This sunscreen is supposed to help against UVA and UVB. The color is a bit beige. I have light colored skin so it doesn't really make my face any lighter or darker. When first applied, it does feel pretty heavy and thick. I have to even it out on my face so it won't be concentrated on one area. I bought this sunscreen because of the high SPF and because it's at a reasonable price: $15.50. If you want a sunscreen that's at a pretty low price then go for it.
Moisturizers -Biotherm - Aquasource Non Stop (combination skin)

This is a green gel moisturizer in a jar. I really like how it makes my skin feel after I apply it over a toner. It gives me a fresh feeling, and it absorbs sooo fast. It also makes my face all smooth in just one day as long as I keep using it. I don't mind that it's a gel substance because it doesn't really make a difference to me. It definitely did not dry my face up. My face is sometimes dry, and this helps moisturize my face a lot and it doesn't make my face oily. If you want a moisturizer at a pretty decent price for $31 that works pretty well, then go for it.
This is used for detoxifying, hydrating, reduing puffiness, and diminishing dark circles according to Biotherm. However, I felt that the only thing it actually does is give moisture to my eye area. Also, it made my eyes seem more puffy. I still have dark circles, but maybe that is because I sleep late at night and wake up early causing me not to have enough sleep. This eye gel does absorb fast after I apply it, and it doesn't feel all oily since it is not a creamy substance. For sure it does not improve some of the wrinkles I have under my eyes. To me, it looked worst after I used it. The only reason why I bought this is because I wanted to be cheap since this is $26 compared to $52 for other brands. I still don't know how it detoxifies. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone except if they just want a fresh feeling for their eyes. However, if this eye gel improves my eyes later on, I will be glad to edit this review.
Lip Treatments -Neutrogena - Lip Nutrition - Vanilla Replenish Balm

This pot of balm is supposed to condition lips overnight. That was the only reason why I bought this out of all the other balms because I only wear chapsticks at night. I'm not so sure it works that well. It does work okay though, but nothing dramatic. The balm is actually kind of hard to get out of the pot if your nails are long. I have to rub hard to get some product on my finger. The balm isn't thick or anything, but maybe feels a little sticky after awhile. Most drugstores sell this for: $6.99, which is way overpriced. I would not repurchase something that costs so much yet is drugstore material. It's not like this works well. It just does a minimum job.
Lip Treatments -Neutrogena - Lip Boost intense moisture therapy
xMzxPrEcIoUsx 2/18/2005 3:54:00 AM
This is a lip treatment that makes lips soft and brings out the lips' natural blush. I've had this on for two days and whenever I have it on, my lips would feel so soft. Even my boyfriend noticed the softness of my lips. Ever since that, I love this lip treatment even more. The applicator is slanted for easy application. It has a fresh toothpaste smell when first applied. It fades away quick. The texture is not sticky at all and it lasts pretty long. You can apply this under your lipstick too and it won't look drying. If you want a lip treatment that softens your lips and bring out the natural color of your lips, then this would really do.
Myth is a pale peachy-beige color. I had to choose between Fleshpot and this color, but I chose this one because Fleshpot was more pale. A lot of people tell me I look dead because of the nude/pale color, but maybe it's because I have light color skin. The lipstick glides on pretty nice and creamy. I would recommend putting lipgloss on top of it, or maybe a lipliner. If you want a pale lipstick that stays on well then go for it.
I bought this in pink S309 rose. It's pretty much a pink shimmery color. The packaging of these lipsticks are small so it could fit anywhere. There isn't much of a smell or taste. It isn't too dry like those other cheap lipsticks, but not moisturizing neither. The color doesn't seem to show a lot, so I wouldn't be getting this color anymore. I like how they have lots of colors to choose from. I wouldn't repurchase these though because they cost a lot online and I got these at a outlet store.
Fragrances -The Healing Garden - White Tea Theraphy
xMzxPrEcIoUsx 12/28/2004 4:44:00 AM
I got this gift set that comes with a Eau de Parfum and body lotion. The smell was awkward to me at first, but then the more I use it, the more I kind of like the scent. White Teatheraphy smells kind of flowery. It has a faint smell, so respraying is necessary. The price is pretty fair: less than $13.00 for the perfume spray and the body lotion. I wouldn't repurchase this again because I want to try out other theraphy products from this brand. If you want a subtle comforting smell then White Teatheraphy would do.
Eyeliner -NYX - Eye / Eyebrow Pencil * 901 * Black
xMzxPrEcIoUsx 12/27/2004 7:34:00 PM
This eyeliner works pretty well. It only costs: $0.99. The texture feels okay, but not the best. I have to press a bit to get the color on my eyelids, but the color shows. The lines show vividly, and wouldn't smudge as much as other expensive eyeliners. I would recommend these to people because of the price and how well it works.
I bought this lipstick in 14 Sultry Blush. This color is brownish. The texture feels smooth, unlike all other lipsticks. It's sort of shiny when applied on the lips too. It doesn't dry out my lips and have SPF 15. The packaging is just like any other normal lipsticks. I got this as a gift, but the online price is: $19.50. That's very expensive for just a lipstick. I would recommend these lipsticks to people, but only if they're willing to pay that much for them. I wouldn't get these again due to the price.
Baby Mauve is a light peachy brown color. This gloss is pretty shiny, and it's easy to apply on because of the sponge application. There isn't any smell to this. It lasts pretty long, but sometimes it makes my lips dry. This gloss also feels a bit sticky, but I can take it. The only problem I have with this gloss is that overtime, it changes to a reddish brown color. I have to mix it with the applicator to make it normal again. I wouldn't repurchase this color again because I personally got tired of it, and it's pretty pricy for this kind of brand.
I bought this lipstick in 512 Ares. It's a shimmery purple color. I didn't like the texture of the lipstick because it is pretty dry. The color makes my lips look too mechanical. The price is great though, which is about $1.00. There isn't any taste or smell to these lipsticks. I wouldn't buy these again because the quality isn't so good, but if you want to just try out a new color then these would do.
At first I really liked using this product. I liked how I can spread the lipgloss evenly with the brush applicator. The thing I hate about it is that if i click too many times, there would be a lot of gloss coming out. However, if I don't click enough times, none would come out. This lipgloss is very shiny, but sticky, but that's how a lipgloss is supposed to be if it's very shiny. I think this is the first lipgloss I have ever used that was this shiny. Now the shiniest lipgloss I have is Lancome's Star Gloss Starlight. This lipgloss also lasts very long. It's one of the many lipglosses I have that lasts a long time. I think it lasts more than two hours. Anyway, I got it in Sweet Mocha, and it smelled a little too strong. One reason I stopped using it was because of the strong nasty mocha smell. I can smell it after five minutes I put it on. I don't think that there is enough product in the container, and it costs around $5.00. That's a lot for a Bonne Bell product, but it's one of the best they have here, so I guess it's okay to purchase it once in a great while. It has a sheer brownish tint to it. I could sort of tell it has a color to it. If you want shiny lips and don't mind about the strong mocha smell then go for it.
Lip Liners -NYX - Slim Lip Pencil - Brown Cafe 821

This lipliner is dark brown. I don't like how it looks on my lips because it looks too dark and doesn't seem to blend well with my lipsticks. I would recommend a lighter brown color. The price is cheap though: $0.99. I have another color and that one doesn't break when I sharpened it, but with this one it does. This is another reason why I don't really like it. I wouldn't repurchase it again because the color isn't right for me.
This lipstick is a brownish color. The texture feels normal, not too dry and not too smooth. I would buy it again though because I like the color: Choc It Up. The price isn't too bad, which is about less than $3.00. If you just want to buy a normal brown lipstick then this one would do.
