  • Garnier Fructis Style Brilliantine Shine Glossing Spray

    This is one of the best shine spray's I've used, I have medium thick hair that has never been color treated. It lasts all day long and is super reflective. The scent is kind of like green apples and something fresh, I don't know what it is but it is great! Very inexpensive, it is worth a try!

  • CHI Silk Masque for Coarse Hair

    CHI Silk Masque for Coarse Hair

    Overlooked Product

    This hair mask is a life saver. I was looking for a hair treatment that I could use without having to fuss with hot oils or an expensive salon treatment. I stumbled across it in a discount store and had used CHI products before. The product is amazing! I can't believe I'm writing the first review, people need to try this. It is a far superior product to other masks I've tried. The smell is unique but subtle, it reminds me a little of peaches. I use the product about once a month. The bottle is good for about 10-15 uses. I have medium thick hair that is medium length and I find I use about 2 quarter sizes of product each time I use it. After a shampoo, I work the masque into my hair with my fingers or a wide toothed comb. (never a brush, it damages hair when it is wet). I found that putting a shower cap over my hair reflects the heat back onto my hair with the product so it is absorbed more effectively. Leave it on for a half hour, and it is important to rinse it out with lukewarm or cold water. The cold water seals the hair's cuticle and the addition of the product makes my hair incredibly shiny. After drying my hair the product makes it feel very thick, soft, and healthy, like I stepped out of a salon after getting split ends trimmed off. The scent lingers all day, but like I said it is very pleasant. If you have any hair damage from heat, coloring, or every day wear and tear, give this product a try! You will never go back!

  • Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick

    Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick

    Wet n wild lipstick

    The lipstick is one of the better ones I have tried. I got this product as a gift, and the color was an obnoxious red that was almost a fuschia. It's really too bad that I have to layer other products over it to mute the color, because the lipstick is very smooth and has a fantastic color payoff. It's great drugstore lipstick than can be compared to department store varieties.

  • M.A.C. Lipstick

    M.A.C. Lipstick

    Must have!

    I purchased my first lipstick from this brand and I love it! The color is consistent and so smooth! It doesn't dry out my lips. The vanilla scent is light and not at all overpowering. I really recommend trying on the color before purchasing, it can vary. I bought mine at a makeup counter compared to online, the online photos can sometimes display misleading colors.

  • Clinique Blended Face Powder and Brush

    I got this product in Translucent, which is supposed to be compatible with any skin color, but I have used it on other people and I found that Translucent should be used mostly for lighter skin colors, medium or olive being the darkest. The powder is very fine, but does not settle into any lines in the face. I use it within minutes of applying my foundation to set it. It gives a matte finish that is still natural. The natural glow of the face still comes through without being shiny or oily. The complimentary brush that is provided can spoil the product, I found it was scratchy and not appropriate for this powder, it made it go on too thick and uneven. Invest in a nice brush and this powder is great! Love it.

  • Lancome Teint Miracle

    Lancome Teint Miracle

    Best foundation I've ever used

    This foundation can be tricky to master for one's skin, but I have been using this product for about a year now. I have combination skin that is light in color, and it is great that this foundation has such a large range of colors, finally I found a shade light enough for me! The foundation is not full coverage, but it is so easy to layer it and reapply it during the day if needed. I find using a sponge is best for applying this as fingers or a foundation brush leaves tracks (I have tried several brushes). There are many primers I have tried that are compatible with it, not just Lancome primers. I found that I have had negative effects that other people experience like it melting off or oxidizing on my skin when I clean my skin just before applying it, or don't clean it at all. With the right balance of natural oils from your face and a little primer the foundation will last a good 12 hours. The natural glow this foundation gives you is unbeatable, so if you are having trouble with the product, experiment with it before you toss it and you will love it!

  • Benefit High Beam

    High beam goes on super smooth and is very subtle on my light skin, it's good for a natural look. If you want your cheekbones to really pop you can keep layering the product. It is a little pricey but really great quality!
