No Poo-ing

If you have never heard of No-Pooing, it is shampooing your hair without shampoo and only using conditioner, much like the whole Wen by Chaz Dean concept. The No-Poo way is much more affordable because you use cheap drugstore conditioner to cleanse with. The idea is that the cheaper brands have more ingredients that actually cleanse the hair versus an expensive salon conditioner.

I have been doing the No-Poo method for the last week after realizing I really want to try Wen again, but can't afford it at this time. I am using the Suave Professionals conditioner with almond and shea butter. It smells really nice and leaves my hair super soft.

I first wet my hair really thoroughly and scrub at my scalp with just warm water. I then add a glob of conditioner to my roots and work it in really well. I leave that on for a couple minutes while I do other things and then work more conditioner into the rest of my hair and comb through. After a few more minutes I rinse my hair really well, a…

Tarte 8th World Wonder A-D swatches

This is the first sub-sequent shipment to the Tarte TSV- 8th World Wonder.

This collection is not available for purchase at this time. If anyone is expecting this and decides they don't want it after seeing the pictures, please e-mail me ( before cancelling your order. There are many ladies who missed out that would love to buy it from you. Thanks!!

This collection looks very much like a "Fall" collection. The greens and peaches are gorgeous. I especially love the blush which is a darker, pinker and matte version of the first one. The liner is a forest green with gold shimmer. The gloss which I didn't swatch is a salmony color with some shimmer. The brush included would work well for foundation or blush, and I think it is the same brush that is coming in the next TSV on July 2. This kit also comes with a LCL mascara and Balancing Foundation.
