I love the smell of cocoa in it. It makes my lips soft. I use this product under lipstick or after the bubblegum lip scrub and the combination of smells/flavors go good together IMO.

I love the color and the feel, I just feel that compared to the other pinks on this collection, this one is a bit less moisturizing than the rest but still better than lipstick feel. I will definitely be using this color a lot in the fall. I feel is too much for summer.

LOVE this product, the only downside is that is pricey!! I love the feel of my skin after I shower and the smell this provides.

I got this brush to create the "air brushed" effect. Compared to the regular foundation brush from Chanel I do like that the brush makes my foundation blend more and doesn't look like too much. I like this brush and I like the price. I place my liquid foundation around my face with my fingers and then blend it because of course like any other brush it can absorb the product and you end up wasting more. I have been tempted to but the Chanel one but I have a hard time deciding to spend $50+ when this one works pretty well IMO.

I like this, it compares to Bobbi Brown's gel eyeliner. Actually, it has lasted me more than Bobbi Brown who cracked and dried out after 6 months of use. Consistency is the same as BB and they both are equally lasting IMO. Great dupe.

I like this but it's not really that moisturizing. It still makes my lips dry after 4 hours of use and my lips peel during the day since its already hard. I like is for under my lipstick but not for all day moisture. Better stick with good old vaseline or aquaphor.
Hair Styling Tools -Remington - T-Studio Pearl Curling Wand
8ubble6umpink 6/28/2012 10:33:00 PM
I bought this on sale at Ulta. I have never really been a person who curls her hair because the curling iron and me don't really work well together. I decided to buy this to try it and maybe like to curl my hair. I find this tool easy to use and with the included glove is just the best way I have tried to curl my hair. By curly I mean wavy. I like how this makes your look be more like waves and not 1900s curls. I definitely would recommend it because its a good price and it does its job.
I love the color it gives although a little sheer you can build it up. My color is 'Paris" #762 and I got it at Sephora. I think it's very moisturizing but sheer, it just depends what you are looking for. For more color I would go with YSL but for summer I think I like this better.
I got this mascara to try but since I don't have an Armani counter near me I got the Eyes to Kill essentials set that also has a liner and another lengthening mascara. I like it a lot, I will use them until finish but I might not repurchase because I am still looking for the perfect mascara and this one is almost perfect but! it does smear at the end of the day so... :( not convinced. Maybe is a waterproof formulation.

I got this mascara in the Eyes to Kill essentials set. I love it but I think is the exact same thing as the original Eyes to Kill, brush looks the same and formula feels the same. My lashes look amazing after I use this, they look longer and more defined, but one thing I don't like about it is that it ends up smearing a little at the end of the day :( oh well everything can't be perfect.

They were too "moisturizing" on my oily skin, definitely not for oily skin. Thankfully I got the .99 cent travel size so I just used them for makeup corrections while doing my cat eye liners.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - Berry Smoothie
8ubble6umpink 6/2/2012 11:29:00 PM
I got 4 different shades on there lip butters and they are OK for days when you are wearing nothing but powder and lipstick. The color is OK as to be expected in a balm. They are moisturizing but it only lasts about 3 hours, then they dry up and cause my lips to peel as any other lipstick out there (except for YSL). So it's my $'s worth because I would only use these "affordable" products on "lazy days" when I'm not doing my full makeup.
Lipstick -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte Pearl Lipstick

I really liked this lipstick when I tried on at the store, but after a couple of days I wasn't really ford of it because is too "pearly" for my taste. I got #103 Sparkling Pink. I like the consistency of it and the creaminess but I want it in another color. Definitely a good product.
I absolutely love this product because you can mix both colors to get the perfect colored brow and has the wax available in such a convenient package for on the go. I got the shade brunette and is perfect for my hair/skin color. I used pencil before but was quite noticeable even though was "my color", and when I used a shadow by Bobbi Brown I felt it was too dark. I will definitely re purchase.
I got this mascara 1 week after its release. I was anxiously waiting for it because of the "promise" of thicker, longer looking lashes and false eyelash look. Well it doesn't work. It is supposed to be used as a 3 step system, it comes with a mascara tube (step 1&3) and separate smaller tube that are the fibers (step 2). Once you coat your lashes with the mascara then you coat them with the fibers, and then you do a last coat of mascara to "seal them" in place. I tried this product 3 days and the verdict is NO. The mascara it self is a replica of a cheap drugstore type of mascara, the fibers are hard to adhere to it, and once you coat the lashes for the third time, some of those fibers fall all over. It makes you feel uncomfortable throughout the day (like if you have something on your eye). I had red eyes the first day I wore this, I don't know if I was allergic to the product or just some of those fibers really got into my eye and irritated it. The second and third day I tried it I still felt like something was on my eye and by the 4th hour I had raccoon eyes, yes, it runs. So I was really devastated because this product costed me like $35 and it didn't lived up to its promise of better looking lashes, my lashes actually looked like I had just used a bad mascara that clumped all my lashes and hardened. So don't waste your money on it, if you really want that look just get some nice false eyelashes or go for another better high end mascara that will actually make your lashes look pretty.
