I've only had 2 straighteners in my life. This was my first ever - I thought it would be great, and only like $25. So i tried it and it did absolutely nothing. My hair was just as wavy as when i started even after like an hour of straightening. I finally went out and got a $50 (sale) ceramic straightener from Ceramic Tools, which is amazing!! I just wish I had thrown out the conair sooner.
An awesome metallic burnt orange. I would describe it as kind of an amber chrome color. Looks red in some lights. Very distinctive
I just got this today, and I have to share a review. This is awesome, a great bronzey color perfect for summer. I also have pale skin, and it still looked good. I guess I am one of the few pale skinned people who can pull of browns. The glitter wasn't too chunky, and it has great stayign power. I just wish MAC would come up with some more interesting packaging.
I really like this lipstick. I got it without realizing it had caffeine in it . . . and i never would have guessed, as I never felt any jolt ;) But anyways, Lipachino is an awesome color. It looks ugly dark brown in the tube, but when you put it on it is a nice sheer bronzey color (and I have pale skin too). Everyone says "eww" when they see the color in the tube, but love it on.

The s/a at Nordstroms showed me this and I had to have it - i usually hate pencil liners because they never see to have enough color, but this one was smooth, glossy, easy to apply and BLACK! I would def buy this again
Very nice eyeshadow. Silky, easy to blend, nice color choices, and well pigmented. Packaging is classy in a deep brownish slightly shimmery compact (I think they just changed it this Spring when I bought mine) - a break from the cutesy Stila and Benefit packages I love. Anyway, really good product, would buy again, but other things are just as good too so experiment! BTW, I got Pink Stucco, which is a dusty-rose pink made vibrant with a hint of coral, and it is also very nice as a blush!
Get ready! This tiny product packs a huge punch. It stings sooo much, and thats whatI love about it! I let all my friends try it, and they dont believe my little disclaimer about it's spicy sting. Many have been known to not be able to handle the burn, and have to take it off. I dont know about it making my lips look bee-stung, but shiny and wet as anything. Great staying power. Don't get me wrong about the sting - I adore the "wow" it makes you feel. You may love it or hate it, but you gotta try it.

I got this in Champagne, and have never tried it as the intended purpose - a cream eyeshadow. Champagne is so close to my skintone, it just gives a nice golden glow and shimmer, so I use it to highlight my cheekbones and next to my eyes. Brilliant, glowing skin in an instant!
Grrr, I desperately wanted this to solve all my hair removal needs. So much for hoping. This wax too absolutely forever to melt, hardened in a second, was very messy, extremely painful (and I am one of those strange people who thinks getting their yebrows professionally waxed feels good), and didn't remove all the hair. I've used it twice, and I'd pull it out again if I was bored, but I wouldnt buy it again. The only place that it really worked was under my arms. But once I forgot to put the pre-waxing stuff on and it HURT LIKE A MOM! Sorry hehe . . .
The whole point of it is to be small! The only reason I bought it was that it was soooo small and cute. IT is literally the size of a credit card. I may also say that you dont need THAT much product - I've had 2 cards for a few months and theyre still going strong. At $20, not too bad a price for a variety of color choices and great packaging. My one gripe is trying to keep the inside clean.
I love this because of the cute packaging - also, I have Kitten Shops New York and that comes wiht a sleek black puff. The shimmer is so subtle, you can really wear it anywhere. Tip: If the powder isnt coming out of the puff too well, just knead the puff and its perfect again.
I use this on my arms, which are gross with really logn dark hair. I used this once, and it bleached my hair no problem. Even though the length was the same, my hir was invisible. The next time i used it though, my hair became very brittle at the ends and would break off if i pulled it. Not neccesarily a bad thing - now I just have shorter arm hair, which is actually good - but just a precaution if this is not what youre going for.

I have rather oily hair, and this is one of the only drugstore-brand shampoos that is good for cleansing oily hair. It is so hard to find that perfect shampoo, I never waste my money on high end branded shampoos like Frederic Fekaai or Aveda. Simple, cheap, leaves hair soft and shiny.
THE PERFECT EYELINER is all I can say. Make a delicate thin line, a bold thick one, or smudge it up for gorgeous smoky eyes. So smooth and doesnt "trip" on my lids - which I hated about pencil liners. Absolutely gorgeous, worth the price (looks small, but will last forever).
Mmmmmm . . . nice. Love it as a clear mascara for days when I dont feel like a lot of makeup. Ditto for lipgloss. Always good to have around. PS Britney Spears swears by it for everything
