Hair and beauty product brand names review

Updated on January 2, 2010


L'oreal consistently produce high quality make-up products, although i have questioned some of the eyeshadow shades they have available. I bought a blue shades L'oreal eye-shadow pallet about six months ago. The colours looked nice in the palette, but they were way too bright on my skin, it looked totally drag-queen. So that was a waste of 28 dollars! But L'oreal also have some lovely eyeshadow, lipstick and nail polish shades.

L'oreal is one of my personal favourite brands because their makeup is easy to apply and good quality. L'oreal tends to be a little pricier than other chain-store brands,and sometimes the cheaper brand products are up to the same standards of L'oreal, sometimes their not. But you can generally trust that those extra few dollars are well spent with Loreal.

There's one L'oreal product i'm disappointed with, shampoo and conditioner from the new Elvive range. I purchased this shampoo and conditioner that were supposed to repair damage. I used them 3 times a week for about 6 weeks, and i didn't notice any difference. My hair wasn't even as shiny and soft as it normally is when i use my regular shampoo and conditioner. But their hair-dyes are great.

L'oreal moisturizers and skin treatments are reasonably effective, results vary from person to person.

L'oreal foundations can be really good if you choose the correct color to match your skin. Their foundations generally suit a specific skin tone, and they often have a large variety of shades available which can be confusing. If you choose a L'oreal foundation that is too light, you will look washed out, if you choose a shade that is too dark, it will give your face an orange tinge. It always important to judge your skin-tone correctly to get a foundation that suits you best. If your unsure what colour your skin-tone is, ask a beauty sales rep to assist you in selecting your foundation.

L'oreal rating 9/10

Thin lizzy

Thin lizzy certainly has it's ups and Downs. The powder is easily applied, and applied evenly with the thick brush that comes with the compact. This powder can really compliment your skin if you get it right, and if you put too much on, you can wipe some off, and blend the mistake in with your brush. This stuff does not sit well on your skin in a hot temperature environments!! If you are wearing thin lizzy powder in hot temperatures, you will acquire quite a glaze on your face coat. This will make you look like your sweating like a pig! So thin lizzy is best kept to add a little glow in winter.

Thin lizzy lip gloss is delicious, although some people won't appreciate the thickness of it. The eye-liner is actually pretty crap. It doesn't glide on easily, and the black isn't dark enough.

Thin Lizzy rating 7/10


Garnier products are very user friendly, they smell great, their aesthetically pleasingly packaged, and they're affordable. The quality of Garnier products is inconsistent. Some Garnier products are great, some just don't seem to do the job their supposed to at all.

Garnier shampoos and conditioners increase shine and add scent, and are best suited for low-maintenance hair. By low-maintenance hair i mean hair that is not color treated, is thin-medium thickness, and has none-minimal damage. If your hair doesn't fit into that category, then you will probably not find any benefits of using Garnier shampoo and conditioner.

My personal experience with Garnier is that some of their other hair products are a bit of gamble. I love the hairsprays, they smell delish and don't solidify your hair. Some of the gels and waxes are another story though. My boyfriend has tried Garnier styling products hard hair, surf hair, and a couple of other gels, and he didn't think that any of them did the job. Apparently they were all a bit weak, but my boyfriend does have a particularly wild head of hair, so those products may be beneficial to people with more tame sort of hair.

Garnier rating 7/10


Pantene hands-down takes the cake for long time, quality consistent hair products. Pantene is the BEST shampoo and conditioner I've ever used, and i have tried a lot of shampoos and conditioners! Pantenes hot oil treatment for hair is something i recommend to anyone whom has dry hair, damage to their hair, or wants to add shine.

Pantene rating 10/10

Elizabeth Arden

Elizabeth Arden products are luxury all the way, substantially pricier than many other chain-store beauty products, but you get what you pay for.

At some stage this year i bought an Elizabeth Arden moisturiser-prev-age, at 220dollars. If i could afford to buy it right now, i would. This stuff feels amazing on your skin, like fresh morning dew. This moisturiser can be used on the body, as a daily face moisturiser, or as an anti-aging treatment. I highly recommend this product to those fortune enough to be able to afford the stuff!

Elizabeth Arden rating 10/10


These brand names fit under the same category because products from these brands are generally of decent quality and reasonably priced.

If you've got a tight beauty budget, i recommend that you select from these brands.

Rating 8/10

Lancome are generally over-priced, and their products are generally low-average quality. They do have the odd good thing though, their facial-skin treatments being their strongest point. Although i wouldn't recommend lancome products over any other brands products.

Lancome rating 6/10
