Eye Shadow -Hard Candy - In The Shadows 5 Shades 024 Temptation
jigababygirl 7/4/2010 1:59:00 PM
I had high hopes for this product. I was let down how the colors werent very bright or pigmented. They are glittery and shimmery dont get me wrong, but they arent as bold as I like. The staying power sucks, I notice it starts wearing off within hours of applying. With a primer, it will stay only in clumps :[ I dont like the packaging the little door/flap thing never stays open, so I am constantly trying to open it back up, the magnet will clamp shut. I am not going to buy this again, but I will try other hard candy products.
Great drugstore nude! I do like this lipstick, although I never wear lipstick because its so drying. This one can be drying but I always put some clear balm over it and maybe some gloss. The color is very nude, but if I put too much, it starts to get peachy instead of beige, which can be frustrating when you are trying to mute out your lip color for those certain looks. I cant find any other drugstore brand that has a color like this, so I am going to buy again.

I was a little disappointed with this. The only thing I loved is how it didnt clump and it was very flexible on the lashes. But I have tried applying this so many different ways, and it keeps happening. It smears! I try to apply it and put my pinky between my lashes and my lid, but it still smears shortly after applying, and throughout the day. I wish this wouldnt happen, but I got this for 5 bucks so I guess its worth the cheap price?

Ok, the only reason why I use this and will keep using this is because it doesnt make me break out. Bad things: It is so hard to blend! Its very easy to look streaky and to have darker areas on some places on your face because of this. Light coverage. Some might like that, or some, like me, want medium. So expensive! I dont think it should be this much for something that doesnt even work that great at coverage. The smell. It smells like suntan lotion. Some people like that, but some dont want to have a fragrance with their makeup. IT TRANSFERS! If I rub my finger gentle on my cheek or my chin, the foundation is right there on my finger! This gets very embarrassing sometimes. The shades are limited. :( The tube is awful, you have to watch how much you squeeze out. Would be better if it had a pump or something else. But anyways, I am going to keep using this until I run out or I find a cheaper product that wont break me out.
Self Tanners -Banana Boat - Summer Color Self-Tanning Mist

first time self-tanning. i bought this because it was the cheapest i could find in the store, around 6 bucks. When i applied it, i sprayed my arms and my neck. all i saw was wetness. so i didnt really know what areas i already sprayed. so some patches are darker than others because of this. the smell was ok, im glad it didnt smell weird! on the bottle it says drying time 5 mins, but at the 5 min mark, my skin was still dewy with the mist. Maybe i put too much on the first application, but it took about an hour for it to completely dry. But it was worth it! The color is so natural looking! everytime i look down and my chest or arms or legs i automatically touch my skin to see if theres a sun burn left over or something LOL. It does not look orange at all, its more of a bronzed look. The only bad thing i can find it that the bottle doesnt last. That first application used up the whole bottle!!! I applied from my head to my feet, and I started to run out near my thighs! But I think its because i want a darker tan, for people who want a sun kissed tan, i dont think theyll run out like me. some people have said that its orange or it doesnt even produce color. but u have to remember to exfoliate before-hand so u have the best chance of getting the most color. But because of the awesome color and the ease of the spray (u got to get the hang of it but its pretty easy when u do) i am excited that i found this. I have never used self tanner mainly because i naturally get tan because of my race, but this tanner matches and tans my skin so impressively. I dont mind buying another bottle or 2, because i really like the tan it gives me, and its way better than tanning beds of course :) the flaws are minimal to me compared to the results it gives! I will buy it again most definitely!!!!!
Treatments -Estee Lauder - Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher

this was given to me as a gift, and i must say that it is a very nice product. It does exactly what it says. i have large pores and am on the oily side. In a matter of days, i started to notice my pores getting smaller. My face felt so smooth!!!!! I loved it! I agree with the other person, if I was rich and had the money, I would definitely buy this!!!! Only bad thing i dont like is the bottle. I hate it lol makes it so hard to get the lotion out when you start getting low lol
Skincare - Face -Estee Lauder - Take It Away total make up remover
jigababygirl 4/12/2010 3:08:00 AM
I wasnt too impressed with this remover. I have used it to remove all my makeup. foundation, eye shadow, ...the works. but really, when you think about it, why pay so much for something you can get at a much cheaper price and does that same job, if not better. i dont use this any more, although sometimes i will use it with a Q-tip to remove some tiny mistakes or smudges that my finger cant get to. but really i wouldnt buy this
hated it. made me breakout. WAY WAY too greasy, gave me an oily look.
i always saw these eye shadows but never bought them. partly because they are about 4 dollars a piece. but i decided to try some. now they are in constant use in my makeup bag lol. the colors i have so far are: -ultra violet -blue moon -angelic -Rogue Flambie -blackstar blue -and a green color not too sure what its named i use angelic the most, mostly as a highlighter. all the shadows are VERY SHIMMERY AND REFLECTIVE. except Blackstar Blue, its more neutral. I have noticed that they dont have the same intensity when applied as they do when looking at them in their pot. But i simply just get my brush wet or apply a primer to help bring out the Color!!!!!!! I love the green when its wet, much more vibrant and i get complimented alot on that color the most. The price is a bit pricey for drug-store makeup. 4 bucks a pot, when just a few steps away you could get a wet and wild Quad for 4 bucks. BUT i think Jesses Girl's eye shadows are better quality. Only bad thing i can say is, beware, they can get MESSY! And can cause alot of fallout and debris on your face, so be sure to get a brush and brush all of it off before u go out!!!!

This product had so much promise but gosh....what a let down. It made me break out so much!!!! and it smells weird. the build in brush into the lid is very awkward and the hair on the brush feel very hard. i was very disapointed with this product, dont recommend at all.
i got this product because its a primer that doesnt have preservatives or fragrances and i needed something that wasnt going to aggravate my skin. and i have to say it works for me. i think some of the people below haven't exfoliated or moisturize their skin enough. thats with any makeup, dry skin and peeling will show through!!! The packaging is really helpful, the 1.0 fl oz bottle i bought has a bulid in pump. and really the directions are right, u only need 1 or 2 pumps. because my experience i pumped about 4 and i applied it and it WOULD NOT dry!!! so really less IS more :) the price is a little bit on the expensive side, on their catalog it says 21 dollars. but if it works for you then it shouldnt matter. And it works for me. I love it!!! doesnt work too well with liquid foundation though lol i tried that and it is indeed best for powder foundation /mineral foundation
At first I thought 16 dollars was a lot to pay for a concealer...but boy was I happy to see that it PAYS OFF!!! This concealer matches my skin perfectly and it covers very well!!!!! I do wish that it was a little bigger and had more of the product in it, since im paying close to 20 bucks for it.
