Holy grail. This is the first conditioner I committed to (after 35 years of bouncing around and trying everything. I have straight, fine hair, but a ton of it and it snarls easily. The top of my head tends to go limp, but from the ears down, it is tangled and frizzy, but with this, I can get a comb through even the worst, wind-blown wrecks. For being silicone-free, that is amazing. It rinses …Read more

My hair is shoulder blade length, highlighted, fine, but a ton of it so I'm always walking a fine line between tangles/frizzy at the ends, or greasy and weighted down. Since Redken has chosen not to bring back Addictive, I thought this might be similar as a dual purpose leave in or wash out. It's not like Addictive--the consistency is more creamy than oily, but the effects are …Read more

Holy cow- this is the most under-rated product for that natural movie star perfect glow. It's the most lovely natural sheen: true shimmer, not glitter. I'm too old for glitter and didn't even like it when I was a teen and a lot of products, even reviews that say "shimmer" end up = glitter. But not this! The type of shimmer reminds me of my previous love, MAC Pearl Cream …Read more

Please chock some of my review up to unfulfulled expectations: I was craving a banana scent, but not overly foody, if that seems possible. I wanting something comforting, vaguey sweet, vaguely banana, with floral notes. At no point did I want to smell like laffy-taffy. Miller Harris Couer D'ete is pretty darn close to what I want, but the floral tends to melt and the woods becomes a bit …Read more

Holy grail bronzer! I generally like a natural look and this delivers. I have an off skintone- not cool, not warm, and bronzers either make me look dirty, orange, or are too pink. This is perfect! The wear is pretty good and it blends well on bare skin.
Since shimmer can accent my pores in daylight, I like that this is non-shimmer. If I feel like adding a little extra glimmer, I put a …

I wasn't sure about this color, but I broke down in a PMS-driven fit of spending and I am glad I did. The color looks like muddy brown with a fine gold shimmer- you would never call it forest- BUT, there is a slight green cast to the base, which makes all the difference. This is my favorite shades of BB liners, right up there with bronze shimmer.
I've had numerous shades of BB …

Holy grail! I have baby fine hair, but a lot of it, which has been highlighted and deals with sun, sweat, wind and constant washing. Naturally it feels pretty good, but with what I put it through, it looses some of its softness, frequently tangles, and I'm in a constant battle between smoothing the dry ends and weigh it down. Added to that battle is my frustration with silicones. I …Read more

I swapped for this and I am so glad I did. The texture is so light I don't feel like I'm wearing anything, even when I layered the product. It wears like iron on bare skin, though with some primers, putting it on too thickly can result in beading. The color is gorgeous- a rich brown that isn't too red or too grey. The real payoff for these is in the finish, though. Quite frankly …Read more

I am always looking for ways to make my nails look better against my skin tone. I'm not very dark, but I have a slight yellow, but not olive, skin tone on my hands (my face is a little more cool toned). Lots of nail colors clash with my skin, and even my natural nail bed color looks kind of muddy or blah. I adore Color Club's french manicure basecoat because it brightens the nails and …Read more

I got this in Indigo and I love it. I had been searching for this type of color in a gel liner for a few years- not too purple, not just navy blue. I tried BB sapphire ink but it just looked blah on my light, neutral-ish/slightly yellow skin. While I do have a like BB Violet ink, I was hoping a slighly more blue color would whiten & brighten my hazely brown eyes. so after trying almost every …Read more
