I bought this color for junior prom because I told my date he could choose whatever color vest he wanted and he told me he picked "bubblegum pink." With those words in mind, I quickly scoured Chanel's website for a matching color. Organdy was the clear choice-it's bright and rich but still very classy. I absolutely love the color and Chanel packaging but have found that it cracks when my finger nails are longer, why I only gave it 4 lippies. It's great on toes though and looks nice in flip flops in the summer. I would probably buy it again.
Eye Makeup Remover -Rimmel - Gentle Eye Make Up Remover

i used this while i was at my friends house and must say that is neither gentle, nor capable of removing tough eye makeup. i used this only once but the skin around my eyes became red and sore within minutes and felt inflamed for 24 hours. i would not recommend this for those with sensitive skin.
Liquid -Clinique - Superfit Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

this product is very nice after application and stays nice for a couple of hours. i found that even with my light moisturizer (boscia) it began to melt in an hour or two (even in the winter!) and could not be fixed with powder or wiping. By the end of the day I could see people staring at my terrible makeup. I gave this foundation 2 lippies because it is a pretty good product if you dont plan on wearing it for very long, or in an area with dark lighting, and is also great to use for photographs.
When I put this foundation on it looked fine and matched my skin nicely. The problem was a few hours later it had melted away and left streaks all over my face. I tried putting a little powder over it but the streaks were still evident. I ended up washing it all off half way through the day and have not worn it since. I guess you get what you pay for. I would not recommend this to anyone who lives in very warm temperatures.
This is the first, and only, eyelash curler i have ever used. It is simply amazing. I use it every morning and it sufficiently curls my eyelashes so the look naturally curled and beautiful. Ever since I have started to use this product people have told me how perfect my eyelashes look. It doesn't crimp eyelashes and when set with a good mascara they will stay nice and curled all day. I will repurchase this product for the rest of my life and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good eyelash curler.
Moisturizers -Boscia - Oil Free Daily Hydration SPF 15

i love the way this product feels after i apply it to my face. the silica in this product soaks up all the oil on my face making it smooth and ready for makeup. the moisturizer goes on light and has a nice bonus of spf 15. the packaging is great and when you take of the cap there is a pump for easy dispensing. overall a great light daytime moisturizer that i will definitely repurchase, even if it is $27 for an ounce.
The product really does not offer much that your lashes do not already have. The applicator brush is tiny making it hard to coat the entire lash, and making the application process take longer than it really should. The formula dries out quickly and clumps very easily. i know many people have said you get what you pay for, but it is not hard to find a good mascara in a drugstore. this product just turned me off to any other maybelline mascaras and i ended up buying physician's formula lash in a tube instead, which i think works fairly well.
Concealers -Urban Decay - Surreal Skin Creamy Concealer

This product does an ok job of concealing my problem areas. it generally covers blemishes well but did not do a good job of hiding my undereye circles and acne scars. The consistancy is a little thinner than i would have liked. i really liked the packaging though, and it didnt make me break out. an ok concealer, but i will puchase something else next because i think there's something better out there.
Loose Powders -Clinique - Blended Face Powder in Transparency 3
emilyroseee 3/7/2008 1:31:00 AM
the product is a really great color and matches a variety of skin tones but it seemed to kick my skin's oil production into high gear. though it did not make my skin change color, it was so shiny by the end of the day that it took 3 blotting papers to mop up all the oil. i would not recommend for long wear.
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil
emilyroseee 2/27/2008 10:13:00 PM
this product has a really great smell and taste and also adds a little tint to my lips which is great. i like that it is so small and i can take it with me just about anywhere. i really like this product, but don't think it lasts long enough. it doesn't last through meals and i cant feel after about an hour and a half. other than that, i dont mind reapplying and would buy again.
my lips love blistex. i dont usually wear lipstick or lip gloss, just a little blistex all over my lips and they appear shiny and full without to much attention. they also give you a nice tingly feel. if my lips are especially chapped i put a little on before i go to bed and wake up with soft and refreshed lips. i love it!
