"While I love having thick long hair, styling it can be a real hassle since I have to tame my frizz constantly. While using Kerastase Luminous Perfecting Shampoo my hair was fresh and smooth immediately after drying. It made my hair so much easier to style!" - Emilee, Emilee Anne
"I could tell a noticeable improvement in my hair's shine after using this shampoo. I also thought the smell was divine." - Meghan, Wit + Whimsy
"This did wonders for my hair! It literally got rid of my dead ends." - Kat, With Love From Kat
"Over the past decade, my hair has seen it all. From highlights to bleaching and back to adding color, it is easy to get fried hair. Davines Love Smoothing Conditioner really revitalized my dry ends and brought them back to life! After trying multiple 'color treated hair' conditioners over the years, I am happy to find one that actually reverses the damage." - Emilee, Emilee Anne
"The Drybar Chaser was the best of all worlds in terms of a hair treatment. It added shine and texture, didn't have an overpowering smell, removed flyaways and came in the perfect sized container." - Meghan, Wit + Whimsy
"It's always hard to find a dry shampoo for dark hair so I rarely use it unless it is completely necessary. But on days I feel like I need that extra oomph I reach for the Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo. It smells amazing and really soaks up the oil and allows your to achieve that extra volume you are trying to achieve." - Kailani, Kailani's Korner
"Most brands that I have experience with leave my hair feeling crispy, crunchy and everything else that gives hairspray a bad rep. With Living Proof Flex Shaping hair spray I barely even noticed it, except for the fact that my hair held its shape with a natural look. Simply amazing." - Emilee, Emilee Anne
"This spray was lightweight and had the perfect amount of hold. Also loved the sleek packaging." - Meghan, Wit + Whimsy
"Josie Maran's Argan oil is a great do-it-all for hair both before and after drying." - Meghan, Wit + Whimsy
Lorac Cobra Mascara
"The design of this mascara wand gives you a lot of product. Many times with mascara, you simply don't get enough of the product onto your lashes, but this one really deposits a good amount of mascara, thus giving my lashes dramatic volume." - Teni, Miss Maven
"Managed to remove all of my makeup the first wash and didn't leave my skin feeling dry or tight at all afterwards! I could easily go without moisturizer after if I wanted to. It left my skin clean and bright, loved it!" - An, Haute Pink Pretty
"I absolutely swear by this. Since trying it, it has been my go-to makeup remover. It is really soft but tough on make-up and sunscreen. I am a huge sunscreen junkie, but sometimes it is hard to get off and the products you normally use to take it off at the end of the day can dry your skin out. Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm did all of the above without drying out my skin. It actually made it softer and more nourished. I am fully impressed!" - Mary, M.A.S. Fashion
"Some people tend to confuse break-outs with oily skin when really, your body produces more facial oil because your skin is too dry. That is why I love the Murad Night Cream. It is skin perfecting, and also incredibly hydrating." - Kendal, Metropolitan Thread
"With just one coat, Essie Luxedo gets the job done. The full color isn't like other dark nail polishes which sometimes require more than one coat or can sometimes come off as sheer." - Serena, The Spicy Stiletto
"Neutral shades can be tricky -- sometimes leaving streaks, not fully covering the nail bed evenly -- but this one doesn't have that problem. Also, this neutral has a unique sheen to it, leaving nails looking fresh rather than ash-y." - Serena, The Spicy Stiletto
"It's everything you hope glitter to be. Sparkly chunks of confetti on your fingertips. It's a party!" - Nikia, Model Liberation
