Diary of a Nouveau Nappyhead Part VI

I have two more hair products to review from Oyin Handmade, Honey Hemp Conditioner and Grand Poo Bar.

Oyin Grand Poo Bar- Grand Poo Bar is Oyin's answer to shampoo with out the harsh detergents such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate. Because my hair is still short I just rubbed the bar over my wet hair. It immediately lathered and rinsed out beautifully. One wash and my scalp felt fresh. Plus it seemed to be unscented which I think all ethnic hair shampoos should be. What's the point of hair smelling like strawberries when it doesn't last? Plus that's just one more alcohol based ingrediate to put on your precious locks. I will continue to use this in between No Poo. I'll use the Grand Poo Bar every other week.

Oyin Honey Hemp Conditioner-In my opinion the best conditioner I've used yet! I slathered it on put on a plastic cap and left it there for about an hour. My hair was felt silky soft and stayed that way all week. I can't help to think it was the Honey Hemp Conditioner that did it. You even have an option of not even rinsing it out, which I almost didn't do!


Super Rave!!: Loreal HIP Flawless Liquid Makeup

I finally used my Loreal HIP Flawlesss Liquid Makeup in the past couple of days. The reason why I hadn't gotten around to using it was because I'm so love with my Queen Collection Foundation. As you can see I am not a foundation snob. I left that back on steps of 764-201 when my mom came and packed me up to moved me back home. I knew that $25 plus foundations were going to cease. Around that move,I was digging the last particles out of my Becca Foundation stick. After trial and error, I devised a plan on how to pick a drugstore foundation. But I get to that later.

Loreal HIP Flawless Liquid Makeup in Cappucino-I admit being a little skeptical about this foundation. I didn't know if I wanted to try a "high intensity pigment" foundation. But after I"Grand Hustled" a free one, I thought that I wasn't losing any money. The range of colors come in either yellow undertones and red undertones. I pass that first test because I knew which one I had all ready. I started at the darkest color and put three swatches on my jawbone.Cappucino blended the best in the store. At home I put it all over and surprisingly it works great. It soaked right in and gives a medium coverage, enough to give eveness but doesn't look like a mask. I do like alot!!

Because every foundation I do own now is drugstore I feel the need to share some of my buying a foundation from a drugstore tips:

1) NEVER buy a foundation that is packaged in plastic. My reason:If I can test it right there then I'm not going to buy it that take home and then it doesn't work.

2)Bring a hand held mirror. Not a compact mirror but I small mirror with a handle that will show your whole face in it.

3)Test belong the jaw line. Something I learned from makeup counters and magazines. It does give you the best idea for which shade works.

4) If it is day time, go outside and look it the foundation on your face to see if it is natural looking

5)If it doesn't work...take it back!

My Fav's from the drugstore foudation:
CG Queen Collection
Loreal True Match
Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse
Maybelline Even Fresh
Maybelline Pure Makeup
Loreal HIP Flawless Liquid Makeup
