New Beauty Products + Dryer and Curling Iron Review!

|

I bought a makeup palette, hair dryer and curling iron! See the review of the new dryer and curling iron and how they compare to my T3 products I have been using.

I went to Ulta the other day to buy the Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer and the Beachwaver Pro 1.25 Curling Iron. While I love, love my T3 Hair Dryer and my T3 Pro Curling Iron, I thought I would try the Revlon and the Beachwaver to see if they would work on my hair. I also went in to buy the Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette. I absolutely love the colors in this palette!

First, a bit more about my hair! I have fine hair that is slightly wavy. It doesn’t take a long time to dry my hair since has a fine texture. I keep highlights on my hair and is easy to curl. I either curl my hair with a curling iron for a wavy look or if I don’t have extra time to style my hair, I wear it straight and straighten it with my Chi straightening iron.

Here is the Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette I bought and LOVE it! I have used the lighter colors on the left and they are gorgeous.

Two other products I love and have been using are the Charlotte Tilbury Super Cindy Lip Color and Pillow Talk Lip Liner. I love this lip combo since it gives you some color, but are subtle nude tones. See a photo of below of me wearing all 3 products!

Here are the Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer, the Beachwaver Pro 1.25 Curling Iron and DryBar Hold Me Hair Clips I just bought:

Here are my T3 Hair Dryer and T3 Pro Curling Iron that I have had for two years now. They are consistently great tools.

Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer vs. T3 Hair Dryer

Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer

PROS:

  • This dryer speeds up the drying time for your hair, in like half the time!
  • Because it has a brush built into the tool, you dry your hair with one hand and you can use your other hand to control which portions of hair to dry.
  • My hair was so soft and straight when I was finished! If I wanted a straight style, all I would have to do is finish with a bit of hair spray and I’d be done.

CONS:

  • The dryer seemed to get a bit hotter toward the end of using it.
  • Louder than my T3 Hair Dryer.

T3 Hair Dryer

PROS:

  • Consistent heat and does not overheat.
  • Lightweight and quiet.
  • Long life motor – I have had mine for 2 years and it still works great!

CONS:

  • More expensive.

The Hair Dryer Verdict

I love both products! I love that the Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer dries my hair in half the time and that my hair is super smooth and straight. I love my T3 Hair Dryer in that it has consistent heat, doesn’t overheat, is lightweight and quiet and consistently helps my hair the same everytime. It is more expensive than most hair dryers, but is well worth the investment. I will use both hair dyers, but if I will be styling my hair straight, I’ll use the Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer.

Beachwaver Pro 1.25 Curling Iron vs. T3 Pro Curling Iron

Beachwaver Pro 1.25 Curling Iron

PROS:

  • Does the curling for you
  • Gives you consistently soft curls

CONS:

  • Requires some coordination in operating the left and right buttons. Sometimes I pressed the wrong button and it started going the other way!
  • I sometimes accidentally pressed the “home” button when I my hair was curling.
  • Can only curl a small portion of hair at a time.
  • More expensive than most curling irons

T3 Pro Curling Iron

PROS:

  • Can curl my hair fast
  • Gives you consistently soft curls
  • Curls stay longer

CONS:

  • More expensive than most curling irons

The Curling Iron Verdict

I still love my T3 Pro Curling Iron! I love how it curls my hair and my curls stay longer, plus it’s easier to operate and I don’t have to think to operate it! It costs just a bit less than the Beachwaver. I do like the Beachwaver Pro 1.25 Curling Iron in that it produces softer curls.

Here is what my hair looked like after I used the Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer and the Beachwaver Pro 1.25 Curling Iron. I also used the Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette, Charlotte Tilbury Super Cindy Lip Color and Pillow Talk Lip Liner. I don’t tend to wear a lot of makeup, just like having a natural look!

  1. Hi, I just recently purchased the T3 Cura Luxe hair dryer as part of a kit at Ulta and it’s my favorite hair dryer I’ve ever had! I like that it is light and quiet, and also very luxe-looking ­čÖé A few months back, I got the Revlon dryer and am not nearly as fond of it. I find it adds a great deal of volume to my already voluminous hair, and I can’t get my hair straight with it. I have a lot of fine, wavy hair. I used to use a Beachwaver for years until my daughter took it over, and have used a Hot Tools ceramic iron in the meantime that I enjoy. I have been eying your T3 iron and that’ll probably be the next one I get!

    I’ve also had that eyeshadow palette before and enjoy it. I’m currently stuck on Mac’s Paint Pot in Painterly as a sole color. I think you may like it as we have similar coloring. I just got my first Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Pillow Talk and am liking it too. I’d like to see you review more of her line as our tastes seem to be similar!

  2. Christine,

    I’m so glad to hear you like the T3 dryers too! Yes, the T3 curling iron is the best in my opinion. I can tell a difference between it and cheaper curling irons. The T3 gives consistent, soft curls and doesn’t damage your hair.

  3. The eye shadow palette by Tarte looks gorgeous. I love neutral colors and might have to check this one out. Are there matte colors in the assortment? I recently learned that matte texture is essential for using as the “crease” for minimizing the “hooded eye” I’ve seemed to develop with age. Thanks for sharing.
