First of all, the price is great! I bought mine for about $4.00 cdn. It doesn't make up for what the actual product is about though. I have heard many complaints of the powder shattering and cracking up when it is dropped. It has horrible oil control, doesn't have good coverage (looks like a mask when over applied) and the puff gets very gross after a while. That means you have to keep buying replacements. It does have a bad smell. Even though the price is great, I think that quality is better and I'd rather spend a little bit more and get something that'll last me longer.
It's extremely shiny and beautiful! I love black nail polish and this one makes me feel more glam than it makes me feel emo. :] It dries very quickly and the bottle is gorgeous. It's also Chanel (bonus, ding, ding, ding!) and it's worth the extra money. It does have a bit of a small brush but I love the end result.
Crème -Maybelline - True Illusion Liquid-To-Powder Makeup

I agree with the other people below me, it's horrible for oily skin. Even though I have fairly normal skin, it does not control oil at all. It is also not very long-lasting. I had to remove it by mid-day because it started looking horrible! It's currently sitting in my back of my makeup drawer and I haven't touch it since the first day I put it on.
Palettes -Bobbi Brown - Mauve Face Palette Fall 2008
Meljolie 10/8/2008 12:08:00 AM
I love this palette! The colours are perfect for what I'm looking for for the season. It goes on really well and STAYS on. I have tried wearing 2 of the lighter-medium tones for the day and quickly reapplying a darker shade on my crease for a party in the evening. I was surprised it stayed on the whole day (even if it needed minor touch-ups here and there.) It is Bobbi Brown so you will not find it being drugstore cheap. I think it's worth your money if you tend to wear eyeshadow a lot. If it's just for a special occasion, maybe not. As for the lips, I'm not a fan of purple! It looks icky on me and I will definately stick with lip glosses and sticks OUTSIDE my palettes.
I love this product! It smells great and it's not too heavy. Like the name of this hair mist says, it's totally fresh! I would definitely buy this again and again and again! It's a must-have! :]
It's very thick. It doesn't leave my lips extremely sticky so that is one good thing for it. I also don't like how it leaks out of the container, even though I am a sucker for the cute little bottle.
It glides on wonderfully and it is not sticky at all. It does have an odd smell but it's something I can live with. It is expensive as well. Overall, I would say it's pretty good.
I don't think there is any super special about this product. It works too a certain amount of decency, however it's not the best I've tried. It doesn't build my lashes' length up too much and I don't feel my lashes are as thick as they can be (from previous mascaras I've tried). This is an so-so, okay mascara.
This is my official favorite perfume! :] I'm very into summery, floral perfumes and this one totally fits into what I love. It's light and fresh and it doesn't feel like a dived into a pool of cheap perfume. The bottle is gorgeous as well! I think I'm going to get the gorgeous solid perfume daisy ring soon!
The only thing I have to say is horrible qualitity. It's messy and hard to use and it chips off too easily. I have a big probelm with little brushes because I don't have all the time in the world to slowly paint it over all my nails and have it look like a streaky mess! It also doesn't come in a wide variety of colours. I know I'm totally a brand whore, but I bought it because it was NARS. :P Now I know better to stick with my OPI or Chanel.
I love it! The brush is good, although it starts to get a bit loose after vigorous use for a few weeks :P. It produces a nice line and it doesn't look too fumbly like some liquid eyeliners I have tried. It also stays put on your eye and doesn't smudge! I recommend this eyeliner if your looking for a good liquid eyeliner and a decent price.
Deodorants -Dove - Dove deodorant/antipersperant original scent
Meljolie 10/7/2008 11:34:00 PM
This is the ONLY deodorant I use now! The smell is mild and not overpowering but it definately covers any embarassing odours from my underarms. The price is great and the packaging is pretty! I don't have any cons with it.
The price is really good for liquid foundation but like all drugstore foundations, I didn't expect for it to work miracles. It matches wonderfully with my skin tone, however as the day continued my face began to crack up, especially on the forehead area. It doesn't feel too heavy but it is not super light-weight as well. It's not the best I've tried but it's not the worst. It's so-so. :|
Eye Makeup Remover -Annabelle - Eye Makeup Remover Pads
Meljolie 10/7/2008 11:25:00 PM
I bought this product because of the price (super cheap!) and because I wanted to experiment with using a pad form of makeup remover instead of liquid. It works really well with my sensitive eyes because it does not sting at all. It's pretty good except, the only problem I had with it was that it's not effective. Even with my plain pencil eyeliner it took a bit of scrubbing and way longer than using my usual Covergirl makeup remover. I don't think I will buy it again
