I have bought this in the original and waterproof and HATE them both! I just do not like this mascara!!!! I have long lashes naturally so, I usually try to go for volume not length. This mascara just made my lashes look spidery. YUCK!
This actually gave me little red bumps after application! I washed and then put on a layer of Sudocrem overnight then went back to using Mitchum Antiperspirant & Deodorant For Women.
Palettes -Unlisted Brand - BH Cosmetics - 120 Color Palette 1st Edition
tawnyinthepink 4/10/2009 5:19:00 PM
I bought this because I wanted to know what everyone was talking about with these 120 palettes. I happen to really like this palette. I've read a few people stating that there is fall-out. Well, you cannot completely eliminate the fall-out...but you can lessen it. Depending on what you are using the shadows for (i.e. eyeshadow vs. eyeliner)...yes this palette can be used for both! :) That's a bonus. Now then, depending on how proficient you are in make-up...there are various applications that can be used when combining bases and these shadows. To state all the variants would take too long, but I will suffice it to say that this can be done from the most basic applications to those used buy professionals. Thus making this a nice palette. It is NOT professional quality. But if you are just starting it is a nice starter to get an idea how to blend and what to blend without spending too much for experimentation purposes.
I bought the C.O. Bigelow Cinnamint Mentha Lip Shine ($7.50). For the amount I spent on the gloss...I expected more. I think I would definitely buy again, but not without some thought.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation
tawnyinthepink 4/10/2009 4:02:00 PM
HATE this foundation!!!!! I don't say that about many products, but when I'm told that I look older wearing this than I do without any make-up on...that says something! Also it broke me out horribly! This foundation is supposed to be amazing...but for my skin it just doesn't work. I have combination (oily T-zone) skin. I don't have sensitive skin, but with this I felt my skin tingle to an eventual slight burning sensation (as the day wore on).
Makeup Brushes -MAC - 188 Small Duo Fibre Face brush

I have both the MAC 187 & 188. Unlike many people I am not in love with my MAC 187 brush! It's a bit too big for certain applications. Which is why I bought the MAC 188. I love using this with the MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 foundation. It makes the application and blending of this particular foundation a breeze.
Hair Color -Clairol - Nice 'n Easy - Root Touch Up
tawnyinthepink 4/10/2009 3:43:00 PM
I die my hair dark brown because I love darker hues. I tried this because I was thinking that it would be nice to just touch up my lighter roots without bothering with the rest of the length. Well, this product did a fine enough job...but I was a little unhappy with the application. It may be that I am just used to the standard bottle and not so much this comb thingy...
Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

I have tried many different kinds of blotting papers and these are among one of my favorites. They are very difficult to handle because of the "plastic like" material. You kind of have to wrap them around your fingers to hold them or they flap around. I agree you MUST try using a blotting paper if you have oily skin-you'll be hooked. But my favorite is Bath and Body works. They are a really good price, and they dispense one at a time.
I hate the smell of this! I so wanted to love this...but unfortunately cannot! It's just too fruity/girly. I try new products because I love the adventure...this was one that does not work for me at all!
This is not a shampoo, but a treatment Got 2b Cosmic Shimmering Serum 4 oz (112 g). Use this after any shampoo/conditioner and your hair will be amazing! Now then as to a shampoo/conditioner that would help you, (as a prof.) I recommend Ojon hair products. I have to buy these myself, so I am not a representative of the company. That tells you allot due to the fact I work with other products on a daily basis! These will do the best for your hair. They are a bit expensive, but well worth it for the results that you will achieve.
It's not that I don't like this, it's just that I've tried better. The brand itself says it is: A trendy, quality cosmetic line by Kanebo for a chic, stylish look. As its slogan suggests, there are no rules on how to use Kate cosmetics. All the colors are created for anyone who dares to experiment! Wearable everyday color and funky, vivid colors ready for you to take home. Whether you are attending a party, wedding or simply going to the office, Kate has everything you need to look your trendsetting best! There are other options that I've used that are much more multitasking and thus thoroughly worth the money!
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17
tawnyinthepink 3/30/2009 3:18:00 AM
I HATE THIS! Okay, I'm a light olive complected lady and none of the colors in this line match! There are better products both more and less expensive that match better to various skin colors than this!
I do like this concealer! I happen to have severe under eye (dark) circles that when traveling become insanely noticeable. This concealer happens to truly help to cover these spots and also makes my under eye seem less noticeable upon first inspection. For me, in my line of work, that is very important!
My hands get really dry since I am an avid 'washer'...as they say cleanliness is next to godliness...well while I'm not sure about that....I am sure that my hands are always well tended! :) This being said, I do highly recommend this treatment! My hands always feel nice and soft, which is important when greeting clients all day!
Crème -La Mer - The Treatment Creme Foundation SPF 15
tawnyinthepink 3/30/2009 2:55:00 AM
I really do like this foundation! I have bought this many times and continue to keep it around. While I will admit this isn't the first item I pick up, when my skin feels particularly parched, I will tend to go directly for this with no hesitation. It is a good moisturizing foundation that should be in every woman's arsenal for those occasions when it's needed. There's nothing worse than needing a product and not having it!
