I have this corrector in light bisque.It is a very light pink color.I apply this to my dark circles before foundation and then again after foundation as I have serious dark circles.I apply light amounts,as if I apply to much my under eyes can look a bit to pinky and cakey and it looks unnatural. I apply my MAC studio finish concealer in nw20 on top. I am very happy with this. I finally found a method that works best for me. Now the method I use doesn't cover the circles completely but nothing ever will and I'm learning to accept that.This neutralizes the purple/blue in my under eye circles and adds some coverage.It has a creamy texture but not so creamy that its greasy. I could never leave the house with just this on though as its to pink. I originally tried this in light peach and really did not like it but I now see it was due to the wrong color match.So getting matched with the right color really makes a difference.I will absolutely keep going back to this.
I really like this cream blush.When I first went into MAC and the makeup artist showed this to me I was a little taken aback as the color looks so bright, but once on the color is very natural.It is still more of a brighter color but not clown looking.I apply about 2 layers with my fingers.The color is more on the sheer side.It helps perk up my complexion on days when I look very tired.The color doesn't last me all day,but it does last a few hours.Maybe if set with powder it will last all day but I usually don't use powder.Touch ups aren't a problem though as this fits great in my purse and I just dab my finger in and apply.Perfect for those with dry skin.It doesn't accentuate flakes like a powder would.For reference in MAC I am a NC20/25, I cant remember as I don't use mac foundation anymore.I have more neutral undertones though and this suits me just fine.Overall this is a great product and the color is beautiful.
Conditioner -Dove - Damage Therapy Conditioner Intensive Repair

I love this conditioner.Its amazing!I have fine,dry/damaged hair and this conditioner gets my hair so smooth and silky without weighing it down and with no buildup.My hair truly feels amazing after using this.When first rinsing it out of the shower,my hair felt so silky I kept rinsing and rinsing assuming conditioner must still be in my hair but nope!This conditioner is just that good.I highly recommend this if you have dry/damaged hair.I love this stuff I wish I tried it sooner.I will absolutely repurchase:)Plus this smells amazing and the smell lingers all day long.
Conditioner -Neutrogena - Triple Moisture daily deep conditioner
goldenpeach86 9/22/2012 11:23:00 PM
What a huge disappointment this was. I love the triple moisture mask and was actually looking to purchase more of that but my store was all out so I went with this. I figured it was basically the same thing and I love the mask so much so I thought I was good to go.This is not even close to being as good as the mask.The only good thing that's the same is the scent.This did not moisturize my hair at all.When rinsing it out my hair felt very dry and tangled,like I didn't even use conditioner.I even tried leaving it on like a mask and putting blobs of it in but it still did not moisturize.It actually made my hair feel even drier then it originally was.Now my ends are dry due to coloring and some heat styling so I really need moisture.I stopped using this and will probably just end up throwing it out.Would not repurchase.
This is a very beautiful nail color.Like other reviewers have stated the color is a milky white/slightly peach tone.Its sheer but I apply multiple coats for a more noticeable look.I think the color is just perfect.I love neutral nail tones especially because when your polish starts to chip it's not as noticeable.I useually start seeing chips the 3rd day after I painted them, not on all my nails but some.Touching them up though is easy, when I add new polish over the old it still looks great.I got this at rite aid for $1.50 I believe.Now that's a great price for such a great polish.This is going to be my go to color.
I have been using this cleanser for normal to dry skin along with the moisturizer for years.It fits perfectly with my acne routine as this is so gentle and doesn't irritate my skin.Now this doesn't totally remove my makeup which kinda stinks all the more so because I'm acne prone.No cleanser gets rid of all my makeup as I wear allot of mascara and liner so I use coconut oil as my eye makeup remover and cleanse with this.If I have allot of face makeup on I cleanse twice with this but it's so gentle that its not a problem.So for the most part it cleanses well, never leaves residue, and doesn't dry skin out.Im a fan and will always go back to Cetaphil:)
I have been using this moisturizer for years.It was recommended by my dermatologist when I was prescribed retin-a.I never had any problems with this and it will always be my go to moisturizer.Its light weight, non greasy, non sticky, and actually pretty hydrating. My skin is combination but I have allot of flakey dry spots from the retin-a & this does not totally smooth out the patches and make me flake free, but Ive never come across a moisturizer that has.I understand that with retin-a being dry comes with it.My skin is also sensitive and this does not irritate it.Never caused any burning or stinging.Its very gentle.So if your looking for miracles this isn't for you but, if you want a simple gentle moisturizer I would highly recommend.
I love the texture of this eyeshadow.It feels so cool I deff want to repurchase more colors.Anyways this is my first one of these eyeshadows I got in a sephora kit.The color is a silvery/gray with shimmer.I use my finger to apply this.When first applying the color is sheer but very buildable which is great cause I like it more smokey for night time.Has good staying power so it last threw the night.
Highlighters -Stila - All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer - 6 - Peach
goldenpeach86 8/11/2012 2:25:00 PM
I love this highlighter.I own a few different highlighters but this one is my go to.I love the color.Its a beautiful pink with gold glitter.It really has a brightening effect on my skin.I love the brush applicator this comes with.Sometimes I just apply straight with that brush or I apply to my hand and just use my fingers to apply.I don't use this all the time so I've had it for a few years and I'm still not even close to being empty.When I do run out I will deff repurchase.I like to use this mainly on my cheekbones but sometimes I like to apply on the tip of my nose and on my cupids bow.
This has been my go to under eye concealer for years.It is the only thing that covers up my circles for the most part.Liquid concealers just aren't enough coverage for me so I love concealers in pots.This is a dry matte formula which I like cause I don't want shiny under eyes.The pot last forever so it's well worth the price.This does not look cakey on me or unnatural looking.I have this in nw20.Yes it does crease but honestly every concealer I have tried creases and id rather deal with touching up a few creases here and there then being embarrassed by my super dark circles.I love this and will continue to buy when it runs out.
Eyeliner -Stila - Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
goldenpeach86 8/10/2012 8:52:00 PM
I wanted a felt tip liner & decided to go with this.I was using WnW mega liquid liner which I loved but I couldn't stand the goopy formula anymore.It would get into my lashes & harden making mascara application very difficult.Anyways, I got this in intense black and I really like it.The formula is really black and it's pretty easy to apply.I like that it's not messy but it does dry quickly so if it does get in my lashes it kind of hardens in them but not bad and my mascara still goes on with ease.So that's the only negative for me.It doesn't leak or smudge in the inner corner area which is nice.This does have strong staying power so if you make a mistake make sure you got makeup remover & qtips at hand.
I am so happy I got these wipes as a gift otherwise I probably would have never tried them & I would never know how wonderful these are.They are very gentle on my sensitive skin & they get rid of just about all my makeup & that is great because I wear allot of eyeliner & mascara so nothing ever seems to take every trace off but this does get rid of most of it.The main reason I love these though is because there so moisturizing.I have dry skin with allot of flaky spots due to my acne medicine.Nothing gets rid of my flakes except a professional facial (lol)& these.When I use these at night I don't even need to moisturize after.If I use them in the morning I will apply moisturizer just to make my skin extra smooth for makeup.These haven't broken me out either so even better.At 12$ they are a bit more then your drugstore wipe but so worth it for me.I will deff repurchase
I finally found it.My HG mascara.I have tried lots of mascaras and ended up being disappointed,not impressed, or liking it just to later be disappointed by some problem.Not with this though.This is everything I have wanted in a mascara.Its super black & makes my lashes so long it looks like I have falsies on.I love the brush it comes with.Im able to wiggle it right at the root making my lashes look even thicker.Sometimes this mascara can look a little clumpy but I just simply comb my lashes with my eyelash comb and perfect:) There is no smudging or flaking with this.I have a mascara obsession so I probably will still continue to try others but I have found my go to.I have found true love.
I have hereditary dark circles.I have thin skin to begin with and the skin is even thinner around my eyes,so my veins and discoloration is very noticeable.So after seeing the great reviews for this, I had to try it.I started using this in October 2011 and see no difference what so ever in my dark circles.My circles haven't lightened even the slightest.When I first started using this I used it everyday which seemed to be a bit much for me because my eye area was becoming dry and flaky,so I started using it every other day which is much more tolerated by my skin.Now I am in my young 20's & don't have any wrinkles so I can't comment if it does help for that, but after about a month of using this I noticed my eye area has become softer.I like that this has retinol in it so I'm hoping it helps prevent wrinkles from coming in.Ive been told that eye creams will not lighten genetic circles but I still have hope maybe something will come out that works.Maybe it will work for you if your circles aren't hereditary or super dark.Its worth giving a try.Even though it did nothing for darkness(which is why I purchased this)I like the smooth feel it gives.So the smooth feeling & possiable anti aging benefits,I might get this again.Make sure to only apply this at night & only a tiny bit, I noticed to much eye cream at night can cause puffiness.
Conditioner -Neutrogena - triple moisture deep recovery hair mask
goldenpeach86 6/26/2012 7:21:00 PM
This stuff is incredible.I am always out trying new conditioners but always end up going back to this one.I first tried this product a few years ago.I had dyed my hair black and got it stripped.My mother picked this up for me at the drugstore as she knew my hair would be a mess and needed something very moisturizing.The first time I washed my hair after getting it stripped,was pretty awful.My hair felt like straw and was crunchy it was disgusting.I applied this conditioner, left it on for 3 minutes and once I rinsed my goodness the difference!I was amazed.My hair was so silky and shiny.It helped with my tangles too.I give this conditioner full credit for getting my hair back to normal after stripping it.Even though my hair is healthier now I still color and use heat so I do need moisture and this conditioner always leaves my hair feeling soft.It has never left residue or faded my color.Plus the smell!It smells amazing.I washed my hair last night and I can still smell the conditioner now.Even though I may bounce around allot from conditioner to conditioner I always end up going right back to this one.If you have very dry damaged hair this is something you must try:)
