Purchased this product in the white pot, and all I have to say is that it is fantastic! Literally sucks the oil out of your skin helping it feel soft, clean and smooth. I wouldn't recommend it for those who have extremely sensitive skin, as it can irritate it slightly but it does really clean your pores. Minimizes their appearance, too! Highly, highly recommended.
Gorgeous, fabulous product. It is merely impossible to put too much on, the product gives you full control. I purchased in Sherbet, what a stunning colour!!
Wow, what a truly amazing product. I just bought into the entire youngblood line, and overall this is one of my favorite products. It literally melts into your skin, while providing perfection for your face. Such a treat for us ladies who tend to be a little shiny mid-day, highly recommended! I apply it using a large-headed powder brush for more even distribution.
Just had my makeup done in this product today, and I have to say that my skin feels amazing. I usually hate liquid foundation because of the way that it looks after eight hours. This stuff I can say that after a crazy busy day, my skin still looks flawless. I don't have bad skin, so I am not searching for full coverage. It covers just enough, while still letting my freckles show through. I've got it on order, can't wait to receive it!

I have tried many masques in my day. However I knew that by purchasing this product my hair wouldn't feel soft and scrumptious, as it is a PROTEIN-based treatment. Anytime that you use a protein-based treatment, your hair is not going to feel amazing. But for some reason when I used it, in fact my hair almost felt more damaged than it already was, rather sponge-like. I think this is a treatment to use prior to your regular conditioner in order to achieve the softness that you want, otherwise you surely aren't going to get it from this product.
Treatments -Davines - Nounou Pak - nourishing repairing mask

All I have to say is a huge THANK YOU to Davines for making this product. I am a natural blonde who decided to try the dark side for a bit, and when the colour started fading to something I wasn't exactly prepared for, I knew I needed to go back to my blonde roots. After a few fully-foiled heads I was back to blonde with extremely fried hair. Davines created this product for extremely damaged and distressed hair... I know this because it has been the only treatment that has made my hair feel relatively normal. Hoping for a speedy recovery with the help from this amazing product. Ups: *Smell *Easy application *Effectiveness Downs: *What is going on with the packaging? It sucks! Dollar store quality for such a banging product. Upgrade!

This oil is amazing. I can put so much in my hair and it doesn't go greasy. Smells incredible and helps tame all the crazy fly-aways! Looking forward to longer, stronger and healthier hair!
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Summer Fruit

I received this product as a gift in a pack of three, and I have had an absolutely terrible reaction. The first one I tried I thought was just a fluke, so once the rash went down I tried a different flavour. Unfortunately I got the same thing. It starts with my lips being super swollen and dry, so I would apply it often. Within a few days, I developed a horribly painful rash with tiny red bumps all over my mouth area which eventually went down and caused severe dryness. It sucks because it is a natural product and the packaging is genius, but I think this is one of those things where it is best to stick with the un-natural products.
Although it is extraordinarily expensive, this is the only salt spray that actually does what it says. A little goes a long way with this stuff, and if you apply too much your hair will definitely feel like sand! Just a couple sprays throughout my hair gives just enough to create a messy, beachy look to my waves. Even though the price is really high, I will buy it again just because it works that good. The bottle will last you a very long time, too.
Toners -MAC - Mineralize Charged Water Skin Hydrating Mist
richellealexis 8/28/2012 10:43:00 PM
This toner is *fabulous*! Makes your skin look and feel subtle and soft. Benefits: *Hydrating *Brightening *Toning *Sets makeup There aren't many toners that I like, however this one is lovely. Sprays very evenly on your face. Will be a great asset in the winter when it is quite dry. Smells incredible and is a great re-energizer! It is a must have for MAC lovers!
Very basic cleanser. Does not have any sort of anti-aging benefits (not that I need it) and isn't necessarily formulated for any sort of skin type. It gets the job done but sort of reminds me of clearasil in the way it smells. I do find that over time I do need to exfoliate vigorously because it doesn't really 'get in there' as much as I would like. I do like this cleanser a lot, however I think next time I will just stick with the standard green gel cleanser as it is cheaper and cleans your skin just a tad bit more!! I will buy it again but maybe for winter as it does have more of a hydrating benefit than deep cleansing. *One thing to remember, a little goes A LONG WAY. It is extremely concentrated, which is why the bottle is so small! I use about half a size of a small pea to wash my entire face.
Treatments (Eye) -MAC - Prep + Prime Future Length Lash Serum
richellealexis 8/28/2012 4:43:00 PM
I went into MAC the other day to purchase the Prep+Prime eyelash primer and the makeup artist sold me this stuff instead. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when I saw what she sold me, because it really wasn't what I wanted. However I love it! This stuff definitely isn't a primer, but over time it will make your lashes longer. Doesn't irritate my eyes at all, and a little goes a long way! Thanks for making a mistake MAC, I love it!
Lip Gloss -Stila - Mango Crush lip and cheek stain
richellealexis 8/28/2012 4:29:00 PM
Holy goodness I can't believe the staying power on this stain! It is because of it's intensity I will not use it on my cheeks, ever. However on my lips? Heck yes! It stays on like a hot darn even after drinking coffee, eating lunch, talking all day and snacking. Melts right into your lips and feels like you have nothing on. Bought this in Passion Fruit Crush, and love the bright beaming red that it gives off. Must buy for lip stain lovers!!
Bought this adorable little brush with my new Matchmaster foundation and it is just wonderful! Can't say enough about it. Applies my foundation in the most perfect way, and blends it wonderfully. The best part about it is that it is synthetic, so my foundation washes out of it completely. Highly recommended for liquid foundation lovers!
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Angled Natural Blush #131

Not a big sephora brand fan, however their brushes are great. This angled blush brush is fantastic - sweeps across your cheeks perfectly without wasting all of your product. I use it for blush, bronzer and my highlighter.
