I bought this blush in peche tendre and it's a very nice pinky rose colour that gives a pretty natural flush to the cheeks. The colour payoff is pretty great as well. You only need a little and it shows up very well so it lasts a pretty long time. While the colour is pretty and the price is reasonable, the staying power is not that great. I actually found myslef having to reaply several times during the day. That fact aside I will be re-purchasing this because the price is pretty good :)
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Puree
amandaboop 6/8/2010 5:08:00 AM
I noticed that people who reviewed this product said that it's to light and does'nt moisturize at all. I do have to agree with them a little bit, however, I actually use this product just for my legs and the lightness is what I look for because I actually use a seperate lotion for my legs and another one for the rest of my body. The reason I use a seperate one for my legs is because when I wear pants I really don't like that heavy lotiony feel on my legs against the fabric, especially denim. I also really like this in the summer because it's very light and it does'nt feel gross in the heat. I know this is just me being weird. I love the smell of this lotion and, for me, I actually find that the scent lasts all day, however it does fade a bit. I also LOVE the packaging!!! It's so cute and pink! So overall I love this and it will definatley be my go-to LEG lotion! lol (Sorry for the rambling!)
This is a really nice coral pink blush and adds a really cute natural flush to your cheeks. For me it lasts my whole eight hour shift and then some although I think if you were to wear this for a night out you might have to re-apply it. I love the clear packaging that it comes in, it really makes it easy to find the colour you want and it just looks really cute. Great quality for just $6!!!!! You can either get it at Superstore or Loblaws in Canada :)
This is a great colour for a soft natural look. It's kind of a pinky tan colour and is perfect for fair skinned girls. The staying power is pretty good for a blush that only cost $6! I don't have to re-apply even after an 8 hour shift! I also love how it comes in clear packaging and the quality of the packaging is really good, the plastic is nice and thick.
I have this liner in Puro Amor and I love it! It goes on so smoothly and the brush is very easy to manage and control. It's a nice black, not to dark and not to light. The packaging is really nice too. I love how the handle part of the brush kind of has a good grip feel to it. Definatley makes it easier to hold onto the wand. The brush also makes it very easy to create a winged look to your liner. This is one of the best liquid liners I have tried so far :)
I am in LOVE with this lipglass! omg! First of all cremesheen glasses are my FAV mac lipglass! They are sooooo creamy and smooth and NON STICKY!!!! I just love them! Then they had to come out with this colour! Made me love them even more. It's a sort of dirty pinky nudey colour. This is a gloss I like to wear everyday and I actually wear it over Hue Lipstick by MAC. The pair looks so nice together! LOVES IT!
I was so excited to see that this was being re-promoted for the To the Beach collection!!! This was originally in the Fafi collection a couple years back and I loved it then and still love it!!! It's a great summer blush. Sort of a coral pink, very lovely! I bought a backup of this blush because I like it so much!

I love this lotion! I have been using it for quite some time now and I love the smell! The formulation is non greasy and leaves your skin feeling so nice and also keeps it moisturized throughout the day. I especiall love using this after my bath before I go to bed, the smell definatley helps me fall asleep. (I feel like such a baby! lol) I am defiantley going to keep buying this!
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
amandaboop 6/5/2010 2:46:00 AM
I was very dissapointed in this liner. I had heard such great reviews on it so I decided to give it a try and I found that it does'nt last at all. In fact it only last for about a half hour until I see it rubbing off starting at the outer corner of my eye! My Prestige liner was even better than this and it's 4 times less the price! (if that makes sense!) The only good thing is that it goes on very smoothly and is very creamy. I don't think I'll be buying this again....I'll stick to my Prestige!
Eye Shadow -NYX - Trio in 23 Sweet Lagoon Aqua and Ocean
amandaboop 6/5/2010 2:36:00 AM
This was my first NYX product ever! It was given to me for my b-day a few years ago and I keep re-buying it when it gets used up! Greens are my fav eyeshadow colours and I love a bold eye look so this just suites me perfectly! I use all the colours together and they look amazing! I don't find them at all chalky and the colour pay-off is great :)
OK so I have to admit, at first I totally hated these shadows!!! I originally bought the palette because I thought the colours would be trew to what they looked like in the package but when I swatched them at home they were all the same except for the brown and even then when you blend it out it's very similar to the rest of them! Then after I calmed down (lol j/k I was'nt THAT angry) I realized they would make great highlight colours....and they do! So I guess this was'nt a total waste of money. The reason I'm giving it four lippies is because it fooled me. lol.
Love this palette!!! First off, the packaging is soooo pretty! I love the feel of the outside of the package. Second, the colours are amazing! I love green shadows and the browns I use everyday for work. The quality and pigmentation of these shadows is amazing as well!!! It only takes one swipe of the finger to get full colour and they last aalllll day! I am for sure getting more of these palettes!
I own about 10 of these polishes and I love them all! They last so long without chipping, they don't take long to dry at all even with two coats and the colours are so fun and gorgeous! I always get compliments on my nail colour from people. The price on these is great too!!! I think I only payed $2.50 for each one! I kind of want to get all the colours now! lol
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo Eye Shadow Brush
amandaboop 6/4/2010 5:59:00 AM
I actually own two of these brushes. One for lighter colours and another one for darker colours. I think it's great, especially for packing eyeshadow onto the lid and also for highlighting. These do not shed at all and have kept their shape very nicely after several washes. They also look very nice with the bamboo handle and it makes me happy that I am supporting something that is both eco and animal friendly :)
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo Angled Eyeliner Brush
amandaboop 6/4/2010 5:51:00 AM
I love this brush! It's nice and thin so you can make the perfect line. I also love that it's eco friendly. The handle is made of bamboo and the ferrul is made of recycled material. It's also animal friendly because the hairs are synthetic. It does not shed at all. In all it's just a great brush and the price is not bad either.
