Kiss Insta Wave Automatic Curler Review*

Happy Friday!! I have had a crazy day and still have stuff to do. I finally have my computer back but the software for my web cam was not on here!! So I had to go get my boyfriend's iPad and then it was time to pick up my son from school and I had to wait until someone was home to occupy the little guy lol. Also trying to get clothes folded, put away and laundry done lol!! So this post is going to be a review on the new Kiss Insta Wave Automatic Curler. *This was provided for review by BrandBacker and my opinion is based on using this product. Grab a snack because this is going to be picture heavy and maybe a little long.

Here is the product still in the packaging. According to the Kiss site, It’s quick and easy to get salon-quality curls with the revolutionary new InstaWave by KISS. Just push the button to style any type of hair effortlessly.

In order to use this product, I had to straighten my hair. Its a great time during the year and I wanted to change things up a bit. Here is my hair before getting it trimmed.

It has gotten so long since February of this year!

At first I was thinking this may not work with my thick hair that has a mind of its own but it is made to work with all hair types. This is supposed to help make styling your hair easier. It comes with a 1" barrel and automatic curl dial. 

The Insta Wave Automatic Curler

1" Barrel and Curl Dialer

When I started to use this, I didn't realize you can curl your hair clockwise and counterclockwise. I was just pushing the button lol. You can create curls to go in either direction. On the curl dialer is where it would catch your hair wrap around the barrel to create curls. I'll explain it a bit later.

The Button to turn the dialer.

The Insta Wave comes with two settings, low and high. You can use the low setting for loose, wavy curls. The high setting is for tight curls. It goes up to 420 degrees. I used the low setting for big, loose curls. This seemed like it would be so easy but it wasn't at first. It took me a little while to get the hang of it. I had to figure how to place my hair on the barrel so it curls in the direction that I want. I also had to get my hair to catch around the curl dialer lol. Once I got the hang of it, it became easy to use. Here are the steps to using this hair product.So here is my hair before curling and after getting my ends trimmed.

First you would section off hair to curl. I found it easy to use small sections of hair. You would place the small section near the curler so the dialer can catch your hair.

Next you would push the button in the direction you want the curl to go. You would continue to push until all the hair is wrapped around the barrel. I left my hair for 6-7 seconds. Then pull the barrel down to release your hair. 

And that is it! I loved the results I got after using the curler. It was so easy once I got the hang of it. Here is a preview picture I posted on my Instagram.

This product retails for 59.99 and you can find more information and where to purchase HERE!!

I think this is great product for those on the go and don't have the time curl their hair. This would also be great for beginners who are learning how to curl hair and those who have trouble with using a curling iron. Here is a video I did demonstrating how to it.

So that is it for my review on the new Kiss Insta Wave. Have you tried this product or something similar? What were your thoughts? Would you purchase this product? Comment below and let me know. Enjoy the weekend and see everyone Sunday!!

Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.

It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
