Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Mechanical Eyelash Curler
skylo0406 9/11/2009 2:55:00 PM
LOVE...LOVE...LOVE...this eyelash curler. I bought it because the Revlon one I got recently just didn't curl my long straight lashes. After doing some research on MUA I went to the E.L.F. website to order it. I ended up ordering several product and was happy with pretty much everything I ordered. Cheaply priced quality makeup, whats not to love?
This is my HG mascara!!! I say that because it does exactly what I want a mascara to do. Seperates, curls, and defines. It also has a really big brush which I love. I tried the new Great Lash BIG and loved the brush but hated the formula. This mascara also leaves my lashes feeling soft and it has never clumped or flaked on me. Washes off easy too. Will buy and buy it again and again.
First I have to say that I love all of the different and interesting colors that Sinful has out. I love that they are cheap too. I had to give this one a 3 however, because it takes atleast three coats and take a long time to dry. I didn't like the color on my finger nails, but I LOVE it on my toes in the summer. Very pretty color but it takes several coats for it to get there.
Moisturizers -Clean & Clear - Oil-Free Dual Action Moisturizer

I have sensitive, dry skin. I bought this when I was having one of the worst breakouts of my adult life. I thought it would be good because it helps moisturize and helps fight breakouts. It really didn't help me mostly because it didn't moisturize my skin enought so I had to stop using it. It didn't make my breakouts worse so if you don't have senstive, dry skin this would probably work good for you.
I love rimmel polishes. This one is very interesting. It looks different depending on the light and position it is in. Looked good on both fingers and toes.

Very pretty. Dries quick. I have many rimmel polishes and like most of them.
Conditioner -Garnier - Long and Strong Conditioner

I have used other Garnier conditioners before and haven't really liked them. They seemed to leave my hair frizzy. I seen this one on sale and and thought I would give it a try. My hair is just past my shoulder blades so it is pretty long but certainly not the longest I have had it. I abuse it daily with blow drying and striaghtening so it gets pretty dry and straw like some times. After using this conditioner my hair was soft and smooth and shiny and not the least bit frizzy. The did for me what I wish the sleek and shine one would have done. Will buy again.
I am so glad that I tried this! I have had problem skin my whole life and after having kids my skin began breaking out really badly. I also have very sensitive and dry skin so I was scared at first that this would irritate or dry out my skin. I was so suprised when it left my skin soft and refreshed. My breakouts clear up so quickly. My blackheads and white heads are diminshed. My pores are smaller. My skin looks so much more even and smooth and overall more healthy looking. I use it as a toner and a scrub. I mixed in a plastic bottle tap water and sea salt to make the toner. After I wash my face I just apply to my face with a cotton ball, let dry a bit and put on my moisturizer. I add about a tsp of sea salt to a pump or two of my cleanser and scrub my face with it. I use it this way a few times a week to exfoliate. I want to try adding to my body wash and using it as a body scrub too. The best thing I have come across in years, and the cheapest!
Wasn't too impressed with this. Kind of cakey as I find most "cream to powder" foundations to be. And, as with all Mary Kay products you have to purchase the seperate, expensive, compact seperatly.
Skincare - Body -Mary Kay - Private Spa Collection Satin Hands Pampering Set

I got this as a gift and it is pretty cool. My hands take a beating with waitressing, cleaning, kids, etc. I love this because it feels really good while you do it, like a spa treatment for your hands. My only complaints are that it can get a bit messy when you have to open the tubes with the other stuff on your hands and I am not that impressed with the final step, the hand lotion. Any lotion could be used instead however.
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers Trio - Shimmering Sands

I used this for years as my everyday eyeshadow until I found Almays eye color inhancing shadows which really bring out my hazel eyes. All and all a good drug store eys shadow that is good for everyday use and has a nice amount of shimmer to it.
I really didn't know what to expect when I tried this. I kind of figured that it would be slimy and messy and not stay on my head and smell bad. None of these things were true. The honey makes the mixture sticky enough to stay put and it was easy to apply. Can't beat the price either. It washed out very easily in the shower and didn't leave my hair the least bit greasy or smelly. It did leave it very soft and shiny. Wonderful, will be doing again and again and again. You have to try it!
Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - Hot Tools Professional Ceramic Flat Iron

I have bought more expensive straighters and less expensive ones. This one is my fave by far. I was lucky enough to find it on sale at Ulta one day for 19.99! My cousin said she loved hers so I went to get one when my old one broke. It gets really hot unlike others I have bought in the past but still seems to cause the least amount of damage to my hair. Love it and couldn't live with out it.
I love these polishes. I have several shades. I am always looking for colors that are just a little different then the normal red or pink. These come in many interesting shades. They dry fast and I find that I only have to apply one coat. Pretty cheap too, a couple dollars at Walmart.

I started using this because I have been using it on my 5 year old daughter's hair, well, since she has had hair. It always leaves her hair so soft and shiny so I figured why not try it too. I love it! I use it after every wash. It is by far the best leave in conditioner I have every used. I also buy the Walmart version of it which is cheaper and works just as good. Smells good too.
