New goodies!

70

I bought some new stuff from Ulta the other day, so I figured I would make a post and let you guys know my thoughts about each of these products.

Pacifica Salty Waves Spray
I’ve liked most Pacifica products that I’ve tried, so I was excited to try this. Unfortunately this spray doesn’t seem to do much of anything for me. The only good thing I can say about it is that it helps give your hair some volume so it isn’t laying so flat, and it doesn’t leave your hair feeling crunchy or gross. However, it did not give my hair waves of any kind. I tried this spray on damp hair and then blow drying, I tried it on dry hair, and I tried it on soaking wet hair and let it dry naturally without brushing. No matter what I did, my hair was still just as straight as it always is. If you’re wondering about the smell, it’s a very mild scent. I get a slight whiff of banana when I spray it on, but it’s hardly noticeable.

NYX BB Cream
This product is not new to me. I’ve been using it regularly for over a year now in place of foundation, and I love it. It moisturizes and feels much lighter on my face than foundation does. I also find that it works just as well to cover up blemishes and even out my skin tone.

July Glam Bag

AYKQ7353I just got back from vacationing in Florida, so I’m exhausted. I’ve been awake since 3:15 am this morning because I had an hour drive to the airport and an early flight back home. I’m going to make a post about my trip in a day or so when I gain some energy back. I just wanted to do a quick post since it’s been a little while since my last one.

I’ve been a subscriber to Ipsy for a little over a year now. It’s fun seeing what products are selected for you each month and getting a chance to try some new things. I got my July bag a couple weeks ago, but I just haven’t gotten around to posting about it yet. I think each month I will share what I got in my bag and my thoughts on it.

Here are my thoughts on this month’s Ipsy bag.

Overtone Review

SERI7234This is not a sponsored post. I purchased the products with my own money and would like to review them for anyone who might be interested.

I first heard of Overtone a few months ago when I saw an ad on facebook. I was instantly intrigued. Hair conditioner that actually colors your hair at the same time? Sign me up! It almost seemed too good to be true, but I wanted to find out.

I went to their website to check out the different selections they offer. They have a variety of colors to choose from, and each color comes in Pastel, Vibrant, or Extreme. Pastel obviously being the lightest shade, Extreme the brightest, and Vibrant somewhere in the middle. You can then choose if you want to get your choice of color in the Deep Treatment, the Daily Conditioner, or both. The Deep Treatment is recommended if you want to deposit color into your hair. The Daily Conditioner is used after you’ve already got color in your hair and want to help keep it from fading.

The makers of Overtone say that the colors show up on medium brown to lighter hair, so you don’t even need to bleach your hair first. Of course the lighter your hair is to begin with, the better the color will show up. If you have dark blonde to brown hair, the Extreme would probably be best for you. My natural color is dark blonde, but I currently have my hair highlighted, which makes it about a medium blonde. I ended up choosing the Vibrant for myself.
