Hey guys! This past week I got the priveledge of reviewing Maybelline’s newest liquid lipstick line from Influenster, I was given two different colors to play with. So, here’s my thoughts:
Longwearing: YES! Holy moly, this bad boy did not want to come off, I applied it per directions and went on my way. I drank from a straw, water bottle and even had greasy pizza and my lipstick didn’t budge throughout the day. I woke up the next day with it still on.
Drying: No, it comes with a lip conditioner that leaves your lips feeling smooth and soft.
Flakey/Clumpy: No, it wore very smoothly but if you’re lips are chapped you do need to use a lip scrub to remove dead skin because then it will flake like most all liquid lipsticks I’ve tried do.
Removal: The directions say use makeup remover, I used a makeup remover cloth and had to wipe a few times and it was off!
I played around with the colors and I actually loved them mixed together, in my picture above I applied 2 coats of Keeping up the Flame and 2 coats of Constant Toast over it then sealed it in with the conditioner.
- Lighter: Constant Toast
- Darker: Keeping up the Flame
I rate these a 10/10, liquid lipstick is my favorite and I have a few other brands and they do not last as long as ColorStay 24. They also have 30 different color shades to choose from and the best part is they’re only $10.49 so they’re very affordable!
* I recieved Maybelline SuperStay 24 lip color complimentary, but all opinions are my own.

I’ve recently started eating Low Carb/Keto lifestyle and I am loving it but there are days when I miss PIZZA 🍕🍕. It’s one of my favorite foods, so I decided to give this a go and see how it turned out to my surprise it was super good and my kids loved it!
Makes 6 personal pizzas
- 1 eggplant
- Mozzarella cheese
- Low carb pizza sauce (or make your own)
- Optional veggies
Cut eggplant into thick slices, sprinkle with sea salt and lay on top of paper towels for about 20-25 mins. This gets the excess water out so they won’t be super soggy and gross. Preheat oven to 400, and bake 15-20 mins. Remove and add sauce, cheese and toppings, broil for 2-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Carb Count 5.5 carbs per pizza
- Eggplant: 4.5
- Pizza Sauce (I did about 2 tbsp): 1
- Mozzarella: 0
- Pepperoni: 0
Pizza lovers this is for you! 🍕🍕🍕
ZERO CARBS! 🙌🏻👏🏻💁🏼
- 20 pepperoni slices
- 2 mozzarella string cheese
Bake at 400 for 3-7 minutes pending on how crispy you want them! I did the full 7 and they were crisp (hence the brownish color) and tasted like bacon!!
I found some Ragu Pizza Sauce at the store but I felt the carbs were too high, 3 carbs per 1/4 cup. So I opted not to dip mine in the sauce but you can dip for the full pizza experience. My family really loved these too, we ate them up within a few minutes!
Low Carb as in ZERO Carbs (pending on what cheese you use)
Drop a dollop of cheese onto a baking dish with parchment paper (do not use wax paper this will end badly, trust me, lol). If you don’t have parchment paper then you can spray oil on the baking dish.
These cook really fast, in about 5 mins or so, remove them with a metal spatula and allow to cool. They taste like crispy Cheezits, so yummy! My kids love them! Enjoy!
❌ WARNING! This recipe is highly addicting, you’ve been warned!
Cheesecake is where it’s AT, I’m not kidding, this recipe is great. The carbs are a little higher with larger servings so I would eat this only on occasion if you want a big helping!
Total Carbs: 38
- 4 servings 9.5 carbs
- 6 servings 6.3 carbs
- 8 servings 4.75 carbs
Follow directions on box of Cheesecake Jello, replace milk with heavy whipping cream. Whip up with your mixer until fluffy, thick consistency. Store in fridge or eat right away.
🔅Notes: You can also use any jello flavor mix you want.

Today’s box included the newest dry shampoo line from Dove. I normally do use another brand of dry shampoo because I wash my hair every other or every 2 days so I love to freshen up by day 2!
First off, it smells really great, I’m big on scents, so I was happy about that. 😍 It’s very light, it didn’t make hair feel chalky, dirty or heavy (yes, some dry shampoos do that 😩) and it didn’t leave a powder residue everywhere once it was rubbed in. Finally, it gave my fine hair volume! I definitely recommend checking out this product, it has a great price point and can be found in your local stores!
