I've been using this for about 2 months now and absolutely love it. My hair has never been so healthy, shiny and soft. I have very fine hair which easily gets dried out and/or weighed down and typically when I find something that works for me, it only works for a few days or a week and then it stops. As I said, I've been using this for about 2 months and my hair continues looking great. I use with the Neuma Moisture conditioner.
Styling Products -It's a 10 - Miracle Styling Cream

Holy Grail! I'm surprised there haven't been any reviews for this. I have extremely fine hair that's thinning in the bang and crown area and always struggle with styling it. It's colored, dry and most products either weigh it down, dry it out, or make it stiff and lifeless. I've tried other styling creams (Wen and Bumble and Bumble) and both worked great the first time I used them and that was it. Every other time I tried them they either weighed my hair down or made it dry and lifeless. I've used It's a 10 styling cream 2 days in a row and I think they may be the best 2 hair days I've ever had. One of my coworkers told me yesterday that my hair looked great. I use this on top of Aphogee leave in conditioner and my hair comes out full, fluffy with tons of body. It looks healthy and shiny. And, it maintains my hairstyle all day. I'm trying to grow my hair out and can't wait to see how this works with longer hair. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will continue to work for me. Edit 12/19/2011 - Forgot to update this. After using every day, by about the 5th day my hair got very dry and lifeless. Same thing happens with all styling creams I've tried.
I've loved Obsession since it came out. I was in my early 20s and wore it back then. I've been married for 25 years and have worn loads of perfumes over the years, but this is the only one my husband loves and comments on.

I've only used this once and am in love. It transformed my thin, fine, dull, dry, lifeless hair. Not only did it make it shiny and bouncy, it also had a great volumizing effect.
I got Sellout today and am in love. It's such a beautiful highlighter on the inner part of my lid. Smooth and creamy and blends like a dream. I use this and my other UD shadows over MAC Untitled Paint and they stay all day.

Wow, this is a beautiful shadow. The texture is buttery, soft and smooth. Reminds me of the texture of the old Chanel Shadowlights, which I loved. As far as the color goes, I'm loving it. On me it's a beautiful, shimmery, champagne color. Reminds me a lot of MAC Vanilla pigment, but less messy to use. Now if I can just get my hands on a Naked palette...
Conditioner -Neutrogena - triple moisture deep recovery hair mask

I bought this product a long time ago and used it as a regular conditioner, which really did nothing so it's been sitting in my cabinet for ages. Last week my hair had hit an all time low. It was so dry and lifeless, and wouldn't hold a curl at all. So I dug this out and tried using it as a leave-in and it was amazing. My hair is soft, fluffy, and holds a curl like a dream. I can't remember how much it cost, but whatever it was, it's totally worth it.
I got this with my Clarisonic and was not going to try it because I have very sensitive skin, but when I ran out of my Olay cleanser, I decided to try it. What a pleasant surprise! This, unlike anything else I've tried(except my beloved HG, discontinued Purpose Gentle Foaming Cleanser), takes off my mascara without rubbing and tugging, and doesn't irritate or dry out my skin. I have no idea how much it costs but I plan to repurchase.
Holy freakin' Grail! I absolutely love this. I've been applying Untitled Paint first as a base, then I use this on the lid, then I use Chanel Vega, or some other taupe in the crease. This stays ALL day! I'm really floored by the staying power. I have green eyes and this really makes them pop. I found the color similar to vanilla pigment, which I love, but I prefer creams to powders so am thrilled with this. edit: Well, I wanted to love this but I'm allergic to it. After wearing a few days, my eyes started to burn. I stopped for a few days and tried again and the same thing happened. So sad because I absolutely love how it looks.
I can't believe I haven't written a review of this before. This is my HG blush. This is a perfect match for my skintone. It is the most natural looking blush I've tried. My only complaint is that it's not long lasting and I have to reapply during the day, but it's easy to take with you. I scoop out a small chunk and put it into a little screw top containter and throw it in my makeup bag. I've been using this daily for about 3 years and I don't think I'm even half way through the container. It may be pricey, but you get a LOT of product for the price.
I've used this in the past and for some reason, it didn't impress me. Recently I've used Voluminous and Buxom and thought both were okay. In the past I've tried all of Lancome's formulas and like them, but they always flaked. Well, on a whim when I was in Sephora last week, I picked this up and finally think I've found Holy Grail here! One of the things I love about this is it does a great job curling my lashes and the curl holds all day!
I've searched high and low for a good match for my eyebrows. Most look either too dark or too red. I use this in Ash Blonde and it's perfect! I apply with a soft angled brush and it goes on beautifully and looks so natural. I don't even use the wax. It's expensive though and if I could find a MAC eyeshadow that matched this, I'd switch to the MAC shadow.

The color is perfect MLBB. The formula is moisturizing and creamy and fairly long lasting.

I wanted to love this and actually I do love the way it cleans. It easily removes mascara and leaves my skin soft. But it burns the heck out of my eyes. Not just inside my eyes, but even my lids get sore and tender.
Since Purpose discontinued my holy grail Moisturizing Foaming Cleanser, I've been searching for it's equal - something that easily removes all makeup and leaves my skin soft. This cleans great and removes mascara better than anything else I've tried in the past few years, but it is drying. I'll use up the bottle I have but probably won't repurcase, mainly because I don't want to support a company that discontinued my holy grail cleanser.
