I'm beyond excited to be a part of a new product launch with a company I love...
Softens, smoothes, protects, comes with a unicorn… in the world of hair care and beauty, fake news is nothing new! Whether it's claims of overnight transformations or younger hair – how does that even work – beauty junkies are always looking for and analyzing the next new salve, spray, or spritz. Maybe it’s the Asian in me, but one thing that’s always been important to me is the science behind the products. If I can understand how and why a product is going to accomplish the claims it makes, I’m much more likely to drop a dime on it. With hair care this is even more important. It takes time, money, and magic to make my hair look the way it does! I get tons of questions about my hair, and I love to support high-quality hair care. Living Proof came onto my radar years ago, when I was looking into what makes hair smooth and how to really treat damage. They had just a single product at the time, and I had to go on a waiting list to try it! Once I finally got my hands on it, I was hooked. I had to know what the secret was. I was surprised to learn about silicones and damaging ingredients contained in tons of hair products. Living Proof took to science to find a solution without damaging ingredients and created what has grown into a luxurious and comprehensive hair care line. I was thrilled when I got to be included in the launch of their next great product – especially one for over processed hair like mine!
The product is called Restore Perfecting Spray, and is in stores today! Spray the light-weight miracle mist on to towel-dried hair and wait for the thank you card from your hair in the mail. (Seriously, my hair loves me now). It has time-released conditioning, lending strength, smoothness, shine, and heat protection up to 400 degrees!
THANK YOU so much to Living Proof for sending me this fab new product! I'm so happy to be a #PROOFIE and lend support to their amazing brand!
Cop some for yourself at a fine hair-retailer near you- such as Sephora or Ulta, or from the Living Proof webpage - it's $28.00 and you won't regret it!

Love her or hate her, Kylie Jenner knows how to not only sell but sell-out of a lip gloss. Some of her biggest collections have been limited release, typically selling out in minutes. As I've ventured into beauty blogging, I knew I had to check out the hype. What started with a single lip kit has evolved into a minor obsession. As with any purchase that passes through my pocketbook, the products endure heavy scrutiny when determining if they live up to their promises.
In the land of lipsticks, wearability is king, and in this case, it's King Kylie. The colors look great on all different skin tones, the formula is long-wearing, and there's great color payoff. In her first-time kollab with sister Khloe, the KoKo collection was born, and I knew it was a must-have. The official colors were KHLO$, OKURR, DAMN GINA, and GORG.
For those who find Kylie cosmetics a little pricey, the kits are a great starting point. It scores high with versatility and value. The Koko Kollection has four full-sized lip colors and sold for just $40 and an intense supply and demand deadline.
Before the kollab was announced, I'd never attempted to get any of the products on release day. I'd heard it was a difficult process, with inventory often selling out within minutes. When the site opened for sales, I was sent to a waiting screen within five seconds, before I could even get the item in my cart. In the site's holding area, it explains to buyers that there are so many customers attempting the same activity that you're waiting until your turn to get to a checkout screen if the inventory level is available. Several minutes passed, and I got to my cart to check out. After entering all my info, I waited for the transaction to complete. A few more minutes later, I had an order confirmation, the kollection was sold out, and I survived my first shopping experience of a Kylie product launch. Little did I know this would be valuable for future releases... but more on that later!
My order shipped so quickly and I had the products in my hands just days later. Check out the colors and let me know your faves! :)
