MAC Cosmetics vs BH Cosmetics Liquid Foundation Review

So today I decided to try out the BH Cosmetics liquid foundation line against my MAC Studio Fix liquid foundation. The MAC foundation price is $24 and the BH Cosmetics foundation price is $3.98. As you can tell already there is a big difference in price. As everyone should know its never about the price, it's about quality. My foundation color in MAC is NW35 and in BH the Deep Beige. When opening the BH foundation from the packaging I already was in love with the bottle. It came with a pump something the MAC Studio Fix liquid foundation does not have, but the testers in-stores do. So you end up using more than you should or accidently spilling it while in the process of doing your makeup. The difference between the foundations are their consistencies, the MAC is thinner and less oily, and the BH Cosmetics is more thicker and a little oilier.  When applying both foundations on my face I saw that the BH blended well for a less expensive brand. With the MAC I had to apply another layer because it was thinner than the BH brand.

The results came out perfect and I couldn't tell the difference between the two products after application. On the right side is MAC and the left side is BH Cosmetics. I finished the application with a thin layer of loose powder to set the foundations. Then continued with my blush and bronzer. 
The eyeshadow is from the BH Cosmetics 120Palette  4th Edition and the Smokey Eyes Palette. 

Weight Loss Update...

Ok guys I coming to you with a quick update in the progress of my weight loss. Right now I'm 25 lbs down from my original weigh in from February. I'm currently not using any Herbalife products but I will be soon.

    The diet I'm currently on is more of a soup diet. I eat a lot of fruit such as; Grapefruit, Pineapples, White Grapes, Watermelon, and Oranges. I also eat vegatables but not like I should. I still eat my Greek yogurt and I added peanuts to my snacks as well. I drink plenty of water each day to help out my metabolism and to provide a balance for body. 
    My workout consist of 4 days a week with 2 hour session in the gym. One day arms, one day gluts, one day legs, and one day core. Sometimes I will add a fifth day in if I can or because I need the extra day because I ate something outside of my current diet and need to burn it off. I do a total of 100 squats per day, 150 crunches, 50 sit-ups, and 30 minutes of yoga each day. I do train with a Gold Gym waist trainer that helps shed water weight around the midsection and also shapes you while working out. I will be ordering a waist crincher soon to help mold and train my waist. I really want to see if I can get back to my old size but with some modifications.

Hairfinity Product update!!

Since my last review in January introducing this product and giving a review as well. I decided it was time for a product update.

    My temples have grown back in since the last update. My hair is longer, stronger, thicker, and most of all more manageable. This product has given my hair more life than I ever expected. My hair has grown a complete 6 inches since my original start date in November. I never had any doubts about this product not working. I normally take this product at night with a full glass of water. *Remember this product still contains Biotin, so it's necessary to drink a full glass of water when taking it. My main concern with this product will be in my growth phase. As I noted in my last blog review about HairFinity, your hair has a life cycle that consists of 3 phases: growing, resting, and shedding. Not only is sulfur a building block for your hair, it also has been shown to lengthen the growing phase of your hair. A longer growing phase (before resting and shedding) means longer hair. 
    This product continues to amaze me each month when I see the results of the product. If you don't believe see for yourself. You can purchase the product at at $24 a bottle. Which is a one month supply and they do come in bundles if you want to purchase the product in bulk. 
    Next update will be pressing my hair so you can see the full results of this product. Right now I am just focusing on the thickness and strength of my hair.
