Foundations -Cover Girl - Natureluxe Liquid Silk Foundation
SkyAlternative 10/21/2011 1:14:00 AM
After doing some finagling with coupons, I only got this for $3. I'm glad I didn't dish out the full price for this. This product is very medicore. The coverage is not very well. It feels silky smooth when you have it on a sponge/your fingers but once you begin to blend it dries up. Didn't last as long as I thought it should. Only has SPF 10 which is not really helping anyone. Would not buy again.
I bought two different colors and had two different experiences. I have to give this product only 2 because one gloss was great while the other was awful. FIRST one I bought was Sandstone. It was awful. TOO much thick glitter made me look cheap. Without the glitter it would have been awesome. Dried out my lips too much. I would have NEVER bought this product if I knew how much thick glitter specks are in it. You CANNOT tell by looking at the tube from the outside that it has thick glitter. Second one was Tulip (the one Taylor swift wears in the ads) and it was great. Silky smooth and color was lovely. Would I buy again? I'm going to put no because when I went back to the drugstore I noticed that most of the colors have that nasty glitter in it. I liked the Tulip color but I don't think I'll buy again.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational High Shine
SkyAlternative 10/21/2011 12:59:00 AM
I'm on the fence with this product. It's okay but the formula in the ads makes it seem like the formula is a silky more smooth formula. The lip stick was thick and had too much thick glitter. I mean I love shimmer but not when the flecks are so big it's obvious is glitter. I had to apply lip balm because the product itself felt dry on my lips. Overall a disappointment. Won't buy again.
This is one of the better mascaras I've used from maybelline. Not the best EVER, though. This is my review of Falsies black drama in black waterproof. First, I am NOT a fan of the regular falsies. It was awful. So you may wonder why I even bought this product. Well it was on sale and I had a coupon so it was only like $3.00 :) PROS: Doesn't clump (as long as you whipe off the excess product) HOLDS curl long. Doesn't flake or smudge. Cons: Does add some good volume but not as much as I'd like. MAJOR con is why I took off one lippie- the formula is very wet and when I first opened the tube there was a LOT of excess product on the wand. I had to take some off with a tissue. Because of this- if you apply it without whiping off it will clump. Overall I felt it was much better than the regular falsies. Would I buy this product again? Sure. I still do want to try more new mascaras. Once I'm done with this I will likely try Falsies Flared.
*THIS IS FOR THE FORMULA WITH THE WONDERFUL ARGAN OIL* I love this product. Argan oil is my go to hair product but finding a drugstore product that contains a decent amount is hard. Many drugstores carry products that only contain a small amount of argan oil but a bunch of other random ingredients. This product has argan oil listed as the THIRD ingrident. I was shocked at that AND the price- $5-6. It's crazy because some drugstore products have argan oil products for around $7-10!!! And those products only have a small amount! I am NOT a fan of the shampoo and conditioner that go with this product. Using all 3 was okay but I had MUCH better results by using a different shampoo + condition with this serum. Honestly, I'd say use a different shampoo and conditioner- whatever is your favorite. This product with argan oil makes my hair silky and smooth. And it keeps my hair soft between showers (i shower every other day to not dry out skin and hair) so that is a huge plus. Another plus is that, unlike other serums, you can add this to dry hair and it makes it soft and shiny. MANY serums claim that you can use them on dry hair but when you do it makes your hair weighed down and tangly. Not this product! Wet or dry, it's great. I was NOT a fan of the original formula of this but I love it now that it added argan oil. It's a HUGE step up and of course I will buy again!
Not good enough for the ridiculously high price. It's an okay mascara but it clumps when I use it and does not hold curl. Volumizing is okay but drugstore brands like Loreal Voluminous do it better for less. Will not buy again. The package is nice and classic looking but that's all it has going for it.
I found this product in my sisters drawer and have been using it. I can't tell how long she's had the product but it seems EXTREMLEY wet and I have no idea if that's because she dropped it in water or something. It just seems oddly wet like I've never seen in a mascara. Anyway, it DOES do a good job of keeping the curl which I like. But it is way too wet and I really hope that this is not how the mascara is. Would I buy again? Yes, hopefully less wet or damaged as this one. Get's 3 lippies but I may edit once I buy a fresh tube. See how that goes.
This product was awful. Dried out my skin, no buildable qualities. In some parts of my skin were darker than others. Didn't match skin tone at all. Made skin look dry and blotchy. WAY too expensive for a medicore product, will never buy this or any type of skin matching product again. Would give it ZERO lippies if I could. Only plus is SPF.
I'm on the fence with this product- get's 3 lippies from me. Packaging is alright, honestly looks like a cheap dollar store mascara packaging that tries to look expensive. Despite on of the perks being a thing that makes sure no excess product get's on, I found their to STILL be quite a bit of product on the brush. This sometimes caused clumping. The brush itself it very huge. Held curl alright. Flakes after a few hours, major downside. This product costs too much for my budget so I won't buy again. It costs around $8-10 bucks depending on where you get it. I suggest you get some coupons for it.
I give this product 4 lippies. PROS Doesn't clump Doesn't flake Not a lot of product on the brush CUTE package Price is pretty good, around $5 (less if on sale or you have a coupon) CONS Doesn't hold curl (though this is expected as that's not the specialty of this particular product) Could do better with giving "lot's of lashes" This product is ten times better than the standard great lash which did NOTHING for me when I used it. Would buy this product again.
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub
SkyAlternative 5/4/2011 10:44:00 PM
This is by far the best drugstore cleasner I've used. I WISH the stores would stock it more. It always seem they are out of this scrub and it's no wonder, it works well. I changed my cleanser a few weeks ago because I could not find this in the store. I was also using a foundation that is known for clogging pores(i didn't know this at the time). Well, I ended up breaking out like crazy. I found and place that had this in stock and my skin is beginning to clear up fantastically! Love this product. It doesn't clear my skin 100%. I'd say around 90%- but that is so much better than others I've used.
Liquid -Neutrogena - Skin Clearing Oil-Free Makeup
SkyAlternative 5/3/2011 12:32:00 AM
Very costly. Even with a $3 off coupon. So I purchased this product because the previous foundation I brought clogged my pores and made me breakout like nobody's business. In general, this was very mediocre. I hate the way it finishes. My skin looked very dry. Coverage was very light and you can still see acne show through. Not a good product if you have a lot of acne and you're trying to cover it. It promises to improve skin and clear it, but it didn't do it. Not worth the price in my opinion. Probably won't buy again
Conditioner -Organix - Moroccan Argan Oil Renewing Treatment
SkyAlternative 5/3/2011 12:26:00 AM
Unlike the shampoo and conditioner that goes with this product, this oil is great! I love using morrocan argan oil on my hair. There are many drugstore brands who sell products that include argan oil but are not 100%. 100% Morrocan Argan Oil is quite costly so if you want a cheap brand with similar results, try something like this. I like this product and this is one of only TWO argan oil brands I will reccomenend. I cannot give this a full 5 lippies due to the fact that unlike the other drugstore brand I try, this stuff does not leave my hair soft past a day or so. It makes my hair silky and look heathly, defintley. Just doesn't last as long. Absords quickly. Very runny, so be careful when you tip the bottle. Would buy again of course, if my choice brand was not avalible.
One of the best hair colors for a good price! I wouldn't say this is THE best brand, there are definitley others that are better but this one deserves props. This brand is the first brand I used when I wanted to color my hair. Gave great color and didn't fade too fast. Only flaw is the conditioner packet is so small. Wish it were a tube like other hair colors.
Hair Color -L'Oreal - Healthy Look Creme Gloss Color

Didn't have a very good experience with this product. Color was okay but it didn't give my hair the gloss look it promises.
