Ulta Twisted Volume Mascara Review!

Hi loves! I recently purchased the Ulta Twisted Volume Mascara in Jet Black. I love it!!! It volumizes and lengthens my lashes. The formula is definitely jet black - it makes my lashes look very bold. When applying this mascara, there is no clumping and very minimal flaking. It does not randomly smudge throughout the day and is very easy to take off.  

There are four different settings on this mascara. You can turn the end of the wand to 1, 2, 3, or 4. The higher the number, the more twisted the wand becomes. I always use the fourth setting because I love the most drama. It is still great to have the option of customizing the mascara to your needs - everyday vs. dramatic look. The head of the wand is thick, which is fantastic. I cannot stand the little skinny wands that poke your eyes out. 

I definitely recommend that you try this mascara out! It is currently on sale at Ulta. You can buy 2 and get the 3rd free. It is already inexpensive, so this is a really great deal! There are color options other than Jet Black. You can also purchase this mascara in Soft Black and Black Brown. Check it out here

I am always interested in trying out new fabulous mascaras! If you have any recommendations for me, let me know in the comments below!

John Frieda | Shampoo Review

Hi loves! By now you have probably already figured out that I love testing out new shampoos. I was looking at different shampoos in my grocery store and a lady recommended a John Frieda shampoo. She had me intrigued. It is called the John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Visibly Brighter Subtle Lightening Shampoo (*takes breath from long name*). 

It claims to lighten your hair to produce an illuminating glow. It is formulated with honey and marigold flower extract and is colour depositing, ammonia, and peroxide-free. What really interested me about this shampoo is that you can use it on natural hair, as well as color-treated hair. I have never died my hair, so having lighter hair without any dye involved is really awesome. 

After trying this shampoo out, I am absolutely addicted to it! I saw a slight difference after the first use. Once I used it 3+ times, I saw a huge difference. My hair looks so much better! It is naturally medium brown with red and gold tones in it. This shampoo lightened my overall brown shade, while bringing out the red and gold in my hair. It illuminates much more than it did before. I recommend this shampoo to all brunettes!!! They do have this shampoo formulated for blondes and red-heads, so check those out if you don't have brown hair. 

I have really oily hair. This shampoo does dry out your hair a bit, so everyone with oily hair will fall in love. Before this shampoo, I would wear my hair down on the first day after washing it and up on the second. Now I can wear my hair down on the first and second day.... what a miracle! If you have dry hair, I definitely recommend using a conditioner and other moisturising products after you wash. 

John Frieda does make a conditioner called the John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Visibly Brighter Subtle Lightening Conditioner that specifically goes with this shampoo. It is also said to lighten your hair. I have not used it, but I am going to purchase it soon!

If you have not tried this shampoo out yet, you need to! It is a definite must-have beauty product!
