  • Clinique Superbalanced Makeup

    Alright on my search for a great liquid foundation I decided to try this. My biggest complain with this product was that no shade matched me well. The nude beige- although it first looked good on me- oxidized into a crazy dark orange color and made me look like an oompa loompa. I tried a shade down and it was too pink. Nothing really matched my light goden skin :/ Second complain is the packaging, the packaging is pretty bad. I really like the glass bottle...but alas no pump :p Thus you have to hold the bottle downward until the foundation finally decides to show itself. I don't find this very sanitary AND it wastes more product than you have to :p Onto the positives, the coverage is a nice medium, it definitely covered most of my hyperpigmentaion. Second the oil control on this stuff is pretty good. It kept me from getting oily as quick (although it did eventually happen) it was good oil control than other foundations have provided. If you find a color match id definitely recommend it though!

  • Jane Iredale Amazing Base SPF 20

    I have never heard of Jane Iredale until a few months ago. I was lucky to be invited to a Allure Event regarding Jane Iredale makeup line and be able to try their products. Ever since that event I made the change to the Amazing Base and my skin has looked so much better. I have tried other department store brands- Clinque mineral makeup (too cakey), MAC (also cakey and could never get the right color), Laura Mercier (Color could never match) and Bare Minerals which I went through the whole container to get some sort of coverage. With the Jane Iredale my shade- light beige blends so well with my skin. The powder does not go into my (light)wrinkles. And it also does not look like I have any makeup on. Very fresh face. I have had fewer breakouts and my skin is clearing up from some acne pre-amazing base. I was also shown techniques to use this one container as my powder and concealer ! A 3 in 1! I use it as my powder for my entire face, under my eyes to cover my dark circles and any blemishes I would like to hide. I feel that the price point is good for the value and quality and one container can last for about 7 weeks and you do not need to buy another other product. I have also slept in my makeup a few times and my skin does not break out at all- very natural. Thanks Jane Iredale and the team for having these amazing events. I am hooked on your products and have gotten a few friends to make the switch!

  • ApHogee Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor

    I found this product on YouTube being used by a lot of girls who also have natural hair. My hair is very thick and an inch past shoulder length. I usually wear my hair blow dried and flat ironed straight. Therefore I felt my hair losing its natural curl on the ends after washing, possibly being heat damaged. Also since the winter months it has been shedding and splitting really bad. So i decided to try my first protein treatment and wanted to start off slow. I was really nervous! I read reviews that I should wash and condition as normal and then place this 2 minute re constructor in. So I followed this routine: 1.Biosilk Silk Therapy Shampooed 2.Detangled with Biosilk Silk Therapy Conditioner added with Mane and Tail Conditioner 3.Washed out 4.Sections hair in 4 sections and Used Aphrogee 2 minute Keratin Treatment Packets (i used both as i have a lot of hair) 5.Put shower cap on and sat for 5-7 minutes. (it took like 10 minutes to put in my hair) 6.Washed out 7. Then used Olive Oil deep Conditioning Packet (30 minutes with shower cap)*this is a first time product I used.... 8. Washed out, blow dried and straightened as usual using my EVO and Coconut oil. Then flat ironed I seen too many reviews that this would leave your hair feeling dry and stiff. Being as though my hair is natural, it would be impossible for me to detangle after that treatment without breaking off my hair. So i decided to deep condition after. Which is the best idea i think!! Results: I'm NOT super ecstatic about it?! My hair visibly looked shiny and strong after straighten. I DID see an immediate difference in my curl pattern after washing it (before blow drying). My ends had more curl definition. So this will be great in the summer when I want to wear my natural texture. Im guessing this brings back the protein and your redefines your natural texture. I didnt see anymore or less hair shedding from blow drying. Hopefully I will see less split ends and less shedding since using it. Not sure how often I will try this maybe once a month or every 2 weeks. My normal routine takes forever so this already adds an extra 20 minutes> making this at least 3 hours of hair time UGH LOL...keep you posted!

  • It Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Powder Brush

    This is a really nice, high quality brush. It has a very full and soft brush head. Perfect size for picking up enough powder to do my entire face with one swipe. I haven't experienced any shedding with this brush and no loose hairs which end up stuck to my face. I have washed it several times, and the brush looks and feels just like new. Again, no shedding or splaying. For reference, I also own some MAC, KevynA, PaulaD, LauraM and several Shu (including the 18R Powder). I prefer this brush for finishing powder over the 18R, and this brush cost less.

  • Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Soft Shimmer Bronzer

    Just imagine being able to look naturally sun kissed every day! In the spring/summer this product will give such a pretty glow and fall/winter such a natural healthy glow that makes you feel cheerful everytime you look in the mirror! It lasts such a long time too. Getting ready to purchase a new one now! (It lasted for a year used almost every day!)

  • Amazing Cosmetics Velvet Mineral Powder

    I love this powder foundation! It's goes on easily and smoothly and it's a cinch to apply. I have very fair skin and found that the Ultra Light was the perfect color for me. It lets my skin show through and evens out my skintone. Lasts all day with little touchups. The concealer is phenomenal and together with the powder foundation makes your skin look flawless without either a shiny appearance or chalky appearance. You can even control the amount of coverage you want from very natural to a more dramatic polished look. I have received so many compliments about my skin since I've been using this powder. I previously was using Chanel's powder foundation with success but wanted something different. This is even better than my Chanel powder foundation and even more natural looking. It goes on with a brush (sold separately but very good to use with this powder) so there are no sponges to keep clean. The container is small, perfect for stashing in your purse or makeup bag - perfect for traveling too. Be careful when you open it the first time or the powder will spill out when you remove the paper cover. Highly recommend!

  • Infiniti by Conair Professional Nano Tourmaline Ceramic 1 1/4

    I've been looking around for a good tourmaline ceramic curling iron and went with this one for now because of the low price. I do like it and as far as I can tell it does not seem to damage my hair. Maybe in the future I'll go with a pricier one but for now this one seems to do just fine. Pros: - heats up fast and has different heat settings - the protective cover comes in handy - can't beat the price - tourmaline ceramic - better than just ceramic or worse, bare metal - looks nice - swivel cord - auto shut off Cons: - the on/off switch is in a bad spot on the handle.. I am constantly shutting off the iron by accident - the cool tip is not long enough to hold onto, making it easy to burn your fingers - I honestly have not had this iron more than a week so I can't say there aren't more cons but I'll update this if I do find any

  • Garnier Fructis Fortifying Deep Conditioner

    Would I re-purchase? YES! I could not get on here fast enough to write this review! I had a long stressful week and my hair was very neglected with quick shampooing and no conditioning. This weekend I skipped an extra day of showering, went through lots of nasty grime while cleaning and it was up in a ponytail and headband all day sat and fri. I needed some serious help for my poor hair! It is very fine and I need a haircut soon for my dead ends. I had tried this once before with a friend at a DIY spa day, but I was convinced the good results came with the blowdrying we did after. NAY! One thing I adore about this, is that you soak it from ROOT to tip! Not just the ends! Often I worry about the top of my head because I want it to get treatment but don't want to look like an oil slick (my hair is already quite oily!) So I hopped in the shower and after shampooing (redken all soft) I sat down, applied special soap to my acneic back (PanOxyl), SOAKED My hair from root to tip and put it in a clip. I let it sit throughout shaving both my legs and underarms and a bit after. So five ish minutes? When I washed this out, it made my hair SO Soft I was certain that there was still conditioner in my hair after continual rinses! In addition this smells GLORIOUS! Often I just open it to smell it! Which brings us to the packaging! The only reason I rated it a 4 was because I know alot of people don't find it sanitary to dip your fingers in there. I however prefer that over a pump because I feel I can REALLY get everything out of there verses a pump which can hide and steal some (I like to get my money's worth!) My hair is RIDICULOUSLY soft, shiny and very manageable this morning! It's SO exciting!!!!!! I even have body and a bit of volume back! I can't remember the price, but I remember buying it at target for probably $5-7 NOT bad at all, the jar thing is HUGE! I'm not sure how often to use this, I didn't see it on the jar but I'm planning on about 1-2 times a week. I hope this helped some, I REALLY love this and although I haven't tried many others I'm happy to find a potential HG early on!
