at the end of the year i decided to finally take the plunge and try moroccan oil for my hair. i realize this is all very 2007 to the rest of you, but when i find a product i like, i tend to stick with it. and since i don't like a lot of different products laying around, particularly in my oh so teeny tiny bathroom, that holds even more true. and i had hair products that i liked. but after always wondering if this would work, i decided to order the smallest bottle i could and try it out. i've been using it for over a month now, the bottle isn't halfway done, and i'm a total believer. my hair is absolutely softer and healthier. 2007 - you were right. this product is the bomb.
|i got mine here on amazon.|
next is a new mascara i've been using - when i went to visit the boy for new year's eve i conveniently forgot my bag of make-up behind. i mean, who wears make-up on new year's eve? so overrated. but, aiming to not look like a scrub on the holiday, i headed down to the local Price Chopper (yes, that's the name of the grocery store), and decided on this mascara.
a friend recently gifted me with a maybelline mascara from their volume express line (still in that forgotten bag of make-up sitting in my apartment), so i decided to do a little comparison and buy a different version from the line. and i love this one. the first couple of times it's a bit much (one coat will do the trick), but from there on out it's smooth sailing. and yes, it really does do a good job of separating your lashes - the best i've ever seen so far. i normally wear dior mascara - i bought it with a gift certificate from sephora in high school and was hooked - but this is clearly a more affordable option. we'll see if i go back.
any new discoveries to share in the new year readers? beauty, or otherwise, i'd love to hear about it.
