New brand at Walgreens

Nonie Crème Colour Prevails colourwash comfort balms
5005- a strawberry red colored balm
4328-a grape colored purple

This line was a collaboration with Butter London director and Walgreen's stores. The Walgreen's that I visit the most has always been at the front of new lines, current products and prestige items. I noticed about 2 months ago when they were installing the line at my Walgreen's and did some web research and wanted to get my hands on lippies first as that is my addiction and a great place for the money to start. In the summer lip balms and sticks and pencils are quick easy and portable in a scrubs pocket without getting messy. I picked up the 2 comfort balms and tried them on at home. They are sheer coverage however with a good bit of pigmentation. They are not sticky! and feel cooling and almost feel watery. They are definitely soothing and a slight bit of tint was left behind after wearing them. They are not supposed to be long lasting and they wear a couple of hours before I reapply. They are small enough to carry with me at work. They are nourishing and non-drying. All pluses I might add!

I plan on checking out a few other of their products and will let you know when I do. In the meantime, check out and see what you think about this new product and brand launch.

Let me know your thoughts below and thanks for stopping by the blog!

Vera Wang at Kohl's

Did you know that Vera Wang has makeup products at Kohl's? Foundations, primers, concealers, eyeshadows, blushes, eyeliners, some skincare. I was surprised to see these gorgeous eyeshadow quads (reminds me of Armani) and the satiny and saturated colors. Ladies if you haven't seen or tried these run to your local Kohl's and check em out!

Kohl's has upped their makeup game! Sherry

Nars Pencils birthday gift from Sephora

Top: Cruella
Bottom: Rikugien

I look forward to the Sephora birthday gift every year and this year was right up my alley!!!! As a professed lipstick/crayon/gloss/stain addict, I bounced my way to the local Sephora and announced that I was getting my gift. I had every intention to go in, get the gift and leave. HA! My shopping damage later left me happy but broke. So yeah, I can NOT go into Sephora for just a browse (most of the time:).

For all the August birthdays out there, Happy birthday to ya'll!!!!!

Stay cool in this heat, Sherry

Ridding the face of fuzz!

Magic Razorless Cream Shave

Ladies, I have used Nair for years! and endured the burn to rid my face of the thick fuzz that makes my makeup look wonky. Yes, I have blonde hair but it gets thick I tell ya. Last night I reached for my Nair and was out. I remembered that I was browsing the clearance endcap at my local Walgreens and saw this and thought, "why not?". It was clearenced for $1.19.

So I reached for this and thought well it's the weekend, don't have to work and have time to heal if it burns my skin. OMG, not only did it not burn, it was gentle, took 4 minutes and took ALL the fuzz off easily!!! The product is originally billed for bald heads, I have made another use out of it!!! Since, it was clearance I was worried it would be hard to find so I gooogled it when I got home. It can be found at Walmart for 4 bucks and some change and you can be sure I will be buying a backup!!

Run, grab this, it works. Do you have another favorite to rid your face of fuzz? Do tell!!!

Fuzz free blessings :), Sherry

Toms Long Lasting Natural Deodarant

I was sent this for review and to say that I was skeptical is an understatement. I am a menopausal woman and sweat normally heavily so I believe in heavy duty antiperspirants and was leery of trying a natural product. Enter a day off, 105 degrees in Texas and testing began. The fragrance is subtle, it goes on smoothly without white streaks and has a roll up tube. So far, so good. Had to run some errands in the middle of the hot Texas day and upon returning home, sniffed my underarms and was pleasantly surprised that there was no funky odor! At the end of a 12 hour day, my arms were dry, the underarm odor was pleasant and I even got my husband to sniff (along with his jokester self:). Ladies I believe I have a winner in the natural deodorant department and will possibly repurchase. If it can handle Texas heat and a menopausal woman, it's a winner!

Have you tried natural deodorants? What are your thoughts? Do tell!!!

Too Faced Melted Metallic Lip

Color: Metallic Violet

Ya'll this lippie rocks!!! Not only am I a lippie addict and I don't play by anybody's rules, I try all kinds of lippies. I bought this to see what all the metallic fuss was about (and because purple is my fav color:). So I gave it a test run and ooooohhhhhhh. It lasts, it gives just the right amount of sheen to the lips, which us older gals need to make the lips look bigger. It is a tad bit drying on me, easily remedied, tends to migrate if I don't line my lips. Overall, I may just buy more of these and play, play and play!

I have several of the original Melted lippies and love 'em. What are your thoughts ladies? Do you own these? Do tell!!!
