Experience a healthy line of Cosmetics from Arbonne

unnamed

Arbonne carries a fantastic line of cosmetics. The cosmetics are formulated without dyes, parabens, animal products or by-products, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, mineral oil, petrolatum, phthalates and many more.

Arbonne eyeshadow and lipgloss are my new favorites. When doing everyday makeup, we want reliable, good quality, makeup that looks amazing. This eyeshadow and lipgloss do wonders. The eyeshadow is very easy to apply, unlike many other eyeshadows I’ve tried. The colors are perfect, and it lasts me all day without looking any different when I’m ready for bed. The lipgloss comes in gorgeous colors, and feels great on the lips! It’s smooth texture, is easy to apply and lasts hours with no reapplying.

See for yourself at www.arbonne.com

Hipstiks are a whole new level of comfort

slide3-body

Do you think pantyhose are uncomfortable? Well, I do too, that’s why I switched to Hipstik Legwear. Hipstiks are opaque tights and come in Magnetic Black, Heavenly Navy, and Sumptuous Brown. Unlike normal pantyhose, these tights take comfort into consideration and are like no other pantyhose I have ever worn. The top of the tights have grips so that they won’t slide down and slip off. The top of these tights are also wider and laced, able to hug your waist and not squeeze like the normal tights I’ve always worn. These are the best alternate pair of tights. Still looking fabulous in every outfit and leaving you more comfortable than ever, especially during this hectic holiday season.

Unlike regular pantyhose in which size is determined by height and weight, Hipstik Legwear takes body shape into consideration. Weather your shape is Triangle, Rectangle, V-Shaped, O-Shaped or Hourglass, Hipstiks has a size based on your shape and height.

You can find the perfect size for your shape at www.hipstiks.com
