Pressed Powders -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear Pressed Powder
shesays514 6/25/2010 3:30:00 PM
I love this line, and the pressed powder is great. Provides sheer coverage and I like that there are two shades together. My only complaint is about the packaging (and I do love that they are eco-conscious) because the mirror flips out on one side and the product flips out on the other, so you have to do a bit of juggling to use the mirror when applying. In general, though, great stuff!
Tinted Moisturizer -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear - Light to Natural
shesays514 6/25/2010 3:24:00 PM
Love this line! The tinted moisturizer is no different - the "natural" smell takes a little getting used to but it doesn't linger at all once it's on. Blends well and gives a nice, healthy glow. It doesn't provide much coverage, but that's not what it's meant to do - if I want a little more, I'll add some mineral powder on top and I'm set.
Eye Shadow -Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips - Brown Eyes

Love this color palate! The colors are very shimmery, but they're fun for summer and the lighter shades are great for highlighting. Good for travel, too, and keeping some clutter out of your makeup bag.
Eye Shadow -Physicians Formula - Shimmer strips for Hazel eyes

I have brown eyes and love this palate! Great colors, but definitely shimmery! Wonderful for summer, but sometimes feels like a little much for work. I love it for travel, because all your colors are in one place. They blend well and are fun to play around with.
Pressed Powders -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Face Powder

This is a great buildable powder - in fact, on days when I'm looking for light coverage I'll just use it in place of a foundation. It works really well with a tinted moisturizer too.
Blush -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear 2-in-1 Bronzer & Blush
shesays514 6/25/2010 3:11:00 PM
The colors are subtle, but buildable. I keep it in my desk at work for quick touchups and really like that it's a 2 in 1. My only issue with the Organic Wear packaging is that the mirror flips open on the other side so you have to juggle a bit to use the brush and then the mirror.
Mascara -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Mascara
shesays514 6/25/2010 3:07:00 PM
GREAT mascara. I was hesitant since I'm used to waterproof, but I have had no problems at all with smearing or running even in warm humidity. It stays where it belongs but comes off easily with water and a cloth. It applies smoothly and lengthens well, and I haven't noticed any clumping or flaking. My only issue is the packaging - the bright green leaf is just ridiculous. Most of the Organic Wear packaging is clean and subtle, so I'm not sure what's going on. The product itself is fantastic, though.
Treatments -Aveda - Damage Remedy Restructuring Treatment

This treatment is amazing. After just one use (left it on for about 45 minutes with my hair wrapped in a warm towel) I could feel and really SEE a difference. I let my hair air dry and it was much calmer and less fluffy than normal with healthy shine. It didn't seem to weigh my hair down much, either - even the next day it was shiny and smooth but not greasy. Will definitely make this a weekly ritual!
I just experienced Aveda tea for the first time at a shop this weekend and it was fantastic! Very subtley sweet and smooth. I was shocked when I asked the SA about the flavors and she mentioned licorice...normally I HATE that, but it was so subtle in this tea that I didn't even realize that's what it was. Highly recommend - I need to purchase some for home!
I actually had this done as a treatment at the salon and it was lovely. My hair was very soft and shiny - no huge transformations with this one, but it has a nice smell and it's a good treat for your hair every now and then. I imagine a bottle would last a long time.
Fantastic every day lip balm. Nothing fancy, but feels wonderful on and has a really subtle scent. It's a bit pricey, but a good product and if you're a Pure Privilege member you can often get lots of bonus point for adding one to your online order. They're great to keep at work, travel bag, gym bag, etc.
I think this just wasn't a product I need. I straighten my hair but I'm not looking for a lot of hold. It felt very stiff and sticky and left a lot of residue. Also not a huge fan of the aerosol can.
Treatments -Redken - Extreme Anti Snap [REFORMULATED]
shesays514 11/11/2009 2:36:00 PM
I only use it about twice a month because I'm really cautious about the extra protein, but I like to think it helps the condition of my hair! The product is really runny, but it doesn't take much and the bottle seems like it could last forever. I say I'll repurchase but I don't know if I'll ever need to!
This is a great product - I always combine a little with the Heat Glide before blow drying and they work well together. Will definitely repurchase!
Nice overnight treatment. I only use it when I'll be washing my hair the next morning, but it doesn't weigh hair down too much. The pump works well, but it is tough to tell how much product is left.
