Some recent pics

No gel, nothing extra just Darcy's Botanicals Curling Cream Gel


Darcy's Botanicals again

I got bored and decided to do a brown smokey eye, unfortunately the colors are never as vibrant on my camera


My go-to everyday look

Ooo! Look at those gorgeous eyes. I wish I had the patience to pull off a smokey eye, but I always get distracted or bored as I'm trying to teach myself to do it properly, ahaha...one of these days!

Aww, Thanks Jess! I never ever do a traditional smokey eye, I cannot for the life of me blend black eyeshadow. I've tried and tried. But browns work beautifully, they blend much easier, and are much more forgiving. :)

Wow your hair looks amazing! I've not tried the Darcy's stuff, but maybe I should!

Mrs. Blacksten said...

Thanks Michelle! The Darcy's products that I've used, I really like. The Curling Cream Gel is great, but I took the pic late at night and had nowhere to go. Normally I would've topped it with a gel for extra hold. It looked great, and it was soft, but I'm not sure it would've held up for a whole day. :)

What other products of theirs have your tried? I was thinking about ordering that and their gel and maybe a leave in condish.
My hair is longer than in my pict. -->
Bust still above my shoulders.
but it looks like we have similar hair types.

Hey Michelle,
I've actually used quite a few products from their line, there's a review on my blog of some of the more recent ones that I've used. A couple years ago I used some of their leave-ins, and I liked them. At the time they had several varieties, and they were all good. I've also used their Cleansing Conditioner and Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, both of which I love!
Darcy's products are great quality, and the owner is really nice. :)

Thanks! After I posted my last comment...I remember reading your review post! Duh...I'll blame it on Friday night and a long week. I think I'm going to place an order from her- always looking for my Holy Grail hair product for my curls!

S. said...

your curls look fantastic! how much of the curl cream gel did you use?

Mrs. Blacksten said...

Hi S-
I used about three quarter sizes to begin with, and then about another quarter sized amount when my hair was about 80% dry. HTH :)
