Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - On The Edge Creme Liner - Little Black Dress
curlyhairchick369 1/16/2013 5:52:00 PM
this gel liner is great for its price. the packaging kinda sucks, the cap on it doesnt twist down all the way. the brush is good, doesnt shed. the product itself is really black, stays on like a badass, and doesnt smudge. however, when you dip the brush in the product, it comes on to the brudge kinda chunky, and like too much. but if you wipe off the excess on the side, its okay :)
I've been on the hunt for a good, effective, spray leave in conditioner. its important for it to be a spray, since i put a lot of products into my curly hair. i feel like sprays cause less buildup than cream leave in conditioners. i used this product a few times last april, and i loved it! it detangled, left my hair soft, i was entranced! i bought it this january (it took me quite a while to justify an 11$ tiny bottle) and it doesnt really do anything for my hair! it detangles a little, but not nearly as much as it did when i used it last april, and the softness/nourishing effect my hair experienced in april? gone. i have to use my argan oils with this to make my hair feel soft. not worth the money. i am curious about the keratin spray though...
Conditioner -Garnier - Triple Nutrition Conditioner

I love to experiment with drugstore conditioners and shampoos, and don't usually repurchase ones I've already tried. I've used this conditioner before, but upon discovering that it was on sale, I picked it up readily. I hope to make this review short and sweet: this conditioner is cheap, and makes your hair feel luxuriously soft. If you're looking for a miracle worker for your split ends, you probably won't find it here, but this conditioner is very good for it's price, and leaves your hair feeling soft and silky.

i love this! it held my curls, and moisturized them, in conjunction with the conditioner. however, the improvement was not drastic, and i still had to use serums/oils to make my hair soft. it is dirt cheap though, and i might repurchase it, but only after trying a lot more shampoos/conditioners. i say try it, if your hair isnt as dry as mine, it will do you good
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

this product is super dark and super creamy, but only right after you sharpen it. Two or more uses after sharpening, the color becomes not as intense. Which I guess isn't too bad though, cuz right after I sharpen, it is dark, creamy, and stays on all day. It does smudge under the eyes, but I like the smokey effect it gives my eyes. Hate how its so expensive, though...
I honestly do not understand the hype! This product would be completely average, had it not been so overpriced, which makes it two lippies and not a solid three. I have not used it up halfway, so I don't know whether it gets gloppy or not like everyone says. The smell is horrendous, and honestly, I don't really notice a difference between me using this and not. It does give my nails a glossy finish, but there's no like, awesome, intense shine, and the polish stays on a maximum of three days without cheaping, which is pretty bad. I would maybe consider repurchasing this after I tried some other topcoats, but it's just so expensive I wouldn't even dream of it! not worth the money, ladies
My review is for the Walgreens brand dupe of this product, and its the blemish and blackhead control one. I LOVE how CVS and Walgreens are making dupes for popular products like this, or the Neutrogena Makeup remover, since they are made of the same things, just the drugstore brand is cheaper. This product is good. I kind of want to try a Neutrogena scrub, but I might repurchase this after I finish. I have oily skin on and near my nose and on my chin, so I use this scrub there. I don't use this on my forehead or cheeks, because those places are already smooth, and exfoliating them would just make them raw and red. But this has diminished my blackheads on my nose CONSIDERABLY, and make me stop breaking out on my nose! I like it, and the smell is nice. The packaging is really handy too.
this eyeshadow feels like silk on your eyelids. applying this product itself is a treat. fallout is minimal, it doesnt crease, and the color is so beautiful every time i put it on i swatch it on my hand, just for the hell of it. the packaging is kind of unsturdy, since my shadow broke and cracked when i traveled with it. i still use it though cuz it is just so pretty. the only flaw, the price. i cannot justify buying a champagney pink color for such a price, when im sure i could find one at the drugstore! i got this gift, and honestly i love it so much im gonna have to repurchase, but doesnt mean ill be happy doing it :/

this moisturizes and heals fine. i dont really see what the whole cult rave follower thing is about since this product is really just fine. I wouldnt be able to use it underneath lipstick though cuz its pretty greasy, but it adds a little color and shine to my lips and looks cute on. the packaging is pretty, but oh my goodness, it is SO hard to get open!!! i have to pry it open with my fingernails which i do not enjoy doing. the formula is good, but if i would repurchase i would by one of the other three, like the strawberry one
Eyeliner -Unlisted Brand - Loreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black
curlyhairchick369 8/18/2012 10:28:00 PM
I LOVED THIS! i dont like eyeliner thats REALLY harsh or REALLY black, and this was perfect! it wasnt a super intense black (if thats what you're looking for, get revlon colorstay liquid liner) but it was kinda smoky, which i LOVED. plus it lasted really long, and was easy to apply! found my love <3
LOVE IT STAYS ON LASTS LONG SUPER BLACK EASY TO APPLY whats not to love!???!!?! except for the fact that it looks like theres not a lot of product in the actual bottle :(
this is a WONDERFUL basecoat, and i dont know why anyone wouldnt like it. it dries in seconds, and feels really cool and rubbery when it dries. this, along with my seche vite top coat, keeps my manicure on for more then a week!!! thats CRAZY. also, when i took off my manicure, my nails look a lot stronger and healthier then when i didnt use a basecoat. my nails have grown a lot too since i started using this. i cant even say enough good things about it!!
Foundations -Maybelline - Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation
curlyhairchick369 8/8/2012 9:35:00 PM
this was my first foundation product. honestly it wasnt bad, nothing to write home about. my one issue is i didnt really know how to apply it, since i didnt have a stipling brush. i could use my fingers, but it would dissolve on my fingertips. if i used a sponge, it would be uneven, since all the product would be gone on the first section. the coverage is light, but my skin is fairly normal so i didnt have a problem. but it cant hold a candle to my covergirl natureluxe, so i will not be repurchasing
Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - LA Looks Durahold Styling Gel
curlyhairchick369 8/5/2012 5:12:00 PM
OHMYGOD. hg product right here. i dont understand why this product doesnt get so much hype! its dirt cheap, works really well, and comes in a humongous bottle that seems as though it will never run out! i recently purchased this gel (i have the yellow one, the one with the hold intensity of 9). i use this right after i apply my herbal essences curl mousse, and it leaves my hair frizz free and manageable for the next week! however, i would not recommend this to fine haired gals. this product is EXTREMELY crunchy. i love that, because crunchiness is good on my specific hair type (super thick, super curly) and i just add some leave in spray if its looking too crunchy, but for fine hair girls, this would just be tooo thick. even if u have medium thickness hair, proceed with caution.

curlyhairchick369 8/5/2012 5:07:00 PM
this product was GREAT. its the first curl mousse i ever tried, and it works wonders for my super thick, curly hair. i use it with the la looks mega hold gel (the yellow one, the hold number is 9) and it works great for my hair! this routine leaves it frizz free, and once i add a bit of leave in conditioner, not crunchy at all! and the smell... oh my god. i wish they had a perfume of this smell, its just so sweet and delicious and ohmygod. i probably will repurchase this, just not right away, cuz i am really curious to try out the suave curl enhancing mousse and the garnier curl construct mousse.
