i love this mascara i wear it just for fun because i have the purple one and it shows up really well i dont really need volume so i can't attest to its volume capability but the colour payoff is awsome people do actually notice i love tghis for the days when im really lazy and don't want to bother with anyting but mascara its fun and inexpensive i would repurchase it forsure.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Orange Freeze Temptations

i love this lotion its smells so good and i love orange creamcicles and the packaging is so cute cus on the back its has the nutrition facts i love the temptations.
i love this stuff. everything about it! i noticed my pores were smaller the first time i used it. it treats my acne i love the smell wich for whatever reason i want to describe as green apples (which i know sounds weird but i love it) and i love how a few seconds after you put it on your face (or where ever you put it i guess) get like this cold tingly feeling. im never going to buy another "effective" three step program or astringent ever again!
i love this lipstick i kills me that its limited edition, its a beautiful frost according to mac white gold, thats not how i would describe it but its indescribable.it looks nothing like the swatch on the website (but nothing really ever does) i love this colour because it a nude colour but still very noticible because its so frosty ill wear it with any eye look intenes or natural. its not what most people would call wearable but i would wear it all the time ( the only reason i dont wear it every day is because its LE and i want to savor it) has the signature bright neon orange packaging of the neo sci fi collection (which i kno itsn't the reason to buy it but is still really fun). love this colour would repurchase if it wasn't LE
i love this colour its the only eyeshadow i got from the naughty nauticles (which i regret) but i am happy with this one. its a matte colour not my fav finish but with such a dark colour it looks good matte. its like a midnight blue but it does have subtle purple in it. it works well as a crease ( i use it as a crease with cliniques iced mauve). it could also work well wet with as an eyeliner. and i also use it all over my lid with a bit of pink in the inner corners of my eye ( i find it makes my eyes stand out). it isn't as pigmented as most of they're other colours but since its really dark i can't complain.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - Wear Infinité Eyeshadow Quad
ellesluvsmac 7/20/2008 12:27:00 AM
i liked this shadow i didn't love it. i have mine in very violet( i think :S somthing violet anyways) and it love all of the colours but i only use three of them i have a - crease - dark purple - highlight - light pink/purple (similar to cliniques frosted blossom w/ less shimmer) - base neutrel pretty boring purple - and a shimmery purple with a rusty tone to it i love the first three together as a base crease and highlight for a simple daytime look but the fourth one is just there it doesn't really complement the other colours and dont have anything else that would really work with it but other then that its pretty great i find the other three verry versatile i use them with alot of the other stuff i own. the colour payoff isn;t exceptional but its not bad i've never used them wet but that would probably work for a more intense look
this is the only trio i have from nyx i love it! i love the packaging and the mirror inside. unfortunatly i dropped mine the down side the mirror broke the upside the shadows didn't. i dont't need to pack it on it has excellent colour payoff i've heard that other nxy trios are very sheer and need to be packed im not sure it that is just a different formula or if they were using a primer that had a negative impact. i love these colours they are very intenes and they make my brown eyes look even browner. the only thing is that i didn't like using the yellow as a highlight for the greens so i use the yellow and the two greens seperatley. love these colours would re-buy just slightesly dissapointed because i dont think the yellow complements the green. and a major pro for mac lovers the pan can be depoted and they fit in mac palettes.
it looks like im the only one who actually liked this product i actually love it i like the brush its not like the taditional stiff wolf hair or horse hair or what ever they normally use. its more flexible which does make it less steady to work with but its makes winged application much easier. it does have alot of product on the brush but i just wipe it off on the rim and instead of going to redip the brush i just pick up what i left on the rim the first time. it is very liquidy but i guess thats just personal taste and preferance because thats what i like about it. i saw other people say it flacked alot but i didn;t find that. before this i used cliniques liquid eyeliner and i found that to flake alot.but overall i am very happy with this product and i will be repurchasing it.
i love this for really quick and easy looks i mostly use it by its self with a little white in the corners of my eyes and it really makes them pop. because its a pencil its really quick. it can also be used as a base for other shadows i've only dont this a couple time but its really versatile im sure if you bought a pink one it could double as a lip colour or cream blush love it and will def be picking up a couple more
this is my favourite macara it even beat out great lash and diorshow. the brush is awsome and the fibers really do make your lashes longer. this is def my favourite all time mascara and ill use it for life :)
this is such a sad review because i love the colours i bought one to see how i liked it before i bought more and luckily i did because they were horrible to work with the container is so small and the mouth of the container could barely fit a q tip in it i had to pour some out on a pallet to get it on my brush and it made such a mess it was all over my face. it was so pigmented i got pearl rust (or somthing like that) and it barely stuck to my eyelids if your good at pressing pigments then they would be great for you but other then that i wouldn't waste my time or money im def not going to buy another one of those again
Eye Shadow -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Luminous Shadow -- After Midnight

love the colour and i love mostly all of they're colours like the formula on all of the shades that i own except one (too too pink) i notices that it wears off very easily not even mid i find myself wanting to reply. thats my favourite colour so i was not impressed but overall good product find the applicator a little tricky so i use my regular shader brush.
Concealers -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Spot Concealer
ellesluvsmac 7/19/2008 11:24:00 PM
its not a bad concealer for under foundation but i bought it in the hopes of using it only with the almay clear complection pressed powder i need alternatives for the summer time when liquid foundation is just too much but i was really dissapointed at the finish it made my skin dry and it also amplified the dryness it made the flakes stand out and the colour selection is horrible theres only three. i bought the lightest shade and its still too dark for me. and as for its effectiveness to clear acne i didn't see an improvent from what i was using before (revlon colourstay concealer) overall not impressed wouldn't buy it again
Powder -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Medium [DISCONTINUED]
ellesluvsmac 7/19/2008 11:13:00 PM
i love this product i didn't beleive it when people told me it was a flawless finish but it really is. its perfect for the summer when its too hot and humid for a liquid foundation, it gives enough coverage with some concealer and then im good to go. the only downside to it is that its expensive its like 30 canadian but for a powder with that much coverage and a beutiful finish its worth it :)
pros: noxzema so its good for acne prone skin its cheap (7$) cons: orangy colours (im really fair mostly the lightest shades of all collections are wat works for my but even the lightest one (ivory 105) is still really orangy) doesn't blend well into skin looks like ur wearing makeup smells bad, usually i like the smell of noxzema but its way to strong in the foundation (its not so bad in the pressed and loose powders in the clean make up collection) not the best coverage horrible packaging not easy to despense overall it just didn't do the job for me it had a horrible make up looking finish for like 7$ its not bad you get what you pay for. i wouldn't repurchase
