Eyeliner -Tarte - EmphasEYES waterproof clay eye shadow & liner

I really like this product. I got it in black a sampler pack (I guess that's what you'd call it!) agt Ulta with some eye shadows and a lip stain. I bought it a while back so I don't remember all the details. :) I've taken up tightlining after a LM makeover and watching some YT videos. I don't normally use waterproof makeup, and didn't realize this was WP, but it washes off really easily. It lasts all day, and stays put. It works well for tightlining - for me - and love the way it makes my eyes pop. I would probably buy this again, but it's going to last me forever!
This is one of my favorite colors. I bought two tubes a long time ago at a little boutique in Wichita that closed. :( It's smooth, moisturizing and very pretty. It has just a touch of shimmer and is a very pretty plum. It has a sweet, choclatey scent. I can't find a link on their sight, but if you do a search for "TheBalm Read My Lips"it comes up. Weird. But I recommend it - very pretty!
This is my second NARS lippie purchase. I love this color - it has a bit more pop than my Damage, still good for daytime but I can see wearing at night also. It's my natural lip color with a little bang. NARS lips are so smooth and I love the way they make my lips feel. I highly recommend you go pick out a color today!
On the advice of my MUA homies, this was my first-ever NARS purchase. :) I now have a blush (Deep Throat) and a second lippie in Shrinagar. I was going for a tinted moisturizer but they were out of my color. :( I'm in love with their products and Damage. This color is a perfect daily for me. Plus, it's so smooth and moisturizing.

Along with the Full Splendor shampoo, these are my new go-to products. I love the scent, and for daily shampooing, it leave my hair clean, soft and easy to style. I highly recommend it for fine hair.

OMG - I love this stuff. Everything about it. The scent, what it does to my hair. When I use it, my DH spends the evening with his nose in my hair - he loves the way it smells. It does seem a bit drying (I use the condtioner in this line also) but once a week I use a treatment and my hair has been awesome. I'm trying some new things right now, but I have a feeling I'll be going back to this often.

This doesn't work for me. The scent is just nice but, while I realize it's a texturizing spray, it just made my hair nasty.
I can't believe no one has written a review just on this color. I think it's just beautiful - perfect for summer! I saw it for the first time today in Sephora, and had to buy it. It's a beautiful lavender with shimmery gold, but the shimmer is just that - there aren't huge flakes. I love the look of it, even after one application!
Tried this for the first time tonight - it's lovely! I love the creamy bubbles the "whipped" part creates, and the pink center smells pretty and light. Together they create an awesome pink, creamy, soft bath. My bathroom (and me!) still smell great!
Bath Treatments -LUSH - Dragon's Egg Bath Ballistic

This went in my basket the first time I ever got to shop at a LUSH store. It goes in every time I shop now. This is by far my favorite bomb - and have so many favorites from LUSH! The scent is by far my favorite - I'm a sucker for citrusy, orange-y scents - and the glitter is just some extra fun. I just recommend an SO or DH to clean the tub afterward. ;) That's probably my only complaint, but believe me it's not enough to make me stop using this one. Foe me, LUSH products are a little spendy, but for the most part worth the money. You can get cheap bombs at any Target/Walmart/etc, but they don't perform the way LUSH does.
Primer/ Corrector -Revlon - PhotoReady Perfecting Primer (color 001)

I hate when products work wonders but do bad things to my skin. This REALLY evens out my tone. I was shocked when I applied it the first time - it was my skin, but Photoshopped. That's what they should call this - Photoshop in a bottle. I'm very lucky to have pretty good skin, but it can use just a little help. This was the right amount of help. But after two days - I started breaking out. Damn! If you can get away with it, I'd say use this. It makes your skin look wonderful. It won't work for me, so I'll have it up for swap once I get my swap shop set up. :)
Conditioner -L'Oreal - EverPure Volume Conditioner

Same as the shampoo - I like this. I like the scent and how it makes may hair feel. It leaves it super soft and not at all weighed down. One of my gripes about this (and the shampoo) is the container - I HATE those tube containers and the way they get water under the cap. Small thing, I know but it annoys me. :) But it's not a deal-breaker - I'd buy this again.
I really like this shampoo. I use the conditioner too. I know the scent turns a lot of people off, but I like the way it smells. It leaves my hair soft and shiny and doesn't weight it down at all that I can tell. If defense of the gals who have said it's sulfate free, it DOES say sulfate free on the bottle - I'm no chemist so ... But I DO like this a lot.

I'm bummed about this product - it worked REALLY well on my hair gave me a TON of volume, but it makes my head itch! Some products to that to me - and it's usually the ones that actually work. :( I need to become an ingredient reader. I totally recommend this for fine-hair girls, but I won't be purchasing again. If it doesn't make you itch, I say go for it.
Styling Products -Organix - Renewing Moroccan Argan Penetrating Oil

This is an OK product foe me. It's a little heavy for my fine hair and I don't care for the scent. But it DID make my hair feel super soft. It's just a little much.
