Fresh Spring Green

 

 

So, excuse the chipping on some of my nails… I took these photos on day 3. Haha. (Which, I think, is pretty good for 3 days wear-time!)

I’m not a huge fan of cool colored nailpolish, especially green, but I really ended up liking this one!!

I used “the more the merrier” by Essie.

Recent Drug Store Buys…

IMG_2231

– L’Oreal’s Volume Collagen Conditioner

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

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

– Wet n’ Wild Lipstick in #521A

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Mac “Snob” Dupe

I fell in love with Mac’s lipstick in “snob”. However, I’m a bit tight with money now, and didn’t feel like spending $30 on a lipstick!

After some research, I discovered a site for Mac dupes! I learned that Revlon’s Lipstick in “Primrose” gave nearly the exact same shade as “Snob”! I got it for about $7 with tax!

I purchased it, and love it! It’s creamy, smooth, and is such a neat colour! It’s a pale pink, that seems to almost have a “neon” sheen in different lighting.

Saved myself $30 and am just as happy, if not more!
