MockingJay Part 2 - Flashback to The Hunger Games Nail Polishes

The last movie in The Hunger Games franchise hits theaters this week. MockingJay Part 2 is here! It's hard to believe its been several years since the first movie and since we first published the China Glaze Capitol Colours nail polish collection.

If I recall, we got first dibs on the polish in the store, and I literally broke two nails putting the polish on the counter to pay. That's why some of our swatches are on very short nails. Here's a flashback to some of our most used colors:

Hook and Line (full reviews highlighted) topped with Luxe and Lush.

Downy Wrinkle Releaser - A Must Have

Are you traveling this holiday season? Then, you won't want to leave without packing a travel size bottle of Downy Wrinkle Releaser.

We have been using this product for years. You can tell by the evolution of the packaging, all of which we have owned. (A little proof that we are loyal users of this product.)

Downy Wrinkle Releaser, Travel Size.

The travel size bottles above  are 3 oz. The most current packaging is on the right. This size currently meets TSA standards for carry-on baggage as long as it's in a clear Ziplock bag and put through security per their instructions. You can find it in the travel item section of Target, or get a large bottle in the laundry aisle.

Downy Wrinkle Releaser

Why We Love It: This product gets the fold marks out of clothes that were tightly packed in a suitcase. It refreshes your clothes, and you don't have to iron. The large bottles work great at home too!

To Use:  Hold bottle a few inches from your garment, and spray. Tug lightly on your clothing to smooth. That's it! The video below made us smile, and illustrates proper use.

Notes: We have tried Downy Wrinkle Releaser on every type of fabric we own: Dry clean only, silks, cotton, denim, and more. We have never had an issue. If you are unsure, test it in an inconspicuous place. The spray has a pleasant, unisex, fresh laundered scent that is not overpowering.

Cons: Downy Wrinkle Releaser won't give you the perfect, crisp look of ironing. It does, however, make your clothes passable and virtually wrinkle-free where you use it.

The first commercial for Downy Wrinkle Releaser (waayyyy back) originally showed a teenage boys spraying it on dirty clothes. We thought it wasn't something we would ever try, until a friend who hates ironing recommended it. We've been using it ever since. People always borrow it when we travel, so get your own bottle (especially if you have teenage boys.) LOL.

This product definitely gets a Glambo Kiss of Approval!

Wen Hair Care Lawsuit Filed

Hello Beauties!

Back in 2011, we tested Wen Hair Care, and subsequently wrote our most scathing review of a product ever. We didn't have the issues that are listed in the lawsuit below. However, we did discontinue use. Our Sassy Glambo Girl had the funniest, most honest phrase to describe her experience.

To see our reviews, click Glambo's Review of Wen Hair Care - Part I and Glambo's Review of Wen Hair Care - Part II. You can also find the reviews in our Glambo Dis section, which is how we 'keep it real' around here.
They say, "Friends don't let friends use shampoo."
We said, "Friends don't let friends use (order) Wen."

The article detailing the lawsuit is listed here.
