Series: Drugstore Dry Shampoo Review- Suave Keratin Infusion



I'll be doing a Dry Shampoo series for the next few weeks. I have been testing out tons of dry shampoos. I have about 4 drugstore brands and 4 high end brands. So I'll start with the drugstore brands first!

So the first one is Suave Keratin Infusion and unlike the other dry shampoos this one is formulated with Keralock Technology and contains keratin. Along with refreshing your hair and extending your blowout, it also revives volume. I was surprised how much volume it gave me when I put it on. It actually says you can put it on clean washed hair for added volume. I love that It doesn't turn your hair super white or grey after the product is applied. They also say it is comparable to Bumble and Bumble. I need to use the B&B again to get a good comparison though. But overall I really love this product so far its my favorite, but we have a lot more to try!




This is one day without washing my hair. I don't know why my hair looks two tones?? I just dyed it back brown and its super fading already maybe that's it?!


As you can tell the product doesn't go on super white. It is actually barely noticeable.



The end result looks great, super shiny, fluffy, and clean. And now my hair is all one color again! lol

Come back and see my next review on The Dove Invigorating Dry Shampoo.

This nail polish came in my Julep maven intro box. I really like this color a lot. I don't have a lot of light purples, and this kind of has a pastel look to it. Overall I really like this color! Perfect for spring!

Babyliss Pro Tourmaline Curling Iron review.

I recently had the chance to review the Babyliss Pro Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron. As stated on their website, the Babyliss Tourmaline Ceramic Curling iron emits negative ions and far-infrared heat that brings a number of additional benefits to your hair:



1. Eliminates static electricity                                      3. Neutralize odors
2. Preserve more moisture within the hair shaft             4. Causes less damage to the hair cuticle

I have been using a Shampoo lately that has been giving my hair a lot static. As soon as I curled my hair with the Babyliss, it eliminated all static electricity. I really like this curling iron, I have used many, many, curling irons and this one is in my top 5. As a hairstylist, I must have a ton of hair tools. I like having a variety for my clients. The Babyliss has a heat setting with 40 different settings and heats up to a whopping 428 F. There is even a lock button to lock it on your preferred setting. I put mine on the highest setting, as my hair is difficult to hold a curl. The only think that bugs me about this curling iron is, every time I'm curling my hair I keep pressing the on/off button! It's just right where your fingers are! Maybe my fingers are fat?? But other than that the performance of this curling iron is great. 

Below are pictures taken on two different occasions. I wanted to test it out a couple times before I reviewed it.

e.l.f. Brush Review e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush



I know a lot of you out there use E.L.F. brushes, I myself am a first time buyer. I recently just bought a couple brushes and one in particular I cant stop talking about. It's the e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush.  Really? How have I not used this already! I have the MAC 187 brush that is a little similar to this one, and the e.l.f. brush blows my mind. I am so in love. I use it for putting on my foundation as I've seen a few Beauty Gurus do. The application is flawless in my opinion, and the foundation is distributed evenly. Now, I know I will probably go through this brush faster than a Sigma or Mac, But that is the beauty of e.l.f.'s products being so cheap!


This brush is only $3, so if you are in the market for awesome cheap brushes, here it is!


This cheap little brush is now my Holy grail of brushes!

My March Glam Bag!

Hey Beauties! I received My Glam Bag today! Yay! I think I was more excited about the makeup bag than anything. So In my bag I received the following:

Pur-liss- Pur protect SPF 30 Daily Moisturizer
Mural- Eye Lift Perfecter
DermStore $25 gift card ( have to spend $50 to get discount)
Keracolor- Color Enhancer Leave-in Treatment

And this item was different in every ones bag, I got the 3Lab Perfect Cleansing foam.

Overall I'm ok with my bag. I like the Cleansing Foam its a full sized product. However I don't really like the gift cards when we have to spend to use them! I mean I like them don't get me wrong, but I know it's frustrating when we are paying $10 to end up spending more.

Enjoy the little video an pictures below!
