Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
MaryMarvel 3/19/2013 7:42:00 AM
Best primer ever! There really isn't much to say about this. It does what it promises! All the eye primers I tried were big disappointments. When I got my hands on a sample size of Too Faced Anti-Crease, I didn't have high hopes. But it turned out to be the best thing I ever tried! Creasing shadows no more! <3
It irritates my eyes. I had to throw my tube away, because I can't use it. :/
Lips -Korres - Raspberry Antioxidant Liquid Lipstick (ALL)
MaryMarvel 3/19/2013 7:35:00 AM
I can't stand the taste! It leaves the most horrible taste in my mouth, even when the colour fades off in short time (or when I wipe it away), I can still taste it. Gross... >< Other than the horrible taste, the liquid lipstick tends to move around my lip line and bleed away, forming a bad look. It's super sticky and never settles down, so you will need to check on a mirror often. I don't recommend it at all.
It won't work on me at all. It does make no difference, if I use this base or not. My eyeshadow will still crease in 2-3 hours. It's also too watery and it can get messy in first try.
I have this in mini size and three colours. I love them. The gloss is pretty and delicious looking. It isn't sticky either. Just a bit pricey.
I like this product. It smells so nice with lavender and leaves a fresh feeling on my skin. Applying is a bit messy at first, but I got used to it. Though, I noticed it doesn't deeply cleanses my skin. I still had some BB cream on my face after I rinsed. I guess some make up removal is needed before using this cleanser. The short expire date is a bit stressing, too. I wonder if I can finish it in time. But overall, it's a nice cleanser, while not the best.
I love this a lot. It smells so fresh and yummy. It also moisturises my skin very nicely, without giving a greasy feel or look. Though, it's a little too pricey for this amount. But I am planning to re-purchase, once I finish mine. :)
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Rosebud Salve

I love this. It softens my lips and hands just right. Though, it gives a greasy feeling to my hands. (It's better to use this before bed.) The scent is so light and nice. I am very sensitive for scents in general and this product is amazing about that. It never disturbs me.
Lip Gloss -The Body Shop - born lippy - strawberry
MaryMarvel 2/19/2013 5:33:00 AM
It's an okay lip balm. The taste is a bit too strong, but I used it under my lipstick most of the times. When wearing alone, it doesn't last for long and it dries my lips a bit. Not a very good lip balm. I wouldn't purchase it again.
This was a big disappointment for me. After reading so many good reviews on Sugarpill eyeshadows, I decided to buy Tako. (along with Acidberry) The price is way too expensive for a single shadow. Tako is very chalky and it can be experienced in any other cheap shadow. What disappointed me the most is how easy it falls in only two hours. With or without an eye primer, it just won't stay. It always creases and falls down to my lashes. I honestly can't see what people see in Sugarpill. This was a big waste of money. :(
A lot of people seem to like this product, but I'm not one of them. I used this in Pearl and it dried my eyelids. The colour never applied evenly, there were lighter and darker areas, no matter how I tried. While applying, it kept smearing to my lashes and I couldn't take it off. And it fails to do it's job. Even when using this primer, my shadows still creased and fell. This was a big disappointment for me. Not going to re-purchase.
I have been using this since a year and I LOVE it. So Much. haha! I am a nail polish obsessed person and Seche Vite made my life so much easier. It gives a nice glossy effect and seals the polish for a better durability. It makes some colours pop and look even better. I don't even need to mention about how fast it dries. I always had issues with getting my nails dry properly. Even when I thought they were dry, I still had marks and incidents happen. But Seche solved that problem just right! On another note, I have tried some other brand fast drying top coats, but they are not satisfying after Seche. This product is the best!
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Moringa Body Butter
MaryMarvel 2/6/2013 7:10:00 AM
I love Body Shop's strawberry series. After finishing two strawberry body butters, I decided to try Moringa since so many people made a lot of positive comments about the scent. Yet... Having a very sensitive nose, I really disliked the smell so much. >< It's just too heavy for me to handle. I admit the Moringa body butter had a nicer texture than Strawberry. It is more creamy and nicer. But the scent... Gah! I can't tolerate it. D:
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
MaryMarvel 2/6/2013 6:48:00 AM
I first tried it in travel size which came with 3 step skin care set. It didn't seem to work for me at first, while my skin was too dry and peeling off due to bad weather. It didn't feel like enough. But after keeping on using it, I really ended up loving this. The lotion gets absorbed into my skin perfectly without leaving a greasy feel. I also love the fact it is scent-free. I can't stand a lot of scents, especially when I need to apply it all over my face. (That's why I really love Clinique!) After finishing the travel size, I ended up getting the biggest size of this lotion which has a pump on top. It's really a great package. All I need is two squeezes and it's all clear and tidy. <3 I finished that aswell. Now I'm trying another facial moisturiser from Body Shop (because I wanted to finish it before purchasing another), but I am missing my DDML dearly. ;_;
I quite enjoy this lipgloss. It gives a very nice colour to my lips, which suits me. It looks natural and delicious! I love the wand and it works good. (You know how some gloss wands are difficult to work with.) I also love the fact it is odour-free. I really dislike glosses with heavy scent/taste. Being a gloss, it won't stay on for long. But it doesn't vanish away too fast either. I
