Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
littleflip66 8/19/2010 11:42:00 PM
I was choosing between this and UDPP, but based on comments about UDPP's packaging, I got this instead. I haven't used it much, but the times I have used it, I've been able to wear my eyeshadow for over eight hours without any creasing. Also, I liked that I only had to use a tiny amount of product to get good results. I haven't used any other primers, so I have nothing to compare this too, but I don't think I'll be looking for a replacement anytime soon.
This is the matte black eyeshadow that belongs in every girl's makeup bag. It's really smooth and easy to blend. The color payoff is great. There's no reason to pay 15 dollars for MAC Carbon when you can get this at less than half the price.
I bought this for a smokey eye look, and I love it. The colors aren't too glittery, and they're really pigmented. I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance under this, and my eye makeup looked great until I took it off eight hours later. This was my first NYX purchase, and if the products are this good, I'll be buying more in the future.
Lotions/ Creams -Johnson & Johnson - Forever Fresh Refreshing Lotion

This lotion is lightweight and smells great. It's perfect for the summertime, but I wouldn't use it during the colder months, when my skin is much drier.
I actually have this in the EDP. I really like this fragrance, it's really flowery and feminine, and last forever. And like other reviewers have said, men really seem to like this one.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Pink with a Splash FRESH & CLEAN

I wore this while I was going to school in the Philippines for four years, and because of the hot, humid climate there, you can't really wear heavy perfumes. This spray helped keep me fresh and clean in the heat, and because there isn't a Victoria's Secret out there, I didn't smell like everyone else. My only gripe about this fragrance is that the bottle is too big and bulky to carry around in my purse.
This scent is fresh, clean, and reminds me of summertime. However, I've had two bottles of this perfume and in both cases, the top part of the bottle has cracked and broken. The packaging sucks, but since this fragrance works so well with my body chemistry, I'll probably purchase it again.
I started wearing this when I was 17, because a guy I liked thought it smelled amazing on me. While my relationship with that guy quickly fizzled, my love for this perfume did not. This is a classic and sophisticated scent that will probably have a permanent spot in my perfume rotation.
I have this in the EDT, and I guess I could see why some people think it smells powdery. To me though, this scent 'is just soft, warm, and comforting. It's not so heavy that it can't be worn in the summertime, but I think I'll save it for the upcoming fall/winter season.
This product is perfect for an easy smokey brown eye. I'd say it's a shame that it was discontinued, but the newer Color Icon trios are just as great.
Polishes -Unlisted Brand - Pure Ice - Kiss Me Here

This was the dark grey creme I've been looking for everywhere! It went on smoothly, was opaque in two coats, and only cost two dollars! I'm so glad I picked up the last bottle.
Polishes -Rimmel - Lasting Finish Pro - Steel Grey

This is the first time I've used Rimmel nail polish, and I'm glad I tried it out. Steel Grey is a beautiful neutral taupe, works well with both bright summery outfits and the darker colors we wear in the fall. The formula and brush made application easy. This product was definitely worth the 3.99 I spent.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri Nailpolish Colors

I have this in Mint Sprint and Blazing Blue. I love that the brush lets me paint a nail in two strokes, and since this is opaque after one coat, it only takes me a few minutes to finish. It took about two minutes to dry, which I loved, because I'm not very careful with my nails after I paint them. My manicure lasted me about four days before it started chipping, which is fine, since I like to use a new color every few days anyway.
This is a great alternative when you're not in the mood for the bright red lip look. On me this color is a deep, beautiful brick red. It's a classic and I'll be wearing it a lot during the upcoming fall season.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Moisture Extreme - Royal Red [DISCONTINUED]

I bought this awhile ago when I was looking to try red lipstick without spending lots of money. On me this lipstick looks just a little too pink to be a true red. The texture of the lipstick though, feels really nice and smooth, so much nicer than the MAC Ruby Woo that I just bought today (that's obvious though, considering this lipstick is creme while the other is matte). If you're on the hunt for a true red lipstick, try this one because it's just so cheap and it feels so nice. Unfortunately, it just didn't work for me.
