Hair Treatments - OGX - Three Minute Miraculous Recovery Deep Conditioner

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/20/2013

With a name like that, this product makes some lofty claims. I'm not usually a sucker for such marketing gimmicks, but I figured I'd give it a try. The product had a faint pleasant but unidentifiable sent. It has a rich, creamy texture, but I had to use about an ounce to work through my thick, long hair, which seemed like a lot. I used this treatment 2-3 times a week for the past 3 …Read more

Conditioner - OGX - Anti-Breakage Keratin Therapy Conditioner

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/20/2013

I love the Organix brand overall. I decided to try this new product of theirs because I get severe split ends, and I was interested in Keratin treatment. This conditioner has a light, pleasant but unidentifiable sent. It is not a creamy as I typically prefer a conditioner to be due to the oil base. I did not like that it left an oily residue on my skin that was difficult to wash off afterwards …Read more

Shampoo - OGX - Anti Breakage Keratin oil

May/20/2013

I love the Organix brand overall. I decided to try this new product of theirs because I get severe split ends, and I was interested in Keratin treatment. This shampoo has a light, pleasant but unidentifiable sent. It does not create much lather, but that's typical of shampoos that try to use more natural ingredients and less sulphates. I did not like that it left an oily residue on my skin …Read more

Eye Primer - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Essential Eyelid Primer - Sheer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/27/2012

Quite awesome stuff for $1! I have found no need for more expensive eyelid primers because this stuff does the job just fine. It is easy to apply with the wand and blend in with your fingers. It dries into an invisible satiny powder finish. It helps keep all types of eyeshadows on longer; I've gotten a couple hours extra wear out of some particulary difficult e/s, as opposed to wearing them …Read more

Shampoo - OGX - Ever Straight Brazilian Keratin Therapy

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/27/2012

In general I love the haircare products from Organix. I usually use the Organix Coconut Conditioner, but I got this in a swap and wanted to try something new, because brazilian keratin is supposed to be great for making hair super sleek and shiny and reducing frizz. Interestingly enough, I found this conditioner to have the exact same consistency and produce the exact same results as the Organix …Read more

Cleansers - L'Oreal Paris - Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/27/2012

Have used all 4 formulas of this product. The deep cream cleanser (in pink and white bottle) is my favorite, and the cream cleanser for sensitive skin (blue and white bottle) really is gentle and good for sensitive skin. I have combo skin, so I enjoy the extra cleaning power of the cream cleanser. The cleanser of this product I would actually give about a 3. It cleans the face adequately and …Read more

Feb/24/2012

I was browsing Walgreens and saw this pallette, regularly retailed for $9.99 on sale for $3.99, so I snatched it up. I was a bit skeptical about purchacing this item, I figured it would be cheap ds quality and would have a weak streaky application that was not very pigmented, but I am happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised! The outside of this pallette is very cute, a dark brown faux croc …Read more

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Color Icon Trio - I'm Getting Sunburned

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/24/2012

I love the WnW color icon trios in general, but this was actually my least favorite of all of them. The bronze eyelid shade and pink browbone shade were both beautiful and wore well on me. (I'm NC20ish, blue eyes, dark blonde hair). But the brown crease shade absolutely KILLED the trio for me. In the container the brown looks promising, chocolaty with a bit of sparkle, but once it put it on …Read more

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Color Icon Trio - I'm Feeling Retro

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/24/2012

This is my absolute favorite of all the color icon trios I have tried so far. It also happened to be the first one I got, and I was a little wary of the bright colors while they were still in the packaging, but I wanted to try something different. Once I put them on, I found that I loved the way they looked on me! (NC 20ish, blue eyes, dark blonde hair). The magenta eyelid color really made my …Read more

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/16/2012

This perfume called Sinful was distributed by the clothing retailer Anchor Blue (aka Miller's Outpost) which went out of business in 2011. I recieved this perfume as a gift in highschool (2005) from my then bf, now DH. Even into adulthood it has remained my alltime favorite sent, and is surprisingly beautiful and complex for a sent that wouldn't be considered "HE". I am not …Read more
