The way I feel about this conditioner is exactly the same as the review I wrote about the shampoo. Don't waste your money. Made my hair look and feel like straw.
Shampoo -Organix - Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo

I hoped this shampoo would be a sparkling gem of a drugstore find. Because argan oil has been all the rage, I really thought this product would work fabulously. I'm sad to say that it's one of the worst shampoos I have ever used. Even my husband who is extremely low maintenance with products didn't like it. If you want your hair to look and feel like straw, use this. Seriously, don't waste your money.

I cannot BELIEVE that I spent $27 on this. What was I thinking? I have been looking for a spray hair gloss and when I spritzed this on in at Dillards, it looked great. Because of that I was willing to overlook the loud scent. However when I got home, my hair looked dull, limp, oily, and lifeless. Do not waste your money on this! Back to the store it goes.
Eyeliner -MAC - Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner - Designer Purple

OMG I love love LOVE this intense velvet purple liner. I agree wholeheartedly with what all the other reviewers have said. It really does glide on like butter and lasts all day without smudging or fading. I think this color would flatter any skin tone. What are you waiting for? Treat yourself and bring out the beauty of your eyes with this liner!
This liner looks so pretty worn with MAC's longwear lipglass in Persistent Peach and MAC's Fleur Power coral blush. For a richer coral color, after lining my lips, I use the pencil to fill them in and apply the gloss on top. I am excited about experimenting with different gloss shades with this liner. A nude gloss would also look great, Highly recommend!
Lip Gloss -MAC - Longwear Lipglass Persistent Peach

Persistent Peach is a gorgeous light peachy pink glass that reminds me of NARs Turkish Delight but with a touch more coral. It goes beautifully with my MAC lipliner in Lasting Sensation. This is my first longwear MAC lipglass and it really does last. The only qualm I have with it is the sponge applicator which feels harsh on my lips.
I adore the gorgeous, rich coral color of this blush on my NC25 skin. Because it is so highly pigmented, I use it on my cheek bones instead of the apples of my cheeks and it adds definition without having to use a contour color. I apply a hint of my Bobbi Brown rose shimmer brick for a subtle glow that contrasts beautifully with the vibrant, highly pigmented color of this blush. I agree with other reviewers to use a light hand when applying it because a little goes a long way and it lasts all day. I got this blush to wear with MAC's Pro longwear lipglass in Persistent Peach lined with my MAC lip liner in Lasting Sensation that pairs beautifully together! If you are feeling bored with pink and peach blushes, try this because it's a perfect combination of both.
Not only is the creamy texture of this concealer very moisturizing to my sensitive under-eye area, it has amazing coverage for my inherited dark circles. I have this in B which is perfect for my NC20-25 skin. I also really like the tube that it comes in. Highly recommend, especially if you are looking for a concealer that is moisturizing. Love it!
I am in love with this blush in Audacious Orange. Wow. A tiny little dab will do to give me my cheeks the perfect amount of color to instantly make me look radiant and energized. Don't be put off by how orange this is in the pan because it is much less dramatic on. The packaging is insanely adorable, perfect for travel and fun to play with in my purse makeup bag.
Lipstick -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte #17 Red Muse

This luxurious lipstick has a soft, velvety texture and glides on like pure silk. Red Muse is a vibrant red orange that I think would be universally flattering on all skin types. Expensive but worth it.
I just got this blush in pink peony, which is actually not pink at all but a very sheer peach. I love how sheer it is because it imparts such an amazing and gorgeous flush of natural color on my cheeks. It is on the verge of being a highlighter because it is so light, but it has just enough hint of color to be a blush. The packaging is cute and sleek, and includes a brush that is pretty useless except for touchups on the go. It's a perfect blush for my purse makeup bag. I think the dainty, light peach color is so pretty for spring!
This polish is a gorgeous lavender hot pink with a pearl finish, perfect for spring and summer. I have it on my nails, but it would look amazing as a pedicure color, and I can't wait to wear it on my toes in cute summer heels and sandals. I love Revlon polishes, especially for the vibrant array of color selections. The names aren't as catchy and cute as OPI, but the application and staying power are just as good. Revlon's cosmetic line started out with nail polishes in the 1930's and they were a smash hit, even during the depression. I think the same allure continues with these polishes because there is nothing like a pretty nail polish for a great price that instantly lifts your spirit!
I am a red lipstick junkie and LOVE LOVE LOVE this lipstick! I prefer red shades with orange undertones and this is the perfect combination of the two. My HG red of all time, MAC's Lady Danger has been discontinued and this shade, along with Revlon Moondrops lipstick in Hot Coral are currently my two favorite reds. As other reviewers have said, this is both a matte and a creamy formulation. It is highly pigmented and has great staying power. While I don't care for the scent of Rimmel lipsticks, I still gave this a 5 lippie rating because the vibrant shade of red is utterly fabulous. I also like the sleek black tube this comes in. This is an awesome drugstore find!
Like other reviewers have said, this gloss is a gorgeous nude with copper, beige and brown undertones. It's the perfect nude lip color on me which is great paired with smokey eyes, yet also looks great with a simple, no mu look. Perfect worn with both UD Naked 1 & 2 e/s palettes.
I normally do not wear oil free foundations because I like a dewy finish, so I am surprised at how dewy this foundation looks since it is oil free. I wear this in Fiji which is perfect for my NC20/25 skin that has slight yellow undertones.This foundation has a light and sheer finish which I like, but does not have the full coverage as much as Stila's 20 Watts which is one of my HG foundations. If you are looking for a foundation that is dewy, but light on your skin, try this. I wouldn't recommend it though if you are looking for a foundation with more coverage.
