Foundations -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15
CuteSmile 11/10/2011 3:40:00 PM
Totally love this foundation! I've been wanting to go a little more natural as far as my makeup/skincare products go. So I deceided to give it this foundation a try when I found out what Maureen "mission" was for makeup. I was using Everyday Minerals, which I do still like a little but I didn't like how it made my skin look on its own. I still use it over Tartes tinted moisturizer on the weekend. I use this foundation for during the week, dates with my husband & special events. Love it
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - EXTRA VIRGIN Coconut Oil (All brands)

I'm on my 2nd jar of coconut oil and I love it. I have curly hair and of course tends to be dryer at the ends, so twice a week I put some on my hair and message it into my scaple and leave it in for 15 min's (which takes about 5-10 just to make sure its somewhat evenly coated) and wash my hair. Sometimes I even apply it on the day I cleans and leave it in for about 3-6 hrs and just rinse it out. Works great for me. I'm not sure what kind of hair the review below has, but she must be doing to quickly.
I've only used this 2 times since I've had (about 2weeks) and I like it is gentle and seems to do a good job, but I do put it on twice and that really seems to work for me. Would buy again.
I love this primer! Before I'd curl my eyelashes and as soon as I'd apply my mascara they'd lose the curl, but with this I actually don't have curl them when I use this. Love it and will be buying again and again!
Makeup Brushes -Garden Botanika - Eye Definer Brush

I haven't really used this brush much but from the times that I've used it it works perfectly. I would buy this again.
I like that this concealer has 4 slightly different shades that I can mix and match! It also stays put all day which is of course a huge bonus! Will be buying again when the need arises. Update 7.8.11 Just don't like anymore and I don't really remember why, its been a while since I've stopped using it.
I'm not that familiar many eyeshadow primers, I've only used this one and one by bare minerals, which is really good and only use that one for special occasions. GB eyeshadow primer I use for everyday and it keeps up pretty well! Will be buying again! Update 7.8.11 I've moved on from this stuff. I paid closer attention to my shadow and creased majorly.
I really like GB's cream gel liner! I think this liner was very easy to apply and stayed all my upper eyelids all day, may have faded a tad bit but nevertheless stayed! I think they might also be reformulating this as well, because I got them (plum & earth) for $4.50 each. Will once again be buying his when my current stock gets low! Highly recommend!
I got about 8 of these eyeshadows on a clearance sale recently. So far so good i really like all of the colors I got with the exception of one called coffee it's a lil to dark for me, but I'll use it as an eyeliner. I think these eyeshadows add just the right amount of color for my liking. I was told that they are reformulating the eyeshadows and I'll be purchasing them as well when they come out around the March or April! Highly recommend!
Powder -Garden Botanika - She's a Natural Mineral Foundation

Update 3.30.11: i just started noticing that my pores are clogged. I had heard bismuth oxychoried (not sure hiw to spell 2nd word) which happens to be in this can give some users an itching feeling and some say clogged pores so I've started using Everday Minerals and my face has cleared up. Won't be buying thus again! I've been using this for about 5-6 months now and I really like it! I like that its a pressed powder rather than loose powder. It seems to last a good amount of time (I normally don't reapply throughout the day) I had purchased the trial kit directly from GB and eventually purchased the full size and I've been using that give or take 4 months and I'm just now seeing the bottom. It stays put all day and gives a natural look and I like that it's mosty natural ingredients. Will be purchasing again soon!! Highly recommend!
I liked this mascara. I normally have a problem with keeping my eyelashes curled, but I don't have that problem with this mascara. Overall pretty good.
Fragrances -Garden Botanika - Pumpkin Ginger Fragrance Therapy
CuteSmile 9/21/2010 6:53:00 PM
I got this (in the shower gel form) because i love the scent of pumpkin and thought I might like this, also it was on clearance $4.50. I like it a little but it does the smell the way I expected. I thought it would smell a little more "pumpkiny" but smells more like the ginger to me. Good thing i didn't buy it at full price, I would have been very disappointed and won't be buying this again.
I really like this eyeshadow kit! It adheres pretty good to my eyelid's. I love the colors and you can play around with them, at least I think you can. I would recommend this to someone that wants subtle pretty eyes that can also be played up.
I also got this in Sweet Dusk, I like it a lot. Seems to stay quite a while on my eyes. And looks great with my dark brown eyes.
