Sephora Favorites – The Captivators Deluxe Fragrance Sampler for Her

Sephora has released a few fragrance sampler sets recently. Of course, I had to pick up one like I did not have enough perfumes already.
 The packaging is very nice and makes a perfect gift.
It comes with four deluxe size bottles. Unfortunately, there is no spray. Still, I think it is perfect to carry one in the purse and touch up throughout the day.
There is a certificate included which is redeemable for a full size bottle.
I actually like all the scents, and my favorite has to be Dior Addict to Life.

NOTD: Butter London – The Black Knight

I was not too fond of glitter nail polishes before, but this shade totally changed my mind.
two coats, natural light
 It has a black jelly base full with silver, red, blue and pink glitter. It is perfectly opaque in two coats and dries up pretty fast.

I have so many nail polishes, but I find myself reaching for it all the time.
Do you like it?

Wen – Cleansing Conditioner in Sweet Almond Mint

I finally broke down and purchased the Wen cleansing conditioner after heard so many good things about it. 

Before I start, I have very fine, flat and straight hair.
I have mixed feelings about the product. It does make my hair glossy, silky and smooth, but in a few hours my hair gets super oily/greasy like I haven’t washed my hair for days. I usually wash my hair at night and in the next morning I always have to use a dry shampoo.
I’ve also noticed slightly more hair loss due to the product. One reasonable explanation I have is that the roots are extremely fragile when the hair is wet and too much rubbing/massaging contributes to hair loss.
 The most important reason I won’t repurchase it is that it does not get my hair clean. After I shampoo, I can still find traces of dry shampoo in the roots which could possibly clog the pores in the scalp. 
Overall, I don’t like the product. If you have the same hair type as me, I would not recommend it at all.

Empties and Purchases (4/22/12)

Here is another round of empties and purchases. I’ve been really enjoying doing those posts.

Origins – Drink Up Mask
It smelt nice and was quite moisturizing, but the scent was too strong to my taste personally. Besides, I would rather buy the aloe mask by The Body Shop.
Almay – Eye Makeup Remover Pads
It took off the eye makeup very effectively, but it was quite oily. Other than that, the pads were rather rough which I also hated. 
 Lancome – Bi Facil Eye Makeup Remover
It removed waterproof eye makeup with ease and I did like it a lot. The only reason why I would not repurchase is because I find the Clinique one works just fine and it is cheaper.
Maybelline – Sensational Lipstick in Born with It
This was my first lipstick and I had it for more than two years. I liked it, did not love it. 
Products I will repurchase.
New Purchases!
