I have two of these, the clear and the gold. The gold glitter is very gritty and patchy. I love the idea of having these to apply over lipsticks but, I rarely use them. The quality is not bad, but not great either. Covergirl makes much better lipgloss, stay clear of these. Also the packaging seems awkward to me, like to keeps in a purse.
I find that this just looks like shimmer on me. This is nice, I suppose, but its a bit expensive for shimmer. I was expecting something like the orgasm blush and it is very different, just glittery. I rarely use it. Its nice on occasion but not worth it for me. The tube packaging is nice, I don't see many highlighters/shimmers like that.
Primer/ Corrector -Make Up For Ever - HD Microperfecting Primer

I have this in #6, the "yellow" which I say is really more of a light tan. This is actually the first primer I have used. I would say it makes my pores a bit smaller and makes my makeup last longer but that is about it. For $30+ I expect more from a primer. I think I could find something better for less. The pump is nice, but I think it will end up with too much product left. No enough bang for my buck!
I have two, slaphappy and red riot. I really like these glosses. The color payoff is really nice and the scent is great. They are a bit sheer though. They feel really fresh and light, not sticky at all. Though I don't think they freshen my breath like they claim. They are just fun, go to glosses. I like sponge tip applicator.
I have this in the shade Joy. I absolutely love the color. It is a bright peachy coral. This moisturizes very wells and my lips feel great even after it is gone. That being said, I would say this has no staining power what so ever. I bought this so I wouldn't have to reapply after eating and drinking. I find I have to reapply after just talking or blotting on a napkin. It feels no color on my lips at all. I don't know it is just this shade or the whole line. I have found better staying power in regular wear drugstore brands. Love the color, hate the wear. Oh and the pencil packaging is a unique idea that I think is executed nicely. I feel like I am at least getting all the product I paid for.
I don't dislike this mascara, but I don't love it either. It lengthens my eyelashes, but it doesn't do anything else. It doesn't get really clumpy which has been a problem for me with other mascaras. It seems to wear all day. It isn't too dark, but I have black eyelashes, so this could be a plus or minus depending on your hair color. I might buy this again if I don't find something better. The bottom line is that it doesn't suck, which isn't really a good thing. I haven't found any mascaras I love yet.
I bought this on the advice of many and really am disappointed. I guess it does it's job and it is hard to find a good white pencil, but I really don't use it often enough. I also find that it irritates my eyes, I wear contacts I don't know if the two are related. The cap is already cracked which doesn't matter really, but I think it shows how cheap it is. The good this is it last forever for me.
Lip Treatments -Clinique - Superbalm Raspberry Tint

I absolutely love this gloss! It is my "HG" gloss. It is not sticky, goopy, or runny at all. The color looks amazing on me, a very sheer light pink, perfect for everyday. It last a very long time as well, but even after it has worn off, your lips feel great. It has the typical tube applicator, which is excepted, but I feel like I am losing some product this way. The price is a little steep, luckily a little goes a long way and there are always free samples!
Overall I like this product. The color is great and it moisturizes nicely. It is a subtle berry tone with a hint of shimmer and I like that. Perfect for daytime or night. The scent is a little like lipsmackers and I don't care for it, but it doesn't stop me from using it. I've gotten compliments from my boyfriend on the taste, haha. The packaging leaves a little to be desired as it feels quite cheap. It is also a little large and that makes application awkward at the corners and tips my lips. I would say this is closer to a lipstick or heavily tinted lip balm than a lip gloss.
This is the first concealer I have tired and I will not be purchasing again. I like it under my eyes but for covering up blemishes, redness, lines, etc it doesn't work at all. The coverage is very thin and I don't like that. I find that I end up applying multiple coats, which is not something I want to do with a concealer. The packaging is unique. I like the idea of a twist up and brush end, but I think that it could breed bacteria and leave product in the tube. All in all I will be looking for another concealer when I run out.
Deodorants -Dove - Dove deodorant/antipersperant original scent
somethingnovel 5/1/2010 7:19:00 AM
I have used this and other Dove deodorants. I love them! They leave my underarms smooth and dry all day. I even put it on right after shaving and get no irritation. As expected, during an intense workout, I do sweat there. However, I still smell clean.My only gripe is you still get white marks on clothes if you dont wait a couple of mintues after applying before you put on a shirt. I've used plenty of other brands and I've stayed with Dove ever since the first try.
