    Benefit Girl Meets Pearl

    A pleasant surprise!

    I spotted this product in my sister's makeup stash and my curiosity got the best of me. I tried a tiny bit over my cheekbones and wow I was blown away. Definitely not your average teeny bopper product, as long as you use just a little bit of it and as a highlight over cheekbones and note, and basically a light trace over facial bones. It adds a hint of shimmer that gives your face a nice, glowing refreshed and youthful look. It's not super subtle, so again, you only need to use a tiny bit. Even my husband complemented me on how good it looked. My sister noticed how much I liked it so she got me one of my own. Yay! This would be a great product to wear out when going for a special night out, maybe a touch over your shoulders too if you're going to wear sleeveless. A very fun product.

  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

    I was recommended the Tarte brand as containing healthy ingredients and not being tested on animals/not containing animal by-products. So when I ran out of my two-year-old blush (finally), I decided to give this a shot. It was priced very reasonably. When I tried it, the first thing I noticed was that I only need to apply a fraction of the amount I used to saturate in my brush with my old blush. A little bit really goes a long way. So far so good. When I applied the blush, it went on so smoothly and evenly. And the color was amazingly rich and true. And talk about staying power! I just wish I got a different color, with a little bit of shimmer instead of a flat color. I got mine in "amused" which is a very pinky color. I didn't imagine it would show up on my face as pink as it did in the package. But I love the quality of this product so much that I'm going to return this color and get a different color. Highly recommended!

  • Pureology Colour Stylist Strengthening Control

    I got this spray along with the Pureology Colour Stylist heat spray. I love the heat spray, and this hairspray isn't too shabby either. It's gives my hair a nice flexible hold. If you're looking for something super stiff, this isn't your product. This doesn't leave my hair sticky or crunchy. As far as its affectively on preserving my haircolor, I'd say it's performing pretty well. I've noticed that my color is nice and shiny still. If I were using something else, my color would have been faded and drab looking by now. I still get a little bit of color washing away after each shampoo, but nothing out of the ordinary there. But it's better than before. So I'd say this spray does what it claims.

  • Pureology Colour Stylist Fortifying Heat Spray

    Although a bit on the pricy side, I've come to trust Pureology products for performing well and doing what is claimed. This heat spray is no exception. I don't heat treat my hair with curling/flat iron that often (maybe twice a week), but I blow dry my hair pretty much every day. So I use this product like a leave-in and it makes my hair feel great after both blow drying and after using an iron. I've only been using it for a couple of weeks so it's hard to tell if it's preventing split ends. But I wouldn't doubt if it helps a bit. My hair feels smooth, strong and elastic from root to tip. Without this product, any loose hairs in my brush after styling are so brittle, they snap at the slightest tug. So, so far, so good! Worth the money.

    Obagi ElastiLash Eyelash Solution

    Not worth the money

    I’ve been using this product for a few weeks now, and as much as I want it to work, I don’t think I’m seeing the dramatic results I was looking for. I think it’s helping my existing lashes not fall out as much, but nothing in the way of generating new lashes or anything. After I put it on, it does itch a little bit a few minutes afterwards and it turns a little pink, but nothing major or bothersome. Maybe if I give it another month or so I’ll see some results, but nothing major so far. Also the instructions stress the importance of not accidentally getting the solution on your hands or anywhere else on your face. My friends and I got a good laugh out of this envisioning a streak of fresh new hair in a straight line across my forehead, as a result of me accidentally smearing it there. But at any case, this isn’t worth the money ladies. Stick to your falsies.

  • Benefit Prrrowl

    Benefit Prrrowl

    Really fun for teens, not so much for adults

    This product was worn by a beauty consultant at a Sephora. When I asked the consultant what lip gloss she was wearing, she told me about Benefit Prrrowl. The lip gloss is very eye catching, especially in bright light with the iridescent blue glitter. She said she was wearing the mascara that went along with the lipgloss, but I couldn't tell. The lipgloss definitely seemed more eye catching. I bought this for my best friend's teenage girls. I thought they would kick a kick out of it, and they did! When they wore the mascara, I was able to tell they were wearing it better than the beauty consultant. It has a more subtle iridescence to it, put still pretty cool for a young girl. Unfortunately, I don't think I could get away with wearing something like this at age 35. Priced pretty reasonably too.

    Bed Head Styleshots Epic Volume Conditioner

    Doesn't condition too well, but does volumize

    I started using this conditioner along with its shampoo a few days ago. I'm getting pretty good results so far. I'm used to conditioners that are a bit thicker and potent, so I find that this conditioner doesn't condition an awful lot. However, the combination with its shampoo is giving me noticeable volume. I will try it out fro another couple of weeks and see if I still feel the same way or if I start noticing build up (a common side affect for me with the use of volumizing hair products.) I wish this product contained healthier ingredients and wasn't tested on animals. But aside from these two issues, this product has been working out well so far.

  • Bed Head Styleshots Epic Volume Shampoo

    I'm a skeptic when it comes to "volumizing" hair products. In my experience, they either add so much weight to my hair, where by the end of the day it's nowhere near volumized, or they make my hair so dry and brittle that I end up with a head full of broom bristles by the end of the day. But a friend recommended that I use this product. I've used it three times already, but it's been pretty good so far. My hair is soft and manageable, but not limp. I'll see how I feel about it after a full two weeks of use, but so far so good. And it smells like strawberries which is really fun. The ingredients are not so healthy and I'm pretty sure they test on animals, not good. Other than that, pretty good so far.

  • Redken Nature's Rescue Refreshing Detox Shampoo

    My dad has been using the same shampoo for years - head & shoulders. But he likes routine. Despite his fear of change, I convinced him to try this shampoo. He was skeptical at first, but now he's found a permanent replacement! He said he likes how this shampoo leaves his hair totally clean without any lingering girl perfumes. He also likes the face that he doesn't need to use much of it at all to get a nice full head of lather and that it rinses out super quickly. He was wondering if it would dry out his scalp, especially during the cold winter months, but so far so good. We have a keeper! Coming from my dad, that's quite a compliment.

  • Zensation Anti-Blemish Lotion

    Zensation Anti-Blemish Lotion

    Okay, but not a miracle

    I bought this lotion for my sister who has a bad habit of picking her face every time she notices a hint of a pimple or zit. This OCD behavior of hers leaves her face ravaged with scars and blemishes. Even though I'm tried to convince her to not take her daily frustrations out on her face, she continues to do so. So I figured, well, if she's going to keep doing what's bad for her face, might as well not look like a wreck. (I know, not the best attitude.) A couple of weeks after using this lotion daily, my sister told me that why all of her blemishes haven't disappeared, they are looking a bit more faint. She knows how long it takes for her scars/blemishes to completely heal. She thought the time it took to heal with the help of this location was a little less now, about three days faster. She likes how it leaves her face smooth although she did complain about it stinging a bit at first. But nothing too awful. So we'll see how prolonged use will affect the results. What we both like about this product is that it's made of relatively healthy ingredients and it's not tested on animals.
