I received this mascara in Sephora's Christmas package with all the different mascaras. This was the first one I took out of the kit and used. At first it seemed ok, the brush was alright for my liking. The packaging seemed like your normal mascara tube. My only gripe about this mascara is frankly, it sucks. It does not curl, lengthen or volumize your eyelashes. It feels like a dollar store mascara. By an hour after applying this mascara, it was already looking like I wasn't wearing any. My eyelashes would look bare and halfway down my face. It did not make my eyes pop at all, which is what I look for in a mascara. I wouldn't recommend this mascara to anybody. I only got a small size that was included with a bunch of others, but for the price of the full tube, I would rather pay for something else.
Styling Products -Garnier - Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray
InfamousBabyJ 2/27/2010 8:18:00 PM
I bought this on a whim one day while I was shopping at Wal-Mart. In the summer, I usually don't style my hair because of how hot it is, unless it's at night. So, to go out and run errands, I just spray some curl stuff in and go. I have hair that is somewhat wavy, somewhat straight. If I don't straighten it, its really thick semi wavy hair. And it's really long as well. I usually put gel in, scrunch, and then spray this to top it off. First off I LOVE the smell of this stuff. It's amazing!!! Second, this leaves my hair super soft and not crunchy and smelling good all day. It doesn't hold curl that well, but it doesn't make my hair crunchy which I'll take over not holding any day. I think this product might hold my curl a little better if my hair was a bit shorter, but because it's so long and thick, it really weighs it down. Other than that, I have no complaints at all and I will be buying this again.
I bought this color, along with the two blues from Love Lace. I wanted the whole collection, but they didn't have Pincurl when I went so that's that. I really like this color, I just have some quirks with it. You almost cannot match this color with anything. I went through my whole collection and I really cannot find a eyeshadow that wouldn't wash out my skintone to go with this. It's just one of those shadows you use on a lazy day when you just want to throw on an eyeshadow and run out the door. Also, when I depotted this and put it in my palette, it because really squishy. My magnet wasn't holding it down right so I pressed a little bit on the eyshadow and it almost went through the eyeshadow because it had softened up so much. A couple days later and its still doing that. Out of the whole collection, this color would be the one to be the hardest to work with. I'd purchase it again because by itself it is amazing, but I won't be pairing it with anything anytime soon.
I absolutely love this color. When the MUA showed me a preview of this MSF, I finally decided to jump on the wagon of the MSF's. I normally never get these because I only wear bronzer type materials during the summer months when I'm darker, but this one caught my eye. I used it as a highlighter for a couple days and I have to say I'm kind of mad this is LE. I can wear this ALL year and have it look amazing and not fake at all. The color is absolutely awesome and it gives just the right amount of payoff. The other color that came with this collection (comfort I think?) was way to dark for me and fake looking, so that's why I chose this one. I am now officially in LOVE with MAC's MSF and definitely will be buying more in the future.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes - Wicked [DISCONTINUED]

I absolutely love this color. I went to Wal-Mart the other day and was just looking at the stuff they had and this color really caught my eye. I grabbed it and went home to swatch it and I was so amazed to see how well this went on with no base and how pigmented it actually was. For the price of this you cannot go wrong at all and its so sparkly and pretty. I would recommend this to ANYBODY and I really wish people stopped thinking they have to spend a ton on makeup to get an awesome product, because honestly, you don't.
Ok, this item wasn't added so I decided to add it since everyone should know about this product!! I recently became a Avon representative only because I needed extra money and I didn't know anybody selling it at the time and alot of people I knew wanted stuff. So, I became one. I recieved all these demo books which is where you see kind of whats coming up in future catalogs and you can order them if you'd like to test them out or give away or whatever your little heart desires. I saw this mascara and since I tried all the mascaras from Avon and liked them before, I decided to give it a try. I have to say this is my new HG mascara. Every woman should own this!! It has a "bristle" type brush. Much like the CG mascaras. It gives awesome length, awesome definition, doesn't clump and makes your eyes REALLY pop. It doesn't have any funky smell like some other mascaras and I feel that it could definitely compare to the higher end mascaras no problem. I absolutely LOVE this mascara and am glad I got to try it out before anybody else because now I can recommend this new product and have people really see what I'm talking about. I would suggest everybody to at least try this mascara because for the price and what it does, you really can't go wrong!!!
I have to say I LOVE this lipgloss. I do think it happens to be kind of expensive for a lipgloss, and since I go through lipgloss like underwear, I can't see using it too often because I can't afford to be buying this every other month. Anyhoo, with that said, I happen to really enjoy this lipgloss. I saw it in one of the Sephora catalogs they send you every couple months and I loved the way it looked on the model. I put it in my favorites and said that the next time I went to Sephora I'd pick it up. The thing is, this lipgloss seemed to NEVER be in the store when I wanted it. I could not find it and they didn't have it listed in the store for the longest time. They had it online, but not the store. I finally went the other day and they had it. I bought it and went on my way. I love he packaging, I love the way the cap feels and how everything is really nice. I love the gloss, on my lips it comes on as a nude and has alot of golden shimmers. It reflects nice in the sunlight and keeps my lips very glossy. It's not a "sticky" type gloss at all and it's not gooey on my lips. I would recommend this to anybody that wants an awesome color and an even better payoff.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
InfamousBabyJ 9/14/2009 8:06:00 PM
Ok, so I have heard about this primer ever since I started buying higher end makeup about a year and a half ago. I always bought MAC products, since about 2006. I bought their prep and prime eye and thought that it was pretty good. I started hearing about the UDPP and thought, wow, everybody is talking about how GREAT this product is and how well it works. I kept saying to myself, I'll try it when my prep and prime runs out. Well, I started to realize that the prep and prime wasn't that good. After about 3 hours, my eyeshadows would crease and start to fade and wouldn't hold their vibrant colors anymore. It didn't matter if I used drugstore brands or the higher end brands, it all ended up doing the same. So, yesterday was my birthday and it was a big one (21) and my friend had given me a nice chunk of change to spend at Sephora through a gift card. I knew one of the things I wanted was definitely the UDPP. I was a little hesistant to buy it, only because I have been on youtube and numerous websites where people have said that there is alot of wasted product and how you have to cut the bottle open and take all the product out and put it in a jar. I thought that I'll deal with the issue when it arises, and bought it. I didn't use it at all that day because I was just going home, but I did use it the day I went out for my birthday. I ended up doing a smokey eye with very dramatic eyeshadow. Normally, when I would use the MAC prep and prime, my eyes would of been creasing about an hour and a half after I applied it. But, with the UDPP, those babies did NOT crease ONE bit. I was so happy to see that my money went to something good that is useful and actually works. I would definitely recommend this product to ANYBODY. The eyeshadow I happend to use was a drugstore brand and 6 hours after I had put my makeup on, it was still going strong with no fading and no creasing. I still am a little skeptical about the whole packaging deal, but like I said, I'll deal with it when it comes to that point. I think it is a little expensive for primer, and also a little expensive considering there is a lot of wasted product that we as consumers need to take out and put in a new container. I think the only reason they don't change the packaging is because it is called POTION and I think they kind of want to keep that genie type bottle because of the name.
Lip Gloss -Avon - Fruity Lip Juice - Golden pineapple
InfamousBabyJ 5/29/2009 3:53:00 PM
I don't even know if you could get these anymore, but I love this lipgloss. The smell and texture is like perfect and you can't go wrong. The color on my lips is like a nude, but with a hint of golden shimmer. Perfect for summery days and it's not sticky at all so if you hair happens to fall in it, it won't get disgusting and all over your face like with some other lipglosses.
I really like this lipgloss and the tingling it gives on my lips. I never wear this alone, I always put it on top of my lipsticks for a little extra gloss and a little extra plumpness. I would recommend this and for the price, you can't go wrong.
Lip Gloss -mark - Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss - Player
InfamousBabyJ 5/29/2009 3:49:00 PM
I got this is one of those holiday packages that Avon/Mark offer. I got a bunch of different Mark glosses and I don't like any of them. This one is ok, but the lipgloss feels SO chunky on my lips and it's extremely sticky. I wouldn't recommend any of these products and would rather buy something else.
I've been buying this color for as long as I could remember. I love how its glossy, yet nude at the same time and the smell isn't bad either. I would recommend this to anybody.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Creme de la Chrome in Gilt Complex
InfamousBabyJ 5/29/2009 3:44:00 PM
Never again. That's all I have to say. In the bottle, it looks like such a pretty shimmery color, but on my lips, I look like a dead robot. The texture itself is kind of nasty and the smell is horrible. I don't recommend this to anybody.
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Liquid Lip Shine in Pink Kiss
InfamousBabyJ 5/29/2009 3:41:00 PM
I don't understand why nobody loves these lipglosses. The smell is SO good and the color is awesome. I swear there like my new lipglosses next to MAC. And for the price, you cannot go wrong. This color inparticular is extremely bright and you only need a little bit to go a long way.
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers - Lime Alive
InfamousBabyJ 5/29/2009 3:32:00 PM
For a CG eyeshadow, this is one thats nice. An awesome spring color, and has really good payoff. I paired this with white and pink colors for a nice spring look and it was awesome. I would recommend this to anybody that wants a crazy color that you don't see everyday.
