Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects



I'm going to talk a little about the Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects and my experience with them.
What the website says:

Product Description:

Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips provide professional level whitening results that last up to 12 months. Featuring Advanced Seal technology, these no-slip Whitestrips allow you to talk, drink water and go about your day while you whiten with no sticky mess. Use for 30 minutes, once a day for a stand out smile. Plus, you'll start seeing results after just 3 days.

  • Professional level whitening results that last up to 12 months.
  • Advanced Seal technology allows you to talk, drink water, and go about your day while you whiten and the Whitestrips won't slip.
  • Start seeing a whiter smile after just 3 days.
  • Enamel safe. Same whitening ingredient dentists use.
  • Give yourself a smile makeover with professional level whitening results at home.
  • Easy application. Safe and easy to use.

Product Ingredients :

PVP, PEG-8, Water, Hydrogen Peroxide, Acrylates Copolymer, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Saccharin

My Thoughts:  I'll definitely pick these up again if I need to whiten my teeth again later on down the road (I love my coffee), after just the first couple uses I could tell my teeth were getting whiter.  For the treatment these give it's definitely way more affordable then shelling out $400+ to a dentist. 

Price: $49.99 for 20ct

Where to buy: P&G eStore

You can check out this great deal at the P&G eStore:

Makeup Geek - Eyeshadow - Swatches Part 1


Makeup Geek

A while back I placed my first order to Makeup Geek, I ended up picking up 5 eyeshadows and a lipstick. I'll be doing the swatching in two parts and I will have a review up shortly after that.

Anyway onto the photos!














I really want to try out their gel liners when I get a chance to place another order (husband is telling me I have to wait for now).

Holiday Hauls - New Website Design

I've been updating my website and redesigning it just to redesign it again a week late. I decided I wanted something that was a little more adult, a little more me, and that also conveniently matches the wondering "Winter is Coming!" theme as well. Any thoughts on the new design would be amazing, I mainly want to know if it's eye pleasing, functional, and easy to read.

I spent all day working on creating the social icon buttons, banner, and getting everything tweaked just how I want it. I'm sure I will have more that I will be adding on and changing as well.

Most everyone knows that pretty much everywhere had Black Friday to Cyber Monday sales, here's a little sneak peek of part of what I picked up.

Anyway onto the photos!




I'll have post up soon as well featuring some Milani swatches, Makeupgeek swatches, and other things I'm behind on.

Did you pick up anything up during the holiday sales?

Guest Post - Madam Noire

Hello makeup-lovers and fellow spooks! :)

My name is Madam Noire and I got lost in Makeup Wonderland several years ago when I discovered what a great source of creativity the art of makeup provides.

An important aspect with my blogging is that the makeup I use for my looks is 100% non-animal tested. I love animals even more than makeup and I can’t stand the thought of them being tortured for the sake of our vanity!


Right now I am doing some crazy Christmas looks and this is one of them. As you might have guessed it is inspired by gingerbreads. 


List of products:

Face
  • Skin base foundation 02 (Illamasqua)
  • Tone correcting concealer (e.l.f.)
  • Blush Glow (e.l.f.)
Eyebrows
  • Brown eyeliner pencil (brand unknown)
  • Mocha (Makeup Geek)
Eyes
  • Gel liner Mobster (Makeup Geek) used as a base
  • Mocha (Makeup Geek) on the lid
  • Cocoa bear (Makeup geek) in the crease
  • White lies (Makeup Geek) highlight under brows
  • Ice Queen (Makeup Geek) highlight inner corner
  • Aquacolor White (Kryolan) used as eyeliner
  • Medium pencil S.O.P.H.I.E. (Illamasqua)
  • Gel liner Immortal (Makeup Geek)
  • False lashes long, black (H&M)
Lips
  • Lipgloss Edelweiss (Face Stockholm)
If you want to see more of my looks, reviews, tutorials and random ramble about the Makeup Wonderland, just skip over to my blog and say hello :D à http://madamnoire.blogspot.com 

Since I work as a freelance makeup artist I also have a professional portfolio which can be viewed at my Facebook page à http://www.facebook.com/makeupartistMadamNoire

Thank you for reading and hope to see you soon! :)

XOXO Madam Noire
