Literally my fave eyeshadow ever!!!! It's neutral and it just looks beautiful on. Surprisingly good quality and pigmentation for the cost. Love!
Foundations -New York Color - Smooth Skin Liquid Makeup
Dolce7vita 4/7/2013 4:18:00 PM
This product is super cheap and honestly fantastic for the price. It covers nicely and blends well, the ivory was actually pretty neutral and matched my skin well. The packaging leaves something to be desired as its tough to get it out of the bottle. Once you do it comes out a little easier everytime you use it. The NYC products are made by Coty, a major name in skin/fragrance products, so it's no wonder we get a great product but the surprising part is the affordability.
This is a good shampoo, and it does what it says because my hair is very shiny after using it... I just don't find the shampoo or the conditioner particularly moisturizing, and its supposed to be for "very dry" hair. I also do not care for the fragrance. Those negatives aside, it is a pretty good product and if I could get it on sale, I definitely would.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Booth's - Nighttime Dream Cream
Dolce7vita 7/24/2012 9:08:00 AM
I purchased this for very cheap on eBay. Love love love!!!! It's very moisturizing- I can see how someone would say it is greasy, but it's really not. As it settles into your skin the greasiness goes away and your skin just feels soft. It does have a strong fragrance but I find it pleasant, not totally vanillish in my opinion, a bit herby and vanilla mixed. It seems like the tub is not really full when you open it though , that was a little disappointing. You don't really need to apply a lot for it to be effective. This is not just a good but a great product for the price, even if you pay the retail amount which is around $14 I think.
Styling Products -Dove - Body & Lift Volumizing Mousse
Dolce7vita 4/20/2011 6:27:00 PM
I have fine, thin, and extremely curly hair. Weird combo! As a result, I need to be careful that the mousse I use makes my hair look full, but of course, doesn't frizz out the curl. This is an excellent product for my hair type, I really love that it doesn't weigh down the curls and make my hair stiff. It also smells great!!!
This is a very good product. I have dark circles under my eyes, and I bought the lightest shade. I think I should have gone for the shade one step up, because it had a more yellowish tint, and that will do a MUCH better job of covering any dark circles, in my experience. Anyway, this is lightweight, and does not cake or dry out the delicate area under the eyes. I actually love it- I can't believe the price is so great for the quality!!! I'm definitely going to buy again in the next color step up, love it and highly recommend!!!
Treatments (Eye) -Neutrogena - Ageless Essentials Continuous Hydration Eye Cream

I love this stuff. Great hydration! This is exactly what you need to get rid of the fine lines/creases underneath your eyes. If you use it consistently, you will see a definite change. When the little tube gets low on moisturizer, it makes it difficult to get it out. Otherwise its awesome!!!
Moisturizers -Garnier - Moisture Rescue Lightweight UV Lotion SPF 15
Dolce7vita 1/21/2011 11:20:00 AM
I have always used Olay moisturizer, this is literally the only other moisturizer I like. Excellent moisturizing if you do not have dry skin- mine runs on the combo/oily side. SPF 15 is necessary, which this moisturizer has. It does have a light fragrance which is nice, but if you're sensitive to that sort of thing, you may not like it. I don't like how its a pump bottle because there is still some moisturizer left but the pump stops working- nonetheless I think its an awesome bargain for what you are getting, I highly recommend it!!
Concealers -Almay - Bright Eyes Eye Base + Concealer
Dolce7vita 12/12/2010 1:12:00 PM
This product works really well for me. I have moderately dark circles under my eyes and that area also tends to get very dry. I use a moisturizer and then this concealer and it does an excellent job of brightening under my eyes and not creasing. I dislike the packaging but whatever, I just squeeze a bit on to my fingertips and apply that way. I have bought it a number of times and will continue to purchase!
Concealers -Maybelline - Super Stay 24 Hour Concealer
Dolce7vita 12/7/2010 5:47:00 AM
I actually started out liking this concealer. It's got good coverage and really doesn't wear off too quickly. However, I use it for under my eyes, and find that it dries out that very sensitive area. It creates heaviness and really accentuates fine lines! Ugh!! For covering up other spots its fine- but the wand can lead to spreading of bacteria so I really wouldn't want to use it for that either. I'd only buy this again out of desperation because its not terrible and its very inexpensive.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Sweet Daydream ] [DISCONTINUED]
Dolce7vita 12/27/2009 6:54:00 PM
I'm kinda surprised that I like this so much... I have worn it and thought, "Its nice..." just NICE, nothing to write about. But then I wore it one day, and kept smelling something DELICIOUS and saying to myself, "WTF is that DELICIOUS smell?" Finally I realized it was ME, and the only thing different I had on that I don't usually have on was this fragrance. Its sort of fruity and vanilla-y, really clean and quite attractive. Not overpowering, and lovely for those low-key moments. I love it!!!!
Liquid -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Makeup
Dolce7vita 9/28/2009 11:29:00 AM
Can't remember WHY I stopped using this product a while back but I have returned and am kicking myself for all of the money wasted on other products. Great price for an excellent foundation that does not make my skin break out. It provides light to medium coverage, so if you are looking for better covering up of acne this is not the product for you. However if you are like me and you experience a little break outs, this is a good choice because it controls said problems and covers up nicely.
Blush -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder Blush
Dolce7vita 7/16/2009 8:52:00 PM
I purchased this because it was on major clearance at CVS, otherwise I don't usually like this brand. This product looks good- I like the way it goes on, has a nice color (classic glow) and is not grease-inducing. However, the packaging stinks- I don't like the top for the brush so its just annoying to use. I would re-purchase it if they changed the packaging, otherwise no thanks!
I usually use Almay blemish control foundation, however I bought a new bottle and it fell on the floor and broke the next day!! I could not afford a second $12 bottle, so I bought a tube of the Pure makeup thinking it would be light and okay... I am totally shocked at how good this stuff is, because it is incredibly cheap compared to other foundations that do not work even half as well. I have the 'nude' color, and it matches my skin really well. It is not at all greasy and dries quickly, easy to apply to the skin. I furthermore suffer from acne breakouts and after more than two weeks of using this product, I have not had any problems whatsoever. This MAY become my new standby and I will definitely re-purchase!
Moisturizers -L'Oreal - Dermo Expertise Futur-e Moisturizer SPF 15 (Oil-Free)
Dolce7vita 4/10/2009 7:28:00 AM
I always thought I had oily skin. I started using this product because I had a really bad acne break out and wanted to see if this would help... I don't know if it was because of this moisturizer, but the break out went away in 2-3 days and furthermore, the stuff is making my skin soft and smooth and glowy. I reallly like it and will definitely re-purchase!
