I LOVE this product! I use this everyday. It smells great and always makes my skin feel silky smooth. The only downside of this product is the packaging. Even when you think it is closed completely, it still manages to spill, but if you keep it upright--it shouldn't be a problem. If you are traveling with it, make sure you double bag it...it will spill!
Shampoo -John Frieda - Sheer Blonde Highlighting Shampoo
ll22 6/25/2012 11:20:00 AM
I bought this on sale at CVS just to try it. I normally have light brown hair with natural highlights that I add a few blonde highlights to a few times a year. During the summer months, I don't highlight my hair because the sun tends to bleach it out, but I wanted to try this shampoo to boost some of the blonde in my hair and hopefully to remove some of its brassiness. I was pleasantly surprised with this product. Overall, it removed a good chunk of the brassiness in one wash, and it enhanced the blonde highlights in my hair. I hope to see continual results with it the more I use it. I would like to use it every other wash to prevent it from becoming too blonde. UPDATE: I have used this product about five times now, and can definitely notice a difference in the color. A few people have even asked me if I dyed my hair lighter, so the product is definitely working.
Hair Styling Tools -Remington - T-Studio Pearl Curling Wand

This product is phenomenal!! Not only is the price great, but the waves/curls that this wand makes are great, too!! I have dry, thick, coarse hair that never holds a curl...but this product has changed all that! This is one of the best purchases I have made in a while!
I love this brush! I use it as an eyeliner brush and because it's so thin & precise..it makes a nice clean line! It's the best makeup tool I own!
I really like this product! After I use it, I notice a significant difference in the reduction of my undereye circles & even in puffiness! My eyes look brighter and more awake. I even returned my Laura Mercier Secret Brightener I just purchased because it did a much better job! I do still use LM Secret Concealer #2 over it because it's a little too light on it's own..but very cooling and soothing! Will definitely repurchase!!
I love this palette! After spending months lusting after it, I finally went out and bought it! I'm so happy I finally bought it! I have lighter coloring with blue eyes and these shimmery neutrals look great! And for 12 full-size eyeshadows, the price isn't bad either...I will definitely be repurchasing!
I am on the fence with this lip gloss. I really like the smell, the packaging, and it doesn't feel too goopy on my lips (which is important), but I am not sure how I feel about the color..I bought "Pink Blossom" and while it is a pretty color, I am not too crazy about the way it shows up on my lips. It is kind of thick looking and doesn't spread evenly. It almost just sits on my lips and is not sheer enough for me. I think if I were to add a clear gloss over it, it would have much better results for me personally.
I have tried everything on my dry, thick, course hair (both expensive and inexpensive brands), but I have been using this consistently over the last year with the conditioner and the hair mask. I LOVE this stuff! It makes my hair smooth and silky, and I don't have to add any additional product to detangle/smooth out my hair!
I bought this cream with with high expectations considering I have KP on my arms, and I read that this would be helpful in treating it. I WAS WRONG! Not only did this not work in clearing up those tiny, red bumps on my upper arms, but it actually made it worse. It made me itch & made more bumps come out. The girls at LUSH were really understanding, and I was able to exchange it. Instead, I got "Sympathy for the Skin," which seems to be MUCH better on my skin.
Liquid -Clarins - Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation
ll22 5/29/2011 3:00:00 PM
I bought this product after the MA tried it on me, and I LOVED the way my skin looked, but after I got home and used it the next day, I didn't quite like the way my skin looked with it on, and I tried it several days in a row, but still got the same caked-on, mask-like look. I am not sure if it was the products that the MA put on before the foundation or what, but I didn't get the glowy look I had hoped for. I think it was too heavy for what I usually wear.
Lip Treatments -Clarins - Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm
ll22 4/13/2011 5:09:00 PM
I have VERY dry, cracked lips and this stuff is great! I feel like I have tried every lip product there is, but this stuff actually works instantly, and stays on too! It is a little on the pricer side for a lip balm, but if it does the job, it is worth it, instead of continually buying cheaper products that do not work!
Cleansers -Clinique - Take the Day Off Cleansing Milk
ll22 4/9/2011 7:23:00 AM
I love Clinique products, but was disappointed with this one and will be returning...it really wouldn't take any makeup off my skin, but instead left and oily residue and some red bumps all over my face. This is surprising considering I have been using Clinique for about 10 years and never had a problem!!
Eyeliner -Clinique - Cream liner Chocolate Lustre / Cocoa Shimmer Duo
ll22 3/6/2011 6:59:00 PM
I love these two eyeliners seperately so to get them together is great! These cream eyeliners are the only ones I wear...they go on effortlessly and the color lasts all day, plus they're subtle enough if you're looking for just a soft, defined eye!!
I absolutely LOVE this stuff...I have really dry, dull skin and this product does wonders for my skin!! For me, this is one of the few products that does exactly what it says it is supposed to do...I am already on my third bottle of this product!!
I love Clinique products...and this one is hands down my favorite! I use the dry combo one for my extra-dry skin and its great!! It softens my skin and the SPF is a great bonus!! The only downside is that it comes in a jar...but the product itself is well worth it!!
