This has the opposite effect of what it's supposed to do. It did not have the "moisture effect." I'm not buy this again
Shampoo -TRESemme - Vitamin E Moisture Rich Shampoo
Sayoko 2/22/2010 6:11:00 PM
Like the reviewer below me, bought this shampoo because my hair was incredibly dry, due to the hair relaxing process. Sometimes it gets a little dry and it needs some moisture. This shampoo had the exact opposite effect as it's claims of moisture . It made my hair even more dry,(I didn't think that was imaginable) even more course and tangles! after conditioning it using the moisture conditioner, some of the dryness went away but not by very much. I hate this honestly and I will not buy this again. Thank god I got this buy one get one half off!
Palettes -Urban Decay - Get Baked Palette [DISCONTINUED]
Sayoko 2/21/2010 11:28:00 PM
This is my first Urban Decay palette, and I must say, that I love it! On sale for $15? I thought that was a great deal. The colors are beautiful, and they work together so nicely! It also comes with a 24/7 liner (a new love) and the primer potion in Sin. The colours work really well together, they are super pigmented, and perfect for gorgeous summer eye looks. I thought the packaging was cute. I would definately buy this again
After watching the rave reviews on youtube, about these travel sets, I was really excited in picking up a brush set for myself. After testing them out for 2 weeks, I'm sad to say that these were somewhat of a disappointment. I didn't like the pleather packaging case it came in it had a very strong plastic like scent that took a while to go away. Now onto the brushes; the eye brushes were very good, the face brushes in the set? not so much. Despite the brushes being soft, the overall quality wasn't there. The 187 was free with the set thank goodness it was complimentary because it's the absolute worst brush after 12 washes the brush still bleeds, plus this thing sheds like crazy!, the 150 in the set? does the same thing it bled and shed a lot. I think I'm going to re-purchase mac brush roll, and travel with my full size brushes. These were not worth the $55 price tag. I wouldn't buy this again.
After seeing pictures of this brush several moths ago, I knew I had to have this brush! people have been comparing this to mac 188 brush, I would say this is more dense than the 188. It's more like the 109 and the 188 had a love child=130. This brush is great with cream foundation because it's dense, and the finish looks natural(I tried it with the mineralize satin foundation), also, I find that this works really well with cream blushes, personally I love this for the latter as I don't have a lot of time to apply a cream foundation especially in the morning, when using this to apply cream blush, the top is flat and densely packed together the results perfect! I'm considering getting a backup. This is supposed to be permanent like the 131 when it first came out, but they ended up discontinuing it
Blush -Make Up For Ever - Sculpting Blush 22 - Iridescent Orange Coral

MUFE sculpting blush 22 is a pinky coral coral that is perfect on all skintones. it looks bright in the pan, but it looks gorgeous on the skin. love it! this retails for $24 it's steep, but worth it. This is very similar to mac's joyous. I'll buy this again if I had to.
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - platinum professionel #41 brush
Sayoko 2/19/2010 2:47:00 AM
Soft, great for blending, right size for Bronzer and Powder on the face and/or body. this brush is very big and dense. I love it! It has natural goat hair very soft bristles; I use this to apply bronzers, mineralize skin finishes, and setting powder. I love the long handle for body work as well, very convenient the kabuki style handle can get tiring at times.. This brush is not for those who are not into big brushes. The only drawback to this is that it takes a while to dry because the brush is so full and dense. I did not experience shedding nor a funny odor after washing. I would buy this again if I needed to.
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Professionnel Platinum Air Brush #55
Sayoko 2/19/2010 1:27:00 AM
This is a wonderful brush! I have used it with good results with Revlon CS, MUFE HD, MUFE face and body, and NARS sheer glow foundation with excellent results I love the airbrushed look! witbrush h that being said, the one drawback that other reviewers have mentioned is the price ! it's a bit steep, luckily I got this at a discounted price. I would buy it again if I had to.
I'm suprised by the so so reviews on this..I'm a nail polish junkie, and I own a huge collection of nail polishes, opi essie, chanel, etc..salley hansen's lacquer shine in Lustrous is by far the best formulation of black polish formulations that I've ever seen on the market!. This is better than chanel's black satin, and OPI's version as well. This went on very smoothly, It's a blue-based black and it's completely, solidly, totally opaque in two fast-drying coats. I used this with seche vite base and top coat, and the results were superb it lasted 6 days before it started to chip!another thing I like was this had a lauqer finish compared to chanel's black satin's dull look after it dried I was so impressed with this, that I bought another bottle! I would definately buy this again. I read that some complained of the stain left behind, a good base coat like seche vite and there shouldn't be any problems.
After hearing rave reviews about Virgin Isle CCB on specktra, I decided to give it a try. At first glance its a shocking bright orange coral, but from experience, bright in the pan always looks great on the skin. I was lucky to get this at MAC pro recently, as I hear this is discontinued? I love the results!! I'd buy this again
Blush -MAC - Beauty Powder Blush in Tippy (Hello Kitty)
Sayoko 2/19/2010 12:12:00 AM
LOVE IT!!!!! great colour pay off young fresh youthful look. I was lucky to get this from the CCO at a great price!
hh another devine Beauty Powder Blush from MAC. I agree with other reviews that this formulation of beauty powder blushers are better than the permanent line I think these blushes are even better than their original blushes, much softer, and far more pigmented, . They leave a lovely velvety finish and are not too heavy on the shimmers. Joyous is a peachy pink I love the texture and the quality of this, I know this is discontinued and can still be found at CCOs. If one has a hard time finding this, MUFE beauty powder blush in no 22 is a very close dupe for this. I'd buy this again.
This is very pigmented! beautiful cool pink blush. I'm not usually a fan of beauty powder powder blushes, but I love this MAC did a great job with the formulation! I'd buy this again if I needed to.
It's a gorgeous intense peach color with golden undertones. It gives me a nice glow on the cheeks, very nice on NC50 skin. I'd buy this again
This isnt a bad foundation just not the best. I did notice the glitter ,not very good. I didn't like the fact that the colour range isn't as wide as the colour stay, which I love, I had to mix the two shades available for dark skin,(I'm nc50 for reference) the results on my face, not good this is 2010! I should not have to do that. I'll stick with colourstay until they get their act together. I'll give this one lippie for the packaging.
