ESSIE ADDITIONS


While I was in New York I purchased two colors from Essie that i've been wanting for a long time. I always get Essie and Opi from my local flea market because they sell them for $5 each! Woop woop! 

I picked up Splash of Grenadine, a purpley pink that's perfect for summer and spring, and Blanc, which is a very very white polish. Both look amazing with a tan and i'm definitely pleased to have added these to my collection.

What's your favorite Essie nail polish?

REVIEW: OGX RENEWING ARGAN OIL HAIRSPRAY


My go to hairspray for a long time now has been the Loreal Elnett Unscented, but after going to two different drugstores trying to find it (I later found it at Target by the way) I decided on trying something new. I picked up the OGX Renewing Argan Oil Elevated Finish Spray and although my thoughts are mixed, they are mostly positive.

The biggest plus of this hairspray is that I found that it held my curls all day long, which was much needed for a wedding last weekend. The negative is that it makes the curls a tad hard BUT it's not noticeable unless touched. I think this actually holds better than my Loreal hairspray but because I like more natural, effortless curls...I'll stick with my Loreal hairspray next time.

This wasn't disappointing at all but at the same time--it wasn't amazing.

MAC ADDITIONS


Building up my makeup artist kit is my top priority at the moment, and I knew i'd have to finally cave and get two products from MAC that i've been wanting for the longest time. I've seen MAC's Soft and Gentle highlighter and Peaches blush on so many makeup artist websites that I knew they would be worth the money and I am so happy I got them!

Soft and Gentle is a beautiful golden highlight that looks super glittery in the pan but looks luminous and lovely on the skin. It looks amazing in photos and gives you an amazing glow!

Peaches is a shade that works well on so many skin tones. It's a (surprise surprise) peachy pink matte blush that is perfect for summer, but I know will work well all year round as well.

REVIEW: ANASTASIA DIPBROW POMADE


Every time I make a trip to visit family in New York, I always stock up on makeup thats cheaper in the states than in Canada. The Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade goes for $26 at Sephora in Canada...in the states--$18. Much better! So I decided to pick it up in the shade dark brown. I've been absolutely loving it. The tiniest amount goes a long way, and the shade works well with my medium brown hair as well as my sister's dark brown hair. 

The waterproof formula is a huge plus, and the lasting power is amazing. Overall i'd say this was entirely worth the money--seeing as it will last me a very long time.

HAIR VITAMINS...DO THEY WORK?



After watching a youtube video from Huda Beauty about tips for growing your hair long, I learned about a hair growth vitamin other than Biotin that helps speed up the hair growth process. I've been taking Biotin for about over a year now, and while I do find that it helps with skin and hair, I wanted to try this amazing vitamin from GNC that Huda was talking about.

The vitamin is called GNC's Womens Ultra Nourish-Hair and the dosage is two LARGE pills a day. These pills are pretty freaking massive, and I dont like the taste/smell of them. But only after a few weeks of taking them I definitely noticed a great difference. My hair for sure grew a few inches within a few weeks, and for me that definitely outweighs the size of the pill.

What do you recommend for growing your hair long?
