drybar Extend Your Blowout Kit Review

Drybar is a luxury haircare brand sold at Sephora and they also have their own dry "bars"; basically a bar where you get beautiful blowouts. There are 57 locations throughout the US (which you can find here) and I'm super jealous there isn't one close to me. Then again I should be thankful because then my pockets would be empty from getting blowouts all the time! 

They are known for having their statement bright yellow products which I love! It makes their brand really stand out. I was really excited when I got the opportunity to test out their products and I was NOT disappointed. I've heard so many great things about this brand and all the reviews I've heard held true. 

I received the Extend Your Blowout Kit which I am sooo thankful for because I found some holy grail products. The kit is priced at just $29 and it's a $52 value! It includes a brush, a travel size dry shampoo, a travel size dry conditioner (that's right, I said dry conditioner), and a cute shower cap to preserve your blowout. 


The travel size dry shampoo & dry conditioner are 1.3 oz and perfect size to throw in your purse for on the go. 

The dry shampoo is used to soak up oils when you're on that second or third day hair. It keeps your hair looking like it was just freshly washed and blown out. It smells so good too; like a clean scent. I've been looking for a dry shampoo (that actually works) for awhile! I've tried a few but none of them actually work. They all leave my hair feeling even more gross than it did natural with the oils or they don't smell good. This one gives me the best of both worlds by smelling good and doing it's job. 

The dry conditioner is probably what I'm most excited about. I've heard of dry shampoo before, but never have I heard of a dry conditioner and let me tell youuuu - my hair NEEDS some conditioning. Lately, I don't know if it was the cold weather or what, but my hair has been SUPER dry. The minute I spray this all over my hair it feels revived. It's super softening and smoothing and it also makes it 100 times easier to run my fingers through. It also claims to help detangle which I completely agree with. I seriously need a full size of this (or 3) in stock in my bathroom so I can douse my hair in this every day.    

This brush is also travel size which is, again, perfect to throw in your bag on the go. I love that it's bright yellow and it detangles very well without tearing a bunch of strands out. I have that issue a lot with brushes where they tug at my hair and rip out more strands than need be. This one is gentle and so cute!

The last thing in the kit is a shower cap. It's lined with a nice material, not just plastic. So it feels comfortable while it's on. I love the cute small "db" detailing all over it. It keeps out all the moisture when you're taking a shower so you can save that blowout for more than a day!

Overall if you're looking to try out the brand as a whole or you just need some traveling hair tools, this kit is PERFECT!

Amazing Cosmetics Perfection Stick Review & Giveaway!

Color correcting may be all the rage for 2016, but lets not forget that contouring and highlighting ruled 2015 and hasn't gone anywhere. I have a set of these myself already so I figured I could do a give away for my followers! The winner will receive all 4 brand new perfection sticks 2 with boxes and 2 without (I can't find the other 2 boxes): Fair, Medium, Tan and Deep.

These perfection sticks make it much easier to draw your contour lines to get that chiseled to perfection look and the lighter colors are perfect for highlighting the under eye. You can also use these to conceal any blemishes or redness; a real multitasker.

Amuse Bouche Lipsticks by Bite Beauty


I had a surprise on my doorstep last week and it was a box from Influenster! If you don't know what Influenster is, basically when you sign up you answer your "Snaps" which are just questions about things you've tried before, what you like, etc. It's not always about makeup, though. Sometimes it's food, other times it's electronics. The more active you are and the more points you have the more likely you are to get what they call their "VoxBox". I was randomly selected but I was sooo excited when I found out it was a Bite Beauty VoxBox. If you've followed me for awhile you know that Bite Beauty lip products are my jaaaammmm. You can also review products on Influenster. 

They sent 3 of Bite Beauty's new Amuse Bouche lipsticks. The shades they sent are Pepper, Gazpacho, and Beetroot. They are all stuunnnninnngg and so pigmented! I didn't expect anything less from Bite, though. My favorite out of the three is, of course, Pepper because it's a neutral shade. I'm all about those nudes. 

The packaging is sleek per usual with matte grey, almost rubber like feel to it. I don't know how to describe it but I love it. I also love the "B" imprint in the actual lipstick as well as the "bite" at the bottom of the tube. It's the little details that matter. 

The formula is very comfortable and hydrating. They have a slight sheen to them. I literally want to purchase every nude shade from this line!
