Joanna M.'s (pusongtamis) Beauty Product Reviews
First off, I'm a huge fan of palettes. I think buying individual eyeshadows is just so impractical, which is one of the reasons I bought this one! The other reasons being the hype and the great packaging! I love the colors [although I've been mostly using the lighter colors]. The pigments are great and even the brush is pretty good! [Don't you hate it when you buy makeup and the brush that comes with it is total $@!%??] I also like how thin it is so I can easily slip it into my purse and take it with me on the go! [the large mirror is also a big bonus!] Great product for anyone who loves neutral colors <3
I bought this because I needed to spend a couple extra bucks to get free shipping, and this was the cheapest thing on Sephora's website. I bought the white one, and I don't really have any issues with it being too hard or anything, plus it lasts a long time. My only complaint would be that it's so tiny! I may or may not buy another white one sometime, but this is definitely a product I can live without.
I bought this a week or so ago at Walmart [why do I buy everything from Walmart..? maybe because it's next to In-n-Out burger, hehe ♥], and it's wonderful! I bought the green one, I think it's cucumber melon or something like that? Anyway, it smells great and never makes my hands sticky or greasy, which is a problem I've experienced with a lot of other hand lotions. For anyone looking for a small hand lotion to keep in your purse or car, this is a great buy! [inexpensive, too, I bought it for around $3]
Overrated product, but adorable packaging!
I agree with Lisa A. I have this lip balm in Summer Fruit [the red one]. I bought it on a whim [as with almost all of my makeup LOL I'm such a loser haha] from Walmart's checkout lane/stand/aisle/whatever. Anyway, I bought it because it wasn't too expensive [2 dollars something cents] and EVERYONE raves about it for some unbeknownst reason. The package is very cute but also very bulky. I carry it in my purse, but on days I go without a purse I use my BabyLips lip balm instead because it fits in my pocket [and has SPF!]. As far as moisture goes, it's not any better than the other lip balms I've used. [same goes for the BabyLips stuff, I bought them 'cause of the hype]. I'd definitely buy more of the EOS balms because they smell amazing and I'd like to try some other scents/flavors, but if you're looking for a great moisturizing product, this isn't really for you!
By far the BEST
Everyone knows armpits can get stinky, but sometimes deodorant doesn't do what it's supposed to! I have tons of different kinds of cheap deodorant, but none of them were working for me. Until I picked this up from Walgreens. I knew I needed a better deodorant, so I went for this one because of the "clinical strength" and also because I have the Dove pomegranate body wash, so I'd figure the smells would all match. I also like how it's moisturizing and there isn't too much whiteness [as with some deodorants]. Don't get me wrong; it isn't completely invisible, but its not super obvious! Although it was pricey at around $10, this was WELL worth it! If anyone is having issues with their deodorant not working, buy this product!
Good powder, don't use it too often though.
This is a pretty good powder, however I wish there was a mirror. Oh well! It has a very nice matte effect, but if you put too much on it becomes kinda obvious that it's there :T As in, you can literally see the powder on your face. Just be careful! I usually use rice powder [ which is great ], but if I want a bit of SPF, I use this. Good buy!
I normally don't like lip gloss but...
THIS PRODUCT IS AMAZING. I wear it almost every day! I haven't really noticed any dramatic plumping, but the cool tingling effect is very pleasant. n___n I usually wear it over my Big & Healthy Lipstick [ in Las Vegas ] for a bit more color, but it's also great alone! I highly recommend both the Big & Healthy gloss and lipstick!
I tried this on in Sephora and I immediately LOVED it. It's a great lipstick that also doubles as a liner! PLUS it has a built-in sharpener which I thought was such a cute idea n__n The plumping effect is nice, I like the gentle tingle [ much unlike NYX's plumper which BURNS, don't buy it ] and the beautiful color! I usually put my Buxom lip gloss over it, but if you want a nice matte look, this will do the job all by itself! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice lipstick with a mild plumping effect!
I love this eyeliner! It's very smooth and easy to blend, with great color! My only complaint would be about the brush that came with it; the hairs are too stiff and it hurts my eyelid, but I just use my own brush n__n About the flaking issue a couple of other people have mentioned, I just dampen my brush a little bit and I don't have that issue. Overall a great buy!
I bought this product in Delectable [ kind of a candy-apple red ] from Grocery Outlet for less than a dollar, and it's great! It's more glossy than a balm and not as pigmented as a gloss, that's what I like about it n__n I tend to stay away from lip glosses, but this is the perfect balance. I like the way they put it in a pot and not a tube, it's easier [ to me ] to apply that way. I just use my finger and dab a bit on. Sometimes, I put it over my NYX Round Lipstick for a bit of shine ♥ I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for just a hint of color!
