This is my HG conditioner I have color treated fine hair and although its fine, I have a lot of hair. I have used this color treated set (shampoo too) for 13 years and it is the best out there. The price is high so throughout the years, I have tried other products but I ALWAYS come back to this because it gives me the best results - not flat, shiny, moisturized hair thats easy to control. Most recently I have tried WYN hair care from television and Loreal Professional Line. The WYN is awful and I used it to shampoo my dogs and Loreal Professional (tried color treated set) left my fine hair flat and dry. I get lots of complements on my hair and how soft and touchable it is and shiny. I color my hair red and I do believe that this helps hold the color longer - red fades very easily. I have tried the other lines from Fekkai and this is the HG one for me. The others were just so-so. This was sold at Sephora but now its sold at Ulta, Walgreens and Target. Ulta offers the best value as they sell the large containers (you get a price break per oz if you buy big container) verses the 8oz bottles.

I tried this based on the reviews here and I do not like this product. It feels great on the skin when you first apply it but I had the white cast on my face that others describe on this forum. What is worse it that instead of hiding my pores, it highlighted them (i have large pores on my cheeks) so much so that a friend that I have known for 13 years said "What's going on with your face today?" Let me add that I appreciate all the posts here and make sure when I post that I try the product for a few weeks. I also tried variations of one pump or two and even just spot treating. Nothing worked. Should also add that I have yet to find a primer I like. The search continues...
Mascara -Chanel - Inimitable Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel

I have naturally long lashes and by far this is my HG mascara. I tried it based on the reviews here and I love it. I prefer a natural look. To achieve this I must NEVER DOUBLE DIP. Here is the trick: When I take the wand out of the tube I wipe it gently with a wash cloth. It looks like there is no product on the brush. I do one eye and then the other, WITHOUT dipping it back in the tube for the second eye. My lashes look long and natural and curled and it lasts all day without any issues. I have never found a product to compare and have tried most drugstore brands as well as the variety kit sold at Sephora; best mascara ever!
This product is just ok. Nothing too special about it!
Eye Shadow -Chanel - Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow Eclosion

I have been using this for a few weeks and it's just ok. The colors are beautiful but I'm not sure what to do with the peach color and the lightest shade has too much glitter that transfers on your face even with a good primer. I like it....just don't love it and for the price... It should be loved. For reference I have redish brown hair and olive skin and brown eyes with some green. What I do like about these color is that they are natural and make me look "awake". I use an eye primer and the shadow stays all day long.
