Eye Primer -NARS - Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
fashionlover7 11/11/2011 11:37:00 PM
Okay soooo initially I was on the UDPP bandwagon , but that was my first primer so I didnt know any better. After admitting to myself that UDPP was not my HG , I saw a youtuber review this and decided to give it a try. It is GREAT!!! My eyeshadow stays on all day even on a hot day. Its expensive , but if your not happy with your current primer you will be very pleased and you wont have to deal with the UDPP Genie bottle that holds half of your product hostage ;) .............
I was not impressed with this product. I was looking for something to give t my makeup a natural look (none cakey) you know, the look that says I didn't just spend 20 minutes doing my makeup lol. Anyway, this just makes my skin feel dry and tight, I guess I will purchase MAC's fix + because this product did not deliver....NEXT!
I really love lashes! I dont like wearing fake lashes, but I love mascara and I have tried fast lash. okay on to the review....this is the BEST lash extender ever!!! Its really easy to use and it works! It makes my eyelashes look super thick and long. It really looks like I have lashes on and I love it! If you like over the top lashes its work the buy. Novice makeup wearers might fine the application a little tedious.
This is an every day gloss for me. The gloss gives me a hint of pink and brightens my NW45 skin tone.
Bronzers -LORAC - TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer
fashionlover7 4/9/2010 6:16:00 PM
I wanted a body bronzer that would give my NW45 skin a natural glow. I had been pondering over Body Bling by Scott Barnes but I didnt have time to wait for it to come through the mail since spring break was around the corner. I went to Sephora and tried on a few body bronzers and decided on this one. Its great! My boyfriend loves the smell and it actually blends well with my perfume. It looks subtle enough for daytime yet sexy enough for night! I knocked off one lippie because it rubs off a little ( I wouldnt use it if I was planning on wearing white) other then that its great!
Lotions/ Creams -BeneFit Cosmetics - Bathina Body So Fine

This review is for Bathina "take a picture... it lasts longer" Please dont waste your money! It is pink scented vaseline. Of course, those are not the ingredients listed, but thats what it looks like. The fragrance smells like an old lady and the "shimmer" is more of a gloss that can be achieved by rubbing vaseline on your skin if you so chose. As you can tell I so regret this purchase!
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Black Out Mascara
fashionlover7 3/14/2010 12:57:00 AM
I purchased Dior Show and was very disappointed. Diorshow Black Out however is marvelous. It makes my eyelashes look over the top, which I love. If your going for the natural look this is not for you, but if you like dramatic lashes you've got to try it! In my opinion it appears to thicken and lengthen my lashes.
I love this cheek and lip stain! It is expensive but it lasts all day and the color is beautiful so its worth it. I actually have a powder blush thats similar to this color by MAC called "pinch me." I love the color but I thought the powder accentuated any pores or flaws I had that day and you know I dont want to do that! The posietint gives a very natural look on my NW45 skin. I chose this color because I like more of a natural kinda look and when I glam it up I like more of a barbie/babydoll look ( bright eyes lots of lashes natural slightly glossy lips) Anyway I love this product , I suggest you try it on first because unless you have really fair skin the cosmetologists will often direct you to the redder version but it looks unnatural on my complexion although I am chocolate brown :)......... Go ahead a pay the $28 you'll be pleased with the product and you'll look happy!!
Misc Beauty Tools -Clarisonic - Pro Skincare Brush
fashionlover7 1/15/2009 7:28:00 PM
I wanted to wait until I had used the brush for a few weeks before I left a review. I got the brush about 3 weeks ago. They have really great service. I paid for 2 day delivery and there was a storm in the area where the brushes are shipped from so they upgraded my shipping to 1 day for no additional charge. Now on to the review.....My skin is gorgeous!! I just started really seeing results this week. My skin is very clear, my pores are smaller and my face just has an overall glow. I still use the same face care regimen I did before the brush, but I use the brush at night for 2 minutes. I started out using it in the morning and the night but my face seemed over stimulated it didnt know whether to wanted to be dry or oily so I cut back. I still get pimples some time but they go away a lot faster then before. If you can save the money or catch clarisonic when they will split the payments into 4 .....you should buy it...you wont regret it!
Bronzers -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish - So Ceylon [DISCONTINUED]
fashionlover7 11/21/2008 10:06:00 PM
I love this bronzer. I am NW45. It gives me a great natural looking glow and makes my skin look flawless. I normally where a benzoyl peroxide cream under it so I wont break out. Its a little expensive, but worth the money and should last a long time unless you completely O.D on bronzer...which really wouldnt be cute lol ......okay after a few wears I think this is too shimmery for my face but looks cute as a body highlighter.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Deviant
fashionlover7 11/21/2008 10:00:00 PM
Well...I am a product junkie so I have lots of colored eye pencils. The majority of them are by MAC. Most of my colored eye pencils look black from a distance but this pencil is a really pretty blue that looks like its true color. I really love it because its makes my eyes pop. It doesnt smudge and last all day especially when used with UDPP. I will def. repurchase.......I think I'll try the plush purple next!
Mascara -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - fast lash
fashionlover7 11/8/2008 12:34:00 PM
I have a love hate relationship with fast lash. The white fibers go everywhere, which really annoys me, however, it really does work. It gives me the look of false eyelashes REALLY long and full. I wear this when Im going out to a club or a special date. The black mascara that comes with it doesn't work very well so I normally use my regular mascara which is double extend loreal or double extend beauty tube by loreal. Anyway, Its work purchasing if you like over the top lashes. I took off one lippie because of the messiness of the fibers.
Mac blush in pinch me looks gorgeous on my NW45 skin tone. I was surprised that the color looked nice on me but its pretty versatile. When applied lightly it looks really natural and brightens my whole face. I gave it 4 lippies because I cant apply it as much as I like because I'll break out. Whats the point of glowing if you have pimples! lol...Anyway the fact that I break out has more to do with my skin and not the blush.
I heard a lot of great things about this mascara, so I was excited to try it. Unfortunately, I was disapointed. My lashes did look full and it gave them nice length, but the results were the same results I get from using Loreal Double extend in Carbon Black. I would not repurchase. Also, it didnt last as long as cheaper mascara's. It became clumpy and dry too quickly.
I've been using cetaphil off and on for about 5 years. Its so plain and it doesn't foam or anything, so , since I'm a product junkie I sometimes fo for more exciting and expensive cleansers. However, I always come running back to cetaphil. I never breaks me out and it allows me to use my various acne creams without over doing it, since it is so gentle. I usually use a face brush to really work it into my skin, otherwise it doesnt leave you with that clean feeling that I love so much. I recommend it if you use other products its great at keeping your skin balanced.
