Primer/ Corrector -Laura Mercier - Foundation Primer Radiance
ChelseaBiatch 4/26/2012 12:58:00 AM
I like this primer a lot! I was nervous when I saw it on my hand and how shimmery it looked, but when you put it on your face it is not nearly as bad, just gives you a slight glow. I put foundation over it so any shimmer disappears. The texture is really good though, I have very dry skin and it makes my face feel really hydrated. Foundation goes on amazingly and you can actually see the difference. Also, a little goes a long way so you only need to use a tiny bit of this product. I learned that mistake the first couple times and used way too much, lol.
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - britney spears CIRCUS FANTASY
ChelseaBiatch 4/26/2012 12:50:00 AM
I definitely like this perfume because it is a change from the sweet perfumes I usually go for. I got it as a Christmas gift from my best friend and was excited because I love everything Britney. I was happy when I smelled it and learned that it wasn't anything like her regular Fantasy perfume - which is way too sweet, even for me. It is fresh smelling, and not overly feminine, in a good way. My best friend, who is a guy, sometimes sprays himself with it before we go out - LOL!
This is my favorite body wash! I absolutely LOVE the smell.. it smells so delicious! I also love how soft it makes my skin, and I can smell it for hours on my skin after I shower! The bottle is big and lasts a really long time. I am one of those people who is constantly trying new body washes, and I always end up getting this one again!
Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15
ChelseaBiatch 4/26/2012 12:39:00 AM
Like many of you, I got this as a birthday gift from Sephora and was so excited to get it! I don't hate the lip balm, but don't love it either. It was just okay, nothing special. I would never pay the money to buy this when it is just average, and actually felt a little waxy on my lips. I kind of like the lemon-y smell though! I also got the rose tinted lip balm with it as well and like the color, it leaves a very subtle color on your lips, but still am not impressed with either.
This has been my HG mascara for years. I have tried sooo many mascaras and have a hard time finding one I like. I have extremely short, light lashes, but they are pretty thick. I wear fake lashes a lot because of it, but when I'm not I am always wearing Telescopic. This is the most lengthening mascara I have ever come across. I will say that it doesn't add too much volume, but I don't really need that. It does dry really hard especially if you are like me and use a lot of coats! I love this mascara and definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to add length to their eyelashes.
Hair Styling Tools -Conair - Infinity Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron
ChelseaBiatch 4/26/2012 12:21:00 AM
HATE this curling iron! I agree with the other reviewer who said it burns their hair. Even on the lowest heat setting, my hair is burnt & it definitely leaves a burnt smell on my hair. Also, the clamp doesn't hold my hair down enough, it's almost like it is broken. I am currently looking for a new curling iron and it reminded me to write a review on how much this one sucks! LOL :)
Not a fan of this product! It just didn't do a good job of making my hair not feel oily. Yes, there was a slight difference, but not enough. I still felt like my hair needed to be washed after I used it. I did like the smell a lot better than Suave's dry shampoo, but it didn't work nearly as well for me.
This dry shampoo definitely works. I have read some reviews about the white showing on hair, but for my light hair once I rub it in it's completely invisible. I have to agree with most people who dislike the smell. It's not the worst thing I ever smelled, but it's a strong citrus-y smell. Some people like it, I'm not a fan. I have also tried the Tresemme dry shampoo which smells great, but works horribly! I definitely think Suave should either change their scent, or make an unscented one! Also love the price!!
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Face and Eye Travel Tool Kit
ChelseaBiatch 4/25/2012 12:44:00 PM
This is a pretty good brush set. Mainly I like that they're small and fit in my purse and have (almost) everything I need in it. However, the actually brush quality isn't the best ever. I agree with some users who say that MAC brushes are better, and also that the handle length is a little weird, but they fit perfectly in the little case. For the price, I think it was $32, I'm not sure that it was really worth it. I do like the smudging brush and the eyeliner brush, but the rest are just average.
Definitely a great product for blondes! I recently decided to go platinum blonde (never again, not right for my skin tone) and of course this was my go-to shampoo! Does a great job taking away the yellow and brassiness of light blonde! I also used this when I had highlights and it refreshes them and makes them look brand new! My only complaints are the smell - it smells like a cheap old woman's perfume, and the fact that it does dry out your hair. Just be sure to use a good conditioner after. I did have a couple spots that were a silvery-gray but that was just because those spots in my hair had lightened more than the rest, but it does wash out. Remember that this won't take out ORANGE if you are trying to go light blonde!
Love 3 minute miracle! I use this ALL the time, and for like $3 you can not go wrong! It makes my hair super soft and shiny, and you don't need to use a lot when you use it. I have read a lot about how it has silicones in it, and a lot of people say that is bad for your hair but I haven't noticed any bad effects from it, only good. For the price it is great for someone on a budget!
I am on my second sun disk (Yes, I am a bronzer junkie) and love them! The first one I bought was a lighter matte shade, with no shimmer, which i LOVED, and I can not remember the name! This time I bought the shade Aruba, which is "tan with golden shimmer" and it is significantly darker than my previous one, but I still like it a lot. I was skeptical about the shimmer in it, because I don't usually like that in a bronzer, but it came out far less shimmery than I expected. They also blend well and don't look too orange. I am fair skinned and when I wear a lot of the Aruba, I do look slightly orange but that is just because I pile it on when I am going out at night. The thing I love most about the sun disk is the size! I love a huuuge bronzer with a huge mirror, and for the $22 it is a good deal. I will definitely be buying more of these in the future.
Concealers -Make Up For Ever - Full Cover Concealer
ChelseaBiatch 4/25/2012 12:00:00 PM
I love this concealer! It is definitely full coverage! I use it for dark circles under my eyes, as well as blemishes or any uneven skin tone, and it covers it all! When I first bought it my mom noticed right away how flawless my skin looked. Also, a little goes a long way so my tube should last a very long time. My only complaint, which is my own fault, is that I ordered it online and bought the lightest color and now I wish I would have gotten a medium shade instead. So I would recommend going into Sephora and trying it out to pick the right shade for you.
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
ChelseaBiatch 4/25/2012 11:54:00 AM
I like the setting spray! It does what it says and definitely helps my makeup stay. I use it especially when I am going out at night or know I have a long day & won't have time to touch up my make-up. The only time I found it didn't work as well was when I went to a Britney Spears concert last August, but it was RIDICULOUSLY hot that day and I was sweating like crazy! (Gross..haha) But I wouldn't have expected my foundation to last through that! It is a little pricey, but I have had my bottle (I have the big bottle which I think was $35?) for 4 months and still have about half left. I definitely will be buying this again!
Eye Shadow -Coastal Scents - 88 color matte palette
ChelseaBiatch 4/25/2012 11:42:00 AM
This was my first eyeshadow palette I bought. For the price, it is definitely worth it. It is not bad, but you definitely need an eyeshadow primer before using these colors. Some are a lot more pigmented than others. I ran out of the neutral colors pretty quickly and was left with a ton of bright colors. I would recommend this palette for someone who uses colors a lot! I found that the white & off-white colors were kind of chalky and not nearly as bright as I was hoping for, but the bright colors showed up better. Again, for the price I think that this is a good deal and worth it for someone who is on a budget or maybe a beginner.
