Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak- Dry Shampoo Review

NYM-dry-shampoo Hey guys!

If you keep up with Influenster (which is an amazing site btw) you would know that they got this product in their Violet VoxBox! I heard so many good things so I decided to go for it and purchase it myself. I have a Dry conditioner but ran out of Dry shampoo forever ago, so that also helped the decision!

If you’ve never purchased one I really recommend doing so. It really is a hair and time saver when it comes to not washing your hair everyday! For instance, had hairspray on yesterday and hair felt less than presentable today, well spray this stuff on your roots and all over and you’ve got brand “new” hair. (Boyfriend approved!)

A lot of hair products have a heavy fragrance to them and while sometimes it’s nice, sometimes it is not, so I enjoy that this one lacks a heavy scent. It smells fresh, light and airy.

Some dry shampoos can also have the “white cast” which is a powdery white streak that can show up in your hair. (NOT CUTE!) This product does not give you that and it makes your hair just as soft as you would have if you had washed it! Overall I love this product and would repurchase.

If you’d tried this let me know what your thoughts are!

(I paid $5.99 @ my Harris Teeter)


Rite Aid 75% small haul+ Very cheap Almay Liquid Lip Balms!+Polish haul

Good Morning! I hit up Rite Aid yesterday with the intentions of getting some of these Almay Liquid Balms and of course I had coupons!! Not only were the Almay cosmetics 40% this week but I had $5/2 coupons. I needed mascara and I had a coupon for that also so I grabbed this Covergirl one. I’ve always loved CG mascaras so I’m sure that I’ll love it! I got less than I thought I’d get but I like what I got! The $5/2 Almay cosmetics coupon is still available so I’d print it out if I were you!! That is a very high value coupon!

Also have some misc. things like L.A. Girl, Jesse’s Girl and Sally Hansen (which was provided by Influenster.) There’s a random Sinful Shine in there which not really sure why but I purchased that a while back I’ve just neglected to swatch it! Oops!

Becca Cosmetics-The One Perfecting Brush Review

Screen Shot 2013-11-19 at 2.41.53 PMpress sample iconGood Afternoon Ladies (& Gents)!

I have a brush to review today that was sent to me from iFabbo and I am pretty excited to share it with you guys.

This product is called The One Perfecting Brush by Becca Cosmetics, which promises to have the ability to replace the function of 10 different makeup tools.

My first impression of this brush was definitely the quality of the product itself. The brushes’ unique shape; to the bristles, it does not seem to be made with ANY cheap materials.

Milani Texture Nail Polish- Fall 2013

Screen Shot 2013-11-17 at 2.09.17 PMDSC01561

The textured polish craze caught my eye when Zoya came out with their Pixies but I unfortunately do not have any of those, so when I saw these darker textured polishes I was very interested. These are by Milani cosmetics, a brand I am not completely familiar with. I do know that they are the same manufacturing company as Jordana cosmetics, which I love.  While I prefer the sparkly finish over the one without any, I really like these. I’m very into the vampy shades. Most of these are two coaters and they dry alright. I had problems with the first two staining my cuticles so be careful if you do not want stained skin! I got these from Cherry culture website for $4 on sale, but you can buy these from the Milani website as well. Click below for pictures! Read the rest of this entry »

Julie G Textured Nail Polish in Sugar Plum Fairy

Hello Ladies & Gents! Have you seen the new shades for the holidays for Julie G??? I’ve got two so far and I’m really impressed! This is  Sugar Plum Fairy, it a GORGEOUS purple shade with a glittery finish and has no chunks of glitter unlike the collection they came out with last year I think. I cannot remember what that collection was called but I did share two of those on my blog in Blueberry Fizz and Crushed Candy. I did two coats 🙂
