Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara Waterproof
haleyhay 7/14/2009 4:48:00 PM
I don't understand why everyone likes to complain so much about this mascara, it is not "the worst mascara ever". It is actually pretty good, it does a good job at lengthening and a decent job at thickening. I personally like the waterproof much better though, I find that the regular version flakes a bit more and smudges a bit. The waterproof is truly waterproof and does not flake a bit. The more I use it the more I like it.
I like this hairspray it's as cheap as any and for me it works pretty well. It can get a bit stiff and sticky if you put to much on, a little goes a long way. But, it does brush out pretty easy and does not flake while doing so, but it still manages to keep the style in tact all day long. For the price though I don't think you can beat it. The stickiness doesn't even bother me anyway, I usually just use it for teasing for the most part.
Eyeliner -Jane - Be Pure Mineral Gel Eyeliner-Dark Brown 01

This is a really good eyeliner, but I do have to say that it is a bit drier than the black (the black is really smooth and creamy but the brown is more like the texture of clay). The brush is really good as well, overall it is a really great eyeliner, and I usually hate brown eyeliner but this one looks really nice and dark. I would buy it again.
I really do like this foundation, for me the color match is perfect. I love the packaging too, the pump is very nice, and I also really like that the pump locks so product won't randomly come out. I also really like that the cap of the product shows the color of the foundation. Rather than the cap being the same color for every foundation, it changes based on the foundation so it makes it easier to match to your skintone, especially giving you a better idea of what undertone the foundation has (warm or cool). It has a light-medium coverage, and it feels lightweight on the skin. I also have terribly dry skin and have occasional flare-ups where my whole face gets dry and peels for several days at a time, when I used this, it did not get patchy on my skin like most foundations. I have not had a problem with any breakouts from this foundation. The reason I took one lippie off is because I don't really know if it gives an airbrushed finish or poreless finish as it claims. I have really small pores so that doesn't really affect me much. I have fine lines and I would think if it could give you a poreless finish it would also fill in lines a bit but it didn't, and that's not a real big deal. What can you really expect. I also find that it's not too long lasting, it doesn't just melt off on me but I feel like it has faded a bit by the end of the day, but not too bad. It gives a dewy finish, so I doubt it would be ideal for those with oily skin, because it is really dewy. Overall I am quite pleased with this foundation, and I think I will plan on purchasing it again but who really knows I NEVER stick with the same product ever. But I do really like it, so I might just buy it again.
Moisturizers -Beauticontrol - Platinum Moisturizer

This is a pretty good moisturizer, I have really dry skin and this works pretty well especially when sealed off with BagBalm. It smells a bit odd but not bad, I like that it is not too thick either, so it seems to soak in pretty quickly too. It's a bit expensive ($20) but it works pretty well, so that's not so bad.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expert Wear - Enchanted Forest

I really like this quad it is really pretty. They are nice and shimmery but not glittery the shimmer is very fine. They have great pigmentation especially the green and the brown they are extremely pigmented. The satin and gold color are very pretty as well, and are pigmented nicely too. Overall it is a very nice eyeshadow at a good price all of the colors go well together I really like it a lot.
Skincare - Body -Hawaiian Tropic - Dark Tanning Oil
haleyhay 6/17/2009 8:44:00 PM
I have only used this once, but from what I can tell it works really well. I used this yesterday and I was only outside for 30 minutes but I can already tell that I got a nice tan from that short amount of time. It smells really good like coconut very nice and summery. The bottle is a bit messy but it is an oil so you kind of expect that. One con that I did find was that if you plan on being outside for a long period of time then you will most likely need to put on some real sunblock on top after being outside a while. It is also good to have a bit of tan built underneath before being outside a long time with this too.
Foundations -New York Color - Smooth Skin Liquid Makeup
haleyhay 6/16/2009 12:57:00 PM
This foundation really disappoints me for one reason, it broke me out. I really like the finish and coverage (which is medium-ish) and it's color matched me perfectly. But it has completely broken me out, my chin, my face is red and it itches, and my eyes are puffed up a bit and they itch. It also made my skin terribly dry for the last couple of days. But I have dry sensitive skin so someone with normal skin or oily skin, I think this would be a fine foundation. But I am dissappointed I really thought I liked it.
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula
haleyhay 6/14/2009 10:40:00 PM
I can not stand the smell of this product, I don't know about other people but I don't really want to smell like chocolate. I also don't think it did much for my skin either.
I don't understand why so many people say Pantene is damaging to your hair. I think it works just fine for me, it really does make my hair smoother with less frizz than usual. It smells so so nice, and is really cheap too. The only thing I don't like is the bottle it's a bit hard to pop open sometimes, but that's about it. I really do like it.
I really like this, a lot more than I though I would. It is much more moisturizing than I thought it was going to be. It smells very nice as well, just like Dr. Pepper, though it does not taste like it, but it's lip balm so what do you expect. It has a very nice pretty pinky-red color that it really nice, and for me it gives me a bit of lip plumping.
I love mineral oil. It makes a great eye makeup remover. I also suffer from horrible dry skin in the winter around my eyes and I use it to lock in the moisture from my moisturizer.
I have tried using these so many times (I have really bad black heads on my nose) I have never been able to get hardly any to come off on the strips. I know I am doing it right, leaving it on until it dries, but I never get anything.
Eye Shadow -Sally Girl - single eyeshadow in purple passion
haleyhay 6/13/2009 11:39:00 PM
This eyeshadow is okay, not very good color payoff at all. It looks so so pretty in the pan but it doesn't come off that pretty vibrant purple like it looks in the package. It just comes off kind of a lilac color. I am also not a huge fan of the glitter in the eyeshadow (and I like glitter more than the average person) but it is really chunky and really sparse as well. I will still use this product but I will not go and repurchase it later.
Lipstick -New York Color - Ultra Last Lip Wear in Fragile Pink 409B
haleyhay 6/9/2009 10:56:00 PM
I love this color it is so pretty, it's a nice light pink with a bit of frost but not too much. I don't really understand the "porn star" lip thing either, but maybe I'm just trashy like that and I don't see it. Either way I like it, the packaging can be a bit annoying because the top sticks up but besides that I really like the tube, it doesn't feel like it's going to fall apart if you know what I mean. It's really cheap, I think I picked it up for around $1.70.
