Okay I am no fashion expert.
I am not a makeup artist.
And definitely not the best with hair.
But I thought I would share what I am trying out lately. Join me in the bathroom…please excuse the toilet.
Lets start with hair.
I want to get a brazilian keratin hair treatment but go back forth on it, for two reasons money and chemicals.
So when I was at Wholefoods last week, I saw these GioVanni Brazilian Keratin Shampoo and Conditioner with argan oil on the shelf and decided to try them. They sounded promising, right?
Having very thick hair…dealing with humidity and hot weather the last thing I want to do is spend hours doing my hair. Once reason why I wear it up just about everyday.
So how did I like?
Well as you can see from the picture on the left, my hair still frizzy after blowing dry. So it failed there.
I still had to straighten my hair. And the smooth hair did last long because by the afternoon time I put my hair up due to it being really frizzy.
So I am a little disappointed in these hair products. They were about $8 bucks each, so ya I will still use them up as I do not like wasting money.
I have only used it once, so who knows maybe these hair products will do better another time.
Have you tried these products? What are your thoughts on hair straightening techniques?
Okay now makeup.
I have tried all types of makeup like most girls do. Natural. Vegan. Mineral makeup. Top of the line. And for my skin, it is hard to find something that does not irritate it, break it out, but yet still covers my breakouts and scars, control shine, etc. And one thing I had noticed was that some of the vegan cosmetic products I tried in the past actually cause my skin to breakout??? Crazy to think that something natural can cause my skin to go crazy. I had to throw a lot of way and sadly could not get my money back
But I have heard good things about Tarte makeup and decided a trip to Sephora was in order as my current makeup was running out. (I currently have chanel).
I got 3 products to try:
The primer was lovely! It is a clear gel and I felt it was light on my skin. And do feel it helped with my makeup going on smoothly.
I do not wear liquid foundation, I find it too heavy for my skin. So I rely on different powders to help give me coverage.
I liked the way the powder felt on my skin but do not feel it gave me great coverage. Hard to really tell in the picture, I know. And the eye shadows were fun! Although I have Naked eye shadows too which I just love.
Overall felt Tarte makeup is pretty good quality. I will have to wait till I wear it more to see if I will buy it again.
And for concealer I currently use this one from Josie Maran.
I love Josie’s idea behind her products, but find this concealer does not last. I have to touch up under my eyes through out the day.
Anyone else use this concealer? Thoughts?
Have you tried Tarte makeup? What is in your makeup bag?
Any products your like for hair or makeup?
till next time,
PS: getting close to sharing Lori’s wedding photos, she is working on those posts! Should be up this week!
