My 2013 New Year's resolution was to try something different every month. I am very, very boring in terms of style. So I purchased Ruby-Woo... hoping to add some pop to my style. And it worked. The color alone is too bright for my olive-yellow (part hispanic, part asian) skin tone. So I top it with Mac Lip MIx in Crimson. Not only does it make it the perfect red for me, but it makes it stay on NO MATTER WHAT. Perfect combination for me. I also use the Mac Lip Liner in Cherry. The only downside is that it can be a little drying, but I just slap my chapstick (cherry Carmex) on top once the Lip Mix is dry and it is good to go.
This is the perfect 'nude' on me. It's not sheer... it's not frosty... it's shiny... and the color is the perfect innocent pink. A staple in my make-up bag.
Skincare - Body -Victoria's Secret - Moonlight Dream Body Butter

I LOVE this scent... however, it only smells fragrant for less than 5 minutes! I took it all back, just kept the body wash, which at least smells nice in the shower. But sadly, I won't be buying this again.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Vanilla Coconut Passion

My favorite of the Vicky's scents. I wish they would offer more in theline (scrub, body butter, etc). They do have the EDT, which is a plus. Lasting power for me is great with this one.
Lotions/ Creams -Victoria's Secret - Mango Temptation

I LOVE this scent on me... I love this entire line. However, I wish it would last longer! I go through it quite frequently because I have to spray/lotion up so often. If the lasting power was better, it would get 5 lippies.
This scent is amazing.. my God, it's delicious. However, it dosen't last. At all. So back it goes. Even the lotion. So yummy! But lasts for maybe, 20 minutes. :(
True Escape is my FAVORITE VS scent. I wish they made the EDT spray, because the staying power does suck :( However, the smell is INCREDIBLE. I love Jasmine & florals, and it just smells so yummy. The scent reminds me of the old formula scent of Herbal Essences (when it first came out). Just sort of juicy and fresh. This is the only fragrance that I have the scrub, body wash, body butter, body lotion and splash. I will continue to buy this scent as long as they carry it.
Lotions/ Creams -Victoria's Secret - Amber Romance Body Lotion

Amber Romance has been around a long time, but I barely discovered it. It's heavenly! I don't really feel the lotion moisturizes very much, but the smell is amazing. My new fave!
Love Spell is one of my favorite scents. The peach is the strongest note I smell on me, and men everyone go ga-ga for it. definitley will buy for years to come.
Blush -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Blush in Blushing Glow

I used to use Jane Blushin Blossom blush... which was cheap but the color was perfect... but then I realized I was having a sudden problem with the talc in it. So I stopped, and switched to Bare Minerals. Although I liked the color, (not as much as the Blushing Blossom, butthe Golden Gate seemed to fit well) I WAS NOT ok with paying $18 for a blush. I use the rest of the line, which seems resonably priced, but the blush... hmmm.. not so much. One day I was bored and searching he web and decided since I like the Physicians Formula Talc-Free Pressed Powder that I would try the Talc-Free Mineral Blush. This color is PERFECT! Very close to the Blushing Blossom from Jane. Not streaky, and not hard to apply at all, and it buildbable which I love.
Perfect color!!! Never streaky.... lasts for quite sometime without me ever having to re-apply.
My beauty staple. Can't live without this in Medium Beige. I usually wear it light, but I like that I can build the coverage flawlessly if I desire.
Pressed Powders -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Mineral Face Powder
Devildog4025 8/28/2011 1:11:00 AM
I am a very devoted mineral make-up girl. I used to wear MAC for years, then one day I tried the mineral and never looked back. I am happy that I am not allergic to it. I use Bare Minerals faitfully, but they don't make a travel pressed powder. I use the Mineral Veil, but it's a pain to take it with me in my make-up bag. SO I decied to try this, since the ingredients were similar. And I love it! I use the translucent, and I only need to apply it twice a day, at most. I don't use the brush that comes with it.. I use a regular compact round and I find that it works great. The only downside is that the compact breaks VERY fast, sometimes for no reason at all, which is the only complaint I have about the product.
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control
Devildog4025 8/1/2011 12:27:00 AM
I don't use this on my face and I never have... I use it on my body. It makes my body very soft... helps with razor burns and ingrown hairs. I use it on my underarms and bikini area daily, and I never get razor burn or ingrown hairs.
This is my favorite eyelash curler ever. I have small, slanted almond eyes and this si the only curler that works for me.
