I have not written about any products on my blog so far, but I used these two new things, and they were incredible!! So, of course, I have to share with the Incredible Internets. The first is Wet n’ Wild Gel nail color. I received this as a free sample from Pinchme.com, and I was very skeptical!! Why? You ask….well, I have been using only Revlon ColorStay nail polishes for the past 10-12 years. I tried Essie, I tried Opi, but they did not match up to the long lasting-ness of Revlon. Revlon would last for a full 2 weeks for me, despite the fact that I wash dishes by hand almost every day.
So yes, I was not sure about Wet n’ Wild Gel at all, because in my mind, it was a “cheap” brand.
Well, was I surprised after 2 weeks…..Not only did it chip minimally, it outlasted Revlon by 2-3 days for sure, gave a really nice salon-like finish, and I loved the color they sent me!!! So, yes, I may have to change my nail paint brand, go buy some more colors :)
I became a HUGE fan of another product- LANCOME Sleep perfector cream. Again, I got a sample in the mail. Have not used any Lancome products ever! No, I am more of a CVS-brand, Pond's cream kind of person. Yup, ashamed to admit it.....well, maybe not really, that's what us Mommy-type Asians do:)
So I put this on at nght, just maybe 2 drops of it, and my face felt like butter the next morning- my pores looked like they had been evened out, there was a nice glow to my face, my fine lines (I refuse to term them wrinkles- I have noneJ) appeared “plumped out “/ less visible. Suffice it to say, I really could not believe it….the sample had about 3 uses worth, and my skin felt really good for about a week. I, of course, had to go online right away and check prices on Ebay, Macy’s etc etc…..Ebay had a lot of options, but I decided to go the legit way, did not want to risk getting a fake product, so went to Macy’s, splurged $94 (!!!!!) on Lancome Sleep perfector. I justified it to myself by calling it my Mother’s day gift, plus felt better because I was able to get a lot of other products from Lancome as free gifts- I think I got close to 10 smaller size products (including a tote bag and a cosmetics pouch). Now, now, I might just get hooked to all the other Lancome products, so I guess their marketing strategy is super successful :(
On the crafting front, I have been crazy busy, but will have to wait till next time to share more finished products with you!! I can share one though....it is the VIRUS BLANKET by Jonna Martinez, she has an awesome video tutorial. I have also done the shawl version of this, no pictures yet though, it still needs tassels. The blanket will make it to my Ebay store soon, in case you would like to call it your own :)
