Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texture and Body Spray

I received this bottle from my January’s GlossyBox.

Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texture and Body Spray

After I took my shower last night, I sprayed some on my hair while it was semi wet still and fell asleep.

Then when I woke up, I just sprayed a little more on and rubbed/massaged my scalp to puff it out and here is the end results.

I have to say that I’m impressed with Toni & Guy’s Casual Sea Salt Texture and Body Spray!

It truly does give my long hair body and volume.

When I run out of this bottle,  I’ll have to go out and get the full size bottle.

The Toni&Guy’s website states this about the product:

Creates texture and body with light to medium hold. Suitable for all hair types and perfect for achieving a lived in, beach look. Spritz evenly root to tip, on towel-dried or dry hair and work through to create tousled waves and natural movement.

For extra hold and texture, layer through dry hair and re-style with fingers.

This is exactly what I did without even looking it up until now.

What do y’all Beauties think??

The Original Beauty Blender review

The Original Beauty Blender review

Beautyblender FilipinaMacBarbie

 

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS LIL SPONGE!

I was very hesitate in buying this at Sephora a couple months back but I did.

I bought the pink BeautyBlender at Sephora and just received the white BeautyBlender in my January GlossyBox.

The White BeautyBlender is the original size and the Pink BeautyBlender is when its wet.  It doubles in size.

beautyblenderbeauty blenderbeautyblender 2014

I put my foundation on a glass topper and wet my BeautyBlender then dab my BeautyBlender in my foundation then dab it all on my face.  I use the big part of the BeautyBlender on my cheeks, forehead,  and chin then I use the pointed side for my nose, around my nose, and under my eyes.

The pointed part of the BeautyBlender is made for the hard to get areas and the bigger side for all other areas of your face.

I’ve tried and wasted my money on the knock-offs of the BeautyBlender just because I didn’t want to spend $20 on a sponge.  The knock-offs DOES NOT compare at all!

The finish is flawless!

I highly highly highly recommend The Original BeautyBlender!

Until next time Dolls

What do you use to apply your foundation and why?

Mastey Color Protecting Leave In Treatment with Argan oil and Olive oil

Mastey’s Color Protecting Leave In Oil Treatment

You know I’ve been raving about the Macadamia Hair treatment oil as of late, but I received this  Mastey’s Color Protecting Leave In Oil Treatment in one of my GlossyBoxes so I decided to give it a go the beginning of this year.

Mastey hair treatment

I’m actually loving this treatment oil a whole lot better! 

It’s very light and has a amazing light scent to it.

I decided to look up the information on it, and found out its quite pricey too. Of corse it would be!  Anything I find that I love would be.
It’s $25 for a 2 fl oz bottle or $40 for a 4 fl oz bottle.

My daughter has also been using it and loving it, but now that I know the cost of it, she’s gonna have to back away from the bottle!  IT’S ALL MINE!  I’m jus’ sayin’.
Do you blame me?

Now, here’s some photos of me this morning.  Mind you that I just woke up so I’m not looking all fabulous.
And Yes, I’m wearing Hello Kitty pajamas.
(I’ve told you that I’m just a big kid in a adults body.) 🙂

First Impression Zoya’s Color Lock System

My First Impression on Zoya’s Color Lock Nail Treatment System

Zoya color lock system

 

I received my Zoya Color Lock Nail Treatment System on Thursday, Jan 2 and I was so excited to try this system out.  If you haven’t seen my post on the arrival and contents of the system click HERE.

This system is suppose to keep your nail polish looking fresh and keeps the polish in place for an extended time.

I removed my old nail polish with the Remove +, it also preps your nails for the nail polish.  I put a coat of the Anchor on, which is the base polish, then I chose the color Normani from the Zoya Naturel Collection.  I put on two coats of the Normani then I put the Armor (Top Coat) on.  After that I put a drop of the Fast Drops on each nail to get them dry fast.

I normally schedule a time to do my nails where I know I won’t be doing anything with my hands.  It’s normally always when I’m lounging on my couch watching a show.

The Fast Drops seriously made my nail polish dry fast.  I kept doing the thumb print test to see if it would smudge a little.  I think it dried in less than 10 minutes.
To me that’s fast considering having put 4 coats of products on my nails.

Here’s a few pictures.  Now I forgot to take a picture when I first put the products on.  I was too into the show that I was watching then fell asleep.

These pictures are with the  Zoya Color Lock System on for 3 days.
Not one smudge, bubbling,  chip, or tip fading.

I’ve read several reviews with different opinions on this system.

One from The Polish Addict and one from Scrangie.
I started to get nervous when I started reading the reviews because at one point Scrangie had terrible bubbling in her first review HERE  but had since did another review HERE.

So far so good for my personal nail thoughts.

I’ll keep you posted on my final thoughts and review on the Zoya Color Lock System.

Until next time Dolls

Have you tried this system out yet or do you have another system that you use?
