Planet Beauty California's Best-Loved Beauty Boutique

If you're in California you've probably heard of or stepped in to Planet Beauty, an upscale beauty retailer with over 30 stores in the state, or you can shop their online store at PB stocks like alllll of my favorite brands so when they offered me the opportunity to shop for a couple items at their store I couldn't pass it up. I selected the two products that were at the top of my beauty wishlist right now, Redken Diamond Oil and the pressed version of Too Faced Primed & Poreless powder.

Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder ($30)
Too Faced Primed & Poreless loose translucent powder is amazing, the silky soft texture sets makeup with out any powdery finish and blurs pores. Because the loose powder is some kind of flawless I wanted to get the pressed version to keep in my purse for touch ups on the go.

Too Faced Primed & Poreless pressed powder comes in a pretty pale pink snap case with mirror and powder puff. It's a light cream shade that when applied is translucent. Just like the loose this sets  makeup and nixes shine without any added coverage or being too matte. Makeup looks fresh, oil is controlled, and that added benefit of vanishing pores. It's a very natural looking sheer powder that gives a soft-focus invisible finish that never looks cakey. If you liked the loose version this one's just as nice.

REDKEN Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine ($43.95)
Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine is a concentrated leave-in hair oil. This hair oil for normal and fine hair, strengthens & reinforces for smoother, shinier hair while protecting from breakage. Its hybrid oil technology combines polymers and natural hair oils, including coriander oil, apricot oils, and sunflower oil. Silicone-free with natural hair oils that penetrate each level of the hair fiber to nourish strengthen and reinforce strands from the inside out Hair is 3X* stronger with 2X more shine** Seals, coats and smoothes the cuticle to boost shine and protect hair from damage due to friction from brushing, styling, etc. Features a unique dropper for precise, no-waste dosage.

Isn't the cut glass bottle just gorgeous? It looks like it belongs on a perfume does smell faintly of Patchouli :) After trying out numerous Argan and Morrocan oils and realizing they just aren't made for fine blonde hair this one sounded promising. It's for normal to fine hair, silicone free, and has a hybrid of natural oils.
The bottle has a dropper much like a skincare serum, this lets you use just the smallest amount which I prefer over the pump style that has a tendency to dispense too much oil unless you have long thick hair. I use two drops just on the ends of my hair. At that rate the 3.4 oz bottle will last forever.

Diamond oil is a girls best friend. It takes to my dry split ends and transforms them to silky and shiny, not oily or heavy. It also helps eliminate frizz when used as a pre-blowdry treatment. I've been battling some issues that have caused my hair to become very dry, I feel like this really is helping my hair get stronger and maintain better health with less breakage...or at least look better than it really is :)  If other popular oils have left your hair heavy and weighed down give diamond oil a whirl, it's light but effective. There's also an intense version for coarse hair in an even prettier black bottle.
