Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Salon Grafix Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo
breeze1234 4/11/2013 2:33:00 PM
This review is for the BRUNETTE dry shampoo by Salon Grafix. It was on special at Beauty.com so I got 2. Blech. It makes my hair strawlike and the color gets ALL over my hands when I brush it out after use or pull my hair back. The regular seems to get good reviews - just be careful if you're thinking of picking up one with color in it (they make blonde, black, brunette and gray).
I really like Batiste dry shampoos in general. Picked this up because I saw it on sale and loved how I didn't have to be really careful to rub in a lot or have an "antiqued" look of the white powders. Since then, I have tried some other brunette dry shampoos and this one is so much better. Doesn't get color all over my hands after application when I'm brushing my hair or pulling it back. Will repurchase.

Good grief. After all the hype, I thought this would do SOMETHING interesting. Nope. Nothing. Nada. Sigh.
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Panasonic Heated Eyelash Curler

OMG. I'm so excited about this. If you read any of my product reviews, I lament (over and over) about my stick straight, short, hard to curl and impossible to keep curled lashes. Even with the best metal curlers (Shu, Japonesque, Shiseido) it took a lot of work (heating the curler with a hair dryer, always using WP mascara) to get reasonable results. I found this easy to use and the curl is wonderful. Sweeping - not just a sharp bend (my lashes are too short to do that "walk up the lashes" curling technique - I just clamp on and curl). I also like that you curl AFTER the mascara (still WP for me) is on since no matter what, I always needed a refresher curl and you know how the mascara sticks to the metal curlers and tries to yank out the lashes. I got this on Amazon for a decent price. For the results, I would have paid more. The curl stays for hours but not for an entire day so I think I'll get another one to keep in my purse.
Styling Products -Living Proof - Full Thickening Mousse

I must be doing something wrong. Got this because of the great reviews. I have very straight, limp hair. I would describe this mousse as average but nothing special at all. Certainly not the HG product people rave about. Disappointed - especially considering the price tag.
I've been using Shu Uemura curlers for years. Since they now need to be ordered online, the rep at Sephora recommended trying one of these. I'm glad I did. As good and maybe better than my Shu. Price is about the same. I'll repurchase. My lashes are very straight and short. I use a curler EVERY day.
Eye Makeup Remover -Cover Girl - CLEAN - Make-up Remover For Eyes & Lips
breeze1234 11/1/2012 12:36:00 PM
I've been using this for years and was surprised by the bad reviews. I ONLY wear WP mascara and this takes it all off. Doesn't burn my eyes, but I'm smart enough to keep them closed. :-) I've tried other removers, but they all lie and SAY they take off WP mascara but don't. I keep coming back to this. I don't find the smell strong or offensive. I don't wear lip stains so I can't speak to how well this works on anything except mascara.
I've been using this product since HS. A long, long time. Not an every day shampoo, but does what it's supposed to do - leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean. I love the smell. I have straight, fine, color treated hair.
This review is for the Fake Bake FAIR. I'm not going to write a big long review, but rather have you read nikkchikk's. It's perfect and what I would have said. I've been self tanning a long time. My boyfriend normally refers to me as his oompah loompa all summer long, but not with this stuff. I'm ghostly pale with NO yellow. A cool undertone - what there is. If you're a total white chick and everything makes you look orange, give this a try. 4 lippies for the smell. It's strong but not horrible.
Primer/ Corrector -Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Eclat (Radiant Touch)
breeze1234 8/24/2012 2:03:00 PM
I wanted to love it. It's perfectly fine and the color is nice, but it's nothing special at all - especially for the price. It's not a good concealer and it's not a great highlighter. What am I missing?
Very mediocre mascara. I got the WP because that's all I use since no regular mascara can hold a curl on my lashes. This didn't hold a curl either. By the time I got to work (15 minutes max), my lashes were looking limp. Several hours later, they were completely sad and straight. I haven't had any smudging, though, so that's a plus.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Fusion water resistant
breeze1234 2/2/2011 11:28:00 AM
Boo! I like the regular waterproof LastBlast in the orange tube so I was excited to try this as soon as the WP (that's all I use since reg mascara won't hold a curl) version came out. Didn't like this at all. Lashes straighted quickly and even though I always wipe the wand off before using, this was clumpy. Oh well.
Mascara -Kiss Me - HEROINE MAKE long and curl mascara (black)
breeze1234 2/1/2011 2:52:00 PM
Oh man! What a disappointment. I have short, straight lashes and I had high hopes for this product. It isn't *bad*, it's just so average. Doesn't hold a curl well and just sort of blah looking lashes. Sigh. I'll keep looking.
Used as others noted - just a smal amount and lathered prior to applicaton. Worked just fine. Nothing special, though, so I was a little disappointed. My skin feels slightly tight after using. This did NOT work on removing my mascara. I always use waterproof and still had to use an oil based remover after washing my face, so that was disappointing, too.
I feel bad complaining too much about a product that was only a buck, but this one is bad. Hard pencil that doesn't even spread easily when warmed. Save your pennies.
