sadistic 2/24/2005 9:07:00 PM
i purchased this at wal mart along with berry bella for under 5bucks each.. the lolly pink is very pretty, it gives a nice shiny pink glaze to the lips
its not sticky not watery, just a nice consistency, and has a nice smell to it too, and doesnt taste bad either
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Maybelline Shiny-Licious Lipgloss in Berry Bella
sadistic 2/24/2005 9:01:00 PM
i purchased this at walmart for under 5$ .. a compulsive buy, but i was surprised that it is a very nice lip gloss... berry-bella is a fuscia with shimmer and looks like a dark shiny pink on the lips.
the felt tip might not be hygenic, but i use a lip brush to apply it, i dont think it lasts very long but thats okay, i think the scent is nice, and it doesnt taste bad either--if you happen to get it in your mouth accidentally
i'd get more, they're fun!
Skincare - Face -Bobbi Brown - Protective Face Lotion with SPF 15
sadistic 2/24/2005 8:55:00 PM
i purchased this at saks for 40-something$ i think, and it was the larger 3.4 oz size bobbi brown has during the holidays.
this is prob one of the best moisturizers i have tried .. my skin is typically oily, and this lotion did not make my face more greasy but left it nice and something for my powder to cling on to and i did not notice my face oilier during the day either
it goes on nicely and has an herbal smell thats not too bad, it goes away after a while, and the pump bottle is travel friendly
id definitely recommend this.. it is a very nice moisturizer and has an spf of 15 so thats good too!
i purchased the #6 and #9 in a set before christmas from sephora, i believe it was 25$, and it came with a brush
they are a pink shimmer and a nude shimmer, and i dont think they're really anything to rave about.. i plan on returning them..
i used them as shadows, but they dont give much color and the shimmer was alright. i dont think the vials would have lasted very long, and the packaging is kind of annoying to use, i was afraid id spill too much, but you can keep the lid on and shake it so the powder comes out through the holes and take the lid off and use a brush to take off the powder thats left on top
other than that i think its kind of expensive for what it is.. i think all stila's products are
i purchased this at saks for 37$ or around there, kind of expensive but worth it, this is a nicely packaged set of 4 kohl shimmer eyeliners that come with a dual ended brush, the liner on one end and a shadow on the other, the latter which isnt so good
the colors are black, purple, brown and blue shimmers.. they kind of look all the same used dry, but the colors come out nicely if you use them wet.. but ill continue to use them dry just cause im lazy, and using them dry gives a nice smokey eye
the packaging is nice, i keep the plastic that covers the blocks otherwise i think it kind of gets messy
i like these eyeliners much better because they are easier to use than the guerlain eye kohl which comes in a powder form, and produces the same effect.. i think these are winter limited edition so get them while you still can
i think this is one of those products you buy just cause it looks so pretty.. and at 50$ it better be pretty!
this is a creamy shimmery highlighter that can be used on the eyes cheeks and lips, but i use this as an eyeshadow... i dont use the applicator that it came with, just my finger to blend it on my lids... it gives a nice soft shimmer..
the packaging is nice, chanels compacts always look pretty, and the mirror is good too
i purchased this at sephora for 15$.. kind of on the expensive side for a lipgloss but i like to splurge now and then.. especially lip glosses.
this is a nice, shiny not-too-pink gloss on the lips, i dont think it stays on very well but half the fun is putting it on... the tube is travel friendly and you dont need a mirror to put it on.
it has a nice minty smell and a cool feeling when you apply it, it is not sticky and not too of a watery consistency
Eye Shadow -Clinique - Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quad Tickled Pink
sadistic 2/24/2005 7:52:00 PM
this is a cute compact from clinique that holds 4 different shadows-- a white, pink, darker pink, and a brown.. they are all shimmery and easy to put on. i typically find clinique products kind of dry but these shadows are almost creamy the packaging is alright, the mirror is good, but i didnt mind so much that it doesnt have a place to hold the applicator cause i use different brushes anyway i think 25$ was kind of expensive for something that came in a cardboard container, but no biggie, they are nice colors and go on well id recommend it, and im thinking of purchasing the tickled peach quad as well
Lotions/ Creams -Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Hand Cream
sadistic 2/24/2005 7:44:00 PM
this is the first time ive actually bought this product but not the first time ive tried it. it is a really good, inexpensive hand cream. i got 3 of these for like 6.49 or something at sam's club which i thought was a good deal. you cant use a lot of it though, just a dab, like it says, otherwise your hands can get kind of greasy, but otherwise it leaves your skin very soft i think on the packaging it said each 2 oz. tube has over 200 applications or something like that and the tubes are small so theyre easy to carry around in your handbag
this is a very nice treatment for your lashes it actually lengthens and primes your lashes before your mascara, and for me it helps the mascara go on and stay put very well im not sure how much it was because i took it from my mom, but its probably expensive but definitely worth the price ***5/11/04 update: ive been using this stuff every time before i put on mascara and i love it. the other day when i only had mascara with me i was actually kind of weary to put it on without the primer. it keeps the mascara from smudging, and keeps it on all day---definitely try it, i love this stuff!
this is one of the best 'lip glosses' i have tried, and i've tried a lot of them!! the color is very pretty, like a pink-mauvey with shimmer, the smell is nice, and you really cant taste anything (which is a plus) it goes on very well with the applicator it comes with, and this is one of the very few lip glosses that hasnt dried out my lips i would definitely come back to this one, try it!!
i think the only reason why i got this is because it smelled really good, but it tastes horrible like soap it did not do anything to moisturize my lips, it actually dried them out the consistency is watery when you put it on your lips, and you need to use your nail to get the balm out i would definitely NOT recommend this ------edit 9-15-10 why did i even give this 2 lippies, more like 0!! (but you gotta pick something ;)
this is a nice product for moisturizing and making your skin soft, it is a milky consistency and easy to put on and you dont need so much, but i dont know about intensive firming i would not buy this again because i like to try different lotions the packaging is alright, product is easy to dispense, the smell i did not care for (sort of too perfumy) 8.4 oz for 8-9 bucks isnt so bad i guess, but there are other stuff out there
Liquid -Chanel - Double Perfection Fluide [DISCONTINUED]

this foundation is very good, i think the best part about it is that you can use your fingers to blend, and it blends very easily. and you dont need that much so the bottle lasts a long time. also has spf 15, so thats a plus
i love these lip glosses, the colors are nice, though they dont show up that much on the lips, they are more of sheer tints. i have ruby slipper, melonade, and banana smoothie. i use a lip brush for these. they go on very shiny
