Fortune Girls is multi-media brand to empower tween girls from ages 6 to 12 with multicultural characters from all around the world.

BA Star Holiday Red Lip Pencil

I had the opportunity to sample BA Star Holiday Red Lip Pencil #GotItFree Powered by BrandBacker all opinions are 100% my own.

Before applying the Holiday Red Lip Pencil my first thoughts of the pencil maybe I need some gloss on it my lips may look dry. Not at all it was actually very creamy like a lipstick and it darken my lips a bit because of my tan complexion. My daughter on the other hand is more over on the caucasian side her lips were nice and bright and with her complexion she looks like the women in the 1920's a beauty.

We both liked the way it look on both of our lips we definitely will continue to use the Holiday Red Lip Pencil all year around and especially for the the holidays.

BA Star has easy make up videos showing you step-by-step on how to achieve the BA Star look learn from their experts. I, almost forgot to mention they offer team pricing for cheerleaders, dancers, or competitors. Good news they are offering my readers a discount of 50% off using the code BBLIPS. 

Crazy Sale Update: BA STAR Pre-Thanksgiving blowout starts 11/26 ends Thanksgiving Day 6am

Bango Home Hair Cutting Tool

I received Bango the home hair cutting tool for review Sewing Drama may contain affiliate links all opinions in this blog are 100% my own. 

 I'm always trimming my hair and my side bangs, but for some reason I don't have a stable hand grip when cutting my hair and I tend to hold my hair for a long period of time just to get the right length to cut making my arms very tired. 

 I was excited to review Bango the home hair cutting kit seriously who has time or money to run to the salon and get their hair trim every time your bangs start to grow out.

 I know I don't... I think it's time to DIY it.

You can create blunt bangs, textured bangs, side bangs, children's bangs, short hair and use it on men for a quick trim using the hair cutting tool.

In the kit it has a DVD instructional video, pink grip clipper, 2 large hair clips, scissor, and a comb I review the video and it's so simple to use Bango.

I love the pink grip clipper it holds your hair in place no more tiring arms for me, the 2 large hair clips holds back the hair you do not want to cut, the scissor creates a nice clean cut, and the comb makes me feel I'm an actual hairstylist.

    This month in October Dove hosts the 4th Annual Self Esteem Annual Weekend

    I know my preteen is going through something now and I see it. She's always moody and don't want to talk about nothing. I know she's going through the phase, but thank goodness she continues to do what she loves to do drawing her anime pictures. When an issue arises she does come to me for guidance and we put both our heads together to fix or adjust the situation. We are #GirlsUnstoppable!!!

    Here is a pic of Kingdom Hearts her version on a sketch paper she drew for her brother...

Let us be part of the #GirlsUnstoppable movement Dove wants to make all girls unstoppable in support of positive self esteem.

    All Types of Vitamin E

    All opinions in this post are 100% my own and Sewing Drama may contain affiliate links.

    I purchased my Vitamin E Oil from Dollar General in the beauty aisle and didn't think nothing of it, but then I decided to write a blog post about it and was force to do some research on it.

    In my search I found out there are many types of Vitamin E the one that's for skin care contains Tocopherol.  I didn't know that I checked my bottle it contains soybean oil, Vitamin E (Tocopheryl Acetate) and coconut oil. Whew, I'm good!

    If the Vitamin E oil label reads...alpha-, beta-, gamma-, delta- tocopherol, alpha-, beta-, gamma-, delta –tocotrienol, and D1 –alpha tocopherol the D1 means that this is a synthetic form of vitamin E. These are not good for your skin these are harsh chemicals.

    It has an unpleasant smell I guess it's from the soybean oil, but it is not strong I mixed it up with a little vitamin E cream which has a light scent. This vitamin is great for dry skin, skin renewal, and it nourishes your skin. I applied it to my dry elbows I hate those flaky elbows and continue to apply on my arms and legs it wasn't greasy at all, but you can see the moisturizer glistening on my skin.  I'm using it on my cuticles they are in need of repair badly. The vitamin E cream is good but for me it did not moisturize enough this is when I decided to use the oil version. 

    The Huffington Post has an article of  Vitamin E Oil, Why You Should Use On Your Body With Caution in more detail and Love Your Skin Beautiful has a post of Vitamin E – The Dream Eye Cream! the actual Vitamin E pill for your outer eyes.

    Olay Fresh Effects

    I received Fresh Effects complimentary from Influenster for review and all opinions are 100% my own.

    In those hot days/caliente dias your face gets oily it would be nice for that Shine, Shine, Go Away! 

    Olay Fresh Effects

    I normally wash my face with soap in the morning always, in the afternoon depending how's the weather, and always at night. I've tried out the Olay Fresh Effects for a few weeks I notice it actually minimizes the shine on my face it works better than a facial mask. To be honest every time I use fresh effects my face feels clean and fresh that ahh feeling came in mind.

    I'm glad I tried out this product if I were you I'll be on the lookout for Fresh Effects you don't want to get stuck in those caliente dias with all that shine on your face.

    Disclosure: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

    Gillette Venus & Olay and Satin Care


    Thank You Gillette for sending me a free sample product & coupons.

    In the mail about a month ago I received a $8 off coupon from Gillette Venus & Olay razor & a free coupon of their Satin Care shaving gel. I don't remember applying for a coupon, but there it was sitting in my mailbox. 

    Gillette Venus & Olay Coupons

    Gillette Venus & Olay Satin Care

    I purchase the items at regular price in Walgreens luckily I had the coupons and paid the difference which wasn't much maybe about a few dollars.

    Gillette Venus & Olay Shower Hook

    In the Venus & Olay razor package it has 1 cartridge with 5 blades, 1 razor shower hook, and on both sides of the razor it has the Olay gel bar with the new Sugarberry Scent. 

    My experience as I was applying the gel I notice the Sugarberry scent which was wonderful and as I'm shaving my legs it felt very smooth, moisturize, and those powerful blades made my legs look brand new.  Please don't judge me it's been two week since I shaved. #LoveIt  

    My opinion be cautious when using the razor the attached gel tends to lather quickly it becomes very slippery so take your time.

    I tried the Satin Care shaving gel I use another razor that I had on hand a little goes a long way when applying the gel and that Passionista fruit scent ahhh it smell so good.

    Gillette Venus & Olay Razor
    The picture above I did request a free sample of the single Venus & Olay razor from Gillette facebook page which I received two weeks ago. The only thing about the single razor the shower hook is not included.

    Have you tried Venus & Olay?

    Disclosure: I requested a free sample product from Gillette & I was not required to write a review. All opinions are my own.
