Glade Expressions Collection - BzzAgent

Hi everyone! As some of you may know by now I am a BzzAgent. As a BzzAgent I get invited to review products for free, ranging from cosmetics, skin care, food, and home fragrance. Last month I was sent coupons to purchase 2 Glade Expressions for free. I was very much looking forward to trying this collection  because I am always looking for non-plug in scented oils, and for a good bathroom spray that doesn't require you to spray a huge cloud of fragrance to cover the odor (you all know what I'm talking about!). Anyway! I picked up the Cotton and Italian Mandarin Fragrance Mist, and the Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice Oil Diffuser.

L'Oreal le Gloss Project Runway Limited Edition 2012 - The Temptress' Shine, The Mystic's Shine

It's been a while since I ventured into glosses, but I was highly intrigued by these 2 limited edition L'Oreal le Gloss Project Runway glosses. I have 2 other le Gloss lip glosses in Peach Fuzz and Watermelon Crush. All of these glosses are comparable to each other, which is good; I like consistency when it comes to a good thing. These glosses are not sticky, yet they are substantial, and have a vanilla scent to them, which is a refreshing change from the mint.

BzzAgent - Unreal 77 Candy Peanut Butter Cups

Hi everyone! As some of you may know from a previous post, I am a bzzagent. A BzzAgent receives samples or coupons to try out certain products ranging from beauty, food, and electronics. As a BzzAgent you are able to share your honest opinion about the product and at the same time get to try something new. As a BzzAgent, I was invited to join the Unreal Candy campaign and was sent coupons to purchase 1 free Unreal Candy and other coupons to share with friends and family that were Buy 1 get 1 Free. After many days of searching for individually wrapped Unreal Candy, I finally found it!! I picked up the Unreal Candy Peanut Butter Cups. At one point I was very tempted to pick up a huge bag from my local BJs, or Pharmacy, but I restrained myself, as I can tend to be a little finicky when it comes to my chocolate.

Magnetic Polish - Sinful Colors Sinfully Magnetic & Nails Inc.

Hey everyone! So, I finally experimented enough with my Magnetic Polish Collection that I thought I would share my thoughts with you. I know I'm a little late on the magnetic polish trend, but I was finally able to get my hands on the higher end ones and then conveniently found some Sinful Colors ones as well that I liked. First off, I bought the Nails Inc. Magnetic Polish in the colors: Whitehall and London Town. They happen to have been on sale at Sephora for $7 a piece (Originally $16 each). Then a few weeks later I walked into my local RiteAid (I also saw the display at Target) and saw that Sinful Colors came out with their own "Sinfully Magnetic" line, the first one I picked up was in the color Polar Opposites ($4.99, but I got mine for $4.50) and it had a star pattern magnet. Then, yesterday, I walked into my RiteAid looking for cough suppressant and decided to walk through the beauty aisle (how convenient) and found a NEW! Sinful Colors "Sinfully Magnetic" display this time with a snake skin pattern magnet ($4.99, but I got mine for $4.50). I couldn't resist and picked it up in the gorgeous color, Snake it Out!

Application Tip: The key to all Magnetic Polishes is to let the 1st coat dry completely and then apply a generous 2nd coat, and for the 2nd coat you have to do each nail one at a time. I usually leave the magnet on for 30 seconds because I am a bit paranoid that the pattern will not show in only 20 seconds. After applying the 2nd coat, let it dry completely before applying the top coat to make sure that you do not smudge or blur the pattern on the nail.
