Prabal Gurung for Target

If there is something that I absolute love, is a good deal. Now, things are even better when you can get a really good quality piece for a fraction of the price. Therefore, thank you Target for bringing some pretty nice high end items at (usually) reasonable prices. Their newest collaboration is with Prabal Gurung and you all know that I had to check it out. I was immediately attracted to the flowery patterns and colorful options.

I have recently been on a hunt for a new pair of black heels and it so happened that Prabal’s line has a gorgeous pair. Of course, I picked them up at my nearest Target and I couldn’t be happier!

They are a strappy heel with a plastic string that ties at the top and a zipper on the back so it’s very easy to put on. Now, I can say that they feel comfortable when I tried them on but we all know that those feelings go away very quickly after wearing them for many hours.

This line has many more cute shoe options and incredible clothing items. Let’s just say that I had a very hard time leaving Target with just one Prabal item. I’m so excited to wear these babies in many outfit of the day/night so please get ready!

Hope you all enjoyed this post! Please let me know if you picked up any item from the Prabal Gurung line for Target.

Thoughts: Wet & Wild Lipsticks from Centerstage Fergie Line

Good morning everyone! I have two new products that I want to share my thoughts about. They are two shades from the new Centerstage Fergie for Wet & Wild.

First things first, the names are absolutely adorable: Old School Glam and Fuchsianista! I may have partially picked those two shades just because of the names.

WetnWild Fergie Lipsticks

On a serious note, the colors are AMAZING! I’ve only had these colors for a day and I’m already in love. I wore Fuchsianista to work today and got tons of compliments.

Initial thoughts:

– Like the sleek packaging

– Love the range colors they have available

– Not a big fan of the lipstick peeking out of the package but I can live with that.

Old School Glam:

– Beautiful redish pinkish shade with a hint of orange

– Completely matte with a hint of gloss

Fuchsianista:

– Deep pink shade with blue pearlescent undertone

– Not matte, has a hint of shimmer

They both have:

– Amazing pigmentation

– Go on very smooth

– Pretty good staying power (Only reapplied once)

– Great price! (Less than $4)

I am completely in love with these lipsticks! Wet and Wild has done it again and I can’t wait to get a few more shades! Definitely recommend you all try these lipsticks!

For some reason, I can’t find any of these items online. Maybe they are way too new. They should be available at your local drugstore but make sure you check for special displays.

Have you tried any of the new Centerstage items?

Review: Garnier curl calm down cream

 

Hey everyone! I mentioned to you all a while back that I bought the Garnier Curl Calm Down Cream to try on my not so manageable curly hair. I recently finished the entire bottle and wanted to share how I feel about the product!

I have pretty curly ringlets that tend to get frizzy without any product in it. I enjoy having a natural look without looking like I have stiff curls. I also have a reasonably large amount of hair.

The cream claims to:

  • 24hr definition, frizz control and intense moisture
  • With nourishing shea
  • Makes hair super soft, with a great curl pattern

(Claims are thanks to the Garnier website!)

Retails for: $4.29

Things I liked:

  • Texture of the cream
  • Smells wonderful!
  • Makes my hair feel soft
  • Packaging! It has a pump!
  • Great for touch ups (For example: If I wanted to pick up my hair on the third day, it would be great to slick back my hair for a messy look.)
  • Price is great!

Things I DIDN’T like:

  • Didn’t do much to my hair without applying other products.
  • Always felt like I had to use a lot of cream to get all my hair.
  • Product didn’t last very long since I always had to use a lot.

All in all, the product felt good on my hair but if I used it alone, it just became a frizzy mess because it didn’t hold my curl very well. If you don’t have frizzy and extremely curly like mine then it might work for you as a light cream to give you some kind of hold. If you have curly hair like mine, I would suggest pairing this product with some sort of mousse and hairspray for a more contained look.

For more reviews, check out the Garnier website!

Please let me know if you know of any other products I should try!

New BB Creams!

Just like every makeup love out there, I too was extremely excited to hear that Maybelline and L’oreal developed their own versions of BB creams. As you all know, I am a big fan of It’s Judy Time and she happened to have a very useful and informational review of BOTH products. Therefore, I wanted to share it with you all to get a better look at what they both have to offer.

I hope this helps you make your choice when choosing which BB cream will work for you! The graph below will give you an easy overview of what I thought were the biggest differences according to Judy’s review.

I have yet to try out any of these BB creams since I didn’t have such a great experience with the Garnier version, therefore I wanted to do some intense research before I made the leap a purchase a new one. I hope this helps you all out too.

Below are some more reviews that I have found helpful throughout my research. Hopefully I will have a review soon of my experience with one of these products!

Thank you all for reading my blog and I hope to see some comments below with your thoughts.

Nail of the Week!

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and an ever better start of a new week!

Here is my current nail polish from Sinful Colors called Rise and Shine. This is an absolutely beautiful turquoise color with some tiny hints of shimmer that are barely visible until the sun hits it!

Great thing about these nail polishes is that they have a very large color selection and a BEAUTIFUL price at only $1.99 per polish. If you’re lucky, you can even catch them for less than $1 on sale!

Hope you all enjoyed this post! Let me know if you try this color or have any other Sinful Colors favorites!
