Free your Hair with Ever Pure!

Posted on: January 24, 2017

  

Hi Love!

Recently, I’ve been receiving so many compliments on my hair. I’ve been meaning to do an updated hair post– so, here it is. I’ve started using this new hair care system by Loreal: Ever Pure. In just a few washes I’ve noticed the amazing effects it’s had on my hair.

For many years, I’ve tried many different hair products from high end to drugstore brands you name it. My hair has been thru the it all over the years. Plus, I’ve colored my hair just about every color (except for purple, blue, pink) and my hair has seen it’s fair share of products. So, I guess it’s safe to say my hairs been fried, dyed, dull and damaged through the years. In the last couple of years, I’ve taken better care of my hair (using less heat tools, no abrasive color treatments etc….) and I’ve noticed a huge difference.  I’ve changed up my hair products too. For the most part, I’ve used salon suggested, high end hair products up. It’s only in the last 3 years or so I’ve changed things up. Ever since I discovered Loreal’s hair care products my hair has gone thru a tremendous changes and in the most amazing ways possible. Their newest hair care line is absolutely amazing and heres why.

The shampoo + conditioner moisturize your hair and leave it smelling fresh and invigorating. It’s formula combines rosemary and floral botanicals which smells incredible. Another reason that makes Loreal’s Ever Pure products so great: they’re sulfate-free, paraben-free, free of harsh salts, vegan and dye free. Both products have a rich and creamy consistency that isn’t heavy but rather it lathers on smoothly throughout your hair. This system specifically is great for color treated hair (which is what I have) and it keeps color pure for up to 4 weeks. The last time I colored my hair was back in November and up until now my color is still looking vibrant and fresh as if it was done yesterday. My hair has never looked better. It feels and looks more hydrated, soft, silky, smooth and looks oh so fabulous as you can see.

The 10 in 1 elixir is another amazing product from Loreal. All three products have done wonders for my hair. The elixir specifically helps restore hairs vitality in as little as 1 week. After using the elixir, I noticed a huge difference in my hair almost immediately. My hair has stayed healthy, reflecting my radiant hair color even though my hair was colored months ago. These are all the things its’ done for my hair and what it’s proven do to for hair in general:

1. Nourish
2. Hydrate
3. Soothe
4. Repair
5. Density
6. Smooth
7. Texture
8. Strength
9. Softness
10. Shine

Apply on to towel-dried hair and scalp in sections. Gently work into hair to evenly distribute. Do not rinse. Style as usual. My hair looks and feels healthy and fresh. I can wash my hair knowing my hair will look great after each wash. We all want to have that “after salon visit” hair ( gorgeous salon blown out hair) everyday especially after a full nights rest. But rest assure, after using Loreal’s Ever Pure products your hair will look and feel incredible. Let’s be honest, I don’t know about you, when my hair looks that good it not only makes me feel amazing but gives me an added boost in my confidence too. No matter if your hair is dry, color treated, curly, you’ll love these products just as much as I do and you’ll see what it can do you. So #freeyourhair from all your hair worries and try these life-changing products. Get the gorgeous hair you’ve always wanted that will not only look amazing but you’ll feel amazing too!! Trust me, you’ll LOVE them –you’ll thank me later.

ON WEDNESDAYS WE WEAR PINK: MY FAVES AND THE PERFECT SHADES OF PINK, CORAL AND NUDE FOR THE SUMMERTIME

Posted on: June 22, 2016

Looking for the perfect shade of Pink, Coral and Nude for the summer. Look no further, here are my fave shades of lippies for the summertime.

For me when it comes to purchasing a lipstick shade I look for:

* Killer colors and shades, something that goes well with my skin tone

* Something out of the ordinary, I LOVE to have fun with colors

* Something different from those in my collection

* Moisturizing and Hydrating products

* And if they are Matte shades, long- lasting products

* I love colors that POP

As for these beauties, these have been my go-tos for the summer months. The color Pink, blush, nude and corals has grown on me over the years and I just love how the colors look on me. Especially blush tones, they look great with my skin tone tone and I feel like the color can compliment just about anyone. Another reason to love these colors!! 🙂

 

TOM FORD SCANDOLA MOISTURECORE LIP COLOR

 

 I discovered this shade at an Exclusive VIB Rouge event for Tom Ford. And after trying out the color I just knew I had to purchase it. It’s the perfect nude with a hint of Pink and blush that adds a nice touch to your lips. Nothing to bright or overpowering. Just the right shade for something everyday or even for a night out . I would suggest wearing this lip if you want a hint of color and a pretty nude pink lip if your wearing a heavy eye make-up. It’s also a great color to wear on its own, the possibilities are endless.  This was mentioned in my favorites post, it’s a fave for a reason!! Check it out, tag me in a photo and let me know your thoughts on this perfect shade for the Summer.

The perfect shade of nude with a hint of pink for the summer. Not only is it an amazing color, it’s also lightweight and super moisturizing. And it stays and last for HOURS.

PRICE: $ 55.00

NYX EXTRA CREAMY ROUND LIPSTICK IN SHADE 626 VITAMIN

 

I found this drugstore find at Target 2 maybe 3 years ago and it’s been a fave ever since. NYX is one of my favorite brands, not to mention it’s an affordable brand. I love how versatile NYX is and how innovative they are with their products. It’s the perfect shade of coral and pink mixed together in one. I call this my party lip. I love wearing this during the summer months, it just screams SUMMER and the perfect coral pink for a daytime look or even nighttime glam. I tend to do very minimal makeup during the Summer months because in NYC it’s steamy hot and I don’t want all my make up to melt off lol. So this gives me the right amount of POP and COLOR to  brighten up my face.

CHANEL GLOSSIER GLOSS IN SHADE 297 SWEET BEIGE LEVRES SCINTILLANTES

 

I love this sheer moisturizing gloss. It’s an all time fave and I actually use it all year round. I don’t just limit it for the summer months. I love it so much I got through it fast that I’m buying it again and again. Sheer but gives you just enough color with a pop of shine if you want to try something that isn’t a lipstick. Super moisturizing and hydrating for the lips.

MAC’S LIPSTICK AA1 HALF AND HALF

 

This lipstick right here has been in my collection for YEARS! It’s the perfect nude for any occasion. I often use this in combination with the Chanel Glossier Gloss in shade 297 to give an added effect and shine to my lipS when I get all dolled up. I don’t think I could ever NOT love this shade. Some say its a nude but to me goes on like a nudey pink. It has hues of pink in it as well. But I HIGHLY recommend this shade to anyone and everyone.

BOBBI BROWN LIP COLOR IN SHADE 31 COCOA

 

This lip shade may be outside of the “pink” color shade realm but it has a hint of it and it’s a fave so I thought to add to the list. This lipstick I feel you can get away wearing it all year round, and I admit I do wear it all year round. I found this shade years ago while shopping at Sak’s Fifth Avenue with my Mom while trying to find a new lip shade for her. But when I saw this color I immediately said YASSS!! It’s a bit deeper than your average nude or pink color, possible leaning towards a maeve or brown. A beige plum brown as described by Bobbi Brown herself. To me depending on what season it may be it’ll look like a deeper tone in the Fall/Winter months and in the Spring/Summer months it’s looks more like a plum, pink shade. But when I wear this lipstick sometimes I tend to use a lighter shade underneath using either a pencil or lip shade to line or fill in my lip first then use this on top. It gives my lips a fuller look while giving off the ombre effect. I just like being creative when using make-up. Make-up is so fun to play around with, experimenting with different colors is one of my favorite thing to do. I enjoy experimenting and working with colors and make-up and creating art on my face or clients faces for many to admire.

NAR’S SATIN LIP PENCIL IN THE SHADE ISOLA BELLA

 

Now, I will admit I have a tendency to over line my lips sometimes… I have my Kylie Jenner moments.  But who doesn’t, i’m not afraid or ashamed to rock the look, and neither should you. This Satin Lip Pencil can give me the Kylie Jenner lip  giving me a pretty shade of blush pink. It compliments my skin tone and I’ve gotten a lot of compliments with this lip color. I either wear it alone or line and use one of my lipstick shades to add dimension and depth to my lip look for that particular day. But I  tend to use this on the days when I don’t wear a lot of eye make up and just want a pop of color to brighten up my face for the day. This is just great all on its own. It’s long lasting, moisturizing and hydrating for your lips.

YSL ROUGE VOLUPTE SHINE IN SHADE 15 CORAIL INTUITIVE

 

I discovered this shade just last weekend while at the Sephora store with my Mom. Sometimes when you aren’t looking for something at that moment for yourself you tend to find something that you may actually like or even love. This is what happened when I was looking for a new lipstick shade for my Mom. I was telling her about the YSL Rouge Lip shades and I wanted to get her a new shade for the summer and just in general. In process, I too found this particular coral pink shade thats SUPER hydrating, moisturizing and so pretty. The color stay isn’t as long as I would like, but the hydrating and moisturizing benefits are two pluses in my book. But the color won me over, so I was definitely a keeper.
