Conditioner -Suave - Keratin Infusion Smoothing Conditioner
Leila03 11/21/2012 6:18:00 AM
I have never bought a Suave product before this one because when it comes to hair products, I am a snob. I have been using Pureology Hydrate shampoo and conditioners for years, however, it was breaking the bank. I was at Target and I remembered hearing my sister say how much her daughter loved some Suave combo she got. It was only $2, so I thought, "what the hell." I now know what she was talking about. I LOVE this conditioner. My hair is smooth and soft, but not greasy at all. Like, I can go days without it getting greasy with this conditioner. That blows my mind because every other conditioner has been too heavy and greasy. Try this one out ladies, AMAZING and cheap. I am going to keep buying this again and again.
I cannot live without this product. I bought the original Clarisonic, which is now called the classic. It came before the Mia, Mia 2, and Aria that are all out now. It has made the biggest difference in my skin, honestly, more then anything else. I love how you can customize the kind of cleanse you want based on the brush head. I usually use the sensitive brush head in the morning and the deep pore brush head at night to really remove all of my makeup. The acne brush head is also, really, really great. That one has longer, plusher bristles, but is more dense. This may seem expensive to some, but I have had mine for around 5 years and have never had an issue with it. It has paid for itself over and over again. My skin is soft, even, and clean!! Could not live without it and I also could not live without the Opal either. Clarisonic is a great product and the company really stands behind their product. Get one ladies, you will not be disappointed.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
Leila03 9/20/2012 5:52:00 AM
This is my favorite liquid liner to date. I have already repurchased it, and I am sill pleased with it every time I reach for it. I have the color retrograde, which is like a dark, sparkly purple. Some people may not like the brush, but for me, it is the easiest brush I have ever used. I can get an extremely, thin, precise line with it. Not the best for a thicker cat eye, but that is why I like it. It is quite expensive, but that hasn't stopped me from buying it again and again. Ladies, if you don't like it, you can always return it.
I have the color London Baby and I really, really like it so far. It is about a dollar more than the ELF gel eyeliner, but also far more superior. Color is a nice alternative to black and this particular eyeliner has excellent staying power. I always wore MAC Blacktrack and Dipdown, but I think I am 100% switching to this brand now. Honestly, the quality appears to be the same to me, but the Essence gel eyeliner is much, much more affordable. I plan on purchasing Midnight in Paris and Berlin Rocks as well.
My absolute favorite blush!!! This is my go to everyday! Such a beautiful peachy, pink color. Layers great if you want a stronger look to. Expensive at first, but this cheek stain lasts FOREVER!! Seriously, I wear mine basically every day. I have had it for over a year, and it s no where close to being done. You will not be disappointed with this cheek stain, which is Tarte's best one, in my opinion.
This eyeliner is so-so for me. Not the best liquid eyeliner, and not the worst either. Color is a nice, dark black. Staying power is good, but I don't have oily eyelids, so staying power is never an issue with me. Where I find the most fault with this is the applicator. It just does not create the precise, thin lines that I crave. When I want to do a heavier cat eye, this would work great, but I don't want that look every day. It was reasonably priced, but I will not repurchase again. I know there are better eyeliners out there. * 11/15/2012* I just threw it in the trash. Kept trying to make it work and realized i hated it. Will never buy again and don't wasted your money.
BB Cream -Dr. Jart+ - Blemish Balm Cream (black label)
Leila03 8/18/2012 2:25:00 AM
So far, this is the best foundation I have found for my skin. Most foundations break me out, or are to sheer,or to heavy. This BB cream has the perfect amount of coverage, does not feel like I am wearing a mask, and does not break me out at all. Yay!!! I have been wearing it for about a month, so I feel confident in reviewing it. It does have a grey/pink tone to it, but it literally melts into your skin and I doesn't make me look pink at all. Granted, I do have neutral undertones. Packaging is great, and for the amount of product you get for the price, I am quite pleased. Will definitely repurchase again.
Treatments -John Frieda - Go Blonder Lightening Spray
Leila03 1/20/2012 6:33:00 PM
DO NOT USE THIS!!!! This product RUINED my hair!! I have been highlighting my hair for four years now, and I have never, ever had damaged hair like I do now. Money has been tight, so I thought I could extend my coloring sessions with this product. I first, like many others, I loved it. It lightened my base and I could go longer in between highlighting. It seemed like a miracle product. WRONG!!! After weeks of consecutive use, I noticed that my hair was fried. I many fried. My hair is now broken off in CHUNKS all around the top of my head. I know it was this product for sure because that is the only area I sprayed this product. My friend also used this product and experience similar results. Bottom line... Do not use this! It should be taken off the market immediately. Now I just have to wait for my hair to grow back, which is going to take forever. If I could take back anything, it would by buying and using this horrible, horrible product.
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara
Leila03 1/20/2012 6:25:00 PM
Best. Mascara. Ever. This does everything that a mascara should. Volumizes, lengthens, and doesn't smudge or flake at all. I used to love L'oreal Voluminous, but this blows that mascara out of the water. This mascara is literally only $2.99 at every Walgreens too. Thank you Makeup Alley for turning me on to this mascara. I now have the lashes I always wanted:) Go out and get this mascara now ladies, it really is the best!!!
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Naturals Cleanser + Makeup Remover
Leila03 7/4/2011 2:41:00 AM
I love this cleanser!!! It is rare to find a cleanser that will remove ALL of your makeup and still leaves your skin feeling soft and not tight! I had been using Purity Made Simple, which I also really liked, but it really bothered me that Purity had parabens in it. Enter this cleanser. Absolutely perfect! Great scent, great ingredients, and actually does what it says: removes makeup and cleanses your face. Do not hesitate to buy this!!!
This is the best product that has come around in a LONG time. I am currently on Accutane and my lips and face have been severely dry for the past few months. I especially had a horrible split/crack on a corner of my mouth that was not healing. Usually Aquaphor is my HG-but nothing was working. Luckily I wandered into Lush and the amazing SA gave me a sample to help with the split on the side of my mouth. It took only one day/night of applying Ultrabalm to heal it. AMAZING!!!! It feels wonderful, doesn't have a strong fragrance, and most importantly heals! For the price and the size of the large tin, you are getting a lot for you money!! Go out and get this!!
