“Beauty comes from within.” 

A lot of time, effort, and money is spent on beautifying our outward appearances. I thought I’d try to start working on beauty from the inside out. Every bit helps!!! I’ve started using Hair Growth Vitamins with DHT Blocker from ZenWise Labs.  I decided to try out this product to see how my healthy hair would be impacted.

Instanatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Disclosure~Products provided for review/Brandbacker

Hyaluronic Acid is one of my very favorite skin care ingredients. It is a powerhouse moisturizer capable of holding up to 1000 times its weight in moisture. Hyaluronic Acid is so powerful that it is used by plastic surgeons and dermatologists! I recently tried a Hyaluronic Acid Serum from Instanatural.

Instanatural is a Florida based company that manufactures a diverse range of skin care and cosmetic products.  I have been using a number of their products during the last few weeks. Reviews to come!!!

instanatural_hyaluronic_acid_serum_professional_formula_harajuku_girl_fl_brand_backer_review

The Instanatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum comes in a 2 fl oz. glass bottle with a dropper. The serum is not watery which is nice since I apply it to my forehead first and don’t want it running down my face. The Hyaluronic Acid serum also contains other skin loving ingredients: Vitamin C; Green Tea and other antioxidants. It is also a vegan item. Yay!!!

All of the Instanatural products are backed by a LIFETIME Satisfaction Money Back Guarantee too! The guarantee applies no matter where you purchased the Instanatural products from, which is a unique offer.

Sexy Psycho, Morbidly Matching Mavens

Disclosure~Press samples & Purchased by me

MMM-AHS

Andrea from Addicted to the Allure of Beauty and I did another Notoriously Morbid Morbidly Matching Mavens match up look. This time we used a red eyeshadow. I am a lover of red eyeshadow personally. I love all reds and burgundy shades. It seems that red and burgundy enhance brown eyes. Maybe I’m just delusional or seeing what I want to see? Whatever works for you…. -_^

The shade from Notoriously Morbid we chose is called Sexy Psycho. Sexy Psycho is part of the Villans collection and its inspired by Harley Quinn. As of now, the shade is sadly not available. The shop is closed for the holidays and there is a shortage of carmine causing prices to skyrocket. Since there is carmine in this shade, it is NOT a vegan product. The shop will open back up after the beginning part of the 2015. I can’t wait!!!!!

I used several other Notoriously Morbid products.

Eyes: I Call it Mr. Pointy; Nothing is Trivial; Kompanion No.9 with Sexy Psycho

Face: Divination Blushes in Necromancy; Osteomancy; and Palmistry

Lips: Lipgloss for Leatherface with a tiny dab of Osteomancy

How this looks IRL. I wear glasses unless I’m sleeping or taking makeup pics. I’m sure you can tell why I don’t wear them in photos!!! LOVE my new Firmoo.com glasses ( ˘ ³˘)❤

Notoriously Morbid is a cruelty-free company. They do offer a lot of Vegan items and the products are very clearly marked as being Vegan or Non-Vegan. I knew that carmine was an insect derived product. I recently learned that it actually takes about 70,000 female Dactylopius coccus insects to make ONE pound of cochineal. Cochineal contains carminic acid which is what carmine is. Carmine/carminic acid/cochineal is also known as Red number 4. FYI, carmine is used in cosmetics AND food products. Let that sink in. (sorry!)

Insects aside, this is a pretty eyeshadow!!! I apologize if this grosses you out or changes your ability to enjoy red cosmetics or food. I support cruelty-free products and companies as much as possible and hope to replace the few non-cruelty free items in my frequently used products soon! At the end of the day, it is a personal choice for everyone. I applaud companies like Notoriously Morbid for respecting their customers choices!
