Skincare - Body -Sally Hansen - Airbrush Legs in Light Glow
julieejuicee 3/13/2013 8:26:00 PM
I used this yearssss ago in high school and it was great! I used to be embarrassed of my legs since I always wore jeans or pants, so my legs were pale but the rest of my exposed body was really tan. I also had some in-grown hairs and bruising. Homecoming/Prom came around and I used this and no one could tell that I had anything on my legs. It blended in seamlessly and never transferred. I would moisturize first then rub this on and make sure it was even. Loved it. Such a lifesaver if you're self-conscious about your legs.
I love this conditioner and I really want to try out the shampoo. My hair is really damaged from bleach. I used a lot of protein treatments to get it feeling normal again, but after awhile it seemed to become ineffective since I overused it...so I knew I had to use something moisturizing. Most other conditioners I used were too heavy and made my hair greasy and STILL tangled, but this one is perfect. It smells really great and clean. It makes my hair feel soft and not all rough. It's a nice, effective product that is actually worth the price IMO.
I actually really like this, and I wasn't expecting to. I'm a medium skin tone and I usually like peachy blushes on me, but this came with a kit I bought so I was like eh why not. It looks great, like a natural pink flush. It does dry very quickly, but I usually brush it on one cheek, blend it out with a brush, then proceed to the next cheek so that it doesn't have time to dry and streak lol. I like that it looks so natural, but I have to use it right after I apply my foundation so that my skin isn't too dry yet so it applies smoother. It lasts a long time, but it lasts even longer if you apply a blush on top (Which I only do when I go out at night because it's wayyyy too strong for daytime). Although, on my lips I hate it! My lips are pretty pigmented so when I do apply it, it takes a few layers to show up and when it does, it looks like I sucked on a cherry lollipop all day and it isn't flattering lol it's too reddish. But on my cheeks it's great especially when I do very natural makeup.
Ummm these lipsticks are amazing, and I wish I found them sooner! I always thought I could never wear lipstick because almost all the ones i've tried, high and low end, were so drying on my lips or they would separate on my lips and look soooo bad after a few hours. My lips are chapped a lot, and lipstick would just emphasize it. I saw the good reviews on these lipsticks and gave it a shot since they were so cheap. They're actually really pigmented, they don't emphasize flakes (except the really light colors), they feel nice and non-drying, and also have a nice selection of warm toned colors. I have one color i'm not fond of (Pink Suga') but it's so cheap that I don't feel bad about it lol. I'm excited to try more colors! The packaging is a little sucky, so I might just depot them.
It's. So. Pretty. Haha it really is! I got this on Hautelook since I haven't been as lucky as others to find this at TJ Maxx or Ross. I'm warm toned and on the medium tan side, and this looks so great on my skin. It's a nice golden sheen that isn't glittery, but gives off a nice glow. I don't use this as a bronzer though, it's more like a highlight/blush deal that just gives a pretty glowy color to your face. You could use it as a eyeshadow too. It's not chunky at all, and glides on really smooth. And it's huge! I would buy another, if I ran out...but it will probably last me forever lol.
Conditioner -Suave - Keratin Infusion Color Care Conditioner
julieejuicee 10/12/2012 2:21:00 PM
I have really damaged hair from bleaching it multiple times over a few years. I've had to cut my hair short, but the ends are still damaged. It's hard for me to find a conditioner that won't make my hair feel weighed down and greasy and that will allow me to actually comb through my hair without difficulty. Anyways, sometimes I stay at my bf's place and he doesn't use conditioner so I had to go out and buy one really quick. I saw this and decided to try it and ermahgerd it's amazing. My hair hasn't felt this good in awhile. I use protein treatments in my hair every week or so and that's the only time my hair feels nice, but with this, it feels great everyday. I can comb through it finally without snagging my hair on the brush and when i'm done styling it, it feels super soft. It also doesn't feel heavy or greasy. It's better than my joico kpak daily conditioner, which is way for expensive. So glad I decided to try this! EDIT: It's been a few months and I think my hair got used to this particular conditioner :( so it doesn't work as well anymore. But that's just my hair.
I got a large sample tube of this. I have been using it for about 2 weeks or more, and I like it a lot! I don't have sensitive skin, so I use this everyday and I haven't had any adverse effects. At first I thought it wasn't doing anything and it seemed too gentle. But then, I got a huge pimple (hormonal) and it went away MUCH faster than usual. I don't have acne that often anymore, but when I do get a breakout, it's a big one, and right in the middle of my forehead lol. It usually takes 2 weeks for it to clear up. But since I was using this, it went away in 3 days! Also, if I feel a smaller pimple coming, it doesn't come up at all when i'm using this. My skin also looks brighter and much smoother. I usually don't spend a lot on skincare products, but when this sample runs out, i'm definitely buying the full size if I keep getting such great results. EDIT: I've been using this a few months now, and it's still amazing! I have a lot less breakouts than usual and my skin has just been really good lately. And the full size bottle is expensive but does have a lot of product! I use about a dime sized amount every other day, so it seems like it will last at least 8 months. Loveee.
Powder -Lancome - Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup
julieejuicee 10/6/2012 11:46:00 PM
I've used this on and off...I never realized how good it was until I recently started using it again. My mom bought this for me because she wanted the free gift and didn't need anymore makeup lol. I got matched to the color Matte Honey III, and it matches my skin tone pretty well. The smell is a little strong, but I don't mind it too much. The finish is nice, never too powdery or cakey. It doesn't leave a white cast when I take photos, which a major plus! I do get slightly oily and this does help, although it doesn't last a long time but it's easy to reapply. It's just an overall really nice and soft feeling powder that does what I need it to and matches my skin. It is a little pricey, but with the free gift with purchase, it isn't too bad. It's better than most other powders i've tried, so i'll stick with it!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
julieejuicee 10/2/2012 6:48:00 AM
I've been using this for about 2 years now. It's definitely my favorite primer. I've used the TFSI and it works well too, but the UDPP lasts longer on my eyelids. I didn't realize how much of a difference using primer made until I started using this. I never heard of primer before, and used to just use liner and eye shadow on its own, and it ALWAYS creased or smudged...and the outside corners of my eyes would have melted looking eyeliner at the end of the day. I thought it was because my eyeliner was cheap, but even with cheap eyeliner, UDPP makes it stay in place with no smudging. I'm sooo happy I found this. It's made so much of a difference in my makeup routine.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Eden
julieejuicee 10/2/2012 6:24:00 AM
I have the original and love that one, but I don't really like this. It's a drier formula and it's hard to blend out. I also like putting primer a little underneath my eyes for my bottom liner, but I can't with this because the color is too light and looks chalky. I just don't prefer to use it. I only got it because I ran out of the original and needed a new one and this one happened to be on sale...but i've only used it a handful of times. I also noticed it made the colors I used turn out a little off. I'll just stick to the original.
It's ok. I ran out of mascara and had to buy another one and this was on sale. While it does make my lashes look thicker, i'm not a fan of the formula. It's clumpy and if I put on a little too much it starts to flake off. The brush is also a little larger than i'd like. I don't always curl my straight eyelashes because i'm lazy lol but I feel like this only looks good if I do curl them. I wouldn't buy this again, there are other better mascaras out there.
Tinted Moisturizer -TheBalm - BalmShelter Tinted Moisturizer
julieejuicee 9/30/2012 6:32:00 AM
I really love this. I was on a foundation kick for awhile but I realized sometimes I just look too made on a daily basis and I wanted something that looked more natural. I got this in the color Medium and it matches my skin perfectly! Most of the foundations I have are a little off, so I was happy to have something that matched me spot on for once. It's super easy to blend and covers better than other TM's i've tried, but I still have to use some concealer for dark spots. It gives a dewy finish so I just use powder over it. It looks like my skin, but better which is what I was looking for. The only thing is that it doesn't seem to last very long on me, but I do live in a humid climate so that's probably why. And unfortunately, I can't find it in my local stores, so I have to purchase it online. Other than that, it's overall just a great TM for everyday.
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
julieejuicee 9/6/2012 11:22:00 AM
I got the XL size on Hautelook for $18. I didn't want to shell out $30 for the bottle lol I kept waiting and waiting for months to see if there would ever be a sale and voila! But my only regret is that I didn't get two bottles! I usually spray 2-3 sprays on my face then spray some on a flat top brush and pat my face with it. I got compliments on my skin, which is amazing. It got rid of the powdery look on my face and made it look dewy, not oily. It just made my makeup look sooo much better! As for the staying power, my blush didn't really last any longer than usual...but my foundation looked decent. It didn't look like I just applied it, but it was still clinging on. I didn't look oily, which is usually the case at the end of the day, so that's a plus. The spray doesn't feel drying and didn't break me out. It does a good job, but I think I would only buy it again if it were on sale hehe but since I have the XL it should last awhile!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow
julieejuicee 8/14/2012 9:50:00 PM
I bought this on a whim and i'm really happy I got it! I have Bad to the Bronze, and I use it almost everyday now. I don't use primer underneath because it makes it look streaky and patchy. It doesn't need primer anyways because it lasts forever on its own. It doesn't crease at all, and it's a beautiful base for a lot of neutral colors I have. I just love it and there's nothing bad I can say about it.
I used the Redken Extreme Deep Fuel and that worked better than this, but got discontinued :( But this is still an excellent protein treatment for my hair. It's been bleached and colored wayyyy too much. I'm Asian and I tried to go blonde-ish lol. But anyways, this stuff works so well for me. I use it once a week, after I shampoo and I use a deep conditioner afterwards. The days I use this, it makes my hair feel sooooo soft and it feels like how my hair used to be before I damaged it...lol. It's cheap too, i'm on my second bottle as well. BUT, I noticed that every time I buy it, there's only one bottle left in the store, so it might be hard to obtain since it seems like a popular product. If you like it, you might want to stock up! Love this stuff, my hair would be a mess without it and I would probably end up cutting it all off if I didn't have this!
