This is a surprise love for me. I received a sample in a subscription service and wasn't sure I'd like it. Typically I only use clarifying/purifying masks. I tried this once at night and noticed a nice glow. I've since tried it twice in the morning before I shower, which I found makes for a beautiful glow that shows through my makeup for most of the day. Mind you, it's not …Read more

I am so happy I found this spray. I have super short (pixie) hair that is thin and limp, and without a lot of help, it won't hold any style. I have found this to be a great first step in my morning routine to help give my hair more body, counteracting the additional weight of the paste I use to add control. I add several squirts to my roots at the top of my head right after the shower and …Read more

Styling Products - Oribe - Dry Texturizing Spray

This did not work for me too well. I find this is okay as a dry shampoo but I've used cheaper products that work much better. What I really wanted this to do was add texture and volume to my short, thin and limp hair. Nope. In fact, it undid the volumizing effect of other products already in my hair. I would definitely not recommend this - you can find better for less.

I had high hopes due to the positive rating, but this just did not work for me. It made all of my manicures chip or peel within a few days, even with polish that last 7+ days with the Revlon gel basecoat.

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Color Tattoo - Bad to the Bronze / On and On Bronze

I think this is a great cream shadow, especially considering this is a drugstore product. This is long lasting - it keeps from creasing better than Urban Decay Primer Potion and Too Faced Shadow Insurance for me. It's a nice color, too, great for a one-and-done look. The only downside for me is that it dries out too quickly. Otherwise it's great!

I think this is okay, but not something I would repurchase. I can't recall the shade I bought, but it was the closest to my coloring (NC25). It was too pink. Also, the coverage wasn't full enough for me. It lasted 6 hours on me just fine but slowly went downhill from there. One positive is that it didn't make me oily.

I think this mascara changed my life. Okay, that might be exaggerating the situation a bit, but I do love this product. I love this more than any other mascara I've ever tried. It makes my lashes crazy long and thick, doesn't flake or smudge, doesn't clump and the regular (non-waterproof) doesn't run when my eyes tear. Probably one of my favorite products that I own.

I wish I can give this a 10! My favorite lip balm. I don't drink nearly enough water so my lips dry out easily. Anytime that happens, I just need to apply this balm a few times over the course of the day to return my lips to a normal state. Applying it twice a day keeps my lips happy and healthy!

Lipstick - MAKE UP FOR EVER - ROUGE ARTIST NATURAL Moisturizing Soft Shine Lipstick - Iridescent Copper Pink

I just wasn't that impressed with this lipstick. For this brand and this price, I expect a product that will last longer. It's gone after a cup of coffee. It has a nice texture - maybe a bit too much slip? - and it's a nice, neutral color, so those are pluses, but that doesn't matter if it doesn't last. I also don't care for the fragrance.
