Beauty Battle - "Pass the Powder"

We're back for the second installment of HLNC's Beauty Battles.  The purpose of these videos is for each of us to try out the same product, then keep our opinions to ourselves until we can share our thoughts with each other while the camera is rolling. 

Today's Beauty Battle product is the ULTA Ultimate Styling Volume & Texture Hair Powder.  So are you ready to hear what we think??

We plan for this to be a recurring feature here on HLNC, so please send in your suggestions.  We're willing to give just about anything a try.  Let us know what you would like to see!!

Thanks for watching!


  1. I'd love to see you guys try OCC lip tars. I've seen them all over youtube lately and I just ordered one today. I don't know if you have them but they're like SUPER pigmented liquid lipsticks that use like the tiniest drop of product. They're really interesting. I just ordered one in Grandma and my mom ordered Melange.
    I don't know if it would work for this video series but I thought I'd pass this product on to you guys and see if you'd heard of it. I've never seen anything like it. Search it on youtube and watch someone swatch one, it's INSANE!

  2. @ Hannah - This is a great suggestion. We have seen these and maybe need to try them. We can't wait to hear what you and your mom think about them. :-)

    @ Radiant Make Up - Thank you so much! That is so sweet!

  3. It was good to know you both disliked the product. Rubbish to have to use dry shampoo the day after the product. They obviously need to rethink this one. Xxxx

  4. I giggle when I watch your videos :) I have only tried a dry "spray" shampooo in the past, and I am not a huge fan. Hmmm...I will try to think of a battle product to recommend ;-)

  5. You girls are so funny. I have never used any type of product like this then again I rarely apply any other then shampoo and conditioner. I just hate the thought of how my hair would look.

  6. @ Fashionistable - We agree!!

    @ Maribeth - Oh yes...if you think of something please let us know!

    @ Jackie - :-) It stinks to apply some kind of product to your clean hair and feel like you need to wash it immediately!

    @ Jazzy E - Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Ladies! What a great post :) Super informative and I can't understand why the powder would turn into a sticky/oily texture, especially if you are already working with dirty hair that may already be oily. Thanks to you two, I will not be purchasing this product :)

  8. I absolutely love your videos you girls are too adorable!!!! never tried this product before and now I know won't be buying it..Thx girls keep up the great work.

    <3 Marina

  9. @ Linh - Hey!! Thanks so much!! Hope everything is going well with the new job!! :-)

    @ Marina - Thank you!! It means so much that you watch our videos!

  10. Yay another Beauty girls do such a great job of these! This product sounds terrible, even with shorter layered hair I can't imagine it working. Also I am definitely going to give it some thought as to product suggestions for future battles :)

  11. Hey ladies, one idea I had was for brush cleaners. Like MAC brush shampoo vs. another brush cleaner and then compare which one you liked best. Or Sigma has that new system (althou maybe too pricey)
    Also for household stuff I'm always into what works with the least effort so any of those scrub free cleaners are always of interest to me too :) I'll keep thinking...

  12. @ Tracy D - Thanks for the suggestions! Good ones!! We have one more coming up this week and then we are going out to try something new. :-)

  13. I love the concept of the Beauty Battle! I also like that you tried a dry shampoo - I'm always looking for a new way to fix my oily 2nd day hair.... sad this one didn't work out!
