Hair Styling Tools - Goody - Spin Pin

These are really neat! I have medium length thick, wavy hair that's almost long enough to tie into a bun without a hairtie or bobby pins but these make my buns much more secure! I was mystified about these when I first heard about them but I'm convinced!

I still need to work on the placement of each one, I guess I'll watch youtube for that :]
I bought these at Ulta …

Lip Gloss - Illamasqua - Intense in Fierce

Beautiful, odd, interesting color. Was looking for a very violet or purple lipstick at sephora and one of the gals showed me this and it was love!

This gloss is super smooth and glossy, lasts pretty well, is super pigmented. Smells a bit synthetic but not in a bad way. The tube is slim and streamlined, I like that it isn't bulky.

By itself, this color is very shocking …

I love this product! In general I like TiGi's products, but this is definitely one of my favs. Ulta had a B2G2 going on and I picked this up on a whim and really like it! It smells amazing and has a nice light consitency. I haven't tried it on wet hair but I bet it'd help get rid of frizz (I use PM Super Skinny for that..)

I use about a pea sized amount for my whole …

Aug/11/2010

I enjoy these nail lacquers! American Apparel is my favorite store, so I might be sliiiighty biased, but on with the review.

I bought 3 for the 3/$15 deal in store.
I picked up:
Mouse: a beige sort of grey, reminds me a bit of OPI's You Don't Know Jacques (a HG color for me)
Malibu Green: a blue-green/ teal sort of color that is more green than …

Dry Shampoo - Oscar Blandi - Pronto Dry Shampoo [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Jul/11/2010

This is a HG product for me. It works great, lasts a long time, smells great, does what I need it to do.
My hair is naturally blonde and wavy but I wear it straight a couple times a week.
I section my hair off with a comb and do strips at a time, dotting this on and then brushing/ pulling my hands through to distribute. I focus more on my crown/ bangs because that's where I tend …

Hair Treatments - Redken - Blonde Glam Perfect Platinum

4.0

May/03/2010

I would like to give this product somewhere between a 3.5 and a 4... so I rounded up.
I am a natural blonde and my hair is pretty light, but I like to use a violet treatment to keep brassiness at bay. I really liked Redken's Pure Pearl treatment, and this is very close to that, but maybe not exactly the same. This works best when I use the shampoo and cond from this line... it really …

Tinted Moisturizer - Sonia Kashuk - Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 (tube)

Apr/14/2010

I bought this thinking that I would love it! I like the regular SK foundation so I figured this would be good too! Consistency is good, color match is good, but as soon as I put it on my face I hated it! I have large-ish pores and all this did was settle into them and accentuate the pores on my face! I have pretty clear skin so usually TMs work for me, but there must be some weird ingredient in …Read more

Apr/14/2010

I like this foundation a lot! Good coverage,comparable to some MAC foundations I've tried... and I like the yellow undertones! I am fair-light but I'm also part italian so I have a fairly yellow undertone (more "neutral" than yellow perhaps) and the match is pretty good! I wish there were more colors, I feel as though I'm in between colors right now. I have normal-dry …Read more

Dry Shampoo - TRESemmé - Fresh Start Dry Shampoo for Oily/Straight to Normal Hair

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/21/2010

I like this product a lot! I am a natural blonde and I only like to wash my hair every other day, but by the 2nd day my roots look greasy and in the past couple of years I've been trying all the different dry shampoos I can. I have wavy/normal hair but like to wear my hair straight some of the time so I chose this over the foam version.

My HG dry shampoo is the powder dry shampoo …

Fragrances - Victoria's Secret - Very Sexy for Her

Feb/07/2010

This is my "going out"(to bars, clubs, etc) scent, or my "date night" scent. I don't know what it is about this scent, but most every guy I've worn it around LOVES it. I get more compliments from men when wearing this than any of my other fragrances. I think this scent is appealing because it is not especially sweet or girly.

I've bought the EDP and …
