Kiss Tornado 360: Hair to Dry For!

So I recently had a chance to try Kiss’ new line of hair styling tools – which I was pretty darn excited about because if you’ve read the ‘Talon before then you know that I’m obsessed with the whole line of Kiss Nail Dress and their eyelashes! But because I loved their nail dresses and falsies products I had super high expectations for their hair styling tools, and luckily I wasn’t disappointed at all!

This is the Kiss Tornado 360 1875W Ceramic Tourmaline Ionic Blow Dryer. The blow dryer itself comes with both an air concentrator and a patent pending Tornado Air Booster. It also has three heat settings and three speed settings.

My hair typically takes about 45 minutes to blow dry because not only is it long (my hair ends at the lower end of the middle of my back), but it also retains a lot of water and moisture and doesn’t dry quickly. This means that blow drying my hair is like a feat of magnificent proportions – my arms will tend to get tired and I won’t thoroughly dry my hair. I usually get spaghetti arms halfway through and my hair style suffers because of it. Now it literally took me, with the Tornado Air Booster attachment, ten minutes to thoroughly dry my hair. Ten. Minutes.

If you’ve got long hair like me, I’m positive you understand how it is absolutely awesome having a blow dryer like this is – and even if you have shorter hair that typically dries fast I know as a girl shortening your styling time is invaluable. Plus, the spiraling air flow movements created by the rotating air booster not only unravels wet hair to speed up the drying process, but it evenly distributes heat and helps protect your hair from heat damage!

I’m seriously recommending this blow dryer to all ladies out there – avoid fatigue and get your hair dried and styled in less time, all while protection your strands from spot heat damage, what more could you ask for?

If the Kiss Tornado 360 1875W Ceramic Tourmaline Ionic Blow Dryer is any indication of the rest of their heated hair styling tools – then I’m excited to see what else Kiss has got in store for us!

My Kiss Nail Dress Obsession

kiss2

Probably one of my most favorite brands is Kiss and their sister brand Broadway nails. The other day I had an event to go to, however I had no time to do my nails – and believe me, they were not looking pretty! So on my way out I grabbed one of the nail dresses that I had on hand and applied it on my way downtown where the event was held. At the event my nails were complimented not once, but twice – and it’s always nice to receive compliments on your nails, especially when you didn’t have to put in lots of time or effort to make them look as good as they do, lol!

I’ve written about Kiss Nail Dress before – which you can check out here, but I just wanted to update you on the Nail Dress options and the one’s that I like to keep on hand. I’m a stereotypical New Yorker in that I tend to wear a lot of dark colors (who am I kidding, if I could I’d dress like Johnny Cash all the time – all in black), so playing with accessories and my nails gives me that much needed pop of color.

The nail dresses from left to right are Peignoir, Push-Up, Princess, and Shrug. I first tried Shrug back when I received my Love VoxBox almost a year ago. I loved it so much that I always make sure to have a set of them on hand. I remember at first being iffy about the style, and then I put them on and was surprised by how much I actually like them.  I picked up Princess and Peignoir at the drugstore, I haven’t tried them yet, but I’m always surprised with how good Kiss Nail Dress looks that I’m sure these will look super pretty.

I received Push-Up, the set I’m most excited about in my latest VoxBox- the Holiday VoxBox. It’s super pretty, and I love the green and hot pink feather design. It looks perfect for Spring and/or Summer! At the time I’m writing this I’m still rocking my Impress Nails, so I can’t show you what Push-Up looks like on – but you can see lots of reviews and pictures on the Kiss Nail Dress review page on Influenster here.

Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit Review

I’ve probably mentioned Kiss a zillion times on this blog before – but when you find a brand that provides quality for an amazing price, then you stick with it. So, I’ve always been a major fan of Kiss’ lashes and lash glue – but I never before tried their Ever Pro line, until my Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox.

 I really love these lashes, the glue is stable, latex-free, and long lasting. And the lashes are lush, glamorous, made of 100% human hair, and don’t irritate my eyes at all. Plus the pink applicator is really helpful, and makes lash application a breeze!

The Ever Pro lashes are really lush – definitely event worthy lashes. I wouldn’t wear them on a day to day basis – as that would look sort of overdone and garish. However, nights out, gatherings, parties and other events where looking glam is a priority are perfect opportunities to don these lashes.

When opening the package, you don’t want to use the pink applicator/tweezers to take the lashes off – what you want to do is bend back at the cut portion and peel off with your fingers. Then be sure to apply enough lash glue to the lashes – too little glue and your lashes won’t stay on long. Wait 10-15 seconds, or until the glue is tacky. Then, using a mirror and the pink applicator tweezers, apply the lashes as close to your lash line as possible. You want to apply them as close to your lash line as you can so that it doesn’t look obvious that you’re wearing falsies – you want your lashes to look as natural as possible.

 These are super easy to apply, and really give you the appearance of having super long, thick, glamorous Hollywood –style lashes! I’m definitely stocking it in my beauty collection, and am sooo glad that I had the chance to try them! For more details on the lashes and all the great products Kiss offers, check out their website here!
