I mentioned having problems with dullness in my hair recently, so I thought a post about some solution might be of use to any of my readers who despise those Pantene ads where Laetitia Casta’s hair looks like a big brunette ribbon of glossiness.
Unfortunately, I have to tell you that it’s your fault your hair looks like dishwater. Too much heat styling (of which I am also guilty) causes dullness due to the loss of moisture. So if you must blow dry every time you shampoo, or perhaps you’re in permanent love with your flat iron (this means you!) – lay off. It’s not helping!
Recently I decided to give L’Oreal’s HIP Cream Eyeliner a try. Combine the cute curious little cream-liner pot with the “Buy one, get one free” sign flashing before my eyes, and it’s a done deal.
At first, I was kind of hesitant when I saw the slant tip applicator brush it came with. I am a liquid liner devotee, and cream is still fairly new to me. I was in total shock at how easily it just glided on, and in a perfect line! Not only that, but the color (Black 905) was bold (guess that’s why they call it High Intensity Pigments) and didn’t smudge at all!
Do you ever think some advertisements should be illegal? I don’t think it’s very fair that I walk into the mall and see a glistening, svelte Heidi Klum half-naked next to a bra on sale. It’s misleading, since I definitely won’t look like Heidi Klum after squeezing myself into some clearance lingerie.
I felt the same way at the drugstore looking at the photo next to Revlon’s Limited Edition Sugar Sugar Lip Topping. These Laetitia Casta-like lips stared back at me, frosted and shimmering with a delightful light pink, and I had the cogent thought: “That is absolutely not what this will look like.” Still, 50% off lured me in (another clue it’s probably not that great) and I grabbed this in both Snowflake (white) and Pixie Plum (pink).
Smoky eyes are a big hit right now, and everyone wants to know how to get the sexy effect without looking like you slept in your makeup. Enter this limited edition product from Revlon, one of my drugstore purchases this weekend. (See how much money I spend on helping you guys out? I’m so awesome.) All I could think about the whole time was: “You’re thinkin’ up your white lies, and puttin’ on your bedroom eyes”…ah, REO Speedwagon. You touch my life in so many ways.
I often ignore the directions, but the packaging gave a helpful tip: “Tap applicator to remove excess.” Why do I never listen?
