I LOVE THIS. i mostly have high end eye shadows and this is i think my only drug store eye shadow palette. and i think i use this more than my high end eye shadows. the pigmentation, texture and blendability is great! it's very comparable to my MAC shadows and it might even be better. and for the price, you can't beat that!
Eye Shadow -MAC - Cinderfella Mineralize Eyeshadow

i LOVE this e/s. i regret it so much when i didn't get it with the collection because the only one i got was gilt by association, and after using that once, i fell in love with it, went back to get more, and they were all gone. but luckily i finally got all the other 3 in a swap and i'm happy as clam. :) cinderfella, what to say about it, it looks stunning in the pan and looks gorgeous on your eyes. it is black with tiny silver glitter, sounds boring, but looks so good on your eyes, it looks like a dark smoky eyes with a kick. when i don't know what to do when i go out at night, i just slap this all over my eyes and blend it out and i'm out the door. of course, i use it wet so it's darker and more pigmented. but either way it looks soooo pretty! i'm glad it comes with such a big pan, if i ever run out, i wouldn't know what to do!
I'M IN LOVE! i bought it 2 days ago and finally used it today. i can't stop looking at my nails! it's so lovely. it's a sheer pink color with loads of glitters and some holographic glitters! it's so gorgeous. i love dark nail polish and this is the only light color nail polish i have. and i'm never really into glittery polishes. but i instantly fell in love with this when i first saw it. and besides, it's KATY PERRY! who doesn't love her? :)
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Extra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads

hmm i can't believe this has such bad reviews. I got them in a swap and wasn't expecting much, but after using it i actually love it. I prefer them over my lancome bi facil because it's way more convenient. they remove my makeup pretty good but be careful not to get them in your eyes because they sting a little, but nothing bad though. overall i would give them a 4.5 because they're dirt cheap, removes makeup pretty well and very convenient. would definitely purchase again. .
i got this in one of the holiday sets. at first i thought i was never going to use it. i mean, glitters on your eyes? nah i'll pass. but then it was during the holidays and i figured, why not? i should do something extra. so i grabbed it, used it and OMG it's so pretty. it's so finely milled and it just makes your eyes look shiny. i would love to try more of MAC's glitter :)
i love this stuff. it smells great and works amazingly by giving my hair shine and it smooths them out. you only need a little and leaves your hair so soft and shiny. i use it on my dry hair, right before i go out. i always get compliments on how soft, shiny my hair is. i got this at ulta when they were having this sale, where it was buy this (the largest size) and another thing for about $15. of course i had to buy it, without any exceptions i fell in love with this. I would repurchase this even at original price.
i'm not one that like to wear lip product. but this is one that i find myself reaching for quite often. whenever i want to wear something to give my face some color, this is the one i reach for. it isn't super bright but it gives some color. you can wear it very sheer and you can definitely build it up. esp. during the holidays i find myself wearing this quite a bit. love it. it also isn't drying at all which i love. i would def. repurchase if i ever run out.
i love this stuff, and i don't mind the packaging and it's really moisturizing and feels great. however i can not STAND this color. i have very pigmented lips but with even that, with this stuff on, i look like i'm half dead. other than that i love it, so i'll only be using this at night or at home where no one sees me lol.
okay, this is seriously one expensive foundation, but is it worth it? yes, every single penny of the $46. i got this in a swap without knowing anything about this, and the color match is perfect for me. i got 030 and it matches my NC 30 ish skin pretty good. the foundation isn't overly yellow or pink which is perfect for me as i have pretty neutral undertone. it has i'd say medium coverage but it's pretty buildable. i have a lot of acne scars and i have break out on my face here and there, and this foundation does not break me out and covers my acne scar pretty good. I don't like the cakey feeling or heavy foundation, but i do like a foundation that covers well without feeling like heavy foundation (who doesn't right?).. and honestly, my skin is no where near perfect... or even decent. i have large pores, discoloration, acne scars, oily skin and pimples and i have a few people come up to me and say i have good skin.... good skin? that's not even in my dictionary.. but it's all thanks to this foundation. this foundation isn't too matte or dewy, which i love, like i said, i have oily skin, so if anything too dewy will just make me look like a hot mess, and if it's too matte it'll make me look dead. my skin does get a little oily after about 5 or 6 hours, but what can i do when i have oily skin, but it looks so natural on and feels soo good. i just finished my first bottle yesterday and went to sephora and bought a second bottle. this is hands down, my HG :)
Blush -Rock & Republic - Contrived Blush - Spank [DISCONTINUED]

this had quickly become my favorite blush. i owe a lot of blushes from MAC to NARS to everything else in between and none of them really stand out to me where i have to tell the world how much i LOVE it. it is such a gorgeous color and i use it every single day ever since the day i got it. no lie. there wasn't a lie that i didn't use it. that's how much i love it. the blush is very pigmented and it isn't chalky. one dab on the blush with my brush is enough, but since this isn't some crazy over the top color, it really is fool proof. i would definitely repurchase this if i ever run out. which i doubt i will any time soon.
I thought I would never buy any U.D. palette prior Naked palette, because honestly, nothing interests me. i bought them but ended up returning all of them.. until i got Naked palette, then my love for UD is back. so i was browsing at Ulta and saw they had a bunch of BOS3, so i decided to grab one... just because the colors looked so pretty and because of my previous positive experience with naked. got home, instantly fell in love with this palette. the colors are amazing, very unique, which i love. esp the purple shades in there. every single shade in there is crazy pigmented and buttery smooth. can't even compare to MAC's e/s! $60 is a lot, but if you think about it it's worth it. it has 16 shades in there and it will last you forever. and not to mention it has a cool pop up art and lights up!
i love this palette. i understand how some people doesn't like this because the pigmentation are not as great as MAC's other eyeshadows, but if you really use a primer and build it up, it's great. i wasn't too into this palette when i first got it because like a lot of views already said, it's too sheer, but the more i use it, the more i see myself reaching for it. i'ts a really good neutral palette,, NOT SMOKEY PALETTE. it's one of my go to palette when i don't know what to do, so i just put this all over my eyes. it's easy and it's pretty on. and besides, the packaging is to die for. it's so unique. and i got this at my local CCO for about $25 :)
Lip Treatments -SoftLips - Moisture Enriched SPF 20
luv4juicy5308 10/13/2010 3:16:00 AM
yes, this is a cheap lip balm, and surely it smells GREAT. but it dried my lips out. i was working on Sunday as a wedding coordinator assistant and since it's so small and thin, i thought i'd carry with me. i NEED lip balm in my life and if i forget to bring one, i'd freak out and have to buy a new one. so i can say I've tried plenty lip balms before and this is by far the worst lip balm next to carmax. they both dried my lips out. i put it on for about 10 minutes and i could feel my lips getting dried. but i don't have the time to constantly keep applying them and luckily my cousin was there with me and she was carrying the burt's bee lip balm (my fav). and after applying the burts bee, i didn't even feel the need to reapply for the whole night. would NOT repurchase. i'm not even going to keep using the one i have right now. ugh.
Liquid -Lancome - Teint Idole ULTRA [DISCONTINUED]
luv4juicy5308 10/9/2010 7:07:00 PM
this is my HG foundation, hands down. i do use other foundation but i always come back to this, and tell myself why this is my favorite foundation. i think it's medium to full coverage, very buildable but does not look cakey. i like to use various different brushes and no matter which brush i use, the result is still amazing. the first time i bought this, i had low expectations of this because i got this in the lancome outlet, retail price is $42 i think and it was only $15 when i got this, so i thought it was just a whatever foundation that no one likes, but when i got home i tried it, i loved it. i actually finished the whole bottle (I HAD NEVER FINISHED ANY FOUNDATION BEFORE) and paid full price for a new bottle. and up to this date, i still love it. i'd say this is great for people that has normal to oily skin. i have oily skin myself and it doesn't leave my face looking greasy, which i love. it also lasts a very long time on my face, usually by the end of the day the foundation still stays on my face nicely. if i need to go out at night, i'll just have to blot my face and powder it up a little :) i'd definitely repurchase this if i run out of this bottle again. this is HG status
wow i searched high and low and FINALLY, AFTER SOOOO LONG, i FINALLY got this in a swap. and i'm sooooooo glad i did. after using this, i would buy this with my own money even if i have to. this is seriously the SOFTEST brush by MAC ever. i love touching the brush, esp after i wash it, it is so soft. i use this for all over finishing powder on my face, it gets under my eyes, side of the nose by just swiping the brush over once. unlike the MAC 150 or 182, they're both a good brush but i would prefer this over those 2. if i can have only one MAC face brush, this will be it, no joke.
