Amazing Skin Products You Can Find at Urban Outfitters

I adore finding new products that I've never heard of before.  Call it a gift but I can shop anywhere and seemingly find something beauty-related that is absolutely awesome.

I will say that Urban Outfitters sells some really great products, by cool companies, for relatively good prices.  I have found some fantastic moisturizers, salt sprays, masks and glosses that are in constant rotation on my vanity table.  Here are some of my favorite skin care items you can find at UO...

Fig and Yarrow Spring Facial Herbal Steam - This stuff is amazing!  Just add some hot water to this blend, hover over it with a towel covering your head and enjoy a deep pore cleansing.

TonyMoly Fruit Hand Cream - Not only are the cases adorable but the scents are glorious.  I can't use these at work (as we have a no-scent policy) but at home, these are my favorite.

The Gnarley Whale Beach Waves Hair Spray  - This picture is showing Mango scent BUT the Thai Coconut scent is my favorite.  This spray moisturizes your locks while giving you beachy, boho waves that every one wants for summer.

The Face Shop Smile Peeling Foot Mask - With summer just around the corner, you'll want to treat your feet to a foot mask.  This one is the bomb because it's inexpensive and your feet will be so smooth after using it.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil - This used to be my go to cleanser.  Truly, it did. I love facial oils and loved how clean my skin was after using it.  Best thing about it is you don't need to use water to remove it!  So no drying your skin out.

SkinFood Rice Mask - This mask is super moisturizing and will make your skin glow after just one use.  It's a bit thick but your skin will love you for using it!

What are your favorite products from Urban Outfitters??

Get Summer Hair Ready - Hair Prep 101

Summer Hair Prep

Is your hair ready for summer?

Everyone's hair routine is completely different, especially for summer, but if there is anything  I can share it's called CONDITIONING.

Deep conditioning, especially in the summer, is the best thing you can do because your hair is naturally going to dry out due to the sun.  By increasing the moisture in your hair, you can prevent breakage, overdrying, and even split ends.

Another tip, STOP shampooing!  Not permanently of course, but try to limit your shampooing to twice a week.  Instead of shampooing, try conditioning only.  Your hair will feel like a million bucks, I swear.

What are some of your favorite summer hair tips??

Glorious Lips: Revlon's Lip Cube and Elizabeth Arden's Gloss

I have an unhealthy obsession with lip products.  Gloss, sticks, balms, tints - it doesn't matter the product, I still have to have it.

My family and friends are very aware of this which is why, for my recent birthday, I was lip-spoiled!

Among some other major awesome gifts, (a beautiful key necklace, gift cards, tea and some tear-worthy notes/cards) I was given the Elizabeth Arden Sunkissed Pearl Lip Gloss Trio and Revlon's Super Lustrous Lip Cube .  Both sets contain AMAZING colors I can't wait to show you.

Revlon's Lip Cube contains 9 different shades all of which give you silky smooth color.  I am addicted to wine and berry colors right now so am using about 3 almost everyday.  Here are the colors...

From left to right, the colors are Iced Amethyst, Coffee Bean, Blushed, Softsilver Rose, Love That Red, Blushing Mauve, Wine With Eveything, Rum Raisin and Champagne on Ice.

Look at the color though! Great coverage and gorgeous color.  I am currently wearing Rum Raisin, one of my favorites.

The Elizabeth Arden set has actually surprised me quite a bit.  I am not usually a wearer of Elizabeth Arden but Allan picked up this set for me and I was blown away by the gorgeous shades of gloss.

From left to right, the colors are Pink Pearl, Coral Pearl and Berry Pearl.  These colors are so multifaceted that they instantly glow and shimmer upon contact with your lips.  They also contain something called "Maxi-Lip" which instantly plump the lip to give the appearance of a more full pout.

I wanted to show you the Pink Pearl color.  Of course, my favorite one is Berry Pearl but for a true pink, this gloss is absolutely stunning.

What do you think of the colors?  What can you see as being a color you'd like to try?

What's In Your Ipsy Bag??? April's AMAZING Glam Bag

I wasn't too happy with my last couple of Ipsy Glam Bags.....and then April's came.

Seriously, I don't think I can be any happier with this bag of goodies!!  Not only is it called "Beautifully Bohemian" but I got a full-sized makeup product...YAY!!

In my bag, I received (from left to right) a Jor'el Parker Femina mini roller fragrance, an Essence Lash Princess Mascara, Theorie Argan Oil Hair Serum, Starlooks Lip Gloss and, finally, a theBALM Nude Dude Mini Eyeshadow in Fit.

I am the happiest girl ever!  For those that don't know, Ipsy is a monthly subscription (that you can cancel at anytime) that sends you 5 mini beauty products in a cool makeup bag each month.  For us Canadians, the price is $15 CAD plus tax.  Super cheap if you ask me.  If you're interested in signing up, here's my unique link to do so - https://www.ipsy.com/r/2f0uy

Beauty Haul: Flower Cosmetics by Drew Berrymore

I posted about Drew's makeup line eons ago and, for some reason, it's taken me this long to purchase any of the products.  I know, weird, right?

Last week I made a trip to Walmart (where this line is exclusively sold) and picked up a few items.  Not only is the price point decent (think $11 for a loose face powder and $8 for a lip stick) but the colors available are pretty good.  I will say that I expected a bigger line of products in store but it could be that I was shopping in Canada.  (The website does seem stocked with a lot of items).

I picked up (from left to right) Sheer Up Lip Tint in Airy Orchid, Lip Suede Velvet Lip Chubby in Berry-More, Kiss Stick Luxury Lip Color in Berry Bloom, Powder Up Loose Powder in Shade L01 and Intensif-Eye Intense Black Volumizing Mascara.  As you all know I am beyond obsessed with berry lip colors right now (hence the similarity in all my chosen colors) but I am most excited to try the mascara.  It has a 3-way brush that allows for buildable lash volume.  I can't wait to try it out!

Cute little loose powder container right?  Love the packaging.

Colors, from left to right, are Airy Orchid, Berry-More, and Berry Bloom.

All in all, I am looking forward to trying out all the items.  Will take pics soon once I am wearing them all together...

Has anyone tried this line before?  What are your thoughts?

Favorite Trend: Granny Hair

Grey Hair Trend

I don't quite have the guts to dye my hair grey BUT man, I am beyond obsessed with this look.  In fact, my sister, a cool hair stylist from Calgary, has officially gone granny-grey and tinted her hair lilac as well.  It looks amazing and I truly wish I had the balls to pull this look off.

But, for now, I will continually look at it from afar.  Speaking of looking, here are some of my favorite pictures of this trend right now.

What are your thoughts of this new trend?  How do you feel about going grey/silver??
