I am in love with this mascara. The price is totally fair, but if you got what you paid for then it should be more. This mascara goes above and beyond. It never clumps, it stays curled, it doesn't flake, it is easy to remove but doesn't fade on its own, the packaging is nice and the brush and formula are fantastic. Absolute favorite DS mascara.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Telescopic Explosion in Blackest Black

This mascara is terrible. If i could have given it a zero, I would. It clumps, flakes, runs, and overall just turns my lashes into a wet mess. It was given to me by a friend so I didn't waste money on it, but I recommend ANY mascara but this one. Seriously. I am so disappointed L'Oreal! will not be buying again.
Styling Products -Garnier - Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray
oliviacatherineheart 5/14/2012 5:28:00 PM
This product is really great. I only took off a lippie because it doesn't really hold the beautiful waves it makes. I like that you can style by the directions on the bottle or not and it still works well. It has great anti-frizz properties and smells FANTASTIC. I just wish it would hold the waves longer. I will repurchase.
I like this primer, but there are others that are better. (Primer Potion from Urban Decay or StayDon'tStray by Benefit) It is alright. IT holds my eyeshadows for about 2 hours, but my oily skin apparently likes it better the other way. After about 4 hours, I have creases and fading. It's too expensive for the actual product and Primer Potion is a much better value. Most likely not repurchasing. <3
I actually got this in a mini kit of 3: BadGal Lash, High Beam, and StayDon'tStray primer. But this review is on High Beam. I can not say anything bad about this product. Whenever my makeup is on the caked side, this fixes it right up! I put it on my cheek bones, the bridge of my nose, and occasionally on my brow bone. I love it. <3
AMAZING. This powder foundation has the nest coverage, skin benefits, and over performance of any foundation I have EVER used. It mostly keeps me shine-free, but I know that 100% shine free all day is impossible for me. The Original Foundation (Powder) is equally as amazing. In fact, I have both. The whole starter set (Foundation, Bronzer, MineralVeil and brushes) are fantastic. I will forever be a fan. <3
This product is very good. I have an Combination-very oily skin type. It has awesome coverage, plus the texture is so utterly smooth. It feels like you aren't wearing foundation! I am shade 02 Ivory. I am slightly on the fairer side with yellow undertones. The price is a good one, plus I use the Dream Bouncy Blush in Pink Petal over it. The only thing I did not like about it was that if I did not cleanse well at night, I had small bumps on the surface of my skin in SOME areas. But since I love doing my regimen, this is no problem.I will repurchase. <3
For me, this product is a GOD-SEND. I have oily skin except where my cheeks get slightly dry in the winter or after harsh products. I got this from a close family friend, so close in fact that i got it for 1/2 off. It seriously fixes spots OVERNIGHT. It is not overly drying, but the 5% benzyl peroxide works so well. I do not like that I have to order it, but the product's performance totally makes up for it. Absolutely will repurchase. <3
I do not have terrible acne, just acne-prone skin with a few blemishes. I also have a very oily T-zone with Combo/Oily cheeks and chin. These are a blessing. I use them as a slight exfoliator AFTER a hot shower. The Lycopene in them (the tomato-derived ingredient) is awesome. It toned down redness and size overnight! At about $8 for 50 pads, they are a great deal. I will repurchase. <3
I really like this product. I am very picky about my lip color because i want longevity, natural color, and hydration. Now usually, stains are not hydrating. This one, however, is great. I got the one in Dawn, a very natural color. It doesn't dry out my lips! It also blends and smooths over my lips very nicely. The only reason I took off a lippie is because it is quite expensive for drug store. (about 7 dollars) Also, the lip balm on the end is great, but there is no scent or color. Just a little bit of shine/buttery texture. I will repurchase.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof
oliviacatherineheart 5/8/2012 6:19:00 PM
Ok, let me say this first: I did not buy this product intentionally. I needed a mascara that was volumizing, but I did not know I was buying Waterproof. Turns out, it's EXACTLY what I needed. The packaging is nice, and the brush and formula are great. Great Volume! I didn't expect any length, but I was pleasantly surprised. I took off one lippie because the staying power in the water is mediocre, but it doesn't run so much as little clumps of it come off. Great though, and I will repurchase. <3
