What I like about these lipsticks are how pigmented they are. I've swatched several in store, and they're all very true to color. I decided to purchase color #547 Pleasure Me Red. It's a very bright red with pink undertones. Since this was purchased in the UK, the price was about £7.


These particular lipsticks needs a lip brush. Really, you will not get around …

Shampoo - TRESemmé - PURIFY & REPLENISH Deep Cleansing Shampoo with Vitamin C

Apr/25/2012

I needed a deep cleansing shampoo in order to remove the grease from my coconut oil treatments, so I searched on MakeupAlley for a cheap, drugstore alternative, and based on the reviews, decided to purchase this one.


To start with, here's some background information: I have thin, wavy hair. It gets dry easily and suffers from heat damage due to my love/hate relationship with …

Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Chocomania Body Butter

I love the smell of chocolate. I also love the luxurious feel of body butter. Combine these two loves together, and you'll get TBS's Chocomania Body Butter. This stuff is simply amazing.


As a body butter, it's very moisturizing. It's creamy and thick, and claims that it gives 48 hours worth of hydration. For me, I found this to be nothing but the truth. My dry …

Finally! I've always thought that The Body Shop should have had a range of chocolate products, and it's great to see they've submitted themselves to the idea. I'm very pleased, to say the least.


This shower gel is very creamy. It's a milky brown color, but the lather itself has no pigment. It's definitely moisturizing. The scent is lovely; It's …

Mascara - The Body Shop - Divide and Multiply Mascara

Apr/21/2012

This is quite expensive at the cost of £11.00, but it's so worth it. It made my lashes super long and defined, and it held curl easily. I had long, noticeable eyelashes throughout the day, so the staying power is awesome. There is no clumping at all, but the formula is surprisingly wet and takes forever to dry. Smearing is very likely, so if that's your biggest mascara pet peeve …Read more

Brows - The Body Shop - Brow and Eyeliner Kit

5.0

Apr/02/2012

The Brow & Liner Kit is a small compact with two different shades of powder. It comes with a double-ended brush to help you fill in your brows and define them. The price is £10.00, which I feel is a bit expensive when you take note of how small the compact is. However, you only use a small amount of product, so it'll definitely last you a while. It comes in three different shades: Blonde …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (All brands)

It's amazing how something so ordinary and common as coconut oil can turn out to be that one thing your body really needs to look beautiful. Seriously, forget all the expensive hair treatments, lip treatments, and exfoliators. I paid $5.99 for 16 ounces worth of product that I can not only eat, but use for multiple beauty needs. Really now, what's better than that?


I …

When I first picked this mascara out at Walgreens, I wasn't expecting much. I'll admit it... I usually don't think highly about Maybelline mascaras. However, this one did end up exceeding my expectations big time.


The mascara itself is $9, so if it fails to meet your standards, at least you can pride yourself in the fact that not too much money was wasted …

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

Mar/28/2012

I tried this product out in Sephora so I could decide on whether or not to buy it in the future. Glad I did, because I don't think this tinted moisturizer is worth all the hype it receives.



I thought because this one wasn't the oil-free version, it would be more moisturizing for my dry skin. Well, that wasn't the case. It felt very rough once applied, kinda …

Self Tanners - Jergens - Natural Glow Firming Moisturizer

3.0

Mar/27/2012

This self tanner claims to reduce the appearance of cellulite in as little as 7 days. The actual tanning aspect starts to become noticeable within the week, but only if you apply the product daily. This is available in two shades for different skin tones: Fair to Medium and Medium to Tan. It's quite inexpensive, being around $10. It was sold at my local Stop & Shop, so that's where …Read more
