New Beauty Products I'm Loving

Life has been VERY busy in the last month since I picked up a side job of making newsletters for a psychology website. It seems like I spend the majority of every weekday in my office chair in front of my laptop. I'm spending more time working than doing much of anything else, which has made for a suddenly boring blog. Not much time to do cool things and then take pictures of/write about said cool things. Hopefully I'll get the hang of this soon and find a better balance between working/living/blogging.

In the meantime, I have had time to make the occasional trip to London Drugs or 4th Ave for a random beauty product or two. Here are a few products I've gotten recently that I'm super pleased with:

Davines Melu Conditioner
I received a sample of this anti-breakage hair conditioner the last time I went into Canvas Salon for a haircut at the beginning of the summer. [As an aside, I've seen Quyen for haircuts at Canvas twice now and have been happy with the results each time.] The conditioner made my hair feel fan-freaking-tastic. I don't normally ever splurge on expensive hair products (or any products, really), but my hair has really been feeling like crap lately - dry, unhealthy, and breaking like crazy. So I headed up the hill to 4th Ave to scoop up a full sized version of this miracle conditioner for about $33 from Canvas.

Davine's Melu Conditioner, Mellow, Anti-Breakage Lustrous Conditioner
This conditioner makes my hair feel completely quenched - and SO much stronger and healthier. After shampooing, I just work a 4-finger-scoop of this Melu conditioner into the ends of my hair and then work it upwards, so that I end up using the least amount of product on the roots of my hair. Since our scalps are naturally oily, there's less need to use conditioner up there. I keep massaging the conditioner into my strands for a few minutes, then comb through it with a wide-toothed comb before rinsing it all out. And bam - instant hair model shit. I would definitely say this conditioner is worth the cost - I feel I've done my hair a huge fave.

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Gloss in Sunbaked
I got this lip gloss in my #blogvancity swag bag and it's one of my favorite items from the bag. It's a beautiful sunbaked berry color that is perfect for my skin tone for fall. This gloss has a really nice color pay off, though I do have to reapply every couple of hours - or after sipping on something.

I like the doe-foot applicator because you can adjust its width by rotating it, 
which makes application easier and more precise:

I love pairing Sunbaked with this other Revlon lip product I already owned - 
a Super Lustrous Lipstick in the color Blushing Mauve:

eos Pomegranate Raspberry Lip Balm
My eyes are always drawn to the eos lip balm displays in stores because there always seems to be a new flavor that I haven't seen before. After standing in front of the display at London Drugs for a few minutes, trying to decide between the Pomegranate Raspberry balm and the Blueberry Acai balm, I decided that the raspberry one would be the flavor I'd probably use the most.

So glad I chose this one! It tastes yummy, yeah - but it FEELS awesome! It makes my lips feel soooo buttery smooth. It might be replacing the Sweet Mint as my favorite of all the eos lip balms I own.

  2. I totally feel you - it's hard to find the time to blog sometimes! I find that waking up early helps. There really aren't enough hours in a day though!
    Also - that lipgloss color is so pretty!
    Isn’t That Charming.
