Primer/ Corrector -Rimmel - Fix and Perfect Foundation Primer
Zanita27 3/23/2013 10:49:00 AM
While i like rimmel products, this i dont. Im used to a clear primer, this was tinted a beigey orange like color. I figured id still give it a try. Well it evened out my warm complexion and blended to where it was visible. However at the end of the day i developed pimples on my chin. Nothing in my skincare routine changed but this. This stuff is a pass and may have find another drugstore brand that works.
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder - Silky Beige

This is a wonderful basic powder. This color which is a warm yellow matches my warm light skin perfectly. It gets rid of the shine and doesnt leave a powdery residue. Ill get this wonderful product again.
Mascara -100 Percent Pure - Fruit Pigmented ultra lengthening mascara
Zanita27 2/23/2013 1:21:00 AM
This stuff is very basic for a mascara. i say this because i have the typical stubby asian lashes, and this lengthens my lashes a bit. Of course its not gonna give me super lashes but it does the job. My biggest gripes are it flakes and smudges easily. I dont have to rub my eyes for me to get black streaks under my eyes. so big disappointment. Will have to try another mascara that doesnt do this.
Scrubs -100 Percent Pure - cherry honey face scrub
Zanita27 2/23/2013 1:12:00 AM
While i love 100 percent pure, i did not like this product. It smells wonderful of honey and cherries, but not good for normal to oily skin. This scrubs nicely with the jojoba beads and doesnt scratch the skin, but it clogged me up. I had whiteheads all around the nose and a flim on my face. Figures because honey draws in moisture. This is much better for the dry ladies and not the oily ones.
Lotions/ Creams -100 Percent Pure - Strawberry Nourishing Body Cream
Zanita27 2/23/2013 1:00:00 AM
This smells like strawberties and yeah a little green, but its not the typical synthetic strawberry smell. The cream is a bit thicker than your typical lotion which is great. I need something thicker in the drier months. Yes the shelf life is short however, i have a lavender body cream that is past the 6 months and more a year old. The smell hasnt changed nor the color. I think this stuff is wonderful and cant wait to try others.
Meh. Nothing special about this balm. Its really oily and doesnt have much staying power but a few minutes. I would prefer it a little waxier so it lasts a bit longer. It doesnt moisturize much considering it goes away so quickly. I do like the little tin and the cocoa butter, almond oil smell. But that is all thats going for it. I was expecting some good from this brand because of the popularity. Disappointment for me, and right now im just using this for my cuticles.
This stuff is best used when your skin is wet or slightly damp. It locks in that moisture and leaves a pretty sheen on your skin. The scent is also comforting because it reminds me of when my little girl would get this stuff put on. This is nice stuff and may try other scents.
These are great cheap little pigments. They cost just under 5 dollars and i find they are pigmented for a drugstore brand. i have this in cafe au lait which is a pretty shimmery brown taupe. I think the other colors are pretty but some i just cant wear. I have the old packaging which doesnt have a sifter but the new ones do. Mine can get just a little messy at times. Other than that these are pretty comparable to mac, and cheaper though you get less product. I would love to buy more of these. Just wish i lived by a rite aid.
Lipstick -Clinique - Long Last Lipstick - Twilight Nude
Zanita27 1/30/2013 1:26:00 AM
Very pretty wine, berry color with shimmer. I like how it compliments my warm light skin and is kind of a ylbb color. only gripe is that i tend to see mostly shimmer than the color. Maybe i got a bad batch, but i still like this lipstick.
I love stila eyeshadows and puppy is my everyday nude. Its a matte, beigey brown that i use as a lid color. Its pigmented, but not as pigmented as their shimmery shadows are. I love pairing this up with wheat as the highlighter, and coco or golight for the crease
This is a very pretty, brownish peach color. Ive been using this more lately but still love my peony. this goes on like a wash of color but if you like, you can intensify. This really complements my warm light skin, and looks natural like a slight flush. I use this more in colder weather because my skin tends to get dry. I would love to try the other colors out.
Deodorants -Suave - 24-Hour Invisible Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant
Zanita27 1/25/2013 8:08:00 PM
I have this in i think called eternal sunshine or other. Aside from the scent, this stuff keeps me dry. From working out for 1.5 hrs, and constant running, i dont get the least biy moist. Also, when applied, boy can i smell my deodorant which is great. It keeps me from getting really stinky. Its suprising that.such a cheap deodorant works so.well. I cant wait to try the other scents out.
Lip Treatments -Blistex - Moisture Melt Lip Protectant
Zanita27 1/25/2013 6:29:00 AM
Ehh... This stuff is really nothing special. Its creamy which is ok, but i prefer a slightly waxy balm which stays on longer. for me this smells a little like toothpaste which is yuck to me. It moisturizes ok, so pretty average. i prefer the stick then the squeeze tube.
I am on the drugstore perfume fix and glad i picked this up. This might not smell quite like the vintage perfume, but nevertheless it is wonderful. The initial scent is citrusy and slightly green. Then the draw down is a slightly powdery, faintly spicy floral. To me its beautiful and elegant, not cheap and cheeky. The sillage is moderate and lasts longer than your typical drugstore scent. This green lovely will have a place next to my other drugstore favorite, tourjois moi.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - dana love's soft jasmin
Zanita27 1/22/2013 1:31:00 PM
My first experience with this was back in high school. Its the same small spray bottle with the pretty purple top. It's a light jasmine with hints of musk which makes it pretty and soft. This is not very strong, or is it cheap smelling as well. The sillage is a little weak, but this is more intended for a younger female than one who is older in age. This doesnt last very long, but being that its so cheap, its no big deal it spritz again throughout the day. I am so glad that Dana brought this back, as it was discontinued for a number of years.
