Concealers -Collection 2000 - Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer
barbeep 10/5/2011 1:26:00 PM
This is a wonderful concealer! It's very moisturizing, the coverage is medium but buildable. It doesn't crease and it's perfect for my under-eye circles. It has a decent lasting power, I wish it lasted a bit longer tho (it lasts for about 5+ hours). It's my favorite drugstore concealer, its better than my Dior skin perfecting hydrating concealer, Shiseido concealer stick, YSL Anti-Cernes multi action concealer... Better than any high-end concealer that I tried. And I tried many. I'm using the shade deep and I'm MAC NC40 at the moment. I've already bought a new one!
I really like this foundation. The coverage is sheer and i don't think it's buildable. It blends like a dream. Staying power isn't the best, it lasts for about 4-5 hours. The finish is dewy and it's very hydrating. I'd recommend this foundation to anyone who has normal, dry or very dry skin and just needs a foundation that will even out his skin tone (it doesn't cover major imperfections). I'm using the shade 75 and I'm MAC NC35-37.I'd buy it again.
Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

This is one of the best mascaras I have ever used. It gave my lashes volume and length and it held the curl really well. However, it dried out quickly, in a month! I don't think it is worth the price because it dries out so fast!!!
This is one of the best concealers I have ever used. And I tried many, drugstore and high-end. It is: -creamy -quite long-lasting -the package has a mirror so it is great for on the go -it doesn't settle into my fine lines I use it only for my very dark under-eye circles. The left side is a lot less creamy, I don't use it very often.
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]

OMG! I have tried a few mascara bases, but this one is THE BEST!!! It separates my eyelashes, volumizes and lengthens them so well, they look fake after I apply my mascara. I am going to buy this over and over again! It is a bit pricey but totally worth it. HG!
Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - Tangle Teezer

I have thick, frizzy, curly hair. My hair is damaged and it breaks easily. This is why I had been using comb with natural hair before I bought Tangle Teezer. Tangle Teezer is much better because I am able to comb my hair without breakage and so easily. HG!!!
Concealers -Artdeco - Camouflage Cream (any color)
barbeep 7/20/2010 5:13:00 PM
I have tried many concealers, high-end and ArtDeco Camouflage Cream is one of the best ones out there. Pros: -great coverage -good staying power -decent shade selection -does not dry out my under-eye area -it is not too expensive (around 6-7€) -great for under-eye circles, discoloration and other imperfections Cons: -package -staying power could be better -it can crease a bit All in all, I think this one is one of the best concealers, I highly recommend you to try one.
No, no, no! This stain is horrible! It looks so good in the package but when you apply it on your cheeks, you look like Edward Cullen in a bad way. This blush has silver "glitter" (not shimmer). When you apply it on your face it looks good, but the staying power is not great at all and after the color washes of you look like a silver disco ball. I may use just a little bit as a base for pink blushes when I go out,but just (maybe) then. And it was so expensive. I do not recommend!!!!
Treatments -Phyto - Phytophanere Food Supplement for Hair and Nails

I paid a lot for this supplement (around 50$), however I have not noticed any significant hair/nail growth. I think I had better results taking just some much much cheaper Biotin/Vitamin B supplements.
I tried the L'Oreal felt tip eyeliner which looks like a dupe for Artliner and I honestly prefer L'Oreal. The application is easier, the saying power is better, it is more glossy and it is cheaper. Save yourself some money and buy L'Oreal.
The color is gorgeous, the perfect red. Application is perfect as well, this polish is not runny and one coat is enough. However, It chips off after a day, even if i wear a topcoat. And I hate that I leave red color marks on papers, tables, white doors when I wear Forever young.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
barbeep 4/30/2010 7:30:00 PM
Honestly, I would say do not believe the hype. This eyeliner is just ok, but for the price it should work much better. It goes on very smooth, the color intensity is pretty good but the staying power is not impressive and it smudges on my waterline after an hour. I think my waterline is more watery than the average persons waterline, maybe it is just me :). I will not buy this product again, I think I am going to try Milani.
Wow! I love my GHD. It heats up so fast, straightens my coarse frizzy wannabe curly hair so nicely and it makes it shiny. I love that I have to go through one section of my hair only once. It was not cheap, but it is totally worth the price. This is one of the few things that is cheaper in Europe, I paid only 138$ (original! I checked the code :)) on www.feelunique.com, including shipping.
I love love love this product. It blends like a dream and creates gorgeous dewy look (I have very dry skin). I do notice some sparkles, but they do not bother me because they are not that obvious. The coverage is medium but buildable. I have Revlon ColorStay as well, but I prefer PhotoReady, because it looks more natural, it is much easier to blend and it has a PUMP. The staying power of Revlon PhotoReady could be better, it lasts about 8 hours. All in all, I love this foundation and I would buy it again!
Oh my.... What was I thinking when I bought Flatliner. It smells awful, like some cheap alcohol, it makes my hair crunchy and dry. I would not buy this product again!!!
