    Josie Maran Argan Color Sticks

    A bit dry considering it's made with Argan oil

    I love cream blushes because they are easy to blend and they tend to last longer throughout the day. However this cream color stick is not easy to blend and its hard to put on. It felt like it was really dry considering it's made out of Argan oil. The color tone I have is petal pink and it does give a nice pinky glow, I just wish it were easier to blend.

  • Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil

    I've never used an oil on my face before using this product so I was a little weary about trying this. I bought this to use during winter since my skin gets dryer. I felt like it was just an okay product... I am also acne prone and while this didn't make me breakout it made my face feel a bit oily and greasy. I would only use a tiny bit too so it wasn't that I was using too much.. I think this product works best more on the body and hair than the face. It just made me look too shiny.

  • Smashbox Bionic Mascara

    Smashbox Bionic Mascara

    Volumizes but clumps

    I actually really do like the way this mascara thickens my lashes. I have pretty short and thin lashes (Asian genes) so I prefer mascaras that actually do help to build lash volume. When I use this mascara it makes my lashes appear fuller, longer and slightly curled. However, this mascara will clump like crazy! I would recommend taking off a bit of the excess before applying it. Also, it did give me raccoon eyes on those warmer humid days which was not very pleasant :(

  • Colgate Optic White Toothpaste

    I used this toothpaste for a month twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening. And it did actually work while I was using it, which surprised me! It surely doesn't beat professional whitening and you need to use it continuously for it to keep your teeth white, but for a fraction of the price compared to professional whitening, this is probably your best alternative solution to getting whiter teeth.

  • Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner

    I really love this conditioner. After only using it once I felt a dramatic change in how much smoother and shinier my hair felt and looked. The smell is really nice too. I leave the conditioner on for closer to 5 mins and then rinse. I usually have problems with build up and having my hair on the dry and dull side but this conditioner makes my hair feel smooth throughout the day. I would recommend this as a daily conditioner for those who wash their hair daily.

    Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo

    Not great when used by itself

    This shampoo only works well when used with the conditioner. It has a really nice smell to it, not too strong though. After rinsing the shampoo out my hair felt really coarse and not smooth at all. Only when I used the conditioner did I really feel a big difference in the texture of my hair.

    mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder

    Great Powder for Oily/Combination Skin

    This product really does absorb oil and keeps your face shine free for at least 5 hours. Its very sheer and almost translucent. The quality is great and the price is great also! I would use this as more of a set powder for your foundation instead of an actual powder foundation because you wont get much coverage using this alone.

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

    I actually really like this mascara! My lashes are really thin and tend to clump easily, but for me, the wand helped to define my lashes and build the volume. Definetly use an eyelash curler with this, it will really help to amp up the volume.

  • Laura Geller Blush-N-Brighten Compact

    Laura Geller Blush-N-Brighten Compact

    Honey Dipped is Gorgeous!

    I looooove this! The only reason why I gave it 9 instead of 10 stars is because it doesnt last very long throughout the day =( Its highly pigmented, so you dont want to overdo it. It looks great as an all over bronzer or to contour. When you use it as a blush, it has a sort of duochrome effect where it shows up a little more golden bronze with a peachy hue. Same as the eyes, if you use it on your eyes, it makes your crease look more defined and your lid more shimmery. Kinda strange, but amazing all the same.

  • Redken Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist

    It makes your hair look shiny and healthy! Plus it tames flyaways! I use it on dry hair in the morning, just spraying it lightly all over and then brushing it out to get an even coat. If I have any strays or flyaways, Ill spray it in my palm and then smooth it over my head. It makes me look polished and ready! If you use too much of this though, you will get that gross oily feeling...
