Lotions/ Creams -Yes To Carrots - C is Smooth Body Moisturizing Lotion
PterodactylStyle 11/29/2011 11:58:00 AM
This is a decent body lotion; I've used it on my face before as well; It smells great and it sinks into the skin very well. It's just not the best - Alba Very Emollient Body Lotion is my HG.
This stuff was pretty useless; It didn't really do much for my face, It was kind of the equivalent of just getting a normal body lotion and adding some water in it. It smells good but it just wasn't worth it. I used the whole bottle and I did like how the pump really emptied the entire bottle. I wasn't satisfied with the product though.
Cleansers -Yes To Carrots - Nourishing Daily Cream Facial Cleanser
PterodactylStyle 11/29/2011 11:48:00 AM
This stuff is really bad on my skin; It irritates me like no other. Everytime I try to use it it justmakes my skin sting and inflamed; The times I've tried to leave it on my skin for more than a few seconds, it's left me with enlarged pores, redness and patchiness. I guess I'll see how it works as a shaving cream but as a cleanser; It's a total waste! I do have very sensitive skin so I'm sure I'm just an exception but at least this stuff smells amazing. :/
Skincare - Body -Dr. Bronner's - Lavender Liquid Soap
PterodactylStyle 11/29/2011 11:24:00 AM
This is amazing. I'm a Vegan a major Girly-Girl, I'll be completely honest in saying it's very difficult to find high-quality and effective Vegan Beauty Products, Most soaps don't lather or clean, moisturize or smell good and are 3x as expensive with half the product. This isn't the case for Dr. Bronners; I use this stuff in the shower, bath, on my face, as shave-gel and as deodorant(It works better than all the other vegan deodorants I've tried). It's saved me a LOT of money because I can buy one bottle and use it for SO much. It's only about $10 for 16oz and you don't need a lot at all so it's a major value. It leaves my skin feeling so clean but doesn't strip it, it's great on my face (and my face is VERY moody) and it does keep me moisturized. I really feel good about giving my money to a really great company with ethics and principles I can respect. I'm really excited to try out other Dr. Bronners Products. :)
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - PAMELA ANDERSON MALIBU NIGHT PINK
PterodactylStyle 11/12/2011 12:29:00 AM
This reminds me a lot of Miss Dior Cherie, It has a really good staying power but if you're a Perfume Connoisseur you can obviously tell this is a "cheap" perfume, It has a lot more alcohol and is very overpowering. I purchased this simply because it IS Vegan and I felt that I really needed it in my collection of Vegan Beauty Products. This review is for the Pink Bottle, "Malibu Night".
Lips -Urban Decay - Urban Decay Lip Envy in Envious
PterodactylStyle 11/12/2011 12:22:00 AM
This is a great stain, it lasts forever, is very build-able and is in a really flattering, natural colour. You DEFINITELY need a Lip Gloss or Balm over this one though, it is very drying but works very well.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
PterodactylStyle 11/12/2011 12:19:00 AM
This is a really good eyeliner, I LOVE that it's high-quality and Vegan, glides on really well and lasts a long time. It doesn't really stay put in the Waterline and has more of a Gel-Like texture. It's good to have though.
This colour doesn't really do much for me, It sort of just sits on top of my skin, drowns out all colour to my eyes and doesn't do justice to any other prettier colours I use with it. There are much prettier browns/bronzes out there, Maybe it's not warm enough for my NC25 skin but it's not my favorite. :(
This looks really great on my skin, it's very blendable, has an excellent color-payoff and a good texture. It's perfect for a daytime look and really brings out my brown eyes. I love it!
This is a really great eyeshadow, it is very flattering on my NC25 Skin and it blends so well, the pigmentation is great and It's really pretty for a dramatic smokey eye or even for some colour in your lashline.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin
PterodactylStyle 11/12/2011 12:08:00 AM
This is a really good product, easy to blend, glides onto the skin and REALLY packs some serious lasting power onto your Eyeshadow. It's a brilliant investment because you get to use less Eyeshadow, take less time, etc. and the colour is very flattering. I used this in the Trial-Size with the wand and really like this more than MAC Paints which are VERY drying in comparison and much much harder to blend.
This is a beautiful colour, I'm NC25 with Dark Brown Eyes and It really opens up my eyes and blends so well. It's very pigmented and is a really well-rounded colour, I've used it as a Highlight on my cheeks and it makes my whole face light up.
Foundations -Urban Decay - Surreal Skin Mineral Makeup
PterodactylStyle 11/11/2011 11:29:00 PM
Ok, I gave my skin a long time to see if I reacted to this product as I've had some really bad luck with Mineral Makeup in the past and this seems to be very decent with my skin, I haven't broken out, gotten dry or anything negative after I take the makeup off which is great! (I've even slept in it) The coverage is really good, It blends in flawlessly on my skin, It doesn't oxidize which is quite rare for me in terms of Mineral Makeup and it lasts a very long time. I'm an NC25 and using the color Supernova. I'm not a HUGE fan of the lack of colours here, but Supernova seems to blend very well and this might be one of my favorite Mineral Foundations and I LOVE that it's Cruelty-Free and Vegan. I think I've found my HG Foundation. :)
Pressed Powders -Urban Decay - De-Slick Mattifying Powder
PterodactylStyle 11/11/2011 11:21:00 PM
This is a great product. It has long-lasting oil-control and is transparent. It just blends into my makeup or my bare skin without any chalkiness or amplifying any dryness in my skin, I have been a long time user of MAC's Blot Powder and I really like this a lot more. The packaging is great, too! I'd definitely buy it again, it's a little more expensive than MAC but I think it's worth it since I won't use it nearly as much as the Blot powder which I'd have to reapply every 2 hours or so, whereas with De-Slick I seem to never really *need* to reapply. I love it!
This is amazing stuff; I'm in my early 20's and never really thought about feminine maintenance until a friend of mine scolded me for my Vaginal Apathy; She insisted I buy this and I wish I had gotten it sooner; It's so soothing, refreshing and just leaves an overall clean feeling everywhere I wash, I've been using it on my face and have gotten some really good results with that, I've been using Morning Paradise and it's just an amazing smell. It rinses off easily with no residue or overbearing scent but just gives an overall great bathing experience.
