Eyeliner -Physicians Formula - Flat Liner in Black
danceinthedark4ever 7/29/2011 9:08:00 PM
I don't know if my liner was one of those bad apples or not, but I was very dissappointed with this product. The pigmentation is awful, the black colour just doesn't come through, this liner applies as a washed-out black, a grey to say in simpler words. It's hard to apply on the upper lashline, but good for tight-lining and water-lining. The pigmentation is is just so awful, I would never repurchase.
A Grape Fit! is a gorgeous, medium purple. It's a colour that works with almost every outfit, so you don't have to give that much thought. It's playful, but not as bold as a hot pink would be. This particular I feel would suit most skintones. It's also very opaque and needs only two coats (you could probably go for one, but I always go for at least two). I think this is more of a fall/winter colour, just because it's not too bright. All in all, great polish, but probably not a repurchase since I wont run out anytime soon.
Im going to have to give this two reviews, alone, and with other mascaras. Alone, this mascara is bad. It gives me a suuuper natural look that I think is way too little. I want my eyes to have lash drama going on, and this doesn't give me that. It seperates like a dream, but the volume and length provided is not even decent. The waterproof formula really stays on, my friends were really impressed, and since it's my only waterproof mascara, I'm stuck with it for now. I don't really like it, it jut doesn't give me what I want. It's good for bottom lashes, but I don't really wear mascara on my bottom lashes, so that isn't helpful to me. Now, with OTHER mascaras, this is amazing!! I can put any mascara on - I usually use L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes because it clumps like no other - and no matter how many clumps I get, I just use this mascara to clean my eyelashes up and de-clump them!! The spiky, plastic brush (which I dont like considering it is really, really spiky and hard) is very useful for breaking up clumps at the roots. I turn it on an angle, then use a very little part of the brush to do my work. So, I do not really use this as a mascara, only if I'm going to the pool or beach, but I use this as a mascara de-clumper and groomer. For that, it works really well. All in all, I might repurchase, but only for de-clumping. It's not really worth your money if you want a nice, voumizing and lengthening mascara.
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Lipsmackers--Fanta flavors
danceinthedark4ever 7/12/2011 1:27:00 PM
I have two fanta lip smackers, i have the grape, and the pineapple. The grape one smells like grape medecine, which is decent in scent, it's also very strong ; people can smell it on me. The pineapple one is great!! Smells fruity and tropical, and is alot better than the grape! Individually, the grape would get a 3, and the pineapple a 4.
As far as I'm concerned, the pink lemonade lip smacker is one of the weaker ones, it gives a nice gloss like the rest, but the smell only barely smells like lemonade, it doesn't really smell even a little sweet, just kind of like, a waxy lemon. Not really the scent you're going for when you want to smell like pink lemonade!
Cotton candy smells amazing!! As far as lip smackers goes, there's really not much to say, it's usually just scent, but it's still nice :)
Kiwi smells amazing!! Got this at the dollarstore for only 1.25 $!!! Great price for lip smackers!! And the kiwi one, people can smell it when I have it on my lips! It's crazy!! Gives a nice gloss, smells great, not much more to say!
The watermelon one is ssoooo good!! It smells amazing, and the glossy tube one even kinda tastes amazing :O There's not much to say about lipsmackers, except that they give you a nice subtle gloss and they smell AMAZING. That's kinda it, haha
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Lip Smacker - Planetary Berry
danceinthedark4ever 7/12/2011 1:51:00 AM
Planetary Berry is my absolute favourite Lip Smacker!! Although it does not smell, or at least mine doesn't (however it's really really old), this leaves a beautiful sheen to your lips. In the tube it has a frightening frosty pale blue colour to it, but the metallic sheen in it is beautiful! Your lips get a frosty look that looks fantastic!! I hope that they didn't discontinue this, but if they didn't, I still have a hunch it's gonna be hard to find another one!!
For flip flops, I really don't mind buying new ones every summer, especially if you get 3 for 6$!! A few years ago, I had two pairs of these, and I remember loving them to death! Yes, these are pretty cheap, the thong can, and very possibly will, rip out at one point. You will have to keep rebuying these every summer. But honestly, I really don't mind. They're basic flip flops, good for the pool, the beach, places like that. They're great for summer and work really well, and they have a very nice colour selection. All in all, pretty good product.
This product has an amazing lemon and citrus scent. Perfect for everyday, especially since I don't want to wear a perfume to school everyday, but I do want a nice scent to keep me refreshed. Obviously, it needs touch ups since it is a body spray, and not a parfume, but I don't mind since I've had this forever and still have quite a bit left. Got this at a dollar store for two bucks as opposed to four or five in a drug store, it was defs a steal! Definite repurchase :)
Cleansers -L'Oreal - Go 360 Anti-Breakout Facial Cleanser
danceinthedark4ever 6/15/2011 1:29:00 AM
I bought this product partly because of the ads and partly because of the scrublet. The ads are very convincing, Freida Pinto is abslutely gorgeous and has amazing, flawless skin which one would hope to get using this product. I however, absolutely HATED this product. At the beginning I thought it was great, I loved the scrublet (I still do, it's quite handy) and I liked the tingling sensation after using this product. The cleanser isn't at all harsh on the skin, because I know some can be harsh with the scrublet. The problem I had however, was although this was an anti-breakout product, it broke me out pretty nastily. I still have some nasty pimples that came from using this product. My skin was just starting to get better when I purchased this at Walmart, for around 7 USD. However after a few weeks, my acne wasn't getting any better, it was slowly getting worse. I didn't know what was up, until I told my friend and she said that alot of people had told her this product had broke them out. I put two and two together and realised what this product was doing for my skin. My mom suggested I use this when my skin clears up a bit, but I can't afford to amp up my pimple some more, so that's it! I have not thrown it away since I love the scrublet for moisturizer and other skin products. Pluses are that the packaging is cute, the scrublet is a godsend, and a little goes a long way. However, this product has done lasting damage on my skin, after months of not using it, I still see what it did. I'm sorry that my review is very negative, after the other ones are very positive, but I truly did not have a good experience with this product.
Styling Products -Citre Shine - Shine Miracle Anti-Frizz Polisher
danceinthedark4ever 6/2/2011 10:21:00 PM
Oh my gosh, I used this product, and it was absolutely HORRIBLE. My amazing hair can go five days without being greasy, it's crazy! When I used this product after a shower a few days ago, it started off looking okay. I went to bed as usual and when I woke up, I had crazy curls, which is normal. The problem I had with this, is that it ways my hair down SOO much, and that it makes my hair GREASY. It's disgusting. Second day hair usually means my hair is still fabulous, no grease whatsoever, and my hair still smells like my shampoo. However, when I used this, my second day hair was disgustingly heavy, and absolutely greasy to the touch. It felt like my hair was covered in thick oil. Nasty!! I would NEVER EVER recommend this, partial to all the other reviews, this did not work at all. And I didn't put too much in. Ugh, I can't wait to wash my hair :S
Conditioner -Clairol - Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship
danceinthedark4ever 5/3/2011 1:19:00 AM
I have medium to thick wavy curls with a medium/long length, for reference. First thing I have to say, the number of split ends I have, has gone down. I use no split end treatment, or anything for long hair, so it HAS to be this! That's great, this conditioner obviously has made my hair healthier! I use quite a bit so my frizzy, pouf of a hair calms down, but I still have plenty of volume (possibly too much?). The smell is fantastic, as usual with Herbal Essences! Softer hair, but maybe a bit drier than before? A little bit I think.. but it's not too bad so it doesn't matter to much to me, but if you have fine hair I'd be a bit more wary..
This shampoo claims to be a straightening shampoo, and while it doesn't change my wavy curls to gorgeous straight strands, it makes my hair less frizzy, smooth, and smelling amazing! It doesn't straighten (like I just said), but it makes my hair easier to straighten, so for that I give it credit. The scent is just amazing, I could smell my hair all day long, but that would be creepy. I have seen my curls be much smoother and softer since I started using this. And it's crazy cheap, and easily accessible since most drugstores like Walmart, London Drugs, Shoppers carry it. Great product! :)
