Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Colour Caresse Shine Stain / Shine Caresse
MOIx2 1/16/2013 1:28:00 PM
I love these things!!! I have Endless Red and I love everything about it. Very opaque when first applied. Color slowly fades throughout the day and leaves a nice berry just bitten look on your lips. Doesn't dry them out either, so lasting power is awesome. Consistancy is a little sticky but nothing like a MAC lipglass. Scent is a little similar to the caresse lipsticks, fruity with a little floral. I don't mind it at all. And packaging is so cute. I like the gold little tube and the applicator makes easy application. Can't wait to try out more colors.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Xtreme Wear - Pacific Blue

This color is beautiful! I don't normally wear bright colors like this during winter time but I couldn't resist after buying this polish. It's a royal blue with a little purple/lavendar undertones. Formula is great as well. Very opaque after two thin coats and drys really fast. If you see this you have to buy!
Dark brick red color that lasts for hours and doesn't dry our my lips. I don't mind the scent, it goes away after a few minutes. Perfect for fall/winter!
Pretty good concealer. I mainly use it to clean up my eyebrows after filling them in. I recently began using it underneath my eyes and I really like it. The formula is pretty creamy but doesn't crease and lasts a whole 8 hour work day. Also really affordable, especially if you get it on sale. Will purchase again when I run out.
Found this at Target and i'm really liking the color. Perfect for the summer to fall transition. It's not so bright but also not too dark. A very pretty blue, teal with a little grey. Very different from what I have. Love finding nail colors that I don't already own. Formula is also very good! Two coats gave me opaque coverage.
Candles -Bath and Body Works - Pineapple Mango Home Fragrance Oil

One of my favorite year round scents. Smells exactly like the name. Pineapple mango. A staple in my home. Love it!
BBW website description is, blend of fresh juniper, sugared sap and sage.
This by far has to be one of my favorite candles from BBW! The scent is so fresh and clean. Doesn't have the spice your typical fall/winter candle has which is why I think you can burn this year round. Smells a little like a light mens cologne, not as strong as Mahogany Teakwood. I have the 3 wick and burns great. Going to stock up before they pull them off the shelves!!!
Candles -Bath and Body Works - Marshmallow Fireside

This candle is different from your usual "fall/winter" candle. Smells of marshmallow with hints of vanilla and then a smokey campfire. I love it!! They did a awesome job in putting it into a candle. Never would of thought to put the scent of a burning fire into a candle. my 3 wick burned nicely and it smells up my whole room and hallway. Great scent! One I will be purchasing when it's in season. Make sure to grab these 3 wicks when they're 2 for $20!!
When this pencil gets dull, which happens FAST, the plastic that surrounds the actual product is pain to sharpen. It's super hard to spin in the sharpener. I like the product but the packaging sucks. Product is nice, pigmented with a waxy consistancy. Brush on the other end is good as well. Please change the plastic, a retractable pencil, that would be great.
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)
MOIx2 9/11/2012 1:24:00 PM
I've been repurchasing this pressed powder for years and I can't believe i'm just now reviewing it. Very comparable to MAC's blot powder. I use this to set whatever is on my face that day, liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer. Controls my oil for the most part of the day. I just don't like the packaging, the cap gets loose fast and doesn't stay on. Overall great product and is def a drugstore staple.
Bought this in 370 Natural Tan with hopes that it will match my NC42 skin. It's still a little light and is more on the cool side so it makes my face look pink. Looks really awkward in pictures, especially ones with a flash. I correct it with a darker powder and it looks somewhat decent. Coverage, lasting power, and packaging all get a 2 thumbs up for me. I just wish it matched me better. Unfortunately I won't be repurchasing this for that reason.
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

It's so hard to find a drugstore foundation with enough yellow undertones for me. They always end up being too cool and in pictures it looks horrible. This foundation in Suntan w5.5 is almost perfect for my NC42 skin. It has just the right amount of yellow undertones in it, it could have more but it's no biggie. Looks great with flash photagraphy as well which is a big plus. One layer evens out my skin, gives me a satin to matte finish. And I set with Rimmel's Stay Matte pressed powder. It does start to wear off after about 7 hours which is fine as it's not advertised to be long wearing. The bottle is cute and non bulky so it doesn't take up much space but a pump would be nice. That's my one and only complaint about this stuff other then that I have officially found a DRUGSTORE foundation that matches my skin!!
I will continue to buy these lashes until they stop selling them. They are my staple lash. It gives your eye that extra umph. Really light weight and great worn with or without eyeshadow. I love the fact that they flare out at the ends. Make your eyes appear bigger. Normally they sell for a little under $4 at Target or WalMart but sometimes they're hard to find because they're so popular. So I choose to get mine from online retailers like, Madame Madeline. 4 pairs for $2.60 each, now that's a steal!!! My HG lash! LOVE!
Beautiful palette. Wide variety of colors. You can do a natural neutral day time look to a dark smokey night time look. Love the versitility of this palette. I have two little complaints though. I'm not too happy about the cardboard packaging inside. I wish they used plastic similar to the Naked2 palette. Makes me feel a lot better when I spend a good amount of money on a product. Also I would of loved if they included a shimmery lighter shade. The best compliment to a dark smokey eye is a bright, slightly shimmery inner corner. Other then those two things this palette is awesome. Comes with a full sized black eye liner in Perversian, which is very similar to MAC's Feline. And a mini Primer Potion. Overall a great palette. Love love love!!!
Bought one in Violet Chiffon. Love love love! It's a fushia/purple, more on the pinkier side as it wears off. Very moisturizing, pigmented and has a night sweet scent. My only gripe is that it doesn't last very long. You can wear it sheered out or layered for more a bright punch. Overall a great lipstick!!
EDIT 8/17/12: Just purchase another one in Sunset Angora. It's a little unforgiving then Violet Chiffon. If your lips aren't exfoliated enough it can bring out the dryness and dry skin. It's a beautiful color though. Pretty coral pink. Thinking about picking up some more!
EDIT 9/7/12: Bought anothe in Fiery Viel. Orange red. Once again, did not disappoint. These things are great!!!
