Product reviews

I am a beauty fiend I love all things gorgeous and am willing to try anything out once (or twice for that matter) Here are some things I bought recently and my wish list of things I want to buy soon".

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation in Cocoa
They Say:
Revolutionary whipped formula provides an air-soft, perfect matte finish coverage, with a weightless feel.
Color pigments offer superior coverage
Blends effortlessly for a soft, natural-looking, even-toned result
Now in 16 shades

The princess says:
I absolutely adore it!!! I'm aware that this foundation has been out at least a year, but I had some issues with the idea of a mousse foundation. First off I'm a dark chocolate girl and I NEVER believed that I would be able to find a good foundation at a drug store. Second when I think "mousse foundation" I here "cream based" foundation. That's a big hell no to my already uber-oily mug. But that was definitly NOT the case. It's a very light, matte, "whipped" consistency, and goes on very smooth. And not to mention staying power. I'm a restaurant supervisor, so when it gets busy and I start ripping around like a crazy woman my foundation stays put, and still looks good. Which is always a plus!

Clairol Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing conditioner

What they say:
i'm deliciously hydrating. give your dry hair a drink with my moisturizing conditioner. i say you can never get too much of a good thing. so say "hello" to a deep dousing of lush hydration with my rich formula fused with moisturizers, orchids & coconut milk. drink up and replenish your hair's much needed moisture. it's time to be reunited with manageable, silky, smooth hair.

Sorry about their obvious over the top ad lameness

What the princess says:

It smells fantastic and has made a huge difference in the feel of my hair! I used it as a leave in when I cornrowed my hair last week. It made the process OH SO MUCH EASIER! My hair feels much softer and that's a pretty big feat because I am 17 weeks post relaxer and my new growth has taken over! LOL I really like this product!
P.S. I will say this is a great conditioner, but I am a conditioner/moisture fiend so I do use multiple conditioners when washing my hair I can't say ALL of that great hair feeling came from Hello Hydration, but I sure will say it did attribute to it

The princess says: I have been using this for OVER 2 years and lately it's really starting to irritate my skin. Maybe I've just gotten over the need for something that strong and now I'm looking to move on. Yes I know it's supposed to give you this wonderful tingle, but now the tingle is a little too strong and I just think my skin outgrew it. So as soon as this "almost new" *sigh* bottle is gone I'll be moving on to Clinique's Type IV Facial Soap.

Benefit's b-spot eau de toilette


Every gal's got one (a few, actually)... b spots, that is. Awaken your most seductive pulse points with this new fragrance from Benefit. It's a sexy combo of lush mango; faster, faster, freesia; provocative peony & steamy sandalwood... and don't forget to shake, shake, shake your amber, baby!

The Princess says: Where has this been all my life!!! I use this a lot when me and the BF have date nights (oddly enough he wants to get a little closer when I have this on *shrugs and smirks*) hmm go figure. It's just an all around hot and sexy scent. It's not my everyday one, but when I put it on for a special occasion you better believe it's gonna be special LOL

  1. You need to try Herbal Essence's Long term relationship conditioner. I use the leave in and it is fantastic! Plus I have heard great things about it =)
