Hair Removal -Unlisted Brand - Smooth Away hair removing pads

I don't understand why people are believing this product without a blade can stand up to thick coarse leg hair! I didn't buy it for that reason but yet bought it to remove facial hair. It burned my face very badly and now I have small scabs everywhere on my face. So yeah... WOW, face hair gone yeah but bad thick scarring...Way to go!!!!!!!.............................not.
I have been using this product for about 7 months now. It's funny because I still don't know if I'm in love with it. Sometimes I feel like I'm just buying it because the makeup artist recommended it since I have mild acne and since it's waterbase and free of oil and sillicone and paraben. I don't think it does anything for my face, for example I dont know if my foundation stays on longer, or smoothes out my pores. I honestly don't know. I'm very confused if I should stick with this product or get a new one. I think I'll try a new one as long as it's oil free. As far as sillicone and paraben goes, my skin doesn't care and is not affected at all by it.
I use stila natural finish foundation but when I go to the gym I use my fancy foundation so I decided to get a drug store foundation to use strictly when I go to the gym, but yeah. I bought it, it's hard to blend and the colors they sell are very limited since I'm very tanned and have yellow based skin, while most drug store foundations are made to suid pink warm skin tones. I got the darkest medium I could find and it's looks pinky white on my skin. I don't like the color but it'll do cuz afterall I just use it for the gym. But to use it for anyother purpose...umm, I don't know, you get what you pay for and if you have dark yellow skin like me, be prepared to have trouble with the colors. If it did have my perfect shade, I'd probably give this foundation a try instead of my high priced stila foundation. I'd save a ton of money. The blending is a pain, but all it takes is a little bit of work to get it to look flawless....
I LOVE this lipstick. I can't go out of the house without it. I am a huge fan of smokey eyes so I'm always wearing this lipstick to go with the look. I usually top this off with NYX natural lipgloss or one of Urban decays pocket rockets and it look fabulous! I'm NC42 in Mac shades and this does go pretty well with me even though it's a pretty vigrant mattish pale pink nude color. My friends beg me to put this on them when I do their makeup! I will buy over and over!!
I'm not histerical over this product. Dazzleglasses are a cute idea, but I don't see anything original. It's just a gloss with sparkles in it. I don't care for the fact that these dazzleglasses don't last long, even when they are pretty sticky. They are nice but I don't see how I would invest in every single color like I've seen others do.
I really like this color. It's very matte so it's tough to blend so becareful as it can become a little blotchy when applied all over the lid, but then again that's what you get with a matte shadow. Anyways, this is a multi-purpose color. You can darken pinks, greens, blues, whatever color you desire when you want. It's great for the crease, and great to smoke out the bottom lashline... I like it alot!
I love this color. It's so warm and compliments even brown tones. It's not too purple red, it even appears brown sometimes. It's very velvety and smooth, giving you the perfect fall shadow!

I adore my mac skinfinish! Such a perfect highlighter! It gives you such an amazing glow especially in summer. It can even give you a subtle waxy effect which gives an illusion that you have flawless, baby soft skin. No lie, everytime I wear this, people tell me that my skin is flawless and looks so glowly and healthy. Thanks! Love this product!
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

I love this eyeliner. It glides on effortlessly, it's very true to color, doesn't streak, and it doesn't dry out too fast. It is a little too creamy for my taste and will smudge a bit if you use quite a bit of it but it's very great and personally I think it's not a bad price for a pot of liner that'll last you forever. But yes, a little goes a long way, especially if you plan to use it for your waterline so just watch out.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide on eyeliner in bourbon

I didn't care for this liner in Zero but I did like this one. Okay so, If I really want a smokey brown look I'll smudge this liner with a brush to get that smokey effect. It's a very original brown color. Seriously. I honestly think it would be hard to dupe as far as color but this liner is just way too expensive for it's own good. Yet when I use this color for a certain look that I'm going for, it's great! But no, NOT worth the money even then...
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
Quickgirly04 11/10/2009 6:27:00 PM
I'm very suprised that this liner is a "24/7 eyeliner". It's way tooo creamy and smudge proof. I usually only use this liner if I want to go back and smudge the liner with my brush to get a smokey effect but other than that, I could never use this liner in place of liquid liner or if I'm doing a let's say, costume pin up type look. Anyways, it's ok. I would NEVER spend 17 dollars on this liner. NEVER. I could find a good eyeliner from Avon or Wal-Mart.
Everybody raved about this color, so naturally I had to get it. Ummmm, I have some mixed feelings on it. As far as quality, it's very thick and tough. It's not too creamy, which is good, and under shadows its good because it does make the shadows stick. As far as beauty and color, I'm sorry but it sucks big time. It's so sheer and dull that I can put even a simple beige complimentary shadow over this and it doesn't pop... at all...so I don't see what all the fuss was about. It's alright. I think the color looks prettier in the pot. It looks all metallic gold beige in the pot and on my eye nothing shows up although my shadows do stick really well to it. I don't know...... I might try some other paint pot colors.
Okay so, this concealer work wonders for me. I can't tell you how many spots and scars I have to cover on my face. When I use this, it's full coverage, and it stays on all day. It also has high SPF in it which is always good because eventually the sun not hitting those dark spots will eventually even out in your skin. I don't like that it's loaded with oils however. I left it in the car for about 30 minutues and came back and it had a layer of thick oil on the surface. IT was nasty I literally had to get a napkin to wipe. And plus it's small...very small and I know I'll run out of it soon. So yeah. Other than that, I like it alot:-)
Most people don't like the smell but to me it's completely sexy and ughhhh I just LOVE kissing my hubby with it on. It's slighty sweet in taste too, like buttery burnt sugar, hhhhmmmmm! I do get a little embarassed though when my older aged friends see the naked guy in my purse. I'm no pervert and did not buy the gloss for this reason, but I admit...it does make me laugh. It's a cute sexual idea for a makeup product. Blah blah, anyways...I LOVE the shine from the color and it's not sticky but it's reasonably thick for it to stay on for a good hour! These colors are extremely sexy and look even BETTER applied over a lipstick that compliments the gloss! My favorite is "Kirk" which is an extremely shiny nude gloss. It's not too strong in color, it look like light brown water on your lips if that makes sense. I use this over Mac's Blankety and it always makes my lips look kissable!
Okay, where do I begin??? This powder is great in that it lasts such a long time and it doesn't break too easy, at least not with my experience. It also doesn't add much pigment to your face so it's great for that reason. Bad things about it? Well? There's really nothing bad about it. I think the thing with why I DON'T care for it is because it didn't live up to it's name. It doesn't set your foundation well, so you shouldn't buy it for the purpose of setting your makeup. Buy it do touch up during the day. And I also don't like that I have to touch up so often, literally within 1-2 hours. My face isn't oily like it sounds. I get shiny like most average girls after 4 hours of walking or doing something, so I can't understand why this powder doesn't do well in controlling it for even 2 hours. I like it but would ONLY use it to touch up after I apply a VERY reliable setting powder!!! Do not buy to set your foundation. Your foundation will come off after a few hours! NOT GOOD.
