Powder -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder - Sandstorm
Haruhi13 5/6/2013 2:51:00 PM
THis powder is amazing! It's only $3.99, which is super cheap, and it smells really nice. The powder itself doesn't have much color, but it works beautifully to eliminate shine throughout the day and sets foundation and concealer perfectly. Basically, there's no reason not to buy this!
This does literally nothing for my hair. Literally. Nothing. My hair is exactly the same before and after applying this stuff (and I've tried it on damp hair, wet hair, and dry hair in the hope that it would somehow work). It also smells awful, and plastic-y and just disgusting. And, of course, the smell stays on your hair for hours. I was really sad, because everyone else seems to like this so much!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo rich mahogany

The formula is fantastic, although it dries quickly so you have to blend fast. It doesn't crease at all, and it wears forever. However, I'm sad to say I'm not a huge fan of this particular color. It's a dull, dark brown that I find particularly unappealing.
Foundations -Maybelline - Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation
Haruhi13 1/9/2013 2:18:00 PM
This is awful. It's wet, oily, hard to blend and very orange. Cute gimmick, but don't fall for it.
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream
Haruhi13 1/9/2013 2:16:00 PM
BB cream? Sadly, no. If you have ever tried a proper Korean BB cream, then you will be dreadfully disappointed in this. However, it is absolutely the best tinted moisturizer I have ever used. It's just divine- it has a small amount of coverage, just enough to make your skin look even, smooth and glowy, and it adjusts (within reason) to your skin tone without oxidizing. The texture is a little on the thin side, which can be annoying when you're squeezing it out, but that makes it easier to blend. It's available in five shades, and with the slight sheerness I think that everyone will be able to find a color that suits them. The undertones are neither too pink or too yellow, so it's almost universal. Shades: Light, Light/Medium, Medium, Medium/Deep, Deep Price: $7.44 at Target Packaging: Small but sleek white tube, with a gradient of the product color and bubbly pink and white text. Verdict: This beats every foundation/tinted moisturizer I've ever tried, since I'm not concerned with coverage. Definitely my HG and I will repurchase.
I have the shade Plumped Up Pink, which I believe is LED. It's lovely and sheer but fairly buildable, and I love that the formula isn't drying. It's actually quite moisturizing when layered over a thin layer of lip balm. And of course, the crayon-style applicator is not only fun and completely adorable, but also super convenient. The only thing I would change about the Chubby Sticks is their slight lack of pigmentation. Overall, everyone should have at least one of these!
Hair Styling Tools -Remington - T-Studio Pearl Curling Wand
Haruhi13 1/9/2013 1:43:00 PM
This works beautifully. It's much easier to use than a curling iron and it's easier to manipulate the degree of wave or curl you want in your hair. Personally, I love bouncy and defined curls, and that's easily achievable with either size of this wand. My hair is frizzy and uncooperative, so the fact that I can curl my entire head in about 5 minutes is a blessing. It's relatively inexpensive as well. Quite frankly, I think it definitely stood up to the hype.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Strawberry Sorbet
Haruhi13 1/9/2013 1:38:00 PM
I love the shape, of course! It's quite cute and fun to apply. The strawberry scent is lovely as well. However, it's not the most moisturizing lip balm I've ever tried, and it doesn't last quite as long as I'd like on my constantly dry lips. But because these little spheres are inexpensive, ridiculously adorable and strangely addictive, I'm probably going to collect more of them.
This is officially my HG concealer! It blends beautifully and completely covers my dark circles, which are fairly dark. There's really nothing I would change about this product, and I'll definitely be purchasing another when my current container runs out.
Concealers -Maybelline - Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in Ivory
Haruhi13 1/9/2013 1:30:00 PM
Be warned that this runs very, very light. Also, this product is for brightening- you'll have to look somewhere else if you want coverage. I like the idea of the applicator, but the amount of product in this is truly miniscule. Overall? You'll probably have better luck with the FitMe concealer.
Shampoo -Suave - Professionals Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo
Haruhi13 1/9/2013 1:19:00 PM
Ugh. It made my hair oilier! Not a good product at ALL. And it smells awful.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - Forever Florals-Gardenia Body Lotion
Haruhi13 9/14/2012 12:20:00 AM
I love this lotion- it reminds me of Hawaii. :) It smells exactly like an actual gardenia, and the scent isn't overpowering but it lingers, sometimes I can still smell it on my clothing the next day. (I like layering it with the Gardenia Cologne). It's quite moisturizing as well, though not quite enough for elbows/knees. I have the plumeria, coconut and mango lotions as well, and they're all just divine!
Concealers -Shiseido - Natural Finish Cream Concealer
Haruhi13 9/14/2012 12:15:00 AM
I love this beyond belief. It has such a perfect matte finish that blends into my skin perfectly! My dark circles are completely gone when I use this. It's super creamy and blends really well. I'm not Asian, but the second shade doesn't look yellow at all on my skin.
It wears like a sheer lipstick, really. Contrary to the color on the package (and the name 'rhubarb'), Rhubarb is a pretty warm reddish pink with a hint of shimmer. It's minty and will make your lips tingle pleasantly! :) It's not as moisturizing as I like, though, so I do layer it with Lipsyl. Combined, they give adequate moisturization.
It's such a beautiful, sheer, my-lips-but-better kind of color! It really glides on, and it's quite moisturizing. I've given up wearing lipstick because this tinted balm looks so polished and pretty!
