Thanksgiving is over. Black Friday is over. Back to reality tomorrow. Another Monday to conquer. But, I hope you all had a very enjoyable holiday weekend. To end the weekend and start the week on a positive not, I have prepared a little review for a product that I have been sleeping on. Let’s get into it…
A few months ago I received the Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel by Benefit Cosmetics in Medium/Deep Brown as a added on sample for a Sephora purchase, if I’m not mistaken. really don’t remember. Needless to say, it has been sitting in my makeup bag since I got it. I used it once when I opened the package and never used it again. Recently, I have noticed that my eyebrows have been a little on the thin side. Ughhh!! So, I set out to purchase a product to fill in my brows. I settled on a brow pomade by Ardell from Sally Beauty. I love it and I highly recommend it! However, it takes a little more time to apply than I would like for a product I want to use on a daily basis and that’s not what this post is about.
Re-enter Gimme Brow. I started using this product again and am trying to figure out what I have been doing with my life and why I only used it once! Lol! This product is EVERYTHING! It has a mascara like wand and you just brush it over your brows and VIOLA!, perfectly filled brows! Application is unbelievable easy! The brush even helps you to shape and arch your brows! The color stays all day without fading or running! Since this is only a sample size, I will be purchasing the full size product once I get low on this one…which will be very soon! It sells for $24 at Sephora. Click here to go to the product page.
Have you tried this product before? Do you have any other recommendations for brow products? I’d love to know!
Glitter polish is totally on trend now. It’s fun. It’s sparkly. It’s a party on your fingers…until it’s time to remove it. Nothing is more painful than trying to remove glitter nail polish. Nothing. However, I’ve come across two products that will cut your removal process in half! Check them out below!

Sephora Collection Instant Nail Polish Remover for Glitter, $9.50
This is the best nail polish remover that I’ve come across to remove glitter polish. You can stick your fingers inside one at a time and rub them up and down against the brillo like pad on the inside, or you can remove the pad from the container and use it like a cotton ball. It’s much more convenient this way, in my opinion. This product makes taking off glitter polish as easy as removing regular polish with an acetone, or non-acetone, soaked cotton ball. So, if you are a glitter polish lover, but have been turned off because of the extra work it takes to remove it, fret no more, this is the life saver you have been searching for!
OPI Glitter Off Peel-able Base Coat, $7.25 This base coat allows you to not even need a polish remover. You apply a thin layer of the polish to your nails. Wait for it to dry completely and then apply your favorite glitter nail polish. When you are ready to remove it, you can peel it off from base to tip with your fingernails or by using a cuticle stick. It peels right off just like a sticker. The only downfall is that I would only recommend using this base coat if you are painting your nails for a special occasion because this base makes it very easy for the polish to peel off completely. You will look down at your hand and one of your nails will be entirely bare and that’s no fun!
Will you return to your beloved glitter polish now that you have a hassle free way to remove it? Let me know!
