Lights, Camera & Award Winning Hair!

Recreate Emilia Clarke’s voluminous, textured hairstyle with this design and sculpting lotion. This special formula adds volume without a greasy or sticky feel and provides a boost of moisture leaving hair healthy and shiny.


I have no idea what Obliphica oil is but I know I love it in a hair gel. With fine naturally curly hair its very tough to find the balance between a product that can provide hold, sculpting and not weigh my hair down or leave it looking greasy.

The Topganic Design & Sculpture Hair Styling Lotion is an amazing match for my hair. Very soothing and hydrating for my fine, dry, color treated hair and it gives my curls shape without weight or greasiness. You can see from the photo below this is a night light, clear hair gel. It has a slight scent that is warm and sweet but  light enough it  won’t bother the most sensitive of noses. The gel feels so light either for heat styling or air drying my hair looks and feels healthier and I love how well it tames my frizz. A great product and the bottle is huge for the price.


Topganic Design & Sculpture Hair Styling Lotion $11

Design and sculpting liquid lotion for fast and easy styling that lasts. Enriched with Obliphica oil, Vitamin A & E and Jojoba seed oil. Nourishes your hair, providing an extra boost of moisture.

Westmore Beauty Lasting Effects Brow Gel


As I age my eyebrows seem to get more and more sparse. Along with being more careful to not over tweeze I am always looking for a good eyebrow product. I have been using the Westmore Beauty Lasting Effects Brow Gel and I love it. Easy to use even with lighter hair and skin without looking like I drew them on. I love the gel formula, its very buildable and the color last for 1-2 days.

You pop off the top and release the brow brush and just a little dip into the bottom pot and start brushing through your brows. The gel formula makes it very easy to build the color to your desired level and if you make a mistake just wipe it clear before the gel dries. One you have the color and shape just right you’re all done. This long wearing formula lasts up to 2 days! I love how quick and easy it is and my brows look great all day and into the next.

If you are in the market for a new eyebrow pencil or gel I really recommend this set, great price and you need so little it will last and last. Check out below to see the before and after.


Westmore Beauty Lasting Effects Brow Gel $28
Transform your appearance dramatically with this easy, one-step solution for shaping 3-dimensional, natural looking brows. The unique gel formula is easy to apply with the pro brow brush and is transfer-resistant, budge-proof and waterproof. A blend of hair-like fibers combined with specially treated pigments fasten onto skin and hair, giving you the full, youthful eyebrows that are all the rage in Hollywood.

Apply over clean, dry brows. Dip, don’t dunk, the Brow Perfector Brush into the container and wipe off excess product on the side. Always start with less and build as needed. Start by filling in gaps using the pointed end of the brush with short, feather-like strokes. Apply in the direction of hair growth. For a fuller brow look, apply over entire brow area, not only your sparse areas. To extend your brow line, use the pointed end of the brush and apply in long, even strokes. Once you have achieved desired coverage and shape, while product is still wet, use the Spoolie Brow Perfector Brush to groom and further distribute product using upward and outward strokes. If you find you have missed a spot or need deeper coverage, reapply the brow gel and groom again.

Lasting Effects One-Step Brow Gel is formulated with Permafix Technology and Brow Fiber Complex, which help create the appearance of natural-looking brows that lasts for days. The blend of hair-like fibers and specially treated pigments are designed to fasten onto skin and hair, creating transfer-proof and budge-proof coverage. Application has never been easier, thanks to the Spoolie Brow Perfector Brush for filling and defining.
