Time to talk shampoo again – this time back to L’Oreal. I am a fan of this brand’s hair products in general, and since I had never tried this one, I decided to give it a go.

LOC (Love of Color) One & Done Shadow Sticks Review

Hey everyone, we are sticking in the same brand as Wednesday: Tati from GlamLifeGuru with Birchbox’s new LOC (Love of Color) line. Today we are talking about the One & Done Shadow Sticks. There are five shades in the collection and I have purchased all five:
1. On Point- champagne
2. Day Trip – Gold
3. Impress Me – taupe-y bronze
4. Nite Owl – deep purple
5. Smoke Screen – deep silver

What’s nice about these shadows is that come in pencil form and are really creamy, which makes them very easy to apply and blend. There is no pulling on the eyelid and the color applies evenly without any bunching or patching.

The colors are so beautiful and pigmented, particularly the gold and purple. I can see myself doing a gorgeous purple smokey eye with Nite Owl, and I do wear Day Trip fairly often. Do note that all of the shades are shimmery/metallic.

The only thing I can criticize about this product is the fact that when I wear as a single shadow look, blended up through my crease, it bunches and creases quite noticeably. It does last well on the lids – it lasted throughout Halloween (and I may have slept in my makeup that night…) – just not the crease. It is a disappointment but not a deal breaker.

I would give them a try if you love cream shadows and are looking for shades like these (you can buy them together, in sets with the vibrant matte lipsticks, or separately). They might not be great as a single-shade look, but overall I love the colors and finish so much that I will continue to incorporate them into my looks.

I bought this myself. I’m not getting paid for this post. All opinions are my own.

LOC (Love of Color) Vibrant Matte Lipstick Review (First Kiss, Glam Life, and Wildest Dreams)

Hi everyone! A few weeks ago, I spoke about products from FleurdeForce, and as it turns out, another of my favorite YouTubers released a product range. Tati from GlamLifeGuru collaborated with Birchbox to create LOC, Love of Color. I bought the entire collection and have no shame; I knew I was saving my points for something special!

Anyway, today I’m talking about the vibrant matte lipsticks. There are 3 shades: First Kiss (a nude), Wildest Dreams (red), and Glam Life (a deep berry).

Fitbit Flex Six Months Review

Six months later and it’s time for a Fitbit check-in.

 photo IMG_3163_zpswdlpcbjm.jpg

I have to say that after all this time, I still love it. It does keep me motivated to keep moving; I find it measures my steps accurately.

In terms of motivation in the winter, I find that the competitions in the app don’t really help me. After the first day in the Workweek Hustle, if I’m too far behind, I kind of give up and accept my last place fate. I think it’s because it is so cold and I can’t/don’t want to go out for a quick walk around the block to catch up.
