Mascara -Unlisted Brand - Apple By Apple - Super Lash
LelaViavonie 8/24/2010 11:44:00 AM
I am on the fence.. cause there are more positives than negatives.. and maybe its because I havent had a steady hand lately... Soo.. I bought the Almond kind from my local 98 Cent store down the street and went home to try it.. I reallly loved the texture and the SMELL! I recently lost my beloved pet and had been crying all weekend and well lets just say this stuff is amazing with the water works... after I was done sobing my mascara was perfectly in place with NO racoon eyes.. what a Relief! My only con.. is that since yesterday it has been more difficult to put it on .. im not sure if its because I still have puffy eyes or the formula has changed in the heat...we shall see if this changes but I do love the formula and noticed that my eyelashes are starting to grow back thicker :)
I LOVE this gloss!!! THis is the good ol standby gloss that I use when I run out of my Betty Buxom... for one dollar you cant beat the beautiful color it gives. I am tan and I like the just bitten look so I layer this on a bit and my lips stand out :) WHat I really like is that it lasts a long time on the lips.. I can have it on for a couple of hours and it still looks great. WIll keep buying!!!
Powder -Clinique - Perfectly Real Compact Powder Foundation
LelaViavonie 8/10/2010 11:24:00 AM
I originally took my friend out to buy some powder and so I took her to Clinique because its the middle of the road price and pretty good quality. So I matched her with the correct shade and then that night we went out and I applied her makeup for her... it looked really nice and just gave a natural look, exactly what we both like cause we dont wear foundation or anything normally. So I have it about a couple days to see how it looked on her and last night decided I would get something to brush on to even the skintone out a bit more. So I put it on this morning and it was the perfect shade... and it went on nice and light.. you could tell it made my face even but without the cakey look.. so that was impressive cause if you can tell im wearing powder or foundation.. I hate it. So far so good.. I cant really say much about the wear because its only been a few hours I have had it on so I will be back to report my findings on this :)
Lotions/ Creams -Lubriderm - Sensitive Skin Therapy Moisturizing Lotion
LelaViavonie 8/2/2010 11:37:00 AM
I am in LOVE with this product.. I literally use it for everything... I recently just traveled to Colombia and my luggage did quite make it when I did there and ALLL my facial products were in that bag.. so I literally had nothing. I always carry my bottle of lubriderm in my purse because of my dry hands and knees or feet.. well.. I found a soap to wash my face but the problem is that my skin is soooo sensative that I will break out in a milasecond and will burn if I use most products... So here I am in a whole new country and I have no idea what Im going to do.. so I get out of the shower and look in my purse and think to myself.. this is all I have.. I have no choice.. if it breaks me out... then OH WELL... and so I used it ... WOW.. amazing.. didnt break me out and with the change in weather and the cabin skin it kept my skin from getting reaaaaly dry. I used it for a few days until my luggage arrived and even now that I am back in the country my skin had a reaaaly hard time adjusting to the water and air. So.. I went to my natural stand by and used this... and slathered it on to help with the dry skin.. after about a week... I just use it around my nose and chin where there are still a couple of dry patches and it does wonders.. LOVE this product!!
I have been using this for about a month now and so far I like it.. Im not in LOVE with it.. but its a good natural everyday mascara for work and running out the door. I naturally have long eye lashes so this mascara really defines them and makes them stand out... as for building volume.. that can be acomplished but with lots of work and that can get pretty anoying so I just use this a a basic everyday mascara.. Im not sure If I will repurchase.. I might want to check out other kinds to see what results I get.. but if I ever was in a crunch and needed a mascara I would pickt his up. Update: Well I made it through my first tube and I am soooo happy that im done with it.. towards the end it just was such a pain to put on .. the tube became a real gunfest and it wasnt doing anything for my lashes anymore... :(

LelaViavonie 6/17/2010 11:28:00 AM
I have had this for about 3 days and have used it all three days and so far it has not had any effects to my face but has make it really soft and I do love the fact that this has SPF in it.. BUT.. the only thing is that I am very tan.. and I do have some eneven skintone from acne scars and I do like the consitency of the stuff but Im not sure if it may be to light on me and leave a slight white cast.. I have been asking my family and friends around me if they can tell I have anything on and they say no.. so it must just be me and looking way too hard.. lol The concealer is AMAZING! Goes on sooooo smooth and it stays on!!! I have reaaaaaaly oily eye lids and I use concealer to brighten my eyes and it stays on alll llllllday.. even after my workout... (and i mean dripping sweat) Sooo.. I will be back to review after a couple of days.. I still dont know if I want to keep it.. but I will keep testing it out. UPDATE: 6/28/10 I LOVE THIS STUFF! It does amazing in crazy Vegas Heat.. great in colder months too with a moisturiser under it.. and the coverage is super versitile.. I can cover spots if need be.. the concealer is perfect.. and love the SPF.. great in the pool.. I love love love love love this stuff.. and im quite dark now that I have been in the sun.. and this stuff looks so natural and looks great in pics.. and did I mention it takes me less than a minute to apply with my fingertips.. YEP.. im hooked :D
AMAZING!!!! I kept seeing the commercials about it and I always wear my hair up at work but have to use at lease 20 bobbypins in my hair to make it stay up.. then at that point I am full of pins and you can see it. So I went to my local Walmart and got the box for brunette hair for about 6.00, went home and tried it out. I have thick/long/frizzy hair and did a quick messy bun and spun the pins in.. OMG... I though my hair was going to fall right out and WHhhalaaaa... my bun kept in though the salsa dancing.. I have to say you do need to positon them in the right places so that they stay but they DO stay in place.. ;) IN LOVE.. with buy some for my mom
This color is SOOOOOO beautiful! Its the perfect Red for all skintones, I am tan and the red is just perfect! At $15 a bottle.. I can see where it would be expensive.. but you barley need any polish to cover the nail.. it truly is such a beautiful color and I cant wait to try Fedora and Tutti Frutti!.. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff.. the whole line is amazing.. PLUS 14 DAY manicure! Update: It has been 1 WEEK and NO CHIPS.. and is still Shiny like the day I did them :) One happy person! Will update on the 14th day.

This is the base coat for the CND Shellac system.. one wipe and cure for 10 seconds.. EASY.. and does not SMELL! From the looks of it.. It will last a really long time because you only need a small swipe on each nail!

The staying power is really great and my wings come out so perfect! Will keep purchasing.. worth all $18.
Lip Gloss -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Lip gloss - Betty
LelaViavonie 5/10/2010 12:49:00 PM
Went into Sephora this past weekend and was looking for a berry lip gloss to give me the "just bitten" lips... at first glance this looked waaaay to Pink.. then my boyfriend told me just to try it and lo and behold.. its such a beautiful color on my tan complexion.. so I bought it.. the color is soo pretty and the smells is delish.. as to the taste.. it dosent taste bad.. but really dosnet have a taste.. so I cant comment on that. UPDATE: 11/02/2010 This is sersiouly my HG lipgloss... I love the color it gives me.. just bitten and its a great alternative if i dont want to wear my bold red lippy.. love how it does not dry my lips out and the wear is great. I dont like the price.. but this is the first lipgloss I cant live without :)
I was hoping this would be alittle thicker but used it anyways because I wanted to see if it would detangle my unrly hair.. it SURE did.. I was able to brush it out and my hair was very soft and moisturised when I got out of the shower. The smell is a bit strong.. but it is soooo relaxing :) Will update as I keep using it to see the outcome. Update: Its Been about a Week and IM IN LOVE... I can actually fall asleep with wet hair and wake up in the morning with virtually NO FRIZZ.. that is amazing.. lol Oh.. and my hair is SUPER soft
This is some pretty good stuff.. it replaced the blue line they had that was horrible and I have very frizzy fine hair that is wavy/curly/straight and is all over the place when it dries. I woke up this morning to see that I did not look like someone hit me over the head with a gust of wind and when I brushed my hair out it didnt BLOW up like a blowfish in frizz. I will keep using this and come back with more results in a few weeks, so far my hair is really tame and still maintians curl/wave and is SUPER soft :) Update: Its Been about a Week and IM IN LOVE... I can actually fall asleep with wet hair and wake up in the morning with virtually NO FRIZZ.. that is amazing.. lol Oh.. and my hair is SUPER soft
