3 Reasons Why I Love the Katy Perry False Lash Collection by Eylure

24 Mar

Free false eyelash application? Um…yeah! I am constantly trying to perfect my eyelash expertise so when I was invited to check out the new Eylure collection by Katy Perry, I made sure to book some time on my weekend calendar to stop by my local Kohl’s store.

The story behind this collection is that Katy’s makeup artist used these on her during her tour and she would stack two or three pairs of lashes to achieve the on-stage look Katy loved.  Katy Perry became a huge fan of the false eyelashes that she approached the brand to collaborate, thus the Katy Perry Collection was born.

Top three reasons I like these false eyelashes:

  1. They are 100% human hair therefore they are ultra light, I don’t feel them nor do they weigh my lids down
  2. They are reusable unlike many that are one-time use only
  3. Great range of styles, from natural to costume

My favorite ones so far are Feline Fierce (pictured below) which are the one of the samples that were provided to me by the brand’s PR rep . Oh and here’s an insider tidbit, they will be launching ones with invisible bands soon! Follow Eylure USA on Facebook and Twitter.

Finding the Right Shampoo For Your Hair Type

29 Oct

I’ve had a lifelong battle with shampoo. After many years of dying and perming my hair, I still struggle with finding that perfect shampoo now that my hair is 100% in its natural state, no color, no chemicals. So what I look for in a shampoo now is much different than what I looked for in a shampoo when I was highlighting and spiral perming my tresses in my teen and college years.

I tested out numerous shampoos, ones that were popular and even ones that were hard to find. Then, there came a time when I wanted to simplify my hair routine. No more perms, no more highlights, just my hair in its purest state. Now, all I look for in a shampoo is simple – a good cleanse that leaves my hair with volume. That’s not asking for too much is it?

So when I was recently offered to review to “volumizing” shampoos, I said yes. I recently tried out the NEW Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner.
