Conditioner -Infusium 23 - Moisturizing Revitalizing Condition
PISALISA 4/29/2012 6:36:00 PM
This is by far the best conditioner for dry and course hair. I've tried every deep conditioner on the market but I always end up coming back to Infusium. My hair feels so silky smooth and tangle free after using this conditioner. The smell is amazing and lasts for a long time. To me, it smells a little bit like the Curious perfume by Britney Spears. I get compliments on my hair all the time!
Fragrances -Stella McCartney - Stella- Eau de Parfum
PISALISA 4/26/2012 6:36:00 PM
Stella is the most beautiful rose scent ever. At first spritz, it smells like fresh, wet roses. Then the magic starts...almost like the rose is wilting and becoming deeper and darker. It's not an overly sweet rose scent at all. Definitly would be HG material if only it lasted longer. But I will buy it again and again!
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - The Porefessional

This is the best and only primer that I can use. It delivers, (as promised) a perfectly smooth complexion. My pores becomes invisible and my fine lines cease to exist. And believe it or not, my skin has had less breakouts than ever since I started using the Porefessional.
I have received more compliments on this fragrance than any other I have ever worn. It is truly a timeless classic. Very feminine, sweet but not cloying, soft yet demanding of attention. I love 5th Avenue with all my heart
Fragrances -Thierry Mugler - Alien Sunessence EDT Legere
PISALISA 4/23/2012 6:18:00 PM
This is a very nice (calmed down) version of Alien. I like to say that this is the Alien for people who hate Alien. It has a citrusy scent but maintains the warmth of the original. At first spray, I hated it. Then after about an hour, I couldn't stop sniffing myself. The scent mellowed out very nicely to a nice grapefruity amber aroma. I surprised myself by liking a Thierry Mugler fragrance. Lol
This can be a pleasant fragrance if applied very lightly. Another reviewer hit the nail on the head when she said it smells like Sand and Sable. Fortunately, I loved Sand and Sable when I was much younger. Juicy Couture can get a bit annoying after a bit because there is no dry down. It smells the same ALL DAY LONG. very strong fragrance but delightful if just wearing a spritz on the wrist.
Nothing compares to the fast dry and perfect finish of Seche Vite. It can be a bit of a pain in the rump because it goes on so thick but it ALWAYS delivers a perfect shiny finish in seconds.
Tinted Moisturizer -E.L.F. - Studio Tinted Moisturizer
PISALISA 4/20/2012 8:20:00 PM
I LOVE this tinted moisturizer! It looks so natural yet covers flaws effortlessly. The consistency of the product is very silky and smooth. The only thing that annoys me is that water instantly removes the pigment and leaves bare spots (so be careful drinking or brushing your teeth!) It comes in three shades which are basically light, medium & dark. I am a NC15 and can wear the medium. The color blends so easily that wearing a darker shade just adds a healthy glow without looking fake and orange.
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
PISALISA 4/20/2012 7:19:00 PM
This is a very good product if used with the right brush and applied with a light hand. The bronzer is a little intimidating at first because of how dark it is on the skin. BUT it is spectacular for contouring because it is not shimmery or orangey. The color is a nice chocolate brown. Be sure to blend very well or it can look like mud streaks. The blush is not the greatest. It is rather light and not very pigmented. The lasting power on the blush leaves much to be desired also. Overall, the bronzer is totally worth the $3.50. Do yourself a favor and practice practice practice with the bronzer if at first you don't like it. The color payoff is awesome with the correct application.
I've been using this liquid eyeliner for years. Sure, I've strayed from time to time just to try something new. I always come back to Wet n Wild. I mostly use black but the brown color is nice too. It gives a solid and opaque line without too much effort. The only thing I dislike about this eyeliner is that the bristles get a little wacky towards the end of the product. But, for $3.50, I can't really complain! I do NOT like the waterproof version. It flakes off and looks ridiculous within a couple hours. Overall, this is an amazing eyeliner!
Ahhhhh the memories of my teen and young adult years come flooding back when I think of Byblos. This was me signature scent when I was much younger. The freshness is unbeatable to this day. It reminds me of staying out past curfew on lazy summer nights and the warm breeze coming off of the river by my childhood home. Fresh, beautiful and understated. I always got compliments on my scent while wearing Byblos!
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - Taylor Swift Wonderstruck
PISALISA 4/17/2012 6:29:00 PM
I love this fragrance. It reminds me a little of Midnight Fantasy. The biggest difference between Midnight Fantasy and Wonderstruck is that Wonderstruck lacks the sickly sweet bakery undertones. That being said, I'm not big on warmer scents so this fragrance is my choice of the two. It's sparkly, fruity, fresh and young. What's not to like? Definitly going to be reaching for this fragrance a lot this summer!
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - Taylor Swift Wonderstruck

This fragrance reminds me of Fantasy Midnight. The only difference between the two is that Fantasy Midnight has a much warmer undertone than Wonderstuck. That being said, I'm not a huge fan of warm bakery scents so I like this scent much more than Fantasy Midnight. It has more of a sparkly fruity appeal and it is not headache inducing in the least. It's fun and fresh and young. I think I found my daytime summer fragrance for this year!
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - BeFine food skin care - Exfoliating Cleanser
PISALISA 4/16/2012 8:22:00 PM
Let me start by saying that this scrub is pretty heavy duty. It says it contains brown sugar but really it's more like scrubbing with rock candy. But I love it! It smooths and deflakes like no other exfoliator I've tried. Follow up with the daily moisturizer and your skin will be glowing!
I had such high hopes for Cha Cha Tint. I was a little hesitant to spend so much money on a blush, however, I did. And then I waited for it to arrive in the mail like a kid waiting for Christmas. The first time I tried it, I guess I was not fast enough with blending and it left orange splotches on my face. So, I scrubbed it off and decided to try again. Let me just say that this is truly a STAIN! It took FOREVER to get the orange blotches off my cheeks. Finally, I gave up and decided to try again the next day. The next morning I gave it a go again. I used super fast circular blending motions until it was evenly applied. The final result was just too unnatural looking for me. I think maybe it's just that it does not go well with my skin tone. I tried it on my 8 year old daughter just because she asked. It looked very cute on her...flawless. I think I should stick with pink and rosy tones. This product just made me look flat out ORANGE. But, with the right skin tone it looks amazing! **UPDATE!!! So I gave it another try using a Beauty Blender sponge. What a difference! It is such a beautiful air-brushed glowy coral! I received tons of compliments today!
