Product Review: OUAI Thick Hair Treatment Masque

Tried out this OUAI Thick Hair Treatment Masque for a more than a month and it seems to do a great job taming my mane. For disclosure, I have received this product for free from Influenster and OUAI in exchange for my honest review.

My hair usually gets dry and frizzy due to the nature of my job but this instantly hydrates and moisturizes my curls. This treatment masque is specially formulated with ingredients like almond, macadamia and olive oils, shea and illipe butters and hydrolyzed keratin. 

The scent profile is leaning towards fruity florals like lychee, berry, peony, freesia and jasmine but with the rose being the dominant note overall. The consistency is noticeably thicker than most hair masks I've tried but a little goes a long way! 

So far, I have noticed my hair looks shinier and healthier when I use this.
Definitely recommended for people with unruly thick hair!

Product Review: Mac Lipglass in Nymphette

 I'm not too fond of wearing lip gloss but Mac Lipglass makes me reconsider.

What I like about it?

- Medium coverage, pigmented enough that it can be worn by itself or under a lip liner or lipstick

- Sparkly glass-shine finish

- Moisturizing jojoba oil to help soften and condition the lips

- Long lasting compared to most lip gloss

- Not overly sticky, a little tacky but glides smooth on the lips

- Angled doe-foot applicator makes it easy for precise product application

- The formula smells sweet like a delicious chocolate cupcake

For this look, I am wearing one of their best selling shades - Nymphette . This is a light medium pink with warm undertones and gold shimmers. In my opinion, universally flattering for all skin tones and quite reminiscent of the iconic Nars Orgasm Blush. Definitely worth a try for any day to night look!

Product Review: Jozi Curls Curl Enhancing Spray

 I've been struggling to retrain my curl pattern due to hair damage so I've tried out products that could help me regain my luscious curls back. One of the products that I have tried recently is the Jozi Curls Curl Enhancing Spray. Here what I like: 

- Free from Parabens, Phthalates or Colorants. Vegan, Clean and Cruelty-Free

- Infused with sustainably sourced African Plant Extracts like Raw Shea Butter, Honeybush and Marula Oil

- Keeps my hair hydrated, shiny, smooth and frizz-free for hours. Smells great too!

- Non-greasy and prevents product build up

- Created by curly haired women for curly haired women

-Affordable, only $4.99 for a 250ml bottle!

The only thing I don't like is while I do want to love this product, it seems that my hair type does not seem to enjoy it as much. For reference, I have 2a hair with normal porosity and I did not get the same wonderful results as my fellow curly hair girls with type 3 to 4 hair. I'll probably try again and see if I get better results next time!

Product Review: Fenty Beauty Poutsicle Hydrating Lip Stain in Zesty Bestie

Hands down, the newly launched Fenty Beauty Poutsicle Hydrating Lip Stain might be the best lip stain formula that I have tried EVER. 

What's to love about it?

- The pigmentation is top-tier for a lip stain! A little goes a long way and the coverage is buildable as well. - The innovative oil-in-water formula infused with squalene goes on glossy AND keeps the lips hydrated without the stickiness, perfect for summer.
- Definitely kiss-proof, it does not transfer on my masks at all. Feather & bleed-resistant. It lasts all-day and surprisingly waterproof too!
- Comes in 4 vibrant wearable shades that would flatter all skin tones.
- It's cruelty-free and formulated without parabens & phthalates 

For this look, I am currently wearing Zesty Bestie which is a beautiful warm red coral shade that goes so natural on morenas like me. Definitely my new favorite lip stain for this season and I'm not surprised why it's sold out everywhere!

Product Review: ELF-C Bright Putty Primer

 e.l.f. Cosmetics has a newly launched addition to their Putty Primer collection - the ELF-C Bright Putty Primer. With the success of their best selling Poreless Putty Primer, they have created the same smooth all-day wear formula but with 2% Vitamin C; to give you a natural radiant flawless complexion in a jar! 

I don't usually wear primers just because I find them too much to layer with on top of my skincare routine. But this one feels so velvety smooth, doesn't pill up and minimizes the appearance of my pores. Surprisingly, non-greasy and lightweight. 

However, I have not seen it do much for my dark spots. But it does a good job in gripping my makeup very well as I have noticed my blush and foundation would last longer when I have it on. Would I recommend? For $12, this one is a steal! Definitely!
