Cleansers -St. Ives - Make-Up Remover & Facial Cleanser FRESH SKIN
Enchantedd 12/15/2012 9:22:00 PM
The formula smells of flowers and it is really creamy. It takes all of my makeup off and leaves the skin feeling really smooth. It does not take a lot of product to do it either.
Cleansers -Garnier - Nutritioniste Nutri-Pure Daily Exfoliating Gel Cleanser
Enchantedd 12/15/2012 9:19:00 PM
I use this after removing makeup and whenever I feel like I should clean my face. It does such as fantastic job of exfoliating since it has little mircrobeads in it that you scrub into your skin. It also has a nice smell. The formula is a bit strong near the eye area, so be careful when washing around there. Once I rinse it off, my skin feels so smooth and clean. It leaves a refreshed tingly feel on the face, almost like peppermint.
Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences Hydralicious Featherweight shampoo
Enchantedd 12/15/2012 9:14:00 PM
I use this along with the conditioner. It leaves my hair shiny, soft, and smells really good! The only negative thing I have to say about it is that the formula is so thick. The consistency is almost like honey or molasses (which isn't really an issue, just thought I'd mention it). But, it does clean my hair and it does not dry it out. I will continue to use this along with the conditioner.
Conditioner -Clairol - Herbal Essences Hydralicious Featherweight conditioner

I use this along with the shampoo. I have super curly hair, so it helps to de-tangle without weighing my curls down. Plus, it smells so good! It leaves my hair feeling silky smooth and it doesn't dry out. I don't even have to use a lot even though my hair is thick because it works so well. I use this conditioner all of the time.
Styling Products -Garnier - Fructis Style Curl Sculpting Cream-Gel
Enchantedd 12/15/2012 9:02:00 PM
I have super curly hair and this is the only product I use on it to keep them from getting frizzy and dry during the day. I go through so many of these. I comb my hair in the shower so that I can de-tangle it (it has to be soaking wet to comb through), and once I am out, I apply a quarter size amount to my ends since they need moisture the most, then a nickle size amount to the rest of my hair and my scalp. I do this just about everyday since I can't really style my hair unless it is wet first. So this stuff is great! I let my hair air dry and this product takes care f the rest. It doesn't leave my curls crunchy. It leaves them all soft and defined. This is the only product I need for my super curly hair!
Lotions/ Creams -St. Ives - Vitamin E&A Nourishing Hand&Body lotion
Enchantedd 12/15/2012 8:55:00 PM
I use this on my legs after I shave them to make them super soft and to soothe them. I also use this on my hands once they get dry from cold weather. It hydrates the skin very well and makes it very soft.
I use this before I put on any makeup and sometimes before I go to bed. It makes my skin feel really soft and does not dry it out or make it overly greasy. Plus, you get so much product. I have had for awhile now, and I have not even made a dent in it. It has a bit of a flowery scent, but it does not bother me once it has been blended out.
Bronzers -New York Color - Sun 'n' Bronze in Hamptons Radiance
Enchantedd 12/15/2012 8:42:00 PM
Really good bronzer! It gives me just the right amount of color with subtle shimmer and a nice glow. I just take a powder brush and swirl all of the colors around and then brush it all over my face. It is not too powdery. It does not clog my pores or break me out either, which is good since I have sensitive skin. I would buy this again!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Stylish Smokes quad in Amethyst Smokes
Enchantedd 12/15/2012 8:10:00 PM
This was the first eye shadow quad that I purchased. I really like that the instructions are printed in the shadow itself so you know where to put the eye shadow (great for beginners). The main purple color is really pretty and pigmented, as well as the navy blueish color. The white is somewhat chalky with light shimmer, and the black did not show up for me at all. It is really chalky and has chunky glitter in it. I mainly use the purple and navy blue shade in this quad.
I have this is peach kiss. The color is a light peachy coral color and it gives my lips subtle color and shimmer. It soothes my chapped lips and gave them a nice scent. I would like to try out the peppermint and the clear one called "quenched." I have not noticed any improvement to the softness or texture of my lips.
I love this mascara, definitely one of my favorites. It makes my lashes look fuller and longer without having to use false lashes. It also really makes my lashes stand out. I also like the brush and the way it is curved to coat my lashes evenly. I don't use more than one or two coats because it will begin to clump. Also, too many coats will give you the look of spider lashes. But I will buy this again.
Lipstick -New York Color - Ultra Moist Wear Chiffon
Enchantedd 12/15/2012 7:34:00 PM
This is a pale, frosty pink. It is way too sheer on my lips and just gives them a frosty gloss appearance. I will try the other colors in this series, but I will not be repurchasing this color.
Concealers -New York Color - Smooth Skin Liquid Concealer
Enchantedd 12/15/2012 6:16:00 PM
I prefer liquid concealer over the cream and stick ones because they are easier for me to blend out. I have this in light, and it really works well for me! I mainly use it for my dark circles, and it definitely gets the job done. It comes in a tube with an applicator and once the tube gets low, it is difficult to get the remaining product out, so that is probably my only issue with this. It does not have a horrid smell and it blends very well.
Powder -New York Color - Smooth Skin Pressed Powder
Enchantedd 12/15/2012 6:06:00 PM
I meant to purchase this in translucent, but I was not paying attention and bought natural beige instead. I am fair skinned, and this was way too light for me. I would much rather try the translucent one. The powder is smooth and does give a nice soft texture to the skin, but the color was just too light. I really like the packaging though, and it has a really nice mirror. I don't recommend using the powder applicator though, it is so thin and feels so cheaply made. Use a powder brush or different puff to apply it. I will not purchase this in natural beige again, but I will try the the translucent one.
I love this nude lip color! It glides on smoothly, but the formula is kind of dry, so I usually exfoliate and moisturize before applying. I really do not like the packaging because the lipsticks rubs onto the top when you open it. You will also see it since the top is clear. I open mine carefully so this does not happen, but sometimes the top gets stuck, so you have to kind of pull, so you end up with the product on the top anyway. Not a huge mess to clean up, just a bit frustrating. But it is a great color and a great product.
