This gives me a really nice glow, and I have no problems wearing it all over my face. I do have a heavy hand when it comes to applying anything, and with this I find that's okay since it's not too easy to get a lot of the product onto your brush. The case is pretty difficult for me to open, and after prying for about 3 minutes I usually get it. There's tons of it so I'm not sure if I'll have to rebuy anytime soon, but when the time comes I'm sure I will.
Although this isn't a favorite, I do like this and I would buy it again. Compared to my usual (Revlon Colorstay) the application is easy and it blends really well. It feels really light on my face, and even though the coverage isn't THAT great, it evens out my skintone and that's all I really need from a foundation. As long as you conceal first you really shouldn't have any problems, and if you're looking for something with medium-full coverage, this isn't the foundation for you. I use it with the matching powder, and it never looks cakey. The bottle sucks, and it's not an exact match to my skin tone but that's alright and those are my only complaints.
Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - Ceramix Hair Straightener

Bar none the BEST hair straightener I have ever used, and I've used quite a few. I picked this up from my hairdresser, who ordered it for me. I've been using it for years and years now, I've even stepped on it and broken the handle and it STILL works like new! This makes my hair so shiny and nothing I've used straightens like it. I noticed there were no reviews on this here, so if anyone's looking for a no bs straightener this is it!
This was my signature scent throughout highschool and the few years after. I've been through bottles of this stuff, and the one I have now is nearly done. I love the sweetness, and the bit of vanilla you get (that is bar none my FAVORITE smell). Like other people have said it doesn't stay long, so reapplying is necessary. Cute bottle.
I love this, I always feel a little more sophisticated when I wear this. The only problem I have is that it's SO strong, and I feel like even one spray is too much! I had someone complain once :( It's definitely a scent I feel more comfortable wearing at night. I'll continue to wear it sometimes, but I don't think I'd repurchase.
This is my most worn scent right after J'adore. I find it doesn't last the whole day, but that's fine. I usually wear it at night so it doesn't matter. It's a nice feminine scent, a little musky, but definitely something that is noticed and gets complimented!
I love this scent! My mom bought me the bubble bath for Christmas last year, and after waiting for quite a while, I got this in a 5 for $20 sale at the La Senza near my house. The Cherry Blossom smell really stands out and I always get compliments on it!
Eye Shadow -Avon - Eye Shadow Quad - Fresh Cut Greens

I bought this when my ex bf's sister was working for Avon, and it makes me sad that I'll probably never get it again. I have green eyes, and I love using all kinds of green shadows to accentuate them a little more. I love doing a smoky eye with this quad. The colors last and look absolutely great. Love love love!
Primer/ Corrector -Unlisted Brand - Monistat - Chafing Relief Powder-Gel

As a primer, this is probably my favorite. I was using The Present by Philosophy before, and I found it made my liquid foundation streak and I could never blend it properly. This makes my foundation not only last, but look amazing! I do still get oily, and I blot several times throughout the day but I hardly care about that when my makeup looks so natural and smooth. I'm almost out so I'm going to buy more today :)
I bought this for around 130 Canadian for the large bottle from Shoppers. I LOVE this. I had a sample before, and knew when my birthday came around I'd definitely be getting this. The 15 000 bonus optimum points were great too :) This just smells amazing night or day.
I bought this a month ago on a whim because I needed a new concealer and wanted something with a wand. I blend it in around my eyes so it doesn't look too heavy, but I just dot it onto zits and veins, wait til it dries, and stipple my foundation on afterwards. It really does hide them completely that way. I'll definitely be buying this again.
I use this stuff day and night and I love it. It's the only moisturizer I've used that hasn't broken me out and my skin looks amazing because of it! It hydrates my skin, and doesn't make it feel greasy at all. I've been using it for ages and still have tons of it left but when I need to I'll be buying this again for sure.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power - Cream Wash

I love this stuff! I've been using it for about a month now, and it has been clearing up the stubborn acne on my chin, and hasn't irritated my skin at all (or dried it out). I love the way it smells, and I find you don't need to use very much to cover your face & neck. It removes my makeup (Revlon Colorstay) just fine, and I always follow up with some witch hazel just to make sure. I will definitely be repurchasing.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush (Stippling, Skunk Brush)
blondie86 8/23/2009 2:14:00 AM
Bought this recently on a trip to the mall and I'm in love! This brush is AMAZING. Definitely lives up to the hype, and I don't regret the amount of money I spent on it. Would definitely repurchase if I had to.
I've worn this twice so far, which I'm sure isn't enough to give a good review but I've already had mixed results. The first time I wore it was on a long car ride home from the cottage... about 7 hours give or take. It didn't even last half the trip. The second time I've worn it, which is today... it's still there, but I'm definitely getting very oily and I'm not usually this oily. I'll give it a bit more time to see how it goes with my skin, definitely wasn't impressed with the application today. We shall see. **EDIT** I tried this again with a different primer (monistat gel) and I LOVE IT. It looks great and not too too matte which I like. I still have to blot every now and then but I'm definitely impressed. People even comment saying it doesn't really look like I'm wearing makeup! Changing my rating to a 5.
