Finesse – Kendall Jenner’s Favorite!

Untitled_Fotor

Hi guys!
Guess what? I just got lucky to receive the newest Finesse – Kendall Jenner’s Favorite Shampoo and Conditioner.

Now, let’s talk about this haircare shall we?

About the Product

Get hair that’s healthier, stronger, and more alive with Finesse®.

Finesse® Restore + Strengthen Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner

• Infused with active proteins, Finesse® Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner help restore and strengthen hair that is dry, damaged, stubborn, or sometimes frizzy. The active silk and soy proteins penetrate deep into the hair shaft, leaving your hair more moisturized and manageable. Your hair will feel clean and silky soft, while being easier to detangle and easier to style.

• Featuring Finesse’ cult-favorite clean, fresh scent

• SRP: $3.99 each (and only $1.99 at Walmart)

• Available at: Walgreens, Rite Aid, Walmart, and grocery chains such as Kroger, Shoprite, HEB, and Publix

These products were tested vigorously since day one and here are my thoughts.

MOISTURIZING – Lather into something wonderful! Finesse’s shampoo enriches & moisturizes hair deep down to the root leaving it smooth and easy to manage!

  • This shampoo smells pleasant but nothing special (smells like rose).
  • This shampoo lathers smoothly but it didn’t leave my hair smooth when dry.
  • It didn’t moisturize my hair but instead it felt dry and frizzy.
  • My scalp turned dry, itchy and I ended up having some dandruff.
  • This shampoo is a pass and will not repurchase again.

MOISTURIZING – A moisturizing conditioner that replenishes and penetrates deep into hairs’ roots. The perfect balance between softness and manageability!

  • This conditioner on the other hand is pretty good but not great!
  • This conditioner lathers really nicely and smoothly.
  • It smells like a medicated conditioner but it feels really good on the scalp.
  • It’s not moisturizing but it volumizes and kept my hair frizz-free.
  • I enjoyed using this conditioner paired with a different shampoo instead.
  • Will I repurchase this conditioner? possibly!

And there you have it!

This is a sponsored post but I did not receive any monetary compensation to share my honest thoughts.

Have you guys tried these Finesse Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner?

Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup Review

Brand Focus_Fotor

Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup

DESCRIPTION :

Finally, truly decadent makeup offers ultimate performance. The mousse-like texture feels like silk on your skin and the time release formula balances skin for a flawless look. All-day, flexible wear without flaking, caking, or feeling heavy.

thumb_img_0239_1024_fotorI purchased this product back in August of 2016 out of the whim. While browsing the makeup aisle at CVS Pharmacy, I noticed that this jar was labeled “NEW“. I wasn’t sure if this was really new but out of curiosity, I thought why not give it a try.

This Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup retails from $9.19 or more depending on where you buy them. CVS Pharmacy sells this for $13.99 but since I had multiple coupons during that moment, I ended up paying $6.79 which was a huge bargain!

I chose the shade BUFF (150) and it’s the lightest shade available at the store. This shade looks very natural based on what you see through the jar. But when I opened it, they actually looked a bit darker than what you see from the container.

What I like?

  • Super lightweight
  • Amazing consistency
  • Very easy to blend (I like using a foundation brush instead of a makeup sponge for easier application and flawless result)
  • Non cakey
  • Full coverage
  • Long wearing (sits on my skin from 7AM to 4PM or even longer)
  • Matte finish (I only apply a setting powder once and I’m shine free all day)
  • It didn’t irritate my skin (thumbs up to that!)

This foundation also turn one shade lighter after a few minutes from application (But, I don’t mind coz I set this foundation using my Sue Devitt loose powder which is a shade darker than this foundation so it neutralizes the end result). I’m sure to some, this is a big No-No but this didn’t bother me at all.

What I don’t like?

  • The jar is thick and heavy (I don’t mind) but with less product inside (only 23ml compared to Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation with 30ml for only $4.97)
  • You have to either dip your finger or brush into the jar to get the product out (not a big fan #makesureyourfingerisclean)
  • Choosing the right shade is a little bit difficult if you rely on the external appearance or color through the glass jar.

I’ve used this foundation majority of the summer months and I loved it so much! As you can see, I’m close to the finish line. 🙂
Would I repurchase this foundation? Yes, perhaps pick a different shade AND if it’s more affordable than $13.99. * CVS Pharmacy is currently having a Buy 1 Get 1 half off with a selling price of $15.29 while it retails for $10.77 at Walmart.*

Would I recommend this  foundation? Yes! If you don’t mind wearing a foundation that turn a shade lighter.

How about you? Have you guys tried this foundation?
