Ugh. I really don't like this stuff. Dries my skin out like nobody's business and is absolutely the worst to get out of the little tiny container. Especially the last 1/4 of the product. It just goes to waste. You can hardly spread it on you face. I guess you really can only use this for spot application but even at that it never blends...bad product over all.

This stuff is a GOD SEND. I've been buying this for years. I usually get 3-6 bottles at a time because nothing will substitute and I never want to be without especially with how much black eye make up I use. Nothing else gets my eye make up off as effortlessly. This doesn't burn at all. The texture feels like just regular water where as most removers feel like thick lotions or oils. I can't stand either. This will take off any and all make up not just around the eye.
Loose Powders -MAC - Iridescent Powder - Silver Dusk

Best lumanizing powder ever! I love it. Lots of tiny glitter great for highlighting. Product doesn't stay in container though.
This stuff really makes me loose faith in primers. I've never found one that works! This one like others just doesn't do anything for me. My pores are just as big. My foundation lasts the same amount of time (if not less). I have dry skin and less makes my skin look sooo shiny. I mean my skin's dull but, I don't need straight up grease. I'll go without primer before using this.

I'm not a big fan of primers in general but, I know I need one so I always go for cheap ones. This one doesn't really do anything.... All I noticed was that the product was super thick and didn't cover my face easily because of the thickness and density. I have a lot of redness around my nostrils and my under eye area is legit purple. All this did was make the purple look pink and the red even redder. I didn't notice any difference with my pores at all. So I have no idea what this crap does to be honest cause it just sat on my face in my opinion.
Well I used to love this mascara but, it is very dry and flakes a good amount. It gives a natural look and isn't as black as I'd like it. A cheaper route is Maybeline's new plush mascara. Which isn't as drying and gives the same look. Also doesn't flake. It's about 1/3 the cost.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush

Well this isn't as black as I'd like and doesn't enhance my eyelashes as much as I'd like but, I usually keep 2 mascaras at all times. 1 intense one for going out or just when I feel like it which is DIORSHOW BLACKOUT and 1 subtle one for my lazy days like for class or just laying around and this one replaces THE FALSIES for that. It gives the same look but, with way more definition. I just wish it added more volume and deposited more color.
The only thing to give moisture back to my extremely damaged hair. My favorite shampoo and conditoner.
My one and only must have hair product. Obviously I use others but I can't go a day without this taffy. I've used so many texturizing pastes, taffies, etc. and none compare! This smells sooooo good and gives perfect texture to my bright blonde pixie cut.
Conditioner -Paul Mitchell - Awapuhi Keratin Cream Rinse

God I love the packaging. I'm a big fan of black and simple packaging. Also this stuff smells AMAZING. But, I've got some serious damage. This didn't help at all. I'm a hair stylist so fortunately I got this stuff for super cheap. I'd never recommend it to my clients. I don't think any Paul Mitchell does what it says it does. The Awaphui line proved it for me

I'm a hairstylist so I use a lot of styling products. I bought this one on a whim. Hold sucks and doesn't add shine. Smells weird too.
Powder -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Medium [DISCONTINUED]
plasticbambi 5/20/2012 8:23:00 PM
Nothing compares. I absolutely love this product. Such a natural finish. I can't stand looking too matte with my olive skin because it makes me look like a zombie. I actually use light plus but there was no place for a review for that. This is a product I can recommend with absolute confidence. This is a staple in my daily skin routine even if I don't wear foundation I can use this on beach days or pool days and not worry about looking as blotchy and tired. Now it's not going to give you excellent coverage but, it does the job.
This is as pigmented as I'd like but, you can layer it (you have layer it a lot) and it'll pop. I wish I could find a true matte white....oh well....
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

This is my fall back mascara when I can't afford DiorShow. I love it its just not back enough for my taste. PROS thickens lengthens curls CONS dull clumps sometimes flakes towards the end of the day
This product is sooooo sticky but, oh do I love this color. This is probably the sexiest pale pink I've ever used.
