Call it love at first sight! A vibrant eyeshadow palette that smells like our delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich, who knew? The Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Eyeshadow Palette performs beyond our expectations, with warm tones that flatter most. Karen’s standout shades are Peanut Butter and Peanut Brittle, while Lauren loves her jelly! The nine gorgeous matte and shimmer shades are all infused with antioxidant rich cocoa powder. These colors are highly pigmented, bendable, and can be used for everyday wear or special occasions. Try going natural by day, then amp up your look at night. We would love it if Too Faced would make PB & J a permanent palette, as it was a superb addition to their Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Collection. Fortunately for us, we were lucky enough to snag this super cute, travel friendly, limited edition palette before it was gone!
From time to time we are asked if we’d like to try & review products. We were so thrilled with this Luxury Skin Care Line we couldn’t wait to share it with you! L’dara Review Video
When it comes to applying mascara, long, thick, luscious lashes are what we aspire to achieve. Hands down, mascara is a must-have beauty essential in both of our makeup bags. Applying mascara opens up our eyes, completes our look and frankly we just feel naked without it. Choosing the best mascara for your lashes may require a little research. The shape of the brush definitely will determine how your lashes will respond. The formula is also important because none of us want to leave the house with raccoon eyes and flaking is an absolute no-no! If you prefer volume, then a fatter wand is needed for delivery. A curved brush is good to lift and curl your lashes. If you’re the quick coat kind of girl, then look for a brush that delivers a lot of product on your lashes. We’ve tested the following, let’s see if they have held up their end of the bargain? Watch our video to find out more!

Who wouldn’t love a deep crust of pizza dough smothered with savory, meaty toppings and melty cheese that tastes outrageous – but without all the outrageous calories? It’s a slice of heaven you’ll have trouble believing didn’t come out of a wood-fired oven in downtown Chicago! Just by tweaking a few ingredients, you can watch your waistline and still enjoy a flavorful, cheesy pizza. So good, it even passes the pizza test with our beloved husbands! Yes you can in a 9 X 13 pan, no kneading required!
Deep Dish Casserole Pizza Recipe:
1 1lb extra lean ground turkey
1 (15 ounce) can diced Italian-style tomatoes
1 (15 ounce) can Pizza Sauce ( we used approx 7 ounces)
1 (13 ounce) can refrigerated pizza dough (Pillsbury Pizza Crust Classic)
6 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Cook meat in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring until it crumbles. Drain, if necessary, and return to skillet. Add tomatoes, and cook until heated through.
While meat cooks, coat a 9 X13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Unroll pizza crust dough, and press into bottom and halfway up sides of the baking dish. Top the pizza crust with pizza sauce (as much or little as you like), then add meat mixture.
Bake, uncovered, at 425 degrees for 12 minutes. Top with cheese, and bake 5 minutes or until crust is browned and cheese melts. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
