Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types
MlleMarie 3/7/2013 2:26:00 PM
WORST PRODUCT I HAVE EVER USED!!!! I was given a sample a few weeks ago of the face wash and really enjoyed it, so I was curious about trying some more products from the line. I bought a sample kit from Sephora in the beginning of the week with their "when hope is not enough< Hope in a jar and their facewash. First off the cream smells absolutely disgusting, and the "fumes" from the lotion were burning my eyes after applying it. I woke up the next day to the absolute worst reaction I have ever had from any skin care. A sore, itchy red rash all over my face. It looks like I have sever poison ivy, and its very upsetting and is causing me to take time off work because of how intense and off putting the rash is all over. It could possibly be the the retinol cream in the kit that caused the reaction, but I am not prepared to risk fooling around and subjection my face to looking like a monstrosity again. Needless to say the intire kit is being return to Sephora once I look human again, and I am forever staying clear of Philosophy products!!!
I bought this years ago because my friends roommate wore it and it smelt really nice on her. That being said it didn't do the same for me and even now when I wear it (simply to use it up) i'm not that impressed. As other have said, its not very interesting and is very flat smelling. No depth at all to this scent and nothing special or particularly enticing about this fragrance. The bottle is attractive, but thats the only thing really going for it. Not worth the money in my opinion.
I found this mascara to be horrible! The initial application was great, and then five minutes later my eyelashes looked really wet, thin, and brittle. Aweful aweful aweful! I do however really like the purple colour of the container. lol
Mascara -Cover Girl - Cover Girl Professional Mascara (washable)
MlleMarie 8/18/2011 12:10:00 PM
There's a reason this mascara is getting such great reviews. I bought this in a whim looking for a black brown mascara and this was the only one without a gelly wand (which im not a fan of btw). This mascara is great!!!! It creates a curl in my lashes, thickens and lengthens my lashes. I like it because it creates natural yet made up lashes, washes off really easy, and isnt overly drying to my lashes. My new favorite!!!
I first purchased this product so I could get a really pretty bronze shimmer on my cheeks for a special occasion. Price wise, this product is expensive considering its a drugstore product. Secondly, this is waayyyy too shimmery to be worn on the cheeks. I like some shimmer but not where it looks like I have sparkles on my face. The lasting and pigment of this isn't worth the money either. Such a disappointment.
This lipstick is surprisingly alot more wearable than people seem to think. If you just dab it on, its perfectly fine to rock during the day. Ive wore this lipstick to work (Im a server) and if you keep the rest of your makeup simple then there shouldnt be a problem. At first when i bought it I was unsure where id wear it, but then played around and its very wearable. The formula is long wearing, and although it is a drier formula, I havnt had any issues. Like people have said, wear this colour with confidence and youll rock this lip. Its definiately becoming one of my favorites.
Moisturizers -Jamieson - Vitamin E 30 000 IU Rich Moisturizing Cream

I had such high expectations for this product, and was really excited to try it out once I bought it. What a mistake i made for applying this to my face and neck. The next day i had this huge, red bumpy rash all over my neck and ears and same on my jaw line. It took serveral days to go away and really hurt. i dismissed it being this product and thought it may have been something else. Then i tried it a couple weeks later and the exact same thing happened. Huge, red bumpy rash that hurt.
Ive been wanting to try a cream blush for awhile because I like the way they look, all natural and dewy. I ended up buying this at a makeup outlet they have here once ayear so I cant really ad anything regarding the price. At first I was really really hesitant to use it because it is VERY pigmented and easy to over due if you have a heavy hand. I suggest you try it out a few time sbefore going out in public. That being said...I am so impressed with this blush it has become my favorite! a few dabs on your cheeks and it gives you a healthy youthful fresh look that you cant help but feel awesome with.
Lip Treatments -Fusion Beauty - LipFusion Lip Plumping Gloss

Im not a lip gloss fan what so ever but I was looking for something to plump my lips which are on the smaller side. My moms friend gave this to me, and although it wont give you Huge lips...I absolutely love it! It gives your lips a nice natural plump and really moisturizes them. I even had my boyfriend comment on how plump my lips looked the next day after wearing this the day before. It smoothes out the lines and gives them a more youthful plump. Although it is expensive, if youre looking for a natural none drastic plump I suggest this!
Lotions/ Creams -St. Ives - Whipped Silk Body Moisturizer [DISCONTINUED]

After reading such great reviews on this cream, I decided to go and buy some for my extremely dry skin. Wow, This stuff SUCKS! I was expecting some moisturizing, but instead this stuff did absolutely nothing for my skin. It smelt kinda gross, and didn't work. Needless to say, I will NOT be repurchasing. I suggest y'all save your money and try something else.
I like this mascara alot, it really doesn't clump, and it makes my lashes really really nice looking. The only problem I have with this Mascara is that it's very drying for my lashes. It dries them out and they end up falling, due to being weak. Maybe i'm the only one whos had this problem, but I'm very particular about my lashes since they make or break your eyes. So.,...I'll save this mascara for important dates when I dont mind a few lost lashes. All in all, This mascara is cheap and makes your lashes sexy!
The first Escada purfume I ever smelt was th Sunsetkiss. i was in love with that, but could never afford it with my student budget. I bought this one,thinking it was going to be just as fab, but ti wasn't. It doesn't last at all! It fades so fast the only time you can smell it is when its just been spray. I'm so disapointed.

When I first smelt this at the Bay fragrance counter, I fell in love. It smelt exactly what I wanted...sweet and delious. I bought the large set and was as happy as a bird. I wore it the next day, and boy was I sniffing this bottle like mad. It was THAt good! Until I had it onme for a few hours. It turned into some cheap plastic, disgusting smell that I just wanted off of me. It turn out sickly sweet and beyond gross. I returned it and thank goodness.
Polishes -New York Color - Long Wearing Nail Enamel

This nailpolish is wonderful...for the toenails. I only own one colour, but I can tell that these are keepers. For myself, i've never found a nailpolish that doesn;t chip on my fingernails, so I can't really help on the whole-chipping blah blah. But these nailpolishes stay on your toenaisl FOREVER! I suggest you buy them for toepolish, you wont be disapointed.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Triple Mascara [DISCONTINUED]

I used to wear this 2 years ago when i was all about the dark lash/eyeliner look. Its a pretty darn good mascara now that i think about it. I look at some photos when I was wearing it and it looked great! But it was REALLY drying to my lashes and just like JoJoJoJo.. said it does make tons of eyelashes fall out. It's good for a special occasion event if you dont mind a couple lashes falling out..but I prefer Mabelline Full N'Soft..Now that stuff rocks!!
