Hair Color -Clairol -Nice n' Easy -new formula

on 7/22/2018 7:37:00 PM

New formula is horrendous. Ruined my hair. My hair is now 4 different colors. Looks dull..no dine and can't get the stuff out of your hair for at least 5 washing. The cream is impossible to put into the activator...hate this stuff....NEVER BUY IT AGAIN...WILL now use another company's product..

Fragrances -Unlisted Brand -Attar Bazaar - African Violet

on 7/22/2018 6:56:00 PM

I find AV a bit screechy when first applied–violet is a high-pitched note to begin with, so the beginning is a little shrill. It quickly settles, though, into a candied sweetness that makes me think, not of violets with sugar crystals, but violets dredged in powdered sugar. There’s a creaminess to it, a velvety softness. I detect no other notes (unless you want to call sugar a note)–no leafy green notes, no woods–just the violet flowers themselves. So if you are a violet purist and just want the sweet stuff, I recommend this. Also, there are not many violet scents in an oil formulation, so if you prefer that to an alcohol-based scent, definitely check this one out. For my own purposes, I found it a bit too sweet.


Mascara -Jordana -Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

I have very short, very straight lashes and this is the best mascara I have ever used. Most mascaras make my eyelashes black, yeah, but nothing dramatic. This actually makes me look like I have some good eyelashes and they actually curl up. I can layer it up and it never becomes too spidery looking. It stays all days and does not flake which I can't stand. It is super inexpensive and I buy mine at Walgreens. There is only the one color of black and it would be cool if they would add a brown to their line. Awesome stuff!


Toners -L'Oreal -Hydrafresh Toner

on 7/22/2018 6:38:00 PM

This is some amazing stuff. When I was a teenager, toners to me were very harsh and drying and so for years I didn't use one. I have been using L'Oreal's Hydrafresh Toner for about 5 years. It is not drying and does not strip your skin whatsoever. It actually is moisturizing and feels so fresh and hydrating. It softens my skin and I bring it down my neck as well. It has Beta Hydroxy Acid and Pro-Vitamin B5 to get rid of dull skin and to protect against moisture loss. After cleansing, I use this and follow up with moisturizer. This is fantastic and I can't live without it!

Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden -Britney Spears - Curious

on 7/22/2018 6:28:00 PM

I got my first bottle of Curious when it first came out and I'm probably on my 5th bottle right now. This is a very fresh, clean and sweet scent. It is long lasting and makes me think of spring and summer, although I do wear all different perfumes all year round. I don't discriminate! :) I was wearing this yesterday when I went to a rooftop party in Chicago and a girl stopped me to tell me how good I smelled. It's always nice to get compliments on your scent. I will definitely keep buying this as long as it continues being made. It is delicious, I love it!!

This is from Fragrantica:
The composition is based on the notes of white flowers surrounded by vanilla and musk nuances. It opens with fresh lotus, mouthwatering pear and magnolia. The intensive floral heart is composed of tuberose, jasmine and pink cyclamen. The sensual base is composed of musk, vanilla and precious woods.

Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand -Lip Freak

on 7/22/2018 6:13:00 PM

foto

Contrary to what you might expect, these are actually top quality, super nourishing lip balms that leave my sensitive lips soft, smooth, and moist. In fact, if you've got that pesky layer of dead skin on your lips, applying Lip Freak and rubbing your lips together will exfoliate without hurting the tender new skin beneath. They're not irritating at all, even on chapped lips. The "buzzing" description is accurate, and is nice to liven up an otherwise boring late afternoon at the laptop. Bubble Trouble is my fave so far! I do sometimes get tired of the buzzing and the flavor, but if you want a lip balm that puts the "fun" in "functional," Lip Freaks are worth a spin.

(I rarely give five lippies for packaging, but it's so friggin' cute!)

Palettes -Anastasia Beverly Hills -Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette

on 7/22/2018 5:52:00 PM

I do really love this palette. The shades are what drew me to the palette. There are nice cool and warm tones. However, the red and pink shades are very dry, chalky and powdery. They are beautiful colors which is a real shame. The shades this happens with is Love Letter, Venetian Red and Red Ochre. I've not had a problem with the rest of the shades. I can create really light or heavy eye looks with this.


Hair Treatments -Equate -Complete 10 Leave-in Conditioner

foto

If you love It’s a 10, but don’t want to spend that much, this is exactly what you are looking for.
It’s not as smooth, nicely fragranced, or as silky in application, but the results are the same.
I have found leave-in conditioners like these as a secret weapon to keeping hair healthy. I find them as necessary as shampoo and conditioner.
Sally’s, both Heavenly 7, Ion, and other brands at the store, have several “dupes” of It’s a 10 too. Many are often on special, and are sometimes cheaper. But I know Sally’s isn’t as easily available as this probably is.
My only complaints are I wish it was a few dollars cheaper, and that the packaging was better and more appealing. But, considering how much you save for the results, I highly recommend.
Overall: A-


Gels/Soaps -Soap & Glory -Rich and Foamous

on 7/22/2018 5:43:00 PM

foto

This is my favourite scent when I sniffed out all the Soap and Glory body washes. It is a creamy texture that suds up nicely with a shower lily. It's a delicious, sweet gourmand scent. I can definitely smell the brown sugar. It reminds me of cake or cookie but once i rinse it off, it has a clean scent almost floral scent? Maybe that's just me. It cleanses well while leaving the skin comfortable. I like to layer it with the matching lotion so I can smell it all day.

Mascara -It Cosmetics -Superhero Mascara

on 7/22/2018 5:37:00 PM

Aside from the fact that this mascara is just so-so and adds little lenght or volume, it did spider out my lashes.
The problemm arose when I took it off. One of the fibers slipped uner my upper eyelid and got stuck there for hours causing so much pain that I could think of nothing else except for the stabbing sensation. I laid down and held a reading light to my eye while lifitng the lid to have my husband look for the fiber. That did not work so instead l slid a folded papertowel back and forth between my eyeball and the lid. Be careful and close your eyes very tight when you remove this unimpressive mascara!
Needles to say, I will not be using this anymore. I will reach for my great Urban Decay Lash Perversion mascara and call it a day.

Cleansers -Unlisted Brand -The Face Shop - Rice Water Bright Cleansing Light Oil

on 7/22/2018 5:36:00 PM

I really, really wanted to like this product. It's not the worst product out there and successfully melted my Kiss Me Mascara... but the issue is that it never fails to sting my eyes and make my vision blurry for hours even after flushing it out with water and eye drops multiple times... and the worst part is that the product never does wash off completely even with foam cleansers and seems to irritate/dry out my face completely to the point of getting new wrinkles around the eye area.

I sadly cannot recommend this product. There are better products out there (like DHC olive oil cleanser) or Josie Maran's Argan Oil cleanser.

Liquid -Maybelline -Superstay 24HR Full Coverage Foundation

on 7/22/2018 5:34:00 PM

I LOVED the old version of this product, which was bulletproof and was the only long wear foundation that cooperated with my dry skin. I have psoriasis, so my skin is DRY and often flakey even after exfoliating, which means most long wear foundations are off-limits. But not this one. I found out just how amazing it was one day when I went to the gym while I still had that morning’s makeup on: at the end I was drenched in sweat but this stuff didn’t move! The rest of me looked like a hot mess, but my face was FLAWLESS, as if I had just applied all my makeup. The old version had REALLY good coverage and definitely felt like makeup, but didn’t look like a thick coat of makeup. Granted, it had no pump and only came in 6 shades and most were awful looking, but luckily the one shade that was great just happened to match me perfectly. When they discontinued it I was bummed, and I hoarded my remaining bottle, using it sparingly. When they launched the Superstay Better Skin version, I jumped at it but was disapointed, as the fair shades all looked gray and weird on me. Sigh. Then they launched this version and I rushed out to get it, hoping it would be the old version in improved pump packaging. Sadly, it is not. The packaging and price are great, but the colors are actually worse and oxidize like crazy. There is no longer a color that matches me—one shade is waaaay too pale and the next one up is waaaaaay too dark orange. But the real turn-off for me was how this new version sat on my skin. It felt thick, heavy, occlusive, and grabbed onto every dry patch and sank into every fine line. It found lines I can’t even see with a magnifying mirror when I have nothing on my face! It looks and feels like a thick and heavy layer of PAINT on the skin. Seriously, I have goopy face masks that look and feel more natural than this stuff, lol. Yes, it has amazing coverage, but so does one-coat latex paint, and I’m not putting that on my face either. So, the search goes on for a good long wear foundation that works with my dry skin. So far, Cover Girl True Blend Matte Made is the closest I’ve found, but it transfers and doesn’t last as long on the skin.

Moisturizers -EO -Everyone Face Moisturizer

on 7/22/2018 5:24:00 PM

The smell is very strong, it contains to much essential oils. I couldn't even stand it on my body. It's not very moisturizing either. Their face scrub is great when used on the body but it's waxy and filmy so no good on the face.

BB Cream -L'Oreal -Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream

on 7/22/2018 5:18:00 PM

I bought the anti redness B.B. cream which says it “transforms to universal shade to reduce the look of redness.” It’s green tinted and that green tint did not fade—it was still very apparent even after the “transformation” to a universal color. The universal color is VERY dark. Think someone with deep olive skin who tans easily. This did nothing to reduce redness, it left a green tint behind, and it’s so far off base from my coloring. It went in the trash because I took too long to try to return it.

Cleansers -Garnier -Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing water

on 7/22/2018 5:09:00 PM

foto

This removes even the most stubborn make-up. I use waterproof mascara and this is the only thing that takes it off. I tried the micellar water for sensitive skin (the pink one) and although it did removed my foundation, it did not managed to remove the mascara. I use it only at night because it leaves a slight oily film but it doesn't bother me that much. Sometimes I am not even use a cream after this because it hidrates my skin very well. I have normal/combination skin and it did not break me out. I always get along well with biphasic make-up removers and this one is no exception.
