Lime Crime Diamond Crushers

Glittery. Versatile. Amazing. These iredescent lip toppers instantly double your lip color collection as these little beauties can be worn alone or on top of your favorite lip product. It is a perfect addition when wanting to add a little drama to your usual look.

The Diamond Crushers formula is non-sticky and glides easily over the lips. The glitter stays where it’s supposed to and doesn’t get all over your face.

The Lime Crime website describes them as, a weightless water-based formula that goes on matte and dries to a smudge-proof finish. Can be worn alone or over liquid matte lipstick without making it run, and the lightweight water-based formula is filled with light-reflective iridescent shimmers that dance and glisten with you as you move. 

Ten beautiful, sparkling shades including:

  • Choke (baby pink/baby blue)
  • Lit (rose gold)
  • Cleopatra (blush/gold)
  • Acid Fairy (lavender/mint)
  • Black Unicorn (black rainbow)
  • Cheap Thrill (sunset/rose)
  • Dope (cotton candy pink/champagne)
  • Strip (bright pink)
  • Fluke (mauve/blue)
  • Trip (purple/turquoise)

Available for $18 on the Lime Crime website and some shades are available on ASOS as well.

DIY Firework Lashes

Materials:

  • Artificial lashes of your choice (I used Dodo Lashes, style D115).
  • Cosmetic grade glitter.
  • Glitter adhesive (I used Sprinkles Glue from Beauty Bakerie).

Process:

  • While leaving your lashes in their tray, brush a third (or however much you are wanting for your first glitter) with glitter adhesive.
  • Repeat the process with the rest of the lash.
  • After the tops have dried fully, gently remove them from their tray, and repeat the process with the bottom side of the lashes.
  • Once both sides have dried, you are ready to apply.

Thanks for reading and have a great 4th of July! πŸ€—

Invisibobble Hair Rings

So at first look, I must admit these did not catch my eye….but what changed? Here is a little back story. I am a natural brunette who has very light bleached blonde hair. It is very fragile and requires a lot of extra special care and attention to keep it looking healthy. Most days (if I am being honest) my hair is up in some sort of a messy bun, and like most girls, I would use the regular, circular hair ties (like these). While reading through various blogs and Instagram accounts that I follow, I came across a post about the damage that traditional hair ties can cause, and when I say damage, I mean breakage. The worst word to be spoken in front of any bleached blonde.

So I began to do a little research. I like to use Ulta as a starting point for research because they usually have tons of reviews for the items they carry. In my research I found that these strange looking hair ties were quite remarkable and were rated 4.5/5.0 (based on 106 reviews). Many people stated that they did not hurt their head like other types of hair ties, that they don’t pull or break the hair, that they do not leave an indent pattern on the hair when removed and the list goes on and on.

First and foremost I wanted something that could easily be camouflaged in my hair. Second, I needed a hair tie that was sturdy and would hold all day without the need to readjust from slipping. Based on the reviews I read, I thought I’d try them out.

So glad that I did! These are a great product and the story behind the company is rather cute as well. One most women can relate to.

While a price point of $7.95 for a quantity of 3 might seem a tad high; once you try these for yourself you will quickly realize that they are totally worth it. I’ve even thrown away all my old hair bands. The Invisibobble hair ties come in a variety of colors, but I love the clear version because it is easily concealed when I put my hair up.

In the weeks I have used them (and again, I wear my hair up most days), I have noticed less tangling, more comfort throughout the day, and on a huge positive note, my messy buns have never looked better…BONUS! πŸ™‚

These modern miracles are available at Ulta or on the Invisibobble website.
