  • MAC Lipglass
    10.0

    MAC Lipglass

    Easily the Best Gloss Out There

    After trying Lipglass its hard to give other glosses a chance. They are long-lasting and stay put through eating and drinking. The color options are seemingly endless and the colors themselves are highly pigmented. The coral tints are my favorite as other companies have really dissapointed in their stock of coral colored lip products. Lipglass looks like the perfect gloss on, dewy but not goopy, shiny but not too glittery or greasy. They also smell/taste amazing. The price is reasonable as well compared to other department store counter lip glossess.

  • Tarte Double-Ended Lipgloss
    10.0

    Tarte Double-Ended Lipgloss

    Great Gloss, Great Names

    What first drew me to these glosses is that each end of the gloss is named for one part of of a famous couple throughout history, literature or film. I buckled when I saw "Wesley and Buttercup", the couple from the 90s classic movie, "Princess Bride". I tried it on to find the gloss is a nice texture and the colors are just sheer enough to not feel like you poured honey on your lips. They smell great and can be layered or worn separatly. Its two, quality glosses for the price of one.

  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara

    The brush looks similar to Diorshow but the result is a watered down version. It is incredibly flaky and by the end of the day, black specks dotted my undereye area. And the actual product gives a feathery, weak look to lashes along with not lasting a few hours of wear. The packaging is cute but to be honest that is the only posititve thing I can say about this mascara.

  • Nars Lipstick
    10.0

    Nars Lipstick

    Phenomenal Lipstick

    In true Nars fashion, this line of lip sticks has an unbeliavable array of gorgeous shades that when applied, look exactly like the color does in the tube. The quality is unrivaled, seriously the best lipstick I have ever purchased. This product is highly pigmented and a mere swipe of the lipstick transfers more color than you expect. I bought a special edition red shade that I'm hoping they bring back, it was striking, however the line's selection of beige, taupe and skin shades are really great quality staples to have for everyday. My personal favorites are "Honolulu Honey", "Cruising" and "Fabella" they are all either light pinks or peaches. But the darker hues are really beautiful too, "Afgan Red" is a dark red that looks awesome for more formal occasins. They last throughout the day and didn't dry out my lips like many other long-wear lip treatments. It is really an impressive collection. I suggest trying them on, in-store before purchasing though because the colors are very striking and are not done justise online. The packaging too is very understated and chic. They are rather pricey but I buy dozens of drugstore lipsticks that fail to meet my expectation and end up using it two to three times while I've run out of four Nars lipsticks. They are that good. I strongly suggest at least trying them next time you are Sephora or at a Nars department store counter.

  • Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Combination/Oily Skin

    I have tried drugstore and department store brands that claim to compete with revlon's colorstay but I have yet to find one that comes close. Even Make-Up Forever's HD line couldn't hold a candle to the staying-power, coverage and oil control of Colorstay. I also like their range of shades. I go from dark tan to light beige in a year and its nice to know revlon has a plethora of shades to choose from.

  • Rusk Wired Flexible Styling Creme

    This is one of the greatest Hair products I own, Use it occasionally on towel dried hair to add texture and volume as well as on finished styles to smooth. It has a gel quality to it as well that ensures your look will stay put. I often use it to tame the tiny strands that frame my face. I've been using it for 3 years now and have just started my second bottle. You don't need much of this product which makes the price bearable.

  • Garnier Fructis Style Surf Hair Texture Paste

    This product is a summer staple for me. I apply it to towel-dried hair, from roots to tip, put my hair in one french braid and I let it dry. When it comes out I have frizz-free smooth, wavy strands that look relaxed yet polished. And it lasts for a long time. This is a great product, I strongly reccomend it.

  • John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Conditioner

    I use this conditioner one day every week like a masque just to bring out my hair's highlights. I leave it in for a few minutes and put my hair up in a bun. After rinsing, hair is much smoother and the color is noticably brighter. Adding it to my routine seems to be warding off dullness. I have a friend who uses it on her dark blonde hair and it has really added dimension to her hair as well. This is a great product that comes in a small travel size for those who want to sample it.

    Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Deep Conditioner

    One of the Best Deep Conditioners

    This masque is hydrating, smoothing, smells great and perfect for someone trying to give life back to aging strands. After rinsing you can feel how soft and smooth your hair feels. Its an amazing buy and The best I've tried by far. The smell is very pleasant too.

  • TRESemme Split Remedy Split End Sealing Serum
    1.0

    TRESemme Split Remedy Split End Sealing Serum

    Didn't Help Prevent or Mask Split Ends

    Again, I'm dissapointed in Tresemme, I have yet to find a product that does even a semblance of what it promises. Used as both a leave-in conditioner and as a split end mender, I've seen no discernable change in my hair. Some split end mender formulas work like a glue to bind the split for a day or so. This doesn't. As a leave-in conditioner, my hair was oily and not any softer or less frizzy. I'd give this zero stars if I could.
