Conditioner -Charles Worthington - BIG HAIR - Full Volume

Totally made my hair look like crap. I used this on a day when I was going to wear my hair curly/wavy. It weighed down my hair and left it feeling very knotty. I actually had to rewash my hair with something else just to get this stuff out of my hair. Yuck yuck yuck.
I bought this product months ago and didn't like it. I have always had clear skin and I was looking to brighten it up a bit. I thought this toner caused pimples. Well, now I am 8 weeks pregnant and my skin has been a mess. I have had breakouts ever since I've been pregnant. It's been awful. My skin is like an oil slick and every day I was waking up to a fresh new red pimple. Well, I read something in one of my pregnancy books about trying a glycolic product to clear the skin and decided to whip this out. It works!! My skin is brighter and since I've started using it I haven't gotten any new pimples, and the marks on my skin from old breakouts are fading. I'm so happy now!
Cleansers -Olay - Hydrate and Cleanse Antioxidant Lathering Face Wash

I love this! This is a very gentle cleanser that removes all of my makeup and does not leave my skin feeling toght or dry. My skin is sensitive and it hasn't broken me out. This is the best cleanser that I have tried in a long time.
I love this! I got a sample with a Sephora order and fell in love right away. I normally loathe fruity fragrances but this one is a nice mix of fruity/oriental. I have been wearing it daily and I have gotten compliments on it. I am thinking of getting the men's version for DH for Christmas.
Eye Shadow -mark - I-Mark Custom Pick Eyeshadow - Java

This eyeshadow is one of my favorites!! It's a dark brown shade that looks amazing when I wear neutral or tan shadows. I use it in the crease and as a liner. It has great pigment and goes on silky smooth. he price cannot be beat! I have a whole palette full of Mark Shadows. I'm not a big Avon fan but the Mark shadows are pretty nice.
My first reaction when I opened the box was that this color was not going to work for me. It looks like a gold shade with a tiny hint of peach. Well, it looks great on! It looks like a nice peachy gold color on my face. The staying power is excellent and it does not bother my very sensitive skin. Pricey but worth it!
What is all the hype about? I regret giving into it for a $8 (a lot for DS mascara!!). It gives me major clumpy lashes and it wears under my eyes after being on for only a few hours. I tried it over and over but IMO this stuff does not work. The big wide tube also makes the application process a bit weird.
I love love love this palette!! I haven't bought a MAC palette in ages but this one was calling my name so loudly that I had to buy it! The colors have already been described so I will not bore you. Basically, with these 6 colors you can either get a creamy/bronze eye look or a silvery smokey look. The colors blend nicely and stay put on my lids all day with my UD PP underneath. Big rave from me!!
This is a deep dark black shade with a red shimmer/sheen running through it. I love it! It's so pretty when the light catches it. It dries fast on my nails and doesn't chip off right away.
Shampoo -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Balancing Shampoo

I try to buy this when it goes on sale, although I like it so much that I have paid full price for it before. This shampoo has a strong perfume scent, but I kind of like how the fragrance stays in my hair all day. I either straighten my hair or I wear it wavy/curly. Either way I wear it, this shampoo really helps keep my hair looking nice. My hair is fine, but I have a lot of it, and using this with the matching conditioner does not weigh down my hair. It adds just the right amount of moisture to keep it shiny and bouncy. I love it!
Blush -mark - Good Glowing Powder Blush -After Glow

OMG I love this blush!!! The color is a very pretty peachy shade that really brightens up my complexion. I like this even more than my NARS Orgasm. It stays put all day and looks really natural on. It give my cheeks a nice pop of healthy color. Love it!
I LOVE this polish!!! It is a beautiful deep dark eggplant color. It is perfect for the fall/winter months. It is matte and has no shimmer or sheen to it - which I like. It dries to a nice shine and stays put on my nails for a long while. Everyone should check out this shade. It looks a bit boring in the bottle but it looks amazing on!
Styling Products -mark - Curl Goddess Curling Mist
JGardella 10/20/2007 4:56:00 PM
I can't say that I love this - but it is okay. It seems to bring out a bit of curl, but it did leave my hair a bit crunchy - so next time I applied less. I have naturally wavy hair with some curls. I applied it to my hair when it was damp. I don't think I'll purchase it again, but I'll use up the rest of the bottle. I don't think it creates curls in straight hair, though - the bottle can be misleading.
I think this is part of the Halloween collection. It smells just like the real thing! It does a decent job of moisturizing my lips, although it does wear away a bit quickly for me. Overall, it was a pretty good buy for less than a buck.
I wish that I could say that I love this but I don't :(
It goes on okay the first two times but after that it kinds made my lashes clump together. Not only that, but the mascara would end up under my eyes at the end of the day. I love almost everything from Mark - this was the 1st product from the line that I did not care for at all.
