Hair - Unlisted Brand - Proextensions 20" Clip-in Extensions

If you have naturally blonde or red hair then these will match your texture and volume. They are thin extensions, and kind of frail. For me, they are perfect, because that is my natural hair texture. I buy them to add highlights or lowlights, and a little length whenever I get a big haircut, but not to add a lot of thickness. For someone with thick brown Spanish or Asian hair these will probably …Read more

Lip Gloss - CLARINS - Colour Quench Lip Balm - 04 Watermelon

May/18/2012

I don't actually know how much this cost because I stole it from my mom. This is the best colored gloss. It's shiny and nice and is so much more pigmented than I expected. I thought it was just going to be like juicy tubes, or everything else I'm familiar with, but it was a nice surprise to realize I could use this all alone without layers of color. I think I will try some more …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Colorescience - Soothing Smoothing Skin Brightening Line Tamer

3.0

May/18/2012

This product smells really nice. It spreads on easily and I think I use less foundation when I use this primer. Other than that I don't think it does anything for me. I don't notice my skin being any brighter or fresher looking than normal. It definitely doesn't help with my facial lines, or fill in my pores. My foundation and concealer don't seem to last very long when I use …Read more

Cleansers - DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil

May/18/2012

This is one of my favorite cleansing oils. I think it emulsifies really well with warm water, removes makeup well, and rinses off my face leaving my skin feeling clean but supple, not stripped the way soap does. I stopped using this so I could buy the shu uemera purifying cleansing oil and that was a big mistake. The shu oil feels greasy in comparison and clogs my pores. There are still a few …Read more

I love this product. This is the color I use when I am tan. I never used to be able to use dry concealers until I changed my foundation, but now that I use a moister formula on my face I really appreciate this product. Creamy concealers just slide right off my face and into my smile wrinkles. This product works perfectly. I swipe it on under my eyes, pat the edges with my fingertip to blend, and …Read more

This may be a discontinued color, but I have this in Earth. I love it. I love the color, but I also love the blush. I use it as a blush when I tan, and it works nicely. I can blend it or layer it with other colors without it looking heavy or chalky. I contour my nose and under my chin with it to make my features appear sharper. I use it as eyeshadow sometimes, in the crease, and it looks very …Read more

Shampoo - Clairol - Professional Shimmer Lights Shampoo - Blonde & Silver

3.0

May/18/2012

This product works really well. I bleached my hair at home and left this on for 15 minutes when I washed out the bleach. It toned down the ends to the point where I didn't even need to use a hair color toner on them. The rest of my hair was more brassy than that, but I'm sure this will be invaluable for keeping my pale platinum blonde hair fresh. I probably won't buy another bottle …Read more

I bleached my hair at home and bought this to help mend it afterward. It didn't feel like it did much at first, but I used it again 24 hours later and my hair felt a lot softer. Not soft like before the bleach, but definitely more pliable. I'm sure that by the end of the month, if I use it a few times a week, it will be noticeably improved.

Hair Color - Clairol - Professional - 7th Stage Cream Highlighter

May/18/2012

This worked like a dream. I had level 7 auburn hair, almost to my waist, that I had been coloring with demi permanent colors over my natural blah blonde. I mixed up a batch of this stuff with 3 activator packets & 20 volume developer and left it on for about 30 minutes under a plastic shower cap. Then I mixed up another batch and added it to my roots for another 30 minutes under the shower …Read more

Hair Color - Wella - Color Charm White Lady Toner

May/18/2012

This product works all right. I bleached my hair, then washed with shimmer lights purple shampoo. I left that on for 15 minutes, then put the toner in for about 10 minutes. I STRONGLY recommend a porosity equalizer with this stuff. The ends of my hair were seriously purple for about a week. Now they are a kind of dull silver grey. The rest of my hair turned out exactly how I wanted, so I have to …Read more
