I had such a great time last Sunday, co-hosting an event at Sephora Shortpump with Bumble and bumble., Mango Salon and other local bloggers. So many industry professionals were there, and my blogging buds and I got an excuse to get dressed up and hang. Mango had a talented team of stylists dry styling and giving expert hair advice. The line for mini-makeovers was out the door, and brand reps were dishing out some great bits of knowledge on new products to try and how to take your look to the next level. And of course, my handsome photographer came along a captured the whole event!
I walked away with some amazing products that I think you will love too:
This lipstick comes in the form of a gloss, but it turns into a super-matte pop of eye-catching color. It stayed on my lips forever and never smudged, smeared, leaked, or any of the other annoying things that lipsticks tend to do. I'd highly recommend this as your statement lip color.
The rep from Murad was so nice! We had a nice chat, and she explained each product in detail. We ended up with this anti-anging primer with SPF. Let me just tell you, this is not your ordinary primer. It feels like nothing I have ever felt on my skin before. Apparently Murad has a patent pending on this brilliant technology they've formulated to make their product feel like...bunny hair melted into a feather and mixed with angel dust. That's all I've got, but you have to try it for yourself. The stuff is the bees knees.
I love all of the products I got from Bumble, but this is the one I've begun using every day. Just like it sounds, it has a bit of a drying effect which is great for oily hair, and when you hold your hair up and spray as you let it fall, it gives a light, airy and voluminous look. My whole regimen now includes the Bb Curl Pre-style/Re-style Primer sprayed all over while wet, Bb Curl Defining Cream on the ends while wet. Mostly air-dry, then use a blowdryer on low setting with head upside down to gently dry around the scalp while lightly scrunching the curls (this keeps the hair at the scalp from being flat). I then wrap a few pieces at the top around a curling iron to give my hair more of a "finished" look. Lastly, I spray with the Dryspun Finish to complete.
***REAL HAIR TIP: My hair is naturally curly/wavy, but for those with hair that WILL NOT HOLD A CURL, spray dry shampoo on your hair before you curl. I use Big Sexy Volumizing Dry Shampoo, but most will have the same effect. I swear this will change your hair life.
