MAC Starter Kit Recommendations & Giveaway

I have had so many requests over the past year or so to record a MAC Starter Kit Video. If I was to go back in time to my first mac shopping trip what would I buy knowing what I know now sort of a video. Here are my recommendations! I’m also giving away all of these products – not mine obviously, new ones :) That makes 4 eyeshadows, 1 blush, 1 eyeliner, one lipstick and one lipgloss.

Best of luck if you’re entering! Thanks for watching.

Beauty Chat: Bust Creams

This is a bit of a weird topic for a beauty video but it has been on my mind lately. I assume there are others out there who have pondered on bust creams and a few who have dabbled with lotions and potions.

The product I have been  using is Palmer’s Bust Cream. It seems to work well. It makes my skin plump and fresh looking. I do wonder if it has any long term effects though.

Thoughts on bust creams?
