Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack
effboysinthebutt 10/9/2006 1:05:00 AM
I've never used anything except pencil liner, and I have to say I like this. I have to perfect my skill with a brush but The color is basically waterproof... it stays on for a very long time. The pot looks really small, but you only have to use a little. I'm very impressed. It seems easier than a liquid liner would be, and it gives you the same effect. I would definately buy this again.
Cleansers -Phisoderm - pH2O daily replenishing wash

I love this. I've used it for a few years now... and believe it or not the bottle used to be twice as big for the same price. It's a good product. I have combination skin and it doesn't dry me out and actually works. I would definately recommend this.
This stuff is so gross, and sticky. Ontop of that it stinks like cigar's. I got a sample tube and I faired better than my mom. She paid for the tube. It's gross. It works ok, but the cigar or in my moms oppinion metal taste isn't worth it. I would never buy this again. I'm also going to stop getting suckered by their sales people. Total garbage. I threw the mini tube out.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Sweet Talk Mouth Watering Lip Gloss

This is one of the most discusting lip gloss' I've tried. Infact to be honest VS's make up line has done nothing to impress me. Especially this. It's so tacky... beyond tacky. This is the tackiest lip gloss I've ever bought. I returned it. I would never buy this again.
I wouldn't buy this again. I bought the clear shimmery one, and while the color is pretty, it's so sticky and drying. I HATE sticky lip products. I really wanted this to be the end all clear shimmer, but... another dud.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this lip balm. I've tried Lancome, Neutrogena, Carmex, Blistex, Neosporin Lip Treatment, who knows what else... This is amazing. This has made me have a single lip balm in my train case. I carry this everywhere I go. I think it's so amazingly light, it isn't greasy or thick. It just slides over the lips and absorbs. But not so fast that you have to reapply often. I truthfully only use this when my lips are dry. Wether their cracked or dry, within a few minutes it soothes them. As far as cracked lips it literally takes a day or two to heal them. It's a little pricey at $16, but totally worth it. I have some left over Lancome in my case (only because it too was expensive, who wants to throw that away) i've had for a year, in less than 6 months this tube is almost gone. If you don't invest in lip care often this is definately a NEED. And it's multipurpose. I too have put the balm underneath my eyes.
I really liked this until I tried Lorac's Vitamin E stick. After that it was all over. It's somewhat sticky and thick. I have half a tube I bought a year ago. I still use it occationally, and i use that term loosely. It's not bad if you need or want something thick... but that annoys me that's the only reason I wouldnt buy again. That and it's discontinued.
I used this before I invested in Lorac's Vitamin E stick, and hated it. I don't so much disagree with the smell or taste, it just didn't work. I really thought it would given neosporin heals skin, but.. it failed as most do.
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types

I just bought this about a week ago. When I ordered it came with a little tiny cute sample jar, and a packet sample. I've been using just the samples for the past week, because lets face at 35 bucks if it makes my skin awful I want to send it back. After reading the reviews on here I was REALLY nervous that it would break my face out or just not work at all. I have to say so far, I love this. It's not heavy, it absorbs quickly and it's not oily. I wear it under make up, to bed at night. It's nice. It's moisturizing, it hasn't broken my face out. The only complaint I have is the smell. Alot of people say "lavender". I say a combination of Melted barbie, bug spray, and sunscreen. It's not the most pleasant smell coming out of the jar. But gladly I can say once you put it on, no one else smells it. I even did the husband test and made him smell me ha. He couldn't believe that jar smelled like that and my skin didn't. It's not the most pleasing smell, but it's not something you can't live with. This is a good product. I have combination skin... right in the middle. I'm either dry, normal, or oily. And it works.
Eye Shadow -Too Faced - Eyeshadow (singles and duos)

I really wanted to like these colors. I bought Fantasy Island, Island Fever, and Steel Magnolia. They're AWFUL. I've gotten rid of every single one. While the colors look good in the package, there is so little actual pigment to these. I would prefer to buy drugstore brand over this. Especially at $17 a duo. I would not recomend these, and would not buy them again.
I bought this in Jennifer and Sorbet Compatables. And I love the Jennifer. Sorbet you can't really see that well on my skin. But the Jennifer gives me a really nice glow... not an obvious blush color. It's so pretty. I would definately buy Jennifer again. It's so pretty.
Blush -Bare Escentuals - Blush Compatibles from Bare Minerals

I bought this in Jennifer and Sorbet. And I love the Jennifer. Sorbet you can't really see that well on my skin. But the Jennifer gives me a really glow... not and obvious blush color. It's so pretty. I dont think i'd buy the compatables but I would buy Jennifer itself :)
I have to say, I have thin skin around my eyes. And I've always had darker skin in the inside corner and under my eye. I have to say this covers more naturally than any concealer I've used. It even basically gets rid of the dark color on the inside of my eye. I like this. I would like it a little more if it gave just a little heaver coverage I guess. But it does cover up any blemishes. I would definately buy this again.
I kind of like this product. It does what it says it's going to do, but to me it feels heavy. Not as heavy as say MAC foundation... but heavier than I thought it would. I'm not sure if I would buy it again. I wore the foundation today without it, and I think the foundation is good on its own. Perhaps I'm just using too much.
Eye Shadow -Too Faced - Fantasy Island eyeshadow duo

I am not crazy about Too Faced Shadows so far. I've had Fantasy Island and Island fever, and while the other had good pigment this one was incredibly light even with eye primer. I definately think I'm done with TOo Faced.
