Hair Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Viviscal

Nov/28/2014

I've sort of cheated by rating this product. I've been using it for almost two weeks and I have been told to wait to see what happens after three months. I'm writing this review because I am very confused about the different ingredients from one Viviscal product to another. For example, I bought the Viviscal Professional at my derm's office and paid $60 for a thirty day …Read more

Styling Products - AVEDA - Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight

4.0

Aug/14/2014

Much to my amazement this product does what it says it will do. After using it three times, my hair is definitely almost straight. It's not Brazilian Blowout straight but it is straight. Also, it does speed up the drying process. The bad news is that it makes hair kind of dry looking. Also, if you start with sort of fine wispy hair, you end up with straight, fine, a bit less wispy hair …Read more

I generally like Clinique products but I hate this mascara. I bought it a few days ago and having thought about the $20 I paid for it, I am going to go back to the Clinique counter and return it. It is a clumpy mess. I wish I had read the MakeupAlley reviews before I bought it.

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Great Lash LE Vision in Violet

Apr/21/2014

I have pale blonde eyelashes (and not very many) and I cannot tolerate brown or black mascara in any form. Some are more irritating that others but all of them irritate my eyes. But I have found that blue and purple mascaras do not irritate. I have used Maybelline's Royal Blue and been happy with it (goes with my blue eyes). But the Violet is invisible. I have found that if I use the …Read more

Styling Products - L'Oreal Paris - ELVIVE Volume Filler Densifying Gelee

5.0

Apr/21/2014

I've been using three Volume Filler products (shampoo, conditioner, amplifying concentrate) for a few months and I am really happy with the results. I have fine blonde hair that waves in the wrong places even when I use a flat iron and has wispy flyaways. With the VF products my hair stays nice and straight and there are far fewer wisps. I just bought and used the fourth VF product …Read more

Mar/27/2014

I am so disappointed. For years, I bought this pink pomegranate sugar scrub made by Archipelago Inc. It came in a 19 ounce jar. A couple weeks ago, I went to Ulta to buy a jar and did not see it on the shelf. So I went on line and thought I found it there. I did see the packaging was different. It came in a 8 ounce jar and the design was different. I thought it was the same product …Read more

Feb/14/2014

The name of this shampoo is L'Oreal Volume Filler Thickening Shampoo (Filloxane) and it is packaged in a black container with purple trim. The 12.6 ounce container has the following on it - Feels like 2X more hair. It also says - Fine, Thin Hair. I have used the shampoo, conditioner (same 12.6 ounce packaging) and once-a-week concentrate (mix with conditioner). The first time was with …Read more

Feb/11/2014

This product is sold in the UK as a Fibrology product but in the USA it is Filloxane. When I was in London last month, I read about in the news and it was described as a new product line but it was not available at that time. Since then, it has become available. In the UK, it is packaged in aqua colored containers but in the USA the colors are black with purple trim. In the USA, you can find …Read more

Foundations - COVER FX - Total Cover Cream Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/16/2013

This morning I went to Sephora to have the Color Match process done on my face. I'm kind of tired of ending up with a foundation purchase that is just slightly off. I have dry skin with a few light brown spots and the thinning that comes with age. The very helpful sales rep applied CoverFX P20 to my face (after spot testing a few other products). The coverage is excellent. I am really …Read more

This rating is for ck-one #200 mascara. I think the shade is called violet. (I don't see any shade name on the box.) I have tried dozens of both black and brown mascaras and find my eyes allergic to all of them My eyes burn regardless of whether the mascaras are water soluble or not. Anyhow, one day I bought both clear and royal blue Maybelline Great Lash mascaras. While the clear …Read more
