Treatments (Eye) -Kiehls - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
B3AUTyxEX0TiC 7/15/2012 10:16:00 AM
I don't use eye creams very often but when stress overwhelms you and you don't moisturize your face, you know it's time to. My eye area has been dried the most. I thought the look of this cream was disgusting the first few times I've used it and I hated it the first few times but overall, I think it's a nice eye cream. Not worth $28, though. When you apply this, your hands need to be VERY dry. if you just washed your hands, you will feel it and it feels gross. Also, close your eyes tightly when applying because if it's opened, even just a little, it will burn your eyes - especially if you have contact lenses on. I do like the moisturizing feeling of this eye cream, and it's nice but there are better creams out there
Piree was the first color I picked out of the tester tubes and voila, it is now my HG. I love it! The color absolutely matches with my skin tone and looks quite natural for a creamy lipgloss. Very long lasting as well. The only thing I dont like about it is the very small, point brush which I have to dip in the gloss many times to apply a few more times.
I really love the packaging of this but because I only bought it for the matte coral blush, I find no need for the shimmery red blush and the bronzer (which I never use), therefore I feel like it's a waste of $38. The coral color is really pretty but the other 2 are horrible. The shimmery one doesn't even go with the matte blush so I don't know why they would pair it together in the first place.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Naturals Cleanser + Makeup Remover

I fell in love with the scent when I first bought it but it's a great makeup remover. I wear a lot of face makeup (particularly foundation) and it's really strong when it comes to removing makeup but make sure you lather it all over your face because it's a bit hard to wash off. I've been left with makeup remover below my chin and never noticed. Overall, a really nice wash..I like the pump and how gentle it is.
Hair Removal -Nair - 3 in 1 Hair Removal Lotion (Gentle Formula)
B3AUTyxEX0TiC 9/24/2011 2:35:00 PM
I've been using this for 6 years now and it's the only product I'll use to remove my unwanted hair! The smell is like rotten eggs-horrible but that goes for every brand's hair removal cream. If you have any cuts or anything on your skin, try not to use it, even if you don't apply any on it or near it because if it touches your infected area, it'll burn up even more. I prefer these over shavers because you don't have to cut yourself and you can wipe off the lotion in less than 10 minutes!
I really, really tried to like this blush but couldn't. I have medium tone skin and the baby pink was too light for me and the red was too red for me. Even when they were mixed, they made my cheeks super rosy. I bought this because of the design and because it was such a good deal, I have to be honest. Doesn't stay on for too long and I actually don't mind the shimmer.
Deodorants -Dove - Ultimate Clear Cool Essentials Anti-perspirant Deodorant
B3AUTyxEX0TiC 7/13/2011 12:46:00 AM
I've been using this deodorant for many years now and of all the deodorants I've used, nothing beats this. First of all, I just want to point out that I do shave my underarms once every 2-3 days. My hair grows back fast and I do get a lot of bumps and burns here and there. The scents are great but I prefer not to have scent. Does not stain on clothes, no white marks and best of all, so easy to wash off when showering. This deodorant is a really good value. The scents smell really good and they're the kind of scents that you can smell over again without getting a headache.
I've probably waited the longest to get my hands on this. It's been a long time. I fell in love with the Tokidoki for Smashbox line the moment I saw it, but never seemed to get my hands on it. I've finally got Drammatica from a lovely swapper and it's nothing like I've expected. Really nice coral color, love it. But I HATE the lipstick-like smell. This is why I barely use lipsticks, because most of them have that typical lipstick smell, which I hate. And another thing, it doesn't last very long. I expected more since it's Smashbox and their lipglosses have never let me down, except this one and the lippies from the Wicked Lovely collection.
Eyeshadow primers were once my holy grail, and now they have turned against me. Instead, paints have been my BFF, with some flaws of course. These are amazing. I have two, one is called Untitled and the other, Bare Canvas. I usually use Untitled because there's less shimmer in it. I LOVE it. It's very close to my skin tone (NC42), but the problem is, it almost matches my skin, I can't see what I didn't fill my eyeshadows over with, making my eyes look glowy with all the white outlines. It's a mess, I know. But I still love it. Very pigmented, you can just use a small dab for one eye, and best of all, doesn't crease! As you can tell, I love these more than those eyeshadow primers.
I don't know about you, but I don't like this primer. I don't like the texture of it, I don't like how it makes me feel like I have a lot of makeup on, and I don't like how it makes my foundation look dull. I call this the 'insecure primer', the primer that makes you feel ugly. I don't like the slimy feeling when applying, it feels like I'm actually putting a mask on or something. Overall, not a great primer, and I don't recommend it at all.
This is a really gorgeous color, but I suggest sticking it to the cheeks. It looks super tacky on the eyes and I'm not sure if this has enough texture for lips. It doesn't go on the lips very well. But I love this. I bring use this for the day, and bring it with me during long school days just because it's so convenient. And I probably only use it once for the day (I use powder blush in the morning) because it's long-lasting. Great color, gives a great complexion as well, I just don't think it's worth $39.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expertwear eye shadow in Creme de Cocoa
B3AUTyxEX0TiC 6/4/2011 6:19:00 PM
When I saw this on sale at Rite Aid for $2.50-$3, why not? I needed a matte neutral color anyway. My, oh my, I have looked down on drugstore makeup for the past few years, and this one eyeshadow has really changed my perspective. Very pigmented, and very gorgeous color! This is probably perfect for any occasion.
I've been using this foundation for more than a year now, hoping mineral foundation would be easier on my skin -- wrong! It might just be me, but I always get that cakey face look after I apply it, maybe because my blemishes are too dark. But this is NOT good foundation for the summer. It will come off easily if you sweat in 90 degree weather and you will look miserable. As for the winter, I do recommend it, but I think I'll try other foundations.
Treatments -Biore - Ultra Deep Cleansing pore strips
B3AUTyxEX0TiC 5/31/2011 2:40:00 AM
I knew the regular pore strips wouldn't work effectively for me since I do have a lot of pores, so I thought Ultra Deep would work -- wrong! I haven't picked at my pores for a month and there were just so many, so I decided to use them since they were 'ready', only got out 2-3 out of hundreds. Very disappointing. I wait for 15 minutes, the least, and the strips are always so dried out and leaves an itchy, tangling feeling. Very uncomfortable. I think just the face ones probably work slightly better than the nose strips because the nose strips are not very well portioned to my nose.
Blush -MAC - Wonder Woman blush in Mighty Aphrodite

I'm fortunate to be one of those people who got this in the pre-sale. VERY gorgeous blush. I really loved the coral side of the blush, but it's much more beautiful with the pink side blended.
