For Dry and Thirsty hair

I went through the strenuous process of bleaching my hair from dark brunette to ash blonde and I am still going. I take a few months break in between sessions and look after my hair as well as I can but bleach will still do damage to your hair no matter what.

Looking for something indulgent to mask my hair in, I stumbled on the Palmers hair products. I already LOVE their leave in conditioner, without it I can’t detangle my bleached hair AT ALL. I saw this protein pack and decided to give it a go and my was I surprised. It packs one hell of a moisture punch and my hair actually felt all snotty upon rinsing…which I love cause it means my hair will be silky smooth after. I recommend this to anyone who needs a boost every now and then…and also, not to bleach your hair haha.

Wet n Wild Coverall Primer

Primer Perfection

For a drugstore product, this has been a definite hit from the brand. It might be a tiny tube but you use so very little that it will still last really long. I only use it over my problem areas and not my entire face and let me just tell you that it does really cover all. It is a white cream-like liquid that applies clear on the skin. It gets absorbed into the skin quickly and does not feel greasy at all. It definitely smooths out my skin and my foundation looks much more full coverage and flawless with the use of this product. I used it on a very hot day and it did not melt off of my face or anything. It stayed in place all day long.

Stain Pain

These nail polishes are fabulous and I love the colour selection especially the nudes and everyday colours. But the darker and more intense colours like the reds and greens stain the crap out of my nails. I have never been interested in using a base coat as it has never extended the wear of any of my polishes which I know could avoid this issue. But even removing these colours get the product everywhere and it really does stain very badly. The quality of the actual product though is very nice and I love the strange shape of the bottle. Something different. The price is also excellent!

Yes yes yes!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never been a fan of liquid foundations as they are either too sheer in coverage, discolour during the day or settle into fine lines but let me tell you about this product! It is crazily affordable, has full coverage and can be layered and best of all, it has a dewy finish. I have dry skin but always use a setting powder to make my makeup last and that sometimes tend to make the foundation overly dry…not in this case. It still stays reasonably dewy and comfortable but doesn’t budge all day. It is my perfect winter foundation and the shade is spot on! I have fair skin in winter and quite tanned in the summer and with this great price, I can have as many shades as I need. I have applied it using both a beauty sponge as well as a stippling brush and both work very well. I prefer the brush though for a more airbrushed finish. These are just as great as their concealers. I hope they come out with some illuminating/glowing primer sometime soon as well.

Shine on!

I have this product in 2 shades, the 50watt which is a warm toned golden champagne colour as well as the 90watt which is a cool toned rose gold, pinky colour. These are very finely milled so no chunky glitter flakes on your skin. They are extremely pigmented yet very flattering. They don’t have much fallout and last on my skin for at least 8 hours. They are very affordable so you can have as many as you need and because they are so pigmented, you don’t need to go in heavy which makes the product last so much longer. L.A Girl has been slaying it with their products lately and this is another win in my opinion! The packaging is very cute!

Dupe for a few products!

I have this in Brunette and I have been loving it. It is a definite dupe to the Anastasia Beverly hills brow or so I have heard as well as the Nyx Micro Brow Pencil which works really well but is about double the price. This is great to have as an alternative in my case. I use only pomades but when I don’t have time to perfectly paint on my brows, this product works really well. It is not as soft as other brow pencils, which I prefer as I tend to overdraw my brows when they are too creamy. I want to try a few more shades as well. I say it is a definite “give it a try” product.
