20170427_183601 (2)

Ok my fellow beauties I think at this point it’s safe to say I love all of the Urban Decays Vice lipsticks! With that said my next post on these awesome lipsticks will probably be the last. So I will be combining the last of these shades on one post.

Moving on!

I am by far the girl who can pull off this kind of…. Barbie feel? Especially on my lips, idk maybe I feel too old hahaha idk But oh man I was truly wrong & I’m completely ok with it! 😀 If I’m going to wear a pink shade I want it to scream at people! That’s exactly what “Sheer Anarchy” Does!! My lips look full to the T with no help! That’s right only lipstick here.. no liner, nothing! Just full, sexy, kiss me lips!! You can’t go wrong with this shade. Barbie yes.. But she has grown up baby! lol

This “Barbie” lip inspired this chicks darker inner goddess to come out.

20170521_094221

Brushes! What would makeup be without them? Oh right stuck with those horrible eyeshadow applicators!!! (Screaming in horror lol) So when it comes to our makeup brushes its super important to wash & take care of them properly. I’ve had my same set of brushes now for close to 10 years! Coastal Scents 22 brush set & they are still as amazing now as they where the day I bought them!!! So when it comes to their care I only want the best.

Meet Palmat by Practk!!! 20170521_092055.jpgA bit of info Practk was founded by the brilliant minds behind  internationally-loved prestige brand Sigma Beauty, the market leader in patented brush care. Using their industry expertise & scientific background, Sigma founders Simone Xavier & Rene Xavier Filho set out to bring practical beauty solutions to a new market. Practk uses the established revolutionary innovation of Sigma Beauty to create simple tools & solutions that offer exceptional quality & value.

Cleaning your brushes is important not only so they are clean & don’t transfer unwanted colors in other looks, but because your brushes can carry harmful bacterias & you’re rubbing, patting, pressing & blending them all over your face! GROSS!

A bit of info The palmat is a small but powerful tool that quickly & easily removes makeup buildup & harmful bacteria from your makeup brushes.

This little guy is made from durable, high-grade silicone. Soft to the touch this was comfortable on my hand & really made washing my brushes so easy!!! 20170521_092250Adjustable to fit any size hand.20170521_092140

Even if you don’t like wearing it on the back side are 6 suction cups you can stick anywhere. Sink, counter, table, door? haha wherever! 20170521_09211120170521_093536I had recently cleaned my brushes & to see the difference after washing them with the palmat is crazy. I only pulled a couple of brushes out so we could focus in on the quality of the clean.

Brushes before

20170521_09261820170521_092516Let the cleaning BEGIN! I’m using SigMagic Brushampoo20170521_09293920170521_093852 (2)Having different textures my not seem important but how wrong you would be! I found out while cleaning away my smaller brushes did better on this crisscross design & my big Brush did better on the other side.

Here are the end results!!!20170521_09444720170521_094527WOW! I think it’s safe for me to say this is a winner! My brushes are truly clean! They look like they did the day I got them & feel wonderfully soft 🙂

I couldn’t be happier with this tool & here the most amazing part!! It’s not going to break the bank, Because the Palmat retails for 9.95! That’s it!! I mean come on, where can you get quality makeup tools that work amazing for under $10?! I think it’s safe to say I’m sold on the Palmat by Practk!

Hey Honey! Have you heard?!

hey honey logoLet me start off by saying how excited I am about this company & the products they have to offer!  Let’s check them out 😀

Hey Honey has two main ingredients in their products & they are HONEY & PROPOLIS.

HONEY:

Honey is a sweet food substance produced and stored by bees and other insects using nectar from plants. The type of Honey most commonly referred to is honey made by honey bees. This is due to its worldwide production and consumption and it is the product that is used extensively in our Hey Honey Skin Care line.

A bit of beauty history

Cleopatra (c.69 BC – 30 BC) used honey in her daily beauty rituals to keep her skin smooth and firm. She added honey to her milk baths.

  • Poppaea Sabina (30 – 65 AD) Emperor Nero’s second wife, washed her face 7 times a day with a milk and honey lotion.
  • Hippocrates (460 BC) the great Greek scientist used honey for baldness, prevention and treatment of scars
  • Nefertiti (1370 BC), the wife of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten, regularly used honey in her beauty regime. Her name, Nefertiti, was originally pronounced ‘Nafteta’ which means “the beauty has come”.
  • Madame du Barry (1743 – 1793), the last mistress of King Louis XV of France, used honey as a face mask. Part of her beauty ritual was to lie down and rest after applying the mask.
  • Queen Anne (1665 – 1714) was believed to have used a secret honey and oil recipe to keep her hair thick and shiny.
  • Sarah, the Duchess of Marlborough (1660 – 1744), had her own secret recipe for a special honey water that she applied to her hair in order to keep it beautiful.

PROPOLIS:

The word propolis is reputed to have been coined by Aristotle, from the Greek words “pro” (before) and “polis” (city), meaning, “Before The City”, or “Defender Of The City”.

Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees collect from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. In the hive, it is used to both seal and protect the bee larva (baby bee) chambers and as well as function as a natural disinfectant against bacteria. Using propolis in skin care products provides a similar defense for our skin.

A bit more history:
Propolis has been used for medicinal purposes since before 350 BC.
The ancient Greeks used propolis to treat abscesses, Assyrians used it to help heal wounds and tumors, and Ancient Egyptians used propolis for mummification.
Alongside enjoying the great effects of honey & milk baths, the gorgeous Egyptian Pharaoh Cleopatra started using propolis, a mystic, powerful ingredient that was used during the embalming process. Propolis was known for its preserving abilities and effective treatments, and she applied these traits to her skin.
In ancient Greece, Hippocrates, the most admired figure in the history of medicine, would use propolis to heal infections and wounds.
It’s no wonder propolis is one of Hey Honey’s foundation ingredients!

Clairol Professional iThrive Keratin Rescue Treatment

Refreshing Susie Q’s DO!!

It can time to refresh my girlfriends hair again. Witch meant BLEACH! Muahaha Bleach really isn’t all that scary as long as you respect the product (follow the directions) you’ll be ok 😀 If it’s your first time using bleach or putting bleach on someone else’s hair, always start with a “test strand” to see how the hair will react. This information should also be with your bleach. I don’t recommend box bleach….. ever! Go to your local Beauty Supply Store!!!! Trust me & the cost is no different.

OK Moving on! This is Susie and she uses a hair masque about 2x a week. Her hair is really soft! So when working with her hair we want to keep the integrity of it. That’s always my goal when working with anyone’s hair. Instead of pushing the hair, Because I want instant result. Patience people! lol
(REMEMBER I am not a professional!) This is just how I do things.

I told Susie pick up some hair masque as well so we had something nice to hydrate her hair after bleaching. I was all out of good stuff. So she brings Clairol professional iThrive Keratin Rescue Treatment here are the stats.

Formulated with IntenseCURE™, Clairol Professional iThrive™ Keratin Rescue Treatment instantly repairs damage.

  • Revives dry, damaged hair
  • Creates a layer of protection around each hair strand
  • Color-safeIMG_8972

Here’s Susie’s beforeIMG_8939 (2)Products used where:

*ion color brilliance powder lightner with a Conditioning , Dust-free formula for on and off the scalp application. With Gardenia+Coconut

*ion Sensitive Scalp 30 volume creme developer

*Clairol Shimmer Lights Conditioning Shampoo for Blonde & Silver

*Any cheap conditioner to mix with the purple shampoo

*Wella T18 Lightest Ash Blonde Color Charm Toner

*Clairol iThive Keratin Rescue

(Linked products to Sally’s Beauty Supply where they were purchased)

Susie got a light trim & highlights this time around.

After rinsing the bleach out I could tell Susie’s hair was THIRSTY! But that’s pretty normal with bleach. I should have gotten a photo but completely forgot. I then used my mixture of purple shampoo & conditioner to help tone & moisturize her hair.  We then went on to tone her hair with the wella T18. I let her hair sit & tone for about 30 min. We then proceeded to giving her hair life again by using Clairol iThrive Keratin Rescue Treatment!

Here’s Susie’s hair afterIMG_8954 (2)

Oh man Clairol iThrive keratin Rescue is AWEmazing!!! Her hair came back to life in just 5MIN! That’s it 5 whole min. Normally I don’t like to dry hair after bleaching it but… ya know we couldn’t wait!!! Susie’s hair was more alive leaving my house then when it arrived. I highly recommend Clairol iThrive Keratin Rescue Treatment. Plus it’s super affordble & wont break the bank!! This is just one product in this line of Clairol Professional Keratin Rescue. Here’s some info:

KERATIN RESCUE

The 3-step system includes a shampoo to instantly repair damage, a conditioner for lasting nourishment and a rich, conditioning treatment for damaged hair. To smooth split ends, try Split End Repair as the finishing step. Here’s a link (click here) for more info.

Bringing hair back to life!

My daughter came to me the other day & decided she wanted to go back to having blonde hair. She had ombre for a bit & is just ready to move on with her hair color… as I’m sure most teens want do often lol After I put her highlights in, her hair was of course dried out & not very happy looking. So after a WEEK of letting her hair rest, we gave it the love it was missing! ( This is something I recommend to everyone who has just lightened their hair, No I’M NO PROFESSIONAL! I just have lots of experience with this.) I only used a couple of products because I wanted to see how well this OUAI hair masque worked. Here’s what happen…..

I started with washing & toning her hair, (with purple shampoo) but because purple shampoo is so drying I add conditioner to it. I’ll post a set by step with how to do all this as soon as I can… 🙂

After washing I applied OUAI hair care treatment masque & let it sit for about  4 min. Then rinsed it out with luke warm water. Cold water would of been better but my daughter was not having it haha

Letting her hair dry mostly naturally I applied Beyond the zone smooth criminal hair primer & Wella professionals shimmer delight shine spray. Then blow dried her hair the rest of the way.  Adding just a little more shine spray after. Here’s the outcome..

 

She is relieved to have “HAPPY” hair again haha

I highly recommend OUAI hair masque! It’s so hydrating! If your hair is in need of some love this combination of products is perfect & would work for all hair types!IMG_8651

LOREAL Voluminous Mascara

IMG_8781 (2)LOREAL Voluminous Original Mascara. These bad boys came in the mail today! I got the white primer & cobalt blue mascara. Super excited to try them out I wasted no time putting them on & getting a photo. First off let me just say I personally don’t care too much for mascara primer, but it did its job. I used the primer on my top lashes but not the bottom ones. Just to show the color & texture difference…& as you can see the color & texture is amazing on both! So if  your someone who likes a little color or a lot, I would suggest this to you. I have other colored mascaras & find that their formulas seem a bit dry. So when I’m trying to build the color up on my lashes they tend to start getting clumpy. I put about 2 coats on here, & I didn’t have any clumping problems yay! I’m Half way through the day & the color is still beautiful bright cobalt blue. That’s another thing about colored mascara at least for me, It seems the color fades away almost blending in & not standing out. Not here though!! So in the end I’m pretty happy with this product & would recommend it to anyone looking for some colorful mascara 🙂 I also really like this mascara in blackest black. IMG_8773 (2)I’m still not 100% sold on mascara primer lol but if your someone who like mascara primer tell me! What’s your favorite & why?

Ok let’s talk nails!

Normally I don’t do nail polish!! NOPE…. My nails are thinner so I’m lucky if it stays on half the day. Also I’m very impatient waiting for them to dry!! Not my thing, BUT my thoughts on nail polish may have changed!.. Possibly forever haha IMG_8361Both of these dry with a shiny finish. I would say you need two coats of the TRUST FUND BEAUTY but that’s ok it dries fast so who cares?! Now the PRETTY WOMAN you only need ONE coat & it also dries super quick! Love these two products & would recommend them to anyone! Nail polish lover or not:)

ABSOLUTE! Nail polish remover (peach) OH. MY! This is the most amazing nail polish remover ever! It has a very faint fragrance & it’s acetone FREE! Leaving my nails my nails feeling happy & hydrated. These come with 32 pads & at first I was thing ” Wow I’m going to use these in one sitting!”…NOPE! I can do both hands with ONE pad. Two at most ever & that only seems to be when I have darks colors on & a few layers.

From left to right: TRUST FUND BEAUTY in $12 latte / PRETTY WOMAN in I’m not a ballerina / ABSOLUTE! nail polish remover in peach
