Liese products

Tried out two of the 3 Liese products I received courtesy of Yesstyle. One for an airy style and the other for permed styles. Both are used on dry hair as “fixes!”

Liese products

Liese Airy Style Blow-Dry Water

Pros
Gives an airy volume without greasy texture
Easy to use
Dries quickly with hairdryer

Cons
Does add a slight hairspray texture

I really liked the Airy Style Blow-Dry Water spray. It does exactly what it says. The texture it leaves behind isn’t too bad. It’s similar to a hair spray texture but with more give. I would recommend this for anyone with thin flat hair like mine

Liese Wave Style Defining Foam

Pros
Easy to apply
Fast drying
Weightless texture

Cons
Best for permed hair

The perm I got in the summer is about 99% washed out however I found this product to be pretty useful in adding waves. I applied a bit of the Wave Style Defining foam to my un-styled but dry hair. I then put it up in a ponytail bun (where you create a sort of bun from only pulling your hair halfway through the tie) and I took it out about an hour later when I got to work and had these great waves that lasted all day! Usually when I do this the waves fall out throughout the day but this product added a little extra hold to them.

Shu Uemura x Takashi Murakami

I recently tried out this eyeshadow palette from Yesstyle. It’s a part of Shu Uemura’s 2013 holiday collection called 6♡ Princess. A collaboration with Takashi Murakami. This is the Enchanted Black Parallel palette.

There are 7 iridescent and pearly eye shadows with 1 blush color. The colors are rich and vibrant. I’ve been using the gold, silver, black, and pearl pink heavily since receiving the palette. The plum blush is strongly pigmented and a little goes a long way.

Shu Uemura 6♡ Princess Enchanted Black Parallel Palette

Pros
Rich, highly pigmented colors
Long lasting
Good variety of shades
Gold and silver together in 1 palette

Cons
Glitter fallout especially with pearl pink shade (using NARS primer)
Works best with included compact brushes (and not well with other brushes)

Final thoughts: This is a good palette for adding a mix of colors into any collection especially mine which is mostly made of of neutrals. I have 2 of Shu Uemura’s previous holiday palettes. I personally prefer the texture and variety in those previous palettes but these offer more color choices in the eye shadow. The top 3 shades are perfect for the holidays. I love gold shadow this time of year and silver with black are perfect for New Year’s. I also liked that a single palette offered both silver and gold. These two shades are usually found in separate eye shadow palettes when given the choice. Also a good palette for celebrating Mardi Gras ;)
