Head & Shoulders Volume Boost Conditioner has a lot of pros but in my case a few cons as well!! I've been fighting the battle of dry itchy sore scalp for many many years!! I've tried many items on the market from low end to very high. Ive had some great results and some not so good ones as well! Influenster sent me this particular conditioner to try along with the Head & Shoulders Volume Boost Shampoo ( check out my review on that as well). I Will say that I don't come across many conditioners targeted for scalp care so I was excited to try this out. As far as performance goes I sadly don't see much of an improvement in the softness of my hair. I feel with my texture there just isn't enough moisture in this conditioner. However when used along with the shampoo I feel it benefits my scalp a bit better, to me it's more of a booster as far as keeping the scalp in check an extra barrier to help fight dry sore flaky scalp!! It's recommended use is 2 times per week rather then daily which I find is enough!! I usually use a deep conditioner mask once a week and sleep in it as I stated above my hair itself is quite dry!! I find this conditioner to add a bit of volume like stated on the package when used along with the shampoo as well!! I did try using it another way by putting it on dry hair for about 20 minutes then shampooing after, but I still found it not to be enough for my hair itself! I do feel it's color safe as I've noticed no fading at all!! Overall I think it's an okay product but find that the shampoo alone does a better job of leaving my hair more softer and moisturized. I feel this is more of a SCALP only conditioner rather then for the hair itself!! Which is beneficial. It smells quite nice and feminine which I do appreciate!!!
I'VE struggled with dry scalp horrible itching and flakes for years. Almost every product out there I've tried, some work and some make it worse. Influenster sent me this particular shampoo to try out! I've tried head & shoulders many times in the past but not in the last few years. Before I felt it made my hair to dry and was harsh on my color treated locks!! However trying it again in the Volume Boost formula was quite a nice surprise!! 1st off this stuff gives a mean lather, I personally prefer to apply to my hair 1st thing in the shower and massage it completely into my scalp! I leave it on my hair while I finish my shower routine. As a last step I rinse with cool water and I can immediately feel the softness and volume come to life in my hair!! I love the fact that it has a feminine smell as opposed to some other head & shoulders formulas ( to me they smell to masculine and medicinal). This formula makes my hair super soft and easy to brush leaving behind zero tangles which also surprised me being that I have super long hair!! As for color safe as the product claims I believe it to be true, I've been using this for almost 2 weeks every time I shampoo my color is still vibrant. Also I only air dry I never use a blow dryer and I feel my hair drys quicker as well. My hair looks and smells clean for up to 3 days without any itching or excess flakes!! I'm not a fan of Sulfates in my hair products and tend to use sulfate free as much as I can. I think if head & shoulders could come out with a sulfate free version down the line that would be amazing!!! Overall I'm quite impressed with the performance of this shampoo👍👍👍
Sugarpill cosmetics has been a major game changer for me!! When I 1st discovered Sugarpill the company was around 2 years old, I logged on to there site sugarpill.net and fell in LOVE!!!😍😍 I will never forget the 1st time I saw the shade Love+ a matte vibrant red and Asylum a loose shadow pigment in the most UNIQUE duochrome Red!!! I've yet to find anything like it to this day!! Those were my 1st 2 products I purchased!!! Every shadow and pigment I've ever gotten from Sugarpill is unbelievable for example the Red pressed shadow i talked about above is 100% intense red the most pigmented red I've ever seen and used!!! Dollypop is another shade that stands out as well it's a matte hot pink and when I say pigment i mean pigment!!! All of these shadows are made to the highest standards of performance!!! In my opinion Sugarpill blows all other brands away with one swipe of your brush!! If you are looking for unique one of a kind bright happy stunning colors Sugarpill is a one stop shop👏👏👏 The owner takes pride in making quality products which I appreciate, there are other Indie brands out there that mass release less then standard products just because, Sugarpill however only releases a few new items a year!! I make sure I buy every new eye product that comes out!!! This is one of those brands that once you try it you fall in love💕💕 Candy crush a shimmer aqua 1st came out in a palette they released called Sparkle Baby I'm glad that they decided to take all there L.E palette shades and make them available in a single pro pans!! Just like the mattes the shimmers performance is also AMAZING!! They are soft and buttery yet filled with long lasting color!!! I thought I would share my collection to show you just how much this brand means to me💓💓💓
1st off let me start off by saying I received this Garnier hair color courtesy of influencer for testing purposes!!🙆🙆🙆 Garner has always been my choice for at home hair color for the last few years or so. I love the fact that Garnier hair color contains more natural ingredients and does not smell nearly as harsh or burn my scalp like other at-home hair dyes! Since my early early 20s 😢😢 I've had gray hair that of course has continued to get worse with age. If I let my natural hair grow out I'm probably over 70% gray!!! I stopped using the salon years ago because I have long thick hair past my bottom and it became to pricey!! I also was a blond for almost 15 years until I decided to make the switch to at home hair color!! I stay between black or dark burgundy for the last 6 years or so! I'm so glad Garnier Nutrisse decided to make an ultra coverage at home hair color, I received the shade black sesame #200!! Let me tell you I'm quite impressed with the results! Not only do I get the same Garnier formula I've grown to love so much over the years but now it guarantees even more gray hair coverage🙆🙆 I have patches of hair that are highly resistant to hair dye even when using my normal Garnier, However this formula GOT THEM!! The color itself is a beautiful soft black the formula is super comfortable to use!! I have a disease that causes me to have a horrible dry scalp with sores that become very irritated and painful!! Garnier Nutrisse hair dye does not flare up my scalp issues, it's the only at home hair dye on the market that does not cause my scalp to flare up!! It rinses out clean and leaves my hair super soft and shiny!! The application of darker hair color can be a bit messy so I suggest using either a bit of conditioner or Vaseline around your hair line and ear area!! Overall the quality of Garnier can't be beat and now with a stronger formula that contains Ultra coverage I will struggle less with covering the few strays of Grey that are left over!!! My only suggestion and this goes for ANY at home hair dye is that I wish Garnier especially since it's my favorite would make a bigger bottle for people with extremely long hair like I have!! That would eliminate the frustration when you do go to buy at home hair dye and they only have one box of your shade!!!! Garnier continues to make great affordable hair products yet again👏👏 This will now be my new formula!!!
Madam cj walker has quickly become my most favorite brand of haircare products!!! Everything I've used from this company has been a hit!! I have several autoimmune diseases and some of the side effects have caused my scalp to become a wreck😢😢 My scalp feels like it's on fire most of the time NOT to mention the severe dry patches and horrible itch that comes along with it!! What I've found is that the less chemical i put in my hair the better my scalp feels overall!!!! Nothing fixes it 100% but Madam cj walker products make a huge difference!!! This brand is 100% organic which I love as well as cruelty free🤗 How I use this Deep conditioning mask is as follows: The directions suggest using it on wet just shampooed hair leaving it on for 15 minutes!! However once a week I apply it to my hair when it's dry, I start by massaging it into my scalp then continue all the way down to my ends. For reference I have long thick hair past my bottom! After massaging it completely through my hair I put it up in a light loose bun and use it more as a sleeping mask for my hair!! When I wake up my hair feels super silky and my scalp is soothed!! I take a shower wet my hair massage and rinse!! I do not wash after!!! The result is AMAZING and it smells wonderful as all Madam cj walker products do!! The container is 6 ozs and a little goes a long way, for my length I dip my fingers in the container a total of 2 times per use!! This along with a few other products have helped me maintain healthy hair despite my disease!!! I definitely recommend this brand as always some companies claim to have amazing results ONLY to do nothing!!! Madam cj walker however is the real deal!! I stand by this line 100%🙆🙆🙆
Review for: Winky Lux Kitten Palette - No Color more...
I received this palette in my November Boxycharm although I probably would never by this palette on my own I found it to be quite nice!! This palette comes with 4 matte shades and 5 shimmery/Holographic shades!!! The matte shades are nothing to write home about!! Cheshire the matte burgandy is a bit patchy but eventually blends out okay after a few good strokes in the crease!! The other 3 mattes are just your average boring Matte colors but are good if you don't have alot of transition shades in your personal stash!! The color that really suprises me the most in this palette is the blue icy shimmer shade called 9 Lives! Normally I do not like nor rarely ever use a blue toned shadow, blues in general I just don't like however this blue slays!!!😍 I use chickuodo brushes and they tend to make my shadow application so much easier, my brush picked this up and applied it to my lid beautifully with no fallout or patchy spots!!! Another stand out shade is called Holographic it has a light beautiful pink blue shift that looks AMAZING on the brow bone!! Overall the quality of this palette is very good!! I know it retails for 25$ which I don't think is terrible!! This brand in my opinion performs way better then alot of brands like say colourpop etc!! Overall other then struggling a bit with the Mattes I feel you can get alot of unique looks with this palette!!! As for the packaging it's adorable but kinda reminds me of [product:sugarpill-cosmetics-] packaging!!! I used the arrows to point to the 2 stand out shades I talked about above🤗🤗
This palette is just exquisite!!! I've become a large huda beauty fan since the moment I laid my chickuodo brushes in The Huda Beauty Textured Eyeshadows Palette Rose Gold Edition and I've been obsessed with the brand ever since!! A few reasons why I love Huda so much is because she pushes the normal the safe and the standard!!! Everything she comes up with is exciting vibrant and unique!! I feel like a kid at Christmas Every time Huda releases a palette🤶🎅 When I saw these obsession palettes i couldn't wait for them to launch!!! Now i know these appear tiny but Hudas large pan palettes contain 18 shadows and these little babies contain 9 shadows that at the same pan size as her bigger palettes!!! So 27$ is a steal for these!! The warm brown obsession palette is not your "normal safe" or "boring" brown shadow palette that most brands would put out!! This baby is fire🙆🙆 Stunning fall toned colors it's as if the fall leaves blew all together and formed a palette🍁🍂 Every single shade performs AMAZING they are buttery silky and super pigmented!! In this palette there are 9 creamy mattes from a deep Carmel to a light Siena, a hot chocolate brown brick red and burgandy browns!! To top it all off there is one Metallic Gold that just melts everything together!!! Carmel latte with glitter sprinkles is another way to describe this beauty☕☕ You can create endless looks with this one tiny palette, all the shadows and colors blend together like a dream!! You have crease shades lid shades and even a cream shade for the brow bone!!!! If browns were put together like this I never would of steered away from them years ago!! Huda created yet another unbelievable palette yet again!! Her take on Brown's have completely brought the color back to life for me!!! Loves I'm telling you do not pass this one up it's worth GOLD!! Literally!!😍😍😍👏👏👏
I was super excited when I saw a sneak peek of the Mac cosmetics "Girls" palettes the beginning of this year!! I waited months and months for these to come out!! Mischief Minx was the one of 6 I was most interested in so the day these palettes launched I bought it asap!! I must say the packaging is adorable this one is a cheetah print!! Each palette is packaged unique according to there color story love the idea!! I was also sparked by the fact that Mac added and updated there eyeshadow formulas as well! When the palette arrived I couldn't wait to use it, the setup inside is as unique as the package itself and a bonus a large sized color themed highlighter is also included as well!! Now for the shadows themselves 😕😕 I was honestly so disappointed by the performance of these😢 The shades JUST don't wow me or perform as well as I had expected!! The way they look in the pan would give most people high hopes🙌🙌 especially the 1st 4 shimmery metallic shades but when used on the eye wet or dry even with my AMAZING chickuodo brushes they are all just blah!! I expected way more pigment especially from Mac, when using these shades together ( the 1st 4 ) not the mattes they just kinda all blend like you are using just one maybe 2 colors max!!! I feel they are just way to similar to each other with the exception of the gold foiled color!!! That shade was a big miss as well, in the pan it's a shade that looks like it would give off major pop however that shade even wet just applies like a soft wash😕 The mattes well there is HONESTLY nothing special at all about them!! You also have to use another palette in conjunction with this one because none of these are transitional!!! The one item in this palette that I do really like is the highlighter I feel that was the only Star of this palette!! It is smooth with no chunky glitter pieces and leaves you with a beautiful peachy gold duo chrome glow that can either be subtle or intense if built up!!!🦋🦋 Overall Mac missed the mark with the shadows, this year Mac has been slacking in 2017 I've been very underwhelmed with them this year!! Then again every major brand has a flop or a not so good year!!! I'm still Mac obsessed don't get me wrong!! I'm just glad I didn't buy any of the other 5 palettes in this lineup!!! On a side note look how beautiful they look in the pan!!! It gave me such high hopes*😢😕
Omg I'm screaming 😲😲 Due to my obsession for this palette!!! 1st off let me start by saying Huda has completely blown me away this year with every single product she put out!!! This is my FAVORITE brand of 2017!!! Don't let the size of this palette fool you it is smaller then Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette and Huda Beauty Textured Eyeshadows Palette Rose Gold Edition but those palettes contain 18 shadows, these however contain 9 which are exactly the same size of the shadow pans in the bigger palettes!! I wanted to stress that also none of the shades in the Mauve Obsessions palette are repeated from the other Huda palettes, so each shade is brand new!!! Now On to these stunning colors😍😍 I'm in love 100% There is not a single shade in this palette I will not use!!! All these colors take my breath away😢😢 Mauves and especially Reds I can't seem to get enough of!! In this palette there is one shade in particular that I feel is the most unique shade of red I've ever used, It reminds me of deep red cherries plus it's matte and applies like butter, it makes for a perfect lid color that is so unique and stand out!! Another shade that has my heart is a mauve red based matte that makes my eyes pop like crazy!! The shimmers are GEORGIOUS as well with intense color payoff!! For the shimmers I find them easy to apply with my finger in a patting motion or with MAKE UP FOR EVER Silicone Applicator - 224 which applies shimmers even better then your fingers!!! Overall I can't stress enough my love for this palette!! It also goes beautifully with all of hudas other palettes!! In my opinion there is nothing but amazing quality product in this palette not ONE problematic shade, the performance is just superb!! Huda created a unbelievable palette yet again her colors and textures are so unique!! I hope Huda continues to blow the beauty industry away in 2018!!!👏👏👏 * For reference the 2 shades i talked about above are 2nd row last shade and 3rd row last shade* The only thing is these shades do not have names!! Also if you own more then one of hudas obsession palettes they are magnetic and stack PERFECTLY on top of each other🙌🙌 BLOWN AWAY🍃🍃
