Eye Shadow -Rimmel - Colour Rush Eyeshadow Quad, Smoky Noir
LilyMakeupEvan 1/6/2012 4:59:00 PM
OH GOD! I bought this in a whim searching for a smoky shadow. What a mistake! The colors are terrible and very very sheer. This makes my face look like dirt too. Save your money. Never going to buy Rimmel shadows again. Now I just use the black color to set my kohl. Check out my reviews on other products too and let me know if this review was helpful or not. :)
Lip Gloss -Nivea - Nivea Lipcare Caregloss and Shine
LilyMakeupEvan 1/6/2012 4:55:00 PM
I looove these glosses! They are super moisturizing and uber cheap! I have it in the pink version and its a beautiful sheer pink rose color. Perfeeecct! Definately give these a try. You can purchase them at the dollar stores. Have tried a lot of nivea lip stuff and these are by far one of the best. Would I repurchase? Yes! In the red version if I can.Only con is that I have noticed that this irritates the skin around my lips. Not a problem with me but if you have sensitive skin, Donot purchase!

So I have straight hair already and I was just looking for something to smooth it. After I bought this, I realised I didnt want to used heat on my hair atall and thus, this became just a smoothing cream. It really works. Even without heat, my hair was smooth and straight instead of 'poofy'. However, only two cons on this products. Im not happy that it doesnot give shine. Also, dont put it in your roots because then your volume will dissapear! If you want straight hair through blowdrying, this product is HG stuff! Im switching to Got2be Smooth lustre lotion, it adds shine and does the same job as this. Would I repurchase? Not really. but its a good product.

This is my review for the black one because MUA doesnot have a page for it atall. This has been my HG eyeliner for years. Its a pen twist up eyeliner and stay ons for hours at a go! Solid black too. Buy it the first chance you get, you wont regret. Check out my reviews on other eyeproducts too and let me know if you found this helpful. :)
This conditioner is amazing! My friend had introduced it to me and I thought of giving it a try. It spreads like butter in the shower and detangles my every hair strand. and thats a lot to say since my hair is long till my waist. Smells like heaven and moisturizes every time I shower and uber cheap too. Will repurchase again for sure!

Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences Hydralicious Featherweight shampoo
LilyMakeupEvan 1/5/2012 5:41:00 PM
Bleh, this stuff smells so fake that I already hated it without giving it a chance. I hate the smell of this shampoo and the similar smell of the volume mousses and hairsprays. Dont purchase if your looking for a good smell. Check out my reviews and let me know if this review was helpful or not. :)
This stuff changed my life! I get so much volume from this product and it really works. I know people hate the smell but I love it! Its like cologne almost. As hair professionals say, our hair can get 'immune' to hair products, so a complete restart is necesisary if you want to use the same shampoo/products forever and this does that! However please dont use more than once a week (I tried that) or else your hair will feel like straw. and make sure to use a good conditoner/mask after this. The picture shows a tiny bottle of 175mL which sells for about $8 CAN but I bought the 1Litre bottle for about $11 (Walmart). This stuff also lasts forever. Im estimating that my 1Litre wont be done until a good 5years, which is crazy, but yeah! Would I repurchase? Yeah. again and again.

Was not happy with this conditioner at first! It doesnot melt like butter and spread throught hair in the shower atall. Its like putting something thick on hair. hard to work with. However, it does condition hair and leave it smooth and I recently read its ingredients and its almost silicone free! Not to mention it has ceramite and keratin in it. Im beginning to like this conditioner as it doesnot wiegh my hair down and actually improves the health of my hair. Not a fan of the scent (smells like pantene products). Would I repurchase? Yeah, because it is not stuffed with silicones. Definately giving a try to other conditioners from this brand too.

Bronzers -Tarte - Matte Waterproof Mineral Powder Bronzer
LilyMakeupEvan 1/5/2012 5:14:00 PM
OHMY! This bronzer is amazing! I have tried many bronzers and always ended up looking 'dirty'. This bronzer has a slight glow to it but it is not shimmery atall so love it. It looks warm and not orangy atall. Try this is you are fair-biege colored. Might work on meduim skin too. Would I repurchase? Hell yeah!

Styling Products -Clairol - Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse
LilyMakeupEvan 1/5/2012 5:10:00 PM
I dont use this for scrunching as my hair doesnot scrunch whatsoever. But I put this on my damp hair before using my curling iron. Its decent and I love the smell. However, what i don't like is that there isn't alot of hold though. I like the gel of this line far better. Also this came out very watery when it was almost over. Would I repurchase? not really. Need something with more hold. Check out my reviews on other hair products too and let me know if this review was helpful or not.
Styling Products -TRESemme - Heat Defence Styling Spray
LilyMakeupEvan 1/5/2012 5:06:00 PM
This product is great and really doesnot wiegh down hair. The spray is wonderful for a non-aerosol product. I didnt see any great shine but whatever. It smells like heaven and gets the job done! However, the instructions state that it has to be applied in damp hair so I think this one is only for blowdrying! So Im switching to the other 'Heat Tamer' spray by Tresemme because that one is for flat irons, curling and blowdrying. Check out my review for that one. Smells different. Is just as good.

As far as volume goes, this is probably the best mousse I have tried. But, honestly, mousses wieght down hair and dont do much. My hair type is straight. I have heavy hair even thought its thin and its up till my belly button. This gives average lift and volume. If your a mousse type of person, this is for you. But if your really want wonderful volume, try spray gels or even root lifters. They work better and really hold.

Styling Products -Sally Hershberger - Supreme Lift
LilyMakeupEvan 1/5/2012 4:54:00 PM
This stuff would have been HG, had it not been for the price. This stuff is so darn expensive that I honestly wouldnt repurchase. As the product goes, its amazing! It gives a lot of lift and volume and thats a lot to say because I have tried many products with no results. If you can afford this tiny bottle, buy it. again. and again. its wow. One lippie off for the price. and the smell might offend some. It smells like lemons. Check out my reviews on other hair products too and let me know if this review was helpful or not.
Styling Products -Got 2 Be - Smooth Operator Smoothing Lustre Lotion
LilyMakeupEvan 1/5/2012 4:50:00 PM
OHMY! This is HG stuff! My hair is straight and a little wavy and deals with static more than anything. This stuff made my hair soo much straighter and softer! Eliminated static and added shine. Loved it! Im a serum user because for me shiny hair is my first priority and this is the first 'cream' that gives shine! Love it. Give it a try, this whole line is personally amazing. Plus the smell is to-die-for and the charms and packaging is irresistable.Would I repurchase? Hell yeah.

Have it in 'pink sugar'. Its just one of the glosses that you find lying around in your purse and can apply on. It applys on milky clear and gives that 'natural glassy' shine which is really cute. Lasts for about 15-20mins which I think is okay for a standard lip product like this one. The formulation is kind of thick which makes it difficult to apply without a mirror and is a little bit sticky, Also please dont apply this on dry chapped lips or it wont look nice! always moisturize with a proper lip product and then apply this gloss and you will be surprised! It is hydrating and protects lips. I bought the Nivea 'pink rose' care gloss and shine and loved that so much better though! No frostiness and super moisturizing compared to this! Would I repurchase? Not really because Nivea has more moisturizing stuff! plus the slant applicator is too tiny and product ends up collecting on the cap.
