Julie A.'s (anneacacia) Beauty Product Reviews
This perfume is beautiful. I'm not very good with describing scents so I won't. Instead, I'll tell you all how this scent makes me feel, sophisticated and young. This perfume is a great transition scent from adolescence to adulthood. It's light and airy but still has a punch. I love wearing this during day and night. It is floraly sweet, but not headache inducing. It's an expensive perfume, so I suggest getting a sample before coughing up the moolah, just to make sure your body chemistry works well with the scent.
This foundation is fool proof. It is so easy to blend and it looks flawless on my skin. The MUFE gives an airbrushed finish and when topped off with HD microfinish powder it is a dream. This formula does not feel heavy or cakey on my skin, it is light but still manages to have great coverage. It's an expensive foundation but worth every penny.
I have 14 out of 25 (I believe) of these lip sticks and the only thing I do not like about them is the packaging. Granted, some of the shades do not suit my skintone, but that's not the lippy's fault. I love the formula, it can be a bit drying, but with a moisturizer underneath it does fine. It is very long lasting and they have a great variety of colors. On top of all that, they're amazingly cheap! I'm willing to purchase all the shades -- even if they don't suit me -- because I love them so much.
Long straight normal texture; easily tangled
This product is amazing! The consistency of this product is thinner than most leave-in creams I've had. Many leave-in creams are too thick and seem to weigh down my hair but not this one, this product leaves my hair silky smooth, soft and very manageable. The best part about this product is that it protects the hair from UV rays, it's sunscreen for my hair. I use this before I leave the house to ensure that like my skin, my hair is protected from the sun. It also smells amazing.
People have raved about this product and I'm not sure whether my lips are defected or everyone else is just falling into an insincere hype. Well either way, this product did not work for me. I feel like it's just sitting on my lip instead of being "absorbed". It has a slippery consistency and I find myself having to wipe the product off. It leaves a layer of film over my lips and this is -- what I'm guessing-- the moisturizing factor. This film is not at all moisturizing, I find that it's quite drying. Instead of protecting my lips it dries it out and this is why I have to keep reapplying the product. If I don't reapply promptly my lips will become extremely chapped and actually start to peel. I do not recommend this product and I will never venture out of my Burt's Bees Lip Balm again.
I really wanted to like this product because I think that eyeliner pens and pencils are much easier to apply than wands and brushes. Unfortunately this product was a total miss :(. This product isn't pigmented at all, the black comes off as a very light gray. It's also not a build-able product, when I try to layer it on the product seems to "slip off" or just rub off all together. I won't be repurchasing this.
I have a lot of F21 L & B polishes and I have to say for the price they are awesome! The colors are a hit or miss, but mostly hit. I've come across some colors that were just too sheer, but for the most part these are great quality polishes, and for the price of $2.80 it won't make a dent on your wallet.
My boyfriend has a lot of influence in my choice of perfumes, considering we spend most of our time together. He picked this out for me and I absolutely adore this perfume! I find it to be very soft and sophisticated. I find that this perfume evolves throughout the day, which is a great thing. It is never overpowering, it's a great spring/summer scent because of its light and airy character.
I suggest to test out this perfume before you buy it because it is pricey. Its staying power isn't too long either. This is why I gave it four stars instead off 5. Overall this is a great scent for an evening out.
LOVE! I use this twice a week and it leaves my hair soft and manageable. My hair tangles quite easily but I find that this deep conditioner has repaired a lot of damage and it keeps my hair from knotting up. It's a bit pricey but it's worth every penny.
Update: I've been for almost 6 months now, and I think my hair has plateau-ed. It does nothing for my hair, it's as dry as ever. I've switched to the Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask
