Best eyeliner ever! so easy to apply - glides on very smoothly without skipping and sets to wear all day. Love it! I have teal (very pretty summer shade) espresso and charcoal!
Eye Shadow -Almay - Intense i-Color Eye Shadow smoky-i for browns
jbsjunkie 4/15/2011 4:48:00 PM
This is not your traditional smoky-i look. It's a more like a soft, smoky eye look. If you are looking for a more traditional smoky eye look, try the Trio for Hazels which has charcoal, grey and silver shades. I liked this brown palette for a soft smoky eye look for brown eyes. The texture of the formula is very velvety and smooth. I don't have any complaints at the moment but will re post if I do. Just bought this at Target with a free eyeliner last week! Great deal!
This is like putting lipstick on your lids. The formula is way greasy! and it wears off quickly. Also, both of my sticks broke after only a couple of uses. This is the crappiest package. Don't waste your $$! If you want a good cream shadow. Invest in some MAC paint pots. Those don't crease and blend very nicely on lids.
OMG I'm in love with this mascara! I used it on my honeymoon for 2 weeks straight and I could really tell a difference in the length of my lashes! My lashes felt conditioned and did not fall out as much. I purchased the Blackest Black shade - it was a great carbon black mascara. This stuff really works!!! I will definitely repurchase after this runs out. P.S. to the previous reviewers that are having trouble removing this mascara, use Almay Oil-free eye m/u remover pads. They take off everything and don't irritate my eyes!
I love this mascara! It reminds me of DiorShow which I used for a long time but decided to try something cheaper as I'm on a budget these days. I think people have to manage their expectations...this is not Latisse and the results aren't going to be that dramatic but for me, I used it for about 3 weeks straight and I found that my lashes weren't falling out as much which resulted in longer lashes!!! Even without the growing aspect, it is still a good mascara and at the fraction of the cost of Dior! Love it! & I will repurchase.
Thought this mascara was great! I get the best results on settings 1 & 2 though. Setting 3 gets a little too clumpy. Over all it gives a good clean look on the 1&2 settings and it is good for sensitive eyes/contact lens wearers (which I am) so I will prob repurchase.
Eye Shadow -Almay - Intense i-color w/Interplay Technology- Brown Eye Trio

I bought this product in Trio for Browns - I have brown eyes and dk brown hair. I have to say - I really like it! The peachy color really compliments my brown eyes and the highlighter shade has a beautiful pinky/purple flash in it - (I actually used this all over my entire lid up to the browbone first and then applied the peach shade on lid and dk brown shade as a crease and on the lash line). If you apply it this way I think it gives the best results. The applicator kind of sucks but I always use my own brushes anyway. All in all, I think this is a good product and would purchase again. I'm thinking of buying the green shade as well as I think it would also go w/my brown eyes. The hazel eyes palette looks like it would be a great night time palette too. Oh! and one more thing...the mascara that goes with this is AWESOME! I want to write a separate review for it...It's like Dior show but for a fraction of the price!
I don't know what all the negative reviews are about....I liked this eyeliner. It glides on nicely. I usually do a little bit of a winged look and then put a bit of dark shadow over to soften the look. This also helps if your hands are unsteady and you draw a bit of a crooked line. I still prefer cream gel liners but this one isn't bad...
Lip Treatments -Revlon - Beyond Natural Liptint SPF 15 ] [DISCONTINUED]

The Beyond Natural Lip products are my new fave! I usually use prestige products however, the BN liptint formula is comparable if not better than (bc of the price & scent) the MAC & Bobbi Brown versions! The formula is sheer & moisturizing...like a balm with color and l just LOVE the yummy berry scent. I purchased the Deep Berry & Neutral Pink shades. They go perfectly with my dark brown hair and cool complexion. I think that most of the shades are pretty universal though. This is a must have for the summer! I love the Beyond Natural Cream Lipgloss as well. Will write a separate review.
I looove this eyelash curler! I've already gone through 3 of them. The only thing I don't like is that it's so expensive and you can't buy replacement rubber things...you have to purchase a whole new curler! Revlon's Beauty Shapers curler is very comparable at a fraction of the price.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

I have used oil-blotting papers for many years even before they were available in the U.S. I used to buy them in Japan (I have family there). These C&C ones are good bc they're film type as opposed to just paper. They absorb a lot more oil. I just think they are too expensive when you can get the same thing in Japan for $2-2.50. If you ever have friends visiting Japan tell them to buy the Gatsby flim kind. It's a men's line but but it's the same exact product for a fraction of the price! The women's versions always cost about 50-100yen more...I always stock up when I visit Tokyo.
