Styling Products -Clairol - Herbal Essences Body Envy Hairspray

I spent time styling my hair and this ruined it all. My hair instantly became crunchy after using this spray! It doesn't matter how good it smells if the waves in my hair cannot flow like they're suppose to. This will make your hair look so unnatural!
Let's say...I will never use other cotton pads ever again! I have been using these for a very long time. These are so soft and gentle on the eyes. It soaks up just the right amount of products and it doesn't fall apart. You'll need to try it to understand that these are so worth the price.
I love love love this eyeliner! The color is dark purple and it's a little shimmery. It's not as soft as the regular liquif'eye eyeliner but still soft and smooth. I have been wearing this eyeliner everyday...to work...to go out. It stays on all day long until I remove it. I work 12 hour shifts and it stays on without smudging! I didn't have any stinging of the eye like the previous reviews mentioned. I will buy this over and over again and in every color!
Just got my second tube of voluminous waterproof. I wanted to try it out again because I forgot how it is, plus it continues to have decent reviews. The mascara is more "voluminous" only after the product thickens over time. When it's brand new, I have to use a few coats for thicker looking lashes. The worse part is...this mascara droops my recently curled lashes....instead of pointing up, they will point straight out. Mmm..probably won't buy again.
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types

Please allow me to rate this product a zero! Why is this product even on the market for sale? This is the worse moisturizer ever!! The scent is nasty. It's not moisturizing. It feels like it just sits on top of my skin and turns into oil. I washed it off right away. This is going straight to the trash.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Mango Body Butter

I bought this cause I love anything mango and didn't realize this is for dry to very dry skin. I have normal to dry skin. This body butter feels so oily on me. I tried to use it on my feet with socks overnight...but it would still feel oily. As much as I love mango...I can't use this.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Cranberry Body Butter

I cannot resist the holiday cranberry scent at TBS. I have all of the cranberry products and this one is a little disappointing. The consistency is like the body butter for normal skin. Absorbs nicely leaving the skin smooth and soft. But the scent is....different.... it does not scream cranberry when you open the lid like other products in the same line. It's nice if you want a subtle scent once the butter is absorbed into the skin.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Raspberry Body Butter

Love love love the scent! Raspberry is one of my favorite scents from TBS; I also like mango and coconut. This is smooth and soft just like a body "butter" should be. I love that it's for normal skin. I don't know how it is for dryer skin cause I don't have that problem. It absorbs nicely and leaves behind a faint raspberry scent. Not heavy or oily at all. Hope it will never be discontinued!
Even since I found this concealer, I stopped using my other concealers. I use this in medium (NC25) to cover my undereye dark circles and dark spots on my face. This concealer is all I need! After I conceal, I lightly powder my face and I am good all day, even working the 12-hours shift. No touch ups needed. The consistency is very creamy. It doesn't settle into one tiny fine line I have underneath the eye. It looks so natural under the eye and never cakes. I use a concealer brush to get the product out from the jar. I think the packaging is pretty convenient. I am so impressed with this concealer! I don't feel the need to continue searching for a better concealer right now.
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder

I really enjoy the packaging of this product. It's a sturdy round case, the bottom part slides open to reveal a powder pad and a mirror. I got this for 40% off at walgreens. Tried it over mac foundation today for the first time. It looks and feel very light. The finish is so smooth. I love how my skin feels with this powder and this smoothness last quite a long time. The oil control power is pretty decent too compare to other products. I will defintely buy this again.
I have been using this daily for almost two months now. This is a "whatever" product. I have no reason to buy this again. With or without it, my concealer gives me the same coverage to the dark circles. It doesn't make my undereye look brighter. The staying power of my concealer doesn't improve. If you have the extra money, it won't hurt to use a corrector. It's just an extra step to your makeup routine. I do love how compact the packaging is with a usable mirror. There is a good amount of product since a little goes a long way.
I have Juicy (red) and Sake (natural lip color pink). These are lipsticks that feel like lip balms. It's very moisturizing and stay on for a long time. It is slightly minty on the lips. I will buy this product again. I do have one complaint though....I had it in my pocket at work and it kind of melted...like it almost broke off at the base, so when I use it, it wiggles inside the tube. I guess we know that the product is very buttery soft.
Yummy red apple cheeks! This color is so intense it looks exotic in my makeup drawer. I used a stippling brush to apply it for the first time and got clown cheeks. Gotta be very careful with how much you put on the brush. With that said...I would totally buy it again if I ever hit pan....because one dap is enough for both cheeks. Love it!
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream
beibeilei 12/1/2010 6:38:00 AM
I got this in the big size that comes in a metal tube like toothpaste back in the days. I don't like the metal tube because it looks beat up after getting thrown into the purse. The cream has a very soothing powdery scent. I bought this based on good reviews to use in between frequent hand washing at work. This hand cream is moisturizing but once I wash my hands, they feel very dry again. It doesn't moisturize deeply enough for me to use at work. I will probably keep this in my purse to use when I go out. Some drug store brands work better than this cream....
I am on my third bottle. This remover is very gentle yet effective. It doesn't leave a greasy feeling after use. I will continue to buy and buy and buy.
