Apr/07/2018

My Holy Grail of heat protectants!! I’m an AA female with semi-relaxed hair, 40+, and I credit CHI’s 44 Iron Guard heat protectant with saving my hair from disaster and encouraging growth! I use it daily before curling dry hair, plus on blowouts/flat irons. I have tried MANY other heat protectants, but this one is the only one that visibly saves my ends. I spray generously (6 - 9 pumps; I try …Read more

Eye Shadow - Boots - Stay Perfect Smoothing Eyeshadow - Bronze

5.0

Aug/30/2015

The Bronze is my HG daily eye shadow. It's a sheer pinky brown that brightens and illuminates the eyelid, as opposed to really delivering a whole lot of color.

It's great as a primer/base for other, deeper colors when I want a more "done up" look, and it doesn't streak, crease or wear off during the day. I have mature-ish skin and it doesn't accentuate …

Skincare - Body - Unlisted Brand - High Time - Bump Stopper 2

Jul/06/2013

High Time makes Bump Stopper Sensitive Skin and Bump Stopper 2, which are sold in the men's shaving department and targeted for aggressive ingrown hairs caused by shaving on African American men. But guess what??? The products work for everyone! I wish the company would conduct a major marketing campaign geared towards women, because it's been a lifesaver for me!

I started …

Treatments - Unlisted Brand - African Royale - Hot Six Oil

I adore this when used sparingly as a moisturizer for my relaxed hair, but what I want to RAVE about with this review is Hot Six Oil as . . . the BEST foot treatment oil ever!!! I have horrendously dry and calloused feet, and even putting Vaseline on them nightly didn't completely rehabilitate them. But nightly rubdowns with H.S.O. have proven miraculous! I transfer into a small plastic …Read more

Concealers - Black Opal - Flawless Perfecting Concealer Stick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/14/2013

UPDATE DEC 2015: I've been using this for years now and it's become my go-to concealer. I've used MakeUp Forever, Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier, but I actually prefer the Black Opal one because T doesn't dry out under my eyes & settle into fine wrinkles, which unfortunately the others seem to. -- I bought this on a whim looking for a quickie drugstore option to replace …Read more

Blush - Josie Maran Cosmetics - Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee

This is my HG of "cream"-based cheek color. I LOVE IT!!! It's hard to get out of the jar at first -- I separated a bit with a hairpin into a little "pile" in the jar to work with when I first opened it. After a while, it's easier to swish a finger around to pick up product.

The color is clear and sheer, perfect for the apples and tops of your cheeks, and …
