This review is the for the bubbi flawless HD brush. Bubbi's flawless hd brush I have a love/hate relationship with. Only thing I hate about this brush is it's size.it takes forever and a day to apply foundation due to its size but its absolutely fantastic for getting into those corners like the sides of your nose and etc. Other then that I have no problems with it. Its actually quite a good dupe for the shiseido foundation brush that came out recently. The size, density, handle, and shape is near to exact. Just the color of the handle and bristles is different. I will state that this isn't my go to foundation brush just because it takes forever to actually apply foundation. Also because the brush has EXTREMELY DENSE PACKED SYNTHETIC BRISTLES it doesn't soak in the product but the thing about that is, it sheers out the foundation which if your like me and you use medium coverage foundations on a day to day basis, it basically sheers down the foundation to light coverage so I would recommend you use it with very heavy coverage foundations such as cremes and what not. Also with the angle it has like I said its wonderful to get into those small areas around the nose and etc but the bad thing about that is that angle doesn't allow you to really "buff" in the foundation. Your really just dragging the brush rather then buffing it in and for me I perfer to buff so I don't have to deal with streaks as much (btw the brush hardly gives you streaks which I guess is a plus side)
To the people who has been looking for it here in the us, let it be known that nude delight is OFFICALLY APART OF THE MOISTURE RENEW LINE IN THE US! On to the review. This lipstick is one that I've had my eye on for literally YEARS! and when I saw it at target I ran to the register and purchased it and it does not disappoint. Yes it is a bit orangey but honestly thats the factor i like about it. its a nude that doesn't wash people out and yet keeps the beige factor without looking like death is right around the corner and its moisturizing.of course not as moisturizing as say the lip butters from revlon but none the less moisturizing. yes the lasting power isn't the greatest but honestly, I don't mind reapplying. I can see this becoming one of my favorites very quickly.
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder
KilluhXCee 4/24/2012 4:28:00 AM
this is by far one of the best drugstore powders I have ever used and its the only powder I finished up and have gone through numerous amounts. It never looks cakey, gives a flawless finish, and always looks great in pictures. The packaging is also really cute (at least I think so). Just my only gripe with this is the color range really...its really quite terrible but other then that this is a amazing powder from the drugstore!
Mascara -L'Oreal - Waterproof Voluminous Carbon Black
KilluhXCee 4/23/2012 4:34:00 PM
I absolutely disliked this mascara with a passion when I had this. First off....loreal you must have some weird ideas on what a waterproof mascara must be cause this is not waterproof at all. I have a monolid so that means I have stick straight lashes thats hard to notice because the eye skin folds over my lashes a bit. this mascara is to wet of a formula to work for me......thats all I need to say oh and that I had raccoon eyes in less then a hour. maybe i'll give this a shot again in the future but as for now...no
Mascara -Maybelline - The Falsies Flared Waterproof
KilluhXCee 4/23/2012 4:27:00 PM
this mascara was pretty decent for me. I have pretty short straight asian lashes and because I have a monolid, its really hard for my lashes to be noticed because of the extra skin that folds over my eyelashes. first off the packaging I found was cute just I'm not a fan of purple, also the wand on this I found was great. Because of its shape and the odd curve it had it made it super easy to get right into those inner corner lashes and made applying mascara to the bottom lashes a absolute breeze. as for the formula, I really liked it all though I have to say it didn't do anything to really WOW me but it was a great mascara none the less. would I repurchase? yes. But I'm always looking for the next best thing so I don't think I'ma repurchase anytime soon
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Eden Allure - Pure Moroccan Argan Oil
KilluhXCee 4/23/2012 3:46:00 PM
I absolutely adore this product! a little background on my skin, I have combination skin more leaning on the oily side and very sensitive and acneprone. I've been hearing rave reviews left and right about argan oil and saw it on sale on hautelook and thought I would give a shot. Honestly I really wasn't expecting much but wow....it totally blew me away. My skin is much more brighter, less acne, and most of my scars are starting to fade really well! all I do is put one pump into my day moisturizer, mix it together and use it. and for night, two pumps all over my face and sleep.whatever I have leftover on my hands, I rub on my eyes. I have to admit, because it was a oil I didn't think it would sink in so nicely and leaves your skin feeling so soft its amazing! I also stopped using my mario bedescu drying lotion because I noticed the argan oil alone calms down any existing acne on my face. honestly for those people who need help fading acne scars and help healing the current ones you should try this!
I absolutely love nutty! I have to say this is a amazing eyeshadow from the drugstore that is under 3 dollars. it makes a amazing lid color thats been compared to satin taupe. honestly I perfer this over the lid color in the maybeline natural smokes quad cause I feel even with primer that one does not show up. The thing I really dislike but also like about the shadow is that its super soft. Its a good thing because it makes it alot easier to pick up and easier to blend but the bad thing is it crumbles really easy. My first one crumbled so bad I had to put it in my everyday minerals sample jar to savor it (put those containers to use ladies!).Also the package has a love & hate relationship with me. so I love that the package is extremely study but its also hard to open and despite it being so study its still manages to crack my eyeshadows whenever I drop it. Again W&W please work on this. So do I believe its a staple yes. But I really wish wet&wild would fix the crumbling problem other then that its absolutely amazing
I wanna buy all the colors from this line! These are everything I want in a lip product! Moisturizing,creamy,full coverage finish,glossy,doesn't crease into my lip lines. I have creme brulee and after this one I wanna get every single color! Ladies also as a sidenote, I have sesitive lips where they peel like crazy with any lip product among the lipstick and lipgloss category and this does not make my lips peel at all! It if anything makes my lips feel extremely hydrated. More then my lipbalm actually! Get this get this get this!
I truly love this cleanser. I hardly ever go through cleanser besides the tried and true that I love but this is one of the rare ones that I finished and have repurchased its feels like a cleansing oil when in reality it's not. people say on here that's it's good for taking off makeup but honestly I dont really do that EVER. I just stick to using my laneige makeup removing cleanser then go in with this after because I feel the laneige one is kinda better but on the this cleanser itself. so as I have said the makeup removing part its okay but not the best since I tried to remove my makeup with it once. its great for dry skin cause it moisturizes cause of the olive oil in the product. but because of the olive oil in the product it can break you out. it's really gentle and great for most skin types I have super dry skin and this does wonders for me and my boyfriend who has super oily skin and really acne prone loves this as well. honestly all around I think this is a great cleanser currently i'm trying the green tea one so when I'm done with that I think I'ma go back to this
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
KilluhXCee 7/4/2010 9:52:00 AM
This is absolute holygrail eyeliners! :D I seriously used to use this everyday before I moved on to gel liners I have a monolid so it's kinda hard to find eyeliners that will work for my eyeshape and with that it's even more difficult to find one that won't smudge and also will last. I went through a TON of eyeliners let me tell you and most if not all can't compare to this this eyeliner in general is amazing <3 my own mother even stole this from me because it was that good :P but I kinda stopped using the black one 1.as I have said my mom stole mine T.T 2.I'm using the stash more because it's really nice on nc25-35 skintone and its really not as harsh as black and it gives a nice look to the monolid eye if you have a monolid I def reccomend this eyeliner
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm
KilluhXCee 6/7/2010 2:57:00 AM
I'm going to honest.... I'ma lip balm whore... I loveeeee trying new lipbalms and finding out what works the best for me so far... from the all the lip balms I tried this is by for the best. my hg before this was the fresh lipbalm in strawberry from the face shop. but after trying this I think this is my new hg. what I actually perfer about this over the other one is that its less thick but moisturizes so well. one from the face shop was alot thicker but it left a nice glossy look. this one does the same thing just less thick but I will say that the one from the face shop smells a little less artifical LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover
KilluhXCee 6/6/2010 4:10:00 AM
I think neutrogena is a brand most people trust. with me it's usually a hit or a miss. I either love the product or I completely hate it. with this I love it! but I will say it can be a little better. one thing I lovee about this is that it gets everything off! and let me tell you I rarely ever use non waterproof mascara. but the one thing I dislike is that sometimes depending it takes a while to get everything off. I would'nt say it's my HG stats but it's among the best of drugstore *sigh* I'm still on the hunt for my HG
omg... this is terrible! I was hoping for a dry shampoo that will take away the shine and give me nice volume.. HA! this thing made the little volume I had dissappear! and made it look even more greasy then it was -_- terrible don't buy! thank god I got it half off
This is the only tube of mascara I have ever really finished in my entire life. some background-I'm korean and I have pretty okay lashes not to long but not by any means short. But not really thick either and are stick straight.I mean it's not exactly the "best" I tried but ehh it's really good for drugstore. it gives a good amount of length,volume, and holds a curl like no other LET ME TELL YOU! even though a nap that sucker is still curled but the thing i can't STAND about this mascara as with every other covergirl mascara. This is a pain to take off.... I find the only thing that will take this off pretty decently without rubbing So much out of my eyes is olive oil so just a warning to you and the packaging is'nt all that great but it's about the product inside right? yea for you asians out there this is a pretty decent mascara

This is offically my HG leave in conditioner. I always try and stray away cause I love trying out new stuff for my hair but I could never find any that could compare to this I always come back to it cause it's the only one that KEEPS the split ends away and makes my hair EXTRA soft and on top of that it smells like raspberries omg love love love this <3 I hope they never discontinue it *knock on wood*
