Eye Shadow -New York Color - Metro Quartet-Union Square (818A)
yaitza 6/28/2010 11:06:00 PM
This product it's ok, cheap but not as good as WnW. Colors didn't show up well on my skin and after a few hours the colors faded and looked like I only had one brown shade ( I used all 4). It will probably work better with primer, which I skipped since I was in a hurry. Will give it another try with primer and we'll see. Won't repurchase anyway.
I love colorburst l/s !! For me, they are one of the best DS l/s out there. Peach is a very flattering shade with a pinky peach color, it has very tiny silvery shimmer, nothing OTT. The formula is great, feels soft and it lasted for over 5 hrs ( I wiped it out to eat lunch, since I just can't eat with any lip product on). I will re-purchase and strongly recommend.
Foundations -New York Color - Smooth Skin Liquid Makeup

With this hot weather, I was quite impressed with how well this product kept my face shine-free. I also had the NYC pressed powder to help. I really hated how thick the product was and how hard was to get it out of the bottle, a pump would work better. After a few hours, the product completely dissapeared but my face wasn't shiny at all. I wouldn't ask for more considering how cheap it is. It is a good product for " I am on a hurry day" but I wouldn't use it if you are looking for a long lasting polished look. I won't re-purchase, anyway you a get a lot of product in the bottle.
I bought this product after reading all the reviews here. I liked the formula and the minty smell and feeling. I use it after my mint julep face scrub twice a week and it works well. It helps me in controlling the shine in my face and reducing the size of my pores. It worked even better (oil control and drying pimples) in my DH who I torture often with my routine. Will re-purchase.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - EyeStudio Color Plush quad in Mad for Mauve

I love this quad! It actually looks very pretty and natural with my brown eyes. I love the texture, it feels creamy but isn't a cream shadow, and it applies and blends well, like mousse to powder. I will re-purchase.
Overall, I love Maybelline products. So when I saw this cream-foundation I had to try it!! The formula claims to be cream-whipped, but it was more in the creamy/pasty side and didn't feel light on my skin. I have been using it for over a week, and due to the hot weather, didn't work well, my face was oily and shiny after 30 mins. It probably works better on dry skin gals! I'll stick with dream matte mousse.
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Shine Sensational in Tempting Toffee (#55)

I love this gloss!! I own all 18 shades of this gloss, but I have to say this one is the best and the more pigmented one. It's a brownish-pinkish shade ( if that makes sense) that works perfect on my NW20 skintone. The smell is not overpowering, like cupcakes. The shine is just perfect, no glitter at all. I strongly recommend this product and I will re-purchase again ( after using my backup :) )
Lip Treatments -Chapstick - 100% Naturals - Lip Butter

I love this lip balm. Yesterday my lips were so dry and one of the users recommended me Chapstick 100% Naturals-Lip Butter, I quickly bought it and I love it! I also got the Chapstick 100% Naturals- Botanical Medley and is not as good as the Lip Butter one. My lips look so soft and smooth today!!

BAD BAD BAD! It makes me break out! It controls the shine for a few minutes, but then my face is shiny. My BF used it and she had break outs too. I dont recommend it.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
yaitza 11/8/2007 2:07:00 PM
Is just a yellow lotion made from the cheapest ingredients.Even the oily skin formula makes my face looks like Im wearing baby oil. My face feels too greasy and when Im applying the foundation-powder it starts to coming out from my skin, leaving non-sexy stripes on my face. It looks like my face never absorbs it. No SPF, so you have apply some SPF making your face shinier. I dont recommend it, i will never re-purchase.
Lip Gloss -Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Lip Gloss - Rose Sugar

I like the formula, how it smells, how it feels, but I will never re-purchase. It's to small and the brush is a piece of crap. When I was at the counter I saw the brush bristles pointing everywhere, but I thought that they cut them, or because the times that people tried it. When I came home and tried it on, I had to re-apply it several times because of the brush, it never gives a good amount of product. It looks like a sample with a dollar tree store brush.
I dont like this lipstick. I bought 4 different shades, that on me look alike. I don't like either how it smells, and it's too creamy that melts easily. It looks like if you give it a little of pressure is going to break. It was cheap $ 4 in special, and never dried my lips. Good pigment and lasted long. I will purchase it again just for the price and because Im a makeup-aholic
I don't die for this lipgloss but is pretty good. The color is not the best for me, I have fair to medium skin tone, so I cant see color on my lips, just shine. The color is like a golden peachy pink, in the tube looks so beautiful, is not sticky, feels good on my lips, smells good, and is cheap, I paid $4 in special. I purchased different colors, and the pigment is never good enough for me. I will purchase the product again just for the shine, price and smell
Im the minority in here, but this mascara works perfect on me. After winning as the best mascara in most of the magazines, I decided to give it a try, so I went to Walmart and I bought 2 tubes for the price of 1. Im not giving the 5 lippies because even the waterproof formula after 5 hrs gives me racoon eyes, but I have combination skin. Is cheap, not clumpy and I prefer the curved brush rather than the normal one.
Lip Gloss -Estee Lauder - Pure Pops Brush-on Color 'Pink Cupcake'

The color in the tube its pretty, glittery and shiny; but on my lips it only gives glitter and no color at all. It didn't last more than 10 mins, it smells good, but no pigment. The formula is like a dollar tree lipgloss but overpriced. I will never purchase again.
