HG Daily Conditioner. I LOOOOVE this stuff!! I've been using this with the matching shampoo since it came out. Since then I've only repurchased this once more. That's because it lasts so long! This conditioner is rich and effective with a low silicone content--not enough for me to ever have to clarify at all and I'm usually sensitive with 'cones. It also has avocado oil and jojoba oil which is REALLY good in a conditioner or any hair product really, and not enough to make your hair at all greasy. I got fine, thick, long wavy hair and I've been using this from bleached heat damaged hair to hair that's virginal. It always gave me beautiful defined gorgeous waves, soft hair, and hardly any weight--just enough to look less frizzy. This is without heatstyling at all. And my hair is SO SOFT. Much better than the over-hyped Redken All Soft with just coats the hair (the old formula was great though). When I style, this is a great prime... beautiful blow out-flat iron look. Makes my hair swingy and shiney. When I do curls or waves they also look great. I've used TONS of shampoos and conditioners drugstore to h/e and this one is the best. My friends with all different hair types love it too. =)
HG STATUS. I love this stuff. Favorite shampoo/conditioner combo ever. Gives my long, thick, wavy hair moisture, smoothness, protection, and softness with daily use. The waves form perfectly and my hair looks great hair dried, which is really important to me. It's hard to find a shampoo and conditioner that makes my hair look nice by itself. And the shampoo is really thick. The regular size lasted me about three months of daily use, sometimes shampooing twice when I use lots of products. I never had to clarify with this or any of the S-factor products. This has been a wonder for my hair from the most damaged (bleached 5xs to nearly virgin)
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Mascara in Azure Blue

I got turned onto this when I saw my friend who has BLACK lashes with the most pretty blue lashes. She told me it was Dior and I HAD to get it. Let me tell you it works beautifully! Most colored mascara's barely show up, but this one sure does (and bright)! With two coats I had long, thick BLUE lashes. And I hadn't had a smear or flake all day!
I LOVE THIS. As a big fan of the UD deluxe shadows, I love how I can take them in my purse now. =) Plus, the applicators actually work well on the go. And not to mention the packaging is super cute!
I bought this because I really liked the non-waterproof version of this mascara and I needed something waterproof for my days at the gym. All in all, this stuff sucked. One coat just tinted my lashes, the next coat was spidery, clumpy and ugly. This flaked BAD, smeared and was a complete BITCH to get off. I noticeably lost many lashes trying to get this stuff off. My eyes were swollen, red, and teary. =( Straight to the trash can...
I'm completely adding to the raves, here. This stuff is fab. It smells wonderful. My hair feels really touchable with this by using just a dab, left on for maybe two minutes. I have moderately damaged hair from left-over dyed hair and the daily use of the flat iron. However, I can actually skip a day a two at times now. I am using this with the matching shampoo.
I am in love with this stuff. It smells gorgeous and actually does a really good job without drying out my hair with me shampooing twice, daily. I'm using this with the matching conditioner.
This really doesn't clump. That's my favorite thing about it--it's clean. It seperates well so I don't ever need a lash comb afterwords. That being said it isn't a dramatic mascara. I mean, it lengthens averagely unless you put many coats which adds decent volume. I use this mascara when I'm on the go and I really don't feel like spending a lot of time getting my makeup right. I've had it for a while and it didn't flake on me. I've had compliments because of the smooth application.
This is really cheap but decent mascara. It makes my lashes look defined and doesn't clump at all. That said, it isn't for me. I prefer more drama than this and the formula didn't hold up well enough more me.
I remember trying this from my mom a long time ago. It curled them slightly and gave decent length, and a little volume. Didn't clump. It layers well quite nicely too. However, this isn't what I'm going for in mascara. I like thick, dramatic lashes. But, the nice thing about this mascara, especially for a lengthening one is that my lashes do not look spidery! And this layers quite well. It wears beautifully and gives me a soft fringe too.
Does nothing but tints and clumps after I cleaned the wand. There is much better.
I hate this new comb-mascara trend. It looks messy and gross.
This is just too much to work with. It is hard to sharpen, you waste product, and you have to wet it. I can make a nice smokey look after a while using but I don't have that kind of time.
It works well and does what it was suppossed to. My lashes don't look spidery and they look a little longer with some volume, but this isn't the look I am going for. I got this as a GWP. It works well under Hypnose. Long, thick lashes.=) The looks is similar to Urban Decay's Skyscraper which I prefer because it is easier to work with and a little cheaper for the same look.
I have found perfect. Gorgeous volume that can be layered. My lashes are soft and they hold a curl. People ask me if my eyelashes are fake! It lengthens, curls, seperates and the tube lasts a while. Over primer, it works even better. It is my HG. I have thin, long, straight lashes.
