Liquid -Bobbi Brown - Oil-Free Even Finish Foundation SPF 15 [DISCONTINUED]

Thank gawd I didn't buy a full bottle of this stuff. I tried it out and 'no joke,' the next morning my face had pimples all over it. I don't know what it was but I have never broke out this bad EVER after trying a foundation. So, needless to say, it didn't work for me period. The texture isn't even what you would expect of a 'higher end' brand. Or, at least to me.
When I first tried this, I hated it! I swiped it once or twice and then swapped it! A few months later I asked for it not remembering I had tried it before and now its my absolute favorite e/s! You really have to play with it to get the right look! You just have to get a good match with another color or two and it really is amazing! Like a few others have said, its one of the few piggy's I would pay to have a full jar of!
I love this product. It gives a nice overall shimmer on the cheeks and you only need a little. I have to say, I was a little surprised to see how small it was when I got it. But, it should last awhile! I have it in lilac petal but I might want to try the others! And, it smells yummy!
I like this brush and I use it daily for mineral veil. It doesn't shed and for a dollar you cant beat it!
Foundations -Cover Girl - Advanced Radiance Age-Defying Makeup

I was surprised at how much I liked this product. It is the coverage of the CG clean makeup that I love. I got it with a coupon so I didn't have to pay the 10.99 for it which seems a bit much for a drugstore foundation. However, it did make my skin look flawless so I will prob. repurchase! I just hate that CG's colors aren't the 'same' througout all of their stuff. UPDATE: This has become my HG foundation. Orginally, I used Lancome Teint Idole Ultra which I thought was amazing. But, I notice when I venture off to another foundation, it doesn't give me the 'radiance' this one does!! My skin looks 'dewy' and soft when I wear this. Others have a tendacy to make my skin look cakey and 'Non-luminous' (Word?) Anyways, I will continue to keep buying this!
This is a crummy mascara. I only bought it because I had a coupon. It def. wasn't worth the money WITH a coupon!

CG eyeshadows are always good. But, they keep going up and up in price just like everything else! Overall, this is a nice quad. The colors go well together. And, the only reason I wouldn't buy again is because I prob. don't use it enough to ever run out.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - HiP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner
BRANDI7013 4/25/2008 12:09:00 AM
This stuff is expensive for what it is--drugstore! Its like 12.00usd at walmart! It's a nice eyeliner but it smudges easily.
I don't like the tubes these come in. I prefer lippies with wands. But, overall this is a really pigmented gloss that smells nice. But, its not something I reach for--- ever. There are much better products out there.
Fragrances -Essence of Beauty - Lemon Twist Body Mist

This is the only scent I like of the whole line. I have the lotion that goes with it and I like the fruity smell of it. Its no bath and body works but its nice after a shower. It doesn't stay on but its good for around the house or a quick mist down.
Styling Products -Dove - Curl Defining Styling Cream
BRANDI7013 4/25/2008 12:02:00 AM
This stuff just makes my hair blah! It doesn't hold nor does it define my curls. It just makes my hair look dull. I bought it once and will never repurchase.
Styling Products -Dove - Dove Extra Hold Hair Spray
BRANDI7013 4/25/2008 12:01:00 AM
This is not 'extra hold.' Once again, it smells nice (like all dove products!) but just doesn't do the job it says it does. Too bad :(
For some reason- this stuff doesn't work for me. It smells awesome but it just doesn't do the job!
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - CelluSculpt [DISCONTINUED]

Ok. I am in the middle on this product. It does stink so let me get that out of the way! And, like the girl before- I only noticed about a 15% difference...nothing major! And, I kept asking if it really was working at all! And for my butt, legs, and everything else...it went kind of fast. I guess I would repurchase. I'm not sure :)
I love the smell of this stuff! I keep the whole tub in the shower and it goes so fast from everyone using it! It works wonders on dry skin and smells amazing!
