Colors used: Nooner, Darkside & Blackheart

I used Trick on my whole eyelid and then created a bit of contrast by using Darkside in the outer corner of my eyes. I used Nooner to define my crease and smudged a bit of Blackheart along my lash line. And to finish off my look I applied Strange in the inner corner of my eyes to open them up a bit.

Using Veet Hair Removal Cream to remove arm hair

In April of last year I raved about the Veet Hair Removal Cream for Bikini & Underarms and I’ve been using it ever since to keep my bikini area a.k.a. Fun Beach all smooth and sexay.

Veet Hair Removal Cream for Bikini & Underarms review

But that’s not all I use it for. Last summer I also decided to try the product to remove the unsightly hair on my arms. Yes people, I’m a hairy woman. It’s bad enough that I have to tweeze my eyebrows every single day to prevent them from becoming Siamese twins and turning into a unibrow, but I’ve also been blessed with hair in unnecessary places, like for example on my arms. Especially in summer I get really self-conscious about those hairs, so one sunny morning in late August I decided to slather my arms in Veet Hair Removal Cream for Bikini & Underarms. I didn’t have anything to lose after all, except for hair, which was the whole point of trying the product on my arms in the first place.

I left the cream on for about eight minutes before scraping it off and getting in the shower. The result? Perfectly smooth hair-free arms! And no irritation whatsoever! My skin felt soooo soft, I couldn’t stop touching it. And the best part? It remained soft for DAYS! After a week or so the hair on my arms slowly started to grow back, but it didn’t feel stubbly at all. After two weeks I used the Veet Hair Removal Cream for Bikini & Underarms again, but I probably could have waited another week if I had wanted to.

Bottom line? The Veet Hair Removal Cream for Bikini & Underarms does a great job removing arm hair and is a godsend for women like me who want to get rid of unwanted body hair. I’ve been using the Veet Hair Removal Cream for Bikini & Underarms every two to three weeks since August and I’m pretty sure I’m hooked for life. That’s something worth sharing, don’t you agree?

Pretty polished nails in two minutes with the BE Creative Make Up Nail Brightener

I love my nail polish and I love my nail art, but let’s be realistic here, who has the time and energy to spend half an hour on their manicure every time they do their nails? That’s right, no one!

When I’m in a hurry and still want my nails to look polished and pretty I just reach for my BE Creative Make Up Nail Brightener. It’s basically a clear glossy top coat with a blueish tinge that brightens your nails and makes the pink look pinker and the white look whiter. So it creates a natural my-nails-but-better effect.

It takes me less than a minute to paint all my nails and it only takes another minute or so for the nail brightener to dry. So it’s perfect for those busy I-cannot-be-bothered-with-my-nails-right-now days.
