KKW Powder Contour

kkw beauty kitAlthough KKW contour stick got really bad reviews. I honestly believe that the second product of Kim Kardashian is not so bad after all. The Powder Contour Kit in Medium is the one I own.

I loved it, I haven’t used the bronzer shade yet (I found it too dark and has an orange undertone which is not a favorite look of mine).

The compact is divided into four squares, each big enough to dip a bronzing/ contouring brush into aside from the brush that comes with it. The first color is a highlighter, creamy off white in color. Which I love the most, I apply it in the inner corner of my eyes, bridge of my nose and under my brows. It gives off the perfect shimmer illusion.

Second square is the concealer setter (that has a little bit of shimmer / if you like to set your concealers with that), a pale ivory shade that works.

The powder is super pigmented. Last but not least is a neutral taupe brown with no orangey tones blends extremely well, stays put and actually looks very natural even when heavily applied.

I apply this brown tone with no foundation sometimes if I’m in a hurry and need a little bit of contouring, it stays put and the color does not change tones when applied with foundation or without.

The KKW Powder Contour is great for beginners, and if you’re into a nice highlighter shine then this kit is for you. If she sells the highlighter on its own, I think it would be amazing !! I loved it more than other brands I tried, and would definitely continue using the highlighter, the contour part, well there are other brands too.

Silky Thick Groom

hairstyles-trends-2015-16 134f9fdbbec7b6ce70472ec774d72bedHair treatments, the most confusing. We are promised so many long lasting results. Formulas vary from silicone-based, to alcohol free, to natural, to curl enhancing, etc… I tried a couple of products that I believe helped in thicken my hair and have a long lasting shine. In this post I will share with you my top products along with some simple hair remedies you can try at home.

1- Kerastase Lumiere Liquid: It’s quite pricey, however it can last for a year since you just need one or two hair drops for all hair types. This serum gives extreme shine and is extremely weightless. When you spray it on your hand and put it on your hair you bareful feel anything. But you get the shine.

2-Kiehl’s Silk Groom Serum: It can pretty much straighten curly hair. You however have to apply it on wet hair before blow drying your hair as it also helps with minimizing tangles. This serum is mostly recommended for those with curly hair but can also work on any hair types as you can always put it on the tips of your hair for defrizzing.

3- Apple Cider Vinegar: Yes it stinks, but when you leave it in your hair for around 30 minutes before you shower, the silky shine you get is unbelievable. The smell will still remain after you wash it, but only you can smell it. For best results I apply apple cider vinigar on my hair, tie it and cover it with a plastic bag for hydrating effects. (please do not try if you have an irritation to vinigar).
