I had been searching for a bright but neutral pink lipstick (if that makes sense) forever and this is it. It is a bit cool but not like barbie pink, more of a rose pink. As the other reviewer mentioned you do have to swipe a couple times for it to be opaque but I'm usually heavy handed w my lipsticks so that is not a problem for me. On me it's very moisturizing and lasts about 3hrs before I need to reapply. I would've given it 5 stars but it is not super long lasting and at $22 a piece the price is a tad high. I love the color so much and am almost out of my first one which I purchased about 2mths ago and have worn almost everyday since, so I will def be repurchasing this lippie!
Moisturizers -L'Oreal - Youth Code Day/Night Cream

I had used this awhile back and thought what a nice cream but after finishing 2 containers I decided to try Olay total effects night cream to see if it might be better. I have oily skin and the Olay cream was just too greasy for me. I tried finishing the container before going back to the L'Oreal Youth Code but I just couldn't, so I went and picked it up yesterday and used it last night. I just can't say how good this cream is, especially for oily skinned people like myself. It is moisturizing but not greasy or shiny. It is kind of thick but once you rub it in and it absorbs, your skin will feel so soft!

I love this cleanser!!! I have very oily skin and was always buying oil control cleansers that would strip my skin and give it that tight dry feeling. This stuff cleans my face well without making it dry and tight, and my skin actually gets less oily with this cleanser. I've seen some ppl complain about the scent, which is actually very strong, but I find it pleasant.

This is nice if you're looking for a gray color with sparkle. I was looking for a silver shimmer shadow and this wasn't it :/ I gave it a 3 because the price and package aren't bad but it's not very true to color.

I have super oily skin that doesn't give me the freedom to wear eyeshadow very often but I just saw these online and decided to go out and buy one. I went to 2 different DS and they were out of the colors I wanted and finally the 3rd had one, pomegranate punk which I bought, so my guess is that it's hard to get these at the store since they run out so quick. Although the colors aren't as vibrant as they look I must say this stuff is awesome. I've had it on for about 8 hours now and there is no creasing or fading, which is great!
I have really thin light eyebrows and was looking for something that made them darker without looking so fake and this works wonders. It keeps the hairs in place and does darken them without being so dramatic. I noticed that Revlon has a brown enhancer crayon that has pretty good reviews and I might be trying it once I run out. The only downside is that Revlon keeps making things with 2 sides and it'd be better if they just made the whole thing one product, so it doesn't run out as quick.

This stuff is great, it makes my skin look like porcelain and feels like silk when you're putting it on. I have very oily skin and this makes me instantly matte and gives me a good 5-6hrs of no shine. I don't use foundation, just powder so not really sure how it works on keeping foundation on. I love this stuff and will keep using it as long as they make it!
Eyeliner -Almay - intense i-color liquid liner- purple amethyst

I bought this yesterday and am returning it. The lid looks like a dark shimmery purple which is what I was hoping for. I am very light complected and when I applied this you could barely tell it was there. It is much lighter than the color on the lid. The reason I gave it a 3 is because it does go on smoothly and it has nice packaging. If you're looking for something subtle this might be for you but if you want something dark and dramatic I would not recommend this.
I've only tried a sample of this and was amazed. Went to the store and Walmart was out so I had to get Tresemme. Not very impressed with it, so I'm waiting to finish the Tresemme up and then go buy none other than Suave. It did exactly what it said, had a pleasant scent, gave my hair volume, and absorbed all the oil :) Best dry shampoo for those with thin oily hair like me!

The first dry shampoo I tried was Suave and I loved it but had to get this one when Walmart ran out of Suave one day. I'm gonna use it until I run out and if I absolutely had to would buy it again but if there is Suave in stock that is my first choice. Compared to Suave (as that is the only other dry shampoo I have tried) this one doesn't have a very pleasant smell (smells like Aquanet HairSpray) and after spraying leaves hair feeling a tad wet so you have to wait a couple minutes to style. Doesn't give any volume and costs almost twice as much as Suave. But I did give it a 4 since it does the most important part of it's claim of absorbing oil and leaving hair looking clean. It does leave a white cast on hair but since I put it on before styling, once I'm done brushing and styling the white cast is gone.

I bought this for shine control and it doesn't do that for me. It smells good and leaves my face feeling clean without drying it out but if you're an oily person such as myself this is probably not the best cleanser to reduce shine.

I have oily skin and that's the reason I bought this. As other reviewers mentioned, this does not really control shine as it claims. I gave it 3 lippies because I do like the scent and it does leave my face feeling clean, but dry sometimes....If you are looking for a cleanser that controls shine, this isn't it....
Moisturizers -Desert Essence - Thoroughly Clean Oil Control Lotion
zamaa 12/22/2011 11:42:00 AM
I gave this one 3 lippies because I like the way it feels when I put it on and it has a pleasant smell. However, I bought this because I have very oily skin and wanted something that would moisturize and control oil and this just didn't do that for me. After putting it on I look shiny and shortly after putting on makeup I become even oilier. This might work for non-oily people but I would not recommend it to those seeking oil control in a lotion.

I bought this yesterday and I'm in luv! :) I have barely there eyebrows and have used pencils, powders, wax, and tinted gels that all look super fake on me. Lately I've just been using powder alone but I didn't think it looked very natural. A friend recommended using this to blend it the powder so I went and got some (it was only $1) and it's awesome! It blended in very well with the powder and my eyebrows now look fuller, darker, and natural!
I love this stuff and never go anywhere without it! I have super short lashes and I get the Very Black and it gives me great length and volume for a decent price :) Totally recommend it to everyone!
