Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express Turbo Boost Waterproof

I wear glasses and it is really annoying when your lashes hit the glasses and smudge the lens leaving flakes and smudges. -This mascara leaves a natural look -It doesn't clump and provides definition -I doesn't provide instant length or volume -can be buildable -It is waterproof against tears but I wouldn't go swimming with this -the wand is a good size and easy to use -doesn't smudge or flake throughout the day -would re-purchase if on sale or until I find something I like more
I really love felt tip liners! They are so easy to apply. I don't like this particular liner though. It wears off right after I put it on and comes off in patches..I have a single eyelid and I don't understand why it wears off! It doesn't even last 1 minute on. The formula seems nice and black but the staying power is non-existent. -love the packaging -love the applicator -horrible formula -doesn't stay on for even a minute (literally) -doesn't stay on with a setting powder on top -will repurchase until I find something better < I know total waste of money for something that doesn't work but the packaging is the best
Eyeliner -Joe Fresh Style - Fine Tip Liquid Eyeliner

I really wanted to love this product more. It was one of my first liquid liners and it came in the perfect packaging. It is very fine and has a felt tip applicator. It is very easy to apply and easy to control. BUT..the formula is not as black as I would like and it smudges. It does not last long and fades very easily. ( within 20 minutes) Bad formula..great concept and packaging But...I would repurchase. I'm a sucker for the felt tip, fine point, and marker style packaging.
I was in search of a good lipbalm to smooth my dry feeling lips. I tend to wear a lot of lipgloss or lipstick..causing my lips to become dry. Originally I was going to purchase the milk&honey one but since this one came in a pack of two..I thought it was a better deal. -smooth texture -lasts for 3+ hours -neutral smell -lots of product -leaves a waxy finish on the lips and horrible under lipstick. I don't like it and most likely will not repurchase.
This smelled great and the best part is, it actually lasted for a long time. It is very creamy and white in colour. It made my skin feel less dry and smoother. I really enjoyed this. I can't rate this out of 5 but I would give it 78% out of 100
Gels/Soaps -Olay - Ultra Moisture with Shea Butter

This body wash smelled so calming and soothing. It is a very nice fragance. The body wash is very creamy and is white in colour. It lathers up really well and applies very easily and smoothly. It left my skin smelling amazing and noticably more mosturized.
Bronzers -New York Color - Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny 720

I thought I would really like this bronzer but I am disappointed :( It didn't show up on my skin at all..I couldn't see a little bit of colour. I don't think it's pigmented enough and it is just too light If it was 2 shades darker..it would be more successful Disappointed and unsatisfied
This was a pretty nice gloss It is not sticky and has a smooth texture. I love how it doesn't have my shimmers and it is really nice and creamy It gives of a subtle layer of colour and shine. I have a medium -yellow based skin tone and it still loves really pretty It looks natural and not overly done I really liked this and I bought it over the VIVA GLAM CYNDI one. My first lipglass and probably won't be the last. I am pretty impressed with the texture and quality but the price is a little outrageous for just a gloss.
Fragrances -Crabtree & Evelyn - Rosewater Eau Fraiche

I really love this scent from Crabtree & Evelyn. When I first smelled this in the store it smelled really floral and sophisitcated with a feminine aura I bought this with my dad for my mother on Valentine's Day and we both share it. I smells different at the store then at home.. At home it gives off a "lychee" smelling scent and not as "floraly" I still love this scent though and if it wasn't as expensive as it is...I would spray this everywhere, in my room, in my bathroom, on my bed, on my clothes lalalala I love it!
Treatments -L'Oreal - Hair detangler (l'oreal kids)
tubbyloves 3/17/2011 8:38:00 PM
I used this when I was a kid and I remember how much I loved it :) I don't remember it really detangling my hair..I had really really bad split ends as a child and would always have to cut 3 inches of my hair because of this repeated problem. Soo knots and kinks were all over my head. It smells like apples and is really fresh and fruity. I remember it making my hair feel kinda sticky if I sprayed too much of it. Not too bad but I don't find myself using it as I get older
I just got this lipstick and didn't really have any expectations for it. I really love this lipstick. It is the perfect peachy/natural/beige/nude colour for tan girls with warm undertones. Does not wash you out but covers up any red-ness in your lips to provide a nice natural peach sheen. I love it and it's not drying at all. It feels like a balm and lasts a long time, even after eating. LOVE IT.
This was my first powder foundation. It really serves the mattying aspect, it keeps my face shine-free for most of the day The coverage is not good enough for my blemish-prone skin... In the future, I plan to use this as a setting powder/touch up powder It is a little too yellow for me, but it blends rather well. I like it but it's definitely not worth the money I paid. $25 Canadian is too much for such an ok product ***It doesn't make me break out (I have sensitive, acne prone, combo-oily skin)
-I really liked this concealer, it is a lightweight liquid/creamy consistency -It has a highlighting property which brightens up my horrid under eye circles (thanks to the lack of sleep from exams) -I really like the packaging, it's nice and small to keep in a makeup bag or for travel. Not really thick/pigmented enough to conceal blemishes or pimples. -It works amazing for dark circles, will buy again :)
This was not bad It looked great it the pan but I would suggest that they rename this product. It is not really a bronze colour but a muted medium-warm pink with hints of peach Will look nice on a lighter skin tone. I actually really like this shade, because it warms up and face and it makes me look healthy and pretty. I LOVE peach-toned blushes and this is one of the "no-brainer" type of colours as it matches any look. Relatively pigmented and has some shimmer, but hardly noticeable.

Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Blush 831E Pearlescent Pink

This was okay It has a lot of shimmer to it, so be careful It is a warm peach/pink colour with silver/golden shimmers It doesn't really show up on my skin...all I get are shimmers I don't mind shimmery blushes, I think it makes a person look polished and put together but with this, it doesn't really show up on medium skin tones. Will continue to use and try on top of foundation I naturally have redness/pinkness to my cheeks (maybe thats why I don't notice the difference) I never tried this with foundation Good blush or fair/light skin tones and younger women.
