I love this polish! I layered it over a pastel purple and it looks amazing. I can't stop looking at my nails! This is way too sheer to wear on its own, but it looks great layered on top of just about everything.
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray
sinfulnails 5/16/2011 9:58:00 AM
I am really pleased with this product. I got tired of paying a lot for heat protector and when I saw this for less than $4 I knew I had to give it a try. This works as good as the more expensive brands. I blow dry and iron my hair every day and this has stopped my hair from breaking off at the ends. I use this in conjunction with Moroccan oil and my hair has never looked better.
I love this color in the bottle, but I am not a fan of the formula. The polish is super thick and it was nearly impossible to get a non-streaky coat. That combined with the thick brush made for one messy application. Thankfully, I put this on my toes so no one is close enough to see the imperfections. I will use my bottle up, but I will not repurchase.
I really wanted to like this product, but I thought it was terrible. The applicator gets too much of the mascara on it and makes my eyelashes turn into one big clumpy mess. I hate to do it, but I'm tossing this one. A complete waste of money.
I found this at the dollar store and I wish I had bought a few more while I had the chance. I use this at night to take my makeup off and it works great. I love the way it warms up when it hits my face and leaves my skin feeling really clean. I will be repurchasing.
Cleansers -Oxy - Clinical Advanced Face Wash Acne Treatment 2% Salicylic Acid
sinfulnails 5/12/2011 4:00:00 PM
This was possibly the worst acne product I have ever tried in my life. I got a free sample in the mail and washed my face with it once before I went to bed. My face immediately felt great - my skin was smooth and really clean. The next morning my face was really clear. It seemed like my acne had cleared up over night and I was all ready to buy a full kit of this "miracle product". I'm glad I waited because about 8 hours later the nightmare began. My face turned red and was so itchy I couldn't even bear it. My forehead and chin broke out in small bumps too. This went on for about three days before the itching stopped and my skin started to flake off. All in all, the damage that one use of this product did took about a week to heal. What a terrible experience! I wish I could give this product a zero rating.
Cleansers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)
sinfulnails 5/12/2011 3:52:00 PM
I don't like this product at all. I tried it after the dermatologist recommended it, but I was really disappointed. I expect my face to feel clean after I wash it, but it felt like there was a thick film on my face after using this. It doesn't lather at all and I hate the smell. I am going to take my losses and throw this away.
This is one of my favorite lip products ever! It isn't too shiny or sticky and goes on beautifully. I love this particular color because it is really natural looking and it doesn't make me look like I have clown lips (always a plus). I'm glad I gave this a try and I plan on trying out a few other colors.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - BioInfusion Hydrating Conditioning Balm

I couldn't bring myself to buy a bottle of Fekkai conditioner for $25, so I settled for Bioinfusion. I am so glad that I did! This is a nice thick conditioner that makes my hair feel really soft without feeling too weighed down. I got it on sale BOGO for $7.99 at Walgreens, so it was a steal. There is no way I can ever go back to the cheapy conditioners after trying this product. I am definitely a convert.
Top/Base Coats -Sally Hansen - Mega Shine Top Coat
sinfulnails 5/10/2011 11:37:00 AM
This is my absolute favorite top coat. It goes on without streaking my polish and dries super quick. My nails look like I have had a professional manicure/pedicure whenever I use this. To top it off, I found my bottle in the Dollar Store! My only complaint is that I can't see through the bottle and have no idea how much more is left.
Top/Base Coats -Sinful - Sinful Colors Professional Basecoat
sinfulnails 5/10/2011 11:12:00 AM
I am really happy with this basecoat. I wasn't expecting much considering the $.99 price tag, but this product has turned out to be great! It provides a really smooth nail surface which makes my nail polish look fabulous. I also haven't had any problems with my nail polish staining since I started using this. I will definitely be buying a few more bottles of this.
This is the first orange I have ever tried and I love it! The color is amazing - shimmery orange with a touch of gold. My only complaint is with the formula. This is the first Sinful Colors polish that has been really watery. As a result, my application turned out messy and I even dripped some on the carpet. Thankfully I use this on my toes and no one is that close to see the imperfections.
This is one of the worst concealers I've ever tried. The formula is runny and even though I bought it in fair, it is way too orange and dark for my skin. I wouldn't dare put this on my blemishes as it would just bring more attention to them. I do, however, use a little under my eyes to give the area a little more color. On the plus side, it smells wonderful (which, unfortunately, is a small consolation).
I've tried the expensive concealers and this product puts them to shame. I love the consistency and it goes on thick enough to cover my blemishes. For the price ($1.99 at most drug stores) you can't go wrong. This is a staple in my makeup collection!
Concealers -Physicians Formula - Concealer Twins... Green and Natural
sinfulnails 5/9/2011 3:13:00 PM
This product didn't work for me at all. I have very fair skin and this did nothing to cover my blemishes. The green side was just mediocre and didn't hide the redness as well as I would have liked. The flesh colored side was completely useless. It was watery and didn't even cover the green that I had just applied. When I tried to use it by itself, it did nothing and you could see every flaw that I tried to conceal. I'm glad I got this for practically free with a coupon because I would have been really disappointed otherwise.
