Polishes -Unlisted Brand - Nails Inc - Magnetic Polishes

I'm blown away with how cool this product is! I painted my nail with the polish, and then held the magnet (that's attached to top of bottle) over my nail. And right before my eyes an awesome design appeared. Downside of the product is the cost $16.50 is a hard price to justify for nail polish. But the possibilities are so cool.

DIdn't do anything for me. Smells good at first, but fades fast. Hair felt dull.

Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Bronze Booster Pressed Bronzer - Med to Dark
Stephsayss0 10/19/2011 1:09:00 PM
This bronzer is a winner. Perfect golden color with pigment, but not too much. Brush in compact doesnít work well, but I use a skunk brush so that I can lightly color my whole face. Great product with long staying power.
Good color. A little too much sheen to go from lid to eybrow bone. But great as a highlighter. Pretty good lasting power.
Very pigmented. This worked well when i was tan over summer, but even then I had to be very very light with it. I ended up changing to Deep Throat for a slightly more peach pink rather than pink look.
Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand - Accutane (by prescription)

This product saved my life. Only someone who has had severe acne knows how difficult life can become. Over the corse of 4 years I did 3 separate treatments of Accutane. With great success in the first 2, but acne returned (not as bad as before). However since my 3rd treatment over 2 years ago I've been acne free. You have to go through a lot for this product, but it's worth every second of it. Only side effect I had was dry lips. Don't let the warnings scare you. It's only results of irresponsible people. This product changes lives.
Perfect color. I first tried Torrid but found it a bit too dark. Deep Throat however is a perfect flush look. A pretty pink/peach that looks natural and cute. Worked well on my skin while tan in summer, and looks better as my tan starts to fade. So I would suggest this for light to tan skinned girls. Any darker and youíll be applying a lot, to build color.
Worked ok. Nothing amazing. I think there are better deep conditioning treatments available. But if you need something fast and inexpensive, this is worth a shot.
After seeing thousands of reviews on Lash Blast I had to give it a try. I love the product and am already on my second tube. Keeps thickness, length and is almost impossible to get clumps. I use the one in the orange tube... Not sure what the purple tube version is and how it differs, but I might have to try it out.
This powder works wonders. I have a huge problem with oil, and find myself needing to blot by mid afternoon. With Mac Blot powder, I apply after my makeup in the morning and Iím set. Practically transparent, but last throughout the day. You use so little of the product that it will last forever. Iíve been using for over a month and havenít seen any issues with break outs, like I see with other MAC products. I plan to keep this one around.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Soothing Lip Balm

Love this product. The tin is cute, and usually opens with ease. It could be newer, but unlike the picture my gloss was pink with glitter. The pink adds the slightest color to your lips, and the glitter is not noticible. The tast is great, sweet mint. For the amount of product in the tin, the price is worth it. I like adding this over a lip stain for some shine, and to help ramp up the depth of color. Can be a little sticky, but not bad.
Lotions/ Creams -Gold Bond - Sheer Ribbons Body Lotion
Stephsayss0 10/19/2011 12:44:00 PM
I used the version with the pink ribbons after smelling the tester. Smell is amazing! Left my skin feeling very smooth, almost powdery. Rather pricy for a drug store lotion, but worth it. I'm not sue how i feel on the aerosol can, hard to control, but nice once you get the hang of it.
Very disappointed! Does nothing for oil, or body. Left my hair the exact same as before i sprayed. Smell is ok, very citrus. I would not recommend.
Powder -Merle Norman - Luxiva Purely Mineral Makeup
Stephsayss0 9/21/2011 11:40:00 AM
This is my daily foundation. As someone who suffered from Acne and 3 rounds of Accutane I am VERY cautious of what foundation goes on my face. Iíve been using this for over a year, and have just gone back to buy my second container. This hasnít made me break out at all since I started using a year ago (daily use). The coverage is great, can be light but can easily be layered for stronger coverage, without looking cakey. Yes itís a little more pricey, but when it last over a year with daily use I can not complain about the $35 I paid for it. Although it looks a bit shimmery in the container, does not appear that way on skin. The shimmer only helps to make a very natural glow. On warm days or going out at night I will use a bit of MAC Blot Powder to stop any possibly oiliness. I was considering Laura Mercier mineral foundation, but itís hard to stop a good thing like Merle Normans. Pros: Keeps skin clear/acne free Not cakey Covers well Good skin color match Perfect Cons: Bulky Package
