Is it me or does this stuff smell like Froot Loops? o.O ...haha anyway, I have combination/oily skin and when I use the teeniest-tiny amount (because its so darn expensive) it makes my skin look luminous, doesn't dry it out and it feels quite smooth<3 My pores have gotten smaller as well! I tried it out b/c a friend had a sample, but after the results I got, I had to get myself the full-sized bottle. I'm use to St.Ives Apricot scrub, which doesn't have impressive results like this scrub..I'm giving this product four lippies b/c this stuff is good yes, but $37.50 for a scrub? Thats a bit steep....
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

Wow. This stuff is awesome!!! I tried it at my friends house the other night for the very first time and was not disappointed! I tested it out on my new Sugarpill Chromalust Loose Eyeshadow and it made the color so vibrant, didn't crease, ever. I was highly impressed, but to test it even further, I slept with my eye makeup on overnight to see if it would still be there the next day and sure enough, it was still looking pretty freakin good in the morning. :D Great product, I'm definitely going to buy it again and again <3
Eye Shadow -Sugarpill - Poison Plum Pressed Eyeshadow

I guess I'm the unlucky one who purchased the "bad batch" because I seriously have to layer this stuff on to get color payoff and not a very good payoff at that :/ Its very chalky, but it may be because i don't use a primer; not b/c I don't want to but b/c i don't have one heh. maybe that will make the color more vivid, like I had hoped for..I don't know. Even though its chalky and not as intense as I had hoped, I still like it regardless. Maybe I should just play with it more >.<
I bought the oil so I thought I'd give this stuff a whirl, and I'm happy I did :3 The shine is beautiful, my hair is already pretty shiny but this just makes it glimmer, haha like its name! It brings out my natural blonde highlights. My only problem is that the spray nozzle is hard to work with because if you spray too close it can look too oily so I just spray it onto my hands, rub them together and apply that way. I also let it set so it looks its best :] I'm very happy with the shine spray and I'm glad it smells just like the oil, yey! I'd repurchase again, but I think this stuff is going to last me forvever <3
I first started using Moroccanoil initially for the scent, smells realllly good and it did make my hair look softer and a bit shinier (I don't really have dull hair so i didn't see too much of a difference). I began noticing that my split ends were not as noticeable as they were before, so that was nice, but the original formula is a little heavy on my fine hair so I opted for the Moroccanoil Light Treatment instead. It smells just as good as the original and does the same thing, its just a lighter consistency. I don't think its a miracle worker like some say but it does make your hair look more together and smell really nice. I don't use it as often anymore though b/c of the silicones, but when i feel like my hair needs it, like the colder months, i use it to soften up brittle ends and protect from environmental factors. Its a decent product but the price is absurd, hence the reason why I took away a lippy. I like it but i think it may work better for those with thicker hair..I have a travel size bottle of moroccanoil light and if it runs out I'd probably repurchase again.
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - One 'n Only - Moisture Repair Conditioner

I love the results from this conditioner and the whole line as well. Left my fine, thin color processed hair softer, shinier, and even the color of my hair looks better now! The smell is delicious, I really can't get enough of it, I find it funny that some think it smells like a nursing home. What?! Haha this stuff works great, def will buy again when I run out :)
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - One 'n Only - Argan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo
BreeBee 4/8/2011 10:38:00 PM
This stuff is def moisturizing! I wanted to buy the Moroccanoil brand shampoo but after some research on the internet, decided this was a much cheaper alternative. I like that its sulfate/paraban/phosfate free; it lathers really well suprisingly! The smell is exactly like Moroccanoil, which I love, yummy nutty musky smell <3 This shampoo really made my hair feel clean and soft after using it. No shampoo I've used ever makes my hair feel soft, I was quite impressed. I think this shampoo is my HG <3 I'll keep buying it!
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo 6 Piece Brush Set
BreeBee 4/8/2011 10:27:00 PM
All these brushes are excellent quality, they dont shed, they are soft, blend beautifully, come in a convienent case and are eco-friendly. Whats not to love? They didnt cost and arm and a leg either, I'm beyond satisfied with these, awesome brushes <3
I just bought this a couple days ago and Im in LOVE with it! At first I was a little weary of it because the BE makeup artist put waayy to much on my brows, it looked horrible, haha but I just decided to clean off her error and do it myself, and sure enough, I looked normal again. My natural haircolor is golden blonde so I was a little taken back as to why she put the dark blonde/medium brown color on my brows, but im glad she did because it looks more natural than the pale/ash blonde would have. It stays on all day and looks natural, not pencil drawn. You only use a teeny-tiny bit so I'm going to have this stuff forever, haha yey
Liquid -MAC - Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation [DISCONTINUED]
BreeBee 4/8/2011 9:42:00 PM
This is my first MAC foundation and I'm pretty pleased with it. The MAC girls at the counter tried NC15 on me, since Im very fair and it made me look very dewey and it has a nice luminosity, not glittery, more glow than anything. It covers beautifully but my only complaints are that it has a slight yellow tint, which my skin does not have so it will probably look better during summer. I also dont really like how it feels on my face, kinda oily..but its not teribble, I'd purchase again, it stays on all day so thats nice. Doesn't cause me to breakout, I love that :)
I dig this stuff, it works pretty well considering I have horrid dark circles due to heredity. Its the first real expensive concealer I've purchased but I'm pretty happy with it because it covers my dark circles like a dream, any blemishes I have are concealed as well as broken capilarries on my nose. Great multi-tasker! I'd buy again if I ran out, unless I find something better..
Meh..its okay but there really isn't any wow factor from this foundation. This is my first time using BE and I really expected it to be amazintg..it wasn't. Its not shiny so thats good but it doesn't cover very well at all. I mean, I know its suppose to look natural but it just looks powdery, no bueno. And so much for only using a little, I have to use a bunch to get any coverage at all, which is slim. Pretty dissapointed, I'll be going back to liquid foundation, at least it covers. What a waste of cash.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - One n' Only - Argan Oil Treatment
BreeBee 4/7/2011 11:11:00 PM
This stuff is a perfect alternative to the brand name Moroccanoil treatment! I loved what moroccanoil does for my fine, thin and color processed hair and this does the exact same thing only its wayyy cheaper. Smells the same too, its awesome. I use a couple drops on damp hair and let my hair airdry and voila! Shiny, soft hair that smells yummy haha seriously, dont overspend on salon brand names, this stuff literally does the same exact thing as moroccanoil! In fact, I personally think this works even better. I'd also reccomend the shampoo and conditioner, they work great as well <3 I love the whole line. I have yet to try the mask yet but im sure i'll love it too! Never again will I burn a hole in my wallet when an inexpensive dupe is in reach.
