Medium coverage with one layer, it gets stars for tenacity. But the lightest shade oxidizes to orange and emphasizes pores and lines. I really wanted to like this based on all the great reviews :(
Soooo cool. Rainbows on your fingers! Like a glitter oil stain left in the rain. I usually don't go fo such bold, crazy colors, but this truely is holographic and just awesome. I can't stop looking at them. Opaque with just two coats as well. All of the shades from halo hues are like this, but this beige-ish one is my favorite.
Swapped this, it bubbled and seemed like it never dried! A whole day later, pressure on my nails would leave a dent. Just get seche vite and never look back!
Top/Base Coats -Orly - Orly Won't Chip- Polish Shield

Chips immediately. I tried everything: applying right away, applying while still tacky, applying after it dried. It chips on day one no matter what I do. To paraphrase the Comic Book Guy: "Worst. Topcoat. Ever."
Eye Primer -NARS - Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

Great primer, lasts all day, gives eyeshadow vibrancy but..... wait. It's even MORE expensive than UDPP? Save yourself $23. The elf eye primer is just as good as nars' and urban decay's. There is absolutely no justification for this ridiculous price unless you want to pay for the name.
This masque is great at calming down those big pustule pimples on my jawline, and it makes the rest of my face much softer and smoother. It has bentonite and kaolin to work at pimples and vitamin c from grapefruit extract which is great for skin. It stings just a little but after it dries it feels just fine. I use this once a week, maybe twice if things are really bad. A great, nutritious masque for such a low price.
So amazing, just like UDPP. I have this one in sheer. It lasts all day without creasing and gives shadows vibrancy. Such a good deal for $1!
Sickly sweet, slightly indolic, but very plain and flat. Kind of like cotton candy with a vague hint of rot. It actually reminded me of another celebrity scent- snookie's. It could have just as easily have been a paris hilton fragrance. I have little opinion of lady gaga one way or the other. I like that she's a very unique person in terms of style especially. But the same can't be said of her fragrance so I guess I was expecting a lot more.
Shampoo -Suave - Professionals Almond & Shea Butter

It's pretty good for a drugstore shampoo but it still leaves my hair kind of dry and my ends tangled. Not expensive at all, so good for the price and better than the rest of suave's shampoos.
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - One 'n Only - Argan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo

I used this in combination with the conditioner and the system is very moisturizing. It's a great alternative to moroccanoil, just look at the ingredients. My hair is straight and gets oily, so this is something I'd use once a week for extra moisture. If you have coarse or curly hair this would be a great staple for you, but my hair is too straight and gets too oily to use this on a daily basis. It's a good value too to get it in a gift set with the treatment oil and conditioner.
Awesome dry shampoo for the price. Gets rid of the grease, makes your hair feel silky. One star off for a white cast but it's only if you use a bit too much.
Excellent conditioner, my holy grail. it has lots of moisturizing palm oil and leaves my hair softer and smoother than anything else I've tried. Redken all soft comes in close second, but this is perfect.
Incredible shampoo. Holy grain material. I have never had softer, smoother hair and I honestly cannot think of a better product. Edit: If used every day I find that it gets too heavy and gives me slightly greasy roots so I am removing a star for that. I alternate with my redken all soft with no problems!
Conditioner -Matrix - Biolage Smooththerapie Deep Smoothing Conditioner

Good conditioner, it has lots of moisturizing palm oil as the third ingredient. Smooths the ends down well, as long as you don't use the awful smooththerapie shampoo. There are better conditioners out there for a similar price, so this only gets 3 stars. I'd try matrix sleek or redken all soft if you like this.
Shampoo -Matrix - Biolage Smooththerapie Deep Smoothing Shampoo

Terrible, I've never used a shampoo that left me greasy roots immediately upon my hair drying. It does smooth your hair down, which is why I gave it 2 instead of 1 star. But it leaves a waxy, greasy film all over your hair. If brushed, it looks very smooth, but if I touched or moved my hair, it would tangle instantly. Awful, expensive shampoo.
