Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types
cwinter 7/16/2011 11:34:00 PM
received this as a sample. Loved it had enough for three uses in the evening. great night moisturizer made my skin feel and look silky. only downside for me is the soap scent. I might buy this in the tube or if I can find it on sale. don't love the smell but I love the results!
For the days I have really dark circles this offers the heavy coverage i need. packaging okay. price high for a concealer. But since i don't need to use it every day it lasts a log time. color match was great.
Eye Shadow -Almay - Almay Intense i-Color Eye Shadow Play Up Trio for Greens

This the second trio I've bought from Almay. Loved my first trio it had a highlighter, pink and brown shade, I would buy that one again. Not so this one; this one has a greyish white, dark grey and greyish silver , just a really weird mix.right now they just don't work and just end up looking muddy.I may have to play with these over different bases.
Eye Shadow -L.A. Colors - 5 Color Metallic Eyeshadow (all colors)

5 metallic eyeshadows in Tea Time. shimmers in light peach,sand,taupe,4th color looks really similiar to the 2nd one,a brown with purple undertones. My favorite combo is the first shade and last shade.throw away the foam brush. Cheap plasitic packaging. these eyeshadows are worth having in your collection.
baked eyeshadow quad in nightlife.Shimmer shadows in white,dark grey,plum,black. Used over the shimmer La Colors eyeshadow primer easy to blend and adds extralasting power.$1.50 at a dollar store. The pigment is awesome. Carefully apply there is fallout. Package is bulky and hard to open. Forget the foam brush that comes with it
I have the shade 070 sorry can't read the color name the print is too small. long lasting deep berry color. use the balm from the other end for daytime. in the evening i use a nice high shimmer gloss to punch it up . the slanted sponge tip applicator does pick up too much product, so i just use a disposable lip brush to apply. I would rebuy this, not sure what other shades they offer that might work for me. but this is the first long lasting lipstick/gloss i haven't been dissappointed in.
my favorite everday pink lipstick. light sheer, slight shimmer. texture on lips is smooth. average wear does need touch up. gold tradtional l'oreal packaging. price is ok even better on a bogo.
nice berry shade with light shimmer. burguny tube with click on lid that stays put and doesn't slip off in my purse. this shade is ver similar to mac Sophisto.

sheer red, nice texture, moisturizing. packaging is ok clear top that clicks on. i just don't like the clear printed labels they curl up on the edges. wears off unevenly. love the color just wish it was longer lasting.

Great pink with gold shimmer, sheer sweet smelling. Does not last long. It's afun lipstick but the sweet smell puts me off and I wish it would last longer. i wouldn't rebuy but this is a lipstick I use at lease twice a month for evening.
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers - Pink Chiffon
cwinter 1/18/2011 10:33:00 PM
Nice highlighter fo under the brow. On the lid in the corner of the eye. I even use to help blend the edges of darker shadows. Great staple to have in your eyeshadow rotation. Not big on covergirl eyeshadows because for me they do not seem to have enoughh pigment and tend to fade. But this is one i use at least every other day.
Lips -Cover Girl - Natureluxe Gloss Balm in Grenache
cwinter 1/1/2011 9:56:00 AM
Impulse buy, $8.00 at walgreens. Pretty high price for an okay lipgloss in stickform. Wears like a glossy lipstick. has spf15 so there some protection for dry lips in the winter months. Not long lasting. Yes, I'll use this tube up but I wouldn't rebuy at this price. Packaging is light green plastic with printed sticker and clear top, not impressed.
I bought this one to try out the formula and played it safe by buying the nude shade. This a color changing lipstick! Looks nude in the pacakaging, looks nude when you apply it. Then changes to pink after a 1/2 hour or so. going on it's soft then becomes drying to the point my lips feel puckered. The clear top of the tube becomes messy looking over time. it's now in the bottom of my drawer. No rebuy.
