I LOVE this shampoo and conditioner duo. I love the scent and how it doesn't leave a residue in my hair. It cleans very well and leaves my hair soft, silky, and shiny. The only thing I do not like about this product is the packaging. It has a pump which is ok for when I am at home and leave it in my shower. But it is not convenient for travel.
I loved how soft and silky this made me hair feel!! After being very disappointed by the Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, I told myself not to buy any Organix shampoo/conditioners. But this one is absolutely fantastic. It does not have a very strong scent, but the scent is nice. I am not a fan of the packaging because of the size of the bottle, but the product inside makes up for it. I like using this with the Clear Voluminzing Root Boost shampoo, although using it with the Organix Macadamia Shampoo works well too.
I really wanted to like this foundation, but unfortunately I did not. The color match was great, but the main problem for me that when I put it on, there was a kind of shimmery sheen to it. If you have really dry skin, then it's probably okay, but for my very oily skin, it looked like I was making my face oily before it even became naturally oily! This had good coverage and it did not break me out (I am basically allergic to everything). The packaging looks cute, but it is typical of a revlon foundation in which it has no pump. But because it does nothing for oil control and somehow made me look shiny right after applicaton, I will definitely not be repurchasing.
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Rose Twist
shio318 4/5/2013 2:07:00 PM
I love this!!! Normally I do not like Cover Girl products because of the scent, but this lip pencil does not have a scent. This color is very natural, for me it is a "my lips but better" shade. I really like how this feels on my lips, its creamy, not sticky, and feels very moisturizing. The packaging is pretty good, nothing special really. I do like that it is a twist up pencil, so I do not need to sharpen it. I got this for 6.99 at Walgreens.
I really like this dry conditioner. Of course, one could argue that leave-in conditioner has been around so there is no need for dry conditioner. I have straight hair, and I find that leave-in conditioner just makes my hair look stringy. This is nice because 1) it doesn't make my hair stringy and 2) it does the job. I personally am not a big fan of dry shampoo, but I do like this. It also smells fantastic, very tropically. Super cheap and fantastic.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Whisper in Pin Up Peach
shio318 2/22/2013 2:40:00 AM
I really, really love the color of this product. It is a perfect, natural-looking pink that gives my lips a little extra oomph! I also LOVE that it smells like Fruit Loops cereal. The problem that I had with this product is that it is quite drying. It doesn't last for a long time on the lips, and while it was starting to leave my lips, my lips felt parched and flaky. I would suggest using a balm under this. It also leaves a bit of a stain, but this color is so natural that a stain wouldn't look too dramatic.
I have a good tan all year long and this bronzer is more of a highlighter for me. It is very pretty and I LOVE the shimmer. Definitely not for contouring. I do not apply a lot of this all over my face because it can make me look orange, but using as ighlighter makes my face looks glowy and fresh. I would repurchase this because it is great and very cheap. A little goes a long way for me though, so mine will be lasting quite a while. The packaging is ok, seeing as the product is cheap I wasn't expecting a grat-quality package.
This is a pretty good eye primer for the price. It is a primer that blends in pretty well to the eyelid, and I like that because I do not like when primers make your eyelid a whitish color. My eyeshadows do not crease until about 6-7 hours after I apply it, which I think is pretty good for a primer of this price. It is better for everyday use, but if you are going to wear a lot of eye makeup or you are going to a big event, I would buy a better primer.
This product is probably L'Oreal's resonse to the Revlon lip butters. These are similar to the lip butters, except I personally think they are a little less sticky.There was not as wide a color range as the lip butters. I bought Heavenly Berry and Tender Mauve at Walgreens and they cost about $8, which I thought was a bit pricey for a balm. Luckily, there was a buy one get one half off sale. I like this product a lot. I had to use a lot of product to get some color on my lips which was a bit disappointing. Fortunately, I love both colors on my lips. They are natural colors and look nice. I would like to try some of the darker colors of this balm, but as I said, there aren't too many options. The packaging is pretty, however I do not like that the cap must be put on precisely. There is one side with a little piece that must be matched with another opening (sorry if this doesn't make much sense). Not very convenient when in a rush, but nevertheless I would repurchase this product.
Eyeliner -Cover Girl - Liquiline Blast in Blackfire
shio318 1/4/2013 4:35:00 PM
I bought this eyeliner because of juicystar07 on youtube. I love it!! The color is so dark and the product is creamy and smudgable, but will not smudge if you do not want it to. It is affordable and lovely. I was heartbroken when I lost it, so I will be buying it again.
One of my favorite mascaras! It is so black, and lengthens and thickens. I can wear this on its own, or I put it on top of a lengthening mascara to really make my lashes pop. I like the brush a lot. The only problem I have with this mascara is that it can take a little while to dry. Definitely will repurchase.
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream
shio318 1/4/2013 4:23:00 PM
This BB cream made my skin break out. Obviously everyone has different skin and there will be people who can use this product and it could do wonders for their skin. But not mine. The color match is pretty good. I did not like the consistency of this BB cream, nor did I like its smell. At first it felt a bit heavy on my skin, but that feeling eventually went away. The packaging is horrible. It has a similar packaging to the Almay foundations and the product just spills out when you open it and makes a mess. But the main reason I did not like this was because it made me break out. I have highly sensitive skin and I am allergic to so many things. I had high hopes for this product and I ended up throwing it out after just a few uses.
Brows -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Tinted Brow Gel in Granite
shio318 1/4/2013 4:19:00 PM
I do not naturally have good eyebrows. I am also a swimmer and the chlorine tends to burn off my eyebrows. I bought this brow gel because it was tinted and had heard good things about it. I did not like this product because it dried to a grayish color and made my eyebrows feel crunchy (if that makes sense). It is kind of hard to fill in sparse area and make the "hairs" look realistic with this brow gel. If I purchase any other Anastasia brow products, I will try a different color.
I had been putting off buying this lip balm because of the price. Many lip balms are cheaper and do the trick. I've been wanting to try these though because I prefer lip balm to lip gloss or lip stick for everyday wear. I finally purchased this and I love the natural color it gives to my lips. You can build up the color for a little more dramatic look. It is relatively moisturizing. In terms of lip balm, I prefer the original Burt's Bees lip balm, but this color is very nice. It kind of has a plastic-y scent but it is not overwhelming or offputting.
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil
shio318 1/4/2013 4:11:00 PM
I love this lip balm! It gives good moisture to my lips and has been great during the winter when my lips get chapped. I really like that this lip balm is pink because it does not make my lip color look whitish or paler than my natural pink. The smell is ok, and it lasts on the lips for a good amount of time. I love the cooling effect of the regular Burt's Bees lip balm and wish this one had it too. But overall, good product for a good price.
