Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush Waterproof
nearyroth 8/6/2012 4:36:00 PM
I've tried so many of the Volum Express line that I thought NO MORE! Though time and time again, Maybelline draws me in with their bright mascara packaging. I actually like this one.Actually, this is my favorite mascara ever. The flexible wand is kind of flimsy, but it works. The brush is very nice. This mascara separates with no clumps, lengthens and volumizes! Love it! Previously, I thought no mascara could beat my favorite Tarte Lights Camera Lashes. But this one did, at 1/3 of the price. It has held up through this week's 100 degree weather also. Will repurchase!
I love this! I have the Shampoo & Conditioner from this line and I have a HUGE size of each! That's how much I love this! This stuff is insanely expensive but worth it. It smells so good! Like tropical and it reminds me of summer. It nourishes my hair a lot, doesn't dry it out and leaves my hair shiny and smelling good. It also is thick and lathers well. I love this and will repurchase if I can't find a cheaper dupe.
Oh how I love Lush. I only get things once in a while because Lush is expensive but I never regret it. The ladies in Lush do demnostrations of the products for you and are very sweet and helpful. The store has an amazing fruity scent and I also get something. If you only get one thing there get the Rose Jam Bubbleroon Bubble Bar. Heaven in Lush.
Bronzers -Too Faced - Pink Leopard Bronzing Powder

I like this but it isn't dark enough to be a bronzer. I like it as a highlighter though. I don't know if I got a bad one or what but this doesn't show up as a bronzer at all. The packaging is super cute with a little mirror and in a little box. It comes with a lot of product so it should last a while. I was first introduced to this by my cousin, and it looks beautiful on her. I probably would buy again for a nice highlighter.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - 080 Strawberry Shortcake

I love the glossy finish of these and this color! It's a perfect baby pink. It doesn't dry out your lips. I like using NYX's Mega Shine Gloss in Smokey Look over this because the color is really cool toned and I have very warm skin. I don't wear it alone but with the right gloss this is amazing!
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Gumdrop
nearyroth 4/7/2012 11:11:00 PM
Love this. Perfect pale milky baby pink. This doesn't give much color payoff but it has enough that you can tell I'm wearing some sort of lip color. Very cute lilac packaging and actual color of the balm. Moisturizing and pretty color. Love!
I love love love this. Most pink eye shadows make people look tired and dead , but not this. It isn't as pigmented as I would like but you can build it up. I use UDPP and a pink base under this, this all over, a brownish color outer corner, white inner corner and it looks stunning! MAC is always sold out of this when I go but I check everytime I go to the mall and finally they had it in stock. This is a lovely pinky rose color with a golden undertone. I love that about it. One of MAC's best eyeshadows. Lasts all day and can look bright on neutral depending on how you wear it.
Oh my gosh. HG black eyeliner. Before I found this I used Tarte emphasEYES amazonian clay gel liner, but that was in a pot and it took work to get a precise line and not to mention that it is very expensive. This is basically that in a pencil. The are definitely UD 24/7 liner dupes. The color range of these is incredible. This is pigmented-VERY! I like the creaminess and the ease to put this one. It literally take less than a minute to do both eyes. This doesn't smudge AT ALL! It lasts all day on the waterline, which most pencil liners don't(I'm looking at you Estee Lauder!) I absolutely love it and will be getting more colors!
I love this! It doesn't really brighten your smile and make your teeth white but it's a nice minty clear lip gloss. Similar to a toothpaste scent. The packaging is adorable and this easily fits into a pocket or purse. I like this as a lip gloss over a colorful lip stick or alone. Found at Ulta for 4.50 and I will repurchase this.
Eye Shadow -NYX - Jumbo Eye Pencil in Strawberry Milk
nearyroth 4/6/2012 4:06:00 PM
This is the least pigmented Jumbo Pencil out of all that I have(Which isn't much but whatever) Although, I love using this as a base to my MAC Expensive Pink eyeshadow. Of course, I use Urban Decay Primer Potion under it or else it will crease, but it makes the pink eye shadow pop. It's a multi-dimensional pink that is very pretty. It's a pale color and has a tad bit of shimmer. Blends out nicely and is very creamy. I love this, but has limited use- a base or a shadow if you can get it to work.
I love this. I own 3 NYX Jumbo Pencils, and this is the most multi-purpose one! This works as a base for any color at all, and inner corner highlight, brow highlight, cheek bone highlight and anything you can think of! It's creamy, pigmented and goes on smoothly. I love this and recommend this to anyone! Packaging get's a 4 because I wastes a lot of product to sharpen and it's hard to find a sharpener to fit these.
I picked this up at Ulta and I'm so glad I did. These are creamy as heck and very pigmented. Smokey Look is a beautiful pale pinky brown. I discovered that this is basically the more pigmented and less glittered version of MAC's Dazzleglass in Sublime Shine. Except that I prefer this over my MAC Dazzleglass. I like wearing this over Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake, Creme Brulee, Gumdrop, or Peach Parfait. As you can see this works over a lot of lip sticks, ore even just by it self. This comes with a TON of product and is cheap for the quality of the product. The packaging is adorable with a little bow on the top of the cap. I also love the slant tip applicator. Also, this has glitters in it but not a ton, so beware if you don't like glitter. The glitters in it are less gritty than Dazzleglasses. This smells like cherry's. I don't like the scent but you can only smell it when you open the tube, not on your lips so it's ok.
Oh how I love this. I had a hard time at Lush deciding between Rose Jam Bubberoon or the Yuzu and Cocoa one. I decided on this beacause it is ADORABLE and has a rose jam in the middle. It's has an amazing creamy feeling and smells like heaven! It smells like roses and vanilla and softens the skin really well. This isn't cheap but I enjoyed it and will continue to purchase.
Palettes -Unlisted Brand - Giovi Eye Shadow Palettes

I have A 16 color palette. My mom bought it for me for Valentine's day last year, and I am SO glad she did. The eyeshadows are super pigmented. I can create millions of looks with this. It has white, pinks, browns, coppers, blues, greens, and greys. I love the pinks and white. They are more pigmented than a lot of my MAC eyeshadows. I agree with someone earlier who said one is a MAC Club dupe. The dark green is similar. I have MAC Club and I have to say they are pretty similar. I think you can get this at Rite Aid. The packaging is very sturdy and the best part is that under the eyeshadows is a little tray that is a perfect size for any of my eyeshadow brushes. I keep my Eco-Tools eyeshadow brush in there and I travel with this palette anywhere, I took this across the world all the way to Asia with me. This thing survived 20 hours of airplane and car travel. None of the shadows cracked, while my stila palette broke and I had to throw it away. I would reccomend this palette to anyone! I love this I almost use it every day!
Treatments -Clean & Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment

Don't like this. Smells bad, stings really bad once you put it on a pimple and it honestly doesn't do. Whenever I get a pimple, I put this on and it doesn't do anything except sting.
