I had anothe rone of those long scrolling sessions on Instagram, when I came across a few
of my favorite beauty, fashion, nail, and accessory guru's posting gorgeous photos, that all had one particular hashtag in common, #Nurbesten. After a little bit of hashtag digging, I didscovered a lovely Nurbesten rep named Lucy, appropriately handled @nurbestenangel. She was so sweet to allow me to to chose $30 US dollars in product to share with all of you, and of course, a 10% OFF Coupon ( AMDR10) for your first order, and trust me, you will have a blast spending any amount on this site!
Nurbesten.de has everything from cosmetics, tools and brushes, nail polishes,
nail stampers,holograpic nail glitters, accersories, clothing, cell phone cases, jewelery... I could literally go on and on. I decided to stay within the Makeup and beauty realm for my first visit, to suit my followers best, but rest assured, we will dig in further in the future, especially if you help meout by trying things for yourself using my 10% discount code: AMDR10.
The first product that caught my eye was the array of professional eyeshadow palettes. The sizes ranged from duos to over 100 shade palettes. I found a lovely professional quality palette with 15 stunning Fall type shades, warm enough that I can work them back into Summer as well! The shades are so versatile, that I could actually see it being something I reach for year-round. A few shades in this palette are amazing dupes for some shades I have by The Balm and the Lorac Pro 2 Palette! This is a must have addition to your makeup kit for under $15 USD,
As I chose my palette, I realized that I have been missing one important eyeshadow brush to complete my collection of tools for more professional makeup work. I was happy to quickly locate the most PERFECTLY small and chiseled pencil brush for under $4!! The tip is sharp and the bristles are super soft, so it not only gets eyeshadow precisely into my crease, but it blends out the edges like magic!
To top off my eyes I wanted to find a way to amplify my eyelashes, even though I am currentlyanti-falsie. I find it nearly impossible with my skillset to apply them. I found a couple of different options for 3D Fiber Mascara kits! I decided that I simply could not lose with Mixxu's Fiber Mascara kit available on this site for only $9.99! This stuff is great, I can even use the base coat alone for dark, flirty lashes!
All of these amazing items were in my cart, ready to go, when I noticed I still had $4 to spend! I decided that I would explore the plethora of lip options that Nurbesten has. I decided to try this gorgeous shade of Matte Lipgloss (oxy-moron?) by Born Pretty! The shade is what I expected it to be based on
the color of the packaging. It applied easily with the long, slender, and slightly curved doe-foot applicator.I love that I had perfectly opaque coverage in just one coat. The finish was matte as stated, it dried quite quickly, wore very comfortably, and lasted over 4 hours before I had to touch it up. I do plan on trying all of the shades, at the pretty price of $4!!
I highly recommend Nurbesten.de to anyone wanting to spoil themselves or a friend with luxury, fun, and practical items. There is literally something for everyone on this site. The Customer service teamis so kind and helpful, and that alone is a huge shopping perk for me!
Forget everything you know about buying prescription eyeglasses!
I was born one of the many Americans, with less than perfect eyesight. This has really changed the way I do things, like remembering to put them on first thing in the morning, choosing the right frames for me, and the expenses involved with eyeglasses, can be a bit overwheming. The thing I dislike most about shopping for new prescription glasses, is just the over-all inconvience! Not only do you have to make a physical visit for the exams, but there is also choosing frames from hundreds of choices in a limited time, waiting for them to ordered and made with your visionary needs, but going back to pick them up when all is said and done. I could go on about the obsurd prices for frames and prescription lenses as well.
I was so excited to find Glassesshop.com on Instagram. I looked through the gallery of gorgeous frames, that look like designer specks, but at unbelieveable prices! Imagine shopping for a FULL SET of prescription eyeglasses from the comfort of your own home... This is now a reality for me, and I am so excited to share the convience and affordability that Glassesshop.com has to offer! They really make it easier than ever to shop, with an option to virtually try on different styles using a photo of yourself that you upload onto the site. I found this extremley helpful in narrowing down which pair would be perfect for me!
I was able to get a completed set of beautiful prescirption eyeglasses for less than $40.00 and that included shipping! I was so happy when they arrived to me, when I opened my package and saw that they looked even more beautiful in person (complete with sparkle detail!) They came in a sturdy plastic GlassesShop.com case and lens cleaning cloth, a free amminity that I was not expecting! The best part of the whole online shopping experience was when I put the frames on, and they felt perfectly shaped for my face, fit flawlessly, looked gorgeous, and best of all... my vision is exactly as I hoped and expected with the glasses!
The process of ordering my specks was also super simple! I just had to use the information that is written on my lens prescrition. At the time of GlassesShop contacted me about doing this review, I had lost my prescription, so I was very upset thinking that I would have to go back to the Eye Doctor to get a new prescrition, but GlassesShop.com was there to help! One of the kind staff avised me to call the office and to jot down the information I needed. I was not aware that you could do it that way, so the customer service really exceeded my expectations!
GlassesShop.com was also kind enough to provide a coupon code for my followers! They have provided each on of you with a generous 50% off! The coupon code is: GSHOT10
Why Christie Brinkley's Illuminating Facial Oil is my new skincare staple!RSS Feed
If you have been visiting my blog for any amount of time, you may know that I am a strong believer in the power of oil. I have learned that oil can be an amazing cleanser, moisturiser, and a whole list of possible uses when it comes to beauty and skincare. I was always taught that oil on your face was a "bad thing," but over the last three years I have been using essential oils and coconut oil on my skin, and have had the best skin of my life! I certainly never saw that coming at age 28.
I have used different "cleansing oils" on my face for the last few years, and I have discovered that the oils are more gentle, clean my skin better, and my skin truly looks more clear and radiant than it ever did when I used traditional facial cleansers. I was now prepared to hunt down more oil based skincare products, to see if I would continue to see bettering results. I was sent this lovely Illuminating Facial Oil from Christie Brinkley Beauty. Christie Brinkley is a shining star, never showing her age, so I thought that her line would be a great pleace to start, as my skin is not exactly as youthful as my early days!
I am in love with every aspect of this product from the gorgeous light blue glass bottle, to the convient dropper included in the bottle. The oil itself has a lovely formula that has a super light and extra silky texture! You are to apply this oil onto freshly cleansed skin, and to follow up with a moisturiser. I love that it actuallly does add illumination to the oarts of my face where the light hits, without looking greasy or artificial... it's like a perfect natural highlight! This serum smells lightly of something FRESH, that I cannot put my finger on, but with all of the botanical ingredients it could be a general combination of scents. I can apply my makeup without compromising the application or longwear of any of my foundations!
In conclusion, I highly reccomend that any skin type give this luxurious facial oil a try! It has done wonders to balance my skin. I live in Florida, where humidity and heat often distress my skin, I feel as if this oil has been repairing and even protecting my skin from further drying or damage! I hope that this product will be in my life for years to come, and I cannot wait to try more of Christie Brinkley's amazing skincare line
Natural deodorant has been a regular staple in my life for about two years now, and I have never even considered looking back. I strongly encourage my readers to look into the connections between traditional Anti-perspiriants and breast cancer, at your own will. That being said, I found a brand that worked flawlessly for me! Scmidt's Deodorant comes in a wde variety of scents, that actually work! I love the orginal formula, but some find the formula to be slightly irritaing to the armpits, people with senstive skin (My boyfriend, for example.) He loved that he could work in a hot kitchen all day and that he could depend on this product to do it's job. The only issue was that his armpits were not too happy with the baking soda in the original formula.
He was sad that he had to go back to traditional deodorants, because in his opinion Schmidt's did work better! After about two weeks have gone by, I am startled and excited by a post from Schmidt's on Facebook! This post was featuring their brand new sensitive skin formula, it was as if they had read my mind, and answered an unspoken prayer! I jumped imidiately at the chance to write them an e-mail asking if they would like to be featured on my blog... boy, am I one lucky ducky! Schmidt's was kind enough to send my Boyfriend a Tea Tree Stick (His very favorite essential oil!) and a Geranium Stick for me.
It is amazing to me that they were able to formulate something even more amazing than the original formula! This stick glides on like butter! I have never used a silkier deodorant in my life! The scent was gorgeously natural and clean. I could go on and on, but the real kicker is the fact that I have not experienced one single case of irritation or razor burn since I began using this formula.
The part of this exerience that was the most shocking and exciting was trying the Fragrance Free stick. I did not have incredibly high hopes for any deodorant that is fragrance free, let alone a natural variety. I was amazed when I used one swipe on each underarm, and over 24 hous later, 24 sweaty, humid, Floridaian hours later, I was dry and ordor free!
I so happy that I discovered this brand, and I must say that each new product launch makes me happier than the last! I also wanted to let you all know that Schmidt's has released a brnd new fragrance in the original formula. The fans voted and we now have Rose + Vanilla! Schmidt's was kind enough to send me a (new) travel sized stick in this scent, that I will be giving away on Instgram as a part of a huge eauty bundle! Make sure to follow me @AmbeeNicole88 !
Even better than the orignial!

Magic Minerals Bronzer Kit by Jerome alexander.
I am a huge fan of The Orignal Magic Minerals Foundation, that i had actually purchased at a Dollar General store, in the "As seen on TV section." I was not expecting it to be my new go -to foundation, but I adore the stuff! I have done a YouTube video about it, it was that fantastic! I decided to contact the company, to see what was new in the world of Magic Minerals! I was sent the Bronzer Kit, in exchange for an honest review!
I love the packaging that showcases a host of products including the bronzer compact, a professional kabuhki brush, an eye shadow brush, and a clear lipgloss! I was pleasantly surprised to read on the package that the shades in this compact are not just for the face, but for eyes and lips, as well! You can actually apply a shade to your lips and seal it in with the long lasting, yet not at all sticky clear coat! I have not yet had as much luck using the shades as an eyeshadow, but I believe that I can fix that by investing in an eyeshadow primer.
I love the super soft and buttery texture of the bronzer. It applies so smoothly, and I found it very easy to build it up, while keeping an all natural tone. You can use the shades all together for a nice all-over the face pop of warmth. I like to use a small contour brush to create a super soft and natural definition. The light pink shade is one of my favorite of the shades to play with because I can use it to highlight, and correct any overusage of other shades.
In conclusion, I highly reccomend this kit for anyone from begginners, to fullface flawless experts! I also have to mention that the quality of the brushes included are quite lovely! The eyeshadow brush is amazing for packing on glittery eyeshadows to the lid, and I even had success using it as a concealer brush! The Professonial Kabuhki brush was perfectly soft and dense, and would make a lovely addition to anyone's brush collection! I really enjoyed this kit, and I cannot wait to see what Jerome Alexander comes up with next!
