MAC’s Miley Cyrus Viva Glam Lip Collection Review

Miley Cyrus MAC Viva Glam

Hi! Beauties! Hope everyone is having a blessed day! Today I want to show you my latest additions to my MAC Lip collection. I purchased both MAC’s Miley Cyrus Viva Glam Limited Collection Lipstick and Lip Glass. I am not a huge fan of Miley Cyrus but I am a fan of the beautiful color Hot Pink hue this lipstick an lip glass came in. Plus, an added bonus every penny of the sale price of any Viva Glam Collection item goes to help families fighting AID’s. Also each lipstick and lip glass has Miley Cyrus’s signature on them. I did check before posting this review , both the lipstick and lip glass are still available on Nordstrom and MAC’s websites. I am going to tell you how both websites describes this Lipstick and Lip Glass. I will then be showing you swatches of the lipstick alone, lip glass alone and with them worn together.

The website describes the lipstick & lip glass as:

Wham! Bam! VIVA GLAM! Superstar Miley Cyrus is ready to make noise as this iconic campaign’s 2015 spokesperson. The global pop phenomenon kicks off her VIVA GLAM with two surefire hits: a super-sexy hot pink Lipstick and matching Lipglass with sparkling pearl shimmer. Every cent of the selling price goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

Now for the beautiful swatches!

Miley Cyrus MAC Viva Glam Swatches

I am in love with this color! The lipstick is MAC’s iconic amplified formula. I love this formula for the color payoff, lasting power and it is not too matte or too shimmery! Of course, the lipstick has MAC’s slight vanilla scent that they are known to have.  For swatch purposes I covered the entire “together” swatch with lip glass, but when I wear them together I just put the lip glass on center of my bottom lip along with a dab on my cupid bow of my top lip. Wow! Your lips look so full and plump.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting me today! I hope you decide to subscribe/follow me so we can visit again.

Walking Away the Pounds by Leslie Sansone Review

Walk Away the Pounds by Leslie Sansone

Hi! Beauties! As my last post said, I just turned 50. I am feeling better now than I have in a long time. I believe along with losing the weight I did since 2012, this Walk Away the Pounds Ultimate Collection DVD has a lot to do with it. If you have followed this blog and read about my weight loss journey (Health Category) you know that I was an avid outdoor walker during my weight loss journey, I was up to walking 6 miles most every day. Then once I reached my goal and life happens as it always does. I got a way from my exercise. A friend of mine recommended this workout to me. So one day while on the phone with her, I ordered it. For your convenience, I will leave a link that you can use to review or purchase this DVD on the bottom of this review.

Like I was saying, I was up to walking 6 miles most days. Then life happened, then weather turned cold, etc….. you know the excuses. I did join the closest gym to me, 17 miles away. That did not work out for me because I didn’t want to drive that far every day to work out. When I received this in the mail after ordering it off of Amazon, I was pleasantly surprised and pleased. Leslie was not some personal trainer who spent the whole video trying to motivate you by yelling at you. She gently but effectively motivates you. I have only done the first 2 workouts and to be honest, I do the first one the most. It is not a real long workout but it is a good one. You are not just walking in place either.  She and the other people on the video uses some soft round two pound weights during part of the workout, which helps the short workout to be more effective and help you burn more calories. She does give you the option in the video during the workout not to use them, so you don’t have to.

Two Pound Workout Weights

I did not have the above pictured soft weighted balls at first. I found the ones above at a store in Rockwall, TX. I will leave the link to purchase these online, on the bottom of this review, so if you do not want to wait until you have time to shop around for them like I did. I just happened upon them. I did however have the two pound weight bars and I used them until I found the soft round weighted balls. They worked fine, I will say I do prefer the soft ones since I have tried them. You don’t have to have either kind of weights to do the workout, you can do it without weights.

I can say, I did not realize until doing the 4 simple movements you do while participating in this workout how quickly you do lose your coordination, muscle or strength by not doing some kind of exercise daily or even just 3 times a week. So long story, short, I would definitely recommend this exercise DVD no matter your age. Like she says all you have to do is move and you can’t do the workout wrong. This is not a sponsored blog post. I bought this program along with weights myself. Some links are affiliated links.

Here are the links to the products I mentioned. I hope you will at least go to the website and check the DVD out and even read more reviews about it before you make your decision whether to purchase or not.
