hair in a shower cap or wrap it in Saran Wrap and let it sit for about 15 minutes, longer if you prefer.

Rinse mask out in the shower. Place a heavy duty paper towel over the drain to catch the avocado and banana bits.

Lifting Eye Cream

I have to say that I was very impressed with the product. I never heard of it before and  I don’t usually get any eye care products mostly because I don’t feel the need to use them.  As courtesy of #OWNiFabbo, I received a sample of the eye lifting cream.

Purpose of the product is to :

  1. Boost collagen for FIRMER and fuller- looking skin 
  2. Enhance cell turnover for a more EVEN SKIN TONE
  3. Improve skin’s moisture barrier for softer and SMOOTHER skin.

According to OWN statistics in an 8 week period, after using the eye lifting cream  20% of users had firmer skin, 31% of users had an evenness in skin tone  and 33% of people had improvement in skin softness.  In an 12 Week Period 29% saw an improvement in skin firmness, 41 % saw an improvement in evenness of the skin tone, and 50% saw a major improvement in skin softness.

My Experience with the Lifting Eye Cream

I really loved the product, I have used it for about a week, I am still using it because I really believe in what it does.

Within the first few days I noticed that my skin tone was more even around the eyes, and it was also much, much softer. However, in a weeks time I did not see any improvement in firmness.  But, keep in mind that the product results are usually in full effect after 8 weeks, so I am sure if I use it for 7 more weeks I will see a huge improvement in skin firmness.

I am so glad I came across this product,  and I highly recommend it to all my readers. I will never recommend something I do not believe in.
