SoCozy Hair Products for kids, how does it work on Afro-Textured Hair? "Natural Hair".

SoCozy is a hair care brand that is specifically targeted at kids hair needs. The products range from shampoos and conditioners to styling mousse and gels.

The brand has fun packaging that is different for each of the product lines, they include:

  • Cinch -The Basics
  • Boing-Curl
  • Boo-Lice Scaring
  • Splash-Swim
First of all, I love that the products are made with non-toxic ingredients No Parabens, No Sulfates, and they are free of Peanuts and Tree nuts. Children (and adults) that suffer with nut allergies have to be so careful and this brand really took care to think of them. The SoCozy Products DO NOT contain synthetic perfumes and dyes. Their motto is: "NO NASTIES"

I decided to try the SoCozy brand on my children (Youtube's LittleMindCatchers)who are African-American girls and they both have afro-textured hair. We tried the Boing-Curl product line and a detangler from the Cinch line to see how the products would work for us. 
I was very pleased with the scent of the products and so were the girls. The shampoo lathered well and rinsed out well. I then used the conditioner in the Boing line and under the water the hair felt very soft and silky however, when the hair began to air dry I realized that I may need a little more help to keep the hair manageable so, I sprayed the detangler and it worked like a dream. It kept their kinks and coils nice and loose, long enough for me to style the hair for both girls. 

I will tell any parents of afro-textured children that their hair will need essential oils and added moisture in-between washes. I use my Castor Oil, Olive Oil and other pomades on my children's scalp and hair when using the product because OUR hair needs more moisture than the products provide. However, as a parent, I am happy that SoCozy is a company that I can trust with my children's hair and I would definitely recommend it to parents of ALL races. 

Here is a video showing our first shampoo with the SoCozy products and initial thoughts.

MAKE UP FOR EVER "Artist Palette Vol.4" Limited Edition

MAKE UP FOR EVER has given us an extra reason to shop this Fall with the launch of the Limited Edition  "Artist Palette Vol.4".

There are 9 MATTE eye shadows that are super pigmented and highly blendable. The eye shadows included are:

(1st Row) #M-100 Black, #M-842 Wine, #M-240 Prussian Blue.

(2nd Row)#M-620 Grey-Brown, #M-802 Antique Pink, #M-536 Milk Tea.

(3rd Row) #M-126 Chalk, #M-546 Dark Purple Taupe, #M-530 Eggshell.




I see myself getting a lot of use out of the first and second rows this holiday season. The third row is a little light for my deep skin tone. I am a fan of the "Dark Purple Taupe" shade on the bottom row. I think it could make a very pretty neutral eye look for any skin tone.

The packaging of the Artist Palette Vol.4 is very cute, compact and durable.

Nanshy Masterful Collection | Makeup Brush Review



Searching for some fabulous yet affordable makeup brushes? I have just the set for you!

The Masterful Collection Brush Set from Nanshy is absolute perfection for the makeup beginner or the seasoned makeup connoisseur.

The Masterful Collection has 12 full size brushes. All soft, synthetic, antibacterial bristles. 100% vegan, cruelty free and approved by PETA.org.

The sleek and professional size and look of these brushes are really amazing. (This Collection is also available in white). The packaging is very nice, not a cheesy or cheap box at all.
Each brush handle is smooth and speckled with a little silver, which makes a fun design. The name "Nanshy" is imprinted on the ferrule of each brush as well.

These brushes are also extremely easy to clean!!! All of the pictures below were taken after, my first use and not a trace of foundation or eye shadow is left behind.


Shown in original packaging.


Top to Bottom: Powder Brush, Blush Brush and Stippling Brush.

Top to Bottom: Contouring Brush and Foundation Brush.

Top to Bottom: Bending Brush, Crease Brush.

Top to Bottom: Shader Brush and Pencil Brush.

Top to Bottom: Liner Brush and Angled Detailer.

Closed Lip Brush.

Opened lip brush.

I have done a full face makeup tutorial using the Nanshy Masterful Collection and I was blown away by how seamless my application looked. The brushes felt beyond soft as I applied my Foundation and Powder. The blending brush was perfect for my hooded eyes and reminds me very much of the Mac Cosmetics 217 blending brush. The crease brush stole the show with its precision. Overall, one of the best makeup applications I've had in a very long time.To purchase these lovely brushes in time for the holidays, please click this link: Nanshy Brushes
