Surprised by reviews? Hell yeah! mostly because this foundation has reached HG status within a few days of regular use. No breakouts. No powder finish. Light to medium coverage. Glowy finish. Long lasting. PERFECT colour match (nw20: medium beige) And only 2.9/5?! I apply with 187 for lighter coverage and a kubuki for a heavier coverage. Use by itself on good skin days, and over foundations on less fortunate skin days. I had to rub my eyes twice to make sure that was the true rating! It's not too expensive.. Packaging is amaing, loving the lock system! And most importantly my skin looks and feels amaing when I have this on. Love this! 5 lippies from me :)
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I like this. It does a decent job of making my eyeshadow last so much longer. It doesn't make the colour any more vivid in my opinion. If you were looking for an eye base that did that also, I would recommend ArtDeco Eyeshadow base. It's an off white liquid, with a doe-foot applicator. And I have found that less is more in using this. Using too much actually creases the eyeshadow. My eye primer I use now is actually nada, nothing, zero. I power my eyelids as Kandee Johnson recommends and it works like a charm. If you must use an eyeshadow primer, I do recommend this, but for me it's not unnecessary.
I hate this. Im sorry but thats it - i hate it. The colour was orange, it was definately not transfer proof. It looked like a child had put play dough on my face.
Im not going to do a review but ill tell a story. I went out th other night after buyin false eye lashes that day and realised i had no false eyelash glue - my biggest fear. So i reached for this and i was sickened i had bought the eyelashes. The mascara did th job just as good if not better
I love using this as it makes my foundation just glide across my face heavenly but besides from this it doesn't really do much. It keeps foundation staying for a good while longer and fresher but it does not fill in pores as promised which is the main reason why i purchased this. I wont continue to buy it as its too expensiveforsomethingthat doesn't work properly.
A lot of bronzers claim that they have a matte finish but never live up to their promse when you find finely milled gold specks hidden in it. But this is completely matte. I find this too muddy to use all over my face b/c i'm quite pale but when this is used with a soft hand it looks gorgeous as a contour b/c there is no shimmer. You get a lot of product (11g) for your money and it'll last you a long, long time. Obviously, do NOT use the brush, this goes without sayin girls..they are crap.
Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

I bought this as part of a set with Touche Eclat (amazing btw!), easily distracted by th gorgeous gold tube i was instantly sold. I gave it 5 for packaging quality as it also clicks when you seal th mascara to assure its properly closed. It gives you an amazing false eyelash look, long, clean, defined and volumed lashes - perfect for a night out. I was amazed by th quality th first time i used it. Layer upon layers, no sighs of clumpin. Th wand is long and has densly packed bristles. Th smell is extremely strong so if odours aren't your thing i wouldn't advise you buy this but if they are its a pleasant perfume scent. Now - i do not pump th mascara wand into th tube as air gets trapped in it and it tends to dry out th product a lot faster. Due to th packagin i knew that my mascara was sealed properly everytime i closed th mascara so it would not dry out. After approx. a month this became flaky, dry and hard to use. Because of this i will not buy again. It is not worth th price (i think its 35, $28.50, £21.50). I found an excellent dupe for an affordable cost. Its called Voluminous Mascara Carbon Black by l'Oreal. I found this amazing and it does not dry up and its th same quailty as th Faux Cils. Watch this video i found on YouTube of th two mascaras being compared : "Mascara Challenge: YSL vs. L'oreal" by lollipop26 Hope this helped! :)
Amazing. I have really big pores around my nose that often get clogged and lead to rough skin around that area but this leaves it soft and unclogged. A gorgeous clean feeling. Dramatically Moisturising Moisturiser by Clinique also goes perfectly afterwards.
This product has a great colour but the actual gloss is quite goopy and it tends to get digusting around the lid of tube. It doesn't last long and is a rip off relly for the amount of money it costs. Lower key brands are much better (eg l'Oreal glam shine, something along the lines of that!, Non-Stop Glamour) for less money

This is amazing. I sometimes get random really dry spots, (so dry my skin would flake) this cures it the second I apply. Excellent for dry skin.
Styling Products -Umberto Giannini - Curl Friends Scrunching Jelly
CeeA 5/3/2010 8:24:00 AM
I've been buying this product since I was around 10. My natural hair is so dry, frizzy and just resembles an afro. I apply this after my shower on damp, knot-free hair. I scrunch my hair with the jelly-like substance rubbed into both hands and leave it dry naturally. I am useless at styling hair, so this is a quick, easy alternate to gorgeous beach wave curls
This product is to die for..It gives a gorgeous healthy flush to your cheeks, in the sunlight I think it's almost as if you have an illuminator on aswel. It's a coral colour (obviously!) but yet it looks so natural on the skin. Retail price is expensive but mine has lasted a few months now and after using it everyday I can only see the bottom now also as I purchased it with Powderazzi (which is a cute limited edition set which included Hoola and Dalas aswel) it was only 3.0g compared to the orginial 12.0g, so I think it's definiately worth the money! I have light-medium skin tone. Using this with no foundation makes me look a bit odd to say the least! I love mixing it with High Beam (another Benefit product), it adds to the sheen and makes my skin look more radient. I love it!
Liquid -MAC - Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation [DISCONTINUED]
CeeA 5/1/2010 2:09:00 PM
This product gives a nice dewy look. I hate orangy foundation so i asked for a natural colour and it really does look pretty. It gives a sheer coverage but a buildable medium one also. I'm not overwhelmed somehow but it does have a lot of pro's: Stays on all day, and helps blusher to stay on too. Gives an illuminating healthy glow (light-reflecting properties of micro-minerals) Contains antioxidants and vitamins C and E Hygenic pump and also a stopper (twist the cap) Includes SPF15
Okay first of all, I HATE BadGal mascara. I got it in a sale at sephora including BadGad eyeliner and a mini Benetint, it was only 20euro so I decided I'd get it and I hated it. It clumps, flakes - horrible. But everyone else loved it so I thought there was something faulty with it so I decided to re-purchase but a different colour. The blue does not brighten your eyes as it applies navy and dries black. It clumped and it got me ages trying to create a volumed effect. I was really disappointed! Cheaper versions are just as good including Maybelline Colossal which in my opinion is better! It does have cute packaging though!
Be warned - It says primer, yet it doesn't actually keep foundation on your face for longer! It brightens beautifully for a dewy look and I like wearing it without foundation for those days you couldn't be bothered with the full make up routine, yet the fact that it's supposed to be a primer turns me off. It has a strong smell but I love it, so those of you who prefer odourless products, I wouldn't recommend it to you. If you like this product but can't afford it Olay Complete Care Multi-Radiance Daily Illuminating UV creates the same effect. Not sure of the price, (mother bought it) but it is cheaper at 75ml compared to "That Gal" which is 11ml.
