What’s in my bag?

10 Nov

Hello readers! i’m finally back from my hiatus 🙂

I’ve missed blogging.

So I just wanted to do a What’s In My Bag? post, since it looks so fun.

So let’s get started ^__^

 

This is what my makeup/beauty bag looks like; I only keep essentials in there.

Snapshot_20091109It’s a pretty thin bag. How I get all of my things in there, I don’t know. It’s about the size of a book. It was a free offer from Clinique.

What it holds. Let me just forwarn you, I’m a pretty simple girl when it comes to makeup:

From left to right:

1)Almond moisturizing lotion; sample size. It’s alright. Neutral smell. I carry it around for the convenience of it.

2) Peratin nourishing oil treatment , sample size : I LOVE this stuff. IT smells amazing and feels like silk when it goes into my hair. The cool thing is, you can use it on your skin too!!!!!!!

3.)Revlon PINCH ME sheer gel blush in Playful Pink : I like this gel a lot. It makes it look like you’re glowing from within. The only bad this is that you have to use a lot for the color to start showing.

4)  Nivea A Kiss of Flavr Cherry Tinted Lip Care ; I definitely recommend this. It’s like a lip tint and lip balm blended together. I like this since it’s like a lipstick replacement.

5)Clinique shee powder blusher in 15 Wild Rose, sample size ; For those timeswhen I perfer powder blush over gel blush. I like the name.

6) Angelic Eye High Definition Mascara from KEANCOLOR : This gives me a LOT of volume and length. Sadly, it comes with clumps.

7) Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels Hevenly, sample size : smells lovely.

8) NATROBBINS Creme to powder eye pencil in Slate Cp 4 ; I love this eyeliner. It’s super smooth and glides on easily.

9) a couple of bobby pins.

 

I’m a minimalist, sorry.  I had a revlon blush palette that I love. However, I seem to have misplaced it while using it in the car.

Any questions about the products above? Go ahead and ask.

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum

10 Nov

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum

The Claims:

  • Smoothes and Softens – Their exclusive Super Skinny Complex penetrates deep into the hair shaft where it displaces water and constricts the hair,
  • Conditions and Seals – Lightweight silicones smooth, condition and seal hair with added shine
  • Reduces Drying Time – A smoother surface and tighter diameter greatly reduce drying time and speed up
  • Reduces Frizz

My verdict: 5/5

I love the smell of it, first off. It makes my hair feel like silk, but use only a little! Since I have A LOT of layers, I only use about 1 pump, apply it to my ends, and leaving about a 1 inch distance from my roots so it won’t look oily. It makes my hair liike healthy and smooth, and truly does reduce the drying time.However, it was a bit pricey, unless you get the smaller bottle. But remember, since it’s a serum, it’ll last you quite a while.

Would I buy it again? Yes.
