Do not let the name brand fool you- maybe I got a bad eyeshadow, but my Carbon is EXTREMELY unpigmented. I have found countless other black matte shadows 1000x better than this one! It is not worth the money! You can find better ones at the drugstore! It hardly shows up on my eye, even with primer. It is definitely not a rich black- it's a sheer chalky black. Not repurchasing.
most AMAZING pressed powder out there!!!!! its about 20 us dollars, and worth every one!! the packagins is soooo pretty and it works so well!!! i bought the regular one (not the candelight one, which is shimmery) and LOVED it!!! it works so well! it works on ALL skin tones DEFINATELY repurshasing this!!! ***it comes with a foam puff aplicator, which works just fine, but i prefer to use a powder brush

I really like this product!!! the packaging is GORGEOUS and it is totally waterproof. however, it clumps a little bit...JUST a little and doesnt do annything for my lashes except darken them i have had drugstore products that have worked better. the wand applicstor is also HUGE so you really have to get used to it. if this werent 20 dollars (us dollars) i might reurchase but since it is so expensive, ill stick to my drugstore mascaras that work much better
Wowie! This shampoo was like love at first lather. It's AMAZING! It leaves my hair silky and smooth. No buildup, no NOTHING except beautiful, healthy hair, even though I straighten it everyday without using a heat protectant ( I know I should). I'm only giving it four lippies because I like my shampoo to be in a more colorful bottle and have a fun scent. Until I find a better (and more colourful) shampoo, definately repurchasing. :)
Misc Beauty Tools -Maybelline - Maybelline eyelash curler

Despite what other MUArs said, I really like this product. If you use if properly, it gives your lashes amazing and natural-looking curl. It wasn't expensive, either. I got it for about $5.50 (US dollars). It does NOT rip your eyelashes out. In fact, I found it to be very gentle. Hovever, like all eyelash curlers, it will rip them out if you use it when you have mascara on (i haven't actually tried it with this product, but I'm assuming so). It has replacement pads that are easy to find, unlike my previous curler. I LOVE it!
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express Turbo Boost Waterproof
PrincessHayden 8/10/2009 5:28:00 PM
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! You know those mascara advertisements in magazenes where the model's lashes are defined and volumous and...perfect? That's what my lashes looked like after only ONE COAT of this amazing product. I have a fair complexion, so I snagged this mascara in a dark brown (i'm not sure if that's the actual name of the color) and it looks beautiful. It glides onto my lashes really easily. It doesn't flake or smudge (even though it isn't the waterproof) and gave me incredible volume, considering I got the x3, as opposed to the x5 or x7. So here are the pros adn cons of this mascara: PROS: ~defines and volumizes ~doesn't clump my lashes ~no smudging or flaking ~1 coat can be used as a natural everyday look, while 3 coats can give you dramatic nighttime lashes ~holds curl ~deosn't leave my lashes feeling stiff and brittle CONS: ~There's always a little mascara at the tip of the wand, so i either have to wipe it off or be careful when applying it A little more information about Volum' Express Turbo Boost mascara... Wand: Average sized that comes to a slight point (I said SLIGHT) Price: Super cheap! Ranges from $8-10 (US dollars). Packaging: Dark navy blue with name of mascara in silver. Tube is somewhat bulky, but not extremely big and can still fit in even very tiny purses Formula: Does not have a strong scent and is not too watery or too thick I think this may become my new HG mascara, replacing my full n' soft by Maybelline.
Eye Shadow -New York Color - Eye 2 Eye Shadow Duo in Chocolate Kiss

Meh. It's okay. I love the colors, but they don't show up very well. I also prefer to use more than two colors, and have them all in the same place. Won't repurchase. I've used better.
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Liplicious- Pineapple Juice
PrincessHayden 8/2/2009 5:55:00 PM
I love Bath and Body Works so I recently decided to give their lipglosses a try. This was my second flavor of Liplicious lipgloss to but (and LOVE). It's very sheer, with a hint of shimmer adn a glossy finish. It has a yellow-brown sheen, making it like a nude gloss. It only cost $7.50! I would totally reccomend it, in addition to all of their other flavors.
I love OPI nail polish! They have so many colors ranging from pink to orange, classy to bold. They stay on a long time, especially when used with a top and base coat. The only downside of this brand is a chemical it contains that can discolor your nails. I usually stick with the polishes that do not contain it. This brand can be a little expensive, too. Over all, I love it, but I am just as happy with other brands.
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'n' Soft waterproof mascara (vitamin E)
PrincessHayden 8/2/2009 5:41:00 PM
This was my first-ever mascara. I really like it because it doesn't leave my lashes feeling stiff and brittle. I love the color it provides for my lashes. It made my lashes seem fuller, but not as much as I thought. It clumps a little bit and has a little flaking now and then. Overall, I love the way it makes my lashes look and feel all day long.
