Toners -Estee Lauder - Perfectly Clean Fresh Balancing Lotion
yshah0621 2/19/2009 6:24:00 PM
I thought this would be a nice complement to my perfectly clean cleanser which I am in love with so far, but after a use or two I noticed that it makes my skin burn and turn red! i will stick to my aveda toner
Terrible! This made me look like a complete clown. I thought that even though this looked scary dark in the pan, maybe it would go on sheer and blend in well. NOT the case! It was soo difficult to blend and just sat on the apples of my cheeks not budging. All of the swirling and trying to distribute the blush probably made my cheeks even redder. i returned this the next day. i didnt even exchange for another bobbi brown blush of a lighter color, because to me it seems these blushes just don't have superior blendability like Smashbox.
Love this! Target now carries ecotools and this was only $8! Soo soft and the company is "green" and are part of the 1% for the planet program, which is great. Great distribution of blush, blends so well, and soft so its gentle on your face. im throwing out my sonia kashuk stuff and getting all ecotools!
Lip Gloss -MAC - MAC tinted Lipglass in Liqueur - Cult of Cherry

My first lipglass ever! Received this in swap, and though I was pretty sure the color was going to be nice, was worried about the texture and I am not at all disappointed! It is sticky, yes, but no more than an average lipgloss with good staying power. great color payoff. Its a slightly metallic sheen, just very rosey-pink with a hint of purple.
Eye Shadow -Clinique - High Impact eyeshadow Soft Shimmer "Keylime Pie"

I was looking for a shimmery green/silver eyeshadow like what Jennifer Aniston was wearing on her Oprah interview! Pros: Goes on very smoothly and evenly, don't have to blend a ton, decent staying power, cute compact with mirror inside and the outside can also be used as a mirror, comes with a mini brush, and you can see the color from the bottom outside. Cons: kind of expensive, at $14, but I guess that is how much most higher end eyeshadows cost (like MAC), some people might dislike the packaging, and you can end up looking like a makeup disaster from the 80's if you go overboard with this specific color! EDIT: realized that this is too pastel for my cool skin tone. it just doesn't flatter me!
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Cocoalicious

Color is quite pretty, a tad on the metallic side for me. Its a very brownie nude color, kind of opaque. Unlike some beauty rush glosses, this does not have grainy glitter, its more of a light shimmer. The only thing that which puts me off is that it smells like tootsie roll candies to me...yuck
Got this in a swap,so glad i didnt spend money on it! LOVE SWAP! it looked darker on the bobbi brown website than it really is. Its basically the exact same color as my eyelid. very sheer, and matte. nothing special at all
Got this as GWP, so I'm not that disappointed. I should have known I wouldn't be crazy about this product, as it as listed as a full coverage lipgloss by Smashbox. It is a bit too light and has alot of sheen/metallic in it, so it doesn't suit me. Will use this for clubbing though!
This reminds me alot of NARS blush in Sin. It is a berry-pink color with a hint of shimmer. Goes on with sheer-medium coverage and the shimmer is not too over the top,so this can be worn day or night. Compact is adorable with see through top so you can see the color when digging through your makeup bag and the bottom has a swivel out mirror. I think my search for the perfect blush has ended!
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - Curious by Britney Spears

Its sad that people write this fragrance off just because its by Britney Spears. I read somewhere that people said it smelled like "trailer trash nights". Au contraire. This is the most unique fragrance I have ever smelled! It just has a kick to it that can't be described. Staying power is amazing, and I can still smell it on my clothes even the next day. Very clean and sweet smelling. the bottle is adorable and reminds me of something princess jasmine would have on her dresser!
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Body by Victoria Daily body care mist

I think this is best as a summer scent. It is very floral and slightly citrusy. Lightly scented though, great for the summer heat when you don't want to suffocate everyone around you with your perfume.
Too bad this is discontinuted and you can now only get this during the Semi-annual sales, but at least its super cheap then! this fragrance gives you that fresh out of the shower, soapy, clean scent. Smells a bit like baby powder, but more floral. Get lots of compliments on this one. I like it as a winter scent
This stuff is pretty much like a lipstain. It was pretty moisturizing, but the glossiness doesn't have a ton of staying power. However, after an hour or so when the shine wears off, you are left with perfectly rosey colored lips. Smells like candy apples. The only thing I don't like it the lid keeps coming off, so don't try to carry this around in your nice handbag!
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - Mistral shea butters
yshah0621 1/25/2009 11:39:00 AM
I bought this on Amazon.com though I had never heard of the company.. I have the hand lotion its made with 20% organic shea butter. You don't have to use a lot, which is good since you only get 1 oz. for $8! The smell is just very light, clean. Its the milk scent. So hydrating, even in the winter. Keeps my hands soft and silky for hours
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Lipgloss in Hot Cocoanut

Yum! this stuff is delish! It smells (and tastes) like hot cocoa, and it reminds me of the yummy yummy Starbucks salted caramel hot chocolates which I have temporarily sworn off because they are so expensive and so bad for you! Their isn't much of a color payoff, just a light shimmer. looks great layered over lipstick or just for everyday wear. i use this to fight off my cravings
