Products I am currently using

This is Maybelline's volume express for false eyelashes. This mascara comes in 281 very black noir intense. It gives you more invisible lashes and fills in the gaps and gives you instant volume. I do not wear false eyelashes however I still use this mascara. Personally you do not need to wear falsies to use this. This mascara makes my eyelashes longer and I really like it. In my opinion the mascara does not clump my eyelashes.



This is the Baked collection wet/dry eye shadow and I am in love with this. It's a All-in-1: Highlight, Shadow, Liner. The dry gives you a natural look, whereas the wet gives you a dramatic and long-lasting look. You can give yourself a simple smokey look or a dramatic smokey look. For me I am a simple girl, but every now and then going for a dramatic look is cool. This collection is Hypoallergenic, Fragrance Free, Dermatologist approved, Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

The mineral wear correcting concealer works really well. I recommend it to anyone. This includes a 3-in-1 concealer: correct, cover, and highlight. The green color is the first step and it corrects blemishes and other red imperfections. The orange color is the second step and it conceals the imperfections. As for the pink color, it is the final step and it illuminates the browbone and temples.

Pond's luminous clean wet cleansing towelettes are great for wiping off makeup and just cleansing your face in general. If I am wearing makeup I will use this and my Neutrogena eye makeup remover. It is nice and soft and very moisturizing.  
The eos lip balm summer fruit is my favorite lip balm ever. I have not ever really used a lip balm as much as this one. It keeps your lips moisturized. It is made with shea butter and jojoba oil. This lip balm is also petrolatum free.

This is Revlon's just bitten kissable balm stain. The color is called Cherish/ Devotion. It is a pretty pink color and it smells really good.

This pH powered lip gloss comes in light pink 7598. This is the first ever lip gloss with pH power complex transforms into your perfectly personalized hue. The fluorescein based dye senses the pH level of your skin and adjusts within 60 seconds to create the perfect lip color. This lip gloss applicator lights up  and features a full- size mirror.

Mayonnaise is good for your hair?

Saturday, February 16, 2013
 



Have you ever heard anyone saying mayonnaise is good for your hair? For the past couple of years that is all I have heard. So I did some research for myself and was surprised to see all of the articles on mayonnaise as a hair treatment. These articles say that mayonnaise leaves your hair shinny and soft. Mayonnaise is often treated as a conditioner. Mayonnaise can also be a moisturizer for dry hair and because of the protein and fat in the mayonnaise, it keeps your hair: healthy, shiny, hydrated, and improves the texture to. I have not had the chance to try this and I do not think I will. The main reason is because of the smell, we all know how mayonnaise smell(not that great). Did anyone else try this?

 




Are there any other  interesting hair trends or treatments out there?


These are the links of the articles I have found about mayonnaise:

Happy Valentine's Day ♥

                                     Happy Valentine's Day


Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you all are enjoying! For the past few years, I always thought you needed a significant other for Valentine's... I know now that this isn't true. You do not need a significant other to feel loved or to be loved. There are many people that love you (parents, siblings, and friends). To those of you who have significant others, I hope to find love like you all. But for now my family is my Valentine's this year! There are many things you can do for this special occasion if you do not have a Valentine. Here's a few things...

1. Spend time with your family, their the ones who love you the most right?!
2. Hang out with your friends and party!
3. Bake some Valentine treats!
4. Spend time by yourself. Get dressed up for yourself or wear Valentine     pajamas and make yourself some dinner or have some takeout.


Here's a list of things I love
 1. My family
 2. My friends
 3. Myself
 4. Sports (basketball)
 5. Fashion and everything beauty
 6. Music

                         What did you do for Valentine's Day?


Grammy Awards 2013: My favorite outfits

Monday, February 11, 2013
My mini fashion post!




Katy Perry wore a green tight fitting gown by Gucci. Usually Katy does not wear these kinds of dresses, she wears creative extravagant clothing. So it was nice to see her in this dress, she looked really pretty. I liked how her dress wasn't to much and that she had a little design around her neck and the top of the dress.

                                       

  Taylor Swift wore designer Grecian J. Mendel's gown. This dress is a white gown, with silver straps and chiffon drapes. I usually do not like her outfits, but this dress was gorgeous. I love chiffon dresses, so I liked how she had the drapes made of chiffon.
 
 
 

  
I posted this picture just because Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are my favorite country music couple. But I'll talk about her outfit anyway. She wore a black J. Mendel dress. Accessorizing her dress, she added  Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and she wore shoes by Tom Ford, and carried a Bottega Veneta clutch.





 I am not a fan of cut-out dresses, but I thought Kelly Osbourne and Karlie Koss looked gorgeous. Kelly on the left side wore a cut-out black gown by Paule Ka. On the top right side Karlie Koss wore a sky blue frock by Michael Kors.

Trying a new Shampoo and Conditioner

Sunday, February 10, 2013
Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner
 
 
Right now I am in the process of growing my hair back out. In my previous blog on my favorite hair products I mentioned "Garnier Fructis Fall Fight" Shampoo and Conditioner. I have found that this helps my hair grow, but I want the length of my hair to grow more. That is when I found this shampoo and conditioner. This is still from the Garnier Fructis brand. Before Garnier Fructis my previous hair products were Tresemme; Tresemme is still great, but I am in love with the Garnier Fructis line of products.

About the product:

Everyone goes through hair changes, well at least I do.  It all started in my sophomore year in high school, but that will be in another blog post. This shampoo and conditioner is for "Fragile, Hard-to-Grow Hair". It also strengthens and grows the length of your hair, it helps defend against breakage, split ends, and dullness. This fortifying formula includes a blend of apple and lemon extract... the shampoo and conditioner smells go good! Also vitamin B3 and B6 are included. This products proves to have hair 5x stronger, helps hair to grow, and leaves it shiny. This is really good. I love and trust Garnier Fructis products and I recommend them to anyone! I will post an update on the progress of my hair.
