This is the best heat protectant I've ever used! It gives good heat protections and the olive oil in it makes your hair silky and smooth. However it can make your hair greasy if you use too much or spray it on your scalp - I recommend only using it on the middle and ends of your hair. After straightening my hair, it's even more soft and super silky. It's often on sale at Sally's and I would repurchase!
I bought this in "Cherry Me" for $2.99 just for the purpose of the tinted color, not the actual lip balm. With one swipe, it is a sheer pink and it's buildable to a sheer red. It smells very fruity like artificial cherry candy, but it does NOT taste as good as it smells. It tastes like plastic and whenever I accidentally lick my lips, I regret it because the taste is so awful. However, the formula is soft, smooth, and moisturizing. It's perfect for when you want a little bit of color and moisture on your lips but don't want to put on a thick, drying lipstick. The color doesn't last that long - only about an hour, but it is very sheer so I don't expect it to be long lasting. The packaging is cute and sturdy. I would repurchase in other shades just to try them out :)
I tried this in the shade "Birthday Suit" which is a pale bubblegum pink color. It was absolutely horrible - the lipstain is chalky, dry, and sheer. The lipgloss is very sticky and gloopy. I tried to use chapstick to make it look less chalky but it didn't work. It doesn't feel comfortable on your lips and it didn't look good at all. My friend who was there when I tried it on told me it looks gross and to take it off immediately. I went back to the store I got it from and got a refund. I would possibly try the lipstain in different colors if they aren't chalky and dry like Birthday Suit.
Mascara -Almay - Intense i-color w/ Light Interplay Technology
chloeemina 12/25/2011 10:08:00 PM
This mascara has a wet formula that thickens and lengthens your lashes and the wand is huge. I'm not a fan of the wet formula and the big wand combined - I have small eyes and the mascara tends to get all over my eyelids, so I usually put an index card behind my lashes when applying it to prevent that from happening. However it is easy to remove the mistakes since it's not waterproof. It's also very easy to take off at the end of the day with just water. After about a month or two of everyday use, the bristles of the wand got icky and lost it's shape so I tossed it both times I purchased it. I like what the mascara does for my lashes, it makes them so long that if I look upwards my lashes touch my eyebrows but it is a little clumpy. It's not something I would repurchase often, maybe once in a while. Both times, the mascara came with a free Almay eyeliner that I like, which is the only reason why I purchased it.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational High Shine Fruit Punch
chloeemina 12/24/2011 12:10:00 PM
"Fruit Punch" is a light red with LOTS of lavender/light pink sparkles. I absolutely love the color and the staying power is great! The packaging is metallic and mirror-like, and the sticker on the bottom has a swatch of the color which is very accurate. It smells very fruity but it's pleasant and not overpowering. It is a little dry, but I always wear chapstick underneath so I don't have a big problem with it. When it fades, the glitter still remains on your lips and you have to rub it off. I got this for about $5 at Target and I want to try other shades from the Color Sensational High Shine line :)
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
chloeemina 12/24/2011 12:00:00 PM
The blush is a very sheer light pink with gold sparkles and the bronzer is the perfect light chocolate brown with the same gold shimmer. I love the bronzer and I use it everyday, but I'm not a fan of the blush! When you apply it, all you see is glitter and not so much of the pink color. The staying power on both is okay - it probably lasts for about 3-4 hours but for the $3 price, I don't mind! The packaging is nice and sleek with a large mirror. I would repurchase just for the bronzer :)
Lip Treatments -eos - LE Strawberry Sorbet & Passionfruit 2-Pack
chloeemina 12/24/2011 11:51:00 AM
I'm not a fan of how the pink strawberry sorbet one smells. I was very disappointed when I first got it - it smells like artificial strawberry candy or a cheap lip balm meant for little girls. However, it does not smell so bad to the point where I don't use it. I use it on occasion since I keep it on my computer desk, but I prefer to use the eos sweet mint one. I recommend getting any other scent besides this one!
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Sweet Mint
chloeemina 12/24/2011 11:44:00 AM
I absolutely love this! When you put it on your lips, the consistency is thick and smooth, but not too thick that it feels uncomfortable. I use it every single day under my lipstick to prevent my lips from looking chapped and I love how soft my lips feel. Only the sweet mint lip balm has a light refreshing minty sensation and that's why this scent is my favorite! I also love the packaging - it makes it very easy to find it in your purse compared to a normal stick. You have to be careful when closing it though, it's easy to dent the lip balm with the lid!
Eye Shadow -Hard Candy - Kal-eye-descope Baked Duo Rock n Roll
chloeemina 2/28/2011 10:52:00 AM
The picture of this duo is way off - it looks like pink and brown, but it's actually a light lavender and dark purple-gray. The color combo goes together really well and it looks nice on your lids! The shadows are soft and silky and very easy to blend. The shimmer in it is really pretty! It's almost metallic in a way. The colors are very subtle, so this is good if you want to use purple eyeshadow without it being too bright :)
I have gone through so many of these soap bars! It's my absolute favorite and it smells so fresh and clean. Also, it makes my skin soft and smooth. It's pricey compared to other brands of soap, but I prefer it over others!
This shampoo makes my hair so soft and silky! It has a fresh laundry type of scent that I love, and even when my hair is dry, I can still smell it. This is probably one of the best shampoos I have ever tried since it really made my hair so smooth. The thing I don't like is the cap, for some reason I find it hard to open and I have to struggle!
Deodorants -Dove - Ultimate Clear Go Fresh Energizing
chloeemina 2/27/2011 10:26:00 PM
This smells so refreshing! It lasts a really long time and the smell doesn't fade. When I lay in my bed at night, I sometimes rest my arms behind my head and I can automatically smell this deodorant that I put on in the morning. I have tried this and the cucumber one, and both have not disappointed me. I look forward to try out the other scents from the Go Fresh line!
Deodorants -Dove - Go fresh - cucumber & green tea scent
chloeemina 2/27/2011 10:21:00 PM
This smells SO fresh! It lasts a really long time and the smell doesn't fade. Whenever I shave my armpits in the shower the next morning, after putting this deodorant on the previous morning, I can STILL smell it on my armpits! It definitely lasts more than 24 hours on me. I have already purchased this twice, and I plan to keep buying it for life!
I have used this in black, dark brown, and medium rich brown. I used the black in late 2009 and the dark brown in early 2010 - I absolutely hated them both since it faded within a month. I recently dyed my hair with the medium rich brown and I'm surprised that it hasn't faded at all! I'm guessing they changed their formula, but I'm loving it! It's super cheap and it has greatly improved in quality :)
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational Pink Me Up
chloeemina 2/27/2011 9:41:00 PM
This is the perfect pink for me! My lips are naturally very light pink and I hate the way it looks with my skintone, but Pink Me Up adds a natural deep pink color to them. The color sensational lipsticks in general are moisturizing and I love the packaging! The stickers on the bottom are pretty accurate to the true lipstick colors.
