Hiya Everyone! 
Since I don't do Monthly Favorites on my youtube or blog and I haven't done one of these kinds of posts in a rather long time; I thought it was necessary to do one! :-)
Im going to keep it Short , sweet and to the point. Hopefully the Photos will do all the talking needed :-)

HAIR

Last week it had its own post and now its landed in my hair favs! Simply just because I love the way it smells! This Awesome Argan Oil Find from Poundland was my best discovery this year! No words can describe its awesomeness! Gotta also have the Olive Oil Spray since I have dry hair and this mini version pops in my bag for easy on the go!

EYESHADOW PALLETS


My MUA pallet has surprisingly been my go to pallete this month!  I'm a huge nudey and don't really use colours too often ! That being said, when I do use colors I run straight to my custom Pixi Pallete! The colours are divine!

LUSH American Cream Hair Conditioner - Review

 Hey everyone ! 
Welcome to my stealstylist.com #7daysoflush post.
(If you are completely confused right now, then head on over to my TUMBLR and you will see all my lush posts ... but i think the hastag is pretty much self explanatory lol )

Since i've been going into LUSH a lot more recently, I thought I would broaden my horizons and look for something other than a skincare product. I always knew Lush made hair products but i've been too scared to try them . Being Afro Caribbean , its not always easy to find products that work really well for my hair , so I tend to stick to the ones I know work . I'm yet to find a "holy grail" product for my hair type , but i'm always on the lookout for new things. 

Picking a conditioner from Lush was definitely a challenge as I seriously had no clue what I was looking for . All I knew was that I have frizzy, dry,  curly hair. The Lush lady kindly showed me a few products that MAY work for me, and I wanted to try them all! However I thought it would be wise to just pick one and work my way through them all until I find the best one. 

As you probably guessed, the one product I chose was the American Cream conditioner. (I chose this because it smelled the best ... lol )
The product label states that this is an extra creamy conditioner , but I personally thought it wasn't thick enough. Most products for my hair type are generally extremely thick and creamy because the moisture is needed. Monday I used the product for the third time, and there is still enough in the tub for at least 3-4 more washes so a little goes a long way. 

The best thing about the conditioner is the scent , it really does smell like a milkshake and the smell lasts for about two days which is perfect because I co-wash every two days!

After using the product my hair felt incredibly soft however it did nothing ... and I mean NOTHING to help with the frizz. To be honest the frizz is the most important thing when it comes to a conditioner. My hair can can feel as soft as silk but it means nothing if it's frizzy. 

Overall its a great product for providing moisture and softening my hair and I would definitely recommend it to others if those are the results they are trying to receive.  I will continue to use it until the bottle is done, (gotta get my money's worth) and I will not repurchase any time soon. 

Lush you will be seeing me soon! I'll be on the lookout for a new hair product! 


Have you ever used this product before? 
What do you think of the LUSH hair care line?

An Afternoon Of Pampering


Hey lovelies! It's Thursday! So you know what that meaaannnnnnnsss.... lol
YUP a new blog post !!
 That being said i'm feeling extra bloggy today, so I have not one, but TWO blog posts for you today. 
I refuse to leave the house today because my "darling" daughter decide to keep me up all night and wake me up ridiculously early! 
So in her nap time i'm going to take FULL advantage of that me time and pamper myself!
(If you're a mother also, then you know just how stressful the terrible twos can be!)

First things first! pop the kettle on and make some coffee! 
I really sHould be napping along side my daughter since i'm sleep deprived , but since i'm not, I need a major caffeine buzz. When she wakes up she's not going back to sleep until only god knows when!

Anyhoosers.... on to the good stuff!

The contacts come out and the glasses come on! 

HAIR
It just so happens to be Co- wash Day today so i will be having the complete pampering experience :-) 
The first thing i'm going to is wash my hair with my Argan Oil conditioner which I actually got from Poundland believe it or not! Its the best cheap conditioner iv've ever used. It completely hydrates my scalp and softens my roots! I use this once and really scrub it into my hair . I use it like shampoo, although it obviously does not lather up like shampoo , it cleans my hair really well. 
(especially if I haven't been using many products  in-between washes) 

Next i'll apply my olive oil replenishing conditioner. If you have ever used this company's deep conditioning mask pack, then you'll know what this is. Its the exact same thing, just in a bottle :-)
I LOVE this stuff , my hair its at its softest right after using this product. 
ill put this on my hair and cover it with a shower cap as it has to be left on for about 45 mins but I always leave it on for at least an hour!


MUSIC
Hey I gotta have a little fun right?
I blast all my fav KARAOKE jams and sing into my hairbrush for about 10 mins 
(You know you do it to so don't judge me! lol )

FACE
What kind of pamper afternoon would this be without a face mask? 
I chose to use a face mask by LUSH cosmetics  called Catastrophe Cosmetic.
Im a huge fan of this mask because the consistency is thick like clay and the smell is divine!

NAILS
While the face mask is soaking into my skin, it's time to paint my nails! It' spring and i'm really into the lighter pastel shades right now. So i'm going for a cute light purple!
What do you think?

TV
Since I have another 10 mins for my nails to dry i'll catch up on an episode of the Vampire Diaries 
( I'm on s4 ep21)
Once they are dry I can wash off my face mask and finish the episode until my daughter wakes up!

That's it guys! 
My pamper afternoon is complete! 
When was the last time you had a pamper afternoon? 
What do you do when you have one?
Let me know in the comments below!
ALSO you can't forget i'm doing DAILY VIDEOS, so i'll see you all on YOUTUBE & twitter!  xo

My Top 5 Makeup Brushes


Hey lovelies! This post as been a long time coming, as I  had planned to do this post months ago , but somehow could not take the "perfect" picture! (no really my bushes were never actually clean enough to photograph lol )

I am one of those people who gets up in the morning , gets washed dressed and does her makeup , regardless whether i'm actually going anywhere. That's because i'm either going to film for my channel, or for the sudden mood change I may have and do decide to go out somewhere. When doing my makeup, although I have a decently large amount of makeup brushes , there are a certain brushes I grab straight away.

Vincent Longo 28 Buff Brush
I'll instantly grab this brush for an all over foundation coverage . Its perfect for blending in a concealer highlight and a Contouring bronzer. There will be no brush strokes on your face. The only problems I had with this brush were the first 4 or 5 uses there was a Large amount of shedding! (very very annoying) However after washing the brush, (which I should have done when I first bought it) number 28 became my go-to foundation brush that I've had  for about 3 years now and its still going strong!

H&M Foundation Brush
This brush was a recent purchase of mine, I was on the market for a smaller foundation brush and could not be happier with my choice! It's completely budget friendly and has ZERO shedding. Perfect for light foundation , such as Tinted Moisturizer and Bb Creams.

Vincent Longo 26 Highlighter Brush (currently unavailable)
This became my blush brush right away. There was no question what I was going to use this brush for when I purchased it. Although it may have been made for other uses, it has served be well as a brush for applying the perfect amount of blush . Especially when using darker toned blushes, you are about to apply a light coverage. (unlike the thicker brushes where you end up applying too much and look like a clown.... yes i'm guilty of it) The bristles thin out at the end so it makes applying powder blushes a breeze.

Blush Brush
I wish I could tell you who makes this brush but I honestly don't know. My cousin had left this brush at my house when we were having a major makeup Session and it became my new contouring brush! If you have seen this brush before then please tell me what set its from because I surely would love to know. (can't ask her because I don't want her to know I have it lol ssshhhhhhhhh)

Urban Decay Powder Brush
I actually use this to apply powder ... surprisingly  ...lol I use this to apply any loose powder or to apply a finishing powder . Although I don't use powder everyday, spring is upon us and ill be using it much more over the next few months!
