Lipstick - wet n wild - MegaLast Lip Color

BETTER THAN ANY HIGH END MATTE LIPSTICK I HAVE TRIED!!! Highly pigmented, cheap, and fades nicely. It does come off when eating/drinking, but like I said it comes off rather evenly so it doesn't look ridiculous. Reapplying isn't an issue either because it's so cheap.
I have just two issues: the shape and the packaging. The shape of the lipstick is very blocky (not slanted …

HG perfume for cold weather! I am always trying new scents and this one has me hooked. It's very spicy at first...to me it gives off an "multicultural" impression, i.e. the opening notes are not common where I'm from. Definitely makes it into a head-turner! It is a very unique opening. However the dry-down reminds me of Kenzo's Amour though a bit heavier and less sweet …Read more

For the matte ones:
LOVE this product. Lasts for ages, very very slight rub-off when eating or drinking but it's hardly noticeable if at all. I bought 01- Always Red and it's certainly matte! Definitely what comes to mind when I think of a Snow White-esque red, not shiny or sticky but doesn't look horribly dry either. Looks great with pale skin and the wand is like a typical …

Lip Treatments - NIVEA - A Kiss of Flavor Cherry

Didn't taste good at all, and definitely artificial cherry smell. :/ Also it is a bit sparkly out of the tube and I didn't like that. Moisturized for a while, more than other lip balms, but I'm disappointed by the sunscreen-ish feeling and "cherry" scent. Returning ASAP. I prefer Cherry Me Baby Lips!

Fragrances - Issey Miyake - L'Eau d'Issey

*for original, not Florale* Smells refreshing at first, as others have noted. It plays with "aquatic" and floral/slightly sweet scents at first in a unique way that makes you wonder how it's going to develop. To me it smelled very different than the other scents in the Sephora rollerball collection that I tried. However I found it to settle into a very soapy smell, EXACTLY like …Read more

Reminds me of a more feminine, higher end version of B&BW's Country Chic. It is light and, as others have said, reminiscent of freshly cut grass and fruit at first. It is definitely a spring scent! The dry down is less grassy, and more of a simple warm musk (slightly powdery, but I think that's only on my skin in particular). It's definitely worth a try; it's not very …Read more

Fragrances - Betsey Johnson - Betsey Johnson Too Too

Sep/23/2012

Cute package...that's the only redeeming quality. This has barely any lasting power, and what lasts is a powdery floral scent- not the sophisticated kind of say, Chloe, but just a strange one. Out of the bottle it smells okay, it packs a punch of many different scents that seem to flow well enough but they disappear quickly and turn chalk-like. Definitely wouldn't recommend for my age …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Lady Gaga - Fame

The second I sprayed this, I was overcome with SO many notes that I couldn't even catch them. To me it smelled powerful, rather masculine... definitely something that embodies Gaga but I could never, ever wear this. It's very unique...maybe not in the best way. Words aren't adequate for this, I'd definitely suggest smelling it yourself.

Eyeliner - wet n wild - Mega Liner - Black

Sep/10/2012

Just bought it yesterday and I am so impressed. This is my first liquid eyeliner, plus I don't have a steady hand, so I was worried that I would mess up but the brush is so thin that it is easy to correct any mistakes. A must have for anyone new to liquid eyeliner! However, my eyes have been slightly itchy since I put it on. Hopefully that will change because I love this product!!!

Picked this up at Walgreens for $3. Definitely a pleasant surprise! For the price, it's great.

Pros:
-cheap
-works well when paired with a mascara that separates lashes (I use Falsies Flared)
-doesn't irritate sensitive eyes/contacts
-creates dramatic lashes (especially when paired with another mascara)

Cons:
-hard to wash off completely …
