I love this eyeliner. I wear it every single day. It's perfect for upper and lower lash line as well as my waterline...it doesn't budge. It is a good day time liner. I love Blacktrack but this is a little less harsh and the matte brown goes well with my blue eyes.
I love this shade! I think it's the perfect highlight or all over lid color. It is very soft and velvety...great shadow!
I had high hopes for this eyeshadow but I was left wanting a little more. It looks nice in the pan but it seems to be a little chalky to me and you can blend it into your skin and it can almost become invisible, at least on me and I have very fair skin. I'm not mad for buying it, I'm going to eventually buy all the permanent MAC shadows, this one is just not my favorite.
Conditioner -Suave - Professionals Almond & Shea Butter

I was very dissapointed in this conditioner. I love the Suave Rosemary Mint one but this one is nothing special. The conditioner is very very thin and isn't hydrating at all. My hair doesn't even feel soft when I rinse it out. I was really hoping to like this too :(
Shampoo -Suave - Professionals Almond & Shea Butter
ep3074 4/22/2010 9:24:00 PM
I don't feel like this shampoo "repairs" dry hair. I have normal hair to begin with and normal shampoo works fine with me but my hair is in the process of growing out so I'm trying to keep it hydrated. I love the Rosemary Mint Suave shampoo but this one I'm not so crazy about. It smells amazing in the bottle but the sent disappears almost immediately on your hair. Its just an ok shampoo, nothing special and not especially hydrating. Every time I went to Target to get it, it was sold out so when it finally came back in stock I bought it and was a little dissapointed.
I love Fix +. I admit, I only bought it because I heard all the rave reviews on YT and other places but I really think it's worth the money. I spray it on my face (when I remember :-/) after my foundation, blush, bronzer, finishing powder, basically before I do my eye and lip makeup. It really makes your face look put together. Sometimes if I'm hot from working outside or just get out of the shower I spray it on my face and I feel so refreshed. I spray it on my boyfriend's face when he gets out of the shower too, he likes it lol :) I also love the mist from the bottle, very fine. Lately, I've been using it as a mixing medium to use eyshadows wet and it works wonders that way as well.
Treatments -John Frieda - Daily Nourishment leave-in fortifying spray
ep3074 4/2/2010 9:35:00 PM
This spray works pretty well on me. Nothing amazing but nothing bad. It does make my hair more managable and smells very good. I always love John Frieda products so I'm glad this didn't dissapoint me but I didn't notice anything too "nourishing" about it.
Ok, I love this brush. I use it everyday for my foundation and it blends like a dream but ELF has got to start using some better glue or something, a lot of the brushes I own from them are awesome quality in the brush itself but the connector piece falls off the handle all the time. I've had this brush since around Christmas time and I had recently bought another one to use while one was being cleaned and now the orignal one is loose. I guess it's not a huge deal though because it was only $3. Great brush for foundation though!
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack
ep3074 4/2/2010 9:03:00 PM
I don't know what all the negative reviews are for, I love Blacktrack. I also don't understand when people say it's not pigmented. I think it's very dark black on the first swipe and when used with a good angled brush, like a Sonia Kashuk one from Target, it's so easy to make a nice straight line. You can also add more to make it winged, thick or thin and I even use it on my waterline. Worth the money to me.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - ColorIcon Palette in Lust [DISCONTINUED]
ep3074 4/2/2010 7:23:00 PM
This is the only Color Icon Palette from WnW that I own. I love it! WnW's makeup has really improved lately. The colors in this palette are pretty unique and versatile. I also love how they come with 3 matte and 3 shimmer/glittery colors. You can create an everyday look or a night time smokey eye. I'm so glad I bought this and it's a steal at $4.99.
My HG eyeshadow. I bought it when Ulta was having a BOGO sale and I just fell in love. Its the perfect neutral for my skintone. I wear it with Satin Taupe in the crease and sometimes I'll blend the two out with VS Private Beach. It's the perfect color for every day. I need to go get another one because I'm almost completely out.
Satin Taupe is one of my staple eyeshadows in my collection. It's the perfect neutral brown crease color. I wear this almost daily with Ulta Truffle on the lids. I love it too because if you just add a little black to your outer V it's a night time look. So easy. Not too shimmery and not too matte. I love love love this color and the formula as well.
Mascara -Rimmel - Volume Flash The Max in Extreme Black 003
ep3074 4/1/2010 9:57:00 AM
I love this mascara! I'm a sucker for mascara, especially Rimmel's so I always try the new ones when they come out. I used to use Glam Eye's all the time until I tried this. I love this on it's own, it makes my eyelashes full and thick (I'm grateful to already have long eyelashes) and when I want to make it a little more dramatic, I put a little Glam Eye's Flirt on the ends to make my lashes a little longer. Terrific mascara!
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
ep3074 4/1/2010 9:54:00 AM
I bought this because I heard it was comparible to the NARS orgasm/laguna duo. I've never tried the NARS but this just wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I usually use NYC Sunny as a bronzer/contour so when I first applied the E.L.F. bronzer, it was wayyy too much. You need a light hand when applying this and the only thing that bothers me about that is that it's a lot of work to get it right. I'd rather just stick with my Sunny bronzer because it's easier to work with. The blush is nice though, not too glittery and a good summertime color. I'll probably keep using the blush but not the bronzer.
I love this foundation! It does have a little shimmer, yes, but it's not so noticable until you're in direct light. It makes my face glowy and matches my skin tone perfectly. I absolutely LOVE the pump and glass bottle. The only this I wish this had was more coverage. Other than that, it's great.
