Purple Lab Huge Lips Skinny Hips Gloss


I'm Sure many of you have heard of purple labs "Huge Lips Skinny Hips" gloss. But I have to say I was skeptical at first until I tried it. It's an appetite supressing lip gloss. And not only that it made my lips look almost as good as Angie's ;) And as far as supressing my hunger I have to say it managed to help me fend off a lot of things I would have normally eaten. I don't know if it was mental but even if it is...who cares...It works!!

The secret behind this yummy lip-plumping gloss is 10% Hoodia Gordoni extract, a natural appetite suppressant extracted from cactus-like plants in South Africa and Nambia. Used for centuries by the locals for its hunger curbing abilities, Hoodia has more recently made its way into pills to decrease hunger. Hoodia works by mimicking the effects of glucose on the brain, tricking it into thinking you've just eaten.


The collection includes six glosses, ranging from sheer clear to stunning red, inspired by Robinovitz's favorite icons and philosophies: Red Sole Worship, Kate Kitty, Poledancer, Lychee Martini, Love Your Thighs, No Panty Lines.


My personal Fave is RED SOLE for those of you who are afraid to board the red lip trend this is the perfect way to break yourself in because it is subtle. And if you do love the red lip look apply more and you have glam Red superstar lips and you won't be asking for seconds on any meal you eat !!

Get your skin ready for Summer!

Everyone's skin needs a little pampering after being under wraps for the winter months you want to "emerge" with your skin smooth, silky and touchable ! A body scrub is vital to let your summer skin shine through ! To do an at home body scrub : Invest in a pair of exfoliating in shower gloves and a great moisturizing scrub. The gloves are super important because they help you use less product and still get amazing results. But the scrub is key because it provides you with the hydration and moisture your body needs

My picks :

L'Occitane verbena Body Salt scrub : $36.00
This literally transforms your shower into a mini vacation because it smells unreal. It has essential oils of grapeseed,apricot and sweet almond to nourish and moisturize as well as vitamin A to tone and maintain the healthy look of your skin. It leaves you glowing and smelling deliciousss ! Enough said !









Alba Hawaiian Body Scrub:
I'm guilty of buying this scrub probably every time I step foot into Target. It's organic,vegan and made of sea salt blended with tropical nut oils and invigorating citrus. It isn't harsh on the skin and smells edible ! It changes my mood every time I use it...and makes me want to be on vacation even more :)

One of my favorite Skincare Brands !

One of my tried and true favorite skin care brands is Paula's Choice. To me Fragrance Free products are the way to go. Not only that, the products are environmentally friendly, no animal testing is done and the products truly are state of the art. I have been using her products a little over a year and notice a significant difference in my skin. The texture and tone are better than ever before! I have combination oily skin with the occasional break out and sometimes a dry patch here and there so when I find a product that works on me I know it can help others. She has a specific acne line and a specific aging line which is AMAZING. I live by her exfoliating % beta hydroxy acid gel it really gave my skin a "new start" I also swear by her skin balancing daily mattifying lotion spf15 with antioxidants. You should NEVER go a day without SPF on your skin even if its below zero out and sometimes people with oily skin have a problem with products being too greasy, with this one YOU WON'T it has changed my view on SPF products forever! Not only do the suns rays cause premature aging but they also cause skin cancer...ENOUGH SAID. All of her products are amazing and I think everyone should take a look ! She has written countless books such as "Don't go to the cosmetics counter without me" which offers real reviews about products so you can look into them before buying them...to me that is a GODSEND ! plus, she updates her books very often so she keeps us up to date on our skin care and beauty needs !

My New Found Love...The Clarisonic Mia

In case you're not yet on the bandwagon with this skin cleansing tool, the Clarisonic uses sonic technology which creates 300 movements per second for the brush head to thoroughly cleanse and rid your skin of makeup and anything else regular cleansing leaves behind. And I've done my research. I cleansed alone with no Clarisonic after a long day on which I happened to have a lot of makeup on. Then, I used my Clarisonic Mia (in pink of course) and I was taken back by how much makeup and who knows what else was being left behind on my face when I was cleansing the "old fashioned" way. Let's just say that this is a tool I can now not live without. And I am sure if you test for yourself you will feel the same way. Especially when you see what it removes from your face after what you think was a "good cleaning" !!!!
