Today I checked my mail to find my PinchMe box finally came it! Some reason this one took quite a few weeks to get but that’s OK because it has full size make up in this box! What girl doesn’t just love lip gloss and eye liner! Inside I found a full size tube of Cover Girl lip gloss #710 Berryliclous (My favorite color)! Woohoo! I was also sent a full size Cover Girl Perfect Point Plus Pencil in #200 Black Onyx. What’s really nice about this eye pencil is that it’s self sharpening and easy to apply! Also, it’s water resistant which is a plus! I thought I was being sent a coupon for a free Cover Girl So Lashy Mascara but instead I got a $2 off coupon so I might buy it but not sure. Also, as you can see from the pictures I was sent a foundation sample card with small bits of Cover Girl foundation in each foil. That’s not my favorite kind of sample to get in the mail because it’s a one time use sample but I guess it’s good for color matching. Other than make up I was also sent a deluxe size sample of Olay body wash, Color Grabbers and a really nice dish rag. If you’d like to start getting free samples from PinchMe in the mail you can sign up HERE.

I kept seeing this advertised in my Facebook News feed as a sponsored, all over YouTube and other places, so finally, I gave in an had to try it for myself! This stuff seems to have taken Japan by storm and now it’s making it’s was to the U.S. Well, personally I’m not terribly impressed with this product. Maybe it just takes getting use to with applying and I didn’t find it lasted 10 hours. I’d rate it for more teenagers because it’s along the lines of something you’d find at the local drug store. I’ve tried it a few times now, it’s very messy and thick. I recommend using a lip brush to apply it because if it applies crooked that’s the way it’s going to stain your lips! Use caution applying it because if it get s on your cheek, fingers or hands it’s staining those too!! So be careful! Another thing I’d like to point out is that it took a month for me to get my order in the mail because it was mailed using China Post. I had no idea when I ordered it from Amazon that it was actually shipping from China. I did a bit of online research into this lip stain and found out that if you don’t want to keep it on the whole 10 hours that you can simply use any oil based make up remover and swipe it off. Well, I tried that this morning and it didn’t work well at all. My fingers are still stained. Now that I got all of that out of the way I’ll move on to explaining how to apply it. Like I said before I highly recommend using a lip brush, pick up a nice size bead/ball of it on the tip of the brush and carefully paint it on your lips by outlining your lips with it first. Be sure to apply it thick. The thicker the better because you’ll get more of an even color. What will happen if you apply it to thin is that it will be harder for it to stain your lips evenly and it won’t peel up well at all! Personally I don’t think you need to leave it on your lips an entire 10 mins to dry. I’ve tried both ways but in my opinion you can you tissue starting from the outer part of your lips moving in to remove it before it’s totally dry. I don’t personally always have 10 full minutes to stand in the mirror with my mouth open. That’s why I use the tissue (because it’s only about 80% dry most of the times) when I remove it. The only advantage to leaving it on the full 10 minutes is that you’ll get a deeper darker shade. Once you peel it off check your teeth for any residue and give your finders a look to see if you need to wash them to try to remove any stain. If you did get stain on your fingers or hands try an oil based make up remover to remove it and hope for the best. Once you’ve applied it and peeled the dried layer off simply apply any lip gloss, Chap Stick, etc. of your choice. Also, I’d like to point out I did NOT get this as a free sample in the mail for review. I saw it, wanted to try it, so I bought it. If you’d like to order some you can find it on Amazon here for ONLY $3.95 (select “same size” for the size option!!) for all 6 colors with free shipping but fair warning, expect to wait a month to get it in the mail. The other options cost more for the same thing. Don’t know if it’s a mistake on the sellers part or what but it’s ringing up for only $3.95 and other sellers are selling the same exact thing for over $20!
These are pretty nice but don’t expect them to be high quality like your purchase from a dept store with real horse hair or something. These are nice brushes that are made with synthetic fibers. They apply makeup well and I’d describe it as the “smart choice”. Perfect for someone on a budget, a teenager, your first set of brushes. Etc. they come with a gorgeous carrying case! You simply place the brushes inside of the case and set the lead on time. It has a magnetic closure so it practically closes itself when you put the two pieces together.

I truly love microcurrent and I’m going to tell you why! I’ve been using the 7e MyoLift Microcurrent Machine for about 8 weeks now and the results are amazing so I wanted to take the time to share my experience and post my own personal review! Being a full time Mommy it took me a while to find the time to be able to actually sit down and wright this blog review but here it is! I must confess, I was actually going to look into plastic surgery for the wrinkles that were developing around my eyes and the hooded eye lids I was beginning to develop but decided to try microcurrent first so see what kind of results I could achieve with that first. I’m honestly so excited with my results I’m going to skip the consult with the plastic surgeon! My face has more of a “toned” look to it now, my skin is much tighter and firmer! My eyebrows appear raised and my eyes have more of an open awake look. The issue with the hooded eyelids I was developing all but went away and so did the crow’s feet around my eyes! I feel I almost have the appearance of Botox without the dreaded “frozen” look! To fit the MyoLift into my schedule I use it when I’m doing my morning cardio walking on the treadmill while my baby is playing with her toys. You can also use it while your watching t.v. at night. The unit is cordless so you can just set it next to you on the couch. You do need two hands to use it though. Because the probes are so small you can easily get around your eyes and lips unlike with the NuFace where you have to purchase an expensive attachment to go along with an already pricy unit.
7e Myolift – Microcurrent Face Lift & Facial Stimulation Device
The beauty with microcurrent is that it enables you to be able to “work out” the facial muscles. I mean, let’s face it, we all know how important it is to work out our bodies so why do we skip the facial muscles??! Well, before we never had a way to work out those muscles until now! With age the facial muscles get soft and begin to sag the same as your triceps would. Not good! In addition to working out the facial muscles and keeping your face toned microcurrent actually stimulates new collagen growth. Collagen is something else we unfortunately lose with age. By re-growing collagen it re-plumps the fine lines smoothing them out again and softens deep wrinkles! Think of collagen as the fillers people pay to have injected in their faces for cosmetic reasons but doing it this way is 100% natural!
Many professional estheticians on YouTube also highly recommend this machine, which was what helped me decide to purchase it. This is the exact same unit many estheticians use on you when you book a treatment with them.
Is it hard to use? Nope! The 7e MyoLift is very ease to do a treatment on yourself. Here is an instructional video to show you how easy it is:
This video explains more about the unit and demonstrates how it can be used in a professional setting like a salon:
Another huge plus about the 7e MyoLift is the price point and the fact that it’s a professional grade microcurrent unit! Being priced at only $269 the average house mom can actually afford it without stressing over the cost! For comparison sake, if you were to go to a doctor’s office and schedule a microcurrent apt you’d spend close to $100 on one session. Going off those kinds of numbers this unit pays for itself after just 2 treatments!!
Just what does “professional” mean any way? It means this unit is meets the requirements to be used in a professional setting (such as by a professional esthetician in a salon selling sessions/treatments) but has been determined safe for home use also. So there you have it! Now you know why I always shop for “professional grade” when I’m in the market for a beauty device.

I did not get a discount or free unit in exchange for this review. I just love it so much and I’m so excited with my results I wanted to share.
