Written while enjoying this spectacular weather!
Hello and a very Happy Monday to all of you! Welcome back to Touch of Tay, if you are new welcome to my blog. On Monday’s we like to do a little thing called Makeup Monday where I tell you about new beauty products that I have purchased recently and how I am feeling about them.
Let’s get on with it.
AG FAST FOOD
A few weeks ago I mentioned I found the brand AG Hair Care at Ulta when looking for a heat protectant. This time on the hunt for a new shampoo I picked up the AG Hair Care Fast Food Shampoo. This shampoo is supposed to give your hair lots of hydration which is exactly what I need since I do wash my hair almost every day because I workout 3-5 days a week. I know washing your hair frequently is not good because your hair is losing a lot of its natural oils which is why I am hoping this shampoo bring my hair back to life.
I have been using the Loreal EverPure Volume Shampoo for a few years now since I do color my hair and needed a sulfate free shampoo plus it is vegan and salt-free. Fast Food is salt-free, PABA free, paraben free, gluten free, DEA free, and is not tested on animals.
I got a pretty good lather going with Fast Free, but I get more of a lather with the Loreal. The scent is good, but nothing great and I felt like it cleaned my hair, unfortunately, I need to continue to use it in order to see if my hair is being hydrated.
You can’t really compare the prices since Loreal is a drugstore brand and AG isn’t but in case you were wondering…the Loreal is $7.99 for 8.5oz and the AG is $22 for 10oz.
The Ulta by me put up a new display for NYX brushes SO long ago but never filled the display with any brushes. I had been waiting so long for them to bring out the NYX brushes that I think I screamed when I finally saw they stocked the brushes.
I picked up two brushes, the Pro Blending Brush ($9.99) and the Pro Flat Detail Brush ($8.99). I used both yesterday and really like the blending brush, it blended my eyeshadow like a dream and didn’t pick up too much product. I recommend this brush. The flat detail brush was OK, nothing great but wasn’t entirely disappointing. I would say it performed a little less than my Ulta flat shadow brush that I got with the Ulta Nudes palette.
While browsing the isles at Ulta I came across the brand H20+ which looked very interesting. I picked the Elements Wipe Away Face Clothes for $18 (45ct) to replace my Clinique makeup wipes in my gym bag. They are very similar to the Clinique wipes, they feel the same, have the same level of moistness, and the packaging is almost identical. Like the Clinique wipes I had to use two H20+ wipes to get all my makeup off.
Price comparison, the Clinique wipes are $14 for 50ct and the H20+ wipes are $18 for 45ct.
I needed a new Beauty Blender but didn’t feel like going to Sephora because the only Sephora near me is in the mall and I just wasn’t feeling strong enough for that. Instead, I have decided to try something new and get the Real Techniques Miracle Diamond Sponge. I have not used it yet, and that is only because I don’t feel like putting on a full face of makeup on my day off today. But I am going to try it out tomorrow and Wednesday and have a full review for you on Wednesday about my thoughts!
If you have made it to the end, I thank you! I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and Tuesday and I will see you back here on Wednesday with my Miracle Diamond thoughts!
