Conditioner -Suave - 2-Minute Deep Conditioning Treatment
ultagrl 4/15/2004 2:23:00 PM
This is a great deep conditioner. I finished up my garnier one, so i thought i would try something different, and with all the raves on MUA, I couldn't pass this one up. It is very creamy, and as soon as you put it on your hair, you feel the hair mask penetrate all the way down to the ends. This makes your hair so soft and so manageble. My hair stylist even mentioned since using this product my hair is really soft and in the best shape its ever been. Does not weigh hair down. I use it twice a week when i use a clarifying shampoo. Highly recommend this product! Plus it is so cheap for a really big tube! go out and get this today!
This works well with the color preserve shampoo. Like the shampoo it says it will preserve color 78% longer. I know it preserves color a lot longer than l'oreal colorvive. It is a creamy, very light conditioner, that does not weigh hair down or leave build up. The only thing i don't like about this conditioner, is that my hair gets very tangled, and i need to use an additional spray on conditioner after. Otherwise really good. Have already bought backup of this product!
This shampoo claims to preserve color 78% longer. Well, I am not sure of exact figures here, but it does preserve color a lot longer then color vive. This is a great shampoo, lathers well, very light scent, and cleanses very well. Definetly does not fade color. And does not weigh hair down. I have not noticed any build up either as of yet (almost through the entire bottle.) I use this with the color preserve conditioner. already bought back up!
This is great for colored treated hair. I recently got highlights and being as money conscious that i am I don't want to use anything harsh and will dull and strip the color. But this shampoo is designed to gently clarify for color treated hair. it is only $7.95 (which is not bad for salon brand at all!) and lasts a long time because I only use it twice a week. Leaves your hair soft and very clean feeling.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Fantastic Lash [DISCONTINUED]
ultagrl 4/8/2004 1:47:00 PM
I think I have found my HG mascara. I have been on a search for quite some time, but I think this it! Fantastic lash is fantastic! It stretches, seperates, lengthens, and makes my lashes look very pretty and very flirty. It even gives them bit of a curl without having to use an eye lash curler. And this mascara lasts a long long time without smudging (this has been my problem with all the other mascaras i have tried). Definetly recommend this mascara if you are on the search for the perfect mascara, this is the one!
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous - Shine That Pink
ultagrl 3/18/2004 4:06:00 PM
LOVE these l/g!!! This is the second one i have gotten, and have been wearing it everyday! It is a pretty shimmery pink that looks good with everything. I have very pigmented lips and this shows up very nicely. I love the smooth texture and has a light vanilish scent. Definetly will be repurchasing!
After all the good reviews, I am disappointed to say that I do not like this powder brush at all. I am currently on a very tight budget so I thought this would be a good cheap alternative to a higher end brush. But this brush is not soft at all and it feels scratchy. I clean my brushes at least once a week, and of all my brushes this one looks like it has been fried or something (the bristles are just sticking out everywhere). I treat all my brushes with proper care. This brush also distributes whatever powder I am using very unevenly. Will definetly not be repurchasing.
Styling Products -Garnier - Fructis Style - Smoothing Milk
ultagrl 2/1/2004 7:09:00 PM
YES YES YES!!! This is such a great product for my hair! I love the smell of fructis (the smell of green apples). I love what it does for my hair. I have naturally fine but lots of wavy frizzy hair. I apply two pumps of the rich creamy smooting milk, evenly distribute, and whala I have smooth controllable hair! I use this either to straighnen my hair w/ a blow dryer, or to let my hair natuarally dry wavy. Either way my hair turns out pretty darn good! Will be repurchasing.
Styling Products -Garnier - Fructis Style Mousse Volumizing
ultagrl 2/1/2004 7:06:00 PM
I got this when it was on sale at CVS for $2.99. Before I was using physique, but paying $8 for that, I was desperately trying to find a cheaper alternative. This product has 1/3 more the product of physique for a fraction of the cost. It has the signature smell of garnier fructis. It is a pretty good mousse. I use it for the front of my hair before i blow dry it straight to give it volume. It does a pretty good job of that. I also use it after the fructis smoothing milk when i want my hair to dry with a natural wave. It gives great results when I do that. It is not crunchy feeling but definetly gives me the hold I need to keep my waves from falling all day. Definetly give this product a try!
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers - Swiss Chocolate
ultagrl 2/1/2004 7:01:00 PM
I picked out this color because in the case it looked like a rich brown color with subtle gold shimmer...and it was just that when I applied it too. I think they have reformulated the color since the person who previously reviewed this color because there is no trace of orange in this color. This is a true brown. It applies so easily. When I picked it up I was wearing UD YDK on the lid, and i just added this color to the crease, and it was gorgeous! No creasing from this product. These e/s do not get the respect they deserve. Definetly recommend if you are looking for a shimmery rich brown e/s!
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Nude Lustre
ultagrl 2/1/2004 6:57:00 PM
Well I missed out on all the good deals when these first came out, so I got it at regular price and not at BOGOF either :( But that is ok, it was worth it! This is a great drugstore lipgloss...Finally! No obnoxious glitter and colors you can wear during the day. Nude Lustre is a great neutral color for my very pigmented lips. This color makes my lips a light pinky nude with a tiny hint of peach. Does not look milky or pastey. Looks very shiny and lasts a descent amount of time. There is just the right amount of stickyness. This is a great l/g!
I have never used cream blush before this product. I thought I would give it a chance in these winter months. It was a little pricey for drugstore, $8.95. But it comes in a sturdy see through compact with a pop out mirror. Good amount of product in the compact. The color is perfect for a LLL w/ cool undertones. It gives me that flushed just came from the chilly outside look. It is very creamy and blends REALLY well. Looks very natuaral. This is my new holy grail blush! Definetly will be repurchasing!
I received one of their e/s in a GWP from the fall 2003. It was a e/s duo in sweet and eggplant. These two colors are very pretty and shimmery. The sweet color is a shimmery light pinkish mauve and the eggplant is a plummy purplish pink color. This duo really makes my green eyes pop. This duo is no longer available, but you can buy the two colors seperately. The packaging is simple see through flip top. The texture of the e/s is very smooth and glides on easily with no creasing. Will replace when I run out of this e/s!
I thought I would splurge on this novelty body wash, cause usually I would never pay $18 for body wash. But who could pass up something that claimed to smell like cinnamon buns?! I really like this scent. I think it smells more like just cinnamon opposed to cinnamon buns, but it stills smells pretty tastey. I have yet to use it as a shampoo/conditioner, but it works great as a body wash. It lathers really well and fills the bathroom with the scent of cinnamon. I think the scent lingers for a little bit. But it leaves skin feeling very clean and very moisturized. Love the scent! will probably repurchase again in the future.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Cranberry Shimmer Lotion
ultagrl 1/9/2004 5:20:00 PM
Got this as a gift ( and didn't get the pump for easier application :( oh well.) But it has a pretty nice shimmer effect to it. I use this on my collar bone area and shoulders and gave me a nice glow (think sephora holiday catalog cover). I am not a huge fan of the cranberry scent, but the shimmer overrides that ( i am a shimmer freak!). A nice product and i am glad i got it before it was gone for the season.
