It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In Product

Anyone who has long hair will understand will understand me when I say that my hair is pretty hard to manage. Although I'm able to wear my hair completely naturally with no heat styling, it takes ages to dry with or without a hair dryer and requires lots of moisture on the ends, but becomes incredibly greasy at the roots. In an attempt to keep my hair balanced and feeling fresh, I shampoo my roots every day. As a result, I have to make an extra effort to keep the ends of my hair moisturized. 

I had heard lots of great things about It's a 10's Miracle Leave-In Product and decided to purchase this small size to try it out. 

My Favorite Real Techniques Brush

Have you ever marveled over an item in your stash, wondering what it was you used when you didn't own it? I found myself staring at my Real Techniques Setting Brush a few days ago and wondering just how I managed to apply a seamless layer of under eye concealer without it. And to be honest, it's quite possible that I didn't!

My Favorite Mac Brushes

Before I had ever learned about Real Techniques or Sigma brushes, I had already started my own little collection of Mac brushes. Although both of those brands have high quality brushes at a lower price point, I still have a certain affinity for my 217 and 239, which were my first ever makeup brushes. Although Mac is not necessarily my favorite brand or the best in the beauty world, whenever I'm feeling a little nostalgic for the days when I thought that bright purple eyeshadow was right for every occasion, I have a poke around my local Mac counter.

For anyone interested in purchasing brushes from Mac, here are the ones that I'd recommend most highly.

Marc Jacobs Lip Vinyl in Boom Boom

You know how I said that I was going to step outside of my box as far as lip colors go? I resumed carrying out that promise to myself after I threw this one in the shopping cart. I won't try to pull the 'It's different, I swear!' card... I know that my nose would grow.

Dr. Jart Water-Max Sleeping Mask Review

Sleeping is one of my most favorite hobbies - I mean, I do it for about 7 hours every night and can never get enough of it. I guess it makes sense, then, that some of my favorite products are the moisturizers and serums I pile on at night. Since I don't have a lot of products that are marketed as targeted nighttime treatments in my current ritual, I was able to justify the purchase of Dr. Jart's Water-Max Sleeping Mask, which I had my eye on for quite a while. It was definitely worth the wait... and the cash.
