I love this lip gloss. I've gotten so many compliments on it and every time my friends come over they want to use it. The color stays on for hours and hours. Even when I come home from work after 4 hours, it's still there. It's a light pink, like Nars Turkish Delight. Definitely recommend buying this.
Love love love! Good pigment. I apply this lipstick, and then a lipgloss that's either light pink or nude over it and it looks great. Definitely recommend buying this on ebay which is much cheaper than in the store.
This is a good foundation, goes on very smoothly and feels almost like there's nothing there, which is a major plus! The coverage is moderate, it doesn't cover up my acne marks very well but it's nothing a bit of concealer can't fix. I think the best thing about this foundation is definitely the fact that it's so light and hardly feels like you're wearing foundation at all. And also, the texture is AMAZING, it's a breeze to apply and it doesn't take long at all. I used to hate putting on foundation but now I don't mind it. I recommend this foundation.
Cleansers -Garnier - Skin Renew The Brusher Gel Cleanser

I have no idea how this could be getting any bad reviews at all! This is an amazing product, leaves your skin smooth for days. I don't even have to use it everyday for the effects to last. When I applied my foundation the next day, it was literally so smooth. Very very very good exfoliator! I didn't know what I was missing until I used this. The brush looks like it might be harsh, but it is actually very soft and at the same time still gets the job done (very well!). To get the gel out, you just have to turn it upside down and squeeze, then run water over the brusher and voila. If you put enough gel, it will get foamy when you rub it on your skin which I like :) Really recommend this product!
I guess the bottom line on this is that I wouldn't buy this foundation again. I've been using it for a couple months but the first time I used it I noticed it kind of sinks into my pores making them a lot more noticable (which my old foundation, Maybelline Dream Liquid Foundation didn't do). Also, it gives you a dewy finish which I knew of when I bought it, but it was a bit TOO dewy and it made my face look oily. The thing I like about this product though is the packaging. The overall look is really nice (looks expensive) and the pump is great, it makes things so much easier. That's something Revlon Colorstay doesn't have right now, but I heard they're gonna start making them with pumps soon! (: So anyways I'm gonna try Colorstay and see if that one works better than PhotoReady since I've read really good reviews about it.
Skincare - Face -Thayers - Thayer's Lemon Witch Hazel

I LOVE this witch hazel! I use it as a toner every morning. I don't have to wash my face in the morning, I just use this, and ever since I started doing using witch hazel in place of washing my face every morning, my acne has cleared up so much. It gives your face a really fresh feeling as well. Def recommend it.
Lip Treatments -New York Color - Lip Sliders Tinted Lip Balm ] ] [DISCONTINUED]
angelxox 5/18/2010 1:46:00 PM
This is the best lip balm I've used! Mine is in Sugar Coated (light pink) and it's amazing. I've always wanted a tinted lip balm and this is exactly what I wanted. Moisturizes your lips while making you look great! The only downside I could even mention would be that it has a strong scent but you get used to it and it goes away after a little bit. The packaging is so cute! I'm loving the slider. So easy to use. I bought a second one right after getting the first one because I knew I'd want it again. *EDIT: You don't get used to the scent. I've started using this lip balm less mostly because of the smell (that's how bad it is). It's really a strong scent and it's not pleasant at all. If the scent went away this product would be 5x better.
I LOVE this lip shine! It's amazing. I have it in a light pink. It gives a glow to your lips and the pigment is great. Would definitely buy again. *EDIT: The only thing about this gloss is that it's made in China and that it has bad chemicals in it! Maybe it's worth it to get one that's a few dollars more just so it's more healthy for you.
I'm using this mascara right now (on recommendation from a friend) and I love it! It definitely gave me length + volume + thickness. Doesn't clump, flake, or smudge. The packaging is amazing; bright orange is easy to spot in my makeup bag! I'd recommend this to anyone. However I've been hearing a lot of good things about L'Oreal Voluminous mascara so I'll be trying that next and will be writing a review on it as well. However Lash Blast is still an amazing mascara, so I say try both!
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - DUO eyelash adhesive
angelxox 4/3/2010 5:07:00 PM
I don't see why this is getting such mixed reviews. I've never had an problems with it. It's the best eyelash glue I've tried. I love it, it lasts all day and won't come off until you take it off. I've used others and they're nothing close to being as good as Duo. This is a must-have for false lash wearers!
This lipstick is great. It lasts long and has good color. It goes on very dry and makes your lips look chapped but it's nothing lip gloss can't fix. :) If you want your lip color to be nude like the lipstick, put a clear or nude colored lip gloss over it. This lipstick also works great as a base if you want to get the most accurate color of your lipgloss. *EDIT: I've been using this lipstick for well over a year now, and I've noticed that after an hour or two, your lips will get this weird dry stuff right on the opening of your mouth. It looks really strange. I know it's not just my lips reaction to it because my friends who have used it get the same thing. I've stopped using this lipstick because of that.
This mascara is good if you want your lashes to be lengthened and seperated. However the serperating part is where this mascara seems to go wrong. It makes it look like you have only 5 or so lashes that are all widely seperated from one another. Works great to lengthen, but it would be so much better without the seperating; unless that's what you're going for. But all in all, I wouldn't buy this product again. I've tried it twice and both times I've noticed the same results. The packaging is also not the best -- the wand is very flimsy and difficult to get back in the tube. But that's just a minor flaw I was able to overlook.
Pressed Powders -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Powder
angelxox 3/20/2010 9:52:00 PM
This is great for setting my foundation. I wouldn't recommend this for people with dry skin because it tends to bring that out. But it's good for people with oily skin. If your skin gets a little oily, you can just pat on this powder and it'll take care of the problem. :) It comes with a compact mirror and a sponge applicator so you can always use it on-the-go.
I love this mascara. It really gives you length and volume all in one. :)
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Blossoming Romance body splash

I don't see why this has such low ratings here. I love this scent! Sadly I think they discontinued it at VS. :/ I always get compliments from people (including guys) when I wear this perfume. It has a coconutty scent. It's somewhat strong though, so a spray or two will do.
