kola626 2/15/2013 9:16:00 PM
I purchased this product about 2 weeks ago. I have 3a/3b fine curly hair and I don't like to use a lot of sticky gel. I applied this gel to on top of my Shea Moisture Biotin milk. and under my Shea Moisture Souffle. This gave me great curl formation and made my hair really shiny and defined. I totally love this product the price was really cheap I spent $3 for a really large bottle which was great for the price. the CON, it gave me shrinkage. I tried to work with the portion for no matter what I got shrinkage. Its not too bad since my hair is pretty long but I guess I will get use to it. If after a month, I still am in love with it I will be buying at least 2 or 3 more. Usually products that I end up making them my HG end up being discontinued.
Conditioner -TRESemme - Color Revitalize Conditioner

I have 3B / 3A fine color treated hair. I have colored ever since I was 15. I am now 32 and love this conditioner. I use it after I shampoo or cowash my hair then use it as a styling product. I apply it to very wet hair and comb through with a deman brush. I let it air dry for about 3 hrs. I dont use heat on my hair, only every 3 months when I want to wear it straight. I love the results of this product. My curls are define, sofft and bouncy. I love this product. Plus it only cost about $4 for a 32oz bottle on sale, either at Walmart or Target.
I love this product, I have Curly, Color Treated 3A/3B hair. I use this as my DT once a week, with a hooded dryer for 45 mins and cool off for 15 mins. This really moisturizes my hair, leaving it soft and bouncy shiney curls. Also, this is pretty cheap I got it at Walmart for 3.99 and I had a $1 off coupon so I got it for $3 which is not bad at all for those of us in a budget. I have really thick curly hair and I use it every week. My first bottle has lasted me a lil over 1 month, not bad for $3. Will buy this product again!!
Styling Products -Suave - Professionals Healthy Curls Curl Enhancing Spray Gel
kola626 9/30/2009 10:47:00 PM
I really love this product, I use it on my dry hair to reshape my curls on 2nd day hair and sometimes I use a diffuser and it makes my hair so shiney and curls are defined, all I have to do is decrunch it and I'm out the door. I got this at BigLots for $1.50 for 8oz it was an awesome deal so I bought 4 of them. As, time went buy I fell in love with this spray gel and went back to Biglots to get more, I was so upset when I didnt see any there. The lady at the counter told me that they disconitnued this product and Biglots will no longer carry it, I'm so upset. They really need to bring is out again I will miss it once its gone.
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
kola626 8/22/2009 4:48:00 PM
After hearing raves about Too Faced Shadow Insurance I decided to get it. I am in LOVE. I dont wear eyeshadow too much but I do wear colorfuly eyeliner on the top and lower lash line and I usually get it all smudge under my eye, not anymore every since I purchase Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Even though the product is expensive at $17 I find this product a really good buy because I only use a tiny mini-pea size under my eye then wait a few seconds then apply my liner on my lower lash line, I dont get any smudges or anything and it stays on my lower lash line. So, I will love this forever!!! or until they make something better like always!!
Conditioner -Clairol - Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Conditioner
kola626 4/25/2009 9:28:00 PM
I bought this conditioner because I wanted to try the CurlyGirl Condition only method. Overall I love it. Its pretty cheap I got it for like $3 on sale and I use it every other day as my leave'n/ styling conditioner it last me awhile too. I have 3B curls and I need a lot of mositure in order to keep it healthy. This conditioner does its job and for only $3 I cant beat that, plus for some reason I really like the fact that its blue, its something different.
I really like this eyeliner, I have it in BootBlack and its my favorite eyeliner. I'm not too crazy about the creamliners because for me they dry out too fast plus it takes me too long to apply, since I like a really straight and thin line. I like this eyeliner better because I can just put it on so fast and I'm out the door. It stays on and its really black until you take it off. I will purchase this again, even though its expensive I have tried all others and always come down to this one. I've been using it for 5 yrs now.
Makeup Brushes -Everyday Minerals - Long handled Kabuki
kola626 12/20/2008 9:38:00 PM
I love this brush ,I have it for over a yr now and I wash it every week, it still stays sooooo soft. I use it with my EDM foundation and I adore it. Plus the fact that it isnt that large, you can still pack it in your purse and go!! Its $10 but still that price is good enough for me knowing that it will remain as soft even after a yr of use.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - HIP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Midnight Blue
kola626 12/19/2008 10:16:00 PM
I bought this product in order to change my usual MAC black fluidline. I am glad that I got it, I wanted to try another color besides the normal black and this color is soooo pretty. I have big brown eyes and when I put this liner on I went to work and everyone said how wonderful this color looked on me. They said it's my color!! love it. I've been using this eyeliner for about 6 months and its a bit drying the fact that I do have to dip into it a few more times then I usually do the MAC fluidline but still I love it because of the color. I just purchased the eyeliner as a BOGO so now I am trying the Eggplant and the Teal. I do love all these colors though. MAC is too expensive for me right now since I have to cut back on my spending...
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Vitamin E Moisturizing Nail & Cuticle Oil
kola626 12/19/2008 10:05:00 PM
I adore this Cuticle Oil, I use it at night everyday. I use to get my nails done every week and nothing would make them grow, then I tried this stuff for like 2 weeks and I could see that my nails were getting stronger and longer. I have been using this oil for about a yr now and I love it, its my HG for nails!!! I'm not that pricey I get it at the drugstore for like $6 and plus its a great buy when they have BOGO's. The 0.45 oz bottle last you about 5 months. The cap is not too safe, since you have to make sure to tighten it well to ensure that it doesnt leak... it has happened to my in my purse!!! :0( but other than that I Love this stuff!!!
I just got the NARS Blush in Deep Throat, and I adore it. I have Warm-Med Beige skin color ( NC42- MAC) . My friend told me to try Orgasm but when I did it was too shimmery for me so I found it to be too much of a pinky shade for me, ok for nite out but not for work. I ended up buying the Deep Throat and this one is perfect for me, not too much shimmer and you just need to swipe your brush one time and that's it. Yes, I agree this blush is expensive for $25 but since you only use a lil bit of it, it will last a while. My friend wears her blush everday and it takes her over 4 months to buy another one, so $25 over 4 months sounds like a good deal to me!! Plus you will love it... Will surely buy this product again.
I love the Covergirl Lash Blast mascara, I have it in black not waterproof and I adore it. It curls, lengthens, and thickens my lashes. Everytime I put it on my friends ask me if I have false lashes on...hehe I love it!! The tube is sooo cute, orange and you cant miss it. I love the thick wand since I have pretty big eyes I need something big, I hate the little wands they dont work well on me. I have used MAC's Zoomlash and FiberLash for years then a couple of months ago I got the DiorShow mascara because of the huge wand but didnt like the fact that it didnt hold a curl in my lashes, until I came across Covergirl's LASH BLAST....woohoo!! Its pretty cheap I got it for like $7 at CVS and will purchase again. I'm waiting on the Covergirl BOGOs in order to repurchase.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
kola626 12/17/2008 9:30:00 PM
This is my HG for moisturizers for the summer. I got this a really long time ago about 5 yrs ago as a gift and fell in love ever since. It works wonders for my skin in the summer but in the winter I need something a lil thicker like a cream instead of a lotion. I will surely purchase this again. It goes for $11 for the tube and it last me 3 months. I would adore this product if they only had it in a cream form for the winter!!
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover
kola626 12/17/2008 9:23:00 PM
I use this eyemakeup remover a lot, I wear eyeliner and sometimes eyeshadows and I love how this removers all my eye makeup so quickly with lil or no hassel. Yes, it does leave a lil Oil residue but I dont mind it at all since I wash my face right afterwards. I know a lot of ppl have a problem with the left over residue but its not Oil its Glycerin. The only thing I dont like about this product is the cap and the fact that it has an opening too large, so if you dont tighten the cap it will open and spill all over. When ever I have to repurchase it I tranfser it into another container that has a pushup cap that snaps open and releases only a lil bit of the product so this way I have total control of how much comes out. It cost about $8 at the drugstores but I always wait for the BOGOs and stockup. Other then that I really love how this product removes my eye makeup... Will purchase again!!!
I have the WetnWild MegaSlicks lipgloss in #569A ( Candy Apple) which I adore. I got it on a BOGO at CVS and it goes for $1.99, cant beat that price. Its more of a pinky shade goes on sheer on me but with a hint of pink. I use it on my everyday looks as well as when I wear my smokey eye. Its not sticky or doesnt smell like anything but a lipgloss. I mean for the price you cant beat that. I used MAC lipglasses for many years and just didnt like the sticky feeling, plus hated it when the wind blew my hair and my hair would stick to my lipgloss....so hate that feeling!! but with the WetnWild lipgloss it doesnt stick to my hair. I will surely purchase this again in fact many of my friends are getting it as stocking stuffers..Everyone needs more lipglosses :0)
