This is defnitely a splurge item for me, given the high price for the small amount. I like that this is an all natural scrub and it smells beachy. I will repurchase.
This scissors are great and it gets the job done! I would repurchase.
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Professionnel Platinum Air Brush #56
clarissa90 4/24/2013 11:05:00 PM
This is a great brush and I find that it is similar to the 45 brush since it is so versatile. I can use it for setting powder, foundation, blush, or bronzer. This has been a great investment for me and the price is reasonable. I would repurchase.
These are great drugstore eye shadows and you can't go wrong for the price. I took one lippie off since they break very easily. I will repurchase.
Diss on MAC all you want, but you can't deny that they have something for everyone. They have different lipstick finishes and shades so there should be something there for you. I admire MAC lipsticks since I feel like they were one of the first companies to offer nude/light shades of lipsticks. Other brands often discontinue nude shades or use a undesirable finish therefore they don't cater to all their customers. I dislike the lustre finish though, it has no lasting power at all. I will repurchase.
I seem to be in the minority here, but I really dislike Victoria's Secret. Their marketing is genius though. Their bras are mass made in China and lack quality. Their lingerie is purely for show and you are better off buying lingerie somewhere else like a boutique, Nordstrom, or Soma Intimates. I have had positive experiences buying bras from the UK/ Europe. The price that you pay for the quality is ridiculous. Their activewear is also overpriced. Old Navy blows them out of the water and has lasted me longer. I will not repurchase.

This is a nice gloss, but it has no pigment. I will not repurchase.
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Walgreens Oil Absorbing Sheets
clarissa90 4/16/2013 8:25:00 PM
I bought this after I heard this after I heard they are a good dupe for the Clean & Clear brand. I have never tried the Clean & Clear brand since they are quite pricey and I don't use these sheets too often anyways. But these do job quite fine! I will repurchase.
This is my first Essie polish and I bought this since I heard it would be a dupe of OPI's Rumples Wiggins or Done Out in Deco. This polish seems to have a grey undertone and I don't seem to reach for it that much. Maybe its just my olive skin tone. I will not repurchase.
Eye Primer -NARS - Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
clarissa90 4/13/2013 11:20:00 PM
This is a great primer, but it works about the same as other brands for me such as Too Faced and Urban Decay. My issue with this product is the applicator. It is unsanitary and not as easy to use as a tube. I will not purchase.
This products does what it says, it brightens the eyes. Since I have bought this, I have discovered a similar product made by Laura Mercier. I prefer that product since it is softer on the eyes and easy to use. I will not repurchase.
If you thought dazzleglasses have a lot of shimmer, wait until you see this. I noticed there was a yellowish shade on my lips, but that was the shimmer not the actual lipgloss. It looks really tacky on and I think that Stila needs to step up their game and stopping selling bad products. I will not repurchase.
I’m a huge fan of Urban Decay face products, so I knew I had to try this out. The pore perfecting primer is HG for me. It was also well advertised and I remember the initial reviews were positive. So I marched down to Sephora and I got a sample that lasted me a full week. Therefore I had some time to see if it was for me or not. The foundation is advertised as demi-matte, but it was more matte for me. I would say it was about the same as all my other matte foundations that I have owned in the past. The coverage was definitely medium. This didn’t look all that great on me.I seem to prefer more of a "glow" and I don't get that with this foundation. I hope to try Estee Lauder next. I will not purchase.
Styling Products -TRESemme - tres two extra hold hairspray
clarissa90 4/8/2013 11:41:00 PM
I bought a travel size of this hairspray to try it out and I will not be purchasing the full size. It doesn't hold as well as Bed Head or Big Sexy Hair for me. I will not repurchase.
