My Review on the Tresemme Expert Selection Max the Volume Root Lifting Cream 2015

Published February 21, 2015 by Nicole Ashley Fashion Blog

Hello Ladies,

Yesterday, I posted that I purchased the Tresemme Expert Selection Max the Volume Root Lifting Cream at Walgreens. My pros and cons of the product are:

Pros

– It is affordable

– I love how it gives volume to my hair

– I love how it does not make my hair oily

Cons 

– I don’t like the smell of this product. It smells like a mens product.

– When I blow dry it, it has this weird streak in my hair. You cannot see it, but my hair feels coarse. It does not feel oily, which is good, because I hate when products make my hair oily.

Overall, I do really like this product. I hope you all have a great one and I will talk to you all really soon!

Small February Sephora Haul and 2015

Published February 21, 2015 by Nicole Ashley Fashion Blog

Hello Ladies,

Today, I went to Sephora to purchase two makeup products. One makeup product that I purchased is the Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette. I really wanted to purchase the Too Faced Semi Chocolate Eyeshadow Palette, but I did not see it at my Sephora. I will be doing a review on that one once I use it. The next makeup product that I purchased is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. I did not know what shade to get because they did not have the lightest one to test. The one I purchased is in the shade Light 1 called Chantilly.  I hope this shade is the right one for me. Has anyone purchased these products? If so, do you like them? I hope you all have a great one and I will talk to you all really soon!

   

Small Walgreens Haul

Published February 20, 2015 by Nicole Ashley Fashion Blog

Hello Ladies,

Today, I went to Walgreens and I purchased some hair products, makeup wipes and bobby pins. One hair product that I purchased is the Tresemme Heat Protector Spray. When I went to try to spray it in my hair, the pump came off so easily. I tried to put it back in but it won’t go in. Another hair product that I purchased is the Tresemme Expert Selection Max the Volume Root Lifting Cream. I will do a first impressions on that one. The makeup product that I purchased is Say Yes to Cucumbers Makeup Remover. I really needed makeup  remover wipes so I decided to try this one. The next item that I purchased are Bobby Pins since I do not have any. Has anyone tried any Tresemme products? If so, did you like them? I hope you all have a great one and I will talk to you all really soon!

          

My Review on the Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum

Published February 16, 2015 by Nicole Ashley Fashion Blog

Hello Ladies,

On my previous post, I talked about purchasing this serum at Target. When I was at Target, I thought this serum was going to be a heat protector. But after reading the description on the back and on websites, I noticed that it is not a heat protector. It is supposed to be make hair shiny, cuts down drying time and frizz control. Here are my pros and cons of this product:

Pros

– I love how it is a pump. For me, when my hair is wet, I like to use a gel that is in a pump because if I want to use a dime size then it does not squeeze a lot. When it is in a container that you have to squeeze it out then it comes out a lot.

– I love how it makes my hair shiny.

– I love how it reduces drying time.

Cons

– Usually, I have oily hair but after using this product it is making my hair dry.

– Maybe this is just me, but I feel like the dandruff is a lot worse when I used this in my hair. When I tried my other hair serum, I do not have dandruff.

– It is 20 dollars and I feel like it is kind of expensive for a hair serum.

This is probably a product that is either hit or a miss and for me it is a miss. Has anyone else have this product? If so, do you like this one? Also, I am open to suggestions for a product that it is affordable, that it is a hair serum, that it is a heat protection, does not make hair oily, gives hair shine and it is a frizz control.

My Review on the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer 2015

Published February 15, 2015 by Nicole Ashley Fashion Blog

Hello Ladies,

Yesterday’s post, I talked about going to Target and purchasing the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in the colors light and fair. I did not know which shade looks good on my skin. So, I picked the fair shade which I thought would make my skin look orange and this shade is the right shade for me. I do not like when you cannot try on a tester to see if it is the right shade. Here are my pros and cons on this concealer.

Pros

– I love how it is affordable.

– I love how it looks like the Nars Concealer.

– I love how the applicator looks like the Nars one.

– I love how it is long wearing and you do not have to reapply it throughout the day.

Cons 

– I wish it was in a bigger container. Maybe this is just me, but I do not like when concealers are in a small container. I wear concealer everyday and I do not like it when it goes so quickly and you have to spend money on the same concealer.

Have any of you purchased this concealer? If so, do you like this one or not? I hope you all have a great one and I will talk to you all really soon!

February Target Haul 2015

Published February 14, 2015 by Nicole Ashley Fashion Blog

Hello Ladies,

Happy Valentine’s Day! Today, I went to Target. I purchased some makeup products and a hair serum. One makeup product that I purchased is the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I purchased two shades because I did not know which shade I am and they did not have a sample to test on my hand. I wish that you could test them on your hands because then I would not have had to purchase two shades. I have heard that this concealer is similar to the Nars one.  One shade is in light and the other one is in fair. The next makeup product is CoverGirl Lashblash Volume Mascara. I have heard amazing reviews on this one. Another makeup product is the NYX Butter Gloss in Vanilla Cream Pie. Also, I purchased it the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Lip Gloss in the color Istanbul. The hair serum that I purchased is the Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum that makes hair shiny and helps with frizz control. I wanted to purchase another hair serum for heat protection that helps with frizzy hair and makes it shiny. I will do a first impressions on all of these products. Stay tuned! Have any of you purchased these products at Target? Also, what are your favorite makeup products that you have purchased at Target? I would have to check them out next time I go there.
