Kim Kardashian Selfie Challenge: Owned

posted by Jessica Carroll September 22, 2016

Do you have what it takes to be a selfie queen??  The selfie queen herself is in the news yet again.  Who is she you ask?  Well the one and only Kim Kardashian West of course!  Her sis, Kendall Jenner has made it known that Kim had one of the most boring and uneventful trips to Mexico of al time.  All she pretty much accomplished was taking 6,000 selfies over her 4-day Mexico retreat.  Whoa, now that is a lot of selfies.  So I say, “Girl, Please!’ This week’s addition of Girl, Please I attempt to tackle this 6,000 selfie challenge along with a checklist of all the other things Kim did while on vacation.  The other items Kim managed to include wearing 9 bikinis, drinking 10 watermelon smoothies, playing the same 19 songs over and over, while spending zero hours in the sun.  I’m taking Kim’s Mexican Vacation breakdown to show you how I conquer this challenge in less than 2 hours.

Now I’m not big on taking selfies, and Kim defends her ridiculous hobby by saying that she loves capturing her memories and posting them on social media. For her its fun, so I’m going to get into the Kim Kardashian mindset and try and take as many selfies as I can!

So I started by clearing my phone, you need to have all the storage you can get to fit all these selfies.  Next, start your timer and put that thumb to work!  If you break down the math, I need to take 50 selfies a minute to hit 6,000 selfies in 2 hours. Do you think I have what it takes to do this challenge?  Well, find out in my latest video!  Don’t forget to subscribe because I have some fun videos coming up in the next few weeks!!

Kim Kardashian Tan Contour For only $12

posted by Jessica Carroll September 16, 2016

Celebrities have long used the contouring.  The Kardashians, Chrissy Teigen, and most Hollywood starlets are using this technique not only on their face, but on their bodies.  Contouring can completely change the shape of your face by carving out the best features and accentuating them.  But now, the Kardashians have taken it even one step further and actually spray tan on their contour. Each one of these sessions cost over $100!

There are hundreds of YouTube videos on contouring but I have yet to come across my DIY contouring idea. It’s basically where you get the same results (sky high cheek bones and toned abs) but you only pay $12! How?

Well you will have to watch my video to find out the secret. I’ll show you how I did and give you step by step instructions so you can try it too!  Have fun!

Blake Lively Mayonnaise Hair Treatment Review! – Girl, Please

posted by Jessica Carroll September 14, 2016

Condiments are not only for your burgers and hot dogs anymore!  In my first episode of “Girl, Please” I reveal Blake Lively’s secret to get her gorgeous, goddess-like locks.  “Girl, Please” will uncover and test out crazy celebrity beauty secrets that make you say that very phrase. I put them to the test to find out if they actually do the trick!

So what is Blake Lively’s beauty hair secret?  Drum roll please… MAYONNAISE!  Yes, Blake Lively puts that (disgusting!) substance in her hair.

I personally have a not-so-loving relationship with mayo.  I don’t like! It smells and really grosses me out. But I will do whatever it takes to put these crazy beauty hacks to the test, so here we go!

Why is mayonnaise used as a hair treatment? Mayo is made with an oil base and contains some hair healthy ingredients like lemon juice, vinegar, and soybean oil that contains fatty acids and vitamins that can boost shine and act to seal in moisture.  The vinegar in mayo helps restore PH levels and the proteins found in mayo stops breakage.  So mayo is the perfect hair beauty formula, right?

Step one, apply mayonnaise to clean, damp hair.  Start at the roots and work in the mayo to the tips just as you would with conditioner.  Put on a shower cap and let sit for 20 minutes.  Next, rinse with a non-drying shampoo to remove mayo from your hair.  Finally brush and blow-dry to see the final results!  After my blow dry I’ll fill you in on whether it’s a “NO way, girl” or “you GO, girl”!  Watch my video to see my reaction as I douse my hair with Mayonnaise and especially, if you want to see me in my cute shower cap!

Did Kylie Jenner Steal KYSHADOW from ShaaanXO?

posted by Jessica Carroll September 9, 2016

I’m so excited for this week’s product review!  In my newest video I’m comparing Kylie Jenner’s eyeshadow palette, KYSHADOW, to Shaaanxo’s eyeshadow palette.  There’s been a ton of attention regarding the similarity of the two bronze pallets and many are accusing Kylie Cosmetics of copying the same bronze color scheme of beauty blogger, Shannon Harris’s pallet. My initial thoughts are that the colors and the packaging are definitely super similar.  But let me tell, the price of each couldn’t be further apart!  Can you guess which one is more expensive?

So in my video, I’ll be testing both palettes to compare the colors, quality and longevity.  I’ll be applying both in the morning and wear them both all day to let you know which one really lasts the longest. I’ll break down how the pigment goes on and give you an inside look on similar or different these two palettes really are!  Enjoy the video! Also, let me know which palette you liked best!

If you would like to purchase either palette click the names below!

KYSHADOW – The Bronze Palette

Shaaanxo – BH Cosmetics
