Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set

Hey Lovelies,

Today I want to share with you a possible christmas gift for the lip lover in your life.  I recently got the Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set in Trophy Wife during the Sephora VIB Sale. I have wanted to try the Huda Beauty Liquid Lipsticks for awhile so I thought here was my chance. This is a Sephora exclusive set.

In this video I shared my thoughts and there's a demo as well!




I was a bit disappointed in the longevity of this lipstick. It is not long lasting at all, which is really disappointing. If I had a drink of water it would be gone.  I do not like touching up my lipstick all day. It's super annoying.  I would not repurchase the full sizes of these products. Once they're gone they are gone. It's not my favourite liquid lipstick brand.

You can see in this photo how it is already starting to fade in the centre of my lips.  Below is a photo of the Kat Von D Contour Set which is much more pigmented.


xoxo,
Jasmine

Samples Source Fall 2016

As Kanye West once said, "The Best Things in Life Are Free" and I would have to agree with him. I recently received my Fall Sample Source. For those who don't know Sample Source is a sampler package jam packed with various samples. Sample Source sends out samples twice a year. These are various sample, I have received everything from tampons to dog food to nasal strips. I love these packages because they expose me to so many different products.

For those who don't know I am very frugal. I love a deal, and samples so I don't have to waste my money on boring things like laundry soap, or dishwasher tablets.  This is why I love sample source. Sample Source also has VIP offers throughout the year.

To find out what I received check out here



I definitely recommend you sign up for sample source.  This is available to Canadians and Americans.

Tricky Hair Extensions New 3D Mink Lashes!

Every Girl needs a good pair of lashes. Lashes can make you look like a whole different person. I was recently given the opportunity to review these lashes from Tricky Hair Extensions.  What better time to wear them out for the first time than at a local Dragshow? Even the Drag Queens were jealous of these lashes.


What I liked about these lashes were how they were lashes were all different lengths to give me the perfect wisp. I've never worn lashes like that and it complimented my almond eye shape. The band was small and the lashes were very easy to apply. The packaging was adorable as well. Make sure to have eyelash glue on hand because they do not come with any. I like Duo eyelash glue. I can't wait to see what other styles they come out with because I loved these!

Kismet Essentials Coco Rinse

Hi Lovelies,
I was recently given the opportunity to review the Kismet Essentials 14 Day Oil Pulling Kit.
Oil Pulling something I have always wanted to try.  My oral care is super important, I recently went back to the dentist after not going for a few years, I will not making that mistake again. Anyway, recently I have been brushing, flossing, and now oil pulling daily!

Kismet Essentials is an up and coming Canadian oil pulling company. They sent me their 14 Day Oil Pulling Kit.  The Coconut Oil is infused with Mint to keep your breath nice and clean. I have to admit the texture is very strange. If you are a person that does not like slimy textures you probably won't want to try this. While swishing this around, I will watch a quick youtube video or check my social media to distract me and it goes by very quickly. Since oil pulling my gums are healthier, my teeth were pretty white anyway, but they are still white, and my breath smells fresher.

The 14 Day Kit will run you $29.99 with $10 worldwide shipping. If you consistently oil pull I recommend you subscribe to the monthy box for $25.99.

What Oil Pulling Does For You:
  • Whiter Teeth
  • Fresher Breath
  • Improved Digestion             
  • Reduced Headaches
  • Cleaner Tongue and Mouth
  • Better Immune System
  • Healthier Gums
  • Reduced Plaque
  • Clearer, Softer Skin               
  • Improved Skin Conditions (Eczema, Psoriasis etc)
  • Balanced Hormones
I asked my dental hygienist about oil pulling and she agreed it will benefit your teeth. It will not heal cavities and work dental miracles but it is definitely something good to do for your oral care and your body. 


XOXO,
Jasmine

But First Coffee #OOTD

Say What? I'm Back with a fashion post. I know it's been forever and I apologize to those who used to enjoy my outfit posts. I was really focusing on my youtube channel but then I thought why not do both? I love fashion and beauty. Stay tuned for youtube lookbooks which I be filming soon.


Anyway, today's look was a casual look for me. I wore this to work for casual day. It was so funny because some people commented they have never seen me in sneakers before. I wanted to wear an outfit that focused on my new Yeezy inspired sneakers. This shirt speaks to me so much. My morning routine is First Coffee...


Shirt: Urban Planet
Jeans: Forever21
Sneakers: Ardene

Xtava Pro Infrared Straightener

<a href="http://www.tomoson.com/?code=TOP1985c975a0358f955d502b0582095005" rel="nofollow"><img style="display: none" src="http://www.tomoson.com/images/front/pixel.png" /></a>
Straightening my hair has been something I have been doing since the beginning of time... well my life. I have went through many straighteners, some good and others not so much. I recently was sent this Pro Satin Infrared Straightener.

Some of the reasons the things I like about this straightener are:

  • The packing is very sleek and modern. I love anything matte
  • It heats up very quickly
  • It has a variety of temperatures heating up to a max of 465F.
  • It leaves my hair looking silky and shiny.  I have black girl hair. This does not happen often.
You can find this straightener on amazon: http://bit.ly/1q3iuAU
I was sent this product for review purposes only.
