My Thoughts

I love shopping at Target for beauty supplies. Target has a great variety and a lot of popular brands. I shop at Target at least once a week and every time I am there,  I like to visit the beauty section :) My needs are always met when it comes to makeup/creams. I'll be picking up some more of derma e on my next shopping trip!

This eye lift helps smooth away crow's feet. I can feel a little bit of a lift around my eyes almost immediately after application. I can see the results, too! This hydrating cream is white. It did not leave my skin feeling  greasy. Once applied, it sunk right into my skin. I could feel a little bit of stiffness around the eye area. Which tells me that the product is doing what it is meant to do! I love this eye lift. I recommend it!

Try something new this year and #NOTICETHELOTUS at Target – derma e has arrived!

I received free samples in order to create my review. All opinions are my own. Always!

Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit and 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit Review & Giveaway!

Hey Beauties! I know that is has been forever since I've posted a blog post on my beauty blog. I have been contemplating whether or not to combine my two blogs. Well, anyways, today I share with you two AWESOME kits for your brows! Did you know that your eyebrows are one of the most important features on your face? They are also the most neglected. Billion Dollar Brows has created two awesome kits to help you give your brows some much needed love. Achieve perfectly sculpted brows every time with Billion Dollar Brows' Best Sellers Kit or their 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit. All without breaking the bank!

The Best Sellers Kit comes with:

Universal Brow Pencil: Formulated to work beautifully with most skin tones and hair colors. The amazing eyebrow pencil goes smooth and naturally. The Universal Brow Pencil is automatic! It will never need a sharpening and it comes with a spoolie brush on the opposite end. Perfect for blending and achieving a flawless finish.

Brow Duo Pencil: Highlight your brow bone to add beautiful definition and warmth while providing an instant "lift." The highlighter works with every skin tone. Need a touch up on the go? Billion Dollar Brows has added a handy universal concealer on the opposite end of the pencil.

Brow Gel: This clear brow gel locks in your look. Giving your eyebrows a long-lasting, radiant glow. All while keeping them perfectly in place ALL day!

Smudge Brush: This flat, synthetic brush is the ideal mate for applying creamy cosmetics like the Brow Duo Pencil.

The 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit comes with:

Brow Powder in Taupe and a Brow Brush.

My Thoughts

I am not one who normally does her brows when applying makeup. I have to agree that they are neglected. I absolutely LOVE both of these kits. I was a little afraid to use the Best Sellers Kit because of all of the pieces. I have probably only done my brows once or twice (don't laugh at me). But, after I watched the How To video on Billion Dollar Brows' website,  I said to myself, this will be easy as pie. And that it was. I was done doing one of my brows in under two minutes.

I like the 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit for quick touch-ups when I am on the go. The Taupe color matches my brows perfectly. The brush makes it easy to apply and the powder applies easily. The spoolie end brushes my brows out and makes them look perfect! Using the brow pencil versus the brow powder, the pencil color was somewhat darker.

It's nice that the color of the pencil will match basically any hair color. Whether your blond or brown, this pencil will make your brows look great! I recommend both of these kits!
