As I'm an oil girl through and through, the search is constantly on for a bigger and better fat. Coconut will be my all-time standby, olive oil runs a close second, and one that is vying for third place is argan oil. The Josie Maran tube has a permanent home in my purse, and I've recently fallen for the most publicized of them all--Moroccan Oil.
When my grocer ran out of pure argan oil, I began to get nervous. I didn't want to sell out to the highly marketed products toting argan oil, but had little choice. My hair needed it, and I had to put its needs before mine. The bottle that was acquired is an interesting one--I think it was originally meant to be sold outside of the country...which only made me like it more.
The scent is warming. It seems to have hints of vanilla and undertones of orange. The results--equally impressive. This oil is perfect for all hair types, as the formulation is not thick, nor is it super thin. It absorbs beautifully into my hair without leaving a residual grease slick. This is one of those products that has you pulling your hair to your nose all day, because the scent lingers on. Yesterday I went to the salon to have my ends trimmed, and even my stylist commented on the new health situation my hair was facing. Although my love for oils is truly for the kinds that are original and unadulterated, this may be the one that stays in the styling drawer for a good long time...or until I find its superior :)
I was tagged in November by Tali at The Gloss Goss, with a survey:
1. What is your beauty style? (Natural, trendy, etc.)
I tend to go for the natural look most times. I appreciate a dewy and fresh appeal, with the slightest hint of shimmer. Even when I think I've really outdone myself, I'll take a picture and realize that I am never as over-the-top as I think I am. So perhaps in my mind I'm really fierce, but on paper..not so much!
2. Where do you get your beauty inspiration from?
I like odd pairings. Pink and orange, blue and teal... when I see things like that, I think of anything from peacock feathers to sunsets. So, things that occur naturally in the world.
3. What beauty products do you have the most of?
Moisturizers and lipglosses. I need the full spectrum in moisturizers, but not so much in lipgloss. Although, I'm constantly convinced that I'm finding something new...thus, the collection continues to grow.
4. What's your favourite/holy grail colour for:
Eyes: Browns, golds, and greens...especially the offerings of Le Metier de Beaute. Spicy is a favorite.
Lips: Lipstick - L'Oreal's Aishwarya Beige / Lipgloss - Sheer peachy tones, like those by Castledew
Cheeks: Benefit's Coralista, Illamasqua cream blush in Rude, Maybelline Mineral Power in Original Rose
Nails: Lippmann Satin Doll--a slightly shimmery beige which is beautiful with one coat, and opaque in two.
5. Three favourite brands of the moment:
1. MAC - Warm & Cozy brought me back..at least for the meantime
2. Laneige - Everything in the line makes you feel so clean and fresh
3. Guerlain - The blendability of their shadows, and great packaging always gets me
I now tag: Pri*Sila, Javy, Cherries in Syrup, Dila, and any others who would like to do it! Leave a link in the comments if you do!
