Shampoo -Dove - Refresh+Care - Invigorating Dry Shampoo

Was going to use this tonight until it wouldn't let any product out. What. the. hell? I've only used it 2-3 times. The same thing happened to the first can that I bought. I thought it was plugged up and there was little product left, which was strange because I didn't use it much at all. I'm disappointed I spent $6 on 30% usage from two cans. I also have Suave Keratin dry shampoo. I hope i don't it doesn't have the same problem.
I've gotten 4 other Lip Perfection tubes. This one looked pretty in the store but when i put it on my lips, I looked like a clown. I'm NC 35--don't think corals/oranges look good on me. Besides this color, I've enjoyed the other colors that I've purchased: Dazzle, Darling, Fervor, and Heavenly.
I had purchased this lipgloss when it first came out. The first time around, I didn't like it due to the chemical smell/taste. I don't eat my lipgloss but the scent really bothers me and lingers in my mouth. I just bought this again and nothing has changed except for the tube; it's nicer, but the gross scent is the same. I'll still use it, but only until it makes me truly sick. I'm digging the new Rimmel glosses, which smell way better!
Treatments -AcneFree - Acne and Blackhead Terminator

This product does nothing for my zits. I'm going back to Walmart's generic brand, Equate's acne gel, which I believe is a knock off of OXY 10, which is 10% benzoyl peroxide.
This is the second eye primer I've ever used. UDPP was the first and the container was not good. The bottle dropped and broke. I had to scrape it out and put the product in the jar; it was something I'd have to do anyway since it's hard to get the product with the wand. Lorac's Behind the Scenes is everything I've ever wanted in an eye primer. The consistency is smooth and easy to blend. My eyeshadows last all day. I can't tell you how much I love this product. Good job Lorac!
I knew it was too good to be true. Unfortunately, it broke me out.
I have the original version. I love the smell because I grew up with this in the bathroom. I buy it for nostalgic reasons, but it doesn't do a good job removing make up because I always use a toner after wards and the cotton takes off a lot of dirt/make up. This would be good for when I'm not wearing make up but want to freshen up. Going to try the Triple Clean version with Tricolsan since I have acne prone skin. I'll still buy this :)
Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild - Natural Wear Lip Shimmer
neverender 11/26/2010 6:56:00 AM
I got this in 106, the berry color. There is a slight minty tingle sensation when you apply it to your lips. I was hoping this might be sheer with light shimmer but it applies heavily and too dark on my lips, so I swipe it on lightly and sometimes put gloss on top. Also, there is no shimmer at all. It's not moisturizing either, I find myself reapplying often b/c I can feel my lips drying up. And it has a chemical taste. I'm really on the fence with this one, I don't like it, but I don't hate it. I just wish I never bought it because I absolutely hate wasting product. But again, it was less than $2. On second thought, I think I'm just gonna toss it away. Out of sight, out of mind. lol.
Makeup Brushes -Unlisted Brand - Posh Mini Brush Set

I love the foundation brush so much I bought another one as a back up. I'm very picky about blush and powder brushes so I don't think I'll be picking those up in this brand because the hairs look kinda cheap, but I am going to pick up the smaller eye shadow brushes.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Stylish Smokes in Natural Smokes
neverender 10/24/2010 12:30:00 AM
I have this in Charcoal and Natural smokes. Maybelline shadows used to suck so much in the past--they were hardly pigmented and chalky. The new formulas are so much better, but not great. I love the dark smokey eye look and these shadows are perfect for it. Make sure to blend well.
I first bought this in Tender Pink and Delicate Mauve. Tender Pink goes on sheer with shimmers. I thought about returning the Mauve color b/c it doesn't look so pretty in the tube, but I decided to use it and it turned out to be one of my favorite lip glosses ever. I've never used up a lip gloss so fast, I just bought my 2nd tube of the Mauve. It's light, sheer with color, and not too pigmented, it does have tiny gold sparkles in it. I JUST LOVE IT!!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I wanted to try this for the longest time but I have very oily lids so I was skeptical about its performance. That and the price deterred me from purchasing it. So my lil sweet sis who works at Macy's bought it using her discounts. I'm glad she did because it works. I was considering buying Lorac's new eye primer as well because of the better packaging and I've read some good reviews for it. I will purchase that when I am running low on UDPP. I feel so comfortable wearing eye shadows now and don't have the need to check myself out in the mirror and retouch my eyeshadow all the time. THANK YOU!!!!
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals in 1.2, fairly light
neverender 4/19/2010 6:37:00 PM
My friend gave me a sample of this. I have oily hormonal acne prone skin and this does not make my skin look any better. It doesn't control oil very well and I end up getting a few bumps the next day. I've tried many mineral powders and it's safe to say that none has worked for me. I think this type of make up works well on clear skin. I'm going to stick with my usual liquid and powder.
I've always worn medium pink colors, but lately I want to try some type of red color or make my lips a little darker. I was at Rite Aid and they had a sale on Rimmel Moisture Renew lipsticks. I picked one up in Rose Blush and saw Wet N Wild lipsticks for 99 cent and decided to get Copper Dust after staring at it for the longest time. It's a warm red with some gold shimmer. Anyway, what I like to do is put a sheer swipe of this and put the Rose Blush or any type of pink lip gloss over on top. The color result is so juicy and gorgeous.
This is my second time trying this out. It wasn't great the first time around. I just assumed it was reformulated. It's clumpy, flakes, and worst of all, it makes my lashes break or fall off, especially when I use eyelash curler after applying the mascara. I know it's better to curl before, but I do it for extra curl.. Still, that shouldn't happen at all. My faves are Maybelline Full and Soft and Max Factor's 2000 Calorie.
