Hayley S.'s (barracudabeauty) Beauty Product Reviews
If this is "lower sulfates", what is a normal amount of sulfates for them!? I started using this because I was looking to lessen the amount of sulfates I was using in my hair, because I had just bleached it and dyed it blue. I was using Aussie's "Confidently Clean" shampoo before this and didn't see too much color stripping, but more than I would have liked to. Within ONE use of this shampoo, enough color had been stripped to count for about 5 or 6 washes with Aussie. I use this shampoo to wash dye off my hands after touch-ups! Do not advertise this as natural when it is FAR from it. If you're looking for no sulfates and something that really is more natural, I suggest Infusium 23's shampoo and conditioners that are actually sulfate free.
A pleasant surprise!
I have hardly ANY lip products, because I'm so obsessed with finding new eye makeup that I completely overlook anything else. So I was out shopping this past Friday and I decided I needed to buy some lipsticks, seeing as the ones I have don't stay well and aren't really every day colors. I found this lipstick in Target and picked up "Flirty". I was so surprised at how satin the finish was and how LONG it stayed on! It's almost like a stain, and it was only $2! I went back yesterday to get more of these but they were practically sold out - looks like I'm not the only person who really enjoys this lipstick! I will be buying more very soon!!
I'm not sure if this is the product I'm looking for (glide on/slide on), but it's an eye pencil and really the only one on here available for review. I was looking for a forest green and a white liner and I had heard so many wonderful things about NYX liners (I have used quite a few of their products and quite enjoy them), so while I was doing some holiday shopping in Ulta I picked up the shades I wanted. They were having a buy one get one half off sale, and I THOUGHT they were $4.49 each, which sounded like a steal. The signs were placed poorly however, and they were actually $7.99 each. Already very annoying, but I really brought that upon myself. I decided I would just deal with the price because the colors were perfect and I had fallen in love with them... Until my eyes felt like they had caught fire after using them! I am so allergic to the liner, and I have never had a makeup allergy before (even with sensitive skin). I'm so angry! I never in a million years would have thought I'd be allergic to a brand that I had never had any kind of problem with, but these liners just about killed my poor eyes! I honestly hope they'll change whatever is in the formula that causes that irritation, because I would love to give them another shot because the color payoff is great and they do stick. As for now, I'm stuck with two useless liners that I can't give away or use on anyone else because I've used them on my own eyes. Avoid these liners if you have sensitive skin.
I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE!
I was in a perfume shop and smelled a little sample of this just to see what Snooks would put together and I instantly regretted that decision because I fell in love with it and didn't have the cash to get it! But you better believe the second I do, I'm rushing back to that store to buy some of this!
I bought this a while back and used it several times with no problems. About the 4th time I used it, it DESTROYED my skin! There is NO disclaimer for this anywhere on the tube, which makes me so angry. It simply tells you how amazing your skin will look and feel after you use it. My skin was NOT happy with this product at all. I had horrible bumps on my cheeks only a small amount of time after using this, and those bumps got progressively worse over the night. It took almost two weeks to clear up the damage done by this mask. I can only use this on my nose and chin area. I do not plan on buying it again.
I bought the pink sparkly one (forgot the name, sorry!) and thought it was absolutely stunning! But by the first day after application, I had lost half of the polish from my nails because it flaked off extremely easily. That didn't bother me much, though, compared to what happened next. My polish got goopy, thick, and turned practically black IN THE BOTTLE! I have seen a few colors in the store that I've wanted to buy so badly because of how cute they were, but I talk myself out of it every time because of this experience. Very unimpressed with this product.
Best scrub I've ever used!
I bought this on a whim simply because I had a coupon for Neutrogena products, and I could not believe how pleasantly surprised I was! I use it every day and it feels like I'm leaving the spa every time I wash my face! It doesn't dry my skin out or make it feel tight, which most cleansers and scrubs do, so that was just one more bonus to it. I think I'm in love!!
