Wow! This has been the best volumizing mascara I've tried so far. I guess I will see for sure in a few days when my engagement pictures arrive. I applied 3 coats for the pictures and I felt like I had beautiful long and thick lashes. One coat doesn't do too much, but 2 coats and you start to see the volume. And 3 coats, your lashes might start clumping together, but I just wiggle the …Read more

Definitely a cakey product. I felt like I was wearing a mask. The coverage seemed very heavy for what I need. The bottle is cute and you only need a tiny amount, but none of the colors were for me. I had a 7 and it still seemed too light when applied. I had to use bronzer over it. Good thing I could return it to Sephora and get a full refund. On to the next foundation!

I love this color! My sister said it looks great with my skin tone. I live by the beach so I'm pretty tan and I must say, the color does really pop and complement my skin. She came to visit me for a week and was wearing the Laced Up version of the Salon Effects. We were at the beach every day for a week straight and her nails still looked perfect before she left. Now I'll be using these …Read more

HG lip gloss. I only wear gloss or balm on my lips, but I MUST have some on at all times. The taste and smell of this product is phenomenal if you like lemons. I only switch to C.O tinted mentha lip glosses if I want a bit of color to go out. I have about 3 tubes of this for my car, purse, and work, and also a couple tubes of the lemon lip balm on my nightstand and makeup bag. I will always have …Read more

Lips - C.O. Bigelow - Lemon Lip Balm

LOVE the taste and smell of this product. Those are the only things I look for in lip products. I absolutely love lemon scented products and the fact that is tastes just as good makes it my HG lip product. It's lightweight, sheer, and soft. The only cons are that the stick of balm does eventually lean or break b/c it's so soft, but I don't care b/c it's a great product! A …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Unlisted Brand - Target - Up & Up Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

Aug/22/2012

I usually always choose the up&up brand if it's available in place of something I already use. I am never disappointed. I like the smell of these wipes and they leave my skin silky smooth afterwards. It takes awhile to remove my eye makeup, though and I still have to use my eye makeup remover for my mascara b/c the wipes aren't very effective on it. I just discovered the Equate …Read more

Aug/22/2012

As with a lot of the items I try, I used my sister's and fell in love with it so bought my own. First off, I like the smell of this cleanser. It's kind of a sweet fruity smell. Second, I like how the pump locks. At first, I was pissed b/c I could not figure out how to unlock it and had to google it. There's a small ring at the base of the pump that has to be held in place while you …Read more

May/20/2012

I did careful research before buying this product. I read over the instructions given on these reviews twice before trying it. I have only done my underams so far, but I am amazed!

I bought the Brazilian kit and used all the products in it as directed. I applied the wax and let it cool for about 5-10 seconds. Then I grabbed an edge, held my skin taut and pulled it down quickly, I was …

Misc Beauty Tools - Gillette - Venus Breeze

Meh. I was using the Mach 3, but I have the dark armpit syndrome so I thought that razor was being too harsh on my skin. I switched to a lady razor that I kept hearing raves about. It's nice, but it's not a very close shave. When I was using Mach 3, I could get away with shaving maybe every 2-3 days. But with the Venus Breeze, I never feel completely hairless. Especially under my arms …Read more

I friggin' love the pump on this thing. It's not only sanitary, but it's so cute and it locks. I first used my sister's Neutrogena for combination skin when I slept over and I loved it. I like to protect with spf, though so I bought this one. I must say the only drawback is the smell. I really don't like the smell of spf moisturizers. And most of the time the spf part …Read more
