What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag (feat. ColourPop, NARS, IT Cosmetics) | Video

What's In My Travel Makeup Bag? OliviaMakeupChannel

Since I was in Las Vegas earlier this month, I thought it would be appropriate to show you what I packed in my travel makeup bag! I think these videos are fun because you get to see what people REALLY use on a daily basis, almost like an honest favorites video. As I was preparing to post this blog, I realized that I’ve posted 3 other “What’s In My Makeup Bag?” videos on my YouTube Channel over the past couple years. So crazy to look back and see how I’ve changed- if you want to see, click the links below!

Definitely was shocked by the 2011 difference- I think it’s cool to see how I’ve changed in appearance and in demeanor from a teenager to young adult. I look and act completely different! Anyways, onto my current travel makeup bag, complete with a list of products below.

I store my makeup in the Zuca Large Utility Pouch– I love this bag because it’s big and has a clear portion so I can see what I’ve packed! I need 100 more of these…see how I packed it in my 2014 Travel Makeup Bag blog post! I also have packed 2 Z Palettes to carry my eyeshadows and contours- I love these palettes so much, I definitely need the orange one and maybe a couple small ones for odds and ends- but I only have big ones so far.

Because there are so many products inside, I’m just going to provide a list so you can check them out- for my full thoughts on them I’ve linked to any blog posts I have, or refer to the above video!

FOREO ISSA Electric Toothbrush Review

Foreo ISSA Electric Toothbrush Review

 

Earlier in the month I reviewed the FOREO Luna Facial Cleansing Brush and as you know, I loved it. I totally wish I could say the same for this product. But, unfortunately that’s not how the cookie crumbles!

The FOREO ISSA is a revolutionary electric toothbrush that features the same electronic vibrations & silicone bristles that the FOREO LUNA has. There is no other toothbrush like this, which is what drew me to it- most electric toothbrushes are similar to regular toothbrushes- none of them feature only silicone bristles. I like the idea of silicone because it’s nonporous and more hypoallergenic, but because the bristles are so much larger than traditional bristles, I feel like they can’t clean my teeth as well.

After trying the FOREO ISSA, my thoughts were correct- although I thought my teeth felt clean, they didn’t feel *as* clean as with a traditional toothbrush- there was still plenty of room for plaque in the hard to reach places around my teeth and gums. Another thing is that I felt like the toothbrush was huge! I have a small mouth, so I found the toothbrush to be massive in relation to my teeth, making it a bit cumbersome to use. The only positive thing I liked about this brush was that I felt that it foamed my toothpaste more, which is just more of a personal preference I suppose.

I wish I liked the ISSA more, but at $199 for teeth that don’t feel 100% clean, I will personally pass! What do you guys think, would you try this toothbrush? Share your favorite electric toothbrush in the comments! I kind of want to switch to an electric one…

The Best Hair Products & Tools at Cosmoprof North America 2015

The Wet Brush Hair at Cosmoprof North America 2015 in Las Vegas
The Wet Brush at Cosmoprof- need that gold one!

Slowly but surely I’ve been weaving though all of my Cosmoprof North America 2015 photos, products, and business cards to show you all what’s up and coming in the beauty industry. Last week I showed you fragrance, and today I’m sharing hair! I’m not the biggest hair guru, I only started dying it maybe 2 years ago, never blow dry, and kind of suck at styling, but I was able to find some fun things that even I could use!

The Wet Brush New Travel Hair Brush at Cosmoprof North America 2015 in Las Vegas
The Wet Brush New Travel “Pop Fold” brush

First off, one of my favorite brushes that I’ve ever tried (although I haven’t used one in a long time), The Wet Brush, unveiled their new Pop Fold full size travel brush. This looks amazing- gotta try it (along with their gold brush pictured at the top…because it’s aesthetically pleasing). It’s so hard to travel with hair brushes, and travel brushes usually never work the same. But, The Wet Brush Pop Fold is the same brush you love, just more compact for traveling!

Qwik-Clean Brush Self Cleaning Hygenic Hair Brush at Cosmoprof North America 2015 in Las Vegas
Qwik-Clean Self Cleaning Hair Brush

Another brush I was beyond impressed with was the Qwik-Clean Brush by Be In Beauty. This brush has retractable bristles which allow the hair build up to be easily removed. It’s such a genius idea- why didn’t I think of that?! Really want to try this one as well…I hate the look of my dirty hair brushes with my dark hair strewn throughout- and it’s impossible to remove all of the hair myself! They also have an attachment for hair dryers that has a heated portion to straighten hair- genius!

The Tangle Angel Detangling Hair Brush at Cosmoprof North America 2015 in Las Vegas

Detangling brushes are definitely a must- and another innovative product is The Tangle Angel. The brush features a stylish but functional shape, with dual-length bristles meant to detangle all strands of hair. They come in 2 sizes and also have one for pets!

Lastly in the detangling brush train we have The Knot Dr., which has a sleek line of detangling brushes and stylers. I like the look of their brushes, I wouldn’t mind displaying them in my bathroom! A great feature they have is a travel case for them: bye bye bent bristles in your suitcase or travel bag!

KareCo Hair Brushes at Cosmoprof North America 2015 in Las Vegas
KareCo Brushes

These affordable but professional quality hairbrushes by KareCo are available at Wal-Mart. I don’t blow dry my hair but I was impressed by their dome-top round brushes- seems like they’d make blow outs easier for both the professional and for the average girl.

SARAHPOTEMPA Beach Waver by Sarah Potempa Hair Tools at Cosmoprof North America 2015 in Las Vegas
SARAHPOTEMPA BeachWaver, Wrap Up / Half Up

Celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa revolutionized the hair tool world when she introduced the BeachWaver Pro, an automatic rotating curling iron. She recently introduced the BeachWaver S1, ideal for the at home user who may not need such a lengthy barrel.  I think her BeachWavers would work a lot better on my short hair than another rotating iron with a huge barrel that I tried earlier this year. I am also excited about an upcoming flat iron she’s launching with attachments to aid in flat iron curling (pictured above at the bottom left)! The Wrap Up & Half Up make updos and buns super easy- unfortunately my hair is way too short for these but if you have longer, less layered hair like mine, your styling time will be cut in half if you use one of these!

Rowenta Beauty Hair Styling Flat and Curling Irons at Cosmoprof North America 2015 in Las Vegas
Rowenta Beauty Stylers

Rowenta Beauty has a line of great blow dryers and styling irons. The hair dryers look super sleek and they have a styling iron that can both flat iron and have rounded sides in order to curl! They demonstrated the Versa Style Styling Iron on me and I got gorgeous loose curls- I even practiced on myself and was finally able to master curling with an iron with theirs! I think that says something!

Also, no photo, but check out Zenagen if you have problems with thinning hair. They have 2 formulations: Revolve, for those with hair loss, and Evolve, for those with normal hair that needs a boost. I was blessed with tons of hair, so I don’t have these issues- but I know tons of men and women do, so it may be worth looking into!

Lots of great hair options here- any that you’re interested in? I know that I’m adding a few of these brands to my must-try list! Stay tuned for a few more Cosmoprof posts…we have so much more to cover!

Dating In LA: My Worst Tinder Dates Ever! | Video

If you all saw and loved  my first Tinder video, reading my creepy tinder messages, then you’re in for a treat today! The last two new guys I met up with in person on Tinder were just not cool. Lines were crossed! But, in order to find what happened…you’ll have to watch the video. I can’t give all of my good stories away!

Anyways, I hope to do more dating videos soon, maybe not just on Tinder. I just need some inspiration- so leave me a comment with topics you’d like me to cover!

Also, how do you like my awesome Tinder shirt? Thanks so much to Tinder for sending me that- it was actually my first package at my new apartment! #blessed
