    Smashbox Cream Eye Liner

    I love this Liner!!

    Cream EyeLiner in Caviar. First of all, this does not last a verrrrrrrrrryyy long while (if used without a primer) and it is smudge able even after its been worn for a while but that said I still love it because it glides on smoothly and it is easier to play with if you are trying different looks. I have not set it with a powder so I don't know if that works. AS for me I give it full stars because it easily glides on and easier to handle.

  • DHC Velvet Skin Coat
    10.0

    DHC Velvet Skin Coat

    Good primer

    I have to say that this product lives up to its name. the texture is velvet smooth and I was able to cover my skin well, and the make up easy to apply afterwards. I used it first time for our pictures at sears and my skin looks flawless, and that is not the case in real life. I have some acne scars, and open pores that show up and oily t-zone. but it covered those bases. I was happy with the results. My Tip. Cleanse + exploliate moisturize prime

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    Maybelline New York Great Lash in clear

    I have been using the Great Lash clear mascara for as long as i can remember it and i recently got my SIL hooked as well. I think this is perfect for day wear, because it defines the lashes and the clear formula gives a sheen as well. I don't see a "lenthening" effect but that is not why i bought it. I have slightly curled lashes, they are a little long so I mostly want to emphasize them. I use this under the black mascara i use in the evenings. here is my tip if you want to use try : I brush and separate my lashes before applying mascara and wipe of excess product off the brush because i find that excess product is what clumps the lashes. then I apply one coat on the top lash. For evenings I apply a coat, wait for it to dry then follow up with a black mascara, wait for it to dry and then just slightly run the brush to give my lashes a sheen. Viola!!!

  • Maybelline New York Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

    I purchased the maybeline eyestudio gel eyeliner in eggplant and only because i love purple and colors dress up the eye without trying too much. so the product packaging is good (i like the small vat the gel comes in) and the brush is good quality. the product it self is ok, it didn't go as smooth on my eyelid as i expected it to but it was gliding better than a pencil. I love the color but it didn't show as vivid on my eye because my lids are darker, but nevertheless, I like the product and the price is ok, and I am a bargain hunter so if you can use coupons with buy one get 1 50% deal at drug stores that is even better. PS -- the brush is so compact and I love it so much that i use it for another one of my gel liners

  • L'Oreal Paris Go 360 Clean

    I bought this scrub+scrublet combo a few months back thinking it will help cleanse my skin and remove dead skin and gunk off my face. I was wrong the product did not work well with my skin at all. it did not remove any dead skin or gunk and the condition of my face did not improve. The cleaner/face wash itself is not a good product, I did not like the formula (i used orange bottle), I didnot finish the bottle threw it away but kept the scrublet, which is use once a week with the replacement cleanser I am using. The only reason I am giving it one star is because I can't give it any less and plus I like the scrublet.

  • Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour

    Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour

    Best Polishes in term of Colors

    Chanel has the best colors and i desperately wait every season for them to unveil there new colors. How ever they are pricey. My favorites are particulere and Paradoxical. I am still using the Particuilere. Thought I will not spend that on polish again but if you have the moolah then go ahead but budget friendly suggestion is that Sephora by OPI and other budget friendly brands have a lot of colors that you can match with Chanel's on trend colors.

  • CoverGirl SmokyShadowBlast

    CoverGirl SmokyShadowBlast

    Great Idea, Poor Execution!

    I got the Smoky Shadow Blast in silver sky. On to packaging. it is very nice and seemed like a good product. I tried it on the first time after may be two hours i saw lines but the second time i used it with a primer the shadow lasted a little longer. The second time is also when step two point broke. I still used it with with my fingers because i liked the colors. I have been using the colors separately because i didn't really see the smoky eye effect that thought it would give. individually these are pretty colors but they do not give the smoky eye effect. Price point is average $8-$9 but since it broke so easily i dont know if i would want to spend tht much on on these stick again. All in all a Great Idea but poor execution.

  • Aveda Hand Relief

    Aveda Hand Relief

    A splurge!!

    I got this cream from the Aveda Salon in my area. I have to say this is worth the price and though i dont buy it alot my tube goes a while I also have a sample tube that i kepe in my bag. Now, the texture of the cream is thick but it just sinks into your skin, you dont have to use globs of it, pea sized amount is what i use to rub on my hands. it did provide relief to my dry hands and cuticles. I also like the smell, to me it smells like some kind of spice ... clove and cardamom, sort of but it just felt really good. a definite splurge and the price is why i am not gviving it full stars but if you want to try it out Aveda does specials where you can avail a sample tube, so check with the salon in your area.

  • Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser

    I had been using this product for a while, i switched between 3 brands. i find that this is perfect for the hot and humid weather we have during summer months, however i dont use it during winter as my skin gets dry. it is a good daily cleanser but does not really do anythin for pimples or blemishes at least for my skin. I does however works for my sisterinlaw's skin, her skin is more oily and acne prone and she feels that it works for her, she is in a very hot climate and it is mostly hot/humid so it works great for her. i used it as a daily cleanser during summer/hot months and use a gentler cleanser for winter. i would recommend it for daily use during summer.
