Upcoming Product Reviews

I have been swamped lately with products sent to me by companies. I take my time in reviewing these products. For example, I don't do a review on a product unless I have used it at least a month or more. Especially with skin care products, it takes time to build a sensitivity to a product. It also takes time to see improvement in the skin from a product. I offer my true opinion of the product and what it delivers. If I don't believe in the product I will tell you it's crap. The reason I started this blog was to help other woman make educated choices on what beauty products they purchase. I have been duped by many department store counters, you know who you are! I have been pulled in by dreamy marketing and commercials promising the world. I have spent a lot of my hard earned money on crap. So girls, I speak the truth here at Pretty in Pink Gloss. I am a New York girl who doesn't like being fooled. I am on a mission to bring you the truth on what products work and what doesn't. I have read countless books, magazines, chemistry books on skincare, articles on toxic skin care ingredients, countless dermatology books and articles. Here is a list of upcoming reviews that will be detailed and in depth. I promise you my true opinion. I was sent these products in an exchange for a review on my blog. I was not paid for any of these reviews. So here they are.

1. Misikko Hana Hair Dryer and Shine Shield Serum

2. Sibu Skincare products

3. Skintactix- a line for acne

4. Murad Anti-aging system

5. PMD- Personal Microdermabrasion System

6. Nu Brilliance Microdermabrasion System

As you can see I am a little backed up on reviews.

These reviews will be posted this week and I look forward to your questions.

Maybelline Baby Lips Balm

I am a lip balm fanatic in case you didn't know. My lips tend to be dry like the Sahara Desert year round. It doesn't help that as you get older your lips loose there volume and hydration. So when I came across a new line of lip balms from Maybelline called Baby Lips, I was super excited to say the least. It claims to visibily renew lips and make them baby soft in 4 weeks. It also contains an SPF of 20 which is vital to keeping lips looking young. I have yet to purchase these little bad boys but I have done my research on where there the cheapest. They cost 3.99 each but are 3.49 at Target. I will be purchasing one this weekend and will do a proper review. There are 6 different flavors, peach kiss, peppermint, cherry me, pink punch, grape vine and quench. Has anyone else seen or tried these lip blam? If so I would love your opinion on them.

My current favorite drug store products

I have really been loving products from the drug store lately. Walgreens and Rite Aid have become my Sephora and Ulta dupes. I have always been a why pay more kind of girl. So here is a list in no certain order of some really great products at the drugstore:

1. CoverGirl Cheekers Blush in Natural Rose- A universally flattering rosey pink. It gives a pretty rosey glow without looking like a clown. It's super blendable and stays on all day.

2. Rimmel Bronzer Natural Bronzer in Sunlight- A matte bronzer that gives the right amount of bronze to the cheek without looking orange. It stays on all day and is flatterg to fair to medium skin tones.

3. CoverGirl Single Eyeshadow in Mink- A light shimmery brown that is a great crease or all over lid color. This is a really nice color for fall.

4.Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup- I was very impressed with this foundation. It's a creamy makeup but feels light on the skin. It blends effortlessly and gives a glow to the skin. It's an anti-aging makeup so it won't settle into fine lines. It plumps the skin for a more youthful appearance.

5. Revlon Matte Blush in Perfectly Peach- The name says it all. This is one of the best peach blushes I have ever tried. It blends amazingly in to the skin and it's the perfect color peach. It's not to orange or coral its the perfect peach. I get alot of compliments when I wear this blush. It's matte so it stays on all day and keeps from settling in your pores.

6. Revlon Color Stay Eyeshadow quad in Coffee Bean- This quad has the best brown eyeshadows I have ever tried. This is my go to quad for a brown smokey eye. The colors are georgous and last all day. There super blendable and have a nice finish. I like this quad over any department store eyeshadows.

Well that's it for now. I would love to know some of your favorite drugstore products.
