I told you that I would upload my March favorites soon! It's still early March so I think I'm posting this in a reasonable timeframe, right? Well this time around I have a lot of bareMinerals products to share with you, two of them which are brand new. I had been waiting for the new bareMinerals bronzers and highlighters since I first heard about them in the fall of 2016 and they're finally here! Apart from my makeup favorites, I also discovered a new toothbrush that will change your life if you have a small mouth like I do. Yes, I will be raving about a toothbrush. Are you surprised though? This is the same girl that raved about a toothpaste not too long ago.
LC at Ashen Salon in La Jolla, I've been making videos describing each and every haircut. In the past I've been describing her haircutting technique in my videos because it does stand out from what past hairdressers have done for me. LC is a big fan of cutting curly/wavy hair dry in order to not cut too much length and give the hair more movement. No one has ever taken as much time or effort into cutting my hair, and that's why LC is literally my favorite hairdresser. In this post you'll be able to come along with me to get my haircut, that means that you'll see LC's technique on video and you'll also get some tips along the way.
Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam. Ouai (pronounced "way") is the new "it" hair care company that was founded by celebrity hairstylist, Jen Atkin. She's most known for styling the Kardashian girls and like we all know by now, the Kardashians (love them or hate them) are pretty much the biggest trendsetters in the beauty world. Much like the Kardashians, Ouai has built an incredible social media following and gained a lot of beauty blogger fans along the way. Literally everything they've released so far has been raved and raved about, but no product beats the hype that surrounded the launch of the Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam. Yes, this is a dry shampoo in mousse form. Since this product was incredibly overhyped, I decided to give it a try on my dark wavy/curly hair.
Sephora there's displays showcasing the latest trends and beauty innovations. I know I told myself that I didn't "need" any makeup, but screw it- I just want to try out new products! What's the point of makeup if you can't have a little fun with it, right? In this latest "Playing With New Makeup" I'll be trying pore blurring powder, a silicone sponge, and a primer that oddly enough smells like a sugary cereal that I love.
Walmart Beauty Box and Birchbox. I've been very happy with both of those subscriptions, so you're going to continue to see me unbox them and share the products that I'm going to be trying out. I think when it comes down to value, both subscription services just get it right. You can't beat spending $5 for the Walmart Beauty Box, especially when the samples are extremely generous and you often receive coupons. And if you want to branch out and try other luxe brands, then Birchbox is definitely the subscription box for you.
Milk Makeup Lip Color in Dip Out, I knew I needed it in my collection. This shade is a wearable vampy red and I personally think it would compliment nearly every skin tone. I honestly love this shade that much that the whole look was made so it would complement the lip color. That's true love right there.
