ARTISTRY SIGNATURE COLOR LIPSTICK REVIEW

 
 
 

Long time no see!

I'll admit, I've been feeling really out of the loop lately. Being so busy with my job and trying to write a blog at the same time is not easy... But hopefully I can ease myself back into the blogging process. So today I have a review of the Artistry Signature Color lipstick, as well as a giveaway for my Slovenian readers at the end.
I've tried a few Artistry products before, and have been impressed time and time again by their beautiful quality. You can really tell they do high-end, their products look & feel expensive and are really high quality. I received two of their lipstick for review, and was once again impressed by Artistry.
These lipsticks are sheer, and great for everyday use. They're lightweight and not oily/heavy at all, feel pleasant on the lips and are not drying at all. They're quite glossy and have a great shine to them.
The pink shade is called Pink Quartz and is something I would wear daily (and I actually wore it yesterday). It's a nice light baby pink color which doesn't look unnatural on my lips.
Sandstone is more of a neutral shade, a tan color with brown undertones. Now if you're like me and have been obsessing over these kinds of 90s colors, you might just love it! It doesn't give you a splash of color, but it goes with absolutely everything, and it feels light on the lips. These colors have no shimmer/glitter, which I love.
The lipsticks surprised me with beautiful packaging, really nice and weighty with a luxurious feel. They open with a click and look just beautiful... Something you'll be excited to pull out of your purse.
And finally, a little surprise for my Slovenian readers! If you head to my Facebook page, you can enter to win Sandstone! Good luck ladies!

DRUGSTORE DUPE FOR REDKEN ANTI-SNAP

DRUGSTORE DUPE FOR REDKEN ANTI-SNAP

 

Let's chat hair care!

I've been using the Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Conditioner for the better part of a year now. I even mentioned I stopped using it for a while, and this is definitely one of those products that you notice is missing - does that make sense? When I didn't use it, my hair was dry and kept getting tangled up, but when I do put it in, my hair is softer & silkier. While I've had my bottle for a long time, I have to say this is a pretty expensive product. You can usually get it on some kind of offer, but the price is still around 20€. I've been trying to find a dupe for a long time, but it seemed pretty much impossible ...

Enter John Frieda.

I've used a lot of their products over the years, but somehow managed to forget about them after a while. A few weeks ago, I was sent two of their new products and the Frizz Ease Daily Miracle Leave-In Conditioner immediately caught my fancy. This product is a little different than the Redken one. While Anti-Snap is kind of like a liquid cream with a pump, Daily Miracle is in a spray bottle and feels like thick water. You spray it on your ends (don't use too much or your hair will get crunchy), and it works a treat! I noticed it significantly cut down the time I need to dry my hair, and it made it much softer and less prone to tangles. Usually, I need to comb my hair every 2 hours because otherwise it gets these insane knots, but with this, I can easily do it 1-2 per day. A great improvement for me. Best of all, the product only costs around 8€, which is half the price of Redken. I apply it to towel-dried hair (a small amount, way less than Redken) and either air or blow-dry. In case you are interested, Redken has 250 ml of product, and John Frieda has 200 ml, which I'm totally fine with - I like changing up my products and had Redken not worked so well, I would've gotten tired of it at this point. I've really been enjoying it and I would definitely recommend it if you have hair like mine - very long, prone to knots, damaged.

What is your favorite leave-in conditioner?

P.S. I am totally in love with my new background, which my father-in-law made for me, how sweet is that? I feel like a proper beauty blogger now, hehe.
