Jordana Twist and Shine Balm Stain Review! & First Impression!

Hey my loves!

    Oh lord, it has been so freaking long since I've posted anything. I've been one busy MOMMA! <3. Decided to do a comeback post on the review for the Jordana lipbalm stains.  Ok well here they are.

 I got a few different colors. These colors look like they would be so pretty on.:) The first impression I got from them is that they look like the Revlon just bitten balms in the tubular shape. I like that a lot actually. Well I got them at Walgreens I believe for like 2 bucks. Not bad at all. If I say so myself. Ok I got 05 honey love, 01 nude chic, and 06 cranberry crush. Here are the lovely swatches for you, in order going from bottom to top.. :)


So I just tried them for the first time.  Here is the honey love one on...


Nude Chic...

and Cranberry Crush...



They are not bad at all.  My Favorite is definitely the Cranberry Crush! Good Fall color!!


Pros-
  • Has a glossy finish
  • Very moisturizing like it promises
  • Very Budget Friendly
  • There is a twist on the BOTTOM! To twist up more product! Whoop!Whoop!
  • There is a lot of different colors to match every outfit.
Cons-
  • Seems like you have to add layers of product on before you get the color.
  • Has a little glitter in them( I don't tend to lean toward the one with the glitter.. but hey you can barely see it when its on!)
  • The smell seems to be kind of odd, but not overwhelming at all.
Overall thoughts-
  • Would purchase again for SURE! Actually hmmm I might have to take a look at some of the other colors they have too! ;)
  • Definitely something you should pick up if you are at Walgreens and want to try a new lipstain out that is for sure moisturizing for the fall/winter!
Anyways...Honestly I don't know why the line Jordana is not more popular. I mean granted I have tried some of their mascaras that are not the BEST LASH MASCARA..and yeah NO. For all of you that have not tried the Jordana BEST LASH MASCARA! I don't know what your waiting for. READY SET .... GO TO WALGREENS NOW AND GET IT!!!  you like how I use all CAPS?! hahaha. but Yeah I'll have do another post about how amazing that freaking mascara is another day this week! I actually want to start a new series on youtube.. you'll see what I mean SOON!

But yeah guys..I'm going to peace out. But no worries. This GURU is BACK!  I'm going to try and do like 2-3 blog posts a week and the minimum of 1 video up per week. :) Keep Checkin back! Love ya lots!

Hola..

Hey beautiful people!

Praise JESUS they finally got that freakin dude that was one of the Bombers in Boston! That was a horrible day and I wont stop praying for the victims affected and families. Also to the TEXAS people! Oh man this week has been one heck of a week. Did you guys hear about that guy who just crossed the finish line at the Boston Marathon and then the bombs went off behind him and then he drove right past the plant in Texas then minutes later the place exploded.?! Crazy stuff. I probably would of pee'd my pants .Just sayin . I mean come on.. but Thank you so much lord for another day. I am so blessed for everyone and everything in my life.<3


So pretty sure I am addicted to all Milani products now. Thank you to all those other beauty gurus I watch on Youtube. I am obsessed with there color statements lipsticks and their baked blushes. Ahh. Gimmee gimmee! I actually bought all mine at Target when they were having a sale on them ! :) Best time to go.. Fo shiggidy. What the h . Did I just say fo shiggidy. HAHA.  That's right I did.. I just trademarked that babyyy.. lol. Well here's my wonderful collection of Milani Products. The most recent ones I got at target ..but the rest I got at Walgreens. Pretty sure you can go into both places for one thing and come out with like a TON of stuff. Ugh ..but that's the same ol story there. Right. I don't know if at target the red color is a sign that you just need to Splurge (like it just triggers your mind) all the time when your in there . Who knows. Anyways.. hope your still with me ...as I just went off on my randomness tangent tonight. :)




I know I kind of did it backwards.. Sorry guys.. But the bottom right hand corner of the first picture the baked eye shadows I have are #4 Coffee Shop, #11 Beach Sand. The baked eye shadow is #1 Dolce Pink. Which ill elaborate more on that bad boy here in a sec. The eye liner on the bottom right of the second picture is Milani Infinite Liner in #05 Everlast. That stuff does not move at all. The right shade next to the blue is the cream eyeliner jumbo pencil in #02 Brown Deluxe. Super creamy. The skinny eyeliner pencil is Milani Liquif ' eye in #04 Aqua. Super pretty and kind of has a metallic feel to it. The lipsticks.. My loves.  #29 Teddy bare is the bottom left in the second picture.. the third one in on the second row. and the right hand side to that Is #30 Candied Toffees. They are absolutely amazing lipsticks. I mean they are moisturizing and super creamy and they actually smell really good too :) But I am hoping to expand my collection of Milani Products. I want to definitely get more of the lipsticks and the blushes. Speaking of the Baked blushes...

The one I have is Dolce Pink and it is shimmery.  If you have pale skin like mine this color just looks amazing on your skin. Right along the cheek bones. Oh man.. heres another product like my BB cream and foundation . I can talk about all day. :) But I just wanted to let you guys know if you need a new blush .. THIS ONE! For sure. Its extremely soft as well and light. ME+Milani Makeup=LOVE. But yeah. I thought it would be cool to do a makeup look with just using all of the Milani products. Hmm.. Ideas.. Ill have to do that. :) Check back for that soon guys. As well as my Business things I'll be doing on Pinterest and how I am budgeting as well to save up for that CAMERA! Only a matter of time. Oh only. Where is that Money tree that apparently only exists when I need it to. ?

Sweet Dreams and Have a great Weekend!

Love,
