Products that I received were:
- Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask - $14.50, (CF)
- amika Nourishing Mask - $4.00 (V, CF)
- R+Co HIGH DIVE Moisture & Shine Crème - $2.70, (CF, V)
- Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream - $4.71
- The Beauty Crop GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick in Imma Bawse - $12, (CF)
- *CF = Cruelty Free, V = Vegan
The amika Nourishing Mask managed to last me a whopping two treatments. Hey, I'm not complaining. My hair felt pretty well nourished but I cannot say if it was any better or worse than it otherwise would be. Smelled great though.
I loved this R+Co leave-in conditioner. 15mL was able to cover my entire head and I was able to get this look with next-day-hair. Unfortunately, as I was calculating values for this post I realized that I would only get about 10 uses out of a bottle which is highly unfortunate considering the cost. Needless to say I narrowly avoided buyer's remorse on this one.

I am pretty indifferent to the Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream. It is too thick for me to feel comfortable using knowing that it will make me look like a grease slick by the end of the day. I already have a preferred product for spot treatments (reviewed here) and the consistence of this product means it will just last me forever. I've taken to using this as a moisturizer at night in hopes that it might even out my skin tone. The Dr. Jart website states that the product is cruelty free but it does not attest as to whether or not that applies only to the final product (which I assume that is the case).
Last but not least I received a liquid lipstick by a company I've never heard of called The Beauty Crop. This one came in the shade Imma Bawse and man it's sexy a f. It is a very deep "power suit" red that is slightly cool/brown toned. The formula is a little liquidy but the pigment is so ridiculously opaque that it just melts my heart. It's also not overly sticky, not drying and doesn't have a smell. Most importantly: It actually washes away (an issue I've been having with Tarte liquid lipsticks lately).
