Revlon ColorStay Makeup Review

My sister is visiting for a few weeks and brought with her everything from her dorm. Though she doesn't often wear makeup, I noticed she's been using Revlon ColorStay foundation and decided to try it. I've been struggling with the right tone for my skin lately with everything looking too beige or too dark. Some foundations look like I slathered paste on my face or rub off all over the place.

The Revlon ColorStay foundation I used was "ivory" and meant for normal/dry skin and it looked exactly how I wanted it too. My skin looked smooth, fresh, and younger. I'm thrilled! When I tested it out, it was around 10pm and I wore it to bed.


The photo below is from this afternoon, before washing it off, so about 18 hours after applying it. Amazingly, it looks just like how I applied it last night. It truly is "colorstay."


One thing I really like is that I didn't use a primer or concealer or moisturizer before applying it. What you see is just foundation, blush, lipstick, and mascara (clearly I need to touch up the lipstick). That's it. How's that for an easy way to get ready in the morning?!

I'm headed to the store later today to get myself some of this foundation. It's that awesome.

eSalon.com Hair Color Review

It's now May 2014 and since my original review, I've had a chance to fly out to eSalon and see how orders are processed, learn the right way to apply color, and find out the differences between box color and eSalon color.  I learned a lot and have a totally different perspective now and would definitely recommend giving eSalon a try. When you order from eSalon, be sure to upload a current, well-lit photo of your hair and don't hesitate to ask their color experts for advice. The eSalon team are experts. Let them help you find the right shade and apply color correctly. It's a learning process if you're used to box color products. Last August, I tried  eSalon . At the time, I found the color was fine in that it was even and matched what I had seen online for that shade, but it wasn't really what I was going for. eSalon's customer service was helpful, with a colorist calling to explain how their product differs from what I buy in-store and the risks of g

Garnier Olia Hair Color Review

BzzAgent sent me a coupon to try Garnier Olia haircolor and I was super excited to try a new color. Anyone who knows me knows that I've been coloring my hair since I was 13 years old. I've tried many shades from bright blue, purple, and fire engine red to pricey complex process salon dye jobs. I've stuck to mostly brown shades for the past couple of years and wanted a change. Most of my adult life, I've used either reddish tint or bolder rusty reds, so it seemed like a fun idea to go back to that for a while. Honestly, it was a little challenging to pick a shade I wanted to try because my experience with box color "light" and "medium" seems different from the example photos on Olia boxes. The brown and red shades look darker than what I would call "light," for example. At Walmart, there were 14 of the 24 Olia shades in stock, which narrowed down my choice. Since I was fearful of trying any light colors in case they were too light for

Pottery Barn Kids Lunch Bags: Cute, but Annoying

When my daughter transitioned to "big kid school" this fall, I bought her a personalized lunch bag from Pottery Barn Kids. This was our first time having to send lunch to school, so I wanted her to enjoy carrying the bag and also have it be practical. She's just turning 4, so it was important that she be able to open the bag herself and carry it from the car to the lunch cart without assistance. Pottery Barn Kids offers a slew of fabric patterns and four bag styles. Penny picked the MacKenzie Chocolate Zebra classic lunch bag , which is a fairly standard size and shape lunch box. We paid $7 to have her name embroidered on the bag, which I figured was worth the price to ensure her box isn't mixed up with another kid's lunch. I let Penny pick the font and thread color and ordered online. Pottery Barn Kids Classic Lunch Bag Our classic lunch bag has now been used every weekday for nearly three months, but it looks more like a year old. It's still functio
