Treatments - ZOYA - Hurry Up

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/20/2009

I don't think these are anything special, but they did do what they said they would. They dried my nails quickly, but I was still able to get dings, as it only dries the top super quickly. However, my Seche Vite it the same way.

I wouldn't buy this separately, but I like Zoya's Color lock system and these come with it, so I would repurchase, especially since Zoya has …

Palettes - MAC Cosmetics - Velvet 6 Smoked Eyes Holiday 2006 Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/21/2008

This is my favorite palette from MAC. I can do so many different looks with it, even some nice day looks. Usually palettes have some colors that don't work for me or throw in one or two lustres that I really dislike.

I know that smoking out the eye is easy, but this makes it a breeze. I threw this in my travel bag to do holiday eyes this year!

Lips - Burt's Bees - Fig Lip Shimmer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/17/2008

My boyfriend bought me this because he thought it would be a nice cranberry shade on me.

My lips aren't particularly pigmented, but this went on really dark for me. A lot of people reviewed this saying it's a MLBB shade, but I don't agree. Or, it wasn't for me at least. It went on dark, leaving my lips a red/brown color, making me look a lot older than I …

Lotions/ Creams - Burt's Bees - Body Lotion with Milk & Honey

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/17/2008

Got this in a kit.

I really like this lotion. Milk & Honey is my favorite scent, so I love this. It's a little strong, but I'd rather that than something that doesn't smell at all.

The lotion is a little runny, but I can deal with it because it absorbs really quickly. It is great to use on the go because mine is a travel size and I don't have to …

This review is for the Xelle Silk-Epil epilator. I bought this on amazon when I lost my Emjoi epilator. I was kind of miffed at forking over 60 bucks for this thing (20% off on black friday), but ever since I got it, I am so glad I lost my Emjoi.

I tested this out on my arms. I have blonde hair on my arms, which I don't need to get rid of, but I just prefer it to be gone. I …

Eyeliner - Jane Cosmetics - Be Pure Mineral Gel Eyeliner

4.0

Oct/04/2008

I've heard all the hype about this product and when RiteAid had a BOGOF for Jane products, I picked it up in Brown and Navy. (the only two colors that were left.)

They are both packaged well. They come in glass jars with a metal lid and include a brush. The bristles are very soft, but my brown one came with a brush that had uneven bristles on the very end, so check them before …

Lip Treatments - NIVEA - A Kiss of Moisture

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/27/2008

My lips have been incredibly chapped lately. Not cracking, but just dry and they needed some moisture. I actually saw an ad for this on television for this and remembered it when I was at Target, looking for a new lipbalm. For under 3 bucks it was worth a try. That and my mom swears by a Nivea cream she has, saying that if it's good in the german cold weather, it must be god for …Read more

Lip Treatments - Neutrogena - Lip Nutrition - Vanilla Replenish Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/26/2008

There are a lot of negative reviews for this product and I can understand why. The consistency isn't the best -- it's kind of waxy and thick. It tastes pretty awful.

But I use it overnight and it has helped with my lips. When the winter changes I get chapped lips, they're not cracked or peeling, but the feel of them changes, they almost feel rough. And a lot of …
