Out with the old and in with the new….

ImageThe New Year is upon us, and with it comes new opportunities.  As 2013 officially comes to a close, Gaby and I say goodbye to Blair, one of our founding members.  This decision was in the best interest of all parties involved, and we wish her luck on her future endeavors.  Now, with that being said, we would like to welcome Erin as the newest member of the Makupateers.  Erin is a self-taught makeup enthusiast with a great eye for color.  You will begin seeing her work in the near future, and we are sure you will love it as much as we do.

Product Review: ADORAtheray "Smart" Gal on the Go Mood Boost™ spray

  Image

I have been on an Organic/Natural kick and when the opportunity presented itself with Beauty Stat and ADORAtherapy to test out and review their new aromatherapy product, ADORAtherapy “Smart” Gal on the Go Mood Boost spray I definitely jumped on it.

Now when I first smelled the scent I was very unsure if I would like it, but how do you know if you like something if you don’t try it? So I gave it a shot.  The packaging of all the ADORAtherapy Gal on the Go Mood Boost sprays are gorgeous with stylish women on the cover.  The ADORAtherapy “Smart” Gal on the Go Mood Boost spray has an energizing smell with top notes of lemon and grapefruit.  Like I stated earlier, I was very skeptical of the smell of the spray itself, I felt it was a little to “earthy” in the bottle, but once sprayed it-instant like.  The smell is not as “earthy” but very light, airy, and very calming.  I found myself having an easier time concentrating, was a lot more alert, and a bit more energized- when working fourteen to fifteen hour days, the ADORAtherapy Gal on the Go mood boosts are a definite must have.

Gal on Go Mood Boost™ collection:

  • Seductive: Top notes of sandalwood and ginger. Benefits: Aphrodisiac, grounding, balancing
  • Beautiful: Top notes of blood orange and jasmine. Benefits: Harmonizes emotions, enhances creativity, uplifting
  • Balanced: Top notes of rose and gardenia. Benefits: Balance and harmony, calming, elevates social outlook
  • Inspired: Top notes of peppermint and chamomile. Benefits: Stimulating and purifying, refreshing, relieves fatigue
  • Awake: Top notes of Tulsi (Holy Basil) and frankincense. Benefits: emotional and spiritual balance, energizing, mental clarify
  • Peaceful: Top notes of lavender and Rosewood. Benefits: Calming and soothing, balancing, meditation and tranquility.

Hello Makeupettes,

For our launch as Makeupateers we did a whole 2 weeks of all Benefit Cosmetics Products.
If you follow us on Instagram and Facebook you seen pictures and looks of us using Benefit.

Well here are our Favorite Benefit Cosmetics Holiday Sets:

Jacki’s Favorite is:
 Benefitluvitup
Luv it up! $25.00
Is a new holiday kit that Benefit cosmetics put together for the 2013 holiday season. You have to be thinking the same thing I am, isn’t it the cutest packaging? With Benefit cute packaging is a given. I chose Luv it up! As a must have for my collection because it provides everything needed for a simple everyday look. It has 3 shadows, a gloss, and a creaseless shadow that can double as a shadow base or worn on its own. It’s great for a busy girl who still wants to look a little glam!
Gaby’s Favorite is:
bene

I’m glam… therefore I am $36.00
Kit includes:
  • girl meets pearl deluxe mini liquid pearl for face
  • glamming face powder with powder brush
  • ultra shines lip shine in life on the A list (bubble gum pink)
  • a little bit BADgal lash mascara
  • eyeshadow palette
  • double-ended sponge applicator
I like this set because it is practically everything you need for a day to night look, you can create a neutral eye or a smoky eye. The colors are perfect for the winter season and the Girl Meets Pearl will give a nice glow to your complexion, Top it all off with a pink pout and Bad Gal Lashes. This is definitely a must get for any girls on your Holiday list.
There are many more Holiday 2013 Sets that Benefit has available, look at them all here.
Let us know what your favorite set is and if you own one already let us know how you live it 🙂
