BB Cream - Maybelline New York - Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Cream

I was so excited to try this BB cream, but found it pretty underwhelming. I found it to be a very light and pretty average tinted moisturizer. The pros are that it's not at all heavy, and went on fresh and smooth. The cons were that it provided very minimal coverage and the color variety was not as good as other Maybelline products.

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Exact Eyelights Eye-Brightening Mascara - Black Pearl

Dec/10/2011

This was a fairly average mascara, and certainly did not live up to the advertising hype. I didn't notice any effect for highlighting my eye color. To me, this mascara was very similar to other waterproof black mascaras (I got the waterproof version), such as the infamous Maybelline Great Lash. It gives the same spikey look that's not particularly lengthening or thickening compared to …Read more

Horrifyingly bad. What possessed me to buy this stuff was that I remembered using it as a teenager at summer camp. I don't remember it being spectacular, but I think I bought it out of a sense of nostalgia more than anything. What I liked about this stuff:
- cheap
- no complaints about the packaging, just a tub with a cap
- does a decent job of cleaning
What I did not …

Liquid - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

This is my HG foundation. I stopped using it for a few years in hopes of finding something cheaper, and failed miserably. Nothing else works as well for my super oily skin, and no other color matches me better than 60. (I think in MAC, I'm roughly an NC35-45, but who knows because I've never been able to get a good match with MAC). I discovered this liquid foundation when I went into …Read more

Concealers - Coastal Scents - Eclipse

I purchased this palette back during the Black Friday sale on 30% off. The regular price is $14.95. This is *just* the concealer palette I was looking for. I was tired with messing around with all those little pots of concealer to get the shade I wanted. I like the Eclipse palette because, well, it's a palette. You open one container, and everything you need is laid right out there for you …Read more

I really like this color lately. It's a pretty sheer neutral shade that complements my NC35 skin tone, and shimmers champagne-silver. I like it because it's not too flashy for work. Other reviewers have said this and I completely agree that it's very sheer and you'll need to do several layers to get color payoff. To me, one layer doesn't do much. I like 3 layers of this …Read more

Eye Shadow - Femme Couture - Quad Eye Shadow in Berry Pinks

Aug/01/2010

This is a totally average product. I bought it on a whim at Sallys the other day. I think it was about $10. The colors are pretty, but the quality is inconsistent. Each color in the quad turns up an entirely different consistency almost like they came from different manufacturers. The colors are pretty, and match in the pan, but it seems like the undertones on the colors didn't match when I …Read more

This is my HG eyeliner. I have bought this liner time after time and haven't found anything better. My friends call me the queen of eyeliner because I wear it all the time, every day, and I layer it on. This one is my favorite because it smudges just the right amount to get a perfect smoky eye, but at the same time, it doesn't end up all over your face or smudge throughout the day …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Bath & Body Works - Sea Island Cotton shower gel

Aug/01/2010

This is my favorite BBW scent right now. It reminds me a lot of the old Cotton Blossom scent, which I also loved. Sea Island Cotton is fresher and cleaner smelling than Cotton Blossom though. I have this in the body wash, and as wall flowers and just think they're both fantastic. (I also use it on my dogs sometimes too, and they smell wonderful also.) Out of all my body products, this is the …Read more

I'm with the last reviewer - I hate this scent. It's very very spicy, almost cinnamon and nutmeg-y and smells very unpleasant to my nose. I used it for a while to see if I'd get accustomed to it, and I did not. I tried to pawn it off on my husband, but he refused to use it. I even tried to use it on my dogs as dog shampoo and I hated the way it smelled on them too. So, I hate to …Read more
