Skincare - Body -Cottage Shoppe - body butter in Sunshine blend

I like CS butters because they're very moisturizing but not greasy and they're absorbed quickly. For the sunshine bb, the scent was too light (if ever there was any) I was hoping to use this with Fresh Hesperides but couldn't smell anything. I gave this to my pregnant cousin. Update: my cousin loves it, she asked me to get her one on my next order. She said it smells good. Hmmm... maybe there's a problem with my nose :)
Skincare - Body -Cottage Shoppe - Grapefruit (white) Body Butter

Love the grapefruit smell. Very tart. The butter is very moisturizing but is absorbed easily. This smells like CSP Pamplemousse :)
I am not a lipstick person but i have to wear one because my lips are so pale but I do like gloss. And no matter how long-wearing a gloss can be, it still fades faster. I've tried other stains (Benetint, Sephora) but they work better as blush because they sort of sit on top of my lips unlike UD's lip ink - it is absorbed easily and beautifully. Naked makes me look like i have pigmented lips. The color is like Clinique black honey/black lily. I just topped it off with a gloss! It has a decent staying power. I also find the pen-like applicator easier to use than a bottled stain with lipbrush applicator.
During the time I bought this, the case was mostly available in white. The SA gave me the black one that was reserved for a famous actress here :) The blush brush is so soft, the e/l brush is perfect for powder and cream liners, the 244SE is good for crease shadow application, the 242SE is a little stiff for my liking, i find the 213SE to be small for me & i don't use the lip brush. Overall, these are good brushes. The case has 2 zippered compartments, the first one has slots for your brushes. You can put your other cosmetics on the 2nd compartment - great for travelling.
Brows -Maybelline - Expert Eyes Twin Brow & Eye Pencils

I have black brows and when i bleach my brows, this is the only one i use. You can't beat the price and this actually works without looking fake. It's creamy so it doesn't hurt my skin. I use a brow brush to blend this.
I got this is a GWP with long pretty lashes mascara on the other side of the wand. I use this 2 together and it works perfectly on me. It doesn't smudge and totally defines my lashes without being over.
I got this is a GWP with lash doubling mascara on the other side of the wand. I use this 2 together and it works perfectly on me. It doesn't smudge and totally defines my lashes without being over.
It makes my lashes fuller and defined. I usually swipe this first on a tissue paper to remove extra mascara that can sometimes clump my lashes.
This is an okay mascara. Didn't curl nor defined my eyelashes but good to use everyday if you want a non-obvious-mascara thing. But it smells good.
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - MoistureShine Gloss in Flirt

I love this line. Flirt is a dark rose/raspberry color which i find bright for me. So I blot it to make it sheerer. It's light(consistency not the color)on lips, not like those sticky ones. I love the smell too. I have to admit it doesn't last that long compared to others. But this is still my favorite line of gloss.
Almay I-liner stung/burned my eyes - this did the same thing to me!
This hurts! Stung/burned by eyes!
Fragrances -Cottage Shoppe - Body Mist with Glycerin

I got the 7-Up as an extra after CS was late in processing my order. You have to shake this befor using because there's an oil separation. It didn't burn me but it stung me considering i just sprayed this on my wrist and that i never get this reaction with any product (i'm never sensitive even with skincare and cosmetics). This smells like a freshener and lasted 10 minutes on me. Maybe I'll use this as a room spray because I'm afraid to give this to somebody else.
I'm looking for a warm-colored blush and asked my mom to get me this after reading the reviews here. So i never saw the actual color until i received it. Its peachy-tan which i thought would look dark on me (NC30). I'm lucky that it looks great on me. This is a nice natural color, good for everyday use. It has a good staying power too!
Lipstick -Bobbi Brown - Lip Color - Sandwash Pink #22

A nice pale pink lipstick with creamy-matte, great for everyday use. However I agree that it smells & tastes stale.
