Fragrances - Stella McCartney - Stella- Eau de Parfum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/07/2009

I am dearly hoping to get a full sized bottle of this! It's easily my new favorite perfume, for several reasons. A friend of mine has been telling me for the past two years to try Stella, because roses are my favorite floral scent. However, every modern "rose" fragrance I've ever tried has been heavy, synthetic smelling and, well, brash.

I can appreciate a …

Toners - Boscia - balancing facial tonic

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/06/2009

I don't know that this is a miracle product, but it's pretty excellent. I find that it calms the skin very well, even if it doesn't clean like a normal toner might. That's not really the point of it though. It does make my skin tone more even if I use it daily, and lavender water is great for that.

Cleansers - KORRES Natural Products - 3-in-1 Milk Proteins Emulsion

4.0

Sep/06/2009

Generally, I like this cleanser a lot. My skin used to be incredibly acne-prone, until I went on Accutane in high school, and ever since then it's been normal. A little dry and sometimes slightly blotchy, but other than that normal. However, I've found that most cleansers are just irritating and too drying, even if they are for "normal" skin.

Since I'm paranoid …

Eyeliner - Mary Kay - Steely

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/06/2009

Best eyeliner ever, usurping the MAC eye kohl for me.

I got this for free from a suite mate who sells Mary Kay, and I'm going to repurchase when I run out. Steely is an amazing color and the liner itself has an excellent staying power that I've never experienced. Granted, I've not tried everything on the market because I simply can't afford to, but Steely is …

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Lipglass - Love Child

Sep/06/2009

I love Lovechild! I am so excited- my aunt, who is a makeup artist and has been since like before I was born- just got like three of them and passed one on to me. I'm assuming one is for her and one is for her kit.

This was the first MAC lip gloss I ever tried, way back at the tender age of fifteen. It looks intimidating in the tube, rather like a shade no one could wear, but on …

Lotions/ Creams - Jergens - Naturals Soothe Daily Moisturizer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/06/2009

Now, this whole line of lotions really makes me happy! HG all the way for the two I've tried! This summer I finished out a whole bottle of the "Refresh" on my own because I would use it after every shower (and I shower every other day) and then a few times a day on my hands. I liked Refresh, but when I went to Target a week or so ago to buy a new bottle I saw that they were all …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Smolder eye kohl

Aug/23/2009

Sadly, I don't own Smolder right this second. It's quite unfortunate! I loved it when I had it (about a year and a half ago) and just haven't had the money to repurchase. (Yay for college sucking up all my money.)
This is the BEST eyeliner I have ever used. Period. It has its drawbacks, one of which being the smudge factor- this is both its blessing and its curse. But, when it …

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/23/2009

And, ironically, the thing I thought this pencil was best for was... smudging. Seriously! The UD people are all adamant about the fact that you can be very precise with these eyeliners, but that never worked for me. Now, personally I didn't have a problem with realizing this because I don't mind a smoked-out Bohemian finish. However, in my opinion, the 24/7 pencils are just TOO creamy …Read more

Eyeliner - Sephora Collection - Liquid Eyeliner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/23/2009

This liquid eyeliner really surprised me. Not because of the brand, or anything like that- it's just that I'm completely impaired when it comes to using liquid anything, barring lip gloss. I have it in black, and it is extremely easy to apply! I prefer a thin, subtle line, and I can easily achieve it with the type of brush Sephora uses for their liquid eyeliners' packaging …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize - Odd Bits Quad

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/23/2009

Odd Bits is so lovely! I liked the name of it, as well- so British and random. The sparkly golden peach is easily the color I use the most, but all four are equally gorgeous. The burgundy tends to wash me out a bit, so I use it sparingly as an accent color. I actually like the fact that the finish in this quad tends to run on the sheerer side, but if that's an issue you can always wet your …Read more
