Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - Eye Shadow in Purple Haze
FaerieStars 9/25/2005 3:42:00 PM
The eyeshadow looks a medium-dark purple in the pan, but on my eyes (with MAC paint in Bare Canvas as a base) looks more on the darker greyer side of purple, not as vibrant as the pan. I was hoping for the richer color. It isn't very shiny or glittery and is more towards a satin or matte finish. Perhaps used wet it may be more rich? If anyone has tried this, send me an MUA mail about it.
It's the perfect pink! So delicate and ladylike, but very sheer. It's perfect for a natural but polished look. If you are looking for a more opaque pink, this isn't it. I used up the entire bottle which I hardly ever do!
This shadow is such a pretty color. I bought it because I wanted a lighter green for spring. It's a really awesome color, but when I bought it it was broken in the pot, so be careful with them!
I am so unhappy with this mascara. It does make you look like you're wearing fake lashes, the big clumpy triangular kind. It's like I have five big lashes now. It's very very thick, and the comb is what I think makes them clump so much. There is waaaay too much stuff on the comb when you pull it out. I may just try shoving a brush wand in there!
In the pot it's like, periwinkle-blue. When you put it on, it's very soft, not chalky, and sheer sky blue with a slight shimmer. Since it is sheer, you may have to put more on to build opacity. I like it because it's sheer, and I really HATE bright blue shadows on me since I have brown eyes (I don't like the fact that they're boring brown to stand out). I think it's a good find especially for 99 cents!!
My nails feel stronger, BUT this stuff peels of like crazy in the shower and afterwards. I have this problem with a lot of nail polishes, but this one is one of the worst. It would be perfect if it stayed on! I think I remember Essie Millionails staying better. After this, I'm trying that one again.
This bronzer is awesome! It's not too dark on my PPP skin if I use a light hand. It really makes me glow. My mother put it on and she's a few shades darker and it made her glow, but not look tan. The SA who put it on me made a mess of it, but the color is perfect!! Now I won't look so out of place on vacation in FL!!
The second it gets damp with foundation, it streaks like crazy. It seems like it eats my foundation, because there is not the same amount of foundation that I put on the brush as ends up on my face. After I'm done applying, I have to run my fingers over my face to smooth out the streaks. Honestly, I'd rather just keep using my fingers than even try to buy a different brand. If anyone finds a better use for this brush, send me a message! I hate to see it go to waste.
I got this in a large one. It's pretty but a little difficult for me to carry off. I can't use too much of it. I just end up looking so 80's!
It's so pretty! Very girlie pink! I need to use it more often!
I looooove this fragrance! It just makes me happy when I put it on. It's sort of warm and has dimension to it. It's my favorite of the Dream Angels scents. I really don't like any of the other ones. This is my second bottle.
I purchased the one that's a wand with a lip gloss at one end and a roll on fragance at the other. It came with a little zippered bag. First of all, the thing is so cute and I call it my secret weapon. But the fragrance starts out smelling soooo absolutely sexy then fades to that older women perfume scent. I still use it though. I use it to tease my boyfriend. ;)
Ick! I don't like this scent! It starts to smell like lemon pledge or something. My mother likes it but I absolutely hate it. I keep trying to like it, but I can't!
Concealers -Shiseido - Optimal Cover Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

Best concealer I ever tried! I wish I had it in a pallette with all different shades since I purchased a shade that's very pinky and darker for me, but covers my undereye circles best. A darker shade covered them completely but it was too dark so I covered it with another. Yesterday I had camelia oil and sunscreen on my face and it didn't sink in yet, but I still put the concealer on and it blended perfectly! Not absolutely perfect, but the best I've ever tried. Would be better if I could afford to buy some more colors.
Lip Gloss -Lancome - Jolly Juices (Holiday Juicy Tubes Set 2003)

I love these! I got them as a present last Christmas and I wore all of them that night. The pink one is my favorite. It makes my lips super glossy and it has this great smell/taste to it, but I have no clue what it's supposed to be! The red one is too dark for me but smells nice. The blue one has a nasty taste to it (not that you would eat it, but you do taste what's on your lips). The yellow smelled great, it didn't make my lips yellow. The brownish one looked really good with the brown sparkles instead of the glitter-like ones the others have. So the only one I hated was the blue. They don't last too long, but they look soooo good when I put them on, it just makes me happy enough to leave bathroom and quit putting on more makeup!! ;)
