I really didn't see that this product absorbed any oils. I don't have extremely oily hair or anything but I like to use dry shampoo in between washes. I didn't notice any unreasonable amounts of residue left in my hair after using this, but it made my hair feel weird. Spraying only a little bit didn't do anything and spraying too much made my hair feel greasy. I don't suggest buying this at all. I'm going to spend the extra money for Oscar Blandi's dry shampoo.
Liquid -Rimmel - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

I only had this product on for a little while. I bought the lightest shade they had, and it looked to dark but I really wanted to try the foundation anyway, so I bought it. I put it on and it was about 6 shades to dark for me. They need a wider range of colors.
I wish more people knew how amazing this eyeshadow is! It looks like a color you could easily find a dupe for, but you can't. I've never seen a color like this. It's gorgeous! Its perfect in the crease if you just want suddle definition, but you could easily build it up for a more noticable crease color. It is so flattering on my fair skin. I love wearing it in my crease with All That Glitters on my lid. I pretty much mix this eyeshadow with whatever crease shade I'm using that day, because it makes every color look even better. Holy Grail eyeshadow. I will never go without it.
Styling Products -Pantene - Curly Hair Style Spray Gel

Lose this spray gel! I sometimes spray it in my hair at night and when I wake up, my curls are more defined and have very little frizz! I also spray it in my hair before scrunching it and it really helps! Pantene is one of my favorite brands!
Styling Products -TRESemme - Curl Care Flawless Curls Curl Enhancing Mousse
ccx3x0 8/19/2011 10:16:00 PM
My favorite curl enhancing mousse ever! I've tried so many and this one does the best job of enhancing my curls! I scrunch it through my hair when it is soaking wet (I use about 4 pumps because my hair is really thick) and then blowdry halfway with a diffuser on cool. Some pieces of have do feel crunchy, but it doesn't look like my hair is crunchy at all! But if I put too much in, my hair with look crunchy. So it's just a matter of how much mousse you use. Holy Grail hair mousse!
My favorite MAC Blush! It will look gorgeous on all skintones! It's a coral-y, peachy, reddish color with shimmer. The shimmer makes you look so healthy and alive! I apply it with a really light hand and it adds the perfect flush to my pale skin, (NW15) but it is also very buildable. I would recommend this to anyone!
Tinted Moisturizer -Stila - Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer in Shade 1
ccx3x0 8/18/2011 5:06:00 PM
I was skeptical to buy this product because shade 1 (the lightest shade) seemed too dark for me. I am very pale and this shade fits me perfectly! It blends into your skin, so it will work for a lot of different skin tones. The formula is very lightweight and gives you a beautiful glow! The coverage is very light, so I always use a concealer underneath. But it really evens out my skin tone. And the it comes with a lot of product!
Highlighters -Urban Decay - Urbanglow Cream Highlight

Must have highlighter! The formula is amazing, very creamy and smooth and light! It adds the most beautiful glow to your face and it lasts all day when set with a powder highlight. My favorite shade is "Sin" it's just so gorgeous!
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. If you only wear natural shadows like I do, you don't need any other eyeshadows besides this one. It's amazing! You can create so many different looks. Plenty of day time looks and night time looks. Urban Decay's shadows never fail to be uber pigmented! I love using Dark Horse as an eyeliner and Naked to fill in my brows! The brush it came with is great. It packs on the eyeshadows beautifully. And its a great deal! You get twelve UD eyeshadows that are only slightly smaller than full size. So you are only paying 4 dollars per eyeshadow plus a nice brush! And if I remember correctly you get a mini primer potion. Amazing palette. Amazing deal!
The smell is very sweet and strong. I like the scent at first spray but it has a really nasty "after smell" that I can't even describe. It doesn't last long either. I do love the scent, but I simply can't wear it because of the disgusting smell that immediatly follows.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
ccx3x0 8/18/2011 4:44:00 PM
At first I didn't really like this product. I thought it was nothing special and it left kind of a residue on my face. But I continued to use it because, I needed a moisturizer. But now I love it! Its pretty thin, so it feels nice on my skin, but if I'm having a really dry skin day I need to layer a thicker moisturizer on top, but for the most part I like that its thin. It really does its job. I feel like it firms my face as well.
This mascara clumps my lashes together so bad it looks like I have 6 eyelashes! It looks horrible. The packaging is too bulky. There are much better mascaras out there. I hate this product and will never purchase it again.
I always heard great things about this blush, but just seeing it the package and even swatching it, it didn't look like anything special to me. But I followed the hype and decided to buy it. I'm so glad I did because it is beautiful! It looks stunning! I haven't used another blush since I've gotten it. It gives you the prettiest glow. So worth the money.
I went into Sephora and I asked the lady working there for a foundation that wouldn't look cakey, wouldn't clog my pores, and would give me a decent amount of coverage but still be light weight. She told me to try this foundation. First of all, I've tried MANY foundations and this had to be the cakiest one I've ever tried. My pores looked horrible, the coverage was okay, but nothing special. And after applying it (about 15min) my face felt it was fake. Horrible foundation!
The pigmentation payoff was not very good at all. Along with that, they are very hard to blend. It takes a while a lot of blending for them to look natural, and all the blending irritates my skin, so I really can't use these products. I have two different shades and both are really pretty colors, but I can't wear them because of the blending problem. They are only about 1 dollar so it was worth a try.
