Mascara -Make Up For Ever - Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara
rockstar00 6/14/2011 9:10:00 AM
This mascara was fabulous for such a short time before it went dry, clumping and just horrible to work with. Typically, I only use my mascaras for 3mos then I toss them. This mascara dried up in about a 6 weeks, 45-50 days of everyday use. I loved the mascara for the first month or so. It is the perfect black pigment, and the volume is a wonderful wow factor but it dries out imho too quickly for the rather pricey tag.

This bent eyeliner brush is perfect for cream eyeliner application. This brush is inexpensive and never fails me. This is the only cream eyeliner brush I own and I am not interested in trying any others, that is just how good this one is!
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum Express The Falsies Flared
rockstar00 6/13/2011 6:34:00 PM
First I would like to say that I am a mascara maniac! Mascara is one cosmetic item that I will not live without. I do practice the 3mos toss mascara in the garbage mindset so I go through about 6-10mascaras a year. I have my day va va voom mascara and my night lashes rockstar mascara. I picked this mascara up at Walgreens for $8 usd. I purchased 01 Very Black Flared. The mascara is lightly scented but nothing unbearable. It is wet but not streaky, drippy wet. The wand is fat and curved. I have naturally long eyelashes so I only needed one coat of this mascara. One coat and WOWZER! Talk about Flared!!!! The very black color is fantastic as I only wear black mascara and the darker the better as far as I am concerned. My lashes looked amazing with just one coat. With 2 coats this mascara gave my lashes a fabulous false eyelash effect I went up to 4 coats and my lashes looked longer, thicker and flared. This is my new favourite mascara. Move over MUFE smokey lash, CG Lash Blast and Rimmel Sexy Curves there is a new sheriff in town!
Hands down the BEST drugstore lippies on the market. First let me say that I have not bought a drugstore lipsitck in over 10 years. I was skeptical but the word of mouth and the Drew Barrymore ads tweeked my interest. I am a bright lip wearing chic, I love my reds, hot pinks and orange lippies. My collection ranges from CHANEL in Paris (love), NARS in Funny Face (adore) and MAC in Vegas Volt (total rockstar)! So, I decided to dip my toes in CG Lip Perfection in FLAME (gorgeous) and Divine (just Divine). I love both colors equally. I purchased them at Walgreens buy 1 get one 50% off with RR so they were free! yay! Flame is a tomato red Divine is a purplely pink both are gorgeous. These lippies are very hydrating, moisturizing and after a few hours they leave the most beautiful tint/stain on the lip. Ahhh, just gorgeous! I love the tint/stain these lippies leave. IMHO the stain is the cherry on top of the cake! You can either rock out the stain or smack on a gloss and WOW the look is fantastic! I will be adding Spellbound, Hot and maybe a few others to my collection! Way to go Cover Girl!
This is a perfect Tomato Red drugstore lipstick. I found it hydrating, moisturizing, and very pigmented. I also appreciate the red tint left behind after about a 3 hour wear. These lipsticks are also lightly scented but not an over the top. I plan on buying a few more of these CG lippies. They are fab!
This Blush color rocks period
Firstly, I will say that Nars should have listed this item as a highlighter duo. It does not work as a blush. As a highlighter it is fantastic! I am a glitter girl and this product makes me happy. It is classy glitter and looks fabulous on. It is a limited edition item so I am glad I have one and will probably have it for a while. It delivers just the right amount of highlight/glitter to any of my matte blushes and it works great on my shoulders, cleavage and legs.
This is my very first highlighter and I am happy with it. It is simply gorgeous! It gives me a beautiful movie star glow. I apply it to my cheekbones and cupids bow. I said I would buy this product again but I don't think I will have to for a long time since there is so much product in the tube. I
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 100% Pure Shea Butter
rockstar00 4/4/2010 4:46:00 PM
This Shea cream felt nice. That is about it. Nothing to write home about. I went into the store looking for a honey moisturizer that I really liked but it was discontinued. I decided to try something new so I picked this up. Not worth the price tag.
These brushes are deliciously soft. It takes some working to get product on the brushes. These brushes are fantastic for heavily pigmented products or for overall dusting of bronzer etc. I purchased the powder brush, blush brush, an eyeshadow blender brush and a blender brush. All four brushes came out to about $70 at Target. Thankfully, they do not shed and overall are pretty good. I like them and decided to keep the powder brush and the blush brush. The rest are going back.
I purchased this bronzer at my local drugstore. It cost about 10$. I have purchased the version with the moon in the corner a few times and I love it. I have sensitive/combo olive skin and these bronzers deliver beautiful color and they never irritate my sensitive skin. However, the quality of the packaging is the worst of all time. Both of my PF bronzers are being held together with rubber bands. The matte bronzer is a highlighter, bronzer and eye shadow and it comes with a brush and mirror on the opposite side. Which is actually all kind of cool. The mirror never gets dusty and I have used the little applicator brush. I actually like the little applicator brush. I had a Lancome bronzer that I la la loved but, it was LE and once it was gone I had to go back to old breaky lid and rubberband around my bronzy! Truth is that the bronzer in the PF is just as good as the Lancome one I enjoyed wearing. Will I buy this bronzer again? for sure! The product is stellar and it has a pretty affordable price.
This mascara totally ROCKS it out! I have long full lashes and this bad boy gives me fantastical rocker in your face thick black lashes!! I love it. I switch it up between Rimmel Sexy Curves and Lash Blast. While Sexy Curves give me coquettish super long and feathery sexy full lashes. Lash Blast gives me the Rockstar feel of long, thick black and a hardcore false lash look. I will buy this mascara over and over and over! I actually purchased Lash Blast in Midnight Royale. Once I am done with the black version I will rip open the package to the Royale! woohoo!
This review is for the RIMMEL Sexy Curves mascara in the purple tube. I purchased this mascara based on reviews from two of my favourite make up gurus on you tube. For the record I have tried at least a dozen mascaras and I needed a change. I have long full lashes. I have used Loreal Voluminous (love), Diorshow (uber love), Lancome definicils (happy love) and as of late Lash Blast (nice surprise love) (I will write a review on LB). Sexy Curves (in love) is FABULOUS! WOW! My lashes most definitely look SEXY and for sure they curl up and wide giving my eyes an even wider sexier look. If you like the false lash look this mascara is a winner! I have been using Sexy Curves Mascara for about two weeks on and off. I switch it up with Lash Blast. These two mascaras will be my staple mascaras from now on. I recommended this mascara to my mother and some of my friends and they all love it. I have not tried the Waterproof version as typically I am not a fan of waterproof mascaras. Aside from the special huge eyelash effects this mascara gives me it is also very easy to take off and it does not flake or cake up. It goes on smooth and creamy and does not leave my eyelashes feeling crunchy. It cost about 7$ which is a pleasant surprise for a mascara that gives high end mascara results.
I love this product. It goes on deliciously smooth and the nudeish/pinkish tone goes perfectly with my olive skin tone. I purchased one tube and decided to go back the next day to purchase a back up tube. I will admit this lipstick/solid lipgloss does not stay on like other brands. But, I like to reapply my lipstick a few times a day anyway. This is definitely my new favorite.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
rockstar00 5/28/2006 8:21:00 PM
I was not impressed with this moisturizer. I wanted something light and it felt sticky. I ended up returning it. The clinique saleslady advised me that this is Cliniques top selling moisturizer selling one every 3 minutes around the world. Oh well. Sorry but I did not like the feel of the product.
