I have naturally curly AA hair and it drank this shampoo up! Immediately, while lathering, my hair felt more manageable. After rinsing, it was incredibly soft. And this was only after one use. L'Oreal hit the mark on this one.

I love the color but the texture is terrible. Why people compare it to MAC's Fluidline is beyond me. I used it once, let about three weeks go by and it was incredibly dry. It flaked on my brush. Perhaps I received one in a bad batch but I'll stick to splurging a bit on Fluidline.
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

Honestly, I'm just waiting to use this up. My skin is oily enough to the point where I'm blotting with TISSUES after about 2.5 hours. The primer itself is a lovely, satiny texture. It goes on pretty smooth and translucent and, to be honest, I like the texture better than the higher-end primers I've tried but it doesn't do much. I'll continue my search when this is all used up.
I bought the trial size from Ulta and I'm grateful that I did. This cleanser isn't bad nor is it anything to rave over. I have very oil, blemish-prone skin and it didn't do much. It reminds me of Cetaphil in its texture. It's very gentle and it works great with my Clarisonic but it's nothing special.
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray

I have EXTREMELY oily skin and was recommened this spray. I finally sucked it up to spend the $29.00 at Ulta. I sprayed after applying my primer and liquid foundation and then again after but before my powder. Within 3 hours my face was like an oil refinery. I just cannot win. I'm returning this to Ulta. Definitely not worth almost $30.
A Sephora associate suggested this to me as I complained about my severely oily skin. I'm not sure what she mixed it with but it lasted for a good six hours after I left the store. However, after bringing it home and applying under my foundation (MUFE HD) the next day it was a different story. My nose, cheeks and forehead was matte for a good two hours before it was an oil slick. I mean, literally soaking. through. blotting sheets. This product is much too expensive to work this way.
