Streaky, cheap material, and hurts my skin.
Bronzers -Bonne Bell - Blend n Glow in Natural Blush

I actually don't use this as a bronzer or a blush. I pretty much opened it, broke the powder cakes, and put it into a little container. Amazing pigments.
Toners -Nature's Gate - Tone back the Clock Alcohol-Free Soothing Toner
lizziengaire 12/6/2010 12:33:00 AM
Love love love the packaging of all their products. Even though it's rather heavy. I wouldn't suggest this toner for people looking for anti-aging stuff. I'm 18, but I have dry skin, and it seems only either vaseline or anti-aging stuff will leave my skin un-flaky. However, this toner stings my face sometimes, despite the claim of it being non-alcoholic. It IS refreshing though.
Bought this at Winners for $10? I have dry skin, and have been using Shiseido for the morning and Clinique's anti-oxidant night cream at night, and when I was running out of it, I decided to give this a try. I really don't like the smell, and there was so little in the jar. The product itself is nice, I suppose. I wake up in the morning smooth and supple, but when I touched my face, there were bits of cream pilling and rolling on my cheeks (grossss... ) It's like when you shower, and then you start to scrub your skin with your towel, and you get those little specks of rolled up dirt and skin. Anyway, I really didn't like that. So I returned it.

My skin is really sensitive and flakes regardless of however much exfoliation or moisturizer I put on my skin. But every morning, I'd put this on my face, and the flakiness ceases for the rest of the day! It is, however, incredibly thick and heavy. But that just means richer emollients, right? :)
I LOVE THIS PERFUME. It's so feminine, fruity, and soft. Brightens up a dull wintery day or compliments a romantic summer afternoon :)
Mascara -Kiss Me - HEROINE MAKE long and curl mascara (black)
lizziengaire 7/29/2010 1:36:00 AM
This has a great application wand-- doesn't flake, doesn't smudge, doesn't clump :) In Korea, this sells for approximately 25 100 Won in South Korea, which is about $22.00 CAD. But I got mine online for like $3.00 hehe :) The Heroine Make Volume and Curl is a LOT better though. This is also RIDICULOUSLY hard to get off, so make sure you get the Heroine Make makeup remover as well. I just use baby wipes because the makeup remover is crazy expensive. Would defs buy again, once I finish the rest of my 18 or so mascaras...
This is a fairly new mascara, but judging by the amount of reviews its been given on here, it's clear that this product has been selling like crazy. So kudos to the people behind its advertisement! However, it's a lie T_T It's nothing like what it promised on the ad. It's not flaky, smudgy, or anything like that, but it really does not "reach corner to corner", achieving the "false lash" effect. It's just a regular old mascara. It's pretty good for those who want to achieve the natural look ;] But definitely no "false lash effect." Disappointed, I must say.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
lizziengaire 7/29/2010 1:21:00 AM
This is like an overpriced, softer, and pink version of aloe vera gel. However, I still love this product. It feels really nice on your skin. It's also very thin and watery-- I prefer these textures more than thick, heavy creams actually. It has the moisturizing power of those thick heavy creams, but feels like a light face mask that is easily absorbed by your skin! Would definitely buy again.. once Clinique puts it on promotion. :)
Smells exactly like baby powder. No lie. Bought this for mother's day present without smelling it.. BIG MISTAKE. The sales rep said it was perfect for women in their 30-40s. Personally, I think notes like sandalwood are best for older, more mature women. If you like baby powder, this is perfect for you. o.O
Fragrances -Donna Karan - DKNY Be Delicious Parfum Spray
lizziengaire 7/29/2010 1:13:00 AM
I had a sample of this 2 years ago, and fell in love with it. It's fruity, and pretty much defines the word fresh. I wore it for Winter. So last year, I went out and bought the full size perfume. But then, I realize that the smell started... fermenting, I suppose... the alcohol smell kept getting stronger and stronger. And that's when I started giving this, my ex-favorite perfume, dirty looks. If you really like this perfume, buy it-- the fragrance is worth it. BUT, be sure to buy the small size. Because I SWEAR, it ferments. Really fast. Well at least, my bottle did. :(
Well. I bought this because it was on sale for $19.99 and because of all the positive reviews on here. But when I put it on, it smells RIDICULOUSLY licorice-y and overwhelmingly sweet. There's light notes of almond, but really, all I smell is licorice. Wouldn't buy again even if it's for $10.

Really oily, but it does firm your skin and minimize pores. But, REALLY oily.
Treatments -Shiseido - Bio Performance Super Refining Essence
lizziengaire 4/11/2010 1:09:00 PM
This is my mom's but I use it anyway because I have SUPER dry skin. What I noticed, is that it smoothes out the texture of your skin, and minimizes pores. Love this. Even though it's not for my age.
I bought it in brown. Loved the packaging but.. I could just put water on my lids and get the same result! Ridiculously sheer, and it's probably targeted at REALLY pale skinned people. No, not even. For Albinos.
