Beauty on a Budget : Freeman Facial Mask Only $1 Review

July 30, 2010

These pictures might scar you for life. You will see us with no make-up plus some strange stuff on our faces. Must be 18 and over to view. (haha)

Freeman Facial Mask 0.5 oz.<br />price with wellness+ card
As Kana said today, "beauty sucks!!! " Sometimes you have to look really ugly for a little while in order to be really pretty later!! We found a great deal at Rite Aid today on Freeman one time application facial masks. With the extreme heat that we have been under here in the I.E., our skin is really in need of some major help. So when we saw these masks for Only $1 today, we grabbed a few and then ran home to get our beauty regimen on.

Jack and Munkey got the Cucumber Peel Off Mask that peels away impurities and leaves the skin smooth and silky while Kana got the Chocloate and Strawberries Detoxifying mask that helps make pores smaller.

10 minutes and one scared little sister later, we all had really smooth skin and happy with the results. Jack who would not let us take a pic of her with mask agreed to let us show her glowy skin after the mask was taken off.
We all agree we liked the results and even though we are not mask experts as you can tell by Kanas application of the product, we will most likely purchase a few tubes of the full size product to have on hand for the future. Our rating is based on the smell, the application and the effects of the mask PLUS the affordability of the product and the BONUS, it was fun to scare Sammy too.

Final Rating: 4 Eyeliners

On The Town w/ NYX Cosmetics

July 29, 2010

Last week right before we were headed out for a weekend of fun with our friends we received a package of makep up that my Mom had bought us from Ebay. She had seen this brand recommended on a blog and immediately ordered us some once she went online and found out how much she could save by getting them from Ebay versus the store.

This brand was new to us, but now that we have tried it we are really happy to say we LOVE it. As you can tell by any pictures you see of my sisters AND Mom, we L.O.V.E. mascara and liquid eyeliner. I guess you can say it's our thing and this brand NYX, really delivers when it comes to big lashes and big eyeliner. 

So far we have tried three items and can not wait to get some more, we went to the website and when we saw the huge collection of makeup in so many different colors we nearly had a heart attack. What we really want to try right away is the candy glitter liner, that looks like it's just amazing!

These are the products that we got and the rating we gave each:

  • Diamond Sparkle Lip Gloss       4 Eyeliners 
  • Doll Eye Mascara                   5 Eyeliners and 1 Gloss!!! (1st ever)
  • Felt Tip Liner                        4 Eyeliners

TEINT IDOLE ULTRA Foundation by Lancome Review

July 27, 2010

With this terribly hot summer that we are having in the California my sisters and I have been on the lookout for the perfect foundation that will keep us looking good without making us look overdone and even most importantly we need a foundation that will not make us break out. Being teenagers its very hard to find just the right make-up so we are going to be going through several different ones in the next weeks. Starting with some of the higher priced items and also some of the more economical brands. 

Today we are reviewing our moms favorite foundation, TEINT IDOLE ULTRA Foundation by Lancome.
Bisque 6
This foundation is priced a bit high ($42.00) but since my mom had been using it for years we gave it a test run over the weekend, we had to go to a friends party outside in the heat and thought it would be the perfect time to test it out.

The color we had to work with might have been a shade lighter than was needed but overall the look was pretty good. It certainly was better than the foundation she had been wearing lately, that makes her look too overdone. Mom was happy to see her looking a bit more natural. (except for those eyebrows)
Overall the foundation was able to take the heat without too much of a mess. A few applications of powder through the day kept the shine away and as usual a few people told her that she looked really nice, but thats not new and that is why we hate her guts. (JK)
The next day there were no new breakouts on her face, as we sometimes find the day after a full day of make up and extreme heat. So overall she was really happy with it.When we asked Kana if she liked the foundation and would use it again she said yes but that she can't afford it. We are teenagers, what do you expect? 

So next in our series we will keep looking for a foundation that works as well as Teint Idole but that is more affordable to all. If it were more affordable we might have given it a higher rating but with all that taken into consideration our final rating is:

Final Rating:
4 1/2 Eyeliners 

It's Tuesday and that means it's time to make new friends and find Fabulous new blogs. You will find us blog hopping here.

Review: The Falsies Mascara

July 21, 2010

Three of us , Kana, Munkey and Nessa are HUGE fans of false eyelashes. For us they don't even have to be for going out at night, we use them all the time. Mom says we look like trannies and does NOT like the look, so we came to an agreement when she saw the ads for this new mascara, we would try the mascara and if it worked as well as it promised then she would by it for us with no problem and we would leave the false lashes behind us.

Okay so its being advertised as making you look like you're wearing false lashes when you actually are NOT. This is a pic that they have on their site.
Now lets look at the disclaimer that is under the picture.

Erin’s look is enhanced in post-production.

Our Review:

Does this mascara give you the look of false lashes with only your real lashes underneath?

Three coats of Falsies later, kana does not look like shes wearing falsies. We found that the mascara works as well as others that are very popular right now (not department store brands) BUT it does NOT give you the appearance of false lashes. For the price we paid $6.95 we could have bought any one of those other brands and had the same results. 

Final Rating:
