Luxhair How Wig Collection by Tabatha Coffey review

Happy Sunday!  Browsing the Sunday paper today, I found an ad for Tuesday Morning.  I rarely go there, but the ad today had  Luxhair How wigs by Tabatha Coffey for $9.99! I own several hair pieces but I never wear them.  I just can’t seem to get them to match with my own hair.  I found a platinum curly piece that I loved!  I tried it on in my car, and hot damn!

Wow!

Can you believe this was only $9.99? They feel like real hair, and can be heat styled up to 320 degrees. It’s made of Keralon and are so soft and silky.  We are going on vacation in October, and my own hair is a frizzy mess these days, so these will come in handy.

I called another store to see if they had any more colors. They did, and off I went.  I got a straight style, super fun and very hippy like. These wigs normally sell for $80! I think the styles are discontinued as I had a hard time finding them online. Honestly, if I only wear each of them once, I would be getting my money’s worth.

Close to my natural color!

Hopefully my head isn’t as big as it looks in this photo! I don’t have the best selfie skills for sure. I found this same wig online for $79.98! The color is medium golden blonde.

Here is my favorite, I’ll be wearing this one a lot.  It is so gorgeous, and for $9.99, damn, I’m a good shopper! I’ve been trying to get my own hair in this style, and it just ain’t working.

 

Check out more of the platinum style, all three wigs have lace fronts on them.  They totally look like your own hair.

Total Gwen Stefani moment!  I’ll be styling when we go to New Orleans!  Check out my hair line!

They had lots of styles and extensions.  Something for everyone! They are non returnable, so keep that in mind.

Thanks for stopping by.

L’Oreal Brow Stylist Shape and Fill Brow pencil review

Happy Saturday! Can I just say I’m a coupon clipping kook! Not that’s a bad thing. I love new beauty products, and often find them in the Sunday paper coupons. It might only be a buck or two savings, but it’s a great way to try new products for not a lot of money.

Having coupons that expired today, I made my way to Ulta yesterday. I was trying to stay away, but I had to buy a birthday gift, and Ulta is next store to Charming Charlie  I had not been to Charming Charlie’s in awhile and was very pleasantly surprised. They had many more new and fun products. I almost purchased a book on how to tie a scarf. Lots of great gift ideas. Plus they carry e.l.f. products!

As you get older, your eyebrows get sparse. While I don’t pay a ton of attention to my brows, (i.e. rarely pluck, etc.), I do like them to look nice. Mine are blonde and I wear glasses.

I purchased L’Oreal Brow Stylist Shape & Fill in Blonde at Ulta.  The regular price is $10.99, I paid $4.24 using a manufacturer’s coupon, Ulta coupon and member rewards points. It is identical to Benefit Good Proof brow which costs $24 in my opinion.  The color I was using for the Goof Proof brow is number one.

Here is what’s on Ulta’s website:

Define your brow statement. L’Oreal’s Brow Stylist Shape and Fill Pencil is a unique 3-in-1 mechanical pencil with spoolie. The triangular tip precisely outlines, easily shades, and evenly fills brows. Soft styling spoolie blends for shaped brows.

Benefits:

  • 3-in-1 mechanical pencil with spoolie
  • Triangular tip
  • Outlines, shades, fills
  • Defined brows

 

The colors are the same, it’s hard to tell them apart.

They both have unique tips, which makes it easier to fill in your brows.

They both go on the same as well. I’ll be taking the Benefit Goof Proof back!

I don’t have a photo, as I tried the product on, but have no other eye make up on, and frankly I don’t want to scare anyone. (I’m super pale).

Thanks for stopping by.

 

 

 

 

 

Ulta Haul 8-18-07

Happy Saturday!  Ulta is my favorite store.  Lately I’ve cut down on my spending, so I haven’t visited in a while.

I’m a Ulta rewards member so I got a 20% off your entire purchase coupon recently.  The coupon included everything in the store.  This only happens a few times a year, and it’s for rewards members only.

I needed a few things and had a bunch of coupons as well that were expiring soon.

I got $115 worth of stuff for $66!  Some people may think clipping coupons is for old folks. Well if that is the case, count me in!

Here is what I got:

Ulta haul 8-18-17

I got Garnier Micellar Water this stuff is flipping awesome!  I’ve been using this for several years.  It’s easy to use and really takes off all of your make up.  I paid $4.15 for each bottle.  The regular price is $8.99.

I love Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil in number 1.  I paid $19.22, regular price $24.  I usually stay away from higher end cosmetics, but this pencil works great for my skimpy brows.

Next up Burt’s Bees lip shimmer in Caramel.  Regular price $4.99, I paid $3.99.  This is a great balm to use under lipstick or just by itself. Plus it tastes like peppermint, so it freshens your breath.

L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Eye Balm This is a new product for me. It’s rated well on Ulta’s website. Regular price $19.99, I paid $13.59.

Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner I had two buy one get one free coupons. I love this brand.  It’s so affordable and hey, how can you beat buy one get one free times two!

Last but not least, my new favorite mascara L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara OMG people, this is some of the best mascara I have ever used. Regular price $9.99, I paid $3.59 each!

So not only does it pay to clip coupons, but being a Ulta rewards member rocks!

Wet n Wild Photofocus Concealer review

Happy Sunday! First off I want to commend Wet n Wild for being a cruelty free brand. Given the fact this brand is so affordable and cruelty free, makes me love this brand even more.  Gone are the days of Wet n Wild being the brand you avoided at the drug store. Now people gravitate towards this brand with their wide variety of items and on trend products.

I recently purchased Wet n Wild Photofocus Concealer in light ivory from Walmart for a whopping $3.93!  I have tried many concealers over the years. High end along with many drug store brands.  My most recent favorite was Maybelline Age Rewind, which was my new favorite, until now.  I saw the Wet n Wild  concealer on my favorite vlogger channel, the GlamGuru by Tati Westbrook.

Here’s the description from Walmart’s website:

Let your natural beauty shine with our selfie-tested creamy and luminous concealer. Tested to be white cast-free under seven different photo lighting conditions, this high coverage concealer allows only your best features to get noticed. Gorgeous skin will be your only look.

  • White cast-free under seven different photo lighting conditions, this high coverage concealer allows only your best features to get noticed.
  • Instantly brightens and perfects appearance of skin – Conceals imperfections, dark spots and blemishes
  • Gentle enough to use on the delicate under eye area – Formulated with light-diffusing pigment
  • Delivers lightweight, buildable coverage

The coverage is amazing!  It barely creases under my eyes, (I have a lot of  under eye lines) and lasts all day.  Before I starting using this product, I was using two concealers. One under my eyes, and one on my nose.  For my daily make up, I just use under eye concealer and concealer on my nose, no foundation.  This concealer is fabulous!

I have never paid this little for such an awesome product. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Review

Happy Hump day!  This is a great product for tan looking legs, in an instant!  Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs at Ulta for $12.99. I’ve been using self tanner for over 40 years.  I still can’t seem to get it right on my feet.  I’m fairly pale, so getting the color right is never easy.  I used Light Glow.

I remember my mother using an Avon product in the 1960’s that was similar to this.  She sold Avon, and was always trying new products.  She was a redhead, so she didn’t tan.

Avon leg make up 6-14-17

It worked really well, as she had very nice legs.  Here’s some info from the Ulta website:

Tanning and pantyhose are so yesterday. Now you can give your legs a makeover in just seconds. No sun. No salon. No streaks. Just flawless looking, irresistible, sexy legs. This light-weight leg makeup, enriched with palmaria extract, enhances the coverage of freckles, veins and imperfections. Helps stimulate microcirculation for healthier and firmer looking legs and feet. Plus it’s water and transfer resistant. Bare legs are nice. Airbrush Legs are irresistible.

Here are the instructions:

Shake well. Spray directly into hand and apply on legs. Blend evenly and completely. Allow to set for 60 seconds before dressing. Removes easily with soap, water and a washcloth.

The first time I used it, was as above. The second time I merely sprayed it directly on my legs, and spread it around.  I put my foot on my washcloth over the tub, as it does go everywhere.  It was easy to clean up, and looks great.

You get 4.4 ounces and I showered with it on, and it didn’t come off.  It’s water resistant and really looks natural. It does not come off on your clothes.  I will definitely be purchasing this again.

Zenni Optical glasses review

Hello all my optically challenged WordPress friends! I’ve been wearing glasses for 35 years. I recently bought some glasses with our vision insurance, and they cost $300! With insurance! They were just okay. I couldn’t see my computer at work, so I took them back. I recently ordered some glasses from Zenni Optical. I bought a pair four years ago, and they were great.

The new pair I got have clip on sun shades.You can not tell that these sun shades clip on. They are magnetized at the temple, so your glasses won’t get scratched. I can’t believe the deal I got. The great thing about Zenni is you can try the glasses on virtually. These glasses were spot on as far as how they fit. I don’t have to get them adjusted either! They don’t carry any designer frames, but who cares! It took about 10 days to get my glasses. They came with a hard plastic case and a lens cleaning cloth.

Here’s the low down on what I purchased:

Frames $35.95-included sun shade
Beyond UV 1.61 High Index Progressive no-line Multifocal lenses $73.95
Standard blue anti-reflective coating-Free
Extra clip on sunshade $5.95
Phone number engraved on inside arm-$1.95
Shipping $4.95
Total-$122.75

OMG! The price for the glasses I took back would have been $755 without insurance.

Xenni helps you select the right lenses based on your prescription.

These glasses are super lightweight, and really thin with the sun shades being very dark. My glasses would look like Coke bottles otherwise. My selfie skills suck, but you get the idea.

P.S. I took these photos after a beer or three. LOL!

TREsemme’ Expert Repair & Protect 7 Pre Styling Spray Review

Happy Mother’s Day!  I recently purchased Tresemme Expert Repair & Protect Pre-Styling Spray for less than $5 at Walmart.  I first read about it in “O” magazine, if Oprah Winfrey is recommending it, I’m all in.  I have naturally curly, fine hair.  As I’ve gotten older, my hair has become a frizzy mess. Being in menopause doesn’t help.

Here’s a description from Walmart’s website:

Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray with Biotin

Why use the Pre-Styling Spray?
Our Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray is an essential step to help maximize styling results and protect hair from damage. The professional-quality formula is designed to help shield hair from heat, prevent split ends, and to leave hair smooth and shiny. Your hair is left protected and ready for you to keep on styling for the look you want! TRESemme Expert Selection Repair & Protect 7 Pre- Styling Spray:

  • Professional-quality formula, with Biotin, protects hair from heat and helps prevent breakage and split ends
  • Makes hair more manageable and maximizes the results of your styling routine
  • Light-weight conditioning formula allows you to layer styling products on top
  • Safe to use on color-treated hair
  • Use as the final, essential step of the Repair & Protect 7 system, it helps protect against 7 different types of damage – brushing, blow-drying, bleaching, coloring, curling, flat-ironing and braiding.

I have to say this is an amazing product.  I use it along with mousse, and it really makes my hair soft and less frizzy.  I was in a hurry recently and forgot to use it, and just used mousse. Dang, won’t be doing that again. It’s 4.2 ounces and I use 7 pumps for my shoulder grazing length. I have always liked the Tresemme brand, and they are always coming out with great new products.  I’ve used salon products, and this is comparable for a fifth of the price.

Thanks for stopping by.
