This is so good. used it everyday in smith for face, maybe the spf should be higher. karen used it too. I have sensitivie skin, but this is not greasy, not too overdrying. vanessa hudgnes uses it too. everyone should use it.i put it on as body lotion and felt a difference. my skin was more calm and less itchy. it took forever to use up though.
Mascara -Max Factor - Lash Perfection Volume Couture Waterproof

This used to be my favorite mascara. great thickening. rarely clumps. I've used this to the last bit and love it. I found out about it through various websites, and heard fashion designers use it. I have so many dating memories with it. It does only smudge a little bit. I love it. but sadly I think it's discontinued because i didn't see it at walgreens last. i can't stock up because mascara expires.
This is a korean product. It was called real chic, actually eyeshadow, but could not find it on scroll bar. it had a purple plum tone. it used to be mom's favorite from korea. it had really cute packaging. But most of the purple fell out, looked crappy, karen told me to throw it away. I wore it in dc a lot with matching eyeliner from lancome, liquid, from sephora. it came with different tones to really contour the eye. now i'm going to mix it with another shadow.
Concealers -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Spot Concealer

this is way to light, but it was perfect for summer. It really did not rub off. it stuck to my face. But it would accentuate flakes, it's old but i just started using it recently. mom bought it for me with matching foundation, which i will upload later
i had this forever. xteener uses it as a lip primer base, and it works well. I used it for concealing, eye, lip bases. concealing spots, it rubs off too soon. It's a bit too light. but it's ok now. it's so old
expensice, used to be mom's had my own, lost it in horsham. this color was light but i got gradually paler, the cap came off. I had this forever. sometimes would rub off, very heavy concealer, used to use it when i was totally broken out and had to get facial treatments in upper darby. whoever helped me pick it out at sephora was very nice.

Hair Removal -Sally Hansen - Microwaveable Eyebrow, Face & Lip Wax

I was excited to try waxing as hair removal. However, what I got was a big huge mess! the wax went all over the place, though it smelled good. The method hurt like heck, and sometimes it would leave stray hairs behind. Also, hair grew back before 8 weeks! the azulene oil was cool, but everytime I used this I ended up making a big mess and it took forever to get wax off of surfaces; I actually had to scrape using cards or knives. Needs more waxing paper in the kit!
This stuff made me break out, but I have sensitive skin. If you're not going to be consistent with the usage though, you're skill will be inconsistently breaking out and being clear, depending on this product's usage. This stuff is strong though, a little goes a long way. Would not recommend using too much of it, skin I had a major skin reaction and had to go to the Dermatologist, who prescribed Protopic, which broke my veins out. have tried using it for wrinkles on the knees. If you want something less strong but still effective, try Differin, or clindamycin with benzyl peroxide.
Fragrances -Narciso Rodriguez - Narciso Rodriguez for her EDP
rainrain826 1/6/2010 11:08:00 PM
got as a sample with Sephora order, love the smell but doesn't match my personality! It's a bit too heavy! but it's very feminine with floral notes.
I got this for my mother but she didn't like it. Preety packaging, an volumizes well. lacks in ability to mantain a curl. got clumpy so had to trash. Like the comb though.
I got this in a kit (tan, medium tan) with instructional DVD. The Dvd was helpful, and everything was good, but this stuff makes my face look greasy, while I prefer the matte look! When this powder went over my big breakouts, it looked even worse. Plus I think it aggravates my allergies. Overall, okay, but I might want to try the matte collection.
Clindamycin phosphate yellow/white bottle from Dermatologistit, very watery,takes forever to dry (into a white, chalky texture), needs to be shaked, can't tell if it made a difference, had it from highschool to college.
