BE A KIT NAPPER!! OR GET SOME KUDOS!!! ANJIE IS YOU-NIQUE MAKE UP SERIES #1

My daughter who has provided me with hours and hours of make up advice and products has found a new job.  She will no longer be in the "make up" business and I don't wear really much at all or do much face care to her shagrin....with that being said.... I have a lot to learn.  So this is a multipart series that the frugal freelancer will be learning right along with others in the same boat.  

YOUNIQUE was #1 to try  ...... with just the right presenter an I think I found her.... GIVE HER A SHOT IF YOU HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT TRYING THIS GREAT PRODUCT YOU HAVE NOTHIG TO LOSE ....its FREE!



THEY SAY A PHOTO IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS so lets start with that and save me some time!  Below is the BEFORE (my regular looking self) and the one under is the AFTER  (my YOUNIQUE self after Courtney played with me for a while)  ... I wish that we had stayed the same difference away from the camera for both but that hindsight you know is 20/20


What I liked:   Courtney is REAL and intuitive....she cares about making you feel good and a lot of fun to hang with.  I can see us working together in the future with beautiful brides  (DO YOU HEAR ME MINDY?)  and other shoots..... the make up FEELS GREAT AND LIGHT on my skin and she was careful to have me all matched up before we even started.    I especially liked a few products , namely the contour .... the primer and the foundation.


WHAT I WOUD DO DIFFERENT:  I would have tried a few more lip stains.   I would have asked to be more dramatic on the eyes and less dramatic on the brows.   I have always been told to play up my cheekbones and eyes but haven't been taught or seen the way I "imagine" it and certainly don't know how to do it myself without looking like a clown.    

NEXT TIME I need to get my girl DEB to take care of my brows first ...too.  

DATE NIGHT WAS GREAT BTW THO!!! 


Beautiful Courtney is passionate about make up and I can't wait to work with her more!!   


BEFORE...... and no that is not my fingers behind her head......



AFTER.......



NOW EVERYONE KNOWS THAT I AM NOT A BIG SPENDER ON EVERYTHING ..... really ANYTHING ....so these make up prices seem unrealistic ... compared to what I can get with coupons and deals ... you know us FRUGAL PEOPLE the question or hypothesis is ... that spending the extra $$$ not only makes you look better but also has ingredients that are GOOD for your skin.

NOTE:   I had no outbreaks from using these products this one day.

I WILL BE Spending $99 plus tax today on the KUDOS GET TO SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESS THAT ALSO SUPPORTS MY OWN ...this "idea" or "concept" is one I highly believe in.... we have to support EACH OTHER ,   Courtney is needing only 8 more sales to earn her FREE DREAM CASE if you are her friend HELP HER OUT ,  GET A KUDOS GET!!! I DID......if you are wanting more products and that fab MASCARA..... then be a kit napper!!!!

read the deals, go see courtney ( in midlothian) and have some FREE fun at the very least....I bet she would love to do a girls make up party,  just a thought?   


HERE ARE THE DEALS.......


KUDOS:


NOWWWWW  this is the DEAL that I am Interested in most because of three reasons,   I NEED some new foundation #1 and I don't use the "cheap stuff" mine is normally $40 but lasts me a very long time!    and I loved how this felt on my face ....and #2  Courtney is trying to sell 10 of the KUDOS to help people save money and earn herself a makup box....  #3  PROCEEDS HELP CHILD ABUSE (specifically sexual , which is one of my CAUSES that support whole HEARTEDLY!)

YES INDEED!

if you are interested.....

Click shop, scroll down to kudos, add to cart- click taffeta for your color in concealer, click taffeta again for your foundation and then you'll see a little box in the right corner of the screen, hit that and proceed to checkout. I just did it and it worked ok.

BUT YOU MAY WANT SOMETHING ELSE like that BAD A$$ mascara and ROSE WATER TONER (smells so good)
if that is the case...this may be the deal for you,  its a START UP KIT BELOW..... that INCLUDES a $15 GC to spend ANYWAY YOU LIKE!!!   

if this is right..... you may be a KITNAPPER!!!!  go grab a kit and nap it and run if you just want a great deal on a lot of product to use and maybe even share....


KITNAPPER:

CASH BACK AND CASH EARNING SITES - UPDATE



I have used search programs to earn points  to cash in for paypal and gift certificates for years.  My friend, Tommi, and I made up a huge spreadsheet and attempted to incorporate an all inclusive page that would help people choose which site with which coupon would work best when shopping on line.  It was a lot of work but Tommi was an "accounting" major so I was sure we could successfully do this.  Well it worked but it morphed so quickly with sites and programs going defunct, buying each other out and just disappearing and codes getting "expired" or "revoked" due to over use that it was impossible to maintain.   

So from time to time I try to update my posts , facebook and here with what I am using at the time and what is working best for me "at the time" with no promises about tomorrow.  That has worked out much better!



I use these sites almost daily to try and get the best deals, $$ back checks which I try to roll over into more deals that equal more free and close to free deals so that I am not only SAVING MONEY but NOT SPENDING money at the same rate of the rest of the world.  

So for instance.... one of my best rebate programs has recently added the convenience of rec'ving Amazon GC in place of the $$ / checks / paypal.  This saves me a bit of $$ as the check and paypal both charge me for receiving money on my "business account."   Using the Amazon GC I purchase my next to nothing deals on the ELITE CLUB.... so instead of "small fees" in essence my shopping becomes FREE and if I go through a rebate site I may even make a few cents on the deal!!   I call this making a "home run" deal.

Today ,  I bought a book and a toy from BN.COM or barnes and noble.   I used this method.  I get FREE BN GC from my BN CREDIT CARD.  I charge some bills to that card and earn.  This year my BN membership was also free because I used my CC "enough" what ever "enough" was.    I don't know the interest rate because I pay this card in full every month.   I got a discount for being a member, I used a coupon I got in the mail for additional savings on one item.  I paid with my gift certificates I earned from my credit card.   I went through a rebate site and will earn back 5% on that total sale.   I will then cash in points from that site to get another GC for Amazon.

Can you see how rolling over these deals work?   Ok if you would like to do the same I am going to list my faves here.... if not just skip the rest of this posting as it will be referral links and direct links to the programs I use.  Feel free to share or bookmark this page for future reference but please remember I am not going to be updating it all of the time and companies can change any time.   

TIP:   I cash out my survey sites and cash back as often as they will let me because I have been "burned" by many programs for not using in time and they go defunct or something else.  Cashing out frequently may not get you as much but its better than nothing which sometimes happens by waiting too long.

SEARCH / CLICK / SURVEYS ETC 
*** these are the ones that I currently use:  they started out much more generous than they are now.  I cash out for Amazon $5 as often as possible.    I made a lot of GC from them in the past, now its "so so" results.
SWAGBUCKS:   GO HERE
IRAZOO:       GO HERE   Start with 500 points with my invite code: 'XPLP95 '    if you have not logged into their NEW system recently ,  like me... you will need to start all over ...if you use the same email you signed up in the past there is a chance that your points and other things will roll over into your new account ... mine DID NOT so I had to send a "help" with fingers crossed...

CASH BACK:
*** sites that refund you $$ for your online purchases.  There are others but these are the ones I am using RIGHT NOW.
Ebates:     ***been around the longest   have cashed out no probs!
Mr. Rebates:    ****my personal FAVE**** many cash outs!!!
