Conditioner - Giovanni - Smooth As Silk Conditioner

This is, without a doubt, my holy grail conditioner.

My whole life, I've never been able to stay faithful to a shampoo or conditioner. I just never felt like one particular brand or product, high end or drugstore, was really all that amazing or better than the other. As long as I picked a product that was fit for my hair type, I was never disappointed or overwhelmed by its …

Hair Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Macadamia Deep Repair Masque

Sep/04/2012

I know that so many people love this product, but it sadly didn't really do anything to help my hair.

I got the small little packet size from Ulta just to try it out after hearing so many good things about this hair mask. I will say that I tend to have really strong, healthy hair as it is, but lately for the first time in my life, I've been playing around with heat (curling …

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Autumn Leaves

5.0

Aug/03/2012

I will admit, I largely had to have this lipstick because of the name. I love fall and I'll pretty much buy anything associated with it.

Even with that said, I was still a bit hesitating to buy this lipstick because I was worried the color wasn't all that it was cracked up to be. I agree with the previous reviewer that said some blogs made it look pure orange, and it some …

Lip Gloss - REVLON - Super Lustrous - Pink Afterglow 020

I'm one of the ones who's bothered by the chunky glitter in this gloss. This was the first super lustrous gloss I bought from Revlon, and I'm glad I let others talk me into getting other ones because if I had based my opinion of this line on pink afterglow, I would have written them off.

Pink Afterglow is a beautiful color, and I love how it looks on my lips, but the …

Polishes - Essie - Bikini so Teeny

Jun/04/2012

This is the perfect periwinkle blue color. It does have a very, very slight silver sheen to it, but on your nails, unless you look really carefully, it looks like a cream formula.

As with most Essie polishes, it's pretty streaky on the first coat, but magically, after the second coat, it looks fine. That's the only reason it's four lippies instead of five. But the color …

Lips - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain (All Shades)

Apr/10/2012

When I dish out 5-star reviews, it's kind of a big deal. I have to really adore the products. And I kind of adore these glossy stains.

I was actually skeptical when I bought this. I'm a lip product junkie, so I'll pretty much try anything that has decent reviews, and if it's in pretty packaging, I'm definitely sold. I pretty much expected this product to be a …

Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15

Really, I give this foundation 4.5 stars. I'm not sure if it's HG material just yet because I've only used it for about a month, but I can say that I really do love it.

I'm always on the hunt for my favorite foundation. When I got this one, the foundation to beat was Estee Lauder's DoubleWear. I was secretly hoping the Tarte foundation would beat out the EL …

Cleansers - Burt's Bees - Facial Cleansing Towelettes w/White Tea Extract

2.0

Apr/10/2012

I really wanted to love these wipes but I just didn't. At all. I used them as make-up removers before cleansing my face, and these wipes couldn't get off eye make-up. I don't use waterproof or smudgeproof eye make-up that often, and I went to bed with raccoon eyes most nights. These just didn't cut it. Really disappointing.

Cleansers - Boscia - MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil

Apr/10/2012

I'm obsessed with this make-up remover! I had searched high and low for a less expensive, all-natural make-up remover. I tried the Burt's Bees and Yes to Cucumber wipes, and both of those irritated my eyes and didn't get all my eye make-up off. I always went to bed with a hint of raccoon eyes, but I really wanted to stick to natural products for my skin.

I finally …

Polishes - REVLON - Cherries in the Snow

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/10/2012

I absolutely adore this color (both the nail polish and the lipstick, actually). BUT, the nail polish stained the heck out of my fingers. They were a bright pink for a day or two after taking it off. I've never had that happen before with other bright red/pink nail polishes, so that's why it didn't get 5 stars from me, and probably why I wouldn't personally buy it again if I …Read more
