    Revlon Lash Fantasy Total Definition Mascara

    great for those who want a mascara and primer

    I personally have always loved this mascara (and I have tried everything.) I like the fact that it comes with aprimer and for day time wear I go without the primer and for evening looks I add it back in. It creates dark,thick lifted lashes and I get a ton of compliments when I wear it. I will admit the primer is an extra step but for me it's worth it. This can get slightly flakey but I noticed the problem once the mascara got old and frankly,any aged mascara is prone to flakes. I think it's worth a try!

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

    I have tried a lot of eye primers and none of them come close to Urban Decay's product. It goes on smooth and is easy to blend and really helps your eye make-up stay put. I work 12 hour shifts and at the end of the day my shadow and liner is still intact if I use this product....if I don't there is always creasing. It can also be worn on it's own without shadow for a very subtle look on fair to medium skin tones. The only reason tha it doesn't get a "10" is because the bottle shape curves and the applicator is not able to get out that "last little bit." I hate wasted product due to bad package design.....personal peeve!

    CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara

    In this case you get what you pay for...

    I wasn't impressed with this mascara at all. It darkened and lengthened my lashes but it flaked after a couple hours and smudges much too easily. I wasn't too keen on the brush that comes with this mascara either. A better alternative to this is "Falsies" mascara in the purple tube. I think Maybelline makes it. I would never buy this mascara again.

    Benefit 10

    a great multitasking product

    I love Benefit Hoola so I knew I would like the bronzer in this. The idea of having a bronzer alongside a highlighter is great because not only is it two products in one but you can use one to tone down the other if you go overboard and who HASN'T done that with bronzer?!? For the comment that states this isn't for pale skin, that could be true but I have yet to see a bronzer that DOES work for people with extremely pale skin. It's not a good match but not at the fault of the bronzer....opt for a highlighter/blush combo instead if you are super pale and need a nice glow. I have fair skin (though I do spray tan frequently) and these colors look awesome. The only reason that I am not giving it ten stars is because I am not huge on the box design as I find it difficult to get the last bit out when I am running low. The brush that comes with it is good for a touchup but I prefer a better quality brush for initial application.

  • TIGI Bed Head Moisture Maniac Conditioner

    TIGI Bed Head Moisture Maniac Conditioner

    great for fine hair that needs a heavy conditioner

    I have always loved this conditioner. It has a slight fruity fragrance that might not be for everyone but I like it. I have fine hair but live in a dry climate so it's hard for me to find a conditioner that will provide a lot of moisture but won't weigh down my hair. This helps a ton with tangles too. For people with similar hair needs, I would check this one out.

    Redken Color Extend Conditioner

    don't believe the hype

    This conditioner disappointed. It DID deliver on its promise to preserve color but I found the consistency of the product to be almost slimy feeling and I had to keep rinsing because I got the feeling I was not getting it all out of my hair. I have fine color treated hair but my hair rarely looks flat simply because I have so much of it. This weighed down my hair and I noticed my hair was greasy by early after noon. No thanks!

  • Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray

    How well you like a particular hair spray partially depends on what type of hair you have. I have a ton of hair but it's very fine and this hairspray is THE best for providing long lasting hold. It is not stiff at all and the can always distributes evenly. I will admit it's not the "strongest" hairspray and I have tried others that hold better, this hairspray is perfect for everyday styles. Not the best choice for something that needs a lot of hold such as an updo. I like this one because I am always able to run a brush through my hair afterwards no matter how much I spray on. It's my personal favorite but to each their own.

  • Tweezerman Mini Slant

    Tweezerman Mini Slant

    dynamite comes in small packages

    I love the original size Tweezermans and when my sister "borrowed" them I decided to get this instead. The mini works as well as the full size tweezers and while the cost may deter people, you will never have to replace these as they last forever and can be sharpened. They pull out absolutely everything and can even get those annoying and difficult super-fine hair that grows below the eyebrows. Don't pass on these!

  • NYX Cosmetics Single Eye Shadow

    I am in LOVE with MAC products and tried thse because as my friend says, "They are the poor girl's MAC." I think they are better than that. If it weren't for the packaging, I am willing to bet money that even the biggest MAC junkie could not tell the deifference. Great texture,color variety, and best of all price point. A good option for wanting to try bright ot daring colors but not wanting to drop $16 on a shadow.

    Dior Diorshow Iconic

    "Iconic" is pure glam

    I was hesitant to spend so much on a mascara but this mascara is worth it. I naturally have long thick lashes but I am a natural blonde so my lashes are not very dark and need a little help to really pop out. This mascara lengthens,adds volume and best of all it doesn't flake. I also love Dior mascara applicators and this one as well. The look after applying this is gorgeous but for me it is a total night time look...the mascara is almost TOO good. For a conservative day look, skip this but for night time glam this stuff rocks!
