November 2014 – Girl Meets Glitter
Elizabeth Mott you’re so FINE Eyeliner – J. Cat Beauty Wonder Lip Paint – Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Eye Base – TEMPTU S/B Highlighter – Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Volume Shine Hairspray. I absolutely LOVE the bag this month. Overall rating for this bag 3/5. I didn’t like the Wonder Lip Paint and how I wish the eyeliner was in black (that’s all I wear).
December 2014 – Thinking of You
CAILYN Cosmetics Just Mineral Eye Polish – Sexy Hair 450° Blow Out Heat Defense Blow Dry Spray Mini – tarte deluxe lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara – Beauty Without Cruelty A.H.A. 3% Facial Cleanser – NYX Cosmetics Butter Lip Balm. Not the biggest fan of the bag this month. Overall rating of this month’s bag 3/5. Sick of seeing facial cleanser! Lots of repeat brands this month.
January 2015 – Fresh Start
I’m not really sure why this picture is in black & white. When I sent it from my phone to my computer is magically did that on it’s own!
Hikari Cosmetics Eye Liner – Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow – La Fresh Eco-Beauty Be Good. Good Day. Day Moisturizer – Velvet 59 Lipgloss – Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush. Not a big fan of this bag either, it’s hard to tell but it’s white on one side, blue on the other, with a red zipper. Overall rating for this month 3.5/5. MORE silver eye shadow :(. Didn’t really like that lip gloss either.
February 2015 – #IPSYLOVE
Eva NYC Up All Night Volumizing Spray – Mitchell and Peach Fine Radiance Face Oil – Emite Make Up Professional Eye Lash Curler – City Color Cosmetics Creamy Lip Stain – ModelCo BLUSH Cheek Powder. The bag this month was kinda cute. Overall rating for this month’s bag is 3/5. I won’t use the face oil, not a big fan of the volumizing spray or lip stain. But I’m very happy I received the eye lash curler!

InstaNatural’s Argan Oil Hair Mask is a deep conditioning treatment designed to transform dry and damaged strands into soft, shiny, healthy hair. Its restorative ingredients – such as Argan Oil, Japanese Green Tea, Amino Acid Complex, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil & Vitamin B5 – work together to penetrate hair deep down and deliver ultimate nourishment and hydration to enhance texture and shine. This intensive blend full of organic ingredients also serves to strengthen hair to defend against heat damage and other external aggressors.
+Deeply conditions, strengthens and restores hair
+Provides superior hydration and nourishment
+Can be used daily as a standard conditioner
+Turns hair from lifeless and damaged to luxurious and voluminous
+Increases shine, softness and manageability
For use as a mask I recommend using a generous amount (more than your normal conditioner amount) apply to hair roots to tips. Leave in 10-15 minutes. Repeat weekly.
The formula is light enough that you could use it as a standard condition. It doesn’t weigh hair down or leave it greasy. After just one use you can feel and see quite a different. Hair will be smoother, fuller, shinier, and tougher. It really helped to nourish those hard to keep healthy ends.
