I'm not a fan of Redken products, and this product is where it started. I used this a while ago, & it never did anything for my hair. It made it poofy & dull. This doesn't help with blowdrying/flat ironing at all. I've used way better products from Walmart. Don't waste your money on this. It also smells weird, like chemicals. I will never buy this again.
I used this eyeliner back in the day. I had it in jet black. This is cheap & you can get it at walmart. I used this when I was younger (before really knowing about make up). For as cheap as this is, I still keep one of these in my makeup bag for back up, just in case. I don't use this as my usual eyeliner, because the staying power isn't that good. But, for the price it's not as bad as I would expect. This is a great eyeliner for younger girls that don't need to be wearing a lot of makeup. The color of this isn't as intense as higher end eyeliners, which would be another reason it would be good for the younger girls. For me, I'm at the point where I can afford to spend $18 on an eyeliner from Urban Decay, but for people on a budget this is a great alternative. I occasionally still use this eyeliner, but this isn't my go to. & I will admit, I still do use makeup from Walmart:)
I've been using the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners for a while now, & I've been sharpening them with my usual sharpener. I noticed I was wasting a lot of the eyeliner because of the sharpener I was using. Although my sharpener was good, it wasn't good for Urban Decay's pencils. I finally bought the Urban Decay Grindhouse sharpener, for $10...which is kind of ridiculous. I actually ended up getting 2 extra ones for free, so now I have 3. This sharpener works well with the Urban Decay eyeliners. I don't waste as much eyeliner as before. & as most people know, UD's eyeliners are expensive...$18 each. So you really want to make sure you don't waste that. Overall, I would reccommend this sharpener for UD eyeliners. I really haven't tried sharpening any other pencils with this sharpener, but I'm sure it still works well for other pencils.
Styling Products -Garnier - Fructis Sleek and Shine Weightless Anti-Frizz Serum

This product didn't do anything. Didn't keep frizz away & it made my hair oily/greasy. Never buying another Garnier Fructis product again, I hate this whole line.
Styling Products -Garnier - Fructis Style - Smoothing Milk
italiana800 1/29/2012 11:06:00 PM
I hate Garnier Fructis products. They will ruin your hair with continued use, I know from experience. This product was no different. Didn't help with frizz at all & definitely didn't make my hair smoother. It didn't really do anything except cause extreme hair loss, just like all the other products from this line (including the shampoo/conditioner). I will never buy, let alone touch another Garnier product again. I do not reccommend anything from this line.
Mascara -Jemma Kidd Makeup School - Ultra Plush Volumizing Mascara
italiana800 1/29/2012 10:22:00 PM
This mascara is just alright, really nothing special. It made my lashes stiff, but the mascara didn't flake...so I guess that counts as good & bad, depending on how you look at it. The formula is very wet & does take a while to dry, longer than I'd like...but then again, most things don't happen the way we'd like. It didn't really add length, but it volumized fairly well & was pretty buildable for the most part. I didn't like that this mascara made my lashes stick together. I liked the brush & I found it to be very effective. This does smell really bad, like chemicals. The color was great, but then again, I've never really had a problem with mascaras not being black enough. I love the bottle it comes in, very classy. But, it should come with more mascara than what was actually in there....especially for the price. The bottle also dried out pretty fast. I bought this at Target & I can't remember how much I paid, but it was expensive. Overall, I've used better mascaras for cheaper, so I probably won't buy this again. It definitely wasn't the worst mascara I've ever used, but not the best either.
I love this hairspray! It holds my hair in place very well. It's sticky & kind of messy, but I still love it. It also adds incredible shine to my hair. It does make your hair very hard, so I use this when I scrunch my hair. This is definitely not a flexible hold. If I'm not mistaken, I think this product may be discontinued. I haven't seen it in a while at any salons. I hope it isn't:/
Styling Products -Biosilk - Biosilk Shine on Spray
italiana800 1/26/2012 11:38:00 PM
I have to admit, I'm not a fan of the silk therapy oil, but I love this spray! When I'm done straightening my hair, I spray this all over my hair & it adds incredible shine. If you spray too much or too close to the roots, it will get greasy. When I want to add a little more shine in my hair after styling, this is my go to:) I would definitely repurchase.
Hair Removal -Unlisted Brand - Skintimate Shaving Gel
italiana800 1/26/2012 3:00:00 PM
I've been using this shaving cream for a long time. My favorite is strawberry tangerine twist. It's a gel that turns into a cream. It's very moisturizing & leaves my skin soft. The only thing I don't like is the amount of product you get. I run out of this shaving cream fast. I've used many other shaving creams, but none of them run out this fast. I can only use this for 3 showers, then I'm out & need to go buy more...it's ridiculous. If they did something about that, then I would give this a 5 out of 5:)
Other -Unlisted Brand - Arm & Hammer Baking Soda Whitening toothpaste
italiana800 1/26/2012 2:41:00 PM
I love this toothpaste! It has noticeably whitened my teeth & keeps my mouth fresh. I definitely started to notice a difference after a couple weeks of using this. It does taste weird at first, especially compared to sugary minty toothpastes. You get used to the taste after a while & I don't even think about it anymore. I highly reccommend this toothpaste:) I'm on my second tube, & I will buy it again:)
I used to use this foundation in high school. Everyone would always ask me what make up I used because it looked so flawless, yet natural. It never broke me out & was very light & not cakey. However, I did find it kind of hard to build it up to get better coverage. It felt very smooth going on my skin & it never looked orange. I have to agree with a previous reviewer that this foundation did emphasize on dry patches. This may be better for use in the summer when skin is more hydrated. I love the pump it comes with. I honestly don't really remember why I stopped using it. I would buy again:)
I hated this mascara. This just didn't work for me. Rubber mascara brushes don't work as well as normal fiber brushes, in my opinion. Besides that, the formula of the mascara itself dried up fast & flaked too easily. The only thing I liked was the mascara bottle was big, Covergirl gets some points for that. This gave absoloutley no length or volume, it just created a mess. I have naturally long eyelashes, & somehow this managed to make my eyelashes look short & stubby. I prefer L'oreal's mascaras over this. I will never buy again.
This was just alright, nothing special. It absorbed well & made my face a little greasy because of the spf. I didn't notice any significant improvements from this with evening out skin tone or correcting sun spots. I honestly just think it does the same thing as any sunscreen would do. It was alright at moisturizing. There are many better products out there than this. I wouldn't buy this again.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Love Spell-body spray
italiana800 1/26/2012 1:44:00 PM
I love this body mist! My cousin came to visit me & we went to Victoria's Secret in the mall. We were looking at all the different body sprays & she sprayed this one in the air....I fell in love. I've been using this ever since. It smells so fresh & fruity, not overpowering at all. It smells identical to this body spray that bath & body works used to sell, I forgot what it was called, but they discontinued it. So I was happy to find this. I will definitely repurchase:)
Lotions/ Creams -Victoria's Secret - Pure Seduction Hydrating Body Lotion
italiana800 1/26/2012 1:35:00 PM
This is my favorite lotion from Victoria's Secret. It smells absoloutley amazing, I never get tired of it. It's also very hydrating. If there were one lotion I would keep buying from Victoria's Secret, this would be it. I love it:)
