Wow waste of money. Lengthens and volumizes but smudges within minutes. Thank you for making me look like a panda, L'Oreal. Will never buy again!!
Cleansers -Lancome - Huile Douceur Remove All Deep Cleansing Oil

I LOVE this product. I used to use Shu Uemura cleansing oil but since they discontinued that product in the US, I've been looking for an alternative. This product works just as well, as a nice smell (although it could be strong for some) and takes off waterproof mascara, which is FANTASTIC!!! For those who are breaking out, you may not be using it right. You can't just rub it on your face and then wash it off. You have to rub it on your face and then mix in some water with it and rub some more. It then foams up like a regular face wash. The price is alot better then Shu Uemura and works just as well so I'm sticking to this one for a long time!
Not a bad product. I use this whenever my skin breaks out and it significantly reduces the size of the pimples I get. I haven't tried it overnight but for it to reduce it by 50% in 20 minutes is pretty great. It doesn't seem to clean the pores or anything so I took off a lippie for that. I like the minty feeling on my skin. Makes it feel nice and clean!! I would buy it again definitely.

This was a great find through MUA. It works amazing as a primer. My skin feels nice and soft and perfectly prepped for my foundation. My foundation definitely looks alot better with this stuff underneath. I was getting ready to throw out the foundation that I had because I felt like the finish just wasn't quite right but with the primer underneath, it made a big enough difference for me to keep the foundation. HOWEVER -- this stuff totally makes my skin breakout. Because of that, I had to take off a lippie. But I still love the product anyways because it works great and is cheap. I just can't use it everyday but I will use it on special occasions. If I can only find a primer that doesn't make me break out!!!!
I like this mascara alot. It gives my asian lashes volume and length. I only used one coat though so I'm hoping if I try two coats, I can get more volume and length without any clump. It doesn't seem clumpy. It washes off easily. It doesn't smudge. I haven't noticed a smell so I'm not sure what people are talking about. The wand is bigger than what I'm used to but I don't find it to be a problem. I think it enhances my lashes alot and I don't get that spidery affect like some other mascaras might give. *UPDATE* this mascara is far too smudgy for me. It gets under my eyes within 20 mins of putting it on. Although it works well, I will not be repurchasing due to this reason. Too bad because other than that it's a great product.
This product still smudges on me all the time and the staying power is not impressive. I don't think it's as pigmented as other eyeliners out there. I am pretty disappointed considering the rave reviews. I'm sure it's a great product for some, but for me it just didn't cut it.
This is my favorite bronzer. It looks dark in the pan but it comes on light on your skin. It's very buildable yet doesn't make you look cakey. I have naturally tan skin and it shows up on my skin very well. I have also used this on a friend of mine who has ivory skin and it looked amazing on her! I actually use this on my neck and chest as well and the color it gives me is wonderful. This stuff is great!
I have a love/hate relationship with this product. I have medium skin color (NC42 I think??) and sometimes I think the color is a little too bright and pink for me. I usually just dust on just the slightest bit on my cheeks to get the color that I want, and because of that, this product has lasted me forever. I have tried it on my other friends who have similar skin color to me and it always looks great on them. I have also tried it on my other friends who have super pale ivory skin and this color still looks good on them too, but they also just need a wee bit on their cheeks -- too much and you can start to look clownish. It's lasted me so long that I think it's worth the $20 something dollars that I paid.
Blush -L'Oreal - True Match Superblendable Blush in Bare Honey
JuicyGlam 12/17/2009 11:46:00 AM
This is a really nice blush. The color is a warm peachy color which looks good on pretty much every skin tone. I usually wear this with my bronzer and it looks great. Great for day time wear, or in the summer. It's very pigmented so a little goes a very long way and the color is buildable,but you really won't need a lot! I have had this blush for well over a year now and there's still plenty more of it! The brush that it comes with isn't so bad either and is very convenient on days when you are in a hurry. I would purchase it again, but there are so many colors in this collection that I want to try, I dont know if I'll be able to.
Bronzers -Victoria's Secret - Bronze Goddess Mosaic Bronzer

This was a pretty decent bronzer. Not too sparkly which is good. Color builds on well and looks good on my skin. I have asian skin (I think I'm a NC42??) I paid less than 10 bucks for it so for the money I paid, I thought it was a good product and I would probably buy it again. I have tried better bronzers out there though, but this will be in my top 3.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Extra Volume Collagen Mascara (waterproof)

What was I thinking when I bought a mascara without reading the reviews here first. The clumpiest mascara in the world! Will never buy again. Had to toss it out after a couple of weeks. It was driving me insane to see clumps all over my lashes.
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara Waterproof
JuicyGlam 12/17/2009 11:37:00 AM
I have tried this product a few years ago and thought it was good but when I purchased it again last week, it will be the last time I buy it. It gives my lashes length, but no volume whatsoever. The brush is so small and skinny, it doesn't do alot for my lashes. The formula is not thick so it doesn't create any clumps but again, no volume. After an hour, it smudges like crazy. I look like a raccoon after wearing this. It's also hard to wash off. I use the Almay oil free wipes and it's a pain to remove. For those that think this is good because it holds a curl, any waterproof mascara will hold a curl. People need to stop rating waterproof mascaras on their ability to hold a curl!!
I have never liked foundation and the only foundation I have ever really liked is Bare Minerals. I tried this product for the first time awhile ago and I loved it instantly. Its very creamy and gives just the right amount of coverage. I have even skin tone for the most part but I'm extremely oily. This doesn't matte down my skin and has a natural finish -- it doens't even look like I have any foundation on!! My skin still gets oily half way through the day but the foundation lasts all day. It's great, I can't get enough of it and I'm willing to leave BM for this stuff.
I got this product on sale so I thought I'd give it a try. The brush was a little weird at first because it was thin and flexible but it never has too much product on it so that was nice. It definitely lengthens my lashes which is great but does not give it much volume or fullness. I usually have to wiggle the wand a little to get a bit more volume. Still an overall good product and would purchase again if it was on sale.
I loved this product -- it provided just enough coverage without looking too cakey and it was priced right at about $3. I bought it for the oil control and unfortunately it didn't help with that at all. I use an oil control lotion before applying the foundation but after just a couple hours, my nose gets all shiny still. I might still buy this foundation just because I do like it but I would have to constantly blot my skin.
