Foundations -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One
pinkhart 1/23/2012 4:57:00 PM
This is my first BB cream so I can't compare it to anything else. I bought the light/medium shade and it matches my skin tone perfectly. Great consistency. As someone mentioned before, a little goes a long way. Not overly fragrant but it does have a very pleasant almost flowery scent. I dont have much to cover so for me its heaven sent. I evens out my skintone beautifully. Packaging is great and travel friendly. Price isnt bad. I got mine on sale @ CVS. I will definitely be purchasing this again. I just hope that it does not get discontined. . .
Mascara -L'Oreal - Voluminous Million Lashes - waterproof

This is definitely HG status. .. My absolute favorite mascara!!!! Im so happy that i finally tried this and wish i had tried it much earlier. It holds curl like no other for me and does not flake at all. This replaces Lashblast. I use a couple of coats and i get beautiful defined long lashes. I also get plenty of volume with this. This is a wonderful product. I truly hope that this does not get discontinued. Im not a fan of Maybelline but this is great... Try this!!
Cleansers -L'Oreal - Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser
pinkhart 7/20/2011 1:24:00 PM
This product is great!!! I cant tell you how many bottles I've used but I know its more than 5... that's saying alot because I always change facial cleansers. I have sensitive combo skin and this is great.,. I use this wwith my Okay brush cleanser and my skin is left clean and radiant. No over drying no irritation. Packaging is great. The little scrubber isnt bad, it can be washed and reused... A definate winner!!?
Wow, what a beautiful red!!! This is definitely not for the faint @ heart.. I absolutely love this color. It is a true red. The color is some what close to Revlon's Just Bitten in Gothic. The formula is divine, as other reviewers have noted. Its very moisturizing. Lasting power is amazing!!! I got about 4 hours wear and it leaves a wonderful stain behind. I intensify the stain by applying Gothic underneathe... I'm impressed by the sleek packaging. Price isn't bad at $7.49 USD @ CVS. I know I could've gotten it cheaper @ Walmart but its been a difficult color to come by so I wasn't going to leave it. Its definitely my HG lippie. Next time I go iut out I'm definitely getting backups for this. I never do that for lippies. CoverGirl please don't discontinue....
I luckily got this as a GWP... I don't know maybe I got a bad batch, but what a disgusting odor. It smelled rancid! My daughter even commented about how nasty it smells. I don't know how it comes packaged or the sale price, but I know i won't ever spend a dime on this!!
This HG material. By far, one of the best blushes out there. W'n'W, you've come a looong way!! It is a beautiful pink kind of mauvey color. You dont need alot bcs like all the color icon line, a little goes a long way. Great color payoff, lasts all day. Packaging and brush are ehh but who cares. This baby really delivers. I use mine with my beautblender and the results are spectacular. Def recommended and def buy again.
So I purchased this a couple of months ago. 1st of all the packaging. Revlon, the middle ages are over. Pump please? The glass jar is workable but not the best. The smell is very plasticy. Smells like your car is getting spray painted. I definitely can't use this everyday bcs I will break out. But either way this is HG material. When combined with the beautyblender: Wow, it gives a beautiful airbrush finish! I have Soft Nude and matches perfectly. I use this only to go out but not on a regular basis. Price is not the worst, especially when you get it @ Walmart. There are other drugstore foundations that are more expensive and totally not worth it. All in all, I love, love, love it!!!
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Tinted Lip Balm - Pink Blossom
pinkhart 4/3/2011 9:02:00 PM
I love these tinted lip balms!!! I'm a total lip gloss junkie but wanted to try these little gems. I purchased Pink Blossom, Red Dahlia, Hibiscus, & Honeysuckle. The colors are no fuss. Basically tinted chapstick. No nasty flavors or stickiness. These aren't waxy @ all. They're very moisturizing. I'm currently using Pink Blossom. It suits me perfectly! Its a beautiful lite, very natural pink (think of a young child's natural color). A true MLBB for me. I pair it with a lite blush, mascara, n some bronzer. Natural beauty!! The packaging, very bulky, to say the least. A bit pricey for tinted balm, I think. But I'll definitely repurchase. Please Burt's Bees, DO NOT D/C!!!
This was my 1st LUSH purchase. I was looking for something a bit more natural for my sensitive skin. I prefer TM to foundation, dewy instead of matte. After reading MUA's reviews, I caved in @ ordered it. I've been using it for about a week now. I truly love it! I have it in dark yellow. Trust me it's nowhere near yellow! Its color is exactly like Revlon's Colorstay 200 Nude. It maybe a tad bit warmer but not much. I don't know why the color names and descriptions are so odd. I took one lippie off bcs of the package. A small glass jar?!? Really?!? It looks amazingly cute but its not the most sanitary, I always use clean hands, and definitely not travel friendly, the product shifts inside the jar making it a mess. As for the product, I use it as both a concealer, which is straight from the jar, and as a TM, mixed with my moisturizer. It evens out my skin tone without any cakiness and gives me a beautiful dewy finish, not oily. I found it works great as my undereye concealer and to cover a few blemishes. I do stress though, this is NOT full coverage foundation. As for staying power, I find that it lasts me all day until I take it off @ night. I don't use any setting powder or primer. I only use a little bronzer. The result is beautiful. I will definitely keep buying.
Treatments -Avon - Anew Clinical Advanced Dermabrasion System
pinkhart 2/25/2011 10:31:00 PM
So I've been using this for about 2 months now. My skin used to be blotchy, very dull looking, and just not looking great. At the time I saw this on sale for 2 for $28 USD. So I thought why not give of a try. I used it as per instructions. I like the packaging with the number dial. I had never used microdermabrasion before so I thought it felt a bit harsh, but I continued. Within no time my skin had a beautiful youthful look to it. Dullness gone and my skin tone looked alot more even. My hubby has complimented me timw and time again @ how great my skin looks. It can be a bit pricey but this for me is definitely a winner. I will continue to buy especially when its on sale.
OMG!!! I have finally found a great mascara!!! I'm so happy I gave into the hype. This mascara gives me big, long, black beautiful lashes with 2 swipes. No smudges, no flaking, no raccoon eyes, no need for primer. I'm so in luv with this product. Only flaw is have to order it online. But nothing is perfect. I will definetely keep repurchasing as long as they keep making it.
Shampoo -Alberto Vo5 - Kiwi Lime Squeeze Clarifying Shampoo

What's not to love about this shampoo and conditioner duo? They smell fantastic, they're super cheap, and they make my hair feel and smell wonderful. I have really oily hair. Like the type you have to wash everyday or its oil city. Anyway this makes my hair feel so clean. It never feels dry or course. It gives my hair volume and shine while leaving it so clean. And the smell. Wow! It smells like a spring meadow minus the flies. I love it. Will always repurchase....
Lipstick -E.L.F. - Mineral Lipstick in Natural Nymph
pinkhart 1/19/2011 2:44:00 PM
So I've been looking for THE pale nude lipstick. I ha e super pigmented lips. I mean they are like natural red!! For some time I've been using concealer & lip balm then a pale pink lip gloss on top. But I want something different. I've contemplating getting MAC's Myth but have heard its too drying. So after reading some reviews I decided to order it. I love love love it!!! It covers my pigmented lips so wonderfully and doesn't make me look like a corpse. Super creamy. Looks great with pale pink lip gloss. And I love the all black slick packaging. I'll definitely be repurchasing this one..
I've been using this fragrance fir years. I mostly use it when I go out and about. Its my go to fragrance. It can be a but overwhelming when you first spray it on. I usually buy this along with Pure Seduction when VS has the sales. Otherwise I think its a bit much 9.50 a bottle.
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - 6 Piece Eye Brush Set (5 brushes + case)
pinkhart 12/26/2010 4:07:00 PM
So I needed some brushes but was in a bit of a budget due to the joys of Christmas gift giving (notice my sarcasm). I walked into Rite Aid and made my usually bee line for the cosmetics area. After reading so many rave reviews about other Ecotools brushes, I really wanted to buy one. I came across this eye brush set. I figured 5 brushes and a travel case can't be bad for 7.99. Plus the fact the company is ecofriendly and has a no cruelty to animals policy. I bought it very confident I would love it. And I do. The brushes are so soft and fluffy. A dream for blending. There is the highlighter brush that is a bit sturdier but still soft. They don't shed or scratch. They do have a shorter handle but I don't mind. I'm going to toss my 2 other brushes (blush and powder) and replace them with some brushes from this brand. Highly reccomend them..
