Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Butter Gloss - Praline

4.0

Apr/10/2016

I bought this on a whim, as I don't usually use lip products. I'd heard a lot of good things about the Butter Glosses and thought this one seemed nude-y and neutral enough to be versatile. I ended up really liking it.

The packaging is exactly what I like: sleek, functional, not too "busy" or distracting. The lid closes securely and the doe foot applicator is sturdy …

Shampoo - Renpure - Ren Rosemary Mint Cleansing Conditioner

Apr/10/2016

(This review is for the Vanilla Mint Cleansing Conditioner.)

I like this product, but I'm not sure if I'd repurchase or not. I've used a full bottle of it and I have no major complaints, but I rarely repurchase a hair product unless it really impresses me.

First things first: The product itself is a medium-thick, creamy conditioner. It doesn't have a ton …

Cleansers - Trader Joe's - Nourish All-In-One Facial Cleanser

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/16/2016

I'm sad to give this a "meh" review because I love Trader Joe's in general, but this just didn't do it for me.

The cleanser itself is a gel consistency and produces a light, frothy lather. It has no smell at all (fragrance-sensitive folks, rejoice!). It feels nice on the skin and does a relatively good job of cleansing. If you wear light makeup, this will …

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette - Nude Mood

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/10/2016

I bought this after reading raves about it. I have mostly shimmer eyeshadows, so I was interested in a nice neutral, matte palette that I could combine with what I already have to give me a bit more versatility.

For me, this palette started with a lot of potential, but in the end, it was overhyped and unusable. First, the pros. The shades are truly matte across the board. All of the …

Foundations - wet n wild - Coverall Cream Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/24/2016

I've used up an entire bottle of this foundation. It's okay, but I certainly don't think it's lived up to the hype.

I have the color "Fair." It's still a little too dark and pink for my very fair, neutral skin, but it honestly does a better job of fulfilling a halfway decent "fair" color than most drugstore foundations do. I like the tube …

Lip Gloss - Burt's Bees - Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer Plum

5.0

Feb/22/2016

I love this lip balm. I tried it completely on a whim one day and I'm so glad I did. Contrary to the name, it's not shimmery at all. On me, it's a deep, cool-toned plum color. I almost never wear lip color (just clear balm), but when I do, this is my go-to.

I like that the tube/stick is a slimmer size as it makes this easy to apply without getting it everywhere. It …

Conditioner - Joico - Color Endurance Conditioner

1.0

Feb/22/2016

I bought a set of this conditioner and the matching shampoo from my stylist, who recommended it for my dry, color-treated hair.

The conditioner is thick and creamy, and it detangled my hair well. That's where the positives end.

Beyond that, pretty much all of the comments I mentioned on my shampoo review apply here. To sum up: this combo made the ends of my hair dry …

Shampoo - Joico - Color Endurance Color Lock Shampoo

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/22/2016

I bought a set of this shampoo and the matching conditioner from my stylist, who recommended it for my dry, color-treated hair.

This shampoo lathered well, but it never felt like it got my hair totally clean. I often found myself double-shampooing (which I rarely do) because it felt like it wasn't getting my scalp clean. I would wash/condition my hair, dry it, and style it only to …

Hair Treatments - DermOrganic - Leave In Treatment with Argan Oil

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/22/2016

This is your typical silicone-based argan oil hair serum. It has a sweet, almost nutty smell and a slippery, oily feel. Used in a small amount, it left my hair with some extra shine, helped moderately with frizz, and made my hair feel silkier. Used in too large of an amount, it made my hair feel greasy and look a little stringy. The same is true of pretty much every other serum of this type that …Read more

Conditioner - DermOrganic - Intensive Hair Repair Masque

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/22/2016

I got this in a sampler set at Ulta, which included this, the shampoo, and the leave-in treatment.

For people who don't like the smell of the shampoo, I'm happy to report that the masque smells much better. It's a clean, vaguely sweet/nutty kind of smell - typical of how argan oil hair products often smell.

The masque is a thick conditioner with a good amount …
