5 Product Reviews

Review #1 - Hollister Body Mists - $14 Each


Overview: First off, these are some of the favorite things I own right now. I got them on sale 2 for $20. I bought the Malibu Beach and Ventura scents. Malibu Beach has a almond vanilla super sweet smell. The scent reminds me of Exotic Coconut from Bath and Body Works, perfect for spring break and the beach. Ventura is also a sweet scent which mixes cranberry and vanilla. I love, love these scents.
Pros: Scent stays on long, no residue
Cons: Price

Review #2 Revlon PhotoReady Foundation $12


Overview: This is the best liquid foundation I've used, hands down. The thing I hate about buying drugstore makeup is that you can't try it on to match your shade. I used my hand to guess the color I would need in Walmart. This shade matches me perfectly. I had no funky coloring and very smooth blending putting this stuff on. My favorite thing about this foundation is that it has tiny tiny sparkles in it. You can't see the glitters in the bottle but once you get it on your face and get out in the sunlight, it has the prettiest shimmer. The sparkle isn't noticeable unless your up close.
Pros: Easy pump bottle, blends easily, smooth application, good coverage
Cons: Absolutely nothing.

Review #3 Physicians Formula Plump Potion Lipgloss $9



Overview: This stuff works really well as far as plumping lips goes. I noticed my lips getting fatter after about a minute and a half. However, this product doesn't KEEP your lips plump.
Pros: plumps lips, pretty shine
Cons: weird smell, doesn't last longer than thirty minutes

Review #4 L'Oreal Double Extend Mascara with Lash Boosting Serum $11



Two Ends

L'Oreal Double Extend vs. Rimmel LashMaxxx

Bare Lashes vs. Double Extend

Overview: I have mixed feelings about this product. It is very simliar to all the other double ended mascaras with the white conditioning formula and black mascara. When applying this, you have to apply the black product without letting the white product dry. If you do, it gets pretty clumpy. I like the white coat because it makes my lashes easier to see to ensure I get all of them. I put the Double Extend on one eye and my old mascara (Rimmel LashMaxxx) and the two seem to work equally well.
Pros: white coat nourishes lashes, easier to see every lash
Cons: price, can get clumpy

Review #5 Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo $5



Overview: I've recently started to wash my hair every other day and decided to buy this product to help with the greasies! Because it was my first time buying a dry shampoo, I can't compare it to any other. I do like this product though. You just spray your hair with it and wait about 5 minutes then brush it out. It leaves a white residue but once you brush it, it goes away. You have to do it several times to get the full effect. It could the amount of grease in my hair by about half and also gave me some volume. I would buy this again.
Pros: Cuts hair grease, gives volume, easy spray bottle
Cons: takes several times to get hair completely "dry shampooed"
