I had seen these at local stores for around $10, I was lucky enough to receive in a swap on MUA. At first by site I thought some of the brushes would be too big, but in reality they are perfect. They are labeled for the newbie who might not be sure what brush is for what, but are the perfect size in your hand. Each brush is so soft and easy to use, application is a cinch. I had no shedding from …Read more

Palettes - Kat Von D - Ludwig Palette [DISCONTINUED]

I originally got this as my first Kat Von D palette. I got it for free (swapped) on MUA. I am highly impressed! The colors are not only stunning but HIGHLY pigmented. Even my friend swatched them and fell in love. There are enough colors to do a variety of styles on your eyes and even use as liner. I find them to be more pigmented than MAC and pretty equal to Urban Decay, which is my favorite …Read more

Cleansers - Bioré - Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser

Mar/30/2011

I am a fan of this product! I bought it for about $6 at Walmart, only because I had a coupon that if I bought pack of my blackhead strips I got a cleanser free. I chose those one. The first time I tried it I was not 100% sure but I perfected it to work how I like. The warming does not keep occurring so now I put a bit on my left hand finger tips, then split it with right hand and apply one hand …Read more

Eye Shadow - Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner Pop Collection - Green Eyes

So after two weeks of debating on buying this I went into CVS when they had 40% off, I had $4.00 in register rewards so it cost me $2 and some change out of pocket. I thought I would like the brush more than I did, but I did not buy it for the brush. I got the green even though I have blue eyes. As stated by another reviewer, the blue pop collection is a big ugly. The colors here are vibrant and …Read more

I actually have to disagree with some other reviews. I may change my mind down the line but I have been using this brush the past few days. I scored it locally for $1 of course and needed a bigger brush than my make 109 for my finishing powder. Something with more fluff but not as compacted as a kabuki. I fell in love. I actually like the cheap plastic sleeve I can store it in once done to keep …Read more

Mascara - RIMMEL - Lash Accelerator Mascara

Mar/10/2011

I had only tried one other Rimmel mascara in my life and loved it, but I was still skeptical to try this. I had a $2 off Rimmel coupon so I caved. It cost me $5 since it was priced at $7 at Wal-mart. At first glance I was not excited because the brush was not curved at all (Which I knew was going to cause me grief on my bottom lashes). It wasn't as bad as I thought. I loved the way it …Read more

THIS IS FOR THE SCRUB:

I am in love with the exfoliant scrub! Hands down. I have never had any type of scrub product from BBW. I love Mango (To drink and eat) and usually for candles, this is a first washing with it. Granted there is ONE downfall: In the shower when opening the flip bottom lid...it of course does not later up like gel so you need to go back for more, a pump version …

I love MAC to the ends of the earth. I was not pleased with this item. Costs around $15 online or in stores. The pigment is not deep as you would hope. My brushes seem to struggle to pick it up and it takes a lot of packing it on to even show nicely on my fair skin. I prefer the Urban Decay Acid Rain to this (Similar shade but goes on amazing). It might work better for some if used wet, but …Read more

Mar/10/2011

I love this product! I started using it in 2007, it costs about $7-$10 depending on location. The smell is not so great if you are about to head out and it is something you most certainly do not want to share with anyone else (It has a roller ball to apply). It is not good for open wounds (zits ect) and you will know as soon as you apply it if your wound or zit was open as it will sting and burn …Read more

Mar/10/2011

After seeing many discussions on the message board about the ladies getting Happy Booster I deceided to try it. I got it at CVS for $13.99 but did get $7 in rewards bucks back. From the moment I opened it, I was in love with the smell. It is a soft violet. Very clean. The packaging is nice, the brush is very cheap and not so useful (at first!). I found that the best way to apply it was to use my …Read more
