Wearing it today with MSF in Warmed. Love it! Gives my skin (NC43) a nice glow. Proud to say I've hit pan on this one but I've had it for years :)
Conditioner -Aussie - Hair Insurance Leave In Conditioner

This is HG Status for me. I've gone through 2 bottles, on my third. I alternate between this and Mane n Tail detangler. I use this on clean wet hair, makes my tangles melt. Gives great slip, doesn't leave me sticky or weighed down. Don't mind the fragrance kinda coconutish yum! When I Bdry/Flatiron this is all I use most of the time. Fantastic product highly recommended for all hair types, esp thick coarse and curly.
I bought this in conjunction with the Therappe shampoo (a liter of each, nice pairing btw) and sadly I'm running pretty low. I use way more condish than poo so I guess that should be expected. Anyway, I really like this conditioner when I wear my hair curly. I get very defined curls that feel super moisturized and smooth. Slightly weighed down, but I don't mind since I'm wearing it curly. That being said, I do not like to use this before I flat-iron my hair. This is too heavy for a straight look...it does seem to weigh my hair down and leave a residue that does not work well with a flatiron. I tried it several times and hated the result (even after using a small amount of this and making sure I rinsed it out thoroughly), so I reserve this for when I wear my hair curly. I don't think this is good for thin/fine hair as it doesn't provide much volume/bounce. Coarse/curlies will appreciate this as a rich thick condish IMO.
I've had a liter of this for over a year and I use it often and still have so much left because a little goes a long way. This is one of the most moisturizing shampoo's I've ever tried. It lathers up nicely but after you rinse it out you can almost skip condish if you want. It smells like pineapple candy to me lol, quite tropical. I highly recommend this for people with thick curly & unruly hair that tangles easily because this will melt away the knots with one wash. I will absolutely repurchase when this runs out!
One of my favorite blushes of all time. Gorgeous for WOC...perfect amount of shimmer. This gives my NC43 skin a radiant peach glow. Love it!
Checking in for my darker complected ladies :).....NC43 and this is really pretty on me. It gives me a natural flushed look, not too bright but well pigmented. I like that its matte. Can't beat the price either! Overall I like this a lot and yes it does work on olive/dark skin.
*Sheds Tear* I love thi so much and I'm running out! I use this to line my lips and also my waterline (when I'm going for the big doe-eyed look). It's so creamy & perfect. I def need to repurchase soon. NC43 for ref.
Like it a lot. Gives me a great combo of length and volume. Took a Lippie off cause it flakes a little when I try to build it up but its okay cause my lashes look supper thick after applying one coat of this. This has held up well, I've had it for a while. (prob too long, I need to throw it out and repurchase.) pleased with the product, I like rimmel's mascaras

Perfect mix of peach/pink/gold for me, NC43. Wish it wasn't limited edition but I haven't used to much so I'm okay. I find myself reaching for this often. Good for WOC with yellow undertones!
I like this as a highlight rather than a blush. I like to put it high on my cheeks w/ my fingers or a flat bronzer brush. I used to wear it as a blush but I find that the flecks of glitter collect around the dry spots on my cheeks so I rather use it as a highlight. It's nice overall and it's lasted me forever without drying out. I've literally had this for 3+ years. NC43/44 for reference (:
Love it! This is universally flattering on all skin tones IMO. I'm an NC43/44 and I love Warmed, especially because I can wear it through the seasons. It does not make me look orange, just golden. Every time I see it in my stash I wonder y I don't use it more often! & it lasts forever! Too bad its LE but I'm sure u can find it on eBay.
I really like this foundation as it does wonders for dry skin. If you have oily you shouldn't even waste your time with this. I find this to be super moisturizing, blendable and the finish is very dewy. Initially I bought this in 320 which is an almost perfect match for my skin. It's a hair too dark for me so I went back and got 310. Now I mix the two together and it's perfect. I don't mind because I always mix my foundations together regardless of the brand. Maybelline FIT is light to medium coverage which I like because I have relatively clear skin with no scars or acne. I use this to even out my skin tone. At my riteaid they are $8.11 each which to me is a great price for drugstore foundation. The packaging is really cute but it would be that much better with a pump! & to me the fragrance is quite light and pleasant. Overall I would absolutely buy this again when I run out.
I'm wearing it right now! I'm conflicted because I really like this polish. First of all I love the name <3 It's very glossy and you can build up the intensity depending on how many coats you apply (I usually do 3 and sometimes I like to add a glittery topcoat). But it literally starts to crack and chip on me after a day, sometimes a night smh. The packaging is really cute though and I don't mind the brush. But I've used cheaper black nail polish that lasts longer. I do like the finish, but I won't repurchase when I run out.
I like this...I normally use it at night but after reading the reviews I might start using this in the morning and alternate between this and my EL Perfectionist Correcting Serum. I like really like FREC's packaging. I usually squeeze 2-3 drops underneath my eyes and gently pat. I don't think it really fades my fine lines but it does absorb quickly and provide a smooth finish for my concealer. It's not to be meant for the eyelid though so I avoid that area. Sometimes I dab a little on my forehead, where I tend to have dry patches and it saturates the area pretty well. & I use this before my moisturizer.

Oh this is so freaking gorgeous for WOC. I'm NC44 and this looks absolutely magical on my skin. I use this all over my face (right after I powder) for a radiant glow. By far I get the most complements when wearing this...My friends tell me I look like Cleopatra when I use this. A little goes a LONG way with this stuff so be careful or you will end up looking like a copper version of the Tin-Man. This is another product that lasts forever, I've probably had mine for two years and I have so much left. I usually don't wear this in the winter but it's gorgeous in New Jersey today (69 and Sunny in Feb?!?!?!?!?!) and I felt like I wanted to be bronzey. This reflects light beautifully especially in the summer! I do try to avoid dusting this on my T-zone. A little is OK since I never get oily anyway. Overall I love this and will completely restock when I run out :)
