Product Review!

 It's almost Friday! I have absolutely no plans thus far and I love it! My last few weekends have been so low key that it is nice to just enjoy each day and not have any plans :)

But lately I have been trying new products and I figured I would do a review on them! 

A few months back I did a post about my skin care regime which was all Clinque and E'stee Lauder. Well a good family friend sells Mary Kay and she swore that if  I switched I wouldn't regret it.

In my mind a product that is $50 will work better than a $12 product so I was a little hesitant to start, plus my face is sensitive when switching products so I really didn't want to.

But I did

Enter my new skin care routine :

 I use the Velocity cleanser, toner, and moisturizer twice daily. The Velocity line is great for oily skin and for acne prone skin. 

Second from the right is the mask I use three times a week. Because I didn't wear sunscreen for my entire high school and partial college life (and went to the tanning bed) I am starting to get hyper pigmentation already. Not good, this mask however basically bleaches any discoloration out.

I absolutely LOVE this entire collection. I have used it now for over a month, just to make sure I loved it! What is great is everything costs about $50, whereas before I was paying that for one cleanser. So I highly recommend it! You can find it HERE!

I also switched to this new L'Oreal shampoo after getting my hair highlighted about a month ago!

I will never use shampoo that is not sulfate free again. It makes such a difference with my hair. It feels and looks so much softer. Also I feel that my hair has more volume. Love, love, love!

After I get out of the shower I add a dime size amount of Moroccan Oil to the strands of my hair, mostly focusing on the last 4 inches or so.

The smell is absolutely amazing, and it has done wonders for my hair! 

E'stee Lauder eyeliner. 
#1 eyeliner ever.

As you can see, the Double Wear in black is almost gone :( It is my favorite because it stays on ALL day and does not wear off. Also it applies so smooth and clean that it leaves a flawless line every time! 

Last but not least is L'Oreal nail polish

Honestly, not in love. I bought it because originally they are $5.99. But Walgreens had them buy one, get one 50% off. So I thought I would give it a try and bought these four. Tip to remember: the cosmetics counter at Walgreens ALWAYS has coupons for different products. I asked if she did for L'Oreal and she said of course! I she used 4 $2 off coupons which took $8 off the already B1G1 so I was excited.

However  I will say I was in a rush and didn't use a bottom nor a top coat, and it is already chipping. So I can't really say anything too too bad because I am sure that is my fault. But I thought the coats went on so thin..I could of almost used three coats of just the color because it was streak-y and see through in places.

Happy almost Friday!!!
