    L'Oreal Paris Panoramic Curl Mascara

    One of my favorites! (waterproof)

    FYI-- I have the waterproof version of this, but TB doesn't have that so I'm doing a review on the original. And...I love it! Finally a product that actually lives up to its claims. This mascara stays on my lashes all day without smudging or flaking. It also holds curl beautifully, that's a big deal because my lashes are quite straight. Clumping is minimal, which I also appreciate. The brush is unique too; it's curved but not so much so that it's hard to work with. The only thing I would change about this mascara is if it gave me just a little more volume. Other than that, it's the closest to perfect that I've tried! If you have trouble keeping your lashes curled, try this!

    OPI Nail Lacquer

    Beautiful colors, practical brush

    I love opi! When they come out with new collections, I get so excited. The color selection is insane, and the brand always seems to be up to date with current trends. I also love the brush in each polish. It's large and wide compared to other brands I've used, which helps me apply a more even coat. A little pricey but worth it!

  • the Balm shadyLady Powder Shadow

    the Balm shadyLady Powder Shadow

    The best eyeshadow I've ever used (no kidding)

    I have a palette of these eye shadows and they are amazing! They offer lots of color payoff, apply incredibly smoothly and last all day (over a primer of course!) I know MAC probably has the reputation of making the best shadows out there, but in my opinion, the Balm shadows are even better. The price may be a little high for some, but I think it's worth it, because they are such good quality and I feel like I'm getting my money's worth.

  • Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser for Face and Eyes
    9.0

    Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser for Face and Eyes

    A cleanser that I believe will actually work for multiple skin types!

    This cleanser always leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean without drying it out. Sometimes my face can feel a little tight, but never flaky. I remove my makeup before washing my face, and after I rinse the purity cleanser off, my skin is completely clean and free of makeup and grime. So it cleanses thoroughly, but doesn't strip the skin. I do suffer from acne, and I don't feel this has actually improved my skin, but it doesn't irritate it either, which is a big deal for me. Side note: it's creamy and doesn't lather, which some people may not like. The price may be a little steep for some too.

  • Almay Moisturizing Liquid Makeup Remover

    This remover takes my eye makeup off with minimal rubbing and leaves my eyelids feeling very soft and smooth, unlike when I use "oil-free" products, when my skin is left red and rough! I would compare it to Clinique's eye makeup remover, but the plus side is this is much less expensive! I would definitely recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin.

  • Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips
    7.0

    Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips

    Does the job, but price is a little high!

    This makeup remover is oil free, but still needs to be shaken up. It seems a little greasy, and leaves my eyelids feeling soft instead of like sandpaper (big plus!). Long-wearing eyeshadow and mascara take a little extra effort (rubbing) getting off, but I didn't feel any irritation. The downside of this product for me is the price. After using this I switched to the moisturizing eye makeup remover from Almay, which works just as well for a much better price.

  • Sebastian Whipped Creme
    7.0

    Sebastian Whipped Creme

    Contributes to the health of my hair but curls?....

    This creme dispenses like whipped cream which is very fun. It doesn't make my hair crunchy or greasy, but lightly moisturizes so the hair isn't left frizzy or unmanageable either. (I do spray in some leave-in first for a little extra moisture) I don't feel like it makes my hair curlier, but I usually go casual and wavy and this creme helps with that because the waves are very soft and subtle. If you want something for beachy waves, or that "just rolled outta bed" look, this will probably be a good product for you.

    Will probably work wonders for those with shorter hair :)

    My hair is long and wavy so I like to leave it in it's natural state. I usually use moisturizing creams and serums to accomplish that. This is a texturizing paste that is supposed to create definition and hold style--which I don't need. After using it (too much I think!) I went to get my hair cut and my stylist told me my hair felt greasy and full of gunk. I'm almost certain it was because of this. That's not to say it's a bad product; it just wasn't for me. For someone with shorter hair, who uses small amounts of styling product, this stuff will probably work very well.

  • TRESemme Smooth & Silky Conditioner

    This conditioner makes my hair soft and silky, without weighing it down, or leaving behind a greasy residue. Whenever I use it I notice how shiny and manageable my hair is. It just looks more healthy in general. If you have damaged or frizzy hair, try this!

  • L'Oreal Paris Vive Pro Nutri Gloss Conditioner

    This conditioner has a strange smell, but that's my only problem with it. It moisturizes my hair without weighing it down, and leaves it soft and manageable. Also, what I really like is that my hair is always really shiny when I use this conditioner. Good buy.
