Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational in Blushing Brunette
aastew 4/3/2011 11:15:00 PM
Love this lipstick. If you are a brunette with blue eyes, this is the shade for you. I go through so many bad colors and I finally hit on one that looks great. It is very natural looking on your lips, and is a classy color. Not over done, but looks beautiful. I am hooked.
I like the mascara. It doesn't look the same as wearing false eyelashes but it does a pretty good job. I will buy again.
I LOVE this mascara. I have used other mascara's that have made my lashes thicker, but my main problem was smudging. I have yet to find a mascara that doesn't smudge. I'm not afraid to buy an expensive brand if it works. In my opinion there is nothing worse than raccoon eyes no matter how full your lashes are. This product DOES NOT SMUDGE!! It does an adequate job making my lashes look nice and at the end of the day there are no touch ups under my eyes-ever! When you apply it, it never smudges as well. The brushsd are made so that while you apply it, it doesn't touch your eye lid or under your eye. I love it. The only Con i can say is that it doesn't come off easy. But otherwise, no more expensive mascaras for me. I will stick with this one.
5 Stars!!!!!!! OK- I have ben using the most expensive products on my face to keep it clear and smooth for years. My budget changed and I finally broke down and bought this 99 cent box of baking soda. It has CHANGED my skin. My acne has gone and my skin looks beautiful. I mix a tiny amount of baking soda with water in the shower and lightly scrub my face. I then wash it off with my Nutragena skin cleanser. I do this 3 times a week. I won't comment on a product until I have been using it least a month. I have been going on 3 months and my acne is gone and my skin is radiant! You will save a load of money using this natural product. Try it. I guarantee you will love it!
Ok, I ran out of my Caudalie face scrub. Very expensive stuff but I have been using it forever and loved it. I found myself on a tighter budget and decided to try baking soda as a scrub. My conclusion: IT IS WONDERFUL!! I used it the first time w/ just water but it was a little hard to rinse off. So, you need to use it with your face soap/wash. Mix the soda a wash together and then scrub and your skin looks absolutely beautiful. I have to admit I was skeptical. I lOOOOOOve skin care products. But this one is a keeper. An A+ in my book
Very average mascara. Nothing to write home about. It has a nice dark black glossy color but doesn't really plump up my lashes. It works the same as a drug store brand. Don't spend alot of money on this stuff. It's drug store quality
I got this for my birthday present from Sephora. It is their newest eyeliner. If you put this on without any black liquid eyeliner it is a big disappointment. You can hardly see it. If you want to line the inside of your eyes, it wont do that either. But, if you use it over a black liquid eyeliner it makes your eyes look really nice. I have blue eyes and they really stand out with this color over the black. But all by itself it is pretty much a waste of money.
Gels/Soaps -Olay - Bar Soap for Extra Dry Skin with Shea Butter

Love this soap. It's great for the winter. You almost don't need to use any lotion after using this. The only con is, is that it uses up pretty fast. But when you buy soap with shea butter in it, that usually happens. I would highly recommend it. The smell is heavenly.
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - bioluxe hydrating shampoo
aastew 3/5/2010 10:18:00 AM
Great shampoo. I have tried everything on my course "horse hair" and nothing quite works like nexus products for me. But I was low on cash the other day and tried the bioluxe shampoo and conditioner at the CVS store. It works wonderful. I always wait about 3 weeks before writing a review because sometimes shampoo works well for me for about 2 weeks and then my hair starts looking like straw. This has turned out to be fantastic. I get compliments on my soft hair and the price is only 9.99. Highly recommend. I will now start saving money an buy bioluxe
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - Bioluxe hydrating conditioner
aastew 3/5/2010 10:15:00 AM
I bought this a CVS. They had a buy one get one free deal. I was skeptical because I have thick, dry, course curly hair and nothing works on it except Nexus products. I was short on cash this week and saw the buy one bottle for 9.99 and get the 2nd one free. I wasn't expecting much, but boy was I wrong. This conditioner and shampoo was amazing!! It made my hair soooo soft. The conditioner is heavy which is what I need and it really works well. The smell is nice and soft. I highly recommend you try it. I think you can only get it at CVS stores. You'll save alot of money on shampoo/conditioner and get a nice product. I am buying bioluxe from now on.
Styling Products -Sexy Hair Concepts - Curly Sexy Hair Curling Creme
aastew 3/3/2010 10:36:00 AM
I really like this product. I have very thick, fuzzy curly hair. I wanted something to enhance my curls, make them look soft and wanted my hair to feel soft. This did it. My hair looks healthy, which is hard to accomplish with my course hair; it feels so soft and the curls look beautiful. I have gotten many compliments on my hair since using this. I do agree that it is for hair shoulder length and longer. When I had short hair I loved the "short sexy hair". That is the best gel I have ever used. It is pricey but I will buy it again and again.
Treatments (Eye) -American Beauty - uplifting firming eye cream
aastew 10/6/2009 5:26:00 PM
I liked this product. I got it at Kohls. It was 20 bucks and worked well at moisterizing around my eyes and my makeup went on very smooth over it. For the money, this isn't a bad buy at all. In my opinion, no eye cream will give you a dramatic change. They are for keeping your eyes moisterized. This product I think does a great job of that.
Hair Color -Revlon - Frost & Glow Highlighting Kit
aastew 8/25/2009 5:22:00 PM
I have medium to dark brown hair and used the honey highlighter. It turned out beautiful. The CONS: My tool to pull my hair out through the holes broke; I couldn't see the back of my head and my 11 yr. old son had to pull the strands in the back; you get severe arm fatigue; the tool used to pull out the strands did a poor job and even hurt a little; it takes forever to pull out the strands; you're unsure if you have pulled out even pieces or not; don't stand over the powder and breathe when you pour it in...it makes you cough like crazy. the PROS: Beautiful results at a cheap price..so I will be buying again.
Treatments -Dr. Brandt - Blemishes No More Intensolution
aastew 8/3/2009 10:14:00 AM
This is an AMAZING product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I used to use Dr. Brandts poreless gel to keep my skin clear. After about 3 years the product stopped working, so I switched to Intensolution. It was a miracle find. My face cleared up within 3 days of use. The product says it to use it 2 times a day. I use it in the morning under my make up and that seems to be suffecient. It made dramatic improvements. The price is only 35 bucks for a big bottle. I highly recommend for those of you fighting adult acne. Worth every penny!
Won't buy this again. It is a nice foamy face wash but did nothing for my breakouts. My face has never looked worse as a matter of fact. I think it is super overpriced. It doesnt' dry out your skin. So, if you are looking for a nice face wash and don't have any acne problems, this could be for you if you have the money to put out. But for those of you fighting adult acne, it's a complete waste of money.
