Lipstick -Revlon - Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm - Gothic
kyl77 12/30/2012 1:14:00 AM
This is a beautiful deep berry stain, which lasts a long time. The balm keeps lips from drying out. I only wish the balm swiveled out of the tube rather than the entire end being exposed. I'm afraid I'm going to break it off. Otherwise, this is a great product.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Perversion

This eye pencil smears terribly. The lead is too soft. It has to be sharpened constantly and it's overpriced.
I recently received this berry scented, light pink, lip duo as a full size sample from Beauty Army. One side holds a lipstick, and the other side holds a lipgloss. There's even a built-in mirror. This tingles a bit, which I could do without. Otherwise, this is a good product.
Treatments -Organix - Repairing Awapuhi Ginger Instant Recovery Mask

Organix is one of my favorite drugstore lines. I especially like the yummy smelling Awapuhi Ginger products, which includes this super hydrating treatment mask. After shampooing, I work this mask through wet hair and leave it on for 3-5 minutes while I finish my shower. It rinses easily and leaves my hair feeling nourished; not weighed down. For extremely dry and/or damaged hair, you can up the conditioning factor by covering your hair with a shower cap and keeping the treatment on for 20 minutes.

Rich and creamy lather. Intoxicating scent. Affordable price. Fantastic body wash.
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Lypsyl - Regular Lip Balm

I don't really understand the hype surrounding this product. The formula is okay, but it's really no better than chapstick. The packaging is cute but the bumblebee applicator is hard to push up. I won't repurchase.
Conditioner -Organix - Repairing Awapuhi Ginger Conditoner

This conditioner is a real find. It's affordable. It really hydrates and softens dry and/or damaged hair. And it smells terrific.
Shampoo -Organix - Organix Repairing Awapuhi Ginger Shampoo

Organix sells some of the best smelling products out there, and the Awapuhi Ginger Shampoo is no exception. The tropical scent is amazing. I also love the generous lather which is rare in a sulfate-free product. Overall, a terrific shampoo.
Styling Products -Organix - Nourishing Coconut Milk Weightless Mousse
kyl77 11/9/2012 9:30:00 PM
This mousse is oddly watery and produces rather mediocre results. And yet I would buy it again. Why, you ask? Because it smells amazing! And the yummy coconut aroma lasts for hours. So, think of it less as a styling product and more as a hair perfume.
I spray this mousse directly on my roots and massage into my hair concentrating on the crown. Then I blow dry with a vent brush to get maximum volume. When I've finished, my hair is soft and full without any of the stickiness that other products leave. I only wish this product was cheaper. I'm still looking for a drugstore product that compares.
Conditioner -John Frieda - Full Repair Full Body Conditioner

This is a good instant conditioner, if you want a product that won't weigh hair down and does a decent job of detangling. This will not, however, do much for damaged hair. So, if you color your hair or frequently use heated styling tools, you'll want to keep a deep conditioner in rotation.
Shampoo -John Frieda - Full Repair Full Body Shampoo

This shampoo cleanses well and gave me a lot of soft volume. I only wish this product was sulfate free. Otherwise, this is a good shampoo.
I bought the roller ball version of this for $20 dollars at Sephora, and I love it. It's a very bright and uplifting scent, but it's subtle at the same time. A sunny fragrance for gray days. I only wish it lasted longer on me.
I just bought a limited edition set of these in pink peppermint. I have to say I was impressed by the way these powderless sheets soak up the oil without disturbing makeup. The scent was also very refreshing.
I just received a deluxe sample of this from Sephora and couldn't wait to try it out. The first thing I noticed was the rosy scent which is unusual in a mascara. The brush is unusual too. One side is flat. The other side is triangular shaped. As for the application, I wasn't impressed. This formula made my sparse lashes clump together and look spidery. For those with wimpy lashes like me, I recommend Clinique High Impact Mascara instead. It doesn't clump and it's a fraction of the price of Lancome's Hypnose Star.
