Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream

It's a hair miracle! I've discovered an amazing product with actual results. As noted by the title, I will be discussing, sharing and gushing over Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream. The latest and greatest product to be introduced into my hair routine. I guess I must explain my hair issues. Beginning with the lacking shine and dryness, my hair is no friend of mine. Constantly changing products in attempts to find the perfect hair potion is how I spend my weekends. Just kidding. That's just how I feel, using five products to achieve gorgeous hair just isn't cutting it. So when given the chance to try a new hair product, I'm quick to pounce.

Smooth Moves, what can I say? You really are smooth, frizz runs in fear. Just a small dab is all you need and when paired with a blow dryer, it's simply unstoppable! However, beware. Go overboard and use more than needed will result in white residue! Definitely not pretty but avoidable. All in all great frizz defender & smoothness provider while also adding a touch of shine. So be sure to pick yours up at either Walmart or Ulta for only $6! Highly recommend!

NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact

Color payoff, affordable and availability. The perfect trifecta achieved by NYC cosmetics with their new Individual Eyes custom Compact. The ideal palette for beginners or makeup collectors as it features your complete eye look in an easy go to palette. But are there any flaws or woes with this product? Well, it wouldn't be an honest review without a few. Beginning with the primer, this cute idea turns up sticky. Nevertheless, it works perfectly well with the shadows. Speaking of which are surprisingly pigmented! Who needs MAC when you can purchase this easy palette for only $4.99! Oh and did I mention, its available everywhere NYC products are sold. But let's get back to the topic at hand, although these shadows are pigmented there's too much fallout! Resulting in shadow overload and far from pretty as these end up in the primer and illuminator. A small yet significant detail. If that's not a problem then you'll love the included ”How To” instructions. Smoky eyes are bound to be in your future.
All in all great product, and price.

Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit

Lashes? Yes, please! It's no secret, I have a lash addiction so discovering new and different brands as well as products is my new favorite thing.
The Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit is one of them,and although I was completely excited to try it, I had my doubts. Kiss, isn't particularly a brand I would turn to for lashes but I'm happy to say; I will now turn to you. This kit has completely and utterly changed my opinion, for the quality of not only the product but the complete packaging is simply superb! This easy at home starter kit comes complete with eyelashes, glue and of course applicator so let's review!

As far as the lashes go, I think they're great. Neither flimsy nor stiff, definitely made with quality and human hair. Something I'm not entirely certain about, but I'll definitely do some research. Next is the Latex Free lash glue. Normally the glue provided with any lashes are well, not the best. It's nothing against the companies but often times it seems as though they focus solely on the quality of the eyelashes. Kiss takes a different approach. Their glue is mind blowing! I never expected the payoff and hold from a drugstore glue like this one. However it claims to dry clear, a claim that lacked results but no deal breaker. Lastly, the eyelash applicator. All I have to say is, for a beginner it's great. For someone more experienced, you definitely don't need this. Or at least, I didn't.
Overall, this kit is great for beginners or full blown experts, and you'll definitely want more.

Thanks for reading, be sure to purchase yours at your local Walmart for $4.99 , to learn more about the Kiss Ever Pro Starter Kit visit

Bath & Body Works Fall Mini Candle

The holidays are upon us! A simple yet well known fact, as noted by commercials, wardrobe & holiday theme candles. And although that's great, I'm no fan of candles, let alone holiday theme candles. However, Influenster's latest and greatest voxbox has featured the perfect one, Bath & Body Works' Pumpkin Cupcake! Or as I would call it, the mind changer. A simple yet comforting scent available in a cute mini. Perfect for work or home, this candle, supplies the ideal aroma perfect for cozy comfort. Priced at $3.50, Bath and Body Works Mini Candles sure do provide holiday spirit but as always, I find a flaw. Although its called Pumpkin Cupcake,it smells less like a pastry and more like cinnamon. No worries, this isn't a deal breaker, just an observation.Overall, this is the perfect touch to a cozy home. For more info on the other scents or about Bath & Body Works, visit

DETOX, It's Good!

In a world filled with lies and false promises, Natural beauty has never been more obtainable, introducing DETOX Skin Intervention. A completely natural skincare line aimed to ensure only the finest products with noticeable results. Produced mainly with Dead Sea Salt, this completely amazing discovery has tremendous credibility. As claims are everywhere but DETOX really does deliver. Take their Dead Sea Salt Mud mask for example which drastically improved my skin in only one use. Dealing with everything from my combination skin to breakouts, it's my absolute necessity. I simply don't want to live without it. So let's review!

Forget the days of dull skin, the Dead Sea Salt Mud Mask not only is Extremely smooth, but provides excellent results, and great on acne. Simply use as a spot treatment or all over and see the dramatic results. As far as moisture goes, the clear winner- Detox Moisturizing Lotion. Definitely lives up to the name, with its thick consistency you're guaranteed baby skin. Although this needs no companion a great prep for it is the Coffee Scrub. I've only used this once, but I did love the feel. However not more than the Dead Sea Salt Mud Mask. ;) But if you're in need of a trip? Why not take a trip to hydration land with the Hydration Lotion. You'll discover the ultimate must, as it's ideal for those of us with dry, rough skin. You'll feel a complete skin renewal. But why not purify as well with the Purifying Toner . Although meant for acne prone skin as well as other skin issues, I find it to be too strong. However, I love this on my eczema! Reduced redness and irritation within minutes. Highly recommend! If eczema isn't the issue, then let's talk Eye Revive ideal for fine lines and puffiness, and noticeably true. Lastly my all time favorite and current obsession, the Lip Therapy. I've talked about this before, it's all in all my go to lip balm. Dry, cracked lips stay away, you've meet your match!

Overall, I love their line and I don't even mind the smell. If you love the ocean, you'll love the fresh and lively scent these products carry.

Thanks for reading & a HUGE Thank You to DETOX owner, Heather. You're continued support and patience with this review has been outstanding. Also Happy Belated Birthday! Xoxo, MAKEmeUPLamour

Length and Volume Please

Ever crave doll lashes? I know, I do! Never fear, you're friendly Beauty Blogger is here. Discover long, voluminous lashes that you'll treasure and adore with Covergirl's Lash Blast 24hr Mascara. Ideal for any gal looking to score length and curl, with lasting power. But that's not all, this Mascara provides the perfect wand needed for separation and zero clumps. What more could you ask for? Runny mascara is no longer an issue, use alone or pair with another fave. However, this isn't without it's flaws. Beginning with the smell, definitely a powerful one. This usually makes me tear up, so if you hate overpowering products this sure is one to avoid. Not to mention the lifespan being quite short. Dries out quickly, something I definitely don't love. Lastly, the paraben issue. I'm currently trying to be absolutely paraben free and learning that this isn't, is definitely a blow. But all in all great product.

Thanks for reading, comment & or follow my blog :) xoxo, MAKEmeUPLamour
