It’s fun to experiment with new beauty products. Heck, that’s why I started beauty blogging – to try all kinds of products and share my opinions of them! Lately, I’ve been using 7 new products in my beauty routine. Some are makeup items, and a few are skin care items. Keep reading to learn about the products.
Every now and then I have to go through my beauty products and just purge. Instead of impulsively throwing everything away though, I look at what I have and determine what I can do with it. Keep reading to find out what I do with my extra beauty products.
My hair care routine has been needing a change. I have dry, naturally wavy hair that I usually straighten on a daily basis. After my regular routine of shampoo-conditioner-blow dry-straighten, my hair ends up flat and weighed down most of the time. My “good hair days” aren’t that great because I’m not achieving my ideal hair goals of full, bouncy, volumized locks. As a girl who’s always keeping up with the latest beauty trends online, I came across the reverse washing concept and discovered the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Collection along with it. Thanks to TRESemmé, I was able to try these products for myself!
IT Cosmetics is on QVC today with the It’s Your Bye Bye Collection, featuring five products, including skin care, makeup, and a beauty tool! Four of the products are new!! I’ve been using the set myself, so keep reading to learn about the products and my thoughts on them.
With makeup comes a lot of product names and colors to remember. If you try many different products and brands like me, then you have a bunch of shade names to remember. In MAC foundation I’m NC25 but in NARS I’m Ceylan and Make Up For Ever I’m 120=Y245 (what the heck?!). As the list grows, so does my headache from trying to recall what shades I am and to which brand they belong.
I’ve been on a hunt for the perfect foundation for a long time. I was pretty certain I found a great one when I started using Make Up For Ever’s Ultra HD foundation (review of that one here). As great as it was, I’ve found one that’s even better! Can you guess the best foundation I’ve ever used?
Sally Beauty challenged me to take the (hair) dare to get my best color ever, so I did a little research and discovered an awesome product to add temporary metallic color to your hair. It’s a product found at Sally’s, called Ion® Color Brilliance® Brights Metallics Temporary Hair Color. I decided to give myself rose gold hair and not only was it easy, but there was very little mess involved and it turned out beautifully. Keep reading to discover what shades are available, how to use the product, and the before and after pics! Check out the #SallyHairDare hashtag on social sites to get more ideas on cool hair looks!
Many of Benefit’s products are adored by makeup lovers. I see them mentioned all over in YouTube videos and on blogs quite frequently. Benefit’s mascaras are among some of those popular products from the brand. I’ve been using two of them, Roller Lash and They’re Real, so I can compare them for you. Keep reading to find out what makes them different and which one I like better!
