Nice bronzer just not for me. Didn't really show up that much on my skintone nw20-25. Cute packing but not very sturdy considering its pretty much cardboard. Would be good for other people just not me :) I'm not much of a bronzer person anyway.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush

One the only Maybelline mascaras I dislike. This did absolutely nothing to my eyelashes. No volume, length, nothing. Very disappointed in this product and is a waste of money.
My first Mac blush, received in a swap, and I absolutely LOVE it! Its a perfect peach color with a sheer and natural look without the clown look. So gorgeous! Def a keeper! ;)
Just bought this gorgeous blush and I love it! Its much larger than the normal Nars blushes with the gold pattern that quickly disappears after usage. Its a beautiful highly pigmented coral pink color. Unlike other reviewers, theres no problem with it being too pigmented and going on too bright. I am nc20 and it looks great and gives a natural look. This will last a very very long time! <3
So in love with this candle! In my top two candle scents from CBV! This smells like a mix between clean and yummy. I absolutely love this unique scent, and I havent even smelled the Lush soap. This was my favorite scent until I recently got Blushing Peaches! Has to be the best scent in the entire world! Bathtime with Pooh and Blushing Peaches are a must try for anyone who loves candles! Blushing Peaches is a lovely blend of Peaches, strawberries and vanilla. But i smell peaches and roses :) Pros: Cute packaging Great throw Over 800 fragrances Cons: Kinda pricey Long processing time
Bronzers -New York Color - Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny 720

This is a great bronzer for the money you spend for it. I'm nw20 and it gives my skin a natural healthy glow, contours lightly, and adds a bit of color to your face. might need a little darker bronzer for contouring though. i dont use the brush thats provided, instead i use ecotools blush brush until i buy a contour brush. :) definently worth the few bucks! Will update on how it compares to Hoola soon.
Lotions/ Creams -Curel - Ultra Healing Daily Moisture Therapy Lotion
SamanthaJo19 5/30/2013 9:50:00 AM
Best lotion Ive used! Hard to find a lotion that isnt greasy, filmy, and keeps skin moisturized. Immediantly after applying it, it felt nongreasy and absorbed into my skin. Hours later my hands are still soft and moisturized. Have to wash my hands constantly at my new job, so they get dry pretty fast. Nothing worse than applying lotion and having to wipe the filmy grease off with towel afterwards. Total opposite with this. Def recommend this!!
Palettes -Sephora - Moonshadow Baked Palette In The Nude
SamanthaJo19 5/29/2013 12:56:00 PM
Worst eyeshadow palette Ive ever tried. Purely shimmer and no color or pigmentation. Even wet, it wasnt highly pigmented. Not worth even $5. The foiling on packaging comes off with ease. Would only recommend this to children.
Absolutely LOVE this product! The dark brown matches my brown eyebrows perfectly and lasts a long time. I use the angled brush to apply, blend with sponge thing, but dont use the tweezers. Tweezers included are cheap and wont grip any hair. The brush provided is a little short but works, will be getting a different brush. I only use the darker shade and occasionally the highlighter. Wish it had a wax to keep my brows in place. Will repurchase this!
Just used up a whole package and bought two more yesturday! I love these makeup remover wipes compared to others. I use these every night, and my skin has become clearer after using these nightly. It also removes ALL my makeup and is gentle enough to remove my eye makeup. Yes, it leaves your skin feeling wet and filmy but it dries up! And i apply my moisturizer after this and bp treatment. My skin feels so soft and smooth after this and not dry whatsoever. Will continue to repurchase these :)
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup
SamanthaJo19 5/7/2013 12:20:00 PM
Just bought this and used it once so far and im soooo in love with it!! My skin looks absolutely flawless, glowing, smooth, and just gorgeous. It doesnt feel cakey, just natural. I love my KvD lock it and BB creams, but this fdnt makes me look so much more healthy, glowing, and dewy. Its a buildable medium coverage and i use my sephora duo fibre stippling brush to leave a flawless airbrushed streakless look and then set with powder. Gorgeous! I will update again after usin g it longer and see how my skin reacts with it. <3 Update: Still liking this foundation, but i use it with my KvD lock-it fdnt because this fdnt is a tad dark and I like a little more coverage. Leaves a dewy finish, and definently needs set with powder or will look oily.
Beautiful color in the pot, but its quite sheer. A little too sheer for my likings. I prefer more pigmented eyeshadows. Its very creamy though, soft, and very blendable. I wanted to love it but couldnt due to pigmention.
Disappointed in this eyeshadow. I was hoping itd have more pigment, but its so sheer it looks like theres nothing on my eyes. Good base, but why buy a mac e/s just to cover it up?
Love love love this brush! Its everything i want in a brush. Thick, soft, and is well put together. Its amazing for the small price! I wouldnt trade this for any high end brush. Period. Since it is so thick it takes longer to dry after cleaning. But still a great brush!
Absolutely LOVE this product!! Heard a lot of people recommending Stridex to people on the board, so I decided to give it a try. I have mild acne, uneven skintone, and some little skin colored bumps. Immediately after using Stridex I noticed how clean and soft my skin felt. Acne started going away, and now I'll only have 1-3 pimples a day sometimes none! The pads also remove ALL my makeup and leaves none behind. I don't try my eye makeup though, you shouldn't use this near your eyes it'll burn. I use the pad all over my face, then let dry and apply a moisturizer and then my C&C benzoyl peroxide. Really recommend this to anyone with acne prone skin! Update: I only use this about once or twice a week. Didnt make a big difference in my skin after using daily. Couple times i wiped my eye makeup off with this and it was a big mistake! It made my eyelids burn and feel rubbed raw.
