Foundations -Hard Candy - Just Face It - One Step Foundation
eq2008 3/29/2011 7:40:00 PM
I bought this at walmart for $7 and it was awesome when I put it on and it lasted all day. I have combination skin with very oily t zone. Love it and all but it makes me break out. This foundation is not oil free and it contains mineral oil and mineral oil clog my pores. While it's a great foundation, it's not so great for my skin.
Misc Beauty Tools -Olay - Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System
eq2008 3/20/2011 9:49:00 PM
I don't have the clarisonic that everyone is talking about because I simply cannot justify spending over $200 for a facial cleanser. I bought my prox cleansing system at CVS for $29.99 two weeks ago and have been using it everyday since. I only use it once a day after i take my makeup off with a makeup wipe. My skin has been looking amazingly glowy as soon as I started using this. I have less clogged pores on my chin and nose. I have a feeling that if I keep using this, i eventually won't have clogged pores. The battery cap is very tightly sealed and hard to open when changing batteries , but I think this is necessary because it has to seal away water from getting into the batteries. All in all, I have no complaints and I love how it makes my skin glows. If you have $30 to spare, go get one.
I would buy this gloss over and over. It smells awesome and taste sweet. I love the staying power and how it makes my lips look so smooth and juicy after applying. The only gloss that made my lips look this way is Lancome Juicy tubes but that $18. This gloss is 99% just like the juicy tubes by Lancome but the only difference is the price. If you like juicy tubes by Lancome, go to walmart and try one of these. It's $5 at walmart and it's a big tube (literally huge compare to your typical gloss)
I love the minty scent of this shampoo! It's invigorating and clean smelling. I didn't get the conditioner because it has mineral oil and it will make me break out on my back and shoulders. Anyway, the shampoo is great. I was surprise it lathers well because sulfate-free to me is like shampoo without lather. In the past, they usually just make my hair stiff and rough. This one is a keeper. I get mine at my local grocery store for $5.99. It's a bit pricier than your normal sulfate shampoos but it's well worth it.
Lotions/ Creams -Olay - Luscious Embrace Body Lotion

I love love love this new lotion!!! It's smells soooooo good and soooo moisturizing. I have been mixing jojoba oil with my body lotion to make it more moisturizing for my winter skin and now , I don't have to with this new lotion. It's have jojoba oil in it. oh did i mention, I love the scent??? it's smells amazing!
I don't normally shop at Bath and Body Works because the scents they have are just too fruity and strong for me, but oh I was wrong when I smelled this one. I was in the store to get something for a friend and end up getting the fragrance mist in country chic for myself. I love it! It smells like my Hanae Mori perfume in a body mist. I can use it for summer.
I love the packaging of all Hard Candy products. This one is by the far my favorite. Great blush and bronzer in one swirl. I bought this at walmart for $6.
Conditioner -Suave - Professionals Rosemary Mint Conditioner
eq2008 3/14/2011 8:36:00 PM
I would buy this again and again because of the scent. I love minty clean scent that it gives. It's not the best conditioner I've used, but I am using it because of the scent. Also, this doesn't cause breakouts on my shoulders. Some conditioners contain mineral oil that breaks me out.
I would buy BB creams again if it doesn't contain Mineral Oil because this one does and it made me break out. Mineral oil is the fifth ingredient in this product, so beware if you break out with products that contains mineral oil. Shades are very limited and I have this in Natural Beige (no. 23). When I first put it on, it look grayish on my skin and as it oxidizes throughout the day it looks darker and more yellow. The oil control is not there so I have to keep blotting my t zone and it does feel a little bit on the greasy side at the end of my day. Over all, I will keep searching for other bb creams that matches me better that doesn't contain any mineral oil. Love the concept of bb creams, this one just didn't work for me.
Blush -Physicians Formula - Happy Booster™ Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in rose
eq2008 1/27/2011 7:42:00 PM
Love this blush!!! I love the packaging, the scent and the color payoff. You have to use a light hand with this one otherwise you'll look like you got slap in the face lol.... I got this at Rite Aid. Paid $11.95 for it and its going to last me forever because a little goes a long way.
Eyeliner -Physicians Formula - Eye booster eyeliner + serum
eq2008 1/27/2011 7:37:00 PM
Awesome product! I got sucked into this new eyeliner because it says "high tech japanese formula" on the packaging. I just got this yesterday so i really don't know if the serum in this is going to make my lashes grow or not, hence the four stars. Regardless, I love everything about this eyeliner. I can make a precise thin line with this pen and most importantly it stays on until I take it off at night. Everything smudges on my eyes except this and this other eyeliner I bought from Japan. I bought this at Rite Aid yesterday and it was Buy one get one 50%off. Original price was $10.95. I am going to check out more of Physicians Formula makeup soon. They are improved. Love my new happy booster blush too but that's another review.
Concealers -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector [DISCONTINUED]
eq2008 1/16/2011 12:44:00 AM
Love the illuminator side of this concealer because it actually corrects my undereye circles and doesn't look cakey or cake up. The concealer side i use for blemishes or any redness around my nose. Great concealer to take when I travel because it's two in one. But I think they are discontinuing this product if I am not mistaken. I go to target and walmart looking for it and never can find this.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Lemon Drop SPF 15
eq2008 1/16/2011 12:34:00 AM
Of all the EOS lipbalm i owned ( I have all three), this is the only one I can say works. It actually moisturizes my lips. Love the scent and also the fact that it has spf 15 is great.
Smudges everywhere! I look like a raccoon the instant I put this on and it's hard to take off at night.
Very sticky and tacky consistency. I am afraid I am tugging the skin around my eyes so much applying this that I am going to get wrinkles instead of dark circles which I rather have. It's in a jar packaging that I hate because it's just going to get dried up eventually. It's much too dry for my undereye eventhough it does cover up my dark circles but again, its making my undereye look dry and old with dark circles.
