All abour hair brushes

The first brush I'm going to speak about is my favorite out of all of them! It's the Pink dual purpose detangling brush, this brush is incredible. First off, it's pink- which makes it that much more adorable- it's a nice travel sized brush with a mirror in the back- if your like me who always forgets her mirror at home- you can just throw this brush in your purse and not have to worry about trying to find a mirror to look at yourself in. I have relatively straight hair, not thick nor thin, and I really liked how easily this brush glided through my hair and it detangled any knots I had without pulling on my hair and damaging it. The price is $9.98

The second brush is similar to the one above expect it's square shaped and a lot bigger- good to keep at home- this brush pretty much does the same as the one above by detangling your hair without damaging it but also adds volume if used when blow drying your hair leaving it really soft & shiny (at least if your hair is straight/ wavy like mine) I really like the size, since it's bigger it detangles my hair quicker- The price is $10.98

The third brush is ceramic-infused & comes in the color orange. This brush has nylon & soft bristles which actually helps make your hair appear healthy by reducing frizz. I use this brush only when I blow dry my hair in order to add some volume to the ends by holding the brush beneath my hair when I have the blow dryer over it. This brush also has little holes which actually allows air to flow through in order to cut back your blow drying time in half which helps reducing heat damage. This brush is not meant for detangling hair- but can be used on any type of hair. The barrel isn't to big so it won't give you crazy over voluminous hair lol, very handy if your the type who like to blow dry your hair on a weekly basis. The price is $ 12.98
The fourth brush is also ceramic which allows it to heat up fast and also has holes to allow your hair to dry much quicker. It's pretty much the same size as the one above except the holes on the barrel are a little wider. The price for this one is $12.98

Further information:
Brush love offers a range of professional hair and cosmetics tools/ accessories, what I received was four different types of brushes, their Brushlab's hair tools and accessories are available at ULTA (which is convenient if you guys want to go see the products for yourself) and through there website http://www.brushlove.com (Prices are great for those on budgets)
Result may vary depending on your hair length and texture but you can simply check out the website and it guides you depending on the hair you have and what your looking for.

Let me know in the comments if any of you guys have tried these brushes or will be purchasing them- Ps. The shipping is super fast & nicely packaged =)

Disclaimer: These products were sent to me by the company however, before agreeing on reviewing them I stated I would ONLY review them if I HONESTLY liked them.

New moon thoughts


Where do I start, I've been waiting for this movie to come out since I saw Twilight last year a week after it came out. It's funny because I had never heard of Twilight until Nov.28th that my boyfriend took me to the movies so that at midnight he would be the first to say happy birthday, being that my birthday is November 29th, he said it during the movie...anyways, when I first saw the commercial for this movie I figured it was a cheesy teen movie, so when my boyfriend suggested watching it I was skeptical but there was nothing good out around that time so I said ehh, sure why not. Being that am a sucker for love stories I fell in love with the movie so much that the next day I went and purchased the New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking dawn. As I began to read them I couldn't stop, I read them all in a 2 weeks period tops and eagerly anticipated New Moon. As November began I started getting all exciting again hearing all the hype about this movie and my boyfriend surprised me buying advanced tickets for Friday the day it came out...All I can say now is this movie was amazing, seriously way better than the first one however, I did feel they cut out a lot of parts as far as explaining things thoroughly , but that's okay because the books were way better. Overall the experience was great the movie was packed and all the girls screamed when Jacob took his shirt off...lol

Makeup storage on the run..




I purchased this makeup bag at a store called Daffy's in Manhattan, It's similar to a TJMaxx. They have a variety of clothes, bags, shoes, accessories etc from different stores that send their "out of style" stuff to these stores because they need to make room for new stuff. Anyways, I'm currently just doing makeup on family & friends so I don't need a train case yet but I do need something to hold my makeup when I go sleep over my boyfriends house, friends house or whenever a friend needs a quick look done. In my bag I don't throw in everything I own, I simply take what I know I'll need for that friend or what I need for the weekend at my boyfriends. The brand is called Designer Guild and the original price was I think $29.99 or something crazy like that but thanks to these lovely stores it was on sale for $8.99!

Urban Decay primer potion



Okay, so where do I start off! I freaking love my UDPP it's amazing. I personally have very oily lids and my eyeshadows tend to crease on me if I don't apply this or my mac paintpot but I have to say this one is my favorite because even though it has a cream color to it when you apply it to your lid it goes on clear and instantly mattifys (I think this is misspelled) your lids! Even when I'm lazy I apply this to control the oils of my lids & just curl my eyelashes. However, the only problem I and a million other people have out there is that although the packaging is gorgeous, it has an extremely inconvenient shape that along with the applicator doesn't allow to get get FULL use of the entire product. When I believed my UDPP was finished, I took a knife and carefully cut through the middle of it and to my surprise there was like still so much product left inside!

Perfect red lips


Although applying lip liner and lipstick may seem like one of the easiest things in the makeup world, there are still a lot of beginners out there that I think would find this very helpful. The reason why I apply lip liner first it's to give definition to the shape of my lips so when I then fill the remainder of my lips with lipstick it makes it easier because I have an outline to work with.

Wavy hair tutorial


I'm obviously not and expert at hair tutorials, but just kind of playing around with my curling iron that I barely use, came up with this random yet cute waves. I'm really a lazy person when it comes to doing things to my hair so yea this isn't going to be anything like OMG! but it's something you can try if you like it.

Random/Update

Hey everyone, sorry I've been missing in action but I'm currently taking a summer course on developmental psychology quite interesting but I have three 5-6 page papers due all in one month blah. I'm also in the process of a lot of paper work for Hunter College; which I will be attending for the fall semester as a Junior. Anyways, I purchased yet another bottle of the sublime self tanner by L'oreal that i love so much and this time they had the spray bottle kind instead of the gel or lotion, so i tried it out and it's more convenient than the because you don't really need to touch the product and get it allover your hands but since your spraying yourself and it's basically goes on clear you have to be careful how much you actually apply like an idiot I applied way to much on my feet and they look darker than my entire body. So yea, I'm still weighing 130 but on occasions I will gain a pound than lose it again etc. that's why I really don't make any of those weight update videos. I also want to apologize because I know in some of my videos you can clearly see my acne and I know for a fact it may gross some of you guys out but I really can't do anything about it guys =/ trust me I'm a pretty confident chick besides when it comes to my face. I've been struggling with acne issues since puberty hit me and it's something I have no control over no matter how many products i buy and try and all the money that I've put into my skin because it hereditary my father, grandfather, brother and mother all had acne and it didn't go away until like 21 years old and I'm 19 will be 20 in November. The only thing that completely made my face clear were these acne laser treatments but there $250.00 a session and I usually need 6-8 session to clear my face up entirely which seems impossible at this moment because my mother is unemployed and so I am right now so the only income is her unemployment check which is used to pay rent. Anyways, sorry for babbling on just felt like sharing you guys hope you understand bye x0x0

How to apply liquid eyeliner

I posted this video for a while now on youtube and I'm just getting around to post it on my blog. I had totally forgotten about it, I know many of you know how to apply liquid eyeliner but for the those of you who are just starting with making or are just new to using liquid liner hopes this helps =). The one I'm using is the L'oreal Telescopic precision tip ( I have a review on it on here) which works great but my favorite now is my MAC 'boot black' liquid eyeliner.
