Polishes -Sally Hansen - Xtreme Wear - Blue Me Away
Jenners10111 4/7/2012 5:30:00 PM
Pros: - really cool colour - you only need one coat - not too expensive Cons: -stains...BADLY..I wouldnt put this on without a base coat -the formula is a bit thick -doesnt dry very quickly overall I wouldnt personally reccomend getting it unless you really want the colour and you cant find one that matches it
I only have one of these so far and the one I have is quenched. I really like how it makes my lips soft and the consistency I guess is maybe a little bit greasy feeling but I prefer this over something goopy. The only complaint I guess that I would have is that it has a kind of gross taste. I am considering trying out the peppermint one because I do like how it makes my lips feel and its not expensive and maybe the peppermint will work like my quenched one but without the gross taste? worth a try at least
My favourite drugstore mascara by far. I dont get clumpy lashes and they look a lot fuller and a lot longer. I dont feel like they weighed down my eyelashes but keep in mind I do curl my lashes beforehand so that could help. I used to use this overtop another mascara until I realized I really only needed this one. I cant give it a full 5 stars because its not a miracle product or anything but I really really like it!
I like the medium (buildable to full) coverage of his foundation however I find the colouring to be awful. I have the light 1 because I am kind of pale but first of all..even the light 1 is too dark for me and Im not like ghostly pale or anything and in other foundations I never need the lightest shades. The biggest problem for me was how orange it was, I cant use this unless I want to look like an oompa loompa. Idk maybe it could work for somebody who is more tanned but it will just not work for me.
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Kwik off nailpolish remover

I love this thing so much! It is just so much quicker to take nail polish off with this sponge, taking nail polish off is not a chore anymore. I will say that I am now (after about 2 weeks of using it) having a problem with little sponge pieces coming off but this really wasnt a problem until I tried to take off very stubborn glitter nail polish with it. I had one of these before and it lasted me a lot longer so I just need to avoid the strong glittery nail polishes.
Palettes -Coastal Scents - Ultra Shimmer 88 eye shadow palette

Some of the pros I found with this were obviously the variety of colours and the price. I cant complain too much about the quality of the eyeshadows because the price is so good. I definitely prefer my more expensive eyeshadows like the urban decay shadows. I think this is a great palette for people just starting off with makeup or people who dont really use crazy colour on a daily basis and just want to have the options of colours in their collections (like me)
I have some pros and cons with this product. Pros are that it really lights up my face and I feel like it finishes off the whole look very well. Cons are the price, I found it a bit too expensive for what it does..I like it...Im not in love with it also sometimes I find that the shine from it is too much.
Primer/ Corrector -Make Up For Ever - HD Microperfecting Primer in 0 Neutral

I am surprised by the negative reviews on this, I can see how it may not be worth the price because I believe you can get stuff for about as good for less money but with that said, I do like how this works. As it is winter still my skin is pretty dry and without a primer my makeup just doesnt sit as well and doesnt look as flawless. This helps bring moisture to my face and makes makeup look much better. I just use one pump all over my face and it sets in very quickly and I dont find it greasy at all (but as I said I have dry skin and this might not work for people with oily skin) For the price I will have to mark it down a bit
I wasn't sure how this would work because it is so cheap, 3 dollars I believe. I was surprised that with one coat it was completely opaque, no streaking or anything. I think its amazing for the price. I also havent really noticed any problems with chipping or anything.
bought this recently and I cannot rank it against the first palette because I love both. The colours are so pretty and the texture is really buttery and so easy to blend. I also love the brush that comes with it and the naked lip junkie. I guess its a bit expensive but for all that comes with it I think its worth the price.
I am a little shocked by all the bad reviews! I dont think this is the best nail polish I own but I do like the formula. I noticed a lot of people said you need a lot of coats which I guess is true, it took me 3 coats to make it fully opaque. I have had the same sort of issues with *SOME* OPI nail polishes though but not all (example being 'listen to your momager from the kardashian kollection) but the consistency is something I like because its a more sheer and less goopy and thick polish and I just hate thick nail polishes, Ive had a lot of problems with sally hansen nail polish for that reason. I didnt find that it took very long to dry. There is a possibilty that I just got a very good one but if all of them are like the one I bought then I really do like this nail polish. For the record the one I have purchased is "104 Penthouse Pink" Also the price is not too bad considering prices of other polishes, Im from Canada and I got mine for around 7 dollars I believe.
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

This is my go to drugstore foundation. I have tried many others but this one works the best for me. Its definitely a buildable coverage so it would work for a lot of people. One downside is that I wish there were more shades, the shade I use is really close to my skintone but it would be a lot nicer if it had a more pink tone to it.
I bought this almost two months ago thinking it would be perfect for me in the winter as my skin gets kind of dry. I do like full coverage but this was just way too much even for me. I then started to use it just on spots where I wanted a little more coverage and I noticed it caused break outs and I never never never had a problem with break outs before so I tossed this stuff. Maybe it would work for somebody else but certainly not for me.
