Hi Ladies,

I have some amazing Beauty products to share with you today that I have been trying out for the last few weeks. Karina Smirnoff, who most of you know from Dancing with the Stars, teamed up with LA Splash Cosmetics and brought out a great line of lipsticks and make up, The “Karina Collection”.

I love the fact that all of their products are cruelty-free and gluten-free and are made only of FDA approved, domestically purchased ingredients.

In my pictures I used the “Karina Catwalk Mascara”, the “Art-ki-tekt Waterproof slim Eyeliner” and the “Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick” in “Creme Brulee”.

I also tried the “Karina Smirnoff Liquid Lipstick” and the “Diamond Dust”, a loose pigment with very fine sparkles.

If you are a lipstick person this is a great product to have. I loved how the lipstick stays on the whole day, no smudging or coming off at all. I can use it for dancing and performing or for every day. It is perfect for a girls night out or dinner in a great restaurant – no worries about lip stains on the wine glass.

I usually do use lip liner if I wear a stronger lipstick because I feel it adds definition and prevents color bleeding, but with this product I feel I can go without. The applicator make it easy to define and contour the lips and the lipstick dries in quickly without dehydrating the lips.

What is your favorite lipstick? I would love to know and hear what makes it your favorite.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day,

brought to you by Karina Smirnoff Collection and LA Splash Cosmetics

Survivor Eyes…

My eyebrows have always been some sort of a dilemma. They are quite thin (in the 90ies those thin eyebrows were the latest…sigh)  and nowadays I used to just shape them with an eyebrow pencil do get some more definition.

So when I got approached by Survivor Eyes to try their product, I thought maybe this would be a great product for me. I also loved the idea behind the company, Survivor Eyes has been created by a breast cancer survivor and each eyebrow kit purchase supports a charity supporting women who struggle with hair loss.

Since I am a dancer and live a quite active lifestyle, I used the Forever Brows Kit for Active Women, which is sweat proof and waterproof. It comes with 10 unique brow templates, a dual sided applicator and brow pomade cosmetic. It also comes in 3 shades to chose from. You can have soft Blonde, Brunette or Dark Brown.

I never used a stencil to shape my eyebrows before, but it was really easy and the result looked quite natural and very even.

I love this product and I love the message it sends to women who are going through a very difficult time in their lives. It helps everybody to feel beautiful and good about themselves. But it is really something everybody can use.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a great week so far, I am sending you lots of positive vibes,

xo BB
