I love these!!! The ones I got, one is in vanilla *Some sort of vanilla I cannot remember!* and the other was White Pumpkin Vanilla. They are both heavily fragranced and are long lasting, at least the scents that I got. The scent even travels out of my unit into the hall of my apartment building! Everyone says my place smells like fresh baked cookies!! I can't wait to get more! I have recommended them to all of my friends. I love them!
I just got this mascara not too long ago. I got a sample of it, one because I needed a new mascara but I wanted to try something new and not have to shell out huge $ for it. So I got this. I was going to get Bad Gal lash but I skipped it for this. This mascara isn't that impressive. It isn't terrible by any means but it doesn't give the drama that I want. Also it smudges on me if I use it on my bottom lashes *I use NYX doll eye in long lash for that now.* It isn't terrible but it doesn't do what I want it to. It makes my lashes soft as well. I am used to mascara having a hard coating on my lashes. I actually like the hard coating lol. The mascara sort of smells like oranges to me. Which is kinda neat. I also like the fat brush. I will keep using it until it is gone but I won't repurchase.
Scrubs -Unlisted Brand - Premier Mineral Dead Sea Salt Scrub
Ayustar 8/22/2010 7:51:00 AM
I got sucked into the whole kiosk thing. I try to avoid them but it couldn't be help. It was the first time I had actually tried anything at a kiosk. This product did come with a few other things as well, I think two face washes. Both of those are pretty decent as well! Yeah, as soon as this was tested I thought it was really awesome!! It makes your skin SO smooth! It does last a while too. This stuff lasts a long time. I bought mine a long time ago and I still have a ton left. It isn't something I use a lot of though. I do use it for a few different purposes. I use it on my hands mainly. Or my face sometimes. It isn't rough or anything and it dissolves well. Sometimes I use it as a spot treatment for pimples if I get them. It does help a little with that if I am in a pinch and I don't have anything else. I actually mixed some with tooth paste and applied it to some spots and it really helped, oddly enough! I am sure this type of thing can be made at home, just like a salt scrub with some natural oils in it. Maybe not 'Dead Sea salt' but eh, I am sure there is some home made thing you can do to get the same results for a lot cheaper. I would say though I would buy this again, maybe for someone else as a nice gift.
Masks -Got 2 Be - In Your Face Pure Intent Clay Masque
Ayustar 6/15/2010 9:11:00 PM
I don't mind this mask, I have had it for a long time...BUT this might help others with oily skin if you use it in a totally different way!!! I suffer from oily skin, I have been trying different things to try to combat this. Normally, I use MoM, but I wanted to see if there was something better. I put a very, very thin layer of this stuff on my face to see if it would would work because I was thinking that kaolin clay might do the trick to keep the oilies at bay. I was going to order some kaolin powder but I thought that I would try this. I know it sorta has a color to it but if you blend it into your skin you don't see it. I just did this today, over a mattifiying moisturizer. It has worked amazing so far! I used a light dusting of Kryolan anti shine rice powder over it to set everything and wow!!! I just have to see if this will break me out!! It was worked so well! It wasn't hard to put foundation over it either. It isn't really anything special in so far as the way it is supposed to be used but a little experimentation and this might help a lot of people! As long as it doesn't break me out then it is perfect!!
This is one of my favorite glosses! My boyfriends sister loves it too so I bought her one before they got discontinued! I would describe the color as a champagne pink. To me, it isn't really pink. It is really shimmery, but in a good way. It really brings light to the lips! I usually use it if I use browns and champagne colors on my eyes. Also, this one isn't so sticky *I don't care about stickiness in a gloss.* It has a nice slick texture to it. I don't mind having to reapply it. I would buy it again but I am not a gloss junkie so I will probably have mine for a while anyways!!
Lotions/ Creams -Herbacin - Kamille + Silicone Glycerin hand cream
Ayustar 2/8/2010 1:43:00 AM
I got this in my Christmas sock this year from my boyfriends grandmother. I LOVE this stuff. I take it to work with me! I get dry spots on my hands and my cuticles get dry as well. This is really nice for that. I find that it isn't greasy and it makes my hands really silky. I even noticed that after I put it on a little later I had to go wash my hands and after I washed my hands they had never been so soft ever. I love this stuff!! I had never tried it before I had recieved it as a gift. I would would get it again and recommend it to people. Mine is scented and I sort of notice a slight cinnamon scent to it, but it is really faint. Also, chamomile as well, but it isn't heavily scented at all. This hand cream is great!
I am not much of a perfume person, but I really wanted to get this one because I wanted something dark and sophisticated. It is both of those things, unfortunately, a little too much of both of those things. At least to me. I don't hate it but it is just a bit too much. Maybe it is the patchouli *which I don't like at all* And this scent sticks with you for a long time. So, if you like the fragrance then this is a selling point. If I just spritz a little on it is very overwhelming to me. My boyfriend hates it, a lot. He actually woke up from a nap the day I got it and I had sprayed it and he was like "What the hell is that stench?! I can TASTE it! It tastes like I ate a grandmother!" So that about sums it up. For me at least. Maybe I will give it to a friend who likes that type of smell, lol. Instead, I am going to buy the Pink version of this line because it has a very fresh smell to it that I really like. I should have tested Delicious Night a little more before I bought it, but it was on sale, so no big loss really.
I just picked this up the other day because I don't have it in my collection and it is a really bright looking color. I like it but I find that, at least for me, it doesn't give me a ton of color payoff and it almost seems kinda muddy until I add Electric Eel to it. So I am going to use it when I blend blues together but other than that, I would depend on it as a main color. I seem to have issues with certain Velux Pearl shadows it seems. At least it blends well with my other blue colors. Either way, I like the color but I do have some issues with it. I don't think I would buy it again but I wanted to have it in my collection.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Ego - starflash Pink Starflash finish
Ayustar 12/15/2009 3:21:00 AM
I thought this color was cute and I didn't have anything quite like it. It has a really soft, easily blendable texture. I like to use it with browns and dark purples. It is, as described, a light pink with a lilac tone to it, it has a shimmer to it, which I find makes shadows easier to blend. Maybe I will use this shadow tomorrow, I also have 'Rated R', which is also great. If there is ever another Starflash collection I will definitely pick more of them up!
I liked this shadow as a highlight color, it does have a small amount of shimmer in it, which is fine, defintely not a sheen or anything. It goes on well and blends well. I have hit the bottom of the pan with this shadow, there isn't much left! I did however, based on a review try instead Blanc Type as a replacement for Vanilla. I like it better since it is a more flat color without any shimmer or glitter. I would get this again though, if I couldn't find Blanc Type, I like both of them pretty much equally!
I got this on a whim, I already had Hepcat, but I find that it is sheer, but good for building up color. Anyways, I find that this particular color is similar but better with its pigmentation. It is also slightly darker. I prefer it and I think it is a really pretty color. It is kinda hard to describe the color, sort of like garnet. It is easy to blend and has a really nice texture to it. I like to use it in the crease, paired with pinks, whites, etc. I would buy this color again, if I ever run out.
I actually picked this up for my boyfriend because he was getting really dry, chapped lips because of his job. I tried it out first and well...I love it so much that I have to get one for myself! I had been in search of a decent lip balm but settled on some that did an OK job. This is much better than what I have *MAC lip conditioner and Yube* and this is much cheaper and works so much better!! I am going to try out different ones to see which one I like the most!! They would make nice stocking stuffers too since everyone gets dry, chapped lips in the winter!
I bought this after the Sugar Sweet collection came out. I didn't get anything else from the collection because it seemed too pastel for my tastes. They only had a handful left so I am glad I picked this up. I have a bunch of Shade Sticks, but this one is the best in terms of application. It goes on so smooth and I find it is easy to blend out. It dries fast as well. This seems to have a creamier texture than the rest of the shade sticks so I think it is a different formula. It does look a little like the Crimson Shade Stick but it is a little more pink. There is also no glitter or frost to it. I really like using this with purples or pinks. Also, Young Punk MES applied wet over the top is really awesome, with a little bit of Stars N' Rockets, it is really amazing. I am glad I picked this up and it is going to suck when it runs out!!
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Vanilla Bean Noel Anti-bacterial Hand Lotion
Ayustar 11/16/2009 1:10:00 AM
I just picked this up when I went out Christmas shopping. The sales person showed it to me. I was thinking about it a few days prior how cool it would be to have a moisturizer that is also anti bac. and this was just what I wanted! I already love the scent of it so it didn't take any convincing on the sales persons part for me. I am glad I got it! A little gift for myself! I usually stay away from lotions that have mineral oil in them because I find that they are usually too greasy. This isn't the case with this lotion. It is really nice and it makes my hands really soft. The packaging is really nice as well. I got this one and the vanilla pear one as a gift for someone else. I don't know if there are any other scents of these, I hope so! When I run out I will get more of this for sure!
I had to have this! I don't ever wear dark lip colors, but when I saw this one I fell in love with it. I wasn't ready to buy it though, because I thought it would be too harsh like most dark lip colors are on me. I have two dark lipsticks and that is really about it. I bought this a few hours ago actually. I caved and bought it because I figured I would regret not getting it. I am actually wearing it right now. I LOVE it. It is the perfect color for me. I wanted to get it for the holidays! I figure putting it on top of Dubonnet would be amazing. It doesn't feel gritty or anything, not that I was worried about that, I am not too picky about textures I suppose. I am wearing a really neutral eye today so it was the best time to test it out to see how it looks. I am going to wear this gloss to work as well, normally I wouldn't wear something that dramatic on my lips when going to work. Eye makeup, sure, but not so much the lips. It goes on really evenly, I was worried it wouldn't. It is build-able, glossy but not over the top shiny. It looks classy even with the glitter which is more subtle than I thought, which is good. It isn't sticky at all! Anyways, I would get this again, but I doubt I will really have to. I love it very much!
