I love trying out and testing new products for my blog. Today, I got to switch things up a little as my wonderful kitty, Xander, helped me review a new cat treat: SHEBA Meaty Tender Sticks. Read on to see Xander’s thoughts!
Today I will be sharing my Irresistible Me Hair Extensions review. The company, which specializes in 100% natural Remy clip-in hair extensions, hair accessories and hair tools, reached out to me a couple weeks ago asking if I’d like to try out their hair extensions. Even though I had long hair at the time they contacted me (almost as long as their extensions), I had been wanting to cut it short for some time but had a few hesitations. First a little background on my hair – I’ve had it long for as long as I can remember and it’s relatively thick. For years, this long, thick hair was one of my favorite and most complimented features and my safety blanket – I was super self conscious about having a rounder face and felt the long hair gave it the illusion of looking leaner. Today, I’m not quite as self conscious, but I was afraid that once I cut my hair, I would realize the short hair didn’t suit me and that I also would miss having my long locks. To calm these fears, I had previously looked into hair extensions but got overwhelmed and gave up.
Enter Irresistible Me. When they contacted me, I was at the point where I was so unhappy with how damaged my hair had become, I was ready to just throw caution to the wind, and get it cut. Once so soft, my hair now felt dry and course no matter what hair masks and conditioning treatments I did and full of split ends (most likely the result of rarely cutting or trimming it to keep its length). What my hair needed was a fresh new cut to give it a fresh new start. With the assurance of having these hair extensions as a backup in a worst case scenario, I cut off over 12 inches of hair and got myself a nice little lob haircut. Luckily, I ended up loving the haircut but it does feel super strange not having long hair anymore.
Fortunately, with these super easy to clip-in hair extensions, I can have the best of both worlds anytime I want!
This month’s Ipsy bag theme is “Destination Chic” and it is filled with a great variety of products perfect for summer whether you have a destination trip coming up or just a day at the beach!
If you’re unfamiliar with Ipsy, it’s a beauty subscription service that sends you a cute little “glam bag” filled with 5-6 full or deluxe-sized products each month for just $10. The bags are catered towards your preferences (through a “beauty quiz” you take when you sign up and later through how you “rate” the products you receive) so the products in the bags vary from person to person. I have been an Ipsy subscriber pretty much since it started and have been very happy with the various products I have received from them. If you would like to sign up for your own Ipsy bag, click HERE (referral link).
Time for another Ipsy bag Unboxing/First Impressions post! This month’s theme is “Dreamers“.

What do you think about these tank tops?

Thanks again to Influenster for providing me with all of these products to try and review!
This went on very nicely with my Beauty Blender. It was light and easily blendable. I would say the coverage is light to medium but also build able – a little does a long way – you don’t want to overdo it or you might end up looking cakey. I don’t think you could achieve a full coverage look with this though. I’ve noticed several people have mentioned it has a poor wear time, but I wore it for over 8 hours without a primer or setting spray and I didn’t notice any splotchiness or oiliness. I was actually quite pleased with how it wore over time.
**May cause breakouts
**EDIT: This post and the accompanying video were done after only a “first impression” of the product. I have now been using it for almost a week and have been noticing that I’ve been breaking out horribly. I can’t remember the last time it’s been this bad – I usually only get one every now and then around my mouth area but I’ve broken out around my nose area as well this time. I’ve been very good about my skincare routine and the only thing that has changed in my makeup has been using this foundation so I can only assume it was the cause of the breakout. I’ve since decided to stop using the product 🙁
