Makeup Forever USA Product Review

I received from a giveaway a Best of Makeup Forever Kit!! This stuff is amazing! It comes with their High Definition Powder, Waterproof eye makeup remover, Smoky lash mascara, high definition primer and the Aqua eyes black eye liner! The mascara makes your eyelashes look super long instantly! Even my husband noticed the difference! And the eyeliner goes on super smooth.  Both last all day for total eye beauty!

I love the eye makeup remover!!! It is great for when you are applying makeup to get the smudges off the eyes or clean up a mistake.  And then it works amazingly at the end of the day to take it all off!!

The high definition primer makes my skin feel fresh and ready to get done up! It goes perfect with my foundation and then a finish with the High Definition Powder! It's white but blends perfectly into my skin, leaving me looking natural but hiding my shiny spots! It really brings out the best and hides your impurities! This makeup gives me a fresh and finished look every time!!

Please check out these products and many more on their website at Makeup Forever USA

Giveaway Fun on Twitter

Do you like to win things? ok who doesn't?? But how good are you at winning things? I have found the power of winning things is easier to obtain than you may think! Twitter is the ulitmate place to find tons of free stuff!! Since April of this year, here is a short list of some of the things I have won(Some on twitter, some on facebook that I found on twitter)

Concert tickets (including a years pass from Livenation)
Pantech Reveal cell phone
makeup/other beauty products
Hotel accomadations

This is a sample of what is out there!! I don't win everything I enter, but the more you enter the better your chances! People giveaway IPODS, laptops, cameras, video cameras, trips and more! There are things to look for in the twitter search box that will help you find these contests. The keywords I search for daily are:
"first person", "1st person", "person wins", "people win", "person win", "answer wins", "answer win", "rt wins", "rt win", "follower win" "follower wins"

These bring up all sorts of everything that people are giving away! also look for Blog contests where you have to post on a blog to be entered! you can find these by searching for words like giveaway, win, "enter to win" etc.

Happy contesting!

Rubiks Touch Cube Review

Wow!!! I couldn't believe it when I won a Rubiks Touch Cube!!! Go to check out the amazing video here: Touch Cube Video Well I got it last week! I haven't played with a regular Rubiks cube for a long time so this was fabulous! To move the colors you slide your finger across the top facing side. This works just like a regular Rubiks Cube only without physically turning the sides!! It also features a scramble button to mix it up, a hint button (which it won't let you do if you are improving) and a solve button! This will show you (quickly) the entire process to solve it! What a fun toy!! Great for kids ages 8+

I was not compensated by anyway by Rubiks, I just want to share my opinion on a great product!
