Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
pinkystarfish 2/9/2008 5:41:00 PM
MUST READ!!!! IMPORTANT!! ok as another reviewer mentioned, UD is totally ripping everyone off with the packaging. If you think your primer is finished cut it open and you will find so much product left that you were almost going to throw away. http://dblacknessmac.blogspot.com/2008/01/udpp-has-been-holdin-out.html Go to this site and it will give you instructions on how to do it. I just did it right now. Thank God i didnt throw away my last tube. I had a 5 oz olay total effects jar laying around and i filled it up half way with all the product that was left over in the UD primer. I'm sure there could have been more but i was messy and I got most of it on my hands and every where else. But still wow thats a lot of product i could have thrown away. Now for the review .. i love this product besides the packaging of course. It makes all my eyeshadows pop and the color lasts all day. I use this everyday before i put my eyeshadow on. Now that i get the most of the product its deffinately worth the price. Please dont throw the tube away cut it open! you wont regret it.
so i just bought this today in Crimson. I normally wear MAC red lipstick but i dont have time to re-apply at work so i wanted something i didnt need to worry about. So i put it on wait 2 min. and then the top coat. Its kinda sheer on my lips, not as vibrant as i hoped. Then not even an hour passes and its starting to flake and crumble. My lipstick lasts longer than this crap! And at almost 10 bucks a pop its such a rip off. This was my first long wear lipstick i've tried and prob. the last. Bummer cause the color was so pretty in the tube.
I just bought this today and i'm kinda dissapointed. I have the two faced lip injection version and i see better results with that. I do like that the sally brand does not burn. I bought this in the sheer blush color. Its a really pretty sparkly pink. Very natural though. Even though it doesnt really plump my lips, its still a nice lip gloss.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expert Eyes Duo - Lasting Lilac

The colors are pretty but you MUST use a primer before you use any of the eyeshadows if you want it to last or even show up. It ok but i was hoping for something more irredescent like sea glass. not bad though.
i'm actually wearing the duo right now. I've gotten so many compliments today. I love the bright aqua color. At first i thought it might be to much for me. I have light olive skin and dark brown eyes, but it actually looks great. Everyone thought it was mac eyeshadow. Its one of the first maybelline eyeshadows i've tried. I love the irredecense to it. If I can find more shadows like these i'd buy them all!
Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild - Diamond Brilliance - Tamaras Tiara - 615

Love this gloss! i'm wearing it right now actually. I even had sometime compliment me. She asked where i got it cause the color really popped. One of my favorite shades of red and for about 2 bucks, come on now how could i resist. My lips dont feel at all sticky either which is a great plus.
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! i've been looking for a great peachy blush forever and i found it. It looks great no matter what. Use it very lightly cause it is highly pigmented. My first smashbox product and its great.
I started using this product early this year. I was looking for a facewash that removed my makeup with out breaking me out. I love this product! I use it with other products for my breakouts. Since my skin is also sensitive i needed something that wouldnt irritate it further. Sometimes i use this product with out my acne cleanser and i still dont break out. I've seen a huge improvement in my skin and although i didnt have severe acne it still bothered me. The only thing that i hate is that it takes a lot of product just to get a rich lather, so i wind up using up the bottle really fast. Which sucks cause its not that cheap. This cleanser , oxy max. strength face wash, stridex sensitive face wipes, and clean and clear advantage oil free acne moisturizer is what i use on my face. The combination of these products has helped me soo much. Btw.. i've tried almost every acne facewash and gels there are.. in case you were wondering.
Cleansers -Oxy - Oxy 10 Balance Maximum Strength Acne Wash

I was skeptical about this product but after a few months of ugly continous breakouts i decided to give it try. Its been working really well for me but i use other products in conjuction with it. I do still break out but not as bad or as big. The are now way smaller and go away fast. It does dry out your skin but i use another product with it so thats prob. the cause. My mom even saw an improvement in my skin and bought it for her hormonal breakouts. The only con is that it can blean fabric which my towels will prove. so just becareful. other than that its worth a shot.
So i really like this product and i'm on my thrid one. It works wonders for me at my job the a/c doesnt really work so it gets hot really fast and since most the day we're running around helping customers and cleanings and stuff i tend to sweat. I really felt uncomfortable when i would lift up my arms so i bought this it and works really good. If you dont put it on at night like it says then you wont get the desired results. I put it on at night right before bed.. i keep it on my nightstand so i wont forget. In the morning after i shower and dry off completely then i put on a little more just to be sure and voila! i'm pretty much dry all day! Just make sure that you do put it on at night or else its totally worthless.
Mascara -Max Factor - Lash Perfection Volume Couture [DISCONTINUED]

i think i found my HG! i have never and i mean never seen my eyelashes look so awesome! it doesnt clump and it makes them so long and beautiful. i love it! UPDATE: 5/8/07 after a few weeks of wearing this mascara it still as good as day one. I absolutely love how my lashes look and i haven't had any problems with flaking. My mom decided to try this mascara as well when she saw how my lashes looked. luv luv luv it. New Update: 7/30/07 now a few months have passed and i still love this mascara. I did find my HG! UPDATE: 1/30/08 I still love this mascara however i just bought a new tube and for the first time it kinda flakes. This might be because i started to use my eyelash curler after i already applied the mascara which might have something to do with it. IDK i still love it though. I just wish they wouldnt run out of Rich Black so fast.
I bought this a few weeks ago because i needed something to exfoliate my skin with out irritating it. The ulta gentle scrub wasnt available so i bought this. At first i thought this product was making me break out. I used the clean and clear oxygenating wash crap first and then the scrub. So i decided to stop using the clean and clear and i went back to my neutrogena face wash. I have to use a face wash first to remove the make up before i scrub. After switching my face felt and looked much better. I also started to use vitamin e oil in conjuction and i've notice my acne scars are starting to fade. Thank God! It does make my face a little dry, but with a good moisterizer its ok. After i'm done with this tube i'm going to search for the ultra gentle formula.
Cleansers -Equate - 3-1 Facial Cleansing Towelettes
pinkystarfish 1/12/2007 2:49:00 AM
Well mine aren't the 3-1 they're just the facial cleansing towelettes. They work great at taking off make up but they're too harsh for my face. The cloth is too harsh for my delicate eye area and it stings my eyes too. Maybe if they come out with a sensitive skin cloth then i'd try those. Until then i'll pass on these.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Oxygenating Fizzing Cleanser
pinkystarfish 1/11/2007 1:39:00 AM
This product did nothing for me. It doesn't really fizz.. it just lathers. It made my face feel weird and not clean. It sucks at removing eye make-up too so don't even try it. The only thing i love about this product is the smell. UPDATE: I decided to give this product another try since i realized your suppose to use it with dry face and hands. This product sucks even worse then i thought. It didn't really fizz or even lather on my dry face. It felt so slimey and gross. After i washed my face it left it feeling tight and dry. I wish i would have saved my money instead of buying this crap. Don't buy it!
