best straightener cream. doesnt weigh down or make hair sticky or oily. a dime size drop goes a long way. I have long thick hair and thats all I use. In conjunction with a hair straightener this is a great product and lasts. You will not be dissapointed!
Great product to use in the winter when you start to get the dry itchy scalp from the dry air. I am a regular user of Aveda products and only use their hair products, I only have to wash my hair once a week. All natural and organic, these products dont strip my hair of any natural oils. Doesnt dry out my hair or leave it limp. I recommend this product and others to everyone who needs to switch from their regular hair care regimen. I originally used herbal essences years ago, the original products and I was washing my hair almost every other day until I stumbled upon this. The price is steep esp for the treatment stuff but its worth the money. A little goes a long way!
Powder -Lancome - Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup

I abolsutely love this product. Due to the price its not cheap and I've tried to use cheaper products to replace it but I just cant! The color perfectly matches my skin, doesnt give me break outs and its great it if I want to switch from light to heavy coverage without looking obvious. It is definitely worth every penny and I will never go back to buying cheaper foundations. This product and the powder foundation - photogenic is great as well!
Powder -Cover Girl - Fresh complexion oil control makeup (powder foundation)

Terrible color and coverage. It looked fake and too powdery. Foundation is suppose to cover any imperfections and even your skin to make you look completely natural. It's not suppose ot make you look like you have a mask on and this product def made me look that way. Worst part is with drug store make-up is that you cannot try anything on and compare colors to your skin. The colors here were hard to find since its off colored i nits packaging. Would never buy again.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser Cream

I've used this product when I was younger and never realized how bad it actually was. It clogs your pores, doesn't remove all the make-up thats on your face let alone leaves an oily sheen on it. It's worth your time to spend a little more money and get better quality.
Best make-up soap remover. Takes off everything and leaves nothing behind. Sometimes in the winter I'll swithc off to the foaming normal skin version because it dries out your skin. Worth every penny of your money since most make-up removers dont take away everything. I am a very happy buyer of this product. No drug store product can compare.
Best scrub I've used. Gritty for my oily skin but enough to do the job right. I actually use this on my entire body since I hate body scrubs with the oils and greasy scents. This is simple and a little goes a long way. One tube lasts me a few months.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

Love this product.Ive used many products on my skin to moisturize but this is by far the best. Whether oil free or not, it doesnt make me break out and leaves my skin supple esp in the winter months. Would def recommend to all! I especially love CLinique for having all their products fragrance free because there is no need to put that in facial lotions.
Palettes -Too Faced - Quickie Chronicles - The Heartbreaker
vixen711 8/18/2008 12:12:00 AM
Out of all the quickie chronicles I own from this company, this is by far my favorite and most used. The eyeshadows esp the lighter color gets the most use out of it. The lipsticks and glosses are easily blendable and can be easily mxed. The peachy beige sheen is great to use from day to night and the quality of the products are great as well. I am very fair so for me to use peachy blush on my complexion gives me a healthy glow wo looking orange or fake. I wish they didn't discontinue this. I would def buy again and again!
I LOVE Too Faced products. This mascara is important to me because it makes my eyes pop. It's the best dept mascara on the market. Problem for me is the $29 sticker price. It's has good consistency and will seperate and define the lashes evenly. At night it is highly reccommended to use makeup remover and just dont wash your face with a cleanser because this adheres strongly to your lashes (which is great so u dont have black smudges which some mascaras tend to leave behind after a few hrs) that will be hard to remove and you could possibly rip out your lashes. Bad sounding but its true. I learned the hard way. Too Faced makeup remover is a great one to use on this. I would def buy again but I only buy every so often because I dont keep my mascaras long and the price is high.
Best bronzer I've ever used for my fair skin. The pink compliments without being too harsh or orange. I dont necessarily swish the colors around but use them individually. I love the shimmer and it gives u a healthy glow. I am a HUGE fan of Too Faced so I will definitely continue to buy this product and the bronzer -California in a compact color.
My staple to everyday makeup. Blacktrack is always in good use and with a thin angled brush I can make my eyes dramatic to just a simple line. I am not a fan of pencil eyeliner since itsa hard and tugs. This stuff stays on from day to night and no smearing. Once it dries your set. And of course MAC has the best colors and great quality!
I'm not a fan of the rubber bristles and differnt lengths of the wand but in comparison to other brands like Max Factor, Chanel and Cover Girl just to name a few who use the rubber bristles this is by far the best I've used. The 4 sided brush with one for lengthening and one for volume def does the job. Even for Rimmel, their formula is just as good because itys a good consistently that is not dry or clumpy. I would def buy again.
This is my all time favorite mascara. I've been using this product for about 7 years now. I have naturally long lashes and this seperates and makes them fat. Many mascaras I've used are either too wet and guky like Maybelline products or too dry like Loreal. For a cheap drug store product, Stretch and Seperate covers the job of both volume and lengthening. very easy to wash off. Everyone thinks I have fake lashes when I use this and it looks natural compared to some other mascaras that looks clumpy and icky. I would def buy again always!!
I've used a variety of mascaras from dept store to drug store. This product by far is the best next to Max Factor's Stretch and Seperate. It's cheap and it fattens my naturally long lashes. A few coats and people think I have fake lashes on. It's easy to wash off and doesn't irritate my eyes whatsoever. I would def recoomend esp when they come in the bonus packaging.
