Book Review: Lauren Conrad Beauty

This is the first beauty book I read. (I've read a couple of books on natural hair but nothing on makeup and stuff.)

The book started out entertaining enough and she did have a couple of good tips about hair care and nails... but honestly I felt it was a bit redundant.

Lauren Conrad is reality show star turned beauty mogul. She has her successful clothing line at Kohl's and a beauty advice column in PeopleStyleWatch magazine. So I guess taking beauty advice from her a little credible.

The book goes over everything beauty from hairstyles, to hair care, different makeup looks, nail care and much more. It is also littered with personal antidotes that are pretty entertaining too. My only qualm with the book is that it doesn't give you any original tips that you didn't know from common sense or a YouTube video.

it probably would suit a very young girl that is just putting her foot into the world of beauty but for a makeup junkie like me, it wasn't TOO useful.

Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby

 A nice red polish is almost a staple in every woman's wardrobe. And with sinful colors, you can have this rich deep brick color for like 2 or 3 bucks. You can't go wrong.

Hair Growth Journey (one year)

 Since then I think I grew a solid inch... maybe two.
 I think the only thing I will do differently is get trims more frequently and get a Tangle teezer to help me detangle my hair. I think that is where I lose a bulk of my length.

Essie Belugaria

 I know the liquid sand and other textured polish craze is FINALLY starting to die down but I couldn't resist when I saw Essie come out with these. This color is called Belugaria and it has got to be the mos fierce thing in my collection. Unlike the OPI liquid sand it doesn't really dry to a mate finish with sparkles, it's more like sequins.i is very opaque so you can't really layer it over other colors.

Unfortunately, it does chip a lot.

L'Oreal Safari Chic (520)

 As usual, my cuticles are looking less than par but I just have to say how much I LOVE these L'Oreal polish. They are relatively new (like less than 2 years). I have three of them and each one offers a gel like lasting power and shine. Love

It beats out Revlon as my favorite drugstore polish.
