Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Clump Crusher mascara
DonnaJazzhands 11/16/2012 11:37:00 AM
My favorite mascara in the Lashblast range, hands down! Maybe even an overall favorite mascara. Great length and volume, and no clumping at all! I really, really like this stuff.
Clumps and smudges, and doesn't even give me an exceptional amount of length or volume. It also has a very strong "inky" smell. Sorry MAC fans, this was not for me.
HG foundation and the best mineral foundation I have ever used. I don't think I'll be able to go back to anything else. I've tried L'Oreal true match minerals, Bare Minerals, Neutrogena minerals, and many more. This is THE best, and worth every penny. I buff mine into the skin with a kabuki brush. This has a medium amount of coverage, but it still looks so natural, and does not leave a powdery cakey look - which the aforementioned powders sometimes did. I am battling some pretty bad acne these days so it's nice to let my skin breathe while still getting some coverage. I just apply this over a light sunscreen. And I love that the lid closes over the sifter so you can travel with it without all of the product spilling out. Definitely repurchasing.
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Daily Replenishing Lotion

Bought this when it was on special at my local market. This lotion is so hydrating, and it absorbs quickly without being greasy! I think this is the first time I'll ever use up an entire bottle of drugstore lotion. It's unscented, but to me it sort of smells like baking flour. I love the way it almost melts into my skin, and it feels refreshing and light. Really good stuff.
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Lovesick

Love these! Not bad for a stain. I like the minty scent - it reminds me of the way floss smells. This color is great. Wish they were just a weee little bit more long-lasting, but touch ups are pretty simple. I like to go for the darker, bolder colors in these. I especially love the crayon/pen shaped tip. Much easier for me to apply since I have smaller lips. Revlon lip products never disappoint!
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream

This stuff is like a step above facial sunscreen. I really like using it before applying a little mineral powder and blush. Hasn't made me break out. Doesn't slick off my oily skin. This stuff gives the sheerest natural coverage, and I do feel good about the sunscreen factor (SPF 30). I would not recommend this BB cream for people who want a more medium/full coverage.
Pretty weak stuff. I don't want to waste this mascara so I will probably coat my lashes with this product as a base, and then go over them again with a better mascara and a stronger wand. The good thing is, it doesn't smudge, and I didn't spend a whole lot of money on it. I just wouldn't recommend this mascara to anyone, or repurchase it in the future.
Great blush! Perfect compact size. The packaging is super cute, and I found that the color I bought is a great compliment for many skin tones. I am using "PINCHED" which is peachy color with a hint of shimmer. I am certain this could be a dupe for NARS orgasm. A much better price, and an all around great find! Excited to try their other shades.
Love. LOVE this frosted pale, snowy color. The finish is absolutely gorgeous. Will be purchasing more MAC frosted colors as soon as I can.
I got this as a birchbox sample, and I liked the feel and the "no makeup" effect it gave off. BUT after I blended this BB cream in, I noticed it got quite orange on my pale skin. Maybe the sample was just the wrong shade for me? Also since I have used this, I have seen a few spots pop up on my forehead. I quite like the idea of BB creams and I really wish my skin didn't act up when I tried new things, but at least I found out before spending a lot of money on this one.
Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences Dangerously Straight Shampoo [DISCONTINUED]

This shampoo had the most amazing scent, and it made my hair really soft. I miss it! They no longer make this type.
Really impressed with the coverage as well as the lasting factor of this powder/foundation. Love that it's not a loose powder too. Much neater. I wore this all day at work and didn't need to touch up at all, but the beauty of this powder is that you can just slip it into your purse and swirl on a bit more if you want to touch up. So simple! Used with Urban Decay's "De-slick" setting spray to prime as well as set this powder, and I'm pretty happy with the result. I've gotten similar results with cheaper powders, but there's something about the formula, and the finish of this powder (less chalky) that I really like.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Eyestudio quad - Copper Chic
DonnaJazzhands 7/8/2012 9:04:00 PM
These are really nice shadows! Very shimmery. The darker golden color reminds me of MAC shadow in Woodwinked. Great palette for anyone who is looking for a striking set of colors without wanting to pay the price for MAC and other upscale brands.
My favorite gloss - practically the only one I use. Great price, and smells amazing. All you need is a could dabs from the wand because it is a bit heavy. Better for winter use or when lips are prone to drying out.
Nice lightweight makeup with good coverage.I found that my skin was too oily for this, but I really liked the finish, and the feel of it when I first applied it. I also wish the formula came in a squeeze tube, or had a pump instead of the open mouth to make it easier to take out. I used the lightest shade which I think is Breeze. I so wish that this didn't make my skin oilier but I think I might be stuck with my mineral powder makeup for now!
