Styling Products -Clairol - Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Scrunching Gel
JessKW 6/16/2007 5:57:00 PM
I have never tried a gel that was so curl enhancing, until I tried this. I have no frizz, and tons of soft curls. My hair is more curly then it normally is. I highly reccomend this stuff.
I picked this up on a whim at Big Lots. After using it for two weeks it is time for a review. I have a VERY sensitive scalp that breaks out from almost every conditioner. I also have LOTS of fine, wavy, highlighted hair. Typically if a conditioner is moisturizing enough to detangle my hair my scalp breaks out. The B2B ginger conditioner completely detangles all my hair, AND my scalp has no negative reactions. It is a little too moisturizing for me for every day, which I have never found before. However, until I can find another that can detangle my hair, and not break me out, I'll keep using it every day.
Conditioner -TRESemme - Smooth and Silky Vitamin H and Silk Proteins

I bought this thinking it wouldn't be much risk if I didn't like it. I have lots of fine wavy hair. I needed a conditioner with lots of slip to detangle my hair. This made my hair SUPEr soft, and tangle free. I am shocked there are not more reviews on this product.
After reading the reviews for this product, and Target putting it on SUPER clearance I picked it up. I am in love with it. It gives me great shine, minimizes the frizz, and leaves my hair so soft. I am allergic to so many products, but this one my scalp doesn't mind.
Treatments -Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion
JessKW 8/4/2006 3:59:00 AM
Well I have never liked Neutrogena products in the past, and I didn't think I would like this, but I LOVE it. I was fed up with my skin, and wandering around Target, and decided I could give this a try. I had broken out from trying different hair products, and the pimples end up all along my hairline and typically take a week or two to disappear. If I apply this stuff to my skin they are half the size overnight, and within 3 days completely gone. I can't say that about any other product I have tried. I only use this when my skin is errupting in anger, aka pimples, but I will never be without this product. I am tempted to try other Rapid clear products.
Eye Shadow -Mally Beauty - Mally Beauty City Chick Smokey Eye Kit - Brownstone
JessKW 4/2/2006 12:51:00 AM
I debated a long time over which "Smokey Eye Kit" to try, as I have way to much eye shadow. This kit is adorable first off, and very easy to open; compared to my stila palettes that take work to get open. Now on to the good stuff: the shadow colors are AMAZING. I thought it was going to be more of a brownish shade, until I was reading the reviews. It really looks AMAZING with my hazel green eyes. I love how easy it is to achieve the smokey eye look. I also love it because I can tone it down completely, using the darkest color for liner, instead of contouring. For anyone who is learning about how to get smokey eyes, or use more contouring, this is the kit for you. It is so simple, as the shadows come in the order you should apply. They also last for a VERY long time, I had to take it off before it came off after a very long day.
Eyes -Mally Beauty - The Light Wand Eye Brightener Powder Pencil
JessKW 4/2/2006 12:44:00 AM
I am in love with this product. It makes me appear finshed, and not tired. The pencil feels like your not getting much product, but when you look it is there. then you take the other side of the pencil, with the product on a sponge, and rub that on, and in seconds you look like your fully energized and spent alot of time putting your makeup on.
This is AMAZING concealer. You only need a few pin size drops to cover your entire under eye. I followed the directions on the package, as I know some have said its cakey. I didn't find it cakey at all. It blended perfectly, didn't slide around my face, and most of all it coverd my SUPEr dark under eye circles with little work. The tube isn't huge, but it'll easily last me a year with how little I needed to cover my ENTIRE under eye.
Wow! I LOVE this product! I was skeptical, after trying other Philosophy products. However, I don't like alot of masks/treatments because of the amount of time you need to leave them on. This one you can rinse off in around 3 minutes, and still get WONDERFUL results. I have awesome skin, most of the time, but I didn't realize how tired it was looking until I used this kit. After using the kit my skin looked alive and bright, without any makeup. The texture was as smooth as as silk, and that didn't go away. I can't say enough wonderful things about this product. It is certainly worth the huge expense.
I LOVE these eye shadows. They are so pigmented, and last for hours. They still look the exact same after 12 hours.. They are just amazing. I only have 7 in my collection right now, but I plan on changing that.
Makeup Brushes -Bobbi Brown - Ultra Fine Eye liner brush
JessKW 1/19/2006 7:30:00 PM
I wish I had bought this eyeliner brush when I got my Bobbi Brown eyeliner gel. I had been applying my gel with a MAC eye liner brush, and while I loved the gel, sometimes my line would be thicker then I wanted. I tried this brush, and was able to get the liner super close to my lash line, which is how I like it for basic, daily make up. I LOVE BB brushes!
I was so disappointed with this product. I wanted to love it, the price is amazing, I love the packaging.. But hte product inside the packaging seemed like it wasn't even drug store worthy. It made my eyebrows look bizzar, and had no holding power. My eye brows naturally wanna go down, not up, but I can make them go up with tweezerman gel. I wanted the color though, so I figured the Stila brow polish would be similar.. Unfortunetly I was wrong, however I naturally have very fine thin eyebrows.
There is a reason this product has so many reviews, it is simply amazing. It has a lovely texture and is the perfect color for me. It is fairly neutral, which is what I love. I was not a blush fan before, but I havefallen in love with this one.
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20
JessKW 1/19/2006 7:21:00 PM
I bought this tinted moisturizer as a result of the reviews on here. I am lucky enough to have good skin, but I like the way a tinted moisturizer gives me a little more spark. It spreads out evenly, as well as blending in. The quality is super, and my skin feels so silky. I am sad I didn't try this sooner.
This is my HG of mascara. From the first time I put it on, I knew I finally found the one. It makes my eyelashes SUPER SUPER long, seperated, and holds curl! It is the mascara sent from heaven, seriously. I don't have the problem of it not staying where it is put. I can't get over how great this mascara is.
