Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer
malco 5/21/2013 11:16:00 PM
I'll buy MU based on the colors, but when it comes to skincare, I will totally research reviews. I have been using this about a full week now. Love !!!! It sinks right in, gets rid of dryness and brightens my face. It was a bit steep in price, so I save my receipt in case I didn't like it. No extra clogs either, and it doesn't make me too shiney using under makeup. Might be my HG for summer. Love that it has antioxidents and is all natural too.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Lemon Drop SPF 15
malco 5/8/2013 11:02:00 AM
Bought this 6 months ago. It is way too hard of a product to be a lip balm. Nothing gets applied to my lips, no matter how hard I apply. Yuck!!! I tossed it.
I have had my eye on this several times. I am reluctant to buy LS because I like sheer colors plus the always pull pink (thanks SL). But on a whim I picked this up at Walgreens. To my suprise its a beautiful rosy color I see on a lot of models with a bit of a red undertone. I just dot it on to keep the sheerness that I like. It hasn't pulled pink so I am really happy with the color and will look at the other colors in this range.

Yuck! Harsh, leaves a film, drying. I feel the product is balling up, not my dead skin cells. Going back to my aloette enzyme peel.
Eye Makeup Remover -Maybelline - Flash Clean Clean Express Makeup Removing Lotion

I use this first when I wash the day of makeup off my face, has an oily feel so I use a foaming wash secondary. Really good at removing the makeup! Little squirt goes a long way with me. I like it for the gentleness and the way it removws all my makeup.
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Hyaluronic Power Moisture Hydrating Conditioner
malco 2/15/2013 9:58:00 AM
Picked this up during a rite aid cruise. It is very moisturizing and smoothing, my curly hair looks great using this !!!!!! It's my top pick conditioner now. Update- Yep this is my HG. It doesn't build up with daily use and my 3C curls look great- not dry. I've already used up a bottle within a few months and that is totally unheard of for me within a year, because I rotate so much. I bought some for my son as well. I love it!!!!!!!!!!
Eyes -Ardell - Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator Treatment Gel
malco 1/21/2013 11:36:00 PM
Along with dying my eyelashes with Roux black every few weeks, I have incorperated this gel into my night time beauty care routine. I picked up 2 at rite aid for 8$, so that's cheap. It's a milky clear and I brush on my upper and lower lashes. The results are pretty good, I have a bit of lengthening, the inside lashes are just about to touch my brows. My lashes also seem seperated better and healthy looking. I wipe some on my brows too. In the morning though I wash and rinse real good becuase I don't want to get any flakes built up from using this. So I will update in @ month to see if any more progress is gained. I don't use mascara daily because I am afraid to loose lashes, if I do just a few times a week. Update- Flaky- can't use daily
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Megalast Liquid Lip Color Raisin the Roof
malco 1/14/2013 11:35:00 PM
Picked these up at Walgreens today. I got the Raisin color and one of the rose colors. They remind me a bit of the Sephora stain LG's in texture. Application wise, I use a lip brush because they are a bit too pigmented for my taste, and didn't apply well with the applicater. They wear great, not drying or make my lips chapped, but I do use a little balm on top though. I like them, I am going to go back and look closer at the other colors. Cheap too.

I have these in Cherry & the orangy/coral one from this summer. They are great- good wearbale sheer to med coverage,long lasting and don't dry my lips put. Actually the Cherry is my HG color, really suits and brightens my face!!!!! I am always on the look out for any new colors they put out.
Conditioner -Garnier - Color Shield Fortifying Conditioner
malco 12/30/2012 1:45:00 AM
I bought this for a long road trip late spring. I had just gotten my hair colored at Aveda, which was pricey, so I want to preserve the color as long as possible. My hair typically gets brassy during summer, so I like this had UV protection. I love it !!! I always have a good hair day when I use this, makes my curly hair soft, thick, moisturized and easy to style. This is my top pick conditioner in my rotation of about 8 others I use. I have a few because I like different scents. I'm crazy that way. Long story short, it did make my hair color stay really strong for several months. Bought a back up today in fact.
I bought this a while back and just started using on my eyelashes, I use the color black. What I do is use Q tips and my big mirror, so I get every lash. It definetly darkens them. I like it because I don't always want to throw on mascara, and my bottom lashes really stand out just by using this product, and I normally don't wear mascara on the bottom lashes. I do it @ every 2 weeks. No irratation or problems. Will always keep this on hand.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow in Tough as Taupe
malco 11/13/2012 9:02:00 PM
I use this as an eyeliner. It's not glittery, but is very thick. Color turns out a grayish blue on me. I wished it was more of a brown taupe. It's good, lasts all day and applies pretty easily. I bought a few more colors, but I really don't like the glitter in some of them.
Treatments -Olay - Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir
malco 11/12/2012 11:31:00 AM
I have always had such finicky skin, it clogs easy and is flaky. Plus I have sun damage. Both the clogs and flakiness drive me crazy. I want smooth skin with out the hassle of babying it all the time. Especially after I put on my base. I have been using this glycolic elixer for 10 days. I really, really like it. My clogs are smaller and smaller and not refilling!!!! The lines are smother and most greatful of all, no flakiness !!!!!!!!! I use 2 pumps before bed, it's very moisturizing and comfortable on my face and neck. I am hoping this continues with the good results, I am very happy with it so far !!!! Wished I had bought it sooner. The price scared me away, but I was wrong it is a beautiful product!!!! Update: been using faithfully every night since I purchased. I really recommend it. My clogs are truly less and if I do get some they are very small. It has totally gotten rid of my flakys. Nothing ever has done this before. I have so many other moisturizers now, that just sit there. I will not use them again. My pores are smaller too, I am very happy I found this product, really got rid of my major skin issues.
