Lisa Hoffman Beauty Tunsian Noroli Review

Lisa Hoffman Beauty

Lisa Hoffman Beauty is a cruelty free, Los Angeles based company founded by, of course, perfumer Lisa Hoffman. Each scent in the Lisa Hoffman Beauty line was crafted to capture the essence of Lisa’s favorite destinations from around the world and to transport women to places filled with beauty and tranquility. Some years ago I had been sent one of the Lisa Hoffman Beauty fragrances to try, and I loved it so much I decided to purchase it. Here’s my review for the Lisa Hoffman Beauty Tunsian Noroli Eau De Parfum.

 

Lisa Hoffman Beauty

The glass bottle holds two fl. oz, 60 mL. You can purchase it on the Lisa Hoffman Beauty website, or as I discovered, the Home Shopping Network. The cost starts in price from $22 and reaches upwards of $65.

Lisa Hoffman Beauty

The Lisa Hoffman Beauty Tunsian Noroli starts with classic florals, has a heart of neroli blossom, and then finishes with warm base notes. It has a heartnote of honeyed neroli amongst gardenia petals, orange blossom, ylang ylang, and buchu leaf.

Lisa Hoffman Beauty described the fragrance as a “sultry and opulent scent…classically feminine and utterly modern.”

 

For application, Lisa Hoffman suggests either spraying it onto your skin, or, misting it into the air and walking through.

Lisa Hoffman Beauty Tunsian Noroli Eau De Parfum

To sum it up, I love the Lisa Hoffman Beauty Tunsian Noroli Eau De Parfum fragrance in the air, and on me!

Disclosure: I have nothing to disclose. I purchased the Lisa Hoffman Beauty Tunsian Noroli Eau De Parfum.

Ani Michele Nail Lacquer

Ani MICHELE Nail Lacquer

Ani Sousamian is the founder and owner of Ani Michele Products LLC, better known as ani MICHELE on the beautiful lacquer bottles. Since early childhood, Ani has had a passion and infatuation for nail polish. However, the ani MICHELE lacquer is different from the “typical” polish you would purchase. First, yes, ani MICHELE is cruelty free, vegan, made in the United States, and five free of chemicals!

Do you know what lacquer that is 5 Free of Chemicals means? It means that all the polishes are not only made without the three common chemicals found in nail polishes (Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde), but also without two other dangerous chemicals (Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor). Hence, Ani’s nail laquers are free of these five chemicals.

Ani wants her lacquer to, “inspire, empower and compliment each women’s beauty and personality, inside and out.”

I received two ani MICHELE nail lacquers. The first I will show you is the shade Love Bug, an absolutely gorgeous shade of red. The inspiration? A lady, which, as Ani points out, puts a smile on your face.

ani michele

I love that Ani so strongly belives in staying positive and hoping for the best. She’s not all “talk,” though. Look on the bottom of each of the ani MICHELE bottles, and you will read the inspirational motto, “always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.”

Ani MICHELE Nail Lacquer

I love the ani MICHELE polish. It was fast drying, and taking the photo after three days of wear, it’s long lasting, and has a fabulous glossy sheen. The photos I took are without any top coat at all! I do plan to add a top coat, but I wanted you to see the amazing shine without anything added.

So far, in addition to the beautiful shade and shine, I like the look and feel of the glass bottle, and the brush is just the right width for painting my fingernails.

 

Ani MICHELE Nail Lacquer

Ani wants her ani MICHELE polish to be a reminder to live a positive karmic lifestyle, feel good about yourself, and make a positive impact on those around you. I’m loving the Love Bug shade, and next week I’ll share another shade I received. Stay tuned!

Tips For The Perfect At Home Manicure

Tips For The Perfect At Home Manicure

Tips For the Perfect At Home Manicure was written by Deco Miami  Founder, Julianna. You can read a little more about her cruelty free and vegan nail lacquer at the end of the post. “Ladies tell me all the time that they love nail polish, but are soo bad at painting their own nails. Here are some tips that I’ve picked up for an awesome mani that you can do yourself.

 

 Tips For The Perfect At Home Manicure

 Always use a top and base coat

I know, it’s hard to remember to use a top and base coat,  but they really really really will improve the quality of your mani. For one, painting a base coat on your nails will make your nail smoother so that your color will go on more evenly. A base coat will also protect your actual nail from being stained by your polish, because sometimes lacquers with yellow pigments (yellows, greens, some aquas, oranges) might leave a yellow tint on your nails.

A top coat’s purpose is easy to understand: not only does it make your nail glossier, but it’s meant to act as a protective barrier to prevent chips. Ever notice that your top coat doesn’t chip? That’s because the formula is a little different from color formula so that it doesn’t “flake off” in the same way that your color might if you banged your nail against something.

It’s not a huge deal if you’re in a hurry and need to paint over your old mani with a new color, as long as the brands are the same.

Every nail polish brand has a slightly different formula, and sometimes they don’t mix well when you put one on top of the other. I’ve never had any issues painting Deco lacquer over Deco lacquer, but Deco lacquer over another brand (or visa versa) always results in frustration as the newly applied coat never seems to completely harden. Like goes with like. Pro Tip: This rule especially holds true for top coats!

Tips For The Perfect At Home Manicure

 

 Tips For The Perfect At Home Manicure

Color contrasts accentuate short nails, and color compliments make your nails seem bigger
If you have short nails, an easy trick to make them appear longer is simply to paint your nails with a neutral toned color that’s the same hue as your skin tone. For example, I have a rosy hue to my skin, and dusty pink créme, Nip Slip, looks awesome on my nails for this reason. I can get away with wearing Tied Down when I have shorter nails, because even though it’s a dark color, it has a burgundy tint to it that compliments the red in my skin. I only dare to wear Black Like My Soul or Brickell Blue when my nails are longer because the colors are such a contrast on my skin tone, so my nails pop out more. 

Less is more
If you’re a bit of a messy nail polish painter, always remember that less is more when it comes to covering your nail. People get into trouble when they try to paint over their entire nail and accidentally get polish on their skin. The trick is simply to paint each nail with deliberate strokes more towards the center of your nail. Your nails will also look sleeker if you do it this way, because you’re creating the illusion that your nails are longer by not adding more width to them.

 Tips For The Perfect At Home Manicure

 

Use a crystal nail file
A crystal file is better than a traditional cheapy nail file because the rough part of the file is super fine and practically melts off the ridges of your nails. It’s also cleaner than a traditional sandpapery file, and a glass file won’t wear down so you never have to buy another one!

Solidify your paint job
Run your freshly painted nails (like, 5-10 minutes after painting them) under cold water for 2-3 minutes to help harden the lacquer. Coldness hardens lacquer, this is an easy way to add some immediate durability to your mani.

Stability
Maybe this is obvious to some of you, but put your hand down on a tabletop when you paint it! It’s much easier to neatly paint something when it isn’t floating around in front of you. Especially when you’re painting with your non-dominant hand. (Meaning, if you’re right handed and painting your right hand with your left hand.)

Patience, patience, patience!
Patience is the key, even though I know you don’t want to hear that! Take your time when you’re painting your nails, and allow each coat to dry before adding another coat. It’s better to take your time than to be messy and have to re-do your nails all over again.”

Jules

It Cosmetics It’s Your Bye Bye Collection

It Cosmetics It’s Your Bye Bye Collection

Check out this incredible five-piece It Cosmetics It’s Your Bye Bye Collection. Four of the anti-aging products will debut on QVC Friday, March 25, 2016 at midnight (ET), and will be offered for one day only, It Girls!

Here’s a photo of what is included in the Collection:

  It Cosmetics It’s Your Bye Bye Collection

It Cosmetics It’s Your Bye Bye Collection

There are five products, and four of them are new!

  1. Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination, the full-coverage concealer is now infused with the look of light.
  2. The new Bye Bye Pores Blush
  3. New Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush
  4. The new Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm
  5. Also included is the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder.

It Cosmetics It’s Your Bye Bye Collection

About Each Product:

1. The new Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination. I’m sure you’ve all tried the Bye Bye Under Eye, which is an award winning product. This is now infused with Drops of Light
Technology to brighten the look of your skin with soft luminosity. It is a full coverage concealer, and it is very easy to use. Simply warm it up by placing a dot size amount on the back of your hand, and rub it gently with your fingertip. Then tap the concealer directly onto your under eye area, or whatever else you wish to conceal on your face.Then blend with an It Cosmetics brush in a circular motion to smooth the concealer over your skin. And here’s a tip. To give this concealer a soft-velvet finish, dust some of the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder over the top to set it. (Read more about that product below).

2. The new Bye Bye Pores Blush Airbrush Brightening Blush. This is sheer, easily buildable, and really soft, silk-infused blush. Yes, it does give you a naturally pretty flush of color.

3. The new Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush. OMG! The It Cosmetics brushes are really divine. Since you can see what the whole brush looks like (see first photo of all the products); I thought I would take a photo of what my eyes see when I look stare down at the dome-shaped head of this really plush brush. The fibers are cut to optically blur away the look of imperfections on your skin. You will not be disappointed with the latest brush!
New! Heavenly Skin™ Bye Bye Pores™ Powder Brush Custom-cut with a super plush, dome-shaped head, this revolutionary brush features skin-loving fibers that optically blur away the look of imperfections for flawless, skin-perfecting results every time!

 

4. The new Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm is really unique. Of course, it’s cruelty free, but it’s also paraben free and sulfate free.

It Cosmetics It’s Your Bye Bye Collection

In addition, since it’s It Cosmetics, you know that it is formulated with skin loving ingredients like collagen, peptides, and antioxidants. You can use this cleanser to take all your makeup off; I only used in on my face, and not to remove my eye makeup. I’m glad I don’t even have to wet my skin first. Just massage it into my skin, and then wash it off with warm water. You can also use a face cloth. I’ve been using it for a week now, and each time my skin has felt very smooth and soft. My skin can be dry sometimes, and I’m so glad that this was very gentle, and did not make my face feel tight after using it!

 

 

5. Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder is a fan favorite, so those who have already purchased it separately shoudn’t mind having it in the Kit. I’m assuming that you’ve watched at least one presentation by Jamie Kern (the founder of It Cosmetics) on QVC. Here she is talking about the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder!

It Cosmetics It’s Your Bye Bye Collection

Swirl your new Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush into the compact, and tap the brush gently on the lid to remove excess powder. Then, softly buff the powder onto your skin in curcular motions to blur the look of pores and fine lines. It can be worn alone on your bare skin, or over makeup. Also, in case you missed it earlier in the post, you can use this to give a soft velvet finish to the Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination. It feel so silky smooth because it is actually formulated with real silk!

 

It Cosmetics It’s Your Bye Bye Collection

Remember, this will only be offered on QVC on Friday, March 25, 2016 at midnight (ET) until 11:59 p.m. (PT). You can go to QVC.com, the QVC apps, or call (800) 345-1515.
