I wish this was more melty and less hard to get a substantial amount on my finger to put on my lips. I like the texture, yes, it is thin and greasy, but not as greasy as some. lasting power is zip. smell is perfect, not strong [i have lemon-lime]. this moisturizes very well.
Nothing too special, but not too shabby either. I use it on my ends mostly because that is where my hair is in need of repair.. my hair was softer but i didn't notice any extra shine. not greasy for me, maybe everyone is using too much.. or i'm using too little, who knows. the smell is so amazing though- citrus-y with an extra kick of something that i can't put my finger on.
Moisturizers -Burt's Bees - Carrot Nutritive Day Creme

ahh hey I LIKE the smell of this! my dad was like "who's playing with playdough?" but i don't mind the smell at all ::shrug:: this is a very thick cream with a smooth texture, it reminds me of pudding. it is very moisturizing so i only use it at night before i go to bed. when i wake up, my skin is soo soft. The first couple times I used this, i got some tiny bumps on my forehead but they disappeared quickly and I haven't had a problem since.
I have earth. both are such beautiful colors. earth [the large circle] is a frosty [but not as much as Stila e/s in kitten]bronze taupe. Terre, the half circle, is a shimmery peachy gold with gold micromicroglitter. the quality is great!! lasted all day, no creasing. This $16.50, which isn't TOO bad for a duo but I don't think I would buy for that price unless the colors were amazing. I got this on sale, for $5.50 XD UPDATE: the smaller disc is identical to Stila's SUN e/s. I found the textures/quality are also very similar. 3 cheers for good e/s on sale.
such a pretty color :) sheer fuschia with iridescent green-y blue glitter. i love the scent - cinnamon.. but not too strong. texture is slightly sticky but thick and not annoying. Lasting power is alright - but def. not bad. only complaint i have is the glitter tends to get a little grainy after some of the gloss wears off - i can deal though.
I have this in orchid, a shimmery medium purple with blue tones. it was only $3! It's awesome. Very long lasting, pretty color, etc. I wish I got more colors - they had black and dark brown.
I'm very suprised with the quality of this . . . normally, the only reason I buy Bonne Bell glosses is for the flavor, because the lasting power is usually bad. I have the Mint flavor, clear. The taste is a sugary mint. The texture is thick but not sticky. I'm guessing it is a imitation of UD's XXX glosses, because the package and smell are similar. Anyway, this is a great buy for 3 bucks! :D
This is one of my favorite eyeliners! I have the color 'Jungle Green', which is just a, uh, jungle green. This lasted ALL day, and it was even there faintly after I washed my face at night. The best thing about these eyeliners are that they are so smudgable, imo. too bad I LOST this =( I wanna pick up the black one, 'Black Magic'. Rimmel keeps impressing me with the quality of their products!!
This is an okay product, IMO. The color is unique [light fuschia infused with muy shimmer. On my eyes, this doesn't last very long. It does look really pretty mixed with clear lipgloss, though! When I apply it wet on my eyelids, the color is opaque and looks metallic. Nice look for clubbing, if you are into that.
This is my favorite lipstick, aside from Shine Delice`s. I have 'Bahama Mama' and altho I can only pull off this color [coral-y red i guess]when I'm tan, its so pretty. The lasting power is great for 3 bucks ... and the scent is yummy - like a slightly sweet mint. gotta luv it
Awh what a nice lipgloss! I'm very glad that this is good because i dont like to spend that much $$ on makeup, and this was on the expensive side [$13, i believe?]. I have this in 'Sweetie'. it is a semi-frosty nude-y pink. Very cute color, but frosty colors dont work so well on me so I apply this very sheerly or blot. At first i was disappointed, because in Sephora it looked like a true shimmery nude. the staying power is pretty good, and this is thick and slightly sticky, but I don't mind. The smell [cakebatter] is yummy but not overpowering, and it gives awesome shine! Also, i love the shape of a tube.. it's rounded. I have also tried my friend's 'oxygen'- clear with glitter. it was horribly grainy! bllech. I suggest staying away from the excessively shimmery/glittery shades :)
Blech!! I bought the barbie pink color - Strawberry ice, i think it is called. First off, the color was just horrible for me. I bought this jokingly with my friend in the drugstore; for under $2, i had to give it a try. Second, it seemed to accentuate [sp?] the dry spots on my lips. Also, the gloss oozed out when i put the cap back on and got all over my other lipglosses =( On the other hand, it is very pigmented + has relatively good staying power for its price. I didn't mind the smell either. i wanna give the clear one a try ...
Moisturizers -L'Oreal - hydrafresh moisturizer (oily skin)
XOXOLexi 5/23/2002 8:01:00 PM
This is by far my fave moisturizer. I have oily skin and I can honestly say that this controls some greasiness that people with oily skin get when they use moisturizer most of the time. It makes my skin look kinda dewy, and the scent is so fresh and light. I use it in conjunction with the face wash for oily-normal skin and my skin is looking great.
This spray is supposed to be used to "scrunching" your hair.. you know, trying to achieve the tousled wavy look. I have wavy/straight hair and normally it is hard to do that. This product if the only thing [that i've tried] that works for scrunching! It does feel sticky at first but when it dries, my hair feels [for the most part] natural. The smell is very delish, but MUCH too strong! Its like a cherry jolly rancher crossed with a grape one. When I run out, i will definitely repurchase this - but in the Unscented form! =]
Such a great drugstore lipgloss for the price! I have it in Cappuchino [pinky deep nude], Vanilla Swirl [light light frosty nude?], and Mocha Mousse [kinda browny mauveish..mine is really old. I like them; basically what every1 else has been saying: that they have nice texture, color, lasting power is OK, etc. :]
