Great hair colour! It was so easy and quick to use. The colour was really nice, and glossy as well. I tried a competitor's brand (since for a drug store brand it's q little pricey) to compare and it didn't do nearly as great a job. Definately repurchase in the future because nothign else beats the performances, nor ease of use.
Lotions/ Creams -St. Ives - Intensive Relief Advanced Body Moisturizer

This stuff is amazing! I'm already on my third bottle. I have very dry skin, and have tried everything to find a moisturizer than really hydrates it and keeps it that way. This stuff is great! i picked it up on a whim at a drugstore for $3 and I'm so glad i did. It's unscented and is great for everyday use. Better than any other I've tried, where some cost 7x this didn't do nearly as great a job.
I looove this foundation! i used it when i went clubbing, and when reviewing pictures hours later, it still looked fresh and absolutely flawless! I love the consistency, its not too thick but more of a liquidy gel like form. I have normal-dry (winter) skin, and this was great and hydrating the dry spots in my skin without looking oily or shiny. The lasting power was great, but I'm not sure how it'll hold up in the summer. Great for winter months though!
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]
shanty 4/2/2009 2:06:00 PM
I purchased this after looking for a base that held curls better than my go to Lancome cils booster. It definately did that. It holds curls better than anything i've tried before, but it doesn't do as much for length or volume as Lancome's.
I've been a sole user of Lancome's mascara's for a few years now, and after all the rave reviews when this came out, i had to try it. It's an alright mascara. I prefer the original defincils though. I find that I'm not a fan of the rubber-like applicators. It doesn't seperate my lashes as well as the originals, which is strange because that seems to be the main attraction for most people.Other than that, it's a decent mascara. But i'd definately recommend the original over this version.
Great eyelash curler! I've had this for years and it even came with a refill pad. After all the rave reviews about Shu Umera's, i decided to try it. It's also a decent curler but I like MACs way better hands down. And its 2/3 of the price of Shu's. Great investment, definately repurchase!
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

Great eye make up remover. I have gotten quite a few of these from Lancome GWP when I purchase their mascaras. I use MAC liquidlast liners than stay on like cement and this is one of the only things that takes it off with little to no effort! It is a little bit oily right after, but it doesn't last nor cause any skin problems. Takes everything off easily and quickly.
Just FYI - I thought this was a mineral make up when I purchased it and then I found out that is actually isn't. It's suppose to be Clinique's response to all the mineral makeup hype going on but it IS NOT a mineral foundation. I was a little ticked when I found out, but it is a pretty good foundation nonetheless. It covers well and lasts. The only issue i have with it is the colour match. I'm used to using MAC a lot for powders and foundation and clearly have been a little spoiled by their colour selection. I followed what the MA suggested (going against what I thought was a better match) and low and behold when I walked outside it was the wrong colour. Unless one of the 9 colours available matches my skin, I probably won't repurchase.
I got this in a gwp and i absolutely love it! it goes on sheer, but makes your lips look absolutely gorgeous! plump, subtle pink, and smooth. Lancome has yet to fail me !
I've used regular hypnose and it was a nice mascara, but i thought i'd try the waterproof since i don't have one. IT works awsome! It lengthens, seperates, and makes my lashes look false (which is super hard cuz they're short and straight). Although the price is a little hefty for a mascara, i would definately repurchase when i run out (although these seem to last me quite a while)
I tried this mascara after reading all the raves of it replacing some of the more expensive dept. mascaras, but it just did not do that for me. I love lancome's line, but for the $30 cdn it's pretty steep so i thought i would try this instead. It didn't do horribly, but it didn't work very well either. Didn't seperate very well (which i expected) and still clumped quite a bit when applied. Only plus was it didn't smudge too much by the end of the day. Was not too impressed with this, but for a drugstore brand, it's not too bad i guess.
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Lip Care Stick - Cocoa Butter
shanty 2/14/2007 5:58:00 PM
i love this lip balm! usually when i use lip balms my lips get chapped again after i use it, but this one leaves them so smooth even after ive used it. the biggest plus is supporting the fair trade cocoa used in it. I'm already on my third tube :)
I really love the casing for this, even though it does get finger prints everywhere. The price isn't too bad considering you get a refill, but i love the way this goes on my skin! it's so smooth and feels so nice! i love it, i even bought another one before it went away because it was LE. I would definately repurchase if it came back out.
Nothing special. I decided to try it, looking for a cheaper alternative to my lancome XL cils booster. Definately not up to par, but then it is almost 10 dollars cheaper. Its not horrible, but nothing great. It didn't lengthen at all, the volume seemed exactly the same if not less if i just applied my mascara alone. All it did was condition. I'm definately going to stick with my Lancome.
Lotions/ Creams -Vaseline - Healthy Body Complexion Moisturizing Lotion
shanty 8/17/2005 12:50:00 PM
Vaseline generally has great lotions, and this one is no exception. I have these slightly lighter patches of skin on my arms and this lotion has definately softened them. I tried so many different things and nothing worked, except this lotion! I have only used it a couple times and already i see a difference. Its not too heavy, absorbs very quickly. Definately repurchasing.
