Heavy on Fashion Beauty Reviews - Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream*

Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! I am so excited to check out Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream in Wheat. I never tried Studio Gear cosmetics before so I was very please to get a feel of their CC cream. Oh and I will have a video review on my instagram page @heavyonfashion sometime this week! 

Any who....Let get down to reviewing business! 

At first, I was surprised how light the cream was and a bit afraid how it would look on. As you see above.Fortunately, once I rubbed the CC cream in, it blended with my skin tone. Magic!

This CC cream gave my hand a serious does of moisturizer but it was not greasy, which was a major plus! I also like that you only need about a size of a nickle, maybe a quarter, to apply to your face for full coverage. Hence this bottle can last for a while. I also love that I did not have a reaction to Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream given my sensitive skin. Yes Ma'am!  I would recommend using Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream when you want sport the natural look without going Au naturel! This CC cream pairs well with a really good lip gloss like Savannah Beewax lip gloss or any slightly tinted gloss.

Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream is very light and lasts for a long time. You will also get 72 hours of moisture.  Oh and did I mention Studio Gear Hydrating CC cream has a SPF 20. Great protection for  the skin especially this summer. Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream retails for $34! 

The lovelies at Studio Gear are giving all my fashion divas and gurus a 10% Off discount if you enter the discount code: bloggercc

Mally Beauty Essentials 

I have heard of Mally's Beauty products but never had the chance to try out her line until today. So far I really like that Mally High Shine liquid lipstick and eye color shadow stick . These beauty essentials will last the entire day. In order words, Mally is on for the long haul. I love the consistency of the shadow stick, it goes on very smooth. The High Shine liquid lipstick goes on my lips like silk and looks great on. I would say that the Party Girl pink is a great color for casual wear. This line is great and I can't wait to check out more from Mally.

Purity Vodka

I am always down with a good drink. I was introduced to Purity Vodka at an Accessories Council event and I am a fan. Purity Vodka retails for $39.99 for a 750ml bottle, which is a really good price. It is smooth, affordable, and can be mix with just about anything. I usually don't boast about alcohol on Heavy on fashion, so you know it is good.  I personally love my Purity Greyhound (Grapefruit and Purity Vodka), when I have a date in with the hubby.

I always love a beauty product made in the USA. It is even better when it is uber affordable Bodycology is that beauty product line filled with yummy scents that retail for $3.99! Yup, you read right $3.99, omg the price so good! I had the chance to check out the last scents from the collection, Floral Rush, and Scarlet Kiss. I would describe Floral Rush as of course a floral scent, like honeysuckle. Floral Rush is a great scent for the spring. My favorite is Scarlet Kiss, this scent is extremely flirty and sweet. It is yummy on.

NCLA Melody Ehsani Nail Wraps 

A photo posted by Malanb (@heavyonfashion) on

NCLA is known for their fantastic nail products. Today I had the chance to check out  Massai and Caddyshack Cleopatra  nail wraps. The Nail wraps are very easy to put on. As you all know by now, I am obsessed with nail art. If you can't get yourself to a killer nail artist like iam_nailzbytyh, opt for these bold and colorful nail wraps that are easy to do at home. You only need a nail polish remover and clear nail polish. The Nail Wraps set includes 26 nail wraps and a nail file. The Massai nail set is full of colorful patterns that are clearly an ode to the Massic tribal beadwork.  The geometric patterns are fashionable and stylish. The Caddyshack Cleopatra is an imaginative look at how Cleopatra would roll in the present day. I love the Cadillac on hydraulics decal and the vivid colorful Egyptian patterns.

The Massai Nail Wraps retail for $16
The Caddyshack Wraps retail for $18

It is time to bring out you spring dress and a pair of bandelettes inner thigh guards. You probably want to know what are Bandelettes Inner thigh guards. They are elastic lace thigh bands that help prevent chafing in the inner thigh area. Very useful when wearing your favorite dress. Bandelettes come in various designs and colors. They also look great on, very pin - uppish. The nonslip silicon is great, no worries about these guards slipping, thank goodness. This is a great way to look sexy without being in pain. These Bandelettes in Black retail for $14.99

Buy a pair of Bandelettes at http://www.bandelettes.com/

Micro Touch One Classic Safety Razor

I have to say, I was a huge fan of those multi-blade razors. Well after using Micro touch One Classic Safety razor, I am never going back to those multi-bladed razors again. The Micro Touch One Classic Safety Razor is a smooth shave, easy to clean, and reusable. This razor gave me the closest shave I ever had without any nicks or irritation. It is so good I am buying this for my hubby. I also love that you can  use any double edge razor blade for refills. Very affordable! 

Buy your own Micro Touch One Classic safety Razor for just $19.99

Precision MD Celfix DNA

Finally, I had the chance to review Precision MD celfix DNA Ceramide Renewal Nourishing Cream.  It is great on dry skin and didn't give my sensitive skin any issues. I use this as a night cream about 3 times a week though it is mild enough for daily use. Many of Precision MD products can be found online and various dermotogist offices throughout the country. The price for this product varies depending on where you surf in cyber space. I would personally suggest using the Where to Buy search locator and buy these and other Precision MD products at your local dermotologist.
