Lipstick -Annabelle - Rouge Velours in "Adrenaline"

a very good layerable deep red colour. not moistruizing though so prepare lips prior to application and apply chapstick post application. will definitely re buy though !
i've been using this product for about a month now, and i can say i'm totally in love with it. The solid shampoo makes my waves and curls shine and cleans my hair & scalp thoroughly. For my shoulder length hair i swipe it about 3 times along my hand, lather the product, then apply to my scalp. The product itself doesn't come in packaging and is sold in it's solid form, which is no worry to me, it saves up on space in the bathroom. if you love the smell of cinnamon you'll definitely love this ! Just make sure you leave this product somewhere to dry (if using a lush tin, MAKE SURE the bar is dry before putting it in, or it will get stuck to the bottom scraping it off will totally ruin the entire product ) before putting it away. Make sure it doesn't get too wet when using or it might turn goopy/run off, wasting the bar. My bar barely looks used, it feels like this puck is going to last forever. As for hair growth, this bar feels like it has actually improved my hair growth ( not drastically) but i did notice the difference. Though, I can happily say my hair's healthier than it has ever been, ever. I'll be checking out other solid shampoo bars, but i would def repurchase NEW ! in a heartbeat.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - 080 Strawberry Shortcake
ayyberena 8/6/2012 2:19:00 AM
A very pretty pink. As expected this lip butter is moisturizing and sheer when applied with a light hand, it appeared slightly frosty on me. Staying power is decent. I found the packaging slightly challenging for me. Sometimes I struggle trying to take off the cap (my hands can get clammy hahahahha). Will re purchase, it's a good everyday shade for me.
This is an all over great mascara :). It comes in a black cylindrical tube. The brush is reminiscent of cover girl's lashblast mascara ( rubber brush with rubber bristles) , but it isn't as bulky, it's considerably thinner. Though it can be hard to manoeuvre in a rush. The formula smells kind of funny in my opinion, kind of chemical smell to it, which is why i deducted a lippy. It does not flake or smudge throughout the day and is easily removed at the end of it. Just be wary of the formula drying out, it gets iffy then. I'd still re buy this mascara though, it's price is reasonable :)
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Rosebud Salve

This lightly scented (a light whiff of roses) product works well as an all around moisturiser . On the lips, it has a slightly pink sheen to it, shiny but not sticky and very moisturising, feels awesome during winter or when my lips are feeling a bit neglected ! :) As for a regular moisturiser, it works just like vaseline, just without the greasy feeling to it. the tub, tiny and filled with 22 g (0.8 oz) of product last for an extremely long time ( i kid you not, extremely it also is not bulky and not a pain to carry around at all. Though this product is good, it reminds me more so of regular vaseline tinted pink, perfumed yet a little less greasy, which is why i didn't give it the highest rating. I would still re buy it though.
It does what the name suggests, it makes your lashes look voluminous. I wasn't looking for length, just volume. So i wasn't surprised when my lashes didn't flair out crazily. For some reason, the formula for this mascara when i bought it was a tad bit watery, which i disliked, but over time, it thickened, which made it super easy to work with. Be careful not to apply too much though, as your lashes might look spidery ( unless you're going for that look :) ) The brush was easy to work with and sturdy. Will repurchase definitely.
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

Very replenishing & moisturizing . It helps out during my -30 winters ! Smells somewhat like lemonade. Yes, it does taste odd, but you aren't supposed to eat lip balm , so no matter. This balm does leave a somewhat reddish tint to your lips. Will repurchase.
I bought this for around 14 $ , because i really wanted to try this product out. It goes on wet, very buildable with next to no clumps at all. This product lasts throughout the whole day, yet comes off easily with warm water. Will repurchase !
My hair is curly, extremely dry. @ first, I felt as if this product had made my hair drier. But eventually after a couple washes my hair felt EXTREMELY soft. I don't mind the price. Smells great ! Will continue purchasing.
I had to deduct a lippie because of the packaging. The packaging is waaaay to big & takes up alot of space. The brush is big, but you can get used to it. I absolutely love this formula ! It has a really good staying power ( on a average day, without working out) it will smudge if you rub your eyes, but i rarely do that . This formula has yet to clump on me. I haven't noticed any lengthening or volume really, but my lashes are already pretty long, so this defines them. This mascara has somewhat of an awkward smell to it, that i can't describe. This mascara is really easy to remove, even with just water . Will repurchase !
Styling Products -Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Serum

I absolutely love this product. A little goes a long way, which i appreciate a lot. I hairstylist that had recommended this product raved about it to me, so i decided, why not? I will never regret that decision at all. Hair is left soft, shiny, wonderful. It's very light and does not weigh down my curly 2c hair at all. The smell is amazing. This skinny serum does not build up on my hair, which is great. I'm trying to compare this to my CHI silk infusion, the only difference I've noticed is just the smell in between the two products. Where i am, Paul mitchell Super Skinny serum is cheaper than the CHI silk infusion ( PMSSS 17.99 CHI ( bigger size) 23.99 ). So yes, i will repurchase
I had a great time with this product. It's natural , moisturized my lips well and smelled great ! I think it was the peppermint in this product. Once applied, I felt a tingly sensation on my lips, which i didn't mind. I didn't have a problem at all with the consistency of the product at all. It was a bit waxy, but okay for my liking. I felt as if it didn't smush from the pressure i used to apply it to my lips. It was quite cheap too (: Overall, a great product. I recommend it to anyone.
I really like this product. Finding a lip balm is incredibly hard to find for me, but this did it . It was incredibly nourishing, it moistruised my lips well. This product also contains SPF 20, a bonus to this wonderful product!I will def. buy again.
I absolutely LOVE this product. The lotion itself is light & moistruizing , & a little goes a long way. I've used this since I was a child, and haven't found another lotion with better results then this one . It's a classic :) . The smell is bearable, it's not too strong. I will buy again & again :)
So, I decided to get this mascara because of all the great things I've heard about it . But to be honest, this product is over hyped ... I didn't like it at all. I didn't notice anything different from when I applied it. It smudged and flaked like there was no tomorrow . But that's just my experience. I'll don't think I'll ever buy this product.
