Michael O'Rourke- Rock Your Hair- Bombshell Big Hair Powder- Review

Hey Everyone!

I know its been awhile.. and I am slacking but school is defiantly taking over my life at the moment. The only reason I had time to do this post is because I actually got to go home early for the day.. ya!!
A couple of months ago I was getting ready with the girls from my friends bridal party to go out for the evening and she brought along this miracle powder.. yes I think its miracle. She told me if I wanted volume and my hair to stay put then just sprinkle this powder underneath the hair right at your roots. My hair stayed perfect all night. Anytime I have a night out or a function to go to.. I use this powder.. it kind of reminds me of dry shampoo but dry shampoo you can brush out easy.. this stuff you can't.. it stays in place!

So after using it that night when I went out with the girls.. I wanted to purchase this immediately. I didn't know where to buy it.. so I assumed if I were to go shopping in the states.. I would be sure to find it at either Ulta or Sephora... so I found it at Ulta.. it was over $20 USD for this little thing.. I thought it was kinda over priced but I didn't care because I wanted it away. Today I went to Winners right after school and found this exact same bottle for $7.99 CAD. I was shocked I actually found it there..Winners never disappoints.  I also bought a hair spray from the same line.. but I'll do a review of that another time. 
So this little bottle is a must have in my hair essentials....I love it!

Do you use any volume powders for your hair? Anyone try this before?

August Luxe Box 2012

Hey Everyone!

So after my long wait for the new seasonal Luxe Box... it finally came yesterday.
It was weird because I wasn't as excited as I was to previous boxes I have received. Maybe its because I don't get them every month like before and I kinda forget I even have the subscription still!
Well anyways.. here it is!

So I got...

China Glaze Nail Polish (Purr-Fect Plum)- This colour is from the new Fall collection they have and they could not have picked a better colour for me! It's beautiful.. I am really happy to get this in my box and I have no colour that looks like this at all! Its a full size product.

Kerasrase Elixir Ultime- Very interested to see how this hair oil is going to be like for my hair. I find a lot of hair oils to be too heavy for my type of hair and always turn my hair too greasy. Very small sample.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner- Another full size product.. I am excited to get this.. I don't wear or own any eyeliner.. I know crazy right? So I'll be able to try this out.. I always wanted to create a nice winged or cat eye but never had any eyeliners to do it!

Paco Robanne Lady Million Fragrance- Very cute sample.. but the smell is not really for me.. I like more of a floral light scent where I feel this is more for nights out only. 

B. Kamins Eye Cream- Never heard of this brand before.. can never go wrong with trying out different eye creams.. since I'm just starting to wear one everyday!

Blinc Mascara- On the package it says.. stop painting your lashes.. tube them. I'm really excited to try this out.. I've heard of mascaras like this but never have tried it!

Loose Button Gift (Exfoliating Pad)- I really didn't need this.. but I can always use it! 

So there ya have it my new Luxe Box from the seasonal boxes. Can I say that I am impressed?... Not really. There are only 2 full sized products in the whole box and I thought I was going to get wayy more products and bigger products since we are paying more money for the subscription. I am thankful that I'm going to try new products that I have never tried before.. but is it worth the money.. I don't know. I'm going to play out the rest of my subscription and see where it takes me.

Did any of you get your Luxe Box in yet? Have you tried any of these products before?
