    Revlon ColorSilk

    Great for the price.

    I use a lot of at-home hair color and this is usually my go-to brand. As inexpensive as it is, I can afford to color my hair as often as I want, or if it turns out to be a color I don't like, I didn't blow a lot of money getting it done and it's not a big deal to get another box and fix it. The formula on this is really conditioning and always leaves my hair feeling like it's in better condition than it was before I colored. My only complaint about this is that it fades out way sooner than I'd like for it to. I almost always go for the darkest brown color (without being black) and after a little over a month it's faded back to dark blonde/light brown.

  • Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel
    8.0

    Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel

    I really liked this

    I have the yellow one (I don't remember what it's called but Avon doesn't put out a lot of yellow) and I love it. It only took me 2 coats for it to be completely opaque and that's rare for a yellow polish. I didn't dry quite as fast as the speed dry nail enamel, but it still dried faster than I expected it to. It lasted about 3-4 days before it started barely chipping, and it was about a week before the chips were actually noticeable. That didn't really bother me because I never wear the same color for more than a week anyway, but it might bother some people. I think this was really great for the price.

  • NeXXus Pro·Mend Split End Treatment Daily Shampoo

    I have pretty damaged hair from daily blow drying and straightening, and lots of at-home hair color. When I saw this product claiming to help mend and bind back together split ends I had to try it. After using it for a few weeks, I haven't noticed a difference at all in my split ends, even followed with the Pro Mend Conditioner and the treatment. It also gave my hair this weird texture that wasn't dry, but it wasn't soft either and made it hard to style. I think for the price this was definitely a waste of my money, and now I have a half-full bottle of this stuff that's just going to go to waste.

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Naturale Mascara Mineral-Enriched Mascara

    I normally wouldn't have bought this, but I was killing time at the Dollar Tree in the makeup isle (I couldn't figure out why anyone would want to buy makeup at the Dollar Tree, something must be wrong with it right?) and I saw this and figured I'd try it. This mascara is actually pretty awesome. I was very pleasantly surprised. It applied very evenly with absolutely no clumps. It looked very natural, like my eyelashes only better. I also noticed a definite improvement in length. My only issue with this is that after about 4-5 hours of wear, it starts to flake and fall onto my face. So the wear time on this is not great.

  • Maybelline New York Fit Me! Foundation

    This is possibly the worst foundation I've ever tried. The formula on this is horrible. I tried it because it claimed to be a very natural looking foundation, but once I put it on it looked like I had spread slightly tinted grease on my face. I definitely wouldn't recommend this..

  • Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse

    This is probably my favorite drugstore foundation. While like some of the other reviews say, it does tend to come off after about 5-6 hours on its own, however if you use a good primer that time drastically increases. I've fallen asleep with this on (unintentionally) and woke up with my makeup still looking ok enough to go out in public. They don't have a huge range of colors compared to some other brands, but they do have a nice selection. I've personally found my perfect color in Porcelain Ivory (the lightest shade). It matches my skin so well that you can't even tell I'm wearing it sometimes. It also lives up to the Matte claim. I have combination skin that worsens depending on the humidity and I almost never have a problem with going shiny.

  • TRESemme Big Boost Root Lift Spray

    I have really straight flat hair and this helps a lot. It gives my hair a lot of boost and volume up top without feeling like I have any product in my hair. I'm kind of sad about it though because my bottles almost empty and I haven't seen it in stores for a while... I really hope they aren't going to discontinue it...

  • Tresemm√© Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray

    I absolutely love this stuff. I just found out about it a couple of months ago and I've already been through about 4 bottles. I spray a ton of it all over my hair when I get out of the shower before I comb my hair because it works great as a detangler as well. Then after I dry my hair I spray a tiny bit more before I straighten it and I can really tell that it's making a difference. I blow dry and straighten my hair every single day and it's super damaged. Since I've started using this my hair has looked and felt so much better and I haven't noticed any new damage. This is probably my favorite hair product ever. I would recommend it to anyone.

  • Avon Personal Match Smooth Mineral Blush

    This blush is great. I have it in hearty peach and I love it. (BONUS: this color can even work as a bronzer for lighter skin tones) This blush blends really well and it lasts for a really long time. I've had it for a while and I've barely even made a dent in it. It's super-pigmented so you only need a tiny bit. I usually just flip it upside down for a second and use the tiny bit that manages to stick to the cap when I take it off. Even then I swirl my brush around in the cap to tone it down a little bit so I'm not just picking up a big glob of it. This blush works really well and it's a great deal for the price.

  • Avon Slick Tint For Lips
    9.0

    Avon Slick Tint For Lips

    depends on the color

    I have two of these, one's like a nude color, and the other's a dark red. I really love the nude color, it makes my lips soft and it's got just the right amount of color if you're going for a natural look but you still want to wear a lipstick. On the other hand, I really hate the dark red one. There's no tint to it. It's just full-on dark red lipstick. And the consistency is terrible. It's almost like it's too moist. It's kind of goopy once you get it on, and even after blotting and wearing lipliner, it still bleeds and feathers out of your lip line. It's almost to the point of being completely unwearable. So my rating is for the natural looking colors, they're great so I'm giving them a 9. The dark ones get zero stars because they're crap.
