Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
xoSweetestSin 9/22/2012 7:09:00 PM
Love this product. Couldn't go a day without it. Makes your eye make up stay on all day. Colors pop out beautifully! I use it as a primer for my eyebrows as well. HG. This is one product that is so consistent that I don't see myself straying from or wondering about different primers. If it aint broke don't fix it....
I bought this product because I heard in a review that it is similar to Nars Orgasm, and I wasn't too sure yet about getting that blush. So I decided to give this a try especially since it was only 1.50 with my discount! I'm disappointed. It doesn't show up its so sheer/light. And so I try to put more product and no color, just a golden glitter. I can hardly imagine this barely showing up on even the palest skin tone! Fail. But one good thing out of this is, that if this blush is any indication of what the Nars Orgasm is, then I just saved myself a whopping $26.50+tax and a trip to sephora!!! So, in reality, it's a win.
Skincare - Body -Bath and Body Works - Warm vanilla sugar (whole line)
xoSweetestSin 9/22/2012 6:52:00 PM
I've never been a fan of Vanilla scents. Far from it. Boy did this change me! Or now maybe I'm only a fan of b&bw's vanillas :) So it all started one day, long ago, when my friend let me use her antibacterial foam in warm vanilla sugar. After that fateful day, boy was I hooked! Since then I've had this in the pocket sanitizer, lotion, foam, and soap. I looove it as a soap, smells so good and freshening. I love pairing it as a lotion with a different body spray/perfume thats not vanilley. I don't think I'd ever use it as a spray just because I think that would be too much for me. But I'd love to have this in a car fragrance! Then I'd probably just find excuses to get in my car and drive somewhere.
This make up claims to stay and it does not lie. You will have a hard time getting it off even after soap and water. I would wash my face twice. I don't know what's in it but I prolly don't want to know. This product made me break out so bad. The only times I ever gotten big hurtful pimples is when using this product, and MAC foundation. hm.. what a coincidink? I didn't take off all lippies because this is a good foundation for drugstore! I'm not a make up snob but I just can't go drugstore for foundation. It just doesn't work for me. I'm guessing maybe I broke out so bad was because this stuff never completely came off. It's been a year since I last used it and I'm not sure if there's still residue of it left on my face O.O lol **If you're looking for a liquid foundation and are on a budget, I'd definitely try this one out to see if it works for your skin though.
This setting powder is now my favorite. I've tried the Makeup Forever one, the tarte setting powder, the ELF HD setting powder, and the hard candy welcome matte. Some of these were decent but I'd say this cheaper alternative rice powder is even better! I bought this product and had it for a while, before I really used it because I was kind of weary of using a cheap powder for my skin for fear of breaking out. Color: Translucent, I use this to set my liquid foundation Pros *Very fine powder with velvety feel (finer than those mentioned above) *Stayed on longer (I didn't freak if I had forgotten to bring something to touch up with) *Oil/Shine control *Nice pleasant smell *You get a lot of product, 17g *Gives you a natural matte face without the powdered cakey look *It's cheap! Cons: *The packaging, can not travel without it exploding in your bag That's about it. For those complaining about the color not being completely translucent, it does NOT show any color to your skin, it completely disappears onto your skin. The only flaw is the packaging but honestly I'd rather have a good product with crappy packaging than the other way around.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner

I got this eyeliner after reading so many good reviews. I really wanted to love it. Pros *Super black (I got the carbon black) *Glides on smoothly, beautiful texture Cons *Like many reviewers here, it made my eyes water all day! It didn't make them red, or itchy, or blurry, but just constant watery teary glossy eyes. I was surprised, however, that even with the all the wateriness, it still managed to somewhat stay put more than other liners. I find my eyes water less if only applied on the top lash line. I've never had this happen to my eyes so I definitely wouldn't consider myself having sensitive eyes. It just wasn't worth it for me. I'm hoping I still have the receipt so I can return it.
I was so excited to paint my nails a beautiful pale lavender pastel, and to my utter dismay, an off white color was all I got. I was sure that with enough effort and coats, that lavender will show its face soon. I mean, OPI wouldn't do this to me, right? 4 coats later............ It's just a thicker off white color. pale lavender beautiful pastel Who? But I actually don't mind this new color that I was not expecting. It's a shiny nude kinda nail color, something I don't usually do but I like it. I don't feel like returning it now because I could use it for those days I feel like going nude. Even though it still worked out for me I'm still kind of upset that I bought it thinking I was going to get the color on the bottle. This is the One time that I didn't open the bottle and look at the color first, def will be more careful next time.
I believe this blush does boost my mood a bit because of the wonderful smell it has! I have to smell it every time before I use it! The color isn't too pigmented, it doesn't actually come that dark as the swatch in the picture without it taking Work. And I don't think it has much staying power either. But the packaging is just too cute and I love the smell and the mood it puts me in! ^_^
Pressed Powders -Hard Candy - Welcome Matte Mattifying Powder
xoSweetestSin 5/19/2012 5:33:00 AM
Great blotting powder! Doesn't make you look like a ghost, gets rid of shine/oil. If my face gets oily, I like to take a tissue and dab my face first, and then blot on the mattifying powder. I never use the kute little heart shaped sponge, I use a brush of my own. The price is excellent and worth it.
Absolutely LOVE this product!! I don't know how I ever lived without it. It covers up any imperfection so well. It's not too thick where you can feel it on but it masks boo boos really well. It's super cheap, I get mine at Walmart but I'd pay a good price if I had to. A Must have!
Liquid -Rimmel - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation
xoSweetestSin 2/11/2011 10:07:00 PM
Usually if I go to a drug store I find my color and buy it but thank God I tried this one on first since there were few colors to choose from. All the colors were soooo LIGHT! Does rimmel only cater to the fair skinned? or does it oxidize to a whole new shade? when I tried it on my skin it didnt even look similar to the color on the label. or maybe I needed to shake the bottle? and when I went through the reviews everyone was either "fair-medium" so I guess it makes sense. however there was a 5 lippie review from someone whos skin tone was labeled "tan". not 4 me. still on the quest to find my HG
i don't know why there are no reviews for this product..maybe bc its new? I just got back from sephora and I love the cover fx liquid found. but the girl gave me a sample of this perfecting cover foundation and I tried it on and I like it! its good coverage, so silky, blendable, and has a very matte finish! i have yellow undertones and it matches. I kno it's too soon to say so since I've only had it on for 5 minutes, never know how itll look after it oxidizes..but I feel like going back to sephora right now and buying it....should i? i take that as a yes :) note: i gave it 4 lippies for now since i know so little
Love this Product! Coverage is Great! I got spoiled by that...Although you might want to use a good setting powder afterward becuase it is a bit dewy..for any skin type. No break outs. this line is designed for acne prone skin. So you get the extreme full coverage along with clear skin. Double Whammy. Since I ran out and couldnt get to a sephora, I heard about the drug store revlon colorstay, got a bottle. it isn't bad! A lighter wear, less dewy but a tad less coverage. but very comparible for a fraction of the price! I'd still say if you can afford the 40$ a bottle, go for cover FX. <3
I dont think the reviews do this product justice! Mascara is a MUST 4 me and I am not shy to spend as much as it takes to get the perfect mascara. And to no avail I have!!! I'm not a fan of "testing" certain makeup products so I go by what I am told and have ended up spending hundreds of dollars on mascara alone. If you can name it I have it somewhere in one of my makeup bags. THIS IS THE ONLY ONE YOU WILL EVER NEED 2 TRY. I am saving you the hundreds of dollars I couldn't save 4 myself. My HG 4 life!
Murad Acne Kit wow by the reviews of this product u'd think they put gasoline in a tube and sold it for 30$ lol well I have a different take on it. Everyone's skin is different. Usually I am pretty low maintenance on my skin routine, i wash twice daily and could use antibac hand soap if i had to. I have mild acne but for some reason my face was flaring up. Bought Murad. purging process was noticeable but minimal. after the first wk or 2 my face def cleared up a lot. breaks outs were of the past. PROS: Put the sulfur on (last step) overnight, and the pimple disappears by morning. Clean Feeling Clearer Skin Doesn't create a dependency (I can go a couple days without it and my skin will not freak out) Fairly Priced CONS: I guess its harsh for sensitive people. Purging Process (4 some ppl) I don't have many complaints Oh and the smell is not bad at all. Just people being babies.
