Wet n Wild Megalast Review

Image

Hey Frugalista’s

I recently fell in love with the Wet N Wild Megalast long wear nail polish line. These polishes are cheap and affordable range from $1.49-$1.99. These polishes go on nice, last average 5 days and has a nice shine. It is a very good quality despite the price I would compare the quality to salon brand polishes. I have on “on a trip” it is a purple/blue color. I absolutely love it and it has not chipped so far, I have been wearing it for 3 days. Frugalista’s this is a major steal for the price and quality your getting. Go on and try it!

Maybelline BB Cream Review & Comparison To My Regular Iman Foundation Routine

Hey Frugalista’s

I wanted to see what all the rave was about BB creams. I decided to try Maybelline since it was the most talked about. I got the Deep tint shade. CVS had a BOGO 50% off so I bought the Maybelline BB Cream for $8.99 and got Maybelline Falsies mascara for half price at $4. Overall I like the BB cream and would recommend it. It felt like a lotion and it provided light coverage. I have dry skin and it provided moisture and did not make my face dry. I say go and try it!

NYC Shiny Clear Polish Review

Image

Hey Frugalista’s

So I went to target this week and I picked up the NYC  Extra Shiny topcoat #271. I really needed a new clear polish and I had a coupon to top it off so I thought I was getting a steal. The NYC Extra Shiny topcoat was $0.94 and I had a $0.50 off coupon on any NYC product. Therefore, I paid $0.44 which was great at the time! This coupon is available on Target.com by the way if  your interested in saving some money. So you know I love a bargain and was happy about the price. I painted my nails and used the NYC top coat, the next day my polish was stripping off 😦 . My mom also used it on her nails for just a clean natural manicure and hers was chipping off the next day as well. Therefore, the NYC  Extra Shiny topcoat is not a great product, I would not recommend it at all! As they say you get what you paid for lol! I will say I used other NYC cosmetic products such as the liquid eyeliner and mascara and it was great! Just thought I would share 😀

JUNE 2012 GLOSSY BOX REVIEW

ImageHey Frugalista’s

I received my June 2012 Glossy box a few weeks ago. This month Glossy Box was another winner! There were plenty full size products which is what I always love. The theme of the June box was summer! It had summer essentials in this months box. They gave us a razor to have smooth sexy legs for the summer, Wella Ocean spritz hair spray for sexy beach curls. Also, sunscreen to protect our skin from those harmful rays, face cleanser to freshen up, dual lipstick to have many sexy lip color combinations for the summer.

Image

Image

The first Item is the Gillette Venus Embrace Razor value of $13.43. I LOVE this razor I have been using it prior to receiving it in the Glossy Box. This razor is a bit pricey but its worth the money. It has 5 blades and around the razor its cushioned with a gel foam. Also, there is a moisture strip above the blades which is great. One of the best things about this razor is you can buy the replacement heads at a drugstore or walmart. You get a really nice close and smooth shave. This razor alone almost pays for the box it self.

Image

The second item is the Biore 4 in 1 Revitalizing Cleanser, its value is $9.99 and its 200ml. This is another full size product, Biore has a good line of facial products. I have used some in the past and loved them. However, I had never tried this cleanser until I got my Glossy Box. This cleanser is a 4 in 1 it purifies, cleanses, tones and refreshes your skin. I can tell you it is definitely refreshing it leaves a nice clean minty fresh feeling. After you wash your face it feels like all the impurities and make up is lifted and my face felt lighter. This cleanser is a pump bottle and it foams up with water. I would recommend  this product!

Image

The third product is the Cover Girl Blast Flipstick-Blendable lip duo. This product is also full size and the value is $12.50 it is 3.8gr in size. This is the product I was most excited about in my box. This Cover Girl Flipstick is new and when I received it, it was not even available in Canada at the time. It was super exciting being the first to try an item before it was available to others. Glossy Box gave me the perfect shade I got the 800 Whisper murmure color. At one end its a baby pink/mauve color the other end is a luminous pink with a little gold shimmer in it. The lipstick is very smooth and moisturizing. The great feature of this product is you have 3 lip colors in one lipstick. You can wear each shade alone or you can use both and blend a new color. Cover Girl made a great product and I love it! It’s a double ended lipstick with endless possibilities! This product almost covers the price of the box alone.

I have been wearing this lipstick every day since I got it 😀

Image

My fourth item is the Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz its a 150mL bottle which is full size! The value is $16.99 this product alone pays for the box. I love high end hair products however, I do not use spritz and hairsprays in my hair 😦 Moreover, we all know Wella is a great salon brand with great products. I cannot give my personal opinion because I have not tried the product. The information booklet says that it gives chunky texture for that carefree beachy hair look. An information booklet came with it telling you have to achieve the beach curls. Wella is exclusively available at salons.

Image

This picture shows this month there was 4 full sized products which is an excellent value each of these items either pay for the box it self or close to.

The June Glossy Box had 3 actual sample size samples this month. The above picture shows the 3 sample products. First sample is the Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strip most of us are familiar with this product it has been out for years. You apply it to your nose and it removes blackheads and whiteheads. Its a good product, there was 1 strip in this months box. If your interested in purchashing these strips it is $9.99 for 8strips in a package.That makes the one strip in the box worth $1.25.

The second sample is Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex 7ml. This product I was not excited about I am too young for wrinkle cream I feel it was not suited for me. Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex is an anti-aging formula. It has advanced micro-fillers to smooth fine lines. It contains BioPeptide and B3 complex it hydrates and improves the appearance of deep lines in 14 days.The sample can be used maybe 3-4 times the cost for a 50mL bottle would cost $30.99. The value of this sample would be approximately $4. I tried it and It has no scent and honestly it did not feel amazing on my skin nor was it creamy.

The third and last sample was Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Lotion SPF55. This sample size was pretty good 14 ml,it is travel size perfect for a vacation. This sunscreen is voted #1 for best feeling sunscreen by Canadian Dermatologists. I actually had a skin damage test done years ago and the Dermatologist recommended this sunscreen so I totally believe that claim. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry- Touch sunscreen is very light and it asborbes fast. It does not feel heavy and greasy like many other suncreens. It contains Helioplex which provides photostable protection from UVA/UBV rays. The cost for this product is $15.99 for an 88ml bottle. Therefore, the value of the sample is $2.66, I would recommend this product for sure.

The June 2012 Glossy Box was another excellent deal for the monthly price of $15. This months total value of all the products is $60.82! That’s a steal! 🙂 I would definetly recommend Glossy box to anyone. The products are great and you get 4-5 full size products as you can see from my previous reviews. Well Frugalista’s If your interested I have a link for you below just copy and paste.
