Okay so my bf got me these as an EARLY x-mas present! Something I have always wanted and now that I have them I have to show you girls the awesome pigmentation! This is what they look like once you open them...
Aren't they cute! & wait for the swatches (with MAC PAINTERLY PAINT POD AS PRIMER)....dun dun dun
This is the 88 shimmer palette. The circles are a bit small, but the quality is great. They don't have a scent to them unlike the 120 palette
The 120 palette. Good huh? They look better in person thee flash doesn't give it justice. Still they look pigmented. The shadows are bigger then the 88 & they have a strong smell of baby powder. I don't care because they do the job =] & easy to work with. The top quads do not come like that they come stacked so, it comes on top of the square ones I just fixed it like that for the picture.
They are available at Ross & Walgreen's for a good deal GO CHECK THEM OUT BEFORE THEY RUN OUT!!
Okay, heres a quick video I found on Youtube of the 2 brothers! Don't they cut amazing! They took my breath away! Riccardo cut mine & the girls in my class + another class in less than 2 hours! He cuts fast & YOU HAVE TO BE STANDING UP NO SITTING!
(RICCARDO IS THE ONE WITH BLACK HAIR & HIS BROTHER IS THE BLONDE)
Okay, I got these two hair products when I attended the hair cutting class by Altieri brothers who are famous Hair cutters who own countless shops & have their own line of hair products & NOMINATED #1 FOR AWARDS. So I was dying to try their products luckily they gave us 3 BAGS OF FREE HAIR PRODUCTS! I was on top of the world!!! But i'm going to rave about these first.
( I am writing this exactly how it is in the back of the bottle so I am quoating without the "")
*Cleans with lipids & amino acids
*guaranteed not to fade color
*Absolutely NO sulfates
*Moisturizes & repairs as it cleans
*Infuses essential nutrients into hair

*Infuses protein into hair follicle
*Guarenteed not to fade color
*Repairs & strengthens dry damaged hair
*Rinses clean with no residue
*Detangles and eliminates frizz
Now, i started using this when Riccardo Altieri cut my hair which was about 2 1/2 months ago. I started using it even tho my hair is not dyed and I have to say I Love it! My hair was soo damaged and this shampoo & conditioner has helped me out a lot. My hair is thicker and healthier(I don't flat iron my hair or blow dry it anymore/ it's weird when I do) and the shine is amazing I get complements from everyone. The shampoo smells like a Popsicle & the conditioner smells like coconut. I remember riccardo saying they were made of coconut or something like that. & the consistency of the shampoo is AMAZINGLY THICK. Like I can put it on my hand and flip my hand over and it won't fall off. The conditioner is a little more runny. I have been using this shampoo since October 12 literally EVERYDAY! I let it sit on my wet hair for about 3-5 min before rinsing it off ( because no matter how much I try to wash my hair every other day I cant') and I am about half way with these two bottles. I only need about a dime size, but then again I do have short hair! So it has lasted me quite a while. My hair has grown at least 2 to 3 inches since I started using them. I recommend & love them. I will buy more after I'm done with these. You can check out their website for more info BUT I don't think you can purchase off the site...you can try & contact them. I think the nearest shop is in Newport Beach Or somewhere in the OC. I don't know the price on the products because they were given to me for free.. HE DID HOWEVER TELL ME THAT I GOT $320 WORTH OF PRODUCTS FOR FREE.! & I am not getting paid to do this ( I wish ha!) it's my honest opinion because I really like what this is doing to my hair! I'll show You a picture of what else I got in my gift bags. Maybe I'll do a review on the rest hmmm I don't know I have to try out everything first!
This is a natural look I did on myself using my PROFUSION keepsake palette that my boyfriend gave me as a present. He got it at ROSS for only $4.99 & let me tell you I LOVE IT!! It comes with
2 Lip glosses
2 Duo shadow applicators
1 Blush brush
* but I used my brushes not the ones that came with the palette. It's a nice little palette PERFECT FOR GIFTS! You can put a picture in the front like an album. The colors are very well pigmented and better with primer! The blushes are pigmented and easy to blend as you can see on my face. I have yet to try the Lip glosses i'll swatch them in a picture below, but they smell good like bubblegum mmm =D. The brushes...no one uses sponge tip! you can use your own brushes. Would I recommend it?? YES! TOTALLY! GO FOR IT! Specially for starters who don't want to spend a whole lot on a palette!
ROSS has an amazing variety & did I mention they are awesome gifts?? Ladies tell your Boyfriends/parents/siblings/grandparents/neighbors/babydaddies LOL you get my point!
I hope you liked this reviews because I SURE DID!!
