What’s New in Beauty: Olaxer Cosmetics Beauty Products

We love being introduced to new beauty products, especially if we’re seeing beauty products and tools, unlike anything that’s already out there. We were recently introduced to Olaxer Cosmetics Beauty Products and their wonderful products. They offering many of your beauty category favorites – matte lipstick, bath bombs, magnifying and lighted makeup mirrors, mud masks, cleansing brushes, and our favorite, hair straightening tools. Because we’re blessed with a head full of very thick hair, we’re incredibly excited to try the Olaxer Cosmetics 3-in-1 Ceramic Hair Straightener/ Hot Brush/ Curling Iron with Ionic Technology; and because matte lips are oh-so-in right now, we’ve become fans of the Olaxer Cosmetics Lip Glaze Matte Liquid Lipsticks. We’ll be highlighting both those beauty products in this post.

Olaxer Cosmetics 3-in-1 Ceramic Hair Straightener/ Hot Brush/ Curling Iron

If you’re a woman with hair longer than two inches, chances are you have several haircare tools taking up space in your bathroom. Those tools could include a hairbrush, curling iron, and flat iron, and if you’re African American, possibly a hot comb. What if one beauty tool could eliminate those others, saving you time, space, and money? That’s exactly what the Olaxer Cosmetics 3-in-1 Ceramic Hair Straightener/ Hot Brush/ Curling Iron with Ionic Technology will do. This versatile beauty tool is a Flat Iron with ceramic plates that heat up quickly, distributing heat evenly across the iron, ensuring your hair is not damaged by hotspots; a Hot Brush that uses shine ionic technology which emits negative ions that counteract the positive ions present in dry hair; and a Curling Wand with three temperature settings (High 392°F / Medium 356°F / Low 320°F) to best fit your hair type. The best part, this Olaxer beauty product is available on www.amazon.com for only $24.99.

Olaxer Cosmetics Lip Glaze Matte Liquid Lipsticks

We all know a matte lip is at the top of the beauty trends list right now, and Olaxer is offering you six stunning matte lip colors for such a low cost. What makes these lipsticks different is they glide on like a lip gloss dries like a matte lipstick. It has the staying power of a lipstick, we’d call it a matte lip cream. It even comes with a lip gloss wand for nice, even full application and coverage. The texture of the Olaxer Cosmetics Lip Glaze Matte Liquid Lipstick is softer and more delicate. It boasts a long-lasting, non-stick formula which contains moisturizing ingredients for a comfortable, emollient and silky feel against your lips. How much does this amazing lippy set? Can you believe it’s only $19.99 on www.amazon.com? Talk about a steal!

What are your thoughts on these Olaxer Cosmetics beauty products? Are you excited to try these?
