Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover

Ok this does remove eye MU, wp mascara, eyeliners and ALL the colors of ES you could every apply on your eyelid. BUT.... *drum rolls* it irritated my skin and my eyes (I accidentally opened my left eye a little bit and it burned). Also, it leaves a film of oil on my skin, yucks....
Ok I love this refreshing delicious summery scent, BUT it dosent react well with my skin's chemistry. So I'm out shopping n this SA hands me a paper sample of this fragrance. I swear I was in love and paid full price for this baby. So the next day I spray this on my skin before going out and URGH... The scent just changed into an awful musky moldy odor that gave me a headache. Well... Feeling upset after paying $$ for this I sprayed it onto my pillow case, and yes, the smell was what I loved again. So now I'm wearing it only on my clothes, last the entire day :) took one lippie off for the not so attractive packaging n that it dosent react well to my skin.
I bought this on sale, yes, I will use this up but I won't be purchasing again. Here's why: Yes, this does lengthen and adds volume to my lashes, but I need like 4-5 coats of layering. Also it's rather a wet formula and may clump if u r not careful. Ok, now my biggest gripe about this mascara. It DOES NOT hold a curl! Ive tried curling my lashes to an L shape and no... It just uncurls in 30 mins... Sigh..... :(

I've used at least 5 tubes of this. Love it! Foams up well and cleanses without the tight, dry feeling after. It's cheap too! Will continue to use this.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Double Extend Mascara with Lash Boosting Serum

I put this on in the morning, as usual, the fiber side coats on well, the mascara side is a true black. Held the curl and did thicken and lengthen. Ok, at lunch, I was feeling very tired and sprayed that Evian water mist thing on my face and blotted off, rubbin my eyes, totally forgetting that I had mascara. I suddenly remembered I HAD mascara, let out a small gasp and checked the tissue paper, nope, no trace of mascara at all. Went to the bathroom to check out my lashes and yes, they were just as pretty as when I applied this morning. I breathed a sigh of relief, smiled and went back to work. All these good points, now why the miserable 2 star rating? I will tell u. End of the day, I was in a hurry to get my MU off and went to bed. I tried my Neutragena, The Face Shop, and The Body Shop Chamomile eye removers and this did nonot budge!!!!! Argh! In desperation, I used Ponds Cold Cream and then I finally was able to rub it off. Needless to say, my eyes were red from all that rubbing, and I lost at least 10 lashes. Sigh.... This mascara is soooo drying to my lashes. Once bitten, twice shy. I'm not using this ever again.
Moisturizers -TheFACEShop - Eco Vert Extreme-Moisture Night Cream

I love this straight forward, dose not promise u miracles but works behind the scene moisturizer that actually does it's job! I put this on at night and it really hydrated my skin, something I need as i sleep in an air-conditioned room. The SA told me to use this as a night cream, but it's light enough to use in the day. After applying this, my skin feels smooth, not that artificial silicone smooth but a radiant fresh smooth. Love love love :)
Nails -TheFACEShop - TFS Nail Enamel Remover - Pink

The thing I hate most about nail polish is the removal, sharp smelling alcohol remover that stinks up my room, and having to look at those chipped, once pretty polish. Ok, so this remover dosent make me feel any better about my worn and torn polish, however, Im soooo appreciative of the sweet smell :). It comes in a kids proof cap and it's pink.
Hm... So I read in magazine saying that friction from tossing n turning in bed may cause your hair to become weak n break. Back to topic, I bought this serum cuz it smelt like grape candy, I use it on blow dried hair before bed and the next morning my hair is easy to brush. When I apply this in the morning, it smoothens out any knots and looks shiny. Ok, I doubt hany hair product can make ur hair look as good as a model in a hair commercial, they have lighting n Photoshop for that ;) So, when knots are smoothened, your hair defiantly looks more shiny no? There is one con though, it is kinda hard to wash off, but other than that, a very good product.
Gels/Soaps -The Body Shop - Cranberry Joy Bath & Shower Gel
doe_eyed_kitty 9/7/2012 8:54:00 AM
This is only available during Xmas season, then u see a lot of stars, sparkles, reds, purples and discount signages flooding the store. So I bought this on a whimp and I love it. Foams up well, smells fruity delish and leaves your bathroom scented after u shower. A bit on the expensive side, so I look out for post season sales. :)
I have this in #72, the autumn collection. Well, I used Chanel blushes like 5 years ago, and because of the price, I bought alternatives. So I just decided to come back to this as a treat for myself, and found that I still do love them! :) the powder is very smooth and buildable. And, it last all day. I'm a lazy girl, I don't carry a makeup pouch with me to touch up, so basically it's just prim in the morning and out the door I go. Using this blush, I still have pinky cheeks when I meet my friends at 8pm after work. The packaging is classic Chanel, a black opaque shiny box with the pretty logo. Hm... There is a downside to this, imagine having like 10 blushes and needing to makeup in a rush, I would have to flip all 10 over to find the shade that I want. Ok, no biggie since I'm not a big spender on Chanel (yet). The mirror is large and usable, the brush that comes with it is usable but I prefer using a large brush. I find myself picking this blush almost everyday and yes, I will repurchase.
Ok, so this loose powder isn't actually my fave. Just to let you know, I use this with a powder brush, not the puff that comes with it. To be fair, this powder does even out my skin and does last all day. BUT, it sank into my lines :((. It's also not very smooth n caked up on my face. I usually wash my powder brush every 5 days, but using this, I need to wash it in like 2-3 days, it leaves a lot residue on the brush, cakey cakey.. oh ya, the packaging sucks too, I get a cloud of powder everytime I open the box. Bulky and I can't take it with me when I travel.
Hm... Ok, here goes: Pros: Dosent shed Keeps it's shape Feels very smooth and gentle on the face Cons: It may pick up too much powder, so u need to have a light hand. For blusher, I prefer angled brushes, I picked this up cuz my ELF blush brush was shedding. Overall an ok product, but it can be a little bit tricky to get used too. Don't think I'll be repurchasing.
Powder -Maybelline - Clear Smooth Shine Free Face Powder

Actually, the only reason I bought this was because I needed a travel friendly powder for a short vacay. I'm using nars loose powder but it's too bulky. This powder was on sale and I picked it up, didn't have high hopes on this but it really surprised me. It really goes on smooth and dosent cake up! I ended up using this all the time :)
This is a good buy :) it's really soft and smooth, not scratchy at all. I've washed it soo many times, no problems with shedding. Will continue to use this baby!
This toner was good and did soothe my skin when I had problems with acne. BUT I went on Roaccutane (acne meds that dries up your oil glands) and tries using this again. IT BURNED my skin! Red, painful and far too tight... Sigh.... :'((
