Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Maybelline Expert Wear Eyes Eyeshadow in Silken Taupe
hancam1030 6/22/2011 4:58:00 PM
I got this a few weeks ago when Walgreens was having 40% off all of their Maybelline products. I got this product as well as Covergirl's Tapestry Taupe to compare. I like this one a lot better! It really brightens my eyes and is a nice neautral everyday lid color. I wear it to work every day and get tons of compliments. Pigmentation isn't great, I agree. I have to pack it on but I still love it! It was originally $3.99 but like I said, I got it for 40% off but I would buy it again because its still a good price!
I love this product! So far I own four of these quads, and I love all the colors. Very pigmented, but I only use a little for just a wash of color on my lids. It makes a very good base over my TFSI or UDPP so any of my powder shadows pop and last all day! I will always buy these. Definatly recommend!
I love this blush! It isn't as pigmented as it looks, but it is still a pretty sheer pink blush with a bit of shimmer. It lasts all day and isn't powdery at all. I love Hard Candy's blushes.
Why does everyone love this stuff? It is disgusting. It is so oily and gross! My skin isn't oily either, so I know its not just my skin. I have the bottle sitting alone in a drawer and the other day I took it out and the container was covered in oil. Maybe I got a bad product but I don't know, I definately won't be buying it again to try it out. It smelt bad and seperated in the container. Gross. It made my foundation look could but I couldn't stand to put it on my face...Just...no.
I love this compact! It is so cute and very sturdy. I also love the eyeshadows that come in it. They are very smooth and velvety and pigminted. Although they can be a bit chalkey. They last all day with a good primer and have good color combinations. I definately recommend!!
I love this stuff! I always use it after I have applied all of my face make-up (concealer, foundation, pressed powder, bronzer, and blush) Yea I wear a lot of make-up haha. So after I apply all of my make-up, I use my Total Face Brush and apply this lightly all over my face. It evens up my skin tone and if I apply too much bronzer/blush, it lightens it up just a bit. LOVE THIS SO MUCH. I have only been on my first package for not even a month, and I have already hit major pan on it. AMAZING <333
Hair Color -L'Oreal - Natural Color Blackest Black 3C
hancam1030 1/29/2011 11:10:00 PM
I bought this product at big lots for less than 5 dollars a box. I had recently dyed my hair a dark brown black, so it wasn't totally black. My hair also still had red undertones from a previous color I had that was a dark brown with a tint of red. So I found this color, which said on the box it had cool undertones. And I just dyed my hair with this today, and I LOVE this hair dye. But instead of using the bottle, I just mix it in a hair dye bowel from Sally's and apply with a tint brush. I part my hair down the middle and use 1 box per side. I have to use two boxes because my hair is kinda long and very thick. The dye doesn't drip (much) which is really awesome because I didn't have to clean up too much. It smells decent, but I love the Colorsilk smell way more. The conditioner is amazing, and I like the fact it comes in a tube and I only had to use one of the two tubes I had. So now I can save my other one for next week or something. But the color is also amazing. It is pitch black, but it looks really natural. It doesn't look goth or anything and doesn't wash me out. I love it! Definitly recommend. Btw- I'm not the type to branch out to different hair dyes. Normally I would stay true to Colorsilk but couldn't pass this good deal for a color I really wanted at a low price. But it was worth the risk!
This stuff makes my make-up last all freakin day! It's so amazing. But it's very expensive. I already bought a back-up anyways. That's just how much I love it! It's way better than E.l.F's version. The bottle is way bigger and just works better in general. AMAZING.
Styling Products -Garnier - Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray

I have been looking for a product to enhance my natural born waves! And I finally found it. This stuff is amazing. All I do is spray it on my hair and scrunch while it's wet. The result is amazing wavy hair with no frizz. And it's all natural with the help of Garnier but no one has to know. Haha! Already bought a back-up of this! Almost done with the first bottle. It lasts so long! Took me almost 6 months to use it all. Don't use too much or hair will get crunchy.
Self Tanners -Banana Boat - Summer Color Sunless Lotion Deep Dark
hancam1030 1/3/2011 12:34:00 AM
Not too sure about this. I have only used it once and it turned me so dark I was on the verge of orange. But it was a dramatic color change. I wish it looked more natural. Maybe I will use this again once the summer comes. I like it because the lotion itself is dark, so you can see where you put it so you don't get streaks. It smells good, but then after a few hours you get that really strong self tanner smell. I didn't dare put this on my face. I didn't want to look like a total oompah loompah.
Bronzers -Hard Candy - So Baked Bronzer in Tropics
hancam1030 1/3/2011 12:30:00 AM
I used a whole package of this before I realized this color was way too dark for me. I even bought a back-up. Maybe that was because it was during the summer when I used this and now it's winter and I'm PALE as can be. I love this bronzer though. It has slight shimmer and is easily blendable. I may go back and get a lighter color for those fall/winter months. The only thing I don't like is the color of this one. It's too orange after the summer!
Pressed Powders -Sally Hansen - Cornsilk Shineless Classic Translucent powder
hancam1030 1/3/2011 12:27:00 AM
I use this every day. It controls oilyness so well! It gives my face that extra coverage when I finish applying all my make-up. Also makes it last a bit longer. I love this because there is no shimmer. It is all matte. I got this at Big Lots for like $2.50. Not bad at all!!! Love it.
Concealers -Revlon - Beyond Natural Concealer and Highlighters [DISCONTINUED]
hancam1030 1/3/2011 12:25:00 AM
I love this concealer! My color is light-medium. It looks slightly orange when I put it on with my concealer brush, but when I blend it in it looks totally natural and is just my color. I haven't tried out the highlighter side yet, but I bet it works just as good. The packaging is super cute. I got this for like $3.50 at Big Lots. I definately recommend this. It's very creamy and not cakey. It blends real easily and colors dark circles.
I love this blush. It is really pigminted so I always have to use a very light hand when applying it. The color isn't totally pink, has slight peach tones to it as well. Its very smooth and slightly powdery. It lasts all day and has no shimmer, which is a plus. And it's cheap! I love E.L.F :)
Eye Shadow -L.A. Colors - Shimmering Loose Eyeshadow (all colors)
hancam1030 1/3/2011 12:18:00 AM
Got these for a dollar at my local Dollar Tree! I only have four of them, but want to get more! Wish there was more color selection. I don't want to order online. Anyways, the colors I own are Honeysuckle, Radiant, Snow White, and Lollipop. I love all the colors. They are so pigminted and shimmery. They are also semi sheer as well, but make sure to use a primer so the color really pops. My favorite one is Honeysuckle. It's on the verge of a pinky ivory color. I love it. It's hard to describe. I always wear this alone just for a wash of color when I want to do a natural look. It lasts all day with just the right amount of shimmer. This is an amazing product. The packaging doesn't bug me either. The brush tip puts the right amount of product on for me. I don't care for it at all.
