Mascara -Maybelline - Illegal Length Fiber Extensions
donutlooksforgreatproduct 3/12/2013 11:06:00 PM
I love this mascara. I was originally looking for a really cheap one to use in te mean time since my favourite high end one wasn't instock. And let me say, wow! I am amazed!! This mascara gives me amazing length, holds a curl and give decent volume! Even better than my high end mascara. It's cheaper and more effective. Two coats and I have amazing skyscraper lashes. If I want a little more natural look I just put a primer underneath and do one coat. Of all mascara a I've used, I love this the most. The brush is on the long side but for some reason I like it. The packaging is super cute with pink writing on a silver tube. It's been over a month and hasn't dried out at all. I shall repurchase instead of Lancôme definicils. This stuff is waaaay better!

I first smelt this at shoppers and I immediately fell in love with it, but it was quite expensive so I was saving up. When I had the money I bought it at a more local place. I brought it home and was so excited because at the other store the tester was the same. I opened it and sprayed it for the first time and it smelled completely different! It didn't smell fruity floral or whimsical as I remembered. It smells like an old lady perfume and it gives me a headache. Why? A reformulation? It is awful. It smells too much like flowers and I can't even identify the notes. I really wanted it to smell like the tester but it doesn't. I wasted so much money on this too. Really disappointed, pissed off and I am ready to break something. I will not exchange or buy a new one for the fear of the same thing happening. I hate this perfume and if it can't have the same smell as the tester I hope it gets discontinued. Edit: so after a while of having it, I was still going to wear it once and a while so it's not that bad. After some time it started smelling the way I remembered it. So it just needed to time to air out. I get tons of compliments from this and I noticed that both guys and girls seem to stand closer to me when I'm wearing this. No doubt to smell me. This fragrance truly is enchanting and I and others could smell it all day. I'm sorry for doubting you Taylor swift! This is truly an amazing fragrance and I will definitely repurchase is I ever run out which I know I will!
Mascara -L'Oreal - Double Extend Eye Illuminator Mascara
donutlooksforgreatproduct 7/7/2012 10:17:00 PM
IN LOVE! The base coat makes my lashes full and long in a subtle way. It is tinted so It can look quite natural for me. I have the one for brown eyes and blue since I have color contacts. Personally The one for blue eyes look better on brown eyes than blue. Natural or un natural. The shimmer isn't too noticeable so that kind of disappointed me but I got over it since I tried a mascara with noticeable shimmer and I got creeped out..In natural lighting it is very flattering. My sister noticed this and took a picture which turned out fantastic. When I wear it my friends say my eyes sparkle. I like the simmer for day to be honest since it's modest. I know mascaras are to be thrown out after three months but I loved it too much to throw it out..which is unhealthy since bacteria build up but surprisingly the quality hasnt changed since I first got it. It still stays on all day which other mascaras fail to do after three months. I finished ths in 8 months and got a new one. Same quality. love this so much to every last coat.
I don't have to much redness on my face on a regular basis but I do some redness. This powder is amazing to my face! It practically makes the redness disappear and lightens my skin subtly. I'm asian, so the lightening is a plus. The brush that comes with it is okay, I only use it for travel. The powder lasts a lifetime. I use it over my mineral foundation to set it since the foundation alone doesnt work and there is still little redness showing. It is amazing for color correction and setting. I love this. I am so glad my friend showed this to me. Each individual color in this is sheer, the white i use sometimes for an eyebrow highlight and it beautiful. The other colors are so sheer they can create a soft glowing eye look so bonus. I love this and I am very surprised at the low reviews this has
I will start with smell, this smells so good! I put some in my palm and smell it everytime before I put it in my hair because I am in love with the smell. My boyfriend likes it too so bonus~ The texture is like lotion. It spreads amazingly so I don't use too much or else it turns my hair oily. I have medium hair at the moment and use only half a pump. It protects my hair, normally after I get a hair trim my split ends come back in about a week but after using this I haven't seen any after 5 months. It lasts a real long time since you need so little. I also use it when I curl my hair. Sometimes it gets waay to curly and excited so I smooth some of this over my hair and it goes into the exact look I want and again, smells greeat. I have no idea how I have survived without this. Now that I have it I can't imagine being without it <3
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Makeup Dissolving Foaming Cleanser
donutlooksforgreatproduct 5/19/2012 10:36:00 PM
I wear mascara and heavy coverage foundation often. I hate removing mascara and eyeliner with makeup remover and cotton ball or pad because it wipes of all over my face. With foundation I have to go over a million times. This though removes it like a charm. When removing mascara i massage my lashes and I can just feel that stiff mascara breaking down and ready to be rinsed off. Same with my foundation. Right after I rinse I can feel every single speck of makeup off my face. I'm on my second bottle of this and I just know I'll be using this for a long time to come. My acne has reduced because I'm removing my makeup properly now. With this you get the deep clean, then If you cleanse you face afterward your skin will just feel amazingly clean and pure. I am in love with this. It takes time to look good but you don't want to spend too much time getting it all off. The pump dispenses the greatest amounts. You could remove only eye makeup and concealer with one pump. With two you remove you entire face makeup with the eye makeup as well. My cousin uses this also and she wears that loud bold edgy makeup. She gets by on just one pump. It is every cheap so no complaints about it, except sometimes the pump makes a weird sound when you press it.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Volume Waterproof
donutlooksforgreatproduct 5/19/2012 10:25:00 PM
Stays on, lives up to it's name, and doesn't budge. I have rubbed my eyes with it on, I have cried with this on, and I've even been swimming with it on. It gives you amazing volume and length. It is a little liquidy but It dried. When you get it wet it stays on but flakes a little. It makes you lashes big and bold. It keeps the curl but not when It gets wet. Everything smudges on my lower lashline but not this. It stays on me forever and lasts long in the bottle. I know it expires when it smudges on me. The wand can be a little awkward to hold and apply sometimes but my fingers have a lot of friction so it doesn't slip and slide in my hands so I don't find it a problem. I love this with bold and edgy looks. It stays even if you are sweating, crying, or swimming (for me, more like drowning. At least I looked good when I was saved ;D)
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner
donutlooksforgreatproduct 5/19/2012 10:15:00 PM
I heard so much about this and wanted to love this so much but didn't. This just slips and slides all over my face. It only works for me if I layer my liquid eyeliner over it but that is just pointless. Or If I pack it on. It looks too dark and I'm wearing too much of it. The brush that comes with it isn't too good either. I like the color of the charcoal and brown though. The black doesn't come out too vibrant on me. I'm better off using a black eyeshadow applied with a wet brush. It lasts long though but I think it's over rated and a little over priced for this quality. I wish I could be like the youtubers or the people who love this but I'm not. I was very disappointed in this gel liner. It can create a bold dramatic look but it won't stay on for long. Sometimes it works for me but most of the time it doesn't so I have a love hate relationship with this. We'll have to break up after i'm finished it but I will keep the jars since I really do like the packaging
I am in love with this eyeliner. I'll start with color. I had gotten a black one and it i just the most amazing thing ever. All the other ones are just as great quality but I had purchased the blackest black one and on me it turned out brown. On paper it turned out black. I was very confused. It happened to my cousin too but she didn't mind it so i gave it to her since that annoys me. If you don't close the cap correctly(hear the click) it could dry out. The felt tip can get dirty since its a pen but that doesn't affect the color in any way. I can create thick and thin lines. It is so easy to use. It stays on all day for my upper lashline. If i put t on my lower lashline it doesn't seem to stay but I rarely do that d it doesn't matter to me. I use this everyday for a day look since it doesn't come out too dark or bold do it doesn't create very bold looks but it gives you that sweet look. You could use it as a guideline since it is very easy to use and control. I am very picky about my eyeliners so when I find one I like it is like I found my missing half <3
I am in love with this product. When I came to write this review I found it surprising that a lot of people didn't like it. First it was dirt cheap like a dollar or so. When it says smudge proof, it really means smudge proof. However if you apply it too thick (layer by layer or a glop of it on) it will smudge and melt but who's stupid enough to put too much on. I had worn this during an intense workout my friend dragged me on. I forgot I even had it on since it doesn't feel heavy or feel like its there at all. After I had looked in the mirror I realized my eyeliner was perfect but...my foundation was melting off and my eyeshadow was creasing..but the eyeliner is perfect. I had bought this over a year ago and just had to throw it out now, it still had plenty left but I ruined the brush and broke the bottle (don't ask how) so I'm going to buy a new one soon. I got mine at sirens and everything I go there they always have it so I know where to so. I really like this liner, even better than the revlon colorstay felt tip. It plenty cheaper so I am in love. I might even pick up two since they last so long and when I finally finish one for real i'll be in university in a different city. I absolutely love the black I'll try the blue one as well.
Liquid -Rimmel - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation
donutlooksforgreatproduct 5/7/2012 10:23:00 PM
The foundation does last for very long indeed, not sure about 25 hour since I haven't ever worn it that long and I don't intend to either. This foundation is color tricky for me(200). In the tube it looks darker than it actually is. When I apply it, it's very pale on me. It oxidized later and matches so it's fine. But if you wear it for a very long time it turns orange. Other than that it's amazing. Good coverage, can be built up, goes on smooth and easy. Sometimes I find it a little thick on my skin so if that bothers you, you can find another foundation that can be better
It has great coverage and does look amazing in photos so it lives up to its claims, but for me it breaks me out if i wear it for long periods of time so I only use it on special occasions. Everyone complains about the glitter but it's not an issue for me. I have seen glitter on other people's faces but I don't find it ugly or distracting so I don't care. The bottle is bulky however. The cap of it always seems to fall off in my makeup bag but luckily no foundation gets squeezed out accidentally. I like the pump and all but it is quite big. I think revlon can slim down the packaging and it would be better. I find it goes on pale at first but oxidized to match your skin tone later or that's just me. It looks amazing in photos for me so I'll keep using it. It's a little thick but i'm okay with it for the good coverage and amazing photo results
I love this product! The ease of use is amazing. I love the gel that comes with it. With my eyebrows pencils usually never stays on so I always need gel. The gel comes in a matching color so it doesn't look dirty as opposed to clear brow gel. On days I don't use the specific pencil I still use the gel. It doesn't have a brow brush, but with the gel wand I don't need it. The darker colors tend to be very pigmented for brows so a light hand is suggested. After so many different pencils and gels for my brows I finally found the one. My hg brow product.
Conditioner -TRESemme - Vitamin E Moisture Rich Conditioner
donutlooksforgreatproduct 5/5/2012 9:21:00 PM
Hate this. This conditioner makes my hair oily and fall out! I have thin hair as it is, I don't eed to lose any more. THe conditionner has this interesting consistancy to me. But I hate it. The shampoo isn't any better. Maybe I'll stick with pantene. I like it a whole lot better than this even if it 'does bad' to to your hair. It makes mine better.
The colors are nice. I got this since it was pretty cheap and the colors were monochromatic. It's simiilar to my lancome quad colorwise but not quality wise. I lik to use my fingers to apply most products since I'm always in a rush to get ready and let me tell you now, don't ever do that in your entire life. They blend horribly with your fingers. They are highly pigmented and last long though so that's a good thing. Its bst to use a brush but I don't have that time too find one. It's great to use before I go out later in the day however. think I'll stick to my lancome quad however
