Mascara -New York Color - Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara
tamedDOLL 7/21/2012 2:46:00 AM
This is such an upgrade from NYC's former lengthening mascara in the little grey tube. The old formula smudged and flaked, but this one doesn't. While this isn't 'Sky Rise', it still defines my lashes and darken them. I really like the brush. Its a good size to apply mascara. However it really isn't a lengthening mascara, despite the claims. It just does a very basic cheap mascara would do. My lashes aren't the shortest of short, but they only appear 3/4 of their actual length because I have single eyelids, and my lashes rolls in a bit. This mascara helps to bring them back out, with minimal clumping. This mascara would also be perfect for those who already have nice lashes, and just want to enhance them without looking dramatic or too long. However, I do find this smudges a bit, or else I would have gave this mascara a 3. The price is amazing though!:). So overall, not bad.
Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand - Veet Hair Removal Gel Cream For Dry Skin

I love this cream! I bought it for use on my bikini line, and it works well. It doesn't sting my skin, and does not irritate it either. I really like the formula, as it is moisturizing. I don't mind the smell, especially since its not really strong. This cream removes almost all of the hair I want removed, and is done within the 3-6 minutes. You just need to follow the instructions of using a wet wash cloth to remove it, then rinse :). It also lasts twice as long as shaving!
Misc Beauty Tools -Sephora - Heated eyelash curler

Uh, this is ridiculously CHEAP quality, but it still turned out to be better than I thought. I want to comment on making sure the battery is actually touching the battery part of the top. I noticed it wasn't working one day when I used a new battery. It might be why some of you think it has broken! It heats up decently when you have new batteries, but pretty much after a couple of times, its useless. The curler heats up pretty slow though. I like to at least give it a minute compared to the 15 seconds before using it. That sucks because it drains the battery, and adds to time consume. I have short, but not totally sparse lashes that point down, and this works kind of decent. Regular lash curlers take a lot of time, and require a lot of work on my short lashes. This heated curler somewhat helps me with a nice curl, however it takes way more than 2 -3 seconds for me to achieve the curl, even when I have applied mascara.
When my nose really needs some help with blackheads, I will use this, and it does an OK good job. It removes quite a bit,but only when you have A LOT of blackheads. I would only recommend using this once every 2 weeks at most. I personally only use them every 4 weeks. I do not have sensitive skin, but this did irritate my skin around my nose area when I used it every week. :( I only find it to hurt when I remove it is when I leave it on for too long. I also find it to work best after a shower, and make sure to thoroughly wet the nose before apply the strip. You also need to experience with good timing. If pulled too early or too late, the strip is pretty much useless. Overall, an OK product, but may irritate skin if used too often depending on your skin type.
Lip Treatments -Maybelline - Baby Lips lip balm in Pink Punch

This one is definitely my favorite. I love love love love the scent of this, and I don't mind smelling it a lot when its on my lips. Pink Punch also has the best pigmentation. I really like the pink. The color staying power is not bad for a tinted lip balm. My lips feel really smooth after applying it as well. Great for some color on the lips without the dryness of a lipstick:)
Lip Treatments -Maybelline - Baby Lips in Peach Kiss
tamedDOLL 5/5/2012 9:17:00 PM
This one is just ok for me, I won't be repurchasing. Its very sheer, and doesn't really show up on my lips. However, it does give a nice amount of shimmer or shine. I'm not too fond of the smell. Its a nice smell, but its not a smell that I want to keep smelling. Weird. There are some days that I can't stand smelling this. Peach Kiss is one of the best for moisture as a tinted one. I will continue to use it until I'm out.
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover
tamedDOLL 4/29/2012 7:08:00 PM
Removes all eye makeup very nicely. Does not sting my eyes or skin at all, very good for sensitive skin. I don't find this to be oily, and a little removes quite a bit. Also no residue left behind. No complaints :)
I can't decide if I really like this or not, but it's definitely not a bad product. The smell is a bit strong, and it lingers around for a day or two, but I don't find the smell to be too overwhelming. I actually like using this once every 2 weeks rather than once every week. It can dry out my ends a little bit, but nothing a regular conditioner on my ends can't fix for me. I expected great results from this, but I don't notice that big of a difference after using this shampoo. The 1L size is a good deal. I share a bottle with my mom and we shampoo twice with this and we only gone through less than a quarter of it after 3 months.
Okay, the first week I used this, I couldn't stand the smell, because I felt it was so strong. Now, its ok because I use the smallest amount for under my eyes. I only use it as a concealer base now, and it does a pretty good job. The product does make my skin feel smoother and brighter when applied, but I don't see actual improvements in my skin. I'm sure I can find something with a nicer price tag to helps with my pores and spots.
I really like this product, but wow what a price! It makes my skin smoother, and overall a better texture. I find my skin looks better and brighter. I think this MAY be giving me a few pimples.. but I'm not sure yet. Update: May 1/12 I find that this gave me a few pimples around my chin, which left scars that I never had had before :(. It also gave me pimples on my temples. I only use this on my cheeks now, as my cheeks are normal-dry skin. It continues to keep the skin very soft.
Treatments -Clean & Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment

Works fairly well on most spots. Some spots, it doesn't help at all in my experience. But when it does work, most pimples do shrink very fast, and definitely speeds up the healing process. I can see it might sting on sensitive skin, but I don't have a problem with it.
Nice sunscreen, I love how it moisturizes at the same time so I can skip moisturizer and just use this in the summer time. It always makes me face soooo smooth, and the effect lasts for hours. I also find this to be a nice makeup base. My mom loves this product too. - UPDATE SUMMER 2012 irritated my skin suddenly :(.
I really like this lip balm. It makes my lips look refreshed and moisturizes quite well. One of my favorite drugstore lip balms.
A very nice basic lip balm. I really like the smell of this:P. It moisturizes very well, and stays on for awhile.
I loved this, but it irritates my lips.
