I normally always wear lip gloss only, and I have dry lips when I don't. I'm extremely picky about lipsticks and glosses.
I felt like trying some colorful lipstick but didn't want to spend a lot of money on it because I usually end up not using it. So, I saw this ultra moist lipstick at CVS for $0.99, and bought a tube in Violet Shine. I put it on when I got to my car and was …

Pros: Goes on very smoothly, a tiny bit goes a long way, the color blends perfectly, it covers well, it lasts very long, it give my skin a beautiful glowyness.
Cons: Not many! The only thing I can think of if that my nose gets a little shiney after a few hours, but I have oily skin and that happens with any make-up.

I got this as a lighter substitute for foudation on beach days or work days when I'm in a hurry. I like that it's SPF 30. The coverage is enough for me, but I find I have to use powder and touch up throughout the day or my face is really oily. I think next time I'll go with dry touch sun block and mineral makeup.

I like this mascara. It gives me the fullness that full n soft doesn't, but it's still soft and it performed fairly well in the FL heat. Even though I wasn't using a waterproof formula, it didn't smudge when I wore it out and didn't get to bed until 4am.

I was amazed by this product. I love painting my nails, but I'm an impatient girl, so they never dry correctly before I'm off to something else. I usually end up with smudges and sheet marks. But this TC actually did what it claimed to do. I have only used it twice so far, but I will be using it for as long as they make it. Both times, I used it over very bright, cheap nail polish (pure …Read more

Jul/04/2012

After trying three disappointing waterproof mascaras that gave me raccoon eyes without even getting in water, I tried this based on reviews. I'm pleased with it so far. I've only worn it twice so far, but I'm liking the softness and that you absolutely cannot mess it up putting it on. It does not clump or smudge. I wore it to the beach yesterday then dried off and changed and went …Read more

Jul/02/2012

I used this in Miss Independent (a plum color) and Fishnet (pink). The color is almost imperceptible, so these are not good if you want a lipstick replacement.I normally only use lip gloss so I like these because I don't like a lot of color on my lips. The packaging is very cute and the balm feels really good. These are a great option for me when I want to use something moisturizing and …Read more

Seriously? They are discontinuing dark brown and I just found this today? That really sucks for me. I have black hair and dark eyebrows and I really love this brow product. I really like a brow pencil that I don't have to sharpen. I also liked Almay's brow pencil but I like the waxy consistency of this better. And the dark brown color is perfect for me. I will be searching for any …Read more

Lip Gloss - Hard Candy - Glossaholic - Sequin Saturated Shine Lip Gloss in Chill Out

I bought this lip gloss in Gorgeous. I felt that the product name, glossaholic, describes me perfectly. I do not wear lipstick ever, just gloss, and I apply it constantly. I always have at least 5 glosses in my purse. It's a sickness. Anyway, I really love this lip gloss. It looks super sparkly in the tube, but much more subtle once it's on. I love the flavor, vanilla. It's thick …Read more

I've been using this for about a week. I like it a lot so far. The pump is great. It goes on smoothly and quickly. This product does not come in very many shade options. It has yellow undertones, and while it doesn't match my skin exactly, it looks natural. It does not get oily looking, it doesn't turn orange later in the day. And to me the most amazing thing is that it stays on …Read more
