Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion

I would like this product, but I really can't stand the smell. Or rather, lack thereof. It's very moisturizing and sinks in pretty well. I can't really say if it stops the itching on dry skin because I don't really have that issue. But after I shave my legs and they're dry, this makes them soft.
Mascara -Maybelline - Lash Stylist Mascara ] [DISCONTINUED]
xxtaylorlaurenxx 1/25/2009 1:34:00 PM
I'm able to get huge lashes with Lash Stylist. The comb takes some getting used to, but it gives me incredible length and thickness. Plus it's super cheap and you can find it in any drugstore.
The perfect tweezers. There is nothing better. Every woman in America needs Tweezerman. End of story.
Perfect perfect perfect color. A gorgeous light pink plum mauve shade. It goes perfect with my eyes and skin tone. I've already bought two backups because this is special edition! A perfect gloss!
I bought this because I thought it might be a cheapie blush I could maybe use as a bronzer. It's really orangey and streaky on me. I wasn't expecting much from NYC, but I guess I'm just not made for a deep peach blush. BTW, I have very fair skin so I'm sure that's why. I imagine this would look fantastic on darker complexions, but not me.
I like the smell of this, but it doesn't last long at all. You can't really expect much from a cheap VS perfume, but I kind of wanted it to last for at least an hour.
Brows -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Anastasia Brow Gel
xxtaylorlaurenxx 1/25/2009 1:20:00 PM
I got a little sample of this from Sephora, and I can't stop using it. I have really thick brows which can look terrible when I don't use brow gel on them. This brow gel is absolutely the best. It's clear so it won't make them look too dark, and the hold is fantastic. It's kind of expensive but when I run out of the sample I will definitely purchase the full-size version.
Palettes -Too Faced - Decade of Glamour Beauty Wardrobe Makeup Collection
xxtaylorlaurenxx 1/25/2009 12:32:00 PM
I usually hate makeup palettes, but I really like them from Too Faced. I wanted to get this because it had some discontinued shades that I wanted to try. The colors are fun and wearable; I especially love the Grapefruit Beauty Balm. The eyeshadows are really nice and pigmented, and the highlighter/bronzer is really gorgeous. It comes with a mini Lava Gloss black eyeliner, which is great to take in your purse. I love love love the Lip Injection and was really happy that it was a full-size. I find myself using a part of this palette every day, and since there are a lot of products to choose from I feel like it will last a long time.
I'm a candle freak, and I love anything sweet smelling. The Rum candle is to die for. It smells so delicious, but definitely not overpowering. I used to burn this in my dorm room and people would always come in and ask me what that amazing smell was! It's super super expensive, but if you have the money for it and love candles you should definitely try it. It's a pretty big jar, and I'm still using mine after almost a year.
This is a great, great scrub for those who have sensitive skin or those who don't want unnecessary abrasiveness. It's gentle but effective. After using it I always notice that my skin is smoother than when I just use my normal cleanser. Although rough scrubs feel like they're working, it just creates an irritation in your skin and really does nothing. The product is supposed to be used in place of your regular cleanser 2-3 times a week. It's expensive, but worth it! I got mine in December 2007 and I still have 1/3 left. I would definitely buy again.
I really like the Color Revitalize shampoo. First of all, you get a giant bottle for around 3 or 4 bucks. It's a clear formula so it won't weigh hair down, and it leaves it really smooth with no frizz. I color my hair every 3 months, and since I've used this I've noticed my hair stays a little more vibrant than usual. It also smells really good! Like pears or something.
Oh my God. This smells SO BAD. Maybe it's just me, but I literally could not wear this deodorant. In the package it smells okay, but then when it's actually on your body it smells repulsive. I can't really say anything about it's effectiveness because the smell turned me off so much.
Soooo pretty. Opalescent pink, very sheer but still beautiful. It looks great layered over a light or medium shade of pink lipstick. Too bad it's LE
My skin is weird & sensitive so it's hard to find moisturizers that don't break me out. This stuff is pretty good. It's very light and nongreasy, and it hasn't broken me out at all (I've been using it for about 4 months now...still on the same bottle!) It's cheap and you can find it at pretty much any drugstore. It's definitely worth a try..especially if you have problematic skin and don't want to spend too much on a moisturizer that will just cause breakouts.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Exotic Coconut
xxtaylorlaurenxx 1/12/2009 2:15:00 PM
Ehh I really wanted to like this, but I'm so weird with coconut scents. I guess I like more manufactured coconut scents, because this is a very natural smell. It's not unpleasant in any way but it's just not my favorite. However, it is very moisturizing and non-greasy, just like all of B&BW's lotions. I bought a mini bottle so I probably will use it all up by the spring, and I don't think I'd repurchase again.
