I actually enjoy this mascara a lot! I picked it up on sale and wow I have to say I am impressed. I got it in the blackest black shade which really is dark and lucious. It looks like liquid black patent leather on my lashes. The brush makes it easy to get beautiful long lashes with minimal clumping. I haven't had to use a lash comb at all. It holds a curl, no flakes or smears or racoon eyes. The best part is that even though waterproof it hasn't dried out my lashes or caused breakage like Maybelline Falsies did on me. If your looking for a waterproof mascara with beautiful long glossy black lashes in one coat- give this a try ;)
Wow!!! I got this to try in Midnight Master. A hot muggy humid day was the perfect day to try this out. Super Black pigmentation. Smooth as butter and it never budged or faded or disappeared!! An awesome eyeliner. I didn't have any packaging issues whatsoever. I turned it a few times and up it went. Try it! You won't be dissapointed.
This cream is double listed under reviews so I thought I would repost here as well. I'm still using this cream. I actually have about 1/8 of my original jar left.....so it's lasted a long time for me! I really love this face cream. It's non-greasy because it contains no mineral oil and just leaves my face refreshed and prepped for makeup. The grapeseed is a fantastic anti-oxidant, and I love the light refreshing smell. It has SPF 15 in the cream. I've been using since August, and I still have tons of cream left. I picked mine up at Walgreens, but I know you can purchase online if you don't have a Walgreens in your area.Merlot is made of natural red grape seed polyphenols. It offers sensational antioxidant properties thereby helping to inhibit the aging process.Merlot is fragrance free, non-oily, absorbs quickly. They have several other products, and I will be trying all of them! I definately recommend this! Go get one- you'll love it!

Mascara -Wet 'n' Wild - Beauty Benefits Beyond Everything Mascara
kjo86 4/6/2009 2:25:00 PM
This is one of the new mascaras from the Wet n' Wild Beauty Benefits line. The brush is a rubber brush with a definer comb on one side and a thicker short bristled side. The brush is cool. The formula is so so- for me anyway. I got the Black one, and it's a very glossy black. It doesn't clump, but took a long time to dry. I ended up having little globs as my lashes touched my eye above and below. No clumping though.Once it dried though it didn't flake, but it kind've just dissapeared on me. I have pretty nice lashes and honestly this mascara didn't do much for them. Compared to Healthy Volume, Lash Blast, Chanel Exceptionnel, and Fantastic Lash which all give me outragous long thick lashes; this mascara just is a natural looking mascara. There is a slight smell to this mascara, not enough to bug you forever----but enough that I'm agitated for about an hour after applying it. Could be just me however. I have it on right now on my right eye and Healthy Volume on the other and it really doesn't compare. The brush is awesome and very unique however the formula needs some help I think. If you want a just slight coat and pretty much just your natural lashes with a little darkness added this is the one to try. It didn't hold my curl that much, but no major clumping or smearing once it finally dried. But there is a return policy if you buy it from certain stores---so give it a try and see what you think. It's just not for me.
I have this and love it. Thought I would post the ingredients for those times when you would like to know what is in it ;) INGREDIENTS: Complete Ingredient Listing: Aqua, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, PPG-2 Myristyl Ether Prpionate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Polysorbate 60, Tocopheryl Acetate, Glycolic Acid, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Fower Extract, Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Fruit Extract, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract, Symphytum Officinale Leaf Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Citric Acid, Lactic Acid, Malic Acid, Allantoin, Panthenol, Sorbitan Oleate, Polysorbate 20, Dipropylene Glycol, Fragrance (Parfum), Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben.

Love this nail color. Can't beat the price and the color is a beautiful dark sapphire"ish" jewel tone. Nice and dark the first coat. Kind've reminds me a little of the picture of the Chanel Navy one I saw that's coming out for spring- but definitely without the Chanel price. The packaging and the brush are just fine for me and for 99cents it's worth a try!

I tried a sample of this 2 times in about a month. Loved the texture and the color, but broke out bad. I hardly ever break out! But to give the benefit of the doubt as to what actually caused the breakout....I tried it again by itself after I had healed. The next day terrible break out again...not just a little - a lot. Once again-love the texture and the color but it's not worth the acne for me. Glad it was just a sample and that I didn't buy the full sized one :(
So far I really like this mascara. It's like a cross between Lash Blast and my fave CG Fantastic Lash WP. More waterproof than the lash blast...but not as hard to get off as the Fantastic Lash. Seperates my lashes WONDERfully! Haven't had to use a lash comb once. I got the carbon black one...when I returned a max factor one I had gotten in the wrong shade. The brush is big like the LashBlast brush...but not plastic. I really like it so far. Leaves me with a great lash line and no clumping of the lashes. This is what it says on the site.

Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Baked Pyramid Matte Bronzer - Tan
kjo86 12/5/2007 1:32:00 PM
I love this bronzer. I've never been able to wear bronzer without looking like a oompha loompha (orange) or being too glittery with sparkles all over my face. This is the baked tan in matte formula that can be used wet or dry. I use it it put color back into my face after foundation like a contour. Never looks too tan on me...just a nice healthy glow. So glad they make a formula without sparkles. Baked on Italian terracotta tiles, and I just love it! Highly recommend!

I picked this up as a "non" waterproof mascara...as usually I wear Fantastic Lash WP. So far so good. Applied pretty easy and really brought out all my tiny lashes underneath my eyes. Actually even curled them! which is amazing considering I usually have to use a lash curler. Will continue to update as I've used it a few times. But thought I would post the ingredients for others. *Pics down below.

I love most of the Powerpoints that I've tried in general- but this is one of my faves up there with Light as Air. I swapped for this awhile back as I thought it was so pretty in pictures. My fave of all is UD Electric liner...but Out to Sea is more blue and more matte than that. It is super easy to line with and smooth like butter. A great alternative to the sparkle of Electric..but I love them both just the same. It's a bright china blue color. It goes on very matte but stays on better through the day on me. Looks like Electric eel MAC eyeshadow it appears. Would without a doubt recommend it! ♥ INGREDIENTS cyclomethicone, c11-12 isoparaffin, paraffin, polybutene, hydrogenated cottonseed oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba seed oil), ceresin, ozokerite, ascorbyl palmintate, tocopherol, microcrystalline wax - other ingredients vary per color
Pressed Powders -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Face Powder
kjo86 10/23/2007 6:16:00 PM
I'm on my second one of these. For a Talc-free mineral pressed powder this is really good. I'm using the Translucent one and I'm around a NW20, Soft Ivory, kind've gal. I have used with my kabuki and with just a powder puff. It's smooth either way- but for coverage in a hurry the powder puff works the best for me. The packaging isn't bad-but the little brush that it comes with is pretty useless. Which is why I just pop in a new powder puff to use it with. I like the mirror for travel and the multi-color powder blends together smoothly and looks polished whenever applied. I highly recommend it! Pricing is a little higher for a drugstore item- but I just get it when they have 40% sales with coupons, which make it super affordable and a great powder to boot! Here's a list of the ingredients: ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: TITANIUM DIOXIDE 2.3% (AVE.), ZINC OXIDE 4.2%. INACTIVE INGREDIENTS: MICA, LAUROYL LYSINE, SILICA, SQUALANE, BORON NITRIDE, KAOLIN, RETINYL PALMITATE, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, METHYLPARABEN, PROPYLPARABEN. MAY CONTAIN: IRON OXIDES, ULTRAMARINES.
