Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Review!

Let me start off by saying everyday I drink a 20oz latte with 4 shots of espresso. My teeth get yellowed from all that coffee! I feel like I can't keep up.

Then, I was asked if I wanted to try out an at home teeth whitening system. I couldn't say no! The only thing I was concerned about was I did not want my teeth becoming sensitive after. 

My kit arrived in the mail super fast and I was ready!

Basically the whitening gel is in that silver tube. You have to make sure your teeth are pretty dry in order for the gel to stick and work better, so I took a towel to mine. The little blue brush made it easy to get the gel in smaller spaces like the little spaces between teeth! Then in went the mouth guard and the light. The light is real light so my lips held it in place, but I would have the light in for about 20mins (to be honest I caught up on my YouTube   Watch Later playlist so the time went by fast). The light helps to kick start the whitening process, and speed it along.

After 20mins you are done with the light and you can keep in the guard with the gel for an additional 1 hour if you want /have the time to! 

I did not do this every day. Just because life got in the way and I was afraid of it causing sensitivity! But, when I did the system I did not experience any sensitivity. 

Did I see results?
I did!! The top picture is before and the bottom is after! As you can see my teeth are whiter and it even helped that little spot on my front tooth that I've had since my braces!

Divergent Multi-Piece Collector's Kit | Very Swatch Heavy!

I have never been more excited to post about something!!!!

I basically explain the whole story in my video that I posted on my YouTube Channel on how I found this, and how it was a task in it's own, so you can watch that here! HelloBeautifulJM YouTube Channel [ www.youtube.com/HelloBeautifulJM ]

But, I have the kit now, and it is AMAZING!

All of the Divergent Cosmetics kits that they released are only available at Sephora, but I'm sure different brands will have their own products they release for the movie as well.

WARNING: This post is very swatch heavy! Enjoy =]

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush

I've been gathering bits and pieces, and some of them I still haven't used because I am waiting to take pictures of them for you all!! 

It's a perk to have Sephora two shops down from my shop. I go wander and then end up dropping money on beautiful makeup that I just can't resist. 

This is what I got one day walking in to buy nail polish. 

I mean, who could say no to this?! It's seriously beautiful.

I chose the one in Luminous Flush, because Ashleigh who was helping me out in Sephora, helped me decide between Luminous Flush and Golden Fuchsia. They were similar, but Luminous Flush was less glittery, and more subtle highlighting! 

It is very pigmented, which means you can over do it, very easily! 

To see all the shades you can look on Sephora's website

To blog or not to blog...

That is the question!!

I've been gone for a very, very, VERY long time!

I apologize. The reason I just fell off the face of the earth for about 6 months, is because I just felt like my heart wasn't totally into it. "It" meaning this blog.

I got frustrated, I was self conscious, and I was defeated.

Some things have changed within the 6 months I've been gone, and I've decided to be a different person. Meaning, I'm going to be more myself, rather than what I think a "Beauty Blogger/Guru" should be like.

I'm not going to bother thinking about what other people think, and I'm going to just let it all go.

Before, I hid that I had a YouTube channel and a blog. Not anymore! 2014 I am going to let the world know that HelloBeautifulJM.com exists!

But, I need support from all of you reading. I really want this to be a place where we can interact, and on my YouTube channel, that I will be kick starting again.

This blog will not only be about Beauty, makeup, Fashion [my style], but it will also be about life. For me, wearing makeup gives me a boost of confidence that I can be done up, and feel on top of the world. Instead of wearing makeup to try and hide things, or be someone I'm not.

So, what to do you say? Are you with me on this journey?

Maybelline Color Tattoo | Edgy Emerald

Hello everyone! 

While I was at Wal-mart the other day, I found a whole display with Maybelline's new Limited Edition Color Tattoos! The funny part about this display was that it was hidden behind another display for nail polish! So, pretty much all the colors were there. 

I picked up two because I literally had to stick my hand behind the other display and just pull some out and look at the colors. Then the ones I liked originally I lost track of where they were, so I decided on two before my boyfriend got too impatient.

Hey everyone!

I am extremely multitasking today and my computer hates it! Anyway, I've been uploading videos a lot more frequently than I've been updating my blog =[ I'm sorry! But, I'm trying to find ways to give them both love.

Today is involving my first impression video/review on the Revlon Photoready BB Cream that I posted.
