nice mascara- love the brush.. It wasn't bad nor was it good- but I don't think it did for my lashes what I thought it would do which was lengthen them. I think the formula was too dry for me.
This mascara was okay- i felt like i had to put a lot of it on to even see any difference. The brush is neat looking but I think I need a brush with more bristles and longer bristles as well. I have very short lashes and this didn't seem to do what I wanted.
Great at separating and lengthening but not so much for volume. The formula seemed a little dry but i do love the comb. .Similar to lash stylist.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Grund Tiger Reconstructor

I always make a note to check out what type of products my stylist has at her station and this was one of them. ( she's an independent stylist so she uses what she wants..) She had used this on my just washed hair along with Paul Mitchell skinny serum and my hair was GLORIOUS after the blowout!! Even when I don't "style/blow dry" my hair- it's still soft and shiny.. I use it every time I wash my hair which is every other day.. I have long highlighted AND colored hair so my hair is pretty damaged but I swear this stuff helps it look as healthy as possible.. My hair is definitely smoother and shinier..So worth it!!!
This is my go to brush for my brows and for using with cream/gel liners. It's the perfect firmness and applies just the right amount of product. I've tried plenty of other brow brushes and all were too thick especially for applying product to the brows.. This leaves a nice clean natural line at the end of the brows.. LOVE IT!! It also gives that real pretty feathery look with the cream/gel liners as well.
nice smell, the pigmentation is bleh..good shine but doesn't last very long..this is better to layer on top of a lipstick.. I bought shade 880 which is a nice shimmery coral- too bad it doesn't last. The wand is nice though and packs enough product..
LOVE this eyeliner:) great consistency and the product stays on.. Great true brown color as well.. I've also used this on my brows to shape and define them..I swear it works!! (use the 208 MAC eyebrow brush)
I got this mascara (sephora lash plumper formula) in the Madives set from Sephora.. The brush is great but the formula is really awful.. It took forever to dry and then ANY moisture caused the mascara to fall apart and left awful smudges under my eyes.. I gave 2 lippies since the brush was the only redeeming quality.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clarisonic - Pro Skincare Brush

I love my clarisonic!! Iíve been using clarisonic for the past 9 months and I have to say that I have noticed a nice improvement in my skin. My skin is clearer and brighter since Iíve started using it and Iím so glad that I bought it.. Clarisonic is supposed to prepare your skin so that the serums and products that you apply to your skin penetrate better. I know that itís super pricey but itís your skin and itís worth it!
I got the base coat as part of the set with the top coat- seems to do the job. I put two coats, then my polish and top it with 1 pass of the top coat. Seems to keep my nails from turning yellow when I do the dark colors.
I love this top coat- it adds an amazing shine to all my nail polishes and actually helps the polish not chip. I was using a sally hansen fast dry polish and it would chip after 2 days. So I added another coat of polish and add the seche top coat and it really has made a difference.. I only use 1 coat though.. I feel putting too many coats of anything on your nails will just make it easier to peel.. I love this stuff!
I always wear liquid liners and I have found MAC liquid last to be the best waterproof, cry proof, sweatproof, liquid liner out there. Yes they can be goopy when you take them out - but that's due to the formula which makes it last so long. Touch the tip of the brush to the rim of the container to take off the excess..And make sure you let it dry by keeping your eyes closed or looking down..( I fan myself to help it dry faster) I love the way they last all day into the evening.. I bartend part-time and this liner has lasted me all night long.. I have this in all the colors.. Definitely would recommend this!
Putting these liners on my eye was painful.. I wouldn't recommend any of these liners for anyone.. They were very dry - i did keep the brown one for my brows though. Seems to work fine for that.. ELF has other products that are great - stay away from the liners..
i have these liners in milk chocolate and twilight. I was looking for a good waterline/eyeliner pencil and this does a pretty good job of staying on for at least 8-9 hours.. ( which is all I really need) I was pleasantly surprised that it stayed on as well as it did. I would definitely buy more colors to add to my collection. For those with oilier skins- you may want to add a primer before you put this on for extra staying power.. ( not on your water line but underneath your eyes..)
Lip Gloss -Rimmel - Lasting Finish Kiss & Stay Lipgloss Dream On 700
ShannonS1207 8/13/2010 4:15:00 PM
the formula for this long wearing lipstick/lipgloss (Lasting Finish- Kiss and Stay) was sticky. The lipstick portion is supposed to dry on your lips and then you apply the gloss.. The lipstick just stayed sticky and the gloss didnt seem to really help.. I give two lippies since the color was nice and pretty pigmented..
