Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - Hot Tools - Galaxy Turbo Ionic Salon Dryer
Happicuupcake 3/26/2013 12:09:00 AM
I used to think dryers were useless before this! The Galaxy Turbo Ionic Salon Dryer does as it says: reduces frizz, smooths hair and has less drying time. It's also pretty light, compared to most dryers. The packaging comes with the dryer, a diffuser and a concentrator. As a first time user of a concentrator, it was a little hard to put on. After a few tries, you get used to it. This dryer is amazing! I dried my long hair in about 10-15 mins. I'm hoping with more practice, I'll be styling my hair exactly as I want!
I don't know what it is, but the more expensive products just aren't working for me =/ The brush is great! No clumps! The bad thing that I mentioned about the more expensive mascaras is that.......IT UNCURLS MY LASHES!! =/ Is it just me?
Great liquid eyeliner! It was a little harder for me to apply because it has a stiff brush. I'm more used to the soft, felt tip brush that the Maybelline Stiletto has. The eyeliner stays on all day and doesn't smudge.
I wanted to try these because my brows have no shape. I put it over my brow, but my brow and stencil didn't line up right! Sometimes I wish I had thicker brows that spread out, then again I don't have to clean them up that often! I give it 2 lippies because it's not a bad product, just better for people with extended, full brows.
Makeup Brushes -Essence of Beauty - Conceal Brush Duo (Eyes)

I went to CVS to buy EOB's concealer brush, but they only had the ones for the eyes. I used them and they were OK for a first try. I went to go wash them and I heard a clicking noise. I lightly bent the hair up and down to see if it was loose, then the head of the brush just came off the handle! I'm going to see if I can glue them back together, but next time, I'm not going for this mini concealer brush!
I put this on after washing my face because it tends to dry up when I wash it. I got this as a sample and I don't see anything great to buy it. I'm not crazy for moisturizers, but I definitely don't have anything bad to say about it. It's average.
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - NatureLuxe Lip Balm in Anemone

I like that this is a tinted balm. I didn't think much color would show up, so I tried Anemone. One swipe gives a good shine, but you have to layer it a couple of times to get the color to show. I'm giving it 4 lippies because I didn't like that when you're putting on the product, it doesn't stay in place. Instead, it wiggles around inside, waiting to break. I accidentally left it in my coat, when I put it in the washer, so I guess I'll never find out.
The wand is curved, like the shape of your lashes. I was hoping this would help keep my lashes curled while putting it on, but it didn't. Still searching for better mascaras.
I always buy this mascara, but never really see much volume added to my lashes. It comes in a fat tube, but that's not a big problem. The mascara is really wet, when it's new. I like it better when I'm starting to run out of it because the drier it gets, the less it sticks to other lashes. I also like that it doesn't uncurl my lashes, like other mascaras do -- that's why I stick to it.
I don't know WHAT made me buy this product, but it wasn't for me! I love to buy products that have cool names and meanings. In this case, So Chaud = So Hot ;) I don't know if it was a red-orange lipstick trend that led me to buy this, but it's really orange! I'm so focused on how the color looked on me, I don't even remember anything else about it! To my tan/Asian ladies: DON'T BUY THIS, unless you're going for a BOLD look!
I'm happy I found a lipstick color that actually looks good on me! I was about to give up on lipsticks, but I can't avoid the thought of having beautiful, matte lips! I bought this in Rum Raisin. It's a great color on me and the consistency is just right. The packaging is also amazing. I'm only giving it four stars because it could have better staying power. Overall, it's a great lipstick.
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

A friend of mine used this when doing makeup on me and I fell in love! Eyeshadow stays in place, no creasing and it lasts all day. I have no problems using this primer, so I won't be switching anytime soon! :D
I got this as a sample, so it's different packaging from the image. When I opened the mascara, it was the other way around. You would think the writing would be on the side that holds the product, but it's the opposite: the wand was on the side that had the name on it. As for the product, I didn't like it. I was excited to try it after seeing Michelle Phan crazy about Lancome, but it wasn't a hit for me. I usually curl my eyes, then put my mascara. After curling my eyes, I put on the product and it uncurled my eyes! I decided to try it a few more times, but it's really not working for me. Is it me or am I applying it wrong?
USELESS!! The packaging looks good, the brush looks good, but the product isn't! It clumped up my lashes!
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner
Happicuupcake 12/12/2012 11:07:00 PM
This is my go-to liquid eyeliner. I have been using it for 2-3 years now and haven't switched! The applicator is a felt tip pen, which is easy to use. I have tried the Victoria's Secret liquid eyeliner, but the applicator for that product was stiff. I found it harder to apply my eyeliner with it, so I really recommend this product. It stays put, doesn't smudge, stays on for a LONG time. It doesn't happen often, but after a while it might start fading by the inner and outer parts of your eyes. You can carry this along with some cotton swabs to clean up your eyes and touch up the fading areas. Not a big problem. I always bring this with me...juuust in case!
