Beauty Friday Faves Things I ♥ Vida/Life

Friday Faves #3


Happy Friday! It has been a long week – did it feel long to you guys? Anyway, this edition of Friday Faves is all about beauty. I love trying new beauty products so I was very excited when I received samples of the items listed today. The end has some randomness – stuff I’m excited about or want to know more about.

KISS InstaWave 


The KISS Instawave is awesome! The revolutionary KISS InstaWave is a full automatic curler that instantly creates beautiful, long-lasting curls with ease. I’m talking some gorgeous ringlets and it works on all hair types. I have thick, long curly hair and it curled my hair with no problems. I took small sections of hair to get a nice full curl. The pic below is from my sister graduation. I know it isn’t the best picture but my hair is curled using the KISS Instawave.


The Instawave is so easy to use because all you need to do is press a button and it grabs your hair. It’s tangle free so don’t have to worry about your hair getting messy. You can create any type of curl you want – use bigger pieces for loose curls or smaller pieces for tighter curls. I used a combination in my image above. KISS Instawave is available in Target, Ulta, and

imPRESS Press-On Manicure 


I have a really bad habit of picking on my nails. Having products like imPRESS Press-On Manicure make it so much easier to keep my nails looking their best. I was really skeptical about using press-on nails but the imPRESS Press-On nails are so easy to use and are flexible so it feels comfortable. They have so many adorable designs but if you prefer traditional French manicure they have that too! Whp has time to be waiting for nail polish to dry? My time is precious so I love that I can apply the nails in minutes with no drying time, no mess. It is waterproof too! When it is time to remove, you won’t have to worry about damaging your nails. It last up to one week. imPRESS Press-On Manicure is available in Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart and Kmart stores worldwide.

KISS Lashes

KISSI’m a pretty simple girl. I don’t usually go all out when I put on makeup but sometimes I want to do something different. I never put on false eye lashes but when I received the KISS eye lashes I wanted to see how I would look. The process was easier than I thought. I followed the directions and was pleasantly surprised to see what a dramatic difference it did to my eyes. I have big eyes so the lashes really made them pop. KISS True Volume Lashes uses 100% human hair. The lashes have tapered ends so they look so natural. KISS lash products are available in Walgreens, Walmart and CVS stores nationwide.

Yardley Artisan Bath Bar Collection
I love good smelling soap. I am one who prefers bar soap over body wash. Yardley London has these new Artisan bath soaps that smell amazing. My skin feels so moisturize and soft. The soaps are made with 100% sustainable vegetable oils, natural butters and beneficial botanicals for soft moisture and skin caring benefits. The extra-gentle formula is softly scented using no artificial colors or harsh chemicals. My kids have eczema and these have been really helpful especially the Oat, Milk & Honey artisan soap.


Are you Nicholas Sparks fans? I am! I’ve read all his books and The Notebook is in my top 3 favorite movies. I can watch it over and over. He seriously pushes my heartstrings with his love stories. Anyway, he’s releasing his next book this October!!!! I cannot wait. 

Oh yeah, Heidi Swapp has Marquee stuff at Target. Not only do I love Target but I love Heidi Swapp’s Marquee letters. They are super cute and I already bought one. I have no idea where I’m going to put it but I bought it anyway because its Heidi Swapp! She has aodrable stuff!

Ok, I know the Go Set A Watchman novel by Harper Lee came out – anyone read it? Your thoughts?

I would love to know what is YOUR favorite beauty product? What is one beauty item you cannot live without?

    I am jealous of those curls! My hair thinks curls are just not good. They fall out within minutes of putting them in, even with hairspray!

    Kiss lashes are great. We got some in a VoxBox not too long ago and were surprised by the quality.
