I was excited to try this because the color was so pretty! However, it didn’t really take on my highlighted brown hair. My roots are kind of reddish and there is a barely discernible tint in my highlights. However, I found the kit very easy to use on myself (an at-home hair color newbie!) and it also smelled mice and left my hair so soft! I received this product for free from Influenster for review and am receiving no compensation!
It’s a super matte, neutral red. It’s the red lip you think of when you envision Gwen’s iconic style. And the packaging! I love the geometric gold on black, it’s so pretty. There were several lipsticks included in the release (with about four of those being shades of red), but 714 is the only one with a brand-new finish and formula – Mega Matte. This is very close to MAC’s Retro Matte finish or like a matte liquid lipstick. Very dry, flat and pigmented. I have many reds in my collection, but none with a truly neutral tone like 714. When I say it’s neutral, I mean that it doesn’t lean too cool with blue or pink undertones or too warm with orange or yellow undertones. This lipstick is the iconic Gwen Stefani red lip that she’s been sporting for basically forever.
I purchased a 2012 Elantra last year and I absolutely love it! It was my first new car and the dealership made it easy to purchase and the Elantra was easily the best value out of all the cars I looked at. It comes STANDARD with XM radio and Bluetooth connectivity, a jack for my iPod (had to purchase the cord seperately, but it was easy to find on Amazon for a reasonable price), as well as great gas mileage, a sporty look and a comfortable ride with a V6 engine.
I was really excited to receive Forever Red in my Cosmo VoxBox after seeing the ads for it, but I have to say I was disappointed in the product. On first smell, after spraying, it's just too cloyingly sweet. All I get is sugar-coated pomegranate. It sort of fades into a light vanilla on the drydown, but honestly the scent is completely gone within an hour. I don't usually go for sweet scents as it is, but a "luxurious" sweet scent can be done well, ala Thierry Mugler's Angel (which is one of my all-time favorites). I usually like B&BW scents, but this is not a winner with me. I would recommend this only with reservations.
I love these masks and I always pick up a couple when I'm at Ulta. I like that the packages are one-time-use only, so it keeps the product fresh and sanitary. Also, the price point makes it easy to try all the different masks! The mud masks can be kind of a mess to wash off (I would suggest putting those on before you hop in the shower) but the peel-offs are really easy to remove.
