Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - Juice Organics Brightening Conditioner

Just got the BRIGHTENING shampoo and conditioner in the mail yesterday. I was so excited to try. I like the fact that cosmeticsdatabase gives these 2 out of 10 hazard level, pretty hard to find. I loved the smell and the lathering properties of the shampoo. The conditioner was creamy and but did very little to soften my hair. I did not blow dry, but just let it air dry to see the real effect. The conditioner did not make my hair silky, but it is soft, but a bit frizzy. I like that this is a safe healthy shampoo and conditioner, but will not purchase again.
Like the volume, but do not like the frizz. Leaves hair dry and tangly. Only bought it because of low hazard ratings on Cosmeticdatabase.
The best and most precise tweezers you will find. Invest in these, they will last you a long time.

Makes eyelining so easy. I do not use liquid eyeliners or gels, I simply wet the brush and dip it in the eyeshadow of my choice and line with the shadow. This gives me countless variations which makes my morning routine so much fun!

Use it for flawless blush application mainly. Watch some youtube videos for techniques and you got yourself the most natural makeup ever!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I do see a huge difference when I apply this. The eyeshadow lasts longer and does not smudge and collect in the crease of my eye. However, I find that eyeshadow application is more challenging when I use it - it is harder to blend.
Makes the makeup (I use Pur Minerals) application look flawless and super smooth! I use it for special occasions only because I do not know if it would cause me to break out - I am very careful with what I put on my face.
I use it in sand (2). So far it is the best blemish concealer with the most coverage I have found. Always looking for more natural and less expensive versions, but will continue using this with good results until then.
Love this duo. Very natural bronzer and blush. Never looks fake!
Not worth it for the price, I don's see much under eye coverage. Very liquid. Mac corrector is much better.
I use this in light bisque for my under eye area - it does the best job from all concealers I have ever tried to the date. I like slightly salmon color which conceals the blue undertones very well.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Organicare Daily Renewal Gentle Foaming Cleanser

Bought this because low hazard level on cosmeticdatabase.com. However this is very irritating - it burns inside my nose when I use it. There is nothing gentle or foaming about this cleanser (even the name says so). It does not remove my eye makeup while washing, but I do get a clean feeling after using it.

After a night out with a super heavy eye makeup, this is my go to product to remove all the layers of waterproof liners and mascaras. Does the best job!

I saw the review in Real Simple magazine and bought without checking my reliable MUA. What a mistake,this makeup remover does not work at. Lancome Bi-facil is much better.
I am one of those people super sensitive to smells. I get nauseated if the smell is too strong and it is really difficult for me to find a perfume that I could wear every day. DKNY Be Delicious is one scent that I love wearing and even don't mind putting it on in the morning, when my senses are supremely sensitive. I get a lot of compliments about how good I smell when I wear it. I keep repurchasing this over and over.
