Hello beauty bloggers,It's 2 in the morning and I'm still up cuz I have to share with you my newest hair obsession, which is this Aussie 3 minutes miracle. I went to target today to get some stuff and the Aussie hair care line was on sale for 2.99,so I decided to pick this baby up and I could not be more happy. My hair was so damage because I used to perm it TWICE!!!! that's right people not one but double damages.... I also color and highlight my hair very often. And I also use flat iron and curling iron on a regular basis.So as you can imagine,my hair is so damage and I was in need of intensive conditioners. I've been using terax original crema for a while and it works wonders for my hair. Then I ran out of it, so I went to ulta to get my beloved Terax.When I got there I saw that they have JOICO on sale cuz it was like in a holidays packages or something like that. Now, I've heard lots of great things about JOICO lines so I was like what the heck,just give it a try.I bought the body luxe set for 10 dollars. That's was a great deal, I was so excited to try them. So I went home and step in the shower and did my things blah blah blah, and when I was done I noticed that my hair was so tangled and feel very corse and dry, not moisturizing at all. But I thought it was just my hair reacted to the new stuff.... 2 days later I washed my hair again and the same thing happened again and it was just repeating in the same patterns. My recovered hair is once again back to being dry, damage and tangle like I can not believe. Like my hair has never been that tangle in my life. So I throw away the whole set which is shampoo, comditioner, and serum. Was a waste of 10 bucks :-( Then my quest for intensive care begins AGAIN for the 37th times. I knew I could always goes back to my beloved Terax original crema, but one of my friend highly recomended I try the Aussie line. She said it work like a charm and it's cheap. So I was very skeptical at first but gave it a try anyways ang OMG...... I found a treasure laying inside Target...♥ Target is my favourite drugstore by the way.... This 3 minutes miracle deeeeep conditioner is absolutely amazing. Within just ONE use my hair felt so soft and so healthy within ONE use..... I mean how does that happen????? It's a miracle in a bottle.!!!!! yes yes it is, it's truly a miracle. I loves this and I will go back to target first thing in the morning to get shampoo and conditioner from AUSSIE♥ It's 2.99... how can you say mo to that. I will stick with aussie 3 minutes miracle masque for now. So long Terax......

So it's officially freezing here in jersey, and I absolutely hate winter and what it does to my skin. I've been slathered on lotion and face cream and lip balm like crazy in the past two months !!!!!! My skin gets do dry but not as bad as my lip. I swear in the past two months I've tried every lip balm there is in Target (-_-) and Walmart, and Sephora.!!! My lip are like a desert island in the mid of summer. So dry, crack and peel like crazy. I am very OCD about my lip not being soft and smooth, like I refuse to do anything before I can get all those skin that are peeling off my lip off my lip ?? I am very particular about my lip products. I f it has glitters or sparkles or anything grainy in texture to it, I will go far far away from them. I know a lo of people don't mind it, but definitely not me. A few months back I got my hand on Sara Happ Lip slip, And I absolutely loves it. I tried her lip scrub too and it was also oh-so-fabulous// First of all, I'm a sucker for cute packaging, and this caught my eyes the moment I saw it. It come in a cute little gold box with a bow on it. I mean how can you not get a balm with a BOW on it.... soo adorable. When I open the jar there was a pinky balm with lots of sparkles staring right at me and I though Oh, it has a sparkles in it, will it be gritty in texture?? I was horrified....but a girl got to do what a girl got to do. So I wash my hand and dip my finger in the balm and to my surprised.... it was a soft, creamy balm. I thought it was gonna be hard in texture like many of lip balm in a pots and jars. Like imagine MAC tinted Lip cond. or Smith Rosebud salve.. I was expecting something like that. But noo this was so soft and creamy.. like how to I explain it.. you know how when you dip your finger in a tub of vaseline.. it was even MORE soft and creamy than that... wayyy more.. almost like a very thick body cream that kind of texture. So I went ahead and spread it all over my lip, and it was so smoothhhhhh. No gritty or grainy texture at all.. a tad sticky like a lip gloss as well. It has a slight sheen to it so you can wear it as a lip gloss as well. The staying power of this is above and beyond. It will last me through my morning coffee and lunch.. and beyond. It last so long and it keep my lip nice and soft throughout the day. Despite the $25.00 price tag. I would buy this again and again.
Another one of my favourites lip balm of all time is this Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment
It has the most amazing smell, it like sweet lemony scented. And again the screw cap ensure that it will never fall out in my purse which is a plus<-_-> I use this everyday, and I have to stop myself from reaching for this every couple hours or so. This as I already mention has the most incredible smell, and the fact that they come in a swival tube makes it a breeze to apply in a hurry. Be careful though, twisted up gently, since the balm itself is soooo soft and creamy, if you're not careful you can easily break them in just a simple twist..Do not put these cuties in your pocket or leave them in your car in the summer cuz it will melt like crazy in a flash. I used up this lip balm very very quickly. I think it's because the texture is so soft that it so easy to over apply them, sometimes I purposely ovet apply them cuz they're such a indulgence. I loves everything about this balm, the packaging, the smell, the spf, the fact that it has no color, did I mention the scent??? The only thing I'm not crazy about is the price tag, This will set you back $24.00 or so.. That's why I have to fight the urge to apply this very often. Foe the sake of my skinny limpy wallet....

Happy Holiday everyone. It's the most wonderful time of the year ain't it??? of course it is,especially with all of the cosmetics brands are coming out with their holiday collections. All are very delectable...my wish list is getting longer and longer by the minutes hahaha!!!! So this saturday Lord and Taylor will have a gift with purchase for Clinique.. I am usually does not get real excited about Clinique GWP since I don't really use much of their products EXCEPT one which is the Clinique Exfoling Scrub. Honestly I must say that this is posibly the most agrassive face scrub I've ever encounter with in a long long time.I know a lot of people can not use this one especially if you have a sensitive skin but since I have oily skin I can see the potential in this one.The texture of this is very grainy and very scrub-y. I usually dampen my face a bit before I put this one on. It also had kind of minty smell to it which I absolutely hate at first but came to love it as I continue using them :-) I usually use them in the morning because the minty scent really wakes me up real good. So I dampen my face, squeeze a pea size of the scrub on to the back of my hand and with my finger tip spread it out and massage it in the circular motions around my entire face. Then rinse it out with water and follow with your regular skincare routine. This scrub had left my face very soft and smooth. And let me tell you, I haven't break out ever since I use this exfoliator and I have been using this one at the beginning of the year!!! I use it once every 2 days, and it last a long long times for me since I only need a tiny bit of it at the time. It is $18.00 for 3.4 oz. tube which is not bad compare to the result. Again don't use them if you have sensitive skin. This is the real deal exfoliator.. Happy Christmas Shopping Everybody <3

These are my HG liners,, Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil... I tried a LOT of liners and pencil is my favotite. It very practical and very easy to use, the problem with these is that some of them,actually a lot of them are not creamy enough for me and it kind of irritate my lids when I DRAGGED it across them.Not with these, these are THE creamiest eye pencils I have ever use in my whole entire life!!!!!And I will NEVER use any other liners that are in pencil form other than this one...Yes it is that good people... I go through these very quickly since I use them everyday and it needs to be sharpen. So may be that's one of the downside. But the creamyness of this made up for it. hahah <3 It stay on for ever too. So I have to use an oil base makeup remover to clean it out at night. But a lot of people told me that it tend to smear a lot when they use this to line their waterline, but I don't have a problem with that, so maybe it just me !!! These liners will set you back $17.00. which I think worth every pennies to me. My favorite is zero which is blac, and 1999, which is a rich brown.. I do have all of their colors, but these two are my favorites cuz I can use them for everything and anything...

I don't know what, where, when, or how I got started with Bobbi Brown, but I've been hooked ever since..I think my first love affair with Bobbi Brown was probably her lipstick. My very first lipstivk that i got from Bobbi Brown was from her permanent line called Tulle Brown. And I loved it so much that I was willing to try more Bobbi Brown products. Did I know what I was getting into (and my skinny bank account too!!!) That lipstick was the perfect color for me, I used them everyday, several times a day, not that it didn't last,it just that I love how smooth and creamy it glided on my lip!!!!. Then as I ventured into the brand I have tried a lot of Bobbi products, I come to a conclusion that Bobbi Brown is my new favorite brand... Every thing just seem to works for me. I am a makeup whore and I do own tons and tons of makeup, yet I tend to go for a natural and simple look a lot, and that is exacttly the Bobbi Brown concept for her make up line. Something simple yet elegance, Easy yet beautiful..I think her makeup is so timeless, It can never be "out" because this is the kind of makeup that you can use everyday, the color seem very basic and boring at first. because I love NARS, and as you know NARS have a lot of colors, and when it came to Bobbi Brown, In was like nahh everything look the same!!! seem like all of the color are so plain and boring. Is this for a more mature people?? But I tried it anyways, and was I wrong. The formular and color are very very easy to wear, Anyone can wear it, no hard tricks or techniques or how to guide that you need to learn. Just use your hand and VOILLA!!!! done!!
