Brows -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Anastasia Brow Gel
mscaseyray 3/12/2008 12:01:00 AM
Let me start by saying that this product is pricey BUT it works! I bought Sephora brow gel first b/c it was about $10 cheaper and it was horrible...it didn't do a thing! Anastasia brow gel lives up to its promise. My eyebrows stay in place...they don't look like there is anything in them and that's exactly what I was looking for. I will continue to use this product and I'm very pleased.
I love this eyeshadow. The packaging is awesome because the pan isn't glued in it's got a magnet on the bottom so it pops right out. Also, it stays on forever! I still wear makeup primer (UD Primer Potion) but I have extra oily eyelids and this eyeshadow stays fresh looking all day. I will definitely buy again.
The gloss is very pretty and it smells great. It lasts a few hours on my lips, which is more than most glosses. It needs to be worn over lipstick b/c the colors are very sheer. I dislike that about it. I don't think I'd purchase again simply b/c it's expensive ($19 I think) and it needs a lipstick under it for you to be able to see it. I'm glad I tried it but it won't be a staple for me.
This blush is just beautiful! It's a peachy/coral shimmer and it gives me the nicest glow. I am PPP with yellow undertones and brown hair. This livens my face up so much. I love, love, love the packaging because of the surface area. It's this big round circle so it's plenty of room for my blush brush to swipe. You get a lot for your money too! Check out www.sephora.com for a picture!
If you get raccoon eyes then this is the product for you. I do. I even stopped wearing mascara on my bottom lashes to try to prevent it but it didn't no matter what mascara I wore. This mascare WORKS! Now, you won't have fake looking lashes, so if you like the glam look then this is not for you. It's lengthens and gives my lashes a nice curl too, but it's very natural looking. I tried this on at Sephora. I put it on one eye and had my regular mascara still on the other eye. No kidding, it was like it lifted my lashes up or something. They curled instantly and opened my eye up. I feel beautiful wearing it and I wish it weren't so expensive but it's worth it to me.
This is the best file I've ever used and I'm hooked. I saw my nails too (like the reviewer before me). I'm always in a hurry and a SC at Trade Secret suggested it to me since my nails were always peeling. Well, it works!
This is the coolest product I've ever bought. The package is awesome, the color is perfect for just about everyone and you can use it as a highlighter or blush (I use it as blush). And, it lasts forever! I've had this stuff for going on three years now and I've still got 1/3 left. It's a must have and eventhough it's expensive, it's worth it!
Treatments (Eye) -Mary Kay - TimeWise Age Fighting Eye Cream

This is the first eye cream I've used but I really like it. I have oily skin so I thought for the longest that I didn't need to use any kind of moisturizers (stupid me!). It is light, makes my eyes feel refreshed and you get a really large amt for the price...most eye creams I've seen have been in small pots but this comes in a .65 oz tube. I really like Mary Kay products and this is one is just another great one!
I have oily eye lids and without this my eye make up would be ruined before lunch. I LOVE this product!!! I've tried other primers before that worked as well (MAC paints do the same thing for me) but they're colored where this product is colorless so it doesn't effect the overall color of your eye makeup. This is a keeper as far as I'm concerned and it's very reasonably priced.
Loose powder is excellent for oily skin and I think that this is a wonderfully inexpensive loose powder. I have tried MAC and Neutrogena and this is by far better than they are. I have fair skin so I use the Ivory 2. I have had this for approx 1 yr now and it's still 1/2 full!!! I love that loose powder is better for my acne-prone, oily skin but I also love that loose powders last sooo much longer than pressed ones. I intend to continue to use this product. It's awesome!
Liquid -Clinique - Clarifying Makeup Clear Skin Formula [DISCONTINUED]

I have acne-prone skin and this product doesn't break me out or make my skin feel oily. It's a medium coverage which I love. If I had better skin I would wear tinted moisturizer b/c I don't like heavy makeup, so this is the lightest coverage I can use and still cover up any blemishes. If you have acne or oily skin and you are sick of wearing thick, un-natural looking makeup then this is for you. It lasts a long time too!
This product works well for me. I tried it a few years ago and didn't follow the regimen like I should have and I didn't see much improvement, but when my Acne continued to get worse and I got serious about taking better care of my skin I tried it again (about 6 mos ago). I use all three products in the morning and most nights and as I write this I have zero blemishes. I still get a few when I start each month, but other than that my face is clear and my scars are fading. When I started using it again six months ago I counted approx 30 blemishes on my face. Of all of the products I've tried this one works wonders for my skin and I'm so glad I found it.
I agree with the previous reviewer in that I sometimes wonder if Pantene is taking over the world! Half of the shampoo aisle is taken up with their products and they are AWFUL for your hair!!!! BAD, BAD, BAD for your hair. There's so much wax in their products and it continues to coat your hair with each use...that's why you can use it one time and it makes your hair feel great and then after that you don't get the same effect. Don't use this product!
This product is cheap and I love that aspect of it, but I look like a raccoon before 5pm...It thickens and lengthens but it's clumpy and it gets all over my lower and upper eye lids. I'm still in search of the perfect mascara. I've read advice that you shouldn't spend a lot on a mascara, but there's got to be one better than this for the same price.
Styling Products -KMS California - Curl-Up Curling Balm

I have wavy, thick shoulder length hair. I need a product that makes my hair curly and it isn't crunchy at all. It takes about a nickel size amt and I have really thick hair. The thing I love most about this product is it makes my curls bouncy and natural looking. I've tried Frizz Ease Dream Curls, TiGi Curls Rock and Biolage curl enhancer and none have worked as well as this product. It's not cheap but it's worth it!!!
