Spring Fever!

Maria B. Cosmetics is a new brand, so new in fact, that the website is not even up and running just yet. But keep your eye on this company because I believe they are destined for greatness, especially being called "MAC for Latina's." Would you believe that with my blonde hair, fair skin and blue eyes that I am a Latina? Yes, my ancestors hail from Latin America!

One of the ideas of Maria B. is that any woman can wear red lipstick, the idea is to find your particular color. With 30 hues to consider, there most certainly is a red that is perfect for you!

I am so fortunate to have a look at a few of Maria B's products. I loved the eye shadows, the consistency is totally smooth and silky. I tested Shell, a nuetral bronze-pink and Star, a lighter version of Shell. Layered, Shell and Star look beautiful together especially with brown eye liner and pale lips.

I really like the packaging whichis black with zebra prints. How hip and fun! Lip Paints come in pots with clear lids (with the zebra prints). I tried Queen B, which looked like a nice merlot color on my lips, and Siren, a pomegranate shade of red. These colors are nourishing and feel good on your lips. And they are long lasting which is always a plus!

I can't get enough of the Lip Shine in Cheater. Applied with the sponge tip applicator, this tube of gloss gives your pout lots of shine. The color is a frosty peachy-nude which is perfect for spring and summer.

Keep your eye Maria B.'s site. For more info, look here and here. I can't wait to see what else this brand comes out with.

Have you ever heard of Dr. Miracle's? I received a press kit in the mail along with some samples a few weeks ago. I love the fact that everything with this brand is kept simple. Dr. Miracle's is an ethnic hair company but that doesnt' mean that this girl with thin blonde hair can't use the products! I took an instant liking to the Intensive Spot Serum. It's a hair and scalp treatment that is thick in consistency and has a slightly minty scent. When you apply this to your scalp, you feel it tingle a bit.

The Serum boasts the ability to stimulate blood flow to the scalp, help split ends and strengthens hair. I poured a lot out by accident and rubbed it into my hair, resulting in a damp mess. But when I washed my hair after that, WOW, my hair was full of body. And the next day it looked even better.

Dr. Miracle's collection features lots of treatments and products and is worth a look. It's sold all over the place- you can find it at CVS, Walgreens and RiteAid. Sometimes you can find really excellent products at the drugstore, like Dr. Miracle's. Take a look at the website here.

I received some information about this Smoky Eye Kit from Stila but haven't actually used it. I feel confident recommending it because Stila never lets me down.

This kit takes you from naked eye to smoky eye in less than a minute! I adore dark smoky eyes coupled with nude lips. Whenever I see celebrities with that look, I think to myself, "That's how I want to look!" - polished and sexy. The kit talks to you, telling you what brushes to use and how to layer the colors. It's like having a makeup artist in your pocket. What a cool idea!

Stila is introducing a second shade of their All Over Glow called Peachy Keen. This fabulous springy color is like peaches and cream for your complexion! Apply the peachy hue to your cheeks and admire the glow. Then top it off with the slightly frosty shade for a hint of shimmer. The result is fresh and pretty, perfect for a sunny spring day. I like the way the peach color gives me a nice flush, almost tan- a hint of warm color for my cheeks. I love pink for the winter and peach for spring. The texture is even and doesn't clog pores or make my skin shine. I don't think I have ever been disappointed with Stila, its a brand I always return to. Go to Stila or Sephora for more information.
