love love love these. i can't shower and not use this. if its difficult to find, walmart has one thats similar and its the size of a face towel and is actually cheaper for $2.00. sometimes publix has them too buy another brand but its pretty much the same thing. i always stock up on these when i can find them
I bought this nail polish at Ulta today on sale for $3.99 and THANK GOD it was on sale! ugh, I find it thin and transparent. I just tried two coats and it looks like it's going to have to be three to four in order to look decent in my opinion. I can still see the tips of my nails which I don't like. The brush isn't all that bad, it isn't too wide o.p.i. or too thin like essie.
OMG wow. wow. wow. picked up one of these today from Ulta and WOW! the texture is so awesome why didn't i know about these before?? The price is exceptional and they were even buy one get one 1/2 off. I might go but some more 0.0 lol love these
Eyeliner -Bourjois - Khol & Contour Eyeliner Pencil

Picked up two of these yesterday in Prune Moderne (75-dark purple) and Gris Ingenieux (73-grey) on CLEARANCE at Ulta. Apparently Bourjois was discontinued and they had a couple of these eyeliners and eyeshadows up for grabs. I bought these for $2.99 each. I want expecting much from it but they grey is really pretty, very sutle but still visible. Perfect for daytime if you don't really want to wear black eyeliner or just want to switch it up a bit.
Treatments (Eye) -Boots - Botanics Moisturizing Eye Cream

I love this stuff. My concealer goes on so well with it and it isn't overwhelming. It isn't greasy and isn't perfumed like other products I've tried before.
Toners -Thayers - Rose Petal Alcohol Free Witch Hazel
ryoung001 2/12/2011 3:59:00 PM
Bought this yesterday as I'm trying to ween off of medications applied to my face. Pretty much everything I was using contained salicylic acid, no good. The scent is an acquired one I think, I don't mind it TOO much but i can see that some people would have a problem with it. The Lady at Whole Foods said to keep it the in the fridge for a cooling effect an that there's also a lavender one that's pretty good too. So far I my face looks more supple and not gray? as it did before. Will update if anything goes awry.
Mascara -Rimmel - Volume Flash The Max in Extreme Black 003
ryoung001 2/12/2011 3:35:00 PM
I bought this because allure said it was a good drugstore find and who isn't looking for a good deal. Went to the nearest drugstore and picked up one, at the time they had a sale on rimmel eye products buy one get on free so I got one for my cousin. When I first used it i was in a rush out the door but boy was I dissapointed. I ended up just putting it in my makeup bag and forgetting about it until the other day. This time around however, I used it after using an eyelash curler and wow, much much much better results than before. Shout out to Shu Uemura eyelash curler!
Lip Gloss -Shu Uemura - Sweet Lipgloss in Raspberry
ryoung001 2/12/2011 3:21:00 PM
I found this gloss to be extremely sticky but it does look rather nice on. I wouldn't repurchase only because its too sticky and I prefer doe foot or the paint brush-like applicators.
Picked this up for my mom and she never used it. It looked different in CVS lighting i guess -.- Tried using it for sculpting and yea its just kind does nothing like the stupid mirror on the bottom. So disappointed.
Concealers -Smashbox - Photo Op Under Eye Brightener
ryoung001 2/12/2011 3:03:00 PM
okay so this isn't really an "under eye brightener" by any means because you still have/need to put concealer on but I like it as a highlighter. Only using it to finish it up but I wouldn't repurchase.
I usually hate loose powders but this bronzer is amazing. It's so cheap, isn't orange, and it has the perfect amount of shimmer for a "summer glow". LOVE IT!
This is a good bronzer and sculpting tool. Isn't shimmery like the others and is nice and matte. Price is awesome i think. I'm not too keen on the packaging but whatever, it does what it's supposed to. I would buy again.
I have wanted one of these for a while now but found it hard to spend $32 on a bronzer. But......I went to Ulta the other day had they had a trial size for purchase and i was ONLY $6!!!!!!!!!! It doesn't have the cute little brush on the bottom like the full size but hey it was SIX DOLLARS!!!!! I've used it only twice so far but i think it's great. Will update if my opinion changes.
Moisturizers -Boots - Botanics Complexion Refining Light Night Cream
ryoung001 2/8/2011 3:57:00 AM
bought this and it was life changing. id wake up with glowing skin, blemish free, and well rested. I finished one pot and when i went to buy another one at the target i had previously purchased it from they didn't sell it anymore, in fact the didn't even have the full botanics section like they had before....so i switched to aveeno clear complexion in replace of. a couple of months later i target brought it back at another location so i bought it but then my face didn't want to cooperate :( i cant express how much i LOVED this product the first time around i would repurchase if i my face weren't so sensitive. i wish my skin took to it again.
Lip Gloss -Smashbox - Lip Enhancing Gloss in Afterglow
ryoung001 2/8/2011 3:46:00 AM
I've bought this lipgloss several times. although it is a bit pricey i prefer it because it isn't too sticky or goopy like some other glosses I've bought that didn't turn out so well.
