If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

L’Oreal Paris EverCreme Sulfate-Free Moisture System

Posted on by daneen in Conditioner, Featured, Hair, Hair Styling, Shampoo | 2 Comments

LOreal Paris EverCreme LOreal Paris EverCreme Sulfate Free Moisture SystemBecause my hair is overprocessed, dry and damaged, I only wash it about once a week. Which means that when I “do” it, I better do it right – or else my hair will look jacked for the next seven days. Forget a bad hair day; it’s more like a bad hair week for me.

So when I receive hair product samples to review, I’m usually nervous – especially if they’re not from a brand I normally use (e.g., Moroccanoil, Ojon, Phyto, Fekkai, Leonor Greyl). I’m also a hair product snob and I don’t typically shop at mass market retailers for those items. So when a box showed up on my doorstep, filled with the new L’Oreal Paris EverCreme Sulfate-Free Moisture System, I almost dismissed the products altogether and gave them to my friend, Alyssa, to review.

Polished: L’Oreal He Red My Mind + China Glaze Electrify

Posted on by daneen in Featured, Nail Polish, Nails, Polished | Leave a comment

loreal colour riche he red my mind Polished: LOreal He Red My Mind + China Glaze ElectrifyL’Oreal Paris recently redesigned all of their cosmetics packaging, and their Colour Riche nail polishes now reside in sleek glass and gold containers.

I was drawn to He Red My Mind, billed as a metallic Valentine Red. This color went on thinly, and did not have the best coverage. A second coat covered the flaws in the first, but then did not dry evenly. I like the color, though, a bright red with pink undertones and a slight gold sheen.

I then put a layer of glitter over the red. I chose Electrify, from the China Glaze Capitol Colors Collection - inspired by The Hunger Games. As a fan of the books, I was really looking forward to what China Glaze would come up with to accurately represent the Districts. A quick plot point without any spoilers – there are 12 Districts in Panem, the world in which The Hunger Games take place. Each of these Districts has a specialty, like fishing, agriculture, or technology. CONTINUE READING
