Review: Nexxus Ultimate Moisture Shampoo, Conditioner, and Deep Conditioner

I happened to received a sample pack in the mail with three products from Nexxus. It included: 
  • Nexxus Therappe Luxurious Moisturizing Shampoo
  • Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing Conditioner
  • Nexxus Humectress Hydrating Treatment Deep Conditioner
The Nexxus shampoo and conditioner is supposed to replenish and protect, leaving hair looking and feeling healthy. I decided to give it a try since my hair has been in dire need of moisture. After getting a few uses out of each sample, I thought I should share my opinion with you.

Sweater Weather Tag

Baby it's COLD outside! It's a cold, rainy fall day and I'm trying to stay warm. The heat's turned up and I'm snug in a comfy sweater sipping on some hot vanilla caramel tea. Now is the perfect time for me to do the Sweater Weather Tag! There are several different versions of this, but I got my questions from Kendra's blog Beauty by Kendra C.

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquers

After all of the rave reviews from the UK, I had to get my hands on a couple of Rimmel Show Off lip lacquers (also known as Apocalips) once they were released in the US. I've been using these lacquers for a couple months and I'm ready to share my thoughts.

FOTD: Red Lips

Today, or rather tonight, I'm wearing a classic red lip paired with a simple eye look. I think this is a timeless look that's especially great for all the holiday festivities to come. Keep reading for all the details.

Lipstick & Nail Polish Haul: Deals At The Drugstore

I stopped at Walgreens and Rite Aid yesterday to take advantage of some of their current sales. Here's some, but not all, of what I purchased. About half of the beauty items I purchased are for gifts, so I won't be showing those.

OOTD: Oxblood Pants

Almost a year to the day, I did my very first Outfit Of The Day post (see here). I was wearing a pair of oxblood/burgundy pants that I showed in my Oxblood color trend post. As a nod to that OOTD, I thought I'd wear the same pants in today's OOTD. Think of it as a modified Flashback Friday.

NOTD: OPI Russian Navy

After my week long break from dark polishes (shown in my last NOTD), I've decided, I'm ready for another dark nail polish.

Would You Rather Tag

I was tagged by Amelie from All Things Glitter and Beauty to do the Would You Rather Tag: Beauty Edition. I loved reading her answers to the tag (seen here); I just couldn't wait to answer them myself. 

There's some pretty tough choices to be made, so lets get to the questions!

FOTD: Daytime Smokey Eye

I mentioned in my October Favorites that I'm currently loving bold lip shades. However, chapped lip season has officially started for me, and I'm in no condition to pull of a bold lip until I mix up some of my favorite DIY Lip Scurb. In the meantime, I'm wearing a beautiful creamy lipstick in a subtle, natural shade to pair with with a daytime smokey eye for some added oomph. Read more to see what I used and find out how I created my eye look.

NOTD: Wet n Wild Mega Last in Sugar Coat

There's nothing quite like freshly painted nails. It's guaranteed to put a smile on my face and instantly make me feel better. New polish is just what I needed after spending the past few days, sick in bed, peeling off my polish from last weeks NOTD. Is anyone else guilty of being a polish peeler?

I opted for a fresh, light pink polish. It's not one of the usual shade for fall, but there's something refreshing about a light polish after wearing so many dark shades. Anyone else agree?

Your Opinion Please

I want to hear from you! 
Yes, you! 

I'm going to level with you-- I didn't have a post planned for today; I've been sick in bed since Thursday. I rarely have posts scheduled in advanced or ready to go for situations like this, but I'm going to try to start planning ahead. That's where you, my lovely readers/followers, come in...

October Favorites

I'm sad to say, October is over. It's time to recap some of my favorites of the month before falling in love with new products in November. 

As a reminder, I only mention the products (that I'm loving) that I haven't mentioned in previous Monthly Favorites. If you'd like to see the products I still love, check out my past Monthly Favorites. Now, on to October Favorites!
