Mascara -Maybelline - Sky High Curves Extreme Length and Curl [DISCONTINUED]
loovexemilyy 5/16/2009 4:42:00 PM
I had been using CoverGirl Lash Blast - curl killer! I was looking for something non water proof, that would hold curl and make my lashes look nice. This is that mascara. My eyelashes are normally just stick straight. Nothing special. So, I normally have to curl my eyelashes everytime I apply my mascara. I curled my eyelashes and put this on.. From what I notice, the formula is really light and non clumpy (mind you, I had just bought it a few hours prior) It was GREAT. It left my curl perfectly intact and my lashes were evenly spaced and non clumpy. Yay! Until I get more Lancome Hypnose, this will have to do.

Love this product! I had been plagued with the never ending chapped lips of winter, only to become more chapped with the use of Burt's Bees. This stuff made my lips normal again! No scent, and goes on very smooth. Yay.
Lotions/ Creams -Suave - Naturals Tropical Coconut body lotion

I love this product. I am so sad that they no longer have it in stores anymore! Pros: 1. The smell - Oh, amazing. Not exactly like coconuts, but a nice, light, not-in-your-face scent. It's perfect for summer! 2. The price - Well, for when they sold it atleast. Huge bottle with tons of product for cheap! Cons: 1. Consistency - This lotion wasn't exactly moisturizing, it had a very watery runny feel.
LOVE. At first, I HATED this product. I was so mad about having my parents waste like 10 bucks on mascara. Anyway, I've discovered a few tricks. Apply the primer first, let dry, then curl the lashes, then apply the black. BAM. Amazingly long gorgeous lashes. My only complaints... 1) You are really wasting money, you don't get nearly as much product that you pay for. 2) The black does not cover the primer all the way. 3) If you are going for a natural look, this is def. not for you. You can easily tell that you are wearing mascara. Very, easily.
Skincare - Face -Stridex - Triple Action Pads, Alcohol Free

I just tried this product yesterday, and overall I'm pretty pleased. (I have oily/acne prone skin, and break out mainly on my chin) I used this and it cleaned my face, but, after my face dried from being soaked from the liquid, my face felt tight, and it still does whenever I use the pad, it feels like I have a weird film or something on my face. Odd.
This product is okay. I love the tingly feeling, and it's very refreshing. However, my only complaint is, this doesn't help chapped lips at all, but makes them more chapped. Even when my lips aren't chapped and I apply this my lips start to get flaky. Icky.
Certain Dri=Love. This stuff works like a charm!
I couldn't live without it. Secret Clinical disappointed me, majorly. This is so much better, and half the price!
Pros: (If applied correctly) NO sweat. NADA. Shirts smell like I never even wore them. My arms stay dry, completely. At the end of the day, even my invisible solid is dried on from when I applied in the morning, not drenched off.
Cons: Put too much on, good luck... This literally feels like someone is sticking pins and needles into to your armpits and taking them back out. My armpits itch like crazy, and sometimes I'll wake up and they will be all red and sore. Not good. Plus, the bottle had a little leakage problem. But oh well.
Overall: Pros outweigh the cons. Definitely worth a shot! It has given me so much more confidence. Try it, I was NOT disappointed!
Foundations -Revlon - Custom Creations Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

I got this product to match my summer, come and go, tan. Overall, I must say I'm impressed. I do notice a slight difference between 1, 3, and 5. I put this on with a foundation brush and it looks flawless. However, I have oily skin, and this doesn't exactly go well. I'm not sure if this is oil free, so I have no clue if it's helping. Anyways, I don't think the colors actually get darker, between 1 and 3, the only difference I noticed was that the 3 was beige. (I bought the Fair/Light bottle) Eh, it's not my HG but it's worth a shot.
I only have a sample of this, but I LOVE it. It lengthens my lashes but doesn't make them clumpy whatsoever. The formula is so light, but it does wonders. Love, love, love it. For the price it is worth it.
Eh, I've heard so many rants/raves about this mascara. I think it gets to much hype, it's not that fabulous. It doesn't clump very much, makes my lashes look long and clump free. But after a while, my lashes sort of deflated. Oh well, pretty decent for the price.
Love, love, love this. I love the regular Apricot Scrub, and picked this up by accident. But I am glad I did. This seems to be a little creamier than the scrub, but still exfoliates just as well. My skin feels so soft, and it looks brighter and alot healthier. My skin is very oily and gross, but it makes it look FABULOUS. Try it!
Self Tanners -Neutrogena - MicroMist Tanning (Medium 2 shades darker)
loovexemilyy 7/25/2008 7:04:00 PM
I love this! Sprays on clear, but turns into a natural looking tan. My only complaint (but I guess this is to be expected of a spray tan..) is that when I sweat, color comes off on my bra and shirt. Ew! I applied sunscreen when I went outside, and if I just rubbed my skin, the color would crumble off! I also put a band-aid on my arm. I took it off, and there goes the color with the adhesive. Oh, joy. This is good for face. Not so much for body..
I never really use masks all that often. I used this just hours ago. Before it was completely dry I felt my skin get tight and burn. I washed it off. And every single area I put it was bright red. I was shocked. I have no where near sensitive skin, at all! When I touch the areas I put the mask on, it feels warm, as apposed to the areas where I didn't, and they feel normal. It feels like I got sunburn. Oh well. Whatever.
I have PPP skin, but got a spray tan and was pretty dark. I wanted something to compliment my new, temporary, darker complexion.. I picked this up at Wal-Mart because it was dirt cheap and I needed something in a hurry. I got home and tried this on (after foundation, and I applied with my own brush) and it looked great! This is def. more of a blush than a bronzer, but the colors blend so well together and give you a sun-kissed blush. It is a bit shimmery for my taste And this is really easy to over-do. But if I put too much on my face looks dirty.. Or just like I'm wearing way to much makeup. Overall, I'm glad I found this... You can't beat the price. I am suprised at how much I actually like this product. You have nothing to lose if you try this. I just hope I still like it after the tan goes away.
Self Tanners -L'Oreal - Sublime Bronze Gelee in medium deep
loovexemilyy 7/13/2008 8:19:00 PM
So far this summer, I haven't had the time to get out in the sun alot. I used this today after I got out of the shower. I applied 4 coats. (Because I know I won't have time tomorrow to re-apply..) Texture: Nice feel. Creamy-ish texture. Thicker than body lotion. Color: Bronze/dark orange. With tons of sparkles.. Application: Went very smoothly on my freshly shaved legs, but looked very streaky on my arm hairs. (But it dried and looked fine) Now: My arms and legs look great! Very nice and natural looking. Pros: Great color, lots in bottle, shimmer flecks, smells nice. Cons: I put this stuff on hours ago, and I still feel afraid to touch anything because I feel sticky!
