Did you all read my She' Essential
Beauty Review? If you did then you know
how bad I need help with my hair, eyes, skin,
face and nails. I really need help! It has been
a year since I even got my hair cut. I have
disgusted myself even. For 25 years I have
been the resident Diva! The I was 40 and
pregnant and lost all ambition.
If I click my heels together 3 times and
say " I am a Diva" do you think I can go
back to the way I was?
Well She' Essentials fixed me! Or, at least
they gave me a great head start. I still need
that hair doo!
Now I have another problem. Did you know
that if you ignore your make-up for over a year
that anything liquid or cream based will dry
up? Did you know there is a shelf life on
make-up? Um, shocker to me! My collection
is dust! Now I need to buy more.
I have a thing about skin. I was blessed
with flawless, youth full looking Ivory skin.
I realized at a young age how blessed
I was and saw other people suffering through
acne and other ailments. I swore to myself
that I would never put anything but a high
quality product and do everything in my
power to care for my skin. I spend more
money on make-up then I will ever admit too.
I lived at the Lanacomb, Estee Lauder and
Clinique Counters at the mall. Now I am ready
to face the world again and I have no "face" to
put on. Everything but my Eye Shadow and Blush
are ruined and as useful to me as my son on
the first day of spring cleaning. I could just
die! I started surfing the net going from beauty
site to beauty site saying goodbye to all my old
friends when I stumbled upon a site called
Wait a minute.....................
They look good...................
I took a few minutes to read through their site
and check out their product listings, checking out
the ingredients, the philosophy and the dedication
they pour into their products.
They sound good.......
Next thing I know I am swapping emails back
and forth and was able to offer a contest for
you guys and a review for the site. while you
all have been busy entering the contest I have
been pacing the floors here waiting.
TODAY IT CAME!
Bright and early!
I received the same kit that is in the contest.
• Pro vitamin B5 and Rice Bran mascara
in black that conditions and strengthens
the lashes while boosting volume and length.
• Cherry oil lip gloss in Light Purple 23
provides high shine and moisture without
• Guava lipstick in Natural Pink 13 is highly
pigmented and offers intense creamy color.
• Sunflower and Evening Primrose Eyeshadow
in White 10 provides hydration, long lasting-
wear and eyelid firming benefits.
• Soft Eyeliner in black has the perfect smooth
texture to give you endless options for the eyes.
And they are my colors too!
The first thing I grabbed was the eyeliner for
I am super fickle about those.It was a pencil and
I was a little nervous. I had a flashback to my
teen years and the hard pencil eyeliners I used
then. This was so NOT that product. I was shocked
at how creamy and smooth it was. How it glided on
and there was no smudging like with the twist up
eye liners I had been using. It was solid and went
where you put it. It did not stick on parts of your
skin and end up skipping and leaving a mess.
It was perfect!
Phase one complete.
After the liner I grabbed the shadow. Again, Amazed.
The color applies smooth and looks the same on you
as it does in the pallet. You can feel the moisture in
it but it is dry enough to cover even and not leave
blops. Very impressive and I really liked it better then
the lanacomb I have in my drawers right now.
Phase two rocked!
Next was the Mascara and I spent some time
pulling it in and out of the container. From past
experiences I know that about half the time you
pull out the wand there are thick clumps on it
and they end up making your lashes stick together
and when you try to get it off you make a mess and
need to start over. This didn't do that at all. I tried
like the dickens to get it to but it didn't. Not even
close. It went on smooth and stayed where I put
Phase three is kick-en it top shelf style!
Last was the Lipstick and Gloss. I could own
stock in a lipstick and Gloss factory. I use 2-4
tubes a month and have spent my sons Collage
money buying it. ( Shhhh!) The Lipstick went on
creamy and felt moist, not dry and caked. I could
run my tongue over my lips without fear of ending
up with a pink tongue. It lasted too. I felt no need
to reapply and think I could save money on this for
I will not be using 2-4 tubes a month. The gloss
was equally impressive. It was just shiny and
glossy enough without making me look like
I belonged in a Vegas Cat house. It was not
too thick and didn't leave me feeling like
I had casted my lips in some disgusting
foreign substance. It was really clean feeling
and I was tickled pink, funny, same shade as the
All of this came in a perfect sized, quality
case I will be taking everywhere with me. It is
not flashy or silly looking like the ones I get with
a lot of gift packs at the mall and it is one color
(brown) and will go with everything!
My review is so positive I can't even
give you descriptive words that won't make
me look like a 6 year old in a candy shop.
I was that excited to do this review. I would
be more then willing to review anything KORRES
has to offer ( hint hint, LOL) for everything I received
today was so spectacular I can't see them making
anything bad. It is MY new brand of make-up!
