Styling Products -Wen by Chaz Dean - Cucumber Aloe Styling Cream
sabrunka 11/7/2009 5:59:00 PM
Wow ok so normally I don't care about styling product other than hairspray because they never work... Well, this one works AMAZINGGGG!! I cleansed my hair with my cucumber aloe cleansing conditioner as usual and then added about a dime size amount of styling cream to the mid-shaft of my hair to the ends. I blow dried my hair (which is rare because when i do, it usually ends up frizzy and nasty) and it has a ton of volume and little to no frizzies.. And it is SO SOFT and I can run my fingers through so easily!! I am SO impressed with this product!!! My hair btw is very fine, has no volume, just above shoulder length, and gets oily quickly.
Gorgeous GORGEOUS colour!! Very sparkly copper brown, definitely buy it if you have a chance, it's a perfect year round colour! Covers completely with two coats, looks awesome! Lasts a long time on nails as well, definitely get this colour if you can, it is wonderful!
Concealers -Kevyn Aucoin - The Sensual Skin Enhancer

Wow this is definitely an excellent product, I took a tiny bit out thinking that it would be enough (from what other people have said) and it was STILL too much!! It is VERY pigmented and hides dark circles PERFECTLY!! It is DEFINITELY worth the price.. I can see this lasting up to 2 years even with daily use!
Wow.. I just received this in a swap and swiped it on my cheeks, blended it in and it looks FAB!! Just like a soft, sexy bronzed look!! I love love love it so much! I tried it on my lips and it looked sort of scary.. maybe it'll work on the eyes as well!! Just for reference, I'm NC25 in MAC foundations!
I love this moisturizer!! As an esthetician, I've tried out several brands and this is the one facial cream that I love!! I would say it is best for normal/combination skin (combination being either slightly dry or slight t-zone oil along with the normal skin). If you have really dry skin, you may need a stronger moisturizer.. If you have really oily skin, you may need a different moisturizer. But it is perfect for normal-near normal skin!
Scrubs -Dermalogica - AGE Smart multivitamin thermafoliant

Excellent exfoliator!! Even though it is in the age smart line, definitely try this if you are younger!! I am 19 and love how it makes me skin feel :) I've been using it twice a week and it is WONDERFUL! Honestly feels like a mini microdermabrasion!! I also love how it heats up on contact with water!
As soon as I tried a sample pack of the shower gel, I just HAD to buy the perfume!! It smells so delicious, just like candy and sugar and sweets :) Just one spray is enough!! More than one can be too sickly sweet, but over-all it's just delightful! I love it :) Yum!! I gave it only 4/5 because although it smells yummy, I like elegant smelling perfumes (burberry, dior) a bit better :).
Lipstick -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte Lipstick - #1 Nude Beige

Wow this is a GORGEOUS nude colour, looks so pretty!! It would look super sexy with a smokey eye.. Definitely buy it!! It goes on smooth and like a dream. All I can continue saying is "wow". YSL makes the most amazing products, period.
So I always used chemical dyes before this, and I just tried out henna today to see how it would work!! I got my hair chemically dyed about 2 weeks ago to a brown that was SUPPOSED to be dark but it faded A LOT... and I have a few blonde highlights in there as well, meaning I should've probably waited a tad longer before trying the henna.. But either way, I left it on for three hours and it made my light brown hair a tad darker with subtle red highlights!! It looks really good so far!! I have it half dry and half wet right now, but I can notice a difference and it made my hair soft as well!! It looks and feels super healthy! I used two squares out of the block which means I have two applications left over!! And for an 18$ block of henna, that would mean that one application cost me only 6$!! This is great stuff, you should try it!!
This self tanner is amazing. We use it at my school (I go to an esthetics school) and everyone just loves it!! It gives you a wonderful glow and doesn't look fake at all!! Even just applying it to your face makes you look refreshed and amazing. I don't find it watery at all, I actually think it's a perfect consistency, but to each their own! It is very expensive though, but if you can afford it, go for it!!

Shampoo -L'Oreal - Vive Pro Color Vive for regular hair

GOSH this was AWFUL!!! I bought it BEFORE reading reviews, and so I was really hoping it would work on my hair. Already, my hair gets greasy about a day and a half to two days after shampooing, but with this shampoo, my hair got greasy within a day OR LESS and looked WAY worse than it ever did when a day and a half or more passed... Hair was all stringy and nasty looking. On top of that, when my hair was done drying (air drying), it felt like wire... And my hair normally feels soft and nice after other shampoos that I use. All I know is that I'm sticking with using my moms biolage color care line from now on...
So far this product is working fairly well! It does seem to protect my hair and it also keeps it fairly straight throughout the day. The smell is sort of strange, but it passes after a while.
So far this seems to be working fairly well.. I LOVE the texture of it, and it doesn't make my hair greasy or oily at all!!! I haven't noticed too much of a difference yet, but if I do, I'll make sure to update.
Hair Styling Tools -Farouk CHI - Chi Ceramic Flat Iron by Farouk

It isn't the best straightener, it's just "okay". I expected it to work much better than the Solia I previously owned, but it didn't seem to be any better, maybe even a bit worse.... It DOES straighten but it just feels like my hair gets dry and kind of fuzzy... Oh well, it does its job!
