Eyeliner -Victoria's Secret - Eye Liner / Smudge Tip - Extreme Black
MrsTefee 5/20/2013 10:10:00 PM
This is my FAVORITE eyeliner! I have had it a few months and still have over half of it left with almost daily use. It doesnt smudge on me at all and its VERY smooth and I love the smudgable tip! Also, this can be VERY cheap if you buy it with a $10 off coupon, it would only cost you 2-3 dollars, amazing (much cheaper than even drugstore brands)! I really like VS makeup and this is definitely a keeper!
Powder -Physicians Formula - CoverToxTen50 Wrinkle Therapy Face Powder
MrsTefee 5/20/2013 10:04:00 PM
I love this powder! Its very velvety and the color is great for very pale ladies like me (nc5-nc10). As usual though this comes with the dinky brush physician's formula makes so I always throw that away and I'll use a soft compact puff instead which fits nicely inside the compact (I dont know WHY PF still insists on making those dinky brushes, Ive never known anybody who likes them and they could stop including them and include a soft puff instead and bring the cost of the powder down a few dollars!!!!) Physician's formula still makes this, I found it in the drug store and its also available to buy online from their website! I will use this up and wear it everyday, its great over a tinted moisturizer, foundation or by itself! Love! PS: I cant really say if its good for wrinkles or not because im only 22 and dont have any, anyhow I still love this powder!
Eyeliner -Lancome - Le Stylo Waterproof Long Lasting eyeliner
MrsTefee 5/19/2013 4:26:00 PM
I love this eyeliner! I think its a very soft, blendable long lasting eyeliner. I HATE it when people rate eyeliners because they "dont last on the waterline" ....people, pencil eyeliners WILL NEVER WORK ON THE WATERLINE!!!! Thats not how they should be used!! This eyeliner is meant for the lash line and if used correctly it works fantastic. I apply it in my lower lash line and on my upper lash line and gently blend it with the little spongey tip and it looks amazing, very soft. It doesnt smudge on me at all afer all day either! I think my favorite eyeliners so far are this one and the khol eyeliner pencil (it also has a smudgy tip sponge on it) from victoria's secret. I like this one by lancome slightly more since its mechanical I never have to sharpen it, it always has a nice fine point.
Hair Color -Clairol - Natural Instincts Hair Color
MrsTefee 5/18/2013 2:53:00 PM
Clairol really did change the formula after they repackaged this hair dye and lets just say its NOT a good change. The color is darker and no longer vibrant ( I used to use sahara the lightest blonde shade) and comes out really brassy (like orange brassy!). Its HORRIBLE. I have switched to L'oreal healthy look (white chocolate shade) and its A MILLION times better and the color comes out almost 100% of what is expected from it. Sorry clairol but this was a FAIL and its too bad because I loved this color and used it for years.
Foundations -Cover Girl - Clean Whipped Creme Foundation
MrsTefee 5/16/2013 7:10:00 PM
I like it! Its very light and not oily or anything. Id say it offers light-medium coverage, but you can probably build it up (im never good at doing that though). I would suggest moisturizing well before applying this foundaiton though because it almost felt drying on my skin (i have dry skin naturally) and therefore might accentuate dry patches. I bought the lightest shade (305) and it matches me very well...im about an nc5-nc10 in mac so thats awesome! Its very hard to find foundations light enough for me. I also love how affordable this is!!! The consistency reminds me a bit of the maybelline mousse foundation (in the pot) although this covergirl one may be a tad bit more moist though. Good buy. I will use it up! *EDIT* After wearing this for a while I realized that this foundation oxidizes a shade darker on me after a few hours. I normally NEVER have this issue so im quite surprised...that being said the foundation becomes a shade or two TOO dark for my skin tone which is quite bothersome. I changed it to a "2" rating and I wont be buying again : ( Its too bad really.
Ive been shopping at VS for years ...ALL of my bra's are from VS because they are the only ones that fit me perfect and they are SUPER cute and great quality. I still have my first VS bra I ever got and it still looks brand new. I also get all my panties from vs from thongs to bikinis to boyshirts..they have never ripped or got holes, the only time I end up throwing them away is just because I had them for TOO long haha. I love their makeup and perfumes and lotions, great quality although I think their perfumes are overpriced (id rather buy chanel!) Ive never worn their clothing before so I cant review that.
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Big bold plumping lip gloss
MrsTefee 5/14/2013 1:17:00 AM
I was surprised at how big the applicator is but I actually really like it, it makes applying the lipgloss fast and easy (maybe because I have rather large/plump lips naturally though)! I have the pink one with a bit of shimmer and it has nice color pay off. I dont think it smells bad at all..it kind of has a faint fake vanilla smell (it reminds me of the mac lipglass smell actually!). I love the consistency, not too thick but thick enough that it will last on my lips! : )) PS: these dont really do any "plumping" they dont have any tingeling properties that ive had with other plumpers, I dont mind though, I like it anyways!
I used to use burts bees chapstick (honey one) but after trying out this one im totally addicted! I barely use up a chapstick completely and this one I did! I got a new one today! Very soft and moisturizing!
LOVE THIS! This is the 2013 limited edition lip and cheek palette from Sonia Kashuk at target. I just got this the other day and the shades are all very wearable, nice sheer color on lips and cheeks. Lasts all day and its not greasy or drying. On the back of the compact there are tiny holes under each pan so you can take them out if necessary. There is also no animal testing! I just hope that they make refills for this and a big shade selection, that would be awesome. Thanks sonia :)
Mascara -Wet 'n' Wild - MegaVolume Thickening Mascara
MrsTefee 5/1/2013 3:04:00 PM
Love it! It gives length and thickness to my lashes and the formula is not too wet and not too dry, its just right for me! I also love that its not expensive either. It doesnt smear or flake on me either.
I bought four of these eyeshadows for my custom compact and this is one of them. Ive been wanting to try these eyeshadows out because I like hte idea of having custom shades. I found this eyeshadow to be pretty underwhelming...its a nice creamy white color with some shimmer but thats about as far as it goes for me. It applies powdery and then creased after a few hours. Yea its cheap but I prefer better quality in my eyeshadows. I have a clinique duo eye shadow that was 15 bucks but its lasted me over 2 years and I use it almost every day!
I like em! They are just a soft powder puff! Just what I needed! I dont use any covergirl powders and these fit in my other random compacts just great. I normally get the studio brand (2 pack) but the store was out so I picked these up instead and I think I will continue to buy them, since they are a 3 pack its a better deal!
I love forever21! What I buy most here are items that I dont like paying a ton of money for...like basic layering tanks and basic long sleeves. I also get almost ALL of my dresses from forever21..they are great quality, trendy and fit great! Im very short (5'1) and their dresses are always very flattering on me...I think I have about 6 or 7 dresses made by forever 21. They have cute jewelry but very cheap and they break easily (ie: sometimes the stones fall out on earrings and necklaces). Ive also had good luck with their skinny jeans!
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm
MrsTefee 4/6/2013 12:46:00 AM
These arent glossy at all. They remind me of a crayon shaped cheap lipstick and they smell like waxy crayon! I thought I would be able to at least use them without a mirror like a regular lipbalm ...but they dont go on very evenly at all so you have to use a mirror with them. Just meh.
Pressed Powders -Neutrogena - Shine Control Pressed Powder
MrsTefee 3/21/2013 10:32:00 PM
This is just a regular translucent powder. It does control shine well BUT its very chunky and doesnt blend very well on my skin, making it feel dry and look flaky. Its also pretty expensive for a drugstore powder.. I wont buy again.
