This is new for Urban Decay. I received an e-mail tellig me of there new Matte eyeshadow palette. So I ordered it since I have been lookig for Matte eyeshadows for awhile and I already have the Too Faced Matte palette and like if also. This pallette is about half the size of the other 2 Naked palettes they currently have. It has 6 shades of browns from a real light ecru to a deep black/brown. There is though 1 shiney shadow which is a light color. These colors are great and when applied they look so nice and soft not all sparkly . They are great if you want a more soft and natural look. The price for this palette is only $28.00. Sorry no pic but you can go to their website and take a look at it. The case has a rubbery type texture and it snaps shut. Great also for traveling or carrying it in your purse.
Treatments -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - Gly-Luronic Acid Serum
xlitlbitx 9/6/2012 2:55:00 AM
I was torn about this product after reading all the mixed reviews. I have acne/oily skin and also have melasma on parts of my face. So I decided to purchase a sample and hoped that it would help my skin. After a few days of using it I saw a diffence with my acne and spots on my face. I was so pleased and decided to purchase a full size bottle and then saw the price "Ouch" so since I only use it at night I decided to purchase a sample again as I don't use alot of it, just at night and just use my finger tips to apply it.
Toners -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - Blemish Buster Astringent
xlitlbitx 9/6/2012 2:48:00 AM
I purchased this to try and see if it would help my acne/oily skin and it has done a great job so far. I use it in combination with the cleanser. I have been using it for about 2 weeks twice a day and have seen great results using them. It doesn't dry my skin out at all it leaves my skin soft and smooth. I decided to purchase a full size bottle after fiishing up the sample size.
Cleansers -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - Blemish Buster

I also received this as a sample and didn't know for sure what this product was for so I looked it up and saw that it was for acne/oily skin so I though what the heck I would try it and see what happens. I had purchased the toner and so I thought I would try them together and after about a week my skin started clearing up and looking better than it has for awhile. I am so pleased with this I bought a full size bottle.
Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees - Milk & Honey Body Lotion
xlitlbitx 5/2/2012 12:08:00 PM
I got this in a kit which I am glad I did as I am not a big fan of this lotion. I don't care much for the strong honey smell. When I squeezed some out of the tube it looked nice rich and creamy but when I went to rub it in it was like water. I have never had a lotion do that before and then the over powering smell of honey that lingers on for awhile. I will definelty not be buying this again.
Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
xlitlbitx 5/2/2012 11:49:00 AM
I got this in the hand repair kit, I had really bad dry and split cuticles. I tried alot if different cuticle repair brands and found this to be the best so far. Im not much for citrus smell but it has a light aroma so not to bad. I use the almond milk cream after I apply this creme and it has worked wonders on my nails and cuticles. Just don't like the tin. its hard to get it out.
Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees - Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme
xlitlbitx 5/2/2012 11:43:00 AM
I bought this in a kit to try because my cuticles were in really bad shape. The combination with the lemon cuticle salve works great together. I have been only been using them both for about a week and they have done a great job in helping them get back to normal. The only thing I don't like is that jar. It makes it hard to get the cream out other than that I love this stuff. The reason for the 4 lippies is due to the container it comes in. But will buy again.
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil
xlitlbitx 5/2/2012 11:30:00 AM
I got this in a kit with some hand creams and salves for my hands. Im glad I like everything else that came in the kit. Anyways, This stuff dried my lips out so bad it was like it gave me chapped lips. So disappointed!!! So needless to say wont be buying again nor any other ones.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clarisonic - Deep Pore brush head
xlitlbitx 3/20/2012 3:53:00 AM
I love this brush, when I bought my clarisonic it came with the sensitive brush and it did help clean my face some but still had a little bit of grime left. I saw that they came out with this brush so I decided to try it since I have oily/acne skin. After using it I noticed a great deal of difference between the 2 brushes. I cant believe the cost of these though. Thank goodness for ebay though, just bought 3 of these brushes for $42.00 which is way better than $75.00. I will continue to purchase this brush as it's great.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clarisonic - Pro Skincare Brush
xlitlbitx 3/20/2012 3:44:00 AM
I was using the derma new brush for a while since is was much cheaper than the clarisonic and didn't want to spend the money on it as we all know its expensive and thought that the results would all be the same as I'm sure other think that way to. Anyways one of my good friends found a really good deal on the pro and I said what the heck I will get one as I still was interested in it and thought that I may not get this deal again. I started using it 2x's a day and it was to much for my skin, should of known better than to jump in. It irritated my skin so I gave it break and then started using it just at night and saw a great deal of difference in my skin, it was clean, soft and glowy. Much more different than the other brush I was using. It came with the sensitive brush and saw that they had diffent ones so I tried the deep pore brush since I work in a dirty assembly plant and I have oily/acne skin. It did much better. I am still using it and still loving it.
This is one of the newest products that GoW have came out with and I always look to see what is new or in the sample page and found this so when I place an order I chose this as my sample since I saw what it was suppose to do. "This serum nourishes and heals skin, while providing excellent anti-inflammatory effects for damaged, irritated and swollen skin. A great anti-aging and acne fighting serum, our Synergistic Anti-inflammatory Niacinamide and B-5 Serum is great for youthful or mature skin, and is full of essential vitamins for the promotion of healthy skin." I noticed a great deal of change in my skin by using this, it helped me with my blemishes that I had been fighting with for a few months and inflamed skin. I have only been using this 1x a day but states you can use it 2x's a day. After samples are gone I will buy again. This stuff is great!

This product is GREAT!!! I love this stuff! I use alot of GoW products and I love alot of there products. I was looking for a cleanser to help with my dry, red itchy patches on my face. I decided to try this. It only took a couple weeks for me to see my patches clearing up. There are lot of great ingredients in this product. List of Ingredients Organic Oatmeal - natural cleanser/thickener Glycerin (vegetable sourced) - humectant - vegetable derived - literally draws moisture out of the air to skin when applied topically Heather Blossoms - anti-inflammatory - gently astringent - soothing - healing Heather Blossom Honey - antibacterial - soothing - healing Surfactant Free Liquid Soap - created with the purest, environmentally friendly, cruelty free and veggie-derived ingredients found Pure, fresh lemon juice - gently astringent Heather Flower Essence - the essence of heather flowers is used internally as a soul nourisher. :-) We added this essence to help the skin feel protected and loved Optiphen - broad spectrum paraben free preservative Its also helped with my blemishes as well and inflammation. I will have to see if this is just for winter or all year around as I normally used Jen's Green tea/shea Cleanser but will defiantly buy again.
Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand - Devita Daily Solar Protective Moisturizer spf 30
xlitlbitx 6/29/2011 7:01:00 AM
I love this product!! I have hyperpigmentation on my face and this stuff is great in helping from making the darker. It also doesn't clog my pores or cause my skin to break out. I use it everyday before going out side and I put it on before I put on my MU. It is a bit pricey but will buy again since it helps.
I wanted to try this cream after reading about it on the GoW site and I use several of the products for my face and found to like a lot of them I decided to check this stuff out since I don't like normal shaving gels and foams, I currently have been using cheap hair conditioner and liked it best out of what the choices we have in the stores. Well I have used this stuff 3 times now and I really like it. When I shave it doesn't clog up my razor and it rinses off very well plus I like the fact that it doesn't stick to the shower walls like all the other stuff I have used and my skin is super soft. It is a little expensive but hope I get my moneys worth if the bottle lasts longer than anything else since it doesn't take much to cover the areas needed
Cleansers -Garden of Wisdom - Almond Milk Papaya Enzyme Cleanser
xlitlbitx 6/29/2011 6:35:00 AM
I like this cleanser as an exfoliator. I normally use this about 3x's a week. Its very gentle and smells very nice and mild. It makes my skin feel squeaky clean and soft. When I'm in the shower after washing my face I wlll rub it around for a few times and let it set for a few mins. I will always have this in my shower.
