I might possibly buy this again, maybe in different color. The formula leaves much to be desired, but the color is nice. It just doesn't stay. I usually use another lipgloss, and use this as base just to give off that coral color.
It's a good mascara. Good volume, thickening formula, and OK extension. The only problem was the irritation to my eyes, and the way it smelled.I felt like I was putting chemicals out the lab straight unto my face. I never experienced that with other mascaras. Something that smelled like that, cannot be good for u!
This perfume is Alien meet D&G The One. This perfume is comforting and sexy. Floral, vanilla, creamy, peppery, it does not settle. This perfume spells out trouble while the night is young, this is not an everyday perfume. It's dangerous, exotic, and asks for more. it reaches out to the fellow followers sniffing at ur neck, and does not seek their agreement. It's bold and different. Unique yet richly familiar.
I got this in a sample from Sephora, tried it out right away and loved it. I went right over to Nordstroms, wanted to purchase it right way, it was not out yet. This was in June, so I ended up getting the Lancôme hypnose volumizing. Star is better than all of the other mascaras that I've tried *10, including Benefits They're Real. It's not as thick, it's lengthening, and the brush gets the tiniest lashes in the corner. Lancôme hypnose doesn't have the same brush in its bottle. I can imagine how it might not work for those with shorter and thin lashes due to its consistency. If you have enough lashes and want a HE quality mascara that is worth its price, then this is for you.
I love this color. It's summery, refreshing, and eye-catching. The only problem is the Essie's brushes, which I am not comfortable with using. At least 2 coats will get the true color. Other than that, I love it!!
I would buy L'oreal mascara again, in different shape of the tube. This mascara lets too much out, but it is pretty good at lengthening and volumizing without giving out spider lashes. I do need to put a few layers before I can get the look I like. It's not bad for its price and a drugstore brand.

Crappy make up remover if you ask me. Almay has waaay better make up remover, and removal pads. Will never buy again!
Powder -Sephora - Tricks of the trade Mineral matte setting powder [DISCONTINUED]
JuJu05 5/18/2012 6:33:00 AM
I love this loose mineral setting powder. The price is very reasonable. It looks great with just a tinted moisturizer, actually since i've started using it, I've dropped on wearing my foundation so much. It goes great with my smashbox tinted moisturizer. You don't even need a facial primer, this setting powder will allow ur foundation/concealor to last, it lasted me through out some vigorous times. The price is very reasonable, and I actually got it when it was half off, so I lucked out there. It has not broke me out or anything, very light but effective. The packaging sucks. It comes in a big metal looking case, wish it was more functional packaging.
I looove this perfume. It is summery/ wintery, though I can see how it is more of a winter scent. I first smelled it on my co-worker, and I was walking far behind her like in the hallway. I loved it on her. Went to try it on, loved it on me. Didn't buy it then. Went back to Macy's to try it again, the employee who was trying to "help" seriously deterred me from buying it right then and there because she sprayed such a large amount at close proximity, that is smelled candyish. Anyways, an hour later, I realized that was the initial notes, though that's not what happened when I sprayed it the first time. An hour later I smelled floral, spicy, and refereshing scent. The way the notes play out remind me of NOTTE by Bvlgari. Not that the two scents are alike but the way they are so hard to describe and are so versatile. I really loove this perfume. The packaging is great. The price is so frigging expensive, $118 at Nordstrom's. would buy again, but i don't see that until a few years.
Tinted Moisturizer -Smashbox - Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

this moisturizer is better than average. I got it in medium tone. I give it 4 lippies only because it takes alot of product for it to show on my skin. A bit of it is moisturizing enough, but to get that smooth and sheer looking skin, it takes more product. Considering the price of this, I was hoping a little would go a long way. I do like it more for summer more than my regular foundation, and use it with Baked Physicians Bronzer and Mac Mineralize SkinFinish in gold spill. It is light and does not weight the skin down. It's long lasting and has not broke me out. If I find something similar that's of as good quality, I'd settle!
this is a great eyeliner. I don't understand why people say it smudges, to me it melts off, but does not smudge. The sales person at Sephor marked their hand with it, and tested it for me by rubbing for a while, nothing happened. I got it in darkest black, and when I wear it, it stays for 8+ hours. It only melts off at the end of the day.
This thing lives up to the name, literally! It makes your hair so soft, do not have to use a large amount, and it is so convenient, because it is leave in. I can't decide whether it yields better results after or before drying hair. I still have to figure out whether it works better on damp hair or dry hair, Either way, my hair is super soft...and it would take a whole lot before it greases out my hair.
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - Megalast Nail Color - Bite the Bullet

Yes, I would def buy it again! W&W nailpolishes are awesome, IDK if it is new formula in this line of polishes, but would def buy again. I wash my hands all the time, and this nail polish lasted me longer than a manicure before it chipped off, and only at the edges of my nails. I love the color.
the spice and ginger stand out the most to me in this perfume, but it doe have ocean clean scent so it is wearable in spring/summer, unlike omnia bvlgari or Gucci by Gucci. I thought at first it smelled like cool water, but realized that is only the vodka during the first few sprays. It can be overpowering. After about 10 mins, the initial vodka scent is gone, and you're left feeling a crisp, refereshing perfume yet comforting. It smells rich and more expensive than it actually is. Love it!!!

I love this lip balm. It makes my lips so soft, and it is very nourishing. I got it in a tube to avoid heavy packaging. I like to put it on under my matte lipsticks, and it lasts. Sometimes, i find it makes that funny line that lipglosses make, but i take it is only because it is moisturizing. Other than that, it is a good lip balm.
