i bought this from wal mart for about $7 canaidan. I wasn't expecting it to last a full 24 hours, i just thought the packaging was cute and the shadow would at least last four to five hours longer than a normal powdered shadow. I didn't leave the shadow on all night because i take my makeup off before bed, but it definitely lasted morning until night, no creasing or smudging, and looking just as pigmented as when i put it on. Application was easy, i just used my fingers and swiped it onto the lid. Needless to say, i will be going back to wal mart to buy more of these! they are amazing for the price. and the colour selection they have is pretty good too! :)
I bought this perfume while on vacation a year ago after christmas on sale at a drugstore. In my opinion, it smells great! If you're sensitive to white flower scents you won't like it, but for those who are adventurous and want a new perfume, go for it! it's pretty cheap, and easy to find :) the smell reminds me of jube jubes or something :p which is kind of weird, but it lasts all day and isnt overpowering.
when this product is used properly, it is fantastic. It is very gentle, so it's great on sensitive skin. Plus it doesn't leave weird residues like other chemical soaps or scrubs do. Oh, and it's fun to use! I love using mine. I think the girls at lush reccomended i use a pea size amount, but that didnt do much. I use a quarter size amount and it really does the job.
cons: -smelt like a mixture of wet dog and tea tree oil pros: -got rid of my redness -made my face soft -was inexpensive -one pot will last quite a while i would definately repurchase!
my mom surprised me with this product about a month ago and I've loved it ever since! Im not sure how often im supposed to use it (because i wasnt there when she bought it at lush), but ive been using it about twice a week and its doing wonders for my skin! it smells a little weird, not too bad though and the texture is kinda gross. I can deal with that though because the product is so awesome! It makes my face feel smooth and silky, and gets rid of acne and redness.
i bought this product in may (its august now) for $20. It has lasted me a long time considering how much i've used it. The ocean salt is quite harsh, so i wouldnt recommend it to someone with sensitive skin. I've used this product on my face and legs and it makes them so smooth and they smell amazing afterwards. i really like this product, but it was kind of expensive for an exfoliator (you could get one from the drugstore for only $5).
I bought this product for 5.99 canadian at winners in the makeup/beauty section. I didnt know what to expect because it was my first time using almay products. Needless to say, I'm so happy i bought this product because it is beautiful on the skin and lasts longer than a powdered blush. It has buildable coverage, like the package exclaims. I have the blush in the shade berry (030). i recommend this blush to anyone starting out their makeup collection. I will be using this product every day and would definately repurchase!
Liquid -Calvin Klein - Infinite Hydration Foundation
jillheartsmakeup 8/16/2011 10:52:00 AM
I picked up this foundation at winners yesterday for $9.99 . I was very impressed with the price because the foundation bottle isclassy and pretty. the actual foundation is what is says - very hydrating! I usually have oily skin, but i bought this foundation anyways because of the low price and because of the brand. I will use this product more in winter than in summer, but i'm quite happy with it so far.
bought this in the summer at giant tiger (its cheaper there than at walmart) and im very impressed. I havent been using it that much anymore because i'm lazy, but for the amount i've used it, im amazed. I have stretch marks on my inner thighs and i've had them since i was about 12. They have turned a dark purple colour over the years, and because i'm a dancer, people always see my legs. I've been really self-conscious in the summer as well due to short shorts. I use bio oil on these stretch marks and theyre beginning to fade! pros: -smells good -works -easy to find at stores -inexpensive -lasts a long time cons: -very oily/ greasy i tried to use this on my face for acne scarring, but the bio oil made me break out. I think i broke out because it was too much for my already-oily skin to handle. by all means try this product - it works wonders. thanks bio oil, you're amazing
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Miracle 7 Leave-In Hair Mist

one of my HG hair products! it smells amazing, and does everything it advertises. I'm on my third bottle of this, and i'm so impressed. My mom and aunt have been buying this a few years now, and they still use it religiously. for such an inexpensive product, it works miracles. I definately recommend it to those looking for a good detangler, or something that will make their hair soft and shiny. I use this on wet and dry hair - it didnt make a difference for me. It's amazing no matter what. It just sucks that I cant buy it in canada! or at least not at the sally's near me. But anyways, buy this because its great :)
my mom got a set of this cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and actual tea tree oil for spot treatment for me as a gift from the body shop. I had heard amazing things about this, but i have to say, it isn't a HG product for me. Yes, it cleansed my skin, and decreased my acne, but only slightly. The worst thing about this product is the smell. To me, it smelt like burning rubber - like someone set a car on fire or something! (nasty!) To be honest, i feel guilty my mom spent money on this product. I ended up giving her the toner and cleanser because i couldnt get over the smell. However, I used the moisturizer because there was barely a smell and it left my skin soft and got rid of my acne. The tea tree oil works too, but again, smelt like someone was blowing up a car on my face. the bottles are nice, and my set came in a green bag which i still use. i think this product will work for some people, and will be wonderful if you can get over the smell. And maybe it's a personal thing, because my mom LOVES the smell of this stuff. good luck if you've bought this :) theres my review.
i got this mascara in a two-for-the-price-of-one deal at walmart. at first, i absolutely HATED this mascara, i had run out of my favourite and this was it's replacement. I didnt like the brush and i didnt like the actual product. The mascara was reaallly flakey and my eyelashes always clumped together. By the time i used the second tube of this mascara, it had grown on me. I had used how to use the thick brush without getting the mascara on my lids and under my eyes. it was still flakey, i just didnt care as much. I'm now back to my HG mascara. looking back on this, it wasnt that bad. It was just an average mascara. 3/5 lippies for being average.

cool product. I actually had no idea what it was for, because mine was given to me by my mom. i have it in the colour of natural and i've been using it on my upper cheekbones, apples of my cheeks, and under my brows as a highlight. this product adds shimmer and makes your skin look more glowy. great to wear out at night.
Lip Gloss -The Body Shop - Born Lippy in Raspberry
jillheartsmakeup 2/7/2011 9:30:00 PM
i love these lip glosses! this scent smells very nice and has a really pretty pink tint. These glosses arent sticky (which i loveeee) and stay on for a while. the packaging is decent, and they'll easily fit in any purse. These are on the expensive side, but i think its worth it if you use the whole thing and you like the flavour and scent.
