Viviscal Review and Giveaway

Saturday, March 24, 2012

So it's been 4 months (wow has it flown by!) since I've had my beautiful baby girl Stormy and let me tell you how things have changed! Of course my life is crazy with baby, business (wedding season) home, and everything else we do on a daily basis that we take for granted until you have a baby and realize how easy you had it before. Now of all the changes that have happened in the last 16 weeks the one that has been the most shocking for me is my skin and hair which are super dry. Now my hair, "OH LAWD", my poor hair is having a break down. Now I know it's normal to lose hair after having a baby since you don't lose much while you're preggo. And I know that it's normal to lose about 100 strands a day. But when your losing clumps of hair that's a no bueno situation.

Now seeing your hair fall out everyday after a while does take a toll, especially after having a baby and trying to get your body back and dealing with the stress of everyday life. The last thing you want to see while you're taking your well deserved shower and your first quiet time of the day is hair on your comb and all over you and the tub/shower floor. After seeing all this mess I was going to take a pair of clippers and have a Britney Spears moment but my family, friends, and hairstylist convinced me not to do it. But I did take off 4-5 inches of hair. Now it's to my shoulders.

A few weeks ago I came across a blog named Mama NYC and she was getting 25 bloggers together to do a review and giveaway for this HOT product called Viviscal. How does it work? Viviscal is a natural vitamin that's taken twice a day for hair loss. They claim you see results within 6 months. It's been featured on Dr. Oz which is like Oprah in that once he endorses something then you know it's good. A few others that you've probably heard of that use the product and swear by it are Reese Witherspoon, Mila Kunis, and many more.

  • Results clinically proven and tested
  • Nourishes thinning hair & promotes hair growth
  • Contains natural hair vitamins
  • Drug-free & safe from harmful side effects
  • Works for all ages & ethnicities
  • $49.99 for 30 day supply

My first impression was "Yea Yea Yea but does it really work?" Well..... I've been taking it for 4 days now and my hair feels so soft and it looks so shiny and healthy for once. I'm shocked that I'm already seeing results and looking forward to seeing more in the future. Reviews on it once I'm all done and can't wait. So are you interested yet? Well you should be and guess what (in Oprah voice) You can win one too! You have 25 chances to win (list of bloggers participating below)

Spring 2012 Color Trends From MAKE UP FOR EVER

Friday, March 23, 2012

A few weeks ago I got sent a few items from Makeup Forever's Spring Color Tread. Of course they never disappointment with their products but especially their color choices for their collections.

If you're ever looking for an eye base or eye color that will late all day then this is your thing. The aqua creams are a must in my makeup kit for the last few years. I did the swatch on my hand and this baby didn't want to come off. I had to scrub it off my hand. They sent me Aqua Cream #18 Light Lilac Shimmer and part of the collection is Tangerine Tango (not pictured) an golden orange color . $22

These stardust are so beautiful and so versatile. You can use them dry, wet, and use them as even lip color. Here is a Cockatoo Star Powder #956 and Margarita a gorgeous green gold (not pictured). $19

And as you know I LOVE their lip glosses. They always leave my lips so super glossy but never sticky or tacky and soft. It's part of their Metal collection and pictured is Starfish #M4. It's a bronze metal color and this picture doesn't do it justice. $18

They also have Solar Power #17 which is a bright yellow eye shadow and Cabaret #58 in a bright pink color, Sodalite Blue Aqua Liner #6, Bellflower #15 Rouge Artist Intense lip color, and Driftwood #21L Aqua Eyes in a grey silver color.
These are available at Sephora & Makeup Forever Boutiques. 
Thanks MUFE!
