Mallywood Eyeshadow Palette + Smoky Mama Mascara

First of all, how cute is the Mallywood packaging? It has glitz and glam written all over it! Infused with all things Mally, making it fun, fierce, and perfectly pink, the Mallywood collection is now available exclusively at Ulta stores and online at!

I tried two products from the collection. First, let's talk about the Mallywood Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette. Featuring Mally’s favorite picks of both matte and shimmer shades, this palette will transform you from daytime chic to evening glam. 

I love the velvety smooth formula that glides on and wears all day. Create endless looks with these shades: Fabulous (nude-peach shimmer) // Fierce (bronze copper) // Kind (warm brown shimmer) // Flirty (cool iridescent pink) // Passionate (aubergine) // Loving (rose gold shimmer) // Fearless (champagne shimmer) // Iconic (warm taupe).

How stunning is this palette? I love the versatility. You can play with these all day and they would work on any skin tone. They are also very pigmented and they blend with ease. This is one gorgois palette I will be reaching for all summer long.

Next up is Mallywood Smoky Mama Mascara, the perfect finish to a fierce smoky eye. Mally actually created this to replicate that smoky look and make it look believable with something you would never expect - mascara! Her secret used to be to take a regular mascara wand and trim the bristles down so far that you could barely see them. Now she has created her own magic wand.

Apply on the top lashline as usual (you can define every lash with this wand) then, it gets fun! As you apply to your bottom lashes, gently press the wand softly from side to side and barely touch the skin beneath them. The result? A smoky look using your mascara wand. Who knew?! Oh yea, Mally.

Goldfaden MD Physician Strength Skincare

Goldfaden MD is the first physician strength, dermatologist developed, natural skincare line in the industry. The highly efficacious, non-prescription skincare solutions utilize state-of-the-art technologies with active plant cells and anti-oxidant rich botanicals. I tried two products from the Goldfaden line and I am so impressed!

Sun Visor is a fast-absorbing, oil-free sunscreen mist that protects your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays. This unique product offers dual-action protection by delivering high-level UV filters to help prevent the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and dark spots. The advanced, ultra-light formula is free of fragrance and won't smear. 

This delightful mist will actually make you want to wear sunscreen! Not only does it deliver high-level UV filters, it also contains botanicals like organic red tea work to rejuvenate skin and provide antioxidant benefits. Apply 1-2 pumps onto your face and neck after moisturizing. If using with makeup, apply after your foundation application. In direct sun, apply frequently for optimal protection. It is definitely a beach bag must have!

I am also loving Facial Detox. This advanced purifying facial detox mask contains the soothing benefits of zinc oxide, sulfur, and camphor to effectively deep clean blemish-prone skin. It will also minimize the appearance of pores, soothe the skin, and give it an even, youthful-looking tone. It feels so good to draw out dirt and pore-clogging debris. 

Developed to be used as an overall facial mask, the formula works to unveil a clear-looking, radiant even-toned complexion. However, I also like using it as a spot treatment. Just apply to the affected areas and leave on for 10-15 minutes. This corrective mask soothes redness while drawing out bacteria and pore-clogging debris, revealing clearer, less irritated-looking skin.

Purifying with Derma E

Why do you need to add purifying products to your skincare routine? Specially designed for oily, active or urban skin types, purifying formulas work naturally to draw out toxins, replenish vital nutrients and restore the skin’s resistance to oxidative stress. Especially in the summer, you can use these products to get rid of sweat, oil, and toxin buildup for skin that’s extra fresh.

The Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask is a dual-action formula that purges pores of deeply rooted toxins, then exfoliates away micropollutants for glowing skin. This charcoal mask deeply detoxifies skin of harmful micropollutants in two ways: it can lift out dirt, oil, and bacteria to decongest pores as the mask dries; and it can exfoliate away dead skin cells and captured debris upon removal.

Apply generously to clean skin and leave on for 5 minutes or until the mask is completely dry. Moisten fingertips, then massage mask gently in a circular motion to activate exfoliants. Concentrate on areas of congestion such as nose, chin, and forehead. Rinse thoroughly, or remove with a damp cloth. I like to use this 1-2 times a week. My skin feels so clear after I use it.

Use the Purifying Daily Detox Scrub to lift away micro-pollutants and impurities for a fresh, healthy radiance. Gentle enough for daily use, this detox scrub lifts away micro-pollutants and impurities while promoting oxygenation for a fresh, healthy radiance. Doctor developed and clinically tested, this revitalizing formula contains some of the most powerful minerals and natural toxin fighters from the earth and from the sea. Apply a small amount to wet or dry skin and gently massage in circular motions. I love using this in the morning to really wake up my skin!

Budget-friendly haircare with genius marketing? That is tlw. TLW (three little words) is a haircare line making a name for itself (and their products) in the US, produce high-quality products at super affordable prices. Made exclusively in Melbourne by an industry veteran, TLW is an innovation in haircare systems developed for consumers with busy lives who demand multifunctional products.

I tried four of them. If you don't have time to worry about your hair, TLW products are designed to minimize the need to wash, giving you a longer and healthier result. Because ... you're really busy ... which brings me to the first product that I tried.

The I'm Really Busy Texturizing Spray will give your hair some oomph! This alcohol-free texturizing and volume spray is formulated with maltodextrin polymer to provide stiffness and humidity resistance without the addition of salt. 

The water-based formula helps to sculpt and style wet hair and provides a medium hold and stiffness when dry while also adding volume. The fact that they made a texturizing spray that contains no alcohol is pretty amazing. I love it.

For all you frizzy-haired girls and boys out there - this next one is for you. Let’s Get Naked Frizz Fighter is a serum designed to tame frizz and hydrate your hair. It helps smooth, condition and seal strands, leaving hair silky, shiny and frizz-free in any weather.

It is formulated with keratin and silk protein to increase manageability, hydrate and strengthen hair. This frizz-fighting serum also helps speed up drying time for silky, smooth results quicker. My hair is a frizz magnet in the summer months. I have been loving this easy to use serum.

Are you ready to say goodbye to split ends forever? Then let's get tacos. Let’s Get Tacos Treatment Oil is a hair oil that repairs hair from the inside out and helps seal split-ends for smooth, healthy-looking results. Formulated with grape seed oil, the treatment moisturizes, strengthens, repairs and adds shine while Kakadu plum oil provides UV protection and heat resistance. You can use it on wet or dry hair and it smells sooooo good!

Finally, what TLW describes as getting your hair drunk ... this highly addictive hair stuff is ready to party! This hair shot will have you drunk on good hair as it delivers an intense dose of moisture. Getting right down to the cuticle layer of the hair, this formula strengthens and improves elasticity, meaning less breakage.

The Better Skin Co.

The Better Skin Co. was founded in 2015 by trained aesthetician Natalya Rachkova and beauty industry veteran Murphy Bishop. Before becoming a sought-after skincare brand, Natalya was making miracle cream in small batches, and soon word of mouth spread. The indie beauty brand has surely grown and is now available at an ULTA Beauty Store near you!

I had the pleasure of trying three best sellers from The Better Skin Co. Let's start with the infamous Mirakle Cream (aka Genius in a Jar). This ingredient rich recipe contains beautiful ingredients like coconut oil, sea buckthorn, shea butter, cocoa butter, aloe, and soothing algae to help moisturize the skin. Peptides and hyaluronic acid help skin appear smoother, more youthful and radiant.

Better Skin Mirakle Cream is a one-stop, skin-loving, problem-solving, all-purpose cream. What can this genius in a jar do? How about reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increasing radiance and luminosity, hydrating the skin, or soothing dry skin? Not to mention it may even reduce the appearance of sun spots, age spots, and dark spots. It makes your skin feel wonderful and it is easy to see why Mirakle Cream has developed such a cult following.

We have the mirakles covered. Now for some magik. Lava Magik is a daily cleanser, exfoliating scrub, and revitalizing mask. It is made from skin cleansing volcanic lava from France, and enriched with nourishing calendula, sweet orange, grapeseed oils, cucumber, parsley, and chamomile. Use it to buff away dead skin cells for healthy and more youthful looking skin.

Although it can be used as a cleaner, a scrub, and a mask, I love using it as a scrub. I apply it to wet skin, and gently massage it into my driest areas for about 30 seconds. Then rinse. The result? Radiant skin! It's like I glow from the inside out after using Lava Magik!

Finally, if you are unfortunate enough to suffer from the occasional breakout, The Better Skin Co. has something for that too! Zit No More is a super strength zit zapper in an easy breezy rollerball. This wonder potion contains salicylic acid wrapped in three soothing essential oils. Just roll it over that pesky zit and wait for the magik to happen. I like to use it at night. By the time I wake up, the problem area has dried up and the area is soothed. It's pretty much amazing.
