Hair Color - Manic Panic - Temporary in Vampire Red

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/24/2016

I have very, dark brown hair - almost black. I used vampire red on the hair framing my face and neck (without bleach) for subtle streaks - applied to dry hair for a couple of hours. I was worried it wouldn't show up but it did! It wasn't vibrant and showed up dark, almost purple, but people kept stopping me to comment on my new red hair. I've been waiting for it to fade so I can …Read more

Concealers - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Concealer

1.0

Feb/24/2016

It looks like my Walmart quit carrying NYC products and their concealer stick is my holy grail, so I picked this one up instead because ELF has a good reputation.

Oh, hell no. This stick comes out to be an orange-red tone. Not only does it not match my skin even a little bit, I don't see how it's going to make my reddish undereye circles any better. Complete waste of money …

Styling Products - Suave - Professionals Flexible Control Hairspray (aerosol)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/26/2015

Took one lippie off cause I don't care for the smell, but other than that, it's a great spray. It's cheap and does what it says it does. I use it after I straighten my hair so it stays sleek in humidity or if I sweat. My hair stays straight and it's soft so you don't even know there's spray in it.

If I have really stubborn flyaways, I use a stronger …

Shampoo - Suave - Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smoothing Shampoo

3.0

Aug/18/2015

It's a decent shampoo - not good or bad. Suave products tend to work well with my hair more than other brands so I'm not disappointed but it didn't do anything spectacular, either. Smells incredible, though...kind of like a weirdly pleasant mixture of musk and fresh laundry lol. It's pretty strong and it lingers, and it's really the only reason I'd keep using this …Read more

Deodorants - Dove - Go fresh - cucumber & green tea scent

5.0

Mar/23/2015


My favorite deodorant. It smells soft and fresh without competing with my perfume. Also, don't remember if this is billed as an antiperspirant or just a deodorant but it does a decent job at controlling wetness. Sometimes I still sweat a little but overall, it keeps moisture away and I can definitely tell if I forget to use it. I use the solid stick and have also not encountered …

Concealers - NYC New York Color - Cover Stick in Medium

Jan/28/2015

This is my HG beauty product - period. If I had to give up everything beauty-related - makeup, hair products, perfumes, body creams, etc except for one thing, this is the product I would keep. I love it that much.

I've been buying it probably since I was 14 (I'm 26 now) for my undereye circles. I've tried more expensive concealers and different types (liquid and powder) …

Hair - Unlisted Brand - Fantasia - Hair Polisher Heat Protector Straightening Serum

Jun/29/2014

I have 1c Caucasian hair that is normal thickness and texture. I was using tresemme's heat spray and still fried my hair - just because it makes your hair look and feel nice after heat styling does NOT mean it's working! Cut off my damaged hair and bought this as part of my hair care change. It's loaded with cones so I believe it does a better job of protecting the hair than water …Read more

Styling Products - TRESemmé - Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/21/2014

I've actually purchased this a few times because I wanted to believe it was protecting my hair. I don't blow dry, but I flat ironed every day on a heat setting of 4 out of 30, so not too hot, but frequently enough to damage without protection. I would spray this stuff all over my head and a bottle didn't last me long. Then one day I went to put my natural hair into a pony tail and …Read more

Hair Treatments - Paul Brown Hawaii - Hapuna argan oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2014

Found this while looking for a product to ease the frizziness from too much heat styling. Out of all the argan oil products in the store, this had the highest concentration, and it works. I know damaged hair can't actually be repaired and I thought completely eliminating the frizz would be impossible - I use a keratin leave-in, Suave almond + shea butter shampoo and conditioner, and I even …Read more

Scrubs - Aveeno - Aveeno Active Naturals Smart Essentials Daily Detoxifying Scrub

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/06/2013

Bought this because I couldn't find Aveeno's Skin Brightening Daily Scrub when I went shopping.

It's alright. At first I thought it wasn't doing anything because I could hardly feel any beads but my skin was noticeably softer when I rinsed it off. The smell is a little weird, but not unpleasant. Very gentle - honestly, unless you have super, super sensitive skin or …
