Smooth, but pricy.
I have heard great things about this TIGI line, that I decided to give it a try after using TIGI Control Freak for over a year. So I was excited when I first opened the bottle, the conditioner was nice and thick, distributed evenly through my hair, and had a nice & light scent. I left the conditioner in for 3 minutes, rinse, blow-dried....and I noticeably have less fly-aways than my previous condition (even before using smoothing serum!). The only downside is the price. If you have really long hair like me and go through conditioner quickly, a 750 ML bottle will cost you around $40.

One of the best inventions evah!
A friend from work told me how great this product is (her skin looks absolutely radiant)....I can't believe I didn't learn about the Clarisonic sooner! After using it for just one week, I immediately noticed smaller pores, my skin looks polished, my make-up is completely off, and I have less breakouts. I have been using this for 5 months now and I can't part with it. Definitely worth every penny! :)

It really works! It's a must-have!
My eyelids tend to get oily within a few hours after applying eye make-up. I have tried several eye shadow primers on the market...by midday, my eye shadow/eyeliner still creases and smears! Tired of wasting money, I started to searched on this website for a primer that might actually work. I have read positive reviews on this product and decided to try. I applied the following morning and by the time I got home from work, my eye make-up was still in place! It blended in so well, wasn't streaky, and it didn't feel too dry. This stuff is fabulous!

Great product, I just wished it came in more than 4 shades...
Great powder, I love that it does not contain talc and it contains moisturizers. I notice a difference in the texture of my skin after using it for a week. The packaging is especially great, I love the shaver. You just turn the dial to the right amount you want to use, no mess and it's fresh. Even though it is a little pricey, it goes a long way. It will last longer than most mineral powders on the market....only because of the shaver, you never waste. The only down side is the limited shades it comes in. Light is a little lighter than my skin tone, but it works fine for now. The medium is way too dark, even when I tan in the summer. It should be gradual, not a dramatic change from light to dark. I hope Smashbox will come out with more shades, it is truly a great product.

Magic in a bottle, NO fly-aways here!
This product adds lustre and shine to my hair without weighing it down (a little goes a long way -- I use a dime-size for my long, fine hair). My hair tends to get drier in the winter and this product adds back the moisture and takes away the frizziness -- It also leaves my hair smelling great! A must-have!

No harsh detergents, leaves my hair soft and shiny!
I have been trying to find a great shampoo that is gentle enough for daily use (stinky "gym hair"). I've tried the shampoo and conditioner for two-weeks, and it hasn't left my hair feeling dry, but perfectly moisturized:) I love the minty, soothing smell too!

Easy to apply, sharper/cleaner lines
One of my favorites from MAC. Using this with the MAC eyeliner brush, it was easier for me to create a clean cat-eye look in less time. The eyeliner is gel-based which glides on easily to make thick or thin lines and end it with a clean point. Once it sets in, it stays put -- even on humid days, but easily comes off with make-up remover.

It really works!
I get large pimples frequently, but I am also concerned about wrinkles which is why I stay clear of acne treatments that contain benzoyl peroxide. This product uses no chemicals, it fights pimples with heat. My pimple clears two days top with no drying and peeling of the skin. It works so well, my boyfriend even uses it. Definitely worth the money. *I have read some of the other reviews -- people who get burned are applying too much pressure to skin or using it on the same spot more than 2x's a day. The instructions enclosed mentions that you don't need to apply pressure and that this product should not be used in combination with other acne-fighting products.
