I guess this would be my favorite vanilla scent EVER. I think its smells more like creme brulee, I have the lotion and spray, combined, its heavenly. I purchased other Vanilla scents before like Vanilla fantasy by Parfums de Coeur but their scent has a note that makes me feel like throwing up. This one however smells so sweet, very pure sweetness :-)
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Wild Honeysuckle Body Spray
DjoannaGrace 5/1/2009 11:56:00 PM
This is the first scent I bought from BBW. I looove it! The scent is very fresh and feminine. I get compliments when I'm wearing this. People around me would recognize that it smells like our national flower, Sampaguita, but I dont care, I'm gonna buy a big bottle of this.
Foundations -Yves Saint Laurent - Matt Touch Foundation
DjoannaGrace 2/23/2009 11:46:00 PM
I thought I'm gonna like this, the texture is ok, its easy to blend but I didnt like its coverage on my face. I used mine twice i think but then got tired of it. I would prefer using my l'oreal powder foundation over this one. Had a hard time getting my color match, so I bought 2 shades to be safe. I used the them but i cant tell what shade suited me well...
Like liquidlinerlover, I had the same experience. I like the cool peppermint flavor of this balm but afterwards my lips would itch and I get these bumpy pimples (and unfortunately, it dries my lips so much and it takes days before the allergic reaction wears off) It took a while for me to realize too that this is the balm causing the bumpy itchy thing on my lips, their honey lip balm is fine, but I noticed I get a reaction when I use mentholated balms, like the TBS brand and lypsyl...
Concealers -Cover Girl - Advanced Radiance Concealer [DISCONTINUED]
DjoannaGrace 2/10/2009 12:15:00 AM
I bought this because its cheap and the packaging says it is compatible/approved by OLAY. The coverage is OK, but it doesnt last all day. I put this on first then layer it with a powder foundation. Will consume it then move on to another brand.
I have this in KOURI and NARA, between the two, i like the KOURI shade more. I apply this using an eyeshadow brush. Though pricey, it wont disappoint, although the packaging is not that nice. I love shimmery white eyeshadows! I use this every day and I have not consumed 1/4 of it, I think this would last me forever. iLOVE IT!
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadow Quad - Skinlights
DjoannaGrace 2/9/2009 11:39:00 PM
I like the colors on this skinlights palette, the lightest shade gives my eyes just the right luminous glow to give me a fresh/ wide eyed look. I gave it a 3 though because like what the others said, this e/s creases all the time. I guess i'll try to use it wd a primer on first. The colors are nice though, its good to use under your brows or the insides of your eyes as a highlighter for a clean look... :-)
Powder -L'Oreal - True Match Two Way Powder Foundation
DjoannaGrace 2/6/2009 12:58:00 AM
Its a bit pricey, yes. But for me, its worth it! Before I only used the true match powder, which is ok but not good if you have oily skin because it doesnt last long. This one has good staying power! Doesnt clog my pores, and Im glad I didnt get pimples from it so far. The packaging is great because of the large mirror like what the others said. THis is the best foundation I've tried so far.
I bought this the other day and I cant believe that I havent thought of trying it in the past. I have been using another brand but some would say the color doesnt look natural, looks harsh. Anyway, I bought the 02 shade and I am glad I did! Its darker brown shade looks so natural on me! Its long lasting too, wont wear off even if you perspire or have an oily face. And btw, its easy to apply, I use the slanted brush from my tbs mini brush kit. Anways, 1 lippie off because the brush in the kit is useless...this is my HG brow kit now. I'll be devastated if TBS will discontinue this...
Blush -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Blends Sheer Highlighting Blush
DjoannaGrace 2/6/2009 12:19:00 AM
My favorite blush! I am pertaining to the fresh 20 shade. It is long lasting and one or two sweep is enough to give me that glowing, fresh look. Compared to other blushes out there, for me this is the only one that doesnt make me look like a clown even if I apply a lot. I dont go out without it in my make-up bag!
Lip Treatments -Yves Saint Laurent - Exfoliating lip balm
DjoannaGrace 2/6/2009 12:13:00 AM
This is the first and only exfoliating lip balm I have. It works great! Though expensive, I guess the tube would last a long time. I like the scent and its effectivity in making my lips soft after using it. A sure must have. : - )
Primer/ Corrector -Yves Saint Laurent - Teint Parfait - Complexion Enhancer
DjoannaGrace 2/6/2009 12:09:00 AM
I sooo love this primer! It makes my skin glow, if you wear it alone your skin will surely glow, probably because of the micro golden particles in it..nice scent too! My HG primer!
Eye Shadow -Shiseido - Hydro-powder Eye Shadow in Rose Tulle H11
DjoannaGrace 2/5/2009 12:31:00 AM
I wasted my money on this, I didnt like the shade, its a very light translucent baby pink with micro glitters in it. I only want shimmer. It just so happened they were out of stock of the white shade that is why I bought this one, I thought the light pink is not noticeable and is almost close to white...to my disappointment the pigment cant be seen almost, the glitters would clump if you apply it thickly by mistake. I'll probably sell mine, never wore it after testing it, I'll save up for the H1 shade.
Eyeliner -The Body Shop - Sparkle Liquid Eye Liner: Starlight
DjoannaGrace 2/5/2009 12:21:00 AM
This glitter liner is just great! I noticed this because the sales associates of the body shop were wearing it and their eyelids just sparkle very beautifully! I bought it right away, never disappointed with it. Very good product, in fact all BS liquid liners like the metallic ones (golden radiance) are good too! Try it!
