Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Rosebud Salve
Jennifckerrr 6/30/2010 3:09:00 AM
I love the rose scent in this product. It's great as a lip balm and as an all over treatment for dry spots. The one thing I don't like is the tin packaging. Mine became extremely difficult to open after a while so hopefully Smith comes up with better packaging soon. I just don't like putting so much effort trying to open a damn balm. Also be careful with this product in the summer, it will melt.
I just purchased about 7 Jesse's girl loose powder shadows and Blue Moon is one of them that stands out the most. It's a very pretty royal blue shadow, I haven't gotten to wear it but I've tried it on and it looks amazing for smokey eyes. I would recommend using a base for this product. It's pretty amazing for the price.
Toners -Neutrogena - Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent

I'm so surprised by this product. I've been breaking out on my forehead lately and I've tried proactiv but it didn't do anything to help my breakout. Out of desperation, I picked this up while grocery shopping and within 2 weeks, my skin cleared up completely. I also use this in the morning to control the oil on my t-zone and it works so much better than many named brands I've tried from sephora. I only use this product on my t-zone so I'm not sure if it'll dry out your cheeks or not. I do recommend this for combination/oily skin with or without acne because it works wonders on oil control and clearing acne.
Primer/ Corrector -Clarins - Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch

It makes my pore less visible and smooths out my face very well for my foundation. This line is supposed to change the way the lights hits your face or using it to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and pores. It worked pretty well for me, but I'm still searching for a primer that can keep my t-zone matte.
Powder -Everyday Minerals - Foundation - Intensive formula [DISCONTINUED]

I've been using EM's foundation for years. It works so amazing yet it is affordable. I love their wide selection of blush and eyeshadows as well. The intensive formula has a great coverage, I have a lot of dark spots and it covers them very well. A little goes a long way, it's buildable and look very natural.
Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Mechanical Eyelash Curler

This product is dirt cheap yet it works as good as the pro curlers. I love it.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Wave™ (Power-Cleanser And Deep Clean Foaming Pads)
Jennifckerrr 5/11/2010 12:01:00 AM
I think it was a little over 10 dollars and comes with 7 days of cleansing pads. I'm not sure how much is the refill, because I never even got to finish my first pack! The cleanser broke after i think the 5th or 6th use. It was not the battery. I was pretty pissed. Now it's just a useless piece of junk in my bathroom. From my experience, I would not give this product any stars. The one star is for the minty feeling on my face when I washes my face, that's about it. It's a complete waste of money, really.
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo 6 Piece Brush Set

The brushes are so soft and easy to work with. The face brush is my favorite, I love how soft it feels and it blends my foundation and blush very well. It also comes with a cute little -brush holder and the whole set being eco-friendly is just great!
Concealers -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector [DISCONTINUED]
Jennifckerrr 5/10/2010 11:48:00 PM
I use this to conceal my dark circles. It works very well! It brightens my eyes and looks so natural. I love how it comes with a luminizer. I carry it in my makeup bag for touch ups, it's very convenient and great for the price.
It's simply the best eyelash curler out there. I used to heat my curler before I curl my lashes but I don't need to anymore with this curler. It's definitely worth the investment. I only wish it comes with a refill.
This is a very average mascara for me. It's not bad, but I wasn't all that impressed with it. Takes a few coats to get the volume I want and it get's clumpy after the first coat. Not a fan.
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner - Black

Out of my eyeliner collection, this is actually the best waterproof liner of the bunch. I had to try it to see what's the buzz and I was very surprised that it stayed put even after I swam. I'm glad I discovered this before summer, it's amazing!
This was my first tube of mascara in middle school. I repurchased quite a few tubes after until one day I've decided to give Diorshow a try, the rest is history. I love how much volume it gives my lashes, I needed the volume, hahaha. I didn't have clumping problems with this mascara and it actually worked very well for me. I recommend this especially if you're just starting to experience with makeup because this is a decent mascara and very easy to work with. If only it's waterproof.
Personally, this product isn't for me, but it deserves a 4 star for getting the job done and keeping my face smooth for my foundation. It helped my foundation to last but my skin prefers the Photo Finish light. I'm not sure if it's worth the price but haven't found any primer that can do a better job so I probably will stick to this product until an amazingly affordable primer comes along.
The packaging is so adorable! I love how her signature was on the lipstick. The lipstick itself is a very gorgeous pink color that is so versatile and fun to wear. It looks great with smokey eyes as well as with neutral eyes during the day.
