Self Tanners -Fake Bake - flawless self tan liquid
lovebuzz 4/27/2012 2:37:00 AM
I have literally tried about 15 self tanners in my life until I came across this one- HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT! This product comes with a mit to apply- you can spray the product on the mit and then blend into skin using circular motions, or you can spray directly on the skin and then blend with the mit. I prefer to spray directly on my skin and then blend, except when doing my face. I feel this saves product WHAT I LOVE: My face is very pale and I have a hard time finding tanners that don't make me look orange or un-natural. I use this product at night on my face, (if you're pale you're going to think holy sh*t this looks AWFUL/too dark. But use your face cleanser shower it off in the morning and its going to look beautiful underneath your makeup!!!! This product doesn't have that nasty self tanner smell, very mild This product dries INSTANTLY and never leaves me sticky This has made me look soooooo naturally tan, people have complimented me many times. WHAT I DONT LIKE: It is expensive, I paid about 30 dollars for it at Ulta. It's hard to find in stores and it doesn't last very long. I shower about once a day and it usually doesn't last very long
THIS IS MY FAVORITE NUDE LIPGLOSS IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. I bought this at ulta for 7.99 The only negative thing about this gloss is that it doesn't last long and I find myself applying it a lot. HOWEVER, It is entirely the best and prettiest nude gloss EVER, looks amazing worn over lipglosses, or worn alone. It also doesn't have a scent, which I prefer.
WHAT I HAVE: Very dry, damaged, fine, highlighted hair WHAT I WANTED/ EXPECTED: moisture! a little bit of damaged therapy and some detangling WHAT I GOT: I regret spending so much on this shampoo there is nothing moisturizing about it!!! Its horrible. I used this in junction with their repair conditioner and hydrating conditioners it was all bad, my hair was matted with tangles and broke - shampoo actually seems drying for hair

WHAT I HAVE: Very dry, damaged shampoo Sooo... bought this product because its sulfate free, paraben free etc. It's supposed to be a moisture shampoo but it's anything but! Left my hair almost matted with tangles after use... NOTHING moisturizing, would never recommend to anyone who's hair is damaged or actually needs moisture. nooo way will I ever buy a BB shampoo / conditioner again!
It's hard to say my opinion on this product, because its not AS amazing as it claims, I guess. Its very expensive. It can be used to help detangle, but if thats what youre using it for- go with something else. Because it doesnt work THAT great for that purpose. I have very tangly dry damaged hair and I did not see any great difference with using this product in years past. It will not improve hairs condition or do anything miraculous. Ill save my money and go with a great leave in conditioner that has a heat protectant that will essentially longterm repair my hair
Conditioner -Bumble & Bumble - Super Rich Conditioner

What I have: Fine, Extremely over highlighted hair, dry, and damaged. Tangles easily. Bought this because it claims to be "super rich," there is nothing RICH about it, except the price you pay for it. It did NOT moisturize, relieve me of tangles, or add any sort of repair factor to my hair. Took it back and got my money back. If youre looking for nurishment and like B&B go with one of their masks instead. Yuck to this product!
Liquid -Shiseido - The Makeup Dual Balancing Foundation SPF 17
lovebuzz 4/14/2012 2:53:00 PM
PROS: Coverage is not too much, not too little. Is VERY buildable. You can also mix it with a facial moisturizer to get a more sheer effect. Have used for 3 years in the past and never broke me out CONS: made me look orange. (Have tried 3 shades now) EXPENSIVE ! I paid 40 bucks for this bottle. BOTTOM LINE: I stopped using this product [after being loyal to it for 3 yrs] because within a few hours of using, it oxidized on my face- my forehead would have a ton of foundation in the middle and the rest of my face would look like it had nothing on it- it also darkens within time so my face would always be darker then my neck during the day TERRIBLE && embarrasing. It also made me SOOOO oily in my T-Zone. I have switched to Mac foundation and have been using it now.

Got this product for 6.99 This stuff..... IS AWESOME You know that feeling when you JUST have washed your hair and you can't get any volume in it because it's too silky, and clean? WELL THIS STUFF WILL WORK FOR YOU! It is BEST to keep a backcomb in! Stylists, I think you could have found a "powdered" gold for updos! Anyways, the stuff comes out as a light powder in your hands. You lift your hair in sections and rub it into your roots. It leaves a REALLY TACKY feeling to your hair- UNTIL you brush your hair out! Then that feeling is gone! I did this yesterday before going on a date with my boyfriend and my backcomb power was AWESOME because of this product This product will not give you HOLY CRAP! volume by just putting it into the roots of your hair, but backcomb/tease with it and I PROMISE it works wonders! I will use this sparingly but definitely will be purchasing again
LOVE LOVE LOVE this polish Funny thing is, I CANT STAND Nicki Minaj, but I had to give in to buy this. This is a BLUE BASED PINK- so there is absolutely NO undertones of orange or red- SO ITS THE PERFECT PINK Its a bright shade! Perfect for spring and summer. Yet, its not too obnoxious I do about 2 coats of this on my nails, along with a clear top coat. I get a lot of compliments I paid 7.99 for this product
WHAT TYPE OF SKIN I HAVE: Fairish Medium skin, I do spray tan and use a lot of bronzer I PAID: Got this product on Sale at my Nordstrom Rack, they DO have this product on Sale right now at the urban decay website, for 29 bucks. I got it for 30 bucks PROS: *contains 3 highlight colors great for the inner corners of eyes to brighten! *comes with the primer potion- great product, and its in a squeezie tube CONS: *The glittery shadows leave you with a ton of fall out *comes with a lot of neutral shadows but almost all of them are glittery :( therefore, you cant really use them on your lid AND crease or youll look like a xmas ornament *the urban decay liquid liner is too hard to use, because it's too thin. Drawing a straight line is meerly impossibly with it *Has a few obnoxious green and bright blue shades (5 shadows to be exact) I personally dont wear blue and green eyeshadows so those wont ever be used *comes with a mini speaker you can plug into your cell phone for instance, not gonna lie, its a piece of junk with no bass- but it DOES work *Comes with the UD mini mascara- this mascara is nothing great. its simply dark, wet mascara. doesnt add length BOTTOM LINE: I have the UD naked palette, and it's a 100x better then this. I do like to use this for a few inbetween neutral greys, topes, and highlight colors, but to be honest it's nothing THAT great. Good thing I got it on sale
Shampoo -Wella - System Professional Hydro shampoo

I bought a liter size of this shampoo from my salon because it was on sale. This shampoo smells like "salon" chemicals, I personally like that scent. However, there is nothing "hydrating" about this shampoo. It also left my hair really tangly. This product contains sodium laureth sulfates and alcohol and ingredients dont lie- it will strip your hair of color. There is I believe hydrolyzed wheat protein and panthenol but big deal... the detergents in it will do nothing great for the hair. Needless to say, my liter isnt even half gone and its been years ... wont ever purchase or recommend
I bought this at target ON SALE for 7.99... it wasn't worth a penny. I have dry damaged blonde hair that gets really greasy at my roots because of new non-color treated hair growth. THIS STUFF SUCKED! My hair stayed greasy after spraying it A TON on my hair... also, the can is sooo small it will not last you but a week! I can get tresseme or suave dry shampoo for a fraction of the cost and it will work better. WILL NOT buy again!
WHAT I HAVE: very dry damaged fine highlighted hair I could never justify spending 58$ for this product, but I got it in a kit with Kerastase shampoo hair masque for 80 so thats why I did it. PROS: smell = orgasmic. made my hair feel SILKY. smoothed fly aways. made my hair appear a little shinier. can use when hair is damp or dry,.. if used when damp helps untangle dramatically. if you have blonde hair this product is better then morocccan oil because its CLEAR and will not tone your blonde. will last you FOREVER, only need a drop. ALSO, never weighed my hair down or made it greasy like other oils have in the past... CONS: smell doesnt last. WAY too expensive. my hair didnt end up feeling that beautiful silky feeling a few hours later and certainly not the next morning when I woke up... my hair still tangled easily. I havent noticed any long term repair like the product claims I think ill try out a different hair oil when this runs out. The results were NOT worth 58 bucks and thats the bottom line.

I got this on sale at Ulta for 6 dollars in combination with a mini S.H. hairspray. I only used a very little bit on my hair. I have damaged thin BUT ALOT OF hair. It appears very oily when you rub it into your palms but it absorbed REALLY quick into my hair and I ended up going with a lot more of it to cover the rest of my hair. I didnt really notice a wow factor effect using this product.... I still had to use my Kerastase Elixer oil after using this ... might as well of just used that. No smell with this product either which is kindve a bummer for me. Dont suggest and I wont buy it again!

I got this product on sale at my local drug store for $6.99, original price was $14. I have very thin, damaged, hair.. but a lot of it! I am a blonde and always searching for repair AND volume. PROS is that this is alcohol free, CONS is that it makes your hair VERY STICKY and immediately dry, which doesnt help your case if your hair is easily broken because when its sticky obviously its harsh as heck to comb through. I wasnt SOO impressed with any HOLY CRAP volume with this stuff. The smell STINKS. It reminds me of elmers glue and cologne mixed together. Eh. dont think Ill buy again. I will try it out again though... I get better results with a moose
