This is okay as a blush-type powder, but when applied all over the face, it's just too much. The color is too deep, and completely undermines the bare face look that Bare Minerals is supposed to be about.

One of my favorite things about the bareminerals eyeshadow collection is the vast array of colors. They have a selection that covers the entire color spectrum, with matte as well as sparkly and metallic options. I especially like their metallic ones, which give a beautiful sheen without being too glittery. However, these don't blend particularly well. It is very difficult to get them to blend with other eyeshadows, especially if you try to mix with a different brand. They are also quite messy to apply, and you will have to do some cleanup around your eye area once you finish your makeup.

I'm a longtime MAC user, and this has been my consistent bronzer of choice. The powder is very light, but imparts a good amount of pigment, and blends very well. The colors are natural and give a warming, sun-kissed glow. While they are a little pricey, like all MAC products, you will get a long term of use out of one compact.

I know they're bad for the environment, but I strongly prefer using aerosol can hairsprays than the spray. I did not like the distribution that I got from this spray top-- it was uneven and way too wet. The product was sticky and had a very strong alcohol smell. It really does freeze your hair in place, but that may not be such a good thing. The hold is completely inflexible and a little crunchy to the touch.

I like it
I just purchased this lip gloss, and the main thing that drew me to it was the price. The shade is a nice Tangerine, perfect for spring. I liked that it came in a squeezable tube, and dispensed the right amount of product. The scent is pleasant and a little fruity. I like the shine of the gloss, and it is not too sticky or vinyl-like, which I don't like in lip glosses. I do wish that this lip gloss gave a little more color to the lips. The shade in the tube is beautiful, but I didn't see very much on my lips when I applied it. Still, I would probably buy this again.

After years of searching high and low, doing research and trying many face creams, both inexpensive ad high-end, I have decided to go back to the basics. My skin is fairly sensitive, and tends to dry out on the cheeks and around my mouth. I have been using Pond's for about a week now and so far, I am very happy with the results. it leaves my skin very soft and smooth, and the tone of my skin has evened out quite a bit. I have not experienced any irritation or breakouts since using this product, which is great! I find the scent to be light and refreshing, and the texture of the cream is very rich and smooth. I plan to continue using this and hope to see more good results!

I like the softsoap body washes because they're very high quality and still pretty cheap. They have a nice selection of unique scents(outside of the normal vanillas and florals), and I like feeling as though I get a little luxury in the shower without paying a high price. They leave my skin moisturized and smelling sweet, and a bottle will last a very long time.

This is one of the best eyeshadows I've ever used. I love to experiment with colors and the sheen is just beautiful. The variety of colors is very bright and vibrant, and while they are definitely high shine sparklers, none of them are overwhelming. They are great for day wear or to create a special evening look. LOVE this.

I have heard so much about the innovative Nioxin brand that I was absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to try one of their products. I received a bottle of Nioxin Diamax, which is formulated to strengthen hair and increase its fullness. My hair is prone to dryness and breakage, so I am always on the look out for a product that can help me combat my hair's fragile nature and make it strong. When I opened the bottle of the Diamax, I was immediately aware of the scent. While not unpleasant, this product had a very noticeable smell of alcohol. I turned the bottle over to check the ingredient list, and sure enough, alcohol was the first ingredient to be found. While I was at it, I went over the rest of the ingredients, and I was not terribly impressed with what I found. This product contains more fragrance than it does panthenol, which is a very important hair strengthener. Still, I applied this to my hair, which was clean and dried, running it through my strands. I was surprised to find that the texture of the product was not oily at all, but had more of a water consistency. It wasn't runny, but clearly different than most products that I have used. After application, I found that my hair was a good bit smoother, but the product definitely leaves a sticky feeling to hair. The alcohol smell persisted, but the overall fragrance is not unpleasant...it is fresh and clean smelling. To my amazement, though, my hair did appear quite a bit thicker, as though the strands had been fattened up. My hair is pretty thick to start with, but it was really interesting to see that difference in texture. I definitely saw thicker looking hair from using this product...each hair was considerably fatter. All in all, I would say that this product is great for someone who struggles with thin hair, especially if you have flyaways. From what I understand, it is fairly expensive so I don't know that I would purchase it for myself, but it could be worth it to see that "fattening up" effect for thin hair. Very interesting product.
