I love this mascara! This is the best mascara that I have ever used so far and it is better than Diorshow blackout and other department store mascaras. Im surprised that the ratings are low for L'oreal's carbon black mascara. It does everything that I would want a mascara to do.
I thought that this cleanser was so so and this would not be my HG cleanser.This cleanser came with the Oasis set along with the moisturizer, eye cream and hydrating booster. I bought the Oasis set because I mostly wanted the moisturizer and my friend who is a sales associate recommended that I buy it. I wouldnt buy this cleanser by itself because I feel that its pricey and not worth the money but I would not mind purchasing the Oasis set again since the cleanser already comes with it and I save money by buying the set. I dont use the H2O cleanser daily but I prefer to use it once in a while if my face feels dirty and greasy in the middle of the day or after working out. Pros: I like that after I wash my face, my skin does not have that tight dry feeling that other cleansers leave and it leaves my skin moisturized. The cleanser smells nice, it has that ocean scent. Cons: Its too expensive, I wouldnt pay $24 for it. I dont like the texture of the cleanser because its too watery. There is not enough product in the bottle and if it was used everyday, it would run out fast. Although my skin does feel moisturized, my face does not feel completely clean after using this cleanser because it doesnt completely wash off my powder foundation.
H2O plus Face Oasis is my HG moisturizer. my face always feels healthy, moisturized and refreshed with this moisturizer. :D My only complaints is that I wish that this product wasnt packaged in a jar and I wish that it wasnt so expensive.
I recently bought this blush from the Cabazon outlet for only $10 and I have to say that Im just in love with the Miel Glace blush. On me, it shows up as a very natural peachy pink without the whole its obvious that Im wearing blush look. Once, I run out of this lancome blush, Im definitely going to buy another one. :]
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Foaming Facial Cleanser - Sensitive Skin
peachgirly 10/8/2009 12:36:00 AM
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this cleanser! I finally found a face wash that does not irritate my sensitive skin( especially when Retin A Micro's side effects appear) or dry out my face like other cleansers. Thank you Clean and Clear! :D
I really wanted to like Revlon's eyeliner after hearing positive things from other people. However, this eyeliner just didnt work for me. After applying it, it smudged like crazy in about one hour which resulted in the raccoon/zombie look. :/
I love the color of this eyeliner and it makes my brown eyes stand out. When I apply this eyeliner, it shows up as a navy blue with a little shimmer. However, a problem I have with it is that it tends to smudge on my lower lash line in a few hours after applying it. Another con is the price but I guess if its Chanel, then its going to be expensive.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Sense - Daytime Protective Emulsion
peachgirly 10/4/2009 3:55:00 PM
Hmmm...I have a love hate relationship with this product. I have a friend who is a Usana associate and he gave me this sense moisturizer as a present so good thing that I didnt have to pay for it. Pros: I love that its preservative free and it does not have added ingredients that will irritate my sensitive skin. This moisturizer feels light and it moisturizes my skin without that heavy and greasy feel. Also, it smells really nice. Cons: The SPF is low so I have to use a sunscreen on top of the moisturizer. If I wore the sense moisturizer by itself then my face will get sunburned. I wish that Usana would have this moisturizer in a higher spf. Another con is the price. I would buy the moisturizer again if I could afford it but I'm going to try to find something that works just as well even though its going to have preservatives.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Age Defense Face Shield SPF 90+
peachgirly 9/26/2009 7:42:00 PM
The only time that I ever use this sunscreen is when I go to the beach. What I dont like about this sunscreen is that it feels very heavy and greasy on my face. One pro about the Neutrogena sunscreen is that it protects my face for the entire day at the beach and I dont get sunburned at all. For an everyday sunscreen, I would prefer to use Clinique's Super City sunblock in SPF 40.
All I can say is that I HATE Lash Blast and this is the WORST mascara that I have ever used.I regret trying to use it all up for 3 months because I started out with full eyelashes and now most of my eyelashes are gone. It made a lot of my eyelashes fall out and now I have bald spots on my upper lash line. I never had any problems with other mascaras until I tried lash blast. Maybe I might be allergic to one of the ingredients in this mascara.
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - Wrapped With Love by Hilary Duff
peachgirly 9/26/2009 2:44:00 PM
All I can say about Wrapped With Love is that the scent is absolutely amazing and I just love it! On me, I get a combination of a floral, honeydew, raspberry and vanilla scent. I get lots of compliments from people whenever I wear it. I remember the first time that I tried this perfume was when I was at the shopping mall in Hawaii and the new Hilary Duff perfume was on display with all of the other high end perfumes. Randomly, I decided to try this perfume because the pink bottle caught my eye and it stood out from all of the other perfume bottles. After spritzing it, I just loved the scent immediately and I knew that I had to buy it. I noticed that Macys doesnt sell Wrapped With Love anymore and so far I know that only Kohls and Target sell it. I really hope that it does not get discontinued. Also, I wish that Wrapped with love was sold in a larger bottle since its only sold in a 1.7 oz bottle. Definitely try Wrapped With Love whenever you have the chance! :D
Ew, this is the worst mascara ever made. I dont understand why this mascara was overhyped back then. I used to think that it was the best mascara because of all of the awards and recognition that it recieved. All I can say is poor me because I didnt know any better and I used to wear this horrible stuff from middle school to my freshmen year of high school. XD It does everything that you would not want a mascara to do. It does absolutely nothing to my eyelashes. It clumps it like crazy and it makes my eyelashes look like spider legs.
Maybelline's full and soft mascara is one of my HG mascaras right next to Lancomes hypnose. I was looking for a inexpensive drugstore mascara so that my wallet would get a break from spending so much money on department store mascaras. After reading all of the reviews on here, i decided to try it. and now I love it! This mascara is something that I wear everyday. It gives a natural look without going overboard with the dramatic fake eyelash look. Pros: -Holds a curl very well -Lengthens my lashes -Volumizes -Does not flake -Does not irritate my sensitive eyes especially since I wear contact lenses -Easy to remove - My eyelashes feel soft and light - Does not make my eyelashes fall out like Cover Girl's lash blast Cons: There are no cons except that I wished that the packaging looked nice like the define a lash mascaras. I hope that this mascara does not get discontinued since I noticed that many stores do not stock up on the full and soft mascara and it is always placed at the bottom of the shelves.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Lust
peachgirly 8/6/2009 5:37:00 PM
UD's 24/7 eyeliner in lust is definitely my HG eyeliner!!! I wear it every single day and I get lots of compliments. :D Pros: the color is gorgeous doesnt smudge on my lower lash line. yay! no raccoon eyes! stays on for the entire day without reapplying the texture is creamy and smooth very easy to apply makes my brown eyes stand out does not irritate my sensitive eyes Cons: the only thing I can think of is the price. it would be great if sephora's flashy eyeliners had an imitation of UD's lust. :-/
Chanels Double Perfection compact is definitely my HG foundation. I love it so much that I dont think that I would be able to live without it. It does everything that I would want a foundation to do. It covers up all of my acne scars and it evens out my skin tone. It makes my skin look so flawless and perfect that many people compliment me on how good my skin looks even though my skin is far from perfect. One con that I can think of is the price but I would say that its definitely worth it. :D
