Pink Revlon Ceramic Hair Straightener/ Flat Iron Review

Although I've never had a hair straightener before, I have spent numerous hours watching pursebuzz youtube videos so that I know that this product is just okay. My hair is not that frizzy, but even so, I have to run the straightener through a couple times for it to be straight. However, after about an hour or so, it gets poofy. It's still straight-ish, but it has a lot of volume... which it shouldn't. The hair straightener heats up quickly, but on the other hand, it heats up so fast and gets so hot that it burns my hands! I'm quite sure that that's not what it is supposed to do. There also isn't a grip on the handle to hold, which also adds on to the hand-burning.
What I like about this is that you can manually adjust the temperature from 0-25 degrees Celsius.

Overall, 2 out of 5 stars!

Sally Hansen's Advanced Hard as Nails Strengthening Topcoat (Nail Polish) Review

I have only recently started using top/overcoat on my nails. I never saw the necessity in it before. But topcoat really is important in doing your nails. Painting nails, overall, is bad. The horrid smell definitely is not healthy, and I don't think paint going over your nails layer after layer is good either. Then, once your nail color chips or you get bored of it, removing it with nail polish remover isn't a plus to your health. I'm pretty sure the stench is even worse than that of nail polish.
However, using topcoat will make your polish last almost twice as long without chipping, therefore, making painting your nails less harmful to you!
But THIS top coat is terrible. BAD BAD BAD. I don't know why, but even when my nail polish is completely dried, when I apply this topcoat, it makes my polish UNdry, and ruins it. I hate it whenever I spend a long time making my nails perfectly smooth and shiny, and then I accidentally touch them, and there's a big smudge on my nail. Well, this topcoat does that. It smudges the color and creates a lump of uneven polish on my nail. IT SUCKS. Don't buy this.
PS. Like the picture I took of it? That is the product of a GOOD CANON camera. My stupid Casio Exilim one doesn't even have a macro function. Well, not one that I can find at least. >;(

America's Next Top Model Cycle 14 Episode 1

Since I missed the premier of Tyra Bank's ANTM Season 14, I am now watching it at It is taking FOREVER to load, but it is better than looking for all those fragments of each episode on youtube.

Although I am not a big fan of Tyra Banks, I have to say that she looks amazing! Her hair changed how she looks completely! I definitely like the simple, short, fun, and young look much better. It gives her a less intimidating appearance, though she still has her annoyingly cocky personality. Her makeup is also GORGEOUS in this first episode. It looks so perfect that it's probably airbrushed, so that's why.

Anyhow, love the new look! Love America's Next Top Model!

Best Lip Balm Ever!

My newly-found favorite chapstick: Eco Lips. It's made of organic ingredients only, it's SPF 30, and made in the US. AND IT SMELLS LIKE HONEY (= I was doubtful at first when my mom gave it to me; she got it for free. However, you shouldn't judge a product by its price! For some reason, mine says Kaiser Permanente on it, so maybe they sponsered Eco Lips?

(Sorry for the ugly picture. I took it using the webcam of my computer, and photoshopped it instead of using a real camera)

I did not find my exact lip balm on amazon, but they have some other variations and flavors! Check them out!
