I bought this after the MU placed it on me and I saw a big difference. What I love about this, is that I can wear it without having to put on any foundation. I use mac's prep and prime and then put some concealer under my eyes and it works. Might have to do some blending to make sure that it doesn't stick out, but its worth it. It doesn't get cakey on me and you can't tell that I'm wearing any. I would recommend and I would buy it again!
I bought this brush a cuople of years ago, when ELF first started to come out. Back then, the rumor was that this was going to be a line sold at Nordstroms----NOT! The bristles are hard and the handle is ready to break off. The only reason I have it, its to have it as a back up. When I wash my brushes, the face brush takes a couple of days to dry. I wouldn't buy it again and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone either...even though its just a buck!
Hair Removal -Nair - Hair Removal-Face-Sensitive Formula

I bought this to remove upper lip hair. For some odd reason, this product would work one time but not the next., I would use it every two weeks. I'd have to keep it on for a bit longer than recommended for it to work. Well, the last time I put this on, I left it on for 10 mins (which is the normal amount of time that I leave this product on) and it made my upper lip really red and sensitive. Now we are at five days later and there's still a rough, dry spot there. I've been slathering on the cocoa butter, but its not working. Not only that, but it didn't even remove the hair! This is the last time that I'll buy any of these deliporatory cream. I'm so tired of having to be "careful" when I use this. I'm going to have to have my upper lips threaded instead (and boy does it hurt!).
This color is probably the color that comes closest to my lip color, so needless to say that I love it. Blends in very well, and it lasts a long time.
Initially, I loved this lipglass. But, after a while, I realized how often I had to put it on. It doesn't last long! I think what I love about it is the tingling feeling and fresh smell. Also, it is a great color. It gives my lips a bit of color and shine to them. Although, I'm not sure if I'd buy it again.
I don't remember when I decided that I needed to fill in my eyebrows, but I didn't have sparse spaces. I think the MU artist said something to me. I love it! It completes my look and makes me look polished. It's very easy to put on and its hard to mess it up. Just make sure that you use short strokes. I don't know how long this should last, but I've had it for five months already and I have yet to run out of it. Just yesterday my aunt thought that I just had my eyebrows done and I had to tell her that it has been two weeks since I last did them. I'm definitely going to buy another one, when this one is done.
I've been using this for quite some time now. During the summer, I use the lotion and in the winter I use the cream. I love that its has SPF and has antioxidants. It makes my skin feel smooth and supple, so that my makeup goes on smoothly. I've tried other brands because this can be expensive, but I haven't run into anything close to this. The smell of cucumbers is a plus!
This is one of my first MAC lipsticks ever. I've must have gone thru ten of them already. LOL I will admit that for the past three years, I've been wearing lipglass only, so I kinda put this to the side. I found it today and I'm in love again. I'm NC 45 and it's basically a slightly darker than nude brownish lipstick on me. My lips do have a reddish tint to them. I love that I can throw some pinkish lipglass on there to make it a pink nude or brownish gloss for a brown nude. It feels great on my lips and it does last a long time.
The MA recommended this when I went to purchase a pigment that I have yet to wear. I finally pulled it out a couple of weeks ago bc I heard that it made colors pop....whooo...I have yet to put it down. It works great as a base for my eyeshadows and it goes on smoothly bc of this. I did notice that it was a bit rougher to put on when I don't have any lotion on, so you should put on some lotion for an easier application.
Lotions/ Creams -Matrix - Matrix Biolage Body Hydrating Body Balm

I'm actually using my fifth tube of this wonderful lotion. My hairstylist uses Matrix Biolage products on my hair and I always loved the smell of it. When I saw it at Harmons for $4, I knew that I had to try the body lotion. I love that it dissolves quickly into my skin especially when I'm always in a rush and when I don't have time to apply my cocoa butter creme. While it doesn't give my skin the same shine that cocoa butter does, it does leave my skin soft and smooth and smelling fresh. I actually went on ebay and bought a bunch of them, when I found out that Harmons no longer sold them.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Liquid Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Formula
chica21608 11/9/2008 2:04:00 PM
I've been using this product for over ten years and continue to go back to it....even when I try something else, I end upgoing right back to it (which means that the other products do not work as well as this). One pump takes away all the dirt and makeup from your face without overdrying your face. One bottle lasts me a year....so its all worth the $8 that I just spent for it.
What attracted me to this cleanser was the fact that it says "all natural anti-oxidants." The smells is okay and it does was its says.....deep cleans and leaves skin moisturized, but it doesn't remove all my eye makeup. It does claim to remove makeup, but I always wake up the next day with mascara residue under my eyes. When I used my normal liquid Neutrogena facial cleansing product, I never had this problem. I love the way it made my skin feels, which is nice and moisturized...as if I already put moisturizer on. I am going to continue to use it until its finished (I'm kind of OCD like that), but I won't buy it again.
Great stuff! I really didn't need this, but fell into the pretty packaging. I've been using St Ives Apricot scrub and now I love this one better! The scrubs are tiny and feel good against my skin. It almost doesn't feel like a scrub because its so fine, but when I wash it off, it leaves my skin plump, fresh, and moisturized. If you scrub it on too hard, it will give you a reddish tint to your skin (like you just worked out). It's definitely more expensive than your regular drug store scrub, but it actually feels like you just got a facial. I will definitely buy it again!
I bought this lipglass over 5 years ago and I continue to buy it when I run out. It looks bright in the tube, but it turns out to be a nice coral color thats warm enough not to be bright.
This eyeshadow barely shows on my eyelids. I'm an NC 45 in MAC powders. I have a reddish tone skin color that turns bronze-like in the summer. Many times, people think that I have a tan year round, when I don't. So, when I put this on, all you really see is the pretty shimmery colors of the pencil. I've worn it with MAC's Bronze eyeshadow and to me they are just about the same color. The only difference is that one comes in a pencil form. Also, it doesn't last long and it tends to smear a lot. I would not buy it again.
