wow! there was a promo during friends and family for this for FREE! and at first i didnt relaly care much for it but when i got it and tried it on, its relally nice! it has that weird organic taste that a lot of organic lip products have like a minty smell but tastes lik cardboard but it makes ur lips very moist and hydrated without feeling slippery and its pretty pigmented for a balm! pretty neutral reddish peachish brown color. i wud buy again and otehr colors if there are more

i haven't even tried this yet but i don't think i can either, the smell is unbelieveable, like seriously i didn't think anything could smell like that. i would tolerate really bad chemical smelling stuff, but this is lik bad chemical smell PLUS bad natural smell that lingers in my nose even after i close the bottle. edit: haha holding my breathe i still use this, no diff in skin cept that it is smoother right after it dries on teh face but the smell is a little more tolerable now.
Treatments (Eye) -RoC - Retinol correxion eye cream
yelloats 8/16/2011 1:33:00 AM
i got this with my moisturizer tubes from costco...i think its full size, its 15ml. i have nothing bad to say about this lol. i got it for free and had never intended to buy it. ive used it for maybe 2 months and theres still a GOOD amount left, you really dont need much at all. it doesnt make my eyes dry or itchy or stingy. i didnt get this b/c i hav wrinkles or dark circles so i cant say anything about that, but it does well in moisturizing without being too heavy. absorbs very quickly. i dont just use this for my undereye, but also my lids so it doesnt get all dried up from make up and makeup remover.
Blush -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Blush in Pink Frosting [DISCONTINUED]
yelloats 8/13/2011 5:02:00 AM
i love that these blushes are in a glass jar theyre so adorable! this is the kind of colored blush i wud imagine on korean actresses, very light baby pink color its very cute! and there are a lot of shimmer tho, had tehre been a tad bit less it wud be such a perfect blush but i still like it. its hard to mess up with this blush because u can apply ALOT and it still wont look over done unless u literally smear it all over ur cheeks. it looks a lot better with a brush than hands tho :) worth a try if ur into cream/mousse blushes cuz its very affordable.
was very disappointed with this color. excited me waaay too much seeing such an orange color at a drugstore. in the tube it looks like wow! crazy orange and the swatch on the hand is pretty true to color but on the lips it turns out more lik a slightly bright pinkish red than it looks orange, but ppl will be able to tell that you're trying to go for an orange lips, its identifiable as orange, just leaning more on red. if thats what you're looking for, orange more on the red side then this is prolly for you but if you were looking for for an ORANGE color lik the actual fruit color, shiseido has one in Day Lily thats truly amazing true orange color with some shimmers. but the texture of this revlon one is nice and easy smooth application tho. no shimmers.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational - Peachy Scene

mm i didnt find anything special about this lip color. i lvoe the texture of colorsenational lipsticks and this one is just as great in quality as all the other ones i have. if you dont like sheen lip colors then dont get this, it looks metallic when i apply straight to my lips, it helps tone down the sheen if u rub with ur fingers tho.
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
yelloats 7/30/2011 6:57:00 PM
i think this was pretty expensive for a drugstore primer but overall, it does do a nice job in priming, makes your face much smoother and a nice smooth matte feel. but i think this is really not the thing for ppl with dry skin or even ppl with small patches of dry skin. it seems to make the dry areas bigger and worse than they are. however if u dont have those dry spots, this works great. a good way is to prime avoiding those dry areas and i think you should be good.
Primer/ Corrector -Laura Mercier - Foundation Primer-Mineral
yelloats 7/19/2011 9:07:00 PM
i dont think i will try any other primer now! my face is like a floating oil well! i get oily like no other and i can happily use this as a face primer and and eye primer! it works 100x better than UDPP in eden and the original and its thinner and lighter too. UDPP makes me crease within lik 30-60 minutes and same with the new tarte clean slate eye primer, i get creasing so fast. this makes my eyeshadow last at least 4 hours on a hot day and about 6 hours on a normal day. i use it for both powder and cream/liquid foundation and it controls oil much better than the loreal magic perfecting base and both of the new tarte clean slate primers (the flawless and poreless ones). its thin and liquidy and dries matte! its not really a primer that evens out texture though because its so thin, like if you have dry patches i dont think this will help much but oily ppl this is great! ive used it almost everyday for half a year and i am at halfway so 30$ for 1 year is fineee with me! JK! price went up its now 32$ whyy...?! but its still ok id repurchase for sure
Lipstick -BeneFit Cosmetics - Rush Hour for lips and cheeks
yelloats 7/17/2011 10:38:00 PM
nice sturdy compact packaging. pretty natural berryish color, almost a mlbb color. easy to blend, looks very natural on the cheeks. but dries which is good for cheeks b/c it wont easily smudge off but drying on lips, need a balm.
Treatments -Biore - Ultra Deep Cleansing pore strips
yelloats 7/11/2011 3:42:00 AM
i always get these not the regular ones that dont say "ultra deep cleansing" b/c even tho u get 2 less with these, i feel these work much better. even with that said, the only time ive been able to successfully remove black heads was the first time i ever used it, when my nose was just a complete mess of clogs, all the times after that it for some reason doesnt reach for the blackheads just the regular oil and stuff that clog ur pores that arent exactly black i unno what those are called..white heads? (mm i dont think so but something along that line). but i got hte clarisonic and even tho it still doesnt help remove the black heads it removes more of the white ones i mentioned earlier when i use these pore strips. so exfoliate ur nose area before using this for max effect.
it makes my eyes really stingy whenever i use this so i cant really say how great of a liner this is.
Treatments -Garnier - Fructis Triple Nutrition Nutrient Spray
yelloats 7/6/2011 10:54:00 PM
um i dont think this does anything good to my hair but it also doesnt do anything bad either (doesnt make oilier) so i dont kno what hte point of this product is. it smells good but thats only after maybe the first 30 min to hour after i apply. i apply 5 sprays to hand then into my wet hair but when my hair dries, its not really any softer than if i dont use it..so i think there are better products out there than this. this is cheap tho so i guess slurge a little more for something more effective is what i wud do.

LOVE IT! hope it doesnt get dicontinued everywhere else
Eye Shadow -Kat Von D - True Romance Truth Palette
yelloats 5/15/2011 9:34:00 PM
this was only 17$ on sephora and it has such cute spring/summer colors! however the only thing i dont like too much is that most of the colors are reallly shimmery/pearly and only 1 color is matte but its not very pgimented (the peachy color). however the greens are really nice, theyre light greens that are very wearable in the summer not a POP in ur face bright green . if u like greens this is definitely a good palette or if u jus lik nice spring colors
i love the posietint! pretty expensive but they have a three in one minipack right now at sephora for posie/benetint/highbeam for 15 dollars. this is wayyy cuter on the lips than the benetint in my opinion. its very buildable and can turn a bright pink if u apply lots of layers. i think benetint looks more natural on the cheeks but it all comes down to preference b/c some ppl would rather a cute pink cheek than nice natural tint. i love it on the lips tho b/c u dont really have to worry about reapplying after a meal or when u drink water.
