Good product, smooths fly aways and frizz.
Hm, I have mixed feelings about this product. I have the Jasmine one. The smell is AMAZING but the consistency is not that great. It's a bit sticky and I can say that I have purchased better lip butters for a cheaper price. I don't think that it is as hydrating and long lasting as it should be. The only good thing about this is that I do feel good applying it...because of the beautiful baby pink cap and the gorgeous smell. Everyone was talking about the Korres lip butters and I gave in...but will I repurchase? Most likely not.
Cleansers -Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Moisturizing Cream Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]
Hasmik19 12/27/2009 1:32:00 AM
Unfortunately, this cleanser did not work for me. I wanted to like it so badly BUT it doesn't remove makeup at all!!!!!!!!!!! The reason why i DO wash my face before going to sleep is to remove makeup...if this can't do that then it's not for me. Overall, I think if you don't wear makeup this is great for you but for those who want something that removes makeup (without having to do extra steps like using a toner to clean the massive residue left behind) I say don't bother. Did nothing for my redness and overall, I felt like I was messaging a plastic consistency cream on my face and washing it off without making ANY difference to my face. Ahhh the search for the perfect cleanser for my sensitive skin continues.
I like this blush. Do I LOVE it? Not really. I think the color is beautiful and I like wearing it. It gives a very nice glow and beautifully peachy cheeks. The downside of this is packaging. I don't like it at all...and the fragrance is nice but I hope that does not irritate my skin. Overall, beautiful color and I would recommend it. If I don't find a product that compares to this (Nars Orgasm does, but I like this betteR) I will continue repurchasing. But I got another blush Cargo blue ray Pink blush and that definitely ranks higher than this one and I absolutely LOVE it. Usually, if I'm not in love with a product I don't repurchase...so for the long run I can conclude that I won't find this in my make up bag.
Perfect pink blush for me. First I thought the color looked too light, but when I put it on it truly gave the most natural and beautiful pink color on my cheeks. I LOVE this and will repurchase. It builds up nicely too so if I want a bit more blushed look I just put more on. AMAZING product! Best blush (better than Benefit Coralista and Nars orgasm)
The eye shadows in this palette are absolutely gorgeous!!!! I cannot believe how beautiful EACH color is. So versatile and usable. I HIGHLY recommend this palette to anyone who likes neutral shades. You can create so many looks with these and this kit will be a must have in my make up bag from now on. 9 beautiful shades--matte, shimmery....you can't go wrong with this palette. Try this and you will NOT regret buying it. The only shade that is hard to wear is Nude Beach which has golden glitters in it but it's such a beautiful color...the golden flecks fall on my cheeks so I minimize the use of only that one shadow. The rest, however, are being used regularly and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this makes my eyes absolutely gorgeous. The suggestions of the cards that come with the palette are also helpful. Mix and match and you will create any look you like. Thank you Too Faced for an amazing product with wearable shades (rarely have i come across an eyeshadow palette that has all of its shades wearable like this). Would I repurchase? ABSOLUTELY
Lip Treatments -Yves Saint Laurent - Exfoliating lip balm
Hasmik19 11/7/2009 3:05:00 AM
What a disappointing product. It has not helped my lips to stay soft and smooth at all. In fact, now that I wear lipstick,my lips look more chappy! Basically, this scrub doesn't smoothly take away dead skin. I recently went up to a make up artist and told her that by using this on my lips I have gotten worse results . She asked me if the beads are smooth and spherical (that's what is best) ...i came to double check and certainly this wasn't the case with this exfoliator. It's just sugar basically in this expensive tube...all raggedy and uneven. you can D.Y.I or buy a cheaper MAC or Laura Geller lip strip (which do have spherical beads!) . They probably work better. Save your money don't buy this. I own many YSL products but this will NOT be repurchased. Terrible =(. I can't believe they would even put such a crappy product out
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation
Hasmik19 10/8/2009 8:34:00 PM
I got a sample of this at Sephora and I am really disappointed. This product DID NOT BLEND very well. I had a flaky finish so I hated it. Luckily, I also had gotten a Dior Nude sample and loved it and went back to purchase it. I'm not sure if my sample was bad (cause I had heard good things about this foundation) but there is no way I will repurchase. If you have dry skin, this probably isn't good anyway. I like a glowly finish
Just like the conditioner, this is a must have for curly haired girls :) I've tried everything, and this is the only product that helps me get the most natural, beautiful and healthy curls.
AVEDA has the BEST products for curls (I have tried Fekkai, Marc Anthony, Matrix, Sunsilk, you name it). Be Curly line is a MUST TRY FOR all curly haired girls. I learned about this when Leona Lewis said that's what she uses for her curls. I am so glad I tried it! I had been on a hunt for products that hydrate my curls and with this conditioner alone I get beautiful results! I have tried the Be Curly curl intensifier/enhancer as well and everyone asks what I have been using for my curls. MUST HAVE
Unfortunately, this cleanser dries out my skin. I really wanted to like it. It is SO SOFT and the foam is so light. Definitely a pleasure to put this product on the face. I will not repurchase b/c I have sensitive skin and it dried it. However, I do know they have a SULFATE-FREE version of this, which is to prevent drying. I think I'll just go back to their other cleansing milk (which I did own previously and loved). I'll go back to that for winter :)
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink
Hasmik19 10/8/2009 7:40:00 PM
I have to agree, this is a great eyeliner because it STAYS ON ALL DAY. the reason i switched to this was b/c it is long wear. I always had pencil eyeliners smudge by the end of the day but this doesn't smudge on the corner of my eyes. I'd probably repurchase...it's my first gel eyeliner, so I have nothing to compare it too. Better than pencil? Definitely. Just use a good brush. I use Benefit Get Bent and it works great.
Blush -Revlon - A Floral Affair Sheer Powder Blush - Peachy Keen [DISCONTINUED]
Hasmik19 10/8/2009 7:38:00 PM
This blush is wonderful! It gives me the most natural finish! The colors are absolutely gorgeous. I swirl them together and apply. It also gives a very subtle but perfect GLOW. I can wear this blush everyday to give my cheeks a pinch of color. BEAUTIFUL! Btw, I think they did discontinued this. But I am not sure.
Blush -L'Oreal - Blush Delice in Raspberry Sorbet ] [DISCONTINUED]
Hasmik19 10/8/2009 7:35:00 PM
I LOVE this blush. It does give a very nice finish to the cheeks. I like the color a lot. FIrst I thought the pink was too intense, but it comes out on cheeks very natural. And the shimmer is subtle, so I top my blush with some highlighter to give a glow boost (not needed but i love a dewy, glowy finish so i do it). ALSO, it smells sooooo good. Smells just like raspberries. Great drugstore find.
Blush -MAC - Mineralize Blush Duo - Moon River (Grand Duos Coll.)
Hasmik19 10/8/2009 7:32:00 PM
Well it is a gorgeous blush. However, I have to agree that it doesn't give much color to the cheeks. I have to use this with my Loreal Rasberry Sorbet (which is a nice pink) to have an overall glowy pink cheeks. SO basically, I use this for HIGHLIGHTING or to give my cheeks a GLOW. But if you want to use it as a blush, use a dense blush brush (I use MAC #129) and pack it on. You put a lot of product on but it finally gives color. Would I repurchase? No. But again, this looks gorgeous in my makeup bag. The only reason I wouldn't repurchase is b/c I am sure I can find something that is just as pretty ...maybe i'll give Nars orgasm a try...maybe.
