Best Curl Ever!!!! “The Sultra – Bombshell”

I feel like one of the most searched things on youtube is probably “how to curl my hair like Kim Kardashian” or any Kardashian sister for that matter. And no offense but all of the tutorials don’t ‘REALLY’ give you that kardashian curl, I am waiting for the day the real Kardashian sisters make a hair tutorial for us all (PLEASE GIRLS!) until then… I will get you pretty damn close! Introducing the “Bombshell Rod Curling Iron”! from Sultra!

Yah ok so it’s not new or anything but it’s so amazing that I am finally getting around to posting about it! I got mine at Sephora… for $130; yes this seems like quite a price tag to some, but trust me it’s worth it! I have sold it to 5 people at my work already even those that swear their hair doesn’t hold curls. Before this when I used a curling iron I would get maybe an hour if I was lucky but with the Sultra I get day to night, and if I sleep properly, TWO days!

My advice:Buy this curling rod NOW!

Step 2: Watch the tutorial videos on the Sephora website and youtube (I watched them more then 5 times)

Step 3: Practice at least once before making your debut! & try a few different ways!

Like with anything practice makes perfect, and one of my biggest pet peeves is when people give something a bad review because they don’t know how to use something. Put on the pink glove (ALWAYS wear the glove, you are NOT cooler then the pink glove sorry), wrap your hair around the barrel, slowly release the curl and HOLD IT FOR A FEW SECONDS in the glove to let the hair cool before you let it go. DONE! not that hard….but yes maybe practice once or twice.

I feel confident enough in this thing to promise you if your hair ‘never’ hold curls it will with this thing! I get SO MANY compliments (my hair is naturally beautiful but this helps too *wink ).

Last word of peace to my praise… This is the closest you will get to the Kardashian curl without being a Kardashian yourself! Good luck folks!!! & Happy curling!

On a side note… I am thinking about trying the ‘top styler’ curling shells? Anyone try them? Leave me comments!

Kat Von D — Master Her Makeup

Since starting this blog one of my most viewed blog posts is about how much I love Kat Von D. Everyone wants to know where she buys her clothes, who makes her shoes, where she got her shades… and of course what kind of makeup she wears! Well HER OWN of course! I may not be able to answer all of the above questions but I can tell you that her new makeup line for Sephora is as hot as she is…

Ever wanted to look as glam as Kat Von D? Well here’s your chance…

Sephora has teamed up with Kat Von D, tattoo artist, reality-TV star, and owner of High Voltage Tattoo, to produce this edgy color collection that “exemplifies old-Hollywood glamour with an L.A. vibe. From pin-up perfection to rocker chic, this limited-edition lineup allows you to tap into your bad-girl side and unleash your inner artist.”

Complete the perfect pin-up smoky eye with the ‘Rock n’ Roll Eyeshadow Duo’ for $20, the Autograph Eyeliner in ‘Puro Amor’ or ‘Black Metal Love’ for $16 and that bright red perfect pucker in ‘Hellbent’ for $18… hell top it off with a gloss while your at it ( maybe ‘Rocker’ $18 ) 😉 $48 will get you the tool application kit perfect for all makeup application! Don’t forget to check out the Eyeshadow palette’s (I’m feeling ‘Beethoven’) $34 for eight shades!!!

Buy it here at Sephora… Before it’s gone… Did I mention Limited Edition!!!

Splurge For A Good Bronzer — Beauty Review

My opinion is that every girl should own bronzer and every girl should wear bronzer. Whether or not you need a lot of it, or a little, just using it for a simple cheek highlight, or an all over tanned look, bronzer makes a difference. If I get up in the morning and feel like total garbage, don’t feel like getting ready, don’t feel like dressing up or putting on make up, I might put on some sweats and some bronzer…then I’m decent enough to venture out into the public. It basically makes you not look dead! and thats always good right!??

I do believe that there is a difference between good and bad bronzer, and I don’t see a problem with spending a little more for a good one. Yes, there are some decent drugstore bronzers out there but why waste your time trying them all when you can buy a quality product right off the bat. Bad quality products can leave you with the caked on, un-blended, umpaloompa look, and that is one of my biggest pet peeves. Of course there is also a method to applying bronzer correctly so it doesn’t look like brown paint on your face ending at your neck.

My favorite bronzer:

Estee Lauder, Bronze Goddess – Soft Matte Bronzer $29.50

The compact is huge so it will last you a long time. The brush they provide you with is great for bronzing application, it allows for a even coat that can easily blend down the neck or into the cleavage 😉 You definitely get what you pay for with this product. I also have sensitive skin and some times get irritation and redness with bad product, no problems here!

My Beauty Review: A+

Estee Lauder

Other suggestion:

MAC Cosmetics Bronzing Powder $20.00, I like the ‘Refined Golden’ but, there are 5 great tones you can choose from.
