Kim Kardashian uses this eyeliner and said it's the best, stays on put. So i thought i would try is since i do love how she does her eye makeup. Goes on smooth and soft but smudges!! I end up with racoon eyes after a couple hours!! Im returning this!!
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation
jax4024 8/22/2008 9:17:00 PM
A couple of months ago I tried using make-up-forever and all their foundations felt horrible on my face, yuck! I saw kim kardashian's make up video on her website and thought i would give it a try since her makeup always looks fabulous in pictures and on screen. I noticed the times before I had applied MUF foundations with a sponge and a foundation brush. NO NO NO! After applying it with kabuki brush it made a HUGE difference! You need to apply this foundation with the KABUKI brush to get a flawless look! KABUKI IS KEY!! It is not cakey or heavy, feels smooth and as if i have no makeup on! I just got it today, so I will update if I get any breakouts of if it starts sliding off my face. Oh I came home and took the test by taking pictures with my camera! WOW!! flawless! Comes out great in pictures! Love it! update 8/29: still love it. It can get a little oily on my skin but i just use the HD loose powder over it and stays nice and matte! I have had no breakouts since using it :) Also, I have a picture in my profile after being out all night, and my makeup still looks fresh and natural!
I really wanted to love this shampoo based on the reviews here on MUA. It's smells like a bottle of pure perfume!!! I used a little in the shower and the smell was TOO overpowering! I had to wash my hair out to get the smell out. It still isn't out, this gave me a terrible headache all morning. Why didn't someone warn me?? Too powerful of a smell for me to use. Hopefully i can return this!!!
I love this! Very refreshing and hydrating! No breakouts!! I've tried many toners and this has been the best so far, i love that you can use it as mist during the day.
I love this foundation! I have tried so many foundations from bobbi brown, dior, nars, mac, make up forever...etc. This has a beautiful dewy finish, i usually use a loose powder on top. I tried the chanel mat lumiere and that was too drying for my skin, and vitalumerie was way too oily. I have combination skin and pro lumiere is great! Lasts all day! great coverage! I don't think this will look good if you have oily skin. update: caused me to breakout :( slides off my face after couple hours :( oh well... now im using make up forever (HD) and i love that so far (kabuki brush is key) I took 2 lippies off and i would not buy again.
Skincare - Face -Boscia - Clear Complexion Kit with Botanical Blast
jax4024 4/7/2008 4:36:00 PM
I was very disappointed with this, I really wanted it to help clear my mild acne. The cleanser smells really nice, however it is too drying for my skin. I only used this kit without any other products on my face because i didn't want any other effects of other products on my face. After a couple days of use I got a huge cystic pimple on my chin, yuck! and the pimples on my forehead still stayed red (i didn't touch them at all). I also got blackheads and clogged pores all over my nose. I used this for 2 weeks, but i think i've had enough. I am sad, hopefully i find something to help out with this acne.
Shampoo -Phyto - PHYTOLACTUM Gentle Shampoo with Almond Milk extract

At first I wasn't too excited about this shampoo...it was nice but nothing amazing. I think i was using too little for my long thick hair, so i started using a little more..But now, after 2 weeks later I have seen my hair improve a lot!! It looks and feels soooooo soft! No residue! I think it treated my hair from the inside out! I really love this shampoo!! I've tried soooo many diff kinds of shampoos, from very expensive to very cheap. I love this one!
Moisturizers -Chanel - Hydramax + Moisture Boost Cream [DISCONTINUED]
jax4024 3/24/2008 3:15:00 AM
Only been using it for a week so far, and i love it! Hydrates my skin leaving it fresh, takes a few minutes for my skin to absorb. No breakouts so far! I have combination skin and this product works great on my skin! I can already see some improvements!
I like how it comes in a nice glass bottle. And it smells like lavender and cucumber. Very nice, it feels like i just out of a spa. However, it does nothing for my face! I have combination skin and get breakouts once in a while. There was no improvement in my skin, it's just a waste of money. Luckily i was able to return it and get my money back.
It lathers up nice, but i didn't like this face "soap". It left my skin too dry and squeaky. I have combination skin. I feel like it wasn't anything special for my skin. I used for 3 weeks and saw no improvements in my skin. I was able to return it and get my money back.
Liquid -Bobbi Brown - Oil-Free Even Finish Foundation SPF 15 [DISCONTINUED]
jax4024 3/15/2008 8:45:00 PM
i got a sample of this, and I did not like it at all. It was too sheer, didn't cover up any blemishes or discolorations. It doesn't blend well and has a weird texture to it while applying. It end up drying my face and leaving little flakes and lines on my forehead and eyebrows. It didn't last that long, even after i applied powder! I will not repurchase this again, I didn't like this and i didn't like the foundation stick or oil-free compact from bobbi brown.
Crème -Bobbi Brown - Oil-Free Even Finish Compact Foundation
jax4024 3/15/2008 8:40:00 PM
I really hoped this one would work out better for me and have a more lasting effect, since i had tried the bobbi brown foundation stick and that was no good. Both rub off! Unfortunately, it didn't have good coverage or last for more than 2 hours. Not worth the money! I will not repurchase this!
I was able to find an exact color of my skin tone. Most foundations ive tried always have a pink undertone, and i have more of a yellow olive undertone to my skin. Bobbi Brown has a lot of neutral colors and it's easier to find a good match. Its goes on really nice and blends very well, however, this foundation rubs off!! It doesn't last for more than 2 hours! I will not repurchase again.
I purchased this because i had my makeup done at a bobbi brown counter and i loved it when it was applied. I kept using this bronzer on top of my foundation and I would apply some blush on top, and i didn't find it too amazing.. However, when i used my foundation and only applied the bronzer i loved it!! It has a natural glow, looks like i've been kissed by the sun. I like using just the bronzer now without the blush! Gives it a nice summer look!
I first got a sample from their website to try their shampoo and conditioner. The sample lasted about 3 washes. My hair felt silky and smooth so i decided to purchase the entire bottle. However, after a week of using it my hair felt oily and weighed down after the 1st week of using it. My hair was falling out, and i got an itchy scalp! I usuallly work out everyday and i was my hair in the morning and in the evening after workout..usually after working out i just use warm water and some conditioner so i won't over dry my hair. This conditioner left a residue! yuck! Usually towards the end of the day i feel like washing my hair because it feels so residuey!
