Polishes -Sephora - Sephora by OPI - It's Bouquet with Me
MissSniffs 12/30/2010 2:56:00 PM
Got this nail polish for Christmas and love it! It's a perfect sparkle new years colour. Three layers have to be applied to ensure that the nail is fully covered. One downside to the polish as the user below stated is it is EXTREMELY hard to get off, but does last a long time. No top coat is necessary for this nail polish for sure.
Love this mascara. My favourite thing about this is that it is waterproof but comes off with warm water. Love that I can get it all off without having to tug on my poor eyelashes. Price is good too. I have really long lashes so most mascara make them too long but I find this one can but use it more for volumizing. YOu have to be very sparse on the primer application of this otherwise it can look clumpy and spidery. Overall my HG mascara which I adddddore. The primer makes my eyelashes feel soft and may be my imagination, but less seem to fall out. Would highly recommend!
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

I'm a little confused why people are saying they prefer the Skindivia spray over this one.... because they are both by Skindivia... it's on the back of the box and bottle in little print it says UD by Skindivia. (Thought that was kind of interesting as I did not notice it when I first purchased it, but it's priced the same) I was excited to buy this thinking it would be then end to smeared make-up on those hot days and tried a few times. I did not see an improvements. I think the thing with this product is it reacts with different skins in different ways. Would totally recommened trying this before buying it. I ended up returing because I did not think it was worth $40 (after taxes Can.) I was going to try the Skindivia until I realized this is UD by Skindivia so... maybe I'll just try the Mac Fix plus.... I think this product is like some of the UD products a hit or miss. Which is a shame because I love some of their products.
Bronzers -New York Color - Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny 720

Love it!!! Packaging is cheap... but seriously for $4 and it is not too bad- think the mirror in it is adorable. Only annoying thing about the compact is it doesn't entirely close properly. If applied to heavily it can look orange and gross, but you can use the sponge to blend it out, after you have applied it with a brush. The sponge is kind of useless but kind of nice to have in the make up kit. It doesn't really work for conturing, it is better as an all-over bronzer. Love it & would definitely repurchase.
Eyeliner -Revlon - Colorstay Eyeliner in BlackBrown

Love this eyeliner. I previously purchased the UD 24/7 liner but could not get it to stay put on my lower lashline, which was very annoying considering it was twenty something dollars. Then went to Walmart and purchased this for less than half the price of the UD and was blown away. Love it- it is the only pencil liner that I can get to stay put. Plan to purchase this in navy and charcoal. Love the colour as I usually find black is too harsh. Would definitely repurchase.
Lip Gloss -NYX - Lipgloss with Mega Shine in Vanilla

The actual lipgloss is great... the colour was very deceiving. It looks like a pink nude in the tube, but is actually a gold metallic colour. Both my mom and I bought this. It looked awful on my medium skin tone, but on light skin tones looks stunning. Smells awesome too! Actual product good, the colour just majorly clashed with my skin tone.
I got this in two colours one was the green sparkle one the other one was called candlelight. Can't really complain because I bought them for a dollar. Much more of a novelty product.... good for party make-up, but definitely not everyday. The green one would look cute as St. Patrick makeup. Overall meh... they are alright, but much prefer the original ones and they are very deceiving as you think they have a colour to them but they don't its just clear with coloured glitter.
Misc Beauty Tools -Bare Escentuals - Well-Cared For Brush Conditioning Shampoo

This made all my brushes softer than they were when they were first bought. Is an amazing product, kind of on the pricey side, but none-the-less amazing. Definitely would re-purchase in a heart beat.
Did not like this eyeliner. It smudged a lot, on my waterline it was horrendous I had racoon eyes by the end of the evening. Overall, I would not recommend this eyeliner I would rather spend some extra money and by the UD 24/7 liner.
Foundations -Bare Escentuals - Get Started Kit in Medium

Overall I really liked the product. It was nice that the brushes were included with it. It does not provide amazing coverage, I tend to use a liquid concealer with it if I have something I really need to cover up. It looks very natural and does not irritate my skin. Considering I am allergic to sunscreen and this had a SPF I was quite nervous to try it as other foundations normally react with my skin, but it was great and did not react with my skin. Only thing I didn't like was that the products were small-sized and I did not know this before-hand. Would definitely buy this product again though!

This product reacted with my skin and made it very dry. I would not re-purchase it.
