    Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

    Primrose is my fave!

    I bought this lipstick in the color Primrose a few months ago and am almost onto my second tube. While I love the color and pigmentation, the staying power isn't amazing. Even though I have to reapply it probably every hour, that's what you get for drugstore brands, and I'm cool with that. I have a lot of Mac lipsticks, which obviously have better staying power, but I still find myself choosing to wear this drugstore brand over the higher end stuff. Primrose is so pretty with a clear or light pink gloss over it, I like UD's Peroxide. Definitely worth trying if you want an inexpensive, pretty lipstick.

    Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

    Bad Packaging for product

    I got these as a bday gift fom Sephora (THANKS SEPHORA!!) but unfortunately, I'm glad I didn't buy this myself. I really like the way it feels on my lips. However, the packaging RUINS it. I dislike it because it is wayyy to creamy to be in stick form. The product mushes together every time I try and apply it. The product should come in a dish/pot type thing with it's liquid-feeling consistancy. I don't get to enjoy it because it smears every time I try to use it. I will stick to my eos lip balm.

  • Sedu Revolution Pro Tourmaline Ionic 4000i Hair Dryer

    This is my first high end blow dryer, and I purchased it myself. I have long, thick, wavy hair and have been used to about 20 minutes of dry time with my usual conair dryer (or whatever other wal mart options were available). I did LOTS of research on which blow dryer to drop such a pretty penny on and decided on the Sedu. I couldn't be happier! I now have about 5-7 minutes of dry time, which has been so convenient. Okay - now for the nitty gritty. It's a powerful air flow, but not overwhelming like I had heard from other reviews. I had also heard that it was pretty heavy, but I have found it to weigh just as much as my old blow dryers, it's just smaller. Which brings me to my next point - it's smaller than I thought but the handle is a perfect size so it doesn't make a difference to me. I initially thought the small size would mean less powerful, and that is definitely not the case. The only negative thing I have to say is that the metal air filter on the back (the part that sucks your hair in if you're not careful) is apparently really flimsy because it broke in the first week I had it. While this was a huge bummer, I've been glad that it hasn't affected the peformance of the blow dryer, and it still works just as well. I've had this blow dryer for about 6 months now and it's still working great. The most impressive aspect of this blow dryer is how AWESOME my hair looks afterwards. It seriously looks like a salon blow out. Sleek, shiny, voluminous, and it doesn't get frizzy afterwards from lingering dampness (because there is no lingering dampness!). I LOVE not having to style my hair after drying if I'm in a hurry, and I'll still have an awesome hair day. I would recommend to any one looking to invest in a great blow dryer who would like to reduce their drying time and improve the appearance of their hair.

  • Benefit Erase Paste

    So I tried Benefit's Boi-ing and liked it but heard that Erase Paste was an even better concealer, so I ran out to buy it. Unfortunately... it didn't live up to any of the hype for me. I find that it is thick (which is fine) but no pay off. If tends to rub right into my skin and instead of actually covering anything, my skin just creases. I'm a BIG beleiver that sometimes it's not the products fault - but the user. Sooo.... I've tried applying just a tiny bit to a fuller amount. I've applied with my fingers and a brush. I've tried patting it on and rubbing in a bit more. Nothing seems to help, it's always the same stinky creasy result with little coverage. Wish I could get my money back!

    M.A.C. Lipstick

    Can't Go Wrong!

    Love these! I get so excited to "research" a new color and treat myself to one every once in a while. These are moisturizing, long lasting, pigmented, blendable, buildable, and all that good stuff. And lets be serious, it's freaking Mac. They have lots of colors to choose from, two favorites of mine are VivaGlamGaga2 and Snob. Makeup lovers - save up and at least purchase one, you will fall in love.

  • Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

    I know there are lots of good reviews on the colorburst line, but I have to be honest - I prefer the classic Revlon line to these. These are like those annoying pigmented chapsticks that get all over the place and you just end up wiping off. I get what Revlon was going for, but not only are the pigments not very true or strong, but they will fade off as soon as your done applying. If what you are looking for is tinted chapstick, go for it. But these aren't lipstick.

  • Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lip Gloss

    I have this in Peroxide (light baby pink) and absolutely love it. The packaging is perfect because it's a squeezey tube so you can choose how much product you use (I dislike the ones with the sponge applicators, I feel like I'm fishing for something I shouldn't fish for because I paid for it!). The gloss is shiney and pigmented, perfect for layering on top of lipstick or wearing alone. It's not sticky and I've never had such a long lasting gloss - I'd say I can go two hours without reapplying, which is a long time for me because I'm always talking and drinking water at work. Definitely worth the price tag, I just bought Midnight Cowboy (a shimmery nude) for when Peroxide runs out. I will definitely repurchase Peroxide because it is the perfect clear gloss for over lipstick or the perfect light pink for wearing alone.

    Benefit Boi-ing

    Good product, but not HG

    I'm halfway through my Boi-ing and like it a lot. It's my first higher end concealer, so I will probably purchase something else after just to see what else is out there. It does do a good job of hiding under eye circles, but you have to set it with lots of powder or it wont last more than a few hours. Another thing is that while it gives good coverage, it doesn't give full coverage which is my personal preference. I wouldn't normally use that as a 'con,' but I feel like concealer is there to provide full coverage and CONCEAL, so I'd like it if Boi-ing delivered a bit more on that .I find that it doesn't do anything to hid actual blemishes, but that's fine with me since I only bought it for undereyes anyway. I like it, not amazed, but definitely not disappointed.
