    Broadway Nails Real Life

    Totally Worth the Cost!

    I never thought I'd ever consider wearing "press on" nails, but after having my nails damaged by wearing tips/acrylic during college, and then most recently going backstage during Fashion Week to discover that the nail looks for each show are quickly changed by using a pre-designed nail that can be easily applied and removed, I decided to give this nail kit a try. The directions are very easy to follow and it only took a few minutes to apply the nails. You simply apply glue to the artifical nail and press on to your natural nail. Very easy! I used the "Real Short" length kit and felt that the look was very natural. While these aren't something I'd wear everyday- just my personal preference, I'd definitely consider them for "special occasions". Oh, and did I mention that they're totally worth the cost?!

  • L'Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze ProPerfect Airbrush Self-Tanning Mist

    If you're wanting an instant tan and can get help with the application, then this might be the product for you. After using this I saw my tan develop in about 30 minutes. My only issues with this product were that even though it's a "mist" application, I still felt it hard to apply evenly to my back and the back of my legs. After about an hour, you will immediately see the areas you missed, so I suggest asking a friend for help! My other issue was the DHA (dihydroxyacetone is the active ingredient that interacts with the skin to produce the change in color) scent. Maybe my nose is super sensitive, but I smelled it almost immediately. I've tried my fair share of self-tanners over the years, so I'm very familiar with the "funky self-tanner scent"- so much so that I immediately recognize it on other people who are wearing self-tanners with the scent. Anyway, I do know people who aren't bothered by it, and some who don't smell it at all. This might be worth a try if you're looking for a tan in a matter of minutes!

  • L'Oreal Paris Ideal Skin Genesis Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 Lotion

    I was recently given the opportunity to try L'Oreal's Skin Genesis Daily Moisturizer Oil-Free Lotion, and because I loved the Daily Treatment Serum Concentrate- I gladly accepted! I've been using this both in the morning (under my sunscreen since it doesn't contain SPF) and at night and have found that my skin both feels smooth and looks hydrated. I have an oily t-zone, so I can appreciate the fact that this is lightweight and oil-free. It contains an anti-aging molecule called Pro-Xylane, which strengthens and tones skin cells which is great for preventing fine lines and wrinkles. And since my undergraduate degree is in Chemistry, I totally appreciate the fact that L'Oreal uses an environmentally safe process called Green Chemistry to extract Pro-Xylane from the beech wood plant. Pro-Xylane is easily absorbed into the environment and is non-toxic and biodegradable. An investment in this product is totally worth it's price and you know you're worth it!

  • L'Oreal Paris Ideal Skin Genesis Daily Treatment Serum Concentrate

    So everyone knows how much I love serums if you've been keeping up with the blog. After seeing the new ad campaign for L'Oreal's Skin Genesis featuring Penelope Cruz, and her flawless skin, I finally decided to try the Daily Treatment Serum Concentrate. It's formulated to strengthen and tone skin cells, and brighten your complexion. It also contains an anti-aging molecule called Pro-Xylane. Since I was formally trained as a chemist, I can truly appreciate the fact that L'Oreal uses an environmentally safe process called Green Chemistry to extract Pro-Xylane from the beech wood plant. Pro-Xylane is easily absorbed into the environment- non-toxic and biodegradable. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this product. For me to try a new product, means incorporating it into my skincare regimen, which means I'm substituting it for something I'm already in love with. I have normal skin, with an oily t-zone, and I'm cautious about trying new products. I've been using this serum at night and every morning I've been running to the bathroom to see the results. Visible results every morning! Soft, smooth and glowing skin! It's an excellent drugstore brand and I recommend it! L'Oreal's Skin Genesis Daily gets my "Sexy, Healthy, Beautiful" stamp of approval!

    Davines Wizards No.10 Universal Polishing Coat

    Another Great Finishing Product!

    So as I've mentioned before I love Davines and that includes the range of finishing products too! This is great for after flat-ironing. Helps to smooth the frizzies and add shine- but you only need a little. Not greasy- that is if you're not over-using it.

    Davines LOVE Smoothing Shampoo

    My Favorite Davines Product!

    Love, love, love this shampoo! Can't understand why the conditioner isn't listed as well?? Anyway, I've put my time in as a shampoo girl and when I had the chance and depending on the client's hair texture, I always loved using this shampoo! Loved the smell and the end results were always soft, tangle-free hair. This is my favorite Davines product!!!!!

    Davines Defining Shine Drops

    Love this serum!

    Great finishing product! You just need the size of a pea if not smaller! You can also use it as a blow-drying serum depending on the hair texture. Great shine! I love Davines products!

  • Mizani Cutting Solution

    Mizani Cutting Solution

    Great Cutting Solution!

    This is great because instead of having to constantly re-wet hair with your water bottle, this keeps it wet while conditioning. I used to just use a leave-in conditioner for cutting, but now I have this! Great invention!

  • Mizani Foam wrap

    Mizani Foam wrap

    Great for Roller-Setting!

    For those of you who like soft, loose curls- try this. Very light, absorbs easily and doesn't flake. You can use for roller-setting or for wraps under a hooded dryer.

  • Wella Color Touch 3D Color Effects

    I've used Color Touch as a toner after color services- right after shampooing and before conditioning. A great booster for previously colored hair and also a great way to add shine. Always helped me get to the desired end color- no issues at all. I highly recommend.
