I got the color corrector one. It's greenish yellow and takes all my redness away. I put foundation over it, but I could see just using this. I just blend it with my fingers. It has spf in it too.
Hair Color -Garnier - Nutrisse Permanent Creme Hair Color

I used this in Medium Golden Brown to cover up a weird Medium Auburn shade from another brand that didn't come out the way it should have. I called the hotline because my roots were starting to show (I have naturally medium brown hair with golden highlights already) and the woman was quick and helpful. She told me to follow the touch up method and I did. I couldn't be happier. It came out evenly and made the red in my hair die down a bit, but it's still reddish. It's a nice rich brown shade, but not too dark. I have pale skin and it doesn't wash me out. I gave it 4 lippies because it's really runny. I wish it was thicker. I love that you put the avocado, olive and shea oil stuff in the bottle with the color too. My hair isn't dried out or anything because of it. I was a little worried about it and using the whole packet of conditioner because I have oily/fine hair sometimes, but it made my hair shiny and soft. I recommend this product.
Meh. It's very runny, stung and smelled really harsh. My mother helped me. I've colored my own hair before, but this is so messy, I could never with this. I bought it in medium auburn (auburn flash) and thought I'd get a nice Emma Stone dark red like the box. I have naturally medium to almost dark brown hair (Like Natalie Portman's color, I guess) and this just made my hair brown still, but with alarmingly red highlights. I feel it deposited more at the roots. Took awhile to wash out too. I love the conditioner and my hair.is softer and shinier than before. I haven't washed it yet with shampoo, so maybe it will look more natural. I have a feeling this is gonna fade fast though. It wasn't enough of a change to my natural haircolor. I feel like I kinda wasted my time and money.
I would never spend $25 on nailpolish usually, but I had a gift certificate to a dept. store. So I figured this stuff would hold up. The color is gorgeous, sometimes looks gold, sometimes looks greenish. BUT, I wore this less than 1 day and it was already peeling on the tips of my nails. Like flaking off. So not worth the money.
Eyeliner -Jordana - Fabu Liner Liquid Eyeliner Pen

This is awesome. I'm an idiot with liquid liner, but not with this pen. I can do it really quickly before work. It doesn't dry out like other pens either and it's really cheap. I got it in a dark brown. Stays on.
I bought this because my sister started using it and in 2 weeks her lashes did look a lot longer. It gives really good length. Only apply one coat though- it will clump if you put more on. I didn't notice any smudging, and I usually do. I've only used it a few times, so I'll update in awhile. Great for sensitive eyes. I got Black Brown and I have dark lashes already and it was pretty dark.
Mascara -Almay - Intense i-Color Play Up Volumizing Mascara in Black Pearl

I love this. I was confused when I went to buy it because the package doesn't say volumizing and the brush is yellow not blue like the picture here! This volumizes, curls and lengthen my short, downward eyelashes. Without irritation and no smudging even though my eyes were weep because of a cold. Dries fast but doesn't rip out your lashes. So surprised it didn't run considering its not advertised as waterproof. Perfect for sensitive eyed gals. Love the plastic brush. I don't know why its for hazel eyes though and its not sparkly like the name suggests. Will buy again.
This was so flakey, burned my eyes and smudged. Dry and gross.
Mascara -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Mascara

I love this! I have never gotten so much length from a mascara in my life. I have sensitive eyes and no itching so far. I was scared there was bat poop in it, but no! I think the packaging is too plastic heavy and haved to open. Not very green.
This is the only mascara I have used that actually made a significant, visible change to my eyelashes. It did not only provide volume, but significant length. Didn't even have to use an eyelash curler. And it was pretty easy to get my little hiding eyelashes with it too. I have sensitive eyes and this didn't bother them. It also didn't smudge and make raccoon eyes like my other mascaras. My only problem (why I gave it a 4) is that it dries out pretty quickly (in my opinion). I don't wear makeup that often, but this dried out a bit and got a little clumpy. It's probably just me though. If you use mascara every day, try this out- you won't be disappointed.
I only gave this a 4 because sometimes it's too strong, but not as strong as Cashmere Mist. I only spray one puff on my wrist and it lasts all day- some rubbed off on the sleeve of my coat and I can still smell it two days later! It's in the same realm as the smell of Cashmere Mist but it smells more musky and sultry and less powdery. There's more notes in it like vanilla,musk and maybe some light fruitiness. The packaging could be a little better- I'm always afraid I'm going to break it and I don't like the butterfly top. It smells so good though! It's kind of vanilla-y but not foody. It's great for the colder months. The minute I smelled it on my friend I had to buy it- I was surprised it smelled just like it did on paper on me= usually perfumes smell awful on me. It's my favorite perfume.
I got a pedicure in this color- it's too shimmery and did not last at all. I can usually go weeks with color still on after a pedicure in the summer, but this is winter and it fell off!
This is the perfect fall color. It is a dark burnt red. It looks orangy in the bottle but it comes out darker.
I love this color but it's too dark to do yourself unless you're VERY careful. Very vampy- it's a dark blood red but kinda brownish too. Would look ridiculous on long nails but looks great on short nails for anyone with any color skin (i'm pale). Perfect fall color for either nails or toes. Put a basecoat on though-will prolly turn your nails yellow or red. I wish they put OPI in those tippy bottles instead- it would make life so much easier!
Great everyday shade. It's a little on the dark side for me but I don't wear makeup often. It's a great day to evening shade and the packaging is great with the sponge applicator. It's expensive, but at least it's for a cause (AIDS).
