Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Model in a Bottle

I'm also very surprised by the ratings of this product. I love it. It does have its drawbacks though, such as the very hairspray like smell and initial feel. But that dissipates quickly and its all fine. It helps my makeup stay on forever. As the prev poster wrote, it will not look like I applied it all ten minutes ago, it shows some signs of wear. But its a million times better than if I had not worn it at all in this humidity! I used to use bronzer and by the time I got to work, it was gone. Now I get home from a full day of work, and I still look bronzy! Wish it wasnt a glass bottle however!
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Professional Lash Eyebrow Comb

I love this little comb. My mascara will often get clumpy because I like to use 2 or 3 coats. So, this is a necessity for me. I would never even bother with a platic comb again.
I love the "idea" of this. But I could never find a color that would work on me. I have light brows, but they are ash, not golden. For some reason, this line thinks that if you have lighter brows that they must be a golden color. Ugh. The wax was nice, held them in place on crazy brow days. i have moved on however...Also, I wish Smashbox would get a clue and make their packaging different. I hate the screw off lids as I always misplace them. I wish they would use a flip top package for everything!
I hate to bring down the ratings of this, but I must. I hated this gloss. I absolutely hated it. First, the formula is awful. This was my first dazzleglass, and I will never buy another. It literally feels like you have honey on your lips! It is so damn sticky I was afraid my lips would never separate again! The color was pretty, which is why I bought it in the first place. But it collected on the inside of my lips in such a weird way. Sorry, returned!
I love this color. It is the perfect pink pop on my complexion. It doesnt look like Im overly made up or trying too hard. It just looks naturally pink. I love it! MAC can be hit or miss for me as far as lipcolors. Some of them are wayyyyy too glittery, and frankly, Im not 12 anymore. Some of the formulas (Dazzleglass) are so thick it feels like you have honey on your lips. YUCK! This I will buy again - and again!
I have had very bad luck with brow products. I guess I have hard to match brows. I went to MAC and asked for a shadow that would work for me as a brow powder. I was given Cork (shadow). I got it home and it was way too warm for me. It didnt look appropriate at all. So, I took it back and asked someone else what I should use. My MA pulled out this little gem. I really wanted a shadow as I felt I would get more for my money that way, but once I saw how this color matched my brows perfectly, I was sold. I do think this is too pricey based on how long this will actually last. But when you find something you love, you will pay!
Brows -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Anastasia Brow Powder

I must be in the minority here, but I didnt enjoy this product at all. I did receive it in a kit, but even still it was insanely pricey. The colors did not match my hairs at all and make them look fake. On top of that, even though the product has never been dropped, it seems to want to crumble. Not my favorite.
I bought this when it first came out about 5 years ago. I have very dry and thick curly hair. So, I am always on a quest to find a good hair moisturizer. This intrigued me as it was so different from anything I have ever seen before. So I got it home and followed the directions exactly and........AWFUL. This was supposed to moisturize my hair, but it left it feeling dry and brittle. It's so weird. Also, I hate the oily feeling of this. Will not re-purchase.
Although I am not entirely thrilled with this top coat, I would buy it again simply because I am a single mom and onlyhave a limited time to do manicures. I need my nails to dry PRONTO so I can go about my daily life with my son. However, this may dry them quickly, but it also makes my mani last days SHORTER. It makes the color peel off of them like Ive never seen before. It also gives me that annoying shrinkage at the tips unless you are very careful and try to cover the tip as well. On a good note, it makes a full manicure (base coat, two color coats and this top coat) dry in five minutes or under! About halfway through this expensive bottle, it is unusable because it gets too thick and goopy. I even bought the thinner from Sally's but the product did not perform the same after. Such is life I suppose!
Misc Beauty Tools -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Anastasia Tweezers
mistyct 5/25/2009 7:28:00 AM
I bought these tweezers as part of a set. Even still, they were very pricey. Like insanely pricey. However, I have never used better tweezers - ever. They grab every little hair. They are very sharp though! Be careful not to poke yourself.
Ok, I love this razor. They are exensive though, as any blade refills are. I love the 5 blades. It gives me a nice clean shave and makes my legs feel very silky. The shower holder case that mine came with was useless however.
I like that this has a mirror in the compact. It makes touch ups throughout the day alot easier. The actual product does seem to work well. It does not change the color of my makeup, which is key.
Ok, this little compact is too cute for words. The product inside works very well. I like the ideal that you pat this gel like substance into the shine rather than swirling a powdered brush all over your face, which can disturb your makeup. It is very pricey. I believe I paid $28 for this TINY compact. Ugh.
Ok, this is an ok mascara. It is a d/s mascara and that being said, it is "just" ok. The brush is HUGE and sometimes makes it very difficult to get all of my lashes coated. However, "if" I can manage it, then this formula is terrific. I'd love this mascara if the brush wasn't so damn obnoxious.
Eye Shadow -BeneFit Cosmetics - Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner - Tattle Tale

I returned this one. I am in love with Skinny Jeans, but honestly, this one did nothing for me. It was just a shimmery hot mess. It didnt blend easily, it just was bleh on me. Sorry to ruin the perfect ratings.
