BIG Shampoo Review

Hello lovely readers,
im doing another hair product review since i have been trying different things lately to have gorgeous hair =]
About a month ago i went into the Lush store and received a good sample of their BIG shampoo, as well as the American Cream conditioner. oh how lucky did i feel well this is how i feel now after trying them both...

  • Smells like salt and lemons....margarita anyone =]
  • the texture is like kosher salt seriously or sea salt whatever
  • for looking and feeling like salt, you being to wonder if this stuff will actually work and lather...omg it does hehe
  • the salts dissolve real easily which doesnt make it hard for it to wash out.
  • makes your hair super duper silky smooth...and i love that the most about this stuff
  • the scent can be annoying
  • its suppose to make your hair "BIG" mine did not do that, it looked like how it usually does
  • pricey!!! $21 for a shampoo... as if!
so will i actually purchase this stuff....nope! i mean it does make my hair super soft and i love that but i didnt want it for that purpose i wanted volume gosh darnnit! but hey some of the bloggers say this stuff works for i guess to each their own...wait is that how u say it??? lol

American Cream conditioner

  • none sorry
  • doesnt smell like anything really just like plain ol conditioner =/
  • i had to use the whole sample on my hair which was probably the size of 5 quarters and it still didnt do nothing ugh!
  • waste!
  • did not condition my hair, had to use my regular conditioner.
i probably sound like the grinch right now, but its true, the conditioner in my opinion sucked i would never purchase it, the shampoo like i said made my hair silky smooth and made it shine but as far as making it big with volume that it did not do, which made me very disappointed. so thats all folks before you spit out the cash for such an expensive product i say you ask for a sample first and try it out first cuz i might realize u dont like it, or love it!

Big Sexy Hair

Hello Bellas,
wow its been a while but honestly i didnt feel like posting, life has kinda sucked so writing about stuff would only turn into a disaster cuz i would probably sound real emo on all my posts. but i have been on here reading all your post which have kept me in better spirits. Hope you all had an awesome christmas or whatever you celebrate, i did cuz of the gifts i got lol jk
anyways, so for xmas i decided i wanted big sexy hair =]
thats exactly what i got.
A few months ago i purchased this mousse:

This product says to *create major volume and shine (from SexyHair website)
well let me tell you when i tried it a few months ago it did nothing for me, i hated it, i put away some where in my bathroom and never bothered with it again, till xmas eve i decided to give it one last chance, and so glad i did i applied a lot more this time while my hair was damp then blowdryer away lol omg my hair was was perfect, i loved it, i backed comb a lil but only a lil and it was lovely so i defeinetly recommend you ladies give this a try. i bought it at ross so i got for cheap, i know that TJ Maxx carries it to and its cheap there too! so here are my results

my hair is never like that its super flat so im in love with this stuff! (sigh) my friends were like whoa thats big hair lol

Hello Bellas,
its been a while since ive been on blogger and posted anything, being sick is not
the business.
But i am all better now, i want to thank all of you for following and reading, i really cant thank you enough. Now on to my hauls.
So i hit up Wal-Mart for some goodies and this is what i got:

i couldnt find my Garnier face wipes ugh! but i discovered these
l'oreal skin genesis micro smoothing wet towelettes, they remove makeup so i wil review these after a few tries =]
i also got Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer in 50 i will also do a review on this later.
and lastly,
MAX Factor pressed powder in deep
i plan on using this as a bronzer, so far i used it this morning and i love it! hahaha and it was 5 bucks since the u.s. is getting rid of the brand i had to have me some max before its really gone.

Forever 21 package arrived whoopie! and this is what i got

a sparkly dress

black tunic with studded collar

black blazer

some super cute suede heels (sigh) i love these.
Now for my last haul...

so i go in right and these sweet guy tends to me right away, which i love they always have great customer service. so i go straight for the star melts cuz i read about these and i wanted to try but people have mixed reviews so i bought one to try out, these little guys are so sticky they really will melt in your hand. Then i grabbed the famouse cmforter bar that smells so yum. So then i told the guy that i wanted to try BIG shampoo but didnt want to pay $22 for a bucket of this stuff cuz what if i didnt like it, so he was kind enough to give me a sample of it it smells so sweet so idk if i will like that scent on my head, then he offered to give me a sample of American Cream conditioner to try out also i was delighted =]
so now as i was at the register ready to pay i saw they had the little containers labeled cupcake which i opened and it smells yummy too ugh i want everything from there, so i asked the guy if he;s ever tried it and he said it works great for oily skin, so he told me go ahead and have it. I was like omg really?!! he was so generous and sweet i loved my experience there so i cant wait to use all this stuff.
anyways thats all of it, finally so will do a tutorial tomorrow since i have time tomorrow night to do it! till then

p.s. Makeup Babble is having an awesome giveaway she is giving away a dr.perricone product go check it out here.

The way i Sculpt My Eyes

Hello Loves,
last night i decided to sculpt my eyes since i was just going to school, plus my mom's xmas party is coming up and she wants me to do her makeup, so i dont want her looking like a hooker (no offense to those) but want to give her a classy look so i practiced on myself and this is what i came up with:
What i used...
88 CS Palette

Sigma and E.L.F brushes

MAC Blacktrack

NYX Jumbo Pencils in Milk and Iced Mocha

and UDPP not pictured i forgot oops!

ok so 1st i primed my lid with the udpp after that i applied NYX Milk in the inner corners of my eyes. I smudged it in to blend towards the middle of my lid then applied #1 on the pic showing the colors i used from the 88 palette. I used that light color to go over the inner corner of my eye with my Sigma ss252 brush.
After that i applied #3 and applied it all over the lid using the same brush.
With the Sigma ss219 i took the #2 and went over the crease and the v corner and blended it in.
I then took my MAC 224 and used the #4 as a highlight.
After the lids were done i took the ss209 and used it to line my eyes with MAC Blacktrack Fluidline.
With the E.L.F brush i took some of the #2 and smudged it all over my lower lashline, but not oo much just enough. Then took NYX Iced Mocha and lined my lower lashline. And whala! eyes all done, i like it for my mom, she didnt get to see it cuz she was already asleep, but i will keep doing different looks to see whats the best for her, now for pics..

(i have huge eyes so i dont go all the way down to the inner corner otherwise wow bug eyes lol

So i was bored shoot me! =]

Hair Extensions

Hair extensions. Lots of girls use them to make hair look longer and thicker.

My question is out of all the kinds you can get, where can i get good clip on extensions???
I made the dumb mistake in cutting some length off and now i wish i could just glue it all back =[ so i thought to myself not all is lost, i could just try some extensions. The reason why im asking about clip ons is because i heard that they are less damaging than the kind you get sewn in. So if you ladies know what's up please do tell, I cant wait to flip my long hair, well my store bought hair =]

Nov. Favourites

Could it be im actually posting again?
well now that i have my camera i can =]
anyways here goes my November favorites:

  1. NYX l/s in Honey: this lippie is a great nude by itself of not i put a coat of NYX sorbet l/g on top to make it shine, but i love it without too.
  2. Almay Smart Shade Concealer in light/medium: this is a weird but good product, it does cover really well, sometimes it looks dry depending on how my skin is being (oily or not) but i gotta say i like it.
  3. Target brand Smudger Brush: this brush is my go to brush every single time i wear makeup so its my all year round fave. i like the lower lashline smudged cuz it gives me a sexy just woke up and look fierce ok not even but u catch my drift. and it was only $2.
  4. Clinique All about Eyes cream: i love this, i used it a lot this month since it was my bday and lots of drinking was going on, which means i totally puffed up, especially in the eye area. so this does the trick every time.
  5. MAC Prep+Prime: ok ok so not a lot of people love this stuff, i personally found a better primer but this stuff is good, and its what i have been reaching for a lot lately, especially since its cold andmy nose loves to turn like rudolphs the raindeer. a bright red, and well with this my makeup stays on when i rub my nose so barely any redness.
  6. MAC Fix+ : ok so who doesnt love this stuff, it keeps my makeup intact. enough said.
  7. MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in Med/Dark: this is my favorite, i put it on top of my liquid foundation to set it like my MUA told me to and it evens out my color, i love it, looking silky smoooth haha love the zohan =]
So thats it my favs, what are yours this month??

One of my bday gifts

Hello loves,
So i told you in a previous post that i received as a gift from my bestie for my bday that was what i have been wanting for a pretty long while, i got my sigma brushes, the complete kit set to be exact. I was jumping with joy cuz she knew how bad i wanted them. So here they are:

*i forgot to take a picture of 3 in here oops =]

As you all know they come numbered just like the MAC brushes but the Sigma Brushes have an"SS" before each number.
In this kit i received:
  • SS150 Very dense with a rounded top. Ideal to apply powder products on face and body. Natural bristles.
  • SS190 Can be used to apply liquid or cream foundation. It is also recommended to apply moisturizers and conceal large areas. Synthetic bristles.
  • SS187 Specially designed to generate an ‘airbrushed’ finish when used to apply liquid foundation. It can also be used to apply blush, highlight shades and loose pigments. Blend of synthetic and natural bristles.
  • SS168 The angled shape makes this brush ideal to apply blush or contour shades. Natural bristles.
  • SS194 The rounded, tampered, flat shape makes this brush ideal to conceal the under eye area. It is also recommended for a precise application in small areas. Synthetic bristles.
  • SS275 Angled, tapered, flat top. Ideal to apply highlight shades underneath the eyebrow and on the inner corners. It can also be used for a precise application of darker shades on the crease area. Natural bristles
  • SS266 Essential for the application of gel or cream eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line. This brush is also excellent to filling out the eyebrows. Synthetic bristles.
  • SS252 Flat shape is ideal for application of cream formulas and eye shadow primers. It also works great with loose eye shadows or pigments. Can be used to apply color all over the lid or precisely on the lash line. Natural bristles.
  • SS219 Precise application of color on the crease, outer corner, and upper and lower lash line. Also ideal to smudge out pencil liner. Natural bristles.
  • SS224 Sounded and tapered top. Specially designed to apply and blend color on the crease. Natural bristles.
  • SS209 An extra-fine tipped synthetic fiber brush that delivers a precise, firm, even stroke with which to line the eyes.
  • SS239 Soft and dense with a rounded finish. Can be used to apply pressed or loose eye shadows and pigments. Ideal to build intense color on the eyelid. Natural bristles.
i also received a ss217 as a free gift.


i have to say these brushes are great for those who want to start off in the makeup world. These brushes are of great quality, comparable to high end brands. So far i love them, they havent shed on me yet, and i have been using them since i got them. They are so worth it. The bristles are very soft, and thats what we all look for in brushes. so i do recommend you ladies and gents to check'em out.
Anyone have Sigma brushes? what are your experiences and thoughts on them?
