Michele's Makeup Blog

I love makeup!  And whether you love makeup or not, chances are you wear it at least sometimes.  Don't you want to make sure you're getting the best value for your $$$?  That's what this makeup blog is all about. 
I try products and services and give you an honest review.  From drug stores to department stores, I try different brands at different price points to give you the scoop. 

A Little About My Perspective...
- Quality is more important than quantity.
- Just because it costs more doesn't mean it's better.
- Multitasking products are a very good thing.
- Have fun...if a look doesn't work a little soap and water makes it all better.

I Wish I'd Thought of This!

Do you ever see an invention and think, "Why didn't I come up with that?"  That's what happened to me a couple of weeks ago when I came across some velcro rollers at Walgreens.  You've seen one velcro roller you've seen them all, right?  Nope.

I use velcro rollers regularly, because they're quick and easy and they give great volume.  I usually put two or three in my hair while I'm getting ready in the morning and zap them with the dryer for a few seconds.   By the time I'm ready to go I take them out and my hair looks pretty good.  Nothing could be simpler.  There's just one problem: I'm forever searching for clips or bobby pins to keep them on my head.  I know you're supposed to be able to use velcro rollers without pins or clips, but my hair is way too thick for that.

Enter Vidal Sassoon Sure Grip Rollers.  These rollers are special because the clip is ATTACHED TO THE ROLLER!  You can't lose it!  The clip is attached by a stretchy cord (like a ponytail elastic) to one end of the roller on a bar that spans the diameter of the roller.  The other end of the roller is still open, so you can still nest the smaller rollers inside.  

I love these rollers!  I only have one complaint.  There's only one configuration of rollers you can buy.  It includes mostly small rollers and only a couple of bigger rollers.  I wish you can could the pick sizes you want individually and that there were bigger sizes available.  Still, it's a great product and I wish I'd had the idea!

I found mine at Walgreens for about $10, but you can also find them on Amazon.
