Review: Sephora Outrageous Metallic Taupe: Picture&Swatches

Hello everyone! I was at Sephora over the past weekend and I was in the clearance section looking around and I found this jewel! I remember Beauty Broadcast raving about this shade of taupe from Sephora and I had to get it to try it. I;m so glad I did, every thing Emily said was true. This rich and creamy shadow applies super smooth on to the lids and truly can act like a one eye look. This is a pigmented pressed shadow with a textured  layer.  I just have to load up my brush once and it will give my lids the most beautiful wash of color on. This applies to the lid like a silver dark gray and will fade a almost purple color in the crease when blended. This is super beautiful and a great pick. This was only $7 on clearance and if  you come across this shade at Sephora I highly recommend you pick it up!
Here are some close up picture of the shadow, you can really see the texture and the color.

This is an eye look I did using only the Taupe shade. 
I really hope everyone can find this color and pick it up!
Hope you enjoyed this post!
Love Ash

Trick to Silky Straight Hair

When I was really young I had super straight, long hair. I never had to worry about frizz or flyways but as I got older and began to style my hair more, I noticed that my hair started to lose its bone straight appearance and started to changing to have slight wave in the strands. I've actually come to love my new hair, it give me more body and shape to my hair with out having to style it. But there are days when I want bone straight hair and it took me a while to figure out a combo of products that could give me straight hair with out weighing it down. 
My trick is to start with damp hair and use a in leave in conditioner spray and my current favorite is the Aussie Hair Insurance leave in conditioner. I like doing this trick when I do morning showers and when my hair is still damp I spray this all over my hair and try to coat as much hair with as few spritz as possible. I like this one because it smells like coconuts. It also acts like a detangler, which is a god send for me, as my hair gets longer it gets extremely knotted and tangled even after I condition it in the shower.
After the spray is worked into the hair I finish off with Biosilk. I use only a quarter size amount of product and massage it into the strands only middle to tip. I avoid the roots to avoid an oil scalp. I picked this up for $17 at Ulta and I'm glad I did. This helps to smooth out my hair while protecting  and adds a great shine. 
I apply this with my hands and smooth it onto my hair. What I really like about this is that I can use this wet or dry. This is the final step to my trick. Biosilk adds the needed shine and slick to my hair that makes it stays strait and smooth. Another plus is that this smells amazing and it last a while in my hair. 

This combo of products has helped me in keeping my hair nourished and  looking healthy.  I like to use the leave in conditioner everyday just to keep my hair detangled and conditioned and this combo help me to get my straight hair. I highly recommend both of these products! I hope this trick helps you achieve straight, smooth silky hair!
Granted I know I already have mostly straight hair this trick can still work with anyone. This could be a finishing step to freshly straitened hair to add shine and silkiness. Never the less I hope this helps!

Review: Tarte Amasonian Clay waterproof Brow Moose

Hi everyone! As some of you may know I am a brow junkie. I love having shapely and defined brows all day , everyday! I picked this gem up at  Hautelook sale a while back and I have been using it ever sense I got it. This retails for $28 at full price, which is a little excesses for such a small item... This little jar holds 3.4g of product but it was on sale for $12 on the site. This came with a double ended spoolie brush. One end is a dense angle brush that is firm and the other a spoolie brush used to comb and blend the product through the brows. 
This tiny little thing packs a punch and I am happy to say that a little goes a long way. This waterproof formula last forever on my brows and I have barely made a dent. I have been using this for a good while, I'd say about 3 months and I have barely broke though the top layers. I still have a almost full jar and this is my everyday brow product. This hasn't shown any signs of drying out at all, there is no separation from the sides of the jar and the texture has stayed the same. In the jar its creamy yet dry (wax like) so when it is applied to the brows it holds like a wax cream and dries to a  powder finish. When it is finished setting it gives a very clean defined brow,yet very soft  as if I were to use powder to fill them in. It holds my brow hairs in place all day and the color never fades. 
This product is waterproof and is a god send in the summer. Humidity, sweat and water proof. I love this. With the rate of how slowly I am using this product up this will last me a long time so the price tag isn't so bad. I think its worth it and I will definitely repurchase this full price. I just love it that much
I hope this review was helpful guys!
