This was horrible. I tried this because it was cheaper than the Josie Moran and was hoping it would work just as good- not even close. This oil is too thick and was harder to get off than the makeup. Would not buy again.
This worked for me, but it took me a long time to figure out how to use it. I tried initially in the summer and I felt like it made my melasma worse. So I stopped using. I tried again in the winter and it seems to be helping a lot. First off I would start when the sun isn't so harsh. Second, I use this only at night and have to wash my face very well. At least twice so there isn't any makeup left. I put a small amount of this all over. Wait 10 minutes and then put sheer transformation moisturizer. I did this at least 4 times a week and used sunscreen of at least 30 spf everyday. (The other 2 nights I use the invigorating night gel) I have been using for 2 months and have noticed a big change. My melasma is almost gone on my forehead and has lightened on my cheek! I will continue with this and hope it will work through the summer months.
This polish doesn't work! The glitter barely comes off the brush onto your nails, and if you go over it again it just takes off what little was there. Waste of money.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Clump Crusher mascara

This is a good mascara for everyday. It lasted all day, didn't clump, and kept my curl. I have sensitive eyes and this works fine. I used 2-3 coats everyday and by month 2 it started to flake so I had to get rid of it then. My only problem was the plastic bristles on the brush. This wasn't as bad as some I've tried, but they aren't my favorite and even hurt my lash line. I won't buy again because of that, but if you don't mind the plastic brush I'd give it a try.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational - Born With It
misanders 3/28/2013 1:47:00 PM
This is a great color to have! I have light to med color skin with yellow undertones and have a hard time finding a pink that works for me. They are either too frosty or too light, but this has enough warmth in it for me. It feels nice, works for everyday, & works with any gloss. The only negative would be the smell. I wish Maybelline would stop adding fragrance to their lipsticks because it's pretty overwhelming. I would describe it as a powder smell and it sticks with me all day. Would I buy it again, maybe if the smell was gone. Otherwise I'd rather find something more expensive in this exact shade.
This is not a great product. I have this in a teal color ( the name isn't on it). What I do like is that it is a thin twist up eye liner...that's about it on the positives. The negatives are...I tried this on my water line and it stung like crazy. My eyes were watering until all traces of this were gone from there. I tried using this just under my eyes and the formula was dry and tugged. I also put it on my hand next to a MUFE in a similar color, waited 5 minutes. When I rubbed this came off immediately and the MUFE one didn't budge. So I wouldn't say this is long-wearing like the packaging claims. I have sensitive eyes so I won't be purchasing anymore of these.
Hair -Wen by Chaz Dean - Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner

This is just ok. I have very long frizzy, curly hair. I washed my hair as directed every other day with this product and it took me 5 weeks to go through a whole bottle. This made no difference in my frizz at all. This just doesn't seem to work for my hair, I have other products that work better, I won't purchase this again.
I cannot handle the smell of this hairspray. It isn't a pleasant smell and it stays in your hair all day. The smell also stays around my bathroom for hours. Yuck! It is light weight and does an ok job, but will never buy this again.
I don't know why this didn't work for me. I have dry skin and heard great things about this foundation, but within hours of putting this on it was separating and accentuating every line on my face. I tried with my Ole Henrickson moisturizer, with a Nars primer, with a Laura Mercier primer, I tried with different brushes and my fingers with the same results. I just don't get it. It looked horrible. The only plus was the shade was so perfect. I've never found a color match like this which makes this even more disappointing. If anyone who loves this can suggest how they make it work I'd love to know.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - Wear Infinite Quad - Earthscape

This quad did not work for me. I don't understand why two of the colors are identical, 1 & 2. They look exactly the same when swatches. #3 is the most beautiful color, but with the glitter particles it had fall out like crazy. Then #4, the eyeshadow itself kept falling in my eyes throughout the day. This could have been amazing, too bad.
For a green eyeshadow quad this is pretty amazing. There's an emerald green with glitter, a khaki green, gold, and a light yellow. I was really surprised at how good this looked, I never pick out these colors. The only color that was just ok was the khaki green because it went a little muddy on me in the crease. I'd probably just stick to a brown, but otherwise this was great!
Blush -Sonia Kashuk - Beautifying Blush in Flamingo
misanders 2/11/2013 6:28:00 PM
This is a perfect pink blush for me. I've tried many and they are either to light, frosty, or change color. This does not do any of those things. It brightens my face and I love it. This last all day. If you have medium skin tone this is a blush to try.
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara
misanders 2/7/2013 3:02:00 PM
If you like thick, clumpy mascara then this is perfect for you. Unfortunately it did not work for me. Even after wiping the wand off I ended up with too much on my lashes. I could not use this without combing through my lashes every time. Because the formula is so heavy my lashes wouldn't curl like the normally do.
This mascara is horrible. I made the mistake of getting brown, well it is a very light brown. Your lashes would have to be white to even show up. Mine are not. Second the brush feels like needles. I usually get close to the roots of my lashes and brush through. Not even possible with this brush. It is so hard you can't. Then the formula, well it looks like theres nothing there. I would not waste money on this!
Best black nail polish I have found. Needs two coats, but with two it is a dark inky black. Plus Zoya polishes seem to last 4-5 days on my nails. One of my favorites right now!
