Paul Mitchell Super Clean Sculpting Gel


So I have naturally curly hair that needs to have product in it to look good. But when it comes to hair products, I am quite picky. When my hair is curly I expect the curls to be soft and perfectly sculpted and thanks to Paul Mitchell, I can make that happen! I have tried many brands like Deva Curl, Garnier Fructis, Aussie, Bed Head, Big Sexy Hair, and random drugstore brands but NOTHING compares to this gel!

If you are looking for non-crunchy, soft, natural looking curls, I totally recommend you at least try this gel! Once you fall in love with it you can pick up the huge bottle like me! It will take me a long time to go through all of this gel and the pump is SO convenient! Definitely gets an A+ in my book!

I recently picked up a few nail polishes and I thought I'd share them with you all! First up is Sephora's Myrtille. I LOVE the color, but the formula is quite thick and semi hard to work with. Also, the polish started chipping the 3rd day with even with a base AND top coat! Next is the almighty Chanel Jade look a like, Milani's Dress Maker. Personally, I don't think the color is THAT great. It's quite subtle and soft, but I guess that's just not my style! My favorite of the bunch is Essie's Sew Psyched. It is the PERFECT military green for fall nails. It photographs darker than it actually is, but trust me, its gorgeous!

Here are the swatches. From left to right- Dress Maker, Sew Psyched, Myrtille.(Don't mind my smudged middle finger!)

CCO Haul


It has been my mission to hunt down any CCO that is within any sort of distance of me. Whether I'm on vacation, taking a day trip or just in the mood to shop I make it a point to find the nearest Cosmetic Company Outlet. I'm pretty sure I've been to 4 different CCO's within the past 2 months! lol. So sad. Anyways, luckily I've come across some great finds!

Ever since I got a hold of the Dirty greasepaint stick I've been hunting for more. The CCO's are great place to find them because you a) get them cheaper and b) find colors that have been discontinued. I picked up Lucky Jade (light green) and Taupographic (brown/golden). I also have been loving Estee Lauder lipsticks. They have great color payoff and are very moisturizing. I picked up Honey Rose (coral/mauve) and Perfect Pink (semi-bright pink). The two MAC eyeshadows are Smoke & Diamonds (shimmery grey) and Mink & Sable (golden green). And let me tell you I am OBSESSED with both of them. They even look great when you wear them together! Lastly, I picked up my first MAC dazzleglass. The only reason I bought this color (She-Zam) was because it reminded me of the Sparklicious dazzleglass that sold out from the Alice & Olivia collection (which I totally wanted!).
Here are the swatches!

From Top to Bottom:
Smoke & Diamonds- MAC Eyeshadow
Mink & Sable- MAC Eyeshadow
Taupographic- MAC Shadestick
Lucky Jade- MAC Shadestick
Honey Rose- Estee Lauder Lipstick
Perfect Pink- Estee Lauder Lipstick
And on the far right of my hand....
She-Zam- MAC Dazzleglass

Here is a comparison of Estee Lauders Honey Rose and MAC's Jazzed. I LOVE Honey Rose because to me, is 10x more of a wearable coral than Jazzed.
Honey rose is on top & Jazzed is on the bottom

See anything you like?!
