Not all of us really like long nails. Sometimes short and sweet is what you’re looking for. Although long nails might LOOK nice, they are sometimes cumbersome for everyday living. For those of us who like a short length, Broadway Nails has a Real Life French Nail Kit in “Real Short”.
The nails are really short, but they still have the look of a salon manicure. An added benefit is that they tend to stay on longer because of the shorter length. Application is made even easier with their patented self tab. You can use the tab to hold the nail while you’re applying the glue (anyone who’s gotten super glue on their finger will appreciate this). The glue is a little thicker than normal, so you have more time to get the nail where it should be.
All in all, although this product won’t last as long as acrylic nails, it’s an easy quick fix for when you can’t make it to the salon, or if you have a special event to go to.

It sounded improbable that a vibrating machine would make a revolutionary change in facial cleansing, but after trying Neutrogena Wave Power Cleanser it was amazing to see that this really works! We have no idea why the vibrating motion makes such a big difference, but the Wave really CLEANED our skin better than anything we’ve ever used. There wasn’t a trace of makeup, oil, or dirt left, making us wonder if it was still necessary to use toner.
The Wave also removes layers of dead skin. So whatever moisturizer you use afterward will work more effectively since it will go straight to live skin cells. This is also a great alternative to Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Rejuvenator Kit if your skin’s way too sensitive for microdermabrasion.
What’s convenient about the Wave is that you can also use it in the shower because it’s waterproof. This product is gentle enough for everyday use, but if you’re skin is sensitive to salicylic acid you may want to use the Wave every other day instead

Maybelline tends to always stay current on color trends. Their Ivy League trio of shadow is right on time with summer green shades. The light shade goes on the lid, the medium shade in the crease, and the light color for the brow bone or the inner corner of the eye. Instructions are printed on the shadows, making work to cocktail makeup application easy.
These are colors are high in pigment, so what you see is what you get. This particular trio is not for you if you like subtle color. They also have a somewhat metallic finish that’s very flattering. Not sure what palette to get? Try the Maybelline Color Advisor at http://www.maybelline.com/mca/index.aspx to see the best colors for you.

If you’re lashes are your favorite thing to enhance you’ll love L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Lash Extension Effect Mascara. The dual sided tube contains a base coat and a regular mascara. First you use the base, which goes on sheer even though it’s white. Infused with Ceramide R and D Pathenol, the base coat conditions your lashes so they’ll actually look better over time. The mascara promises to make your lashes 80% longer. We got longer length, but what we liked the most about this product is that we could wash the mascara completely off, with no eyelash casualties (less lashes lost is always a plus)! L’Oreal’s Double Extend Mascara didn’t smudge or smear; even after a workout.
