With naturally curly, fine, color treated hair my poor tresses can get pretty beat up with all they put up with. And after a summer of sun damage my hair has been a bit dull and droopy. Enter abba Gentle Shampoo, a gentle cleanser that clears the product and gunk from my hair while mending the damage and leaving my hair soft and shiny. You don’t need much to really get your hair clean and I love how it rinses easily without leaving my hair feeling like wet straw. It smells fantastic and in just a few uses I can see my hair is getting a bit of spring back and the shine is amazing.

NEW Makeup Revolution USA Sticks // Blush + Contour + Highlight

CYMERA_20160906_150249

Contouring made simple with Makeup Revolution’s universal shade for contour perfection in The One Sculpt Contour Stick. Apply in one simple swipe, and then blend and buff to perfection.  I love the subtle sheer colors of the One Sculpt and Contouring sticks. As you can see below the shades come out very vibrant and pigmented, I blend with my finger tips or a makeup brush and I am left with beautiful and natural looking contouring. Perfect for your gym or travel bag, the One sticks are great for on the go and the creamy formula means I am not worried about dropping a powder compact and ruining it. (Won’t admit how often that has happened to me.) The One blush stick even doubles as lipstick!

Head to your local Ulta to check out these great beauty multitaskers.
