Makeup Brushes -Flirt - Feather Dust-her (aka Skunk Brush)
Hyperduckz3 3/20/2008 1:58:00 PM
This brush, like the MAC 187, takes some getting used to. The 187 is great with liquids or creams & this is great with powders (especially blushes). It really blends colors nicely. Mine hasn't shed that much, but I guess every brush is different. Although, if you are looking for a brush to use with liquid/cream foundations, I really recommend the 187, it's amazing! I have tried this brush with foundation & it didn't produce very good results.

Ok, if I could give this a 10, I would. What a huge difference this makes in how my foundation looks! Everybody says it gives an "airbrushed" look, & it's true. I have the Flirt skunk brush, & although that is a good brush, this one blows it out of the water! Ya, it's expensive, but Im sure it will last for years (I hope!), so the price really isn't that bad.

I LOVE this stuff!!! Dries quick (SUPER QUICK), isn't sticky or stiff, & smells good. I just cut bangs in my hair & I spray some of this on my fingers & use it to piece them out. Love how u can "lock" the spray part. EDIT: Still love this stuff!!! The only bad thing is the spray clogs up a lot:(
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express Turbo Boost Waterproof
Hyperduckz3 3/20/2008 11:51:00 AM
I always come back to this mascara. I think I've bought it about 4 times now. I have long eyelashes & this helps make them stand out. It creates a little curl, a lot of volume, & nice color. I usually get the brown/black. It does sometimes get a little clumpy, but i dont mind that at all, though I could see how some people would hate this mascara because of that. Best drugstore mascara...& even better than most high end mascaras, IMO.
So Im on my second day & I already am noticing a brighter smile:). My teeth were some what white to begin with but I wanted to pump it up a notch. I can't wait to see the final results! Will update. UPDATE: Almost done with the box & I LOVE the results. I highly recomend, & will buy again:)

So, i bought this yesturday (the kind for FACE). First of all, the "spatula" that they give sucks! Its way to big to use for eyebrows. It was an ok size though for my upper lip area. This is actually my only complaint really about the product (other than the smell, ewww). Hair pulling-out power was suprisingly....good! It even got the thick dark hairs:) But again, the spatula, was VERY hard to control. I actually ended up waxing a big chunk of my eyebrow that i didn't want waxed, lol. I have to admit that this was my first time waxing myself...so maybe I just need more practice? Oh, I also didn't really like how its "pull off" wax, meaning you actually pull the wax off (u don't use a strip to pull it off, which Im used to from going to the salon for years). It was kind of a fun experience though, lol.
Liquid -Make Up For Ever - Mat Velvet PLUS Matifying Foundation
Hyperduckz3 3/7/2008 1:53:00 PM
Well I was looking for a matte foundation & this does an OK job of keeping me shine free. With that being said, it does have good coverage power & i like the color selection. The problem with me is that i have an oiley T zone & I have become obsessed, haha, with keeping it matte. This does a better job than most foundations, but it definitley does not keep it matte all day. Overall its a pretty good foundation though. UPDATE: I have been using this more often lately & I have noticed that when it oxidizes on the skin it doesn’t turn an orangey color like MAC Studio Fix does. I LOVE how MAC SF looks on my skin, but it always seem to turn orangey after a couple hours. I think I'll start using this more:)
I really like this color. I don't use it as a full on lipstick, but as a lip liner. It's the perfect color for lining my lips. It lasts a long time too:) EDIT: I actually wore this as a lipstick the other night & I loved it! I got many compliments on it too:). For me this i not an everyday look, but it's great for a sexy look at night.

"Wow" is all that I can say, so far. I have only used this product once, but so far so good. My hair is long, damaged, & very wavy/curly. I also have split ends that get really frizzy looking. Today when I woke up, I took a shower, applied a small drop of this to my hair (mostly focusing on the ends). I then blow dryed my hair & already noticed a difference. Then I applied another small drop & flat ironed with my HAI. The results are so good! My hair is soft, more manageable, a little shinnier, & A LOT less frizzy. Im thinking HG status here....

Well, so far so good...I've been using this product for about a week now & it has noticeably cleared up my skin. It has also toned it. I don't get bad breakouts, just a pimple here & there, & this stuff dried them out (not in a bad way). It has also made my face feel less oily. So, i guess only time will tell how good this product is. I'm crossing my fingers though, cause I'm lovin the results so far. Oh, the smell is terrible! Just to warn everyone. Update: I love this stuff! Im changing my rating to 5 lippies:)
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Illuminating Microderm Cleansing Pads

Wow, I really like these! I love to exfoliate my skin because of the great benefits I get from doing it (more "glowing" skin, less breakouts, better canvas for makeup...). So I was at Target & saw these & decided to give them a try. They are great! Some people find the pocket-like design to be "awkward" but I find it genius. It is sooo easy to use. I also love that the exfoliating side of the pocket it not too harsh, just perfect. The other side is smooth & feels really good against the skin after its just been exfoliated. Great Product =).
Eyeliner -Flirt - Look of Love eye pencil in Brownie Points
Hyperduckz3 1/7/2008 3:24:00 PM
I love this eyeliner! I have greenish eyes & it makes them *pop*. Love the hint of shimmer. The only thing that would make this a 5 is if they added a smudge brush to the other side of the pencil. It's a great eyeliner though:).
I love this scent! I got it for $16 at TJ Max =)! It's a great everyday fragrance. My boyfriend likes it too. LOVE the bottle.

Well, first of all I dont have very bad skin, but Ive been partying & going out a lot latley (wearing full on make up & then passing out with it on, lol). This routine has done a number on my skin lately. I got this stuff yesturday & I swear my face looked better this morning (even though last night was yet another night of passing out with makeup on, haha, im a big loser). So, so far so good. I will update in a couple weeks though cause obviously my review right now is not very accurate.
I really like this stuff. The trick is only use it about once every two weeks (i've noticed it works best this way, at least in my hair). It makes my hair shiny & soft & it smells good too:)
