I bought this after intensive research for a good drugstore concealer. First off, I want to say that the packaging is so deceitful. It seems as if you get a big full tube but if you look closely there is this piece of paper that is inserted in the packaging so it seems like you will never run out of concealer. It's really hard to describe but what you see is not what you get. The concealer itself is not bad but defintely not the bomb. Maybe I got a color too light but I find that this concealer does not cover my dark circles that great. I would not purchase again and would recommend it if you had a coupon. i think i paid $8 for it.
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray
viviansweethart 1/2/2012 3:02:00 AM
I have been using this product for over a year now and it's great. Smells amazing! I have to admit I'm not sure if this product has done a huge difference for my hair but I feel that it makes my hair softer after I blowdry it and I don't have much split ends anymore. One thing that amazes me is this product is extremely long lasting. One bottle has lasted for a year or so? It comes out as a mist and I just spray a couple all over my hair and blowdry. I have to mention again that this smells amazing!! It's pretty cheap too. I believe it's under $5. Also, this got repackaged and it now includes a on/off feature. I don't care for it but people who stow their products in a drawer may have use for the feature. Overall, if you're hunting for a good heat protectant, try this out.
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover

Wow, I love this stuff! It fixes my eye makeup oopsies in a flash. I use this to fix my eyeliner. Works great with a cotton swab. There's a funny story about this product. I used it for the longest time and it was oily to me. I was thinking to myself the name is a liar because this product is extremely oily. I read the directions and it said "Shake Well" and I did that and that has made the difference. I don't get that super oily feeling on my eyes anymore when I fix my eyeliner. I have to admit this product stings a tiny bit so I have to wash my eyes w/ warm water right after I use this product. Also, this product is pretty affordable, around $6 or $7. This is a great product!
Lip Treatments -Nivea - A Kiss of Smoothness Hydrating Lip Care
viviansweethart 1/2/2012 2:47:00 AM
I love this product and so does my mom and sister. The packaging is very basic. A twist up style like a lipstick and a cap over it. The lip balm is moisturzing and makes my lips smooth which is exactly what the product's name says. The only con about this is that the smell of the lip balm is weird. It reminds me of Dove soap. Go check this out!
First off, this product is pretty expensive for the mediocre quality and the extremely small amount you receive. The applicator brush is stiff. That may be a good thing for some people but I wasn't a fan of the super stiff brush. Also, it the brush seemed to be a little rough so it would irritate my eyes a bit when I was applying this liner. The eyeliner is comparable to black watercolor. It's not bad if you line your eyes a a few times but just one time will result in black watercolor quality. This liner isn't as terrible as I'm describing it but it's not something I would purchase again. Especially because of the tiny amount of liner I got. Something that I liked about this eyeliner was the ease of removing it. When I wanted to remove it I just rubbed my eyes with warm water and it was gone. Again, it may be a bad thing in case you cry but I liked the ease of removal. Bottom line: Buy if it's on sale.
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Schick Intuition razor

I was not extremely satisfied with this razor. I prefer the Venus Embrace more, but I just bought a box of Intuition cartridges so I guess I will have to use this for now. When I first used it, I thought it was pretty cool that there was a moisturizing bar with it thus eliminating the need of shaving cream. The moisturzing bar is no where near as good as my shaving cream. ( I use Skintimate moisturizing shave cream btw) Also, I noticed that the moisturizing bar goes away pretty fast. By the 4th time using the cartridge the bar is already almost gone. Another thing I don't like about this razor is no matter how hard i try to get rid of the hair i just shaved, it's still there. I saw that some people said that the cartridges are expensive, but what top-brand cartridges aren't? Anyways, I would purchase these again only if they were on sale. Otherwise, I'd stick to the Venus Embrace. Btw, I got 4 cartridges for about $13.
Wow. This nail polish totally shocked me. I applied one coat and it was streaky and I thought that eeeh that's what i get for the price i paid. (I think I paid $1?) Then I applied a few more coats and it was so opaque. The drying time was quicker than my usual nail polishes but not by too much. I hate waiting for nail polish to dry and it's is the reason that I sometimes ruin my mani b/c of the long drying time some of my polishes take. I would defnitely repurchase =)
I bought this mascara for around $6 and the reason I bought it was because it was a new product. The cons are that it leaves my lashes feeling a bit heavy and that the brush is too big for me. The pro is that it makes my lashes look defined and pretty. This product is not good enough for me to purchase again though.
Eyeliner -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Liquid Glitter Liner Platinumania

this product was a big dissapointment. i really liked the idea of glitter liner, but it stung my eyes so bad everytime i tried to use it.
