This is a beautiful shade for Spring and Summer. You definitely have to apply 2 coats to get the desired color, but its SO worth it. I've recieved tons of comments and I purchased it from Amazon.com for like $3.
I LOVE this flat iron! I too, bought it from recommendations on Folica.com and I have yet to be disappointed. Unlike the chi iron, the plates have what they describe as "dynamic alignment" which ensures that equal pressure is applied to all the hair being pulled through so damage is prevented! It also has super shiny plates that add shine to my hair! It takes me literally 10 minutes to flat iron my whole head (and I have LONG hair) with this tool and Morrocan Oil product, and the price is right!!
Hair Removal -Unlisted Brand - Skintimate Shaving Gel

MY go-to shaving cream. I really prefer nothing else. I have senstitive skin and this creates a great emoliant and protects me from the razor. :)
I used this for about 2 years to straighten my hair and I loved it. It made my hair soft and protected it from the heatof the flat iron. I would recommend this product, however if you have frizz-prone hair or coarse hair, I would use Morrocan Oil. I switched after finding MO, but the silk infusion will always be a great back-up!
This is my absolute favorite hair product. It's great to put on when you're letting your hair air dry, great as a base before applying curling products, and best for straightening. The smell is amazing! I actually had a man in a grocery store line sniff my hair, tell me how amazing it smells, and ask me where he could buy some for his wife. I usually get a compliment everytime I use it- it's THAT great smelling. Despite the smell, the product is best as an aid before blow drying or straightening with a flat iron. I wash my hair, use a quarter size amount for my long hair, smooth thru then blow dry before running my hair through a flat iron. It keep the frizzies away, adds shine, and it does not leave residue or make your hair oily like other products. The only con is the bottle it comes in. Since I would sometimes over-pour, I bought a small squeeze bottle from sally's with a small tip instead.
This is the best clinical strength womans deodorant I've tried. The scents are not too strong, it keeps me dry (and I sweat easily), and the protection does not wear off throughout the day. It is definitely worth the $8

This is a great body wash that creates a rich lather and makes my skin feel silky smooth after my shower. The best part? It leaves an extra fine shimmer on my skin that lasts all day.
Wow! This is by far my favorite drugstore mascara. Not only does it apply very nicely without clumping lashes together, but it lengthens and gives lashes a defined voluminous look. I have gotten compliments about my mascara from everyone- grocery store shopping, my hairdresser, family, friends, and the best part? I can usually get it on sale or buy one, get one 50% off at walgreens! try it! You will not be disappointed.
Although the color was wayyy too dark for my fair skin, it seemed like a great summer foundation because it was light, smooth and set very nicely. If you are very fair as I am, even after some sun and a tan, even the lightest shade made me look too dark, so be careful. It was a little pricey for a drugstore moisturizer, but the packaging was very nice and would be super simple to throw in a bag. In te end, my suggestion is if you're looking to hold on to that summer vacation tan, get rimmel's bronzer power- its my fav!
This is a great product for us fair girls because it does not turn us orange or make us look glittery. It's a great matte bronzer that gives just the subtle glow of spending time in the sun. It is buildable too. It's great for puting over liquid foundation as well as applying blush overtop or using a shine control powder as well. A must-buy for the summer!!!
I always have one of these in my shower. Not only is the smell fantastic, but the product really does a great job moisturizing and making my hair silky. I have course curly, and frizz-prone hair. I like to use this every 2 days or so alternating with my daily conditioner to control my crazy waves. The packaging is great, allowing you to use all of it, down to the last drop, and the price couldn't be better!
This is by far, my favorite thing in my make-up bag. I never knew how much better and more evenly my foundation could be applied until I got one of these. The price is a little steep, but it is SO WORTH the money!! The best part? Your make-up will honestly look fresh and last ALL DAY. Go get yours!

I use this in Light Buff and I think it does a good job in eliminating shine and creating an even look to my oily t-zone. I use in with Lancome liquid foundation. One of my stand-byes for sure!
I have always been a Lancome fan, so when I got the little sample size in the free gift years ago, I knew this was something great! I have long, curly eyelashes and I struggle to find something that doesn't clump mine together or make me look like a drag queen. Ladies, this is it. It's not heavy, lasts ALL day and is easy to remove. I have tried others, but this by far is my fav.
