smooooooth away review!


I bought this product last month and I am finally doing a review on it!!  

I bought this product initially to get rid of my hairy arms...someone did a a demo on me at the mall and it didn't hurt, my arm was really smooth and soft, but the lady was trying to rip me off...$20!!  I knew I could get it at CVS for $9.99!!  I went with a girlfriend and we got the vibrating one because well...it looked so much more fun to play with ;p  har har...ANYWAYS..

DO NOT BUY THE VIBRATING ONE!!  Just buy the normal one...plus the vibrating one cost $5 more...the vibrating one...because it is on a plastic piece...the glue melts and gets all over your hand and it just nasty.  Do yourself a favor and get the regular one for $9.99.

The fine crystals on the pads smooth away the hairs.  The kit comes with a large applicator, one small applicator, 5 large replacement pads, and 5 small replacement pads.

I've tried waxing...it hurts too much.
I've tried shaving...it grows back really prickly.
I've tried Veet...it grows back fast AND prickly.
Smooth Away grows back slower and not as prickly and pokey.

The only downfall...when using my left hand [I'm right handed], my left hand gets tired and I miss parts...so I just tell my sister to smooth away my arms...she doesn't mind much :p

I've only used it on my arms, and I think it works great.
The pack comes with a smaller piece you can use for your face [lips], and bikini area...I've tried a small part of my bikini line and I don't break out or anything.  

It's available at drugstores, the mall, online...I think it's cheapest at the drugstores though.

I love the price and the outcome.  I definitely recommend this product for its price.  Go get your Smooth Away kits!!

eki's cosplay entry!!

This is my entry for eki's [click here!] cosplay contest!!  I don't even know what character I was trying to be...at first I wanted to be Misa Amane from Deathnote...rarr but I don't know what happened...I just wanted to wear my shirt with the hooded ears :p

I used:


Here's what I came up with:
HAHA I just love the ears...
Hello Kitty love!
Hrm...kawaii ne?  Aren't my bows cute??  I got them from Tia's contest I won a while back :]

*squeezes Hello Kitty :p

I mixed the lip glosses since Sweet Heart came out too frosty...I don't like the color much...so I pinked it out more with Candy Shop which is a really cute pink!  If you have any other questions on what I used, please feel free to ask!! :]

more ammo please!

Whoo my lashes look nice and thick!



Andy needs to let me borrow his dslr...my camera just isn't cutting it...maybe I need to clean it...lol.  So I took a lot of eye pictures to try and get clear images of the colors...what a fail!

I thought I would use the teal and the two purples from the urban decay ammo palette that i love :]  I used the black color to deepen the crease...

I'm starting to like the Diorshow Iconic Mascara more and more...but it just doesn't lengthen as much as I would like it to....

I don't remember what was on my lips...perhaps the H.I.P. Plush jelly balm...mmm...

I need to stop buying so much makeup!!  I did a small haul...that post will be up shortly...once I stop procrastinating on my other homework...

I get to meet AYA [IRODORI] this FRIDAY YEAHHHH :D

If you could suggest one...just ONE Paul and Joe product to buy...what would it be ladies??  I'm not much of a foundation/primer type of gal...so what else??

ooh and i was tagged by 
ms. gloria!! thanks hun!

TAG YOU!

eotd and seeing two

This is the look I wore in my last post. I only have pictures of my eyes though.




This was just a simple look I did for my grandma's birthday party. I used a drugstore palette called Tropez Sunrise to Sunset. I got it at Walgreen's for under $4?? It has six really pigmented colors.
I used the cream color on the inner lid, with NYX Khaki on the rest of the lid. Then I used the darker green that has silver sparkles in the crease and MAC Sunday Best as highlight.
-Dior Iconic Mascara
- MAC blacktrack fluidline


Andy had some fun with photoshop...he loves me...a lot :]

I will do a post soon on how to use the brush cleaner :]

Contest update...I know that this month is my blog's one year birthday, but I will open the contest up in June once I am done with finals. :]
