TL;DR - Flat iron burnt my hair and melted itself unexpectedly after 4 years of moderate use - with pictures.


I bought my Solia flat iron about 4 years ago and I've always been very pleased with it. It heated up quickly, straightened my hair easily, and kept my hair straight for days regardless of humidity. I used this flat iron every time I styled my hair. So why have I …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Volume Mascara

I love this mascara, it's my HG. It doesn't clump, it holds the curl, and it lengthens, separates and adds volume while still looking very natural (I have it in the black-brown color). Occasionally it will flake a little through-out the day, but it's nothing drastic. The only down-side is the size of the applicator. It's quite large and difficult to maneuver, especially when …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eyeshadow in Electra

Jan/06/2011

When I bought Electra, I was looking for a frosty, true-silver color. It appears so in the pan and when I swatched it in the bad lighting of the MAC shop, I loved it. When I got home and applied it, however, Electra turned out to be a frosty steel blue color. At least on me, this color does not look silver at all, but is overwhelmingly blue and not what I was going for when I bought …Read more

I absolutely love this moisturizer, I won't use anything else any more. It's very creamy and seems like it would be heavy, but when applied, absorbs quickly, moisturizes just the right amount and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy, oily, or sticky. It has a sweet, mellow scent that is not over-powering and doesn't linger after applied. I have never had a problem with …Read more

Cleansers - Alba Botanica - Hawaiian Pineapple Enzyme Facial Cleanser

I love this cleanser. It has a nice, tropical fruit scent and is very gentle. I have never had any problems with skin irritation from it and it always does an excellent job removing dirt, oil, and make-up. I don't see the point of buying a separate make-up remover, so I usually use my facial cleanser on a cotton ball for that job and this stuff works great for removing make-up. It stings if …Read more

I've been very pleased with this toner. It is not harsh and has a pleasant, light, fruity scent; I think it smells like pink lemonade personally. I can see where other reviewers are coming from when they criticize the smell as annoying, but it doesn't bother me really; I'm more pleased that it doesn't make my face reek of alcohol like some toners do. My skin feels moisturized …Read more

Nov/25/2010

I bought this product mostly on whim... I was out of shampoo and conditioner and decided to try it out since I've generally been impressed by John Frieda products. I'm glad I did, this stuff has been a god-send.

Admittedly, I have not noticed any difference in the color of my hair. It does not appear brighter or different in that respect. But this may be because I don't …

Eye Primer - Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer

Dec/08/2009

I've been using Shadow Insurance for about a year now. For the first 5 months or so, I loved it. It prevented creasing (except in very hot weather or when I was sweating) and my shadows were more vibrant and lasted the whole day. Since you only need just a tiny bit of product, one tube lasted forever and I loved the packaging.

But this stuff goes bad fast. About 5 months after …
