Contests

Fashion Show
My daughter and I were given the opportunity to try Suave’s Professionals Moroccan Infusion Moroccan Argan Styling Oil and House of Harlow 1960 Sunburst Stud Earrings with White Stingray Leather as a Princess Perk (this means Suave sent it to me in exchange for a review).  We took this as an excuse to have our own Mother/Daughter fashion show at home.  My daughter is 4 so her picture taking skills are not the best but we had fun playing dress up and trying to do our hair different than we normally do.

I sampled Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Moroccan Argan Styling Oil.  I have to say it has a very pleasant smell and the oil calmed my frizzy hair and made it very manageable.  My hair had a very nice shine to it and felt very soft.  I have to say I was concerned about putting an oil in my hair but was surprised by the way it worked and made my hair more manageable and soft and shine as if I was one of the models in Fashion Star.

The House of Harlow 1960 Sunburst Stud Earrings with White Stingray Leather were beautiful and they gave great detail to how they were put together.  The earrings themselves were rather heavy but once I put them in they were comfortable and I did not notice how heavy they were.  I usually only wear small stud’s so this was a change for me.

I have to say that the most impressive thing out of the two products was the Suave Moroccan infusion line.  I will be looking into it when I go to the store.  I would like to try the entire Suave Moroccan Infusion line because I loved how it made my hair look and I really loved the smell.

My desire to try the entire line must have been told to Suave by a fortune teller.  They actually emailed me and asked me if I would be willing to give away a complete set of the entire Suave Moroccan Infusion line to a lucky Red Carpet Mamas reader.  In exchange for hosting that contest they would send me a complete set also!  Win-Win!!  (See the Rafflecopter below for how to enter)

My daughter and I enjoyed watching Fashion Star and we were so happy that Hunter won.  We were watching and saying what we thought each other would look pretty in.  It was a nice night of mother/daughter fun and entertainment.  My daughter has asked each evening since if we can have another fashion show.

Disclosure:  I was given a bottle of the Suave Moroccan Infusion Moroccan Argan Oil and the House of Harlow earrings in exchange for writing this post.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.  I am additionally receiving the entire Moroccan Infusion line in exchange for hosting the giveaway.

Lush is one of my favorite stores and if you haven’t heard yet. Lush has introduced a new makeup line called Emotional Brilliance. I wandered into my Lush store at Penn Square Mall and was amazed at all the bright new colors. You’ll find liquid lip colors,liners and creme eyeshadows in a variety of colors to suit whatever mood your feeling that day. According to  Lush co-founder Rowena Bird who also invented this new line, you should choose colors based on how you feel, not what you are wearing. Not sure how to decide? Lush has made it easy and has come up with spin game to help you decide.

Today I want to talk about two of the products in particular that I was given to try.

Eyes Right  – Fresh Wheatgrass Mascara. I noticed that it goes on pretty easy and there is no clumping for me. I had to get used to the smaller brush, but hey I’ll get used to anything that gives me great looking lashes. Here is some info about the product.

When we asked women which mascara they used, we were rather startled when the overwhelming answer was “the one that hurts my eyes the least”. We knew we had to create healthy mascara, that’s actually good for your lashes and the skin around your eyes, so product inventor and LUSH co-founder Rowena got to work in her lab. She came up with this beautiful, gentle mascara using a fresh wheatgrass base which conditions, nourishes and strengthens the lashes. Japan and Carnauba waxes help the color set, thicken and hold on so it won’t smudge when you’re at the gym or in the rain.

FEATURES

  • More for your money: Each bottle holds 5 grams of mascara, where the average tube only holds 1-2 grams and has larger packaging.
  • Fresh mascara: Use within three months of the first use. Left unopened, the mascara will be good for 14 months. Most mascara is packed with 4-6 preservatives; ours contain only one.
  • Cruelty-free cosmetics: We still stand strongly in our fight against animal testing. Like always, our products and their ingredients were never tested on animals, only human volunteers.

Feel Younger Tint/Primer – I have never used cremes on my eyes this was something new for me. However I did noticed that when I applied this to my lids and then applied my eyeshadow over the top. It made my eyeshadow standout and it stayed on longer. It Retails for $18.95.

“We wanted a highlighting skin tint that would give a gorgeous glow wherever it was applied, so we started with a base of beautiful ingredients (as we like to do). Soothing oatmeal decoction, cocoa butter and some of the best oils for the skin, jojoba and almond oils are blended together for a nourishing base that’s good for your skin. Blended in is a pigment that reflects light, brightening cheek bones, brow bones, the inner eyelid or even your décolletage for a sexy glow.”

FEATURES

  • No mineral oil: We use beautiful, gentle oils that absorb easily into the skin to nourish and moisturize.
  • Vegan: Not only are we still against animal testing (we test these cosmetics on human volunteers) but our new skin tints Charisma and Feeling Younger are completely vegan.
  • Everyone can start Feeling Younger: This highlighting tint is unisex and suitable for all skin tones.

One of favorites products in the store are of course the bath bombs and soaps so I was very excited with they asked me to try the new Honey Farm gift set.

One sniff of the mouth-watering, honey-toffee fragrance of our Honey I Washed the Kids soap and you’ll fall head over heels in love. You won’t be able to live without it. That’s why we’ve given the scent to more products, including Honey Bee Bath Bomb, Soft Coeur massage bar and the latest, It’s Raining Men shower gel. Not only does it smell heavenly, honey is soothing on young, mature, dry and sensitive skin. We’ve packed all these scrumptious treats up into one box, plus our best-selling Butterball Bath Bomb for a gift that’s the bee’s knees.

What do you get?

  • Honey Bee Bath Bomb
  • Butterball Bath Bomb
  • Honey I washed the Kids Soap
  • It’s Raining Men Shower Gel
  • Soft Coeur (The Honeymooner) Massage Bar
