I was nice to have no reactions or irritation on my scalp or forehead, and less of a burning/chemical smell due to the flowery scent! LOVED! Now if they could only come out with bolder colors and more options for us dark-haired girls.... our options are usually limited if we choose not to bleach beforehand and who wants to risk all that damage just for a color change? Not me! I was very surprised that I’d actually like using Clairol’s new “Nice ‘n Easy” formula, since all I had used in the past was Garnier Fructisse hair color. If the color line available expands more to those dark brown/black hair shades, I’d probably stick with it for a while! I received this complimentary product in exchange for my honest review for PinchMe.

These are without a doubt my favorite lip liners everrrrrr!!! They are creamy & smooth, glide with NO problem, very pigmented, and comfortable to wear! You could even use them as a lip crayon and color your whole lips to use on its own. The twist pencil makes it easy to use on the go and not have to worry about sharpening, or dulling out the point. They are also SUPER affordable! At 2.99x these truly are a steal! And if you use coupons or watch out for promos at Walgreens pharmacy, you can often get them for less than a dollar! About 75-99 cents, depending on the promo. I have all 6 from the original launch, and 2 from the second release. I plan on having all in my collection, they are that good! I really hope they continue these for a long time, and can’t wait to see what other colors they come out with! With these, I never have to shop high-end for my liners. Love love love! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 @Wet N Wild Perfect Pout Gel Liners
I love this formula! It really lives up to the name of “butter gloss” - so very silky and smooth. Not goopy or sticky like many other glosses at all! I love this consistency, and it smells so yummy! They have a sweet, almost cupcake or vanilla/cake type scent which is heavenly! I think the packaging is so cute, and I think it’s great quality for the price. Can be found at various drugstores, Walmarts, Targets, or department stores (though I get mine at Ulta Beauty during BOGO 50% promos!) I usually can pick them up between 4.99-6.00, depending on location. I like that they are only slightly pigmented, and give you a almost “yeah, my lips look like this” color all the time! Upon trying for the first time, this buttergloss reminded me of L.A. Colors High Shine Gloss (though this consistency is better!) because they too have an awesome vanilla, baked goods type scent. My only complaint is that I wish the packaging was bigger, but since it’s so small and cute, I can toss in my bag or pocket while on the go with no problem! Can’t wait to buy more for my collection!

I have used Ricola cough drops/other products in the past, and I HATED them due to their taste. Even when I had the worse of sicknesses, I still refused to take anything from this brand because it would simply make me gag. A few years down the line, and I was really excited to try these because I figured they are gummies, so they MUST taste good! I was also hopeful that their products would taste better, or maybe my now adult palette would like the flavors now. WRONG! If off, they come coated in sugar, like gum drop candies, which I also HATE, and when I bit into them, they tasted worst then they looked! I was reaaaaally excited to try these out because I suffer from many chronic illnesses that weaken my immune system and always leave me depleted of any energy. I'm sorry, but I just couldn't get past the taste, Ricola! It's a big no from me. I received this as a free sample through www.PinchMe.com in exchange for a honest review. I love that I received the full size bottle for free, however I will not be purchasing nor recommending these "Herbal Immunity Supplements" to anyone in the future!
I actually used this a few years back, and thought it was discontinued, so I held on to the primer stick longer then I probably should have! I LOVE this product! It’s so silky and smooth on the lips, and can even be used without more product (lipsticks, glosses, chap stick, etc.) At times I would wear it alone because it would just give my lips a subtle sheen and make them just look more hydrated. Though it is pink, it glides on clear, so don’t let the color keep you from trying! I’m currently using ABH lip primer, but since I found out I can still order this or track down in certain stores, I may just got back to it once my high end one runs out!!! Definitely helps lip colors look more vibrant and last longer; texture helps conceal cracked/flakey lips a bit too, so they don’t show through as much one applied. Best part is that it’s very cheap considering what it is used for and how it works! Would definitely recommend! N.Y.C.

I have a few of these, but mostly in fun, bright colors I don’t find elsewhere, like a deep blue called “Sapphire” (I think) and then recently purchased “GunMetal” and I think “Siren” (?) ...a bluish-grey and a green shade. I really like how they feel on the lips, but I don’t think it’s opaque enough at first application. I find it’s sheer on my lips and I have to reapply multiple times to build up the coverage to how I’d like it. It comes off very easily, which I’m not crazy about - I like my coverage to be hard to wear off. As pretty as the colors come in this line, I found you may need to exfoliate before applying because it can accentuate and draw more attention to your lips flakes or dryness. If the formula were to be improved, I would buy a ton of them as they have an awesome shade range! Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick
These lipsticks are VERY creamy and comfortable on the lips! They glide on with almost a gel-like texture - very light and easy to wear. Very pigmented and easy to re-apply. Is not kiss/food-proof, but most bullet lipsticks aren’t. Fun range of colors! Very hydrating, and don’t stick to flakes or chapped lips. I did remove some stars though because I wasn’t impressed with the sparkle/glittery ones that I tried as part of a limited edition one year. Those were chunky in texture and DID emphasize my flakey lips. Not impressed at all. Ended up having to go to the bathroom at work and scrub it off with a wet paper towel. As long as those are avoided, I think they are a great choice for bright pops of color and hydration! Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter
Although these don’t really dry down to a matte type lipstick, it does look nice and semi-matte in photos. This is more creamy and comfortable on the lips. Despite it not drying out completely, it also lasts very long on the lips. Very nice for winter time when you still want to glam up. I really like the applicator and bottle. I find these wear very similarly to ColourPop’s “Ultra Satin Lip” formula. I think you get a good amount of product for the price (8-10$ depending where and what sale/coupons are used.) I currently own “Addiction” and “Flirtation” and I’m looking to add both “Embrace” and “Seduction” to my collection next. Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color
My first time trying this mask out and I am now in LOVE!!!!! As a person who suffers from cystic acne, I had to start using Adapelene Gel (prescription retinoid) which dries out your skin like crazy! I already had sensitive skin to begin with, so after starting the retinoid, I couldn’t use just any mask or beauty product anymore. I was drawn to try out the “Soothing & Healing” Mask, since it was made for acne prone skin dried out and irritated from treatments. This did exactly that. I brought Moisture and softness back to my face, and did NOT burn when drying. The only thing I don’t like is probably the smell (fragrance free, so you smell the strong ingredients) and the size of the bottle. It’s a small bottle for $20 dollars! However, you only need a tiny amount for each use as you only apply a thin layer and it spreads well. Plus, Ulta has it and always has specials, so it’s not that bad if you know what to look for. I got in on sale for $9.00 last week! If you’re oily, or dry/sensitive skinned but also blemish probe, I think this is a great option - either way! Will not disappoint and leave you fresh and glowing afterwards! 😉👌🏼✨Mario Badescu Healing & Soothing Mask

I have used this product at one time for over a year, and I loved it! Though the smell is AWFUL(!) it has many uses. The first time I tried it was when my hair was falling out and stopped growing due to a traumatic car accident I suffered. I had read online that this could be used as clarifying rinse for scalp, and it really worked! It ridded me of itching and any flaking. I mixed it a spray bottle why'd an equal part of water. You spray, massage into scalp, and rinse.
You can use before or after shampoo, but if you use it after, you will have the smell on you until your hair is completely dried. Though this helps balance the ph levels of your scalp, don't rub too harshly or leave on for too long. You could end up with a burning sensation.
I found this big bottle at Wal-Mart for about 4.99 and it lasted me a very long time! 1 star removed bc I can't get around the smell, though you build a tolerance over time.
