Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational-Coral Crush
laawhitegirl 12/3/2012 8:42:00 AM
When I first was trying to think outside the box when it came to my lips I decided to try a coral color and came across this. I am so happy with my buy. This has to be one of my favorite lipsticks including its color, the feel of it on your lips and the price!
Liquid -Make Up For Ever - Mat Velvet PLUS Matifying Foundation
laawhitegirl 11/28/2012 10:58:00 AM
I have pretty oily skin so when I first started using makeup and foundations, I was pretty excited to find this foundation. However this is that foundation that is so easy to look cakey with. I know its matte but I think when you put it on after a while it dries up on you. I try to mix this foundation with others. For example my revlon color stay is too dark for me in the winter so I mix it with this foundation to lighten it up.
Primer/ Corrector -Neutrogena - Shine Control Primer
laawhitegirl 11/28/2012 10:44:00 AM
I was at CVS one day and seen this. Being that my skin is pretty oily, it caught my eye. Plus I just loved the square black container tube that it is in. I decided to give this a try since I do like Neutrogena products. This primer does what it is supposed to and keeps my oil under control. Not that I don't get oily at all during the day but I'm sure we all know there is no solution to stop the oil lol This product is a bit grainy and it feels heavier to put on your skin than other primers may feel but does the job and I would definitely repurchase! BTW the primer was about $13
When I first bought this foundation, I was just in the midst of buying different foundations and trying new products. At first I remember not liking this foundation and what I didn't enjoy was seeing it separate in the bottle. So I'm not even sure when I started using this foundation almost every day (occasionally switching up on the weekends or special nights out) but I just realized why have I not yet shared how great I think this product is. I think that this foundation runs around $13. It has medium coverage so if you need to cover up some acne you can either use another coat or use a concealer. I really like this foundation. I use about 2 and 1/2 pumps to cover my whole face so I do use a lot of the product but I've had it for about two months now (if not more) and I still have more than half a bottle i believe. Definitely try this foundation out!
About a year ago I began getting cystic acne.. not sure from what but I had just turned 22 so it was probably hormonal acne. I tried everything and what helped me most was airborne/emergenc (yes please believe it and try it!!!) Recently I got a little lazy and forgot to take my daily emergenc and I broke out a bit (luckily not as much as what used to happen) I remembered that the proactiv mask always worked for me when it came to break outs so I ordered it again on Ebay for about $6 (2.5 oz) and I used it one day on my entire face and now I put it on my break outs for the night. After two nights my pimples began to calm down and go down. They are drying and it's working! So hopefully it will work for you! Very unpleasant smell but what can you do?
Lipstick -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Charm
laawhitegirl 10/11/2012 11:02:00 AM
So I was looking for a peachy lipstick and decided to try this. Now it definitely did not give me the look I wanted but I tried it with my Wet & Wild peach lipstick (which is toooooooooo dry to wear alone) and it gave me the look i wanted! So happy. I think if I purchase in the future, it would be simply to use as a lip moisturizer. Im not sure why other's don;t think this lip stain is moisturizing because it leaves my lips soft :-)
I just ordered my pencil and I used it for the first time today. Easy to say IM IN LOVE! Now, I do not like the price of it ($20 for little product) and as many had mentioned it is very fragile. They could have made it thicker. I don't need to really bring it with me anywhere so it's fine at home or if you want I jguess just keep it in the box. This pencil is awesome. The precision is so well and you don't use a lot of the product so hopefully ti lasts a long time. I have dirty blondish/light brown hair so I got it in medium ash and I think I would like going darker next time but for now this will do.
Mascara -Dejavu (Imju) - DJV Beautenizer Fiberwig LX
laawhitegirl 9/28/2012 11:50:00 AM
I actually got this mascara for free when it first was released about last year September and at the beginning I loved everything about it. It doesnt dry out quick and I still have it this day. It may not be kosher but it works the same it did last year. However, I began using it together with other mascaras for a more full and darker look so it does its job I guess. It doesnt clump and is pretty easy to take off. So I will probably repurchase but I'd rather spend $22 on something else.
I'm not sure which color I have because it has rubbed off but I believe it is the watermelon crush. This is one of my favorite lip glosses and I am not a lip gloss fan at all because i hate my hair blowing and sticking to it, whatever. I really wish I can give you guys the name of the color I bought because when I put it on bare lips it gives it a bit of a pink shade but with lipstick it just makes it glossy. I've had this for about 4 months now and although I don't use it on a daily basis, it's worth the 8 dollars.
I got this as a sample from a friend who works for Lancome and usually I don't like pencils that you have to sharpen but this one works very good and although I do have cheaper eyeliners that work just as well, I feel that this one stays on longer and is darker which I like because I'm not big on going to the bathroom to reapply during a night out. Definitely will think about repurchasing but because of the pricing being at $25 a pencil, I will rethink and maybe look for something better like the MAC kohl for about $14 instead
So I usually don't like to spend more than $15 on mascara but during my recent vacation my best friend had purchased this mascara and I used it. Now, I am not a fan of the plastic brush but this mascara was awesome! It made my eyelashes so full and extended them to great length. It also went so close to my eyelash line that I don't think I would need to even wear eyeliner on my top line. I just purchased this mascara for myself and cannot wait until it comes in the mail!
Brows -Make Up For Ever - Make Up For Ever Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector
laawhitegirl 8/16/2012 4:24:00 PM
Now, I have only tried this product on twice. At the store and once at home. I love it already but I am in the process of growing out my eyebrows to reshape them but I heard about this product and read great reviews. I do not really like the packaging just because I think that it is small for $20 and also.. I am sure that I will have a hard time getting a the itty bit that will be left in there when it is almost done. I did read that it lasts a long time though so I guess it is worth it. I am am excited to use this because I usually use a powder to color in my eyebrows but after a day at work they can easily smudge just like a pencil which is also rough on the hair. So this is something that is waterproof and much easier to apply.. Someone had mentioned using the product straight from the tube but I suggest squeezing some out on your hand first only because straight from the tube might mean youre putting too much on the brush.
Primer/ Corrector -Palladio - Herbal Liquid Foundation Primer
laawhitegirl 8/16/2012 4:17:00 PM
I have tried a few primers but I always went back to the Rimmel London primer. I then saw a makeup tutorial and the girl was using this primer so just as soon as I heard herbal i was sold. I am from Europe and if it's anything we believe in it's herbal things! lol So I purchased this primer on Amazon for about $12 and I love it. I know that people compare it to smashbox's primer but I have never tried it out so I am not sure. It definitely does have a completely different texture from Rimmel London's primer because when I apply it to my face I don't feel anything and then my skin is just silky smooth. I think the silkiness feeling is good for applying foundation just because it goes on smoothly. I really like this primer so far and will definitely repurchase.
Moisturizers -Mary Kay - Formula 3 Oil Control Lotion
laawhitegirl 8/16/2012 4:12:00 PM
WOW! I am sitting at work ready to leave and my face has yet to get oily! I have been using this lotion for about two weeks and I noticed instant results however I wanted to wait before I wrote a great review. So I have very oily skin and nothing can control it. It is really annoying that I come in at work at 9 and around 1 pm I am already shiny. Powder helps but it only helps so much and then you look cakey at the end of the day. So definitely need something for the real problem. I have been applying to my face at night and before makeup in the morning. The only thing I did notice it has dried my face out a bit but not irritating dry so I am dealing with that. I have limited the use to only underneath makeup and it seems fine. If that happens to you, I suggest just applying a moisturizer before you go to bed so it can rehydrate your skin. I have also been using this lotion on my chest and shoulders because I happened to break out during a humid spell (im from NY so if you know how humid it gets you can imagine) and it worked! My pimples have started to go away and my face itself has gotten better. I purchased this on amazon just because I didnt want to wait to find a Mary Kay sales rep. and it was bout $13 but definitely worth it for its capabilities as well as the size.
Gels/Soaps -Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Body Wash
laawhitegirl 3/15/2012 12:30:00 PM
I was in Walgreens and because I love to buy new things for no reason, I purchased this. I figured I wanted a new good smelling body wash and it was $6 for a big bottle so why the heck not? I read some reviews while walking around the store and although some people said this has not helped their bacne, I still decided to purchase. I dont really get much bacne maybe before a period or so. I just wanted it as a body wash Come to find out it not only smells great, its a great body wash, and I havent seen any new pimples! Great buy!
