    CoverGirl Cheekers Bronzer

    Way too Pigmented!

    This belongs in a little kid's dress up kit. Its way too pigmented and after maybe 3 minutes it slides back off your skin. Even with primer, foundation and Urban Decay All Nighter it completely disappeared every time. Not to mention the amount you get for your money is tiny! Comparibly you could buy almost any luxe bronzer for a better value than this tiny pot

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara

    I didn't like this mascara at all you can only put one layer otherwise it clumps like crazy and it dried out after only 2 weeks! Also I don't reccomend this to people with sensitivities it made my eyes itch like crazy and I experienced some lash loss as well. Don't waste your money! buy yourself a nice mascara for double the price, you won't be disappointed and it will last a lot longer than all these Covergirl ones...

  • Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Extra-Strength Formula

    I think this is a pretty good value. I like the grape-like smell (had to get used to it actually) and I like that it absorbs quickly and easily to my hair. I had to use it pretty heavily which made me go through it pretty fast, I also have long, thick hair so I prefer things to be in large quantities and this just wasn't big enough for me. I enjoyed it and John Freida is a pretty dependable brand overall but he doesn't have much that blows me away either....

  • Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash

    This product is probably one of my favorite products I have ever tried bar none. I have just about the most difficult skin type possible, combination and sensitive, Im no stranger to red blotches, cystic acne, dry patches and all the rest. This transformed my face in just one pea sized amount wash. It took care of the whole laundry list with one powerful, organic shot. The smell is very earthy, like wheatgrass or bark, but I don't mind it since I'm used to having to use natural or organic products. I had one pimple next to my nose that cleared up by morning after this wash as well as moisturizing dry problem areas such as around my eyes and the outer rim of my face efficiently and effectively. The best part was that it was so gentle I could use it to rinse my remaining mascara off my eyes and I really felt every pore was deeply cleaned and equally moisturized to reverse damage and balance my face so it doesn't overproduce or underproduce my natural oils. I really cannot say enough about it, I'm obsessed, I actually look foward to washing my face. I have become an Origins fan and customer for life based off of this one product! I am not cheap with my face washes and i happened to have a very good USDA organic facial cleanser that I gave to my husband because all I can see is this in my life from now on!

  • Biosilk Silk Therapy

    Biosilk Silk Therapy

    Perfect balance!

    This is fabulous! I have been waiting a long time to find this on sale so I could try it and I ended up getting 10 ounces for only $18.99. I was so excited I tried it immediately! I was really blown away. This product has that salon smell (I like it even though its pretty strong) and the salon results. I feel my hair absorbing it but not so fast that starts to make me second guess the quality. My hair definately feels shiny, soft and the ends feel very healthy after dowsing my hair last night before bed. It also seems that it can double as a heat protector (it feels silicone based but I can't tell exactly) I didn't give it a ten because Im picky about what I put on my body and I didn't recognize one single ingredient on the back, so far so good but with all these weird chemicals I really hope its not going to make me break out. On the other hand the first ingredient IS NOT water which is a way that brands like to save money and Ive heard multiple times if the first ingedient is water the hair will seem improved but won't really sink to the root where it needs to go. I REALLY REALLY REALLY love these results and I would suggest it for all hair types!

  • Kenra Platinum Hot Spray

    Kenra Platinum Hot Spray

    Long lasting frizz fighter!

    I bought this when I worked at a hair straightener kiosk because all I did all day was fix parts of my hair with the flat iron and I started to become very concerned with my hair. It became broken, dry and damaged. I went to Trade Secret and the salesperson suggested this to me. First of all this is a great value for a brand as high quality as Kenra. You get about 10 ounces for $20-$30 and all you need is a thin layer over all your hair. I have to say my hair definately improved after only a few uses because my hair was finally given time and space to repair itself, not only that but being that I was in a humid city(Eugene, OR) this really helped keep my hair from frizzing. I would definately purchase this product again, the only reason I don't give it a 10 if because it does leave a little bit of a starchy feel to the hair and I don't like that feeling so I always just seal with my serum afterwards.

  • Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser

    I have very problematic skin. If its not thing its another, I have sensitive, combination skin so everyday is a new suprise. I have found the best thing for my skin is thin but creamy cleansers that contain little to no chemicals. Estee Lauder is obviously a wonderful name with a fabulous reputation and my friend suggested this to me when I was having a skin emergency. It definately evened out my skin tone and even improved the clarity of my skin quite a bit. I felt like all the dirt and oil literally "splashed away" and I felt clean but not dry. Great product and very good value for your money.

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

    Club, check. beach, check. sweaty, hot, humid miami weather check. This shadow primer is so fab I can't even contain myself. First of all let me start by saying Too Faced has become in my top 5 beauty brands because the packaging is adorable, the products are VERY powerful, They do exactly what they say they will do and they give you large quantities for more than reasonable pricing. This product is a wow product no questions asked. This primer makes my eye shadow (I only use mineral due to my super sensitive skin) richer and more pigmented, Keeps my eyeshadow from creasing or slowly melting off my face as the day goes on, It slightly camoflauges the "veiny" look of your lids if you want to go bare and best of all I know Im saving money because my eyeshadow is sticking to exactly where I want it instead of falling all down my lashes and cheeks making a bigger mess and waste of perfectly good eyeshadow! I have had mine for over 2 months because all you need is a tiny amount. Great value and probably one of the few products Im going to stick with, which is big coming from me because I'm addicted to trying new products and then of course reviewing on here lol!

  • Fresh Memoirs of a Geisha Bath, With Sake

    Somebody bought me this for my birthday one year and If I could remember who that person was I would kiss them! This was one of the greatest discoveries of my beauty life. The smell is so amazing and relaxing and musky, but yet so delicate. Also the oil is EXTREMELY nourishing it responds very well to the skin and absorbs nicely and locks moisture in all day so you don't need a lotion. I used this very carefully and slowly because I didn't know the prices of Fresh products were so high before I recieved it. I can say this is so worth the price and thinking back mine did last a pretty good amount of time. Money is just not a factor when you feel what its like to be this relaxed and pampered!!!

  • Montagne Jeunesse 5 Minute Miracle Face Tonic Dead Sea Anti-Stress

    whenever Im looking for a little pick-me-up I get one of these little one time use masks from CVS. They are very cheap and actually work incredibly. They are fun to use because they are nice and thick and dry evenly (unlike other messy, goopy masks) They are a very "no bs" approach to skin the mask does what it says nothing more nothing less. I think its a great value and almost all my friends use them as well!
