Conditioner -Organix - Moroccan Argan Oil Renewing Treatment

I've been trying to grow out my dry, frizzy, dyed hair so my sister gave me this to try. I've never done a mask or deep condition to my hair so I can't really compare this to others but I really do like this product, it doesn't leave my hair feeling oily but it does feel moisturized and the frizz has decreased dramatically. I did read the ingredients and it contains Jojoba oil so I added a couple more drops of my organic Jojoba oil to the mix and it made my hair soft, shinny, without frizz and very manageable. It smells really good and I don't have to use a lot of product, a little goes a long way with this stuff. I didn't wrap the towel around my head that's just a lot of work, I just left it on for a few minutes in the shower and rinsed off. My split ends are a little less noticeable and I'm hoping the frizz doesn't come back towards the end of the day. Cute little blue bottle :)
I love Pink Sugar! It smells amazing kinda like vanilla cupcakes with cotton candy! Guys seem to love it, some guy friend said I smelled like cookies and some other guy said it reminded him of cake frosting. I have a sweet tooth so I think it smells delicious on me. This perfume kinda lingers in clothes and pillows, I use it up fast I litteraly put it on every day. Its not too expensive, people are constantly asking me what I'm wearing. My fave!
This smells good, it kinda has this sexy fruity strong smell. It mixes well with me, smells like summer.
This smells so good, like flowers and summer! I used this when I was a kid and I always buy it for teen girls as gifts. Smells great and boys love it. Brings back memories!
I love this mascara, its one that I always have to have. It separates, defines, makes them extremely long and holds a curl. I always curl before and after mascara. Something about the brush that separates my eyelashes very well without clumping like other mascaras do. I have sensitive eyes and this doesn't irritate my eyes at all. It come off easily with water, no scrubbing no pulling. Amazing product.
I've been using this since I turned 15 and I still love it. It completely covers blemishes and scars, when I use this I don't bother using concealer. I always set this with powder and it last a long time. I do get oily after a couple of hours but that's normal with every other foundation. I'm really good at choosing the color, and Sandy Beige Medium 1 is my perfect color. For those that are freaking out about the Jojoba Oil, that's actually really good for your skin. It helps acne and diminishes acne scars, a lot of people use it as a moisturizer. Every skin type is different but just do your homework and figure out if its good for you. Back to the review on this foundation, I feel like I have perfect skin while wearing this. It doesnt make me break out, no irritation just smooth skin. I really like this product, its always in my make up bag.
Powder -Clinique - Perfectly Real Compact Powder Foundation

The case is so pretty! its like a jade color compact, and the box has the clinique flowers all over its really pretty. The product i think is amazing, what i really like about this stuff is how it comes out in pictures, perfectly natural! All my other foundations look white on pictures, or dont cover well but this stuff does the trick. Feels silky and smooth almost feels like nothing. It controls oil very well, just in all good product.
I really like this mascara it separates, volumizes and keeps a curl. it might be a little hard to remove but i love that i could go to the movies and cry and i know ill still look hot on my way out haha. The only reason i gave this a 4 is because it does tend to clump a bit but i just keep brushing it out with the brush and then it looks very defined and separated. I love the color on this its kinda like a silky black. I curl my lashes before and after and my curl last all day, and it makes my lower lashes look really good. I hate waterproof mascaras because they are impossible to remove even with make up remover, i hate seeing lashes coming off! But this stuff just comes off with warm water. Another thing is this make my lashes look really long! Love it!
Mascara -Unlisted Brand - Apple By Apple - Super Lash

I bought this when I was 13 and getting ready to go into High School and wanted something to make me feel older. I bought it at a local store with my allawonce money along with a huge bag of chips. This was my first mascara I had ever purchased and I didn't realize how great this product was. I thought all mascaras were supposed to curl, lenghten, volumize and separate at the same time just like this one. I used this for years and after a while I wanted to try out other brand name brands to compare. Wow the other mascaras just don't live up to the bar this little baby has put up. I have tried Tarte, Badgal Lash, Mac, Clinique (which is good), Estee Lauder, Maybelline, Cover girl, Loreal, Almay... The list goes on and some of them are good products but nothing compares to the Apple mascara that's 2 bucks! I make everyone believe I have wonderful naturaly curled and long lashes but nope its this product right here. I don't find it hard to remove at all, I use my Facial cleanser and it comes right off. The ability to hold a curl is better than any waterproof mascara I have tried, it doesn't clump and it doesn't flake. I love layering this with other mascaras and it still holds the curl. I actually find this product last longer than the high end brand, this can last me 6 months no problem where other brands last me 3, I hate bashing other mascaras but its true. I just love this mascara it holds a curl, volumizes, thickens them... This proves its not the wand but the formula. Buy this mascara!
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

I bought this thinking it would be the best product to hold a curl, and it did... and I liked it for about 2 weeks. Then the product became clumpy and dry (after just 2 weeks) and it was extremely hard to apply. It clumps like crazy so you don't wanna apply too many coats, and I learned the hard way it does flake! It flaked right into my eye. My eyelashes kinda started looking spiky, that's when I decided to stop using this product. You can't even use an eyelash comb because the mascara dries really fast. It is really hard to remove, I had to use 2 different waterproof make up removers, no joke, and a make up remover facial cleanser and I would still have a bit left. I don't want wrinkles around my eyes so I've stoped using this product. Another thing I noticed, I would find eyelashes on my make up remover pads regularly and my eyelashes are starting to look brittle, but I guess that happens with most waterproof mascaras. I made the mistake once of curling my eyelashes after applying this product and it felt like I was pulling on my eyelashes it was painful, word of advice do not curl after applying this mascara. I gave it a 2 because it holds a curl very well and hey some people like the extremely clumpy look, its just not for me.
So after having the Shu for a while and not being able to buy another one (they don't sell them anymore) and trying out the Tarte eyelash curler that broke on me within a month of using I wanted a good eyelash curler. I bought the MAC eyelash curler which is really good. It curls my lashes fast, I don't have to press and press on my lashes like the Maybelline I had. It curls easily without pressing too hard and without the need of a blow dryer. The mouth of the curler does take some getting used to, its small but now I'm used to it. I'm surprized this isn't that popular like the sheseido, its actually a really good curler!
Blush -Physicians Formula - Happy Booster™ Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in rose

This is a nice color, really pretty packaging. The hearts are so cute, even the useless little brush is cute! I liked this at first but it was too bright red for me. I used my own brush to apply. I also noticed I started braking out and this is the only new product I've been using. It has a bit of shimmer and a smell in it which can't be good for sensitive skin. Its really pretty to look at and I love that it comes with a miror but this isn't for me.
I'm used to wearing bright pink blushes and when I wanted something new I stopped by MAC to see what the makeup artist recomends. She put this on me, and at first I didn't really like it because she barely put any on but when she layerd it I loved it. Its a soft pink/peach color that doesn't make me look too made up. I actually like this better than my bright pink blushes that I loved, it goes really well with my skin. I gotta say this stays on for a long time and it never gets blotchy like other blushes, but that's just MAC quality. I love that this doesn't have shimmer, its just a matte looking blush making it look natural. Even my sister that's hates blushes is loving this!
I was walking by the MAC store one day and saw a beautiful MA with the most beautiful blush I've ever seen! I had to get the name of that blush so I ran to her and I asked, and she showed me this product. I bought it right away! She had beautiful tanned skin and this almost looked golden pink on her. I love this color, its light pink with golden tones, I've never seen this color before. I've learned that applying it with your fingers just messes with your foundation and looks a bit too shiny and bright pink, but when you apply this with a brush and blend it this creates a light pink blush with peachy or golden undertones, or at least that's how it looks on my tanned skin. If you blend it properly it doesn't look shiny it just looks dewy. A little goes a long way, I think this product is gonna last me a long while. It doesn't get blotchy like most blushes and that's even without primer. I have extremely oily skin and this still lasts on my skin. I always clean my brush after I use this though, with Sephoras Daily Anti-Bacterial spray because the bream can get goey on the brush. This is so worth it though!! I'm in love.
I have bought this product many times, it has become my favorite eyeliner. It is easy to use, and it last a really long time. It is safe for contact wearers which many high end products are not, or at least don't mention that they are. The tip makes it easy to draw a straight line, if you use it on its side its gonna look chuncky so you want to have the tip pointing at you. It creates the cutest wing, and its really easy to remove with just facial cleanser. It does burn a bit if you get it in the inner corners so you just gotta be careful. I even drew butterflies on the sides of my temples with this for halloween and it didn't smudge, the tip is like a little paint brush. Awesome stuff.
