You have to really like jasmine in order to love this. I personally can't handle this at all it's too strong and it can be overpowering.
I like Buffy as a moisturizer but not for exfoliating. It has a nice scent and I really don't use it in the shower and that's how lush recommends to use Buffy. Also careful this literally melts in your hands and can leave you greasy but I love it.

I like this powder. It was the first translucent powder I've ever tried and I was happy with it. I'd put it on in the morning and at the end of the day my face was still matte. When I ran out of this product I went to Walmart to get another one and there wasn't any and Everytime I go there's never in stock so I haven't been able to use it anymore. I would definetly repurchase this though.
I actually like this liner I am always looking for good liners that last all day and I found that this one does! It's pretty cheap and you get more product than you would if you were buying MAC fluidline oh and this does not dry out at all and it's creamy smooth and you can layer it to get the opaqueness you want. I like it and will repurchase!

Wow this eyeliner is seriously for heavy liner junkies. This doesn't move it glides on very black and it has a matte finish. Everytime I go to the store to get another one they never have it in stock people must buy like 3 all at once or maybe even steal them. Funny how many say this dried out completely, the secret is keep it tightly sealed mine dried out but I poked a hole on top of the dry area and inside was a very creamy liner so I made sure to check it everyday so it would dry out. And I finished it with out any problems. Now this eyeliner scares me because it's so pigmented and if you mess up that's it you gotta start all over again because this liner is so hard to remove not even make up remover worked to be honest I don't know what I even used to clean it off at night sometimes I would just sleep in it because it's such a hassle to remove. Other than that it's a great product I recommend it to every eyeliner addict out there truste it's even better than Mac fluidline.
When I first tried this shadow I was upset because the color payoff sucked so I didn't bother using it anymore. Then one day for my birthday I did a neutral eye shadow look. With a little bit of brown shading in the crease and mylar in the brow bone and all over the lid. When it was time for pictures I did not think anything would be wrong. Boy was I wrong the camera flashed picked up Mylar so good that it looked like I had two white circles on my eyes it was so embarrassing to have looked like that. Anyway will not repurchase again and two points for being well pigmented and captured on camera because in regular lighting it's no good!
Frankly Scarlet is so pretty in the pan. It's very bright red but all you need is a light hand and any old brush will do the trick. The best part is that you can apply it to build the color up to your liking. At first it can be pretty intimidating to wear such a bright red but really the results can range from subtle to dramatic and not in the best way either! Oh and the matte finish is amazing I like it but I won't be repurchasing because even though I've had mine for nearly two years it still looks brand new.
This blush is okay nothing special. It looks a little muddy on my skin which I hate that. I don't know if it's just my sunbasque but mine is very dusty no joke. I will not be repurchasing.
I have a love hate relationship with this foundation. I first tried this out when the sales lady was trying to figure out why MAC foundations oxidized so bad on me. She asked me if I was Indian and told me Indian women have oily skin. I looked at her stupid (and as a cosmetologist I've worked in esthetics and know my skin types and many people of all ethnicities have oily skin) I told her I'm of Latin background and she told me foundation shouldn't oxidize on me so fast. She literally tried all foundations until she had two left Matchmaster and Studio Sculpt. When she tried matchmaster it was way too dark I hated it and it oxidized but not as bad as other foundations and the Studio Sculpt in NC20 it barely oxidized and it looked good so I couldn't make up my mind and the lady gave samples to try out and let me tell you that little container with studio sculpt lasted me a month and a half you really don't need much to begin with. I went back and bought the full size and the NC20 matches my skin perfectly the finish is beautiful as well it looks very semi matte and on me it's a medium coverage. It photographs okay I did notice it left a whitish cast on my face and after raving about this product I noticed my skin started dry out a lot I just didn't think too much of it. Then I started to notice it just sat on top of skin and made my pores so noticeable and my dry patches stood out so i stopped using this foundation and I started to hate it. I recently gave it another shot and liked it again it lasts all day doesn't shine at all. I hate the application how it just sits on top not even fix+ helps with that issue. Would I repurchase again? To be honest I really don't know maybe I will.
This is the only high end mascara that I'm willing to pay full price for no lie! I am one of those people who believe mascara is not worth spending over $10 dollars for but for this I will. It's not my HG but it's up there with my faves. This mascara has a good brush it defines lengthens and gives volume all at the same time no other mascara can do that besides my other secret weapon!
The colors in this pallette are awesome and the price was good for $10 you get four eyeshadows and a convertible color that is good for cheeks and lips. I dont really use the cream in here much because eyeshadow dust accumulated in it which is gross. Otherwise the eyeshadows rock my favorite color in here is Sake which I hit pan on already and if anybody knows of a dupe for sake PLEASE let me know! Sakura I like too and shibuya I love I don't really use peace sign much just because I have do many blacks but I guess I will start using it soon now that I'm running out of sake!
I had this horrible yellow tinge in my blonde hair that I couldn't get rid of so one day I'm at Sally and I had been eyeing this permanent color for a while and wondered what it would turn out like if I used it as a toner? So I picked a tube up and 10 volume peroxide. I waited til my next bleaching and trim too do it I waited a few days and I finally did it I left it on for about 1hr and I rinsed it with silver shampoo man I looked at myself I was like wtf my hair is violet gray. I sucked it up and three days later I washed it my hair was the prettiest white blonde ever omg I started using this with my platinum routine I had the best hair ever!
My mom suggested this to me when she was working as a cosmetologist and brought me a huge bottle of the stuff I swear it was like a liter. I would use this as a wash and leave it in for about 20-30 mins. with a cap over my head in between toning and bleaching. I would then rinse it out and my hair would end up with violet tinge to it and silvery but to bad it was temporary. If I ever go back to blonde I would and will defenitly repurchase this!
This toner was awesome when I had platinum hair I would bleach it out wash with Regis silver shampoo mixed with John Freida blonde shampoo in the champagne color. I would wait a day or two before I applied the white lady. So what I would do was tone it first with wella frosty ash and that would leave my hair frosty gray (oh and remember to put it with a 10 developer because youre trying to deposit color not lift it) so I would wait another 2 days then I would apply this toner on with a 10 developer. My hair would end up purplish ashy gray and after that washed out I had the nicest shade of platinum hair very nice and white!

I actually quite like this shampoo I also have the conditioner that goes along with it! Smells nice smoothed my dry ends cleaned up all the product build up I had on my hair. As a professional hair dresser I would recommend this I don't know why so many bad reviews,when there's tons of high end products that are worse and made with inferior ingredients and priced ridiculously high. I like it and just because it's on the low end doesn't mean it's bad most people don't realize they have damage and blame it on the products. I will be repurchasing!
