Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Gel Eyeliner Sapphire Shimmer
MermaidKisses 8/15/2005 10:24:00 AM
I love BB's gel eyeliner's. This is the perfect shimmery dark blue. It glides on easily and last all day without smudging or budging. I like it layer a little bit for a more intense color. Also, the best way to apply this gel eyeliner you need a really nice eyeliner brush. Preferribly a flat one instead of a pointed one.
As a regular eye sahdow I was unimpressed. Other reviewers said that this only shows up black. When I use it as a dry shadows I do see some blue but not much. As a wetshadow it looks amazing! I *love* to use it wet as a liner. Beautiful blue shimmers on a black base.
This is the first heated eye lash curler I've ever tried and I must say I LOVE it!! It works so much better than a regular metal curler. I was able to get a curl closer to my lash line and the curl was more intense and lasted much longer. Also, I find it easier to use than a regular curler. I will never ever go back and it was a great sale price!!
Lips -Bath and Body Works - CO Bigelow Soothing Lip Buffer

I really like this lip buffer. I used to have Dr FeelGood's Buffer and Balm and was completely unimpressed with it so I swapped it. I like this buffer much much better. It exfoliates the lips very nicely. It also has a yummy peppermint scent. My lips feel very soft after I use this.
I'm not really wowed by too many mascara but I really like this one. I usually do like Avon product. This mascara has a very plaful spiral brush. I haven't tried it with out using an eye lash curler first but when I do use it it doesn't weight down my curl it actually enchances the curl somewhat. Also, it goes on very easily and smoothly, not too heavy or clumy at all. And it's such a great price!
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Perfectly Plum Lipgloss Palette

I really like Revlon's plum and burgandy shades this fall (2005). In the past I have been very appointed with Revlon's lip gloss palette's. They have felt gross, goopey and stickey. This one was much better. The colors are rich and creamy. Not at all sticky and go on very nicely. The colors go on sheer on the lips and look great. I definilty like this product. Fora shimmery effect I top these colors with Marc's Lip SLackers. Really cute combo.
Moisturizers -Clean & Clear - Oil-Free Dual Action Moisturizer

This moisturizer is so gross. It feels gross on my skin and made my skin look incredibly shiney. I only used it once so I don't know if it would clear up acne or not. It went right into the trash
Top/Base Coats -Orly - Orly Won't Chip- Polish Shield
MermaidKisses 7/14/2005 4:51:00 PM
I've tried several top coats and this is by far, my favorite. It definitly makes the nail polish color last longer without chipping. Of course, it does eventually chip but when it does, it's only a little bit of chip off the very topportion of the nail which is much less noticable than chipping without this top coat. Also, it does make the nail polish coat super shiney. I will definitly buy this again.
I can never buy enough red nail polish. I own about 20 bottles and this shade is my favorite. I always comeback to it. It's the perfet shade of red, not too bright, some of those bright reds are just scarey! And it's not too dark, just perfect! There's no shimmer which is a nice alternative. Rimmel's 60 seconds is my favorite line of nail polish. I love how fast it dries and the shades always look like the color in the bottle. I will buy this shade again and again and again.
Polishes -Rimmel - 60 Seconds Stars Nail Polish in Be A Star

I just adore Rimmel's Starts line. The colors are just perfect!! The color is a very cute hot pink/fuschia with a subtly silver shimmer. The color is very unique and cute! It dries super fast too. It only drawback is (like most nail polish) it chips but it's not so bad and I use a top coat anyway.
I'm not really a big fan of gloss in tubes, I like pots better, but I made an exception for this. And I'm glad I did! I really like this gloss. It goes on as a very subtle glossy super sheer barely there light pink. And it's super glossy. And I love the way it feels on my lips. Not sticky or gooepy, just perfect. After the gloss shine is gone, that subtle pink color remains for quite sometime. I love this gloss. I will buy it again and again and again and again if I can still find it!
I ordered the product off line and I hate trusting those online color swatches! When I first look at the color I thought it would look horrible on me. It's kind of a frosty lilac color with a little shimmer. I decided to try it anyway and I was very pleased!! The color is very very subtle. It's just lovely, subtly pink color with a lot of gloss and shimmer. It has a somewhat sticky feel but it's not too bad. I only really noticed a slight "plump" but I bought it more for the color than any plumping action anyway. Overall, I'm very please with this color! I would buy it again.
I don't have many break outs but when I do this product works very well at getting rid of them. It usually works in a day or two at the most. The thing I don't like about it is that it works against you skin instead of with it(like a more natural product would-vitamin e cream). It really drys my skin out. I much prefer a strong vitamin e cream.
Eyeliner -mark - On the Edge Hook Up Eyeliner - Cleo

I was completely unimpressed by this eyeliner. It goes on smooth enough but it flakes after a while and is too watery for my taste. I used it once and then threw it away. I was annoyed when someone gave it to me as a gift.
I love this product in Mauves as well as Wines. I love both very much. The colors are rich like lip stick. They colors also mix wonderfully to create new shades. The reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that I don't notice any real plumping going on and the colors don't last too long. Nonetheless, i would definitly buy it again because the colors are so perfect.
