Valentine’s Day Look #2: Pinky-Promise

 

Pink pink pink!

I have to say, recently I’m loving the color pink. Fine timing, eh? I mean, with Valentine’s Day coming up and all…..

So here’s a very pink look you can try this year! A black, gray, or white sweater with a matching pink scarf would go nicely with this look.

Blush It Up!

There’s nothing like a fresh rosy cheek to brighten one’s face up.

Most women are afraid to use a lot of blush, but if applied properly, it can make a stunning and beautiful difference!

I got many beauty/makeup books. I always love to learn more and be inspired by photos.

I’m especially happy to have gotten “Making Faces” as I have wanted it for a long time:

Recent Drug Store Buys…

IMG_2231

– L’Oreal’s Volume Collagen Conditioner

– Organix’s Coconut Milk Anti Breakage Serum

– St Ives’s Naturally Smoothing Body Lotion: Oatmeal & Shea Butter

– Rimmel London’s Lipstick in #070, Airy Fairy

– Wet n’ Wild Lipstick in #521A

IMG_2233

As I posted earlier, I already bought L’Oreal’s Total Repair 5 shampoo, and it did 100% what it promised to my hair. I love it!

So, I bought this conditioner by L’Oreal hoping for similar effects. Every girl wants more volume right?

Well, I wasn’t overly impressed with this conditioner, but not disappointed either. It added a bit of volume, but not as spectacular as the advertisements.

I would rate this product 6/10.

IMG_2234

Don’t you hate it when the light is from behind you, and you see all these millions of broken hairs forming a halo around your head?

I hate that too. VERY much.

This “anti-breakage” serum promises to add strength and flexibility to your hair, thus helping your hair not break as easily.

I love this product. I towel-dry my hair after washing, and then rub a bit of this serum in my palms, and run my fingers through my hair (avoiding my scalp) and then rubbing it into the ends of my hair.

BTW: It smells soooooo good!

My hair feels smooth and silky, and I don’t hear as many *snap snap*s as I brush my hair!

I would rate this product 9/10.

IMG_2240

I love nudes. This “Airy Fairy” is almost exactly the same as my natural lip colour.

It feels and looks good. However, it’s a bit boring. Not 100% happy with the look of it as it’s no different from plain ol’ me. But hey! It’s nude right? It lasts a reasonable amount of time.

I would rate this product 6.5/10.

IMG_2244

I really like this moisturizer. I’m a fan of St. Ives, and I’ve already tried 3 different selections of their Body Lotion.

This one is my favorite so far, it smells and feels the best so far. It does a good job at moisturizing too, but I think it feels more more than it does.

I would rate this product 7.5/10.

IMG_2263

My skin, and mostly my hair is feeling amazing and looking better. I really recommend Organix “Anti-Breakage Serum”!!!

Notice that i have my tree uuuup?! Merry Christmas!
