Hair Styling Tools -Solano - HAI Convertable Flat Iron

I've had this iron for 2 years now? Bought it discounted through a friend who does hair~ Def the best iron I've ever used hands dowm. I have not tried any of the other higher end brands but this one is absolutely perfect- Perfect size, heats up fast and glides smooooth through my hair. I can say after this I can never go back to those cheapo irons, you know what I'm talking about, what a nightmare~ believe me Ive tried them all! Just hoping this thing will keep its juice for a good long while :D If not? I'd def re-purchase.
i have to give another review, originally i think i gave it 5 lippies and now i'm changing that because while I really love the smell of biosilk, it really doesnt do much for my hair, it temporarily coats whatever frizz but it seems to actually dry my hair out, while simultaneously coating it in grease if the *lightest hand* is not used. Perhaps it's because my hair is relatively healthy and not fried&dyed. I am not into the fact that it dries out my hair though and I think frizz-ease is actually better in that it seems to penetrate the hair shaft and keeps my hair smooth and *light* feeling, without the feeling of a *coating* ...what I think a serum is supposed to do. I still use this once in a while because the scent is fresh but it's def not a *miracle product* for me anyway, my opinion is that (when I bought it) it was overpriced and for sure a little overrated.
I've got this in Juicy Pop, it is a lovely coral very shimmery and shiny and is fun to layer over lipstick- good staying power but like others have said, very very sticky (similar to revlon's lip vinyl) so windy day~ long hair~ ack! I probably would have loved something like this around age 14, not a big *high gloss* girl otherwise/anymore
Love this stuff. I'm always on the lookout for a great scrub, and lean towards more natural products- I too have to say I didn't think the smaller grains would cut it, I have majorly dry skin- but like everybody else here I was wrong ;) I think this stuff has a very fresh clean scent, isn't heavy or bothersome in the least. Works wonders and is inexpensive. I would repurchase.
I just have to say that Moss is absolutely gorgeous for green or green/blue eyes- I have pale cool skin tone and a lot of greens just plain don't work for me, I'm always looking for a good green liner- This green is just a touch cool-toned, and dark enough that it doesn't compete with your eyes color, it truly compliments/ and makes them pop! Oh yeah, the smudge end is also a plus of course- overall a great product, I wanna try grape,indigo and new black too! UPDATE: I'm taking a lippie off because the staying power really isnt that special, the top has cracked on me and for the price they simply do not include enough product in the tube
Loose Powders -Ben Nye - Neutral Set translucent powder

Great loose powder! I have naturally dryer skin, rather than oily so I don't need to use as much but it's great to set makeup... and if I'm going out for the night, this powder layers great to get the coverage you need. The shaker bottle isn't the best but I just pour/shake some into the cap and apply from there! I prefer this over any powder that claims to be 'neutral' but is labeled 'light, medium' etc. This leaves no color so it goes with virtually any skin tone, and you won't wreck your clothes or anything else if it happens to spill =)
I use this mostly as a concealer - Topped with a little powder this is great, very thick and stays put!For blending and application I recommend warming the top layers of the wheel to thin it out just a touch, with a blow dryer (or your breath!) Whether you have fair skin like me or not, it's made for everybody between the very light and dark. I got this for 9.99 from a costume shop and it's proven that it will last quite a while. UPDATE- Re-purchased on sale for 4.50 and still has been the best under-eye/everything concealer I've ever used. Def recommend
wow! Pleasantly suprised with this stuff! I bought in black/brown- I have fair skin and thin lashes and this stuff can really plump 'em up. Nomatter what kind of mascara I'm using, I tend to use more than one coat and this one can keep going and going without clumping at all!

I've only used the sample packet so far but - mmm this stuff made my skin so smooth and soft and refreshed- It was not difficult to prepare in my opinion- you just find a bowl and add water! To find the consistancy, you just keep adding a small amount of water so you can apply it evenly on your face without it dripping off! I have sensitive skin and I did not have an adverse reaction at all, as I have with masks that were not so natural. I will definately buy this again.
Luv it. I'm on my second container of this stuff - It's natural and gentle to my sensitive/dry skin so I'm not afraid to use it all the time (as I have been with other exfoliators). I do notice the small amount of oil residue immediately after rinsing, but within minutes my face feels quite un-oily actually, as if my skin just craved to soak that all in! Good stuff, natural ingredients leave me glowin' and a tiny finger-scoop of this stuff goes a long way.
