Worse nail polish ever. I used it for a french manicure and within a day, it started to chip already. I've NEVER had that happend with any other nail polish. It's ridiculous. The consistency is somewhat thick, for a nail polish. Not ideal for lining the tips of nails because it leaves an obvious ridge. The colour is also unattractive. It's not a nice milky white that you can use for your nails. Instead, it's possesses a harsh blue-grey under-toned that actually resembles cheap white out. Even after applying a pinky topcoat over the entire nail, the french manicure looks really odd. Would not purchase this again.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Length Water Resistant

The water resistant formula is not really effective. I noticed that in humid summer days, the mascara will smudge. However, this product is fine for the drier months. It lengthens and separates your lashes very well. The formula is light and does not clump.
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Aquafina Hydrating Lip Balm

Wow, what a gem! I found this at the Dollarstore - it came in a package of two. I really like the slim and sleek packaging of the tube. It glides on nicely and keeps my lips moisturized. Unlike other lipbalms, you don't notice it when it dries. (Some lipbalms leave your lips noticably drier when the product is gone, thus making you feel like you need to re-apply again and again..... causing you to become "addicted" to the lipbalm). A "must-have" in the winter time!
I have mixed feelings about this product. Pros: Long lasting color; easy to use applicator; small and convenient packaging; and inexpensive. Cons: Stings/irritates my eyelids to the point where my eyes water and get all red. This can be a great product to others who aren't allergic to the formula. I guess it's just not for me.
Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild - MegaSlicks Liquid Lipcolor

I have this in Cherry Glaze. The gloss has a sheer tint of color - best to be used over a lip stain. I like that the gloss is not sticky. It feels like a nice lipbalm that gives great shine. The packaging is great - it is sturdy and doesn't take up much room. I like to have this in my coat pocket so that I can do quick touch-ups when I'm on the go.
Love how smooth and clean this product feels. Unlike some other deoderants, Dove does not leave behind that sticky feeling under your armpits. (Secret is notorious for that. You can feel the deoderant residue even AFTER you shower. There's no way to scrub it off). The hair growth also tends to be slower. Excellent product. True to it's claims. Will definately repurchase again!
I was really surprised at how much volume and length this mascara created. Another good aspect of this mascara is that it leaves your lashes feeling soft (as opposed to being "crispy"). I like to put on one layer of this mascara and finish it off with Maybelline's Colossal in waterproof (to prevent smudging). The results are amazing. It does hold true to its name - they do make my lashes look like falsies.
Great product! The lasting power depends on how you layer it. If you choose to do a sheer wash, it will last about 4 hours. If you go over the lip with the stain a few more times, the stain will be more concentrated and will last you the whole day. To counter act the super dark concentration at the beginning of the day, you can top your lips with a more opaque colored lipgloss. And as the day progresses, you can switch to a more sheer lipgloss to allow the tint to show.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #129 SH Short Handled Powder/Blush Brush

I bought a set of MAC brushes years ago. The blush brush was the first to fall apart. The handle can apart and then the bristles started to thin out after each wash. I was really disappointed by this product. For the amount of money I spent, I expected it to last a bit longer. I have since purchased some other less expensive blush brushes and have really enjoyed them. I would not recommned MAC's blush brush to friends. Don't waste your money on this poorly assembled product.
I love that this moisturizer absorbs quickly into the skin. It is not sticky at all. It will leave your face soft and smooth all day long. It plumps up the skin and gives you a healthy, youthful glow. It is my favorite facial mositurizer.
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Salux Nylon Japanese Bath Towel

This is the best way to exfoliate the body. No need to buy any special exfoliating body scrub. With this product, any body wash is compatible with it. The results: smooth, clean body. It prevents clogged pores and ingrown hairs. This product is an essential.
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
h20liliz 1/29/2011 3:47:00 PM
I bought this thinking that I would need it when I travel to Europe in the summer time. I don't normally use a primer because my lids are not oily. I personally would not re-purchase this again, as I found that it is not very useful. It felt heavy on me and it made it more difficult to blend shadows. To me, it was not a very useful product. I think it actually caused more creasing due to its consistency.
This mulipurpose moisturizer is essential for all households. It works great as a makeup remover. I use at the office to moisturize my hands (which prevents me from getting paper cuts). I use it on my lips and any dry patches that I have on my arms. Vaseline is easily accessible and very inexpensive. I would definately re-purchase again.
I bought this mascara in the 'black' shade. It is one of the darkest blacks that I have come across. It goes on smooth and doesn't clump. However, I don't feel that the brush does a good job at coating all of my lashes. For this reason, I use my L'oreal Voluminous first, and then the waterproof Maybelline Colossal after (to help prevent smudging since it's waterproof and to also give it that very black finsh). If this product goes on sale again, I probably would re-purchase.
I remember reading somewhere that this product is the most preferred mascara among makeup artists. I think this mascara is only suitable to those who want a very suble look. It is definately not a buildable mascara. It doesn't appear to be a mascara that falls under 'lengthening' nor 'volumizing'. It's just a very basic mascara. You can probably use vaseline to achieve the same look. I wouldn't waste my money on this again.
