Such pretty colors , unfortunately didn't last on me more than a day or two w/o chipping, I'm hard on my nails but I like to keep them polished.
I walked by the display with the apples in the store and had to spritz and then went back and purchased a bottle it really is a nice scent and I love the little apple bottle but the staying power just isn't there for me perhaps I've gotten spoiled with the eternal lasting power of BPAL's concoctions but I really was looking for something lighter for summer ,, I like the scent of Be Delicious but I don't think i'd buy it again because of the staying power/price ratio
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Colorstay 12-Hour Eyeshadow -General

I have 3 of the color quads, the blues, the berries and the greens and I love them I've thrown out my other eyeshadow singles and sets, the combos are endless and they really do blend well and last w/o creasing, I'm sure I'll be collecting more color quads.
At 32 with the maturity of 16..lol I don't have any wrinkles yet but I do notice that my skin texture/tone has dulled and my pores are more noticable than I'd like so I wanted to try something non drastic and I really like this the scrubbing action doesn't scare me like some of the more abrasive ones do but I can feel them working and my skin really does look more even toned and fresher I've even gone on morning errands w/o foundation which is a total rarity for me.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Lash Architect Mascara Waterproof Formula
Crispyhexagon 5/11/2005 7:10:00 PM
well pooh this doesn't smudge on me at all which is great I hate that dirty girl look alot of mascaras leave by the end of the day and it does make my lashes longer but it doesn't make them fuller and it does clump and I don't have the paitence to comb them out so I won't repurchase.
Oh dear,, I've been obsessed with perfect eyebrows for a few months now and thought this might be a nifty way to shape mine a little was excited by the lil stencils,, the sticky stencils were hard to keep stuck to my brows and THEN,, even after warming the wax it was soo thick and goopy and hard to apply just where I wanted it even with the pop sticks and the worst part, I applied the papers and rubbed like instructed but when I pulled them off the wax stayed on my eyebrows,, I used soapy water and makeup remover and for a few mns was scared to death I'd have to walk around with purple wax in my brows or else they'd all come out in clumps,, luckily I got it all out and neither happened but it was a reallly bad experience and I suppose I'll have to stick with ouchie tweezing for now
Dollar Tree for ,, yes one dollar..lol I actually bought this for the coral color in it , I read somewhere that coral is the color this spring/summer and I wasn't sure I could wear it so this was a cheap way to test the color,, really like the colors in this including the coral, lasts about the same as my regular drug store Maybeline/Covergirl/Almay type stuff, I'd def. buy other colors and this one again if I ran out.
I'm impressed , that's not easy to do..lol I bought the truly sugar plum and though it's perhaps not the perfect color for me, I'll try some others to find the right one this is the best longwearing lipcolor I've tried so far. I'm a single mom with a small business so my half hour shower/beauty routine is about all I get in the day for primping , this lasted through a double cheeseburger combo at BK and quite a few sodas during the day, washing my car by hand and it doesn't feel like it's balling up and isn't wearing off oddly.

Been using this with the matching shampoo for a few weeks and I'm super happy with it , I shampoo every other or every 3rd day to avoid over washing and drying out my hair before I started using this my hair was in need of a redye but I believe it'll be a while yet because my color has been recharged and is just lovely once again.
Shampoo -Pantene - Red Expressions Daily Color Enhancing Shampoo

The first time I used this I wasn't all that impressed , wasn't expecting to be but I've been using it for a few weeks now and wow , before I started using this my hair was at that fading red, must redye stage and the more I use it the more lovely my color is, now I only shampoo once every other or sometimes every 3rd day I found I was killing my hair by shampooing once sometimes twice a day, I've never been happier with it.
To think of all the $$ I spent on powders and this one is every bit as good, I have it in natural and for my paleness it's a great match, no itching , no shining I will def. purchase again. I do think they have a limited shade selection but this one works for me.
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Twist-up Blush Stick [DISCONTINUED]

Good stuff another one of my new makeup budget must cut back buys that I like alot, I have this in 721 and it's a great flushed but not hussy blush look for my paleness I put some lil circles on my apples and blend , not sure how long it lasts before it fades I rarely get time to check and do touch ups but I think it's just as good as more expensive blushes I used I don't like my face to scream that I'm wearing blush.
For my 4th round of cancer crap I decided one budget I could cut was my makeup but I refuse to look like crap so I thought I'd give some of the cheap lines a try and although this def. does not make my lashes as full as like my full and more expensive stuff this is great it doesn't flake and I really haven't noticed alot of smudging unless I rub my eyes , it does take a lil while to dry but I typically put my mascara on last anyhow because I'm a clutz and I found that if I do the bottom lashes first I dont get the mascara dots on my brow bone area from the top lashes being wet when I do the bottom ones. Foundation, lil blush and this mascara and I'm set to go for the morning
