GOSH Lip Lacquer

This lip lacquer is a very unique product.  The packaging looks like a nail polish bottle.  Inside there is a typical slant tipped applicator which makes it easy to apply to your lips.  The formula itself smells like watermelon and not chemical like at all.

Colour 006 Funky Lips

The product is like a combination of a lipstick and a lip gloss.  It is highly pigmented and I found the colour a little too bold for my liking.  The product also has the shine of a lip gloss.

 The formula feels so nice on the lips.  Not sticky or tacky and not dry.  I found the colour lasts for hours if not eating or drinking.  Overall, I liked this product and would love to try it in a more subtle colour next time.

I received free product from ChickAdvisor to facilitate this review.

GOSH Double Precision Mascara

I absolutely love the GOSH Double Precision Mascara!  I have tried many mascaras over the years from drug store brands to high end brands and this is by far my favourite mascara to date.

 I look for a mascara to enhance my natural lashes without making them look too dramatic or "made up".  This mascara does just what I want.  The formula is not as wet as other brands I've tried which I think helps to prevent my lashes from sticking together.  My lashes look full, thick and voluminous.

I like that there are two wands in this product.  One bigger wand for the upper lashes and a smaller wand for the lower lashes.  It really helps to have these different sizes to adequately reach all the lashes.  This mascara stays put all day with no flaking or smudging.  It is also easy to wash off with soap and water.  Overall, I would definitely recommend this mascara to others to try.  Two thumbs up from me!

Wordless Wednesday

This past weekend my family celebrated my aunt and uncle's 40th Wedding Anniversary.  They are not big cake eaters so my mom and I created this for them using Rice Krispies:

China Glaze Don't Make Me Wine Nail Polish

I picked up China Glaze's "Don't Make Me Wine" colour on line at Nail Polish Canada.  As the name suggests it is a wine colour that is perfect for the fall season.  I would actually wear this colour in the summer as well it's so pretty and shiny.

The formula is really easy to work with and I found I just needed one coat of the polish to cover.  The below picture is just one coat of the polish with no top coat. It's shiny enough on its own!

Sweet Marie Bars

My family enjoys these sweet bars for a treat.  They are quick and easy to make in the microwave.  Enjoy!

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tbsp. butter or margarine
2 cups Rice Krispies

2/3 cup chocolate chips
2 tbsp. butter or margarine
  1. In a microwave safe bowl place peanut butter, sugar, corn syrup and butter.  Heat in microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute.
  2. Remove from microwave and add Rice Krispies.
  3. Press into a greased 8- or 9-inch square pan.
  4. For icing, melt chocolate chips and butter in a microwave safe bowl (I use a glass measuring cup) for about 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after each 20-30 second interval until mixture is melted.  Be careful as chocolate burns easily in the microwave! 
  5. Spread chocolate over bars and let cool in the refrigerator until set.
