New Blog I've Decided to move to Blogspot because they rock!

So lately I have been thinking I should start a Beauty Blog since I like to try new and exciting Beauty products . My friends always tell me that I am the best source of info on the new and exciting products out there and then if I like what I try some of them go out and purchase and try for themselves.
But before I get into reviewing and yadda yadda I feel like I should give you a bit of background info on myself.
Hi ! My name is Jolene !!!!
I am a huge cosmetics junkie !! I love to try new and exciting things woo woo!! I also work in the Non Profit sector in Vancouver British Columbia I attended Vancouver Film School for Three Months for Makeup Artistry but felt this school was not for me . I also work as an Event Security Guard at our local sports arena so I get to see alot of concerts that roll on through. I'm thinking about going back to school in the fall to get my makeup deploma just for the sake of it and that way I can get awesome discounts. I am also just getting into the world of couponing but not in the scary way of stocking up on 300 boxes of pasta cause thats just scary. But in the way of If I can get what I need for free or cheaper then Hey Great!!!!!!

anyways thanks for reading I will be adding some new and exciting reviews of some products I have just tried and want to share with the rest of you .

Sunless Tanners

So I am going on Vacation in a few weeks to the Dominican Republic Punta Cana for my boyfriends best friends wedding . I have decided that I do not want a sun burn but a nice sun TAN. Last year I went to Mexico and I get really badly burnt halfway through my vacation and it kinda put a damper on my whole trip since I was in so much pain. So this year I am going to be trying out a spray tan as I am not too fond of going into tanning beds as I am too worried about the damage it causes to your skin.I am also going to be trying out a few diff sunless Tanning Products too!!!

One of the sunless tanning products I am going to start off with is
Shiseido Brilliant Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Gel
Retails for about  32.00$ at London Drugs
I am also going to be trying
Lavera Glow & Go Gradual Self Tanning Gel Spray - 200ml
Retails for about 21.99$ at London Drugs

I am hoping that these products will help me acheive the desired look that I am after before my big Vacay but something tell's me I will still end up needing to go with that spray tan before I go.
Over the next few weeks I will try both of these products out and review my findings on what one works best.

*****UPDATE******** I was not able to find the Lavera Glow & Go Gradual Self Tanning Gel Spray  so I replaced it with the Jergans Natural Glow sunless tanner.

I really like the colour of the Shiseido sunless tanner , It looks so very natural while giving you a strong colour. I also found that it didnt have a really horrible over powering sent like most.
The Jergans on the other hand was extreamly smelly, It took a while to get any kind of a colour and it was very streaky.
