Empties: #2 (Haircare)

1. Head & Shoulders Eucalyptus 

I received this sample from PinchMe (overview coming soon), and loved it. I don't know what it is about the smell but it smelt like candy to me. Surprisingly I got about 5 uses from this tiny sample so I was really able to test it out. If you have a sensitive scalp I don't think this'll be good for you. While it doesn't tingle I would still suggest you stay away. If you have a problem with your hair falling out in the shower I recommend this and the Head & Shoulders anti breakage shampoo. While I still have hair fallout it is about 3/4 less than it used to. 

Repurchase: Already have 

2. Organic Care Nourish Shampoo 

This is a nice shampoo. It smells like coconut and macadamia and it did a good job of cleaning my hair. I used to repurchase this all the time for about a year but I decided to try other products which worked out a lot better for me so unfortunately I won't repurchase it but I loved it while I used it.  

Repurchase: No

3. Organic Care Nourish Conditioner

Once again good a conditioner but I've moved onto something else for now, we'll see. This was in my last empties, click here. Honestly it's not super hydrating but it was nice. 

Repurchase: Not sure 

4. Head & Shoulders anti-breakage shampoo
I also enjoyed this, it had a similar effect on my hair as the eucalyptus in terms of minimising hair breakage (which is why I bought it). But I preferred the smell of the other.

Repurchase: Maybe

5. Girlz Only Dry Shampoo
I really enjoy these. They don't make my hair white but they will if you spray too much. There are so many scents that I think there would be one to suit most people's taste. It does a good job at absorbing the oil. The only thing negative I have to say is that 2 of these stop working after ONE use. Something happened with the nozzle/spray top (not sure what it's called). I used it once and the product wouldn't stop spraying so I put the lid on and next time I opened it liquid came out (so be WARNED). But they're only $2 so it's okay but if it happens too often I will stop purchasing it. 

Hazy days (Light pink/purple) - light, fruity scent
Dawn 'til Dusk (Teal) -  strong kind of manly smell
Brighter pink  - stronger floral scent 

Sorry about the bad descriptions

Repurchase: Yes

Review: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Image: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Claims: "Extremely fast drying top coat. Protects your nail polish against chipping"

How long would you expect a "quick dry" top coat to dry, 60 seconds maybe 2 minutes? Well don't expect too much from this top coat. Every time I've used this top coat I've had problems with my nail polish smudging or sheet lines when I wake up. 

The top coat does dry fairly quickly however the nail polish remains soft and smudges if your not careful. I tried it a few times but the last time I tried it I left it for an hour and a half to fully set and without doing anything that would ruin the polish before going to sleep but when I woke up my nail polish had sheet marks. All I can say is disappointing. 

Yes it is a cheap product but from essence I expected a lot better. I've used a few essence products but this was the WORST. 

In terms of protection from chipping I don't believe it makes much of a different. My test for this was rimm…

Haul: Myer, David Jones and Priceline

Review: UBU Shady Lady Eyeshadow Brush (No. 30)

Claim: "All eyes on you baby. Love your lids with this short synthetic bristle brush perfectly molded to your eye shape."

If you want a brush to apply eyeshadow all over the lid then this is NOT the brush for that. 

There are a few reasons why it's a bad all over the eye lid brush. 
1) Bristles are not flexible 
2) Bristles are too firm 
3) Bristles from the base are fairly thick but as it tapers to the top it becomes too thin therefore not enough eyeshadow can get onto the brush to actually be applied smoothly all over the lid. 

However, this brush is really good for applying eyeshadow on the lower lash line. So if your looking to set your eyeliner with eyeshadow this is a handy tool. It is the right amount of thickness and firmness to apply eyeshadow on the lash line. 

- Doesn't do what it claims

- Great for lower lash line
- Cheap 

Rating: 2.5 

Where and how much: K-mart - $6.00
