Aptly named, effective and fun product. Does the job, so much so that i use less conditioner now. makes your scalp feel strong, and your hair shiny and healthy and easy to work with. I love the smell of rosemary.
When i first got this product, the scent was really overpowering, but it calmed down after a few weeks. I like putting it on my toes after coming in from the snow or the rain. it's VERY softening. maybe i got a bad package, but the little slider thing broke. A bit put off by the price, but i don't think little grains of cocoa butter come cheap.
Need only 1/6 to 1/5 of the bar to make lots of bubbles. very moisturizing and relaxing. leaves skin soft and smooth. Turns the bath a fun pinky purple color.
I was a bit surprised about the price, but I was pleased to see and feel how effective this product is at skin moisturizing and softening. it has done a remarkable job at lightening the dark spots on my skin and softening scaly elbows, knees and shoulders. i love the scent, at first i thought it was really overpowering, but i got used to it, and i like how it lasts on my skin, and later on my bed sheets. very neat product, i like how creamy soft and also scrubby it is. will repurchase, i may get the larger bar, just so it lasts longer.
Treatments -Neutrogena - On the Spot Acne Treatment Vanishing Formula

I didn't feel like spending a lot of money on an acne cream, this stuff does the job when i have a pimple or like three on my face. it's a bit runny, but that may just be my bottle. sometimes, it's hard to control how much you get out, but that's really not a huge problem. no scent, which is nice. definitely effective and not at all drying.
This stuff actually does hold a curl after applying at least 4 coats. lengthens lashes slightly, but no volumizing.
came as part of a set, and i wanted to try this formulation anyway. it is weightless, and it doesn't do much. i had to put on about 6 coats to see any sort of difference in my lashes, it just made my eyes look more awake, but no drama or glam effect.
I wanted to try a nude look for my nails, and this color isn't bad. Goes on smoothly. need at least three coats for the finish i want, lasts quite a few days. When the sales person tried it on my nails at the store, i was really impressed and had to take it home with me. a bit expensive for a french tone, but it's hard for me for find a good neutral color to complement my skin tone. Shiny, creamy color. good stuff.
Styling Products -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Volumizing Mousse

I love the smell and the application. does the job at adding volume when i lift up the strands, add the mouse and blow dry. after mousse i use the VS so sexy hair spray. the effect of this mousse is long lasting. will definitely repurchase. price isn't bad at all, can get it for 3 for $24 at VS stores, so you can mix and match with shampoo, conditioner, spray, mousse, etc.
Still need more practice applying this shade. I like the shiny redness to it. I was obsessed with Unforgettable Red by Maybelleine Salon Expert, but since i can't find that anymore, i have adopted Sample Sale. Needs about 2 or 3 shades to get the right finish, and maybe because i didn't buff or apply top/base coat as well as i should have, the stuff chipped rather easily. I really like Sephora by OPI shades, and i love that you can try them in store. This shade is good for the autumn and the holidays.
Just when i thought i had cycled through all the MAC mascara formulations, they come out with another one. I really like the brush, it gets all the lashes, and the formula actually separates lengthens and curls, so i don't use a curler, which is a nice time saver. However, it is very pigmented, and sometimes i get a lot of black on my fingers which is a bit of a hassle. This formulation lasts for HOURS. Very pleased.
I like it! it's very smooth and doesn't really budge. i've worn it without even putting primer on my lids and the color held, so that was a nice surprise. It looks good on its own but even better when paired with a highlighting shade (i use the pale pink in the Stila Perfect Pearl Palette) and some Benefit Eye bright for the corners. if you pile this color on, it looks really glam, so the formula is quite versatile.
Easy to apply, subtle color and finish. i think this shade would work for everyone. would work really well as a highlighter for the brow bone. use primer to make sure that it sticks.
Lipstick -Clinique - Almost Lipstick - Black Honey

The thing I really didn't like about this product is that it had that lipstick taste. It was a bit of a turn off. Other than that, the coverage is fantastic, and the color is suitable for everyone. It's very soft and smooth. The packaging is sleek, and the product itself is affordable. Color good for all ages and complexions. Again, the taste was the only drawback.
I've been systematically trying a MAC formula every three months. The difference between Dazzle and the other formulas is that Dazzle actually does curl efectively, and does a bit of separation. doesn't do much for length and thickening. the brush is cute, and does the job. works really well with Black Russian pearl glide liner. This mascara is not bad fort he price. doesn't clump very much, which is nice.
