pros: it came with 3...3! replacement pads. cons: took forever to curl my lashes. 5+ times to make a curl. =(
I really wanted to like this after reading about this amazing product. Its expensive. It doesn't have alcohol, leave no sticky residue or scent. However, it only made my skin red, break out and not happy. I gave this lotion a try on three separate occasions. The first was when my face was clear, no break out & no pimples. I only break out when I'm stressed and have my visitor. This...within 3 uses, I only use toner in the morning and night, made my cheeks red and pimples or pre pimples come out. I wanted to pick at my skin but there wasn't anything to pick at or pop. I know you're not suppose to but its my bad pet peeve now. I took a break and went back to my witch hazel. And when I broke out I tired it again. Did nothing. So disappointed. After a few months, once again clear face no new product was being used on my face except this one, it made my skin irritated, red and bumps again. Luckiely, witch hazel came to save my face.
Mascara -Maybelline - The Rocket Volum' Express Waterproof
mandiluk 5/9/2013 10:25:00 PM
This is the prettiest royal blue tube of mascara I ever owned. It has a big fatty brush, very similar to the Cover Girl lash blast mascara, so they are very short brissles and very sparce brissles. The wand itself is very round almost oval and doesn't move at all. It def darkens your lashes and holds a curl. Didn't notice much difference in volume and lengthening...so sorry not gonna repurchase
Highly highly recommend! I got a small sample to try and it has def see improvement in the texture of my skin. Fortunately, I don't suffer from acne or break outs often. I have one ore two pimples during that time of month and this has helped quickly clean and soften my skin. It left my skin super soft. I didn't even believe it. It goes on black and within 10 mins it dries up. it tightens your face, so it may be a little uncomfortable if you don't like masks like these. I can't wait to get my hands on the full size product!
Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15
mandiluk 5/3/2013 4:39:00 PM
This has grown to be one of my favorite lip products. I got this as a sephora birthday gift and i love both of the treatments. It comes in a little turn tube, so that your cap doesn't call off. It smells very sweet and goes on very smoothly. It feels very light when you put it on and doesn't show any hints of SPF except that it has it. So props to that because SPF is mucho important. The best part is that it stays on your lips and keeps it moisturized for a long time. Great great product!
I got a little sample of this and it was enough for me to say no no. This is a super liquify bb cream. I used the Naked liquid foundation before, which left a beautiful and flawfless look but broke me out, so I was a little hesitant that this would break me out. So far it hasn't. It doesn't give me as good as a coverage as the liquid foundation or the smashbox bb cream. What bothers me the most is the scent that it has. Its like weird plastic smell. As a lover of UD, I'm disappointed with this bb cream.
I really enjoyed this scrub, it reminds me a lot of the neutrogena naturals on. Has a very light and almost floral fragrance. It has very fine beads and left my skin feeling clean and fresh. I didn't notice any difference in skin brightening but was super happy that it didn't irritate or leave my sensitive skin red.
My first bb cream and i love it already. I use light/medium and it blends in smoothly and very well. It looks like my natural skin color and stays on all day!

Great great product for removing the toughest dirty brushes. I used it today and it has cleansed and made my brushes super soft. I actually left it in the cup for a minute and musta put too much solution because it broke on of my brushes. Luckiely it's not a favorite brush, but you live and learn. High recommend this to all the makeup lovers!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow in Tough as Taupe
mandiluk 3/18/2013 9:43:00 PM
I was very excited to try this out. I'm a big fan of taupes and maybelline. it goes on well, color pay off is very nice. You can use a little or build it up to be a dark taupe. My only con: it dries up super fast. I wasn't even denting the jar and I had to get rid of it because it dried up.
Liquid -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup SPF 20
mandiluk 3/17/2013 11:34:00 PM
One of my favorite DS foundations. I use the color fresh beige and I actually picked up a few bottles to test out before I chose this one. There is a large selection of shades for this foundation so you will def be able to find a shade that fits you. It is a liquid foundation with spf without the feeling of spf. Though I don't recommend spy makeup (I'm a believer that spf should be separate from makeup) it is very convenient and will protect you from the sun. It is a medium coverage foundation and sinks into the skin very quickly leaving a semi-matte finish. And the best part, I have never broken out in using this foundation. I love testing out new products and whenever my skin breakouts, I come back to this foundation and it has been a life saver in covering my blemishes without irritating it. It truly lives up to its name of being healthy skin liquid makeup.
Primer/ Corrector -Murad - Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer-Dewy
mandiluk 3/12/2013 9:14:00 PM
I had a little sample to try from a sephora purchase. Didn't do anything for my skin. It has a beige color to it and didn't feel like anything but an additional moisturizer to my skin. booooo.
Never fails maybelline. I have the rocket volume express in waterproof. The packaging is super cute, royal blue tube with a pointed top. The brush actually reminds me of the one-by-one mascara from maybelline but the formula is more wetter. I instantly notice the volume and even length to my lashes. love it!
Primer/ Corrector -Laura Geller - Spackle primer/corrector in Bronze
mandiluk 3/4/2013 10:54:00 PM
I really wanted to like this. But Laura Geller, your products leave too much shimmer. I have a bronzer/blush that leaves a lot of shimmer on my face. This is meant to be a primer. It leaves a very light shimmer across my face, when you put on foundation, you hardly notice it. But you will notice it on your hands and on your clothes and makeup if you are like me- I use my hands for applying concealer and foundation. I don't feel that it really smoothes out my face or "primes" meaning that it doesn't feel smooth like that silicone feeling. It is very light, so you hardly know that its on your face and absorbs into my skin well.
Powder -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder - Sandstorm
mandiluk 3/3/2013 10:36:00 PM
I think I may buy this over the Maybelline Matte Powder. It's a cheap, light weight, not cake powder and goes on and lasts for a long time. A lot longer than I recall of the Maybelline Matte Powder and it doesn't overwhelm your face with color. Highly recommend you girls & guys to try it!
