Kiss Insta Wave Automatic Curler


Fashions comes and go, styles change but my “straight hair hairstyle” has been constant for almost a decade now. One of the reasons (actually The ONLY reason) being that I did not know how to style my hair besides using the friendly flat iron.

When I saw the Kiss Hair Curler , I was prepared to be disappointed while secretly hoping it would work.

So.. Here goes :

[ A word of advice : Please comb your hair straight to create a neat looking curl. ]

KISS InstaWave is a fully automatic tangle-free curler. I tried to test the tangle free theory by starting off with uncombed hair, it didn’t give me any issues besides a mess (well expected).

It’s been designed for use in any angle, with any hand. It Features an innovative Curl Dial with left/right curl direction option.
As a safety feature, product Automatically shuts off after 90 minutes.
It also comes with a 2 heat settings with a low/high switch for a maximum temperature of 420.

**Tip: Switch between curling right and curling left to create the most natural looking curls.

This video gives a quick look at the product :

The site for the KISS InstaWave is KISSInstaWave.com
In the US, KISS InstaWave is available in Target, Ulta & Amazon.com and it retails at $59.99 USD.

In Canada, Kiss InstaWave is available at Walmart.
It will soon be available on Walmart Canada.com – it is expected to be live on November 20th.

OVERALL: The product doesn’t tug your hair at all! I have tried to go closer to the scalp and it simply unwinds the hair on pulling, so it’s a safe product to use. The heat setting is quite good, I had no smoke or burning of my hair that I usually get from my flat iron. Since I have shoulder length hair, it didn’t make dramatic curls but it added that bounce and style I needed, so it definitely works on hair as short as mine or longer.
Is it worth buying? I must say that it’s a revolutionary product!! Give it a try and it is sure to keep you impressed.
FYI : On turning on the machine makes a low humming noise, the company as CONfIRMED that it’s normal and not a hazard at all.

W7 Captain Matte Foundation, Chunky Cheeks Blush Tokyo, Chunky Bronzer In Hawaiian Bronze

*Press Sample, Affiliate Link

For those who are new to the brand W7 Make Up,

the inspiration of two entrepreneurial young men from West London was created in 2002. Their aim – that every woman should have access to an extensive range of high quality cosmetics at an affordable price.

The company has grown year on year and now W7 boasts a collection of over 500 products including: nail polish, lipsticks and glosses, eyeshadows and more mascaras than you could dream off.

The first thing about the products are the way they are designed. Super simple to use, neat and needs NO beauty tools !!! (YAY!!)

The blush and the bronzer stick comes in a lipstick like form, where it can be twisted at the bottom to being out more product. It’s easy to apply directly to the face and blends very easily with the finger tips. I have noticed that no matter how much you apply, there is no way that it can over-applied.

Swatches are heavily applied and easily blended with fingertips.

The one thing I was most impressed was by the Foundation. Oh wow! It comes in a nozzle tube, you squeeze only as needed. I never need to use a concealer as it’s very high coverage. It forms a perfect dewy skin finish. Again, cannot be over applied and blends with fingertips. The formula has a cooling sensation on skin and lasts really well without the need to powder.

OVERALL: I usually don’t wear browns for they don’t suit me and add a mature look to my face.. I stick with Red’s, Pink’s and Orange Hues but this was so subtle with hints of brick red that it’s a great fall color and a refreshing new member in my collection. Stays pretty long once you let it dry and set after applying on the lips. Feels light for a gloss and I must say I recommend it a try.

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm In 215 Shameless

Just a quick post here.. It’s a lip crayon, twist up at the bottom so no need to sharpen.
Easy to use and glides effortlessly!
Matte finish. Shameless is a blackened violet plum color. Swatches make the color appear lighter for some reason, but trust me when i say it’s more blackened plum, I hated it !

OVERALL: It’s a nice product but the color killed it for me. PersonalIy, I don’t see any skin tone being able to carry it well without looking like an attention seeker for all wrong makeup reasons .. Maybe a different color would work better .. I tried a red one months back and remember not liking it either. Let me know if you liked this product, from a fan of matte lipsticks I was absolutely disappointed. Colors come off too bold.
