First I just need to say that I got this free but all opinions are my own.

I really liked the taste of this popcorn. It was a good mix of sweet and salty. It is my new go to snack. I really didn't like how it was less than half full though.

Blinkle Shimmer Eyeshadow Review

*Color is "Tangerine Light"*

Price: $4.25

What It Says:
"Effortlessly create eyes that WOW with this shimmer shadow. Its pigment will coat your eyes in super-saturated color with hints of ultra-fine shimmer. With every blink, the shimmer reflects the light and makes the eyes look desirable and sultry. Use a wet brush to achieve a foil finish. 
  • Bold vivid color
  • Smooth and creamy
  • Can be used wet or dry"

Let me start off by saying that this was sent to me in one of my beauty boxes and I really wanted to give it a fair chance. I have many palettes with this color in it or even close to this color in it and I am not looking for new brands of shadow but for the sake of the review I decided to try it. I found the color very bland and there was so much fallout no matter how I applied or what brush I used. You do, however, get a lot of product in this as most other shadows are quite smaller. Compared to my other brands this seemed dull and lacked sparkle. I also found that half way thru the day it looked cakey on my lids and this has never happened to me before with a shadow. I was really not impressed with the product at all! Top pic is indoor lighting and bottom pic is in sun light.

Would I Purchase Again?: Not at all!

The DL On Hair Treatments

So recently I had finally had enough of my dry damaged hair and went to a specialist to get some advice and recommendations to fix this mess of a mop on my head lol. I went to my salon and spoke with someone who specializes in damaged hair and I was totally blown away by all the things that I was doing wrong lol.

I have always used hair treatment to try to fix my hair and it didn't seem to work. Lately it had been feeling even more like straw AFTER i treated my hair and I was beginning to think that nothing was going to fix it. I would even keep some treatments in my hair over night thinking that I would get better results but it turns out that is the problem!

Hair needs a healthy balance between protein and moisture and if you over protein you hair you will end up with straw like hair and it will dry out. For this reason every time you treat your hair with a protein treatment you must then use a moisture based protein free treatment to balance it out. This will prevent you from drying out you hair. The other thing she told me was that you should never leave the product on for longer than the directions say. This will cause you hair to dry out even more.

I went home and looked thru the ingredients of all my treatments and leave in...all of them had some form of protein in them (keratin is another form of protein and should be looked for as well) Right away I went on the lookout for a protein free treatment and a protein free leave in conditioner. I went to my local Sallys and after going thru almost every product I finally found something that was protein free. It was Loreal Natures Therapy Mega Moisture Nurishing Creme.
The other thing I picked up was a new protein treatment/reconstructor to help repair the damage I have done from the bleach.

I couldn't seem to find a leave in conditioner that was protein free but I went to Walmart after and found this Live Clean Argan Oil Leave In Conditioner. I have to say this leave in is amazing. It sprays a very fine mist so there are not clumps left in my hair and it does not look greasy. It smells yummy and the best part is that it is not doing further damage to my hair so I can use it daily.

So I have been using this combo for a few weeks now and it has made all the difference in the condition of my hair. It feels so much better even when wet. After I get out of the bath m hair feels smooth and is not as elastic feeling. Once dried it is softer and looks less frizzy. 

I honestly wish I had been told this a long time ago and now have to spread this awesome piece of advice to everyone I know lol.

Hope this helps you!

Bellapierre Cosmetics Shimmer Powder Review

Price: $15

What It Says:
"Using 100% pure Mica powder, these beautiful shimmer powders will provide long lasting, vibrant color without any additional filler that can often smear, crease, fade and even cause allergic reaction.
Recommended by make-up artists and dermatologists, bellapierre shimmer powders are 100% Hypoallergenic and are suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive."
Overall: When I first received this in a beauty box I thru it in with the rest of the shimmer powders that I figured I would never use but then the other day I wanted a really shimmery under brow highlight and thought of this. I am SO happy that I did! This is PERFECT for that under brow pop! I now use this for every shimmery type shadow look that I do. I also like to use it in the corner of my eyes for even more pop or color. There is so much product in this that it will last me forever and it doesn't have a lot of fall out like lots of loose powders do. This is very shimmery and the color is very vibrant! The pic on the left if no sun and on the right with sun.

Would I Purchase Again?: YES!!! Although I think this little container is going to last me forever.

Absolute New York Nano Liner Review!

Price: $9.99

What It Says:
"An ultra-fine liner that features a super slim, tapered felt tip that allows for pin point precision. Experience unprecedented versatility - from subtle definition to the boldest of black."

Overall: I was so excited when I received this because I figured it could really help get that sharp looking wing and I was right! Below is a picture of my wing done with this liner and I was so impressed. You are really able to get a sharp looking edge with this liner and it is easier to control the thickness of the entire wing. My only complaint is that the formula is not very black so I had to go over the entire wing 3 times to get a very black color (hence the almost messy looking lines) I have been using it for about 2 weeks now and every time I have to apply 3 coats so it is definitely the formula. This is also not the worst liner I have ever used and aside from the lack of color I love it and will continue using it until it is empty.

Would I Purchase Again?: I really liked the concept of this nano liner but it is not as black as it could be so no I would not purchase again.

Benefits NEW Ka Brow Review

Price: $24.99

What It Says:
"Brush on rich, buildable color! This all-in-one eyebrow cream-gel easily fills, sculpts and defines brows. Plus the built-in hard-angled brush magically converts to a full-size brush for precise control & effortless application! Includes signature Tips & Tricks!
  • Builds from natural-looking to dramatic
  • Cream-gel color
  • 24 hour* waterproof** wear"

*note*This is just a deluxe sample as I went to Sephora recently and was given this to try out. It was awesome because they have so much product in them and they offered all the shades as samples. 

I do not have enough good things to say about this product! It is somewhat similar to the ABH brow pomade but is so much easier to work with and it has a brush in it so you don't have to go out and buy one! The brush is the perfect size for brows as well and it does not shed. I didn't even need to use my Gimmie Brow over this as it kept the hairs in place and filled in the spots to make them perf. I find that pomades like the ABH one takes a lot of time and practice to work with and a lot of people give up but with this it is so easy I feel like anyone can do it. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to try something other than the usual pencil and wants to start really getting into sculpting and perfecting brows. Look for their other new brow products and the re released brow line coming soon.

Would I Purchase Again?: You bet. When this deluxe sample is done I will be buying the full sized product.
