Absolutely LOVE every.single.product.O.M.G. LOL!!!!!!
And family,cuzins, lurkers....I just got all these products TODAY...and ya'll know I don't do reviews that quick, honey. However I couldn't resist raving over these products!!! I couldn't hold it in!

-The lipstick is smooth and creamy....I used MAC Cork as a liner.
-The mascara so far is flake free, has a easy to use brush and the formula went on like butter on my lashes...and I'm not a volumizing mascara fan but this mascara gave me instant life!
-The liner....the liner is coal black, sickeningly creamy...its a gel liner in a pencil...I must be behind because I've never used a gel liner pencil...I need all colors in this liner.
-The mineral eyeshadow is medium pigmented, a bit of fall out but really matched my skin tone for a great nude/neutral shimmering eye...I can dig it!

~Review~ Nad's Facial Wand Eyebrow Shaper....

I'm sensitive about my brows...So I always do my own maintenance. I used to be a religious waxer, going to get my brows done at the first sight of unruliness. As I got older and my pockets get tighter, I noticed that certain parts of my brows were not growing in and I was spending wayyy too much when I knew I could probably do it myself! I think I can do all beauty maintenance myself anyway! lol!

Before I tried Nad's Facial Wand Eyebrow Shaper, I tweezed my brows. I normally clean them up  under the arch and trim the top of the brow neatly to preserve them. I want to have brows at age 40, so over tweezing is not an option.

Nad's Facial Wand Eyebrow Shaper is a "100% mistake free" at home waxing kit. It comes with the wand  ,10 Backing Strips( their version of the muslin strips used by waxers) and cleansing wipes.

You can also use this on your upper lip, chin, and cheeks....I definitely need to hit my upper lip.:)





The wand is about as big as my hand. The applicator is one of those twist at the end types. I cleaned after I used it so it wouldn't be a mess the next time I used it.
Here's one of the backing sheets. Even though you get about 20 of them, they are washable with water only. I washed mine, let them dry on the sink and they were good to go the next go around.
This is the first go around...my before picture....
This  is the after picture. I did a good job.:)
I used the Brow Shaper again three weeks later and got great results!

Pros:
-freaking money saver!!!
-level use: moderate...I wouldn't say its easy to use but definitely not hard...If you don't put the wax right on the hair...smooth the strip down good...and pull it off fast...it might not work or you will lose half your brow. I always watch the pros when I'm getting stuff done, so just emulated what I have seen. You would need to take your time and have some patience.

Cons:
-None. The wax itself has no smell, the kit is well put together, the instructions are concise and easy to understand.

Consensus:

If want save some coins and do waxing yourself...this is a great kit. Its also great for the in between visits to your waxer.
