Received this from my husband on Valentines day. He actually remembered me talking about it! Love it. Has great staying power. Unique bottle design and the black fluid..fab.
Lips -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait
frecklesrock 4/7/2013 10:31:00 PM
I love the colorburst line of lip butters. This color looks great on pale complexions. I use it when I am using a peach blush and it pulls the look together. Just wish it had longer staying power.
This is great. The brush allows you to color each little eyelash. I have the non waterproof and it stays on well. No smudges at all. I knocked it down a little for the packaging as the part you hold (the lid) is a odd shape and not user friendly. Otherwise I highly recommend this. For it to work the best you must do the wiggle and blink method. It will coat your lashes well. I still use a spoolie brush after applying to be extra sure all my lashes are going the direction I want them too.
Eye Shadow -Physicians Formula - Hint of Taupaz eyebrightener

This is a great product if you want a quick eyeshadow and have dark,dull or veiny eyelids. Its not too shimmery it's just right IMO. I have a few wrinkles so I do try to avoid any eyeshadow to sparkly or shimmery but this one does not accentuate my wrinkles. The packaging includes a mirror and a brush that is usuable if your keeping this in your purse. I use a regular eyeshadow brush when I apply it. In a pinch the little brush included is ok. I liked this one so much I just bought the Natural Eyelight color.
I received a sample of this mascara in my Feb Birchbox. Horrible. Dry. Did nothing for my lashes. I thought I may have gotten a bad sample but after reading through the reviews here I don't think I did! I find it hard to believe this would be considered a high end brand?
Lips -Wet 'n' Wild - Jumbo Juicy Lip Balm in Strawberry

I bought this lip balm because I am notorious for loosing smaller packaged lip balms. Figured this larger one won't be so easy to loose. That being said I don't smell or taste any strawberry at all. It glides on nicely and does not feel waxy. Lasts a good amount of time and leaves a nice shine. Wish it did have a flavor though.
Received a sample of this product in my December Birchbox. I would never pay this much for a hair care product so I was really hoping I wouldn't think it was great and then be tempted to purchase it. I tried it tonight, after washing my naturally curly frizzy hair. I took a dab and rubbed my hands together then smoothed it into my hair section my section. My hair is past my shoulders. I left it to air dry. Went back about 30 min later and my hair was frizzed. It wasn't dry yet. So I added a bit more to the frizzy area's. I did read on the package that it also had heat protection in it. Well if it won't keep the frizzies away with no heat used how would it if I used my flat iron? Unless because I am not using a heated styler it's not working? Maybe something happens to the formula when a heat styler is used? I got two freebies so I will try it again when I am going to blow dry and flat iron. So far it's a fail for me.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Single in Brulee

Thank you for this review and the gal who mentioned using this as a under eye circle cover! I have this color and after reading the review immediately tried it under my eyes. SHAZAM it worked. Who would of thought? I have a ton of different cover creams/powders/concealers in my arsonal and am always looking for a better one for my heriditary under eye circles. Never would of thought of trying this eyeshadow as a cover up. Now I am going to stock up on this color.
I cannot remember when I first smelled Pink Sugar. I do know that my first product was the hair perfume. LOVED it. It also helped keep frizzies away. I used it before a holiday party and when I would get hugged almost every person said ' wow you smell good!' That ran out and it took me a while to replace it but I have the perfume now instead of the hair perfume. Again, I love it. Its is the only perfume that I use that my husband will tell me I smell good. I enjoy using it. If you don't like sweet scents it's not the one for you.
I was hoping for a nice coconut smelling shampoo experience. Well I didn't. I have curly frizzy hair and this was not the product for me.
Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Softsilver Rose

I also bought this color after reading the Allure review on it being great for all skin tones. Love it. I would not have bought it if I had not read Allure. In the tube I was hesitant about the color. Once I tried it, I am a fan.
Lip Treatments -L'Oreal - le balm in caramel comfort

I would never had selected this color if it weren't for the L'Oreal website suggesting it after I did one of their 'questionarre's'. LOVE IT. I will agree with others who mention it's not long lasting but I just apply more when needed. It leaves my lips smooth and the sunscreen is a bonus.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush
frecklesrock 9/19/2012 9:06:00 PM
At first application I thought I was going to love it. But then before I knew it it was smudged under my eyes and I don't even use mascara on my lower lashes! EEKKK. I like the brush and how easily it applies but it has no staying power. Bummer
I never would have thought while meandering around the Walmart cosmetics area that I would find a fab concealer in the Hard Candy section! I am always looking for a better concealer so I bought it. It's great for under eye circles, only a tiny bit is needed. I also use it to cover dark marks and acne. Best applied with a good concealer brush. This is buy!
The color does not go with my skin tone. I like their under eye puffyness roller so I gave this product a try. A fail.
