Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Blackest Black
kxtreme16 3/23/2013 7:52:00 PM
No pigment whatsover, smudging literally after TWO hours, brush was less than satisfying. I bought this twice, because I really wanted to like this. The only positive thing is the packaging, but I gave up on this after 2 weeks. And by then, the product was already drying up anyways. Wet N Wild's as well as Essence's line of gel eyeliner works way better: good pigmentation, almost no smudging, much more satisfying. Will not buy again.

The pigmentation is great. I don't really like the dryness of some lipsticks so the fact that this is practically a combination of a lip balm and lip stick is PERFECT. also, this color looks absolutely great. Granted, you'll probably have to reapply a couple of times but it's worth it. Definitely recommend and repurchase.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner

i'm currently using this and i've bought this product 2 times before. i will begin with the cons first. the eyeliner tends to smudge throughout the day and fades from my waterline very easily. i wear contacts and occasionally it's gotten on there too. BUT, i absolutely love the pigmentation of this eyeliner. and for that reason, i will still repurchase until i find something better or a non-smudging pencil eyeliner for my waterline (which seems like an impossible mission!)
this brush is SUPER soft, and since i adored the studio powder brush so much, i expected this one to work really well. And...it was just okay. It didn't apply very well, so i personally didn't like it. But if you like your blush to be applied likely, then i recommend this for you. Although for $3, you can't really complain too much on quality!
It was average, just average. I know this is a popular drugstore mascara and I've tried liking this...I bought this 3 times! I have short asian eyelashes and they did fine on volume, but they barely lengthened them. I usually like the maybelline line of mascaras, but not this one
I love this scrub! It comes in a smaller package than the Apricot Scrub and is a bit pricier, but you barely need much and it lasts a while! Also, it's worth its money. I highly recommend this scrub, i believe it's sensitive enough to use everyday :)
i am completely in LOVE with this brush. it's so silky and soft against my skin. i never really use it for powder though...i use it more for blushes and sometimes foundation. i love the elf line for having such high quality in their brushes for their prices. this brush is AMAZING for $3, i highly recommend this product.
Styling Products -Garnier - Fructis Sleek and Shine Weightless Anti-Frizz Serum

Honestly, for the price, you get more than you pay for! It makes my hair look shiny and healthy, as for frizz-free...it doesn't eliminate ALL frizz, but it definitely helps out. I apply this after applying heat and it makes my hair look strong, healthy, and shiny. Definitely would repurchase!
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

I never really saw the big buzz over Burt's Bees and I usually leaned towards baby lips or eos. But Randalls (my local grocery store) didn't have those brands so I got stuck with this. I must admit, i DEFINITELY underestimated how good this is! Literally, I apply it at least 5 times a day (I'm a chapstick fanatic). And i LOVE it. It has the perfect tint of color and moisturizes my lips perfectly. This is my number 1 must-have for the winter!
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream
kxtreme16 10/28/2012 1:40:00 AM
I've been wanting to try BB Creams in forever, and I thought this might've been a good place to start! And I don't regret it one bit. it makes my skin look radiant and I honestly do feel it's helped even out my skin. But I took off a lippie because it's packaging was kind of poor, there isn't that much product to begin with and it feels like the product always spills out too quickly. This product is almost like a fancy tinted moisturizer.
I really really wish this worked for me. I first saw this on MUA with rave reviews, but when I actually tried it out, it didn't work. Instead, it felt heavy on my hair instead of moisturizing. I even bought this again, just to see if it was a faulty one, but i got the same results :( I have pretty dry hair and I'm still trying to find my HG shampoo and conditioner.
Bronzers -Rimmel - Natural Bronzer - 22 Sun Bronze
kxtreme16 5/29/2012 3:28:00 PM
I actually enjoyed this product for the price. The color comes off as glowy and natural, not glittery or like a disco ball, like most bronzers I've come across. The packaging is poor, the lid's already cracked and delicate. If it had better packaging, definitely 5 stars!
I actually enjoyed this mascara. I remember the first time I used it, i absolutely hated the big brush, but I decided to revisit and give this mascara another chance. And now, I love it! It doesn't really get the "length" i desire, but it definitely does its job of volumnizing my eyelashes. For my asian eyelashes, they're usually very thin and short, and lately I've gotten many compliments on how full they look :)
This is my go-to lip balm! i always go back to this one no matter what. it moisturizes, it leaves that tingly feeling, and SPF 20 is always a plus. Some complain that it doesn't last long, but i don't really expect chapstick to stay on my lips all day anyways... i do enjoy this product, and i highly recommend it!
Conditioner -Clairol - Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship

I love this conditioner! I usually dislike herbal essences line because they tend to usually dry out my hair. But this conditioner combined with Aussie's 3 minutes deeeeep treatment, my hair's always silky soft, healthy, and shiny. I would definitely buy this product again!
