Review-NYX Professional makeup lingerie lip color

I received this product in a Walmart beauty box that I paid five dollars every season. It’s not a color I would pick for my self. It’s called cashmere-silk and is very ash gray in color and on my skin makes me look frozen or dead.  let talk about the pros and cons.

pros:

  • It is matte if you like that
  • it’s cheap if you buy it online other than NYX
  • when it drys it stays
  • it feels like velvet when applying

Cons:

  • more than one layer it can feel caky and start to flake
  • it only comes in skin tones, I am not into nude lipsticks
  • it has a faint smell
  • the color is patchy
  • it’s hard to remove

Even though this product wasn’t for me, I would like to try more products from NYX cosmetics. if anyone wants me to review their products just email me.

Ancestors-Twin Search- Mareen DuVall-Barack Obama

I have been working on my tree but most of the work has been done for me. as I look at my tree I have noticed a trend of twins. I have followed them back down my DuVall line to a man named Mareen DuVall. He was a French Huguenot who settled in America in 1650. I am searching other branches for twins that are related to Mareen.

Mareen Duvall had twin daughters Johanna and Elizabeth in 1685. His son Jacob Duvall 1715 had twin son James miles and John miles Duvall in 1745.

John Miles Duval 1745 son Gabriel Duvall 1787 had a daughter. her name was Louisiana Duval 1826. she had twin boys James Bell and John B Overall in 1843. Louisiana also had a daughter named Susan Catherine Overall in 1849. she had three children in 1873 that may be triplets or a set of twins and one shared birth year. I could not find birthdates. their names were Louis A & Lula M & Joseph M Clark.

Susan had a daughter Gabriella Lee Clark in 1876. Gabriella had a daughter Ruth Lucille Armour in 1900. Ruth gave birth to three children that may have been twins or triplets. Their names were Virginia Mae & Ralph Emerson & Ralph Emerson Dunham jr in 1916.

Ruth’s son Stanley Armour Dunham 1918 had a daughter Stanley Ann Dunham who is the mother of Barack Obama Jr. he is the 44th president of the United States of America.

This side of the tree was very hard to follow and the twins are unclear. There may have been triplets or it might just be twins and a another birth in the same years.

Ancestors-Twin Search- Mareen DuVall-Harry S. Truman

I have been working on my tree but most of the work has been done for me. as I look at my tree I have noticed a trend of twins. I have followed them back down my DuVall line to a man named Mareen Duvall. He was a French Huguenot who settled in America in 1650.

I will start with Mareen DuVal he had twin daughter Johanna & Elizabeth in 1685. his son Samuel Duval in 1667 had a daughter Elizabeth DuVall in 1697. Elizabeth had a son named Edward Tyler II 1720 he had twins Rebeca & Mary in 1765.

Edward had a son named Robert Langley Tyler in 1751 who had a daughter named Ann Nancy Drusilla Tyler in 1780. Ann had a daughter named Mary Bradford Homes in 1821.
Mary had a son named John Anderson Truman in 1851. John had a possible set of triplets in 1882. John also had a son named Harry S. Truman in 1884. He grew up to be the 33rd President of the United States.

This is how I am related to the 33rd president of the U.S.A and there weren’t many twins on his side.

Review-Loreal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Colored Ink

I received the lippies from Crowdtap for review and I decided t make a post on here about them. I received three shades 436 Radiate,438 Decide, 440 Choose. I find that out of the three I like Choose better . I tend to like darker tones. This is my first time using liquid lipstick and a matte lip product.

 

These lippies do have some transfer and are slightly drying on the lips. The color is buildable and you can layer other products on top. Overall I like this product and have been wearing the color Choose every day.

Review of Josie Maran serums

A few weeks ago, I received a box from Influencer of Josie Maran serums.  The box included two face serums, one for Night and one for Day. The bottles are glass and feel of high quality.

Day: Aragan bright skin vitamin c serum.

It contains a stabilized vitamin C serum that visibly evens tone, reduces the look of dark spots, and brightens dull skin.

This product helps with Dullness and Uneven Texture, Dryness, and Dark Spots.

Highlighted Ingredients:

Night: Argan Smooth Skin Resurfacing Serum

20191022_140852

 It is a resurfacing serum that refines texture, boosts hydration, and supports natural cellular turnover.

This product helps with Fines Lines and Wrinkles, Dryness, and Dullness and Uneven Texture.

Highlighted Ingredients:
– Natural Moisturizing Factor Esters (NMFs): Refine texture and boost moisture retention
– Argan Oil: Infuses skin with vitamin E, antioxidants, and firming omega essential fatty acids.

This product is $70 on Sephora.

Both products are cruelty-free and gluten-free and come in recyclable packaging. They are on Sephora’s clean product list.

I have been using both at night and with my Pond’s anti-wrinkle cream. I tried using the vitamin c in the morning but I don’t have any SPF. The oil makes the sunburn my skin faster. The redness on my face has lightened and my skin feels nice. Both products are fragrance-free but the oil does have a scent. I find the price to be high but if you only need a few drops every day than it’s not that bad. I don’t know if I would buy this product but maybe if I had a budget for it.

Ancestors-Twin Search- Mareen DuVall-My line

I have been working on my tree but most of the work has been done for me. as I look at my tree I have noticed a trend of twins. I have followed them back down my DuVall line to a man named Mareen Duvall. He was a French Huguenot who settled in America in 1650.

He was the first to have had twins Johanna & Elizabeth Duvall 1685. I am a descendant of his son Mareen DuVall 1661. he did not have any known twins. He did have a son Mareen Duvall 1687 who did have twins Samuel & Mareen DuVall 1714. His son Benjamin DuVall 1717 had another set of twins Benjamin Skinner & Lewis DuVall 1750.

Lewis DuVall 1750 had a set of twins Sarah & Nancy DuVall 1772.  Lewis’s son James A. DuVall 1796 didn’t have any twins and neither did his son James A. DuVall 1840.  Alvin Anderson DuVall 1878 James’s son had two sets of twins. The first set was birthed in 1908 and didn’t make it. The second would be my great grandfather  Robert and his twin Joesph 1916.

We haven’t had twins since but our families are much smaller than they use to be.  I have found others that are related to Mareen Duvall and I will be searching their branches for twins. mostly just the straight lines from my tree to theirs.

I will list some famous people that are said to be related to Mareen Duvall.

Harry S. Truman, Barack Obama, Dick Cheney, Robert Selden Duvall, Warren Buffett and maybe more.

Wish List – Dreaming too big- craft

I have been making a wish list on many shops that I would enjoy stuff from, but lately, the lists are bigger than I can ever dream of ever getting. I will be listing my wishlist, which I will now be calling my dream list because they are so big and are mostly craft stuff. you can compare to your wish lists.

I have two Amazon: personal list and a future craft list.

I have a huge list from blick. there are so many art mediums that I would like to try that I have put on this list.

Let me know in the comment below if you too make an insanely large list or do you keep your wish list small. I know mine are unreachable and silly.
