Wow, a product that can damage my hair and pouf it out all at once! This tangle balm dries quickly and maintains it's crunch for hours. If you want a long lasting bad hairday, look no further. If you want healthy hair -> nothing to see here.
Pricey, pricey but this stuff is so nourishing for your skin. It overall seems brighter, when I use this.I like the fact that its a blue cream for nighttime too!LIke the other reviewer I look forward to using this,skin is very dewey and radient when you put it on,then when you wake up it looks like you had the best sleep ever even if you did not. Update: A month later, still like it.Update again: 5 months later, still awesome.
Concealers -Exuviance - coverblend multifunction concealer

This coverblend concealer has a clinical sounding name,it's not for ordinary minor blemishes,it really for 'what the hell happened there' marks and pigmentations and scar.I have serious undereye circles and my skin is superfair white. This in Light is the first thing that have ever actually covered my dark circles so for that I give it 5 lippies,I am so impressed anything could cover them.However the finish is nice when you first put it one and then it looses momentum later in the day an you have to blend,blend,blend while it is wet, but it will cover just about anything! Update: Using this awhile and still like it, has a learning curve with how to apply it. I put my Lancome over this in a thing layer too cut the cakey chalkiness. Still the best I have used.

The best.The wand makes it easy to apply.I have taken my finger and smudged it and it doesn't even smudge then.Stays on for hours too.

This works so well for me. I love this pomade, no buildups, no silicones!, no flyaways, no frizz.My hair seems to feel better when I use this and it does give it a brillant glossy finish.If I know it has to be a good hair day I reach for this.If you have thick hair, buy this today,great control,great hold.Waited a month to post this to try it out with curls and when I blowdry striaght,it works awesome whatever I use it for. A true feat of modern engineering!

Suprise HG item! I have long,long hair and when it is super long, you just get concerned with : what can I do to keep it healthy and you don't have the energy to style it.But I got so bored with it that I have been creating styles here and there and didn't want to spend my cash on my usual brands (Matrix,Terex,Kiehls,Aveda) without knowing too much about what I want in a styling product.So I tried this out.Medium hold,no alcohol,nice light scent and no flaking no matter how much you over do it.Perfect product.UPDATE: About 1 month later and still working out great. No drying.
This is great nail polish overall.I had a pedicure stay on for months, it got ridiculous.I wore it till my toenails got too long.Staying power is great.This is the best (safest) nail polish for you too if you are preggers.The finish varies from shade to shade some dry brilliant others very flat, so check your color out first.
This is actually a review of the curlmaster 1875 hairdryer. I opened up my hair dryer and there is a little piece of paper attached to the cord.I almost through it out but I read it anyway.It said "This power cord contains lead which is found by the state of (inset your state here) to cause birth defects and reproductive harm" Doesn't sound good. Returning for a less toxic dryer
Moisturizers -Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer spf15

Well at this point about 150 people have reviewed this product and it seems to be about 50/50 on whose going to repurchase.I guess like it has been mentioned this is really good for a certain skin type. I have normal skin and it works really good for me.It has a nice finishing effect over makeup (glowy, not shiny) and the UVA/UVB protection is a good blend of ingredients.It has the avobenzoene in it. Maybe I'm not using enough though cause I'm still getting minor freckles going on though.For normal skin its great otherwise it seems like people are getting zits from the rest of the reviews.
This shampoo is great.Cleaning but not stripping. In fact it's one of the best I've seen for keeping haircolor (semi or permanent in).Also sometimes one shampoo stops working and you have to alternate, but you can go along time without alternating with this one, which is great cause I haven't found one that works as well.
I really like this one. Lip Lacquers (I have a few colors) is very pigmented gloss,it'll give you as much color as lipstick with a shine you can't get with lipstick. It's pricey but that pot can last forever. The babydoll color is a blue based pink. If you look good in blue based colors go for it.
