Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Tickle Me Pink Brush Set
ultagrl 1/9/2004 2:24:00 PM
These brushes are totally cute! I just received these for christmas, and it really does matter using quality brushes. These brushes are so soft. My favorite brush is the crease brush, it really applies the eye shadow easily into the crease area making it foolproof. These brushes are a must for anyone!
Thought I would try a new mascara since I just ran out of my favorite, Cliniques Naturally Glossy Mascara. And it was on sale at CVS, so that helped persuade me to pick this up too =) Well this is a great mascara! And a lot cheaper than my Clinique. It does what it says, makes my lashes look really full and they are certainly not crunchy. The mascara also seperates, defines and does not look spidery. UPDATE 4/1/04: The only fault I find with this mascara is that it smudges and i end up with racoon eyes by the end of the day :(
My new HG in eye shadow. This color is gorgeous and I think would work for any skintone. It is a pretty shimmery brownish bronze. A great neutral. I love this as a crease color. Packaging is cute, but hard to open. Definetly will repurchase.
Wow! I just picked up this color and it is so pretty! It is a pinky peach with gold glitter. The only negative of this shadow is the gold glitter goes everywhere! But besides that this is one pretty shade of eye shadow. Just wearing it in the crease and lid gives you a fresh open eyed look. Add mac teddy e/k and you've got the perfect look. Highly reccomend this e/s for any collection. UPDATE 4/1/04: The only problem with this e/s is that the shadow and the sparkles get everywhere! and it is not a practical e/s for day use.
This is the only Clinique l/g I own. I picked up the color Honey Bee when I saw it featured in Allure last year and looked very pretty on the model. I agree, this is a really nice color. It is a great color if you are trying to acheive a nude lip. This color is the only neutral lip color I can wear without looking washed out. I am a NW20. The smell of these l/g doesn't bother me. Not long lasting, but I don't find any l/g long lasting these days.
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Wet Shine Diamonds Liquid in Pink Carats

Don't be afraid of this color! Yes it is bright pink in the tube, but goes on a sheer cool toned hot pink with silver sparkles. Very lovely for the summer months. The gloss is very thin in consistency which means you need to reapply often, but this color is so worth it.
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Wet Shine Diamonds Liquid in Luminous Lilac

I love this color WSDL! It is a cool lavender/pink with silver sparkles. Very pretty on my LLL cool complexion. It gives you such a soft pretty look. The only thing I don't like about WSDL is they don't last long AT ALL! They leave behind the silver sparkles on your lips, so you must reapply. But other than that good product. Cheap/nice packaging, and best of all the l/g doesn't have a rechid smell, at least I don't think so!

I love WSDL, but I am not fond of this color. I loved it at the store, but when I put it on, it was the same color as my lips! All I could see was the glitter. If you have lightly pigmented lips, than this color will look great on you. But on me, it did nothing. And the name of the color is very misleading. It is dark pinkish/mauve brown color with silver sparkles. Its a good product, but this color in particular was just like putting clear gloss with sparkles on. Cute packaging, and a price you can't beat,($1.99 w/ coupon!)
Highlighters -Clinique - Colour Rub Allover Lustre

At first after receiving this I wasn't impressed. But after giving it a second chance it has become part of my m/u routine. There are four different colors. I have sheer radiance which has a light pearly shimmer. What I have finally discovered is to apply to cheeks before applying blush and it will give you a nice radiant glow. Just use a light hand in applying. Packaging is ok. It comes in a tiny glass bottle, a little akward trying to get the right amount needed out. Overall I will probably purchase again.
This blush is GORGEOUS!!! I have been a blush rut lately and I have been on an intensive search for this blush due to all of the raves here on MUA. And thanks to sweetmelissa, she came to my rescue and sent this to me for RAOK. And let me just say WOW to this blush!! This peachy/pink blush is perfect for my NW20 skintone. This blush gives you such a healthy glowy look. On me, this blush is more peachy than pink with gold shimmer. It is well pigmented and lasts all day. Don't walk, run out and find this blush!
Cleansers -Olay - Sensitive Skin Foaming Face Wash

I have found my HG cleanser! This stuff takes off m/u with ease. Feels very nice on skin. Makes skin feel soft and smooth. It does everything a cleanser should do! Not harsh, has a faint clean scent about it. You can't beat the price. Lasts a long time too. Using this followed by Olay Complete Moisturizer fragrance free, my skin is the best it has ever been. Very pleased with this product.
This color is so pretty. Nice champagne/peachy color with subtle shimmer. Very nice texture, and very pigmented. Lasts all day and no creasing! You get a lot of shadow for the price. I wear it in the crease and lid with MAC teddy liner and looks great. Great shadow to grab when you are in a rush. Swipe a little on, little liner, and you've got gorgeous eyes! Can't go wrong with Prestige. Will buy this product again!
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Nutri-Vive with Nutra Ceremide Conditioner
ultagrl 7/23/2003 1:08:00 PM
I am loving the conditioner as much as the shampoo! It makes my long, naturally wavy hair very manageable and very soft. Does not weigh down my hair, but gives it the moisture it needs. Love the scent and love the price too. UPDATE 4/1/04: After using this conditioner after a while my hair turned to overcooked spaghetti. It was hard to get a brush through and when it was dry my hair just looked horrible.
My hair is loving this shampoo right now! I have been through so many shampoos lately and none of them have worked...until now. I have fine naturally wavy hair (but i have a lot of hair!). This shampoo makes my hair feel so soft and bouncy. It smells really fresh too. I am able to get a comb through my hair and it doesn't tangle. Works great with the Nutrivive conditioner. UPDATE 4/1/04: After using this shampoo after a long while, my hair started getting a really weird texture, i had to stop using it.
I just finally tried the sample in the Lucky mag, and I just realized I have been missing out. The color Mesmorized is so pretty. It is a light pinkish whitish shimmer that made my green eyes "pop"! Used what was left on my cheeks and gave me a great glow. I didn't want to try on my lips though, seemed to powdery for that. Consistency is very nice. Easy application, goes on creamy and then drys to a shimmery powder feel. Wore all day without creasing! Must try more of these.
