Lipstick -FLOWER Beauty - Kiss Stick High-Shine Lipstick-LS12 Sweet Peony

I love the feel of this on my lips,it feels moisturizing and I found the staying power to be incredible! I smoke(bad I know) and while it did wear it took hours even after I was eating,drinking etc..it stayed on! Some obvious wear but it was still there :) The packaging overall is not too bad,not as bad as the lip butters in this line but still a bit chunky and as the other poster said once you remove the label you no longer have the product name,as a solution I cut the shade name from the sticker and affixed it to the bottom of the tube. But that is a definite faux pas that needs to be tweaked.
I have these in cherry chiffon and wispy wisteria,I really like them,the formula does feel like a lip butter,it's moisturizing and somewhat sheer but not too sheer you could certainly build the color on these. I have already received a compliment while wearing the wispy wisteria :) I think that you get a decent amt. of product for the price and it was exactly what I expected from a lip butter. The staying power? Meh again what I expected,frequent re-application is needed. Packaging? OK here is where we fall short,imo it is chunky and redonkulous looking! This tiny lip butter surrounded by all this enormous plastic,it's way too much! It's awkward feeling and the cap has to be placed on correctly to snap it closed. Just too chunky and clunky for my taste. But the product inside I found very nice and creamy however the packaging would probably keep me from re-purchasing :(
I got this because I did want a bright coral! However the formula is awful :( it's too matte and dry,it settles into every line on my lips. On the upside I do love the color and plan on trying to use it over a clear balm or maybe adding a gloss on top. I don't mind the bulky packaging but,what I do mind is that the cap can only go on one way,not a deal breaker but,a bit inconvenient. This might be the right l/s for you if: 1. You like matte l/s 2. Your lips are not excessively dry 3. You like bright corals If not I say skip it!
I love these! I have 2 in peach blossom and forget-me-not,these feel amazing,when you touch them they feel a bit creamy but,when you apply them it feels like a silky powder that is easily blendable and buildable. I really like the color selection especially the peach blossom which comes off as a soft coral. The only thing I don't care for? The packaging :( both of mine have small gaps between the pan and plastic,so when you go to use it product gets wedged in the gap and that seems messy to me also for the amt. of product you are getting the packaging feels bulky but,that seems to be the trend in this line bulky=opulent,expensive? But I am giving it 5 stars because the product inside the packaging ROCKS!
Blush -FLOWER Beauty - Ready Set Glow! Blush/Bronzer duo - Beachy Keen
Ricksgirl32 4/6/2013 3:53:00 PM
This is an amazing product! The best drugstore blush/bronzer that I have ever used. Beautiful pigmentation,I have heard some reviewers refer to the texture as chalky but,I don't find this to be the case at all,I find it very soft and flattering on my olive-toned skin. I highly recommend this item and for under $10 it's a great buy! It does not contain a mirror and I know some ppl don't like that,I wasn't bothered by that since I never use those anyway and I love being able to see the product! And the magnetic closure is fabulous it gives it a more expensive feel. Very satisfied with this product and would re-purchase :)
I have these in kiss&tell,two little pigment jars one in a champagne color and the other a blue-green,they come in cute little shaker style bottles,you just uncap and shake the pigments out. Before I opened the package I could see some loose glitter floating around and clinging to the inside of the package :( these are pretty much an unpigmented glittery fall-out mess,while the shaker style bottles are cute that's all they have going for them. This is really an unusable product unless you just want glitter,when I tapped product out it had a pretty color but,as soon as I went to smooth it into a swatch the color disappeared and there was just glitter left. I can't speak on their staying power or if they work w/a primer since the hand test was enough to let me know I won't be putting these on my eyes. the stars are for the cute shaker style bottles which I liked. Don't waste your money on these though.
Really beautiful coral with a hint of golden shimmer. Usually I steer clear of bright colors and reds as they tend to make my olivey skin look sallow but,this shade is a real winner. I don't know I just love it,it makes me feel pretty :) it goes on smooth and mac lippies smell like cadbury mini eggs,how can you go wrong? I feel like this would work on most skin tones,so if like me you are afraid of bold colors I say just give it a shot!
Boy if the reviews for this aren't dead on! It's a flaky mess,I wouldn't even consider the wand a brush since there is just this weird curving thing w/no bristles. Just awful not only could I barely get any to apply w/the useless wand but,my product was chunky :( and lo and behold mere minutes after application there blue flecks under my eyes(my color is mr.right) really?!?! I renamed this product Mr.Wrong!! Even if you do use another brush w/this the product itself is still terrible. I do not recommend........
Why? Just why? Glitter in soap,why? I tried a tiny sliver of this on my hands tonight just to see if I liked it,after putting it on my hands I cannot imagine using this on my body :/ Haha it reminds me of this time I saw this lady walking into a mental health clinic and she was covered from head to toe in gold glitter,every time I see gold glitter I think of her! Back to the soap: it feels chunky of course,it wrapped itself around my cuticles and nails like some greasy,glittery monstrosity thank goodness I had some julep facial for hands nearby and managed to remove much of the glitter at the cost of a layer of skin and a glittering sink :( I wouldn't recommend this unless you're freaky like that and if you are I say to each his own.
I received a mini version of this from a friend,and the packaging is very cute and the brush design very cool looking however the product itself was not so great for me,my lashes are med-long length naturally curled,application was difficult,it was clumped and sparse in areas I found applying it to my lower lash line nearly impossible :( After application,one of my eyes immediately began watering and was irritated when I checked it in the mirror there was fibers under my eye,it had barely dried and was already flaking off. i immediately removed it but eye irritation continued for at least 30 mins.I had also noticed that 2 of my lashes fell out,whether it was the mascara or not I can't be sure. I do like the brush and may try it w/a diff mascara but would not purchase a full size of this.
Self Tanners -Unlisted Brand - COMODYNES Self-Tanning Towelettes

Awful,wretched,orangey are just a few words that come to mind when I think of these tanning towelettes :( I first received these in a beauty box last year,I thought what the hey let's try it out after all it was winter and I could use some color! The package says you see results in 3 hrs. I waited 3 hrs. 4 hrs. Nothing happened so I went to bed............ I woke up in the morning,went to the powder room,washed my hands,looked into the mirror EEEEKKKKKKKK,what the(expletive)!!!! My face looked like the great pumpkin :( It took 2 days to fade,and I don't have fair skin! If you have fair-med skin,then run,don't walk away from these towelettes!
Lip Treatments -Jouer - Lip Enhancer - Conditioning Lip Treatment
Ricksgirl32 8/14/2012 12:48:00 AM
I like this well enough,it's very moisturizing feeling. Lip enhancer? nah. It's clear and has a fresh scent and well it does most of what it's supposed to do :) I would probably not repurchase only because there are so many products out there that cost less and do pretty much the same thing.
Ok let me start by saying that I was a bit disappointed at how sheer this product is and the reason is this: It is very buildable however I feel that having to go over my lips and cheeks 3-4x's is using an awful lot of product! So maybe it won't last as long as I would like it to. On the plus side: I absolutely love this stain,the best key for using this is to let it completely dry before each re-application in order to get a deeper color. I adore that I can wear this in the car with my hair whipping around and not getting stuck to a gloss,it's absolutely perfect :) It's not glittery (yay) I love to carry it in my purse for touch ups on the go,feels like I have nothing at all on and it's just great. I would definitely recommend this product!
Moisturizers -Yes To Carrots - Yes To Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturizer
Ricksgirl32 8/14/2012 12:17:00 AM
I am a bit "MEH" about this product,let' s start with packaging shall we: I like the pump dispenser however it forms a plug(that bit that hardens at the end)and that's a pain to pick off my finger before use. The smell: It smells just like fresh cucumbers which sort of makes me feel like I am rubbing salad on my face lol but yeah it smells good and refreshing! The results: I have oily skin and if you do too I would not really recommend this,my skin built up oil faster using this :( if you do puchase this and have somewhat combination skin(like myself) oily t-zone and cheeks but,dry jawline and forehead I would recommend only applying this to your dry areas.
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil
Ricksgirl32 5/11/2012 3:14:00 AM
I have the shadow stash,and I absolutely love it!!! Especially clash,the rich vibrant blue is so gorgeous! I love that you can rub the heck out of it and it will not budge,I love to use them as eyeliners and they are so easy for me to use(and i usually have trouble getting a straight line)they really do GLIDE on.no pulling your eyelids and ending up with a dotted line lol.IMO these are worth every penny especially if you have a hard time applying liners like me,and also for the array of gorgeous colors that I think would work on anyone. Highly recommend grabbing these up :)
