    Aveda Be Curly Curl Controller

    Stinky Soft Curls

    This makes my hair look great! Not sticky or cruncy at all...super soft. It smells terrible though. Reminds me of curry.

  • CoverGirl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner

    CoverGirl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner

    Not quite what I had in mind...

    I bought this in the "Violet Voltage" color. I thought if it is advertised to look like liquid eyeliner but easier to put on, it should be super-smooth and vibrant. It did not go on smoothly- I had to go back and forth about three times to get a solid line. When I got it on, it was a muted plum color- definately not worthy of the "voltage" in the color name. It was really hard to put on over eyeshadow, and the color was covered up when I put shadow on top of it. I never understand the "smudger tip" on the opposite end either- it seems like color will just build up on it, and a q-tip or finger will work just fine. If i tried to smudgethis one, I imagine it would disappear altogether. Same quality as NYC or Wet'N Wild, but twice as much.

  • Covergirl LipPerfection Lipcolor

    Covergirl LipPerfection Lipcolor

    Nice color, long wearing, but not really lip perfection

    I have 3 of these in Soulmate, Euphoria, and Romance. I find the color on the end of the tube doesn't exactly match the color of the lipstick. I thought I would love Soulmate and Euphoria, but they were much brighter on. However, I bought Romance (a light pinkish-brown nude) because I wanted to try the idea that your lip color is 2 shades darker than your natural lip color. I think my lips are ugly naturally, and usually go for shimmery violets. I didn't think I would like it, but I was wrong. It makes my lips look so pretty! It seemed to dry out my lips a little, and I will not wear the same color for 7 days in a row, so I do not know if their 7-day lip perfection claim will hold true. Third time's the charm...Thanks Covergirl!

  • L'Oreal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Concentrated Shadow Duos

    I bought this in "Charged," a copper and bronze duo. My blue-green eyes really pop! Not exactly long-wearing as it had started to crease before evening. I will definately buy this again! Only has one small sponge-tipped applicator, though. I prefer one for each color (or double- tipped).

  • CoverGirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm

    CoverGirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm

    Pretty Sweet Lip Balm

    Sheer, shiny color that moisturizes without being sticky. Stays on fairly well when eating & drinking. I have 4 (spice, cinnamon, pinot, hibiscus), because its hard to find colors for my skin which has yellow undertones, but turns pink super-easily. All of the colors look good, but I have not found one that looks great. I keep them all in my purse, and the lids have all stayed on- packaged well. I wish there were more products like this on the market (in the drugstore price range)- I much prefer lip balm to super-gloopy gloss.

    Suave Professionals Sleek Shampoo

    Great Price- Not for Fine Hair

    This is super-cheap and smells delicious. It makes my hair very soft, but with my fine hair it starts to look greasy at night, and I definitely could not go another day without washing my hair.

  • Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner, Eye Candy Collection

    I bought the kit for blue eyes. I love the variety of colors from white to peach to bronze to gray. The peach color is the only one that looks bad on my skin, but with a tan it will probably look great. The applicator is bad for anything except lining your lashes. It streaks when you try to use it on your brow bone or your entire lid. I have to use another sponge tipped applicator. It would be great if they would use a dual-tipped applicator. It doesn't stay very well unless you use it wet (dampen the sponge-tip, not the eye shadow). Actually, this morning I highlighted my browbones with white, used baby blue on the lids (both dry), and used bronze on my lids. I can see a little highlighting, but no baby blue, but the bronze looks great!

  • L'Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional The One Sweep Eye Shadow

    I got the kit for blue eyes (shimmery white, baby blue, silver/gray), but the 1-sweep did not work. I have small eyes, and either the colors blended together or they did not come off the applicator. It was too light and came off uneven. However, when I used a smaller brush and sponge applicator, I loved the colors. I never thought I could wear blue eyeshadow without looking tacky, but this was beautiful!

  • Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus Humidity Resistant Volumizing Spray Mousse

    This makes my fine, thin hair look amazing! And it lasts forever...my hair was still full after sleeping on it! I love the spray nozzle. I would have given in 10 stars, but it is a little expensive. Now only if I could find this volume in a drugstore product...

  • Sexy Hair Spray and Play Hairspray

    My stylist used this along with Root Pump Plus, and my hair was awesomely full. I bought both, but this hairspray did not last for long after I left the salon. It will not hold my bangs out of my eyes. I much prefer Alberto VO5 24 hr hold, but I have not been able to find it for the past year. Need to find a better, cheaper hairspray!
