Style Queen Review

Snooki might be known for her wild partying but this year she got a fresh start as a mother. Since settling down, parenting has not been her only project; she collaborated with Style Queen to create four accessory lines for their website.

Style Queen is a website primarily targeting young adults or brides-to-be with swanky looking jewelry at affordable prices. They sent me the Shooting Star Ring which has an adjustable band so it fits the way I want it. I also like how the design decorates a large part of my upper hand but only circumscribes one finger so I get full flexibility. While some celebrities design clothing that doesn’t reflect their personal style, Snooki incorporated her obvious trademarks such as spikes, cat ear headbands, and blinged out faux-gold and silver.  My one critique is that based on my experience, the products aren’t created to last forever. The finish will fade and the metal may break if you start to pull or play with it. Be kind to your jewelry by stashing it on a hang-up rack so it doesn’t get tangled or lost. This way, you’ll have a better chance of keeping around your pretty Style Queen bargains forever.

Product Review: Milani HD Advanced Lip Color in Raspberry Blush

This lipstick comes in a sleek package that is thin enough to fit in a tiny wristlet, or even your pocket, without excessive bulging.  The lipstick rises with the turn of the tube, like any other, but this one clicks so the level of the tube raises slower than normal.  This is helpful for those of us who accidentally cap it without lowering the tube and squash the lipstick formula.

The name Raspberry Blush is very fitting; the company found the perfect way to describe the shade.  However, the sticker on the product and the color on the website is darker than what will appear on your lips in person.  The shade is in between a red and a pink (it is a berry) and it goes on with a lovely sheer pigment so it’s not too crazy for everyday wear.  It really did brighten my whole face!  Miraculously, I put it on one day to go out, intending to wear a full face of makeup, and I nearly forgot to apply blush because my face already looked perky from the lipstick alone.  This lipstick can do more than the 9-5 hour day; it can work for the whole 24 hours and suit any event.  The shade is easy to pull off and I think it would look great for all different skin tones.  I wore it over lip balm and my mouth stayed hydrated for a long time.  Immediately I noticed the sheer pigment (which can be made heavier with multiple coats) and its moisturizing effect, the two product claims advertised online.  The color does not last all day, but a hint of color will remain for quite some time.  And don’t forget, it is small enough that you can put it in your pocketbook and therefore you always have the opportunity to reapply!  In addition to a positive response for the product, the company, Milani Cosmetics, has incredibly kind and helpful representatives who I’m sure will be a terrific aid if you have product questions.
