faceless fashionista representing the everyday girl

Sigh…here we go again. Officially on the hunt for yet another brush. Why? You may ask. Well this smart one broke it. No, no my brush wasn’t involved in some catastrophic apocalyptic war that caused it to split in half, it was my hair. Yes ladies, my flippin hair broke my brush!

After years of damaging my hair with color treatments, heating tools and overall abuse, after each shower it becomes a hot mess of tangled tresses that are…well…capable of snapping a brush. Ever so frustrated and annoyed I called up my BFF aka my sister, to spill my heart and shared my woes, when she introduced me to probably the most genius product of all time….Suave Detangler…FOR KIDS!!

Yup, I just admitted it, I now shop in the kids aisle! But what am I supposed to do, this stuff is AWESOME! One quick spritz and poof! My hair is instantly transformed and can run a comb through it without a single snag!

Now before you dismiss me as a total weirdo, check out the pros and cons

PRO:

1. Two quick pumps is all it takes

2. Smells AMAZING (green apples is my fav)

3. Doesn’t sting your eyes, yes I speak from experience (tastes ok too)

4. CHEAP ($3-$5 USD)

5. Light weight formula doesn’t cause build up

6. Obviously child safe

7. Lasts forever! Totally depends on how much and how often you use

8. Adorable packaging

9. Reduces flyaways

CONS:

1. …..cant think of any 🙂

So ladies, if you have a pile of hot mess on your head that you call hair, go give this product a try. I can’t begin to tell you how elated I am not to see a pile of hair on the floor every time I comb my tangled hair.

I’m on a makeup high and I am taking you with me. Now I’m a sucker for palettes because my delusional a** thinks I am getting more for my buck, but for this pallette, yup just roll me over and take all my money cause it is AWESOME!

WHAT: LORAC PRO Pallette

swatch2 swatch1

COST: $44 USD (cringe worthy, I know!)

COLOR PAYOFF: Oy where do I even begin? These have to be some of the softest most pigmented colors that I have ever used. The matte shades blend flawlessly and the shimmer/sheen shades are oh so pigmented. Its like butter baby, BUTTA I TELL YA! 

 

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Pros

  • highly pigmented
  • beautiful neutral shades
  • easily bendable
  • convenient

Cons

  • Fallout, ugly ugly fallout
  • some colors easily dupeable by cheaper brands

 

You know what ladies we have all heard the hype about this palette and I feel that it is well worth the hype because I’m a lazy little bugger that likes all her products in one place. So while I may totally be in love with this palette at the moment because its all new and pretty, don’t take my word for it. Go out try  it for yourself and leave me a comment sharing how you feel. Anywhozzles, love you all, till next time, adios my peps 🙂

 

 

Hola my peeps 🙂 So after my 6 month long hiatus from buying makeup I may have gone a bit overboard but that’s cool, more stuff for me share with you guys….right (insert audio of you all patting my back while telling me its okay). Anyways, I love lip products, so lets get right into it.

Because I am a lip product junkie, I love bundle items like this that let me sample multiple  items/brands at once. Not only can I sample brands that I may have avoided thus far, but I can really get a feel for the product before throwing down an exorbitant amount of cash for a silly lip product

(Swatches in same order as listed above)

 

Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment ($22.50) –Very nice “high end” lip balm. It gives you the perfect sheer, supple, red tint to your lips without going overboard. The consistency is slightly waxy/buttery and the product has a very pleasant “clean/lemon” smell. However, BEWARE, due to the chemical makeup of the product (or lack of chemicals) this product melts ridiculously fast, don’t leave it in the sun or your pocket for that matter. If I was looking for a fancy “chapstick” I would definitely buy this.

Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Bare Pink ($24)– This is a very sheer gloss that left me with a SLIGHT milky/peachy sheen on my lips. I did not find it to be sticky, tacky or slimy at all. I has a slight sweet (vanilla?) scent to it so keep that in mind when testing this product. Overall I really like this product however for the price and the lack of color, I will not be running to the store to buy the full size tube anytime soon.

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly ($22.50)- A very nice mauve color with a slight hint of shimmer. The consistency is on the thicker end and it is tacky. Buxom products usually promise to be long-lasting so the tackiness definitely helps with this. There is a minty smell and feel to the product which helps with the illusion of fuller and poutier lips, but don’t worry, the tingly feeling is short lived and not irritating. I have multiple Buxom lipgloss’ and I adore all of them.

NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight ($24)– Synonymous with Kim Kardashian, this product is exactly what I thought it would be: sheer and milky. Like the Laura Mercier gloss, there wasn’t much color pay off but I did like the smooth texture of the gloss. However unlike the Laura Mercier this gloss did have a slight chemical based smell, which I mean is manageable but still prevalent. Overall, I think this would be a great gloss to put over a nude lip color, but I don’t see myself running to buy this color.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Rhubarb ($24)- I have never tried any Bite Beauty products so this one really caught me off guard. What a wonderful lip product! Following the trend of twist up jumbo pencil lip products this is a twist up matte lip stick that feels very comfortable on the lips and lasts a decent amount of time. The color is beautiful deep rose/red shade which I found made me look more tanner then I really was but on my sister (who is much lighter then I) it really accented her porcelain skin. Great product, definitely would buy!

 Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster in Glitzy ($24)– I am a huge fan of the entire TARTE Insurgence line and this product is just another in a line of great products. With its signature minty taste and smell, this product glides on smoothly and the color is very similar to the Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Balm, but with a slight sheen/shimmer kick. Just a great everyday lip color to throw on while running out the door.

Overall: Well worth the $25 USD. Yes there were some definite hits and misses but then again that was due to my own personal preference. So if you have not already bought/tried this product…go on….go and get you some lip by Sephora 🙂

I know I am waaaaaaaaay late in jumping in on this bandwagon, but a month back I finally did, am boy am I glad I did! 

Product: Revlon Just Bitten Kissables (lip balm/stain)

Packaging: On trend with all the other chubby pencil designs, the balms look like a giant crayon that you wind up from the bottom for  more product.

Pricing: Anywhere from $5-12 USD depending on location and availability

Colors: Colors range all the way from a soft nude to a deep red. I bought three: (top to bottom, left to right) Darling, Cherish and Honey

Finish/Texture: Go on like a balm, very moisturizing, with a slight frost (depends on color) and always glossy finish.

Overall: I love these, and I know I say that about most of the product reviews I post, but seriously my Kissable, especially Honey (on the far right), have become my morning routine staple. They go with everything, no mess, no fuss. DEFINITELY a must re-buy
