Luseta Beauty Biotin & Collagen Shampoo + Conditioner Review

luseta beauty biotin collagen haircare review


For a long time, I have been on a hunt for a haircare product that contains biotin. Biotin is a vitamin B7 that promotes thick luscious hair and prevents hair thinning. I have straight, fine hair with some thick strands blending in. The fine strands tend to get very brittle as they get longer, so I always look for haircare products that promote hair strength and increase hair volume. While I may have found a good haircare line that promotes strong hair strands (see HERE), I have not found a haircare product that promotes hair growth and hair volume.


Enter the Luseta Biotin & Collagen Shampoo and Conditioner. I have never been so blown away by the effect of the product on my hair. I started using the shampoo and conditioner without much expectation, but after using them, I was amazed by how my hair looked.

The shampoo and the conditioner have a pleasant light floral smell, which I love. The packaging is large enough to last for several showers, and the price is very reasonable. I also like that the company sends a free sticker that you can stick to the packaging. I had a lot of fun doing it because it made the packaging so cute. It feels like I was scrapbooking ๐Ÿ˜€.

Biotin & Collagen Shampoo – The shampoo is so easy to lather, and only a drop of the product is good enough for every shower. The product itself has a purplish lilac color, and it cleanses the hair thoroughly. I did not notice any dryness of my hair after rinsing off the product, and I also felt like I could just use the shampoo alone and still not have a dry-hair feeling afterward.

Biotin & Collagen Conditioner – The conditioner is lightweight and with a light lilac tone. It is creamy but not whipped nor viscous. One drop is also good enough to cover short to medium-length hair. It will not weigh the hair down.

Contrary to some critics of the haircare line, I really like my experience with the products. My hair feels smooth, soft, detangled, and breezy clean after each use. I never noticed any product residue that left my hair feeling heavy or greasy. I also did not notice any dryness. While my experience may be different from othersโ€™ experience, since my hair is somewhat on the oily side, your experience with the product will be different as well. Therefore, I suggest that you give this product a try. It works for me, and it makes my hair feel full and look volumized.

Bracha Jewelry Review

Bracha Wearbracha jewelry


Even though golden jewelry pieces are not my thing, one jewelry brand sparked my love of such jewelry material. You read it right from the title of this review. It is the Bracha brand of trendy golden jewelries. What started as a random scrolling on the Nordstrom app, turned into a full-blown obsession with Bracha jewelry being purchased at 3 AM. Yup, I am awake at 3 AM because I am a self-confessed hardcore night owl, living among nocturnal animals :-). Anyway, my first impression of Bracha jewelry can only be described in one word โ€” impressive. For each piece’s price point and quality, I am impressed at how beautifully crafted each jewelry I received. It is clear that style and attention to detail are invested in every ring, bracelet, and necklace this brand makes.

As I have mentioned, most of Bracha’s jewelry is gold-toned. However, such gold tones differ in every piece of jewelry the brand makes. Some may look more bright gold, while some may look more vintage gold. Depending on the style, some Bracha jewelry may also look more polished than others. Speaking of style, I would say that most pieces tend to be trendy and minimalist, which can also be seen as classic and elegant. Some of Bracha’s pieces are water-resistant, some are gold-plated, while some are gold-filled. The few silver-toned jewelries they have are either stainless steel or sterling silver.




Bracha Stars and Wonder Stack Ring


Most rings from Bracha are adjustable, except for a few pieces. So, there is no need to know your ring size, which is great! The ring styles vary a lot, and Bracha keeps updating their inventory. You will most likely find yourself looking at not just one Bracha ring, but three or four, or even more :-).

Bracha Initial necklace review


The first Bracha piece that captured my attention is the Initial necklace. It is all over Insta, and there is a reason why. The necklace is simply stunning and truly well-made. The quality is excellent, and it is such a versatile piece. The next Bracha necklace that I adore so much is the Skinny Gold-Filled Monte Carlo, seen in this post, along with the butterfly Free Spirit necklace. The Monte Carlo necklace should be a staple in every woman’s jewelry collection because it is very versatile and simply classic, which means that the necklace can be worn as is, or have it layered with other favorite gold-tone necklaces. Other necklace styles I love from Bracha are the butterfly necklaces, such as the Bailey butterfly necklace (link to purchase the necklace is at the end of this post).

I am a big fan of bangle bracelets, and Bracha has some really cool and classic designs. The Holly bangle bracelet (seen in the photo below) gives a classic roman goddess vibe. When paired with the Roma Nail Cuff (second photo below), the whole look becomes a modern Roman Holiday affair :-).

Whether you are a fan of gold-toned jewelry or not, you will not be able to resist the beautiful jewelry pieces by Bracha. From the style of each piece down to the price and craftsmanship, I have no doubt that you will like this jewelry brand as much as I do.

Chanel Beauty Haul

Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Fusion in 840 Rouge Paradoxal


Hello. Here are some Chanel hauls I have accumulated since last Fall-Winter 2021. There are some new releases of Chanel beauty and makeup products this Spring-Summer 2022, and they are as fabulous as last seasonโ€™s releases. Unfortunately, I missed out on several new releases, especially the latest shades from the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipsticks and the Rouge Allure Ink Fusion because they were so in demand. I did get one of the newly-released nail polishes for this Spring-Summer 2022, which is reviewed below. Ultimately, I ended up picking a mix of classic and new shade releases of Chanel beauty products for this review.

Check out what I got.


Chanel Spring Summer 2022 Le Vernis Terra Rossa


Chanel Nail Polish Terra Rossa Swatch


Le Vernis in 917 Terra Rossa โ€“ Released for this Spring-Summer 2022, this nail polish is perfect for warming temps and chillinโ€™ by the seaside. This has the perfect shade of vintage rose with a clayish vibe. Any skintone can pull off this shade, especially for those with medium skintone like mine. You can see this shade in one of my Insta photos as well (clue: the one with blueberry Danish pastry ๐Ÿฅ ).


Rouge Allure Velvet La Comรจte Collection: The packaging is slightly different from the usual Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick due to its asymmetrical star print that is meant to symbolize โ€œgood luckโ€.

108 Terre Dโ€™Etoiles โ€“ A shimmery brownish nude velvety shade. This formula is quite more moisturizing than any other Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Shades I have tried.


118 Bois De Rose Astral โ€“ A bit toned down on the shimmer, this lipstick is on the rosy-pink side but still nude and muted enough for daily wear.


Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Fusion in 840 Rouge Paradoxal Swatch


Chanel La Comete 118 Bois De Rose Astral

Rouge Allure Ink Fusion in 840 Rouge Paradoxal โ€“ I saw RED-ORANGE flames when I first tried this liquid soft-matte lipstick. I thought the shade was a bit over-the-top for me at first, but once it sets on my lips, the shade becomes a bit muted and becomes wearable. But I would not wear this daily because the shade is meant for glam events.


Chanel Powder Blush in 02 Rose Bronze Review


Powder Blush in 02 Rose Bronze โ€“ If you are looking for an every day, muted bronzy rose blush, then you must try this soft powdery, velvety compact. I like how smooth this blush applies to my cheeks, and this always applies โ€œrightโ€, no matter how imprecise the application can get. I blend and layer this blush a couple of times in one setting, and my cheeks still do not look sunburned. The lasting power is impressive, and this works well when applied using the fingers.


Chanel Eyeshadow-Liner-Khol in Contour Marron


Eyeshadow-Liner-Khol in Contour Marron โ€“ I love this Chanel makeup product because it is an all-in-one eyeshadow pencil that you can use as an eyeliner, eyeshadow color, and eyelid contour. As an eyeliner, this needs to be consistently sharp, which may require some sharpening tools or skills on your part, but once you get the hang of it, this will provide for a long-lasting cat-eye flick. As an eyeshadow color and contour, you can apply this product directly on the lid (tip: apply in dots) and blend using an eyeshadow blending brush. You can also add more colors on the lid that needs some contouring, and you will be good to go. Voila! You will have a clean and easy eyeliner and eyeshadow application all in one stick.
