Cassani Fogless Shower Mirror Review

I was specially selected by Tomoson and Cassani to try out the Cassani Fogless Shower Mirror. While i recieved the product for free, all opinions expressed are honest and my own. As soon as it arrived, I put it to the ultimate test. I turned the shower on and made sure the water was nice and hot so that it would create a lot of steam. The mirror exceeded my expectations and stayed fog free and crystal clear. I really loved that i could look into it while washing my face with cleanser to make sure that i did not miss any spot. It was very simple to install and came with an awesome instruction manual. My husband tried it out the same day while shaving his face in the shower. He loved that he didn't have to shut the shower off and step out just to see if he left any hairs behind. I would definately recommend it to anyone who washes their face or shaves in the shower. I think it would even be a great product to apply makeup in front of after you are done showering. It is available to purchase here on amazon for a very reasonable of only $14.99 and if you are a prime member you can get it shipped free.

Hiding In Sunshine

I was selected by influenster( to recieve a wonderful book called Hiding In Sunshine. Hiding In Sunshine is a awesome thriller by the father-daughter team of John and Caitlin Stuart who reside in the immediate area where these fictional events occur. The main characters of the story are a husband and wife Gavin and Lisa Brinkley and their two daughters. The novel starts off kind of slow paced with what seems like the perfect family that keeps to themselves. Then after a failed kidnapping plot and an attempt by the mysterious group, The Enterprise to steal there identity they are taken in to the witness protection program.They are constantly having to look over there shoulders and be cautious in fear the the Enterprise will find them. After the failed kidnapping attempt, the novel really picks up and has so many twists and turns. I could not put it down. It has a very suprising ending. Overall i would definately recommend the novel. It was an excellent read and I am definately looking forward to this duo's novels again. I spotted this novel on amazon for 19.95 for the paperback version you can find it here :

Broadway Nails imPress Press on Manicure Review

One thing that makes these press-on nails stand out from all the rest is their adorably cute packaging. Each set of press-on nails comes packaged in container looking like a nail polish bottle! They are transparent, so you can see exactly which nails you’re reaching for- and they store easily among the rest of your polishes too. The cap twists off and the “bottle” opens up to reveal the press-on nails as well as a Prep Pad (to clean, sanitize and prepare the nail for maximum adhesion)! Each pack of imPRESS comes with 24 press-on nails in 12 different sizes, so you’re sure to find your match (hey, if it can match my tiny little pink fingernail, you’ll be able to find a size for you). Each nail is lined with a plastic film, with a tab hanging off the nail-bed end. First, I matched up all of my nails to their appropriate sizes (each nail actually has a number underneath it, making it a total cinch to match up both hands). Next I prepped all my fingernails with the included prep pad (smells like rubbing alcohol to me) and then peeled off the plastic tab underneath the press-on nail, slid it tight to the nail bed and pressed it down. Note- do this carefully! These nails are incredibly sticky and once they are down… they’re down. I was blown away with how well they stayed… usually I’m so cautious about ripping off a fake nail, but these felt so secure! I loved the fact there was no glue to mess with and they did look really beautiful once on! It was so quick too- it only took a few minutes to do both hands and best of all- no drying time! They come in a large variety of gorgeous colors and patterns so it’s easy to keep a few sets on hand for those emergency events or last minute date nights! There were a few things that I wasn’t too happy about- I have very small fingernails, so these hung off the end of my finger quite a bit making it really difficult to type with. I’d love to see imPRESS come out with a “short” version for those of us who spend our days on a keyboard (they are supposed to last up to a week, but I took mine off after a few days because I really needed to be able to type better)! They are really a one-time use only deal (unless you want to pull out some nail glue and glue them back on)- once you take them off (which you can do by peeling them off from the side edge), they really lose their stickiness and ability to feel secure.

NYC New York Color Showtime Glitter Eyeliner Review

The pencil eyeliner just comes with a plastic cap (no sharpener included). The cardboard packaging the liner is in has the ingredients in the back. There are some instructions about how to use and care for this product. It states that this liner is “smudge-proof, suitable for contact lens wearers [and is] dermatologist tested.” This color is in 944 Show Time Black. Then pencil glides on very smoothly and opaquely. It has a creamy texture with a lot of glitter, and it is visible when applied. After all: The first time I applied this, I noticed smudging, creasing and glitter bits under my lash line. I tried this again with powder . This time there was less smudging, but it still creased and had glitter fallout. Maybe this glitter pencil is more appropriate for a night out. This product needs an oil-based remover. I used my water based ones, and I still had product on my lids. Using my cleansing oil made removal super easy. Overall, this product was nice and creamy, but the glitter was a bit much for me. The color payoff is nice, but it is not smudge-proof as it claimed.
