Pressed Powders -Neutrogena - Shine Control Pressed Powder
MrsTefee 3/21/2013 10:32:00 PM
This is just a regular translucent powder. It does control shine well BUT its very chunky and doesnt blend very well on my skin, making it feel dry and look flaky. Its also pretty expensive for a drugstore powder.. I wont buy again.

Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Lolavie Perfume by Jennifer Aniston
MrsTefee 3/14/2013 11:10:00 PM
If you are looking for a light, spring fresh beachy scent this is it! The lasting power isnt great...its more like a body mist IMO so I think its rather expensive since it doesnt last too long. I get the most wear out of it by spritzing it in my hair! Its very lovely, I really like it : ) It smells just like the beach.
I bought this to just try it out and see if it was good. I have worn this about a week and found that its just too runny. I put it on my lash line and it somehow smears onto my skin below my bottom lashes when I smile/laugh alot. At first I thought it was my mascara but I bought a waterproof mascara and its still smearing so now I know its the eyeliner. Its because I NEVER have this problem with eyeliners until this one so....this was a no go. The victoria's secret pencil liner is better than this. I gave it two lippies because its at least very nice and dark silky black in colour which is nice.
This is an amazing mascara and it really does give a false lashes look. But you really have to know HOW to put it on or you will just get clumps! I suggest curling your lashes first, then apply the mascara flat side first then run the bristle side through your lashes second. It makes my thin, sparse boring lashes look amazing! I wore this on my wedding day and It didnt clump or flake or smear all day (I used the waterproof version). The only thing I dont like about it is the bottle is kinda big and bulky..I prefer slimmer shaped bottles but eh what evs haha. Its also pretty cheap (just about 5 bucks) which is nice! :)
BB Cream -Too Faced - Tinted Beauty Balm Multi-Benefit Skin Care Makeup
MrsTefee 3/3/2013 7:26:00 PM
love love love!!! I have this in the shade "snow glow" and its a perfect match. Its a neutral-yellow tone very pale color and blends into my skin wonderfully. Im equivalent to an NC5 in mac. This is the closest american BB cream Ive found that is similar to the asian bb creams. I actually like this MORE than the asian ones because its not as thick and heavily scented as asian bb creams are. Im sensitive to fragrance so Im really happy there is none in this AND there are still beneficial ingredients for the skin AND spf! LOVE it! I hope too faced doesnt get rid of this ever.
Hair Color -Clairol - Soy 4Plex Liquicolor professional hair color
MrsTefee 2/27/2013 7:40:00 PM
I actually really like this. I have been using this for almost a year, going back using mostly the lightest golden blonde color and shifting to the neutral version after I noticed my roots started to become brassy. I used to use the Clairol nice n easy dye but it ruined my hair so when i switched to this it was much more gentle. I use it with 30vol developer and never have a problem. Every once in a while my head gets itchy after dying but its nothing a little oil treatment doesnt fix :) I also like the way this grows out, I get a root line but its not as bad looking as Ive had with other hair dyes so I can go longer between dying which is awesome. Im a natural dirty blonde.
Skincare - Face -Pacifica - Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes
MrsTefee 2/25/2013 11:55:00 PM
I bought these today at target to try out because I really love coconut products! I used these on my face like I do with other typical cleansing wipes and they stung my face really bad!!! I dont even have sensitive skin! I love the smell of these and the fact that they are natural but Im definitely not buying them ever again since they sting; however I will leave them by the bedside for my hands whenever necessary to use them up.
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - One 'n Only - Argan Oil Restorative Mask
MrsTefee 2/25/2013 10:32:00 PM
I got the little 3oz size of this to try. I used this after dying my hair with a permanent blonde color, after I shampooed my hair I left this in for about 10 mins and it left my hair feeling very soft and silky afterwords :) I also really like the smell of it too! I will continue to use this after I dye my hair and any other times I feel the need for a hair mask.
I dont understand the bad reviews for this. I have the lightest shade classic ivory (im about nc5) and it its perfect for my skintone. I didnt feel any grainyness at all in this so im not sure where people are getting that? I did shake mine up a bit before using so maybe no one is shaking it first? I dont know haha... I applied this with my fingers and it blended out beautifully to a matte finish (just over my spf 15 moisturizer). I didnt wear a powder after because it looked matte enough and I can just blot later if needed; its been all day and my skin still looks airbrushed! I think the trick is to use a little bit in just your t-zone area and/or on blemishes/marks you need to cover.. dont pile this one with a makeup brush or sponge because it will just look cakey. I got a medium coverage with this. The only gripe I have is this product is too thick and doesnt pour out of the container..like at all... I dont know why neutrogena didnt put this in a tube or at least with a pump because its pretty obviously too thick for just pouring. Ill buy this again when I run out ONLY IF they change the packaging so it dispenses better but if not ill keep to the skin clearing foundation or try the healthy skin one.....otherwise its too much of a hastle.
awww wow! I love this actually! Its SO cheap and it really DOES lengthen your lashes..no volume of course (this isnt meant for volume) but perfect length and seperating which is my favorite kind of mascara. NO CLUMPS!!! The formula is nice and wet but without smearing or flaking after it dries. Great : ) The brush reminds me of a smaller/skinnier version of the CG lash blast which I didnt like because the brush was wayyy too fat. This wnw one is much better! Ill be keeping this one in my purse for on-the-go needs!
Pressed Powders -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Mineral Face Powder
MrsTefee 2/23/2013 2:06:00 PM
This is my go-to powder. I have been using this for years and always come back to it. I am about nc5ish and use translucent light as a foundation and I keep translucent in my purse if I need a touch up.They blend into your skin very nice and have a glowy natural finish. I love that its mineral powder and one compact lasts such a long time! I can never find anything better than this stuff. The only thing I dont like is the big bulky compact and the junky brush...I always throw it away and use my own puff.
It seems people love these or hate them! For me I LOVE them! They are sticky yes but thats why they last so long on your lips!!! I can get a few hours of wear with the mac lipglass while the ds brands barely last 10 mins. There is lots of color too which is great...and many shades :) I dont think they are that expensive...I can spend 15 dollars buying ds glosses over and over again or I can buy a mac lipglass that will last me for months (still have the one I bought in july 2012!). Love!

TINTED color...they are gloss not lipsticks!!!

Love!
I do like these but I feel like they are a waste of money...they are not sticky but they wear off in about 10 or 15 mins! Totally not worth it! I have one and I will use it up but not buying anymore...I use it when I feel like my lips are dry and need moisture because they feel soft and moisturizing on my lips.
