GRWM 4 - Night Out Makeup Featuring Urban Decay Anarchy Palette

Hey guys! Long time no see! I apologize for the lack of updates, photography class and my science exams are taking over my life! It's rather insane how much material we have to know for all our classes nowadays...especially when all the exams line up on the same week. As such, I've taken a step back from a lot of things, one of which included my blog. I hope you guys forgive me, school has to come first if I want to do graduate with flying colors!

This video is the first of two videos I will be posting this week. This video is a Get Ready With Me Video, featuring a subtle night out look that I wore when I went out with my family the other day. The look I created was my using the Urban Decay Anarchy Palette. My first impression of this product is rather so-so. While I do like the look it gives, I am not happy at all with the fall out the first eyeshadow gave me! I've never experienced that much fall out in any of my eyeshadows so it was kind of shocking!

Elf Studio Eyebrow Kit in Medium - Review

Review: Arganics by NuMe Argan Oil

Claims: Dried out hair from all the fabulous styling you've done to it? Not to worry--NuMe's got the perfect elixir for those thirsty locks. With NuMe's famous Arganics, you can give your hair the moisturizing experience it deserves.

Your hair will fall in love with our Argan Oil, a luscious recipe rich in Vitamin E and other beneficial fatty acids. This specialized non-greasy formula will penetrate damaged hair cuticles, leaving your hair stunningly healthy from the inside out. But wait--there's more! Our advanced Arganics reduces drying time in damp hair while deeply hyrdrating and prevents fading on color-treated hair. Argan Oil is also ideal for dry and tired skin as a reparative moisturizer, soothing rough and ravaged spots from head to toe.

Shine on with a refreshing aroma and a Brand Nu perspective!
Price: $59.00 (I purchased this with itsjudytime promo, which also came with the 19MM Magic Wand, it totaled to $64)
Size: 4 fl oz/118 mL
Where Can It Be Purchased?: NuMe

Hey guys! So today I will be doing a review on the Aragnics by NuMe Argan Oil. I received this back during the summer with my NuMe haul. Prior to the whole argan oil craze that happened in the beauty world, many cultures have been putting oil in their hair for years. As such, I was very excited to try this product out once I received it!

The packaging of is made of glass, so you have to be careful when you take it out of the mail. I, unfortunately, wasn't careful so I broke it almost immediately! As such, this product won't be the best for travelling, so you would have to put in a travel container.

Travel Container from Target that I am currently keeping the Argan Oil in 

So prior to using this my hair was normal consistency for the most part, not too dry and not too greasy. However, I had a lot of split ends were really dry. Once I started using it on both my skin and my hair, I saw a lot of wonderful changes. I have used this product on my hair for over six months now and I have to say that I have realized that my hair has significantly improved since I started using this product. The oil has led my hair to be smooth, moisturized, and smelling good. I use about a dime size amount for my hair when my hair is about 80% dry (after I wash my hair). I highly recommend using the argan oil when your hair is still wet because it will still be able to penetrate your hair rather than sit on it. I've tried using this when my hair is 100% dry and the affect is not the same. My hair has a tendency to be really greasy when I use the product dry.

While I do recommend this product, I feel like buying this product full price is a bit...rather huge (the price tag is a bit hefty!) Although this is a very expensive product, I have barely made a dent on this product, so I expect to have this product for the a really long time. While I would repurchase this product if I can get it on sale, I would probably not purchase the product at full price. I feel that there are dupes for argan oil somewhere (I know that Sally's Beauty Supply sells it at the fraction of the cost).

Update: Interested in a drugstore alternative? Check out my review of the OGX Argan Oil of Morrocco here.

What do you guys think? Have you guys ever used hair oils? Let me know in the comment section below.

January 2014 Makeup Favorites

Benefit They're Real Mascara
So the rave on this mascara is definitely true! This lengthens my mascara very well, and while it is not a waterproof formula I do not notice any smudging (granted the weather in Florida isn't hot or we can only find that out for sure in the summer). Definitely something great to own for a girl who has short lashes, in my opinion!

Benefit Watts Up Highlighter
I just got back into the cream product bandwagon this winter, and this highlighter is the main reason. I love the champagne glow it gives on my cheek without being too shimmery! The creaminess and the ease of blendibility also make this a dream. I will definitely buy the full size of this product when I finish!

Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Polish in Dani
I'm completely addicted to this lip gloss! This is a beautiful sheer berry lip gloss that I have been topping my nude, pink, and berry lip sticks throughout this month. The formula isn't too sticky, and plus I love the minty taste of it!

Elf Studio Brow Kit in Medium - Review
I have fallen back in love with this brow product, mainly with the brow gel on the left. I have primarily been using just that portion of the brow kit to fill in my brows and it stays put for the majority of my days!

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer in NW25
I've only had this product for less than a month but daaang, does this cover well. I'm quite positive I should've picked up NW20 instead of NW25, but I can work with it so it makes it slightly okay. I really like the finish it gives, and the product is long lasting. Will do a full review later on within the next month or so.

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser - Review
I did a review of this product a couple of weeks back, and I'm still enjoying this product a lot. This gives me a nice base to work with and it minimizes my pores!

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
As you can see, this is a very well loved palette in my collection (thanks to my sisters help, I have hit pan on Chopper). I have been gravitating towards this eye shadow palette this month for my neutral makeup looks and it has consistently been a staple in my makeup collection for the past year that I've had it.

Get Ready With Me: Valentine's Day Collab with ErrinLovesMakeup

Hello guys! Sorry if I haven't been able to been posting, I was rushing (yes, Greek rushing - Alpha Phi Omega style) and this weekend was our Lunar New Year! For those of you who celebrate the New Year, I wish you all the best! (I've been currently pigging out on Chinese and Vietnamese food). And, for those of you who are curious, Alpha Phi Omega is a co-ed service fraternity; they focus on service and fellowship events! I'm currently hoping for the best with the fraternity, I am currently a pledge but hopefully by the end of the semester I will become a brother! 

Anyways, today I have a Valentine's Day Collab with Erin over at ErrinLovesMakeup (check out her video here). My video features a nude eye and pink lips! Erin's is more of a cranberry eye and nude lips!

I hope you guys enjoyed the video and please let me know what you think!
