This Week In Polarbelle's Beauty World

Where did this week go?  For that matter, where did September go?  It just flew by at such a pace, it made my head spin!!!  This week, I have three youtube videos that went live and if you missed them, they'll be below.  I don't want you to miss out on anything you may have wanted to know in these areas, or the associated giveaways and how to find them.   Also, please visit Jamie of The Beauty Of Life today where I am honored to have been interviewed and featured today.  Jamie has helped me through difficult times and I'm really very honored that she chose to feature me today.

We started the week with my full Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Matte Longwear Foundation thoughts and review.  It was a little difficult for me to find the right color because of skintone and undertones.  I have settled on 230, just for an FYI.  Can you wear it if you have dry skin?  Watch to find out.


My Ipsy Glam Bag seems to be on a new schedule arriving much later in the month than usual.  And my Sephora Play box came the same day.  Logic dictates that's the time to do an unboxing video.  Check and see what I received.  I'm also curious if you received the same or different.


If that's not enough to keep you busy this week, I have reviewed the Lorac LA Experience Face and Eye palettes....well, four out of five anyway.  These will be all sold out soon as the price was slashed in half at Ulta.  At the end of the video, I introduce a new giveaway taking place on my Instagram account.  The giveaway is for the highly popular Colourpop Yes, Please eyeshadow palette.  I wanted to pick something special to thank my Instagram followers, so if you are one, please enter.  If not, well, what are you waiting for??  Won't you join in the fun?


There are a couple of days left on my Pixi Beauty giveaway.  You can enter via my blog or my channel.  I'm giving these items away to someone.  It may as well be you.

There's a lot coming up in the next few months.  I've been scrambling for pictures, visiting with the wild ponies down the street, and mapping out what's coming up, so please check back often.  We're just one week out from my Blogoversary day, and you know we'll be having another giveaway or two.

I had a hard time adjusting to the idea of fall.  And now the brush is growing in the desert making my favorite wild horse watching places a little more difficult.   I know it's the favorite season for so many people, so I'm trying to adjust my attitude and get into it.  What is your favorite thing about or to do in fall?

Revlon Hair Products Review AND Valentine Blog Hop Giveaway Plus A Suprise!



I'd like to invite you to join a Valentine's Blog Hop set of giveaways by the Beauty Blog Coalition.  The links to them will load at the bottom of this list after my Rafflecopter widget.   For my giveaway, I have a set of Revlon hair care items.  They sent me a set to try out and tell you about as well as a set for a giveaway!!  Very nice of them, AND they told me about the One Step Blow Dryer and Stying Tool, which I bought as soon as it came out.  I'm indebted to Revlon forever for telling me about this tool/blow dryer because it has truly changed my life.  You can read about that in the previous link.

One lucky winner will get the following from my giveaway.  I'm so sorry but due to size and weight, I must keep the entrants to Canadian and US shipping locattions only.  :(  However, if you do the manatory entries on each blog, worldwide entrants are eligible to win the grand prize.

Lorac Champagne Dreams palette

Oh wait!!  There's a Lorac Champagne Dreams palette!!!  I put that in the giveaway so that you'll be able to fix your hair and your face up for all your date nights...or everyday wear.

I had a Revlon brush, kind of similar to the one in the middle, all through the 70s and 80s.  We moved and I lost it somewhere in the process.  It styled my hair like nobody's business!  I'd been looking for something that I liked ever since.  I've bought fancy brushes and I've bought cheaper brushes.  I'd use them and toss them out of frustration.   But, for some reason, I thought I had to find the right brush in a salon.  It should have been so simple for me to think of trying another Revlon brush.  Anyway, fast forward to now and enter the Revlon Scalp Sensations Styling Brushes.

The big paddle brush on the bottom is my favorite.  All the brushes are ionic for less frizz, and have nice nylon bristles with little bulbs to be soothing to your scalp.


The brushes are extra gentle, suitable for all ages, and retail for less than $10 each!!!  It's a steal.  Here are the other two.


Whatever your brushing preferences, there is a shape for you.  The other Revlon items will be an answer to prayer, especially if you have thick hair.  This is what you're dreamed of!!  (I have thick curly hair which I straighten).


XL elastics for hair!!!!  If you know the struggle of "2x isn't enough, 3 is too tight", you'll love these!  You can actually get these around your hair and have a secure hold!!

You also receive a striped headband...and look at this thick haired people!  Clips with grips!!!!  It can be so hard to get a clip to stay in thick hair!!


You can find these Revlon items at Target or any other drugstore that you choose.  And check out the new blow dryer.  It's changed my world!!!!!!!!!

So the surprise part of the giveaway is the Lorac Champagne Dreams palette that I added.  It's so pretty.


Enter my giveaway via Rafflecopter.  There are two items that are mandatory, as you'll see, and then many other options to build points toward winning.  Then hit up the blogs in the link as well to be eligible to win those items.  Have fun!
