Make up Factory USA High Quality Cosmetics: Beauty Product Review #BirthdayBeat

Make up Factory is a dermatologically approved and cruelty-free makeup line made in Germany.  The company seeks to provide high-quality cosmetics for individuals throughout the world.
I had the opportunity to use their makeup and wanted to share a review.  Last weekend was perfect!  I celebrated my birthday and needed a new look.
Make up Factory shipped the International Eye Palette, Color Perfection Lip Liner, and Long-wearing Luxury Lipstick.  When I opened the package the products looked amazing.  Each item was rich in color and texture.  This is very important to me because I seek products that compliment my mocha skin tone.  Some cosmetics brands have beautiful shades but the pigment is not visible.
I applied the eyeshadow and realized it doesn’t require a lot of powder on the brush.  This is important because I accidentally brushed too much shadow over one eye!  The same concept should be used for the other two products as well.  I didn’t use a hard application with the lip liner, and the lipstick was beautiful.
If you’re searching for a cosmetics brand that will provide the appearance of a Pro-Makeup Artist, visit Make up Factory USA.

Get The Biz: Easy Laundry Tips and How To Remove Harsh Stains

This is an exciting time of the year.  We have college football games, holiday parties, and charity events.  But, let’s talk about the elephant in the room and that’s stains.

All of the delicious food and travel can be a breeding ground for loose debris on clothing.  That means laundry duties are extended beyond normal time constraints.

Unless you want to spend quality time at the dry-cleaners (which is no fun) knowing how to clean your clothing can be an advantage.  The first step is to understand there’s a difference between general washing and stain removal.  It’s advised that stains are treated prior to washing.

Biz is a stain and odor eliminator. Not only does it enhance the color in clothing but the product removes stains.

The Stain Removal Process:

To eliminate harsh stains such as blood, grass, grape juice, or chocolate pretreat the area with a small cape of Biz Stain and Odor Eliminator.  Wet the stained area and gently rub the liquid (Biz) in the fabric.  Place the items in the washing machine with your normal detergent and let it dry.  It’s just that easy to remove stains!

Unlike other stain removal products, Biz does not leave a clear film on clothing. Having the right products and strategies in place makes laundry day easy. Also, don’t forget to use clothing baskets and a hanging rack for gentle items.

Purchase Biz Stain and Odor Eliminator at Amazon or Target.

Summer Debris and Laundry with Biz Stain and Odor Eliminator

Has anyone ever noticed how the summer months can wreak havoc on your family’s clothing?  I will answer this question and gently raise my hand.

Between playdates, swim lessons, and hanging out at the park all of this outdoor activity can be harsh on fabrics.  Of course, we don’t want to let a little debris get in the way of enjoying life but laundry day can be a dreaded event.

From my experience, it’s vital to have the right products when treating your clothing.  I have committed to reading labels and searching for detergents that enhance the color and remove harsh stains.

Have you heard of Biz detergent booster?  It’s the ultimate stain and odor eliminator.  I use a simple laundry process when incorporating Biz detergent booster into my routine:

  1. For tough stains such as makeup, coffee, or ketchup; pre-treat the surface with Biz Liquid.  Place a small amount on the stain and let it sit for a few minutes.
  2. On normal laundry days, add your load to the washer with the use of regular detergent and a cap of Biz Stain and Odor Eliminator.

The end result of either process was brighter, stain-free clothing with no lingering odors.  If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself!

Biz Stain and Odor Eliminator can be purchased at Publix, Piggly Wiggly, or Kroger.

Sasee Chic Online Boutique: Ava and Precious Earrings Product Review

Everyone has a go-to accessory!  It’s the one fashion item that completes your outfit.

My go-to accessory on any given day would be earrings.  If I moved to an island and could only take five items I would pack a t-shirt, mascara, lipstick, sneakers, and earrings.

For me, earrings complete my total look.  They’re small and dainty with a huge impact!

Ava Seed Bead Earrings

 

Earrings are also an affordable way to refresh my wardrobe.   Every season I try to create a capsule closet collection and one way to switch up any look is with a pair of earrings.  They come in a variety of colors and shapes.

I have collaborated with Sasee Chic to help everyone create a stylish look.  Sasee Chic is the newest affordable online boutique that believes in confident women.

PBFit All Natural Peanut Butter Powder: Healthy Product Review

Let’s pause for a moment to talk about health and fitness.  This topic’s important not just because it’s almost swimsuit season.  Being healthy has a huge impact on our well-being in terms of living well.  A few of my fellow Instagram buddies made the suggestion of drinking meal replacements in the mornings to shed a few pounds.

If you’re a fitness enthusiast we all know the unappealing taste of meal replacement powders.  Yuck.  PBFit has created a new powder that sheds pounds with the delicious taste of Peanut Butter.  This yummy powder can be added to smoothies, shakes, and waffle batter!

Product Review:

I received the product last month because I am eager to shed a few pounds before summer!  My morning routine includes drinking a smoothie to ensure that I’m getting the right amount of fruits and vegetables.  I also love peanut butter and this was an easy option as a mid-morning snack.

The flavored powder tasted delicious and I can’t wait to create more recipes with the mixture.  We all know that eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich has the same amount of calories as eating a candy bar.  PBFit has 90% less fat and it’s made with real peanuts.

Let’s take this fitness journey together and try PBFit recipes.  It’s a fun and easy way to get fit and eat well too!

Major Lifestyle Tip: Biz Stain and Odor Eliminator for Laundry Needs

Recently, my husband and I closed on building our new home.  With all of the excitement that surrounded moving and packing, there was a big concern with doing laundry.

Our family had piles of jeans, socks, and sweaters that needed to be cleaned!  Laundry is not the most exciting task and dreaded on most days.

My home is filled with boys (gasp) and that means dirt from the playground and leftover crumbs from snack time.  Having a product like Biz Stain and Odor Eliminator made my task a lot easier!

 

Product Review:

This magical formula lifted those afterschool stains in a snap!  I sorted my laundry and proceeded with the normal wash schedule.  After turning on the machine and adding detergent, I used a small cap of Biz Stain and Odor Eliminator.

Biz was great in terms of boosting our laundry and left our clothes smelling amazing!

Another small fact is that Biz Stain and Odor Eliminator is multipurpose.  What does that mean?  It can be used to clean the bath tube, kitchen, or patio. This is a double win for my family due to maintaining the various high traffic areas of our home.
