MY MAC COSMETIC FAVORITES

Friday, January 30, 2015
My love for MAC runs deep! Whenever I walk into a MAC store I'm like ...


Sure, I love drugstore cosmetics but a lot of my favorites come from MAC. So, when I leave the store and run home with my new purchase I am BEYOND excited!


I am super excited to share with you some of my absolute FAVORITE MAC PRODUCTS! Products that I'd recommend that you buy and that I would 100% repurchase. 

Prep + Prime Natural Radiance in Radiant Yellow: This is a silky product that hydrates and primes to improve foundation or powder application, control oil and promote a smooth texture. The end result after applying? a beautiful glow!

Prep + Prime Refined Zone: All of my oily ladies throw your hands up in the air! Now, put them down and go to MAC and buy this product. Say byebye to Mr. Shine when you apply this product on your face. Since I have combo skin I rock this more in the Summer but if you are an oily Winter baby feel free to purchase this now or just in time for that hot vacation getaway.

MAC Oil Control Lotion: This moisturizer is just what you need to prepare your skin for foundation! It helps to keep your face oil free and will keep your makeup long lasting throughout the day.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid (NC 45): The perfect medium coverage foundation! A variety of colors makes this product a huge buy for women of color.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer (NC42): My absolute favorite concealer. My sleeping habits are bad (working on it) and my eyes suffer the consequences. While I battle puffiness and dark eye circles this product helps to conceal it. I love the amazing coverage that I get that will last through out the day with very little creasing.

MAC Soft and Gentle Highlighter: The perfect glow! Use your fan brush to apply this product and you won't be disappointed. A little bit goes a long way. Apply this to your cheek bones, the bridge of the nose and forehead for a very natural glowy appearance.

Prep + Prime Highlighter Bright Forecast: This is another fantastic highlight option. Apply it under the eyes to brighten your face.

HAIRFINITY RESULTS

Monday, January 19, 2015
Increased length? Thickness? Acne? Check out my thoughts on the hair supplement that Kim Kardashian and everyone is talking about! Hairfinity! Over the Summer a lot of people were talking on instagram and other social media pages about Hairfinity, a hair vitamin that says it will help your hair grow faster and longer. Hairfinity says it's unique because it contains the basic nutrients for overall health. A healthy body is the ideal environment for healthy hair to thrive.
Hairfinity contains specific nutrients that are essential for faster hair growth:
  • Biotin helps produce keratin, increases hair elasticity, and protects the hair from becoming dry. It also helps thicken the hair to give the appearance of fullness.
  • Antioxidant supplements such as Vitamin C are believed to stimulate hair growth by enhancing the immune function and improving scalp health at a cellular level.
  • Vitamin D helps prevent hair shedding which is critical to a voluminous fuller head of hair.
  • Silica (Horsetail Extract) helps to maintain collagen and hair elasticity to help keep hair lustrous.
  • The sulfur provided by MSM is required for healthy collagen and keratin, which are essential to healthy hair growth.
But does it really work? First I went to my dermatologist and when he gave me the okay I decided to try it out. I put this to the test and purchased a months worth of the product because ... I had a bald spot. Yup, a bald spot. I'm still not sure where this bald spot came from. I have a few theories. 1) I use to get a few grey hairs in this area and because I was too lazy to dye it I would color it in with black mascara. Horrible I know. Could this mascara have caused my hair to fall out in that area? I think so. 2) I've been wrapping my hair at night in the same direction for years. Could combing my hair in the same direction cause the hair in that area to stop growing? Perhaps. We'll never know but the loss of hair really started to bug me. Having that bald spot right in the front section prevented me from wearing my hair back in buns or pony tails. I would have to comb my hair in a swooping style to hide it. I decided to try the Hairfinity to see if the hair in that area could grow in. Luckily for me it did! It only took a month before I noticed the obvious results. I talked about it in a recent video on YouTube. Check it out below and make sure you subscribe for more videos like this one.


One of the biggest downsides to Hairfinity is that it could cause acne. A lot of people worry about this because their have been so many conflicting reports online that this product causes breakouts. For some people they say no change in their skin occurred, but for others they noticed an increase breakouts and even cystic acne (yikes). For the first month I didn't notice a change but my second month I noticed a pimple or two on my forehead. I haven't had a pimple on my forehead in YEARS! I definitely hit the breaks when I discovered this. After just ordering two more bottles I wasn't sure what to do. I hate to waste products (and my money). I did some research and learned that by drinking a ton of water (you should drink a gallon) and taking a multi vitamin (adult gummies) it can help reduce the chances of a breakout. So far so good! Water is great for you anyway especially if you are trying to stay healthy and have clear skin so it's been worth it. I carry around a water bottle with me at work and fill it up throughout the day. 

Overall, I give this product two thumbs up! If you are interested in purchasing Hairfinity           CLICK HERE. If you have any questions feel free to ask me! 
Good luck with your hair growth journey.
