I really wanted to love this mascara after seeing it on QVC. The model's lashes were out of this world! I bought the duo for $27.36 plus shipping. I applied the mascara and saw no real change from my ordinary drug store mascara. The mascara itself was a bit thin/watery and so didn't coat my lashes very well or add any volume. I applied like 5 coats of this thing and nothing! Throughout the day I didn't have any flaking or running, but at the end of the day I want to return it. I gave it a few days and a few tries to 'master' the application, but overall I am still not happy with the outcome and am very unpleased with my whimpy lashes even after applying Mally's Ginormous Lash Secret. Boo =(

I am a MAC NW 35 and this color shows up more white than pink on my skin. NOGO
Pur Balm is for lips, skin, and nails. I apply this everynight on my lips, but I don't notice much hydration.
Lipstick -Cover Girl - TruShine - Nude Shine 470 [DISCONTINUED]

Firstly, this color is more pink than nude. I am a MAC NW 35 and this color looks great on me. I have noticed that this lipstick fades after ~15 minutes and tends to dry my lips.
I have sensitive skin, but this product has never irritated my skin. I like the smell and it feels cool when I apply it. I have to let it dry for a couple minutes before I apply anything else over it. I have noticed it dries my skin at times, so I don't apply every day.
Primer/ Corrector -Bodyography - Veil Foundation Primer

When you apply this product, my face feels like silk, but I'm not sure how my powder foundation benefits from it. I haven't noticed this product extending my powder time on my face.

I bought 'cool beige' and it has been sitting away for over a year. This product is supposed to SET my 'smooth indulgence', but it doesn't really do anything.
Foundations -Dermablend - Smooth Indulgence long lasting matte finish
KimmmmmmiK 1/1/2010 4:36:00 PM
I've has this in my 'no use' makeup bin for over a year. I bought 'honey beige' to cover up some vitiligo spots near my eyes in the summer time. I don't use a liquid foundation so the dermablend is visible on my skin. I tried using this on my hands, but it was a no go.
Love it! The brush is a bit harder than drug store brands so it brushes my brows nicely and stays in place all day! I'll do a repeat purchase of this product!
Tinted Moisturizer -Ulta - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

I returned this the next day. I'm a MAC NW35 and I bought the lighter shade moisurizer because the other was too dark, but the one I got was too light. The product is tinted, but it seemed like nothing when I applied it.
Treatments (Eye) -Unlisted Brand - Lilash - Purified Eyelash Stimulator
KimmmmmmiK 1/1/2010 4:27:00 PM
For the first couple weeks, I would wake up with red and irritated eyes. My lashes HAS grown and although they haven't thickened, they have lengthened. I'm satisfied with this product, but if I choose to get another eye lash stimulator, I might try something else.
Used this as an eye cream and thought to put it on my future frown area and I broke out. Smells great and has good moisture capabilities, but I don't think I will get another after this bottle runs out.
Styling Products -Pantene - Curl Defining Scrunching Mousse

This product left me with frizzy curls instead of defined ones. I don't like this product, BUT it is silicone free which is great. I only use this product when I know I'm not going out. On the positive, my hair does not get oily and it leaves it feeling light and airy. As long as I don't look in the mirror too often, it's fine. =)
Conditioner -TiGi - Bedhead Moisture Maniac Conditioner

I am a curly girl and I use this product (mixed with water) as a CO wash for my roots since I am shampoo free. I find it cleanses my hair and leaves my scalp oil free. I mix this with lemon juice once every couple months to clarify my hair.
This product is essential for fellow curly girls. It is silicone free so it dosen't leave your hair feeling like silk, but it keeps my hair healthy.
