Irresistible Me Hair Royal Remy Hair Extension Review

*Press Sample

I recently was contacted by Irresistible Me to see if I would like to review one of their products. I jumped on the chance to do something different on the blog and I have always wanted to try out hair extensions. My hair is thin and takes forever to grow so I was hoping these extensions would give me a fuller look in addition to length, and I was not disappointed.

If you want to see what my "normal" hair looks like you can hop over to my Instagram.

Anyway, let's take a look at how I was rocking these extensions over the weekend!

I LOVE THESE!!!! I wore them all weekend and felt so confident in my look while I was wearing them.  The color of the extensions is slightly lighter than my natural color, but lucky me, I had highlights that I was letting grow out so these blended PERFECTLY. I can't wait to try these out for the workday sometime soon!

Some information about the hair extensions that I received:

  • Type: Royal Remy
  • Color: Ash Blonde
  • Length: 14"
  • Weight: 200g
In the box I received numerous clip in extensions; 1 four clip waft, 2 three clip wafts, 4 two clip wafts, and 2 one clip wafts. One waft came packaged separately so that the user could test the color before opening up the whole package. I really liked this feature, because had a ordered a different shade that didn't match so well, the large bundle would still be able to be used again if I had to return them. 

Given my hair was so thin, I found I didn't even need to use all of the wafts. In the pictures and what I ended up wearing out all weekend, was 1 four clip, 1 three clip and 2 single clips; you really do get a lot of hair for your money. Since the extensions are made from 100% real human hair, you and wash and style them as you would your own hair! 

Here is some additional information about the Royal Remy line from Irresistible Me: "Royal Remy is our premium line of clip-in hair extensions. We use top of the line hair and a special treatment unique to Irresistible Me to add extra silkiness and durability and make these the best hair extensions you can find. The thickness of the hair is amazing – it’s the same from the top to the bottom of the weft which will provide a lot of body and bounce while wearing them. This line is very easy to blend with your own hair and can be very easily styled, cut, colored and curled. Ultimately, the Royal Remy hair will last longer and is the closest match you can find to completely unprocessed hair. If you’re looking for longevity and volume, the Royal Remy line is the best choice you could make. "

I would absolutely recommend these extensions to anyone and everyone looking for an easy way to switch up your hair for anything from a special event to daily wear. If extensions aren't your thing, Irresistible Me also has styling toolshair care products and accessories

KBShimmer Winter/Holiday 2015 - Partial Collection Review

*Press Sample

I'm back!!! At least for today anyway; and I'll be sharing with you 6 of the shades from the KBShimmer Winter/Holiday 2015 Collection, so let's jump in!

All pictures are shown with two coats of color and one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat.

Owl Miss You: A soft beige, neutral tan. This feathery polish is filled with golden metallic flakes and a bit of coppery metallic shimmer. 

How Corn-y: An Indian corn inspired polish with burgundy, gold, red and orange glitters in a creamy orange base. 

Fleece Navidad: A soft silvery light gray polish with holographic sparkle and blue micro flakes that shimmer in the sun. (Note: I live in Pittsburgh, there is no sun this time of year, like ever, so the holo stayed hidden in the picture)

Kind Of A Big Dill: Perfect for those that love a pickle on their Christmas tree! This deep, near forest, green is loaded with micro and small silver holographic glitters that shine in the light. 

Yule Worthy: A warm burgundy leaning, chocolate brown polish with micro flakes.

Chilly Pepper: A true Christmas red cream with full coverage in 2 coats.

All 6 of these shades had the usual perfect formula that I have come to love from KBShimmer.
