Toners -Elizabeth Arden - Hydra-Splash Alcohol Free Toner
brownsugarncutie 5/20/2013 11:20:00 PM
I have been using this toner for the past week and I am quite pleased with it! I love that this is alcohol free and is quite gentle on the skin, unlike the other toners that burn and sting while stripping the skin of moisture. After applying this product, my face feels moisturized and I have noticed that my skin has regained the glow it used to have! :) Definitely recommend!
Masks -Yes To Carrots - Yes to Cucumbers-Calm Care Smoothing Facial Mask

I discovered this company recently and have purchased a couple of different products to try out and this is one of them. I have always eyed them at my local Target curiously, as I am always interested in trying out new beauty products but never got around to actually purchasing it because I already have way too many products sitting around. The product itself is very good! It is a pretty grey-green color and has a very clean, pleasant scent to it. It does smell a bit like cucumbers. It felt great on my skin going on and while the jar may seem small, it will last a good while since you only need a little bit for each application. I did feel the slight burning after the initial application but it quickly faded and my skin looked good after I washed it off. I can't wait to try out other products from this cute & natural company!
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Warm Vanilla Sugar - Fragrance Mist
brownsugarncutie 4/16/2013 6:17:00 PM
Picked this up during one of their Semi-Annual Sales. At first, I was quite pleased with the product. I get headaches from strong scents and I thought this light fragrance mist would be perfect for me. When you first spray it, it is a sweet vanilla scent but as time passes, the sweeter notes disappear and you are left with a bitter scent. My fiance even asked why I smell like cigarette smoke and I do not smoke! :( Returning this.
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - megalast nail color - Sugar Coat
brownsugarncutie 11/21/2012 1:50:00 PM
I own the entire line of Wet 'n' Wild nail polishes. If you check my reviews for them, you will see that I have given them all 4 or 5 lippies. This one, on the one hand, is simply TERRIBLE. The color is a pretty pale pink in the bottle but the formula is so awful. It applies very very streaky and is still streaky at even three coats. I had to apply 5 coats to get it to look somewhat wearable. The polish also takes forever to dry even with my high end top coat and it's so frustrating when it smudges or nicks because that means you have to start all over again. It's just not worth the trouble and I don't care that it only costs $1.99. I will definitely be returning this.
Meh. Not a fan of this one. The formula really is horrible. It's so watery and streaky even with three coats! The color is pretty in the bottle but it's just not worth the effort. =/
WOW. Seriously impressed with this color! It is a gorgeous, deep, creamy red with amazing color payoff. The formula dries fast too! It's such a beautiful and classy color. Not too bright not too dark. Definitely will repurchase.
I got this as a part of the sample kit when EDM still let you pick the colors you wanted to try and I just received the full-size that I ordered today! I didn't think to try it on when I first got it since it looked boring and dark in the jar. It's been years now and this blush has become one of my favorites! It gives such warmth and a natural glow to my face. It's simply beautiful! Oh, and don't worry about the shimmers. I don't like obvious shimmers in my blush because I find them to be tacky. This looks shimmery in the jar but on the skin, it's more of like a slight sheen. Will repurchase if I ever run out of my full-size.
Excellent mascara! I highly recommend this product. Absolutely no clumping and enhances the look of my lashes without looking unnatural. Will repurchase again and again.
This mascara is pretty good! It does not clump unless you put on more than three coats and does not smudge or run unless you get water on your eyes. It does not claim to be waterproof so I am not going to focus on that. It defines the lashes nicely while giving them some length. I wish it would lengthen my lashes a bit more but it is a pretty good mascara overall.
This mascara clumps wayyyyyy too much. The final look using this product is just not very pretty and it looks like you have too much black mess on your eyelashes. Even my fiance, who usually does not notice anything different with my makeup, made a comment about how it looks so 'cakey.' Will not be repurchasing.
My favorite out of my extensive wet n wild megalast collection! Just one coat and it gives my nails a clean, polished look. Dries fast and lasts well.
Lotions/ Creams -Suave - Everlasting Sunshine lotion
brownsugarncutie 8/6/2012 5:16:00 PM
Suave lotions are cheap, which is the only reason I keep trying them out. This is one of the newer scents and I actually quite like it! Like someone else mentioned, this lotion smells like sweet bananas mixed with a bit of vanilla. It's very tropical and delicious. Sort of reminds of the Banana Boat's tanning sprays. The reason why I took off two lippies is because the product itself is just like other Suave lotions. The lotion does not seem to moisturize well and it seems to sit on top of my skin. It leaves a slightly sticky film. Not a desired result from a lotion....
Styling Products -Got 2 Be - Smooth Operator Smoothing Lustre Lotion
brownsugarncutie 8/3/2012 12:45:00 PM
I was drawn to this product because of the cute pink packaging and it was conveniently on sale for buy one get one half off. I bought it along with the guardian angel heat protectant from the same line. I'm not crazy about the smell as some of the other reviewers. The smell is good but at the same time, it's a very artificial and immature sweet smell. I put this product in my hair after a shower while my hair was still a bit damp. This product did a great job at calming down my thick, coarse hair without making it greasy. My hair was soft and smooth after I was done styling it. As the day wore on, however, my hair started getting very dry at the ends. To be fair, my hair is damaged and dry at the ends to start with from all the heat styling. This product only seemed to dry out my hair more. I believe it is the alcohol in this product that is to be blamed for this drying effect. Because of this, I will not be repurchasing.
Bought this from CVS today and I am impressed! I love that this is bigger and bulkier than other razors since it makes shaving my legs soooo much faster. It gives a really close shave yet it is super gentle on the skin and it is impossible to cut yourself with it. Honestly, the best razor I have used and I will repurchase again and again. Also, I really do not think the price is too high. It was around $13 at CVS but I have seen it for as low as $8.50 on sale. The cartridges run around $17 for a 4 pack. The design is super cute as well.
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - Megalast in "Private Viewing" #204A

One of my favorite colors from the collection! It looks boring in the container but it's really pretty on the nails. Great lasting power just like all the polishes from this line. UPDATE 10/11/2012 Still in love with this color.
