This is my new favorite blush! I used to not wear blush mainly because I didn't know how to apply it properly, but I bought this and I'm obsessed! PROS- -long wearing -highly pigmented -really natural peachy pink shade -affordable price -pan lasts a long time CONS- -can be hard to find, I only have 1 store near me that carries Milani and I live in a large city... -would like it Even better if it had a tad less glitter -packaging looks cheap but that's just me being a brat

*This review is for the medium color, will update when I try the dark color. I'm gonna keep this simple + short... PROS: *dries fast, which is also sort of a con, make sure to moisturize beforehand *realistic color *not a horrible scent *good color payoff, fake bake mousse washed right off *cheap price for the tanner itself, I think I paid 4.99$ CONS: *if you don't moisturize before its hard to blend *shipping from UK is expensive and slow *if I don't wash my face/moisturize before it can settle into my pores and look dirty **will DEFINITELY stain palms, wear gloves!!
I love this lip color along with the lipglass. I'm pretty fair skinned but this is my favorite nude color to wear. My lips get really dry so I prep with some kind of lip moisturizer then apply the lipstick which definitely tones down the color a little and makes it a perfect nude shade! I wish it wasn't LE!
Lip Treatments -Mary Kay - Satin Lips mask and balm

I have tried many products for my seemingly incurable flaky chapped lips but this is by far the best I've ever tried. This not only has immediate effects but also lasts through the day which is the biggest problem I have with other lip balms. Definitely will re purchase!

Ive been using this foundation for a few months and my skin definitely looks better. I dont have rosacea but I have alot of acne scarring that is very red so this does a nice job counter acting the redness. I gave this 4 stars because I think it breaks me out on occasion. I also use the redness relief yellow loose powder which I like alot. **UPDATE: after using this for a while I think my skin got used to it or something and the color began to look off and it was getting cakey and weird...I repurchased twice but probably wouldn't again
Treatments -Joico - k-pak deep penetrating reconstructor
xsnowwhite 11/16/2011 11:33:00 PM
This product completely saved my hair! Let me give a brief history of my hair, had higlights, got bored and colored it black, decided i was over that, bleached it, highlighted it shortly after to get it even lighter. My hair is a good 5 inches past my shoulders, and I flat iron it. After all those terrible decisions my hair felt like straw on the last 3 or so inches of length,so I needed intense repair (and a haircut). I used the k-pak shampoo, conditioner, and this deep treatment 2x a week and within a month my hair felt completely back to normal. I highly reccomend this to anyone with damaged hair! I will always go back to this when my hair gets damaged!
Makeup Brushes -Unlisted Brand - Kirkland Signature by Borghese Brush Set 2009

These are by far my favorite brushes! I was using the hard candy brush set but got these for christmas around 2 years ago and theyre still in amazing shape. I will definitely be buying another set this year just because the new set contains brushes that my set didnt come with. THe brushes dont shed alot and the color goes on so well, and theyre also very soft. Highly recommend!
Lip Treatments -Hard Candy - World Balmination in Bridal Blush

Im so glad I went to walmart and picked this up. I wasnt expecting much, its only 3 dollars but I am impressed. The color is pretty sheer, and my lips are pretty pigmented to begin with but it feels really smooth and moisturizing on. I will definitely pick up more of these in other colors. My only complaint is about packaging like the previous reviewer wrote, the stick is already like twisted up but it doesnt go down when you first purchase. Other than that , definitely a good cheap find!
I honestly dont see how this got such high reviews. I do LOVE the scent along with all other Escada perfumes but the scent literally wont even last from the time I put it on to the time I get to work! I wish I could say I love it because it does smell amazing but unfortunately I cant say I love it because of the bad lasting power. Im glad I only bought the mini spray as opposed to a 1.7 or 3 oz bottle
Fragrances -Paris Hilton - Heiress by Paris Hilton
xsnowwhite 7/2/2011 11:12:00 PM
This is one of my favorite fragrances. I found a good deal at walmart and was hesitant of the quality but it actually lasts a really long time. I also only need 1 spray to last which is rare. Even my escada fragrances fade really quickly. I love the scent its almost pear like to me but hard to explain. I would reccomend this if you like the scent, as it does have good staying power and its affordable, plus the bottle is cute!
This is now my go-to makeup palette. I love all of the colors except honey pot(and I only dislike it because it really clashes with my skin tone) but the rest are perfect. The matte dark brown is a perfect brow color and the classic eye colors in the middle row are great for everyday wear. THe colors all go on very smooth and blend nicely, even when I use my cheap brushes with them. I got this as a gift and now I want to try the naked eye kit, seeing that it has alot of nice neutral colors as well. I definitely recommend this if you wear alot of neutral colors .
I was really excited to try this after hearing about it on numerous websites. Ive been using sunless tanners for about 3 yrs now so I've tried out ALOT of brands! When it first goes on it is very dark but then when I wake up in the morning its much lighter. I was expecting a darker tan from this, considering my Hawaiian tropic makes me darker. It is a very realistic color though just not as dark as I wanted. Not to mention the smell is awful and if you don't wear gloves you will definitely have stained palms. I want to try xen tan next, which I've heard better reviews about. ***EDIT: After showering once, my tan pretty much completely washed away. I even tried tanning 2 days in a row, but it just doesnt stay on my skin.
I LOVE this mascara! It is definitely my new favorite. My lashes are really short and not that full and normally they look long at first but droop after about an hour. I used this and my lashes were long all day long. I also tried using the falsies first in a zig-zag motion, and while it was drying I used the one by one over top but instead of zig zag motion I blinked slowly into the mascara wand and it looked like I was wearing false lashes.
This is a really affordable product which first drew me to it. I have alot of acne/acne scars and redness so I was realllyyy skeptical about the coverage/staying power. It surprised me and covers very well, and it lasts a long time! I work 10 hour days so around the 8 hour mark I may need to reapply over some of the acne marks but otherwise it lasts a long time. I agree about previous reviews that it can get cakey so I just makesure to moisturize beforehand and apply a pearly blush and bronzer so it doesnt look flat.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Summer Vanillas Berry
xsnowwhite 5/12/2010 11:34:00 PM
I absolutely love this lotion it is by far my new favorite. First of all the scent is amazing, it smells kind of like gummy bears or something and fades into vanilla later on. Second I think b&bw changed their formula or something because this is much more moisturizing than the other signiture lotions I have. My skin was so dry and patchy but after using this it has gotten alot better, which I was surprised at because usually I dont think their lotion is that hydrating. I even bought like 3 mini ones for my purse and such.
