Conditioner -Hask -Cactus Water and Prickly Pear - Leave In Condtioner

on 4/20/2018 11:18:00 PM

This leave in is ok. It does provide help with detangling and preventing some frizz. Provides softness. It has a generic clean scent that does not linger too long (lasts maybe a couple of hours). The spray stream is even and fine to prevent globs of product from coming out. It is not moisturizing enough to skip shower conditioning. Will probably not repurchase.


Conditioner -Hask -Cactus Water and Prickly Pear

Saw this at Ulta and decided to give it a try - there were no reviews yet on their site, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It is marketed as a formula for "Weightless Moisture" -

Cactus Water

On the outside it may be prickly, but on the inside the cactus plant is known for its ability to retain large amounts of water and nutrients. HASK has bottled up this hair holy grail along with prickly pear seed oil to create an ultra-nourishing and hydrating collection: HASK Cactus Water Weightless Moisture Collection.

With 5 naturally occurring electrolytes, vitamins A, B and C, and minerals with rare antioxidants, Cactus Water moisturizes hair leaving it feeling soft and shiny without weighing it down. Perfect for fine or oily hair, the Cactus Water Collection keeps hair hydrated all day without excess oil or build-up. Quenching thirsty strands with nutrient-rich cactus water and prickly pear seed oil, dehydrated hair is revived and luminous.

Complete with a Weightless Moisture Shampoo, Conditioner, and 5-in-1 Leave-In-Spray, the Cactus Water collection brings dull hair back to life by conditioning, repairing, and adding shine.

I apply it after cleansing with a clarifying shampoo and leave it on for about 5 minutes. Rinses clean, has a generic but clean conditioner scent, white creamy texture. Does not weigh down my fine hair, but it does not provide as much moisture as the Hask Superfruit Conditioner. For this reason, I will not repurchase this particular series of products and stick with the Superfruit line.

The bottle is hard plastic and hard to squeeze.

Concealers -Tarte -Shape Tape Contour Concealer

on 4/20/2018 11:09:00 PM

This concealer is my go to. I’m in my late 20’s and have pretty oily skin. A little goes a long way and blending this is like a dream. It looks best when blended with a damp beauty blender. Then translucent pore diminishing powder on top, but it could do without. The wand is chunky which is good because it covers just the right amount of surface area with one swipe under each eye. I will say, this is not a light, liquidy concealer - it is very thick and creamy. So a little goes a long way. This covers my dark circles like a dream. I’ve never seen it look powdery so idk what other reviewers mean but I will def be purchasing again. The only con with this is that it’s kinda messy after a while of inserting and removing the wand so the product gets built up and stuck on the rim where you screw it (kinda gross). But I’m ok with that as long as this formula stays the same! Ps also use a primer with this and if you don’t use primers..what are you doing reviewing stuff on here? That is all :)


Conditioner -Hask -Healthy Hair Conditioner - Superfruit

I got a sample sachet of this along with the shampoo in a subscription beauty box and finally used it this week. This stuff is the bomb for fine/thin dry hair that needs moisture without weight. Provides shine, manageability, decreased frizz (though not totally frizz free), softness and smells fantastic - exotic fruit scent. Both the shampoo and conditioner are available on Amazon.

Powder -NYX Professional Makeup -Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation

on 4/20/2018 11:04:00 PM

I was going to buy Laura Geller’s powder foundation but it was too expensive and looked off and chalky in the store. So I got this in Golden Beige. I am not sure why there are so many rants here but in my opinion, this worked better on me than MAC Mineral and Studio Fix powder foundations. The coverage was perfect with or without primer depending on the condition of my skin. The shade is perfect for my NC30 skin. The funny thing is that Studio Fix in NC30 doesn’t look as good on me but this has a bright and nice sheen to it. Totally recommend this!

Concealers -Tarte -Shape Tape Contour Concealer

foto

I had high hopes for this product but alas, it just does not work for me. It accentuates dry patches under my eyes that I don’t remember ever seeing there before if you can imagine that, plus it settles into every fine line that I have. My circles aren’t all that dark but this didn’t even begin to give any decent under eye coverage!! This stuff is not inexpensive and I expected a much better experience than what it gave me. Won’t be repurchasing. Sorry Tarte but there’s just nothing nice that I can think of to say about this one.

I did not find this moisturizing nor soothing.


Self Tanners -Jergens -Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer

foto

I don’t know why this is getting such bad ratings. I loooooooove this stuff. I use it everyday. There are a couple secrets. First, turn off the water in the shower and put this on while your skin is still dripping wet. Use about 2-3 tablespoons for your WHOLE body. You need to massage it in for about 2-3 mins, making sure to massage everything a couple of times. You are going to keep massaging until you body is no longer dripping and is now damp, and nearly dry. Then wipe your hands on a towel, then dab the towel lightly over your body. Then rub your hands on your quads to transfer a tiny bit of product, then rub that product into your hands the same way you do hand lotion. Use sugar scrub every other day to keep tan even. Best stuff ever! I hope they never stop making it.

Hair Color -L'Oreal -Root Cover Up Temporary Grey Concealer Spray

foto

I purchased this in the dark blonde color, and it was actually quite dark. I got this to help me out if I'm running late on getting my roots touched up. I do not have gray hair. I thought perhaps this product wasn't working for me because it wasn't meant as a general root touch up, but I saw a previous review say the dark blonde would be better suited to darker brunettes.

Foundations -wet n wild -Photo Focus Foundation

on 4/20/2018 10:20:00 PM

foto

I was using Clinique Beyond Something Something Foundation + Concealer and on one of my trips to Walmart I saw this wet n wild foundation and for the price, I thought what better can this be? But let's try it. I was very impressed, this foundation immediately substituted the Clinique one and I was really enjoying using it. It didn't emphasize my fine lines, it was easy to use, offered medium coverage and a great affordable price. What's not to love? Well the fact that it oxidized a lot. I was looking very orange and dark as hours went by. I bought a foundation base to try to make it better with no success because that defeated all what I was enjoying about this foundation. I will not repurchase again because I finally found my HG foundation.

I don't usually wear pastel or blues, greens etc...however, i received this amazing color along with a few others and i am in love! The color is stunning. Application was really nice. Good sweep and no streaking. I shook the bottle quite a lot to blend. Drying time was minimal! Bonus!!!! Very happy with this polish!

Eye Shadow -Urban Decay -Backtalk Eye & Face Palette

on 4/20/2018 10:12:00 PM

foto

So far, I guess I’m the only one who loves this palette. The eyeshadows are soft and pretty. Yes, they are not very pigmented and have to be built up, but my mature lids look better in sheer colors. The darker eyeshadows are more pigmented. All wear all day without creasing with my WnW primer. As for the blushes and highlighters, I love them, as well. They work well with my skin tone, and last all day without fading. I’m disappointed that this is LE. I’m sure I’ll pan this palette, and I’ll miss it. For reference, I’m 51, NC20 leaning neutral, with dark brown eyes and hair.


Mascara -Maybelline -Volum' Express The Colossal

on 4/20/2018 10:01:00 PM

Pros:
- goes on clump free;
- well separates the lashes;
- holds the curl;
- doesn't irritate sensitive eyes.

Cons:
- lots of fall-out through the day;
- the brush is too fluffy for short lashes or small eyes;
- smells terrible, really terrible.

I can't recommend.

Cleansers -Pacifica -Sea Foam Complete Face Wash

on 4/20/2018 9:59:00 PM

Pacifica is a great line and I love that's accessible and affordable. This face cleanser cleaned my face thoroughly without stripping or causing irritation and that's a big deal in my book. It removed my eye makeup with ease and I did not use a toner nor did my skin seem to miss it. I would definitely purchase again and this was my second bottled used up to the last drop. Pleased.
