I was so excited to try this product when I saw all the positive reviews on Ulta but I guess for my dry skin, it just didn't work. I tried every type of brush, primer and moisturizer with it to see if that would combat the chalkiness of it but it just didn't work. At the start of the day it looked decent but a few hours later, it would start to cake and crack. I am very fair-skinned and …Read more

Hair Color - Garnier - Herbashine semipermanent color

Nov/29/2011

I bought this is the Medium Auburn shade 565 and boy was I surprised when I rinsed and not in a good way! My hair is naturally a medium brown and this turned it a punky goth looking burgundy cherry red. It clashed horribly with my complexion (I am very fair) and it left my hair dry and staticky. Thankfully it doesn't have staying power as a semi-permanent and is fading more and more each …Read more

Styling Products - Suave - Touchable Finish extra hold hair spray

3.0

Although I love the hold this hairspray offers, it has one big issue that I can't tolerate--it leaves a white residue that flakes off big-time. At first I thought maybe I was spraying it too closely but I tried it at least 20 inches away and I could still see the build-up in my hair. I'm brunette so it is very obvious so I don't think I will be using this spray ever again.

I bought this concealer in light as a recommendation from another MUA member to cover up my dark circles. I must say I'm impressed so far! The key to applying it though is to make sure the underyeye area is well moisturized and use the littlest amount possible. I used to blend with my fingers but with this concealer, I find it is more natural looking to use a concealer brush. Another key to …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Olay - Regenerist Eye Lifting Serum

4.0

Apr/12/2011

This serum is light in texture and absorbs pretty quickly but I haven't noticed any firming or lifting to my eye area. I actually use it more as a primer since it's doesn't leave a residue. The cost is moderate for a drugstore product and now that I'm close to finishing the bottle, nothing seems to be coming out. I probably wouldn't buy it again unless it was on sale.

Lips - REVLON - Just Bitten Lip Stain- Forbidden

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/31/2011

My thoughts on this are lukewarm...I was hoping it would be more of a YLBB color but it is surprisingly dark and a little harsh on me. I've tried lipstains/markers in the past with little luck because they are usually so drying but I was hopeful this one would be different since it has a lipbalm on the other end. The lipbalm had a fine enough texture but didn't offer any moisture nor …Read more

Shampoo - Nexxus - Nexxus Pro Mend Split End Treatment Daily Shampoo

Mar/09/2011

I bought this along with the conditioner and had very high hopes. The shampoos smells nice and has a thick creamy texture so I assumed that my hair would be nicely moisturized after but I was wrong. The shampoo was likely not the problem so much as the conditioner though because when I rinsed the shampoo out, my hair did feel smooth. But once I used the conditioner and rinsed it out, a very …Read more

I had really high hopes for this line and initially in the shower, it felt good going on since it has a nice thick texture. But the problem occurred after I rinsed it out. I'm pretty sure I rinsed as thoroughly as normal but after I dried my hair, I felt a distinct heaviness and tackiness to my hair. As I was straightening it, it was more obvious and the shine I normally see in my hair was …Read more

Concealers - TEMPTU - Undereye Concealer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/10/2011

I had high hopes for this concealer since it is advertised as being both moisturizing and having an airbrush effect for coverage. It is moisturizing but that's about it. It is too light and sheer to hide much of anything, especially dark undereye circles like mine. It might be good for somebody looking for light, natural coverage I suppose but the price is a little steep when there are …Read more

Wow, I was pleasantly surprised at how well this worked! I've been using Morroccan Oil for a few years now but it is just too expensive for me to keep using so I thought I'd look for a cheaper alternative. This was on sale buy two get one free at Sally's so I thought I'd give it a try. I got scared when I saw it wasn't as dark in color as Morroccan but it works exactly …Read more
