Stick -Black Opal - True Color Creme Stick Foundation
BabyJellyy 7/21/2012 6:14:00 PM
Pros - Buildable (light to full coverage) - Great colours - Easy to blend - Cheap - Flawless finish Cons - Awful makeup smell, that doesn't fade (sort of smells like playdough) - Oily - Transfers so easily - Breakouts (NOT for daily wear, my skin revolts after wearing this) Overall - best finish out of any foundation I currently have and the best colour match I wear a MAC NW45 (not a perfect match or even close) and I wear Beautiful Bronze in this. I purely wouldn't buy it again, because it gives me breakouts.
The huge brush is a nice novelty, was great as i could just carelessly rub it over my lashes when i was being lazy but as I dont like to spend forever on my eyelashes perfecting them unless i want to look especially nice I found it a bit annoying hard to get into the corners of my eyes with such a hefty brush great for the once brush over look though. I bought this in brown .. it's really soft i found i could pick it off my eyelashes if i couldn't be bothered to get makeup remover. If i stroked my lashes they were really soft too. However the formula stung my eyes really badly and I hated the perfumed smell so i rarely used it .. i have kept the bottle though just for that brush because it is such a novelty.. wouldn't buy again though
Moisturizers -Olay - Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid - Oil Free

Love this light and mositurising doesn't leave skin greasy.. my skin does lack a glow after i use this but then again thats because this doesnt leave a residue ... my favourite moisturiser, it lasts a long time too
I love this lipstick, it is bright and lary and definitely not for the shy. Not every one can carry off this colour it's hard on pretty much every skin tone but boyyy is it beautiful. I was looking for a katy perry waking up in vegas esque lipstick this is a bit harsher. I feel a more pink than an orange coral. It's extremely bright you will get a few stares. It moisturises amazingly almost like a balm but because of that staying power is not the best. It also magnifiys dry lips! I'm not too sure if this is just my lipstick but i feel bits on my lips sometimes i'm not too sure though. The packaging is a cute dark purple with silver and it's so cheap you can afford to buy it and not like it
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser Cream

really really dont like this in the uk its marketed as a face mask aswell although i never used it as one. Basically it's too messy this used to get all in my hair line and it'sa bluey grey annoying.. always got up my nose too oh i just hated this. Yes it does have a bit of a mint tingle. I dont feel like this even cleaned my face, when i dried my face after washing i used to wipe off residue from this too .. oh i just cant stand this face wash. Lasts forever though great if u like it, if not a complete pain
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Deep Clean Facial Cleanser

it washes your face and thats about it. Really this is just like soap in orange gel like form, it didnt do anything for my skin, it kept it clean and that stopped breakouts but really it's nothing special I had to commit hard to finishing this product, it lasts ages I couldn't wait to move onto something else!!
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Deep Action Refreshing Gel Cleanser
BabyJellyy 7/10/2009 3:06:00 PM
I love this that cool tingly feeling every one talks about is menthol so the person worrying about it don't worry it's just a bit of mint. Best cleanser I have ever owned honestly I don't think cleansers affect acne that much just depends on how well they actually clean and this does that extremely well completely strips my highly acne prone skin of everything on it, moisturising is key after this. This takes off make up extremely well too I never have to worry about left overs. Also this is so great in the morning after a hang over or waking up early boy does it freshen you up, a complete god send of a cleanser I will be using this until it's discontinued!!!
best eye liner i have ever owned but i simply cannot afford it, the brush is perfect you can make a defined thick or thin line, the colour is so dark, i didn't experience flaking at all and i remember it's staying power was great but at the end of the night or feeling lazy i could gently rub it off with my hands which helped when i forgot during the day i had it on and would rub my eyes, i'd just keep on until it all came off. bottle is very small though, last quite a while but come on. I'd buy this again when i can afford it i.e. a graduate with a career lol
Sunscreen -Garnier - Garnier Ambre Solaire Clear Protect 30
BabyJellyy 7/10/2009 1:27:00 PM
Love this.. seriously DO NOT USE ON YOUR FACE. Anyway this is great for the body, it does leave a shine on you which to me is welcome in the sun, it feels a little sticky when you put it on but settles in well. It does have a powerful smell but your not supposed to sniff the stuff, when spraying out on the beach you wont even notice it the smell goes away as soon as it settles in my past experience all clear sunscreens have a smell the one i have last year was intolerable and sticky and oily this is such an upgrade i applaud them. All in all this is a god send for people with dark skin no white marks or purpleness yayyyy!!!
I probably shouldnt have used this because i am black and the gold shows up way too much but i wanted a bronzed sun kissed look! over all i can say this would work well for some one just not me or extremely pale people my friend used it holiday and it looked like when people put fake tan on their face and get those lines cuz they did it badly... I am sure this would be a god send for some though. This also caused breakouts, and left my face oily within 30 minutes I have combo skin but it's not that bad normally it's about 2 hours before i start shining, this is not for the oily faced although the shine is to be expected with such a high level of spf
I bought this in what appeared to be a bright in your face punchy tropical pink... uhm no not quite turned out to be a dulled down raspberry/pink... yeah it's ok but I hate when bottles decieve you, plus it's not that easy to apply. Nice bottle though not so nice prices
wow at the reviews, i'm gonna totally disagree this is for the subtle ones, now i dont do an amy winehouse with eye liner but this.. no not working for me it's more of an ashy grey than black i'm really not impressed by the pigment. The brush however if you do want that delicate line cannot be beaten by any other drugstore eyeliner for that look the brush is a god send, but the formula sucks it's not punchy enough for a black. Oh and you get alot for your money!!
Lotions/ Creams -Simple - Hydrating Moisturizing Lotion
BabyJellyy 7/10/2009 1:11:00 PM
leaves my face so shiny it's actually ridiculous, my skin feels moisutirsed but you can touch my skin n slide some of the moisture off basically it's not that light, also the shinyness doesnt help when my tzone is already extremely oily... oh i just hate this moisturiser and another thing i do believe it doesnt have any spf... .. great bottle though last forever
I use this all the time why? it's simple yeah yeah yeah it won't keep oil at bay but lets face it nothing will!!!!! it's got no oil in it that I can feel but it moisturises really well, a little goes so far. It's not cheap but it's moderately priced i guess. the tube well it is a bit small and to be honest I have run out but seeing as alittle goes a long way it'll last if you don't quirt it out like a mad woman. Is it the best thing on the market probably not keep on looking one thing I DONT LIKE about this is my skin loses all radiance with it on, you know that natural brightness maybe that's supposed to stop the oil but it doesn't anyway when I want my skin to look bright as it is I use a different moisturiser
I love these, I find they set me at ease ebcause my skin is so sensitive I cannot stand when i smell that baby wipe smell on face wipes because I know theres fragrancing in it, these don't have that they are relatively cheap and do the job well. I wish they had a plastic lid though drying out as always is an issue
