Beautiful Textures Haul + Initial Thoughts;

Hey guys!
Today I have a much awaited hair haul.
I purchased some products from the Beautiful Textures line at my local Sallys.
I first heard about this brand in November or December & have been waiting to try them.
When I found out they were at Sallys I had to RUSH down & pick up some items!
There are 7 items in the collection & I picked up 4.

I purchased the Curl Control Defining Pudding, Tangle Taming Leave-in Conditioner, Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner, & the Moisture Butter.
My Initial Thoughts;
I have tried everything out this week & so far I like all of the products. My hair is still SUPER moisturized & the last time I applied any of these products was on Tuesday. I will say one thing I don`t like is the smell of the Curl Control & Moisture Butter. They have a very strong mango scent, which I`m not too fond of. The Leave-in & Deep Conditioner's smell isn`t as strong & a lot more bearable. I do plan to use these products a few more times to give a better overall review.

How I Used the Products;
I deep conditioned with the Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner for about 30 minutes. Shampooed with my favorite shampoo. Conditioned. Then I let my hair air dry for about 15 minutes. I then applied the Tangle Taming Leave-in Conditioner & Curl Control Defining Pudding. My curls were defined, but I still had a few that weren`t & my hair was still somewhat frizzy. A few days later I used the Moisture Butter for some two strand twists. From Tuesday until today I have yet to use anymore product & as I stated above, my hair is very moisturized & soft.

In the below picture I have in just the Tangle Taming Leave-in Conditioner & Curl Control Defining Pudding. You can see a little bit of the frizz on the left side.

I do plan to pick up the Curly to Straight & possibly the Shine & Silken.
Have you ladies tried anything from this line or would you like to?
If so, what would you like to try.

Thanks so much for reading.
Have a great Saturday.

NOTW; Co-Bolt

Hello guys!
Today I decided to share my NOTW.
I used a new nail polish I purchased from Walgreens.
It is the Sally Hansen Insta Dri Fast Dry Nail Color in Co-Bolt Blue.
This shade was on clearance & looked sort of like a blue purple in store.
However swatched it definitely is a true blue.
[Sorry for the messiness of the nails.]

What are you wearing on your nails this week?

I hope you guys enjoyed this post & thanks so much for reading.
I am approaching 100 posts & hope to have a giveaway at that time.

Hi guys!
This week`s mani has actually lasted me a good while.
These new Wet `n Wild polishes are lasting me at least 4 days before chipping!
I am definitely going to need to pick up some more very soon!
For this week`s mani I wanted to use 2 of my newest polishes.
I am using Wet `n Wild`s On A Trip & Soulstice Nail Colour in LA.
Here are my nails with just On A Trip.
&With LA on top of On A Trip.
As noted above, the WnW nail polishes are actually lasting me a lot longer than the others they have. I am not quite sure if they updated the formula or not, but so far I like it!
Also, if you have not picked up any of Wet `n Wild`s new nail polishes, visit Walgreens this week as they are Buy 2 Get 1 FREE! So 3 polishes for only $4! Such a great deal.

I hope you ladies enjoyed my NOTW!
What are you ladies wearing on your nails this week?

MAC Haul; Shop MAC/Cook MAC

Hi ladies!
I know I`ve been slacking on blog posts lately.
Sorry. I`ve been SUPER busy with work & planning a trip to FL for this weekend.
I did want to share my Shop MAC/Cook MAC haul before I left.
I do plan on purchasing Watch Me Simmer, if I like how it swatches in store.

The packaging is soooo cute!

I picked up Quick Sizzle.
This is a bright pink matte lipstick. &I am in loooove with it!
Swatched on my lips;

I also picked up Dish It Up.
It`s a bit darker than the picture.
The finish is a lustre.
Dish It Up on my lips.
Looks more true to color here.

Here I have the duo mixed on my lips.

I am definitely debating purchasing back ups of these two.
I love how both of these look on me.
I hope to pick up Watch Me Simmer.
I thought it would look like Vegas Volt[which I cannot pull off], but very different.
You can check out Danielle with Bloomin Beauty`s swatches here.

Have you ladies purchased anything from the MAC Shop/Cook collection?
If so, what did you pick up?

Thanks so much for reading.
