It's a 10: Miracle Leave-In Product
The smaller bottle is 18 dollars at Ulta, and I have been told it's also at Target, maybe for cheaper. Don't let the size fool you, it has lasted a long time. I have been sharing this bottle with the two other girls in my house, and it is still going strong! Actually, one of them brought it home as a free sample from Ulta... So I didn't even need to spend a dime this time (unintentional rhyming),
but I can assure you, part of my next paycheck will be going to this little blue bottle.
It makes your hair feel soft, and it smells amazing. To be quite frank, after using it my hair feels like I just spent a whole lot of money at a salon. I've only read great reviews about it, and I agree with them all. It's as easy as spraying all over your hair after a shower. Like the name the product is definitely a 10, and makes my love it list.
Stila: Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner
I almost gave up on liquid eyeliner, then my lovely sister bought me this Stila eyeliner. I am going to try and not oversell this, but let me tell you it goes on so smooth, ZERO clumps and is very easily adjustable! If I don't like how it goes on, one wipe and it is off. And it still lasts ALL DAY! When I was fed-up with my last waterproof eyeliner I just bought a generic brand, non-waterproof and it was off my lid in a matter of 15 minutes, possibly more frustrating than scraping mistakes off my eye-lid.
Now, this isn't magic. I still have a hard time making my wings exactly the same every time or matching thickness, but I have never had a hard time starting over or "erasing", and I couldn't be happier.
This fabulous liquid pen is $20, and, like Heather, that sounds like a lot to me. I know it really isn't that much, but I never thought I would spend more than a few bucks on eyeliner. In fact I probably wouldn't have bought this for myself, but thanks to my thoughtful sister I will never buy anything else. One of the big reasons I have a hard time splurging on eyeliner is it always runs out in a couple weeks. Not this one, I have been using this same stick since Christmas! Christmas was 5 months ago! 146 days of wearing this eye-liner and it is still standing!! That alone would be reason enough to sell me, but I love it for SO much more. I have now said goodbye to raw eyelids, missing wings and chunky liner.
The Denman Classic Styling Hair Brush
Growing up with thick and unruly hair, you can imagine how many hair brushes this red mane has destroyed, and how many tearful nights or mornings I spent trying to detangle all this craziness I call hair!
I had a friend come over and mention my hairbrush was needing TLC so I looked at my broken bristled generic hairbrush from the grocery store and thought….I am a young lady who deserves some grown-up woman hair care products. So I marched my way down to Sally’s Beauty Supply and bought the best, most simple, but PERFECT hair care product of my life.
The Denman Classic Styling Hair Brush has kept my hair easily soft and tangle free! I brush my curly hair starting from the bottom to the top. I have minimal pain, and no excess hair fallout! On days when I straighten my hair, I use this to assist in straightening by guiding my hair into my straightener while brushing it in with this AMAZING brush. Its sounds so weird, but my hair has been easier to style and maintain. I actually enjoy doing my hair now, and feel it looks so much healthier.
