Liquid -Lancome - Teint Idole ULTRA [DISCONTINUED]
Jetaime 1/8/2008 12:37:00 AM
This is a beautiful foundation! I have acne prone, combination skin. I am very sensitive to cosmetics and tend to break out from foundation. This liquid foundation glides on smooth and easily to apply. It looks incredibly natural but provides coverage and is long lasting. I've not once broken out from this foundation. I adore it! Maybe a little pricey but worth it.
Lip Treatments -Soap and Glory - Sexy Motherpucker Lip Gloss
Jetaime 1/6/2008 6:31:00 PM
I bought this in nude after it being recommended by the Makeup board. It looks dark in the tube as others have noted so I was little worried as I am a PPP with blonde hair. However, on me, it goes on a nice medium nude with lots of gloss. I felt a tingling sensation (if you don't feel it right away don't worry, just a wait a minute or so) and my lips did look plumper! I have full lips naturally so YMMV but after using this product, my lips looked noticeably fuller especially my top lip. I'm looking forward to trying this in another shade! Cute packaging, good price, and yummy chocolate-y smell! Divine.
Cleansers -Biore - Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser
Jetaime 1/5/2008 10:44:00 PM
I really like this cleanser! The warming effect is nice, although I'm not sure what the purpose is other than kicks and it doesn't last long. The cleanser is a little sticky but goes on well and smells nice. It leaves my skin soft and smooth. As far as blackheads go, I have noticed a minimized appearance of the blackheads on my nose. Mine are quite stubborn so I'm pleased to see my pores clean up a little! I sometimes spread this cleanser on my face before a hot bath and leave it on for about five minutes. I will repurchase.
Scrubs -Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Facial Scrub
Jetaime 1/5/2008 10:40:00 PM
I use this product in the mornings before taking a shower. I typically use a prescription face wash at night which is too strong for twice daily use. The scrub does a nice job of lightly exfoliating my skin and removing impurities. I don't think it smells bad--just sort of clean and chemically at the same time. It hasn't caused breakouts for me or changed my skin *that* much. It's a nice product but I probably won't repurchase because I like to try different things and this one doesn't wow me.
Hypnose by Lancome is my HG mascara! I have been a long time wearer of Definicils mascara, also by Lancome. I find this mascara makes my lashes darker, thicker, and bolder. It's a more dramatic look than definicils, really makes my eyes pop and look sexy. It doesn't make my eyes sting like a lot of less expensive mascaras I've tried and doesn't smear. It can be a little clumpy so I make sure wipe excess off the wand before use. Great mascara!
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - Fruit Spritzers-Watermelon Splash
Jetaime 12/27/2007 8:48:00 PM
This lipgloss is much better than I expected. It's a nice, light red color on me. Unlike the other reviews, I found the staying power to be fairly long lasting. It is a little sticky but perhaps that helps it last. The packaging is cute and easy to use. I'll be using this lipgloss when I want a juicy red lip :)
I adore this foundation. My mom bought it first and gave it to me after realizing it was a shade too light for skin. It gives nice moderate coverage and hides my pores and blemishes. I haven't experienced any breakouts, a wonder for me! I feel like this foundation makes me look a lot more polished and finished than your normal liquid. I usually alternate between this foundation and Lancome's Teint Idole Ultra.
This blush is my HG! I have it in "Rose Fresque', which I couldn't find in other reviews! I like to experiment with different makeup lines but I always come back to Lancome for my staples. I'm a LLL and this color is a perfect, natural shade. If you're looking for a big "pop" of color, I wouldn't recommend this shade. However, it's the perfect shade to awaken your skin. It is pricey as others have said. I feel like at this cost, they could give you a more useful brush! This does last me quite a while so the price is worth it!
Shampoo -Kiehls - Herbal Protein Concentrate Shampoo
Jetaime 8/11/2007 6:38:00 PM
This is my favorite shampoo! It makes me hair soft and clean without that dry brittle feeling. I have an oily scalp and dry ends. I've found with this shampoo I can usually give my hair a day off from shampooing if I have to and not look like a grease ball. It smells divine. Sadly, I don't get to purchase this shampoo as much as I'd like since I'm on a college students budget!
Eye Shadow -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Eyeshadow 14 Plum Pop
Jetaime 8/11/2007 6:22:00 PM
I recommend using a small amount of this eyeshadow. I'm a LLL with green eyes and find that using my normal amount makes me look like I have black eyes! This is a dark shade for someone like me. It's fun for a night out and has good staying power. However, I'm not sure I'd repurchase bc it's just a little strong for me!
Eye Shadow -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Shadow-Pale Moon
Jetaime 8/11/2007 6:19:00 PM
I must have different coloring than other reviewers because this eyeshadow shows up well on me! It's a pretty mauve color with shimmer. I've found the Pure Color shadows to be quite silky. The lasting power is somewhat questionable. I usually find myself reapplying after 3-4 hours. However, I haven't found a nice eyeshadow that lasts longer than that. Still, I recommend this eyeshadow for PPPs and LLLs!
Eye Shadow -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Eye Shadow- Ivory Box
Jetaime 8/11/2007 6:15:00 PM
I love this eyeshadow! I have green eyes and it really enhances the color. I look much more awake and refreshed. A beautiful color, only or with other shadows! I agree with others that it could be more pigmented.
Eye Shadow -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Eye Shadow in Tea Biscuit
Jetaime 8/11/2007 5:58:00 PM
As others have mentioned, this is one of my everyday eyeshadows. I generally wear it to class because it's pretty enough to stand out but subdued enough for daytime. I love the silky feel. I don't have a problem with this eyeshadow wearing off and it blends well with other colors.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expert Eyes Duo - Lasting Lilac
Jetaime 8/9/2007 9:55:00 PM
This eyeshadow is okay. I love the lilac colors for my green eyes. The lighter shade shows up on my fair skin but it takes careful applying and then wears off too soon! I don't like the dark purple. It reminds me of black eye and smears in seconds. Won't repurchase.
Lip Treatments -SoftLips - Cherry Lip Protectant/Sunscreen SPF20
Jetaime 8/9/2007 9:48:00 PM
Good updated version of chapstick! The packaging is stylish and appealing. I love the light cherry scent and tingling sensation. It moisturizes pretty well. I don't mind reapplying!
