Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expert Wear Eye Shadow Single: Linen

I like the Maybelline eyeshadows, they come in many pretty colors. They are pretty long lasting, and I don't usually have them crease on me. The only thing I have a problem with is they are a little bit on the expensive side. I think $4 each for an eyeshadow is a little too much, especially when it's only one shade. Sometimes you can find them on sale though. They are still good eyeshadows though, and I like them.
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control
haleyhay 12/31/2008 5:42:00 PM
I really like this scrub, I have very dry skin and this doesn't dry skin out like many other scrubs I have tried before. Even though the scrubbing "chunks" are on the larger side, it is not rough on your skin. It smells nice, and it does a nice job of getting rid of and preventing acne and blackheads.
These are very good nail polishes, they come in very pretty colors. They tend to be pretty sheer, but if you add a couple of coats it becomes more solid. They are extremely cheap and last quite a while, they resist chipping better than many other nail polishes I have tried before.
I like this concealer, I have very dark circles under my eyes and this covers them pretty well. I like that it's thick and not drying. It stays on long too. The only thing I don't like too much is the packaging, the tube it kind of hard to get the product out of, so I put it into a different container, but it's a good concealer.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Shadow [DISCONTINUED]

I like these shadows a lot. Depending on the colors, some are more sheer than others. I have the ivory, purple, teal and the bronzey rose color. All the colors except the rose one go on very very sheer and the rose one is more opaqe than the others. They tend to crease though so you really need a base underneath them. They are most likey very bad for oily lids.
Styling Products -Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Serum

I love the Super Skinny Serum. It's amazing, it makes your hair so soft and shiny. It also helps your hair dry a lot faster than usual. It smells great. The only problem is it's kind of expensive but it lasts so long that it actually does not. It's also really good about keeping frizz and fly aways down. I love it!
I recieved the sample size of this and I don't get the hype it's not that great. It works ok. It makes hair softer but not enough for the price, and for me it doesn't control frizz well. A good thing about it though is that it protects your hair from heat.
Loose Powders -New York Color - loose translucent powder
haleyhay 12/30/2008 12:32:00 AM
I love this powder, it works just as good as anything and it's super cheap. It gives all your make up a polished look. The only thing I don't like about the product is the jar it comes in, the sifter really bothers me. I put it into an old mineral foundation jar instead. But even then the jar isn't so bad.
Eyeliner -New York Color - Eye Liner Pencil in 921A (Black)
haleyhay 12/30/2008 12:29:00 AM
This eyeliner is okay, it's pretty basic. The black isn't that dark though, and it fades really bad, by the end of the day it's almost grey looking.
This is a decent liquid eyeliner, but it's very hard to use because of the brush applicator. It is too long so it tends to slip and go in a different direction. The formula isn't that great either it's not bad, but it does flake off a bit. It's not a horrible eyeliner but it's not great either. It's pretty basic.
I bought the Proactiv system because I sometimes break out and when I do it takes forever for it to clear up. I don't use this product everyday, it's too drying on my skin, but probably wouldn't be on most. I use the scrub every once in a while even when I don't have breakouts just to prevent them. I only use the whole kit every other day when I have break outs. I find that the system is good. The scrub is the best out of all the products. It's kind of expensive though. I wouldn't buy the whole system again, just maybe the scrub, since I don't break out often. But I still think it works really good.
I really like this. It smells light and clean. It also has good staying power for a lotion, especially if you layer the lotion with the body spray. It is also really moisturizing too, I have really dry skin and this moisturizes really well and smells nice. Bottle is really cute too.
Hair Styling Tools -Sedu - Ionic Ceramic Professional Flat Iron (Original)
haleyhay 12/29/2008 10:45:00 PM
I love my Sedu flat iron. It is really good, I have had mine a year and use it a lot. It gets really hot and it heats up really fast. I had a cheap Conair one before that took me 30 minutes to flat iron my hair and with my Sedu it takes around 10 minutes. The only thing I don't like about it is it doesn't have rounded plates, so it is really hard for me to curl my hair with it. It's a really good flat iron and I love it.
This nail polish is really good, it's really cheap too. It doesn't chip much and it comes in so many different colors that are really pretty. The colors range from really bright to ones that are neutral and toned down. They're really good nail polishes.
I love Max Factor 2000 Calorie mascara, it is my favorite. I have kind of sparse, thin lashes and this thickins them up. It lengthens them too. It is pretty cheap, like $3 for a tube, depending on where you get it. I bought it at Wal Mart. The only problem I have is at the end of the day it seems like it flakes a little bit, but not too bad. But that's my only problem with it. Edit: (I gave it 5 stars rather than the original 4) This is now officially officially my favorite holy grail mascara. I had always loved this, but I have a problem. I have commitment issues with beauty products. I am always looking for something else to see if it is better. I have tried around with a couple and just given up because I don't get the same results as I do with this. Love this stuff.
