This eyeshadow quad blows it is very unpigmented and I feel that you don't get enough eyeshadow for your money is it just me or do the shadows in this seem smaller than other brands. The only one that is half way decent is the lighter color. Other than that this thing is junk.
Lip Gloss -Rimmel - The Morning After Kiss Off Lip Gloss

I like this lipgloss, it has very pretty blue-pink sparkles in it. I can only wear this on top of other colors because my lips are very pigmented. I love how the tube has a flat bottom so it stands on its own. The only thing I don't like about it is it has a very strong rose smell, which I don't like and I am not usually too sensitive to smells but it is very strong. Other than that I like it a lot.
I love this foundation, it's awesome. I used Colorstay before this which I still like but I like this much better. The small shimmer flecks in the foundation brighten up my skin and make it look nice and smooth.They arn't chunks of glitter, it's just a hint of shimmer. I would say this is a medium-full coverage, it isn't as full as Colorstay but it gives enough. It is a bit expensive for drugstore $14 but if you get it BOGO it's not too bad and it really is a good quality foundation, I would buy it over and over again.
I don't really like this mascara. It's okay but I don't really see any volumzing or lengthening properties about it. It also flakes a bit too at the end of the day. It's okay very basic, from now on for volumizing I will stick to Maybelline Full n' Soft.
I am not a fan of this stuff. I thought I was going to love this with many good reviews but I hate it. I actually find it harder to apply than liquid liner with a brush. It's too long and floppy for me. I find it hard to apply a thin line and hard to transition to a thicker line. The other thing I hate is I bought it for $8 which isn't too bad but you get absolutely nothing in there 1.5 mL and I can tell it's bone dry because to get any liner on the tip you have to shake it up every time. I think the tip soaks up a lot of the liner. Overall I'm really disappointed.
Styling Products -Beyond The Zone - Turn Up the Heat

I really like this, so far I can't actually tell if it has prevented split ends but I do feel like it makes my hair very shiny. I also think it smells good, like gummy bears. It has a very strange texture to it not liquidy almost like oil coming out of a spray bottle. The only real con about this is if you use too much it will make your hair oily but other than that it's great.
These are okay but I have found I only actually like these blushes when I use my skunk brush. When I first bought this I hated it, because I was using just a cheap ol' blush brush. But when I use my skunk brush it works okay. I actually don't like this color too much though, it's too orangey for me. But I usually find that peaches look too orange on me anyway. The powder is nice and fine and easy to blend but the packaging kind of blows. It's an okay blush I don't love it or hate it, just kind of in between.
I need this moisturizer to survive, especially in the winter time. My face is so dry, especially for someone as young as I am. My face will flake and I have tried so many different moisturizers and this is the best. I first actually bought the Hydra Quench for normal to dry in August because it came with two other trial sizes of other products for the same price. But when I finished up that a couple of weeks ago I decided I needed the Hydra Quench Rich. It is so great super expensive but for me it is worth it. It's like medicine for my skin.
This shampoo is nothing extraordinary but it is a good cheap shampoo that gets the job done. It cleans my hair well without making it dry and makes it nice and shiny too. It is also really cheap I got a 32 oz pump bottle for only $3.00, who knows how long that will last me. It smells nice but it is a very light scent, it smells very herbal. But, even if you don't like the scent it really doesn't matter because it doesn't linger. Overall a good cheap shampoo that I would definitely recommend.
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'n' Soft waterproof mascara (vitamin E)

This is the best mascara ever, Max Factor 2000 calorie used to be my favorite, but this is actually better. It gives a similar effect but it does not flake as much and is soft not hard or crunchy at all. Full n soft gives lashes a nice long and full look. It can be used to look natural or used with many coats for a false lash effect. It also will not clump no matter how many coats used which is uncommon among volumizing mascaras.
I know these are supposed to be really hard to find but I had no trouble, in fact I never even went looking for it. I just happened upon it one day and decided to buy it. I really love this brush, it does a really good job of blending everything really well. It gives liquid foundation a great finish, applies finishing powder well, applies just the right amount of blush and bronzer, and highlights beautifully. The only thing that I find bad about this brush is it takes a little bit longer to apply foundation than it would with a regular foundation brush and if you don't wash it a lot it after using liquid foundation it can tend to make things look a bit cakey. But it is still worth it, besides that it is perfect. I have never used the MAC 187 because I can't justify spending almost $50 on a brush, but I am very happy with my Sonia Kashuk skunk brush.
This stuff is awesome. I like full coverage foundations but I HATE the masky feel many of them tend to give. It is a very thin liquid that is surprisingly full coverage. I also love that they have really pale colors too. I am extremely pale especially in the winter with strong yellow undertones. So I tend to have a hard time finding a pale drugstore foundation without any pink in them. But the color buff is great, very pale and yellow. Some people find it hard to blend, but I don't have a problem with blending it. I also kind of like the smell, though most will probably hate it because it smells a bit like paint. The only thing I don't like is the packaging, it is difficult to use, but other than that it's fantastic.
This is the first NYX lipgloss I have purchased and I really like it. I bought it on a whim, and I am really glad I did. It is very creamy, not too thick or thin, really the texture is perfect. Which I find strange, I tend to stick to lipsticks because I usually hate glosses textures. I smells nice, like sour fruity candy and doesn't have much of a taste. The color is gorgeous, a light cool pink. The thing I really like about it is that it's a cream rather than with shimmer. I really love it an will definitely buy more NYX glosses.
Treatments (Eye) -Clarins - eye revive beauty flash

I have crazy dry skin especially around my eyes. They crack really bad in the winter. But this stuff really does help me a lot. It is really moisturizing and if you use it regularly it actually does help reduce the appearance of dark circles. I have pretty bad dark circles and I can tell when I don't use it regularly they are more noticeable. It is super expensive, I believe $50 but it is good stuff.
Lip Treatments -Clarins - Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm
haleyhay 10/7/2009 4:18:00 PM
This stuff is amazing. I have super dry lips, nothing really keeps them moisturized but this stuff seems to do the trick. Because it is so expensive I don't use this all day long just once a day or twice if my lips are really dry. I'll put on some Blistex throughout the day just to maintain moisture. But it works really well at balancing moisture in your lips. It smells good kind of a light rose smell. It is a really thick consistency with a light pink tint. It is really expensive, but it works so well it really is worth it.
