    Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow!

    Like the texture, color too orange.

    I am fair-skinned with neutral to pink undertones and I got the I'm plush and precious color. It is too orange for me, for sure, but I'm hoping it will work a bit better in the summer. I also think I'm just a powder foundation girl with my combination-to-oily skin. However, what I did like is that the foundation is very light and feels nice on the skin. It's pretty sheer, definitely not a full coverage foundation, and I've only used it with primer, so it definitely evens out my skin tone beautifully (if only the oranginess was a litte more convincing on me). It's pretty expensive but the full size is quite large. I gave it a 7, but I believe someone with drier, warmer-toned skin would absolutely love it. I am curious to try it again with a lighter shade. (Sidenote: the shade finder on Benefit's website is not very helpful.)

    Benefit boo boo zap!

    Review subject

    I like this product. It isn't a miracle product by any means, but it works pretty well, much better than other spot treatments I've tried! It is the consistency of water and can pour out of a hole under the cap. I've found that the best way to apply it is to put it up to a spot on your face and tilt your had back so the product directly hits the problem area, then you can rub it in with your fingers if you like. I've used it overnight to dry out an area where I feel an impending pimple coming on, and it seems to keep that from happening. I personally have yet to find a product that literally gets rid of a pimple I already have, so I believe the trick is to be proactive and anticipate when one is coming so you can take care of it then. This product is good for that. Note that the packaging no longer looks like the picture here. The tube now is still cute though. I don't believe that the amount it is better than other products I've tried justifies its price, but it was still worth it for me. I still haven't found a miracle product, but this one is good.

  • Almay Wake Up Eyeliner + Highlighter

    I own the brown one with the light pink highlighter. I have blue/green eyes and it is a great color. It is definitely a deep brown, but does not create a harsh line like liquid liner can. It's an automatic pencil, so there's no sharpening required! It's super easy to bring on trips since it's a 2-in-1 eyeliner and highlighter. I use the highlighter on my brow bone under my eyebrow and in the corners of my eyes to open them up. It works well, but it's definitely a little glittery. It's not just a luminous glaze type of thing. I also am fair-skinned, so the light pink highlighter shows up nicely on my skin tone. I suspect it would just show up sparkly on tanner skin tones. I also like Almay's products because they're designed for sensitive skin, so they don't irritate my skin. Overall, definitely a product I'd buy again. I only gave it 9 stars because it's just not the #1 product I've ever used. But fantastic for the price!

  • PHYTO Phytodefrisant Botanical Hair Relaxing Balm

    When I got this product as a sample, I was convinced it was useless for me. I have fine hair which isn't particularly prone to frizz. So I was all, "What do I need a hair relaxant for?" Based on past reviews of other people with fine hair, I decided to give it a try. And WOW! I did not realize my hair could be SO SOFT!!! I was amazed! I mean, I use conditioner and leave in conditioner most days and I have never had such soft hair before! It was really cool! I would say it also kept my hair from being frizzy pretty well. Like I said, frizz has never been a primary concern, but it definitely kept my hair from getting static-y in dry Colorado. It says on the package to use on towel-dried hair, and that's exactly what I did! I can see this product making your hair greasy if it's like mine and you use it on dry hair. So be aware of that. I didn't give it 10 stars because I don't see the product as being a "life-saver" by any means, more of just a luxury. It's also pretty expensive, but since you don't use much at a time, it lasts a while. :) Hope this helps!

  • Remington Pearl Ceramic 2 Wide Straightener

    Remington Pearl Ceramic 2 Wide Straightener

    Style Professional 1¾” Complete Protection Ceramic Flat Iron

    I can't find the place to put this review... but I am a huge believer in Remington Irons! Here's the review I left on the Remington website about the Remington Style Professional 1¾” Complete Protection Ceramic Flat Iron: I've used bad straighteners! They don't clamp straight together, if you miss the plates your hair gets caught in the joint, it's overall not smooth. THIS straightener though... I am SUPER impressed. My mom used the Remington "Style 1" Flat Iron with Extra Long Plates" and I looooved using it. I had some other dinky straightener and hers made my hair so smooth! I checked out the brand and since my hair is longer I wanted a wider Remington iron. I LOVE this one. I have thin hair so it's easy to turn down the heat so it still straightens with minimal damage. It doesn't pull my hair to use, it works fast, and it heats up really quickly. The size of the plates are perfect, wide enough to straighten big areas of hair but not bulky. The whole thing is very streamlined with rounded edges and doesn't get in the way. It packs well too! The ONE issue I wish I could improve is that the handle gets hot closer to the irons. Even when you hold it normally. But I can live with a little heat... it's not like it'll burn me. So yeah... I'd DEFINITELY recommend this product. I wasn't going to leave a review, but I saw that this was being poorly represented. This is a great product!

    Ulta Eye Shadow

    Wait... is it on?

    To be fair, I bought this in a light pink color only. I use a brush to apply it and the coverage is just really light. It works really when when I do my "natural look" makeup, but you probably couldn't much tell the difference if I only wore it on one eye. haha. Okay maybe a little. Anyway, I'd recommend this if you like a sheer tint of color, and maybe the richer colors apply better. I wasn't amazed. It comes in a bunch of colors though and these go on sale all the time. so they have SELECTION and you can get them for CHEAP :)

    Bath & Body Works Liplicious Lip Gloss

    Hair... stuck on my lips ... again!

    Okay, this stuff smells super good! So good that I worry that I'll just eat it someday. I have it in a peach scent. It looks great on and makes the lips really shiny and everything but it is just ... so... STICKY! You have to be careful not to put too much on, a little goes a long way. And obviously putting too much on will exacerbate the stickiness issue, but yeah, this just drove me nuts. I use it when going out and such but I couldn't use it every day.

  • Bath & Body Works Triple Moisture Body Cream

    Honestly, I LOVE having a variety of scents of this stuff to choose from in the morning. In a way, I almost wish it wouldn't last as long so I'd have an excuse to buy more every time they had the buy 3, get 3 free sale! haha. It's a great moisturizer for my dry skin - I apply it every day. It keeps my skin from getting dry all day and it's just all around really good. Plus, the scents are amazing! There are so many good ones and they come out with more every year! My personal favorite is Coconut Lime Breeze (was Coconut Lime Verbena). It's smells fresh and nice without being too potent. I also love Forever Sunshine! This one is a really fresh floral citrus scent and is also light enough that it doesn't overpower a room. I wish I could own all the scents!! Anyway, definitely a favorite!

  • Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa Shea Cashmere Hand Cream

    This makes my hands SO soft! The scent is moderately strong, someone next to you could definitely smell it if you started putting it on, but it's not overbearing. I've bought 3 of these -> they're just so good! I have dry skin and love a good hand cream. It survives a hand washing pretty well to keep your hands feeling soft even afterwards. Awesome.

  • Suave Professionals Humectant Conditioner

    Suave Professionals Humectant Conditioner

    $3? Please, use conditioner.

    My mom buys this conditioner because it's such a great product for the price. She doesn't like to splurge on shampoo/conditioner. So I used it for a whole summer when I was home in a very dry climate and this worked great! Helped fight off the static, no frizzy hair, etc. etc. I have fine hair and this worked really well for me. Not too heavy, not too light. Just an overall great product, plus you can't beat the price! So when my hippie roommate decided to go in for a salon haircut and the hairdresser told her she needed to start using conditioner on her butt-length hair, I told her to use this! It wasn't as hard to convince her with a $3 price. Her hair looks way better now.... of course. The shampoo works great with this, too. I love the way this line smells, it's not too strong, just a light coconut scent that doesn't get weird throughout the day. Anyway, I'd buy this again and again if I didn't enjoy trying new products so much! A real winner!
