Being a hair stylist, Ive used every formula of red imaginable trying to find the perfect one that would uphold on my porous hair. Going through trying redken,paul mitchell,pravania,chi,etc I found the perfect formula amongst this line( was going for christina hendricks red..with a lttle more pop) Im a natural 6n, so when coloring I use equal parts of 7rc & 7rr 20 vol on the roots..and the same formula but with 10 volume on the ends. It always processes nice and evenly and holds like a charm.It does fade however, but thats not till about 3weeks and still upholds that nice coppery ginger that I love :)
Moisturizers -Garnier - Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream

Love this moisturizer :) Very lightweight but feels like it actually penetrates my skin rather then just sitting on top of it. I'm very sensitive so a lot of different moisturizers i've tried have broke me out but have been using this for about 4 weeks and no problem so far :) Works well under the liquid foundation I use and never feel like I get that greasy feeling.I took off one lippy with the packaging because it does get kind of messy..especially if you any of the product gets around the rim of the jar it gets kind of gross.
Liquid -Almay - Almay Truly Lasting Color longwear makeup

I'm very suprised at all the negativity towards this product..I feel like i've been through a lot of higher end foundations as well as drugstores and this is one of the best. I have very sensitive,acne-prone skin so the wrong product breaks me out almost immediatly. I swithed to this from everyday minerals after feeling like that wasnt providing me with the longetivity/coverage I needed. This product does go on slightly 'tacky' but I feel like that consistancy works well for the coverage that I need. Once applied it feels like i'm wearing nothing and the ivory matches me perfect (no overly yellow or pink base)I work 8-10 hour shifts at work(hairdresser) so i'm at a constant for moving around,sweating a lot & this foundation doesn't budge..would definatly repurchase
I'm a hair stylist and an avid tigi product user. I used this in my hair before I even started doing hair and will say its great for anyone with finer hair who needs to add a little thickness,texture, and control just be careful on application one pump should be enough for medium length hair
Scrubs -Queen Helene - Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub

Being as it is winter and my skin is starting to lose its oil, I was distraught this winter on what to do, I never had the problem of problematic dry areas before. For a while I was using a dermologica cleanser with the throw away buff puff kind of sponges and that was ok but often led to harsh breakouts,rashes,and almost skin burns from the rough texture. I just started using this product a few days ago and since the exfolliant in it is so fine it it almost a two in one. It clears away all dead skin on the surface and I also feel it remoisturizes my skin without leaving me irritated. Very nice product, and cheap to!
As a stylist its hard to find a true to tone glaze. This stuff is fantastic, very vibrant,very alive, and it gives a great non brassy look to blondes. The only thing is they are very porous so as fast as the hair is gona take this in, its also gonna come out quickly too.
Mascara -Bourjois - Volume Glamour Ultra Black Mascara

I can't even tell you how many mascaras I've tried. When this came out,however, I just had to try it. The blacker the better as far as mascaras. Knowing the Bourjois is one of the top competitiors for their mascars I tried it, and i loveee it. It gives me a nice thick seperated lash. The only thing is it doesnt lengthen to much, so my lashes are still a bit shorter but plump. And the color is true to its word,ultra black.
Mascara -Estee Lauder - MagnaScopic Maximum Volume Mascara

I honestly think this is one of the best mascaras.It gives me the seperation and length I need. It gives me the fake lash look with only one application, and doesnt dry out my lashes.Overall very nice!
I've been using mineral powders by UD and EM for as long as I can remember at this point, but felt I needed to try a liquid one last time. I did a lot of research on here and this seemed to be one i would want to try. I recently purchased it and was i wrong.The application I believe shows any imperfections(if i have a little dry area i think it just makes it look dryer and more disgusting). It did cover my acne scars nice but as far as any other new little blemish wouldnt cover at all. It doesnt glide on very smooth,its actually quite stripey and thick reguardless of how much you blend.
I tried to like it, I really did. The results i see when using this on some people is amazing, the way the pores disapear the makeup glides on and your skin looks baby soft, naturally i wanted to try it. Nonetheless I just got it, used it for two days and now am ready to return it. Reguardless of it being light, it felt so heavy, coated my skin with this fake greased nasty shine, and made me have slight breakouts. Not something im looking for in a primer, my hunt continues
For the price of this product, the quality is fantastic. It doesnt clump and it applies evenly. I love the carbon black it is probably one of my favorite mascaras out there
I am one that does like this mascara. Its cute packaging and very appealing. The brush is a little overwhelming at first but i think if you open your eye up wide enough to extend the brush from the root to the ends it really only takes one coat to make me happy =)

I love this product. I wear green eyeshadow on a daily basis and ive had this product for over a year, and with the amount left, I could see having it for a good six months! The texture is very soft and you get such a vibrant color out of it!
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - Midnight Cowgirl Eyeshadow

My favorite base color! I love the microglitter and the highlight it gives my browbone. You can wear it alone or with almost any color. The packaging is adorable and its such a subtle glow! love it
I was in absolute heaven after I purchased this product! A reassurance of mineral makeup that doesnt break me out and look cakey! After my horror with BE I had purchased this. The texture is much more ground, its actually more finer milled then the BE so it will give you a fine texture and more natural smoothness. I however, dont use the puff ontop. I like a medium coverage so i just take the lid off and dip a bit of brush in it and usually that much powder can be appled to my whole face and give me that. This product does contain minimal bismuth oxychloride but again doenst break me out.The colors are limited but illusion matches me pretty well whether im pale or have a little color. i love it. Urban Decay is by far my fave line!
