Sally Beauty: Shampoos to Try

26 September 2010
I love Sally's Beauty supply, especially with the discount card. My usual drugstore shampoos just aren't cutting it now, so I'm on the search for a better shampoo. After looking over reviews on Sally's website, these are the ones I've narrowed down that I want to try. Keep in mind I have medium-curly, bleach-highlighted, and somewhat dry hair.

Spreading the St. Ives Love

21 September 2010
St. Ives has a great line of skin care products. Almost all of my skin care regimen consists of something of theirs. The thing I love best about St. Ives is the quality for the price. I don't think they have anything that's over $7 (or maybe even $6 depending on where you buy it). Other great things about them are that they don't test on animals or use animal ingredient, and the products are paraben and phthalate free. That's some pretty sweet stuff if I do say so myself. :)

This is my collection of St. Ives products. I'm sure it will only get bigger. I'm currently loving the Green Tea cleanser & Scrub!

I just come up with these names off the top of my head because I can't remember the names of the polishes ;)

We did Manicures and Pedicures this week at school. Most everyone was iffy about touching other peoples' feet, but it didn't really bother me so much. Michelle (my bff/cousin) did mine. We chose blue and green, and did like french manicure style.

After I got home, I had the urge to try water marbling again. And I succeeded (minimally)!

Review: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Hush Lip Tar

12 September 2010
The studying aspect of Cosmetology is keeping me so busy! I'm lucky if I get 10 minutes of internet time for myself. But that's how it goes. I've got to study hard and keep my grades above a 90% average so I can get the $1500 scholarship from Mr. Shuler. :)

I finally got around to trying out my sample of the Hush lip tar from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. The color is sort of nude pink with a little coral/peach tones. It takes very little to get full coverage on your lips, so apply sparingly with a lip brush. Its definitely drying without a lip balm underneath, and I don't particularly like the matte look of it once its dried. I like to top it off with some more balm or clear lip gloss for a little sheen. It lasts a lot longer than gloss or lipstick by itself. I think it was on my lips for about 4 hours before it started to disappear.

Beauty Bootcamp

08 September 2010
I said I was going to do reviews on this blog, and I'm going to get around to it! Right now with our "10 week beauty bootcamp" at school its a little hectic, learning all the stuff from the textbooks. I spend all of my free time studying. So I plan on doing reviews after 10weeks is over, unless I can get around to it on the weekend. Hopefully that will be case!

With Love,

Nail Designs: Marbling

07 September 2010
My dear hubby so sweetly was trying to help me with marbling. My hubby let me use his nails to practice on. I watched a couple of tutorials on youtube, but I still haven't managed to get it just right. The colors seem to come out too pale. Not sure why, I guess I (or we) will have to keep practicing!

FOTD: Green & Blue

Green and blue eyeshadows are probably my favorite combination of colors to put together. When I wear them, my eye color really seems to pop, because I have both colors in my eyes. :)

Phase 1, Week 3 Complete

I had another great week at school! :) Everything was fun about cutting men's hair.. except for all the little hairs getting stuck everywhere and being sooo itchy! LOL. We were a little behind on our practicals this week and so this morning we had to catch up, so we didn't get to have family/friends come in to let us practice on them. We did finish in time to practice shampooing/styling each others hair and do each others makeup. You can tell when Friday rolls around, because by the end of the day, most of us tease our hair and have big bumps on our hair, and we glam up our makeup. :)

I had my bangs trimmed, and of course had my hair bumped up because it's so flat anyway. I'm loving my new bangs. Just that little change makes a world of difference. Thanks to my instructor, Ms. Ingalls for cutting them! :)
