L'Oreal Ever Pure

I was sent a box from Influenster filled with new L'Oreal Ever Pure Moisture shampoo, conditioner, and a leave in elixir. Influenster & L'Oreal were very generous to give full sized products. My job was to try them out so here is what I thought!

First up, the L'Oreal Ever Pure Moisture Shampoo
First discovery the packaging is very nice. Pretty colors, catches the eye. Looks nicer than some other drugstore brands. 2nd thing I noticed was the smell of course! Smells very girly, fresh and floral. Not over powering, but very nice scent. The consistency is thicker like professional shampoos. Which I greatly appreciated. This means it is not watered down. You know you are getting the real deal. I applied about a nickle size to my wet hair and it lathered up very well. This shampoo is basically everything your hair wants and nothing it doesn't so it claims. So, no harsh chemicals. I was surprised it was bubbly when I washed my hair. Usually sulfate free doesn't get suds. I loved that it suds up, makes me feel clean. I massaged the shampoo in for about 30 seconds and rinsed. Now, if ya didn't know, I have fashion colored hair, teal to be exact... the shampoo did not make my fashion haircolor run all over the shower. The washout of color was minimal to none. Which with my last shampoo I would have blue coloring on my tub! What a pleasant surprise this shampoo preserved my color!

Next, the L'Oreal Ever Pure Moisture Conditioner
After shampooing, I tried out the matching conditioner. The conditioner had the same beautiful smell. The bottle recommends to leave on for a few minutes. I left mine for about a minute cause I was concerned with my hair becoming too soft. Which is a common feeling for my hair. I prefer body and texture to my hair. So I left the L'Oreal Ever Pure Moisture Conditioner for one minute and rinsed. Again, no color washout. A plus in my book! After showering my hair felt good and soft, but not heavy or greasy!! A big hooray!!!

Finally the L'Oreal Ever Pure 10 in 1 Elixir
I was skeptical about this product, having been a fan of It's a 10 Miracle Leave-in for years. Well, after showering, I sprayed a few pumped on the shaft to ends of my hair and combed through. I waited an hour cause I have long hair, then blew my hair dry. My hair felt refreshed, beautiful, clean, and smooth. I was pleasantly surprised again by the light feeling of this product. I was worried my hair would be sticky or greasy. But it was no such thing! Really scored with this product! I really love how it has all you need in one product. It is good for the get up & go gals. Or if you're like me and don't want a whole bunch of junk in your fresh hair!

So in closing,  I would highly recommend these products. Being a hairstylist for over 10 years I have tried countless home hair care products! These all stuck out to me as good products. Products I could see myself purchasing in the future. All are affordable and avaliable in Target or Walmart. I highly recommend this L'Oreal line!

Thanks for stopping by & reading my rant!

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Longwearing Lip Color

Hi guys!! I am new to Influenster a great app for reviews on any and everything!! Doing such, I was sent a box filled with 2 Maybelline Super Stay 24 Longwearing Lip Colors!

The shades I got are Constant Toast  (lighter) & Keep Up The Flame. I first tested them on my hand to get an idea how they feel and the pigmentation. The swatches did not budge!!! Check out my IG to see the video @clubtraci.

They are easy to apply. Apply to clean lips the lip color, when dried, the balm to top it off.

I wore Constant Toast to work yesterday... that lipstick stayed all day long!!!! Did not budge! I applied around 12pm and when I got home at 10pm it was still there! I even ate wearing it too!! I did reapply the balm a few times to keep my lips moisturized & for shine. 
The only con to these lip colors is they are extremely difficult to remove. At the end of the day I use my usual holy grail Neutrogena makeup remover wipes... they did not take off the Maybelline Super Stay 24 Longwearing Lip Color! I then scrubbed them with a warm towel & facial scrub lol! I was desperate! Got it off haha! 

These Maybelline Super Stay Longwearing Lip Colors are definitely for the ones wanting a lip color that will stay PUT!!! Can't beat the pricing. They are easily available in your local drugstore.

Happy Shopping!!!
