My Fav Products Of 2011

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

After a long year of testing, reviews, shopping, and being introduced to stuff I would've never tried. Here is a list of some of my favs of 2011 that constant of beauty and everyday must haves. Now, there are a few repeats from 2010 but that goes to show that I must have and can't live without them. Let's begin!

Keurig K-Cup Home Brewer
I've heard so much about this machine and was not trying to believe the "Hype" until I had some ladies in a private group (EMJ) highly recommend it. In September I saw posted on a coupon site this amazing deal at Staples for the Keurig B40 that normally goes for $119.99 on sale for $69.99 w/coupon of $10.00 off bring it to $59.99. After help from a great GM in Lyndhurst, NJ he was able to find a machine for me and put it on hold. Well, that night changed my coffee experience forever.
Kcups are what holds the coffee grounds for an individual cup of coffee, teas, and hot chocolate.This thing is so convenient and life saving (being a new mom again). You can have a different cup of fresh coffee every time and none to go to waste. Keurig $98 & up. *Staples Shop At Home 4% cash back at Staples.

Other items that are not beauty related that made the list.

Need I say more? That's right it's on my list again for the second year in a row. I swear by this machine that has changed my life. I received this as an early Xmas gift from my Peanut (Olive Juice). The set came with a Cherry Blossom Clarisonic Plus and Bliss skin care w/ 3 brush heads.  Clarisonic Plus $216.48 *QVC Ebates & Shop At Home 6% cash back now.

Other beauty machine items that made the cut.

Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm
Tinted lip balm that was unveil late last year. Convenient and moisturizing. Fav color Richer Raisin. Clinique Chubby Stick $15 *Sephora Ebates 8% and Shop At Home 9%.

Makeup & nail products that also made the list.

Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector
I always tell my clients that without good skin care their makeup won't look the best it can look. I take it very serious since I've been suffering from adult acne since I was 23 and I think now after 10 years or so (no adding up to figure my age please) I have gotten control of it. With the help of my great dermatologist (TY Mr. & Mrs. Dr. Horn) and a great skin care routine I'm happy with the results. YAY! Here are a few of my favs of 2011.
Being a women of color (Latina) and dealing with adult acne I've had to deal with the effects of acne scars. Clinique's Even Better Clinical is really amazing. This stuff made me skin do a 180 and made it look better then when I was a teenager. Really broke down my acne scars and even out my skin tone. It's a bit of an investment but your skin deserves it. It is the largest organ on your body. Clinique's Even Better Clinical $49.50 & up. *Ebates 6% cash back

Thanks to all my followers and supporters for a great year and looking forward to 2012! xoxo

Review on Nume Flat Iron

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

I must admit that sometime ago I received this Nume flat iron to try out and give a review on and have been so busy with life, business, and being pregnant that I hadn't gotten a chance to do it. I apologize for the delay and I'm now getting time to do this much needed and deserved review.

As most of you may know, I have naturally coiled curly hair and most of the time I wear it naturally. But I do love mixing it up and getting my hair blown out. I like to wear it blown out mostly in the cold weather months since I don't have to worry about any frizz. That being said, when I received this flat iron I was in between hairstylists (and still am) and was in need of a serious trim. So I waited until I went back home (Chicago) to get my hair trimmed with my amazing hairstylist/aunt.

A few weeks before I received this Vintage Nume Flat Iron, my Chi that I had for almost 5 years MELTED. Yes, you read that right, it MELTED. I don't know what happened or how it happened but it did and I'm glad I caught it before it really got ugly. But back to the real flat iron and super star. This beauty is made of 100% ceramic iron that helps give shine and keeps moisture in the hair's cuticle. It has a temp control dial and heats up in a few seconds so no need to wait around to do your hair. The iron design is curved at the edges to use as a curling iron too. And it comes with a 3-year warranty. How awesome is that?

Let's get down to the real important stuff like how it worked on this SUPER noodle head Glammie. Well, after blow drying my hair and having no products in it, I sectioned my hair and got started. Now I have a lot of hair but it's thin so it took about 15-20 minutes to do it. That might sound like a lot of work to some folks but once I flat iron and style, I won't have to use the iron again for a few days. Most of the time I have to do 1 section of hair twice but with Nume I only had to do the section once. My hair was left so silky smooth and with no flyaways which I hate!

At the time I was working at Sephora and everyone at work thought I had permed my hair or had done Kertain. NOPE it was all done with the Nume Vintage iron that I have now had for a few months and love. I have used it on some clients and they have purchased their own and have thanked me for introducing them to Nume. I highly recommend the Nume Vintage to all my Glammies.

The Vintage is available in three colors purple, pink, and black. $145 Nume was nice enough to share a SURPRISE discount code with my Glammies. Enjoy!
