Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner

I usually switch around brands when buying pencil eyeliners, but this might be my new HG! It's super dark, creamy, and glides on to my waterline. LOVE IT. To add to it's incredibleness...it lasted a really long time! It seriously blows all other drugstore pencil eyeliners out of the water. The only con (as many reviewers have already pointed out) - the packaging. A self sharpening version of this would be beyond compare. The pros significantly outweigh the cons for me, and I will continue to repurchase!
I bought this for my boyfriend who normally uses my conditioner to shave his head and beard. After using it once or twice, he said that it worked well but wasn't amazing or anything. Slightly disappointed in his response I gave it a try. The consistency of it had me a bit skeptical, but after shaving my GOODNESS my legs felt soooo insanely smooth! They felt soft & smooth for almost two days straight (which was a first for me). I had always thought spending even $2 on shaving cream was a waste, convinced that conditioner worked just as well. But Beard Lube has become a must have splurge for me. I know spending $30 on shaving cream seems a bit ridiculous but I'm in love with this stuff. The packaging with the pump is fantastic. The smell is clean and minty. A little truly goes a long way and I feel like my razors last much longer. I have repurchased several times and will continue to do so!
After trying dozens of foundations I always come back to Revlon Colorstay. I work outside on a golf course and I have very oily skin, so finding a foundation that doesn't melt off within minutes is amazing!! The golden beige color matches my skin tone perfectly, and the medium-full coverage leaves my face looking flawless for hours. It doesn't even smudge or smear. Using a damp sponge to apply works wonders. It does dry rather quick so blend it out fast. I constantly get compliments on my complexion, which has NEVER happened before. The negatives of Revlon Colorstay: Due to the phenomenal staying power, be prepared to spend a little extra time washing it off. It comes in a glass bottle but the most disappointing part is that it doesn't come with a pump.
I LOVE this foundation!! With all my old foundations (even expensive brands) I would have to use tons of powder and oil blotting sheets throughout day. Since using Colorstay, I don't have to run to the bathroom every 10 minutes to touch up my makeup! It leaves my skin completely shine free pretty much ALL DAY. It doesn't rub off like 9/10 of my old foundations. And I don't even use powder over the Colorstay foundation. It's provides perfect medium to full coverage. It covers my acne scars and redness very well and gives me flawless looking skin! It hasn't caused me to breakout at all, as some occasional foundations do. I've even been really bad and slept with it on.. Oops. Applying it was a bit tricky at first. It dries QUICK, so I do one section of my face at a time using a damp sponge. I don't think it looks cakey at all... It doesn't have a very natural look, but I don't find it to ever look cakey on me. Removing it is quite difficult, but I don't mind a couple extra minutes in the shower for such a great foundation! In conclusion, if you want a medium or full coverage, matte, very long-lasting foundation, I'd reccomend Revlon Colorstay!
I'm 20 with pretty oily skin and a few pimples on occasion. I also have some acne scaring from my early teens. Pros: It brightens up my skin. Evens my skin tone. Calms redness. Get's rid of pimples quickly. Helps with oily skin. It has a nice lather, so you don't need to use much. No artificial color or fragrances. Cons: Expensive! Hasn't helped with blackheads. Hasn't helped with large pores. I still get small occasional blemishes. Overall I like it. The only big downfall for me is the price. The product didn't "blow my mind" or anything for $50.
This is my new favorite body wash! I personally love the smell... It is more masculine with a spicy, woody, light scent. It leaves my skin super soft and the scent lingers for a short while.The packaging with the pump is awesome. It even works well for shaving and bubble baths. I'll DEFINITELY buy this again!!
I've been using this product for about a week and I love it!! I have very oily skin with occasional small breakouts. I've been putting the serum on every night right after cleansing. Since using this product, my skin is more clear than it's been in forever! My face is bright, clear, my skin tone has evened out, and my pores look smaller! I can't wait to see if it continues to work. The packaging is great. The little bottle is super cute and durable with a great pump. The only con I can think of, it hasn't helped my skin's oiliness. It is a little pricy, but I'd buy it again and recommend this product to a friend!

I LOVE this shampoo and conditioner!! It makes my hair so soft and shiny. It also leaves my hair smelling awesome, even my boyfriend noticed. He told me my hair smelled, "like a hippy, like incense something." Haha I usually use John Frieda Brilliant Brunette, but I'm so glad I found this stuff on sale and tried it out! The only con I can think of is the price. It's a little much for the small amount of product. I used the whole bottle of conditioner in less than a week. The conditioner is kind of runny, so it's easy to use a lot, especially if you have a lot of hair.
