The beauty corner..

6 :07AM..  I could still sleep for another 30mins I’m sure
6 :37Am.. . Ahhh { Culkin style} it’s almost 6:40 get up get up Diana!!!!!! What you though you could sleep in on a Monday phshshs your out of your mind young lady!
6:40-6:55Am.. Realizing I’m out of my one-step cleanser darn! I have to go buy another bottle, Dropping everything in my way, this chocolate mint toothpaste was a waste of money it makes my tongue tingle in a bad way is that even possible! Maybe I’m allergic, and if I am why am I still using it . My god whats up with my hair?! Its flat honey that’s whats up…. Omg my eyes are so puffy.. was it the running? Did I have something salty yesterday? Is it the Maracuja oil? Perhaps , uh but I love that stuff I hope I don’t have to stop using it!
7am , Walking to my car with a banana in my right hand while my left hand is being shared by a protein mug and keys.
7:05am.. finally inside the car!!! Choosing what to listen to omg can’t decide I hate that feeling.. Do I want hummmmm..{gazing outside my car window going through all my CDs to decide , my neighbor catches me and gives me this “that girl is strange” look}… Blink 182 it is, Dang I forgot to make the bed, did I reply to my text message? No…. fast texting before starting my engine! Oh I forgot my lipstick!!! Ran back inside and grabbed it { I know whatever lol!} sprayed on perfume , rolled the windows down and,  let’s hit the road Jack…
I want to talk about some beauty products that I absolutely love! My daily make-up essentials fit in a preschooler’s pencil pouch …. Foundation, Blush, Lipstick, Mascara that’s it…. Oh but please don’t get me started with beauty products I go uber girly, a lot of this goes on OMG OMG!! Ahhhh’s Uhhhhh’s Ohhhh’s let’s face it,  it’s hilarious. My first beauty crush is;

Tarte Maracuja Oil,
Ingredients  Passiflora Edulis Seed Oil, Tocopherol.
What it does: Passion fruit oil has documented anti-inflammatory properties and can stimulate the production of fibroblasts, cells that make collagen… we all know what collagen is but I’m still telling you it’s the main structural protein of the various connective tissues in animals. As the main component of connective tissue, it is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up from 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. Therefore having abundant collagen makes up a beautiful firm skin, and who doesn’t want that? I sure do (wink wink)
My experience with the product; I slap on the oil before bed – let me just say oils are not for everyone, so if you haven’t had pleasant times with oils (I make it sound like a person) you might want to skip this product BUT before you do let me just say this; it’s a very light oil, It’s balanced perfectly, it’s not too thick and you get sufficient moisture …… I wake-up with velvety soft and hydrated skin, and not only that,  I know that all those antioxidants will benefit my skin in the long run. Please wait five minutes before hitting the pillows give your skin a few minutes to absorbed the product, if you don’t your tossing away a good product and money. I love this product!!!

Philosophy One-step Cleanser!
Okay this is such a practical product I call it “Brilliantly Lazy” I don’t hate removing my make-up but sometimes I’m so tired after a long day, and I hate that guilty “I didn’t wash-off my make up last night”  feeling, we’ve all done it …. This cleanser will bring our guilt to an end once and for all!
-Sodium Lauroamphoacetate: Acts as a mild surfactant that gently cleanses the skin without irritation or residue.
 -Meadowfoam Seed Oil: Lightly hydrates the skin leaving the skin comfortable, not pulled or tight.
-Sodium Trideceth Sulfate: Pulls dirt, debris, and makeup from the skin and dissolves them.
-Twelve-Essential Oil Blend (Including Rosewood, Sandalwood, Sage): Helps soften, soothe, and rejuvenate the skin.
My Take on the product: I LOVE this product! It does what it claims to do! After running a super white cloth over my skin I realized  ... NO make-up residue!!!!!!... awesome product! The smell? {Wrinkling my nose}… it’s not the best smell its very herbal, tea-like smell. It also doesn’t foam up but ultimately it does its job, if you still feel that the lack of foam makes you uncomfortable buy a facecloth and problem fixed! I adore this product…. for all you foundation lovers this has to be in your bathroom cabinet…

Last but not least,

 Revlon just bitten Lip stain! I naturally have this pink/brown lip color, not my favorite so I’ve always been a fan of stains they last all day without looking creamy and superficial. However after hours it seems as if I had a litter of kool aid , not attractive … did I mention how dry my lips get with certain lip stains yes its gross! With that said, let me tell ya this product is different!! It is very hydrating and the color stays on after having let’s say 3 cups of coffee a salad, chocolate hahaha! Oh how can I forget … this product is also very affordable .

Have an awesome Monday!!♥
