Contest of the Month – Tmart Makeup Set

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

Tmart.com is sponsoring our contest of the month! They are giving away a free 168 Color Eyeshadow Palette Eyelash Liner Makeup Set to one lucky winner (see our product review below to find out more about the products). To enter to win, just comment below with your best makeup tip!

erase2We tried the 168 Color Eyeshadow Palette Eyelash Liner Makeup Set which includes:

  • One 168 Color Eyeshadow Set
  • One box of 10 Pairs of False Eyelashes
  • One Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

As you can imagine, with 168 colors, the eyeshadow has every color you can imagine. Since the packaging is sleek, it’s perfect for storage without taking up too much room. Makeup artists would probably love to keep this on hand so you have access to all the colors you might need in one palette. The eyeshadows in the palette are not pigment rich, so they have a more sheer finish. For intense color, you’ll need primer or to use the colors with water. They also blend very well.

This kit is a great value since you actually get TEN pairs of false eyelashes. The eyelashes are a nice texture and would be flattering on most, so again, this is a nice kit for makeup artists to have on hand. They did a great job varying the lengths of the eyelashes, so they’re natural looking enough to wear for a wedding. The kit does not include eyelash glue – we recommend buying black glue for best results.

Finally, the waterproof eyeliner is in a fun leopard print container. It’s a standard eyeliner and you can apply pressure to make thick lines or do a light swipe for thin lines. This is a very pigmented, truly black eyeliner. It is also a traditional liquid and does not have a gel-like consistency like some eyeliners on the market right now. You have a bit of time before it dries to correct any mistakes. After that it’s waterproof. But it’s not so waterproof that it’s difficult to wash off in the evening.

If you want to find out more about Tmart, go to their website or follow them on social media: Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

One winner will be chosen by 11/30/2013 and notified by email 12/07/2013. U.S. residents only. Odds of winning are 1 out of number of comments on this blog post. Winner will be contacted via email.

Tangle Teezer

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

Have you ever heard of the Tangle Teezer? It’s been awhile since there has been a new type of brush, so we thought this new detangling hairbrush would be more of the same. How different can a brush be? However, after we tried it we saw that it actually is different from other hair brushes and combs. From what we can see, the biggest difference is that the bristles are narrower than what you would find on a paddle brush, and they are more flexible as well. So when you go to comb your hair this hairbrush works with your hair instead of against it. The downside is that you will have to do more passes on your hair to get really big tangles. Or you’ll have to comb your hair in smaller sections to ensure all the knots are being addressed. If you have hair that’s prone to tangles, this is definitely an easy fix. A bonus is that you won’t have to use a bunch of hair products to detangle your hair. We also recommend this for kids. This hairbrush is a product of Great Britain, but you can find it at beauty stores such as Ulta and Sally Beauty Supply.

Tip: A great way to prevent tangles is to always keep your hair freshly trimmed. Split ends make your hair more prone to knots.

Quantum Riveting Reds Color Replenishing Shampoo

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

erase3Dyeing your hair red can be a real pain because it fades so rapidly. Christina Hendricks from Mad Men has to color her hair every other episode to maintain the vibrant shade! We tried Quantum Riveting Reds Color Replenishing Shampoo since it’s hair color friendly, and takes it a step further and actually deposits color. This shampoo also helps with frizz. This shampoo really does extend the life of your hair color. Your hair gets a bit more red with every use! It’s also gentle, so it doesn’t do anything dramatic for your hair texture. But you can make up for that by using a great conditioner.

Tip: For warm highlights, try using Marc Anthony Instant Highlighting Spray with this shampoo. Spray on your hair and flat iron for highlights, then when you shampoo use Riveting Reds. A very cost efficient way of getting amazing copper highlights!

Nuance Salma Hayek AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Cream

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

erase2 We appreciate that Salma Hayek’s beauty product line, Nuance, contains natural ingredients. The latest product we tried is the AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Cream. This contains tepezcohuite, which is a type of tree that ancient Mayans sourced for skin treatment. The upside of this cream is that it’s only $5, but the downside at only .265 oz, this will be the smallest container in your beauty cabinet. We actually liked the size since it’s not very sanitary to dip your fingers in a container of moisturizer for months on end. Our verdict is that this product works as well as pricier products in the anti-age arena. Hydration wise, this works well enough and is not very greasy. If you have extremely dry skin you may need more moisture.

Tip: If your skin needs more moisture than your favorite anti-age cream provides, try layering with a skin oil. For example Bio-Oil works well in conjunction with other products.
