Review: Hollywood Beauty Olive Creme...

Tuesday, May 05, 2009


I know I haven't had alot hair product reviews lately. Well, its because all the products that I've acquired have not been review worthy...literally not worth writing about good or bad. I do reviews on the best and worst but nothing has really did any thing special on the hair front.
I'm always looking for a hair moisturizer. I find that the best ones come in small containers and higher prices. OR they are filled with petroleum and mineral oil which blocks the scalp. I never 'grease' my scalp. I keep it clean with bi-weekly shampoos or co-washes and I haven't had a dry, itchy scalp since.
So, I was browsing around my new found love, the local BSS and came across a $.95 mini jar of Hollywood Beauty Olive Cream. Good price and great for just trying it out.
I love it!! It has no petroleum or mineral oil. With just a dollop, it moisturizes my hair thoroughly. Its good on my thick,4B hair. But are some negatives....
Because its a 'Cream', it takes a bit longer to soak in. I have to rub it in gently to get the creamy white look into my hair. It also smells like roses which I don't like.
More good news though (lol!)...the 7.5oz jar was only 3.28 @ my BSS.:)

RG Project: Santee Mineral Eyeshadows...

Okay...I've found some more Santee Cosmetics here and there around the area. I got this great palette@ Almost Pink for $3...
Great pigmentation...this palette had less fall out. I love the neutrals in the colors. They look so satin-y on!! Blending is still key, but alot less went into this look. I've found that the staying power of this Santee shadows are great with a eyeshadow primer. I don't have any of the real popular e/s primers...I just use a L'Oreal H.I.P. Paint in Captivating( a really nude taupe color). It works wonders...

N.O.T.D. Trade Secrets Evita...

Hi Everyone! I wore Trade Secrets Evita this weekend on my tips and toes to spice things up. I don't own alot of red nail colors...reminds me of my Mother who ALWAYS wears red polish!


I don't think Trade Secrets makes nail polish anymore. I got these at my favorite salvage store for .25 a piece...I got like 20 different colors...


What I like about Evita is that its a creamy red with a bit of a orange undertone. Blue undertone reds are weird on me. It reminds me of tomato soup:)...
