It has been a while since I last made a Crown Brush purchase from HauteLook. I remember placing orders every time Crown Brush was on HauteLook (BTW Crown Brush is on HauteLook this weekend). What caught my attention this time around was the HauteLook Exclusive 10-Piece Syntho Brush Set for $5.00. I did manage to get a few other things too. LOL!
I was definitely was in need of a mixing tray.
I’ve owned a few of the angle liner/spoolie brushes in the past. These brushes have gone missing from my room for some strange reason. Hmmm
A few of my concealer brushes have gone missing as well. I guess that is what happens when you have daughters.
I am very pleased with this purchase. It looks like I’m going to have to make room for future Crown Brush purchases from HauteLook. ;)

I took advantage of the buy one get one free sale Walgreen’s had on Shea Moisture products.
This is what I purchased.
- Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Leave-In Conditioner
- Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Treatment Masque
- Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
- Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner
I stuck with the Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo and Restorative Conditioner. I didn’t feel the need to try a different shampoo and conditioner at this time.
I started using the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Leave-In Conditioner during the Winter. It’s been a great addition to my haircare routine.
I’ve had my eyes on the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Growth & Restore Treatment Masque for quite some time. I’m glad Walgreen’s had this in stock.

Glad to see I wasn’t the only one rocking a headwrap.
