Achieving Healthy Holiday Skin with Neutrogena

Hey Luvs!

I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I am so excited about today’s post! I partnered with Neutrogena to bring you a #HolidayHealthySkin makeup look, but before I list the products I used, I also wanted to share my thoughts on the #healthyskin products. I am not sure where you all are located, but if you are located in the Northeast…I’m pretty sure you can all agree that the weather has been wreaking havoc on your skin. With the harsh cold weather and depending on the ingredients that are in your makeup, it might be causing more harm than good for your skin.

Neutrogena is one of my absolute favorite go-to makeup brand. Not only are they the #1 Dermatologist Recommended skincare brand, they have been providing consumers with health and beauty improvements for over 50 years.
I was so thrilled when Neutrogena sent me a couple of products from their Healthy Skin line. I love the fact that Nuetrogena Healthy Skin provides a beautiful natural coverage that is non-greasy and lightweight formulated with antioxidants such as Vitamin E, Natural Soy and Feverfew. I definitely needed a makeup product that would help improve my skin as I wear it throughout the day.

The look I wanted to recreate was Kerry Washington’s Deep Plum red carpet look. I love Kerry Washington....she is one of my favorite celebs. Not only is she beautiful, but I love the way how she carries classy! To achieve Kerry's look. I listed the following Neutrogena products I used and their benefits:

Healthy Skin Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 15 

Optical modifiers help minimize the look of imperfections plus the formula contains a Natural Soy skin-enhancing ingredient, shown to provide anti-oxidant benefits.

Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 20   

The Broad Spectrum SPF 20 formula, with an exclusive antioxidant blend, works to visibly  improve luminosity, tone and texture for healthier looking skin.

Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer  

The non-greasy, lightweight formula glides onto skin providing silky-smooth, natural-looking coverage. The unique hydrating core is designed to instantly quench skin.

Nourishing Eye Liner  

Long-lasting eye makeup finish that won't budge. Subtle light diffusers make the whites of eyes appear whiter, while olive oil and rainforest shea butter add nourishment. Plus the built-in sharpener gives precise smudge-proof eyeliner application and the contoured smudger softens and blends for a variety of eye makeup looks, including a smoky eye.

Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow 

This powerful combo includes a built-in primer to help prevent creasing and smudging with long-lasting beautiful color to enhance the eyes. Tested to provide up to 12 hours of rich, nourishing color, the formula is infused with vitamins and skin-nourishing conditioners for the delicate eye area. 

Healthy Volume Mascara 

Instantly builds lash volume by up to 400%. This formula, with a touch of olive oil, penetrates and helps plump the core of each and every lash. And sweet almond protects the outside of your lashes. 

Healthy Skin Blush in Rosy 

Enriched with Vitamin C and botanical conditioners, our dermatologist-tested blush is designed to blend evenly and instantly enhance your skin's healthy glow. The powder technology incorporates advanced gel systems for easy application and soft feel. 

Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Deep Plum 

Made with fruit extracts, along with mango and shea butter, our dermatologist-tested, balm-like formula glides on easily, providing a wash of moisturizing color. In addition, the twist up package allows for perfect application each time – no sharpener required.

Neutrogena was nice enough to provide a promo code HEALTHYSKIN25 that allows my readers to get 25% of their total purchase at check out on
Honestly, I had so much fun recreating Kerry's Deep Plum look...I decided to also do her Soft Smokey Eye look. I needed the Healthy Skin Blush in the color Vibrant and the Moisture Smooth Color Stick in the color Almond Nude to complete the look. So I ran to the nearest drugstore to purchase the items. I also thought it would be cool to create a Neutrogena inspired commercial to showcase the look.  I will definitely post this video over the weekend, so stay tuned.

So, what do you guys think? Did I nail Kerry’s look? Leave me a comment below :)

The Rosaire Harmonie Women's Leather Wallet from Eva Leather

Hey Luvs!!
I hope you all are having a wonderful December! I can't believe that Christmas is in 10 days....I don't know about you all, but I still have quite a bit of gift shopping left to do. With that being said, I hope this post will help those who are still trying to decide on what to give as as gift.

A couple of weeks ago, I happily accepted a collaboration with Eva Leather and they sent me a beautiful Rosaire Harmonie Women's Leather Wallet for me to review. Before I get into my review on this wallet, let me give you a little info on Eva Leather.

 Eva Leather is a fashion retail company that delivers leather goods directly to consumers around the world. Founded in 2012, Eva Leather Co. Ltd has offered customers a perfect way to shop a wide selection of fashion leather goods at affordable prices. From fashion handbags to designer inspired bags you will have the choice to find the perfect bag that fit your wishes.

When the wallet arrived, I noticed that is was packaged in a way that it would be protected. It was enclosed in an orange cloth pouch and then packed in a vibrant orange box. The wallet is made of genuine togo leather (cowhide). The wallet I received was from the Rosaire collection in the color khaki and it had one main pocket to hold bills and two additional pockets. To ensure that all contents in the wallet would be secure, the wallet had a silver button where a leather strap can be looped through to guarantee closure. The wallet also came with a removable zip enclosure change purse with slots that can hold up to five credit/bank cards.

I love the simplicity of this wallet. Not only is it made well, but it's slim, sleek and very functional. The wallet is roomy enough to hold my cellphone as well as the removable change purse. It definitely can be paired with any handbag that is in my closet. Guys..I am very happy with this wallet. I definitely believe this wallet will give me a solid two years of wear.

If you haven't already, please check out Eva Leather's me... you will not be disappointed. Not only do the have wallets, but the have handbags and belts in all different colors, patterns, textures...ect. I myself have a couple items from the website that are on my wish list.  You can also check them out on Instagram (@evaleather) if you would like to just take a quick view at some of their products. 

Leave me a quick comment below if you guys have any questions or if you have purchased any items for Eva Leather in the past. 

Happy Holidays!!
