Partly here to try out stuff to make sure I like them before making pricey investments in makeup products that I might not like after a few times using or trying outside the store. This is especially important since I'm gong to be going into schooling and training to become a makeup artist for theater and film and have to acquire quite a collection regularly. I try a lot to use only cruelty free brands, but will use what I can if it's just given to me and is good quality ( meaning I try super hard not to directly buy from animal tested brands when I can). So far I won;t really do quite normal makeup, but will have to learn if I'm going into the makeup artist field.
Being a naturally curly/wavy and thick haired girl, you need the right kind of products to care for your locks, and this hair type tends to have dryness issues and major frizz so you gotta keep the locks hydrated. This is one of my hair care routine products I've been satisfied with. I'm also really big into not using SLS/harmful sulfates, silicones, and animal tested cosmetics, which is how I found out about this brand.
Oddly this stuff seemed to kinda do the opposite of my basic organic Giovanni shampoo which makes my hair light and have more volume sometimes. Though my hair still will get big and frizzy if I brush it once dry without a frizz relaxer, so I guess that's what the volume is for then? Otherwise I think it't just a marketing label. The only benefit I saw from it was that it was sulfate free.
This stuff is great beginner theatrical makeup artists and is wonderful for cosplays. I used this for an entire weekend for a July horror convention in the midwest with my vampire cosplay that involved a fair amount of bodypaint and was very satisfied with how durable it was. The trick is to apply a layer before and after the makeup for added sweat/waterproofing. I still used my finishing powder for back up and to get rid of the shine it can leave. This is much better than the mahron barrier spray in my opinion and is way less sticky and blotchy ( though I think some of that might have had to do with not cleaning the nozzle after each use to prevent blockage from building) up. I'll have to buy a bigger size in the future since I went through 3/4ths of the bottle in 3 days. Bonus points especially since they're cruelty free!
I flew this last year when I had to fly across the country to Nashville and back, and they've impressed me. Despite having an hour layover in the Dallas airport on the way home, the jets themselves are very accommodating. Their touchscreens they have with all the seats are wonderful and the fact they let you watch stuff for free including adult swim and feature films. I seemed to luck out twice with my assigned seats to be sitting right behind first class in the seats with more leg room and nicer fold out side tables. I think from what I remember they had good service with serving drinks. Oh and these planes aren't as gross as some other airlines.
One of my all-time favorite lipsticks I've been using since I was 13, when my aunt first gave me one. I'm picky when it comes to the right dark red and burgundy I look for in lip color products, but this is one of the best ones I've come across so far. The only downsides are the constant need to re apply it if your eat, drink, or even kiss someone (trust me it will smear all over both of your mouths) and just fades over time if you don't use some sort of sealant, and that sadly Revlon tests on animals, so I tend to try and buy them from indirectly from the company.
Been using this stuff for about 9 years? I stopped using the repairing lotion regularly though since I didn't find it to be that helpful and didn't care for the feel of it. Otherwise I like the stuff. I use it mainly because my mother buys it though (I don't think I would pay that kind of money for minor acne stuff as an adult without trying a bunch of other stuff first ). I mainly use the toner daily.
Been using this for years since my mother buys the entire packages, but never uses toners and gives them to me. I usually use this in the daytime and before applying makeup. This can dry out the skin sometimes so it;s good to take a break sometimes. I tend to reapply sometimes depending on the weather and how oily my skin decides to me, but it helps with that. Most of all it really helps with any adulthood acne and prevention.
