nuNAAT Review: Karite with Shea Butter (Shampoo/Conditioner and leave in detangler)

A couple weeks ago, I got this Karite Special with Shea Butter hair set from nuNAAT. I didn't really use the hair mask and frizz thing so I'm not reviewing that. This is only for the Shampoo/Conditioner/leave-in. I think you're supposed to use all three after you wash your hair so, yeah. 

Karité  Special With Shea Butter

Smell: It's.. kinda gross actually. I don't like the smell of shea butter. But over time, I was pretty meh about the smell. 

Texture: It's pretty smooth. My hair feels REALLY smooth. I used it over a period of 3 weeks (with all three products) and my hair feels a lot better. It's not oily, but it feels smoother, but not heavy at all. I like that A LOT. Even though it's supposed to moisturize your hair, it doesn't feel oily at all. Okay, nothing more to say besides: it's good, smooth and shiny hair, not oily. 

Price: This shit exists in walgreens and discount stores. It's not expensive (even though the walgreens website says "priced per store", whatever that means". It's probably like a higher end drugstore product (meaning 10 dollars?). 

Recommended: Yes, I like it. It's probably not good for people who have oily hair or for people with serious hair dryness problems though. 

Sorry for the short review. I'm kinda busy and.. yeah.

Late Haul from Sephora and MAC

When my friend Shanna came over, we went to the MAC store and Sephora. I bought Up the Amp lipstick (a purple), the Sephora favorites rollerball set (gave 2 to my sister), and Leotard Optional by OPI for Sephora. 

It's more pink that it shows here. 

so blurry. so fuggy

I've been looking for the perfect nude. This seems to be it for me.

Top with a peplum

I screwed up a bustier big time. I had to pick out the boning and lining and try to salvage it. 

Making a peplum is easy. It's like.. a mini circle skirt. I hate sewing chiffon. Get a scroll foot to hem. 

Really awful shots. I have to do a outfit with it eventually.

DIY: Miu Miu Inspired Tights

Everyone is obsessed with the swallows on Miu Miu's stuff. I love it too. I used nylon tights, acrylic paint and clear nail polish. 

Obviously I used stencils. 

After everything is dry, just peel off the tights, wear them backwards and paint on your stuff again.
