Okay, so like the others, I had high hopes for this and couldn't wait to try it. At first I really liked it, but the more I use, the worse my hair is getting. It is actually drying my hair out, and I feel like it is making my hair fall out!!! Needless to say, I will NOT repurchase this product.
I have to say that I am very surprised by this product. I don't usually purchase Sephora brand products because they don't work well for me, but this is awesome! Blends really nice, but I have to agree with the other reviewers that it does dry quickly. Other than that, a little goes a long way, so I am sure this will last me awhile, definitely worth a try! I use this in addition to their Lasting and Perfecting Corrector. I use the corrector first, and then blend the concealer on top - looks great!
Lips -Milani - Lip Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Gloss Pencil

I didn't have high expectations when I purchased this, but when I got home I tried it and was very surprised. This gives great coverage and lasts forever. I got it in News Flash, such a pretty color and looks great with mixed with Revlon's purple lipstick. I definitely recommend this, and will purchase it again. For the price, it is so worth it. I think I might try the other colors soon.
I was wondering sephora when I saw this weird looking mask and of course I was intrigued to learn more about it. I bought it and tried it on my face that night. I was a shocked at how intense the mask looked and it didn't come off easy because I didn't put it on thick enough. At first, I wasn't impressed. Then I tried it a few days later and applied a thick layer - definitely impressed! Made my skin super smooth and cleared up any acne I had. The only reason why I give this mask 4 stars instead of 5 is because it makes my eyes water when I put it on - not sure why this is, but it freaks me out a little.
This has been my savor the past couple of weeks! I am a user of retin-A (clear skin now, but using it to keep acne at bay) and recently my dermatologist increased the strength. My skin became super dry and flaky with the increased strength and my HG Purpose by J&J was just not cutting it no matter how much I used. I was on the hunt for something stronger, but wouldn't make me break out. After many failed attempts (and still dry skin!), I finally stopped by EL and the lady told me about Hydrationist and explained that this is new for women in their 20's. I was hesitant at first, but she gave me a sample and presto - my skin was totally moisturized! I went back and bought it the big size. Now my skin is super soft, totally clear and best part no more flakes! The only reason why I didn't give this 5 lippies is because of the scent, luckily this is not as strong smelling as the other EL moisturizers. I will definitely purchase this again.

So.... this lotion used to be my HG, but ever since Olay modified the sunscreen in this product, my skin reacted horribly!!! I am so annoyed that they changed the formula. Before my skin always looked great, but now my skin has broken out in this horrible rash (little white heads wherever I used it) - gross... Has anyone else had a reaction to the new formula? I am officially bummed and am desperately trying to find something that suits my skin.
Shampoo -Trader Joe's - Balanced Moisturizing Nourish Spa Shampoo

My hair is super curly and thick and I straighten it all the time, so I have been on a mission to find a good shampoo that saves my hair. I have tried the super expensive stuff, but seriously this stuff works just as well!!! Actually I have come to love this stuff, it smells so good and it doesn't break me out and it leaves my hair soft which is exactly what I needed. I will definitely purchase again.
I initially am not a lipstick girl, but I wanted to buy a red lipstick after I had my braces removed and I absolutely fell in LOVE with this lipstick!!! It is by far the best red for me - I have olive skin and brown eyes. I always get compliments when I wear this and it has become my holy grail. I wish it was not a LE, but I hope they do bring it back at some point. Please bring this back M.A.C!!!
Masks -Lumene - Arctic Touch Purifying Peat-Facial Mask

Overall, I think this is a good mask. I use it after I exfoliate and it seems to clean out my skin well enough. The next day, my face is glowing and the shine is reduced overall. I don't like the scent (smells like dirt and not the good smell after it rains) and I agree with others that this is not a mask to walk around in. If it were on sale I would buy it again, otherwise I think the next mask I purchase will be from Aveda.
I LOVE this product and would recommend it to anyone. I went in to Aveda looking for something that would cure my flaky dry skin and this worked literally overnight and the best part is that it doesn't sting. This has quickly become one of my daily regimes. I have sensitive acne prone skin and this did not break me out at all. It is a bit on the pricey side, but it does great things for my skin so I believe it is well worth it - if you think about it: how much have we spent on useless products that never work??? I will definitely purchase this again!
I think this stuff is awesome, but I do not use it on my face because I feel it is a little harsh. I use it before I shave or before I use tanner and it leaves my skin baby soft. I have used expensive sugar scrubs and what not and nothing compares to this. cheap and effective.
This product made me break out which really sucks because it was the perfect shade. So in other words, if you have acne prone skin do not buy this and save yourself the pain.
Styling Products -Garnier - Fructis Style - Smoothing Milk

After reading some of the reviews here, I decided to try it since it was on sale. What an awesome product. I usually do not like Garnier, but this stuff really does what it says. It leaves my hair soft and shiny and when I want to blow dry it straight, this stuff cuts my styling time in half. I will definitly be buying this again.
This is a great foundation if you do not have acne prone skin. I am so mad because this matched my skin tone perfectly and blended really well, but sadly it made me break out, which is odd because it is oil free. So sad that I will not be buying this again, I wish it didn't break me out.
Styling Products -John Frieda - Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Finishing Creme

I really like this product a lot because it makes my hair really soft and frizz free, but the only problem is if you put is near your scalp it will make your look like you have flakes which is really bad. My advice, start at your ends and then work your way up to the scalp that way you get the product where you most need it and you won't end up looking like you have flakes. Overall I think I would buy this product again until I find something better.
