Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Volume Waterproof
Elemennopi 12/13/2012 7:52:00 PM
I HAVE to use waterproof makeup or else it won't stay on. I apply this in a straight motion, no zig zagging since I like my lashes separated. Cons: makes lashes stick together a little bit but can easily be separated with a spoolie Large brush makes a mess on eyelid & difficult to get in inner corners (putting a business card behind the lashes keeps product from getting all over lid though) Not very lengthening (not that i expected any, this is a volumizing mascara!) bulky packaging product was VERY wet when i bought a new tube, i left the top unscrewed so now it is fine. need a good makeup remover to remove it (I like Vichy purete thermale waterproof eye makeup remover for sensitive eyes, it claims to protect lashes too. it has oil so i make sure to only put it on the eye area & it doesn't break me out or anything) Pros: lasts long great price considering the quality. sometimes on sale for $5! very volumizing very black no clumps, ever very waterproof. holds up well through rain & tears. wont hold curl after being very wet though. stays on all day.
This review is for the skin smoothing body lotion 10% glycolic acid. I use it on my cleansed face at night. This product worked amazing on my large but shallow acne scars. Took 2-3 weeks to notice results but it's worth it, the biggest ones are now less than half the size they were and the smaller scars have become hard to find! No effect on my deep acne scars (nothing does though). I was given 10ml sample of this product and ive used it at least 30 times on my forehead & t-zone, a little goes a LONG way therefore I think the price is worth it since it comes in a 200ml pump bottle which is more product than many shampoos! This product does the exact same things for me as Avene Triacneal except that it doesn't stain my pillow yellow!
My skin: dry, lots of acne scars & big pores. This makes my skin flawless its amazing. With this on I was walking in the pouring rain for an hour with rain running down my face and when I patted my face dry & went to go fix my makeup, it hadn't come off at all! I put this on at 7am & don't need touchups at all, once I fell asleep and it still looked perfect in the morning! The only con is too much product always comes out and it looks cakey on my under eye area.
Polishes -Unlisted Brand - Jessica - Custom Nail Colour

reviewing Midnight Moonlight. the color is a beautiful deep blue & not navy at all. then in the sun there's pretty sparkles. gorgeous! only needs 1 coat but i do 2 & a topcoat. this polish lasts DAYS. everything, even OPI and China Glaze chip after only a day on me but not this. I wish i could find more Jessica polishes so i can get more colors since i got it a winners :(
I don't use this for eye circles. A cosmetician recommended this to me for extremely red pimples because she said coverups meant for eyes have much better coverage. She was right! It covers pimples & redness very well & stays on all day. Took a lippie off because it's expensive ($13 and you dont get much, but you dont need much) a bit transferable and I don't like the white swirl. It is WHITE therefore making my pimples more prominent. such a stupid idea. But I will avoid the white & repurchase.
Masks -Clean & Clear - Blackhead Eraser Cleansing Mask

The ONLY reason I use this is because it makes my huge pores & acne scars barely visible. I use it once a week because I had a bad experience with a salicylic acid body wash (made my bacne so much worse i went to the doctor for prescriptions) so im not taking any risks. No effect whatsoever on blackheads other than making them smaller. Doesn't do anything else for me.
I had moderately severe acne. Blackheads all over my nose, chin and between my eyebrows. Went through 2 boxes. The best way to use these was to unwrap it and put it on the counter, then shower and jump out quick and immediately put it on. But it still didnt get them all and they always came back.I had HUGE blackheads because i used to squeeze them. I dont know how these couldn't work on such huge pores with goop practically poking out, but they just didnt get them all. maybe my blackheads were too deep. I eventually just went to the doctor and got prescriptions. worked better than anything else. even proactiv. Now i have almost clear skin :)

First off, I have VERY oily eyelids. PROS -great color -packaging is awesome, easy to carry around -lots of product (twists up) -lasts all day but ONLY with UDPP -good as a base or by itself -blendable -nice shimmer -its creamy so you only have to swipe once -takes way less time to put on than eyeshadow CONS -expensive -creases and is a total mess without primer -not waterproof if you touch it I love this. Been using it for years. Will always repurchase.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Lineur Intense liquid liner - brush tip

I have oily eyes, and this stayed on very well, except right in the outer corner of my eyes, making my wings have missing ends and looking very weird. Very disappointed because I could make a very thin line or a thick line and it was easy to use once I got used to the applicator. It comes off very easily if you touch it or rub it.
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Feria Color Moisturizing Treatment.

Paid $12. Even though the price is a bit high for the amount you get, it's totally worth it! If you like the conditioners that come in hair dye boxes, you'll love this! Before using this, my hair was damaged, dry and dull from bleaching & dying and I had split ends like no tomorrow. Now it looks and feels awesome! I leave it on 2-5 minutes before washing out. I have human hair extensions that I fried a bit from straightening. The ends were looking really gross and I was going to cut them, but first I tried leaving this conditioner on them for a few minutes. It made them soft and shiny again :)
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure in Hidden Treasure

I couldn't find this in stores, so I got in on craigslist for $8 Kinda more than I like to pay for nail polish but Its so worth it because I love this polish! I like it best over black, it makes a red/orange/yellow/bit of green fire and over Opening Night by OPI (a dark blue) it makes a gorgeous rainbow!
My lashes point down and this doesn't give me enough curl sadly, although its great and easy to use for my bottom lashes. I love how it fits in my pocket and makeup bag, unlike my bulky clamp curler and it doesn't ever pull out my lashes. It comes with 1 extra pad that is tucked into the bottom of the curler. This may work better for people with a natural curl already or for people who don't like their lashes sticking straight up. Won't repurchase.
