Lip Gloss -Clinique - Superbalm Moisturizing Glosses

I really like this, because it has no annoying smell or taste, no stickiness, it moisturizes, it glosses, lasts a long time, and the tube will probably last me a long time too. The colours are pretty and its something i hope clinique won't discontinue!
Eye Shadow -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Eyeshadow in Smokey
ktu64 10/3/2008 7:21:00 PM
I have brown eyes, short lashes, so i like using espresso coloured eyeliner and darker smoky eyeshadows, and this is perfect! It can go for a while without creasing, the colour payoff is pretty good. It's just a little pricey for me to rebuy, but the amounts are generous. It will probably last me a long time though, still looking for a cheaper dupe...
I bought a pretty-looking purple colour called heather, and i pretty much love all of my other rimmel products so i thought it would turn out okay. also, it was on sale for 2.99. but nope, no colour showed up. so i tried it wet. it turned cobalt blue and creased in about 10 blinks. Then i tried mixing it with lip balm, and it took literally forever to dry. It also creased like crazy. Overall, not worth the purchase and definitely not buying this again. Seriously. Go for wetnwild instead.
I really like this, i didn't really find anything wrong with it, except i'm not a big fan of tubes. I prefer pumps. The smell is just fine with me. Okay, so it doesn't foam, but its also soap-free. I find that it cleans out my skin just fine, and still leaving it soft and moist. Since i started using this around 3 weeks ago, my acne has really been more under control. Will buy this again if I can find it the next time i need to go shopping for cleanser, last time i looked I didn't see this :(
one word: YES! pros: large pan to swirl your brush in not orangey not a lot of shimmer non-breakout causing cheap packaging not as crappy as other rimmel products you get a lot for your money and I only have a few cons... doesn't show up too much on me, but that doesn't really count because i'm so tanned already. no spf. if it did i would love rimmel forever my sister borrowed it. however, that's not rimmel's fault! ♥ i HIGHLY recommend this bronzer, its my new love ♥♥♥
Well, this product didn't really do much for my hair. It is weightless and yummy-smelling though, and it added some moisture to my hair. Not a lot, but I could kind of notice it. Overall, not going to buy this product after this, since its just not really worth it.
This is a sometimes good sometimes not so good product... As in, bottom lashes it works okay, but I don't even line my bottom lashes if its not just for fun. On the top lashline I found this to tug a little, and when its melty after a blast from a hairdryer it definitely goes on smooth, but it likes to smudge too. Good pigmentation though. 3 lippies from me. I might buy it again in a fun colour that I wouldn't use very often but I would still keep around because it is soooo cheap! EDIT: I used this a couple of days I couldn't find anything else... Stayed on really well! Upped to 4 lippies.
This is kind of a rose-plum colour. It looks kind of mauve in the palette. I won't be buying this colour (I tried in a GWP), but I might use it more because its a kind of nice colour. Its smooth shadow, I just haven't tried it for long enough to figure out if it lasts or not. At this price though, I'd rather opt with other e/s.
this was in a GWP palette that I've pretty much never used, but now I love this! The shadow is blendable and smooth. The colour looks quite pink in the palette, and on your skin, if you spread it out lots its very silvery. Its not so metallic that its not wearable though. A really good colour in all!
This is a well pigmented, kind of frosty-yet-creamy white. It works great on its own or with other eyeshadows. Its an eyeshadow that actually works really well! The powder is very smooth and blendable.
Wow. I definitely picked up the wrong shade for me, because this turns me into a tangerine. SO ORANGE, and its "luminous", but I would just say it makes me shiny. It's not really shimmery, but it looks gross on me anyways. If only I'd picked up the right shade... Oh well, it was only 3.50 or something. I think it would look nice on some people, just not me. And also. this is very, very pigmented. The packaging is, well, crappy, as for the brush, but come on, its drugstore stuff. So yes, not buying this brand of bronzer again even though it is a nice texture, since none of these shades seem right for me at all.

I love this soap so much. I even use it on my face I love it so much, and I love how it smells, it works, and the price! I wish they had this store where I live... It makes yours hands smell so nice, it makes them soft and clean too. I'd recommend this soap to anyone! Love love love this stuff!
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Fun Frosted Cranberry

Contrary to almost everyone else's reviews, I really enjoyed this smell. We don't have bath and body works in Canada, but whenever I'm in the states, its a must-stop destination for me. I was there in time to pick up a tube of the body cream for 2.50! Wow, thats like, cheaper than walmart over here xDDD Anyways, the scent was nice, it was fairly moisturizing and I didn't find any funny smell changes. I would maybe even buy this stuff again if it was still available, and I'm still buying body cream and lotion from here every chance I get <3
Pressed Powders -New York Color - Pressed Face Powder
ktu64 8/20/2008 6:02:00 PM
Okay, first comment: good powder, sucky packaging. The hinge is like... a piece of thin plastic that's folded. The sponge... Ugh. Just use a brush and save the trouble. Its like, the cheapest sponge you can get. Onto the actual product, I am not going to take away lippies because of the packaging because this powder actual works. Okay, so the darkest shade is a little bit lighter than my skin, but if I blend it a little then it just sort of turns clear. I'm not sure if I should take that as good or bad. It is definitely mattifying and good over foundation though, because its smooth and it doesn't go on cakey or heavy. And also, the colour... Well, its summer right now, and by the time winter ocmes along I'm sure this will probably match xD Overall: a powder that I will buy again, if I run out or don't end up trying a different brand (hehe, not very likely though because of the 2.50 pricetag)
Yay! Non-shimmery blush that gives a nicely pigmented, but healthy and natural looking flush to your cheeks. And all at a low price too! What more can I say- get this blush now!
