Bronzers -Too Faced - Caribbean in a Compact in Sun Bunny
MsLips 1/12/2009 2:12:00 AM
I don't know what's up with Too Faced's blushes and bronzers...i break out from them!!! I really loved the creme brulee blush because it was the perfect bronze cheek color, but everytime i wore it, my cheeks would break out and it would be so hard to get rid of those pimples! Now I've been wanting this bronzer...finally got it the other day and as i washed my face, i had so many new pimples form i was sooo sad i wanted to cry!! I'm so pissed off because TF makes such great face colors, yet they break me out like crazy! I have a feeling its the shimmer in their products because some blushes from their kits with no shimmer wouldn't bug me...im just so mad because i love how tan this makes me. The cons are...breaks me out and it's shimmery so it makes me look oily esp. when i get oilier throughout the day...gosh i wish sugar never dced their bronzer, it was the best. Now I'm using Mac's matte bronze which im very pleased with.
This has got to be the best kabuki i have ever had, and i have quite a few. I was so mad my Japonesque bronzer brush broke off the base!! i loved it, but this one is so much better. I already had the 181 which is a cute tiny version of this, but this is better for my bronzer/msf's/bare minerals to use. It buffs everything on so smoothly and streakless and makes my skin looks so flawless. I really hope this one doesnt break or else I will be very mad! lol
I love this one. First of all the texture is velevety soft and smooth. The color is a red/orange shade, but i wish it would show up more vibrant on me like it does in the compact.
Primer/ Corrector -Sue Devitt - Microquatic Fortifying Primer

I really like this primer. It's the most hydrating primer I have and it feels so nice on the skin, it's perfect for winter or fall too. It smells so good too! I wouldn't say it holds my makeup 100%, but it does a decent job. My makeup goes on nicely with this under. I love that it doesn't break me out. I still love Smashbox Photo Finish bronzing primer so much. I just feel that when I put this on my skin I'm doing good for it. It's a primer with no silicones in it, so it doesn't sit on top of your skin, it gets absorbed in it. Also it has seaweed extracts, antioxidants, and vitamins that all will improve the skin's texture long term and help prevent aging damage.
Makeup Brushes -Lola Cosmetics - Rounded Blush Brush

I LOVE this brush! It's super soft! I love the way it looks, black handle with red soft metallic part that holds the bristles and the cute Lola logo. This is a very nice brush that's good for applying just the right amount. It picks up the color really well, so one dip and tap is good. The quality is amazing and super soft, i love it!
I really like this one, but I don't see myself wearing it too often. Moschino's Funny is still my all time favorite fragrance. But anyways, this one smells really sweet. I hate the old Juicy Couture fragrance..i don't get why so many are crazy about it, esp.teens, but damn does it give me a headache/nauseous feeling! The bottle was very inviting and the hot pink packaging with gold letters was super cute. I have to say I LOVE the bottle...it's the same as the old one, but it has a cute gemstone-like cap with a fuschia ribbon and a juicy couture gold chain...so cute. I was going to buy the little rollerball, but that was too small and i felt like i was going to regret not getting the big one because i was able to get a bigger discount that day (I work at Ulta) This is a very sweet smelling fragrance with vanilla/caramel and fruitiness to it. All you really need is like 2 spritzes because it's strong. I do like it, but it gives me a headache sometimes...i know it would get tiring if i wore it everyday, i don't want to get sick of it. I bought the 1.7 oz which is 65.00 and will last me a long time since I won't wear it daily. It doesn't help that almost all of my co-workers spray it on too lol. This is def perfect for fall/winter...a very warm fragrance.
Crème -Sue Devitt - Triple C-weed Whipped Foundation

I have to say this is one of my most favorite foundations!! It feels like it covers sheerly, but for me I get medium-full coverage with this stuff. It feels nice and cool as I put it on and it dries to a nice airbrushed finish. I really don't use a ot as I feel I get good coverage with only a tiny bit. I just love it! It doesn't break me out either and it is great to know that as I'm wearing this it has triple seaweed extracts for anti-aging benefits and gives good hydration so this is perfect for winter. It is also very long-lasting and gives that great skin look. It is 40 dollars but it is worth it because you don't need a lot and because of all the amazing ingredients. I have tan skin and Nullarbor Plain is my perfect match.
This is a really good concealer. I bought it based on the reviews here and I have to agree. Although it covers very nicely, and the color is great for my dark circles, but it just seems too dry sometimes, i really love a concealer that blends and melts very easily, this takes a little extra effort to do that. I've been using my Ben Nye cover all wheel lately and loving that, but even that seems dry sometimes. This really impressed me when i covered my blemishes and it actually stayed on because of the Nylon-12 in it, even in hot hot weather so that's a plus. I wouldn't recommend this to women with lots of fine lines and wrinkles under their eyes since it's not as creamy. I agree with Jen, if I could do the same with just photo op under my eyes, i would, but sadly i won't ever be able to do that =/
If you want a smudgy look, this is for you. If not, then no. I personally like this, but I don't use it as a shadow alone because it's way too greasy and would crease. Instead, I wear it as a base, but don't apply it too heavily or else it will make the shadow crease. I love wearing it for dark smoky looks. If you have oily lids, I wouldn't suggest this.
This is a beautiful true aqua shade! It's super pigmented and I just love the price!
Amazing price, amazing quality!
The first Sally Girl eyeshadow I ever bought. It's a bright lime green shade with tons of pigment. I love it. It's very delicate though, it can break easily if you drop it even very lightly on the counter. I'm amazed by the price though 99 cents! I now own the purple and aqua shade. I need to get more!
Hollywood Nights is one of my fave Mac lipsticks. It's a gorgeous creamy matte fuschia shade. I always get compliments on it. I love to wear Style Minx on top for a brighter, bolder lip. It's also very long lasting! The packaging is glam!

One of my favorites! It's a GORGEOUS bright fuschia shade that looks fabulous over hollywood nights.
Masks -Pur Minerals - Mineral Mudd Masque with Pascalite
MsLips 10/8/2008 3:51:00 PM
This has got to be the best pore drawing mask I ever had. This is incredible!!! I've had over 20 masks in my life and this one is so fun to use! It is good for all skin types! I have combo/oily acne prone skin so i use it once a wk, 2-3x is rec. for oily skin, 1 time for drier skin. You have to use more for it to spread easily, because if you use it thinly, it is harder to spread. It is made with a clay derived mineral called Pascalite found in the volcanoes in Mexico. The Indians back then used Pascalite to extract poisonous venom out. This ingredient is patented under Pur Minerals. I use it for 30 mins to get the best result. It feels REALLY tight on your skin, you can feel it working to draw out the pores. It does get itchy after it's dried, but don't worry it's worth it. Once it's washed off, I have such clean, poreless looking skin. It's a great feeling! I recommend this mask to EVERYONE. This can be found at Ulta and it is 25.00.
