Between the Color Conserve shampoo and this conditioner, my hair was dried out and flat. This isn't completely awful, but I'm willing to pitch the rest of the tube and move onto something else.
Not awful, but nothing special either. Didn't care for the scent and it doesn't seem to prolong my color any better or worse than anything else. Made my hair straw-like, especially the highlighted sections. I think I'm done with Aveda hair care.
I love these!!!! What more can I say. Some colors show up better than others, but I think that has more to do with skin tone and application. Most days I tightline with Blacktrack and then use a colored liner just above the tightlining. I never had good luck with pencil liners but Fluidlines have been a godsend for me.
I've been using this for a couple weeks now and so I far I am really happy with it. Pros- the foamy/creamy texture, the container, make-up durability, and the major thing, I don't look oily even hours later. Cons- a little pricey, doesn't do much to disguise my pores. I've used it with MAC liquid foundation and Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and it has worked well with both. I may try the LM primer next, but unless I like that better, I'll be back to Prep+Prime. I didn't know there was one with SPF until after I bought it, so I may try that too.
I was wondering what all the hype was about this primer so I thought I'd give it a shot. Before this I used an Ulta primer which was fine but nothing spectacular. The Smashbox primer made me look like I had an oil slick on my face after an hour. I never really felt like it settled into my skin, and consequently neither did any of the makeup I put on top of it. If I scratched an itch on my cheek I ended up with makeup caked under my nail. Yuck. It was a little better when the weather was cooler because the primer was more gel-like. When the weather (and my bathroom) warmed up, it turned to liquid. I pitched this and moved onto a MAC primer which I like a lot better.

I wanted something that would give some volume without any extra effort on my part (I typically only wash and blow-dry my hair every other day). It gave me enough bounce to make me happy and it still feels good (not limp and greasy) by the second day. It did make my fly-aways act up, but I just smoothed them down with a finishing gloss.
This has become my first official HG. My left elbow always seems to get dry during the winter and this is the first product I've used that actually makes it go away. I originally bought it to use on my face, but I've found that I prefer it for a body cream.
I read some reviews praising this and since I found the small tube at Target for under $2, I figured I would give it a try. Since there were mixed reviews on the texture, I used it on my hands first. I can't imagine putting this on my face... it's so thick and sticky. I also don't care for the smell... I normally love citrus scents, but this reminds me of lemon Pledge. I'll use the tube up as hand cream, but after that I'll stick to my CeraVe.
I just wanted a little oomph for my roots. I had started using Sexy Dirt and liked that pretty well, so I thought I'd give another Jonathan product a try. Don't waste your money. It's really just concentrated hairspray that comes out in a stream. Not very easy to work with and it made my hair sticky- exactly as if I had sprayed a bunch of hairspray on my roots. This might be good for teasing if you want that big hair look that Jonathan Antin seems so fond of, but there must be something better out there for adding a little volume.
