Eyeliner -Clinique - Cream Shaper for Eyes - Chocolate Lustre

okay to be honest i was a little skeptical about buying this at first. I've owned many Clinique eyeshadows throughout my life and they've never been long lasting. Anyways i picked this up for about 14.50 at the duty free shop on my way to china because i was in desperate need of a brown liner. I LOVE THIS. the color is great, gorgeous brown but not too dark. its more natural than black. It applies like a dream, so smooth and creamy. eventhough it applies so creamy, the lasting power is amazing!!! and its easy to remove. I put this on at 8 am and it will last untill 10 pm (without UDPP!) i will def. repurchase.

love this color. I have tan skin so this is subtle yet goldeny bronze... it stays for about 7 hours on its own on my lids but with UDPP it stays for the whole day! i bought this at my local CCO and it was only 12 dollars! i love to wear this everyday! recommended.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
Thenaayang 6/6/2011 4:30:00 PM
I dont know why so many people use this product when it obviously does not work! its watery and barely even moisturizes my skin! It is overpriced and you can probably find drugstore moisturizers that do a WAY better job. I tried this product during the winter when i had pretty dry skin and it did nothing! i think it help for like a minute and then my skin flaked again. i finally went back to the basics and used Ponds dry skin cream which did the trick. if you are really interested in this product, i advise you to get a sample first to see if you like it, because its not worth your money if you dont....
This brush is so unbelievably soft! with the price it is definitely worth a try. the bristles are very densely packed and the dome/brush itself is quite big it is good for setting powder and PRESSED mineral foundation. Since the brush is so dense it is not good (IMO) for loose powders because it picks up too much product (ESPECIALLY pigmented blushes or easily caked on powders). Also the many times i have used this blush it has never shed! I love essence of beauty brushes, they are always great quality for a great price. Even though i have only seen them at CVS, i think they are easily available. THis brush is also great for travel since it is very short and easily portable. Love this!
So I bought this as a risk because it's not supposed to be good for dry skin, and it's not but all you need is a really good moisturizer. By surprise this foundation is now my go- to foundation! It works well with my skin, and on me the finish is natural not completely matte. It has medium coverage and has not broken me out. I love the mousse texture because it's so light and airy feeling. It lasts about 7 hours with powder which is not to good but it's okay. Doesn't smell and the package is kinda cute but a little unsanitary. The color ihave, medium 2.5 natural beige is a PERFECT match for my NC40 skin. I would recommend this but remember that everyones skin is different

okay i have tried SO many chapsticks and i ALWAYS go back to this one. it makes my lips supersoft for a long time and hydrated. I like the tingling feel too and that and doesnt have that strong of an odor like carmex. Also its easy to carry around and i'm never a fan of the potted lip treatments because they make my fingers dirty..over all i love this lip balm. its perfect!
okay so i got this foundation after i saw SOO many rave reviews about this... so the color i got is natural beige (im a NC40) and it looks grey on my face and this foundation doesnt even look dewy on my face. it looks cakey..:( i tried to apply this with a sponge and it doesnt look good on my face and i tried applying this with a flat top powder brush and i didnt like that either. this is a medium coverage foundation and doesnt last that long maybe 6-8 hours.. its not the best but i was expecting a lot more for this
clumpy clumpy clumpy! i really didnt like this mascara at all..the only thing i liked was the packaging
Liquid -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup SPF 20 (2009 formulation)
Thenaayang 8/24/2010 1:49:00 AM
ugh, i really tried to like this product but i cant. first of all when i applied it with a flat top kabuki brush it came out really cakey. it did give me a "glow"but almost to the point i looked oily and i dont even have that oily skin! it accentuated my dry spots and the only way i got it to look natural was with a damp sponge but then it sheered it out and the coverage wasnt good. It doesnt have a pump and its really runny with a wide top so its hard to control. lastly it broke me out! ughhh my skin was clearing up because i've been on differin and the first day i wore this foundation (for about 6 hours) i now have white heads all over (about 7-10)...i hate this foundation, healthy skin my butt.
pros: NONE Cons: -irritated my skin (i used it for six weeks hoping it would stop but it didnt and my face was like almost completely peeled off by the end of those six weeks) -packaging is teeny tiny -smells bad -did nothing for my acne -expensive ugh. waste of money... i finally sorta kinda cleared up my skin with differin and acne free from the drugstore works better than proactive and is way less irritating...
smudgy smudgy! this smudges like crazy and i dont even have oily lids or anything! it always gets below my eyes and fades. Pros Creamy application spongy smudger true color cons not long lasting at all smudges quickly
Powder -Maybelline - Mineral Power Powder Foundation

I didnt hate this product and i didnt like it either, i feel that it gives me a cakey coverage and looks unnatural at times. It rubbed right off and did not last a school day (but that just might be me because i dont set it or use a primer. it showed all my dry patches and flaked off. i recommend this to oily skinned people deffinetly. (oh and it didnt cause me to break out)
