Happy Holidays My Loves!! OMGGGGG can you guys believe how quickly this year went?! I still feel like it’s 2014 :)))))) Although 2016 flew by so fast, I must say there were some INSANE product launches this year which have literally changed my life!!! Check out the video for my Holy Grail Products of 2016!
My first thoughts when I received these Armani/Privé fragrances from Giorgio Armani was “OMGGGGG they are beautiful!” They actually arranged the perfume bottles to resemble Continue reading
When I first heard about the new Dyson Supersonic Blow Dryer, to be honest, I wasn’t impressed. To me it looks like a gimmick and I have a hard time trusting a futurisic, strange, ufo-like product; or something I would imagine like an out-of-this-world, supersonic gun in a movie. So I didn’t buy into the hype… just yet.Continue reading
When it comes to collaborations, NOTHING gets to the core of childhood-sweetness like Hello Kitty + Makeup! So when I saw the Hello Kitty X ColourPop Cosmetics Collection, it’s safe to say I freaked out! My initial reaction when I saw this was…… OMG, this is GENIUS!! Okay true story, I couldn’t actually afford Hello Kitty when I was little, so this collection is even more special since it is accessible! Oh and ICYMI (as of 2 years ago), Hello Kitty is no longer a Continue reading

Hey My Loves!! So I tried something different today…I used the new Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipsticks on my eyes!! I am obsessed with their wide range of colors (especially their blue ones!) so decided to see how I could create a cool makeup look using them. Let me know what you guys think! Have you ever tried lipstick as eyeshadow before?

Real talk, who wouldn’t trust celeb stylist Jen Atkin with their hair? Exactly. So when our hair needs serious TLC post-color, we turned to her Ouai Hair Treatment Masques for some damage control. Here’s what we thought:
What it is: This pack comes with eight treatment doses (meant to be used twice a week), to restore and heal hair in a matter of minutes:
What it does: Uses ingredients like artichoke leaf extract and jojoba to nourish and repair strands. Just apply to hair, comb through with your fingers, wait 5 to 10 minutes, and then rinse out.
What we liked: Our ends were seriously parched from over-styling and color. This mask is bringing it back to life. After one use, we noticed much softer, bouncier ends without feeling the least bit weighed down. We also like to apply to our ends before a long gym session so we’re ready to go once we hit the shower. The light floral scent that makes the treatment feel extra luxurious.
What we didn’t like: The amount felt right for shorter hair, but we can imagine it takes more than one if you have super long and thick hair. Let us know if you tried it in the comments and what you thought too!
Price: $32 for 8 packets
We’ve tried peel-off masks before, but what we were most interested in this one was testing its claims to give you “more toned, sexy contours” (their words, not ours).
What it is: A brush-on, peel-off treatment mask to firm and tone skin.
What it does: Helps to lift, tone, and tighten skin.
What we liked: We loved that this comes with a mini brush that easily spreads this gooey, marshmallow-like mask over our skin. Just make sure you avoid the eye area, brows, and hair line since it might be tricky to peel off from those areas. This mask felt otherworldy – it could have been that it sets to a brilliant, Tin Man-chrome, or maybe the light coconut-ey scent got to us. Whatever the case, after 30 minutes, the mask easily (and not painfully!) peels off to what we felt after a few uses was a brighter, tighter result.
What we didn’t like: Admittedly, it took a few go’s for us to really appreciate it (and because we might have mistakenly tried to wash it off the first time instead of peeling it off – it is water-soluble so it did dissolve but after a few minutes of scrubbing over the sink). Our skin did feel more behaved and glowing after peeling off – we’re not entirely sure if it was the silver residue from the chrome. That said, “sexy contours” might be overstating it. Basically, don’t expect miracles but it is a good mask for a weekly reset…and your next Instagram pic.
