Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - H2O Proof Liquid Eyeliner
AmbiguousSage 6/27/2010 3:04:00 PM
I would never use this to line my entire lash line since it has a tendency to clump lashes and is very difficult to remove. However, I absolutely love this product to do the "tail" part of my cat eye since that is where I get the most smudging. I do that little bit and then do the rest of my lash line with something else. It never smudges and stays put. I use Castor oil to remove and it works like a charm.
Well first comment I want to make is on the tint. Its not really so much a TM. I just feel like its a SS with a flesh tint so that it avoids the white cast which im certain it would have caused if it were left without coloring. Its way off my skin tone but you blend it in and it goes sheer. They also only make one color so its why I am certain they did it to avoid complaints about a whitish cast on the skin. The scent is a bit strong at first but it really does dissipate quickly. The ingredients are awesome and I havent had any breakouts from this. I check the ingredient list and there is nothing in here my skin hasn't already been exposed and tested against. I'm using this as more of a MU base. Another thing ladies, you need atleast a couple teaspoons of any spf product to get the sun protecting benefits. This is no different. Apply it as a sunscreen not a TM to get the full benefits, let it sit on skin for 5-10 minutes and then blot with tissue. So that means you should be using atleast 3-5 pumps. All in all if used properly, I feel like its a great product as long as you don't have any skin allergies to the ingredients.
Conditioner -Alberto Vo5 - Calming Chamomile Tea Nourishing Conditioner

I think I just found my HG for my CO only washing. Light scent (that my bf actually liked) and it does a great job cleansing my hair gently while not making my hair too heavy. Its a perfect balance. I <3 it!
Hello my fellow dames of MUA. I have been looking for that miracle treatment for my fine curly hair that I am desperately trying to grow out super long. I just recently tried the "Coconut Cream Relaxer" (youtube it, it seems to work super well for super curly hair) and thoguh it did leave my hair conditioned, I found the mess irritating beyond belief and I was left wondering if there was something better so that I could avoid having warm yogurt dripping down my face and back... So, I find this egg bomb deal and im like... why not? So I decided to use coconut oil instead of olive oil because I actually did not have any on hand (for the first time in my life D= ) So, I whip up a batch like so 2 egg yolk, 2 tbsp honey and only 2 tbsp coconut oil since I usually add some to my hair later on anyways. I was worried because they egg yolks were cold and coconut oil solidifies at around 70 degrees but it blended just fine and the consistency of the mix coated my hair with no drips! I left it on for 30 min. So, the verdict??? I really like it, wasked it out with an olive oil bar and now im waiting for my hair to dry to see how my curls look. Ill update asap! So far it feels super soft and my curls look like theyre clumping well. ::crosses fingers:: EDIT** Ummm... I think I just found my HG... my hair looks fabulous... Wow... seriously, thanks ladies! I put a smidge of my pomade in my hair and that was it and it looks and feels soooo soft. I really wonder if using either olive or coconut oil makes a diff.
Lip Treatments -Palmers - Cocoa Butter Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter
AmbiguousSage 10/13/2008 1:03:00 AM
Ugh after all this time looking for it, I gave up. And out of no where I found this at walgreens. I absolutely love it. The smell is not artificial at all. You can almost taste the dark chocolate, thats how rich it smells. I put it on and kissed my boyfriend and he told me he felt as though he could taste junior mints (Though it has no flavor). Its fabulous and was well worth the wait. I hope they keep the gem in stock because I know that as soon as this is half way done I'll have to buy a new one. =)
I bought this before there was even a review available for this file. So I totally bought it on a whim after reading that glass nail files were less damaging for nails. I have brittle nails that always split and break. Its absolutely infuriating at times. This file has allowed me to keep a manicure on my nails for more than two days. My nails usually split withing a few days of clipping. By the way I do not clip my nails any more. This file is so effective I can file decent length nails to short in no time at all. Its excellent quality, easy to clean, and every time I use it I feels like im treating myself to something nice. Its worth the investment and if you are worried about its safety just keep it in the sleeve it comes with when its not in use.
Sooooo glad I am one of the lucky ones. I may have felt a tingle hear or there but I can say I felt no unpleasant irritation at all. Woot! I was surprised to see that the liquid that came out of the roll on was literally a clear water like fluid. The thing I am excited about the most is being able to wear white button downs without having to worry about sweat marks and throwing out shirts that end up with deodorant build up on them after a while. I use it every other day and you do not have to worry about the effects washing off. I only just started using it, but i cannot wait till im at the point where I can use it only once a week. Awsome, and I never would have considered it if not for all you lovely ladies here at MUA. Thanks!!!!
This mask has become a staple in my routine. I have been using it just about daily for two weeks. I use the plain, whole fat yogurt on my face. I do like the cool creamy consistency of the mask. The first time I out on a bit much and it got runny and took forever to dry, but I quickly learned my lesson and found out a thin layer is enough for excellent results. So far my face is far less dry and dare I say it... less break out prone. I mean seriously, even my boyfriend told me yesterday that my face felt softer and looked clean. My only complaint about this stuff is that I'm not too fond of the scent when its all warm and drying on your face, but I am more than willing to put up with it for the excellent results. Its not a bad smell, it just smells like... warm yogurt =/. I strongly suggest you try it out and worse case scenario you wont like it... in that case make a smoothie =)
"Wow" That is literally what I said after I tried this stuff out. It was the easiest cat eye I have ever done. The brush is of surprisingly good quality and the product itself is amazing. I bought black which is a nice creamy true black. The brush lets you get really close to the lash line and the eyeliner glides on easy and dark. Sheesh, I would have saved soooo much money on eyeliners if I would have known about this stuff earlier.Its supposedly water resistant which I will put to the test. You do not need to use much product even for a heavy cat eye effect so this will probably last me many months. So glad I picked this up today, THANKS LADIES!!!
LOVE this mascara. I've been searching for a regular mascara for quite some time. I have yet to repurchase one. I will definitely repurchase this one, but judging from the size of the tube, that won't be for a while. Its a creamy, smooth consistency and gives me both great lift and separation in my lashes. One coat gets the job done and my lashes look longer, darker, thicker, curled and... HOT! I really like it and hope they make a just as good water proof version.
Treatments -Sunsilk - Beyond Brunette Colour Boost
AmbiguousSage 7/29/2007 8:15:00 PM
I started using this because I used to dye my hair all the time all the strange colors and wanted to start over and chopped it all off.... I'm talking from lower back to pixie cut. Well I really wanted to give my natural hair an oomph so I bought this thanks to the reviews I found here. So glad I did. It leaves my hair really shiny, soft and well conditioned. I find that color wise it makes my natural highlights stand out more in the light too. I'm using the regular Beyond Brunette and have been searching everywhere for the one with auburn tint since my highlights are a bit more on the reddish side so if anyone knows a store or chain that sell it I would be very thankful. Yeah so this stuff rocks!
Lipstick -New York Color - Ultra Moist Lip Wear Retro Red 308B
AmbiguousSage 7/29/2007 8:07:00 PM
OMG!!! I had to search about 8 stores before I finally found this lipstick so I made sure to buy two of them. LOVE THIS LIPSTICK! Its a perfect red. I was so sick of lipsticks that looked red looking more like a fuschia on me. If i had to compare this red to a red I have seen on someone else it would be a red that Christina Aguilara would wear. It really is a retro glam color. Only a buck at CVS and other drug stores. Nice consistency and coverage and I think it would look good on alot of skin tones. I'm a fair skinned latina with brown hair and eyes for reference purposes. Try it out and buy lots so that they may never discontinue this color!
Skincare - Face -Ponds - Purely Polished Micro-Dermabrasion Anti-Aging Kit
AmbiguousSage 4/13/2007 1:01:00 AM
I suffer from acne so I have been using harsh products for years. I'm only twenty and suffer from uneven skin tone and terrible patches of dry skin. I have used this product only four times and people are already telling me that my skin looks much better and that it looks like I have a glow. My skin texture is smoother than ever. I also havent had any breakouts. It leaves my skin super soft. It is also half the prices of other kits and comes with like four times more. It is one of the best things I have ever bought for my face. It is definitely worth a try. EDIT: Sigh, so sad that this is such a pain to find. I was purchasing it for like a few bucks for a while though and even gave a couple away to friends they were so cheap. Its depressing but I had to move on to sugar. If you can find this baby you're a lucky gal.
Skincare - Body -NADS - Hair Removal System - No-Heat Hair Removal Gel
AmbiguousSage 3/30/2007 10:52:00 PM
I hate shaving so by the time I used this my hairs were pretty long and its a good thing because they have to be in order for this stuff to work. I followed all the instructions and was definitely surprised when I started seeing blood on the strips. This stuff really catches the skin and was not "virtually painless" like the Tv ad stated. I was a bit disapointed. You have to let the hairs grow to long in order to use the product. I find myself shaving before they're long enough to wax. However it does wash off easily and if you are willing to wait to look like a wooky before you get to use it again then go for it.
Lip Gloss -Physicians Formula - Plump Potion - Nude Potion
AmbiguousSage 3/30/2007 10:44:00 PM
The smell isnt worth giving it a 1 over... I'm pregnant and get woozy over anything and the scent was NOT bad. Most plumping products have some type of spice smell to it because of the ingrdients. I noticed that nude sells out so ridiculously fast. I DID get a plumping effect from this product and was pleasantly surprised. Use this with a natural or nude lipliner and your pout really does look fuller. However do take into account that different people react differently to certain products. I've tried Lip venom and other than the shine it did nothing for me. So for half the price and double the amount it is definitely worth a try. I suggest you don't get the product outside the lip area because you want your lips to plump and intensify in color... not the area around it for it will turn pink. The clear potion is my fave because it amplfies my natural lip color.
