Horrible and thick formula, Gave me short spider lashes. Tried to use a light hand with it to make it work, that seemed to be better for my lower lashes. But I need a mascara that performs beautifully on my upper lashes too. Wont repurchase. Update 03/12/10 Wow! This mascara is really really bad. It actually weigh down my lashes terribly. Makes them poker straight at first application, and when I try to build: Heavily downweighted eyelashes.
I really love my NYX eyeshadows, but this color made me look sick. Well, I dont think every shade is for me. I gave Flamingo to a browneyed friend, as I think it would suit her better.
Eye Makeup Remover -Mary Kay - Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover
Leylani 1/15/2010 4:39:00 PM
This is the best makeup remover I have EVER used. I have only had it for three days, but really wish I didnt wait until now to get it. Finally... this is from now on my HG makeup remover. Update 04/01-10 I think this product is overpriced. Maybe because Mary Kay need a lot of money to buy pink cars for her SA`s. Removing one lippie :-(
The only liquid foundation I have liked until now, is Lancome Teint Idole. But, it did not have the perfect shade for me (Beige Diaphane was close, but a bit too dark and tan). So I have been searching high and low for a similar foundation with a colormatch. With Second Skin I finally found it :-D I`m a NC25, and 060 Sand is my perfect shade. Second Skin works great for me. It lasts for the whole day without any budging or blotchiness (after setting it with Maybelline Dream mat powder 05 Apricot Beige). I will definately repurchase this foundation when I run out of my first bottle. Love it!
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Guess by Marciano 2008

Guess by Marciano (2008) .... Bought it unsniffed after reading these reviews. Lovely scent, but it has absolutely no stayingpower on me. Maybe 2 hours and then its gone. I bought a big tester bottle, and only paid 22 $ for it. Maybe there is something wrong with the bottle, I dont know. Update: When i cannot smell it on my wrists anymore, I just breath on them and there it is!!! Wearing very close to my skin. Upgrading to five lippies.
Let this fragrance dry down a bit before you judge it. I almost threw away the sample vial i have, but oh how i love the middle notes and drydown of this one. Ignore the top notes please, if you dont like them. They are a quite harsh chemical jasmine and mislead you a lot when it comes to the glourious and warm future of this scent. I have come to love Alien a lot now, and just ordered myself a mini (6 ml) of it. As i just need a tiny drop of it to last me all day (great stayingpower), that one are going to last for a while. I like the bottle, it makes me think of really cute penguins (not aliens) :-D
I got five vials of this (1.8 ml EDT each) in the mail a couple of hours ago. We dont find Aquolina in the stores in my country, so this is my first time to smell it. From the online descriptions and reviews , i had a vague idea about the smell. Now, it is two hours since i put it on, and the drydown have started. Im in love, and will write more when i have had more time to get to know this gem. Update 10/24: I love this one a lot and are going for the full size.
Very useful as a matte bronzer/facecolor for medium/fair skin. Try using Latte as a neutral eyeshadow also. It is very nice, and i think i will use it mostly as an everyday e/s :-) Update 02.06.2010: I`m going to run out of this one as I`ve been reaching for it almost every day as a bronzer/facecolor this winter. Very forgiving, and I love its versatility as a neutral eyeshadow too. Definately repurchase!
I adore this scent. I really do. This is right up my alley. Prada has everything i love about perfume and I may have found my signature scent with this one, But... im not leaving L de Lolita Lempicka yet. I have to sniff about it... And BTW im pretty sure there are no rules that stops me from loving both scents :-) YaY...!
After I got Stone, my other blushstuff have been mostly just sitting there. This is probably the first blush I repurchase b/c I used it all up. For me, it is the best all over face color I ever had. I use it pretty much in the same way as I apply bronzer, and it goes on like a dream. Great stayingpower. It is very similar to Daydream from Everyday Minerals, which I also love.
Eye Shadow -Everyday Minerals - Ginger Peach Eye Shadow

I love the color of this eyeshadow! It is perfect for my blue eyes. But i wish this one had the pearl finish, not shimmer. The shimmer is too much for me, so i cant use it a lot.
This is grrreat used as a base for eyeshadows. It is matte, easy to apply and makes the e/s go on smooth and evenly. Does not alter the color of the e/s or the finish of it, just makes the color more intense. A very clean and "mess-free" eyeshadow base to carry around in my makeup bag. Only four lippies because i had to buy the NYX sharpener, as it was too fat for the three i already had (for big pencils).
Fragrances -Lolita Lempicka - L de Lolita Lempicka
Leylani 9/29/2009 12:06:00 PM
How i love this perfume! The cinnamon, the citrus, the salt, the vanilla, the solar (and i can smell some caramel!), i love every nuance in its warm and comforting precense. I will never stop using L de Lolita Lempicka. What a coincident that this perfume also have my initial letter as its name. That is just perfect. For the first time in my life, i can say that i truly adore a perfume. As great as it is, it also have to be used very lightly. This stuff is very potent, with just one tiny spritz the scent is with me for 24 hours. The bottle is beautiful. And i think the light brown liquid in it resembles oceanwater captured inside of "something" at the beach for weeks and months pretty good ;-)
Eye Shadow -NYX - Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil - Cottage Cheese
Leylani 9/19/2009 5:55:00 PM
I bought this to use as an easy on the go solution to e/s primer. At the moment when i ordered it, my online supplier were out of "milk". Cottage Cheese went on very blotchy and greasy. When i applied my eyeshadow over it, the result came out very uneven. Based on my experience with this one i would never even concidered gettin "milk". But im so glad i did, it completely rocks. I will never buy Cottage Cheese again. It is probably going to end up in the bin, as there is no use for it.
I love NYX for bringing this blush out! The stayingpower really is amazing, It is not matte, but gives a subtle glow. Absolute HG blush for me after using it everyday for three weeks now. Love it! :-D
