Terrible! I really wanted to like this nail polish. It sounds great doesn't it? A quick drying nail polish in such fun summer colors? Don't waste your time. The formula is thick. Like previous reviews have stated, it takes 2 coats because it's streaky on the nails. As it dries, it starts to bubble. After it is completely dried, it peels off like kid's nail polish. I love the color, but what good is it if it doesn't last for more than an hour? Try their Extreme Wear line. Those polishes hold up much better.
I really wanted to like this cream. My mother used this all the time when I was younger, so the smell of it really brings me back to my childhood. But I made the mistake of buying Ponds Dry Skin Cream without looking at the ingredients and where it was made. Apparently this one that is made in Mexico is different from the ones made in the USA. Long story short, I broke out sooo badly from it. (I don't even have sensitive skin. I also never break out and have tried many different moisturizers with great success.) I literally had facial hives. The swelling and itching was unbearable. Please be careful when you get this! http://www.walgreens.com/store/catalog/Lotions-and-Creams/Dry-Skin-Cream/ID=prod2116395-product?V=G&ec=bz_&srccode=cii_67192775&cpncode=23-124072616-2
These are awesome! I love the packaging. I have been using the $1 ones by ELF. Those are good too but I need 2-3 sheets to take care of my face. I also have a really hard time taking just ONE sheet out. But these blotting linens are packaged so nicely it's so easy to remove just one sheet. With that said, the blotting sheets are so large, I only need one to blot my entire face. I also love the smell of green tea on these. Will definitely repurchase again when I'm done.
Eye Shadow -Too Faced - Lockdown Cream Shadow - Prisoner of Love
katzy619 1/20/2011 6:20:00 PM
I got really lucky and picked this up for $5 this year during their Vintage Sale. With that said, even if it was full priced I will buy this product again! It's just as good as TFSI or UDPP but has a nice sheer shimmery pink color. It's like the best of both worlds. I use this under a lot of my pink/purple shadows to make the colors pop. I haven't had any problems with creasing or fading. It makes my cheaper shadows (Wet n Wild, ELF, NYX) all look and feel like the higher end brands. I hope they won't discontinue this!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Sweet as Candy
katzy619 1/20/2011 6:14:00 PM
Wet n Wild is definitely stepping up their game. I have heard so many gurus on YouTube rave about their new eye palettes so I decided to give these a try. This week Rite Aid has BOGO for all Wet n Wild products so I snatched a few palettes up. This one was my favorite! Like what most have said, I can see this palette to look most flattering on Fair to Medium skin tones. The quality of these shadows though, are excellent! The colors go so well together. The pigmentation and staying power are wonderful. Granted I use a good shadow primer (Too Faced Lockdown in Prisoner of Love), so I haven't had any problems with creasing or fading. I love pairing this palette up with Wet n Wild's Cream Liner in Eggplant. Overall, this is a really good go to for a fresh, quick, and easy daytime look.
Blush -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Blush in Peach Satin ] ] [DISCONTINUED]
katzy619 12/13/2010 6:06:00 PM
I just bought this product on a whim and I'm so glad I did. The product is so light weight and easy to blend. The color looks really pretty on. It's subtle and pretty hard to overdo. It gives your skin that perfect flush like you just came back from taking a brisk walk in the cold. I can see it being a bit too sheer for medium to dark skin tones. I probably won't be able to use it in the summer when my skin is tanned but it's great for giving your skin that healthy glow and some color in the fall/winter. I also love that it almost feels moisturizing which is also a plus because my cheeks tend to get dry in the winter. I will definitely repurchase this and other colors as well.
Masks -Bliss Labs - Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask
katzy619 1/19/2009 1:00:00 AM
This mask works very well for me. I work night shifts at a hospital. Staying up all night can be really bad for your skin. I make it routine to use this mask when I get home after working a night shift. I find that I like it best after I get out of the shower. I don't bother patting my face dry with a towel, I just apply this mask and it fizzes up in a few seconds. I let the steam from the shower help this mask work. After a mere 5 mins, I rinse it off gently and I put on my usual moisturizers (or nowadays since it's so cold, my face creams). My skin looks very nice after using this and I will continue to use this product for a quick pick me up after work, or when I go out. Once a week, I exfoliate with St. Ives apricot scrub and use this right after. The results are amazing. It's not very cheap nor is is super expensive. For $52 you can get a lot of uses out of this. Sure beats going out to get a facial every week. Hope this helps!
The only thing I like about this eyeliner is the packaging. It's so sleek. Everything else about it is mediocre. I have this product in black and plum. Plum kinda looks the same as black if you ask me. It was really good when I first used it. But it dried out so quickly. I think I only got like 5 or 6 uses out of it and it was dried out. For $1 it's still very good, but you'd have to keep getting these cuz they run out so quickly. I don't think I'm going to get any more. I find Covergirl Line Exact a lot better. So I have been using that.
I actually really like this product by CG. It's probably one of the best liquid eyeliners for beginners. The felt tip makes application so easy and the formula is very quick drying. After it dries, it becomes smudge free which I love. The packaging is tiny which is also a plus, makes it great for traveling. With practice you can make bold, dramatic lines, or thin lines for a natural look. I don't have a problem with this product drying out on me. I cap it tightly after each use and I shake it a bit before applying it. I would definitely get this again. Prior finding this product I was using ELF eyeliner pens. Now THOSE dry out quickly and they're really not that great.
I am a collector of purple nail polishes and this one is one of my favorites! I love the color, it's a shimmery lavender with just the right amount of sparkles. The sparkles are also very fine so it does not look tacky at all. The overall look is so beautiful. Under the right lighting the shimmer is gorgeous! Perfect for any occasion! I also love the brush. It's large and the nail polish applies very easily. I don't have a problem with the polish streaking. Pick this for an easy and long lasting manicure!
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Age Correct Growth Treatment [DISCONTINUED]
katzy619 1/6/2009 9:25:00 PM
This saved my nails! I work in a hospital and the alcohol hand rub has been drying out my nails. They started to peel and when one broke (my nails hardly ever break) it was the last straw. I read some reviews on MUA and decided I'd try this one out. I'm soo glad I did. I love the color. It's so opaque. Gives you an effortless "french manicure" with just one coat. With careful application, this really doesn't streak. But I can see how it might once it dries out a bit. I have only used this product for 5 days and my nails are back to normal again. Strong and healthy looking. I just removed the polish today with Sally Hansen's Moisturizing Formula Polish Remover and reapplied. The polish did not chip or anything, I just wanted a shiny finish again. Hope this helps!
This is my favorite nail polish remover. I have tried everything from Cutex to generic CVS, Duane Reade, and Rite Aid brands. I love this one. It is non-drying, removes polishes quickly and the smell that it leaves behind is so nice! None of that lemon acetone stuff, this smells so fresh and clean. I have been working in a hospital for a few months now and the alcohol hand rub has really started drying out my hands and nails. I use this remover along with Sally Hansen's Age Correct Growth Treatment and I see improvements in less than a week. My nails are nice and strong again. I will be throwing out all my other nail polish removers and will definitely get more of this one once I'm done.
Samples -Everyday Minerals - Free Sample Makeup Kit [DISCONTINUED/REPLACED]
katzy619 1/3/2009 1:54:00 AM
This is a great way to try a new line of makeup! And I must say this line of mineral makeup is awesome! I love the way it feels on my skin. As one of the previous reviewers mentioned, I too use one of the lighter shades of the foundation (intensive formula) as a concealer and it's just perfect. My dark circles are no match for this foundation! I haven't tried my blush yet but I'm excited about it since all the reviews are so positive. I think it's great that EDM gives out free samples like these. It shows how confident they are that their consumers will come back for more. I definitely will.
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
katzy619 12/31/2008 11:56:00 AM
I absolutely adore this bronzer/blush duo. The packaging is very sleek with a large mirror in black casing. It really does remind me of NARS similar to what everyone else is saying. I use both of these separately. The bronzer is perfect for that sun-kissed look. It has just the right amount of shimmer to it. The pink is more shimmery but looks soo gorgeous in pictures or under the sun. It gives you such a healthy glowing complexion. For $3 it's really a steal. I'm inspired to get another haul from ELF's studio line.
This is a very beautiful, shimmery, neutral gloss. I love how there are tiny sparkles in it and how the color looks on my lips. This gloss does have a sweet smell and taste, but it is not terrible at all. The texture of the gloss is so smooth and the color so easy to wear (alone or on top of another lip colour) that I'd get another tube of this as soon as I run out.
