Hair Styling Tools - L'Oreal Paris - Professional Steampod Hair Treatment & Straightening System

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/01/2016

I hesitated to buy this because I thought that the price is ridiculous for a hair styling tool, but if I had to pay for it again I would, without a second thought. I have no words to express the miracle that is the Steampod. All the positive reviews you have read are right.

I have fine, frizzy, dry-ish very long hair. My GHD's straightened it alright but my hair looked dried, flat …

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Blackest Black

Nothing has never "not-creased" on my hooded and oily eyelids. Nothing, ever until I tried this. First of all the quality of the gel and the brush is just spectacular. I managed to effortlessly create a wing as the brush is beautifully designed and the gel just glides on. It is rich and matte and expensive looking. So I just tried this in the morning, without any primers on, or powders …Read more

Bronzers - The Body Shop - Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder

5.0

Sep/05/2014

The best bronzer with a great price tag. Originally bought #2 and although it did warm up my face overall it was too light for summer, even on my fair skin. I do not tan a lot but I use a combination of #3 for light contouring and #2 for filling in or as a general powder during the summer. I think the lighter shade will be great for winter though as you can barely see it's there but gives …Read more

Brows - benefit Cosmetics - Gimme Brow + Volumizing Fiber Gel

Sep/05/2014

I have a sad excuse for brows, being sparse and over plucked in my younger days. I have tried everything there is and while I did get good results with Anastasia products, it was a daily hit or miss as sometimes I didn't have the patience to get it right.

This gives instant and I mean instant brows. It somehow fills in the hairs and makes them look full. I suddenly get well …

Mascara - Max Factor - Clump Defy Volumizing False Lash Effect Mascara

2.0

Apr/30/2014

This is just meh...Two points for doing what it promises for a while as it is true that upon application it doesn't clump. It looked ok for the first 10 applications but after this it seemed to dry out. I had no volume and it started flaking in a couple of hours also sticking my lashes together. So what i was left with was flakes and spidery, sparse, pathetic looking like glued together …Read more

Shampoo - JASÖN - extra rich biotin shampoo

Apr/24/2014

First of all let me say that I am biased as to the results of this shampoo as this particular one has the most vile fragrance I have ever experienced in anything cosmetic related. I am just baffled as to why something that markets itself as natural would select such a blatantly synthetic and plastic-y fragrance. To me it smelled like a musty wooden attic, with moldy linen, wet plastic chairs and …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Paint Pot - Perky

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/15/2014

I am baffled at the reviews here about Perky. I went to the MAC counter and asked for an eyeshadow that :
1. would not accentuate my hooded eyes that crease and wrinkle if the eyeshadow is too dry 2) wanted something that looks natural, can be used alone, will brighten my face subtly. Perky failed on all these points.

Firstly, I get scaly and uneven application. It instantly …

I love these so much. I use Copper mixed with Mandarin ( or is it Tangerine?) and sometimes a hint of light brown. My hair is strawberry blonde and it looses it's red especially during summer. I leave this on for three minutes and then rinse. My hair is amazingly moisturizer and I get to play with the colors, sometimes I want more orange and sometimes more red. I then use Aveda's Madder …Read more

Moisturizers - Neal's Yard Remedies - Frankincense Intense

5.0

Oct/24/2013

First of all I am a person who is usually happy that a moisturizing cream does not break out or produce rashes on my extra sensitive skin. I have very picky complexion in terms of having to use pure, natural and few ingredients or my skin will not be happy or look happy.

I was curious when I heard about this new anti-aging moisturizer but also hesitant because I thought it might be …
