Here are all my reviews:
  • Avon Advance Techniques Dry Ends Serum

    I use this all the time (only on the ends) under my usual creams and gels I use in my hair. My hair is quite long and the serum really helps mask split ends and adds shine. "Extra strength" works even better.

    Clean & Clear Oil Free Shine Control Moisturizer

    Didn't work that well for me...

    This moisturizer kept some parts of my face moisturized (I still have some dry patches however) but it definitely didn't make my skin "shine free." My face was actually shinier when I applied it before foundation so now I skip it in the morning. Plus I still break out so it didn't help me in that area either.

    Proactiv Repairing Treatment

    Not for sensitive skin

    ProActiv's claim that it's products are gentle is simply not true. I have sensitive skin and when I used the system I had to stop after a few weeks because it wasn't curing my breakouts, and my skin was very dry and peeling (even though I was using their moisturizer). I think ProActiv probably only works for people with very oily acne-prone skin, and people with more sensitive skin should stay away.

  • John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Shine Shock, Leave On Perfecting Glosser

    This is probably my favorite brilliant brunette product. My hair is quite long, and the gloss moisturizes and hides my split ends well. I only used it on the ends because it can look a little greasy near the roots.

  • John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Shine Release Daily Shampoo with Light Enhancers

    The brilliant brunette products work alright for me, but it does not contribute to the life of my color. It's moisturizing though, which is a plus. Would probably work best for natural brunettes.

  • TRESemme Color Thrive Brunette Conditioner

    I can really see a difference in how long my color lasts and how shiny it is when I use this "color thrive" system. Reasonably priced and worth the money!

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara Custom Curved Brush

    I really like this mascara. The brush is very soft, and the mascara is silky. Doesn't leave clumps (unless the bottle is old) and gives lots of volume.

  • Max Factor 2000 Calorie Curved Brush Mascara

    This mascara worked very well for about the first month that I used it (which is good for me). There aren't much clumps, and it gives a lot of volume and length. After awhile though, it gets clumpy.

  • Maybelline New York Pure Makeup

    This foundation boasts that it's made with 50% water and that is not surprising considering the bad coverage it gives. I have oily/acne prone skin and it did not cover my blemishes well. It was also very shiny.

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    BareMinerals is probably the best mineral makeup I've tried, but I don't think it's worth the price so I stopped using it. It gives pretty good coverage, and looks almost flawless when first applied, but by the middle of the day, it can get really shiny. I would only recommend this for people with dry/sensitive skin.
