Drugstore Makeup Mini-Haul!

CVS Mini-Haul

I was in need of a little more color and lashes so I stopped into the drugstore on my way home.  Now the plan was to pick up a blush or two and a few new lip colors…yeah, OK 😉

I always pick up at least one pair of these Ardell lashes in 120 Demi. They look great without looking exaggerated. When I want to feel glam, I wear these. I am also looking to try a new pressed powder to set my liquid foundation with and I’ve heard good things about CG Tru blend. Mac studio fix is my default, but I’m trying to branch out.

The Milani lippies look like they have great pigmentation and I need some new colors for spring. Still so much more colors needed to build a kit. I’ve hear the NYX eye pencils are everything to make your eyeshadows pop, so I had to pick up a couple.

Last but not least the Milani Easybrow in Natural Taupe. I love that this has a spooly to comb those unruly brows. I use the liner on my waterline to help me look more “awake”. I’ve always found white liner to be way to bright for me to where anywhere near my face, so this is an awesome alternative. Plus, I saw a video from Coloured Beautiful and she used a non-white liner for the the same effect and she’s the beezknees!

This is what the lippies look like on my arm.

  • The pink is 64 Matte Orchid
  • The nude is 61 Matte Naked
  • The Gloss is 10 Coral Crush.

Shea Moisture Professional Line Product Review!!

Hello Beauties!

Welcome to my first product review video!
I received this product line at a Kinks and Drinks event from Tribe Called Curl last month and I’ve been using them ever since.
What I really noticed, and am loving, is that when I finger detangle there is a lot less hair in my drain catch. This is wonderful because hopefully it means my hair is getting stronger (as advertised) and breaking less! That alone, makes this product worth using for me.

Here is some of the info you may be looking for:
Shea Moisture Professional

Products used and their label listed features:
Cocoshea Biolipid Complex w/Agave Nectar & Black Seed Oil (what a mouthful! I’ll call it CBC hence forward.)
Moisture Infusion Shampoo
-Deep Rehydration
-Curl Definition
-Frizz Control

Rehydrating Hair Masque (great for detangling!)
-Deep Conditioning
-Intensive Rehydration
-Strengthening (So far, less breakage!)

Curl Memory Leave-In Conditioner
-Lock in Definition (Gives me Great definition!)
-Reduce Shrinkage
-Block Humidity

Thank you so much to Tribe Called Curl for the awesome experience at Kinks and Drinks and wonderful product swag!!!

If you were wondering, no, this is not a paid review (I sure wish it was though!!).
Feel free to contact me for a review of your product!
