Hair Color -L'Oreal - Superior Preference Hair Colour

I don't know... Maybe my feelings about this product will change later, but I just dyed my hair with UL51. It promised "no brass" and "cooler." I dyed my hair, came out of the shower, dried my hair, and look in the mirror. My hair came out REALLY orange. And the thing is the dye didn't even show up. It only became orange-y under the light. I'm kinda disappointed. I wanted to avoid orange-y hair. For reference, I am Asian, with bra-strap length hair, with natural jet black hair.
The scent did not pick up on my skin, not even on those who were next to me. Such a shame, I liked this scent.
Cute packaging, but that's basically it. It does not brighten or enhance my skin as it claims to do. It is not worth the price, and I will be returning it to Sephora. I'm disappointed in this product. It dries quickly, but it is a pain to get off. It took me over twenty minutes to attempt to peel it off, but I ended up having to rinse the excess off.
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream

It says "bb cream," but in actuality, it only works as a normal tinted moisturizer. It does not really help your skin like a BB cream normally would. It does even out my skin tone, but it has little to no coverage; which is why I layer, especially on red spots. I use my fingers to blend/apply. I do use this on a daily basis, because I am a fan of lightweight coverage, as my skin doesn't really need much to cover it. However, I won't be repurchasing after I finish, and I will be looking for something else to use.

I went to Sephora to hunt down some tinted moisturizers. I asked a nice lady to help me, and she pointed me to these. She gave me a sample in Bisque. It doesn't cover well, nor did it match me. It's a little too dark, but the lighter shade is too light. That's okay though, because it's not meant to cover blemishes. As a moisturizer, however, it didn't really hydrate my skin. My skin didn't like it, but it also didn't NOT like it. Thank goodness for samples; I would have been devastated if I bought the entire thing!
The product's in cute packaging. I have to go over it twice for a better look, however. It applies on my eyes easily. I recommend not using on your lower lid, as it will smudge more. I have this in black.
I am Asian, and because of what I have heard it does to Asian hair, I was excited to try this out. I was disappointed. It did make my hair shinier, but it didn't make it softer. It didn't lather up well for me. Even after I used it, my hair felt greasier than before I washed it. It weighed my hair down. For reference, I have thick hair, naturally straight, and it is not dyed nor permed in anyway.
I bought this on sale, in a pack which comes with this eyeliner and the three-dial mascara for $2.12, which I was very happy about! This is my first retractable eyeliner, and so I'm wearing it on my eye to test it out. It applied on my eyes so smoothly! I have tried on my friends' eyeliners before, and this pleased me. I have had it on at home for roughly 4 hours as of currently, with minimum smudging. I luckily bought two packs! :) If there are any more when I go tomorrow, I will surely buy another.
It's such a wonderful shade of red-- too bad I can't pull it off. I got this for $0.50, because it was half off. This was the first lipstick I had ever bought, and it's too bold of a color for me to wear outside. But, it is wonderful!
This is my favorite spray from all the VS garden collection sprays. It is not overly sweet, like most of the others, and has a clean, light, floral scent. I have trouble finding sprays I can use; my mom has a very sensitive nose and almost all scents are too strong for her. She hasn't had a whiff of this yet, but since it is such a light scent, I think it'll be alright.
I love glitter. This was one of the first polishes I had ever bought on my own. What would you expect; a fourteen year old girl would look for cheap, cute polishes, and for .99, this was wonderful. To be truthful, it didn't go as I expected. The glitter particles are too scattered when I put it on, and without two or three coats, it looks meager. A little girl, or a complete girly girl would love this, but as I'm still discovering my girly side, it's too much. It's too hard to take off, and it had me scrubbing at my nails for a rather long amount of time. I won't buy this again.
I'm still searching for lip balm that I like. This one won't do. It glides on easily- too easily. I'd like it more if the product absorbed into my lips better; as I don't like to reapply often. EDIT: This was the BEST lip balm I've ever used. I don't know what I was talking about then. If I leave it on overnight, my lips are smooth and hydrated for at least two hours after I wake up. I don't have to apply constantly. I ran out 2 months ago, and I have not yet found another lip balm that worked for me like this did!
At first, I had heard so many good things about this product. I managed to snag an 8.4 fl oz bottle for only four bucks. I didn't like the smell, at all, at least not on me. Maybe it was my body chemistry, or maybe it was the way the girls always seemed to be using this particular spray. Overly sweet, I got bored of it after three uses, and I gave it away to a friend. At least she likes it.
I have mixed emotions on this. When I first sprayed it on, I didn't like it. The dry down was much better, sweet. On me, I didn't smell the coconut, but on others it was very clear.

I only needed one coat for a nice opaque color, but I added another coat. I am impressed with how smooth it looks. I just put it on, and I'm expecting to last a rather long time compared to other polishes, if I don't scratch it off myself. (I tend to play with my fingernails a lot.) The color is not as it looks in the bottle. It is more of a red orange than a red. Remember Crayola crayon in scarlet? I'd say this polish is a scarlet.
