Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Brambleberry Rose lip balm
Steph1820 3/5/2010 4:36:00 PM
I love the original Rosebud Salve, so when I saw this at Sephora I decided to try it because of the cute tin. At first I did not care for the smell...but I now agree with some others on here...it grows on you! I now love it, it smells like pie! And it looks very nice on. Love it!
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express Turbo Boost Mascara
Steph1820 2/9/2010 7:26:00 PM
I LOVE this mascara. I got it at Wal-Mart for about $6 I think, which is the first plus. The tube itself looks cute to me. The mascara makes my lashes look slightly curled even without a lash curler. The brush separates seemingly every single lash and I have not experienced ANY clumping whatsoever in the week I've been using this. Never any smudges under my eyes at the end of the day, not even when I went to go see a sad movie and cried did this run. And it is not the waterproof version. My lashes look great! I have tried many high-end mascaras and I've come to realize that mascara is one cosmetic that it usually doesn't seem to matter which price point you buy it at. The only HE mascara I've ever truly loved is Bourjois Pump Up the Volume. All in all, buy it!
Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
Steph1820 1/25/2010 7:39:00 PM
I only put a three for the price of this product because I have had it for so long that I don't even remember the price I paid for it! It's always been sitting around in my makeup bag, not really being used. The reason I finally decided to review it is because recently I found a new use for it that works wonders. It's fine as a cuticle cream, but I never really needed it for this purpose so I never reached for it. But lately I have been having a weird skin issue on my chin. I have oily skin everywhere on my face except for my chin area, where the skin flakes so badly and looks awful. No face lotion has worked on this area. Or it will work, but a couple hours later....it flakes obviously again. One day I decided to smear a little lemon butter cream on it and that area stayed smooth and pretty under my makeup all day! I have not experienced any breaking out issues with it so far, I figure it's because I'm putting it on a very dry area. I'm sure it would not work well on other, more oily areas of my face. I would repurchase...but I am positive I will never run out! A little goes a long way and the tin is kinda big. I like the slide-off top, tho others may not. Love it!
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Extra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads
Steph1820 12/27/2009 9:01:00 PM
I don't know why this product has such bad reviews. The pads were NOT dry, they were perfect. They were super lush and soft, and actually a little TOO big because they quickly took off my eye makeup, leaving a lot of unused pad. I love them!
I bought the "Holiday Pack" of these balms at Walgreens for exactly $9.99! No tax. I got three in the pack....Honeysuckle Honeydew, Summer Fruit, and Sweet Mint. Love them! Adorable packaging. Taste-wise, the Honeysuckle Honeydew is the best, followed by Sweet Mint, then Summer Fruits. They look high-end, and as others have said, cover both lips at the same time. Moisturizing, yet light and non-oily feeling or waxy. Love them! Since I have three, it will probably be a long time before I run out, but when I do I will probably repurchase!

One word: ew. Oily ladies, do not try.
Lip Treatments -Philosophy - Empowermint Lip Shine
Steph1820 3/25/2007 2:17:00 AM
Love it! I dont know why, but I believe this is better than the C.O. Bigelow similar mint glosses. HG!
Gels/Soaps -Johnson & Johnson - Johnson's Softwash Calming Body Wash
Steph1820 3/25/2007 2:07:00 AM
Freaking AWFUL. I bought this and after I did I read the reviews on here, too late. This horrendous crap dries out my skin and makes me itchy. It's disgusting. I know it's the wash's fault, because as soon as I quit using it, my skin felt great again. Ew, do not buy, will never EVER repurchase.
Eye Shadow -Neutrogena - Mineral Sheers For Eyes in Pebble
Steph1820 3/19/2007 12:34:00 AM
Love! Shimmery and pretty. The two colors go very well together and the packaging is pretty. Creases a little, but that's hard to avoid. Good buy!
Liquid -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Makeup
Steph1820 3/19/2007 12:32:00 AM
I like this foundation. At first, before I put it on, it seemed like it might be a little thick, but once I applied it I liked the consistentcy. It kept my face a little less oily than usual. Good product!
Hair Color -L'Oreal - Natural Match haircolor [DISCONTINUED]
Steph1820 10/19/2006 2:21:00 PM
I really don't understand why everyone else seems to have had a bad experience with this haircolor! I simply ADORE it. A few weeks ago a friend of mine did some at-home "lowlights" for me and they didn't turn out well. Dark blonde is apparently orange brown in the color world! Haha. Anyways, I went to Target and found this haircolor in "Light Ash Brown". Now, I've heard that you should stay away from colors with the word "ash" in them, but the color looked perfect. A lightish brown to get rid of my horried orange highlights. My natural color is somewhere between a really dirty blonde and a light brown, so I figured this would be good. So I go home to dye my hair (first time EVER dyeing my own hair, btw) and after I wash it out I see a beautiful medium brown shade, even from root to tip. I couldnt believe it. Usually I have blonde highlights in my light brown hair, so this was definately different. It looks natural; very brunette and sexy. I never want it to fade! I may keep dyeing my hair with this color for awhile when it starts to fade. I. LOVE. IT.
Cleansers -The Body Shop - Tea Tree Oil Foaming Face Wash
Steph1820 9/27/2005 4:57:00 PM
I LOVE this product. I have very acne-prone and oily skin, and NOTHING i have ever tried has helped besides this. I does not dry out my face at all, but yet it truley makes my face virtually shine-free all day. I bought this along with the face mask, which is also great, and the oil-absorbing sheets, but i noticed that i hardly ever need to use the sheets! This is amazing cosidering the oiliness of my skin. I'm already noticing a decrease in my breakouts, and it calms my skin. Im surprised that some people dont like this line, its a miracle to me. Oh, and the pepperminty smell of the wash does wonders to wake u up in the morning!
This eyeshadow is the love of my life. The first time i bought it i used the entire pan so quickly. I love how the little pans have the cute quotes on them too! This color is a very shimmery peachy-champagne-ish color. Some people say its too frosty, i disagree. I am a PPP, and its not to frosty on me even if i wear it alone as a wash. I love it and ill use it forever!
I adore this curler. It makes my lashes obnoxiously huge and curled. I use it with my Bourjois Pump Up The Volume mascara and it is perfection. My lashes are huge and look amazing. It wasnt that expensive (around $15) and is a definately worth every penny. And it comes with an extra pad thingie!
I see that this mascara got alot of bad reviews, which i hadnt seen before buying this. I just bought it on a whim at Sephora. But i love it!!!!! I use it with my Shiseido eyelash curler and the results are AMAZING. Great mascara. Not drying, very creamy. And cheap at $13! Would definately repurchase.
