This product was okay. It didn't make my hair look as good as the Tresemme Heat Tamer. It made my hair look as if i used hair products. I also have a feeling it doesn't protect that well because my hair started to get really unhealthy after using it
Eye Makeup Remover -Equate - Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover
debbiechongo 8/14/2011 2:38:00 PM
This product works for regular eye makeup, not waterproof. It was my fault for buying it because i didn't notice it said oil-free. It's ok, still on regular eye makeup, not great.
Powder -Maybelline - Mineral Power Powder Foundation
debbiechongo 8/14/2011 2:35:00 PM
This product wasn't good. It wasn't horrible but it didn't do what it was supposed to. I heard good stuff about it but i can not imagine what other were thinking. It has this shiny particles in the powder that excentuate acne scars and problem areas. Next, it's called powder foundation, which i don't understand. it is BARELY A POWDER. barely, because it doesn't even cover up like a regular powder. something about this stuff just makes me look bad. don't buy it unless you have lighter skin and want VERY MINIMAL coverage.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Double Extend Mascara with Lash Boosting Serum

This stuff is great! it really gave me a lot of volume and lifted up my lashes. The glue really gets my lashes lifted and cirles while the black reinforces the curl and colors it dark. Simply great stuff, one of the best!
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - H2O Proof Liquid Eyeliner
debbiechongo 8/14/2011 2:28:00 PM
i'm not really sure why this product has a bad rating because i think it's great. Of course, it's not the best but it is amazing for the price you pay. It lasts almost all day, by night time, it does flake off, which i don't mind. what i love about this stuff is that it is so dark and noticeable. I think people don't like it because it's hard to put on maybe? idk, because i'm like an expert on putting on eyeliner (so i've been told :) I have gotten this product like 3 times, and it's my go to liquid liner (of course, i haven't used that many liquid liners because i've been stuck with this one) what i absolutely HATE about his product is that whenever i put it on, it gets on my lashes and clumps them together. ALSO i can't put any mascara on after i put this on, i have to put mascara on first. I guess it's not great at a lot of things, but it is very dark, pigmented, and very smooth, and lasts a long time.
This product is great! However, it does create a specific kind of lashes. It does exactly what it says it would create longer and fuller lashes, without focusing on just being long or just being more volumized. I have to give it a 5, because of that. I really like this mascara because it's noticeable. i have used so many mascaras that just plain don't work, look messy, don't curl, clump, look wet, too dark, and just suck. So i have to say that this one is amazing. You can't go wrong with it, but i'm sure it's not the best one out there. Before buying this mascara, i had accepted what i thought was the fact that i had bad lashes. I saw other girls with beautiful lashes that were noticeable and the ones i were using always clumped or didn't raise my lashes to be noticeable. This one showed me that, no, my lashes do not suck haha. my mascara's do. So that's why i love this product, for giving me that confidence :)
This product was great at first. I saw that it lasts 8 hours and decided to buy it. I reaalllyy wanted to buy something that lasts a long time without it being lipstick and very cakey. I chose the color forever raisin and i have to admit that it does not last the full 8 hours. the biggest problem that i had with this is that it kept getting on my teeth! i don't know how but maybe the fact that it doesn't really dry and it's not really wet that it gets on my teeth and stays there. Yesterday i had 2 people tell me i had lipstick on my teeth. very embarrassing. I won't be getting this product again, but it does have a great pigment. It's also not wet like a lipgloss, which is weird
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray
debbiechongo 8/14/2011 2:13:00 PM
I used this product like 2 years ago, loved it! it makes my hari smooth and when i use heat products my hair is sooooo shiny. btw THEY IMPROVED THE PACKAGING!! i just bought it last week and when you spray it on your hair, it's this very light mist that is great! the reason i didn't buy it again after the first time is because i had to spray it onto my hair because the spray came in a straight line. Now i can directly spray it only my hair with no problem! ALSO, there is a button on the nozzle that opens and closes it, so it's great for travel. no matter what heat protectant i use, I ALWAYS COME BACK TO THIS ONE. this is my holy grail heat protectant. along with heat, it makes your hair soo natural looking and helps the heat penetrate the hair to whatever style you want. I have used MANY other drugstore brands and they just made it look like i straightened or curled my hair. With this product, my hair looks naturally straight or naturally curly. I don't know how but i think it's the shine that is produced, it's amazing.
Styling Products -TRESemme - Curl Hydration Lotion Creme
debbiechongo 8/14/2011 2:08:00 PM
this product is AMAZING. I HAVE NEVER USED SOMETHING THAT a) TAMED MY FRIZZ b) CURLED MY HAIR c) SMELLED AMAZING d) BEEN SO CHEAP e) GIVE MY HAIR SHINE f) WASN'T GREASY I think that everyone with curly/wavy hair should use this product. It's not for people with straight hair, of course, but i think it could tone down the frizz of anyone's hair. I feel like i spent a fortune on it. It's just great. it feel's very light so i don't know how it would work on very curly hair but i have wavy to curly hair and it just tones my hair. Doesn't make it weighted down, just toned down and modest looking. It's amazing.
I think everyone should understand that this is like the best lotion ever. I can't say anything bad about it. To me, it's just the standard. It's like vaseline jelly, just someone everyone must have. It works on the body and face, perfectly. When i used to have dry skin, this didn't have enough moisture for me, but now i have normal/oily skin and it's perfect. This is my holy grail lotion, enough said.
I have gotten this product like 4 times already and have been using it for a while. It's simply wonderful. It takes off all my makeup and leaves my skin feeling very fresh. I have oily skin so this is perfect for it. I DO NOT recommend this for dry skin, ONLY OILY SKIN. It is fairly strong but i think there is another product from this line for sensitive skin. The packaging is great but not for travel because it doesn't lock completely (i have spilled a few times). When i first pump it into my hands, it's this magical silvery, beautiful substance (i like to think it's unicorn blood haha) When i start rubbing it into my hands, it foams up, then i apply it only my face and yea, it's great. The only problem with this stuff is that if i'm wearing a lot of makeup, i'd have to repeat and use this twice to get rid of all of it. However, it does remove all of it! i don't have to worry about that, even my waterproof eyeliner, and it doesn't hurt my eyes much at all. With that said however, i do go through these pretty quickly, and it helps that it's inexpensive. I used to use the clinique cleanser and hands down this one's better (although it doesn't last longer) I don't think i'm going to buy it after i finish my last bottle because i'm going to try an acne preventing cleaner. (having acne has nothing to do with this, it does have to do with me not taking care of my skin) if you have NORMAL/combination,OILY skin, this product is GREAT! (ALSO, it does not prevent acne)
This is an amazing color and the quality, as always, is amazing. I have darker skin so a darker blush is the only kind that will show well. This is the perfect color for me and it looks so natural. It also stays put on my face and isn't too noticeable. The only reason i wouldn't buy this again is because it's a bit expensive. I only got it because i got my makeup done at make and i had to buy somethings worth 50 dollars. However, if you're willing to spend this much money, Go For It! I found a similar color in drugstore brands, although it doesn't have the same sheerness or quality of mac.
This product is great. I have dark skin and it's very difficult to find a concealer that matches my skin tone. Revlon does a great job of making products that fit a wide range of colors. This product is very creamy and goes on very smooth. I use it under my foundation and it does a good job of covering my acne scars. Now, the reason i use it under my foundation is because it doesn't have a yellowing undertone for my skin. It doesn't quite match my skin tone but that's okay. Something else i didn't quite like about this product is that when i use it under my eyes( which have bags and dark circles) it doesn't do a good job of concealing. When it's on top of my dark circles, it just sits on top without covering up. It created this ugly grey/yellow color which i don't like. and using more just makes it look even worse. However, it's a great product for everything else. I love the creaminess and the packaging. Basically, it's creamy, goes on smooth, covers up acne-scars, not so much dark circles, good for minimal covering, and it lasts a long time. The reason i wouldn't buy this again, is the fact that it doesn't have thick coverage. I need a good concealer that will cover my dark circles and this just isn't the one. However, i might buy it again just for my acne scars because it does a great job with that!
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer - Noir
debbiechongo 8/14/2011 1:41:00 PM
This product is really great! It comes with a smudger and sharpener, which is really great. When i put it on, it's very creamy and it goes on smooth. I am usually very good at putting on eyeliner, and i have to admit, it was a little difficult to use this eyeliner. Maybe it's just because i'm so used to using liquid eyeliner and marker eyeliner. It could also be the fact that i don't often use the sharpener (because it wastes product! haha) What i absolutely love about this product is that it stays on all day, and it looks the same as when you first applied it. I also love the natural(er) look of pencil eyeliner versus liquid. I've been using this very often lately and it's just something that i don't have to worry about anymore. Usually i'd worry if it smudges, flaked off, is uneven, or looks too dark. This is one of the better eyeliners and it feels like it was expensive. It was about 7 bucks but i'd say it was worth it. I also heard the revlon colorstay eyeliner is great but i haven't tried that yet.
I can't say anything bad about this product. When i put it on, it matches my skin perfectly since there is a wide color range, it goes on smooth, it's very blend-able, it's not too thick or thin, it doesn't have a bad smell, it's not too yellow or dull, it stays on all day, it is smooth, the color STAYS and doesn't budge even when you touch it. The packaging isn't amazing, but it's not bad. It's just that there's no pump, but it doesn't really matter because the foundation comes out quickly, unlike others (like the covergirl ones) I am just very happy with this product and i think it's the best drugstore foundation. I think it's the fact that there is such a variety of different colors and even the choice of normal or oily skin. I find that the best way to apply this foundation is with a makeup brush(not sponge of stippling brush). I also find that it looks very NATURAL, after 15 minutes of application. It covers my acne scars, and if i want ultimate cover-up, i use it twice around problem areas. The thing with this is that although it is a liquid at first, it dry's quickly, which is why it stays very dry. It stays on matte all day and i think everyone should try it. It feels like i bought an expensive foundation when it's only like 13 dollars.
