Deodorants -Kiss My Face - Active Enzyme Deodorant

Well at first I really liked this product. Kept me shower fresh all day. Then after about a week or two, I developed a red, stingy rash. Ouuuccch! It hurts. Something in here is not for me. I will not repurchase. :(
Eh, what can I say. I don't hate it, but it was by no means a wonderful exfoliator. It made my skin rather dry, and the fragrance was a bit irritating for my sensitive skin. I won't be repurchasing.
I selected the Bunell Blush color. It is a very pretty slightly metallic light pink color. I love that it is cruelty free, and you can't go wrong for under 4 bucks. Some slight chipping at the end of day 2, although nailpolish always chips for me so I'm not bummed or anything. Very nice product.

This shattered very quickly. The color itself was nice to look at, but on my eyes, it didn't show up and was very chalky. Maybe it would look nice on warmer or darker complexions. It was pointless on mine.
I see this as a nice moisturizing mask, but by no means exfoliating. It left my skin soft, but I assume it would since the second ingredient is oil. I kept my mask moist throughout the 40 minutes I had it on my face, but I still didn't see or feel any results. All in all, this is still a nice mask if you want to refresh, relax, and moisturize. I really prefer MyChelle Fruit Fiesta Enzyme treatment though for a glowing complexion.
Beautiful color! Very pretty peachy pink on my lips with a sheen to it. You know how people recommend to put a dab of shiny gloss in the middle of your lip color on your bottom lip to "emphasize" you lips and make them appear full? I swear that's what this color does, without the extra step. Somehow the color only picks up the high voltage shine on the center of my bottom lip anyway, so it's a gorgeous effect! Now, having said all of this.... I am one of the unfortunate ones who can't stand the smell! And the taste!! *gasp* No, I don't eat the gloss out of the tube, but if a tiny bit gets into my mouth, eeeew. It smells like desitin diaper rash ointment and johnson & johnson baby powder. I keep thinking, "who let a baby in here? Where's the baby?" but then realize... there's no lil' baby.. it's my lips! diaper lips! clean diaper lips, but diaper lips nonetheless. I just can't deal, people.
I just can't get into this eyeshadow trio. The light colors barely show up, and all of the colors leave glitter all over my face. It would be one thing if the glitter was just on my eyes, but all over my face is annoying. I ended up throwing this stuff out. (before I learned about swapping)
I really was surprised how much I liked this. I purchased the sheer peach color. I usually can't stand smelly lipgloss, but the subtle vanilla icecream scent is soft enough for me to handle. It leaves the slightest tint on my lips, and is very moisturizing. Very nice!
This is a pretty color, but I was a bit disappointed because it looked more purply on my lips than it did in the tube. I will not be repurchasing, because it feels like their is sand in it. Very grainy.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - sensitive skin sunblock spf 30

Let me first say that if you can't stand thick sunblock formulas, then RUN AWAY!!! doo be doo be doo... still here? Well then hello! Read on... :) So anyway, I really enjoy this sunblock. It does a fab-o job of keeping freckles away and doesn't sting my skin or smell crazy. I actually love that it makes my skin "glow" with it on. Keep in mind though, I'm reaaally pale to begin with, so if you aren't naturally pasty white, then there is a high chance that it might make you look like a ghost. What can you expect though, when you are rubbing 9% titanium dioxide all over yourself. It does indeed feel heavy at first, but I personally find that after a few minutes, it sinks in, and it doesn't feel any heavier than a regular moisturizer. (even though this isn't supposed to be a moisturizer) So... in conclusion... If you aren't having oily face problems and are looking for a nice sunblock to keep your pale skin freckle and tan free, then this may do the trick. :)
I bought this beyond powder eyeshadow in lilac. It is a very pretty light purple shade, with just a *tiny* hint of grey. I was looking for a pretty pastel type shade without the barbie doll look. This stuff did the trick. It didn't crease, and lasted a decent amount of time. It can look a bit chalky I suppose, but I never really tried many eyeshadow brands, so coming from a gal who isn't used to much, this is an okay product. I will mention though that the color selection isn't that great. EDIT: OKay, so I took off a lippie. I'm just bored with this stuff now. It really is rather chalky. *yawn*
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - Moistureshine Lipgloss in Groove [DISCONTINUED]

I love the smooth, light, and slippery texture to this lipgloss. I also am quite pleased with the pink color. As it has been mentioned before, it appears to be a gaudy poodle pink shade in the tube, but goes onto my lips a sheer, semi-transparent light pink. If I put it on sheer enough, it actually is so similar to my natural lip color that it looks like a clear shine. The only reason why I will not be repurchasing this gloss is that the smell is just awful. Yuck.
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - Moistureshine Lipgloss in Chic

This lipgloss is okay, but I will not be repurchasing. It has a wonderful texture-not to sticky- and feels surprisingly light on my lips. The color looks pretty neutral in the tube, but I find that it appears much more orangey and warm-toned on my lips. It also has an awful scent to it.

This stuff started making my lips itch, then it turned into a numbing sensation. I noticed it had BHT in it, so maybe that ingredient was the culprit. In any case, I will not buy any more of these!!!
Polishes -Maybelline - Wet Shine Diamonds nail color
subbacultcha 5/24/2003 6:26:00 PM
It has been a gloomy day here and I was really craving a fun, summery, and festive nail polish shade for my tootsies. I found the prettiest shade! It's the wet shine diamonds line in "peach glimmer". It is a deep pink, fruit punch base color with loads and loads of golden, apricot like shimmer. I was worried the shimmer would make it rough, but it's actually rather smooth. I'm always rough on my nails so am used to polish chipping quickly, but since it's for my toes, I think it should last for several days. A very cute color for sandals!!
