Maybelline Baby Lips and Great Lash Lots of Lashes BzzCampaign Review

As some of you may know, I am a member of BzzAgent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, through Word of Mouth and also through Facebook, Twitter and Blogger.

This BzzReview today is about Maybelline Baby Lips and Great Lash Lots of Lashes.

Baby Lips Products


It's Great Because It:
  • Moisturizes and leaves lips feeling soft and super comfortable.
  • Restores damaged cells with the vitamin complex that it contains.
  • Contains Centella, a herbaceous plant that helps replenish elasticity and helps re-hydrate and plump the lips.
  • Protects against UVA/UVB rays with the SPF 20 that it contains.
  • Comes in 6 varieties: Cherry Me, Peach Kiss, Quenched, Peppermint, Pink Punch and Grape Vine.
  • Combines 8-hr hydration with optional tint to lips.
How to Apply:
   Apply your lipcolor by starting in the center of you upper lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of you mouth. Then glide along the entire bottom lip.


                           BEFORE                                             AFTER
I opened and used Maybelline Baby Lips product in Cherry Me.


Great Lash Lots of Lashes


It's Great Because It:
  • Easily reaches the inner and outer corners of the eyes.
  • Builds up your lashes without clumps.
  • Comes in 3 washable shades.
  • Does not require a lot of work to achieve the best lash look.







How to Apply:

  Sweep brush from root to tip of lashes. Continue building volume by repeating until a desired lash look is achieved.

                           BEFORE                                             AFTER
 I opened and used one Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes product.

My Maybelline Thoughts:
   I was excited when the mail woman brought my BzzKit to my door. I opened up the box and immediately took out the Great Lash Mascara and Cherry Me Baby Lips Balm to try out.
   I love the design of the Great Lash applicator. The large bulb at the base of the brush makes for easy application of the longer lashes on the outer corner and the pointed tip of the brush grabs the tiniest of lashes in the inner corner, the place where most mascara's can miss. The application was easy and I was able to seperate my lashes, which means NO CLUMPS! I didn't find a problem with this Mascara not being waterproof. At the end of the day there was no flakes and no smudging. This is overall a great mascara, in my opinion.
   For the Baby Lips product, I chose Cherry Me. It is a red tinted moisturizing lip balm. I love the smell of the balm before applying it to my lips, but after applying it, sunscreen is all I smell of this product; which I do not like at all. 
   Just a couple of days ago, I opened and tried the Baby Lips in Peppermint. Peppermint is one of the clear balm options that I was given. This balm does not exactly smell like peppermint and still has that strong sunscreen scent, but it is wonderful to have a balm that is not tinted. I will continue to use both Baby Lips balms.


My Friend's Thoughts:
   My friend Dana contacted me when I posted on Facebook about having items to share with friends. We met up and I mentioned receiving the BzzKit from BzzAgent, which she is already a member of. Since she did not receive an invite for Maybelline Baby Lips and Great Lash Lots of Lashes, I went ahead and shared a Great Lash product and I let her choose from the different Baby Lips choices that I had. She chose Peach Kiss. I had also mentioned what I liked and did not like about the products. She was willing to try them and give me her feedback.
   After about a week of her trying out the products, she contacted me with her thoughts about them.
   Dana raved about her Baby Lips balm, telling me that the tint, the smell and the moisturizing feature of the product was great. She did not have a problem with the sunscreen smell like I did. She will continue to use the product.
   Dana was not a big fan of the Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara. She did not like the tiny length of the wand and she also said that the bristles of the brush did not grab her lashes like she had hoped it would. I am sure, despite how she feels about the mascara, that she will continue to use it because she was telling me that she had let her normal mascara dry up and she was unable to keep using it.

BzzCampaign for Trend Micro™ Titanium™ Maximum Security


   As some of you may already know, I am a member of BzzAgent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, by Word of Mouth and also through sites like FacebookTwitter and Blogger.

   This BzzReview is about Trend Micro™ Titanium™ Maximum Security. Titanium™ Maximum Security will protect your PC, Mac and even your smartphone. This Maximum Security scans for viruses, malware, spyware and spam, keeping you safe from those who can steal your most valuable information. Trend Micro Vault, Secure Erase file shredder and SafeSync secure online storage keeps all of your data safe, if ever your computer may crash. Titanium™ Maximum Security keeps you safe on your favorite social networking site, by scanning and letting you know what links are safe or malicious. With customizable tools, you will keep you and your family as safe as can be.


   Before I could install Trend Micro™ Titanium™ Maximum Security, I had to uninstall my previous virus scanner, which was AVG Free Virus Scanner. I knew my computer was safe from viruses because my previous scanner had just done a scan before I uninstalled. After installing Titanium™ Maximum Security, I immediately started a scan on my whole computer, just to be sure my computer was still just as safe as before. My computer was fine. No viruses, malware or spyware!


   I activated my SafeSync and it started doing its job effectively. I thought that it would be a great idea to save all of my files with SafeSync, but had heard that if ever you delete SafeSync, then you lose all of your files. I am not sure yet how to delete SafeSync, but when I figure it out, I will try not to lose all of my files. My problem with SafeSync has to do with the file saving itself. My computer runs off of wifi speed from my modem with broadband internet and when SafeSync is saving files, it takes all of the energy from the wifi and makes the all computers and game consoles, running off the the network, very slow! So, while on my computer, I pause the SafeSync so that it doesn't interrupt my internet connection. 


   When I first saw that Titanium™ Maximum Security helped scan out malicious links on social networking sites, I was excited! After installing to my computer, I opened up my web browser and tested it out.
   It wasn't working for me and didn't know what do, I went into settings to try to figure it out and found nothing. I went onto BzzAgent's Facebook wall and asked around and also went to the Trend Micro™ website and realized that Mozilla Firefox was not supported for Trend Micro™ Titanium™ Maximum Security social networking scan. I never use Internet Explorer, but saw that Google Chrome was supported by Trend Micro™. I had been meaning to download Chrome and this was the greatest reason to do so. 
   When on the social network of my choice, like Facebook, links that are okay to view from friends and pages, will be highlighted in green. Malicious sites will turn Red. I have encountered links highlighted gray with a question mark, which means that Trend Micro™ is not sure about that site. It is nice to have and doesn't cause a problem at all for me.

    
   I love that I can bring internet security to my smartphone as well. I downloaded the Mobile Security Personal Edition App for my Android phone. The app allows you to scan phone apps, gives surf, call and text security and will also let you configure lost device protection to your phone. 
   The app is pretty basic, but allows you to set parental controls if needed and also will allow you to block calls and text from annoying unknown callers. I have my Safe Surfing protection level set to normal. This provides balanced protection without blocking minor risks. Safe Surfing also to add allowed sites and will also allow you to add sites that you would like to block.
   Like any other app, this app does run in the background on the phone. My phone battery runs out of juice at the end of the day, so I find myself 'Force Closing' this Mobile Security application to be sure that I have the battery power that I may need. It does a full scan at midnight of each and everyday and also does a scan of new apps that I have just downloaded, so I am not worried about security after I have closed the app. This app is available for Android and for iphone, ipad and ipod touch.


   One fun thing you can do with your Titanium™ console is customize it. I customized my console with a picture of my youngest son. It is great to be able to customize a virus scanner to fit my wants and needs. And, I can change it whenever I want!


Trend Micro™ Titanium™ Maximum Security Scanner

  • Pros: Easy to use, fast scan, pretty easy to activate, customizable to fit individual needs.
  • Cons: No complaints at all.
SafeSync

  • Pros: Saves files in a secure online vault.
  • Cons: May potentially delete your files, slows down internet speed.
Social Networking Security

  • Pros: Highlights in red when malicious site is found, highlights in green when site is okay to view.
  • Cons: Does show grey highlighted sites when the site security is unknown.
Mobile Security App for Android

  • Pros: Scans other apps, keeps calls, internet and texts safe, has lost device protection, parental controls can be set.
  • Cons: Runs down battery of smartphone.


Thank you for taking the time to read my BzzReview for Trend Micro™ Titanium™ Maximum Security. All in All, I believe this virus scanner is a wonderful product, has many useful features and works very well to scan for potentially harmful viruses!

Madden NFL 12: Daily Bzz for Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2011! A LOOK BACK.... IN TIME

As some of you may already know, I am a member of BzzAgent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, by Word of Mouth and also through sites like FacebookTwitter and Blogger.




Today's Daily Bzz Campaign is Madden NFL 12!


But Here is A Look Back at Older Madden Games.....


Remember this game??


This is a screenshot of Madden 93(1992) for Super Nintendo. A Reviewer of this game has said, "Madden 93 represents a major step forward for the series."
Just look at those graphics! Do you remember playing this game? Man, wasn't it one of the best Football games for the classic consoles?


What About Madden 64?


This is the screenshot for Madden Football 64(1997) on, what else, the Nintendo 64. A reviewer of this game calls it, "Intense football action!" And rates the graphics 7.5 on a scale of 1-10. Boy, do those graphics look AWESOME!


This is Madden 12....

Now this is what I call, INTENSE FOOTBALL ACTION! You can actually see the sweat dripping down the players face. Now, tell me, does this game look fantastic or what?

In 19 years, these graphics have really changed.... For the better!!!

Back in the day, people were more concerned about the game play than the graphics. Now, the main focus is to push a new game out, making it appealing to younger crowds that are hungry for special effects and better graphic rather than different and better game play.

In just a couple of years, the difference in graphics and game play with make us take a look back and say, "How did we ever do without this!"

I would love to review this game for BzzAgent on either the PS3 or XBOX consoles! I haven't played any of the Madden NFL games since the Nintendo 64 Console came out! It would be a great opportunity to actually see how much these football games have changed. I could never get the hang of the player movements or controls on the 64 game, but believe that with better graphics, the controls would be better and I would be able to maneuver the player well.

Also, you can LIKE Madden 12 on Facebook.

Dreamlights: Daily Bzz for Wednesday

As some of you may already know, I am a member of BzzAgent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, by Word of Mouth and also through sites like Facebook, Twitter and Blogger.


 For Wednesday, September 14th 2011, the Daily bzz Campaign is Dreamlights: Fireflies in a Jar.

    This glass lantern full of flickering LEDfireflies” draws its power from a tiny Solar Panel embedded in its lid. Just leave the Dreamlights Jar sitting out in the sun; by the time night falls, it will be ready to flicker, glowing on your patio or garden. 
Your child can even take it inside and use it as a nightlight.

                         
                             Here is a poem by Robert Frost called Fireflies in the Garden:
                                             Here come real stars to fill the upper skies,
                                               And here on earth come emulating flies,
                                             That though they never equal stars in size,
                                             (And they were never really stars at Heart)
                                                 Achieve at times a very star-like start.
                                             Only, of course, they can't sustain the part. 



DID YOU KNOW: There is also a movie called Fireflies in the Garden(2008)? 

This movie is a semi-autobiographical story that centers on the complexities of love and commitment in a family torn apart when faced by an unexpected tragedy. 

It stars Ryan Reynolds, Willem Dafoe, Emily Watson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hayden Panettiere, Ioan Gruffudd and Julia Roberts. 

A movie with Ryan Reynolds, Julia Roberts and has fireflies in the name; sounds great to me!

I am interested in trying out and reviewing Dreamlights. Not just for me, but for my son as well. We have not caught fireflies in a jar yet, but this will give him the idea to explore the world that is outside and look at all the different creatures that fly or walk around in the air and on the ground. And here is a plus, we can even bring it inside and use it as a nightlight for our son! How wonderful is that? Pretty darn wonderful to me!

If you haven't already, Become a BzzAgent! If you do, you may be given the chance to try out this product and give your honest opinion about it! 

Thank you for viewing this post about today's Daily Bzz!

Bodum Pavina Glassware: The Daily Bzz for Monday


As some of you may already know, I am a member of Bzzagent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, by Word of Mouth and also through sites like Facebook, Twitter and Blogger.

This Blog is for an entry into the New Daily Bzz Program for Monday, September 12, 2011, Bodum Pavina Glassware.


This Bodum Pavina Glass is an 8.5 oz insulated, doubled walled glass, which is mouth-blown. Since these glasses are handmade by experts, the glasses may be slightly different from others like it. They can be used for cold or warm drinks and is microwave and dishwasher safe.


The Bodum Pavina glass comes with special instructions for the care of the glass while in use.
   To prevent fractures in the inner layer, it is recommended to pour the liquid into the glass before placing ice inside.
   Also, Avoid using metal spoons with the glass and avoid placing in a crowded dishwasher.
   For best results with staying heated, pre-heat this glass before use.


Bodum specializes in many other products besides the glassware. Coffee & Tea, Kitchen & Storage, Tabletop & Living and BBQ products are some of the categories from the website.


Bodum cares about about being "green" and also care about animal rights.


Their commercials are cute and feature an animated Chimp, who uses the products. Cute commercials!


LIKE Bodum on Facebook!

I think that I would benefit from these glasses because my family and I are always making hot and cold beverages and with plastic cups, we are never quite sure if it is really safe for the microwave! I would like to try out these glasses and review them for my friends and the rest of the world!
Thank you BzzAgent for this opportunity.

Bzzagent,

About.Me BzzReview


As some of you may already know, I am a member of Bzzagent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, by Word of Mouth and also through sites like Facebook, Twitter and Blogger.

I did not receive any free products when I sign up for the About.Me BzzCampaign. Instead, when I joined About.Me I did pay only $5.50 for some really awesome business cards where I have joined all of my social networking sites together! I have received these cards from Moo through About.Me.

When you join About.Me, you can create a Splash page that combines Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Flickr to build a single online identity. You can use your own About.Me profile for personal use or for professional use!

After building your Splash page, the dashboard will give you an idea of how many people view or profile.

This site it easy to use easy to navigate around. I have found, that because I have not distributed my online business card around, that not a lot of people have viewed my page! But sending people to just this site, will allow people to view everything that you have linked to your Splash page!

I love the Moo Business Cards. I have combined all of my social sites along with my email address. This card even has a QR code that takes you straight to my About.Me page! I have decorated the front of my business cards with my About.Me background photo and my own pictures.

About. Me: 4 star Rating!

Moo Business Cards: 5 star Rating!
