Product Review: Celebrity Hairstylist, José Eber Introduces The Shampoo

9 Jul

Last night I washed my hair with José Eber’s Beauté Cheveux – The Shampoo. This is my first experience with the celebrity stylist”s professional hair care line of products and I love it! I purposefully didn’t use any conditioner so that I could see the pure results of this innovative daily foaming shampoo. I was captivated by the neo-molecular delivery system, the foam transforms into a creamy, luxurious lather. Vegas summers wreak havoc on my hair, so I try to use products that are light but moisturizing. This product is just that. It doesn’t contain any sulfates or parabens. The proof is in the pictures. I don’t have any styling products in my hair below and I was impressed by the volume and shine it gave my hair. Most likely due to special mineral blend formulation. Oh and it smells lovely too!

  • The formula is amazingly pigmented, long lasting and available in a range of finishes whilst formulated to be easy to apply. I only applied two coats!
  • And the satin bow Finishing touch which crowns each polish. Lovely packaging.

3 Reasons Why I Love the Katy Perry False Lash Collection by Eylure

24 Mar

Free false eyelash application? Um…yeah! I am constantly trying to perfect my eyelash expertise so when I was invited to check out the new Eylure collection by Katy Perry, I made sure to book some time on my weekend calendar to stop by my local Kohl’s store.

The story behind this collection is that Katy’s makeup artist used these on her during her tour and she would stack two or three pairs of lashes to achieve the on-stage look Katy loved.  Katy Perry became a huge fan of the false eyelashes that she approached the brand to collaborate, thus the Katy Perry Collection was born.

Top three reasons I like these false eyelashes:

  1. They are 100% human hair therefore they are ultra light, I don’t feel them nor do they weigh my lids down
  2. They are reusable unlike many that are one-time use only
  3. Great range of styles, from natural to costume

My favorite ones so far are Feline Fierce (pictured below) which are the one of the samples that were provided to me by the brand’s PR rep . Oh and here’s an insider tidbit, they will be launching ones with invisible bands soon! Follow Eylure USA on Facebook and Twitter.
