Today's Lipstick of the Day is...
Revlon's Cherries in the Snow
If you follow me on Facebook, you may remember this as one of my photo "Lipstick of the Day" pictures, however, this color deserves a righteous post.
I ended up getting this back in January, after putting it off for years because I thought "it can't be all that great!" I'm fairly stubborn, so if everyone loves it, I'm dead set on hating it...but I couldn't hold that pose forever...decided earlier this year, I had to have it in my collection. I could never find it anywhere, and everywhere I went anyways, it was always sold out. It is what they call, a "cult classic" :) it's been around, and loved by women since 1953!

Cherries in the Snow should be a part of any woman's beauty collection, and for about 6 bucks a pop, why not?
Olay Pro-X Advanced Facial Cleansing System
The nitty gritty: The box comes with the brush, one brush head, a small tube of olay exfoliating cleanser, and 2 AA batteries. So yes, it runs on batteries, and the brush head needs to be replaced every 3 months.
There was a noticeable difference after using this just one time. After 4 days of using this, the texture and tone of my skin is noticeably evened out. I am literally excited to wash my face now. I love it...can't get enough, I love using this! My face has never felt so clean, and my skin has never felt so good. The best part...my makeup goes on better than ever, AND STAYS ON! No flaking, no dry patches, it's fantastic...this was the best 30 bucks I've ever spent! Long story short...EVERY WOMAN MUST OWN THIS. GO GET ONE, AND THANK ME LATER.
The last thing I'd like to talk about is...
This is a fancy word for Passion Fruit Oil. I know what you're thinking...why put oil on your skin, right? This isn't just ANY oil. Maracuja oil has fantastic properties for your skin, and honestly, this is better than any facial lotion or treatment that I've ever used. Here are some Maracuja Oil Fun Facts and Benefits!
"Known to Amazon locals as "puro milagro", or "the pure miracle", this 100% undiluted organic and moisturizing maracuja oil quickly absorbs for firmer, brighter, smoother skin. Pure maracuja oil is rich in vitamin C, so skin appears instantly brighter and more radiant, as well as essential fatty acids (EFAs), a requirement for healthy skin cells that the body cannot produce on its own. EFA deficiency can result in the breakdown of essential skin cells which causes skin to appear dry and aged. By supplementing skin with pure maracuja oil, you are infusing life back into dull skin and replenishing EFAs to rapidly rebuild and repair. This potent anti-aging elixir that has anti-inflammatory benefits promotes active skin recovery and delivers maximum hydration without any greasy or filmy feel. The recyclable glass bottle and sustainable bamboo cap is decadent in color but not in waste, embodying Tarte's "be green, be smart, be Tarte" packaging philosophy. Fun fact: Each bottle of pure maracuja oil contains 45 maracuja superfruits!
FIRMER: Nutrient-rich essential fatty acids repair & rejuvenate skin
BRIGHTER: Vitamin C awakens skin for a healthy, radiant complexion
SMOOTHER: Moisture-rich formula replenishes & hydrates skin
Pure maracuja oil can be used on all skin types:
It's an ANTI-AGING MIRACLE! My skin has never looked better. My acne responds quite well to this, too!
Now let me really blow your mind.
