Beauty Rush Glossy Shinestick

Ohhhhh Victoria’s Secret how you did me wrong!!!! You suckered me in with your yummy  smells and frilly undies and blinded me into buying a lip thingy I didn’t even waaaaaannnt.

Alright I’m a typical chick. I like all sorts of pretty frilly things and when I saw these colorful glossy lip shine thingy’s I was all over them. Not only did they come in an assortment of colors but FLAVORS as well. Pina colada, cherry, berry, strawberry, yum yum yum!

But that’s where the fun stops (READ IN EPIC DOOM VOICE)

Packaging: Typical lipstick style wind up design with clear cap. Very slim and compact making them easy to travel with.

Product: The texture is almost that of a thin lip balm. It slides on fairly easily,  but some of the shinesticks have glitter which makes the texture a little rough when applying. 

Payoff: The colors are fairly pigmented. They give a tinted balm affect which is really nice because it looks very  natural.

Overall: Don’t do it ladies, don’t get suckered in by the heavenly feminine store. This product SUCKS! For the first few days I fooled myself into thinking that these shinesticks were awesome and that I looked like Miranda Kerr in the ads. Yeah, FAIL! The product exaggerated the lines and cracks in my lips and after a period of time they dried up my once hydrated lips. They had weak lasting power and overall were just blah. However, I still love the smells and they don’t taste half bad.

If you own these and have found a way to make them work for you, please share! I’d hate to waste the four that I bought.

An oldie, but a goodie : Tresseme Heat Tamer

So, today I woke up and decided I wanted to look “fancy” (say it in a snobby French accent). So off I went on a mission to straighten my hair. Having avoided my straighter for the past two months, it wasn’t a total surprise that I burnt my arm, scalded my ear and almost fried my eyelashes….Yup.

Half way through my mission, I smelled burning hair and I thought “Damn! I  forget the heat protector thingy!” Hence my reason for writing this blog today.

For those of that don’t already know, some sort of heat protection is essential when working with hot  tools on the hair. Not only does it help your hair from totally frying and becoming a burnt mess, but it also makes the tool work more effectively because the tool can glide more smoothly.

The product I choose to use is the Tresseme heat Tamer Protective Spray.

Packaging: The product comes in a spray bottle form. This not only makes it easier to use but also more efficient  since the nozzle allows for a huge burst of spray that covers a greater  area. As a bonus there is small latch that you can push which prevents the spray bottle from spraying itself (excellent for when traveling)

Product: Typical heat tamer spray, but it smells awesome! Comparing it to other heat protectant sprays the reason I love this one is because it doesn’t leave residue or heavy feeling. All I do is section my hair into four parts, spray once on each section and comb through  to distribute the product. Not only does it leave my hair feeling soft, but I’ve noticed less split ends when I continuously use heat on my hair over long periods of time.

Pricing: Usually around $5 USD

Overall: By now, most people either have this product or at least heard of it, hence my title. It’s simple, easy, and gets the job done. The only complaint I have ever heard is that it leaves the hair feeling greasy, but that’s only when too much product is used. Therefore ladies, don’t get over zealous with the pretty smell, spray spray, done!
