Treatments -L'Oreal - Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm
herbgurl82 5/2/2013 9:58:00 PM
Overall this treatment helped strengthen my very fine strands due to the keratin, and ceramides. This is a PROTEIN treatment for your hair. What I have found with this treatment is that it works best as the first step of a two part routine. If you do a protein treatment on your hair, you MUST follow with a moisturizing treatment, or your hair will have the texture of a brillo pad. Followed with a super rich conditioner (L'Oreal's Nature's Therapy Mega Moisture is the one that I use but any moisture rich one will do, I imagine,) your hair will look and feel strong and soft! The only cons for me are the smell, which is nasty, and lingers, and the fact that it comes in a tub. Luckily this product is so thick it stays in the jar of knocked over, unlike other conditioners I could name, but a tube or bottle is so much easier to work with.
Lip Treatments -Cover Girl - NatureLuxe lip balm in Marble

Very faint pink tone, but very very shiny. Only lasts about 2 hours tops on me, but I tend to smush my lips together a lot while wearing gloss, so that may play into my wear time. I probably would not purchase again, since chapstick has the same effect on me.
Shampoo -Alberto Vo5 - Tea Therapy Healthful Green Tea Shampoo

I hate to be the downer on the otherwise positive reviews, but I have been using this product for a few weeks now, and it has left me with a horrible case of dandruff, and a super itchy, flakey scalp. I am starting to think that sulfates are a definite no-no for me... On the positive side, it is cheap, and it smelled lovely.
Foundations -Cover Girl - Natureluxe Liquid Silk Foundation

Why on earth did they discontinue this foundation?Such a nice formula- dewy, but not too shiny! It has more of a tinted moisturizer feel to it, though you have to be sure to exfoliate and moisturize very well before applying or it will cling to all the dry patches on your face, and "pill". Not fun!
Lipstick -Maybelline - Rum Riche Color Sensational

This is a pretty lipstick that pulls brownish red on me. My only complaint is that it tends to feather a LOT, so I have to fuss with lipliner, and prep my lips with powder or something, which seems fussy to me. Edit: This actually looks really nice blotted down to a stain.
Lipstick -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Honey

I loved this dusty pink color at first sight. It looked like a great option as a MLBB shade to slap on for busy mornings. Sadly, I seem to be one of those that it morphs color on, turning into a hot fuschia shade. Yuck!
Love this mask. The smell is divine! When I have really bad acne, I mix it with a pinch of salicylic acid gel or benzyl peroxide, and leave it on overnight. When I wash it off in the morning, my pores are practically invisible!
I am reviewing the Plush Plum shade. Such a pretty color! It goes on shimmery at first, but soon morphs into a very nice MLBB. My only complaint is that if your lips have dry patches, it clings to them, making the color go on patchy. The packaging is also irritating. However, minus these two things, I love this product.
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Adore

Very pretty bricky, berry red color. Looks pretty topped with clear gloss. There is some shimmer in there, which along with the minty smell, occasionally gets on my nerves, but it is nice for a night out. Expensive for the amount of product you get in the tube.
This is an okay foundation. I dislike the glass bottle, and wish it had a pump, but other then that, it is okay for a sheer foundation. More like a tinted moisturizer in my opinion. It's nice for lazy days when all I want to do is throw on foundation, mascara, and lipcolor.
Lips -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Sugar Plum

Pretty color in the tube, however it did not work with my coloring. The purplish fuschia hue was a little too cool for my coloring. Would not buy again because of this.
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy
herbgurl82 1/8/2013 11:42:00 AM
Stay away from this product! I have very thin, fine hair, down to my waist, with a very dry flaky scalp. I bought this hoping that it would clear up my scalp. However, after about three washes, my hair started to fall out in clumps. I don't know if I am sensitive to sulfates, or not (I had been using sulfate free shampoos for about a year prior to this) but something in this shampoo just did not agree with my scalp, and I am still dealing with the fallout...
Mascara -Almay - One Coat Nourishing Mascara Triple Effect

Got this on clearance at my grocery store. Love it. Works even better then the other One Coat mascara that i was using. Makes my lashes long without making them all stiff and gooky looking. Would repurchase.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Fig Jam
herbgurl82 3/25/2012 2:44:00 PM
Looks scary dark brown in the tube, but when lightly swiped on the lips, it turns a gorgeous brickish reddish color that is lovely for everyday! I will be repurchasing for sure! I knocked off a lippy for the texture of the lip butter, how soft it is, and how it winds up very misshapen after a few applications. I don't get the comparisons to Clinique's Black Honey lipstick, which to me is more of a winey/purplely/burgundy hue then bricky red, but to each his own. Edit: This looks fabulous layered over the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Adore. And it makes it much longer lasting!
Love, love, love this mascara! While there is a bit of a learning curve with how to use the large brush, it gives very natural volume, and length with no clumping. Great for an everyday mascara!
