i really love the idea of this hair accessory. the package i got from walgreens for 9.99 comes with 1 large, 1 medium, 1 small bumpits, a comb and an instruction inside. i have a fine, flat hair and i always use the medium one, it fits nice on me and it looks natural than the large one. what i always do i tease my hair first, i just take a section of my hair by the crown of my head and, starting from the root behind the front of the section, i comb downward toward the scalp in short strokes then spritz the section near my roots with hairspray - this will give me the "bump." To hide any tangled-looking hair, i just lightly smooth the top of my hair with a round bristle brush and spray once more (don’t over-spray!). then, i will insert the bumpit. the result, it gives me a precise and nice look. i use this alone, half updo or ponytail. i also use the small one if i want a bump on top of my hair. it doesnt slip on my hair and it stays on me all day which i really love. i dont have flat hair anymore. i gave this 4 lippies 'cause i dont use the large one, it doesnt look natural on me. overall, this is a best buy for me. at first, it's hard to manage but if you get used to it, this is great. just watch the procedures on youtube for clearer outcome.

I bought this 50% off at CVS. I have the nudeshell and this is perfect for me. this is a nude color with a hint of pink and I use this everyday for natural look. I love how matte and how it moisturize my lips. Too bad, maybelline won't carry these lipsticks anymore.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil in Pure White

this white eyeliner is good enough for everyday use. i love how it glides and how smooth it is. i can use it on my waterline and inner corner and it brightens enough but the major complaint is that it doesnt lasts, so the search is still on.. i'll try prestige next.
Liquid -Revlon - SPA Age Defying Foundation [DISCONTINUED]
ias23 6/14/2009 7:21:00 PM
From all the products of revlon this age defying spa line is the only thing I love, love the most! This foundation is totally great.. How great?? Great than any other drugstore foundations... I am 21 yrs of age and I have fine lines,dark circles and some acne scars, when I used it my face looked fine lines free, no dark circles, no scars that it brightened my whole face beautifully.. this is so creamy and light but have full coverage for me, no dryness, no flakes, no breakouts, no visible lines or pores, in short no complaints at all.. I also love the ingredients it has 5.8% titanium dioxide, 3% zinc oxide and pack of antioxidants such as grape fruit extract, mushroom extract, panthenol , soy protein and a lot more. I love the packaging too, easy to use and this is my go-to foundation that it comes with a build-in brush that really applies evenly. No streaks, not brittle-like brush. the tube has a "ON" and "OFF" click so the foundation wont be messy. I just squeeze the tube easily and apply it on my whole face or just some spots i like to cover, actually I can use it as my concealer too, but it is much better with the age defying spa concealer. It lasts longer and longer like no other. They have 8 colors and i got light/medium or 005 that really suits my asian complexion. Overall, all I can say is wow. This is good for everyday use and for summer. Pls revlon, I beg u, don't you ever ever discontinued this line or changed the formula or else I will errr, really disappointed with you...
These lipsticks are great. Love the color selection, especially the pink ones, the coral ones and the natural colors. They are smooth, light but really pigment enough, plus have a nice shine that really good for everyday use without overpowering any look or make it cheap. I hope they make more colors.
for those who like floral scents, this is the one for you. it is like a rose floral scent that is light. i'm not a floral kind of girl but this one doesn't caused me headache or anything like other floral scents, this is kinda relaxing for me. like it! but i love their turquatic most.
from all the fragrances of mac this is what i love the most. it is different, sweet, fresh scent. it is really good for summer that lingers nicely and the scent will be much sexier after a long time.. i also spray this in my wardrobe and it stayed enough. i hope they make bigger size and make more good fragrances. i got this $23 for .7oz, it is bit expensive but worthy. love it!
i love how it cleans my face, it can remove my makeup easily. i also like the tiny bits that gently clean my face and make it soft and hydrated.
i used to use it and the only thing i liked abt this was, it illuminates my eyes. it fades quickly,it makes my lines visible in few mins, hard to blend and it dried my eyes when it fades. totally a mess like other cheap concealers.
Lotions/ Creams -Johnson & Johnson - Green Tea Lotion
ias23 6/12/2009 12:32:00 PM
im using this lotion for a month now and i like it. it has soybean oil, shea butter, vitA, vitE and green tea. Everytime i used it, it gave me a soft, hydrated, baby skin without feeling sticky or gave me white films, it absorbs into the skin quickly. plus, it gave me a dry patches free skin. at first, i dont like the smell, it was too strong for me but after a few use i just get used to it.. i like the prize too so cheap for 14oz, i got this at target.
this is includes in the new edition of milani's polishes and i got it 3.99 at cvs. i love the variety of colors but i bought this, i've been looking for this for a long time.. it is a peach color that really suits my complexion, the color is not so light and not too bold but it is nice for summer.. when i tried it i was disappointed, it doesnt dry fast like other polishes that i've used, it doesnt hold onto the nails and it wears off easily.. i dont knw if it's just the new edition or all the polishes.. i wouldnt buy this again.
Concealers -Revlon - Age Defying Spa Concealer [DISCONTINUED]
ias23 6/11/2009 9:17:00 PM
wow, what a great concealer.. i avoid myself to buy revlon concealers bcoz everything that i've tried before were totally nothing for me but this is the only one i love!! when i tried it i saw a difference on my eyes. first, i like how creamy and smooth it is that it gives me a brightening effect. second, how it covers my dark circles very well without any dryness, cakey,flakes or mask-like, it also doesnt accentuate my lines which i really love. third, it last longer,really, after workout or i stay outdoor for a long time, it was still there. fourth, it is easy to use and i could bring this anywhere. the only down side is, it only contains .04 oz for $11 but good for me, i got this $10 with the foundation at walmart, so it was like free. it was the only one left so i grabbed it right a way.. ^_^ and i always find this bogo in any drugstores. i got 002 which suits my asian complexion. so yea, i would, definitely, certainly and whatever buy this again and again! i'll give this five hearts ♥♥♥♥♥ love it!
i love honey..i use this as my weekly mask with the aspirin and/or lemon ( If water is mixed with honey, it loses its low water activity, and therefore no longer possesses this antimicrobial property.) so i dont ever do this. honey have antibacterial and antiseptic properties that helps acne, scars and wounds reduce. And it really does worked for me.. it helped some of my acne scars and it soothed my wound scar for a month. when i used it, it tightened my skin and gave me smooth skin but for a short period of time, so i need to do this every week. the honey concoction is my alternative for my mint julep masque, for me, the masque is more effective but i love this also.
this is my first mask and i love how it works! first the ingredients, it has Kaolin (second ingredient) it is the mildest of all clays and it is suitable for sensitive and dry skin. It helps stimulate circulation to the skin while gently exfoliating and cleansing the face. it is high in calcium, silica, zinc and magnesium, which are beneficial for oily, blemished skin. The clay's mildly drying and disinfectant properties help heal existing blemishes and inflammations, while preventing new ones from forming. Also has a bentonite(third ingredient) to absorb toxins for clearer complexion. the fourth ingredient is glycerin for extra moisturizing qualities. the fifth ingredient is zinc oxide it is used to treat or prevent minor skin irritations. the down side of this is the sixth ingredient, the propylene glycol which may cause moderate skin irritation like dryness, defatting and mild eye irritation. these may occur but not for everyone. it also have chromium oxide greens to absorb small amount of oil. And the last is methylparaben which may also cause allergic reactions for some. So for those who are sensitive, please, patch test first. second, i love it 'cause it helped my pores smaller, dried my pimples and get rid of blackheads. i know it is drying after use, so i need a heavy moisturizer afterwards. third, the smell is not that bad for me, there's a bit minty smell. fourth, the prize, this is totally dirt cheap for 8oz tube. And i found this at Sally's and CVS. overall, this is amazing mask for me. i really love how effective and affordable it is. i'll give this five hearts ♥♥♥♥♥ love it!
this is my first and only medicated cream for me. i had breakouts and this was the only thing i used for a day and all my acne were gone. i love it 'cause it doesnt cause me white residue on my skin and it dries fast. And the benzoyl peroxide is 10%. great one!
