Oh man, even when I use this is small amounts, this just makes my fine, thin hair look greasy and clumpy. Perhaps if my hair was a bit thicker it would work, but for now its not happening. I have tried using a little or a lot, but still no go. Yucky, stiff, greasy hair.
Oh, where have you been all my life Woman? I have had this scent in the back of my mind since the 70's when I must have smelled it on my mother's friends. I finally purchased it after looking everywhere, and its just perfect, warm, not too sweet, smooth, and comforting. Love it, now on to the next conquest...
Eye Makeup Remover -Biotherm - Biocils Eye Makeup Remover Gel

Really crappy makeup remover. Does not remove anything! Bad formula, stings eye, costs too much. Don't bother.
I chose a bad colour, Brick Lane 520, but the formula seems to be allright. It did dry very quickly and lasted longer than I thought, I had to remove it though just because it is a muddy warm beige not good for my skin tone.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze Neverending Nude 505

Thick, orangey, opaque, pasty. Those words describe what this lip product was for me. Not good. It felt dry on the lips and the colour was not good for me at all. I am pale, so I am guessing a warmer complexion may work better for this shade. The consistency was so awful though, I am not going to try any other shades.
Treatments -Giovanni - Direct Leave in Conditioner

Really wonderful leave in for fine hair. I have tried a lot of them and this one is light, yet effective and has almost no scent. You need a very small amount and it leaves my highlighted air easy to comb and not frizzy or fly away. Love it.
Well here is a surprise for me. I am usually turned off by EA fragrances, most are awful on my skin, but this is really nice. I smelled it on a scent strip and was intrigued into going to the EA counter to spray it on. I may actually have to buy a bottle, since samples are rare at the Sears near to where I live. I seem to smell the dry down of Fantasy in this one, which is the best part in my opinion. Perhaps they share some notes, I am not sure but I like it and since its easy to buy and wear I am going to get it.
I have to agree with the previous review. These lip glosses have a thin runny texture and stay in place for about 1 minute before they are gone. The colours are all right, I likes the bare lips version, but wow they are runny. The little brush is all goopy and gloppy and I am glad I received these as a gift and spent no money on them!
Well, I have to say I am in the minority here with this product. I have used many home hair colour products and this one is not an improvement on the rest. My hair is naturally a dark blond and this turned it a lovely shade of apricot, I used the Medium Blond shade, and I had to correct it with another dark blond colour I bought at beauty supply shop. The orange colour was not great but I must say the condition of my hair was great. The conditioners and shine cream they give you in the kit are fantastic. That alone may be worth the 10 bucks I paid for it at Zellers. Perhaps my hair is hard to lighten without a double process, but I will stick with my beauty supply shop colour!
Pressed Powders -E.L.F. - Clarifying Pressed Powder

Well, Just like many other reviewers here, I ordered tone 1 thinking it was for fair skin with blue undertones...its not, its orange. Luckily all my other items, mostly lip glosses, are much better so I am happy overall, just can't wear their face products. Stick with the lip gloss and eye shadows.
This is aged patchouli with a little wood added and its fantastic. Its not too sweet and not too dirty. I love it and have been wearing it every day this summer. It stays close to your skin and fills me with joy every time I get a whiff of myself. There is no amber which is good, most patchouli frags smell too ambery to me. My fav patch so far next to Patchouli Patch by l'Artisan.
I really love this product. I have combo skin and my chin breaks out the most. This clear serum makes my skin smooth and soft and less likely to break out. I mostly put it on oily areas since I only have a sample and want to make it last. I am not too happy with the price though and will have to save up to buy this when my little sample runs out! Its $55 USD for 3.4 oz on the murad website.
Conditioner -Victoria's Secret - so sexy volumizing conditioner
alpharabbit 3/16/2006 10:00:00 AM
This conditioner leaves my fine hair light and fluffy and detangles pretty well. Most volumizing conditioners I have tried leave a dull film on my hair, but this makes it shiney and smooth. Smells like Downey fabric softener though, which I don't consider too sexy. I got it for $7, so a good deal in my mind. Worth buying again if the smell doesn't start to bug me.
This looks great on my grey eyes, it was cheapo and is super soft to apply. Love it.
I cannot believe how well this works. It does have a hefty sting for a few minutes, but turns my lips plump and pink. This is the only lip plumper product I have tried but am very surprised with the results. Edit: This only happened the first time I used this. Now it only works a little bit, basically turns my lips pink and slightly tingly. Not worth the price for that!
