Primer/ Corrector -Rimmel - Fix & Perfect Pro Primer 002

Rimmel Pro Primer did nothing for me. Pretty much a waste of money. No mattifying effect. It did not break me out.
Scrubs -Bath and Body Works - True Blue Spa I'm in the Mood for Scrub
fr3d420 4/3/2012 9:19:00 PM
I had been waiting to try a scrub. So I researched & decided this scrub would be good to try. I used it once & it became HG for me. I haven't tried any other body scrubs. I cannot think of a single thing I would change about this product. The bottle is very easy to use, I was relieved to see that & not one of those little tub thingys. It's also a great package because as other reviewers noted, you do not need a lot (I just use on my legs). The scrubby beads are exactly the right level of roughness for me. Plus there's shea butter in it. Heavenly. The price is high but this will last me @least 6 or 7 months.
I have the Shea & Cocoa Butter variety. I use this almost exclusively on my legs. Always right after a shower, brush teeth etc. for about 5 mins, then throw on some sweatpants. I really really love how soft this makes my legs. My first bottles almost out & I definitely will be getting another. The bottle is a bit annoying but for the results who cares? Putting it into a spray bottle for application makes it a bit easier but usually sprays half the bathroom too.
Lotions/ Creams -Jergens - Overnight Repair Lotion

For me, this moisturizer worked the same as most others. Nothing amazing, but does an ok job on my legs. No strong scent. So far, Johnson & Johnson's Baby Oil with Shea Butter works the best.
Lip Treatments -Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Lip Moisturizer SPF 15
fr3d420 4/3/2012 8:54:00 PM
NONE of the stores around my hometown carry this! I was looking for a really stellar chapstick/lip balm/lip moisturizer/whatever. NFLM had good numbers on here & I love love love the Norwegian Formula Hand Cream (HG for sure). Was't quite as impressed as I was with the hand cream. I really like the tube it comes in, unique & fun. If I could just run to a store to pick this up, I would probably repurchase til I find my HG chapstick. It is a looooong journey but I want one so bad lol. The only thing I like better than this is Blistex Complete Moisture.
Blush -Estee Lauder - Estee Lauder Signature Powder Blush Radiant Kiss
fr3d420 4/3/2012 8:40:00 PM
Like most of the other reviewers, I am pale with cooler undertones. I have tried a couple drugstore blushes, the colors always looked great in the store but on my skin..not so much. I love the color soooo much. This is only the second h/e makeup I've bought & I am very happy with it. Pretty pretty pretty!
Lip Treatments -Blistex - Complete Moisture Lip Balm
fr3d420 4/3/2012 8:33:00 PM
I've re bought this 2 times because so far, it's the best lip balm I've used. Plus it has SPF. I like the way it feels, a couple minutes after applying I can rub my lips together & it's still slick. I like it alot but I wouldn't make the commitment of calling it HG.
Brow Fantasy worked ok for me. It didnt blow my mind but this is only the second brow product I've tried. I got Dark Blonde. Everything was great, pencil & gel. I didn't have any troubles with gel flaking. I think I should've gotten a darker color though. Seeing the mostly good reviews it's gotten on here, I might actually do that now.
This was one of my first HG products! I cannot rave about it enough. I got my first tube @ Wal-Mart. I have Type 1 diabetes & it was in the diabetic supply area, along with other moisturizers aimed @ diabetics. Noticed a quick positive difference. A couple months later they stopped carrying it @ Wal-Mart. I checked 2 CVS's, 2 grocery stores, Ollies, & K-Mart. Couldn't find Flexitol anywhere. Ended up trying 2 or 3 more foot creams. Nothing came close to my Flexitol. Now I get it off of Amazon in 2 packs for around $13. I've done that a couple times now. It seems there's 2 different types/formulas. The tubes are different too. The more yellowish colored one works better than the white, IMO. But either is awesome.
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Megashield Lip Color SPF 15
fr3d420 4/3/2012 7:47:00 PM
First off, I will say I've never owned a lipstick in my life. They just seem too serious & when I glance at them, I don't see any shades that I really want to try. WnW grabbed my attention with "$1 off" coupons wrapped around every tube. Couldn't resist. I actually like the color I got, "It's a Girl". I think if I would've exfoliated my lips first, the look would be great too. I like the added SPF, SPF is important to me. For the price, you have to give them a try.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets
fr3d420 4/3/2012 6:50:00 PM
These are the first oil absorbing sheets I've ever bought but wow they are awesome! I got the CVS brand to try because it was on sale & cheaper. Im going to throw them in my purse & use them every night the second I get off work. My face always feels like theres a million layers of gunk on it bc I work in a greasy kitchen.
Polishes -Nicole - Kardashian Kolors- Kendall on the Katwalk
fr3d420 4/2/2012 8:29:00 PM
Very happy with the color, wear & look of this polish =) This is the first time I've liked a particular color enough to do a review specific to that & not just brand. When I wear it, it makes me think of mermaids. If that makes sense to you, awesome lol. Perfect size of glitter & mix of colors. You won't be disappointed, it's so pretty!
I haven't tried a ton of topcoats but I like this one the best so far. Definitely keeps chips away & is a decent price. I work as a dishwasher. I use a wool scratchy alooot during the day so I reapply every other day or two. I would recommend it to my friends.
Skin: oily Such an amazing value! Mine was around $3.60 @ a grocery store (Giant). The first time I put it on, it burned. Only for a minute or two but ow. I wasn't sure if I wanted to leave it on for 15 mins. I did & really liked the results. I use it every 4 nights currently but kinda wanna use it more. I wouldn't say it is HG, definitely something I will keep buying though.
I really like the staying power of this nail polish. I have Tweet Me & Penthouse Pink. If the pink wears aslong as the yellow, I'll be hooked. I work in a kitchen, doing dishes. I wore Tweet Me, 2 coats no topcoat (feeling lazy!) and had no chips by the end of the night. So pleased.
