Lip Treatments -Chapstick - 100% Naturals - Lip Butter
lissaSBC 12/12/2007 3:06:00 AM
This is the cheapest lip balm I own, and I have spent lots of money on various department store brands. However this lip butter does wonders for my lips. I can put this on at night before I go to bed and my lips are soft. It doesn't have any particular scent, which I like. I also use this when I'm in a hurry to moisturize dry patches on my face or near my hairline. This is the first Chapstick product that I've actually used continuously. I used to be a fan of Aquaphor, however I have noticed that every tube I have owned separates and turns into oily junk. I highly recommend this product because you get so many uses out of it and the price is great for a broke college student like myself.
Lip Gloss -Clarins - Instant Light Lip Perfector - Rose Shimmer

I love this product! I agree with all of the reviewers, this is very moisturizing, and not sticky at all. On my very pigmented lips, it still manages to give them a beautiful pink glow. Also, I love the smell. Sort of like vanilla cotton candy, if that makes any sense? I have a feeling I will end up purchasing another tube, because I can't stop applying this. This is the first Clarins product that I have ever bought, I hope they have other winners like this one!
Great powder. Deposits no color, but keeps my skin oil-free for hours. I love the compact and the cute little phrase in the mirror, it certainly brightens up my day! I was able to get a discount on this, from my local beauty store. If you have oily skin, you have to give this a try.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Very Sexy Lip Gloss in Wet

I love this gloss! This definitely MLBB! The gloss isn't sticky and has a lovely smell. I am addicted to VS lipglosses! I just hate, hate the crappy brush! I got a mini of this and luckily the opening for the gloss is wide enough so the bristles don't splay. I just wish they would rethink the opening to the bottle and widen the hole so the brush can stay in tact. Anyway, I love this color, I can actually see myself wearing this through summer!
Gels/Soaps -Philosophy - Inner Grace Shampoo Bath and Shower Gel

I absolutely love this shower gel! Smells sexy to me and it smells great on me. I can't wait to try out the body spray. I hope it smells just as good as this does!
Lip Gloss -Fusion Beauty - LipFusion Color Shine in Sugar
lissaSBC 9/14/2007 12:40:00 AM
I love this color! Sephora's website described this as a "Sheer opalescent pink mauve-with blue undertones to make teeth whiter". I can definitely say that the description is pretty accurate! The color appears as a beautiful sheer shade of mauve on my lips that doesn't look too pink or purple. I can't say if it actually makes my teeth look whiter, since my teeth are white already but this gloss is amazing overall. The formula is a bit thick but it is extremely moisturizing and it plumps my lips nicely. It sells for $38 regularly but I bought mine off off ebay for $16. I plan on repurchasing this as it fills in the lines in my lips and makes them look smooth.
This is the best mascara I have ever purchased! I have oily skin and mascara tends to break down on me pretty fast. Not this one! This lasted on my eyes from 7 AM to 7 PM with no flaking or smudging! I didn't have any stinging of my eyes from the flaking, like other formulas have done in the past. The brush is kind of flexible like the lash brush from the Maybelline Define-a-lash mascara and the formula contains Teflon which is supposed to make it last longer. I have long, curly eyelashes so I didn't notice if it made my lashes longer. But I did notice the brush separated my lashes without any clumps.The only thing I wanted was for it to not smudge, and it did just that. I plan on repurchasing again.
Eye Shadow -Smashbox - Trio - Smashing Camera Ready
lissaSBC 8/25/2007 3:14:00 AM
Love this eyeshadow trio! I normally never wear it. Except my friend wanted to buy this so badly but she had eyeshadow already on, they tried it on me. The MA made my eyes look amazing! I received compliments all day! I am a MAC NC40 for reference and it brought my eyes out. I This eyeshadow stayed on for over 8 hours and that's a miracle in itself since I have very oily eyelids. I really love Smashbox, and luckily for me we have an amazing MA at my local Nordies who knows how to help others with make up application. I have a pic to show how the colors look on me:
The perfect primer for my eyes. It neutralized the darkness on my eyelids and makes my eyes look more refreshed. I love how the shimmer in it gives me a nice clean eye. I thought this primer at first would be too light but it was just right for my skintone (MAC NC40). It made my smashbox eyeshadow last for several hours.
I bought this today and I freaking love it! It brings out the color in my naturally rosy lips. And it complements my face when I wear cool colors on my eye. I'm a MAC NC40 for reference. I also found that this gloss had a slight smell but it dissipates after you apply it. This is the first LM gloss that I have ever bought and I know I'll purchase again when I run out.
Treatments (Eye) -Christian Dior - HydraAction Hydra-Protective Eye Creme SPF 20
lissaSBC 8/19/2007 9:56:00 PM
I received a generous sample from the MA at the Dior counter. This eye cream is amazing! I use it during the day and it camouflages my dark circles and makes me look rested. I don't even need to use concealer! It has a faint rose smell and it's light weight not at all greasy. When my sample runs out I plan on buying this right away. It's $45 for 0.5 oz. Not bad for a Dior product it was cheaper than the last eye cream that I bought from Prescriptives but I see results right away.
This is the best bronzer I have ever used! I'm a MAC NC40 with oily skin and sometimes my skin looks dull at times. I remembered having this in my stash and put it on immediately. It gave my skin a beautiful "in the sun" glow and made my face look slimmer instantly! As a Latina I can tell you it's hard to find a bronzer that doesn't look like mud on your face but this gives me a natural tanned glow. This is a definite keeper!
Lip Gloss -Estee Lauder - High Gloss - Blush [DISCONTINUED]
lissaSBC 8/8/2007 11:27:00 PM
Love this it has a smell that I am not used to,but I like it overall. And it feels like a nice moisturizing balm with shine. Blush enhances my natural lip color (my lips are naturally rosy) and keeps them soft. It's not sticky and it's perfect for everyday wear at work (I work at a high school). I received a lot of compliments on this color. I can't wait to try other colors!
This is my first BB lipstick. After trying on many colors and not being successful with the other colors (I'm a MAC NC 40) with very rosy pigmented lips, I needed to find something neutral but nothing that will wash me out. On my lips it gives me a nice pop of pink berry color. Also this formula is sheer but lasts a very long time on me, when the color begins to fade, it fades evenly into a nice stain on my lips. It does a decent job of moisturizing will repurchase if I don't find something that is a better color for me.

Amazing stuff! My hair has been frizzy lately, and I put this on my hair when it was dry and it made my hair so smooth. I love Biolage!
