Styling Products - Drybar - Southern Belle Volumizing Mousse

5.0

Dec/03/2013

I have very oily hair and I am always cautious about using styling products in my hair because it becomes weighed down and greasy looking so quickly after washing, but this mousse is amazing! I put a decent amount of product in my hair after towel drying and work it through with my fingers and then blowdry. It seems to hold my style longer without becoming oily nearly as quickly, and it also …Read more

Eye Primer - Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/03/2013

I have used this product twice, once when I got a sample, and a second time when I decided to purchase it and give it another try. I have very oily skin and I found that this eye primer made my eyeshadow crease very badly, very quickly. I am better off using no primer on my eyelids than using this product because it creases so badly.
I regularly use the MAC Paint Pot in Painterly and I …

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Belle De Jour

Nov/18/2013

I've been looking for a matte nude lip color (and I have wanted a pencil instead of a lipstick) for awhile and every color I previously tried just wasn't right. This color is perfect! I can't wear bright colored lipsticks and I prefer something matte because my skin is oily and I feel like a glossy finish just accentuates any shine that is on my face, especially if I am …Read more

Styling Products - Living Proof - Prime Style Extender

I received two samples of this from Sephora and I was so surprised how long they lasted! I am usually very cautious of putting products like this in my hair because it's oily, and a lot of hair products just weigh it down and add to the greasy stringy look that I end up with by 5pm each day after washing it. When I tried this product I really liked the smell, it's fresh and nice but …Read more

Shampoo - Carol's Daughter - Rosemary Mint Shampoo with Sea Moss

Nov/18/2013

I bought this shampoo from Sephora online after I've tried tons of pro hair products, and lots of other natural hair products as well. My hair is very oily. I have to wash it everyday and it is still oily by 5pm on a normal day.
This shampoo is very thick and hard to spread through your hair because of the texture and the thick plastic bottle, although it does lather fairly well for …

Shampoo - Alterna Haircare - Caviar Anti-Aging Moisture Shampoo

Oct/04/2013

I am only happy that I bought the travel size of this shampoo (and conditioner) first and not the larger ones.
I like that it is sulfate free and that you don't need much for it to lather, however I dislike the smell. I have oily hair/scalp and after using this my hair felt and looked instantly greasy and kind of straw-like. Within 3 hours it looked so bad that I sprayed it with the …

Masks - LUSH - Cupcake Mask

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/29/2013

I decided to try the Cupcake mask since I have oily blemish prone skin and I have tried the Mask of Magnaminty and the Brazened Honey masks and I absolutely love them both.
The Cupcake mask is supposed to be for oily, spotty skin to help reduce oil. It hardly has any exfoliating properties in it, and after leaving it on my face and washing it off (trying to scrub it off) I didn't …

Mascara - Urban Decay - Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara

Sep/29/2013

After buying so many mascaras lately, I have really liked a couple of them, but I have been trying so hard to find something decent that is waterproof for an upcoming trip south! An SA at Sephora recommended that I try Cannonball awhile ago, and for some reason I ignored her recommendation because it was a bit cheaper than I am used to and the packaging looked like drugstore packaging so I …Read more

Masks - LUSH - Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/26/2013

I was one of those people who swore I would never bother with that scented LUSH store. Then somehow I looked into it, and decided to try something, and with the natural ingredients seeming like a good idea to try, I got sucked in!
So far this is my favorite mask from LUSH. I don't find the smell overpowering, I find the scrubbing power to be just perfect, and adjustable - once you get …

Cleansers - LUSH - Dark Angels Facial Cleanser

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/26/2013

I have very oily skin that is prone to breakouts, and I like having a cleanser that will exfoliate my skin regularly. When I use something with a bit of exfoliant and natural ingredients once a day my skin seems to clear up and I no longer have any noticeable breakouts or redness on my face. I bought an $19 container of this from LUSH and figured it would be ok, since I haven't had any …Read more
