Review: Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream

I will be doing a review on this Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream that I received in my Influenster Beauty Blogger Voxbox. This is a nicely sized sample size! You get 1.5 fl oz in this and I believe a full sized product has 4 fl oz so that's pretty good. As soon as I opened my Voxbox I could smell something and I started smelling everything and guess what?! It was this hair cream! You could smell the product through the tube! So onto the rest of the review!

Pros: Strong smell, easily accessible, inexpensive, nice texture

Cons: Strong smell

Conclusion: I liked this product. It did work for my hair but not as much as I would have liked. Reason being that I have extremely frizzy/damaged ends/hair. The top of my head and the front part of my hair (towards my face) did really good, but for some horrible reason the back of my head has really coarse hair and it was not having any of this product! For the parts that did want to work with it, it went awesome though! It does say to saturate your hair and I did it but it felt like it weighed my hair down. I liked the smell, but I think that to some people it could be a big turn off from this product. It smells kind of like grapes, maybe because it contains grapeseed, they may have wanted it to smell like grapes considering the ingredients. I did like this product but not that much for the state that my hair is in. I think that for people with more manageable, less frizzy hair this would work better. You can find the full sized product (4 fl oz) at Walmart for about $6. At my Walmart however I found it for $4 and some change, almost $5. I recommend this to people but it could be a hit or miss for you. 

Thank you for reading! 

Review: Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin

I will be reviewing another item from the Influenster Beauty Blogger Voxbox! These are the Goody Spin Pins which I was so excited to get in the Voxbox because I had been wanting to try them so bad and I finally got to thanks to Influenster and Goody! Yay! You can find these Spin Pins at any drugstore well really almost any store that sells hair products! They retail for $7.29 give or take. 

Pros: Comfortable, easy to use, easily accessible, affordable, convenient, easy to store

Cons: Price

Conclusion: I loved these pins for all of the Pros. They are so comfortable to use you can't even tell you are using them! They are also really easy to use, all you do is spin them in and to take out you spin them out. Couldn't get much simpler right? Even though they are simple to use, they do hold your style together so don't worry about that. Like I said you can find them anywhere really. The price for me though is a little bit too much considering you only get two pins. I mean all they really do is spin in to hold your style, I don't think they should be that much but they work good so you are not getting ripped off in that sense. They are also easy to store and to carry around. Just throw them in your makeup bag or purse or clutch and you are ready to go! I recommend them!

Thank you for reading! 

Review: Vitabath Fragrance Mist in Luscious Lemon Creme

I have a review for you guys today regarding the Vitabath Fragrance Mist that I received in my Influenster Beauty Blogger Voxbox. I'm pretty sure most of you guys have heard of Influenster. It's a site to which you can request and invitation and you fill out reviews, surveys and all sorts of stuff. If you do good posting things such as on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest etc you can unlock badges and you can get selected to receive a Voxbox which includes many full-sized and generously sized sample-sized products for you to review. This Vitabath spray is FULL SIZED!! How awesome huh?! Oh and did I mention you get these products for free? Yup. Free. The best word in the English dictionary! :) So onto the pros, cons and my final conclusion.

Pros: Awesome smell, nice packaging, smell lasts a while, inexpensive

Cons: Not readily available

Conclusion: I love the smell and the packaging. The smell lasts a while but like any other body sprays it does wear off after a while. It is fairly inexpensive on their site $9.99 for an 8 oz which is the size I got in my Voxbox. It is a Canadian brand so the only place I do know of ordering it is offline, which could be a downside. I love this smell and maybe I will order some more off their site sometime. I recommend these body sprays. If you like sweet smells I recommend this one! It smells amazing!


Thank you guys so much for reading!

Weekend Haul!

Ok so this weekend wasn't that exciting, because number one I am waiting for Cyber Monday to order some stuff and I already have some stuff in the mail sooo I just got a few things! 

First up Family Dollar:
I went to a thrift store with my mom on Saturday I believe in another town and there is a Family Dollar there so we went to go check it out and I found this little Color Workshop (I think) set for only $1! So I thought why not? Well when I got home I opened it (after pics of course!) and was surprised. First off the mascara is BLUE! Blue. yup. blue. Which is eh whatever. Then I moved onto the shadows which I was like WTH?! I mean it was a dollar but the eyeshadows are in in this flimsy little package which you would expect some chocolates or something lol I was like WOW. Then I swatched them with my finger and :( yup that's all I can say. But I was like no maybe these have more to them than this crappy payoff so I put a bit of primer on my hand and I took a flat shader brush and then swatched them and I was pleasantly surprised. Not the best I can tell you that much but not that bad. So I mean you get what you pay for but they're alright. 

Blue Mascara :D
I also got another LA Colors 5 pan palette. I had gone to a Family Dollar in a town about an hour from me and had seen this palette and had wanted it but didn't get it, so this time I was like eh what the heck and picked it up. It was $1.50 and it's gorgeous! It's in the color Waterworld. And that is exactly what it is, beautiful greens, blues and turquoise colors! And if you have ever tried LA Colors eyeshadows you know their pigmentation is the bomb! I'm glad I ended picking it up.

 Next I went to Dollar Tree:
I didn't find much there like always :/ I just got some cotton balls and I got this LA Colors blush which was really pretty and I didn't have it. It is in the color Spice and of course it was only a dollar. I like this color. It's pretty and shimmery and it has alright color payoff. I did swatch it only on my hand so maybe it will look better on my face (hopefully :))

And last but not least is WALMART!:
Ok So they recently released their 55 new shades which I still have to do a weekend haul on them. But they also released a Holiday Nails display which had some gorgeous colors and GLITTERS! I picked up the most unique and well pretty colors. They retail for $1.97 and they were on the edge of the wall that has the Christmas gift sets if that helps any :) 

L-R: Five-Some, Playtime, Sleigh Ride, Sugar Cookie and Twist & Shout

L-R: Kissing Cupid, Cherries On Top, All Nighter, Red Hot Mama & Sweet-Tart

L-R: Gift Of Gold, The Secret Is Out! & Party Hard
 I hope you guys enjoyed this haul and you find anything that you liked here! Have a Happy Thanksgiving if I don't get around to posting something today later or tomorrow!
