April IPSY Glam Bag Review

Hello sweet friends!

It’s ipsy glam bag time again! I’ll have to admit that this month’s bag was not my favorite. All the products were just okay in my opinion. The tie dye bag was the best part for me.

My favorite product this month was the Probelle nail polish in the shade ‘In or Out’. It is a nice, muted purple and looks great on my toes for spring.

The next product I received was the pur-lisse Beauty Blue Lotus + White Tea Sheet Mask. It is very moisturizing as has a nice a smell. I  just don’t care for sheet masks.

I was not a fan of the Benefit Lash Prime at all. I used my everyday Loreal mascara over it and my eyelashes looked clumpy and spikey. I am sure it is meant to be used with the They’re Real mascara, but I did not have that on hand.

The NUDESTIX lip and cheek pencil in Mystic was a nice product. I did not try it on my cheeks because I prefer not to use cream blush on my face but it was a very pretty shade on the lips. It was moisturizing with a subtle scent. It applies a lot lighter than it looks in the package.

I wore the lip product to a wedding a few weekends ago. It’s is a nice neutral shade.

This LAB blending brush is a good staple to have in your collection. I can never have enough! The bristles are soft but firm enough to do a good blending job.

Loreal #extraordinaryhair VOXBOX [My hair journey]

Hello sweet friends!

 I was recently sent the L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil shampoo, conditioner and serum in an Influencer VoxBox and I wanted to give you all a quick review.

  

Overall, I really liked these products. They smelled amazing and left my hair feeling soft and moisturized. The shampoo had a nice lather and the conditioner left my hair soft without leaving behind a greasy reside.

  

The serum was my favorite product. I used it as a finishing product when I was done styling my hair. It left a nice shine, without looking greasy, and controlled all frizz and flyways.

  

I would recommend this product if you have dry or damaged hair and are looking to add shine and moisture. All three products are affordable and work well together and individually.

  

Here is my before and after. The after picture was taken 1 week after using all 3 products regularly. I didn’t notice a huge difference in the pictures, but I can feel that my hair is softer and more manageable. 

I also often get asked [mostly on Instagram] if I can explain how my hair is cut and colored. I thought I would show you the journey I have gone through to get what I consider my “perfect hair”.

My hair is a medium length with long layers. The color is mostly my natural brown with a mix between baylayage and ombré.  My ends are lighther and I also have some lighter pieces framing my face and throughout the rest of my hair! I hope that helps!
