My New Love… Leslie Sansone Workouts!

I wanted to share my favorite workout videos with you! They’re by Leslie Sansone, a fitness trainer that has walking based programs you can do in your living room. Her exercises range from beginner to intermediate, and are great for cardio/aerobic workouts. You can either buy her DVDs, watch her YouTube channel, or try out her walking app. I use YouTube.

My 3 favorite workout videos by her are:

  1. 15 Minute 1 Mile Walk
  2. 30 Minute Boosted Fitness Walk
  3. 45 Minute 3 Mile Walk

Try out her videos and let me know what you think!

Staying Safe In the Sun… Paula’s Choice Sunscreen!

I finally found a sunscreen that I enjoy wearing. Most are sticky and greasy, and run into my eyes. This one is much better.

It does give a glowy, subtle shimmer to the skin, so it’s not completely matte. That said, it’s not overly shiny. It goes well under makeup, and doesn’t sting my eyes or cause breakouts. It applies and blends easily into my skin.

I like that’s it’s SPF 50, water resistant and has antioxidants in the formula.

It is a little pricey -$17 for 5 ounces on Amazon. That said, I am willing to spend a little more on a sunscreen I will actually wear. Plus treatments for skin cancer cost a lot more!

Remember to wear your SPF!

Adding to My Makeup Routine… Fenty Beauty Brow MVP Pencil!

I decided to try a new step in my beauty routine -using a brow pencil! I went to Sephora, and a lovely associate helped me pick out a shade. We looked at several colors from different lines, and went with True Red from the Fenty Beauty Brow MVP line. It retails for $20 at Sephora.

I really like the product. The tip is nice and fine for penciling, and the formula is smooth and creamy. It blends well and looks very natural. I like the mini brush head on the other side. It helps smooth and blur the color.

The associate pointed toward a darker shade than I have worn in the past. While I’m not used to such a bold brow look, I think the shade matches perfectly. Below are two pictures – one inside and one outside, to show how my brows look in different lighting.

(Sorry about closing my eyes. It was bright outside!)

Overall, I am very pleased with my new brow pencil. I think it will look especially nice with bolder lipsticks.

If you are looking for a high quality brow pencil that comes in lots of shades, the Fenty Beauty Brow MVP is a great choice!

Fantastic Sale… Bath and Body Works Travel Size Body Mists!

I love purchasing mini perfumes from Bath and Body Works! That way, I can try as many scents as possible.

This weekend, they are discounted down to $3.50 each. A typical sale is $4 each, and full retail price is $6.50. When I saw the sale, I had pick up a couple and bring them home with me!

Champagne Apple & Honey smells like a robust mix between red apples, cherries and champagne. It is an amazing scent, and reminds me of orchard picking when Ben and I lived in Rexburg. I’m wearing this one right now!

Gingham reminds me of wildflowers and fresh squeezed orange juice. It also reminds of picking oranges with Ben at his childhood home in Santa Barbara. I love it when scent helps evoke cherished memories.

While I didn’t purchase them, I also liked Pretty As A Peach, Wild Blackberry Vanilla and Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte.

Take A Peek At My October Empties!

It’s empties time again! I love sharing what products I use up, and what I think of them. Without further ado, let’s dive in!


L’Oréal Sleek It Iron Heat Spray

Price: $3.97, Amazon

This is my second bottle of this heat protection spray. It works well in keeping my hair from getting damaged when I blow dry my hair. For the price, I think this works great!

Verdict: A Beauty Must Have!


Maybelline Snapscara

Price: $5.84, Amazon

This mascara is supposed to be easy to put on and easy to take off. Sadly, neither was the case. The wand was awkward to use, and I had to scrub just as hard to take off. The volume was decent, but lashes didn’t hold a curl.

Verdict: Bottom of the Waste Basket!


Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara

Price: $9.99, Walmart

I definitely liked this mascara much better. I like the wand, and the formula gives good length. That said, there’s not a lot of volume. It’s not surprising considering it’s advertised as a lengthening mascara. I love to layer it with L’Oréal Paradise or Two Faced Better Than Sex mascara. On its own, it’s average.

Verdict: Meh… It’s Okay



L’Oréal Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation

Price: $11.97, Walmart

I am on my second bottle of this foundation. It makes my skin look smooth and lasts all day. Plus I love the SPF 25 in it.

Verdict: A Beauty Must Have!


Juicy Couture Perfume

Price: $58, Ulta

This scent is a classic. It smells sweet and fruity, which are my favorite notes in a perfume. Ben says I smell like peaches when I wear it. I like varying my perfumes, so I will be buying something else next time. That said, it’s a good choice.

Verdict: Not Too Shabby!


Pudaier Glitter Liquid Eyeshadow

Price: $5, Wish

I love this so much that I already bought a replacement. It has a punch of glitter and looks great layered with other eyeshadows. You can read a more in-depth beauty review here.

Verdict: A Beauty Must Have!


Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment

Price: $59 (Full Size), Sephora

I got this sample for my birthday as a Sephora beauty insider member last year. This mask is spendy, but does do a pretty good job at spot treating acne. I can’t use it as a full face mask, as it irritates my skin. So there is that…

Verdict: Not Too Shabby!


Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream

Price: $68 (full size), Sephora

I also got this as a Sephora birthday present. Sadly I wasn’t impressed. It did a good job as a basic moisturizer, but nothing more. For the price, I don’t think it’s worth the money.

Verdict: Meh… It’s Okay

Sparkle and Shine with… Pudaier Liquid Eyeshadow!

There are some treasures I can’t help but share. This eyeshadow is one of those little gems. I love it so much that I am on my second tube!

This glitter eyeshadow is just beautiful. It has great shine, layers well on top of powder eyeshadow. And, not only does it work well – it’s only $5 on Wish!

I have tried four colors, and my favorite is #7, a gold shade, as shown above. My second favorite is #17, a baby pink.

Stila makes comparable liquid eyeshadow -I did a post on their Jezebel (Rose Gold) Liquid Eyeshadow. This works just as well, but for a fraction of the price! I definitely recommend.

If you would like to get 50% off your first order at Wish, you can use my referral coupon code:

If you would like to try this eyeshadow, you can buy it here.

(You can also buy it on Amazon for $7.79.)

Stay tuned next time, until my next beauty review!

XOXO,

Dana Maye

Take A Peek At My August Empties!

It’s that time again! Here are my empties for August.


Garnier Fructis Whole Blends Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner

I tried this shampoo/conditioner duo after loving the Honey Treasures version. I definitely like Honey Treasures better. This duo is a little too heavy and weighs down my hair.

Verdict: Into the Waste Basket


Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo

I got this travel size version and fell in love with the dry shampoo. It works well to soak up oil without getting my scalp too gritty. The scent is nice too. I will definitely be repurchasing!

Verdict: A Beauty Must-Have!


And that’s it for today!
