Lip Gloss -Bon Bons - flavored lip juicer- -all flavors
VegetaFanGirl 2/26/2012 7:03:00 PM
Bon Bons are a classic in Walmart bins everywhere. I buy these all the time, even though they aren't really my favorite. These do match up to many lipglosses I've owned, but they still are a little bit sticky to me, especially if I get caught in the wind. I like the taste of them and the way they look on my lips, and one tube lasts forever. However, they're still just lipglosses. :/
I have a Summer Sheers lip gloss in Sheer Royalty. It is a gorgeous, sparkly lavender purple but is mostly clear. I love this shade!! It looks stunning in the packaging and is just like most other Avon lipglosses with consistency (kinda sticky but a good thickness). My favorite part: it smells and tastes like fresh cucumber!! These can be found in the $1 bin of any Avon stand.
Very flattering lip product! You do need to reapply kinda often, but it is worth it. Very beautiful, shimmery colors which look amazing in the summertime and especially on holidays! I find these in the Avon $1 bin, and I love that I never know what color it is until I open them. I'd recommend these if you want to build up a nice lipcolor collection. They are great pigmentation, too. My only problem is that they are somewhat sticky in the wind, but aren't all lipglosses?
Nothing too special about this type of lipgloss. I love Avon's lipglosses for the fact that they are not sticky at all and are really nice when it comes to selection and flavor. These aren't really anything new, but they're still nice to stumble upon at the Avon stand.
Not one of my preferences. I got it as a gift from my lip-gloss obsessed friend. Very thick and moderately sticky in consistency, which I do not like. The color's nice and it smells good, but it tastes pretty bad. Plus, it says it's a lip treatment, but it does nothing for your lips to actually treat them. It looks pretty, but it's a pain for a lip gloss.
I love Bodycology's creams, so when I got a few I also got a lip gloss with them. It was a little keychain one. I really like it, as I do with most of my lipglosses. It isn't sticky at all, is a bit liquidy in consistency. There are little sparkles, so if you don't mind them, they'll add a nice touch.
Definetely a great buy! I originally bought these as little party favors for my birthday party, and I ended up keeping more than half of them! haha. They are not sticky, they're slick. The shine is great on these lipglosses. They are not very colored or pigmented, but the shine makes up for it. Also, these are kind of thick, which isn't my thing because I have full lips. They are very cheap though, cheapest in all of Ulta.
Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Slicks Lip Gloss - Sun Glaze

*EDIT* I now got a chance to use this lipgloss even more than I previously had, and I am sorry to say that I had to bump it down to two stars. The color is not so great on my skin tone. I look very pale and washed out in this lipgloss, whether I am pale in the winter or tanned in the summer. In the summer, it just makes me look like Snooki. That's just wrong. It also dries quickly. Plus, the consistency is so awkward- it's super thick and does not spread easily on your lips. I actually have to put effort in smacking my lips! The good part is that it's not sticky and that it's cheap.
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - WetSlicks Lip Gloss - ShimmerShell
VegetaFanGirl 2/26/2012 5:44:00 PM
EDIT: I gave this lipgloss a decent review at first, but can I just say that I absolutely LOVE it now? Amazing lipgloss this is. It is not sticky, smells amazing, looks amazing (it really does give a "wet" look), and a wonderful selection of colors. It has a nice consistency- a little on the wet side but that's what makes it work. ShimmerShell shows up very lightly on my lips, as more of a coat of shimmer. It is a great nude lipcolor. It stays on okay for a while and resists drying up for a while, too. It was also super cheap, so that's what made it great! Amazing lipgloss for an amazing price. LOVE it!
Very nice blotting sheets- I always used expensive versions of blotting paper, but when I found these, I knew they were gonna work good. It claims it "absorbs oil and shine" (yes), "mattifies shiny skin" (sure) "pore minimizer" (no but who cares), "eliminates shine and keeps skin matte for hours" (yup) "retexturize skin and masks facial imperfections" (dude, they're blotting sheets, not a miracle foundation!!). I don't like the smell, but it really doesn't matter. It does mattify the areas that you use it on, and it generally is a very nice product which is very handy. The small packaging makes it great for on-the-go; I always take this when I travel and use it during a flight. The $1 price is super awesome, but the cardboard packaging is not very durable.
Concealers -Maybelline - Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer
VegetaFanGirl 2/26/2012 5:27:00 PM
This is the only concealer I know of that totally matches my skin. The shade "Fair" is the one for me, totally! This product is good on coverage, but should not be used alone. It may have Mineral Power, but not staying power. If you have oily skin, it comes off really easily. It works best when used under foundation or on top of another concealer. This concealer is in a tube and comes with a wand applicator. One little tube can last me a very long time! Pretty good price, too, only $5! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great feeling concealer.
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Endless Lipstick - in the buff
VegetaFanGirl 2/26/2012 4:44:00 PM
This lipstick is not good. I tried to love it, I really have, but when I bought it, it did not do its thing. When I opened it, it was super dry. It didn't even go onto my lips- kinda like a gluestick that is nearing the end of its life. Plus, the color looked super weird on my skin. It didn't look natural and was dirty-looking. Within three uses, it broke from the bottom!! It also smells like something from the late 90's, aka your mother's lipstick. I love the packaging, but I have no idea what happened to the product. I read such good reviews on it, but this is not a good lipstick! Nothing to rave over at all.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Stylish Smokes in Natural Smokes
VegetaFanGirl 2/22/2012 8:10:00 PM
Awesome product! I've been a lifelong Maybelline fan and I was definetely not disappointed about this. When used correctly and with a primer, these eyeshadows give you incredible color and longetivity. I wear all my eyeshadows from 5:30 am to 10 pm and my entire look hadn;t even creased one bit!! I am so amazed at the wearability of these shadows, I can use all of them at once and it still looks appropriate for the day! The price is good for a quad as well. The quality here can match Urban Decay.
Mascara -New York Color - Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara
VegetaFanGirl 2/22/2012 8:00:00 PM
I have been legitimately interested in buying a mascara for $1.72 for a long time, and I have been keeping an eye on this one. The price is obviously incredible. Anybody can afford this! As for the actual performance, I did not agree that this made my lashes reach the sky at all- it did a poor defining job. This should be renamed a "barely-there" lengthening mascara, because it got hardly any product on my lashes to even look like there was a difference. It flakes a lot, and even though it doesn't smudge, it doesn't stay on for very long. The formula is rather dry, so it won't have a super long shelf life. I hate to be the party pooper here, and especially that everyone has been saying that NYC is starting to come out with good mascaras now. I ust don't like this one- I'll try another one and see how it goes.
I like this foundation. It blends pretty well, covers VERY nicely, and gives me a completely covered look- something I have been looking for for a while. However, you can easily get cakey face with this product, since it's full coverage. Don't even THINK about using powder with this foundation! Also, the colors are deceiving. They look deathly pale in their bottles, but they are much darker. I did buy 200 Nude but it is awkwardly darker than my skin tone- something I was surprised at. And also, it doesn't stay for a full 16 hours. I do end up rubbing some of it off during the day. Honestly, the consistency of it is awkwardly thick. It feels like you're wearing a mask. If you wanna look younger, this is not the foundation you should use! It does stay well on the oily areas, I do give it kudos for that. It is also good for its money, at only $10. It gives you a good run for its money.
