#NirvanaHair with Elizabeth and James Nirvana Dry Shampoo

Elizabeth-and-James-Nirvana-Black-White-Dry-Shampoo

When I was asked to review the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Dry Shampoo’s I’ll admit I may have a faint idea about the line but I had never tried it. As I started to research the line I found  out it was created by none other than the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I may have loved Mary-Kate and Ashley movies way longer than I should have. What can I say I loved that amazing twin duo and all their adventures Passport to Paris, It Takes two, How the West was Fun… I could go on but I won’t.

Back to their Nirvana line, presented as the first fine fragrance shampoo I was ready to give it a try. After several uses this is my new hands down favorite dry shampoo line. First things first its an amazing dry shampoo, it absorbs oil adds body and bounce and extends my heat styled hair  while refreshing it. For a girl who has tried a ton of dry shampoos this really is a stand out. Now the fragrance I thought was just a gimmick but when a dry shampoo smells this amazing its anything but. Both the White and Black Dry shampoo are lightly perfumed with their namesake fragrance (reviews on those to come soon).  I love how amazing this makes my hair smell, not powdery or just clean but gorgeous. And every time I use the Elizabeth and James dry shampoo I get compliments on how beautiful my perfume is. Little do they know its my dry shampoo working double duty!

Target Launches First Private Label Nail Brand, defy & INSPIRE

TARGET-DEFY-INSPIRE-GROUPSHOT

 

Beginning in mid-January, Target will introduce its first exclusive nail brand defy & INSPIRE, a new affordable collection of high-shine, wear-resistant nail lacquers. The collection will launch in Target stores and on Target.com beginning on Jan. 17, 2016. There are 38 on-trend shades in addition to a top and base coat, offered for $7.49 a piece. The assortment is chic and versatile, featuring on-trend colors for the spring and summer seasons.

defyinspirecomposite-summary

How it works: defy & INSPIRE combines two innovative technologies to help guests achieve a long-lasting, salon-quality manicure at home. Patented plasticizers create “color flexibility” by resisting cracking or peeling the exclusive dual-polymer technology bonds the color to the nail and fuses to the second coat for a revolutionary wear-resistant, high-gloss Finish.

The base coat is a double-sided, colorless formula that clings to both the lacquer and the nail, providing a flexible, yet strong, foundation for the lacquer. The top coat is a protective, high-gloss finishing step that extends the lacquer’s wear and creates a long-lasting shine. The 5-free formula does not contain harmful chemicals, including DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin or Camphor.
