Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 Review

Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210

Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 is a beautiful pink shade that I received and is described as being, “As bright and playful as the Corvette parked outside Barbie’s Malibu Dream House,” on the Lauren B. Beauty website. I was thinking of doing nail art with a Barbie theme, but I didn’t want to downplay just how lovely this hue, which has flattering blue undertones, really is. All ages will love Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210. Lauren B. Beauty polish is not only cruelty free it’s also vegan!

Lauren B. Beauty polish is also five-free. That means that it does not have the horrible chemicals of formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. In addition, it’s non-toxic, eco-friendly, and made in the USA.

With the exception of one of my fingers, I applied two coats of Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210. Can you even tell which finger has only one coat of polish? I used the Lauren B. Beauty Gel Like Top Coat on all my fingers. That, of course, also applies like a charm, and dries quickly.

With Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210, I thought the shade looked glamorous no matter if I applied one or two coats. The polish applies so smoothly that you do not have add a second coat. There is no streaking.

The photo below of Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 was taken at noon, on a beautiful, sunny day. I think that this is the only photo, that you can actually see that it’s my middle finger that has only one coat of polish. See how glorious the Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 is?! All of the Lauren B. Beauty polishes that I have received have that same amazing formulation that makes it easy for anyone, even if you’re not a nail blogger, to paint your nails and have them look beautiful. No tricks, no special lighting, no extra effort required.

On my ring finger I applied the Lauren B. Beauty shade Greystone grey, and I placed a pink rhinestone above the pink lips. I actually had to look up the name for it; it’s called a “medusa piercing.” You may not know it, but my children are proud their ‘ole Mom is so hip!

I can confidently write that I cannot imagine what you would not love about Lauren B. Beauty 90210. You don’t like that hue, then check out the Lauren B. Beauty website and choose a different shade!

Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS Review

Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS

I’ve have started to test Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS, the cruelty free and vegan cosmetic line where Gwyneth Paltrow is now the Creative Director of Makeup. I have reviewed Juice Beauty several times in the past, and those links are at the bottom of the post.

 

Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS

Here are the Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS products that I’ve been testing:

  1. PHYTO-PIGMENTS Flawless Serum Foundation in the shade 02 Fair
  2. PHYTO-PIGMENTS Satin Lip Cream in the shade 14, Napa
  3. PHYTO-PIGMENTS Cream Shadow Stick in the shade mist, cream
  4. PHYTO-PIGMENTS Liquid Lip in the shade 18, Gwyneth

Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS

I’d like to report my thoughts so far of the Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS products. First, I went to Ulta, and they were very low on the Cream Shadow. So, I figured I’d try what was left, Cream, a neutral shade that was pretty, and sheer. It applied very smoothly, and had a nice finish, but it wasn’t that “exciting.” So, when it’s in stock, I would definitely like to try Horizon, which is a cool lilac.

The Flawless Serum Foundation in the shade “fair” was amazing! It provides medium to full coverage, and applies like a dream. It felt great on my skin, and I thought it gave me a great, natural look. I love that it felt very moisturizing. This is my favorite of what I’ve tried so far from the Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments. A definite highly recommend!

The Satin Lip Cream in the shade 14, Napa was incredibly moisturizing, and I love the shade. I would highly recommend, and I will need to try other shades! I really love how smooth it made my lips feel. That’s due to the fact that it has Juice Beauty’s Moisture Plant Blend for hydration and the Phyto-Pigments blend of rose, moringa and eclipta daisy.

The PHYTO-PIGMENTS Liquid Lip in the shade “18, Gwyneth” was a beautiful shade! However, perhaps it was just a bad batch, but as you can perhaps see from the photo, it was unfortunately, very messy. For now, I can’t recommend this. I would like to try another Gwyneth shade and see if it’s as good as it sounds on the website.

I’ll update this post at a later date.

Lauren B. Beauty Greystone Grey Review & Photos

Lauren B. Beauty Greystone Grey

Lauren B. Beauty Greystone Grey Nail Polish was sent to me, and I have some photos of this silver shade to share with you. Lauren B. is the owner who has always loved nail polish, and she started her own brand of nail polish with the right combination to produce a line of cruelty free, vegan nail polishes. Lauren B. is five-free, meaning that it does not have the horrible chemicals of formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. Lauren B. Beauty polish is non-toxic, eco-friendly, and made in the USA.

 

This silver slate shade is a very pretty, wearable neutral.  The photos show two coats of Lauren B. Beauty Greystone Grey on all my nails. I also added the Lauren B. Beauty Gel Like Top Coat on all my nails.  On my ring finger is a rose design using the Lauren B. Beauty shade Clueless in 90210.

The glass bottle holds 0.50 fl.oz./14.8 ml. You will love the brush, as it contains twice the amount of bristles that are common on typical polishes. In addition, the bristles are pre-lacquered, so the polish glides on incredibly smoothly.

It’s very smart that all the Lauren B. Beauty bottles have a special over-cap, so you can use either a square handle or a cylindrical handle, for more control.

 

The Lauren B. Beauty Greystone shade looks great in the direct sunlight, on a cloudy day, or inside, in the evening, while I’m hunched over my computer.

The Greystone Grey shade is described as being “muted but with a wild side…while staying unexpectedly moody.” I think that’s a perfect way to describe it. I have to admit that I only wore this shade for three full days, because I loved the previous shade of House of Blues so much! That’s not to take anything away from this hue, it’s just an honest explanation of why I only tested it on my nails for a shorter amount of time than I usually do. My nails dried very quickly, after one and two coats of polish. No streaking at all. In addition, as a busy mom, wife, and being being owned by two big dogs, and actually use my nails–I have had no chips at all. None.

There is nothing that I can think of to even be picky about. If you don’t happen to like the shade, there are so many more to choose from. on the Lauren B. Beauty website. Once again, Lauren B. has formulated a fantastic cruelty free and vegan nail polish! Highly recommend.

Kaeng Raeng Cleansing Mask Review

Kaeng Raeng Cleansing Mask

I was sent the Kaeng Raeng Cleansing Mask and I tried it four times, once a week for four weeks, as I believe in giving skincare products a thorough testing. I’m ready with a review so you can decide if it’s right for you.

The reason that I decided to test the mask was due to three top reasons. The Kaeng Raeng Cleansing Mask is cruelty free, vegan, and Kaeng Raeng donates a portion of every sale to support animal rescue organizations! (That’s a cause that is near and dear to me as I am a volunteer at my local animal shelter). I’m also really pleased to note that the mask is gluten free, phthalate free, and paraben free. Sounds great, right?! So, if you want to learn more about the Kaeng Raeng Cleansing Mask, keep reading!

 

 Kaeng Raeng Cleansing Mask

 

Kaeng Raeng Cleansing Mask

I know Kaeng Raeng from trying their vegan detox cleanse program. Using the same principal, they developed three skincare products; the other two products will soon be reviewed on my blog. By the way, do you know what Kaeng Raeng (pronounced kang-rang) means? It’s, “be healthy, be strong,” in the Thai language.

 

The jar of the Kaeng Raeng Cleansing Mask contains 2 oz. of a detoxifying charcoal face mask, which  means that you’ll be able to enjoy approximately fifteen masks. It’s a very dark black shade, as one would expect with activated charcoal in the ingredients. It’s also very thick (it’s sticking to the spoon I dipped in), so make sure that you wipe and rinse off your face with a dark colored washcloth.

You are directed to apply liberally (which I took to mean that I should have fun generously slathering it over my clean, dry skin). Keep out of your eyes, of course! Now, set a timer for ten minutes and let the mask dry completely. The first time I used it, I felt a bit of tingling while the mask was drying. I was concerned, as I have sensitive skin. However, after I gently, and thorougly, removed it with warm water and a dark wash cloth, all I saw was a bit of redness (from wiping off, and the mask), but my skin otherwise looked fine, and felt very exfoliated. As recommended, I stored it in the refrigerator, to extend it’s shelf life.

I tried the Mask in the evening, and when I awoke the next morning, my skin was incredibly smooth, with no sign at all that I had any adverse reaction. I also found that the Mask really seemed to able to zero in on any breakouts I had, and make my skin look better. I definitely felt as though I had visited a spa (while in reality I had not left the confines of my bathroom!). Kaeng Raeng recommends that you follow the mask with their After Glow moisturizing serum, which I will review soon.

So, after using the Kaeng Raeng for once a week, for four weeks, I can highly recommend it, and will continue to use it since I love how it makes my skin feel, and look.

Cons? Other than not wanting to take a photo with my face covered in a black mask, I could think of absolutely nothing that others would not love about the product!

Lauren B. Beauty My Private Cabana Review

Lauren B. Beauty My Private Cabana

Lauren B. Beauty My Private Cabana Nail Polish shade was sent to me, and I’m so happy to be able to share this beautiful pale mint green with you. First, a little bit about Lauren B. Beauty, a cruelty free, vegan company. The owner is Lauren B., who has always loved nail polish. When she was little, she would frequently set up her own nail salon in the garage and paint her grandmother’s (and other family members’) nails. By the age of fifteen, she was obsessing over the newest nail trends so much that she would put nail polish shades in color groups and, during the hot summers, stalk out Cape Cod Massachusetts convenience stores while everyone else was at the beautiful beaches!

I loved reading that since some “well meaning” adults advised her to go into a career (other than the nail industry), she graduated college and started her medical career journey. However, like most people that don’t pursue things that excite us, she found that “something was missing.” Fortunately, the hair care guru Philip B. is her uncle! He asked, and got her help. Eventually, Lauren B. started her own brand of nail polish that was  just the right combination to produce a line of cruelty free, vegan nail polishes, without the horrible chemicals of formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. Hence, Lauren B. Beauty is a five-free nail polish. In addition, Lauren B. Beauty polish is non-toxic, eco-friendly, and made in the USA.

What I love about the pale mint green shade is that I believe that it looks great no matter what the season, and seems to look perfect on all skin tones. The photos show one coat of Lauren B. Beauty My Private Cabana on my thumb; the other nails have two coats. The only finger that I put a top coat on was my ring finger, where I added a little flower, and a rhinestone, and the Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues shade. I used the Lauren B. Beauty Gel Like Top Coat.

I love the brush! It contains twice the amount of bristles that are common on typical polishes. The Lauren B. Beauty My Private Cabana glided on smoothly, and certainly without streaks.  The one coat of polish on my thumb is amazing.  I’m assuming that is due to the quality and also the fact that each of the bristles are pre-lacquered, so the brush is just the right width to easily paint my fingernails.  Also, as I’m not a nail blogger, I’m a good test to see if a “typical” customer has any issues.

Bonus: the bottle has a special over-cap, which means you can use either a square handle or a cylindrical handle, for more control.

Here’s what I found, as a busy mom, wife, and being being owned by two big dogs. First, without a doubt, the Lauren B. Beauty My Private Cabana is very glossy, even without a top coat. My nails dried very quickly, after one and two coats of polish. Yes, I did add a top coat to my nails after the photos to test how long I could go before I noticed any chipping. My verdict, after 5 days, when I am now writing this review, I have only minor chips. However, I do want it noted that I actually use my nails! There was nothing that a bit of polish couldn’t easily fix, and some of it, I’m sure, would not be noticeable to most people!

The Lauren B. Beauty My Private Cabana shade looks great in the direct sunlight, and as in the photo below, in my house, with no direct light on it.
