Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Complex 15 Therapeutic Face Cream
LushieLove 1/1/2013 11:49:00 AM
Let me start of by saying, you either adore his product or hate it. I'm finding that the people that dislike it either have very sensitive skin, and can't find a moisturizer that won't break them out, or they have very dry skin. Why buy a moisturizer that's known for being light if you don't want a light lotion? *Sigh* I don't get people. Don't knock the product for being ineffective when you're the one with the problem...? Regardless, I have an oily t zone, and I always seem to have clogged pores. I wanted something to put on after I wash my face just to keep it from feeling tight and uncomfortable without making me feel like a slimey oily greaseball. I was having problems finding a middle ground. Aloe gel wasn't enough, but even the light moisturizers made me feel gross. This stuff is perfect. It has a scent, but honestly I'd take it over the smell of baby powder any day. Bottom line: I finally have a moisturizer that isn't greasy. Someone finally made one, and I will most definetly buy this again!
Lip Treatments -Hard Candy - World Balmination in Bridal Blush

I really didn't have high hopes for this, yet it still seemed to disappoint me. I just expected a slightly nude tint with average lasting power but it was just sheer. No color pay off what so ever. On top of that the packaging is complete sh*t. When fully retracted it still has half of the product sticking out the top so when you put the lid back on it you end up nicking the tip. What's worse is that I bought it and used it when it was 90 degrees outside, so there is a huge dent on the side of it, purely because of poor design. Waste of money.
I bought this product after seeing a swatch of it on PinkieCharm's blog, and fell in love with the idea of it. I always see cute lip glosses that look great in the packaging but look average, or worse, clear on my lips, but this wasn't one of those. When I put it on you can see the flakey glitter on my lips, and better yet, when it wears off the glitter stays so your lips still have a rainbow glitter. The formula isn't anything special, but isn't anything bad either. Honestly when comparing this to your all time favorite lip gloss it may suck and deserve 1 star, but honestly, it serves it's purpose. It's just a drugstore lipgloss with unique glitter. And honestly, are you guys expecting a lipgloss to replace your morning cup of coffee? That's just common sense, in my opinion.
This lotion is amazing! Great for people with sensitive skin, and I love the scent. Leaves my skin moisturized yet dewy, and well as dry enough to touch anything. Perfect stuff!
Conditioner -Aussie - Hair Insurance Leave In Conditioner

I love this stuff! :) I sleep on my hair wet everyday to help my curls and this makes my curls gorgeously defined! If you EVER have issues with leave in conditioners weighing your hair down then this is totally for you. It's light, it smells great, and it does its job. My only wish is that it lasted longer. I go through this stuff like water!
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Plus White - 5 Minute Speed Whitening Gel
LushieLove 8/14/2011 2:29:00 PM
I love this. I bought this because I really wasn't wanting to fork over $40-$50 for whitening strips, due to the fact that I'm a student, and have no money... I was really impressed! After about 4 uses, i really started to see something! The only thing that really needs to change is the mouth piece it come with. This stuff makes your mouth foam, and there is no way to spit out the foam if you've the the mouth piece in, because there is no way to open your mouth. I recommend going to walmart and buying basic sports guards and making trays for yourself. Also, i have sensitive teeth, and the sensitivity wasnt too bad with this. I like to go for 2 days, and skip 1, then do 2 more, and skip one, and so on. This way my teeth get a break, yet they still get whitened very well. The 1st tube last me a 7 weeks, but the first week, since i didn't know how to use it, i used mayy more than i needed. So, $5 for like, 2 months, HECK YES.
I was really unhappy with this. It really wasn't what i was wanting when i bought it, so it was a huge disappointment. I found it to be very greasy, and not a softening as it was put on to be. My hands are not very dry, but they're very rough. I was hoping this would make my skin smooth, while adding a bit of moisture, but that wasn't it. I had to wipe my hands off on a rag 20 min later, because i couldn't handle the grease. I honestly think that canola oil would have left the same amount of grease on my hands. The smell was pleasant, and the packaging was nice, but it was just too greasy. :(
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Black Raspberry Vanilla Lotion

I really didn't like this product. I thought rather than smelling like black raspberries and vanilla, it reminded me of black currants, with a hint of iced tea. I really don't like black currants, so this wasn't a great thing. The staying power is about as average as it gets. It simply wasn't bad, but it really wasn't anything memorable. Meh. Simply meh.

I really love this scent! It starts out as a nice berry scent, but then blossoms into this more sophisticated amber-y berry. Im a teenager, but i love to wear more complicated scents, so some of BBW's newest scents have been big hits in my perfume cabinet. I get a lot of compliments on this, as well as my moonlight magic spray(no difference!). Ive noticed i only get compliments from women with this scent, but with others, like winter candy apple. i only get compliments from men. Its kind weird! It also last pretty long compared the rest of B&BW's scents. The body splash lasts long enough, that i didn't bother to spend the extra and get the perfume.
I was plesantly surprised by this! When i first got it, i hated it! It was wet, and i felt as if it clumped to the brush too much,and i couldn't do much with it! but after 3 weeks, it dried a bit, and became AWESOME! Its soo great! after you get the product that collects on the tip, its SOOO volumizing! I admit the brush is big, and its hard to get in on the inner lashes, but that is actually a good thing. If you work REALLY hard on your outerlashes, and than lightly get your middle and inner lashes,than it makes them look LONG and FULL! In impressed, but only after it dries a bit!!
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner - Black

I really like this! Its cheap, as far as crene liners go, it doesnt budge, it dries quick, and doesnt flake at the end of the day! Pros: nice price stays put doesnt flake lasts all day cons: bad color selection lid kinda hard to put back on applicator might as well be used to scrape ice off your car windshield. Great product if you've got your own brush!
This mascara is nothing special! It didn't really do much. It doesn't lift my lashes, all it does is darken them... i gave it 3 because its not good, or bad. Just meh.
Eyeliner -Cover Girl - Liquiline Blast- Violet Voltage
LushieLove 11/14/2010 12:43:00 PM
I LOVE this! I have blue-green eyes, and i HATE dramatic liner, so this is perfect. I like to put this on my top water line, so it transfers lightly to my bottom water line. Ive gotten more compliments on this liner than other one! I<3It! It only smudges down to my lash line after 13 hours... The only con, is that horrible smudger on the end... WHAT IS IT FOR!? its useless!!!
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Last Matte Lipstick in 901B Think Pink

This was GROSS. Its too pastel-y. Its so drying, that i wear chapstick under it, because it TUGS sooo much when i apply it! Its just too pastel-y! Eww!
This was a bit too plastic smelling for my taste. It also smelled too buttery. I under stand its hard to get sweet foody scents without making them a buttery mess, but i think this didn't live up to its potential. I loved how the little beads were black, instead of blue, i thought it matched in a cute way! If you like the cliche cupcake scent, GO FOR IT!
