Mascara - Laura Geller New York - Lash Boss Major Length, Volume, Curl Mascara

I really like this mascara. The 2 sided brush allows you to lengthen & volumize lashes. The color is a nice, rich black. It does not flake or irritate my eyes. It does smudge on me if I don’t wear a primer underneath. That is the reason I gave it 4 lippies instead of 5. The price is around $23.

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - Dry Shampoo

I am a big fan of this dry shampoo. The price is fair and the container lasts for a while. My hair is extremely oily and without a good dry shampoo, I have to wash it every day. I spray this in before I go to bed, massage it in and then brush. The next morning I am able to skip a shampoo without worrying about oily hair. This save me 1/2 hour every morning. It does not leave my hair looking …Read more

Hair - Drybar - TRIPLE SEC 3-in-1 Finishing Spray

4.0

Feb/23/2018

I really like this texturizing/volumizing spray. I have medium texture hair, but I have a lot of it. I use it to give my hair some oomph at the roots for nights out. It lasts longer than other texturizing sprays I’ve tried and also seems less drying. A little spray packs a big punch. My only complaints are that the scent, while not offensive, is very strong and the price is a little …Read more

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Cheek Stain in Flush

Count me as someone who loves this cheek stain. It works well with my oily skin, lasts all day and gives, sheer natural color to my cheeks. My only complaint is that I think you receive too much product. I will never be able to use all of it before it goes bad. I know Tarte has recently decreased the size, but I wish they would consistently offer a travel size option.

Apr/23/2017

This is by far my favorite dry shampoo and I have tried a lot, DS and salon. My hair is extremely oily and this product actually absorbs the oil without a white residue or funky, dirty, dry feel. I apply to the roots before bed, massage in and brush the excess out. The next morning, I apply a tiny bit more and my hair looks clean. The best part is that it's unscented and allows me to …Read more

Liquid - Lancôme - Teint Miracle Radiant Foundation

Apr/07/2017

This is tough product for me to review. When I first apply it, it makes my skin flawless. However, after 5-6 hours, it starts to look patchy and settles into fine lines. Unfortunately, I need my foundation to wear well for at least 10 hours. Even if I have time, I dislike having to touch up foundation (it never looks good on me without starting over). If you don't mind touching it up …Read more

Moisturizers - IT Cosmetics - Confidence In A Cream

I give this moisturizer a solid 'meh'. It moisturizers nicely, but I didn't notice any discernible difference from other moisturizers on the market. I definitely think it's over priced for the results it yields. St. Ives Collagen and Elastin produces the same results for me for 1/8th of the price.

I can't recommend it, but I can't say it's bad …

May/15/2016

I bought this based on MUA reviews & it did not disappoint! I have oily eyelids & this does not smudge or transfer (I don't use it on my waterline). It shows up nice & dark against my light skin & lasts all day. The best part is, I can tell a small difference in the length & thickness of my lashes. I wasn't expecting to, so that was a bonus :-). I also like the …Read more

Hair Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Pravana Hydrating Intensive Leave-In Treatment

1.0

Feb/21/2016

Well, this was a total flop for me. I was hoping I would love it as some reviewers did.

The smell was nice, but the product didn't detangle, soften or condition my hair. It left it feeling strawlike, tangled and dull. I did think the packaging was nice and the product was a pretty color.

For reference, my hair is medium texture, straight and hilighted.

Hair Treatments - Olaplex - Olaplex step 3 (Home treatment)

Feb/02/2016

There are a lot of mixed reviews on this product, so I thought I would share my experience. I have been using the home treatment for 6 weeks & I think this is an excellent product! I highlight my hair every 12 weeks & daily wash & heat style. So, yes my hair is damaged. When my stylist added Olaplex as part of my color routine a few months back, I noticed my hair felt healthier. …Read more
