Styling Products - Shea Moisture - Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Soufflé

Jul/06/2014

For reference, I have thick, 2b/2c, wavy/curly hair that goes halfway down my back. I initially tried this a couple times with the Shea moisture curl and style milk and had very poor results. My hair was frizzy, had no definition, and was left with a strange texture. I then tried this with the curl enhancing smoothie from the same brand and had FAR better results. It gives me smooth, defined …Read more

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium

I really love this stuff. I use it to set my foundation and it works wonderfully. Because it has a very slight luminous quality to it (not glittery or shimmery), it seems to make my foundation look more like skin and not flat or matte. I've never noticed any kind of cakiness using this, mostly because I don't use much and apply it with a fluffy powder brush. Some people have used this …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Oil-Control Foaming Cleanser- New

I normally have fairly clear skin with occasional acne. I had been using this for a few weeks and my acne had steadily been getting worse. I also noticed that my face would be quite oily by the end of the day, which doesn't normally happen. It didn't occur to me that it was this that was causing it until I read some of the other reviews here. I've been using a different cleanser …Read more

Okay, so the first time I put this on I couldn't help but laugh outloud, it was so bright. However, I'm not saying that that is a bad thing. Because, if applied very lightly, it gives a really pretty flush. And since it's so pigmented, it's going to last a really long time, because I'll be using very little each time. So, I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Eye Shadow - L'Oreal Paris - HiP Concentrated Duo - Dynamic #828

So far, I've been very pleased with all the HIP shadows I've used, and this one is no different. The color is very pretty, and not too bright. I like the packaging as well. Some have said it's bulky but I disagree. It is a nice round shape, and it's durable. It looks a lot more professional than many other cheap, funky-shaped drugstore shadows. My only gripe is, as others have …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Pearl Lipstick in Blushing Mauve

This is a pretty, mauve color in the tube, but I didn't particularly like it once I put it on. It seemed a lot more bright than in the tube, more pinkish. It might look better on someone with more cool-toned skin, but it didn't look very good on me. I did find that if you blot it down a bit, it can become a fairly tolerable shade. I'll probably continue to use it like this until I …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Aveeno - Positively Radiant Moisturizing Lotion

Aug/25/2007

I bought this hoping it would do as it says on the bottle, which is "visibly even skin tone and texture". Having used it for a little while now I haven't really seen any improvement in those areas. I think the only way it really evens out your skin tone is through bits of shimmer in the lotion. While this can work temporarily, I was looking for something a bit more permanent. As …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - REVLON - RV544 Tourmaline Ionic Hairdryer

Oct/17/2006

I have to agree with the rest of you guys.. this is an all-around great hairdryer. I previously used the Conair Ion Hairdryer which left my long, wavy, thick hair frizzy and very poofy. This Revlon hairdryer dries my hair much faster and leaves it straight and smooth. Now I only have to use my flat iron to smooth out the little poofiness that I still get(which is inevitable for me no matter what …Read more

Jun/22/2006

I've been growing out my hair so I don't get it cut very often, I also straighten my hair with an iron, because of this my ends have not been looking so great recently. So, I tried this and after only using it a few times my ends looked a lot better. Not just my ends but all of my hair looks a lot better now that I am using this. I recommend this to anyone who uses heat styling tools on …Read more

Jun/22/2006

I bought this recently because my hair is going through a dry spell and my normal frizz control product just wasn't working very well. I straighten my hair with an iron but when it's humid out my hair almost immediately starts to frizz up again. When I used this along with the anti-humidity hairspray it worked great. My hair wasn't frizzy at all when I was done styling and it …Read more
