TKO AB STRETCH 4 WAY RESISTANCE BANDS

 *product was sent to me for my consideration, my review is genuine and my own opinion*

 Are you guy's ready to get into shape this year? Of course you are. Continuing my series of #LookGood #FeelGood #2016 posts, today's review is for the TKO AB Stretch Way Resistance Bands. You have heard me talk about TKO Fitness before and how they started out as leader in boxing equipment back in 1996. Since then TKO has expanded into fitness equipment, accessories and lifestyle apparel so it's no surprise that the newest edition to their collection is top notch quality and budget friendly. You'll get an intense core workout and have loads of fun while using the bands. Check out the brief video from LIVESTONG.com to get an idea of how easy it is to incorporate TKO's 4 Way Bands into your fitness routine. Of course you can even come up with your own stretch exercises! Have fun. Stay Healthy! Stay Beautiful! XOXO

Adjustable tension for varied resistance
Lightweight and portable so you can take it on-the-go.Tightens abdominals, sculpts arms and  back. Increase core muscle tone, strength and flexibility. Upper and Lower body workout
SUGGESTED EXERCISES FROM LIVESTRONG.COM
 

Opinion: I'm a Pilates fan. It's a LEO cat thing, we MUST S-T-R-E-T-C-H! or we'll end up losing our agilty skills needed to pounce on little pesky mice. But I digress... Let me start with the bands quality/material aspect which is a lightweight, durable plastic. The bands are built to last under your most rigorous workout and are comfortable to grip in the hands as well as allowing your feet to stay firmly in place -- just make certain to wear appropriate workout shoes. I love that this travel friendly piece of equipment helps me to tighten my abs, sculpt arms and back, build core muscles but more important enhance strength and flexibility. I read somewhere that fitness experts feel stretching exercises are more important to the body than other physical activities because we need to keep our muscles limber on the daily in order to stay fit well into the later years. And seriously, they are super easy to use and you don't need to bother signing up for a gym membership  -- save your money! Use TKO 4 Way Bands at home, the office, in your hotel on business trips, the beach, the park or anywhere you go, fitness can now go with you. I have to mention that you might need to adjust them according to your height -- which is really easy  -- other than that you won't have any hassles. I love mine and highly recommend it!

YVES SAINT LAURENT TOUCHE ECLAT NEUTRALIZER SHADE: APRICOT

 *product was sent to me for my consideration, my review is genuine and my own opinion*

Happy Friday gorgeous readers! Today's review is for the new YSL Touche Eclat Neutralizer Color Corrector in the shade Apricot. Side note: Sephora has this shade listed as Bisque and there are three other shades available, in green and violet. Look over the color chart below -- taken from the Sephora website -- to find you which color will work best for your skin tone and issue. Stay Beautiful! XOXO

 A highlighter that targets and neutralizes color imperfections. Discover the award-winning complexion highlighter, now in a must-have, color correcting highlighter. It instantly cancels and neutralizes color imperfections for flawless skintone, and the easy-to-use, one-click brush allows you to perfectly target the problem zone. The lightweight formula allows for customizable and seamless correction—plus, you can wear it under or over foundation.

Formula: Let me start off by talking about the rose gold metallic pen. It has soft bristles and a push pen mechanism that pumps out the product. You might have to be careful when pressing the button down because it takes a few pushes to get the product to flow out and once it does come out it may flow heavy. The formula is lightweight and it's non-sticky which makes it easy to blend into the skin. The pen bristles were okay but I preferred patting the creme with my fingertips on my sensitive eye area. Apricot/bisque is perfect for concealing dark blue under eye circles, although I have to add the barest amount because my skin-tone is very fair. The violet or green would have been better suited for my skin-tone but it does conceal nicely and has amazing wear time without flaking off. The pen is streamlined enough to carry around in a small clutch for touch-ups or for travel. My only issue is that the price point is slightly pricey for an item that will empty out really quickly  -- since the product comes out too fast. Maybe an applicator wand would have been a better choice as a dispensing option. Overall, the formula is really good and it does hides imperfections.
