I'm picked this up at TJ Maxx for about $10. I'm rather impressed by it! It doesn't make my hair 100% silky, but I'm able to have more control over the cowlicks and little annoying nuances my hair has when it needs to be cut. It definitely makes things more manageable!
Hair Color -Garnier - Nutrisse Dark Intense Auburn

THIS IS FOR THE MEDIUM INTENSE AUBURN! I cannot get over how much I love this hair dye! Four months after I dyed it and had a good inch and a half of regrowth, this color was still going strong. I get TONS of compliments on my hair and NOBODY believes how well it holds up without fading. Hell, even *I* don't believe how well it holds up! Gorgeous color. Just...gorgeous!
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Fine Fragrance Mist in Pink Chiffon
baby_grazi_x05 10/14/2012 6:26:00 PM
OH MA GOD!! I absolutely adore this scent!! I bought it on a whim during their B3G2 promotion and it has replaced Paris Amour as my everyday fragrance. So feminine and pretty without being immature. PERFECT!! I'm not a fan of the packaging, though. I really prefer the old body splashes with the screw-on lids. I wanted to decant some into a smaller spray bottle for a trip and couldn't! I had to turn to my Country Chic in the old style bottle! Boo!
I first purchased the Jack Black lip balm in the mint flavor, and found that while I liked the tingly feeling, it seemed to dry my lips out further. So I tried the lemon chamomile flavor and LOVE it. It makes my lips so soft and smooth! Plus the scent is YUMMY! It's a little on the pricey side for lip balm, but it's a luxury I'll spend the money on.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Pink Truffle
baby_grazi_x05 9/19/2012 9:17:00 AM
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this product yet. And how fitting that it would be my 100th review because WOW!! I'm in love with it! It was my first Lip Butter, and I've almost completely used it up despite the hundreds of barely, used, half used, and brand new lippies I have in my collection. It's rare that something like this happens. It's the perfect shade to just throw on to tie everything together. It goes with damn near every eye look. And today? I forgot to wear blush, and I found this in the bottom of my purse. Hello, perfect cream blush shade!! Will definitely be repurchasing.
Lip Gloss -NYX - Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Nude Pink
baby_grazi_x05 9/17/2012 1:35:00 PM
I'm in LOVE!! I'd heard good things about these glosses from YouTube beauty gurus, but felt like I had enough MAC glosses to last through a zombie apocalypse. Which is probably still true, but I digress. The texture is wonderful. I'd prefer to use a balm underneath them, but I don't have one with me today and it's just fine on its own. The color is great as well. This is the color I was looking for to replace my beloved MAC Angel Cream Plushglass. I love it!
Eye Primer -NYX - HD High Definition Eyeshadow Base
baby_grazi_x05 9/17/2012 1:32:00 PM
I've only been using this for a few days, but I can say with confidence that I am definitely a fan. I took the advise of a few people that left reviews and topped it with transluscent powder before applying shadows. I tried it once without, but it's a bit too wet for that. I used it under my eyeshadow at my best friend's wedding this weekend and they didn't BUDGE!! Even after dancing in the California heat all night. It also doesn't make my eyelids itch like UDPP. Will definitely repurchase.
I rather like this. It does a great job of setting my makeup without looking too cakey. However, I've been using the Tone Correcting Powder from ELF and for the price, I'd rather use that than this.
I got this at CVS because CG items were B1G1 50% off, plus I had a coupon. I got the cult favorite - Lash Blast to try out again (didn't care for it when it first came out, but have heard too many good things about it to not try it again!). I couldn't find much else and I needed a liquid liner, so I picked this up. I'm not a fan. First off, I accidentally grabbed the brown one instead of the black one that I wanted. That's not the fault of the product, and in fact I've used it more than my black liner because it gives a softer look, which is nice. The packaging is so-so. I like felt-tip liners, but that's also the only thing I've ever used. What I REALLY don't like about this liner is that it takes FOREVER to dry. I put it on and then do my eyebrows before my lashes so the liner has time to dry. My brows take a hot minute, and the liner STILL doesn't dry! So when I go to curl my lashes, the curler gets stuck to the liner and takes it off almost completely. Ridiculous! Not a fan.
Concealers -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles
baby_grazi_x05 8/2/2012 9:22:00 AM
I REALLY like this concealer! The product itself is great, and the price is right. I like the concept behind the packaging, but I feel like it might be unsanitary. However, I purchased two of these - one in the highlighter color, and one in the lightest color - and BOTH of the twisting mechanisms broke! It appears that they cracked around the bottom of the red part. Now, whenever I try to twist it up, they just unscrew. I'm going to take them back and exchange them. Hopefully it's just a fluke, although it seems unlikely. But I really like the concealer itself!
Styling Products -Paul Mitchell - ExpressStyle Quick Slip Styling Cream

I got this Buy One Get Two Free at Regis and I'm glad I did! It does seem like it takes less time to dry my hair now and my hair is SO sleek, but not OILY. I feel like I got a professional blowout. I'm very impressed!
Lip Treatments -Carmex - Click Stick Original SPF 15
baby_grazi_x05 7/22/2012 9:22:00 PM
Seriously, I don't know why I ever try to stray from this stuff. I've tried the eos, Jack Black (which I do like), and countless others. None of them quite give me the same results that this does. I've been having serious issues with my lips being flaky and cracking, but I just picked up the tube on my dresser and use it and my lips have done a complete 180. Cheap, and EFFECTIVE. I love this stuff!
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Detoxifying Facial Cleanser
baby_grazi_x05 7/17/2012 8:59:00 AM
Seriously, I've been using Clean and Clear products off and on since puberty (lol), and have yet to be disappointed. My HG moisturizer came from them but was, of course, discontinued. In any case, this stuff is AWESOME! My face feels clean, but not tight. The smell is AMAZING, and I love the slightly cool feeling it leaves my face with. Energizing? Maybe for a few minutes. But it's no replacement for my morning java, lol. But it's still great!
The color is only okay on me. But that's as far as the good aspects go for me. I HATE the texture and I HATE the smell! They're soo greasy and the smell is just kind of...rancid. I usually LOVE NYX products. This was just a fluke.
Primer/ Corrector -Rimmel - Fix & Perfect Pro Primer 002
baby_grazi_x05 7/12/2012 2:27:00 PM
I'm thoroughly enjoying this product! It gives my skin a nice smooth feeling rather than the greasy one I get from most silicone-based primers. I liked E.L.F's mineral-infused primer, but I hated the packaging. After hearing rave reviews about this from beauty bloggers, I decided to give it a go. I'm glad I did! The first primer Rimmel came out with was weirdly peachy and I didn't care for it. But this one is spot on!
