Lash Boosting Mascara
I just bought the new lash boosting mascara, in the same adorable packaging except it's black, and it's supposed to promote length, thickness, and volume over time and enhance lashes instantly. I have never been this obsessed with a mascara from the first use, my lashes are suddenly gigantic and gorgeous, it's like my eyes just appeared, and it feels good going on. The brush is a little intimidating, but its not problematic. I got the ultra black because I cannot stand when products look grey instead of black. I swear it doesn't even feel like I am wearing mascara. This is my absolute favorite mascara I've tried to date.

Exceptional Definition Nutrient Enriched Mascara
I am actually reviewing the Exceptional Definition Nutrient Enriched Mascara, which is nowhere to be found on this site. The packaging looks identical, and I can say that it sounds like the two formulas are very similar. I find that this takes a little longer than desired to dry, is decent in terms of appearance, but nothing special, and unfortunately,I find that my eyelashes tend to itch a little due to the formula and then I accidentally pull them out. So whatever good the nutrients are supposedly doing is kind of counteracted by that. It's an okay mascara with decent building power, but there are cheaper ones that are more worthy of the money.

Garnier Hair Color
This is my favor brand of hair color, which is ironic, since I hate everything else Garnier I've tried. I've stopped dyeing my hair, but if I ever do it again, I'm going back to this. It smells much nicer than anything else, and does a good job; I've dyed my hair countless times in the past, and my favorite and most recent color I've done was their Raspberry Truffle color, which was very dark, but has lightened up nicely, and complements my natural hair growth quite nicely. I'm definitely a fan of the mahogany shades. :)

Infusium 23 Color Defender Conditioner
I used to love Infusium when I was younger, and would put it in after swimming. So I gave this a shot last time I ran out of conditioner. It's okay, but a little greasy for my taste, and I had a lot of product build up very fast from this, it even caused a small amount of dandruff, which I haven't had in years, so I wouldn't recommend it unless you have absolutely parched hair in need of detangling and maybe use a clarifying shampoo with it or something.

doesn't really work
For me, all this does is maybe help my hair's condition? and add the scent of violets, which is nice I guess. I found the only thing in the tousle me line that sort of worked was the shampoo, but if I used the conditioner, my hair would immediately be straight again, and my hair needs conditioner like mad. Maybe this product works great for some people, but it just doesn't really do anything for me except add a scent to my hair. I am a fan of hello hydration conditioner, and one shampoo of theirs called unbreakable seduction, which I had never seen before, and it looked good, so I bought it. I would recommend those for someone with fine, dry, mostly straight hair over the tousled products.

EOS lip balms
I have three of these little eggs, in summer fruit, honeysuckle honeydew, and lemon drop (SPF 15), and I'm pretty happy with them. I've definitely used more compact or moisturizing products, but these offer a pleasant taste and smell, decent moisture payoff, and they're very handy. I can always seem to find these faster than the stick balms when my lips are really dried out. My favorite is the honeysuckle honeydew, which reminds me of the honeysuckle that grows around my house.

I could not find the EDP to review so I'm doing it on here since I have the inner grace perfume. Its a lovely, fresh scent, with more sophistication than most of the other philosophy scents. It smelled horrible on my hand in the store, but only because of some self tanner I had smeared on prior. So its a nice light scent, but I caution you not to mix it with a lot of other smells, so as not to lose the desired effect.

saves my hair every time it starts to feel like straw, lovely scent, one of the few and proud repurchased products I keep coming back to

I have this in the new waterproof version (it's in a red container, and could not find it on the site, so I am reviewing here). Oh my God, it is so disappointing, because it is really pretty, but it makes my lashes brittle and dry and I cannot get the stuff off with any amount of makeup remover/facial cleanser/showering/scrubbing, etc for an entire week! It's not pretty having slow flaky fallout and lashes coming off. I love the name, and other Maybelline mascara is the bee's knees, but I will definitely not be buying this again.
