Lip Gloss -Flirt - Squeeze Me Super Shiny Lipgloss
trolsgirl 2/28/2009 2:58:00 PM
I went to Kohls since a friend works in the beauty department and she offered to apply the Flirt! line of makeup products on me. I was impressed by the Squeeze Me lipgloss and loved the scent (peaches I think) so I bought it on the spot. I will definitely go back & get more colors and will try to catch it on sale and stock up and would give it as a gift too.
I ordered this out of the catalog as it was $3.99 and the brush looked similar to the ones made by Covergrl & Maybelline on their newest products that are $7-9. I tried it and WOW! I was VERY impressed and it made my lashes look thicker in one application and I love the huge brush. I immediately placed my order for two more at $3.99 each! For that price I will continue to use this and to stock up for me and my daughter. I get tired of paying $6.99 or more for mascaras that clump and do not perform as promised.
Powder -Sheer Cover - Sheer Cover - Mineral Foundation
trolsgirl 6/15/2008 7:12:00 PM
I bought this five months ago and it was my first try using mineral makeup. I can honestly say I will use it forever. I am not a huge fan of the concealor but if you use a light touch it works okay. What I love is the foundation! I mix colors like nude & bisque and use the brush to apply it. I am very fair skinned and have a few blemish scars and this product evens out my skin tone and gives me a bit of natural looking color. I look so much better after using it that I will NOT go out of the house without make up! I get hardly any acne breakouts now and it keeps my skin clearer than before. I love the glosses that came with the introductory kit and the bronzer is nice and goes on beautifully for a hint of a tan if you like to add more color. I like the base perfector and use it on top of my moisturizer before applying the mineral foundation. I buy my refills on ebay to save money. I have tried Bare Escentuals and did not like it as much as Sheer Cover and it made my face itchy.
Powder -Neutrogena - Mineral Pressed Powder Foundation
trolsgirl 4/5/2008 6:20:00 PM
I like Neutrogena products as they are good for my skin and since this one had SPF 20 plus pure minerals I decided to try it. I love the ease of applying and the velvety soft finish it gives my skin. It is a bit matte for me and I wish it gave me more of a glow. It doesn't perfectly match my skin tone but few powders do. LOL It gives even coverage and last all day and I love the way my skin feels. I would buy this again on sale.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Sean John-Unforgivable Women

It has been a very long time since I have smelled a new scent in a magazine insert and had it impress me so much I had to buy a bottle of it immediately. (The last one that comes to mind is Calvin Klein's Escape which is an all-time favorite of mine and a classic.) When I purchased this scent I was very happy with the strength and its multi-layered notes. I am not sure which "scent" in the makeup of the perfume grabs me the most but it changes strength over time as you have it on and I love its musky tones and it definitely is for a woman and not a girl. I wish the scent lasted longer and I do not care too much for the shape of the bottle but I will keep this as a staple in my perfume lineup as it will be one of those I cannot do without!
Lip Gloss -Estee Lauder - Pure Pops Brush-on Color 'Berry Twist'
trolsgirl 11/4/2007 9:04:00 PM
I got this as a freebie with purchase and I really like the color, ease of applying & the scent. I don't know that I would pay full price for a new tube but it does last longer than my usual gloss & it is a beautiful berry color that flatters fair skin tones.
Not overly fond of the smell or the runniness of this product but Nivea makes very moisturizing products and I got it on clearance at CVS. It makes my skin smoother and softer and I feel hydrated and not sticky when applying it. I would definitely buy this when it is on sale.
Love just about any of the scents in Avon's lip balms and I stock up regularly when they are 69 cents. I have one in my purse, at my desk at work, on my desk at home and in my bathroom. These are great for kids to use too.
LOVE the citrus smell and it lifts my mood and makes my hands feel soft and moisturized. A little bit goes a long way so use it sparingly and I would NOT pay the full price of $12 so I wait for it to go on sale. Makes a great gift and I love that is dispenses from the botton of the bottle with a flip-top cap.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Passion Fruit Pop

Love the sheer silkiness and it looks fabulous on my lips. Just a hint of color with BEAUTIFUL shine and a yummy fruity smell! I would defnitely purchase this again and recommend for gift giving.
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - Naturals-Banana & Coconut Milk
trolsgirl 6/17/2007 3:15:00 PM
Love the smell of this lotion. VERY coconut fresh from the tropics smell and the banana is not overpowering. I don't like the bottle as I prefer a bottle that is a flip top on the bottom so gravity helps you get most of the product out. Very cheap so you can stock up when it is on sale and it makes a great gift.
Absolutely terrible! It clumped and my eyelashes kept sticking together and were stiff. It made my eyes water and itch and it was in the trash after the fourth use.
Styling Products -Avon - Advance Techniques Fresh Hair Extender
trolsgirl 12/13/2005 11:42:00 PM
I got this on sale for $1.99 per bottle. It definitely works and gets rid of grease and gives me volume. The only thing I was not too crazy about is the smell. It smelled a bit overwhelming and it was not flowery or perfumy like it should be.
Pressed Powders -E.L.F. - Clarifying Pressed Powder

Nice orange scent and it goes on smoothly. Product does not close easily when you try to place the applicator inside the package.
Lip Treatments -E.L.F. - Therapeutic Conditioning Balm-Vanilla Creme

Great product that rivals Soft Lips. Great slim tube and it makes my lips feel moisturized. Would definitely buy again for $1 per tube!
