This is by far the best thing for hair care. I used to have to wash my hair every other day and would end up with very frizzy hair. after I started using Miss Jessie's I wash my hair every 5 days. I can now be outside on a very hot day and my head will not smell of sweat or anything. I have long, thick & wavy hair and this product works really good for me. I have tried to look for another less expensive product but nothing works like this. also, my husband suffers from some kind of dermatitis and after trying many medicated shampoo's and oils for over a year with no relief, this product alleviated his itchy scalp.
The Urban Decay Naked Beauty Balm is sort of like a foundation, but has more purpose than to just be a makeup that covers up the flaws on your face. It is also meant to enhance your face and skin over time. This is a nice, light product to use in place of a foundation, not in addition to. The bronzing adds a little shine/color so this is likely best to use during the summer months if you're a light or fair skinned person. If you're a medium to darker skinned person then this is something you can probably wear year round. It applies nicely with a beauty sponge or other similar tool. A brush works as well, whichever application you find most suited for your skills. It doesn't have as good of coverage as my foundation, but it works nicely for days that I am going for a more natural look, but still want to create an even surface to work with.
Review for: Mac Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation Loose Medium New In Box 8.5 g/8.5 g / 0.3 oz more...
This is the most smooth, natural, matte, yet glowing powder I have ever used. It can easily be worn alone or over a foundation as a setting powder and/or for touch ups throughout the day. In case one has never tried it, it does not come with a puff or sponge, so you have to apply with whatever you prefer, but I recommend a brush. A big fluffy brush for setting over foundation, or a buffing/kabuki if you want to use it as a foundation. Beautiful finish!!
I love this foundation! It's not greasy, and the pump with the brush is fantastic - I don't have to get anything on my hands! I use one pump on each cheek and then will spread any residue left on my forehead and chin. The color blends so well with my skin. I use Clinique Superpowder on top and I'm good to go for the day with nice even skin! Love it!
My only complaint at this point is that I can't find it anywhere but online, and I don't understand why. I found it through an in-store demo at Sephora, and bought it there a few times. In the last year or so, every time I go in there and ask for it, they have no clue what I'm talking about. Same thing with Ulta, or any other makeup store that stocks Too Faced. It makes me a little nervous that they are going to discontinue it, but it is usually on TooFaced's best seller list and it has rave reviews on their website. Who knows. As long as I can get it online, I'm happy.
My favorite eye liner ever! This stuff is it. I won't ever use any other. It stays on forever and it's so black. I have tried so many other name brand eyeliners this is the blackest one I have ever found. I won't ever go back!
The Too Faced Starry-Eyed Liquid Eyeliner is just what I was looking for. Unlike other liquid-glitter eyeliners which only leave a few specks of glitter on your eye lid and wear-off after a while, Too Faced Starry-Eyed Liquid Eyeliner coats your eye lid with a thin line of glitter and it stays put throughout the day. Even going clubbing, dancing and sweating the glitter doesn't melt away or get into your eyes. I recommend this product to anyone who wants to look flashy on a night out or just to spice up your normal look during the day! Also I think it is very worth it for the price.
I was intrigued by this product because I had never heard of cleansing oil. I googled "cleansing with oil" and read some unbiased articles and opinions to get a sense of the logic involved here. Light oils applied to the face combine with the sebum naturally produced and maybe now hardened in your pores to help dilute and loosen them. When you then wipe or rinse all that off, dirt and impurities trapped there are removed but your skin, the largest organ in your body isn't left devoid of oil. If it detects oil is gone completely, as happens with severe scrubbing or using soaps or chemicals that dissolve oils, the skin sometimes overcompensates and exacerbates the problem. Leaving a layer of clean oil coating the skin eliminates that problem. So cleansing oil isn't the latest sales gimmick, but actually makes a lot of sense. Generations of cultures did this with especially olive oil for centuries. Getting back to this L'Occitan product, the label lists the first ingredient as sunflower oil. At first that seemed disappointing since the label emphasizes the word Shea. But sunflower oil is lighter with less fatty acids and so feels silkier and makes a better carrier oil to penetrate into the pores and dissolve/combine with the skin's sebum impacted there. Shea is listed lower in the ingredients but at just 5% is enough to offer it's lubricating and softening properties. As far as the mechanics, you're instructed to put perhaps a quarter's sized amount in your palms and rub your hands together, this warms the oil, and apply it to the face. Massage it into the skin. Add some water and the surface becomes a thin milky film. Massage a bit more then rinse off. My skin felt silky smooth and very clean without feeling oily at all. Some websites recommended using this cleansing method perhaps 3 times a week as opposed to every day. Cost and value wise, since you use such a small amount of product each use, it should last a very long time, several months, so while not cheap seems reasonable. Several oils are mentioned in the articles as good choices for oil cleansing with sunflower being recommended as the main ingredient and either castor oil or shea highly recommended at smaller proportions. You can buy those oils separately for about a dollar an ounce and experiment with your own concoctions at a considerable savings. But seeing how long lasting this product should be, I think I'll just leave the mixing to L'Occitane. I'm impressed with this new product and method that evidently is the new rage in facial cleansing based on the buzz I saw online.
