  • L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Explosion Carbon Black Mascara

    I attest to the many previous reviewers difficulty with the applicator. The sphere almost always has too much mascara on the bristles, so I would need to blot the excess before application. The first few times I did not wipe away the excess and I would end up having to try to separate my clumped lashes with my eyebrow grooming tool. The formula also dries really fast so that would make separating clumped lashes more difficult. I got the hang of it after several uses, but for me, I want a better formula and applicator for my money. The one plus is that if you do blot the excess mascara from the applicator, and you get the application process down, you have a really nice 'day' look, with separated lashes.

    Mineral Essence ME Sheer Lip Colour

    Nice texture, but heavy for a sheer

    I won this lipstick in a prize from this site (thanks totalbeauty) and I got the color Rum Raisin in my bag. It's a nude with a peachy undertone, but it comes on a bit tawny to me, and the color was semi sheer but the texture was a light creamy balm and it glided on super easy.

  • Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Moisture Plump Lip Balm

    I have this product in sweet plum and I would swear I was using Clinique's almost lipstick in black honey! The color is so sheer and the texture is nice and balmy - perfect for day!

  • Clairol Nice 'n Easy Perfect 10

    Clairol Nice 'n Easy Perfect 10

    Perfect 10 is right!

    I'm disappointed to see the bad reviews for this product. The first reviewer said she used the dark brown and it came out black - well, that's how the dark brown looks in any color line right after you color. After your first wash though, the color goes right to it's rich luscious dark chocolate shade and it stays there for good. The fading is absolutely minimal and I don't think there is a better drugstore home color for brown hair. This color does have a glossy healthy look after you use the conditioner, and the scent is actually nice! No joke! Plus, it works in 10 minutes - or 15 minutes if you have gray hair like myself. That is just unheard of and makes this home color the best choice, and definitely worth every cent.

  • Frederic Fekkai Technician Color Care Conditioner

    I can't speak highly of the shampoo unfortunately, but the conditioner is outstanding. I love the smell, and the silky feel my hair has after I use this conditioner. I wish the price wasn't so high, but you gotta take the good with the bad sometimes. I have coarse hair with dry ends and this helps, although it's no miracle.

  • L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray

    This is a miracle spray, that holds your style, but allows you to move it and play with it, and it will stay however you leave it - all while leaving a satin finish on your hair.

  • Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray

    I will say that I'm partial to l'oreal's elnett, and this is in that price range if not more, so that is where I'm being biased. This did give the hair good hold but the staying power wasn't there. I also have a drugstore brand that is 2nd to my l'oreal and it's $3, so this is a good product, but I've found an equal for less.

  • Redken Spray Starch 15 Heat Memory Styler

    This is -hands down- the best thermal spray out there. I mist it throughout my hair when it's damp and a little more before I flat iron, and my hair looks like a professional did it. The price is worth it for an important event, if not a must have for everyday. The formula literally acts like a starch and when you add heat to it, it's gonna stay and stay for a while. Bravo!

  • Alberto VO5 Extreme Style Heat Defense Conditioning Spray

    This is the best drugstore heat protectant I have found! I personally adore Redken spray starch, but this is pretty much the same product but it doesn't have the setting properties that Redken's does. The smell is nice and the spray is not too heavy, plus it's easy on the wallet!

  • Maybelline New York Expert Wear Blush

    These shades are very universally flattering so they get a big plus for that. The texture is soft, but the pigment isn't that great, and the blush travels a bit if you don't set it. I think it's a good product with room for improvement, but one of the best drugstore blushes I've found as to date.
