Hello everybody!

Every now and then I like to step out of my comfort zone and try something new; either I am trying a new makeup look, an edgy outfit or a new hairstyle, I like to challenge my own self. Speaking of hair, you'll never know what I've tried. Can you guess? Let me give you a hint with a little story.

I have naturally curly hair and over the years I have played with its length, I have never had that short boysh hair, I really like my hair at least medium length. Due to the fact that I live in an area with a lot of humidity, my hair has now a life on its own, it's frizzy, very unruly, dry, I kinda lost the definition of my curls. Trust me, I did try a lot of products, everything looks amazing on me for about 2 hours, then the nightmare is back. So, at this point I don't even care anymore about the stack of hay on my head, but, boy was I dreaming about some big bouncy wavy curls, you know those that you see in commercials or magazines.

Incidentally, a few moths ago I was contacted by a lovely company called Irresistible Me, which invited me to test their products. The name sounded familiar and, after a few searches I remembered why, it was because of Nee (aka Bebexo), one of my favorite Youtubers, she used their products on her own hairstyle tutorials. 

The company Irresistible Me is ”a growing brand of 100% natural Remy clip-in hair extensions, hair accessories and hair tools. Irresistible Me specializes in high quality extensions at great prices.”

So, by this time, you have probably guessed - I have tried hair extensions, something completely new to me. As I was a total newbie at this, I just want to say ”A BIG thanks!” to the amazing PR girl who was unbelievable patient with me and so kind in guiding me through the process of ordering the right extensions. 

Here are some tips that I have received and like to pass them on to you as well:
- watch this video, not only you'll get familiar with the two types of extensions that the company offers - Silky Touch and Royal Remy, but also you'll see all the colors side by side (and they have quite a big color selection) so that you can compare and see the differences. In this way, you'll be able to choose the color that matches your hair easily.
- when it comes to the length of your extensions, remember a basic rule: The longer the hair, the bigger the weight should be selected.” The weight of the extensions (100g, 140g, 200g) refers to the total weight of the hair you will order without the clips attached, so keep in mind that the thickness of the hair is relative to both the weight and the length you choose: a 14" 200g  piece will look thicker than 24" 200g.

All this being said, I have ordered the Royal Remy Clip-in extensions in Ash Blonde - 24 inches, 200 g. At that time my hair was quite long (more than 24 inches) and not colored.

The extensions arrived surprisingly in only 3 days (considering that fact that they are shipped from China), but due to a glitch with FedEx I got them 2 days later. I really like the box in which they came, it's so cute and feminine.

Love this message, don't you?

I was so curious to check them out, I was so anxious to try them. As I opened the box, I have noticed the ”Open this side first” section, where there are a few useful tips to test if you made the correct choice ordering the right extensions, before opening the rest of the package. Then, I saw the extensions nicely packed and organized. As I was pulling them out, I said to myself: ”Wow, that is a LOT of hair!”
I have received 10 pieces: 1 pc of 3 clips (8''), 2 pcs of 3 clips (6"), 5 pcs of 2 clips (4") and 2 pcs of 1 clip (1.5"). My main fear was clipping the extensions to my own hair, but if a newbie like me did it, you can do it too (praise the awesome Youtube for that!).

So, to clip or not to clip? Here are a few thoughts!

As I was so curious to play with my extensions, the next day I tested them. The chosen color in ”Ash Blonde” matched my natural hair beautifully, the length of 24" was perfect. As I was testing the extensions, I have noticed that the hair has such a beautiful soft, silky texture that I could comb easily before applying it. One thing I did notice, the hair smells a bit differently. The application went smoothly, it was just like a kid's play, clip and you are done. I did attach all my 10 received pieces and you could tell how my confidence level was going up, I had such a full, rocking new hair, that it would make any hair model envious.

I felt comfortable wearing the extensions, I did not feel any heaviness on my head. Also, they came off easily. When I chose to style them, it was a bit of work for me - long, thick hair - imagine I wanted to curl it all, but I did it eventually. As I was curling my hair, I have noticed that a few strands of hair did remain on my barrel, so I lowered the temperature. My curls looked beautiful and lasted throughout the day without using any hair products. I did not wash my extensions yet, so I cannot give you information about that aspect, but the PR lady that I have been in contact with since the beginning was kind to offer me some useful intructions that I will keep in mind.

On my birthday month, I decided to try something completely different to my hair, so I did cut and colored it (for the first time!). What are you gonna see in the pictures down below is how these extensions work on my new hair now. In these pictures, I did not use all of the extensions, as my hair got shorter, I don't feel the need to do it anymore. Also, I curled them. I really like this color in Ash Blonde and I am seriously thinking to do it as my next coloring color. What do you think?

Hello everybody!

We meet again my dear readers in the sweet month of November and this time you'll find me talking about my favorite makeup product in the entire world - yes - THE ALMIGHTY LIPSTICK.
Inheriting this passion (now transformed into a real addiction) from my mom who can rock a lipstick anytime and who in her entire life has never used any other makeup product, my passion for lipsticks began when I was just a kid as I was watching her putting on lipstick and I was counting down the days when I would do the same. I was fascinated about that little stick who can just transform you from an ordinary person into a princess.

The lipstick for me  is not just a makeup product, an object, the lipstick is a part of me. When I have days when I might look like a zombie, or just a gloomy one, putting on lipstick makes me feel simply amazing. When I put my lipstick on, I feel like I rule the world. All my lipstick lovers out there, you know what I am talking about, others may consider me crazy or superficial. I don't care! Love me or hate me, this is ME!

In today's post I am beyond excited to show you and talk about my absolute favorite VoxBox received from Influenster so far - the Yves Saint Laurent VoxBox. If you don't know what Influenster is, let me tell you that Influenster is an exclusive online community of over 1.5 million social savvy shoppers that stay on top of the latest product news and expert tips, review products, share honest opinions with brands and the community and test products for free based on their social media influence. Sounds exciting, right?

If you follow me on Instagram, I was teasing you with a sneak peek of the content of this box a while back. Well, inside the black elegant box there were two Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks from the Rouge Pur Couture collection, one in number 9 ”Rose Stiletto” and one in number 19 - ”Fuchsia”.

To say that I was mega happy and grateful for being chosen from so many great Influenster members out there to test these products is an understatement. Are you kidding me? Lipsticks? Better yet? YSL lipsticks?

As a lipstick addict and lover, I am proud to say that I do own a few YSL lipsticks and the quality of these products never failed my expectations. That is why when I want to splurge, YSL is one of my top three brands that I like to go for, definitely deserves every penny of those $36.

The two received lipsticks from the Rouge Pur Couture collection confirmed what I expected from the brand: high quality all the way through.

Better yet, let's see them in action!

YSL Rouge Pur Couture in no. 9 Rose Stiletto - Rally's Beauty Highway

The Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in  number 9 ”Rose Stiletto” is a rich berry rose - the perfect fall shade. Elegant and sumptuous, this lipstick matches my skin tone perfectly. It's a classic shade that you can never go wrong with, I can wear it both as a day time makeup as well as a night one. It feels so comfortable on my lips, it's like I was touched by a rose petal.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture in no. 19 Fuchsia - Rally's Beauty Highway

When I first saw the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in number 19 - ”Fuchsia” - magenta purple - I said ”Wow, now you're talking!”. Having such a fair complexion, you know me, I would never say ”no” to a bold color, because I like rocking a bold lipstick and this one is exactly what I needed. I received so many compliments wearing this lipstick, that one day I was literally walking on sunshine. Need to make a statement? This lipstick is on point!

I would like to sum up now with some essential facts that I've noticed wearing these lipsticks:

  • luxurious packaging - hands down to YSL for this packaging, the lipstick itself is a masterpiece
  • great smell - all those YSL lovers out there will recognize the unmistakable smell of this lipstick
  • easy application - both lipsticks glided smoothly on my lips
  • great coverage without any effort - I can really achieve great coverage with only one stripe/ application, but you can build it up as you desire
  • rich pigmentation - both lipsticks are great when it comes to pigmentation
  • long wearing”Rose Stiletto” stayed on me for about good long 6 hours, meanwhile ”Fuchsia” resisted more than 8 hours
  • small transfer when I was eating and drinking 

Both lipsticks match my skin tone very wellfeel so comfortable on my lips, they are creamymoisturizing (do not dry my lips all day long), do not bleed and let me tell you a secret I did not wear any lip liner, not to mention that beautiful satin radiance finish that brought me so many compliments. As I told you before, the lipsticks confirmed the quality that I have expected from the brand.

A very, very subjective conclusion the Influenster Yves Saint Laurent VoxBox was my favorite VoxBox so far, the ”little” lipstick addict inside me sure enjoyed playing with these jewels. 

What do you think about Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks? Do you own any? Which ones are your favorites?
