I got this for free as the Sephora birthday gift. This highlighter is okay because I have to use a lot for it to even show up on my skin. It doesn't blend easily and is overpriced. I wouldn't buy it.
I got this mascara and the highlighter as the free birthday gift from Sephora. I like the brush because it is not like the giant brushes out there. I really hate the big brushes even though majority of the folks disagree. The formula is nice because it is doesn't sting or irritate my eyes (I wear contacts). My lashes are already long so I cannot comment on the lengthening effect, but it definitely gives a good amount of volume. It does take a minute or so for it to dry. Also, application is the key to this mascara so I would follow the instructions on the packaging. Although this is a great mascara, I love my l'oreal mascara and it is cheap so I don't feel the need to purchase a higher end mascara.
Gels/Soaps -Shea Moisture - Organic African Black Soap Shea Butter Wash
Bsheth86 4/23/2013 12:30:00 PM
This is a body wash and not a facial cleanser. I had been suffering from acne in the back and chest area since December. I am not someone, who is prone to breakouts on my body. It just kept getting worse and I even tried Murad's body wash, which is overpriced and didn't do anything to clear it up. It has been a nightmare trying to deal with this, until I came across this body wash in Target. This has saved my skin! When I first began using this wash I felt as though it was making my acne worse, but I continued using it. The breakouts on my chest are gone and the acne on my back have been reduced (not completely gone yet). I use this body wash only in the areas where I need it because I do suffer from eczema and it can be really drying. I make sure I use a good moisturizer on my skin since my skin suffers from chronic dry skin. This body wash contains jojoba beads and they are not scratchy like some of the other body washes. I recommend shaking the bottle everytime you use it because the beads tend to get stuck towards the cap. I do use this on my face sometimes when I am experiencing a breakout, but I use a tiny amount and only concentrate on specific areas. I would not recommend using this as a primary cleanser for your face. I believe there is a soap bar specifically made to be used on your face from this line. The only con I have against this product is the smell. I cannot stand the smell, but it works and that is all that matters.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Perversion

I really want to love this pencil because the color is amazing, but this smudges. After a few hours, the color travels to the bottom of my eyes and I have tried everything to avoid this. I really do not want racoon eyes.
Non greasy and you don't need to apply a lot for the cream to moisturize. I really like the botanical smell and I have noticed my skin still feels hydrated even after washing my hands. It is pricey.
I am a brunette and all I have to do is rub my hair so there isn't any white residue. Works really well and gives my hair a little bit of volume as well. Buying at TJ Maxx is cheaper than buying it at Ulta. I will definitely repurchase, I wished they sold this in a larger size.
Shampoo -TRESemme - Naturals Nourishing Moisture Shampoo
Bsheth86 10/21/2012 2:47:00 PM
I absolutely hate the smell but the shampoo works well. The smell is fruity but I just can't stand it. Even though I have fine and oily hair, I went with this over the Volumizing shampoo because all the reviews suggested that the shampoo can be drying. My hair still gets oily but it is not that bad the next day.
Conditioner -TRESemme - Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner
Bsheth86 10/21/2012 2:44:00 PM
I really like this conditioner for my fine hair because it doesn't weigh it down. The texture is creamy, yet light. The price is also not bad and you get a good amount of product. Overall, I am happy with this conditioner.
This is an okay product. I don't think it clarifies that well. For the price you pay, I think there are better products out there. My hair also falls out a lot with this shampoo so I will not be buying it again.
Shampoo -Burt's Bees - Very Volumizing Pomegranate & Soy Shampoo
Bsheth86 5/8/2012 1:19:00 PM
I bought the new bottle and it doesn't have soy. Plain and simple, this shampoo sucks. It makes my scalp oily and my ends dry. Even when my hair is wet, I can feel the build up on my scalp. Oh and worst of all, it makes my scalp itchy with zero volume. For a drugstore brand, this product is expensive and I would skip it next time.
Packaging is pretty basic and I bought the smallest size because the perfume is expensive. The scent is floral and feminine. I like the fact that it lasts longer than a lot of other perfumes (at least for me) .
Absolutely love this color and looks good on a variety of skin tones.
This is a really good moisturizer, but only in the summer if you have combination skin. This really dried out my cheeks and will not work for the winter. But I will definitely use it in the summer, when my skin tends to be more on the oily side. The spf is is low but it feels smooth and doesn't give me the ghostly white complexion. Best part: unlike other sunscreens, I do not break out and it doesn't make my face greasy.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Coconut Shimmer Body Butter
Bsheth86 8/25/2011 4:19:00 PM
disgusting! I absolutely hate this body butter. I am glad I got it for free because I would not pay for this. When they say shimmer, they mean shimmer. My hands were literally glowing from all the shimmer. Worst part: it gets all over your clothes and even got on my cellphone. Smell is really strong. When you touch your skin, the shimmer comes off so this is not good at all if you have sensitive skin, wear contacts etc etc. I am going to be trashing this.
Liquid -Chanel - Mat Lumiere Long Lasting Luminous Matte Fluid Makeup SPF 15
Bsheth86 8/21/2011 4:26:00 AM
I had really high hopes for this foundation but I find that it doesn't control my oilyness. In fact my skin is even more oily after using this foundation. The color that I got looks really orange in the container but once I apply it ..I don't see the orange tinge. The shade blends in well. Now if only I could have this foundation stay in place. I use this foundation with my amazing cosmetics primer and after a few hours I am really oily. The coverage is medium. Overall, I am not really impressed so I will not buy it again.
