Here are three lisptick colors that will help show off your radient smile. It’s a sponsored post written by me on behalf of ARM & HAMMER™
Have any of you experienced that moment after having children where you just thought you weren’t cute anymore? For me it was eight years after giving birth to my fourth child. I was often irritable, suffered from headaches, was always tired and didn’t like the changes my body had gone through as a result of child birth. One day my husband asked me to stop putting the children before my own well being. He told me he wanted me to start exercising again and taking time to pamper myself each week.
That was a life changing moment. It was the beginning of getting my radiance back. One change I made was to my beauty routine. By the time my husband encouraged me I had no beauty routine except for when we were going to church. Every other day I got up and focused on taking care of the kids and the house.

Nowadays my routine starts with flossing, brushing and rinsing with mouthwash. Right now I’m using the new ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Rejuvenating Toothpaste, ARM & HAMMER™ Spinbrush™ Truly Radiant™ Manual Toothbrush and ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Rinse.
I use them twice a day, after breakfast and before bed. When choosing toothpaste I look for brands that whiten, strengthen enamel and helps stop stains before they start. I’m getting older which means so are my teeth and I want to keep them healthy for as long as I can.

My smile is very important to me at this stage of life. When I was putting the needs of everyone before my own, I had stopped smiling as much. I was often overwhelmed and felt unappreciated. When my husband encouraged me to let the kids help more and with him pitching in more, I began to smile more again. I was happier.

Another reason why I’m using the ARM & HAMMER™ oral care line is because of their commitment to inspire women. They have partnered with City of Hope Cancer Treatment Center and will be donating $1 every time someone shares their #TrulyRadiantFinish story using the hashtag.

It doesn’t cost anything to get involved, but a few minutes of time. Most  of us are on social media everyday anyway so this is a great way to show our support for Cancer survivors through our radiant moments across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. 

So many things in life can steal our joy, but one thing that brought it back into my life was taking time for personal care. After oral care, I apply my lipstick. Here are three shades I’m loving right now.

Smolder is a soft almost flesh tone matte lipstick. I doesn’t take away from my smile, simply compliments it.
In this picture I’m wearing a color called Breeze and that’s exactly what it reminds me of. It’s really light and translucent. I have to had several coats for it to even show up as the glimmery pink color you see in the lipstick sample shots above.
My final lippie, Sugar Plum Fairy, has a color that mimics exactly what it’s named after. This rich matte lipstick is one of my favorites. Darker richer colors on my lips make my teeth appear whiter and brighter which I love.

Great lipstick paired with products that promote whiter brighter teeth have given me so many more reasons to smile and I love it.

Which lip color do you like best?

  1. It is great that you were able to get your radiance back. As mothers it is important for us to remember we are women and deserving of things that help us be and feel beautiful.

  2. Your Husband is wonderful to suggest exercise and pampering yourself. I'd say a little bit of Make up can brighten the mood. I liked all your Lipsticks

  3. I just read about this line of toothcare and how good it is! So awesome.
    The lipstick colors are fabulous. I definitely had a long not feeling cute time after my second baby was born.

Okay love...let me know what you think!
