I really like this. I use many different types of self tanner and then I pop this on top to give my color some extra depth. You can over do it, but I don't so I think it makes my legs look awesome.
Self Tanners -Unlisted Brand - Malibu - Hemp Golden Glow Bronzing Moisturizer
lunardrive 7/4/2012 12:15:00 PM
As many have stated, this is a moisturizer with a bit of DHA so the color it gives is very gradual. I like it because it is a nice moisturizing lotion and doesn't go on streaky at all so the application is foolproof unlike the self tanners that give a lot more color. I use banana boat to give me a shot of color and then I use this daily to help maintain. Using this with the banana boat gives me awesome color year round with out looking orange. The other great thing is the price; I paid $4 for 8 oz.
If I were reviewing this on color alone, it would have gotten a solid 5 from me. Unfortunately I agree there's a bit of a learning curve as far as application goes. It's just kinda tricky. I have it easy because I have ugly hands and don't mess with polish on my hands and I feel that toes don't have to be perfectly painted to still look pretty darn good.So I can make this work for me. Color wise, I could easily put this in the top ten best looking nail polishes I have ever encountered. If you are into uber bling, this one is for you! It packs a serious glitter punch.
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

I don't have anything new or exciting to add to all of the other reviews of this product. It is what it is: a great, cheap, non-smudging, Non-flaking, drug store mascara. There is NOTHING in this world that brings me joy the way that a great cheap make up find does. So if you need a little bit of happiness in a tube, pick this baby up at your local Walgreens.
I was dying to find a mid-tone barbie/bubblegum pink that looked okay with my warm skin tone. This is it! It is bright and pink without being neon. Yeah, I am forty, but I don't give a sh*t. If I want to wear barbie pink lipstick and glitter eyeliner when I am 90, that's what I am gonna do!
I bought this based on the picture attached to the reviews of this product. This does not disappoint, even at $15 a bottle. It is sublime.
This is so beyond just a regular old silver nail polish. It is foil-ish and sparkly and fabulous. I look down at my toes (cuz i have some seriously UGLY hands) and I am just blown away. It's just the thing I needed to lift my spirits. It's just a seriously awesome nail polish. The one thing I am not crazy about is Zoya's packaging. I am not someone who is all about packaging, but if a company is going to charge top dollar, I do think that the packaging should be better than Zoya's packaging.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Age Shield Face- SPF 110 waterproof

I really like this sunscreen. I feel that it protects well, it doesn't leave me all greasy, and it doesn't cause me to break out . Compared to the European brands, it is decently priced.
This is another great cheap drugstore find that makes it unnecessary for me to spend lots of money on makeup. I was out and about and saw this little gem and bought it based on my experience with Milani products and it didn't let me down. It is super pigmented and I actually like the brush and the tweezers that come with it. Great product, great price!
This isn't cheap, but they last me forever and they give me the best shave I have ever had. I can shave it ALL with this razor (won't be graphic, but I mean everything below the waist) without any nicks or cuts. So the initial payout hurts, but the payoff is worth every cent.
There was no way that I was going to pay $300 for a hair dryer, so I bought an older version off the internet for $100 just out of curiosity. I have long, unruly, highlighted, course, thick hair from hell so I really hoped that this would cut down my drying time, but I am a skeptic, so I did not have high hopes. I have had it now for at least 2 years. I expected it to be super powerful and to blow me away, but the airflow was nothing to write home about. But I noticed something strange....my dry time was seriously faster than normal with this. Another thing that blows me away is that I do not have split ends and I am not one to get my hair trimmed often. I have ALWAYS had visible split ends and they are now non-existent. So, if you have the cash, this is a good dryer and it is obviously WAY less damaging to the hair. I definitely got my monies worth out of this. Out of the box it won't blow you away, but it does what it claims to do.
This is HG material for me. It doesn't clump, flake, or give me raccoon eyes. I also love the brush. I have small eyes and the brush is nice and small and can fit into tight spaces without me getting mascara everywhere BUT my lashes. And best of all, it's cheap. They routinely have sales at Ulta so I normally don't pay more than $6 for this and I also agree that this mascara is comparable in quality to definicils mascara.
I totally respect other people's perspectives on this product, but at 14.5% zinc oxide, there is no way I would ever expect this not to be thick and to not leave a major white cast so I personally can't knock it down for that. I wouldn't use it on my face, but I love it for the rest of my body. I got 8 oz of this for about $8.00 so I think the price is decent too.
I usually like full coverage foundations, but I think I am going to use this as foundation for the summer. It has an SPF of 50 which is awesome IMO. It hasn't caused me to break out and i think the coverage is pretty good for it being just a BB cream and not a foundation. I put it on my face and then fill in with a bit of foundation for the areas that need more coverage and I put a mineral powder on top and i am good to go. I get it for about $20 on ebay which I can live with.
This is thick and hard to spread, but doesn't cover worth a lick. This is not a full coverage foundation. I don't think it's that expensive because Walmart sells it for $9 and CVS or Walgreens always have sales on Revlon. To me, it's not even medium coverage and this is in no way a replacement for Estee Lauder double wear. Double wear covers, this stuff doesn't even come close to the coverage I get with double wear.
