Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Pert Plus 2 in 1 Shampoo + Deep Condtioner

I'm mixed race (latina, black, and white) and my hair is extremely curly & frizz prone (straightens easily though). I've spent a ton of money on expensive products (mixed chicks & carols daughter, aveda). My aunt had this in the shower & i tried it. then i used my mixed chicks leave in conditioner. i got the same beautiful results as i did with the high end products. my hair was super curly and frizz free! not bulky at all just laid nicely. this was so cheap too i forget the exact price but under $5! i'm on my second bottle.
Concealers -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

This is amazing! $6 and some change at target (dollar more at walgreens). This is nice and fluffy/thick consistency. Works wonders for my tired eyes (horrid dark circles). Used this after 3 hrs of sleep (toddler was up all night) and look so refreshed. completely covered a blemish on my cheek (my covergirl liquid concealer never fully covered the way i liked.) this is great. a little goes a long way. Beige is perfect for my medium-tan skin. highly recommend. definitely a cheap wonder product *I've done through 2 jars of this, and I just saw where this has been discontinued! I'm about to have a panic attack because I swear by this. This is the only thing that covers the reddest of the blemishes and darkest of circles!*
Got this in gold chrome! i NEVER paint my nails cause i usually mess up on the right hand and it takes forever to get it perfectly! & nail polish STINKS. this stuff didn't stink went on smoothly like a dream! dries super quick! amazing stuff $5 at walgreens. i would repurchase in a heart beat. It's about time i did something with my nails!
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen

I'm not a nail person, but this stuff was $5 at walgreens! AMAZING! i can never get my right hand painted nicely (im a righty) with regular polish. it's always messy. This stuff doesn't stink like regular polish goes on so easily and quickly. 5 minute mani! hell yeah! i love this stuff. dries super quickly! easy touch ups on the go. didn't streak at all.
I love how soft it is, but it's TOO soft for blush application in my opinion. My blush didn't go on as smooth with this than it did with my Studio 35 brush. I was able to better judge how much blush I was picking up and it blended better for me. This is still a great deal. I LOVED the Ecotools bamboo powder brush. Wouldn't repurchase this one though
Amazing for applying loose powders. Did a great job with my Mac magically cool liquid powder in Cajun. Love how super soft it feels. Great price $7.99 from Walgreens. Great deal. *Been using this for a week and it's so amazing. Does a perfect job with the Mac magically cool liquid powder. So Soft. You can't find a softer brush at this price! A great product & a steal!*
Very bright pink but gives a gorgeous flush. Super creamy (creamier than the other cheek stains). Lasted all day when I wore it. Haven't had another occasion to wear it again though.
Eye Shadow -Smashbox - Smashbox Flamingo eyeshadow
beautifuldreamer324 10/21/2010 12:51:00 PM
I'm glad I ordered this! I'm in LOVE with this color. It's so flattering on my medium tan skintone.VERY pigmented. I gave this 4/5 on the price because I've returned a MAC shadow for being so small & this is pretty tiny itself, but a little goes a long way. It's well worth it. I can't say enough good things about the pigmentation of this shadow. My first Smashbox product. I'm impressed
Lady Gaga I LOVE YOU! & I Love This LipGlass! LOL I got this to go with my Gaga Lipstick that I've had since it came out. Such a pretty Barbie pink. This looks great over the lipstick. Gives it more pigment.
I have heard great things about this gloss and was excited to received my sample, but it's SUPER sticky on the lips. I don't know if the samples are different than the full bottles, but this was awful consistency. It looks nice on the lips though and is moisturizing, but I'd never in a million years pay $17 for this gloss. Covergirl glosses are better than this. *edit - Day 2- I used this today over my lipstick & it didn't feel as sticky as it did yesterday for some reason. It gives a nice glossy sheen that I don't seem in most lip glosses. My lips looked super shiny like you could almost see yourself in them. I am adding a lippie because I do like the shine that this gives. Looks really nice over lipstick. I'm giving 4 out of 5 because $17 is just insane for a clear gloss in my opinion.
Just received this today in the mail and I'm in LOVE. The glitter is not very noticable at all (I've heard complaints about the glitter. It comes off when you put it on.) This has a nice shimmer and a very pretty flattery peachy pink shade. I think this can flatter any skintone. Beautiful blush. Money well spent. *THE DESCRIPTION ON SEPHORA'S WEBSITE CLEARLY STATES THIS IS A PEACHY PINK WITH GOLD GLITTER -- SO IF YOU DON'T WANT GLITTER THEN DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT. GET THE REGULAR ORGASM BLUSH. DONT COMPLAIN ABOUT THE GLITTER WHEN IT CLEARLY STATES THERE IS GLITTER IN THIS.* I've been wearing this alot lately and I love it. Super pigmented. One stroke on the cheeks is enough for daytime wear.
Just received a sample of this from Sephora. (delux samples are tiny!) This is very shimmery which I love (I love shimmer and glitter), but as for color, it doesn't really show up on my medium-tan skintone. The shimmer shows but that's it. I thought it would be more pigmented because of the color in the bottom. I will definitely use the free sample up, but I wouldn't pay full price for this. I gave it 3 Lippies cause it's a nice illuminator but pretty average. *Edit- this is more like a shimmery moisurizer - it gives great moisture. I've been using this and I'm LOVING it. It's very moisturizing on my dry skin and gives a pretty glow! I will purchase after my sample is done
Loose Powders -MAC - Magically Cool Liquid Powder - Cajun
beautifuldreamer324 10/17/2010 9:59:00 PM
Beautiful. Feels cool on the skin. I am still looking for a better brush to use with it. I still want to try truth & light. *Update: Cajun adds color to my face giving the look of a Bronzer. I like the way it feels on the skin...nice and cool when applied and doesn't feel like you're wearing anything once it's on. However, it's hard to tell how much you have on because you can't feel it and because of the "magic" texture, so it takes awhile to get used to. update 11/6/11- seriously love this product. just started using it again. i use this to set my MUFE Face & Body or my tinted moisturizers/light foundations. i like how this looks more natural than a traditional setting powder. gives a natural, glowy finish and feels very light on the skin.
Love it! Just returned makeup from venomous villains that I didnt like and got this pigment along with some other great stuff. Color is gorgeous! The price is kind of high for me, but I got it with my store credit. The color is so beautiful and you get a good bit of pigment. It's worth it. This is a must have. Another color I want it kitchamas.
