I bought this dryer because I was looking for a replacement dryer with a comb attachment that actually went with the dryer. I had no problem buying a more expensive dryer, but they are hard to find with comb attachments. I had a Conair one before this one and liked it, but it was heavy and snagged my hair. This one was much better, and dried my hair really fast. I am African American, with natural hair, and this was perfect. It was light weight, and the comb did not come off once. I am very happy with the all the attachments and the quality of the dryer itself. When you buy stuff like this, it makes you realize that just because it inexpensive, doesn't mean it cannot get the job done
Moisturizers -AMBI - Even and Clear Daily Moisturizer
atbmeg 3/10/2012 8:00:00 PM
This product broke me out along my chin line. I do not have sensitive skin, so it was a little weird for me because most products do not break me out. I was very disappointed in it.
Primer/ Corrector -MAC - Prep + Prime Face Protect SPF 50
atbmeg 5/8/2011 1:22:00 AM
I bought this due to recommendations. I love it. I was looking for a sunscreen that I could use with my makeup, and this works perfectly on my combination skin. I hardly oil up at all. Now I do use E.L.F. setting spray, so it could be the combination of both products. But, I love it as a primer and sunscreen. Because it is expensive, I use a different primer at night that does not have sunscreen in it. If I am not using makeup, I use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock.
Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Studio Makeup Mist & Set Spray
atbmeg 5/7/2011 5:41:00 PM
I love this spray. It does make my makeup last longer and at such a great price. My makeup looks like the I first applied at the end of the day, fresh and perfect. I cannot believe that I love this so much. If you can find it you should pick it up, which I got mine from target at 3 dollars. Yes the bottle is small, I only need about 2 or three sprays on my face. I have no problem with the smell, but I am not sensitive to smells. The smell last less then a minute though. Great product E.L.F!
I love these zit zappers. I think the packaging is perfect. Because it is small and fits easily in my purse. I have good skin, but one in a bull moon I get a deep pimple on my nose or chin (the kind that has no head. I use tree tree oil, but refuse to use it when I am out, due to the smell. I am able to use this while out in public for the extra help. Worked great, without the zit zapper my pimple would have a taken a whole lot long to heal .This definitely cut the healing time in half. Great product From e.l.f.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush (Stippling, Skunk Brush)
atbmeg 4/22/2011 8:42:00 PM
I bought this in a set and was disappointed because it sheds so much. I mean, for 50 something dollars it sheds every single time and quite a bit. I also have the Sonia K. brush which was twelve dollars and does the same exact thing for a lot less. I also have the e.l.f studio brush for only 3 dollars which is just as good. I would recommend this product only if you are a brand snob and have to spend money on something because it cost a lot, and you want to show people that you have the money to spend. But, if you are looking for a great quality foundation brush, and works even better then the 190 then give the Sonia K or even the studio tools skunk brush a try. They are all great and you can buy all both and still have lots of money left over. I would have returned this brush, but it came in a pack that has other good brushes so I kept it. But believe me, if I bought it on its own, I would have returned it as soon as possible Update I had to return this product I couldn't take it anymore. This thing shed so bad. When took it back to Mac they said that the sets are not as good of quality as the single full size brushes. I have never had a problem before with the sets. Oh Well. I bought a studio tools brush stippling brush to replace this one for 6.99 (this is because I need to have three brushes for foundation because I do not always clean them right away) it was totally worth it and will replace my others then then wear out with this one
Masks -Unlisted Brand - Aztec - Indian Healing Clay
atbmeg 4/22/2011 8:38:00 PM
This feels so good on my skin. It is like no other mask that I have ever tried. The sucking feeling feels so good on your face (at least to me) and when you wash it off your face is even red. Try it if you see it . I bought mine at Vitamin Shoppe for 7.99 which is a deal.
Cleansers -Aveeno - Clear Complexion Cream Cleanser
atbmeg 4/22/2011 8:35:00 PM
I bought this and I liked it. I like to use a cream cleanser before regular my facial soap, or just cream cleanser. This does the job nicely to me. I do have good skin though. I cannot say it brightens my skin because I do exfoliate. If you like cream cleansers like Noxzema, or clean and clear you could give this a try. You just do not get a lot in the package for the money.
Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. - Studio Angled Eyeliner brush
atbmeg 4/22/2011 8:28:00 PM
This was an okay product. I have the Sonia K. eyeliner brush and like it about the same. I have a preference for angled eyeshadow brushes verses this kind. But I can say I was able to put my gel liner on with no problem. It is stiff enough to handle the job and for a great price. I am satisfied with it. I will say this though. The Sonia K one is only 5.99, so you are not really saving a big deal of money on this. I would get that one over the e.l.f one. But, if they did not have the Sonia one, this one is a decent alternative.
Palettes -NYX - Nude on Nude Palette (20 eyeshadow + 10 lip)
atbmeg 4/15/2011 12:56:00 PM
This is supposed to be the Urban Decay naked palette. I personally did not was to pay 50 dollars for a nude palette. I love urban decay, but I had the chance to buy it, because every time I went into ulta it was there. I bought this instead and love it. I will not use the lip gloss, but I love the shadows. Very nice packaging, very good pigmentation. I personally thought it was worth it. I paid 14 dollars for it because Ulta was having a 40 percent sale on nyx Very happy with it. Another great nyx product
Very good quality nice peppermint smell. Pretty standard price for natural lipbalm. I would buy again, because it works and it is not waxy.
Eyeliner -Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips Gel Creamliner (all)
atbmeg 3/20/2011 7:42:00 PM
I absolutely love these eyeliners. I do not love the purple, but I do love the black. They are very pigmented and I have no problem with smudging. I got mine on sale for 2 dollars and some change. I only own two other kind of gel liners (mac, and wet n wild) I love the mac, but it is expensive, and the wet n wild is okay but it is so hard to clean my brush after using. This comes with three eyeliners and the quality is so great. I cannot find a better deal.
I love eBay eyelashes. But you have to like synthetic eyelashes to like these. I have a preference because synthetic is easier to reuse and are cheaper. There are many different kinds on eBay, so you have to know what you are looking for. I know that I do not like to much volume, but prefer length (not to much though). Great buy. I paid about 1.30-1.43 per box (including shipping)
Eyes -Unlisted Brand - dollar tree brand fashion eyelashes
atbmeg 3/20/2011 2:17:00 AM
I finally decided to do a review on this item. I bought these from the dollar tree and went a little berserk. They are only one dollar (obviously) but they are just as good as brand name ones like Ardell. I cannot compare them to a pair of MAC eyelashes because their is no way in hell I am paying 14 dollars for eyelashes. These are synthetic (which I prefer) blends in easily with your own natural ones. These are the first pair of lashes that I decided to reuse because they are still look new when I take them off and clean the mascara off of them. I normally buy my eyelashes on eBay (love these), but I decided to give these a try. I ended up buying all I could from the dollar trees in my area. There are 6 different styles and I only bought 5 of those styles because one is a volume type style that I do not like. Great item. I love love love the dollar tree
Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - Curlformers-Hair Flair Ltd.
atbmeg 3/7/2011 11:38:00 AM
Love these. I have naturally wavy hair that I have never been able to wet set. I have tried magnetic rollers and mesh rollers. I do not really know my hair type, but it is not course, and it is not overly wavy either. I have never been able to get close enough to the roots when I used the other methods to wet set my hair. At 8 dollars a pack(including shipping) I originally bought the magic leverag on ebay, which is the knock off of these. I bought two packs which comes with 18 rollers per pack. It had 9 short per pack and 9 long per pack. These were both to short for my hair, which is to the middle my back. They worked just like the curlformers and were worth it because out came with two hooks and used two of the curlers. But I did have enough, so I went and bought 3 packs of the extra long curlformers and was able to do my whole head. These are very easy in my opinion, but I did see how others were messing up so I made sure that did not happen to me. I would say if your hair is not long, go and get the.ebay version. you will save over 50 dollars. I did not. sleep in them, I sat under the dryer, so I can not really say if they are comfortable not. but besides that I love them. Update: I slept in these, and I have no clue what anyone is talking about. They are as uncomfortable as any hair rollers that you sleep in. It is okay though because I do not usually sleep in rollers. Still a great product
