I review a lot of products and the ones that I like I love to pass on to my readers. But it’s rare that a product sample replaces a staple in my beauty arsenal. Here’s the exception to rule.
Enter Elujuda. I was sent this over a year ago when I was going through a naturally curly hair phase. And while I thought it was ok—I didn’t unlock the true genius of this product until recently when I used it to blow out my hair.
Oh hey! Hi shiny hair Hair blown out using just Elujuda.
There’s a formula for fine hair and one for coarse hair–I tried the latter. A few pumps is all that is needed and it makes my blow out that much smoother and shiner. My hair feels great after and remains frizz free.

I hate dull winter skin, so I like to fake a glow using just a few products:
From l. to r.:
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder- Dim- It’s like real time photoshop makeup. There are 6 different powders in this line..some for highlighting, but Dim is an all over powder to smooth out any imperfections. $45
Iman Second to None Foundation Stick- I use this in the darkest shade, Earth 7, lightly contour on forehead and the hollows of the cheekbones. No orange undertones make for a believable glow. $16
NARS Blush in Taos- A warm pink with just a hint of shimmer. My go to blush for summer and winter. $29
M.A.C. Cream Color Base in Hush- Applied along the cheekbones, it gives a gorgeous candle lit glow. $20
Looking for a low cost dupe of Urban Decay’s cult favorite Eyeshadow Primer Potion? Try e.l.f.’s Essential Eyelid Primer for only $1.00!! The two are nearly identical in functionality. Great for the budget beauty babe.
