I really liked the coverage of this foundation and how long it lasts. It gives a dewy finish, however I'm not a fan of the shimmer. Under certain lighting the glitter is really noticeable. I also noticed that the actual shade is lighter than what it looks like in the bottle. Overall, a good foundation but would not buy again because of the shimmer.
This mascara did make my lashes longer and darker... but it's so clumpy and can't hold a curl AT ALL. It has an ugly spidery effect. Plus the bristles on the brush are really short. Never buying again.
Best nail polishes! These are inexpensive and last a week for me without chipping. It eventually starts to fade a little near the cuticles and edges but not really chip. I'm not exactly sure why... but more expensive nail polishes (OPI for Sephora, China Glaze, Nicole by OPI) start chipping in a day for me! Anyway, I have Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in three shades - Deep Purple, Emerald City, and Gunmetal. They're really pretty and go on so smoothly. I definitely recommend these!
Pros: lightly moisturizes, does add some color, the foam comes out well. Cons: color didn't get dark enough! It doesn't look like a full tan like what it shows on the bottle, it does have an odor, splotches and streaks. The product isn't terrible but it didn't really do it's job. I expected a dark tan but this just made me a tiny bit darker, and the streaks look like a burnt orange. Won't be rebuying.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Eyeful Eye Glistener 500 Stand Out

I bought this because I like Rimmel's other eyeliners but this one is so bad. I have this in 400 Talk To Me (light blue) and it turns gray at the end of the day. It's also reallyyy greasy! It glides on easy but it feels heavy and oily. I think it soaks up my mascara (so it turns gray) and it hurts my eyes after I've worn it for the day. I would never recommend this eyeliner.
Styling Products -Garnier - Fructis Style - Smoothing Milk

I wanted something really light that could smooth down my frizzy hair but this product only works for like 5 minutes! It smooths my hair for a while but it will start to frizz again once I'm outside in humid weather. The only thing I like about it is that it doesn't make my hair oily.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Skin Brightening Cleanser

This is a good cleanser and it smells fantastic. It's kind of drying though, but I use a really good moisturizer afterwards. It hasn't cleared away all my zits. Also, there's glitter in the cleanser which I don't like. I have sensitive skin and the glitter is really unnecessary. Not sure if I'll be repurchasing.
My acne is pretty severe and this product got rid of the worst pimples. However I still have zits and my skin is still bumpy. It doesn't fade dark spots either. Not sure if I'll buy again.
Moisturizers -The Body Shop - Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream

The only good thing about this cream is that it's light and doesn't leave your skin oily. It actually left my skin so dry that in minutes I would reapply some more cream. I've been trying to use what I have left of it since I spent the money, but it's really not worth it. This product really doesn't do anything for my skin.
Perfect! The skin on my cheeks and chin have been really dry lately and this product has really helped. It keeps my skin moisturized all day and it's really light so it never feels oily.
Editing review because I think I was too harsh before. This BB cream only looks good when my skin already looks fine to begin with. When my skin is red and bumpy it doesn't help at all. It's not horrible but I think I could get more for my money with a different product.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Voluminous False Fiber Lashes~Waterproof
l0vebuzz 8/11/2012 6:01:00 PM
My favorite! It makes my lashes look long, full, and dark. It also holds a curl really well. However, it does have a down side... it's really hard to take off! It takes multiple attempts to remove, and sometimes I just have to wait for the next day to completely remove it. It's such a good mascara though!
Too average. It darkened and lengthened my lashes a little, and held a curl, but it's nothing spectacular. The formula's too wet and it would clump if I brushed it on too fast.
Definitely one of the better mascaras I've bought! It really lengthens my lashes and it never clumps. The formula's really dry though, and it feels dry on my lashes. But overall, my lashes look great and I would definitely buy again.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum Express The Falsies Flared

Really disappointing. My lashes didn't look flared at all - they didn't even stay curled when I put it on. The brush isn't easy to use either. It clumped, smudged, and didn't lengthen my lashes. Waste of money.
