Five Beauty Products that Deliver Instant Results

5 Beauty Products For Instant Results






Dear fashion enthusiasts,

In this post, I’d like to share my five favorite beauty products that deliver positive results instantly. I absolutely love them and would certainly purchase them again.

 1. The Perfect Skin Enhancer

“One the biggest mistakes women make when it comes to makeup is not taking care of their skin first. It’s important to ensure that the skin is clean and bright before applying any makeup.” — Makeup artists at fashion week events.

So true! You can use the best makeup products expertly, yet, if your skin is dull and in bad condition, no trick will make you look your best.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum® Vitamin C Collagen Booster from Sephora is an amazing product that delivers instant transformation. It’s my favorite. It works when applied immediately after cleansing and before makeup application. It has a nice orange scent and a light, oil-free texture.

2. Nail Perfection: Butter London And Tails

I work in the jewelry industry. When I serve customers, I have to make sure my nails are in great condition. I love to use Patent-Gel Top & Tails between my trips to the salon. It gives a patent leather shine without harsh chemicals or UV lamps. I especially love the top coat for long-lasting results.

3. Natural Shimmer: Sephora Microsmooth Baked Sculpting Trio

Prior to discovering this product, I used a light blush to brighten my face. Now, I apply this three-in-one formula, which includes a bronzer, to achieve a sun-kissed natural glow. The luminizer is great for highlighting cheekbones, yet, I personally use it under my eyebrows to make my eyes pop. The result is a natural healthy glow with a no makeup look and feel. I like to carry it in my purse for a day-to-night transition to achieve a more dramatic look.

 4. Pampered Hair

Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner with Peppermint and Eucalyptus is probably one of the best hair products I’ve ever used. Don’t be fooled by its simple packaging. This conditioner works magically on my unruly, thick hair. It tames it with nourishing natural ingredients and detangles perfectly. It’s an especially great conditioner, if your hair is dry and prone to breakage. Plus, the price is fantastic considering that the product is not loaded with chemicals. It delivers soft, silky hair immediately.

5. Complexion Helpers

Sephora blotting papers. This is a must-have product, especially for a woman with busy lifestyle. This will help you keep a clear, matte complexion. I always carry this product in my purse. I like to use it for a day-and night-transition because it refreshes my skin. Then, I reapply Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Sculpting Contour Trio.

Hats, Knits, And Molten Silver

 Dear fashion enthusiasts!

I devote this post to my new discovery — Alona jewelry.

First of all, I am excited to announce that I won a Polyvore contest, and as a result, I was given an Alona Kimora silver ring. The piece is very unique and looks like a molten silver drip down the finger. I absolutely love it.


Alona jewelry first captured my attention at Mackage in Soho. The two businesses had a collaborative event. I think both brands stunningly compliment each other with their edgy styles and quality. Alona is about making a serious statement. Featuring a unique blend of avant-garde and edginess, most of Alona’s jewelry characterized by fusion of European and Middle Eastern aesthetics. It’s a very striking combo. I’m very happy that I discovered this designer.

What do you think of Alona’s ring? Would you pair it with a few stacking rings or wear alone as a statement? How would you style it?
