The product alone I will give it 4 lippies, but adding up its low price ( I got mine for 4 dollars), I will rate it 5. It has enough shades to pick up and mine is soft black. I use this eyebrow pencil to do a eyebrow base. and then I double with wet n wild eyebrow shadow to create a more natural looking. I just recently got this eyebrow pencil and I have very oil skin, especially in the summer. I have oils out very frequently all over my face, also including my eyebrows. I found that by using this eyebrow pencil as a base, my eyebrow stays longer, wont that easily smear off. like it!
Masks -Unlisted Brand - Aztec - Indian Healing Clay

I bought this product around 1 year ago and it is still half jar left! My receipt is mix 1 and half table spoons of clay with two teaspoons of ACV and some water. Adding ACV is very important! it helps mix up the paste more effectively and also it can reduce your pores. After put the mixed thing on my face about 10 mins and rinse then out, my face become sooo clear. like all the redness gone, and my pore is nearly invisible. It somewhat helps remove my blackheads. Love it!
I didn't read reviews here when I bought this brush. But, it amazed me. It blends out everything! If you are a bronzer person, it is just perfect for putting bronzer all over your face since it is a big brush. Even though using it to contour your face it is precise enough. The best thing of it is that, as I said, it blends out everything. If you did a bad bronze on your face, just using this brush to blend it out, then it still looks perfect. Just go buy it.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I should should buy this product earlier! I was using lumene's eye shadow base before and that one works well, but compares with the urban decay one, nooo urban decay one is much much better. nothing to say, just go buy it, i have super oily eyelids, this eyeshadow base can make my eyeshadows stay on my eyelids for the whole day! soo great. even though its kind of pricy but still worth it.
Cleansers -Aveeno - Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Cleanser
raynie 4/20/2011 2:00:00 AM
This is right now my favorite makeup remover! so gentle but removes your makeup thoroughly, never feel tight on your face after using it. it also contains socy extracts so really good to your skin. the packaging is good to. with a pump so hygeine. love love it. only hard to find it, i got mine at ulta.
It's the best drugstore powder foundation I've ever used. I bought it in laurel nude. It gives medium coverage. I have very oily skin and this is the only one that can stays on my face more than 5 hrs. It says can be used either dry or wet but I only tried dry. The most important thing I evaluate a face product is good or not is that if it makes your face look dull after using it. This powder foundation, it neither clogs my pores or makes my face dull. I will keep repurchasing it and I think I can't find a drugstore affordable powder foundation better than it.

OMG, finally I found my HG lip balm!!! I have super dry lips and every winter it chips horribly. I have been searching for a good lip balm for years. I bought many different lip balms from different brands. This one, I missed it several times because I read reviews here and the comments are very contravortial so I hestitated. I sooo regreted I didnt buy it earlier. If so, I wont waste money on other products. This lip balm makes my lips moisturizing for hours since my lips are super dry. after using this lip balm I have no more issue of chipped lips. And the scent is so yummy. I love love love it. If I am only able to recommend one lip product, def will be this one.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
raynie 4/8/2011 9:43:00 PM
I have been using moisturizing gel for 4 years so I think its time to get a more pricier one it might work better. This moisture, I will say, is even less moisturzing than the yellow gel I used. and the most horrible thing is that it enlarges your pores!! yes, I have used two days and I found that It enlarged my pores significantly. I will def not repurchase this product anymore.
Liquid -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup SPF 20 (2009 formulation)
raynie 8/21/2010 12:48:00 AM
I have no idea why so many people raved this foundation. This foundation emphasized "healthy skin", however, when you first applied this foundation on your face it did give you that dewy looks, but after like 2 hrs, it became kind of caky, not that smoothy and silky finishing anymore. The reason why I say this foundation does not give you "healthy skin" is IT CLOGS YOUR SKIN!!! yes it does ! when wearing it after 6 hrs i removed my makeup and i have more heavily blackheads. so bad!
Mascara -Rimmel - Volume Flash The Max in Extreme Black 003
raynie 5/23/2010 11:44:00 PM
I pretty much like this product. It's now my new favorite. It doesn't say it's waterpoof so i thought it was not. However, I put it on my lashes on a raining day, it doesn't smear off at all. It is so waterproof and smudgeproof. For volumizing part, it's not a volumizing mascara as it indicates on the package, but It is more like a natural lenghtening mascara. it gives your lash lenghtens but not that dramatic. its also good for putting on your lower lashes. good lengths but no smudge. It's also easy to be removed off. I will keep using this mascara until I reach the end of the tube.
Eyeliner -Jordana - Easyliner for Eyes (Retractable Pencil)
raynie 5/23/2010 11:19:00 PM
its not tht good. a cheap eyeliner, that's it. neither waterproof nor smudgeproof. doesnt stay on waterline. only 20 mins it starts to get smudged. $1.99, that's what it is
Moisturizers -Eucerin - Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sensitive Skin Creme
raynie 5/14/2010 11:50:00 PM
It's a decent creme consistency facial product. For only $10 drugstore product, I dont expect too much from it even though it says that it contains Q10. Since I am combonation skin it broke me out immediately after I applied it on my face. So I only use it as a neck cream. So far I am almost use out of it and I will say it's a pretty good moisturizing product. I havent seen any obvious improvements on my neck wrinkles yet, but my wrinkles didnt get worse, so that means it at least works somehow. Before I found a better or cheaper alternative, I will keep purchasing this product.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Length Water Resistant
raynie 5/14/2010 11:41:00 PM
If I give lash volume 5 lippies, then I will only give this product 1 lippie, or even worse. It actually doesn't do anything. No length, no volume, and no curl holding. nothing! even rare mascara's on when you apply it. soooo bad!
It's such an amazing product! just as other reviewers said, it cleans the hair styling products residues left over on your hair. it might be a little pricy but you dont need a lot of this everytime when you use it. it will leave your hair so clean and fresh, and after that i use my normal shampoo and conditioner then i found that my hair will be conditioned more easily. my hair turned out so healthy and smooth. for those who putting hair styling products everyday i recommend using this shampoo once every week. but if you rarely styled your hair like me, you dont want to use this shampoo more that twice per three weeks. it's a anti-residue shampoo, overusing will harm your hair which against your original purpose.
Eyeliner -Prestige - Total Intensity Eyeliner Deepest Black
raynie 5/13/2010 1:00:00 AM
I have no idea why people fav this product so high. well, the consistency is very smooth and creamy and it's very smudgeproof. but for who have very watery eyes like me won't be able to use this eyeliner at all. It's not waterproof i guess since I have very watery eyes and only after two hours my eyeliner got smeared off. very very bad and im kind of disappointed at it. but for those who dont have this problem, you might give it a try.
