This is a fun, flirty scent. Heads turn because you're a walking dessert. mmm It's a very sweet fragrance. You may want to reserve it for just certain occasions. It might be a bit too much to wear this on a regular basis. It's lasting power is not great. So buy the small one so that you can carry it in your purse and use it throughout the day, if desired. Would re-purchase.
I love the soft, sweet, femine smell of this perfume. It's what a perfume should smell like. It's classic. It has a soothing/comforting effect on the person wearing it. I wish it had more lasting power, as it does seem to fade away throughout the day. Would purchase again.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Exaggerate Auto Waterproof Eye Definer (all)

I bought this in Black. I've tried it for the first time today and loved it. The color stayed on all day, did not budge one bit. The application of the liner was smooth, and easily blendable with the smudege tip that it came with. I love the size, it's perfect for gripping. I find that the thicker pencils are more difficult to grip/control. Would purchase again.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Wet Shine Lipstick - Plumsicle
h20liliz 8/23/2009 1:36:00 AM
Cute shade, with micro shimmers. I love wearing this with purple outfits. It's very complementary since purple lipstick is really not an option. This soft pink can also double as a blush. Very blendable. Gives a fresh, soft glow. Packaging sucks. The cap keeps falling off the tube. I hope Maybelline will work on improving the packaging of their product. Otherwise, would definately buy again.
I bought this a few years ago when Red Earth had it's own stores. The quality of their lipsticks are great. I love the richness and lasting power of their lipsticks. This particular shade is a soflt, almost transparent red. Girls, if you are looking for a red shade that you can wear everyday, this is it. I prefer wearing this with my dramatic eyes, rather than a 'nude' lipcolor. I find that true nudes are quite repulsive... as they can look sickly and/or give an incomplete look to a highly made-up face.
Lipstick -Rimmel - Lasting Finish - Heather Shimmer
h20liliz 8/23/2009 1:24:00 AM
I really wanted to like this product but found that the color wears off pretty quickly. You end up with nothing but a silvery purple frost which makes you look like you've been in the cold too long. If you re-apply the lipstick, it's fine. The nice plum color will return. But this means you have to re-apply every 2 hrs. Another point to note is that the packaging is VERY flimsy. The lipstick tube came apart from the base after my 3rd use. Every time I go to open it now, I have to re-attach/adjust it. I wouldn't re-purchase.
Styling Products -L'Oreal - Studio Line Volumatic Full-Up Mousse
h20liliz 8/23/2009 1:14:00 AM
Light-weight with decent holding power. It gives a fresh, natural-look. This was an okay product. I would prefer a mousse that gave more shine. I am open to trying diff product but may re-purchase if it were on sale.
Styling Products -Finesse - Firm Hold Unscented Hairspray
h20liliz 8/23/2009 1:10:00 AM
My parents used to buy lots of Finesse products when I was little. My first hairspray was a Finesse Brand. It's an oldie but a good one. I have since continued to purchase Finesse hairsprays only because it works and it's almost always on sale somewhere.
With years of damage to my colored hair, I found that Pantene's Fortifying Treatment Conditioner has improved the quality of my dried, limp hair. It softens, reduces breakage and restores shine in the hair. The packaging recommends that you use it weekly but I use it everyday to maintain that beautiful hair. Excellent quality for a reasonable price.
Powder -Sheer Cover - Sheer Cover - Mineral Foundation
h20liliz 8/23/2009 1:00:00 AM
I had purchased this online... not knowing exactly how accurate the swatches were. It came with 2 diff shades so that you can 'customize' it to your personal shade. One has a more yellow base, the other has a light but ashy tone to it. I don't tend to blend the shades together; instead, I pick one to use (yellow during summer months and the lighter one during the winter months). I normally don't use foundation but choose to use the mineral powder when I need full coverage (on days that I have stubborn pimples). The mineral powder does seem to improve my skin but not enough that I would want to wear it everyday. I still prefer to go au naturale whenever possible. Ths product would be suitable for acne-prone people who want full coverage and a product that does not worsen the effects of their breakouts.
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control

What an awesome product! I've been using it everyday for the last 2 wks and find that my face is smooth and pores refined. I can't emphasize how smooth my face is after using this product. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product.
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - Deluxe Eyeshadow - Fishnet
h20liliz 8/23/2009 12:43:00 AM
I bought this out of sheer impulse. I loved the cute packaging. But to be honest, I haven't used this much. It's a beautiful color but not the shade that you could use everyday. The quality is okay... I have tried other brands that have higher pigmentation. In terms of lasting power, it's pretty good. It does seem to stay on for the most part of the day. It's not a personal fav, only because it's not versatile. But I'm sure other people might have better uses for it. I pesonally would not re-purchase.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Raisin Glaze [DISCONTINUED]
h20liliz 8/23/2009 12:35:00 AM
I LOVE this lipgloss because: 1) it feels super light and is not sticky 2) is moisturizing 3) gives beautiful color 4) gives a sexy pout 5) is compact; great packaging If you haven't tried this yet, you have to get your hands on one of these. It's great all year long!
Concealers -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Concealer
h20liliz 8/23/2009 12:28:00 AM
This concealer is great. It is easy to apply and blends very well. It provides medium coverage and does not clog pores. It feels light. I use it as an all-in-one, to cover undereye circles and minor blemishes/redness on the face. I've had no trouble with it so far. Definately would buy again.
I was pleasantly surprised by this mascara. It did not smudge or clump at all. The reason why it didn't get 5 lippies is because I think L'oreal's Voluminous mascara is still better at volumizing. Occasionally, I will apply L'oreal's on first, and top it off with CG's Volume exact, to get the best of both worlds. It seems to work well. As for mascara removal, I find that using a couple of drops of coconut oil will do the trick.
