This solves most of my hair problems! It moisturizes my coarse, textured, and thick hair, smells divine, and has just enough wax/hold in it to tame my frizziness and encourages my natural, loose waves. I would say this is more of a curl-shaping cream or pomade than a conditioning product. When I need more moisturizing power, I put a light oil on the ends of my hair. I like to air dry my hair at …Read more

After I finished my last tube of concealer, I decided to give this a try and see what the hype was all about. I had wanted to purchase this earlier, but NARS did not make a shade that suited my fair, neutral/olive skin tone (NC20) until they recently came out with Creme Brulee. This is definitely a nice concealer, but I don't think it's as amazing as many of us have been led to …Read more

Okay, so I had hope for this after purchasing it off of Amazon for ~$12USD on a whim, going off of the generally good reviews the product had. It wears pretty nicely, and as long as you don't apply too much, the product provides a beautiful no-makeup makeup look - it evens you out and covers minor discoloration, and smooths pores/skin texture (like a primer). It doesn't cover …Read more

I just got this in Yuzu. Not only is the smell wonderful (citrus/floral without smelling like detergent), but it isn't too greasy or too watery like a lot of "natural" lotions I have tried. This lotions is nice and rich but not heavy feeling, a good everyday body lotion. Going to try other Shi Kai products because of this!

I will admit that the texture of this product is not the most convenient, but it is really worth it. This lip balm's main ingredient is cocoa butter, and like many other Lush products, it seems like it is used in its purest form, which explains why this lip balm is impossible to use without it being warmed up. With that said, I like to scrape a little chunk of it off and and as soon as I …Read more

This is a nice thing to throw on if you're looking for something subtle - this is definitely just an alternative to clear nailpolish or a nail polish you can use for a french manicure. Pretty, but skip it if you're looking for anything more than just adding a finish to naked nails.

Not a miracle product, but keeps mild acne at bay without overdrying. I noticed that my bumps and whiteheads have not been as prevalent since using this at night about two months ago (also used with witchhazel toner). Best of all it's nice and cheap! I wish that the pump on the bottle didn't dispense so much product, but no matter. I am afraid that this is getting discontinued b/c I …Read more

Too Faced just re-released their single shadows, so technically I'm reviewing Petals to the Metal Exotic Color Eyeshadow, but it's the same shade. I was afraid that this would make me look sick, but upon trying it on (I have neutral, NC/NW20 skin), it looked great and brought out the green in my eyes. You definitely need to use concealer for this, and maybe eye drops if you're …Read more

I am so sad this is discontinued. This shampoo and conditioner was AMAZING. This left my thick and frizz-prone hair so smooth and soft - I was even able to walk out of the house with wet hair without fear of ending up with a full-on 'fro later on in the day. It smelled good, was dirt cheap, and was probably my HG shampoo/conditioner. Damn it.
P.S.: Any recommendations for a good …
