They say "love" is a strong word. But it dosn;t do justice compared to this awesome moisturizer. I found this moisturizer reduced my pore size, redness and made my skin clear, hydrated and soft. I am under 18, and even though my skin is naturally wrinkle free, I have no dout that it would help clear and reduce more marture skin's wrinkles and fine lines.The only downside is that it is stored in a tub, and I'm not so into the fact of dipping my fingers in the formula that will eventually gather bacteria. However, this minor glitch dosn't stop me from my favourite moisturizer. Bottom like, this moisturizer is fabulous; if you want claear, even, hydrated and more youthful skin, this moisturizer is right for you. Its love at first buy!
Pearly,smimmery and oh-so kissable! This soothing lip balm is faboulous for remoisturing lips with jojoba extract, and creates a slick pearly barrier from the harsh winter chills. The "kiss of shimmer" lip balm also creates a perfect natural looking nude lip (for the days where playin' up the eye makeup won't look overdone). My only concern is that it can feel to thick and chappy when overapplied, or when first opened. Other than this, get yo' shimmer on girls, and ecpierence the benifits of natural looking, frosty, smooth kissable lips!
Dove soap will never let you down. Infact is not even soap, its a moisturizing bar (1/4 moisturizer) so it leaves dry and flakey skin smooth and non-irratated! It cleans your skin fabulous and even takes off the most stubborn make-up. On the other hand... The Dove company is destroying rain forests; seeking the moisturizing ingredient "palm oil", in turn leaving 3rd world countries in the dust. Besides the high quality, well trusted soap, people are dying and rainforests are being ravenged. Please buy in moderation.
Styling Products -TRESemme - tres two extra hold hairspray
MyGainYourGloss 8/20/2011 11:51:00 AM
The perfect hairspray? "CHECK!" The fine mist holds your perfect hair firm, but without the CrUnChY hairspray texture we all are too firmiliar with...! I feel my hair solfter, shiner, and smoother compared to other hairsprays of the same hold! I love this! I recomend this for people with fine - thick hair and straight - curley, it's simply great! The price is reasonable, and the packaging is ideal, I find nothing wrong with this hair-smackin'-awesome-firm-holdin' hairspray!
I recently tried this at Shoppers Drug Mart and I was so suprised at how a-little-goes-a-long-way! I tried to hide my blue undereye circles with the yellow tone as directed, and it looeked pretty bad... However, my bestfriend has this and loves it! She uses it instead of foundation (just covering spots) and it totally looks great! And it has lasted a LONG time; with plenty to spare! It dosnt matter what your skin type is, it suits everyone... But the price dosn't, it's the only thing stopping me from getting it ($36.00). I got Bare Minirals cover/conceal/correct package for 13$ (and it came with TWO sets as bonus) and it does the job just fine. However, if you want it, GET IT dont bother wasting your cash on other things, treat yourself to something smooth and creamy (and I'm not talking about Starbucks, even though thats overpriced too) I'm sure you will find it useful, just dont use too much. Happy concealing!
Almay Pure Blands... A.K.A the "Oil Rig" That sits in my best friends make-up drawer... There is one super IMPORTANT message I want to tell you... DONT BUY THIS IF YOU HAVE ANY TRACE, HINT OR CLUE THAT YOU HAVE OILY SKIN! You will look the the B.P oil spill in process! It leaves an oily finish, but it would be great for people with dry skin for sure! I think this product would be better with skin that has yellow or brown untertones... NOT FOR PEACHY PEOPLE or you will look like Frostey The Tiger "IT'S not GRRREEEAT!" :) So make sure you have the right shade, and try it in the store, because the sticker isn't the right colour I have noticed! If you are looking for a good foundation I recomend Covergirl Natureluxe (carrys peachy undertones) , Revlon Photo Ready (for bronzed skin tones) and Fit Me (great for peachy to mahoganey!) Happy Browsing!
Do you have blackheads? Readness? Or fine lines? THIS IS FOR YOU! My best friend and I leave this on for HOURS (package says only leave on for 15 mins) but the longer you leave it on, the more oil and gunk it absorbs! ITS GREAT! When you take it off, blackheads, readness and fine lines will be reduced (with frequent use), you will LOVE IT! The best part in my opinion is the fact its so comfortable! You dont feel like you are wearing a face mask, unlike Freeman Feeling Beautyful Lemon Facial Mask... If you compare, you will notice the quality the few extra bucks can buy you. Happy Masking!
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Deep Cleansing Cream with Soap Bark and Chamomile
MyGainYourGloss 8/19/2011 11:51:00 PM
When I think of this clenser, the words "clean" "fresh" and "cooling" come to mind. When I first bought it I was suprised at the wounderful cooling effect! It made my pores feel cleen and my face brighter! I simply love it! Utill... I bought it over to my friends house, since she has hard water (water that isn't filtered with a soft water system) the soap didn't lather and it was extremly hard to remove! With hard water it leaves a think residue, so watch out, and make sure you have soft water! YOU WILL HATE THIS PRODUCT IF you have hard water! On the other hand, with soft water, you will LOVE IT! Happy clensing!
This foundation is a joke! If you want to get something cheaper with the same quality, go to some little kids birthday and smack your face right in the middle of Grandmas home-made cake... Because this foundation is CAKEY! It has full coverage, don't get me wrong, but it looks like YOU ARE WEARING FOUNDATION! It gives a matte finish, but that is at the expence of extremely cakey foundation! I wouldnt recomend this for my dog's poop-shoot because it's so horrible. My friend and I laugh about the time where I put a whole bunch on for fun, and how horrid it looked! For oily skin types... DO NOT TRY THIS! You will be looking at death-meets-candel when you see yourself melting it away! Gettin my point yet? This is a poor investment! Now go buy a nice cake and enjoy it... now THATS money well spent!
Looking for a perfect finish/dewy look/hevenly formula/clear polished skin? Look no further! Upsides: This foundation is creamy and blends seemlessly into your skin tone. I would say its a medium coverage, and a lightweight feel like no other! I recomend this for people with any skin type, even acne prone! The bottle is chic and modern which adds that personal touch. Also the shade selection has alot of warm undertones and streches into Mahogany tones, so if you have dark skin I think it will be a breeeeze to find your shade! Some downsides: The selection of tones isnt too "peachy" so if you have a pink undertone, it may be challenging to find your perf shade. Also the formula is a bit runny meaning it will absorb into aplication sponges or brushes too much and you may not get your desired look and waste alot of formula.
When I want to buy a dirt-cheap crappy blue-ish black piece of crap... I look not further than Almay Intense i-color! It always lets me down, the applicator mise well be a tree stump since it is so short and stubby! I think Almay should rename this product Intense i-diarrhea! It creates the PERFECT ugly-unappealing-lumpy-undefined line anyone could ever ask for! The only thing I can compare the line-quality to is if my guinea pig dragged her butt hole across my eyelid! ( I think that would make a better quality line!) So If you won the lottery and dont know what to spend your money on, you can give this a try... And when you find out how crappy it is you can use it as a tee to hold your goofball on your new private golf corse! But of coarse... that's not the case. Dont buy this, because you will have Unsatisfacton Guaranteed!
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner
MyGainYourGloss 8/5/2011 8:08:00 PM
Looking for a great eyeliner? Look no further! With it's light-weight formula and easy applicator it goes on smooth and easy! (so great for liquid eyeliner beginners!) I found that it goes on lightning-fast and creates an even and smooth dark fine line! (I couldn't ask for more in an eyeliner) The price is about $9.oo so it is a little more pricey than the average eyeliner... However I think it's worth every penny, so give it a try!
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - makeup dissolving facial cleansing wipes
MyGainYourGloss 7/27/2011 5:14:00 PM
Going on a trip or a weekend sleepover with your besties? These wipes are what you need! There portable and great for just throwing in your overpriced designer purse and running out the door. And H2o is not needed , so there is no water required to wash away residue... Also they are oil free so they wound leave a shine or dry out your skin like other alcohol-based clensing wipes. And most importantly every swipe of mascara and every smear of lipstick is G-O-N-E! Your face will be smoother and fresher than a babys bottom! But what they dont want to tell you is... Couch potato friendly! :D
Shampoo -Pantene - Fine Hair Solutions - Flat to Volume
MyGainYourGloss 7/27/2011 12:34:00 PM
When you think of fine hair, you don't amagine super dry skelp, or lifeless dull and dry hair! I wouldnt recomend this, because fine hair is usually more fragile then our thick-headed friends... Don't use this unless you want to be called Farmer John, because your hair will be dryer then a straw field! After I tryed this product (unfortunatly the whole bottle) I realised how harsh it is... The whole formula is designed to dry your skelp to get rid of acess oils that way your hair down, therefore making it appear "full of life" (much like the barren Saharra Desert!) So if you are looking for beautyful dry, flakey, harsh, dull "is-it-snowing-on-your-shoulders" look, it's perfect for you!
Clean, smooth, fresh skin... Sound firmiliar? Well you will find your skin feeling soft while using this scrub. However, make sure you don't over exfolate, that will make your oil glands over preduce, making your skin oily! So once a week will do you just fine. I recomend this product, I just cant live without it! Enjoy your new baby-bottom smooth skin!
