Styling Products -Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Serum

Love this serum! It was recommended by the hair board so many times I finally broke down and bought a travel size from Ulta. I don't like using heat on my hair but when I air-dry, my hair gets super fuzzy and poofy. I just distributed about 1 pump through damp hair (concentrating on the ends) and after it dried, I was shocked! It made my hair SOOOO SOFT. The last time my hair was this soft was before I hit puberty! LOL! I love how the consistency is a little thicker so that when you pump it out it doesn't run all over the place and make a mess. I'm usually leery of serums because I bought the Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine serum..and it just weighed my hair down and did absolutely nothing. PM SSS does not weight my hair down AT ALL and keeps it bouncy and full of body. The ONLY gripe I have with it is the smell...I know most people would describe is as candied apples...I would describe as...cough syrup. It is overly sweet and very cloying and reminds of those liquid Tylenol we had to take as kids..just apple flavored. I was hoping to find something that would make my hair smell good..but oh well! I will still buy it because it works so well! EDIT 8.17.09: I've actually grown to like the smell of this a lot more! The scent is actually starting to remind me of liquid apple jollyranchers! And also, today after I showered, I put this in my hair. This was around 5PM, and at around 10PM my guy friend gave me a hug and he commented on how my hair smelled good! LOL So yeah, just to give you guys an idea because I dont think my shampoo/conditioner are the ones that smell good.
Pressed Powders -MAC - Select Sheer Pressed Powder

This powder is nice. Very sheer and is never cakey even after piling it on. However, it does not control oil and should only be used to set foundation. I got this awhile ago when I was still pale so I got it in a very pale color. But now, I got very tan but since it is so sheer it is still usable, which is pretty good! I will not repurchase though because my skin is very oily and I need something to keep my face from looking so shiny. But if you're skin is normal then try this! :] Very sheer, doesn't cake, and doesn't change the color of your foundation.
Love this top coat! This drys suuuuper fast and does not leave me handicapped for hours waiting for my nails to dry. (I'm naturally a very impatient person and am not willing to sit and do nothing for a long period of time.) This is great! Smells like alcohol, rather than that regular "nail polish" smell, if you know what I mean. Love the frosted glass bottle, its really pretty! Also makes the polish really easy to remove with non-acetone remover. My only gripe with this is that it isn't one of the shinyest top coats and is not the best for protecting against chips/tip wear. Usually what i do is after all the layers are dry, when i have a little free time I put on an extra coat of SH Double Duty base/top coat which gives it that extra shine and durability. Since In a Snap is a pretty thin formula, it you like layering polishes and making designs, when it dries, you will still be able to "feel" the design (the bumps and all) so the SH also helps to fill it in and smooth it out.
love the smell of this hair cream, but its not the best for my hair. its a little too heavy and makes my hair greasy faster than if i didn't use it. doesn't make my hair as smooth as i want it and i think it is building up in my hair. i'm not sure though, since i've never clarified before. so anyways, i still think its a great product, just not right for my hair type. so try it, its really cheap anyways. :]
got this for free because i accumulated enough points with my ulta club card. :] got this in flesh and it is awesome! it is almost mlbb, and i lightly line and fill in my lips with this and top it with chapstick since it is a little drying. but other than that, i like it. :]
been looking for a cheek stain forever because a) i tend to look kinda sallow and need some type of blush to make me look healthy, and b) blushes always tend to fade very quickly on me. so, all the other cheek stains are all kind of pricy (almost 30 dollars!) so when i found this half off at sephora, i immediately snatched this! got this is barely buff which is the perfect color for my asian, yellowy skin! (but i think it will work on just about anybody) i just dab a tiny bit onto my cheeks and blend it and gives me a healthy flush that LASTS!! it is really sheer and a little liquidy. a little too sheer for my lips, but if i need to i can use it there too. so far, hg! :]
Lip Treatments -Revlon - Beyond Natural Liptint SPF 15 ] [DISCONTINUED]

had been looking for a tinted lip balm for a long time, because my lips are always very dry and chapped and have almost no pigment in them. when revlon was bogof at ulta...saw these and had to try them! they are perfect! a tinted lip balm that is not too sheer and actually shows up with spf! got this in rosy, which is a pink/coral/nude ish color. almost mlbb. :] had a nice sheen and makes my lips look healthy and moist. it is actually very bright and looks just a teeny teeny bit too orangey if i apply too heavily so i apply it very sheerly and it makes so lips so sooo good! yay! :] love this! i really wanna try neutral pink or nude. :]
Mascara -Revlon - Beyond Natural Mascara [DISCONTINUED]
loliemoo 8/13/2008 5:24:00 PM
i really was expecting a lot out of this mascara. the brush is really cool (and is just like clinique full definition) with a short side and a long side to comb through to get rid of clumps. it doesn't work that good, tho...it still kinda clumps (and i hate clumpy lashes)...and i have to comb through with a lash comb. the worst part is how it makes my lashes feel after i remove it. my lashes used to feel really soft..and now..they feel all brittle. :[ i'm reallly sad,,i really thought this was going to be a cheaper version of clinique high definition. :[ on the other hand..it does volumize and lengthen nicely.
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Lip Care Stick - Cocoa Butter

i have the one with the clear cap, not the brown cap. i got this as a present, and wow, it is amazing! it smells like chocolate..which..i guess for most people is good..but ..i prefer fruity smells better. anyways, so..i lost my regular chapstick and decided i would try this. when i put it on, it felt very smooth and is not very waxy. i just though it was an average product. however, i didn't realize how good this product was until later that day, when i realized that my lips weren't chapped, for once. (my lips are usually ALWAYS chapped and dry)..and yet..my lips were sooo smooth and soft!! woohoo! this chapstick is hg material for sure!! :]
Eye Shadow -Clinique - Pair of Shades #37 Starstruck/Golden Lynx
loliemoo 6/1/2008 2:05:00 AM
i only have the starstruck (lighter) shade. it looks gorgeous in the pan, but when i put it on...I barely see anything. Either it is super sheer, or it is the same color as my eyelids!
Lip Liners -Prestige - Lightshine Sheer Gloss Liner
loliemoo 6/1/2008 1:55:00 AM
ooh i like this. I have this in calla, which is a bright pink color. I use this to lightly line and fill in my lips and then top with a lip balm. This gives me a natural pink lip color that really brightens up my face. :]
got this at half price at cvs. yayy. i like the sheer red tint, although its super sheer and doesn't show up that well...doesn't moisturize as much as I would like it to...this little chapstick I got at the mini mart at a gas station actually moisturizes better...it works okay tho. I like the little pot. Its cute. :]
my fav mascara so far! i love the comb. its what drew me in to buy it in the first place. doesn't smudge or flake. not clumpy at all. for volume, it doesn't do that much, but lengthens and really defines them like no other! :] the comb is also perfect for the lower lashes. :] im gonna try the waterproof next :]
Eye Shadow -Prestige - Beauty Bar Eye Shadow Palette in Techno

great eyeshadow. pretty well pigmented. loovee the colors. i had been trying to find a palette with plums and pinks and this was perfect. does NOT give you a black eye ;] looks great alone or together. awesome price too! :] would buy this again...dont think i'm going to run out though...ima try the one with blues and greens :]
great eyeliner. this thing will not budge! before i used it, i drew a little line on the back of my hand to see how it would look. afterwards, when i tried rubbing it off, it wouldnt come off!! even w/ a little water, it didnt come off easy. i also used this while i was in the rose parade. it lasted a nap and two hours of dancing out in the sun. i got this is black and brown/black during one of ultas bogof sales. i also had a coupon so i got them both for a dollar!! :]
