Health Finds: SBR Nutrition’s Liquid Supplements

I was recently able to try SBR Nutrition‘s Liquid Supplements.  I had never tried supplements in liquid form before.  I am so used to seeing vitamins being sold in pill and powder form that it almost came as a surprise how well these taste.  When I think of the words supplement and vitamin I instantly think of the weird after taste associated with them.

I was gifted their Vitamin B-12, the Hydration formula and the Biotin liquid supplements.  I was expecting them all to have a strange after taste but SBR found a way to eliminate that.  The Biotin and B-12 supplements have a very light natural vanilla and cherry flavor. I was impressed by that because most flavored supplements usually taste artificially forced.

The main advantage of taking a liquid supplement is that they dissolve into your system faster.  I am pretty familiar with the Biotin and Vitamin B-12 so I decided to focus on SBR Nutrition’s Hydration Formula. Since this is a beauty blog, initially I wanted to talk about Biotin but after researching the ingredients it became apparent that the hydration formula is well worth the conversation.  I found it to be interesting because it isn’t a basic vitamin formula.

The Hydration Formula description:

Ingredients: Shilajit, Lycium Barbarum (Goji Berry) Extract, Organic Aloe Vera (Leaf), Purified Water, Organic Grape Alcohol

SBR Nutrition brings you a premium quality hydration formula with fulvic acid, humic acid, over 74 trace colloidal ionic minerals, electrolytes, amino acids, B vitamins, an array of enzymes and unique polysaccharides.

I found this formula effective. It definitely made me feel good throughout my work day while adding the drops to my water.  Staying hydrated is a very important part of having healthy skin and having a healthy functioning body.  It’s one of those Beauty Tips that I feel gets overlooked but should be talked about more.

Fall Makeup Inspiration

I don’t think I’m the only one that welcomes the Fall season with big open arms.  I love this time of year because of the colors, the fashion, the food and of course the holidays.  I love when makeup artists whip out those beloved warm colors. One of this seasons most Fall-ish makeup releases so far is Morphe’s 35M Boss Mood palette.

Retailing at $24, the 35M gives you 35 blendable shades and plenty of potential. There are sixteen Metallic shades, 18 Matte shades and one single shade that I believe to be a highlight color called Light of the Party.  This one shade is described as a frosted cream shimmer and you can definitely tell the difference between the finishes.  The palette is much prettier in person compared to how it appears on ads.  I was skeptical at first but then I went to Ulta Beauty and saw how pretty it was for myself.

There are greens, deep golds and bronzes, rich berry colors, oranges and dark plums.  Of course this palette wouldn’t be complete without a matte black.  Originally,  I thought the metallic shades were high shimmer shades but they’re not.  They seem to have a foil like finish. All of the metallic’s have a sprinkle of micro fine glitter and some have glitter in a few colors.

I have quite a few Morphe palettes now but I have to say that this one is one of my favorite’s so far.  My concern at first glance was how I was going to make these particular colors mesh without the look becoming a mess. I had to swatch color combo’s on my arm to make it make more sense.  Looking at the palette, I saw endless possibilities with using other palettes along with the 35M.  I just had to figure out my rhythm if I was going to use this palette only.

During this season, I draw inspiration from nature and the fashion industry.  The pictures above are examples of what I see for Fall color combinations.  I have created a few looks so far using the Boss Mood palette.  Take a peek at them below and stay tuned for my upcoming FALL GIVEAWAY which will include this Morphe 35M palette.
