I bought this at Sephora and after trying several of the other SpaRitual nail colors I must say this is hands down my favorite!!! It's a gorgeous, subtle pink with a jelly finish. This is what I consider a PERFECT nail polish and I don't feel as guilty using it since it doesn't contains some of the nasty chemicals others have
Conditioner -Acure Organics - Moroccan Argan Oil + Argan Stem Cell Conditioner

LOVE this stuff! I bought this at my local Pharmaca store. I damaged my hair using a horrible reformulated Redken conditioner and bought this to repair it. At least I thought it was a shot in the dark. I am impressed! My hair LOVES this stuff and Acure has a new customer ! I'm going back to try other products. This stuff made my hair soft, bouncy, and very very shiny :D
UGH!!!! I'm shocked by any good reviews this line has! Let me start by saying that I used to use this a long time ago and always loved it. I remember my hair being buttery soft afterwards. Fast forward several years and, WELL, FORGET ABOUT IT! Apparently I missed the memo about Redken changing the formula. *SMH* I bought this 2 days ago after running out of my normal conditioner. Well, today is day 2 of using and I look at my hair this morning and realize all of my hair is breaking off. BREAKING OFF. Yes, completely snapped all over the top of my hair. WTF? I haven't changed my diet, I drink almost TOO much water, I exercise everyday, I eat amazing, I don't dry my hair or use straighteners and I certainly am not breaking or cutting off my own hair. Shame on you Redken for using all the CRAP ingredients that are in this stuff. This stuff ruined my hair. This stuff is the equivalent of eating a big mac and fries everyday and thinking it's gonna work out. YUCK!!!!!! In the trash is where it's going.
Let me start by saying that I LOVE the color that this product deposits. After laying in the sun during the summer my dark brown hair turns brassy. This product quickly eliminates that. There is however something about this that my hair does not like. 1) It stains everything. Be careful, it can get on the shower walls if you have long hair like me. It also stains the palm of my hands. No big deal , just means the color is intense. 2) It turned my hair to straw!!!! Horrible, dull, awful , stiff as paper ! Not good. I know it was the culprit because it started as soon as I used this and stopped as soon as I stopped using it. 3)Oddly enough it seems like I lost a ton of hair whenever I used this. It didn't work for me , but hey, not everything reacts the same :) I'm now officially done using Aveda products (until the next time I decide to try out something new ;)
I used Aveda products as a teenager and recently went back to experiment again. I bought this and the Black Malva. I hate to blame my hair that feels like straw on this but my hair has never been color treated, I hardly blow dry and I eat all of my vitamins. This stuff was horrible on my usually striking ultra soft chocolate brown hair. I am so glad I am done with the bottle so I can move on. Sorry Aveda ;(
WOW. I'm shocked that these actually worked! A friend of mine teased me and said "don't you realize that they stop working as soon as you stop using them?!" Well, duh, doesn't everything!? I mean, not even botox lasts. I am completely satisfied looking like a weirdo when I go to bed to have the confidence the next day that the Frownies has brought to me. I am shocked and before I bought them I was skeptical- embarrassed even to buy them but wow, even my neighbor asked if I had work done and I've only been wearing these for 3 nights. Complete erased my crows feet! Love :)
Eyeliner -NARS - Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner - Via Veneto

Grrrrr ...Nars Larger than Life. In theory I love this product.... In real life I hate this product.... It took me forever before finally googling how to sharpen this eyeliner. When I followed instructions to sharpen, very carefully might I add, it crumbled and broke off. Twice. A huge chunk of it , too. I am on my way to Sephora to exchange this today!!!! I love Nars and really wanted to love it but I hate it!
My holy grail go-to foundation!! Finally! Gorgeous, flawless, dewy, everything I ever dreamed of in foundation. I stumbled upon this randomly one day while shopping with my mom. She insisted on buying me something I agreed to get this foundation. I never have ever worn foundatIon but this stuff is incredible. I always look for an excuse to wear it because it makes my skin look like a million bucks. It also looks better as the day go by , which I love! I apply in the morning and come night time my face is still immaculate!
This nail polish wasn't and isn't streaky at all for me. I loved it so much after getting a manicure i went to hunt it down. Its a light sheer pink that reminds me of a pink jelly bean. very pretty, subtle but sexy especially with a tan.
Wow, people must be clueless . I was excited to finally try a product with great ratings that guaranteed an easy to way to bleach my dark arm hair. Initially I was skeptical and boy was I right. This stuff really does bleach your skin and hair from underneath. Ewwwwww, do you realize how bad that is for you!? My gorgeously tanned and toned arms were bleached in the worst way. Think Michael Jackson during his worst bleach job. I never have problems with products but man this one really duped me. I feel so stupid for believing it to begin with. Did I mention it contains carcinogens? And everyone wonders why and how they get cancer! Well, from using products like this! Beware!
When I'm getting ready for a night on the town and after layering a good amount of Nars Laguna bronzer and Bobbi Brown blush in Maui, my skin often looks powdery and matte- exactly what most people look like after applying powders. WELL, after applying my makeup (PRE-Mascara) I close my eyes, spritz myself in the face a few times with this and BAM- I have the most gorgeous glowing, dewy, picture-perfect and still tan face!! It's as it melts all my makeup and bonds it together seamlessly. No foundation lines, streaky bronzer, or ashy eyeshadow!!! It's something I'm willing to splurge on every couple of months! I LOVE this product!!
I really love Jurlique and their skin purifying mask and rose water balancing mist and I really thought I'd be over the moon for this oil too. I have been using it for a few months now and while my forehead seems to be perfectly moisturized, wrinkle free and glowing, my cheeks,chin, and around my nose are all flaking. My skin in that area feels super tight and no matter how much I use my Clarisonic brush to exfoliate, slather on the oil in the shower, my skin is terribly dry. I usually don't have such sensitive skin reactions towards products but I really noticed this one. I will have to buy a second moisturizer to layer on top as other users have suggested. This is definitely not convenient considering I paid almost $50 for the oil alone:(
I LOVE this color! Somewhere between a vampy red and a conservative wine, this color is super flattering on my olive skin complexion. I'm totally hooked on this new OPI formula too, and find it far superior to the Essie polishes that I normally use. Its super easy to apply and comes of easily when ready to change it up. This polish has become my go-to dark red when I'm not feeling the Essie cherry red color Lolipop that I often wear. I will definitely buy again !!
Beautiful bright and super shiny, this color is my go-to red when painting my own nails. It is a retro cherry that looks gorgeous on tan skin in summer or on pale skin in winter. It is quite amazing when paired with a matte red lip for that 70's glam, Yves Saint Laurent look that I love. It doesn't chip, isn't streaky, and is a really thick opaque red that has totally sold me! I love!!
Streaks again! Ahh, I hate that most of Essie's opaque baby pinks are so streaky :( Beautiful bubble gum pink in the bottle but a total mess when painting my nails.
