This light powdery scent has been my signature scent since first wear. Its the only scent that I wear in the spring/summer and it lasts allday.
The is a nice deep purple without metallic or shimmer. Looks great on darker skintones and even be considered a neutral.
I tried this blush for the first time yesterday. This color is very pigmented and was absolutley gorgeous on my dark skin. The color was a beautiful matte rose that gave me very soft flush. It also lasted all day. I think that this will become my everyday color. I will repurchase.

This by far my favorite conditioner to cowash with. It moistruizes my hair and detangles easily. Its thick, creamy and its smells great. I would recommend this product to anyone who has dry curly hair.
Conditioner -Burt's Bees - Avocado Butter Conditioner

I purchased this product months ago from Ulta when I was trying to find a conditioner to relieve my dryness. The first time I tried it I had a relaxer in my hair. I followed the directions but after rinsing, I was not impressed. I did not decide to try it again until I cut all of the relaxer out. For naturally curly hair this product worked really well. My curls were soft and moisturized. I was pleasantly surprised, however this product is expensive for amount that is in the bottle. I have about half a bottle left after three applications and keep in mind that my hair is short. If you have extremely dry, frizzy curly hair then I would suggst this product IF you did not want to make a similar conditioner with the staples that you may possibly have in your kitchen. Although, this worked well I will not repurchase.
Conditioner -Alberto Vo5 - Strawberries & Cream smoothing conditioner

First, if you do not like heavy fragrances then this may not be conditioner for you. This conditioner has a strong strawberry milk smell which I cannot tolerate. I bought this due to the overwhelming recommendations from the curly community and for its price. I have mixed it up in my deep conditioner concoction and it allowed me to get the consistency that I wanted. Although I wanted to try it for cowashes, I can't due to the smell. I will not repurchase but I will try the passionfruit smoothie instead. Its a lighter scent.
Conditioner -Alberto Vo5 - Kiwi and Lime Squeeze Clarifying Conditioner

I think I like this conditioner. I used this after apple cider vinegar rinse to get the smell out of my hair (trying the no-poo method). My hair felt squeky clean, definitely clarified. Although I probably would not use this for cowashing (need a moisturizing conditioner), I definitely will continue to use it after ACV rinses especially due to the price - $1.
Conditioner -Suave - Naturals Tropical Coconut Conditioner

I bought this product to do a multiple of things (Cowash, mix, and leave-in). Though I have only used this so far for mixing up my own spray moisturizer, I know that its a keeper. After so many people have recommended the product in the curly community I decided to give it a try. I thought, "What's the harm, its only a dollar!" and I have no regrets. The price, quantity and quality are great. The conditioner is very creamy and smells great. I can't say its a staple product yet, since I have not used it for the purposes intended, but I have a good feeling that it will.
I bought this color on clearance after the holiday season half off. I had more glitter than expected and I had to apply three coats, but it was worth it. It's a nice fall/winter color.
This is the perfect muted pink on my dark skin. It's a pink color that I can wear in the office and can also put a tiny bit of of shimmery gloss in the center so it can stand out even more. The lipstick is creamy and feels good on my lips. With all NYX products, the price was very cheap. Always a plus!
Palettes -E.L.F. - Beauty Book - Smoky Eye Edition
kelleegross 8/19/2010 9:42:00 PM
This elf palette is so nice. It's 12 shadows for $5 and all of them are pigmented. With a good primer, the shadows last all day. They also blend well with other brands. It comes in a notepad package and when opening it, it gives you a diagram on how to achieve a smoky eye.
This is a great mascara for a drug store price. It gives tons of volume and length. It could even compete with the even pricier mascaras. For those who don't feel as though I doesn't give enough length, try another technique. Try applying a couple of coats then letting it dry for a minute or two then hold the wand vertically applying most of the mascara to the tips of ur lashes. It works for me everytime. The only drawback from this product is due to the size of the wand it is difficult for me to use it on my lower lashes.
This is one of the very few shampoos that I have tried and I truly disliked. After shampooing my hair it felt very rough; I would understand that if it were a clarifying shampoo, but its a moisturing shampoo. I had to return it. I'll stick to Loreal's Vive line.
NYX jumbo eye pencil in milk is my must have when applying bright shadows!!! The product is creamy and glides on acting as a great base for any shadow. They only flaw with this product is that it will crease if you don't blend it in.
Treatments -Peter Thomas Roth - Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads
kelleegross 8/19/2010 10:42:00 AM
I absolutely love this product. The first time I used this product, I noticed that my pores appeared smaller. I have been using it for 3 months now I have seen a huge improvement in my skin's texture and clarity. Although the product is called UnWrinkle, I am in my late twenties and it is a great mini microdermabrasion because of all of the alpha and beta hydroxy acids in it. This product could work for someone at any age. The only drawback is that it's $45, but the container has 60 pads so it will last you awhile.
