PIPM: Pretty in Pink Megan: Recent Beauty Buys

Recent Beauty Buys

1) Hairtrition Deep Moisturizing Hair Mask - this just flat out sucked.  I didn't find that it did any kind of deep conditioning at all and actually left my hair feeling super tangly.  I'm glad that I just got a sample packet.  

2) Loreal BB Cream in Fair-  I actually really like this stuff for a light coverage.  It comes out white and somehow turns into a skin color when it is applied to your face.

I am wearing no makeup on the left, and the BB cream on the right.  Please ignore my teenage breakout.  

3) Maybelline Illegal Lengths Mascara - this stuff works for length, but NOT for volume.  It left my lashes looking long, but puny.  It would probably work best applied as a second layer of mascara over a volumizing one.  
4) Riveting Reds Shampoo and Conditioner - I asked the lady at Sally's Beauty Supply for a good color depositing shampoo and conditioner and this is what she recommended.  I actually really liked both of the items.  It doesn't work as a great conditioner, but I think it definitely deposits red just like my more pricy Aveda conditioner.  

5) Umberto Beverly Hills Deep Mask - this mask was just okay.  It was definitely nothing special and didn't really detangle at all like the box said that it would.  Overall it was a waste of 10 dollars.

6) It's a 10 Miracle Leave in Treatment- I really like this stuff.  It does what it says it will do.  However, it does kind of weigh my hair down, but besides that I really like it.

So, as you can see my recent buys have been kind of a bust lately.  What are you loving in the beauty product world?  I need some new recommendations!

PS- check out the blog sale items that I added yesterday!

It's a 10 Miracle Leave in Treatment is great. I do have to use it on Day 1 (I wash hair every other day since it is so fine), because if I wear it on Day 2 it looks too greasy or weighed down, so I agree with you there. Have you tried any of the new Schwarzkopf Professional products? Some of them are wonderful!

I just got the BB cream, and I'm really liking it. It gives decent coverage but doesn't have the obvious "I'm wearing foundation" look.
