Tween Angel's hair, when wet.
I used the Uberliss RituOil on the right side of her hair, and my personal favorite straightening oil, Paul Mitchell's Super Skinny Serum on the right side.

The directions on the RituOil said to apply to damp hair, and blow dry, then touch up with a straightening iron. This is exactly what I did.
|Both sides, together|
As you can see, both sides are very nicely straightened, with minimum frizz, and Tween Angel looks beautiful. And much older than 11. But I digress. I will say, that the next day, the Super Skinny Serum side was much more straight than the RituOil side, but still looked nice and frizz free.

I tried these shadows with and without primer, and while I had to apply a bit more than usual to get the look I wanted, the shadows didn’t creep, crease or fade. Urban Decay and Lorac are both still my favorite prestige shadow brands, and Wet ‘n Wild is my favorite drug store shadow brand; but I will definitely be picking up another of these, in a different color, in the very near future.
If you would like to see my unboxing video, and watch me struggle in person with the Jesse's Girl palette clasp, here is the video:
And, here is the look I created with my Ipsy February bag. I didn't straighten my hair, but left it curly, so I have not included the Uberliss oil in this look. but I did use the rest of the items :)
So, tell me, lovely- what did YOU receive in your Ipsy bag this month? Anything that I didn’t receive that I simple MUST try? Leave a comment and let me know!
Until next time, my lovelies- stay Average!
