i hate this. i had used it before and not been happy with the results but i tried again today only to remember why it had stayed unused in my drawer for so long. the color is so sheer, nothing shows up even on my ultra-fair skin and the brush that comes with it makes a huge mess of the blush. it's a waste of money.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Walking on Eggshells

i am in love with this trio it is PERFECT. all the colors come out really well on my skintone and look so natural. i can not believe i hadn't used wnw shadows before, i am smitten. i got this one, and silent treatment for $3.10 all together. what a steal, will for sure repurchase.
i love this! i use is morning and night. because it is summer, and i am outside most of the time i lose a lot of moisture in my skin. this is perfect, it gets rid of my dry patches fairly quickly when followed up with moisturizer. my skin always feels so soft and CLEAN after i use it. it won't remove makeup, so do that before hand. this bottle has lasted me a long time and when it finally runs out i will definitely be purchasing again.
so i was about to get in the shower, but first i went on MUA (hahah, i know, but we all do it). i saw this and was surprised. plain old sugar? i read the reviews and thought i might as well try it. i mixed sugar with honey and water (we didn't have EVOO) in a small bowl and brought it into the shower with a spoon because i knew this could get really messy.i used the scrub on my face, neck, chest, arms and legs. all i can say is i feel amazing! my skin is SO soft and i don't have all these little red irritation bumps that scrubs usually give me (such as LUSH's sandstone soap, stay away from that). i was out in the sun a lot yesterday and my face got pretty red and flaky but now it is even & as i mentioned, feels incredible. i am so excited to use this more often.
i have used this for a month and half or so and i still have a good portion of the bar left, so that's a pro. even though it is pricey, it will last you a long time! however, i colour my hair every month and i just found out that this "natural" shampoo contains sulfates. i am very angry, that is terrible for the colour of my hair, it strips and dries it. i even asked the SA if the shampoo contained sulfates and she said no. so if you don't have coloured hair, go for it, this is a great shampoo. but i am not happy, i spend too much time and money on my hair to use a shampoo that will wreck it.
this product in its lightest shade was far too dark for me, and pulled orange on my skin. i wanted something that is easy for me to wear in the summer and heat. i don't wear foundation normally mainly due to the fact i have not found a single one that fits my skin tone. this was a major miss.
Eye Shadow -Clinique - Color Surge in Strike it Rich

although i use this regularly, i give it three lippies because it is not very wearable on its own. if i don't use a primer, it doesn't spread and creases after a few hours. i don't use the applicator, but wash my hands and use my fingers to avoid intense fallout (a problem i've always had with clinique). also, i received this shadow as a gift but due to the price i would not repurchase it on my own. l'oreal's infallible eyeshadow in gold imperial is a perfectly good DS dupe for this.
I wear a light gold shadow nearly every day and I had noticed horrible creasing as the day went on. I saw this at work and it wasn't very expensive, even less with my discount! I wasn't expecting much but the more I use it the more I like it. it dries matte and provides a great base for my eyeshadow in one simple step, and I have noticed no creasing. will definitely repurchase
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Creme Brulee
danafoxx 6/10/2012 8:26:00 PM
this is my HG lipstick! it's absolutely perfect! it is not hard to upkeep, i simply wear it as i would a chapstick. it's a great nude colour and nourishes so well. i have already repurchased once. i recommend it to everyone.
i really wanted to like this! i love revlon, but don't use this without a base or separate top coat. i did and it peeled and flaked so fast, taking some of my nail with it. i bought 860 (metallic) a colour i had been looking for for a long time, so i applied a base coat and tried again and it has stayed after a few days of work and school. overall, not worth your $.
