Styling Products -John Frieda - luxurious volume hairspray

I'm surprised by the negative reviews- especially the ones that talk about this hairspray making their hair crunchy or sticky. As one reviewer pointed it out you should hold it a little way away from the head and spray a fine mist. Used this way I find it distributes lightly and evenly. I usually use this lightly on my ponytail before I twist it and wrap it into a chignon and it holds my hairstyle all day. I find that this hairspray does thicken hair a little but I haven't tried using it at the roots to get volume.

This is a moisturizing conditioner that doesn't weigh my curls down. I also use the recovery mask once a week which I love. Together these keep my hair in healthy condition.

I use this once a week to keep my dry curls moisturized. I used this for two years and then took a few months before I re-purchased. When I did repurchase I noticed that my hair felt softer and healthier again.
I use this once a week and it does an awesome job of removing product buildup.
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

I love the finish of this lip balm, my lips look healthy and dewy instead of shiny. There isn't much tint but I usually layer over a lip stain anyway so that does not bother me. My favorite lip balm ever!
Styling Products -Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Serum

This along with Frederic Fekkai Glossing cream are HG products for my long curly hair. I mix one squirt of this serum with a little bigger than a pea-sized amount of glossing cream, let my hair dry for a couple hours (it takes a long time!) and my curls look gorgeous- virtually no work required. This is also a good touch up product to tame frizzies if I blowdry my hair straight. I love this product so much that even though I lost a large size of it that I had only bought two weeks ago I immediately went out to buy a new one.
Styling Products -Frederic Fekkai - Glossing Cream with Olive Oil

This along with PM Skinny Serum are HG products for my long curly hair. I mix a giant pea size amount of this product with one squirt of serum, let my hair dry for a couple hours (it takes a long time!) and my curls look gorgeous- virtually no work required. This is also a good touch up product to tame frizzies if I blowdry my hair straight. I was dubious about buying this product because of the price but I am so glad I did. It has a nice fresh scent and it really smoothes my usually frizzy hair.
Eye Shadow -Joe Fresh Style - eye shadow - all colours

I have this eyeshadow in pebble and black. Both are very sheer. The black looks more like a sheer charcoal gray than black and pebble is a sheer wash of a med brown. These could work if you want a natural look but if you want some serious pigment you would be better off buying MAC e/s instead. I will continue to buy JOE lipstain and cheek tint products but probably not their eyeshadow.
I have these in nude and cherry. The nude is a sheer shimmery champagne color that I use as a highlighter above my cheekbones and on my browbone. It looks very natural on my fair skin and for $4 it is a steal. The cherry looks bright red in the package but because the product is sheer comes out a natural rosy red color on my cheeks and lips. I like the minimalist packaging and I am very impressed with the quality and price.
I apply this product lightly to my bottom lip and press my lips together to get a light rosy raspberry stain on my lips. The stain lasts for several hours and I really like the cute packaging. I'd like to try the sheer pink lip stain next.
