Herbal Essenses "Tousle Me Softly" Range Review

Touchably Soft Shampoo. Get a perfect start ti an imperfect look. Im tousled hair's first love with a refreshing cleaning. My formula, infused with wild violet and pomegranate, smell extra luscious and leaves you with a strong urge to tousle.
Touchably Soft Conditioner. If success is a sexy mess, then let your locks go loose and beg to be touched. Ill give your hair the conditioning goodness to tousle away, with protection from styling damage. My formula infused with wild violet and pomegranate helps keep strands soft, tangle free, frizz less and virtually perfect so the only thing left to do is mess it up.
Tousling Spray Gel. Im more than a spray gel. Im a messt-style master, with my light weight, targeted sprat and violet splash fragrance. Ive got the control you need to make your style as incredibly imperfect as you want and to hold it flexibly and frizz free. One spray and youll see how good it feels to be a little messy.
I always buy products that would mean I wouldnt have to use any heat styling tools on my already damaged hair. I love the "tousled" look, but my hair would always go frizzy and lank. With these three products my hair strands have a beautiful, soft wave to them!! How I achieved this look;
  1. shampoo twice
  2. condition (leave in for about a minute or so)
  3. towel dry
  4. blow dry my fringe straight
  5. spray the tousling spray gel into my lengths and lightly onto my roots
  6. roll into bun, crocodile clip in place
  7. leave to air dry
Voila!!! If its humid, raining, or Ive been running around, I put some smoothing cream/gel/hair product onto my lengths to tame fly aways. I haven't tried the products seperately, but I believe that this trio works magic! Love it :)

Maybelline Lash Stiletto/Voluptuous Review

Ive had my Maybelline Lash Stiletto for a few months now, and just the other week I decided to purchase the new Maybelline Lash Stiletto "Voluptuous". Here's my comparison between the two.

The top one (black) is the original Lash Stiletto and the bottom one (red) is the new "voluptuous" mascara.

The original claims that the brush "grips and extends" each lash and coats from every angle. It has an "elastic formula" that stretches lashes for "provocative" length. Pro vitamin B5 formula conditions and smooths for "black patent shine".

The Maybelline Lash Stiletto Voluptuous claims that "now long lashes dont have to be skinny" and that their "dual action" brush stretches as it thickens each lash for "dramatic length and volume". Their rich cream formula  "adds the most seductive finish".
 From the picture below you can see that the two brushes are different. The original is triangular (the pointy end helps you get to hard to read lashes) and the voluptuous is curved slightly and the bristles are thicker too.
I absolutely HATE the voluptuous wand! It could just be me, but it doesnt "grab" my lashes, and because of the thick brush and my thin lashes, I just get chunks of mascara on my eyelids. The brush that the original Lash Stiletto has, however, is amazing, and it gets to all my lashes. It has coarse bristles that are very narrow and they dont bend, so pretty much wherever you place the mascara, it will go!
Because I have no issue with the actual formula of the voluptuous mascara, Ive decided to switch the brushes. My original Maybelline Lash Stiletto has basically run out anyway, so Im just going to use up the rest of the voluptuous formula using the original brush.
To sum it up, basically, Id give Maybelline Lash Stiletto an 8/10 (nothing wrong with the mascara, but I still prefer my Loreal Telescopic mascara!), but I won't even rate the "Voluptuous" mascara. Id recommend the original, but I wouldnt recommend the "Voluptuous". I think Maybelline just got cocky when the original Lash Stiletto did so well and sold so many, that theyd try it with a different brush.
