I really liked this mascara. It gave me a lot of separation without clumping. I need volume and this gives some, I would like more though. It's not perfect but it's what I tried after MF 2000 calorie was no longer availible in the US. For the most part this is a great mascara. If it could give more volume I would love it!
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Moisture Sensitive Skin
BrittyG 10/22/2009 1:12:00 PM
Wow, I see a lot of other people liked this product. I HATED IT! The packaging was nice, I liked the pump with the twist. I thought this would be a great moisturizer because it had no oil or fragrance. The first few days I used it my skin was looking pretty good. But then my skin started getting the worst breakouts of my entire life within about 4-5 days. Once I stopped using it my skin was normal about a week later. I wish this worked for me, but sadly it doesn't. :(
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Shiny-Licious - Coconut Cream
BrittyG 10/22/2009 1:06:00 PM
WOW! I love this lipgloss. I saw this at the dollar store and thought, hey why not? It smells really good (if you like coconut). The color is really great for ladies with fair skin. It's subtle but still really pretty. It's a peachy color. It has a plastic applicator which isn't my favorite, but it works. It isn't sticky, which I really like because I hate when my hair sticks to my lips. I love this stuff and I am going back to the dollar tree to get some more!!
Eye Makeup Remover -Clean & Clear - Oil free Soothing Eye Makeup Remover

I have tried all of the d/s makeup removers and this one is my new favorite. Unlike the Neutrogena one it doesn't leave your eyes super oily afterwards. And unlike L'Oreal it takes your eye m/u off really easily without tugging/rubbing. Even waterproof mascara. I am normally not a fan of Clean and Clear products so I was suprised at how much I like this! It also lasts a long time. I have had this bottle for 3 months and am only half way through. It lasts because you don't need to use as much as with most removers. Overall, if you are a d/s kinda girl and want a remover I would highly recommend this one!
I am really sad that I will not be able to buy this mascara anymore. Max Factor mascaras are the only mascaras I could consider to be a "HG" status. I think I am gonna stock up before they are gone! I got this mascara in waterproof and I love it! It really makes my lashes thick but not clumpy. It doesn't flake at all which I LOVE. One day my husband and I randomly took a 3 mile walk in the rain. POURING rain. And when I got home I expected to see at least some mascara smudges. But no, it still looked perfect. Also, for a WP mascara it isn't too hard to take off. I can get it all off with m/u remover and little rubbing. I love this mascara so much and will really miss it!
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Silk Finish blush in Berry Shimmer
BrittyG 3/19/2009 5:26:00 PM
The only negative about this product is the cheap packaging, but whatever, I will get over that. This is soooo pigmented. I barely touched my brush to the blush and that was plenty. This is going to last me forever! The reviewer below me described the color perfectly. It's so pretty, it makes me look like I just came in from the cold. I have never used a blush this dark since I am pretty pale NN15-20ish, but this works so well on me. I was so happy this was only 3 dollars and I would definately repurchase it!!!
There is both good and bad about this. I love how it covers pores so easily! It also covers blemishes pretty well. Since I started using this, I haven't been using concealer.. I just blot a bit more of this on problem areas. This hasn't broke me out either, which is nice. I got the color Porcelin Ivory, which I thought would be too light, but is just right. The only things I don't love is that this is hard to blend on dry areas of my skin. I have some areas with flakes, and it makes it hard to apply makeup over them, but this is still better than colorstay for that. Overall, I like this! EDIT: Sigh. This made me breakout really bad and in spots where I never break out. I got really bad cystic acne, which I never get. Ugh. Oh well.. It was a good foundation and I wish I could have used it.
Wow. I was very suprised by this shampoo!!! My DH and I were in Dollar Tree and I saw this and remembered the reviews, and for a dollar I thought, why not? The smell of this is really nice. Quite fruity. This probably isn't moisturizing enough for curly or really dry hair, but for my straight, fine hair this was great. It gave me shine and kept my hair clean all day. The clean lasts into the next day if I skip a shampoo. This is great for girls with fine hair!
This isn't HORRIBLE but it's not great either. I would rec. Colorstay over this. It's kind of hard to apply with the brush being long. I would say I am pretty good at applying eyeliner, but this was tough! If I made a mistake and fixed while wet, this smudged all over my entire eyelid. If I fixed while dry I had to scrub to get it off. This also can get really flaky. Don't rub your eyes or it will flake off. After I washed my face there were black flakes all over it. This does have good staying power on me and is a really dark black. It's not the best ever, but not horrible. I will use something else next time.
Hmmm I loved the colors in this so that is why I bought it. It is a little too wet/oily for my eyelids. However, I like using this as a base under powder e/s and it works really well! The pigmentation is good and the colors are nice. But not for oily eyes. Use as a base!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - expertwear eyeshadow in night sky

This is the worst e/s I have ever used. This has little pigment and is really hard to blend. It's really chalky. When I swiped some on my hand, it looked like I had sparkly ashes on them.... anywho. I am taking this back and will get something else.
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Liquid Lip Shine Dusty Rose 549A
BrittyG 2/21/2009 7:42:00 PM
I recently purchased this and one in another shade. The one thing I noticed was that this color did not have the weird smell of the sungold pink color. This color had a slight smell, kind of like a cherry pastry. The color was really pretty on me, and I was happy with it because I had been wanting to try rose colors with my skin tone. This doesn't last super long on the lips, but for 2 dollars I am ok with reapplying!
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Liquid Lip Shine in Sungold Pink
BrittyG 2/21/2009 7:39:00 PM
This color looked great on me, nothing like the foil the rest of you speak of!!! It was sheer, yet shimmery and had good color. The reason I gave it 4 was because it does have a weird smell.... But otherwise, I was really happy with this!
The color on this is GORGEOUS. It's such a pretty dark blue but brightish in different lighting. The only reason it got a 4 was because it chips semi-easily...
What? Why haven't I reviewed this yet? Anywho, I LOVE this e/s. I am pretty pale and like to use this for simple neutral looks. I apply with my finger, weird I know, but it works best this way for me. Stays on all day w/o any primer. Blends easily. A very pretty shadow, highly recommend!
