Billion Dollar Brows

Hi Ladies & Gents,

Sponsored Post, Powered by Brandbacker

I'm so excited to bring you this beauty regimen I have been using on my eyebrows for a week now and I have to say I am loving it. The Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit is a great kit that includes a universal brow pencil, a brow duo pencil (concealer and highlighter), a smudge brush, and brow gel. I have to say my favorite tool in the kit is the Universal Brow Pencil, It's automatic so no sharpening needed and it includes a spiral brush on the other end so you can tame your unruly brows. What I like about it is it actually matches to my brows. I don't know how many pencils/shadows I have tested to try to match my brow color. I am happy to say that I have to look no further because I found a perfect match. I am very lucky that I have someone that does a fantastic job threading my eyebrows, but for those days where I cant get to her or to hide my little bald spots, this is perfect. Anyway, check out pictures below of a step by step tutorial  on how I used the kit and make sure to stop by Kohls in October, when the kit will be available for $34.99.

The Universal Brow Pencil is my favorite because one pencil can be used on all brow colors, it glides on easy so you don't have try to make your brows darker unless you are going for that look. It’s also mechanical, self-sharpening, and  has a brush on the end so you can tame your brows. No more guessing games when it comes to choosing your brow pencil color. This Universal Brow Pencil is formulated to work with all skin tones and hair colors. This pencil goes on smooth and natural; perfect for creating  gorgeous eyebrows.
This bad boy will be in my purse at all times. Use the brush end of The Universal Brow Pencil to prep your eyebrows and comb them into  perfect shape.

Billion Dollar Brows Smudge Brush - an essential item for applying Brow Highlighter. This flat, synthetic brush is the ideal mate for applying creamy cosmetics like our Brow Duo Pencil.I Liked that the kit came with The Smudge Brush. Once I applied with the brow pencil, I used The Smudge Brush to blend the color with my own eyebrows so it could look even. This is a step you don't want to skip because you don't want to look like you just colored your brows with a sharpy marker, don't be that girl.

Billion Dollar Brows Brow Duo Highlighter - an amazing and unique two in one highlighter and concealer. With this innovative pencil you can get picture perfect brows. Brow Duo Highlighter allows you to highlight your brow bone to add gorgeous definition and warmth. Works with any skin tone. Plus, for those on-the-go touchups, a handy universal concealer to the opposite end of the pencil. 
As for the Concealer and Highlighter, I tested on my arm first and it did go on thickly, but they did blend easily.skipped the concealer but went ahead with the highlighter above my brow and at my arch. Once again it applied thickly so make sure to use lightly.

I used an angle brush to blend in the highlighter evenly or you can smudge the highlighter with your finger and blend into your arch. This really gives that eyebrow arch that every girl yearns for.

Billion Dollar Brows Brow Gel Clear - an effective formula that will lock in your look, giving your eyebrows a long-lasting, radiant glow while keeping them perfectly in place all day. It’s the perfect finishing touch for giving your brows a polished, perfectly manicured look. Plus, it is a guarantee the Brow Gel never flakes
Apply a light coat of the clear Brow Gel to hold everything in place and you're done!
This is great, if you have thick eyebrows like myself, because it holds everything together. 

Here is a picture from a previous post in which I actually uses the kit for the first time. Love my eyebrows.


I was so happy with how my eyebrows turned out. Don't forget, Billion Dollar Brows is launching at Kohl's next month, so don't forget to check them out! 

Peace & Love!

More Issues Than Vogue

Hi Ladies & Gents,

So, I'm just going to get into this post because I can't stand how cute my Annabelle looks in this outfit. I like the way I look, but lets face it, I am chop liver when it comes to her. This mommy and me outfit has me in stitches and I hope you guys love it as much as I do! I love how I mixed a casual look with my chic shoes from Monikachiang, which I don't really get to wear, so any chance I can get I put these bad boys on. Our lovely shirts are from Enjoyessential. I love how they have cute phrases on simple t-shirts for mommies and their minis.  I'm so glad I found this site on Instagram and I definitely plan on purchasing other items from this cute shop. Overall this cute little getup was perfect for the crazy 80 degree weather we had here in New Jersey. I swear its like the weather doesn't want to make up its mind. Anyway I was glad I was able to put this outfit together before it truly gets cold here. Check out below how I topped each of our outfits off and stay tuned for some more cute mommy and me posts.
Peace & Love.

Neutrogena Visibly Even Line

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with NEUTROGENA® and Latina Bloggers Connect. All opinions expressed are my own.

Hi Ladies & Gents,

I hope you all are having a  very happy hump day. Lately I have been telling you guys a lot about my beauty regimens. I can't stress how important it is to have a skin regimen. As a woman the earlier you start taking care of your skin the better off you will be as you get older. I don't know how many times, people have been shocked about my age and though I have to thank my mom for great genes, I do credit my active pursuit in taking care of my skin for the shocked faces,lol. 

So, today I'm going to talk to you guys about the Neutrogena Visibly Even Line. If you follow me, you know that I am a big advocate for Neutrogena products. I like to test new products out ,but for me Neutrogena never fails to take care of my skin. I can tell you, I love this line because as a new mom getting ready in the morning is challenging and these products makes it effortless to feel beautiful and fresh. I have to get my daughter ready to drop off at the sitters before I start my work day, so to have products that are quick and easy to apply and leave my skin looking flawless, makes this mommy a happy camper. Check out below how I use each product and how achieved my look for a dinner date with my bestie. Stay tuned for a post on my chic but comfy outfit details.

NEUTROGENA® VISIBLY EVEN® Foaming Cleanser:This product contains ESSENTIAL SOY which is a natural brightener which helps achieve that glow and evens out your skin tone which I need badly. I make sure to lather this on my face in the morning. What I like about this is it doesn't dry out my skin.

NEUTROGENA® VISIBLY EVEN® Daily Moisturizer SPF 30: I cant stress how important it is to moisturize your skin. This product is something I carry around with me all day just because I love to have smooth skin and I tend to have dry skin during the fall winter season. I also love this product because it contains SPF in it. I work with cancer patients and have seen what not taking care of your skin can do, so ladies don't assume that you don't need SPF just because you cant feel or see the sun, its there and its damaging your skin. This moisturizer also contains essential soy to help with that glow we all long for.

NEUTROGENA® VISIBLY EVEN® BB Cream SPF 30: I am beyond addicted to this BB Cream. As I get older I notice that my skin tone has become uneven and those dark circles have appeared from lack of sleep. This creme creates an even toned skin, while preventing dark spots/blemish marks and improving your overall radiance. This creme also contains SPF 30 which I love.

Ladies if you want radiant glow worthy skin, try this beauty regimen and I promise you wont look back to dry uneven skin. 

Peace & Love


My morning routine

Always make sure you have a cleansed face before applying moisturizer.

My face after I  apply all three products. Love my natural glow.
