LOVE this color. It's so summery and looks great with a summer tan. It's red on the orangey side, not blue. No shimmer at all.
I picked this up YEARS ago and just rediscovered it. It's VERY light, almost no actual color (atleast not on me) however I love to use it as a hilighter. It's cheap, easy to find, and gives me that extra glow I've been looking for.
I have oily sensitive skin. While this product managed to take off all my makeup, it irritated my skin. I can definately see this working for someone with less sensitive skin than myself. The only other downside is that it's a little less foaming than what I expected, but again as I said it removed all of my makeup.
Not bad for a DS conditioner. Moisturizes but it's not too heavy.
Primer/ Corrector -Revlon - Beyond Natural Smoothing Primer
Juliet7781 7/17/2009 1:49:00 PM
I'm surprised this got so many bad reviews. I picked this up at the drugstore because my current primer was not working with my oily skin. This is a pretty decent primer, and it's cheaper than what I'm used to spending. However, I will probably go back to my BE Prime Time when I run out. The only down side is that there is a fragrance, but once it's on the skin I don't really notice it after a few minutes. I'd buy this again if I run out of my BE primer and can't order one for a few days.
Primer/ Corrector -Korres - Silicone-Free Face Primer

I was looking for a good primer and was hoping this would work for me. Unfortunately it did not. I must state that I do have very oily skin though, so this may be suitable for dryer skin types. Normally my face would be oily later in the day, but this just made it oily sooner. The other thing that I was not impressed with was that it was the packaging, it's a screw on cap so I'm constantly chasing the cap if it falls, which is why I prefer a pump. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect primer...
Love this product. I love glosses but the problem is that some aren't moisturizing enough or the color is too much, etc. This is perfect. The color looks so natural. I will definately be buying this again.

My mom had this in her mu stash and I needed something quick so I put it on and fell in love. It's not sticky, and the color is wonderful on me. Needless to say I went out and bought it for myself!
Treatments -Redken - Blonde Glam Pure Pearl [DISCONTINUED]
Juliet7781 5/14/2008 11:23:00 AM
This is one of my weekly treatments that I love. It leaves my hair soft, and freshens my blonde hilights. Too bad it's the only thing I like about the Blonde Glam line (the Crystal Flash is not bad though).
Styling Products -Redken - Smooth Down Detangling Cream [DISCONTINUED]
Juliet7781 5/13/2008 9:30:00 AM
I usually use a spray detangler, then the smooth down heat glide. I like this product because it does both steps in one.
Eyeliner -Physicians Formula - Eye Definer- Automatic Eye Pencil
Juliet7781 5/13/2008 9:26:00 AM
I usually use Revlon's colorstay eyeliner in Charcoal, but when I ran out to get more the store didn't have that color in stock. I was desperate and I hate wearing black or brown, so I saw this product and decided to give it a try. I really do like it, but I took one lippie off because I've only used it for 2 days, and it's not terribly hot out yet, so I haven't had a chance to see how badly it runs or not. I will probably end up going back to the Revlon however just because I know that it doesn't run, but it's nice to have an alternative if they're out of stock again. EDIT: Ok well I definately won't be buying this again. The sharpener is the WORST I've ever used. I can't even sharpen it. Color is still nice, but it's not worth it if I can't even sharpen it.
Hair Styling Tools -Solano - HAI Convertable Flat Iron
Juliet7781 4/29/2008 12:57:00 PM
I have tried several different flat irons (including CHI) and this one has to be the best one I've ever used. My hair is thick, coarse and long and this smoothes it out perfectly. Yes, it's a little on the expensive side, but it's a professional product that delivers results. I don't know what I'd do without my HAI flat iron.
I got this as a sample from a gift set I got. I was pleasantly suprised. I am VERY picky and particular when it comes to scents. I tend to stay away from florals and things that are too powdery. However this stuff amazed me. I get compliments all the time on this fragrance. I will say that my Ralph Lauren Blue is still my number one fragrance, but this is what I go to when I want a day off from Blue. I'll purchase this when I run out of the sample.
I'm not sure how well this product whitens because I couldn't finish the whole box. Everytime I put on one of the strips my teeth would hurt. And sometimes it wouldn't be immediate, but I'd feel a "shock" to a tooth about 10 min into the application. I guess my teeth are just too sensitive for this stuff and I'll have to try another product =(
Styling Products -Got 2 Be - 2 Sexy Voluptuous Volume Hairspray
Juliet7781 4/29/2008 11:40:00 AM
Wow, I have to say I did not have a good experience with this spray. I got a free smaller sample size with the volumizing mousse I bought. This was WAY too firm of a hold. I sprayed it on my hair, tried to make certain pieces go certain ways and I couldn't because of how strong of a hold this stuff has. I'm more of a medium hold girl, and this stuff is definately not for me.
