Neutrogena Long Wear Review

Smokey Steel #30


I have never been one to try a new eye shadow. I always stayed in the browns and pinks range. Dark colors where something I never looked at twice. When I say dark I mean like blacks, grays or dark blues and greens.


When I became a member of the Crowdtap Neutrogena rewards program they sent me a full size sample of the long wear eyes shadow with built in primer to review.    

I opened it up and looked at the dark color and immediately got nervous. I have never done a smoky eye. I was a little worried. Turns out that on the back it tells you where to put what color and that made my nervous turn into excitement. I love painting with new colors so why should this be any different.   Right?

The texture of this eye shower is a little thicker than I am use to, but I guess that is why it stays on longer. The color gets on the brush easy and application on the lid is smooth.I would use and will use this eye shadow again and again. I’m going to check out the other colors that are offered. I love the way it feels on my skin on application and after a long day, the eye shadow stayed in place and looked fresh after hours.

The Great Deluge Book Review

The Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf CoastThe Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast by Douglas G. Brinkley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This was the longest book I ever attempted to read with the time I have available. It took me it feels like forever, but when I was reading it, I was down right beside myself with all the details from all the stories. If you want to be taken back to that time in history and if you can remember what you witnessed on TV at the time, then this book fills in the gaps of information you didn't know, or details you wanted to know but never found the answers.

TULIP by Instyler Review


This is my favorite tool    


Here I am, at the last installment of my amazing InSTYLER blogger dream. If you need to go check out the previous posts about the TopStyler, Ionic Styler and the MAX reviews you will find out how we got here to this amazing product. I still can’t believe that I was lucky enough to try theses. I love how curling and styling hair has just been so easy for me now.   #gotitfree #RSVPInstyler


The look of the Instyler TULIP was something I have never seen before now. It really looks like a tulip. Its not heavy and so simple to use. You have four curl types of curls to pick from, you can have Beachy waves, soft loose curls, medium body curls or tight striking curls. 

Unlike the other tools, this tool has 4 extra setting. The Rotation Button, Direction Switch, Timer Switch and the Power/Heat select. Each button with a setting option.





The Tulip came with this sizing-sectioning petal. It is more or less a bundler that will gather the max amount of hair to insert into the tulip. I didn’t question it. I did what the directions told me. VERY!!! Important that the strands of hair are combed and neat. If you put a sloppy strand in, your hair will not be able to curl right and your hair my get tangled.








I use a little product in my hair then put some hair in the spaces it told me, clicked the button and it sucked up the hair around a iron. It will double beep then hair is ready then I would pull the tulip down and the hair would fall out of the middle.

I was very pleased with my first curl.  I could not believe how great it looked and the next thing you know.. I did her whole head. I was done in 30 minutes. That would have taken me a hour and a half using a old curler. Curls hair in just a few seconds.


 If you think know that the InStyler TULIP tool is something you need in your beauty bag, I want to offer you a discount code that is good up until 1/31/15. If you go to the site www.rsvpinstyler.com and use code RSVP30. You will receive 30% off your order.  Sounds like a great deal to me .
