This may be my favorite lip gloss ever, and I am a major junkie! I have a gift set from Christmas and right now I am wearing Guava Passion. It smells wonderful and doesn't taste bad either :) My lips are super shiny and the gloss is very light. Infact, my lip never looked so plump and lucious! I keep starring at them -_- The applicator is not all that bad too. The colour payoff is pretty sheer, but it looks great. Would def. repurchase.
Primer/ Corrector -Lise Watier - Base Miracle – Pore Minimizing Primer

I like this foundation because it does keep my skin more matte than any other primer I have tried, does not break me out, very few ingredients, and it is Canadian. I like the silky texture but I am not a fan of the packaging; I think a more hygenic way to dispose of the product would be a pump. Overall, I would definatley repurchase this item.
Foundations -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15
keekz 4/28/2012 5:46:00 PM
My skin had no issues with this foundation (as in breakouts). I loved the creamy, clay-ish texture and it was a dream to apply. I applied with a skunk brush and got good coverage. It made me look quite flawless... but i noticed after aq few hours I was shiny. This foundation was PERFECT except for the fact that is has GD sparkled in it! WHY!!! this is a foundation for oily skin, glitter only accentuates this fact. I was so hoping it would work but it did not :( returned. Dear Tarte, take out the glitter!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Eden
keekz 4/28/2012 5:34:00 PM
I like the original potion much better. I bought this and have been wearing it for a long time because I am too lazy to purchase the original. The primer doesn't do much except make the colours look a little bit stronger. After the day is done, most days when I'm wearing a bold look, my eyeshadow is creased. This never happened with the original. Also, I noticed that even though I apply the potion to my whole lid, dark colours are more pigmented on some spots than others. I will not buy this again as it did not live up to standards.
Self Tanners -St.Tropez - Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion
keekz 4/28/2012 5:28:00 PM
This product is AMAZING! I am very pale, pale to the point where people ask my on a regular is I am able to tan -_- well, after spending $50 to buy this, I can proudly say that I can (even if it isnt real hehe). After two applications of this, I had a glow and looked as if I came back from vacation. The glow was not just so-so, it was dark, believeable colour. On me?! I couldn't believe it. I used to use the creams in the drugstore like Jergens, and always wanted to puke after when I smelled myself. It was also very orange on me. Therefore, I thought all tanners would be the same. This is not- this is my HG for tanners! The pump is good, however, it broke on me after my 3rd or 4th time using it so that's a piss off.
I have mixed emotions about this perfume; I do really like the smell, but it is not a very versitle smell. I feel that it is a very dark and sexy smell? Opposed to soemthing that you could wear everyday. However, the packaging is very cute and I always get compliments from people when I wear this.
I like that this is a very basic and cheap drugstore cream that actually moisturizes. I also am a fan of the fact that I don't have to read 50 ingredients on the back in order to know what I'm putting on my face. As far as defying aging, Im not sure if it does anything as Im not at that age just yet. But for not, I love this cream. I do think that it would be more hygenic to come in a pump, but oh well!
This is my HG mascara even though I always stray from it. I stray because although I do like that it makes my lashes noticeable and thick, I still long for something else... like length. I find it is a dark mascara, but it doesn't do wonders. However, it is better than other drugstore mascaras I have tried.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Continuous Control Acne Cleaner
keekz 4/28/2012 5:16:00 PM
This is my HG cleanser, I have been using it for years and have never strayed from it. I sometimes get the occasional pimple, and I'm not sure whethre this cleanser by itself helps at all, but It never breaks me out. I love the creamy texture and It always wakes me right up! I also love that this has only a few ingredients that I can actually comprehend, and its main ingredient is BP.
Liquid -Marcelle - Oil Free Matte Finish Make Up in Normal/Oily/Combo Skin
keekz 4/28/2012 5:13:00 PM
I gave this foundation a 4 mainly because of the packaging. It is a very nice foundation, which doesnt break me out even after I sleep with it on (I know, very bad). It also controls my very shiny t-zone, and even when I am starting to shine, it is not as much as before. The colour selection is pretty good, and th coverage is good for someone who doesnt need high-coverage...it acts like a tinted moisutizer. The packing bothers me because you have to either dip your brush in it, or put the liquid on your had. For the price, personally Id expect a pump. I also paid it with the mattifying powder and it looks very natural, barely there.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation
keekz 2/27/2012 8:04:00 PM
Like the others, I bought this product because I wanted high coverage and photo-ready skin that didnt looked caked. However, when I bought it, it really was nothing special, even in photos. I am applying with my fingers, but will switch to using a stippling brush like the SA told me to do. If it does not help, unfortunatley it is going back. Pros: - i can sleep with this on and not breakout - love the pump - great colour match Cons: -$46 - doesnt live up to standards - doesnt seem much diff. than other foundations... EDIT: Left this on by itself without powder one day, and I was so mortified to see how greasy I looked I didnt even want to go outside or see anyone. This was returned.
basically, I am very pale and found it SUCH a pain in the butt to find a contour that worked. And by worked, I mean not looked orange and didnt look like mud either. This product was absulutley perfect, I could use a little for the day time around my nose or more for when id be out at night. Just bliss.
