Shampoo -John Frieda - Luxurious volume full splendor
VioletPearl 12/7/2011 4:36:00 AM
I like this shampoo, but I expected more volume from this. I have fine, frizzy and split end prone hair, and this shampoo leaves it really shiny and without any frizz. Although I have to say that my roots become a little greasier with this one, I think this is maybe due to the silicones in it. Overall this is a good shampoo, but I won't repurchase it, I like the Color Renew (the purple one) so much better, and I also want to try other shampoos from the John Frieda range.

This is the best hair serum in the entire world!!! Not like those fully-silicone stuff out there in fancy packaging at all. Makes hair really soft and shiny, but if you have fine hair like me, I recommend to use it on wet hair only and only at the damaged areas of your hair (ends). I would definetly buy this again, but probably it will last me 1-2 years, due to the fine texture of my hair, I only need 1-2 tiny drops with each application. LOVE this!!!
Doesn't crease on me at all, and I like the subtle pearly finish. Sometimes I just wear it alone with some liner, I like how it freshens up my eyes when I am tired. Pigmentation is also really good, this is a great creamy e/s and e/s-base in one product, love it's versatility.
This is a great product. I used to clean my brushes with whatever shampoo, or soap that I use, and for small brushes it works great. But my foundation brushes, (sigma F80 and a regular "flat" foundation brush from Lancome) never were 100% clean, there were always some resuide from foundation. Then I decided to purchase Mac's brush cleanser and I looove it!!! My brushes are perfectly clean now and I really like the fact that I don't have to wait too much until they are perfectly dry. The only thing I don't like that the paciging doesn't come with a "spritzer" so I have to search something (a contanier) to not to waste any product. I will still deep clean my brushes sometimes with shampoo, but I will stick with this cleanser for everyday use, I really like it! ♥
This is the perfect neutral rosey-brownish blush for me. The formula is really soft, it can be layered if needed, stays on and looks great on my skin. This is my new everyday favourite, I really enjoy using it! :)
My HG concealer! LOVE ITTT!!! Lasts all day and the color stays true, doesn't change to an orangey-pinkish color trhoughout the day. I can use it on my blemishes and under my eye as well, (applying it with a brush to spread it evenly) and looks awsome! I would repurchase it again, definetly!!!
I like this eye cream, but I regret that it contains some paraffin in it... :S:( I will use this up, but then I will try out the rich version, wich has better ingredients, I think. (And I also think my under eye area won't regret some extra moisture...) But it is a good basic eye cream, goes well with makeup too. EDIT: !!!!!!!!!!! I had some seroius eye irritation from this crap. :S:S:S:S Made my eyes swollen when I woke up (two times in a week) until I realized it was from this crap... My eyes where so swoolen I barely see anything. I had to take some calcium tablettes and then it slowly went away. I didn't use it anymore and the prblem didn't appear. I DO NOT RECCOMEND THIS IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE EYES!!!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

wow, this so good for my skin. my skin is acne prone, but very sensitive and dehydrated, and when i put this on my face it just soaks in leaving my skin soft and smooth. i have the pump version so i think it will last me a while, the only thing i regret about this face gel it's the price... but it's worth it... ♥ MY HG MOISTURIZER!
This is a really good quality bio-natur lip balm in a stick form. (the formulation is lighter than the Alverde lip balm) I like it because it feels light on the lips but moisturizes well and the taste is also good. The price is unbeatable and for me is important that is only made of natural-bio ingredients. HG (with the Alverde one)
I bought a sample from this and I tried it various times. I didn't like it at all. It was hard to blend, was cakey and felt sticky, emphasized my pores and imperfections. Wouldn't buy it...
WOW, WOW, WOW! I don't really have luck with Pantene products, but this one is the exception... Made my fine, dry-ended hair soft, bouncy and extremly soft. It has a nice, thick consistency and not the typical Pantene scent, it is quite floral-citrusy scent. I will definetly repurchase this hair mask. <3 Love it.

It was a bit too sheer for my liking, i prefer the time renewal mask... i would use it on normal hair...
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash pink grapefruit foaming scrub

This gentle scrub replaced my all time favourite daily scrub from Clean & Clear. It has a nice consistency and gentle enough to use it daily. Leaves my skin fresh and smooth, and the nice fruity smell makes me feel good. :)
Foundations -Unlisted Brand - Astor Perfect Stay Make Up

It is a really long lasting, humidity and transfer proof foundation. Covers good, I would say it gives a medium-high coverage but without being cakey. It controls shine pretty good and stays on all day, there is no fading here! Fantastic foundation, my color is the lightest, wich is number 100, but there are no many colors to choose from, only 5 or 6 colors. (Although it is dark for me.) It has spf 18 in it and has a great quality pump in it. It is a bit expensive for ds foundation but worth the prize! edit: I still really like this one, but I am not really satisfied with the color, it is too dark and yellow for me, so I gave it to my sister who also adores it (and has darker skin tone)!
