Eye Shadow -Smashbox - Eye Shadow Quad in Modella-Tokidoki LE

The packaging is cute, with lovely little stars and a cute angel on the mirror, the colors are pretty, sheer, and blend very well, but the colors themselves are too light to be worn alone
Like the other reviews said, the product does seem to dry out my lips, unlike every other smashbox lipgloss i own (this might be because I bought this tube off ebay though) The color itself is amazing, and I don't think it's as bright as everyone seems to think it is, though I don't use a lot of this stuff at once. I love the little brush applicator, as I tend to prefer brushes over sponges, and the packaging is super cute. I would buy this again simply because of the lovely color and cute packaging, though I definitely wouldn't use this stuff every day
I like the way this brush cleaner leaves my brushes feeling soft and conditioned, but I wish that it cleaned a little better. It lakes a while for me to get my brushes clean with this stuff, so I'm not sure if I will be buying this again
This product is amazing! i love this stuff! It SMELLS LIKE ROSES... it gives a very soft pink flush with just a bit of sparkle, which i think works beautifully with my light skin. I will admit that it doesn't add too much color to your face, but is very natural looking, despite the "sparkle" that seems to be in the product and that the packaging, and it makes a great powder to layer over other blushes to help with blending. The packaging, although cute...doesn't seem very portable...though I have managed to take it on a couple of trips without too many problems. ( I don't imagine it would last all that well in a purse though) I also find that it's a little difficult to fit a bigger brush into the container to use it, but I love this powder so much that it still gets a 4 from me, and I'll still probably rebuy this if I ever run out and they're still making this :3

This is a great waterproofer/smudgeproof solution to most makeup. The trick to using this is the use the little nail polish brush that the product came with to lightly coat one of the little set of brushes and then using those to apply the product. Direct application of this product using the brush will result in stickyness. The downsides to this product are that: 1. It takes a REALLY long time to dry...though I found that this was easily remedied by blasting it with a blowdryer for 5 seconds or so. 2. It seems to make my eyeshadow/liner less vibrant in color. 3. I feel eye irritation occasionally. 4. It can get sticky if too much is applied The coolest thing about this product is that by coating the small eyeliner brush with the product and swiping it a few times across any eyeshadow shade will result in a handy liquid eyeliner in any color you want.
Eyeliner -Smashbox - best of cream eyeliner palette

IF you are a huge fan of Smashbox's cream eyeliners, then you will love this palette. It comes with 10 colors with a tiny, easy to use brush. The case itself is small and card sized, and very portable. Most of the colors, with the exception of the bronze shade, looked very similar when applied...they were all blackish, which makes them all wearable, but kind of boring. I used to keep one of these in my purse at all times, and have used for months without even coming close to running out. Ultimately, it fell out of my purse and melted in my car, but I did repurchase this, only to swap it away. I realized that even with UDPP, the eyeliners have a tendency to smudge/dissapear as the day goes on...so I have to change my review and say that I would not buy this again.
Treatments -Joico - k-pak deep penetrating reconstructor

This product works best when combined with a shampoo like joico's chelating shampoo that removes residues from your hair before you use it. It is not, however, a conditioner, and will not condition your hair, though it does repair damage. IT also is not for everyday use. I don't really like the smell of the stuff though since it smells like old bananas.
I absolutely this shampoo when combined with the rest of joico's 17 minute hair repair system. Used every 1-2 weeks along with the ph balancer, the hair reconstructor and the intense hydrator,my hair becomes amazingly shiny healthy looking after using this product.
Conditioner -Joico - K-Pak Reconstruct Daily Conditioner

This conditioner is not heavy enough...I feel like my hair is dry and frizzy after use if i rinse for longer than 1 minute. edit:upped it to three lippies because I don't have any problems with it now that winter is over. It definitely doesn't work for me in the winter in Southern California's dry weather
