Masks -Freeman - Facial Hydration Mask - Gogi Berry

I bought this based on the intriguing ingredient list - goji berries, other antioxidants...for a dirt cheap price! So exciting! I couldn't wait to try it out. :) The mask itself is a clear sort of gelliness. I left it on for the reccommended ten minutes. After I washed it off, I noticed my skin was more hydrated and a bit smoother. It works great!
My hair is definitely tricky. It's really frizzy, dry, coarse. NOTHING seems to work. This is one of a lot of products I am trying. When I washed the conditioner from my hair, it did seem softer, for sure, and the next day too. However, the conditioner only seemed to make my hair a little less frizzier and softer. It didn't have amazing results for me. Still looking for that HG hair product...
I bought this in the rollerball form and loved it! It definitely has a nice vanilla scent to it and smells smashing:)
Lip Treatments -First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Lip Therapy

I LOVE this lip balm! It moisturizes my lips so nicely, yet it's free of petroleum, so that's a huge plus. I don't have anything bad to say about it:)
Misc Beauty Tools -Sephora - SEPHORA - Whole Store

How can anyone not like Sephora? These must be the same people who say they don't like chocolate...Sephora is my favorite store ever! I love how you can try everything on in the store, the pretty packaging and gorgeous colors of everything...shopping here is just too much fun! I always find something I want/need here, whether it's a mascara, mositurizer, whatever! The salespeople do go up to me a lot whenever i go there, but hey, they're just trying to help. They do a good job of it, too, and seem to know their stuff. The truth is, I would probably like to own a Sephora if I could.
Fifteen dollars for a mascara is more than my mom would let me pay for. She thinks that even seven or eight dollars for a Maybelline or Covergirl mascara is expensive. But hey, that's what nice relatives are for, right? Anyways, I love how this mascara gives me instant volume, length, and va-va-va-voom lashes. It doesn't smear or flake on me at all, which is great! If you're tempted to buy this mascara...go for it!
I picked this up because of the good reviews, at the grocery store of all places...where it was on sale. Yay! (I love sales):) Anyway, the texture of the cream is very lightweight, and I liked that it wasn't one of those thicker creams that refuses to absorb into my skin. When I put it on, there was a cooling/stinging sensation that felt kind of good. Upon putting it on, it seemed my skin looked a little smoother, but there wasn't anything special about it. So I gave it three lippies, because I liked how it made my skin look a little smoother and the feel of it, but in the long run, it didn't really do anything, so hence two lippies off.
Loose Powders -Clinique - Blended Face Powder and Brush

I bought this when I went to Sephora looking for a new loose powder. The lady that helped me reccomended Transparency 3. This turned out to be a GREAT match for my skin color. The powder itself goes on smoothly and doesn't look chalky - just very natural. However, the brush that it comes with is terrible - hence the one lippie off, because I wish the brush was better! but that's okay, I just apply it with my powder puff instead. :)
This is a good mascara. It lengthened my lashes really quickly and gave them lots of volume. It didn't flake or seem to smear, which is a definite plus:). This and most of the other Maybelline mascaras are my HG:)
My mom is extremely thrifty and would not let me buy the "expensive" regular Purpose cleanser, so I had to get the two or three bucks cheaper CVS version that says "Compare to Purpose'" on it. The ingredients for both are pretty much the same, though, so I don't think it made a difference. Anyway, the face wash has a nice lather and leaves my face with a fresh clean feeling. It does what it says it will, which is wash your face. It doesn't have any ridiculous claims like "included in this cleanser is ancient pink ostrich egg extract that will make your skin look airbrushed". My only problem with it (why I took off a lippie) is because it does seem it a bit TOO gentle at times, like it's washing your face but not DEEP cleansing washing it...maybe it's just me.
I got this powder as a gift and I like it! It doesn't look cakey or anything and goes on really well; very smoothly. Overall, it looks nice and is a good powder! :)
