I love to do DIY makeup items for both myself and my friends. It's fun to do and it's an activity that I can do with my kids (you should try it!). I do a lot of online shopping and I think the prices are quite reasonable. Except for the empty makeup palettes which can be bought cheaper on a site like amazon.com. I bought some liquid base and luminous pigment powder to attempt a batch of liquid face highlighter. The website has tutorials for this specific item and I bought the same kit they used in the tutorial, so it was quite easy to do. The end product was a bit meh- too much pigment for per unit of base liquid.. but I think it was my fault or I didn't shake the liquid enough before application.

I came across this website because I was doing a search for a particular BenNye item. It must be discontinued because it's out of stock on most other site that sell the brand. The price of the item was a bigh high, I'd say about $7 higher than the normal retail price.

I was in charge of organizing a girlfriend's birthday party and I thought it would be a nice gift to make and decorate personalized bottles of essential oils. I had seen some DIY videos on youtube and it looked like a fun project for my daughter and I to do one weekend. One of the DIY blogs that I was reading linked me to this website, so I took a look at what they were selling. They had both kits and items in bulk, which was great for me since I also needed the tools. It was a great place to get everything I needed and at a great price. I also think that this is a small shop run by a single person, so I like supporting small businesses, even if they are online. Everything arrived in perfect condition and the essential oil gifts were a huge success. Yay!

It was about a month before Halloween when my kid told me that he wanted to be a robotic vampire for his school's halloween parade (lol). I had no idea what looked like but he drew and showed a picture to me. It required blood.. a lot of fake blood. I wanted it to look legit, so I didn't buy any of that cheap looking fake blood at the Spirit Store. I found this store when doing an online search. I bought about 2 bottles (yes two) of the CinemaMakeup Fake Blood. It arrived when they said it would and we did a test run with it. It was very thick and looked very convincing. Will buy again for the next halloween. Thanks so much!

I found this website from a beauty blog that I follow. My skin has been feeling a bit dry and unbalanced lately (not sure if it's extra stress from work or the dry winter air starting to kick in). The product that was being reviewed was the Facial Peeling Gel, so I decided to give it a try. There was a free shipping coupon for first time purchasers, so I took the plunge! It arrived pretty quickly and I was eager to use it the night the package arrived. I rea and followed the instructions. At first, after using the face gel, my skin felt very soft and dewy. But when I woke up the next morning, my face was red and a bit sensitive. The skin of my face looked taut and a bit "pulled." This was not the product for me, but it might be the product for you if you're skin is more oily than dry and not sensitive to chemical peels.

I heard about glambot.com from a girl friend who works at Ulta. I checked out the site and was amazed that they have thousands of items available for purchase. I was able to find a MAC Studio Tech Cream Compact Foundation that is now discontinued. Because it was my first purchase, I was able to use a 15% off code that was emailed to me. Pretty awesome. Although the item was listed as 80% fill, it arrived in almost new condition. Although used makeup is not for everyone, it's great for those looking for a rare item or for expensive brands on a discount. I'm on their email list and this they are always rolling out insane deals, at least once a week. I like to check the site now and then to see what new items they have listed on the site. It's fun to even just window shop!

This site has great deals and a wide range of brands and different types of beauty items. I order semi frequently from the site but I got an item that I thought might be expired. Normally, this would not be a huge issue but this particular item was a face foundation with SPF in it. I know that my skin can have a adverse reaction to expired SPF items (such as face lotion with SPF in it). When I requested a return for the item, they would only issue credit since it was past their window for returns. How is this fair though, when I can't use the item at all?

About 2 months ago, I bought the Black Raspberry Vanilla Ring Candle for about $25. The candle itself was ok- nice scent but it was a little light. Also, you had to keep the candle burning in order to maintain the scent in the room. I had this candle in my living room, which might have been too large for a candle of this size.

I did find a ring in the candle, which was a bit too large for my fingers and a bit gaudy. If the ring had fit and was a style that I'd wear, then it would have been worth it. But because the ring was too large and not to my taste, this wasn't a purchase worth $25, imo.
