Been looking for a cheap drugstore mascara for everyday use and this one is great. I like the wand, it doesnt clump, and it layers well. No shedding during the day and it comes off easily with a makeup wipe and some jojoba oil.

This is ok for me, not a hg item at all. Nice thin coverage- if thats what you like. It didnt oxidize on my and lasted all day with powder and setting spray. I dont really have anything bad to say, but i dont think i would repurchase.

ew. Now, I am in love with the spray, but this mousse? NOooo. It doesnt smell anything like the spray, and leaves a strange residue on my hands. I would not recommend this to pink sugar lovers.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Haus of Gloi - Perfume Oil - Depravity

Oooh this is a dark and lovely scent. It lasts an incredibly long time! It has most certainly grown on me. Upon first "sniff" I was taken back, and rebuked the strange scent that befuddled my senses, but it grew on me quickly as I kept going back and smelling my wrist every 2 minutes. I love wearing it at night. I imagine if you were to see a lovely dark haired temptress -siting in a dark corner- adorned in a velvet dress- reading some mysterious novel- sipping wine this is what she would smell like... lmao :D The lotion when paired together lasts insanely long and will just make you soft and smell delicious.
Treatments -Ren - Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask

OMG I love this product. My skin looks tighter, lighter, and brighter after using. The smell is fruity and not obnoxious, it kinda grew on me. Using once a week, my skin looks fantastic after several weeks. The ONLY drawback is the price, but it IS worth it.
No stinging, burning or redness. It does a nice job, but nothing jaw dropping for me. My skin looks nice afterwards and doesnt dry me out. I heard great things for this mask, but it really doesnt draw much out for me.
I grew up using warm vanilla sugar from bbw. I grew out of it and was looking for something similar, and this is perfect. Its like a grown up version of vanilla. I like it so much, its an interesting smell. Very sweet though.
Honestly this is an over-glamorized kaboodle. Way over priced. About the 3rd time using it I started hearing a strange buzzing sound and static which I believe is a bad connection somewhere in the wiring. Its really sturdy and zips which feels very secure. I like the trays that slide out however one is a little loose and it tilts some. Overall it works great for what its made for I just think its overrated. The makeup that came with it was absoulutly wonderful and I love all of the Stila products I have tried. It is a great travel companion, but save your money on a travel carrier, and spend it on their makeup. :D
I went through my first tube of this in LOVE. At first I was a bit taken back by such a small wand as I have grown up using gigantic sized wands. Let me tell you.... it gives the most amazing length, and for those of us born with pityful excuses for lashes, its a miracle. The smaller wand gets the tiny lashes near the inner eye with out getting a mess everywhere. Now it doesn't give much volume, therefore I use it for day looks, or more natural makeup days. It lasts all day, and hasnt damaged my lashes. I always had the understanding drugstore mascaras were not any good, but I will be repurchasing a tube of this!!!!!
Mascara -Rock & Republic - Extremist Mascara in Noir
calamityjane85 7/14/2011 7:11:00 PM
Now I love my RnR lip glosses, but sadly I'm not in love with the mascara- I like it, but its mediocre. I love the tube its very nice, but lets get down to the product itself. The wand is thick and a bit to large for my eye shape. It makes my lashes very thick and adds volume, but its lacking in the length department. Now, I know everyone has a different opinion on mascaras, but for me its just average. As quickly as mascaras die, for the price I would prefer CG lashblast, as for me it is about the same.
I love this color. I use it when I want a nude lip, but with a cooler tone than my other nudes. When looking at the tube it looks pearly and pink, but when I apply it, it just looks shiny kinda peachy. Hint of vanilla, not sticky and I love the packaging, very luxurious!
Lip Gloss -Rock & Republic - Luxe Lip Gloss in Loudmouth
calamityjane85 7/14/2011 7:00:00 PM
Loudmouth is the perfect name for this! Be prepared for full on color as it is very pigmented. You only need a little of this bad boy!! It is the perfect hot pink shade for me. Very glossy, doesn't bleed, lasting power is ok, smells- a hint of vanilla. The packaging is great as with all rnr products. Love it.
This is my favorite of the rock and republic glosses I own. Its a subtle peach and is my go -to nude gloss. A hint of vanilla, not sticky. Doesn't last very long on me, but it gives high gloss and nice sheer color. I love the tube it's very luxurious and very well made- not flimsy at all.
waited on reviewing this for a while, been using steady for a few months. i dont think i will repurchase for the following reasons.... it wears off easily on me not good for gals with serious undereye issues. its a good color match and the consistency is nice, but it just doesnt meet my expectations of a hg concealer at all. not that i have been on the quest, but i think there are others out there who would meet my expectations better.
Mascara -Maybelline - Lash Discovery Mini-Brush Waterproof
calamityjane85 6/14/2011 8:18:00 AM
I am loving this mascara! It does wonders for my sad little lashes. For a day look jus apply one coat, for a night look do a few coats. No clumping, smudging, dryin out. It is a pain to remove but hey its waterproof! I actually like the smaller brush, it allows me to reach the tiny end ones without making a mess and getting to much product. Great mascara!
