Anyhow, yeah - very hard to grow out curly hair so it's long. Mine just keeps curling up more and more and gets wider, not longer. It's twice as long wet as it is when dry. tumbleweed.gif

For hair products, I keep it pretty simple. I use Mixed Chicks leave-in conditioner every day, applied wet, then I use a teeny bit of BioSilk, which my hair stylist friend turned me on to - that really makes your hair shiny and the curls nice and defined. The only drawback is it doesn't do anything to nourish the hair and there is some buildup, so I find I have to wash my hair more often to get it out. Normally, I only like to wash my hair with conditioner (plain old Aussie for curly hair), but when I need to shampoo it, I've been using Mixed Chicks, but I may switch to Aussie when I'm done with this bottle.

 

Once a month or so, I deep condition with a hair mask from Santa Maria de Novella: http://www.santamarianovellausa.com/product/SMN-Hair-Care-top/10721.html#.USgby6WXB8w + shower cap. Plus I never blow dry - only let it air dry up in a pony tail if I want more volume or down if I want maximum fluffy curl definition. I've been finally getting more regular hair cuts, and that is definitely improving general hair health for me too.

 

Now to get the rest of me healthy. nonono.gif


Had my gall bladder out last year -- very simple surgery and VERY good pain killers for after. winks.gif

And I know it's not gonna happen, but Erykah Badu would be amazing.

I don't really know who's popular these days, I just listen to the music I like online, but I don't read any magazines and don't have a tv, so I have no realistic idea who it could be. I think there's still a possibility that it could be Azealia Banks, which is pretty much the only newer artist I know and like, but it might as well be anyone else.

 

edit: Oh, and Kylie Minogue of course! I would go crazy for a Viva Glam Kylie lippie. heart2.gif

yeah, Kylie would be good.  i can see that.

aww man, I hope you feel better...  

 

I wash with conditioner too.  I have to try biosilk.  I didn't like mixed chicks. I have major shrinkage too.  If I could keep the length I have wet while dry, I'd love it.

Aren't those the blushes from the Nudes&Metallics collection? Only Barefaced is called Barefoot there, which might be a mistake.

Darn. Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to purchase things online. My friend is, so maybe I can give her cash IRL so she can purchase it online. :/

Thanks PP! I'm not too crazy about Mixed Chick's shampoo, but the leave-in conditioner has been good if I make sure not to use too much at a time. Have you found something similar that's more nourishing, because I could go for that!

I had my gall bladder out last year too.  I did some research beforehand and I made the mistake of watching a gall bladder surgery video on Youtube.  It scared the beejeezus out of me!!!   I don't recommend doing that!  Haha!  My surgery went smoothly and I found the pain and soreness afterwards more bearable than the gall bladder attacks.  All the best to you Liba!

I think it'd be cool to see a collab with Marina & The Diamonds (Marina Diamandis) her look for her latest album Electra Heart is a bit superficial/Stepford Wife-- which is the look she was going for, it's sort of an alter ego/stage character- but in general her actual style is really cool and I think she'd make some bright, fun lippies (I was thinking about it while watching her Oh No video). I guess she's been popular in the UK for a few years now, but she's just starting to get recognized/played here in the States since releasing Electra Heart (it has a lot more of a catchy mainstream, pop sound but I prefer it to most of the music played on the radio here, her first album is really good though; I just love her voice). I'm pretty sure Glee is actually supposed to cover one of her songs (How to be a Heartbreaker), so that'll definitely bring some attention to her music (I actually saw one of her music videos on E!, and I know she's touring here for the second time in the past year this May, and a lot of her shows sold out last time & are selling out this time too, so obviously she has some fanbase here) The more I think about it, the more excited I get.. I'd love to see MAC do some sort of mini collection with her! It seems like a bit of a stretch, but Azalea Banks seemed to be too, so who knows! *fingers crossed* Pleasssse MAC poke.gif

LIBA
Sorry to hear that you are ill:( Thank God I have never had to deal with gallstones but I knew someone who had them and she was miserable, in severe pain, and stayed nauseous and sick all the time until she had surgery. I pray for your speedy recovery.
It sounds like you have beautiful hair:) I love naturally curly hair. I think that it is challenging hair but worth it because it is beautiful hair. Straight hair is boring-lol. As for me, I have what I call "mutt" hair-haha half curly half straight:( AND thin. I used to love Biosilk until my hairdresser told me that it had alot of alcohol (which dries hair out) in it. I immediately switched to Josie Maran Argan Oil. It works for me:) Anyway, GET WELL SOON girlie:)

I would love to see Solange do Viva Glam. I love her style and, since she's known for mixing prints, a colorful, patterned lipstick tube would be really cool. I can dream lol

That'd be awesome. I've adored Marina since her first album and am really enjoying the really thoughtful look that's going into her look with this album. It adapts slightly between several different styles, but stays on the same vein. That would be an amazing collection, but I have my doubts. MAC seems to have a specific trend going for it with who it works with lately.

I got an instant vision of a turquoise blue lipstick bullet with yellow tiger print speckled on it. MAC's long overdue for some really crazy packaging.

My dad just got his out and he's doing soooo much better. Apparently he had been in pain and it was acting up for the past year. He couldn't figure out why his "back" hurt so bad all the time and why he just felt so run down. Turns out it was the gallbladder this whole time. He got it out and is doing so much better now, thank goodness.

 

I hope they can figure out the best choice for you and that you feel better soon too!

Kylie is an excellent suggestion for a new VG spokesperson.  She is most definitely glam :) Love her style!

I need some color stories for the summer collections or new product photos and/or swatches for the March and April ones. Getting bored over here!

Me too!

 

I'm skipping the Mineralized lipsticks, and only want a few products from ED and Baking Beauties. I hope to get all the neutrals from the Pro collection but I still have MAC money burning through my pocket book.
