This shampoo does not lather AT ALL and feels and looks like a conditioner. It barely cleans your hair but does not weigh down your waves. I am having a hard time getting used to it.. You need to mix it with another shampoo so that it can spread on the hair. The way it is it just sits in a clump and won't spread. I would not buy this. There are a lot better low lather sulphate free shampoos by L'oreal for example that are cheaper and work better. Sadly this is crap....There is low suds and then there is NO suds. why not just call it what it is....a conditioner.
I have wavy colored hair and it is pretty healthy. this is by far the worst professional shampoo i have ever used in my life....it gets rid of my waves, dries out my hair, leaves a film on my hair and tangles it terribly. when i use the blonde glam of their other shampoos my hair is just perfect. this is worse than a drug store shampoo. sadly i bought one Liter. i think i will use it as hand soap.

I am a hair product junkie and have tried them all from drug store stuff to very expensive stuff for my wavey thick hair. this gel is amazing as it holds very well without stifnees and is reactivated the next day with a bit of water spray. it also thickens my hair so it looks like beach hair. The scent is miminal so that is good for those who are sensiitvie to scents and it is alcohol free. Next to Moroccan oil curl cream this is a must have.

This is an extremely sophisticated scent and it is not for those who like only florals. this is well balanced and at the same time smells very clean. it is very similiar to Coco Noir but much more of chypre and not as sweet and powdery as CN. It is a perfume you put on when you won't take no for an answer from a man. Believe me, they won't say no.
i have mixed feelings about this one. I love original Cco but too heavy to wear all the time. so this is a good compromise. it goes on very heavy but he dry down is heavenly. Having said that it just smells like Coco diluted out. I sampled but not sure if I will buy a whole bottle. very rich and sophisticated. Nothing like Premiere which made me weak in the knees. the bottle is beautiful and I think one must wear it with business suits.
well, it is one of those perfumes that you smell and just love BUT then you spray it on and get sick. The top notes are lovely but they are gone in a blink of an eye and then you are left with a very boring, cheap smelling scent you could have bought from Avon 20 years ago. in short CRAP!!!!
Crème -Paula's Choice - RESIST Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation

this is excellent. i have oily/comb skin and i find this lasts all day. it is a full coverage and goes on a bit dry. the colors are very light which i like. it can make some look pasty. i love it because of all the antioxidants it has. it is really a BB cream. I use nothing else but Paula's choice skin care. this foundation is like Lancome's or Estee Lauder's for oily skin. LOVE LOVE!!! a review here said it ran with humidity. I have no idea what that is about. it may be too much moisturizer underneath because this does not move an inch
by far the very best florescent pink anywhere. it is matte and lasts but as all matte lipsticks it does dry out your lips if you do not moisturize. i like to put on a light lip balm like Nivea's and wait a few minutes and then put on this lipstick. I have had people stop me and ask what lipstick i was wearing....yap!

i really love this product. it makes everyone look 5 years younger. however the only draw back is that the brush is unusable and the powder is a bit loose which means it is wasted. but the price is not bad. it is not dirt cheap though. you don't even need a foundation under it but if you do put it over a foundation you look like a movie star. really!!
this is just a crazy good product. nothing else to say. when it is on sale which is often, it is dirt cheap. for those ladies who dream of doing a winged eye but do not have a steady hand, this is your answer....
as a huge perfume fan and one who goes and tries everything new I have to say that this fragrance although well balanced it simply way too old fashioned. It is way too strong like Fracas and Black Orchid. If it was diluted say by 20x it would be lovely. As it is i do not hink anyone should dare wear it. I heard many stores sent their stocks back because people thought it smelled like their grandmother's scent which was Madonna's aim. What do you excpet from Madonna? she wears Fracas and I think Youth Dew.....money does not mean good taste i guess. having said all that, i think it will smell great on darker skin tones. Kim Kardashian has one similiar to it but much more beautiful and lighter. Shame!
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express Turbo Boost Mascara

this used to be my go to mascara but i think they have reformulated it. it still gives beautiful results BUT it flakes into the eye the worst of any mascara i have ever had. if you wear contacts stay away from this one as i have ruined a few contacts. the flakes in this are sharpe and hurt. i consider this the flakiest of flakey.
it is very rare that i stray away form my clinique mascara High Impact. for the first little while i used this mascara it flaked a lot and irritated my eye. but for some reason it is perfect after a few uses. it is the only drug store mascara that works like Lancome Defincils. my lashes are long anyway but i get them very well separated and long. it doesnot thicken too much just a moderat amount. so if you want to try a drug store mascara this is the one. on sale it can be only 7$.

well i have a love hate relationship with this product. hate: i hate the scent, it is very baby powderish and cheap smelling. the pump does not work until the very end of the product so you have to deal with that. since it is so expensive i am pretty mad about that. you have to be careful how much you use or it will be somewhat heavy ont he hair. love: my long waves are well defined and shiney and this product reactivates the next day by just adding a water spray. it works also as a leave in conditioner. it laast forever so being expensive is not that much of a problem. you can not feel it in your hair at all. this is the only hair product i buy repeatedly and i am a hair junkie. Ah, but the stupid scent. some just love it though.so you have to smell it for yourself. i guess i like the flowery more than baby powder.
I love this product and this color. it is light to moderate coverage and glossy but not too high of a shine. this color is great with a smokey eye if you want to achieve that sixities pink-nude lips. this color is somewhat unique in that it is a barbie kind of color. if you are very light to very dark this will look great but if you are medium it will not show up on you. if you like the color but not the shine, apply blot, appy blot again and you will have the most beautiful natural pink.
