St Tropez Self Tanner Review

<iframe src="" width="468" height="60" scrolling="no" border="0" marginwidth="0" style="border:none;" frameborder="0"></iframe>

   Ok, so I may just have to consider my self a self tanning encyclopedia, or maybe a self tanner freak? Either way, I have been self tanning quite a few years now and I have tried just about every self tanner they have on the market. I have tried awesome ones, decent ones, and some extremely horrible self tanners. St Tropez, although one of the more popular ones out there, is actually the most recent self tanner I have tried. So, let's do a quick review. 
   I opted for the starter kit which are three sample size products. The original St Tropez Self Tanner itself has a price tag of $38. I did not want to spend that much on a product that I wasn't sure what the outcome would be.

The starter kit comes with a travel size exfoliater, bronzing mousse, and prep and maintain lotion. Yes, I incorporated all 3 exactly like it stated in the instructions. 

Exfoliater- of course I shaved first, then used a standard loofah to exfoliate. I love the smell of this exfoliater and I found I did not need a lot of product to get the job done. A+

Prep and Maintain Lotion- now the instructions were too after using the exfoliater, apply the Prep and Maintain lotion and you should do this the day BEFORE you apply your self tanner. Which is what I did but after my first use, I don't see any problem in just applying a few hours before applying self tanner so that it can all be done in one day. The scent of this lotion is ABSOLUTLEY AMAZING. Honestly, I would just straight buy the lotion no doubt. A++

Self Tanner- now I was a little imitimidated by the size of this product. But let me tell you, the little travel size that comes with this starter kit will last you a good 4 to 5 times. It does have a light color guard so you can see where the product is going, which I like. The color pay off I was slightly thrown off. It was a bit lighter then I was expecting but not in a bad way if that makes any sense. It was just enough color to make a difference. No streaks, just a perfect mousse that goes on smooth and moisturizing. If you were looking for a darker tan, you could definitely build it up. It takes about 4 to 8 hours to build your color and the color guard washes off with no problem. 

UPDATE*** I somehow lost my before and after pictures of using this self tanner. BUT, it's been almost a week which means that it's that time again. So, I will update in a new post my before and after pictures so you can have a look!

Conclusion: Is this a good self tanner? Absolutley! Is it the best I have tried? No. It is however, very versatile so I would say out of all the self tanners I have tried, this one I believe would be a winner for most skin types and shades. With that said, I do recommend this self tanner for anyone interested in finding one of the best and most sold out there. 
   I would also like to throw out there that I have also picked up a new, and rather popular as of the late, self tanner! So, please let me know in the comments if you are interested in a review!

Bh Cosmetics 120 Color Palette 2nd Edition Review

    Bh Cosmetics 120 Color palette 2nd edition

  So, I have had this palette for quite some time now and decided to do a review for a couple reasons. Number one being it's an awesome palette! Number two reason being that I have been on the fence for quite a while now about purchasing the Urban Decay Electric palette. 

  Urban Decay Electric Palette  

  We all know how much I love Urban Decay. And if you don't... I LOVE URBAN DECAY... Ok anyways... I own a few palettes by Urban Decay and pretty much use the Naked and the Naked 2(I do not yet have the Naked 3) everyday. Here comes the BUT. BUT, a part of me cannot justify spending $49 on palette with only 10 very bright colors that I probably would not use everyday, especially in the cooler months. To me when I think electric colors, I think of summer. But maybe that is just me. I'm not knocking anyone who does and I am definitely not knocking Urban Decay's Electric palette by any means. I'm sure it's wonderful just like every other palette of theirs that I do own.
   The point of this post is that I realized that I have this exceptional palette from bh Cosmetics that has 120 colors, many which are pretty electric, but also many neutral colors as well. was a fraction of the cost. I believe I paid in the $14.95 area for 120 COLORS! Here are some swatches. 

Swatches from bh Cosmetics 120 color 2nd edition palette 

  As you can see, the colors are pretty pigmented. I have had this palette for about 6 months now and I have found that I can create endless looks with it. But what I absolutely love about the palette is the endless color selections. You have your brights, neons, neutral, and metallics. I have never had any problem with fall out from this product either. The eye shadows are a bit more chalky then say those of Urban Decay shadows which are a bit more packed and creamier. But the staying power of these shadows are great. 
   So in conclusion, will this palette keep me from eventually purchasing Urban Decay's Electric pallete? Probably not because a big part of me feels I just HAVE to have it. But I also feel that if I do eventually get it and try it out, I would probably find many of the same colors and outcomes of the fabolous palette I already own. Thanks for reading and below I have a posted a more 'neon' look I did with the bh Cosmetics 120 Color Palette 2nd edition.
