Valentine's Day is coming up soon ladies, do you have an idea what to wear yet? Check out the Polyvore outfits as well that we matched with our looks too!

January2014 Favorites

I hope the first month of 2014 for all of you went well! I don't want to say how the month went fast but I am actually happy it did since I've had enough of this freezing temperatures! I love the snow but I also wish it melts the next day or two and not stay, and leave nasty slush on the curb! 
Let's just say I am tired of wearing snow boots and puffy jackets. 
Anywho! Enough whining and onto the subject of this post! My monthly favorite products!!!

Review: NYX Cosmetics Butter Lipsticks

NYX Cosmetics recently released a new line of lip products this year called Butter Lipsticks. 
NYX Cosmetics has described these lip products as having:
"The unique texture seems to melt onto the lips, giving full, yet lightweight coverage with a luxurious satin finish."

NyxCosmetics.com have 21 different shades of these Butter Lipsticks. I purchased mine from the Ulta's website for $5.99 each. During that week though they also had a NYX sale of buy one, get one 50% off on these so I bought two to try them out.

review: Stila Best of Kitten Set from Sephora

"Shimmer, dazzle, and glow on the go with this best-of set that comes with its own festive cosmetic pouch for the holidays and beyond." 

I bought this set during the Sephora Holiday Sale + 20% off coupon that time. This set is unfortunately not available anymore on their website but if there's one product from here you are interested to try, they are all still sold individually.

Review: Vibrance Vitamins for Hair Growth

Powered by Brandbacker

I have never really taken any supplements for my hair and when I saw Brandbacker was offering this I went ahead and jumped on the opportunity! Before I do tell you more about this product I just want to give you a little bit info on my hair situation.
  • I have pretty long hair already, almost up to my waist!
  • I have not colored or done any highlights or any treatment to it for the last 2-3 years.
  • I only get my hair trimmed once a year because I am lazy to go to a salon.
  • A few split ends which I trim myself.
  • Frizzy when I don't put on some argan oil.
  • I do have a dry scalp aka dandruff.
  • I noticed as the weather was getting cold my hair was starting to feel brittle. Breaking easily.
  • Even after using a hair mask once a week and argan oil, I still had brittle hair and dry scalp.
What made me go try out this sample? Well here are some information on their Amazon listing:

  • Natural Herbal Extracts & Drug-Free Ingredients Researched to Promote Faster and Healthier Hair Growth
  • Extra Strength Pure Formulation Includes OptiMSM & 37 Vitamins, Minerals, and Herbs for Hair Strengthening Nutritional Support

Make-Up Brush Basics

Before I posted this picture of my just washed make-up brushes on Instagram, my Sis had asked me weeks ago to write a post on what make-up brushes do one girl need, and I am just getting around to it now *Sorry Sis!* but I thought what a way to start the year by writing a post on the 
Make-up Brush Basics according to Miss FiveTwo

disclaimer: I am in no way a make-up professional to know what kind of makeup brushes do one need in their makeup collection. I am just sharing my opinion here. Every girl has it's own rights to own as many brushes as they wish. This is just what I think what one can start with.
