Cleansers -Urban Decay - Clean and Sober Oil Free Makeup Remover
r0ck3tsh1p 12/29/2007 8:10:00 PM
I bought this mostly because I had never used a makeup remover of this type. I always use some sort of acne facial wash and eye makeup remover. This product does the job that it is supposed tro do, remove makeup. It removes eye makeup decently, better than some other products out there, but probably not the best either. It has a pleasent smell, sort of hard to describe though. It is a liquid formula, and the bottle has a pump top. The bottle is pretty cute, but the cap on mine cracked. I have acne-prone combo skin, and have been breaking out pretty badly lately, but I don't suspect it is from using this as this is a pretty gentle formula. It doesn't sting my eyes at all. I would repurchase, but this isn't holy grail material either.
Treatments -Paul Mitchell - Tea Tree Hair and Scalp Treatment

I love this treatment! It smells great ( kind of a minty/ tree tea oil scent). My hair feels amazingly soft after I use it. I dye my hair so it does tend to get dry at the ends if I don't condition everyday but this really made my hair feel great. I was hoping that it would give a tingly feeling on the scalp when using it but it doesn't, but thats ok. I'd repurchase!
I don't know what the people below are talking about when they say the pigmententation is lacking in this. I think it's great. I bought this yesterday and used it today and I am in love! I have 3 other UD liquid liners already and this one is my favorite already. The color is a really pretty dark purple. Looks fabulous on my blue eyes. It lasted all day for me (I used UDPP under it). The brush is awesome, it has long thin hairs that make application very easy. I would definitely repurchase!

this tool is disgustingly satisfying to use. and i love it. it works perfectly. what more can i say?
I love this product. The color is a dark irredescent green with a bit of teal. The brush is easy to use, it is one of those brushes with long hairs, not a sponge applicator like a lot of other liquid liners have. I use this with UDPP, so I don't have any problems with it smudging or wearing off. I have blue eyes, light brown hair, NC15 skin, and Thames makes my eyes look really pretty! I like to wear this with a light lilac e/s like Lovely Lily pigment.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - 188 Small Duo Fibre Face brush

this brush is great if you are a dummy when it comes to blush like i am. it is very soft and easy to use. the small size of the brush gives great control so you just get the apples of the cheeks and not a big splotch on the face, like i normally get with other blush brushes. i love it and will repurchase when this one needs to be replaced. but i don't really like the cost!
Eye Shadow -NYX - Ultimate Pearl Eyeshadow - Gold Pearl

This is a very beautiful eyeshadow! It is more copper/bronze than gold to me. It is very metallic (no glitter), very pigmented, has a great smooth texture, and makes blue eyes really POP. The packaging is so adorable! It is black with a clear top, but there is like a lacy pattern on the packaging. The e/s lasted all day for me (i was using UDPP). Love it! I am NC15/ brunette/ blue eyes.
I love this n/p, it flashes green/purple. It's a nice dark gothy color! Would definately repurchase.
I love this so much, it's my HG foundation now. I have been a long time user of Select Foundation with 15 spf, but one of the MAC MA's used Studio Fix on me. I was totally stunned at how great it looks. I have been using Differein gel (so Studio Fix hasn't given me breakouts since I'm using Differein),and my cheeks have gotten kinda dry from it, and I have an oily T-zone. I am just amazed because this stuff really helps to control oil for me. It doesn't wear off as quickly as liquid foundation has for me. It's better than MMU IMO also, because all the MMU's i have tried did not control oil for me at all. I use NC15 (I am NC20 in Select Foundation).
I love the scent but it lasts about 3 hours even if you use a lot so what is the point??? especially if it is $40.
Waternymph is a truly beautiful eyeshadow. It's a blue green Frost e/s with a opalescent sheen. It is very pigmented too. It doesn't have any glitter in it. I love this e/s, it is probably one of the most beautiful eyeshadows i have seen from MAC in a while. I think in terms of popularity it will be the new Parrot. I think this is the first e/s where I may buy backups... The packaging is a really pretty color too! Truly unique! I am NC20 with blue eyes and brown hair.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Lust

I completely agree w/ the review below. I have Lucky, Baked, and Honey as well as Lust, and i love those. but Lust just sucks! it doesn't go on smoothly, it is kind of clumpy, and the pigmentation is laking. it so hard to draw a smooth straight line w/ this particular color.
Skincare - Body -Trader Joe's - moisturizing cream

I have been using "A Summer Night's Cream" from Trader Joe's for my eczema it has been the only think that has helped. Seriously I have hardly scratched my eczema in like two weeks. It's so awesome! Cheap, all natural, smells great, what more could you want?
This is the perfect hot pink l/l! I have so many hot pink lipsticks but no lipliners and this goes great with them. I found this while i was out at Rite-Aid, and it's so perfect with Heatherette. Yay!
Eye Shadow -Pure Luxe Cosmetics - Kaleidoscope Eyeshadow in Visions

Oh my goodness. I love this color! It is so beautiful, it makes my blue eyes really POP! This color reminds me of MAC Motif (kind of a gold/ yellow/ orange/ pink/ bronze color) but better! I have only tried it dry so far but I'm sure it would look awesome wet as a liner with a pink e/s on the lid or something. I use it over UDPP so I never have had problems w/ staying power. BTW I am NC20 as well w/ brown hair and blue eyes.
