REE43 2/10/2013 10:18:00 AM
I was on the hunt for the perfect foundation! FOUND IT ..love this , was using revlon colorstay but this caught my eye cuz of primer being in it. This gives beautiful coverage for my almost 50 yr old skin. My other makeup goes beautifully over this without looking cakey. This stuff lasts without becoming oily through the day. Just love it
Styling Products -Garnier - Sleek & Shine Blow Dry Straightening Balm w/Argan Oil
REE43 11/22/2012 8:33:00 AM
I tried this as a pre blow dry lotion and am loving it! I have thinning hair and this adds volume and shine while blowdrying. It seems to help the style of your hair hold better and give a neater look to the shape of the hair. Really love this and a little goes a long way. It does speed up blow dry time as well.

OMG I am so excited about this product. I have very scarse barely there eyelashes from a thyroid problem I practically lost them all had thyroid cancer and they disappeared! Ive tried EVERY brand out there and am amazed that this inexpensive mascara brought my lashes back. It is magical it got the thinnest lashes and actually coated them to make it look like I have some lashes. I am so happy for this and I hope it sticks arounfd only found this at Kmart and have a feeling it is one of those brands that may disappear like Jane did LOVE THIS
Primer/ Corrector -New York Color - Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer
REE43 7/24/2012 8:11:00 PM
Ok so Ive tried all sorts of primers and gave this a shot cuz It was like two bucks. I like it a lot! I like that its just like putting a thin lotion on your face and absorbs quickly. No wax feeling, no balling up like other primers. There is a little glow to it but I dont see that once foundation is on. I do see a smoother more vibrant look to my makeup. The reviews arent too good but i really like it. Some other primers are just too greasy or thick this is light and non greasy.
Styling Products -Suave - Shaping Mousse with Extra Hold
REE43 7/24/2012 8:06:00 PM
Ive tried all the mousse there is to try! I have a hair thinning problem so I am trying anything for volume. This is so dirt cheap and I love the texture of it . Its really creamy & not crunchy in your hair. I use it before blow drying & before curling it. I love this stuff -who needs the expensive stuff? This is just as good. Lots of hold and volume VA VOOM!
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Jessica Simpson Fancy Nights
REE43 6/3/2012 6:55:00 PM
I got this on sale at a boutique store steinmart for 15.00 )- I love all the other Jessica fragrances so I wanted to try this, its definately a spicy, sexy mystical fragrance. The dry down is awesome very spicy and it reminds me of the old estee lauder youth dew my mom wore in the 70's . This makes you feel sexy & hippy-ish at the same time. I love the staying power and all her fragrances are great!
Moisturizers -Ponds - Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream
REE43 5/5/2012 9:30:00 AM
I got this as a sample size at Target in the trial size area. This is the best cream Ive used on my face in years , I never liked using a moisturizer before makeup because my skin would get too oily but this sinks right in. Its not too heavy and it makes my Loreal makeup base go on great. I use this before makeup and at night to sleep in and Ive seen a fresher softer look to my skin. Ive been using the little trial jar for months and picked up a spare, A little goes a long way and I LOVE the smell! Would like it in a body lotion.. Am very pleased with results.
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
REE43 4/21/2012 10:06:00 AM
I LOVE this! I ve tried so many primers thought the monistat was a great trick when I discovered that. I tried the Hard candy and thought I liked that but was still not getting the matte look I wanted. I was still getting oily throughout the day. The Loreal perfecting base is a different texture a little thicker and less oily. I use a moisturizer under it and only a little goes a long way. After putting on concealer and foundation , powder, my skin stays flawless looking with no oily look in a few hours. Ive only tried the sample jar at Walgreens but I will have to get the larger one. I think its a little expensive but I cant be without it. I think people need to remember a moisturized face works best before applying or it may be too dry for some.
Treatments (Eye) -Hard Candy - Eye'm tired depuffing eye serum
REE43 3/11/2012 10:58:00 AM
I was browsing the Hard Candy display at Walmart and spotted this wonderful product for only 5.00! Ive been on the hunt for a new undereye roller that depuffs and hated spending so much for the Garnier one I had used previously. I also used Biore in a litle bottle but that was discontinued. This is a new product that comes in a soft tube with a roller ball at the end. You have to unscrew the top a little to allow the product to flow better. I keep mine in the fridge as it feels so nice on the eye when you are tired. The serum feels light and non sticky and I think it did a good job of taking the puffiness away. I dont have dark circles so I cant say much on that. Im so glad I found this product as its a great buy. Hope it sticks around
I cannot believe this was 1.00 @ Walmart with other NYC mascaras I almost think the shelf tag was wrong. This is UNBELIEVABLE First Off the wand is very thin which I thought I wouldnt like but I think thats the trick to getting every lash and great coverage. It gives a great wide eye look and you can build coverage easily. I have tried them all and this has won my vote. Hey 1.00 what the heck. Love This !
I love this stuff! I was paying so much for MAC concealer for a small tube and it just wasnt worth it. I got the medium and its fine I wear it under Rimmel 24 hour foundation . This is a thicker formula and a little goes a long way. The coverage is amazing and I find it helps a lot with pore issues making them smaller looking. I will repurchase and hope this sticks arond a while.
I was at my wits end due to monthly breakout on my face in the same spot every month which left a terrible bump and red mark on my face. This was an odd thing it was a circle of skin that didnt heal and I tried cocoa butter, vitamin e. it was awful because no make up covered it and i was having anxiety over this horribly. I finally tried Bio Oil and its amazing it helped to heal it faster than other things and now I use this at night a couple drops thats it. Feels wonderful not a greasy feeling . I am 47 and this has made my skin look so good. I think this wins over any of those expensive beauty creams. Cant believe how it absorbs and is just such a nice feeling. I thought the bottle was small but I see it will last a long time with only a few drops needed. Try this and although some gave this negative reviews I love it and its worth a try !
Liquid -Rimmel - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation
REE43 8/25/2011 9:37:00 AM
I was searching for a long lasting foundation and have been using Revlon colorstay but wanted a smoother formula. I love this Rimmel and it really is long lasting, great coverage and you only need a little bit. It blends so nicely. Its been wicked humid this summer and this lasts through that great. I matched the color to my Revlon I was using by taking it next to the Revlon in the store. The shades do look odd in the store but they end up being fine. Love this and hope it sticks around.
I have been searching for a lipstick to replace my old favorite Hard Candy that was discontinued from WalMart. The hard candy shade I used was trust fund. Not sure why these are discontinued in the Hard Candy line but I loved them. So I purchased this at Kohls for 12.00 which is a little steep for a lipstick in my opinion but I was using a gift card. This is a shimmery peachy, bronze which ive been searching for it feels less greasy than other brands Ive tried. I like to layer this over a darker lip shade for a soft effect. There were tons of shades to choose from so hopefully I will like this brand.
Styling Products -Schwarzkopf - Osis+ Dust it mattifying powder
REE43 5/12/2011 9:33:00 PM
Well I really wanted to try this and I think its made for people with fine hair I have short thick hair and this is so fine that its hard to really sprinkle it on. It does seem to help with lift though so I do like it. It has a very strange texture just like dust but when rubbed in hair instant volume pretty cool. Got 2 be has a new product I will be looking forward to trying that is similair
