The clothing for juicy couture is overpriced although the sweatpants/track suit seem to hold up nicely. I care about Juicy Couture more for the jewelry. I have a strawberry necklace and a paved heart ring and I love them to death. I plan to get the charm starter necklace and collect a couple/few charms. The quality of the jewelry is fantastic and I get compliments every time I wear the jewelry!

i have the foundation in buff beige. i use it every day with no primer and no moisturizer because my skin (mainly t zone, not really my cheek area) is oily ! this works almost as a blotting powder for me and i only have to reapply once around lunch time. people say this makes them break out but i don't see break out on my cheeks which is where i could probably judge if it was the foundation. as far as my t-zone, none really around my chin, maybe two but that's normal so i don't believe that is from the foundation. as for my forehead, my forehead always has bumps, not quite acne, but bumps. that's average though also so not a fault of the foundation. i did notice that i have gotten a few more whiteheads so that may be from the foundation. it honestly gives me good coverage and its pretty pigmented for a drugstore brand foundation. i'd love to try the liquid kind but over all this is pretty good ! :D
i really love this color. it is quite sheer but if you want to, you can build it up to create the color you see in the pan. it is, as a MUAer below me said, it's a very "barbie" pink with gold glitters. such a gorgeous color! it is also cool toned so it works very well with purples in my opinion. i can't wait to get stars n rockets and try it with that ! :)
i was debating on getting this quad and i opted not to. the colors ARE gorgeous, i agree, but they aren't very unique. the one brown (sorry i can't remember the name) looks like one in spiced chocolate quad, which i got. the highlight color isn't anything special and the other brown i just didn't like. i also found that the color "sharp" was the one i really wanted but when i looked at it in my mac store it is an EXACT dupe of mac's overgrown. if you have overgrown, like i do, you basically have sharp too.
i wish i as into MAC when this came out! I love everything about it and wish i could have bought at least the eyeshadows. I wish MAC would repromote the collection. Thankfully they are repromoting the e/s Playful in their Manish Aurora Collection, it will be in the palette so i look forward to that. In the meantime, I'm gonna try to swap for hat I missed out on!!
I love the colors that the MAC shadesticks come in. That's why I swapped for 2 of the minis: taupographic and royal hue. I'm swapping both again because I just don't use them. I see why everyone dislikes the packaging. The rounded tip makes it hard to get the inner corner and into the crease. They pull and tug also. The stick of color often slid out of the tube, or slid into the tube making me frustrated. Finally, I gave up. Later I was looking through my makeup and saw them. I was determined to find a way to make them work. Finally, I realized I could use a MAC 252 to swipe the color off of the top. It defeats the packaging (hence why I put it as a three) but the color it great, as is the base!
no clumps, no bunching, no flaking! overall it's like its name, GREAT LASH! Everyone must remember this IS a drugstore brand of mascara and for that it is great. I'm not expect dior qualties but it is a cheaper (by that i mean $$ cheaper) version. i find mascara to be mascara and if you are looking for a basic mascara might as well buy 20 of these rather than one dior.
i recieved a sample of this in a swap and i LOVED it. I wish I had a full bottle. it is spicy which i like very much and not so pumpkin-y. exactly they way i like my pumpkin pie to smell! shower gel: lathers wonderfully, the scent is still lingering on my hands (took the bath and hour ago), just hands though. cleaned well and like i said earlier, lathered well too. shampoo: as opposed to others, it didn't make my hair feel like straw. i used a conditioner afterward and i smell the spices through it still. before i used the conditioner, it didn't feel like straw, even then. bubble bath: as far as a bubble bath, the scent went a long way until about 5 minutes before i was done. as sudsy, it made a fair amount of bubbles but they all went away within 5-10 minutes. I did just use a little though since it was a sample so that could have effected it. i would definatly repurchase (well, buy a bigger size) if i had the money :]
i absolutly LOVE this glaze. the scent is amazing and this one seems to go on less sticker. :] i would repurchase if it wasnt limited edition!!
This does give an AMAZING plump effect but it tingles for about two minutes. My lips felt numb and I felt like I was kissing a cactus! I'll use this but its no favorite that I'll be buying it again.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - cool effect shadow in ice princess
tennismnky93 2/6/2008 3:23:00 PM
LOVE THIS!! i have what ten or eleven of these now (just got 9 in the mail). This shade is a light pink. You can use this without a primer and it still stays!! It's creamy and at first hard to apply but then once you figure it out you're good :] i absolutly LOVE these! i wish they had them in brighter colors!!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Cool Effect Shadow in Cool as a Cucumber
tennismnky93 2/2/2008 5:13:00 PM
LOVE THIS!! this is a slightly shimmery (frosty) light green- like seaform or, well, the inside of a cucumber!! It goes on, for me, with a slight cooling effect. I used this after applying a base and it stayed on all through school (7 hrs). It is hard to sharpen, not from size, but because if you sharpen it too much it will crack and fall off. Lots of people are saying it doesnt fit in their sharpeners GUYS GET A MARY KAY SHARPENER!! yeah they don't have your fav makeup but they have one sharpener with two holes in it one for a regular pencil and the other fits this. Overall I would totally buy this again. I ordered nine others so look for reviews on them!!
i have this in "cool as a cucumber" and i LOVE it!! it is a light green the color of, well, the inside of a cucumber!! ha! as a liner it is so smooth and opens my eyes. To use it as an e/s it took me a while to figure out to use it. I rub it in my hands to make it smoother and easier to apply even though it's creamy to begin with!! I love these so much that i ordered nine more in the colors: Cool Blues, Plum Potion, Bewitching White, Sugar Plum Ice, Gives Me The Chills, Chill The Champagne, Blizzard Brown, Pretty Cool and Black Out!! I LOVE these and, well, i am repurchasing!! hehe!
Lip Gloss -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Lip Gloss in Bianca
tennismnky93 1/29/2008 5:28:00 PM
this gloss is a GORGEOUS peachy color. the plumping is small but better than other! it doesnt sting but has a slight minty sort of feeling to it when you put it on. wonderful gloss!
I absolutly love this brush cleaner! You just use one capful of the cleaner and three of water and it lasts all your brushes. Sometimes I use 1/2 capful of the cleaner and 1 and 1/2 of water if i'm only cleaning 2-3 brushes and it works exactly the same. My brushes end up soft and VERY clean. You get a big bottle full that will last you a while. They dry in about 7 hours and even if you clean 10 brushes the mixture will last you! Also, the brush doesnt absorb any of the liquid so don't worry about that. Simply said it's EASY and GOOD. Will definatly repurchase!!
