Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

Awesome stuff. Best lip balm product I've ever tried, but it is quite pricy for what it is. The mini from the Sephora birthday set lasts such a long time! Very moisturizing and smells great. 10/10
Lip Gloss -Christian Dior - Addict Ultra Gloss - 464 Pink Croisette
dmeister3 5/31/2012 6:29:00 PM
I really love this gloss. It's pretty much the NARS Orgasm blush color transformed into a Dior lipgloss. It doesn't really have a smell or taste, unlike the NARS (which I am very glad for since the NARS taste so bad). It is decently pigmented so it is great on its own or layered over a lipstick. I love the brush applicator and the packaging overall. It has shimmers but they aren't too gritty or rough feeling. It is one of those expensive but worth it lip products!!
I love these balms overall! I love that they actually are a tinted balm and make my lips feel very soft. The Revlon lip butters seem a little drying to me. I don't like how some shades are pretty darn sheer, but they are still worth it to me. I have Caring Coral and Rose Elixer and the coral is more pigmented than the rose. I don't notice any real smell or taste either. The packaging is nice as well. Overall a great product! I'd love to see more shades released.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Continuous Control Acne Cleaner
dmeister3 5/27/2012 2:02:00 PM
I LOVE this cleanser! It is my holy grail by FAR. I have tried my fair share of face washes/cleansers from various brands and nothing even comes close to how this one performs. First of all, I can see and feel results almost instantly! It leaves my face so soft. I usually use this at night and I still have really soft skin the next day without using any moisturizer. It leaves your face feeling very clean and fresh. I have acne that pops up randomly and sometimes gets a little bad and this completely eliminates it. I think it holds up to its claim that it keeps fighting breakouts long after you wash. It's very strong stuff, I think the strongest drugstore cleanser you can buy. Fantastic fantastic stuff! Well done Clean & Clear.
Lip Gloss -MAC - Sheen Supreme Lipglass - Cherry Fest
dmeister3 5/12/2012 11:50:00 PM
I love this Mac Lipglass! The formula isn't very sticky at all, but it doesn't feel like it is going to slide right of my lips either. The color is beautiful - a nice pink with shimmer. It's not very opaque so it adds just a sheen to the lips. It'd be great over so many different lipsticks! The packaging is nice as far as the clicky pens go. I wish it was see thru though, so I know how much product I have left. I wish I would have bought more colors!! I think these were LE :(
Mascara -Tarte - Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara
dmeister3 3/21/2012 12:16:00 AM
I like this mascara, but it's not my favorite because it doesn't make my lashes dramatic enough. I can't really speak about having healthier lashes because of using this mascara because I haven't been using it long enough to notice, I guess. It claims to give 406% more volume to your lashes..I don't think it does that at all. It really lengthens, defines, and separates my lashes..but as far as volume goes, it has nothing on DiorShow or Lash Blast Fusion. The brush isn't anything special, but that's okay. The formula is nice, not too wet and not too dry. It doesn't flake or transfer at all, which is nice as well! Though I don't have any problems with those no matter what mascara I use. My lashes are decently soft with this mascara on..probably as soft as they will get with product coating them. :) Overall, it's pretty basic..a lot of other mascaras do what this one does as well as provide amazing volume, so I think I'll pass on this in the future!
Cleansers -Neutrogena - All-In-One Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes
dmeister3 3/18/2012 6:43:00 PM
I love these wipes :) I think I have gone through at least 6 or 7 packs and I'm still going! I've tried a couple different formulas, I guess, but I think I'll always come back to the original :) It gets the job done really well and I only need one wipe for my whole face. It doesn't really dry me out and doesn't break me out either. I think that they should update the packaging though with something that is completely sealable, not just a sticker type closure (the actual wipe packaging, not the outer case). That would just avoid accidentally drying the wipes out. :)
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Pink Grapefruit Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes
dmeister3 3/18/2012 6:33:00 PM
I have tried almost all the different kinds of cleansing wipes Neutrogena makes and I haven't really found one that I didn't like until now. :( The packaging is really cute because it's pink! (Which is part of the reason I bought it anyway!) The wipes work very well just like all other Neutrogena wipes. However, the scent is SO strong with these it's ridiculous. I am not someone who is usually very bothered by scents. I noticed on the back of the packaging it says, "..all with an uplifting blast of pink grapefruit." I'm not so sure about uplifting but it is a complete blast of the scent when you take your makeup off. It does not burn, but it doesn't exactly feel soothing like taking your makeup off sort of should. The scent got in my mouth and lingered everywhere for a couple of minutes. If a really really intense scent will not bother you, these might be for you.
I love this lipstick and I probably should get a backup while I can! This color I can actually pull off as an everyday lipstick (as long as I don't heap it on). I'm veery fair (MUFE 110). It's not too crazy at all, in my opinion! You can definately build the color into something that is very bright and vivid though. It lasts a decent amount of time on me and I would repurchase if I could :)
This was the first MAC product I ever bought and I love it for an everyday pink lip :) I've gone through probably 1/2 the tube at least and I'll definately repurchase when I run out! It is a frost, but it doesn't seem too frosty on my lips :) I love pairing this with almost any gloss, or none at all! This lasts a decent amount of time on me concidering I'm always talking or drinking/eating something :)
I LOVE this paint pot! It was sadly limited edition with the Posh Paradise collection though. It's the perfect shimmery golden color for nearly any neutral shadow. I like using it with things like UD's Sin or MAC's All That Glitters, Gleam, or Naked Lunch. It makes the goldeny undertones pop! Plus, who doesn't love a bit of extra shimmer :) It lasts all day with absolutely no creasing! I found this on Nordstrom not too long ago..so if you are interested I'd check there. Maybe ACW might have it too. :)
I LOVE this polish! I love all OPI colors and I have quite a few pinks, but this is my go-to pink color! It's the perfect shade of medium-hot pink :) It's a bit lighter than Feelin Hot Hot Hot for reference. I haven't made it through my first bottle since I have so much polish, but when I do I will repurchase over and over again! :) I love layering glitters over this too. No application problems and no chipping whatsoever. :)
I love this color! However, I'm not sure what is going on with Essie making this color. I have a more lilac colored bottle...but just the other day in Walgreens I saw the same color but it was like a baby blue! Did they make two different batches..or what? Very confusing :( I didn't have any problems with application besides a little streaking which goes without saying usually with pastels. I wouldn't buy this again because I wouldn't know what color I would get :(
LOVE Nubile! I use it as a base or alone over primer and I have no creasing problems! It's such a universal color you could use pretty much anything over it. I'm so fair (MUFE HD 110) that it comes off darker than my skin tone, just as reference. It's too bad that it's LE :( I guess I'll be careful not to use it up!
I bought this lipstick thinking that it would be more similar to Viva Glam Gaga, but it is not. It's much brighter and much more warm and coral than Gaga. I am not sure how it compares to Pink Friday or anything else in the department. I actually didn't have anything close to this color in my collection, but that might be because I don't tend to wear bright colors like this. That being said, this is a very bright color. I actually took a napkin and wiped the color off and it stained my lips a bit with a very pretty more toned down color! Since it is a satin finish, it is a little drying, but nothing a clear gloss couldn't fix! It smells like vanilla like all other MAC lip products, and I would repurchase again, but the color just doesn't tickle my fancy :) I love the Viva Glam cause and even if I won't use this very often, I find that it is worth a 14.50$ donation to the MAC AIDS fund (plus I love Nicki Minaj!). I'll try experimenting with it more, but it might just be too bright for me at the moment. As a reference I wear MUFE HD in 110, so I'm pretty pale. If you're into the bright coral-pinks I would check this out :) Or if you're a Nicki Minaj fan, this could be sort of a collectors item! :)
