Mielle Organics Honey and Ginger Styling Gel

As an aspiring YouTuber, I do a lot of videos using many products. I have been a fan of Mielle Organics for a couple of years but I have been doing a lot of videos using products that I currently have or have been gifted.

In doing this, my hair has been ravaged.  My hair had been very dry lately and the product was not being absorbed. I would do videos and apply conditioner and could still see the conditioner sitting in parts of my hair.  From that moment it was just downhill for any other product applied after that.

So today I washed my hair and used the Mielle Organics Leave In Conditioner, Mint Almond Oil and Avocado Hair Milk.  My styler of choice was the Honey and Ginger Styling Gel.

This gel hasn’t been on the market that long but people are really excited about it due to its ingredients.  This is the list of ingredients: Aqua (Water), Glycerin*, Honey*, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Acrylates Copolymer, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Orbignya Oleifera (Babassu) Seed Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Maltodextrin/VP Copolymer, Marshmallow Extract, Pectin, Parfum (Fragrance), Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzyl Alcohol.  Honey is the 3rd ingredient.

* CERTIFIED ORGANIC INGREDIENTS.

Here are the results of my hair once I was done styling:

This is my hair dry.  You can see the shrinkage is minimal:

The consistency is more like a lotion but I love that it doesn’t make your hair crunchy.

Your hair is still soft after it dries.  It’s good to know that you can feel good about what you are putting on your hair.  The gel is now available at Sally Beauty Supply but it’s hard to find because it’s flying off the shelves as quick as it’s restocked.  If you don’t see it there, you can purchase from their website:  https://mielleorganics.com/products/honey-ginger-styling-gel?variant=21857873733

Mielle Organics can be purchased at Target, Sally Beauty Supply, CVS and other retail locations.  You can find a retailer near you on their website by typing in your zip code: https://mielleorganics.com/apps/store-locator

Anastasia Beverly Hills gloss

Hey all.  I just did a video on these glosses but I thought I would provide you guys the pics that I took after using the glosses.

Am I the only person that is almost off of the matte lipstick train? It’s not like I’ve tried tons but the ones that I have tried have been drying.  I know that this is the nature of the beast (matte = dry) but still, my lips are tired.

I can’t seem to find a matte that doesn’t eventually dry my lips out and I’m assuming that I never will.  I can’t help but think “why am I paying a lot of money to dry my lips out beyond recognition?”

Any who, I went back into my happy drawer and found this set of mini glosses from the ABH Fall Collection that I bought a few months ago.  I always loved the feel and colors and was just wearing them sparingly.

I decided to give my lips some much needed TLC and switch back to glosses for a minute.  Why?, because it’s cold and I just want another layer covering my lips to combat the elements.  I live in Atlanta but it’s still cold in the mornings and after the sun goes down. I just feel like a gloss or creme lipstick is better for your lips in the cold because you aren’t drying them out twice: once from the lippie and second from the weather. Just my opinion.

For all of my Sephora Beauty Insiders and VIBs, the ABH glosses can be purchased at Sephora: http://www.sephora.com/lip-gloss-P404830?skuId=1791730&icid2=products%20grid:p404830http://www.sephora.com/lip-gloss-P404830?skuId=1791730&icid2=products%20grid:p404830

You can still purchase the kit on the ABH website: http://www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com/mini-lip-gloss-set—fall/ABH01-18302.html?cgid=makeup-lips#start=3&cgid=makeup-lips

So here are pictures of me wearing each gloss.  I had worn all except Amber and Carla. I love the creamy consistency.  They all went on smoothly and evenly except Amber, which was the lightest so I wasn’t surprised. Have you worn these? What are your thoughts, fav colors?

Birthday scents, Sephora mistakes and Scentbird

Hey all,

My birthday was on the 3rd so I wanted to share my new scents that I bought and scents bought for me.  I treated myself to some Scentbird fragrances.

By the way, if you choose to try out Scentbird, I have a link where you can try it for free: https://www.scentbird.com/r/d/patriciajackson6

Did Sephora redeem themselves?  You gotta watch to find out.  Check out my video showing how Sephora almost ruined my scent buying spree: https://youtu.be/F14s6hZ25ps

I’ve been duped . . . Part 2

You know by following me that I posted a video previously where I was duped on some super expensive fragrances: Flowerbomb and Spicebomb.  I had purchased these fragrances from Scent City Perfumery and when I got them, the codes inside the box had been removed.  The fragrances also didn’t smell the same as the originals which were acquired previously through Scentbird.  I told everyone in that video that I would do another video because I had also purchased 2 Juicy Couture fragrances that I was now unsure of their authenticity.

So we fast forward to now and I have bought the authentic scents from Luxury Scent Box (I’m a subscriber).  I bought Viva La Juicy and Viva La Juicy Noir and compared the scents.  Check out the video to see the results of what happened next:

Lash break: mascara or falsies????

I have been wearing falsies consistently since the beginning of the year. I decided to take a break for about a month but I’ve been missing my lashes (falsies) like crazy. I need all of my Lash-in-nistas to let me know how you got over the hump. Have you taken a break? If so for how long? Are you still wearing your falsies consistently? Do you like my look with falsies or au la naturale (with mascara)?

Here’s my new video on the mascaras I’m currently wearing: https://youtu.be/-_NQQKY2Lps

You can check out my previous videos to see me in lashes: https://youtu.be/ymqiDbUGG_g

BUYER BEWARE: How I got duped by a perfume company and how I got my money back

Well most of you know by now that I LOVE perfume.  Well, I fell for a company that claimed that they sold legitimate fragrances for up to 80% off.  I know, you’re thinking “you fell for that?”.  Yes, I did.  I got burned but I also got vindication.

Check out my video to see what happened:
