    Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil

    Purchased in a try me kit

    I purchased a try me kit at Sephora that included this, the 100% argan oil, and the moisturizer and I am so happy I did!! I have never used a cleansing oil and figured I'd give it a shot. I squirt a little bit in my hand and rubbed it in and applied it to my face and instantly noticed the WONDERFUL smell. I covered my face and neck and as the instructions said, wet my hands and washed my face. I noticed there was hardly any lather, didn't know if that was a good thing or bad thing, but washed my face and dabbed it dry. I felt my face after and noticed it was very soft, and it did take off my makeup and eye makeup with zero stinging to my eyes and no irritation. I will continue to use this oil in the morning to wash my face, and monitor how my skin looks, but so far I give it a 10 because it seems to work at what it claims!

  • bareMinerals SPF 20 Concealer

    bareMinerals SPF 20 Concealer

    Summer bisque is a dream!

    I got this sample in the TryBelieveLove kit at Ulta and loveee it! This concealer is very lightweight, covers my redness without looking like I caked on concealer, and the little concealer brush that comes with it makes it look natural and beautiful. It was very interesting to know this is a concealer as it is a powder, but trying is always the best thing to do, because it is a great concealer!! I dab a little on the mini brush it comes with and lightly brush it on my redness above and below my brows, and my cheeks.

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    Different, but I like different

    I was pretty skeptical purchasing this foundation so I opted for the TryBelieveLove kit for $20 they have at Ulta to give BareMinerals a shot. I am pretty impressed. I have sensitive skin with patches of redness on my cheeks and unexplained redness under and over my eyebrows that never goes away. Using the mini foundation brush that comes in this kit(it is AMAZINGGG) I did as the directions said and swirled, tapped, and buffed the foundation all over my face while checking to see if it made any immediate difference to my redness. The minerals are so soft and light going on, I forgot what I was doing! I saw an immediate improvement in my face and obviously I buffed correctly, because there were no signs of blotchiness or uneven application. I have had it on since 9 am this morning, it is now 4:30 and I have not seen a smudge or difference in my face. This formula is super light weight, feels natural, and I forgot I'm even wearing it. The only reason why I gave it a 9 is because when I was actually purchasing it it was very hard to figure out what color was for me as the box says "Medium tan" and says for medium tan skin tones with undertones of red...What does that mean?? I don't know if I have undertones of red. I took a chance and bought the Medium tan and it worked out, but otherwise, confusing packaging and color ranges!

  • Hello Kitty Hand Held Mirror

    Hello Kitty Hand Held Mirror

    Such a great mirror

    I purchased this mirror through Sephora and am very happy with it. It's just a regular hand held mirror but it's shaped like Hello Kitty which makes me super awesome and adorable. The material is a shiny, silver plastic, but it seems to be holding up just fine. I've had it for 2 years and it's still just like new. Wonderful product!

  • Hello Kitty Liquid Nail Art

    I am OBSESSED with Hello Kitty and was excited to purchased their nail polish brand but was sadly disappointed. They happened to be on sale so I picked up the color called "Banana" and am returning it. The color is a yellow pastel color and looks gorgeous in the bottle but putting it on my fingers it is a super thin formula that takes 3 coats to actually be seen. It took forever for my nails to finally "dry" and when I rubbed them they were STILL wet. It was only $4 but it's not worth that! I have paid less for others and they are awesome. I'm so sad! :/ The only reason I gave this product a 3 is because they are packaged in an adorable Hello Kitty face and I always love her! :]

  • Sephora Nail Polish
    10.0

    Sephora Nail Polish

    Anytime, anywhere is my favorite color everrrr!

    I purchased the one called "Any time, any where" and I am in love. I have to say this is the best color and formula nail polish I have ever purchased. The color is like a metallic silver/gray with an overtone of gold to it. I can't really describe the color but it is sooo beautiful. It looks so beautiful on my tan skin and the color went on smooth and has not chipped. I put it on yesterday and am testing it to see how long it takes before it chips or gets messed up. I love OPI and China Glaze but even paying the price for those is disappointing because I paid $1 for this shade and it's the best thing I've ever used. The brush is a flat, paintbrush type brush that applies an even coat and it dries in seconds. By the time you're done applying it to all of your fingers it's dry and same with your toes. This is my favorite shade, I just wish it wasn't on the clearance section...I think it's discontinued! :[ Love thissss!

  • Lancome Le Sharpener

    Lancome Le Sharpener

    Love my Lancome sharpener

    I love Lancome products and have been purchasing this brand for about 4 years now. This is a great quality sharpener that gives a perfect point to my eyeliners, eyebrow pencils, and lip liners. It is pretty well priced, I believe under $10 and works great. I keep one in my makeup room and one in my makeup bag for on the go emergencies. It's an excellent tool to keep in your cosmetic bag. Love this.

  • Benefit Cosmetics Greetings From Cabana Glama

    I was so excited to buy this kit because it seemed to be a better deal than the other kits that had the exactly same amount of products but this one was only $19. The rest of the kits were $32...I bought 2 :] The consistency of "Some kind of gorgeous" was thick and the medium tone of it was perfect for the dark spots under my eyes and on areas I want to cover up. I blended that with a concealer brush and followed it by contouring under my cheekbones with the "Hoola." This is a great bronzer that looks natural and is great for olive/tan skin tones like mine. I than used the three eyeshadows like the cute little "how to" booklet said and I had a pretty natural eye great for any event or everyday. I was excited to try the Posietint because I've heard awesome things about it. I tapped it on my apples three times and quickly blended it in like the booklet said. Than I applied it to my lips and it created a beautiful pink lip all day. I am in loveeee with Posietint now and as soon as I run out of it am buying a full size :] The little bronzer brush was soft against my cheeks and applied the bronzer fairly well to it. Loveee this kit, definitely worth the price and great if you're new to Benefit cosmetics. I am slowly starting to see why they are such a goodselling brand!!

  • Benefit They're Real! Mascara

    I was excited to buy and try this mascara because I wanted to see if all the hype was really true. For $23 I was going to be mad if it wasn't lol. However, the brush applicator was perfect when I opened it so I knew I would love it. It has a hard combed applicator that separates all my lashes including my hard to get bottom lashes. The formula smells pleasant, the product color is a great natural black, and my lashes are longer, thicker, and clump free! No flakes, no smudge, just beautiful, separated, thick lashes! Very pleased and proud of this mascara. Good job Benefit!

  • Benefit A Little Bit BADgal Lash Mascara

    I was not too pleased with this mascara but to be fair I am extremely picky and high maintenance when choosing mascara. This is a super thick brush which is exactly what I do not like in mascaras. I have very dark, naturally curly lashes and with thick brushes I feel like it does nothing for my lashes and feels uncomfortable going on. Reviewing the formula: I have to say the formula does not have a foul "mascara" smell which is great, it is a beautiful black that looks natural on my lashes, and I loved the fact that I purchased this in the "Ulta"mate sexy six pack from Ulta where you can try 6 of Benefits best selling products. I have purchased and love the "They're real" mascara from Benefit so going from that to this mascara would make anyone not be pleased. I'll stick with the other mascara.
