Scrubs -The Body Shop - Vitamin E Cream Exfoliator
EmberAmber 12/23/2010 1:43:00 AM
I recommend using this once or twice a week to moisturize and exfoliate your skin at the same time. I have no complaints. I suggest wearing it like a mask for 5-10 minutes and then massage your face before rinsing off.
Cleansers -The Body Shop - Camomile Waterproof Eye Make-Up Remover
EmberAmber 12/23/2010 1:41:00 AM
It does the job, but I wouldn't buy it again. I miss my stupidly expensive Makeup Forever Makeup Remover. I have learned that the best way to take off makeup is to put the product on a Q-tip and wipe the lashes clean. This product irritated my eyes and it burned a little. It took a couple more squirts of the product to take it all off, even then some of my waterproof mascara was still on! It's ok, no big deal. Not good enough for waterproof mascara.
Cleansers -The Body Shop - Nutriganics Foaming Facial Wash
EmberAmber 12/23/2010 1:38:00 AM
My face felt soft after washing, but ten minutes later my face felt super dry. If you have oily or combination skin I recommend it.
WOW! I have this in Steely, Lofty, Nervy and Secretive. Every product I love ends up being discontinued. I saw that the shadow paints were being discontinued at Walgreens and were on sale for 2 bucks each, and I figured, I bet I might like them. Oh boy was I right. Easy application. The pigment was strong but not ridiculous. Incredible texture. It looked great on and stayed in place. WOW!
I like the tingly feeling on my lips. It smells good. Tastes kinda bad. Color is sheer pink but the color is very visible in a good way. I love this product so much.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - HIP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Midnight Blue
EmberAmber 12/20/2010 4:41:00 AM
WOW! Easy to apply. Barely any smudging and it stays in place. I prefer to use my own eyeliner brush over the one they gave me. I used this gorgeous midnight blue over the black cream eyeliner and got this super cool rocker look. I got compliment all night and the pictures of that night are still receiving positive comments. And to think I got this at Walgreens buy one get one free sale. It was like an early Christmas.
Eye Shadow -Victoria's Secret - Heidi Klum Exotic Jewels Eyeshadow Palette

Hidden Palace colors are beautiful and the packaging is too. I did the one swipe trick before buying and it is highly pigmented. I am really impressed. If I wore eye shadow more I'd buy this again, but since I rarely wear eyeshadow I might have this for years and when I run out it'll be probably discontinued like everything I love. The case I'll keep forever. It is a treasure. I highly recommend this.
Eyeliner -Sephora - doe eyed Felt Eyeliner in Black
EmberAmber 12/20/2010 4:29:00 AM
It smudges off ease. Easy application. Nice colors. Not much different from the Kat von D line. It's cheaper which makes it better.
Easy application. Nice colors. Easily smudged off. It was first introduction to liquid eyeliner. Well, 2nd introduction. The first was an ink and it turned me off because it got in my eyes. With this product, what intrigued me was the marker pen. So easy to apply! I loved it, but it's not much different from the Sephora line, which makes Doe Eyed better because it's cheaper.
Eyes -BeneFit Cosmetics - She Laq ] [DISCONTINUED]
EmberAmber 12/20/2010 4:23:00 AM
I went to Sephora to ask them to let me sample it. I have very sensitive eyes, they have very little pigment because they are gray. So I can only wear waterproof mascara. I recently bought a Sephora Sampler of their best seller mascaras and they are not all waterproof. Total bummer. When I used the She Laq sample I used my finger and lightly wiped it on my lashes. 1. Don't ever use your finger, it burns. 2. My mascara did not smudge. I am on the fence about buying it because it's so expensive for such a little bottle. It works, so when I receive a lovely Sephora discount coupon I'll buy it. I'm just worried that if it burns my finger, what is it doing to my lashes. God forbid I lose them!
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
EmberAmber 12/20/2010 4:13:00 AM
WOW! I applied it around noon and went to a wedding ceremony. At the wedding reception I went to the bathroom to check my face around 8pm, my makeup looked fresh and I looked well rested despite all the drinks I had. How is that even possible? Magic in a bottle! All I had to reapply was my gloss because I was eating so much food. I recommend it to everyone.
Eyeliner -Jordana - Fabu Liner Liquid Eyeliner Pen

So sad. It smudged off easily and the color was a faded black. Not even worth a dollar.
Eyeliner -Stila - Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
EmberAmber 12/20/2010 4:02:00 AM
I got this in a value pack for cheap. I didn't use it for many months and finally out of the blue I decided to use it. HOLY SWEET MOTHER OF GOD! I went out in the freezing cold and my eyes teared something awful. I went home excited to see how ridiculous and raccoon-ish I looked. Nope. It did not move. It did not smudge. It stayed in place as promised. This has to be the best quality liquid eyeliner in the whole world. it's the next best thing to tattooing your eyelids. AND it is so easy to apply.
I have Kirk (Favorite. Sheer Beige), James (Favorite. Sheer Fuchsia), Eric & David. I also have a sample size of Timothy. Timothy was free and it is all his fault that I am addicted to this line. Maybe it's a placebo effect, but I cannot shake the feeling that the promised pheromones are working in the gloss. It's a nice texture, not too sticky. The colors are just right and have yet to find a color that doesn't look good on my lips. I love to apply them alone or over my lipstick. When I don't want to wear anything on my lips I dab a little on my eyelids. I am in love with my pocket rockets!
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Night Blooming Jasmine
EmberAmber 12/20/2010 3:38:00 AM
Praise the Lord! They brought back a discontinued scent that I love! Fragrance Top Notes: Lilac, Jasmine Fragrance Mid Notes: Violet Leaves, Freesia Petals, Spring Rain Accord Fragrance Base Notes: Orris, Musk It is such a happy and alluring scent. You can also purchase Sabon's Delicate Jasmine, it smells very similar. In the shower I use Sabon scrub and after I use the cream moisturizer. It goes well together.
