Powder -100 Percent Pure - HEALTHY FLAWLESS SKIN FOUNDATION POWDER SPF 20
Bisou25 8/31/2011 2:30:00 AM
I am not sure about this powder. It covers a bit, but I definitely would not use it as foundation.. unless my skin was perfect, and in that case, why in the world would I want to cover it? Anyway, this powder is pretty good at controlling oil throughout the day, and the color matches my skin pretty well (I have the White Peach). But... I recently noticed my skin reacts to products with avocado oil in them, and this powder has it. My skin has been acting up since I've been wearing this, but it could also be stress. Anyway, it is a bit expensive, so I am not sure if I will ever buy it again.
Mascara -100 Percent Pure - Fruit Pigmented ultra lengthening mascara
Bisou25 7/29/2011 7:17:00 PM
This is one of the best mascaras I have tried. The best truly natural one, actually. For me, this mascara curls, lengthens, separates and gives volume. It is a bit on the dry side, but the brush is great and I can keep layering and layering and it still looks good. Just make sure you comb your lashes, because until it dries completely, your lashes might stick together. To add to how awesome this mascara is, it smells really good. Not that anyone will ever smell your eyelashes, but I have worn a Lancome mascara that smelled so bad while I had it on, it almost gave me a headache. Anyway, I really recommend this mascara, even if the fact that it's natural doesn't matter much to you. It's awesome!
Cleansers -Acure Organics - Facial Cleanser Cleansing Gel
Bisou25 7/29/2011 7:06:00 PM
I really love this cleanser. Unlike many of the cleansers that I have tried before, it actually takes off makeup, and it does not dry out my skin at all. My skin is super sensitive, but this has not caused any problems. Actually, I feel like my blemishes are healing faster than before I started using the cleanser. And while I still do breakout (hormones, not much can stop that), my skin looks much better than before.
This lotion works great on my skin, but only during summer. It is not super hydrating, but it sinks in right away and doesn't cause any breakouts, which is really important for me, because almost everything does. It hasn't caused me any irritation and kept my skin soft and healthy.

This cream is amazing!! I have really sensitive, combination skin. I break out really easily, but since I've been using this it happens a lot less often. And it moisturizes my skin, and works great under foundation (mineral or liquid) as my skin absorbs it right away.
Mascara -Tarina Tarantino - Fleur De Lash in Black Opal

This is actually one of my favorite mascaras. I admit, it doesn't thicken or lengthen much. But it separates and curls beautifully, and with a few more coats, lashes do become thicker. Actually the reason I love this mascara is because it doesn't irritate my eyes, it actually keeps my lashes soft and healthy, and doesn't flake into my eyes, or run too easily. I try to use more natural products, and this mascara has less chemicals than most mascaras out there. I love it!
This is my favorite lash primer. Even better than Lancome, because that one actually dries out my lashes. This one separates, adds some thickness and length.
This mascara clumps on my lashes. It has a nice black color, but that's about it. Doesn't give length or much volume, just clumps..and when i try to use a clean brush to remove the clumps, it comes off.
This deodorant really works. I have no idea what scent I have..i don't love the smell, but it's not too bad either. But it keeps odor and sweat away, which is pretty amazing for a natural deodorant. It even lasted me through a night of dancing! Edit: I am getting allergic reactions to this now, after a few months of use. I don't know what it is with all the natural deodorants I try, they work in the beginning, but after a few months my skin becomes irritated and I can't use them... might work for you if you are not super sensitive, like me..:(
Eye Makeup Remover -Unlisted Brand - Gabriel Azulene Eye Makeup Remover

It's kind of pricey, but I love it. I don't use waterproof eye makeup, and it's mostly "natural" stuff, but this product works better than anything else I tried (including Clinique).
Mascara -Unlisted Brand - Couleur Caramel - Mascara
Bisou25 11/25/2009 2:13:00 AM
This mascara is amazing. I use it with the Jane Iredale primer and that helps keep my lashes curled throughout the day, as well as stop it from flaking. It does smudge a little, but only towards the end of the day. But it curls, lengthens, volumizes and separates...and the color is a very dark black. I am happy I found a natural product that works so well!
Cleansers -evanhealy - Blue Lavender Cleansing Milk

This cleanser worked miracles on my skin. Actually, everything I tried from the Blue line has calmed my skin and made it much less oily. I am getting less breakouts, less blackheads, and my skin is soft and glowing. No skincare products have done this before. The only thing I don't like about this cleanser is that it doesn't fully remove makeup; I either wipe my face with a cotton pad with water before, or use the cleanser twice. I absolutely love this brand though!
It cleans the most out of all the natural shampoos I've tried, but it irritates my scalp as well. I never get flakes, but it happened with this shampoo. And it makes my hair flatter instead of giving it volume. The only thing that is good about it is that it actually cleans as well as any "regular", chemical-full shampoo.
I really love this mascara, it's probably the best I found. I like it because it volumizes, lengthens and keeps my lashes healthy. I also like it because it doesn't have parabens ( I am trying to use skin care and cosmetics products that are more natural). Love it!!
This primer didn't work at all for me. It killed the curl, it didn't add volume or length. I just made my lashes clump together, and made my mascara come off in flakes throughout the day. It also dries white, and I could never really cover it all up with mascara. I use the Buxom mascara, which I love by itself or with the Lancome primer.
