Yes, I did the forbidden thing, I broke down and got this on eBay for 80 dollars. Typically I don't like to support the black market because it encourages further exploitation of peoples' wants and needs. But the alternative was pining for months, maybe years, traveling across oceans to find it and so on and so forth... So, now my precious is here!
I got this even though I …

I won't give you the shampoo commercial spiel about how wonderfully luscious my locks became using this product. I will just tell you how people reacted to the results. The day after I used it three random people (one of which is a middle aged, grumpy man with no interest in beauty or women's hair) did double takes and then stroked my hair while cooing words of admiration. Enough said!

Tried it for the first time yesterday, New year's eve!!! Had my makeup on for 12 hours before I got to bed. When I took it off the eye makeup was still flawless! I never knew, I never believed that a primer could really do that. I thought it was marketing mumbo-jumbo but I was so wrong.
I had done a very black and glittery smoky eye and expected a ton of fall out, there was literally …

The OCM can give you truly amazing results, but it has it's pitfalls and needs to be calibrated to your specific skin type. I will give you the benefit of the knowledge I have amassed through trial and error.

First of all read up on the basics at the site: www.theoilcleansingmethod.com. This is an excellent tutorial.

For which oil to use besides castor, I personally …

The feel of this deep conditioner is creamy and luxurious, I'll give you that. And it smells nice too, like a tropical vacation. But for the price I expected much more. I expected bounce, shine and texture in my hair. Softness extraordinaire. I expected looking like a young Elle MacPherson running in slo-mo on the beach. I got none of that. Maybe I expected too much.
The results are …

This lovely gloss is a dupe for the sadly discontinued "Praline" Glossimer. I've been hunting high and low for Praline but to no avail. When I saw this one I couldn't believe my luck. It's the perfect MLBB color! I think it would flatter almost everyone.

I usually hate Chanel perfumes with a vengeance. Old ladyish, cloying, headache inducing...the usual stuff. But this one is amazing! It's obviously ridiculous to recommend a perfume since it's all up to the person's chemistry. Things that smell like hell on me can be delicious on someone else and vice versa. But here's my two cents: This one rocks!

I'm so on the fence about this mascara...It did make my lashes long, fat and dramatic I must admit. And there was no flaking and no panda eyes which I always get after an hour from, say...Diorshow Blackout. But the scent was so harsh and chemical. I could actually smell it an hour later....Smell a mascara??? That has never happened to me before!
Edit: I partytested Drama last night! …

I have extremely reactive, sensitive skin. Red splotches, flakes, random pimples...you get the picture. Needless to say I've tried everything. And I in my desperation I have gradually veered towards more and more expensive stuff. I recently even considered La Mer against my better judgement, it would probably break me out like crazy. Little did I know salvation was in my kitchen cupboard and …Read more
