  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

    I have pretty oily skin that doesn't respond to very much out there, so when a sales associate suggested this to me, I was super skeptical that it would work for me. Boy, I've never been so happy to be wrong in all my life! When I use this stuff, my eyeshadow not only pops, but it stays ALL DAY. While I'm constantly blotting and eventually wiping away my foundation and blush, my eyes still look amazing! I haven't worn eyeshadow without this, and as long as it's available (which I hope is forever) I never will go without it. It's worth every pretty penny.

  • TIGI Bed Head Moisture Maniac Conditioner

    TIGI Bed Head Moisture Maniac Conditioner

    Moisture without the Weight

    I have relaxed hair that gets pretty dry and poofy mid-week, so this stuff works as a great moisture boost in between shampoos. After it's rinsed out, I'm left with soft, smooth and shiny hair that stays that way until my weekend shampoo, but it doesn't make my hair heavy and greasy looking like conditioners made for relaxed hair do. I'm not crazy about the scent, but it doesn't last after it's rinsed out. Overall, I love it.

  • Smashbox Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer
    9.0

    Smashbox Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer

    Glad I finally listened!

    Every time I went to Sephora for a foundation recommendation, the associates would say, "Why not try a tinted moisturizer and a translucent powder instead?" I'd think, "With my oily, uneven complexion? Yeah, right?!" I also didn't think any company made a tinted moisturizer for us darker girls. So I kept heading for matifying powder foundations that looked cakey and aged me significantly. One day I finally listened and tried this tinted moisturizer and I was/am blown away with the results! Not only does it come in my shade of brown, it's oil free and allows me to look my age (if not a bit younger!). It is a bit "wet" at first, but that allows for sheer, yet maximum coverage. A little dusting of a translucent loose powder over it and you're good to go! I also love, love, love the fact that it has sunscreen in it! Such a simple way to go, but such amazing results. Highly recommended!

  • Redken Real Control Shampoo
    10.0

    Redken Real Control Shampoo

    Repaired My Damage Relaxed Hair Instantly

    I fried my hair the other day too soon after a relaxer touch-up and was almost in tears at the fact that no moisture would penetrate the cuticles. I washed my hair, and conditioned it with the Real Control. Then, I used the Real Control Intensive Renewal deep conditioner sitting under my hooded dryer for 15 minutes (medium setting). I rinsed it out and applied both the Real Control heat resist and the styling cream and my hair was transformed! I cannot tell you how excited I was to see that a Great hair day was only an hour away! Wow!!!!!

  • Garnier Nutri-Pure Detoxifying Wet Cleansing Towelettes

    Finally, I found a cleansing cloth that removes dirt and makeup, but also removes oil without completely drying out my sensitive skin. This smells incredible and if I use it for quick touch-ups on the go, I don't freak out if I forget to pack moisturizer, because this leaves my skin refreshed and not at all dry. Highly recommended for any skin type.

  • L'Oreal Paris Clean Artiste Eye Make-Up Remover
    6.0

    L'Oreal Paris Clean Artiste Eye Make-Up Remover

    Smells great, takes a little effort though

    I like the way this smells, but it doesn't remove my eye makeup as quickly as some other products I've used. I feel like I either have to soak the cotton pad/ball or use a lot of elbow grease to get my makeup off. This is even when I go with a more natural/subtle look. It requires too much tugging for me to honestly recommend it. It's a pass.

  • Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Bar for Face and Body

    I bought this because the foam version of this soap was sold out at the three stores I know carry it. This had to do because if I go a day without my Clinique Acne Solutions regimen, it's noticeable. Unfortunately, even though it does okay at keeping the acne away, my skin doesn't get the healthy glow from this like it does with the foam. Perhaps, I'm just not a fan of bar soaps, but this didn't do it for me. I had to get the foam and there's a lot of bar left. Guess I'll just keep it for body bumps, because it's just not that great for my face.

  • Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum
    8.0

    Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum

    Cuts my styling time in half

    I have relaxed hair that is high-maintenance, meaning it needs extra attention and TLC to keep it in my head. With this serum, I'm able to use less heat because it does as it promises and reduces my drying time. Also, because it leaves my hair so sleek after blow drying, I don't need to take very long to flat iron my hair even straighter. Paul Mitchell works for all hair types, and this is one of my favorites from the brand.

  • L'Oreal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Color Truth Eyeliner

    If you're like me and get a little heavy-handed with the eyeliner, especially the cheap ones that have no color, you'll never use any other eyeliner but this one! I get the color and coverage I need, yet I never overdo it and it lasts all day and into the night. This has got to be the best liner I've used. It does have a tendency to smudge on the bottom lid, but not as bad as other liners do. Overall, this is my new liner of choice.

  • Neutrogena Triple Moisture Healing Shine Serum

    Because of the humidity lately, I've had to use a ton of "de-frizzing" products, which have a tendency to suck all the moisture right out of your hair! So, you try shine serums that are okay, but do nothing for moisture. Well this little bottle gives nice shine, replenishes just the right amount of moisture and keeps frizz at bay! It's my latest beauty secret, kept in my handbag for a quick touch-up once or twice in the afternoon or at night. My only concern is that it's a bit difficult to get off your hands. But it's worth it!
