Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Chocomania Body Butter

I LOVE the smell, but there is a huge problem with this product for me. It tastes terrible! I have never had a lotion taste so bad. The taste lasted all day, on my arms on my hands, even after I washed them. I will buy the body scrub again and possibly the shower gel, but not the lotion, I cannot handle the taste.
The best way to use this is by mixing it with foundation and put it all over your face, and then to dot it on your cheeks and nose and such. I wouldn't rub it in because it could rub off the rest of your makeup, I would pat it on top as a finishing touch. Don't use too much though! I tried this today and my skin glowed!
Powder -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Medium [DISCONTINUED]

The beauty girl at the MAC counter reccomended this to me when I told her I was looking for something to help with shininess on my face during the day. I actually have this in medium plus which matches my skin well and it also has a nice, soft texture. I put this on every morning and it helps make my face more matte, it really does help control the shine which is exactly what I was looking for. It doesn't cover up blemishes, but it makes my skin more even and once again, less shiny. The only downside to it is that in the container it is very chalky and the powder can get a little messy at times.
This smells soooo good! I gave it a 5 just for the smell alone. It's a good scrub too but what really got me was the scent and I am going to go out and get more of the chocomania line.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum Express The Falsies Flared

I didn't like this the first couple times I used it, it seemed to do nothing to my lashes. It looked like I hadn't put anything on so I had to layer another mascara over it. However, I did try it again a few days later and it worked like a real mascara! It volumized and lengthened like I expected. It is not the best I have used but I will enjoy using it while I have it!
This is such a pretty color! It is sparkly but not too sparkly and brightens my eyes. I have gotten many compliments while wearing this. The best part is that it stays on all day! Most eyeshadows start creasing or disappearing around midday but this lasted forever. I will buy again.
I think this may be my new favorite mascara. At first I didn't like it as it didn't seem to make too much of a difference to my eyes, but after a few tries I found that it was very buildable and made my lashes so long and full. I kept piling on the mascara until it stopped getting too noticable but never clumpy. It looked dramatic but not too unnatural and sooo pretty I got compliments.
I bought this just because of the name. I thought it would look really pretty and I also liked the packaging. The mascara is not bad but I have used better. It separates nicely and doesn't clump, at least not for me. The cone shape brush is nice and makes it easy to not smear your undereyes when putting it on your lower lashes. It is a nice mascara for everyday, but if you prefer more dramatic lashes this is not for you. No matter how much I layered it, it didn't seem to give any more drama.
The brush turned me off at first but i did get used to it. It is easy to use once you get the hang of it which does not take long at all. I got compliments on my lashes the other day when I was wearing this and that has never happened before! I would purchase again because it does make my lashes look longer and even thicker, and is not quite as expensive as other designer mascaras.
Moisturizers -Aveeno - Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer

I bought this in hopes it would help clear up some of my breakouts butttt it didn't. I feel like my skin was clearer when I used Olay moisturizer than when I used this so I have recently switched back to that. I do like the pump bottle and it isn't too heavy which was nice, but it just didn't do the job for me.
This mascara does give me a more dramatic look than other mascaras which is what I was looking for when I bought this. At first it came out clumpy but that's because the brush is curved and I wasn't holding it the right way. If you do hold the brush properly then you really shouldn't get too many clumps. I'm not a fan of the curved brush but I guess that's how it gives you the look of false lashes so I can't complain about that too much. Overall, its a pretty good mascara and not expensive compared to the designer brands which I find are about on the same level as this one.
Mascara -Victoria's Secret - Pro Voluptuous FX Mascara

I love this! It makes my lashes thicker and longer looking but never flakes or makes my eyelashes stiff. I can also apply many layers without having to worry about getting the spidery look.
I'm a mark rep and received this after i signed up. It's a decent mascara but nothing special. It gave me more of a natural look. It was only really noticeable after many many coats of it, but it did look very nice. I probably wouldn't buy again because I prefer my mascara to look more dramatic.
Lip Gloss -mark - glow baby glow luxe in orchid luxe

I like this color a lot. I think it would probably look better on those with tan skin. It's a very pink fuschia kind of color with lots of sparkle. If you don't like sparkle then don't get it, but it really is so pretty!
Bronzers -Origins - Sunny Disposition Bronzing Stick
HunnyBear12234 9/16/2009 10:44:00 AM
I really like how this bronzer is in a stick. It's so easy to apply and I can also use it as an eyeshadow or lip color. The one thing about it though is the stick broke off really easy soon after I bought it.I just stuck it back on and it works perfectly but still. I also am not sure if it breaks me out or not. I don't use it everyday, so I'm not sure if I'll ever figure that out.
