Revlon Makeup Review

When Revlon contacted me to do a makeup review for them, I was way excited! Problem was, they sent the stuff to my house in the US, and I am currently on holiday at my Mexico house. 
I was supposed to have this review up ages ago, but I only recently was able to get some things from home in the states. 

Here is what they sent me:

When I saw those bright eyeshadow colors - I'll admit I freaked a little. I mean, am I a CLOWN? But once I got them on (there's even a nifty guide on the back which tells you JUST where to put each color) - it wasn't that bad. Honestly though, not my fave. The purple was gorgeous, but the blue and green were too bright for my skin tone. 

   The red lip-gloss, however, I love! Its a little sticky, but I've definitely had worse - and the color is so pretty. I also love how after I took it off, my lips were stained red. I love me a good lip stain!

Dermagist Complete Rejuvenation System

Have you guys heard of Dermagist?

You may have seen them in:
They are an AWESOME skin care company, and I was so stoked when they contacted me to do a review for them. They sent me their complete rejuvenation system. While you can buy each item separately, I suggest getting  the complete system at once. The results are amazing!
 Complete Rejuvenation System
  After doing the full six weeks, with two applications a day (one when I woke up and one before bed!) - my skin has never been better. While I didn't have many wrinkles to begin with, it helped with the ones I did have - and more importantly (for me) it reduced the size of my pores and cleared my face up.
I LOVE these products and would recommend them to anyone.

The cool thing is, if you aren't happy with your results after 30 days-- just send the used products back and you get a full refund! That's how confident they are in their products, and I totally understand why.
Let me know if you have any questions and be sure to check out the Dermagist website --> it's full of awesome products.

P.S. I Love You...

Want a cute and easy way to show your special someone why you love them?
Here is what I did:

Using some cool old-school library book cards I found at the thrift store for a quarter - I made a little booklet letting my sweet man know why I love him! I just used random scrapbooking leftovers, and made most of the stickers myself on my Silhouette SD. 

The best part about this is that it comes straight from your heart  - and you can continue to add to it all the time!

Maple Blueberry Lemon Parfait

 I found this recipe a loooong time ago and it's been sitting in my "To Make" cooking folder ever since.
I felt like trying out something new today, so this was the lucky recipe! 

Maple Blueberry Lemon Parfait

3 1/2 cups blueberries
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 cup chilled heavy cream
1 tsp lemon juice (I like more of a lemon flavor, so I used 2 tsp. in mine)
1 - 2 cups crushed ginger snaps, coarsely crumbled

1. Cook 2 1/4 cups blueberries with 1/2 cup maple syrup in a saucepan over med heat, stirring occasionally - until blueberries have burst (anywhere from 3-10 min). Cool in an ice bath, stirring occasionally. (I transferred the mixture to a bowl, with I set inside a bigger bowl full of ice water)

2. While blueberry mixture is cooling, beat the heavy cream with remaining 1/4 cup maple syrup in your Kitchenaid (or other electric mixer) until is just holds stiff peaks. 

3. Stir lemon juice and remaining 1 1/4 cup blueberries into cooled blueberry-maple mixture.

4. Alternate layers of blueberry mixture, crumbled cookies, and whipped cream.

5. Enjoy!!

There are so many variations you can take on this recipe. I decided to try it out as is, but in the future I will probably use Chobani yogurt or something instead of the whipped cream! You can spread this out into 6 different parfait cups or put it in a big mason jar to deliver to a friend.

If you try it out, let me know what you think.
