Lipstick -Unlisted Brand - Cherry Crush Natural Lipstick Bella
keithy 1/13/2010 2:31:00 PM
I purchased this lipstick off a website, I found it when I was looking for an actually natural lipstick. This one was rather cheap for a natural lipstick, it was around 8.99, plus I loved the color, so I decided to try it and I am so happy I did! The lipstick itself is creamy and moisturizing, yet lasted a very long time on my lips. Smells slightly like vanilla, and the color is wonderful but unique everyday color- metallic light mauve with tiny gold particles. I plan on getting more colors soon, because the price is great and it has cocoa butter, jojoba oil,apricot kernel oil,and grapeseed oil-I almost want to eat it.
Fragrances -LUSH - Honey I Washed the Kids Solid Perfume
keithy 1/13/2010 2:21:00 PM
First, I want to say that this review is for the solid perfume version. Smells almost exactly like the soap, except to me it smells slightly sharper. Whenever I use it, it always puts me in a happy and relaxed mood. The tiny pot lasts a while, even if you reapply it often, which I do because the staying power leaves something to be desired to me.
This is my HG shampoo from Lush. Smells amazing and uplifting, lathers a ton, makes my hair feel very clean and fresh. Also, it comes in a convenient little puck, which is not only a lot more eco-friendly than having a bottle, and also saves a ton of space when traveling. Not to mention that it looks so small, but actually lasts forever-I have long, curly hair and it lasts me for at least 3 months. Bottom line: highly recommended.
I was not sure about shower jellies-I liked the concept, but I was not sure if I'd like it when I tried it. Well, I did like it-gorgeous smell (musky and girly, and stays on the skin after showering), awesome purple color, makes a ton of bubbles. Seemed like the piece I got would not last me a very long time, but actually, you only need a small pinch to make a lot of lather, which is why it lasted forever.
Perhaps my HG eyeshadow! Firstly, the tube looks really small but actually lasts forever, as does this wonderful cream eyeshadow. Generally, I cannot use cream eyeshadows ,even with primer, I have the oiliest eyelids ever. However, I can wear this one even without primer and it lasts at least 4-5 hours, as opposed to half an hour for all others I have tried. In addition, the color is an amazing shimmering, yet natural-looking amber color. This was my first color that I got, and after loving it so much , I got three more colors. This is still my favorite though.
Lotions/ Creams -LUSH - Soft Coeur Massage Bar (The Honeymooner)
keithy 1/13/2010 1:46:00 PM
Mmm, love this massage bar, definitely my favorite and I have tried almost all of them. Smells absolutely heavenly, like sweet honey and toffee, very foody, and very reminiscent of Honey I Washed The Kids soap. The cons, are the price, which is 7.95 for a 30g massage bar, also, I am not very fond of the chocolate pieces inside.
Polishes -Rimmel - Rimmel Lasting Finish 399 Black Satin
keithy 1/13/2010 1:40:00 PM
I really wanted a black nail polish, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money on one, so I decided to try this one- I believe it was around 2.99. I am extremely impressed with this one-applies evenly, gorgeous shiny black color,last a very long time-unbeatable for this price!
I have many colors of the lipgloss and I love them all! The first one I bought was when I was 16,around 10 years ago and it quickly became a staple in my makeup stash. It's light, slightly sticky, very shiny,smells wonderfully (that indescribable,awesome Bourjois smell), the brush applicator is very convenient and allows for a very precise application. Overall,highly recommended.
Bath Treatments -Agent Provocateur - Bubble Luscious (Bubble Bath)
keithy 1/13/2010 1:30:00 PM
Hmm, this is a product that I can only use if I am in a certain mood because it has a very strong scent that I am not always in the mood for-to me it smells mostly like rose and jasmine. The scent lasts long after I've showered, and it makes a ton of iridescent bubbles. Also, the packaging is gorgeous! Overall, I enjoy it, however, I only paid 13 dollars for it, and it retails for around 60-much more than I would give even for the best bubble bath.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
keithy 1/13/2010 1:25:00 PM
I like this pencil a lot-there is no tugging while applying it, lasts, and it's the only pencil to ever stay on my waterline after I've applied it. On the other hand, it has some serious drawbacks-because it's so soft, it needs to be sharpened constantly, and as a result I finish it a lot faster than my other eye pencils. However, overall it is an excellent,rich,lasting black pencil.
Lip Gloss -Christian Dior - DiorKiss - 898 -Bonbon Violette (Violet Candy)
keithy 1/9/2010 3:54:00 PM
Really nice lipgloss-looks very dark in the tube but on my lips is a mlbb color with a violet tint that looks surprisingly natural. Also, it is very shiny, has a nice smells, lasts, and I like the slanted tip applicator. In addition, the tube is huge!
This is by far my favorite moisturizer-my skin feels amazingly soft and moisturized after I use it, and it manages to keep peeling skin at bay during the harsh Canadian winters, which is no mean feat. Also, smells very nicely. It's not cheap, around 20 dollars, but lasts a very long time, especially if used with a toner.
I really like using this cleanser during the winter, because it doesn't dry out my skin, and it actually makes it feel significantly softer. Also, smells very nice and exfoliates a bit. The only thing I am not crazy about is that it leaves some kind of greasy film on my skin, which makes me feel as if I did clean my face properly.
Blush -Revlon - Golden Affair Sculpting Blush - Berry Daring
keithy 1/8/2010 5:01:00 PM
This is my HG berry blush. Highly pigmented, wonderful color. Probably better suited for darker skin, but I can see this working for lighter skin as well, if applied lightly. I got this on sale for dollar fifty so I cannot complain about the price at all. The packaging is okay, but the hinges on the compact broke very soon after I purchased it.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Glam Shine Holographic - Clear
keithy 1/8/2010 4:56:00 PM
I really like this lipgloss, even though there is nothing holographic about it. Adds glass-like shine, which makes lips appear larger (I like that), plus, it is very versatile. My only problem with it is that is doesn't last as long on the lips as I would like it to.
