Well, the Lip Bon Bons are a hit!  The tinted conditioning  lip balms are so conditioning that I am not leaving my house without them!  Every girl needs this in their makeup bag!

I have tried lip conditioners, lip balms, chapsticks and many other cosmetics claiming to condition my lips.  They either left my lips feeling waxy, or the conditioning did not last long!

Let us all rejoice!  Younique products have added a new Spring line which consists of something amazing!  Yes, Younique just came out with a Lip Bon Bon.

Lip Bon Bons will be great  anytime of the year.    They come in several color choices.  Each stick has a very light vanilla scent, but they do not have a flavor.  And each will leave a subtle color on your lips. This is the perfect go-to makeup item to leave the house with to reapply as needed.  The natural oils will do their conditioning job for a long time, too!lip bon bon info

With a mild vanilla fragrance, fruit extracts, and five natural oils, all you need is just a touch throughout the day to add a subtle hint of color while moisturizing and pampering your lips.   Apply over lip products for added moisture and shine. Dab with finger and apply for a softer, more subtle look. Apply throughout the day to add a hint of color and moisture to the lips.  So this product works great by itself, and is just a bonus for the other lip products in your makeup bag.   SCORE!  I love products with more than one way of using them!

I was so excited to get them, I made my own little happy video!  Check it out here!

Beachfront Self -Tanning Lotions and Sprays will wow you!

beachfront beauties

 

Well, Younique has done it!  I mean, really done it!  Younique has successfully created the Beachfront self-tanning products, the  self-tanning lotion, and spray!  Each will deliver a beach tan, without the harmful rays, without harmful chemicals on your body, will not turn you orange, and the price is stellar!   Yes, you heard me right!

The Beachfront Bronzing lotion and spray has recently been released.  It is every cosmetic lovers dream.  The instant glow you get is unlike any other I have ever gotten, and I have used many of these products.   The lotion, being a gel-like thick consistency, in my opinion, is best to be used on your chest, and down.   The spray is light and airy, and perfect to spritz your face and neck area.

Just like my website explains, the lotion smooths on that coveted, summery tan—while nourishing and moisturizing your skin. This self-tanning body lotion has everything your skin craves while allowing you to build a tan, day by day. It’s just as easy as putting on your morning lotion—and your skin will thank you for it.   The lotion cost is just $39 for a 7 fl. oz. tube.  I have tanned my legs and did not have to use much product.

A traditional spray tan costs on average, $40,  for one session in my area.  Say hello to this price of $25 for the self-tanning spray!  And you will get 2-3 full body sprays, that will give you the radiant glow you want!  Build a light and summery tan–without the sun. Instead of tan lines and sunburns, say hello to soft, glowing skin. It is formulated with a light fragrance, eliminating the signature self-tanner scent. Go ahead. Love your skin. Your skin will love you right back.

Both products are build-able, and have only one color to choose from.Both the spray and lotion are full of ingredients your skin will thank you for.  Contains coconut oil to condition skin.   Green tea extract helps to protect skin.  Vitamins and Shea butter nourish skin.  Amazing beauty product right here!

 

The instant Body Bronzer will wash off after each application.  This product will be available soon!

1 day tanner results

Do you see my personal results?  They are incredible!  I was amazed how easy the product applied and I had no streaking or blotchy spots.    Although I was amazed, I could not wait to wake up and go outside to see my results in the sun the next day.    Let me just say, there was no transfer of product on my sheets either!  So, I got instant results,  once my PH level adjusted, I got darker, and no transfer to my sheet!    Here is my natural light results:  arm and leg tanner

 

I used the spray on my arm, and the lotion on my leg.  Results are from ONE application.  I truly am in love!  I am going hashtag… #loveit

ok, so how long does it last?  Well, I am on day 7!!!  And I am still walking around with one side of my body with a sun tan glow.  Yes, seriously.  I always want to provide real feedback to my customers, and I am always truthful.

Beachfront Bronzer for Summertime Glow

younique makeup bronzer foundation

Welcome,  Summertime!   So many look forward to summertime.   Everyone has different reason why they love summer.  I love it because it means fun in the sun, a break from homeschooling my son, and vacation destinations and Beachfront Bronzer.   One thing  many women have in common during this time is that we are just busy.  The season might be changing, but we are still just as busy as ever, even if it does mean a break for some.

So, while you are rushing around your house, getting ready, one thing we need is a quick “5 minutes makeup face”.   This seems to be my go-to face quite often.  One item that Younique has come out with is a new Beachfront Bronzer.  It is my quick splash of color on my cheekbones, nose and forehead, and I am out the door in a hurry!

There are 3 different shades to choose from, so you’ll be sure to find the perfect shade for you.  And what I absolutely love about all of the Younique products, is the ingredients and detailed information is listed under each product.  Do you know what is in the products you use?  Don’t be so rushed to bypass a label.

#Likeagirl Superbowl Commercial

Did you see the commercial, #likeagirl  , during the Superbowl? I woke up thinking about that commercial again this morning.    It was such an impactful message.  One that I believe starts with how we raise children and their viewpoints.  I want to be the type of mom who raises her son teaching him the utmost respect for women, and that starts at a very young age.

I think we as society, need to reevaluate the way females are judged, treated and evaluated daily.   And, with that said, it brings me back to the mission of Younique ; the mission statement is to Uplift, Empower and Validate women.   And I hope we as a society can start to do this from the beginning of a young girl’s life until her adult life.

Let that change start with us. Live Younique!

A New Year, a New You, and New Goals

   We have all heard the term, New Year’s Resolution.   In fact, I have seen so many posts asking what people’s resolution is.  It’s the same every year.  The majority of posts say lose weight, work out more, eat healthier, yadda yadda.  But, where are the posts about using better cosmetics and skin care?  Those posts don’t exist.  Why?  Because the US population has no idea, as a whole, that toxins are lurking in so many of their skin care and cosmetics.

Are you familiar with the EWG?  The Environmental Working Group has been something I search quite often.  It rates toxins and chemicals in many of today’s products.   The ranking is from 1 being the lowest and least toxic, all the way to a 10, being the highest concern.   You can access the site by going here: www.ewg.org   .     One of my missions this year is to help others understand the harmful chemicals and toxins that are lurking in their products.  And, my other mission is to show them that this reputable group has a search feature where you can input ingredients to get a ranking.   In fact, if you do that, you will see that the popular 3D Moodstruck Fiberlash Mascara ranks a 2!     And, if you input many of our products, you will see that we have a low ranking for a wide variety of products.  Compare that with other top brands, and I think you will be surprised about your findings.

Wishing you a wonderful 2015!  Happy New Year!Love and Lashes,

Rollin’ Out of 2014 and Preparing for an Epic 2015!

Well, what can I say?  2014 was pretty awesome!  Considering we all thought I was facing death in 2013, I’d say 2014 was pretty amazing!   And, of course, I have so many things to be thankful for.  I could make a huge list.  First, my relationship with God because it was truly my faith that brought me through fear and uncertainty in the very beginning of this year.  I could not have made it without my husband.  I hear people say that, but until you go through a very traumatic experience, it is really true; I could not have made it without my husband.  Period.  And, I have a few key people that walked along my side those terrifying days.  But, then, came a purpose to the madness.

Have you ever had an opportunity present itself and you just know with everything you are made of, that it is just something you are supposed to do?  You have no understanding why.  You have no deep connection.  You just feel a strong sense of urgency to do something?  That was totally what I felt February 15th of this year.  My pulse was racing and I quickly signed up with Younique.  I had no idea, or thought through, my decision.  I just knew it was right.

I joined that day and learned as much as I could within the first 2 weeks.  I started selling based on reviews before I even had my own kit.  Have I ever done something like this before?  NO!  But it was just a gut feeling.  And, I feel very strongly about a woman’s intuition.   I was like a racehorse sharing with everyone about this product.  It was a mix of emotion and passion.  You see, my body was having turmoil from an autoimmune disease.  And complications are made worse by toxins and chemicals.   When it hit me, and boy did it hit me, that Younique was chemical free, no fillers, and no parabens, it was like a huge electric bolt hit me.  You see, in earlier months we thought I was dying.   I researched for hours, as well as my family, about chemicals that get absorbed into the bloodstream.  Plainly, it is not good.   So, this was the path I was meant to take.

It is a great feeling sharing with women about their overall health, and sharing about the awesome products Younique has to offer.  Although this company just turned 2 years old, it is growing by leaps and bounds every day. This is a home-based business opportunity that anyone could benefit from. And, selling from the comfort of my own home and own computer puts a new spin on selling in the 21st century.  A virtual business, how smart!   From their hot product of #3D Fiber Mascara, their #Moodstruck Precision Pencils, to the #Uplift Eye Serum, Younique has amazing skin care and cosmetics. I could go on and on.

I always want to share the product and the business opportunity.  If you ever want to chat about either, I would love to share with you! This company inspires me, and my wish is to inspire others.  Join #teamsparkleandshine for an amazing 2015!!!!   And yes, I WILL be wearing my Primal Red this New Year! :)

Buddy the Elf Dares

Hello friends!

      Some of you may have seen my Buddy the Elf videos I have recently added to my personal Face Book wall.   And, many are asking about them.  So, I thought I would take a few minutes to explain myself.  You see, I love having fun.  I love being wacky and crazy and having fun with life!

      I started to understand the fear many people have when I ask my team, #teamsparkleandshine, to go out and share their Younique business with others.  So many people live in fear!  People are frozen with anxiety when they think of what others might think of them.  I have many women on this wonderful journey, and this Younique business is helping them financially SO much, yet the are debilitated with thoughts that others will not speak to them, that people will be bothered, that people will get angry with them for sharing.

     I know I am blessed by the fact I really do not care what others think of me.  I would love to have everyone like me and be my friend, but that is just not reality.  But I will tell you what reality is; reality is that when a person puts forth some work into their Younique business, and it helps them pay for gas, groceries, date night, even a mortgage, and that is serious stuff!  And I am willing to risk looking like a crazy fool just to share with others that this Younique business is working for many people.  It is working for them in a virtual world where it allows them to stay home with their children.  It allows them to start taking charge of their financial future.  It is a beautiful thing!  And most of all, I get to see it played out every day!  I am so thankful for this company, and the people that have joined this journey, that I will absolutely dress like Buddy, just to share the opportunity.  And as I tell my team mates to get out of their comfort zones to share and help others learn about this, I am getting out there myself to show them you can be wacky and still share the opportunity!

And, while doing it, I am totally confident rocking the Primal Red!

     So, I have challenged my team mates this:  For each person they share the opportuity with,  and they join #teamsparkleandshine, I will act out a Buddy scene.  And for my customers that place a $100 or more order from my website, I am doing a scene in their honor.  It’s just a way to have some fun in the midst of the season, and celebrate new journeys with this company.

The Meaning of Younique Success

 

yoiunique presenter, work form home, makeup, mascara, build a business I had the chance to attend Younique’s Green Elite Retreat.  I had never been to Utah, so I was excited to see a part of the country I had never been to.  Of course, I was equally excited about what the Retreat opportunity meant.

There are quite a few factors that must be met to attend the Green Elite Retreat.  Technically, you must turn Green twice, and then you are invited by the company. It is an all-expense paid trip once you get yourself to Utah.  This includes a tour of Corporate, dinner at the founder and CEO’s house, Derek, and personal time and training with both founders, Derek and Melanie on Saturday.  I don’t know if any companies invite you into their homes with their families, but by doing this, it made the biggest impact on how they treat their Presenters and their business.

The overall weekend was amazing, obviously.  Who wouldn’t enjoy staying in a top-notch lodge and being catered to?   But, honestly, it’s really so much more than that.  You see, to turn Green, you must sell, and recruit, and you must equip your team with the tools to sell, and recruit.   All businesses can only operate if you sell. We know this.  But, actually, you must empower women to believe they can achieve success.

 Although turning “Green” isn’t the top level, I know that this is just the beginning of a life-changing journey.  It is a life-changing for me, but also for those that see the opportunity before them and change their lives in the process.

You see, this Retreat brought 22 women from all over the country together.  It was a chance to bond, share ideas, and as the company’s vision states:  Uplift, Empower, and Validate women.  It is the chance to see how we can help others, and in return, help ourselves.

We have an amazing journey set before us and I am so happy to be a party of this Younique adventure.

Want to know more about the company or how you can join this journey with me?  I would be happy to help you achieve success.

Red Lips Movement with Younique Primal Red

 

I have always loved women who wore red lipstick.  I wasn’t quite sure why exactly.  I just know I have always admired red lips.   Today I find myself loving them even more.   And, I think I finally know the answer to my fascination!

Younique consultant

You see, to me, red is a symbol of power.  Of deep feeling.  Of confidence!  Yes, that is exactly it!   Now that I have matured a bit in life, I love red!  I love what red stands for, in my eyes.  I love a woman who has confidence.

     When I mention wearing red to women, I am amazed at the amount that will not wear it for the fear of being misinterpreted.  How sad is that?  We fear a color because people might think we are too bold?    Let every woman embrace her life.   Let every woman value herself.  Let every women have enough confidence in all that she is, to WEAR RED!

     I have fallen in love with Younique’s Lip Liner in the color Primal.  It is a deep, yet bright red, that just screams enthusiasm!  I use the lip liner as a lip stain, and totally am thrilled it stays on my lips for hours.
