Mascara -Maybelline - Illegal Lengths Mascara (2011)

I actually like this mascara. When I first tried it I thought that I had wasted my money, but after playing around with it I started to like it. It really does lengthen. It works best when it is used alone with no other primers or anything and you need to do multiple coats while it is still wet. The formula is a little drier than I usually like, but if you work with it you can get beautiful lashes.
Like everyone says the amazing thing about this topcoat is that it dries super fast. It is also really shiny the first couple days, but then it starts to fade and chip. Also, it causes polish shrinkage. The polish on the tips starts to shrink away. So basically it is just amazing for the fast drying, but other than that it has no special qualities.
Great light daytime moisturizer, especially for the warmer months. I love how it makes my skin look fresh and glowing. You only need to use a tiny little bit. Looks great under makeup or worn alone. I would recommend using a heavy nighttime moisturizer along with this because it is so light.
This is my go to eyeliner. I have had a lot of compliments on it, even from guys. It is a perfect daytime color. The consistency is nice and it goes on smoothly. I am on my second pot and I will definitely buy again once I am out. It is the perfect copper color.

Love everything about this. I have been a big fan of Buffy for years and decided I wanted to try one without exfoliation that I can use all over my body. This stuff is amazing! It is extremely moisturizing and my skin feels so soft. It is a little greasy at first but that does not last long and it eventually absorbs into your skin and leaves it smooth and it smells like the beach. I love it.

I really like this for under my eyes. I use the neutralizer and the medium shades together and they work perfectly. Very creamy and smooth and they blend in seamlessly. Last all day. Will definitely repurchase.
This blush is stunning. It is such a beautiful, soft color and it gives my olive skin tone a natural tan glow. I went to mac looking for a more natural bronze color because all my blushes are very bright and I wanted something a little more toned down. This blush is perfect and great for everyday. It is also a great blush if you want to do a dramatic eye. So glad I discovered this color.
Love this!! I can't believe I only started using eyebrow makeup until recently. This stuff is amazing and although it is expensive it will last forever, and I mean forever. I don't see me having to replace this anytime soon. At first I was unsure about it because of the wax and I didn't really know how to use it, but once I got the hang out it I have no idea how I have lived without it for so long. The wax is my favorite part it just makes my eyebrows look so perfect. Definite makeup bag staple.
The smell made me want to barf it was so disgusting. I had to wash my face again with another product to try and get the smell off and even then I was nauseous for a while after. It was just such a bad smell. I am sure it is a nice cleanser, very lightweight, which I love, but I can't get pass the smell. I think Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel is much nicer and a better price.

Okay so I think this is one of those products that you just have to try and see if it works for you or not. I got this in a sample and used it for a couple weeks, a little bit goes a long way. I was amazed to see the transformation in my skin. It left it feeling so soft and smooth and it looked so much brighter. I even got compliments from friends who noticed the difference and said my skin looked great. I use this in the mornings, it isn't the fastest absorbing lotion but it does absorb into the skin. I suggest getting a sample and trying it because it could be that it transforms the appearance of your skin like it has mine.
I love this cleanser. It makes me want to wash my face over and over. It smells wonderful, is extremely lightweight and it leaves my skin feeling so fresh and smooth. This is a true cleanser, it is not an acne product. It use it in the mornings and at night. Some people don't like the fact that it doesn't foam, but I like how it leaves my skin feeling after use better than foaming cleansers.
So I have been on a never ending search to find the perfect mascara. I have bought drug store brands and more expensive name brands. I am assuming if you are researching this mascara it is because you love the look of long thick fake lashes without having to actually get fake lashes and not the more natural look. When it comes to eyelashes my philosophy has always been, the bolder the better. I tried this product on a whim because it was only $5 at Target and I wasn't expecting much, especially since I was reading the reviews of it while I was standing there trying to make the decision to buy it and I and glad I went for it. At first I was disappointed in it, but after a few uses I fell in love. I am actually using the brown because they were sold out of black. This mascara adds amazing length and if you want more volume then use a primer. Yes it clumps but that is because it is thick and if you learn how to apply it correctly then you won't have that problem. Long, smooth strokes from the root to the tip work well and don't try to reapply once it is dry so layer on when it is still wet. I used to be obsessed with YSL mascara but it dried up so fast and it was $27. If you want that fake lash look then I suggest you try this and remember to use a primer underneath for volume.

Absolutely love this mascara. All my life I have been on a hunt for the best mascara. This by far is the best that I personally have come across. Usually the first day I wear a mascara it is kinda watery and it takes a couple uses before it gets to the consistency where I like it. This one right off the bat the first use was amazing. My lashes look so long. This is not for people that want a natural look. I am trying to have the fake lashes look without fake lashes and this is the closest I have come.
I absolutely love love this bar!! Now that I have started using it I do not know how I could live without it. My skin has never felt softer. This is super moisturizing so for those of you who have dry skin this is a great product. I have tiny bumps on my arms and thighs and this helps to reduce them. Now I have very few and they are hardly visible. This cuts down getting ready because now I do not have to moisturize after I get out of the shower. It is definitely worth a try if you have not already.
I really like this perfume. I bought it off sephora.com without ever smelling it because I became so curious about it. At first I was not too sure about it because it is so different from all the other perfumes that I wear but it has really started to grow on me. You only need one spray and the smell last all day. It is very nice although I was thinking that it would have more of a grapefruit smell but essentially it is vanilla and even though I usually hate vanilla scents this one is quite pleasant.
