OMG yes!!! I love this product!! I am on my 3rd or 4th bottle of it. I have been using it for a while now but it really helped my hair when I bleached it. I have bleached my hair before and it did not do as much damage to my hair. Earlier this year, I went to my stylist and she used a 50vol on my hair to ombre my ends. I had been using box dye in various chocolate cherry colors for a couple of years. The 50vol lightened it a little but it was nowhere near the blonde I wanted. So a couple months later, I decided to bleach my hair. I've done it before, I can do it again, right? Well, I forgot that the first time I did it, I used a 30vol to bleach. My stylist had used a 50vol on my hair and said that my hair wasn't damaged at all and she could have used a 60vol. So I figured, I can use a 40vol to bleach my hair. Big mistake. It wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't put my hair in a low bun while bleaching as this caused my hair to get really hot. It was so hot, I could barely take the hair tie out of my hair without feeling like I was going to burn my fingers! I guess you're not supposed to do that. I know that now but my hair suffered for it and because very damaged and gummy in the areas where my hair got really hot. The rest of my hair was fine but still very dry from the 40vol. I have used many products to help restore my hair: Infusium 23 leave in conditioner, multiple hair masks, Aphogee Protein treatments, olive oil, coconut oil, the list goes on. But I really feel like this product is what has made a huge difference. I use this after I wash my hair, when I braid my hair (I'm not using heat on my hair so to look like I actually styled it, I'll braid it and sleep with the braids to give my hair waves the next day), and use it on my hair when it's dry. My hair feels so much softer than it did and is not as frizzy. I do still have some areas of gumminess when my hair is wet but it is a lot better than it was and my hair looks so soft when it is dry now because of this. I now go through about a bottle a month but for the 7 or 8 dollars that it costs and the help that it has done, I will gladly continue to buy it!

Liquid -Kat Von D - Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

For reference, I have oily skin, I live in a hot and humid climate and have moderate acne scarring. I use this in Medium 52. This is by far one of the thickest full cover foundation I've ever tried. Don't get me wrong, I love a full coverage make up and I wear full coverage makeup on a daily basis but this is so thick it's like a paste. The coverage is no doubt full, but the texture is too thick that it's made it really hard to blend, I practically have to drag it across my skin. I also hate that it emphasizes my pores and and any textural issue I have on my skin. Settles on my smile lines and just make me look cakey and heavy. And like I have two pounds of make up on even with just one pump of this. Longevity is nearly as good as ELDW. Controls oil well. There are many other full cover foundation on the market that is thin and provides just as good a coverage and longevity ie urban decay all night, and Marc Jacobs remarcable. I would not recommend this one. Hate that I wasted so much on this.

Lipstick -MAC - Glaze in Pervette

I bought this a long time ago and recently found it in my makeup kit. I love to layer it over NYX Liquid Lingerie in Embellishment. It gives a nice iridescence to the color. I do agree that it can be gritty. I thought it was just because I have had it for so long but I guess that's just the nature of it, judging by previous reviews. I will still use it because although it feels a little gritty, it does not look gritty and I like the color it gives over Embellishment. I will have to swatch a newer one at MAC before I decide it I'm going to repurchase. But for now, I'm liking it as a topper to other lipsticks. There is very little color payoff on me when used alone.


Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Fusion water resistant

I'm already a fan of the LashBlast mascaras, and I didn't have a particularly different experience with this one versus the others that I've tried (LashBlast Original orange tube, normal and waterproof).
I love the wands on the LashBlast mascara, and this was no different. My only complaint is the brush makes it a little bit hard to get the corner lashes and bottom lashes without smearing. The Fusion mascara thickened my lashes and definitely made them look longer. I wouldn't say there was a huge difference between the regular LashBlast and the Fusion version. I only used one coat at a time so I can't say if it was good for multiple coats or not.
I personally had no problems with flaking (with 1 coat) but it wouldn't hold a curl. My lashes are straight and a bit on the short side, so I need something that holds a curl and doesn't weigh them down.
My only other complaint for this mascara was that it dried out SO FAST. The normal LashBlast mascara dries out kind of fast on it's own, but I found this definitely dried out faster than other mascara's I've owned. I was fairly disappointed because the tube is pretty big, and I feel like I'm missing out on half the product. Because it's the waterproof version you can't add sterile saline solution to re-hydrate it once it's dried out either.

All in all, it did the job and didn't burn my eyes, but I won't re-buy this particular version of the LashBlast Mascara.


Eyeliner -Marc Jacobs - Highliner Gel Crayon Eyeliner - Blacquer

I received this as a birthday gift from Sephora last year. When you swatch it on your hand, it looks gorgeous. When I try to put it on my eyes, not so much. This migrates around my eyes on me and disappears when I apply it on my waterline. For being a gel type liner, I thought it would be much easier to apply on my waterline and it just isn't. I will use it up (or try to, lol) but I think CoverGirl's Liquiline Blast Liner works much better at a fraction of the cost.


Palettes -Sephora - Sun Bleached Filter Palette

I am glad that this works well for the other reviewer that posted about it. I have to respectfully disagree due to my experience with it. Maybe my palette is old or I got a bad one or something but I don't find the shadows to be creamy and I had fallout with mine. Not to mention that there is very little color payoff with most of the colors which I find to be surprising because I am so fair (think C2 fair) so I thought that all the colors would show nicely on me but nope. Only the darkest colors really show on me. I do still use some colors as transition shades and can layer the other ones because I will always find a use for a product I don't like. This was a gift and I won't waste it! But I still wish the color payoff was more.
