Mascara -Almay - One Coat Nourishing Mascara Triple Effect

Perfect. Lenghtens, thickens and aboslutely beautiful. Nice brush, long wand. I am not a fan of Almay, except for: THIS, the eye make up remover pads and a translucent shimmer powder that has been discontinued. I am not a fan of any of their makeup or eyeshadows Take a chance on this and I know you will get another one

oh yeah! good stuff. finely milled. great powder. yes sets foundation beautifully. great price. bought a second box when I did not need because of an ELF sale. Solution to holes. The same I use for all loose powders, just peel the lid half way. I love the black box
Moisturizers -Eucerin - Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sensitive Skin Creme
BeautBetty 6/16/2011 12:27:00 AM
I would not use this on face if you have oily skin but it works well as an under eye cream. It is rare for me to find a cream that I use for more than 1/3 of a jar because my skin breakouts, sensitivity, wrinkles, rosacea-you name it! but this on is 1/3 gone. It's hard to find the Q10 formula. I found at Rite Aid and now at Bed Bath and Beyond in the US. I don't mind the jar-I'm ok with dipping my clean fingers
too expensive for what you get and what it does mix cheap NYC gold powder with your own powder and you got it Just too much money for these days Will pass update: if you have the money go for it. if not pass on gave 5 lippies because it's a quality product
have not used much but bought because of Youtube comments. It is matte and lasts a long time I felt it went a bit dry and would choose Revlon Colorstay for long wear Be aware that many stores are getting rid of these and are heavily discounted. Many rimmel products that we use and like or love will be going away so buy an extra one if you use them. For example many of the single shadow colors are also going away and there are some beautiful ones to grab
I have both the "white" and Fair Light I like these even though I have oily skin I use a kabuki brush to buff well. Shimmer no Sparkles, like the one you get in Laura Mercier Secret Brightning Powder. Yes I use all over and under the eyes over concealer It lasts me a long time, still in original one. bought extra in fair light because on sale It can get a little messy because it's not tighly compounded so it can be a bit dusty. Make sure to rub and tap and buff As another reviewer if you use over a matte foundation like EL double wear, it should be ok.
pretty can be used as an accent darker color package is so little that is hard to use ( reason for one lippie) but fits in a tight drawer full of other makeup stuff :) Beware that this is being discontinued as this is being written. SO, if you like this, stock up
This review if for the Aveeno Active naturals positively ageless Day youth perfecting mousterizer SPF 30. It's under this other title in the review because the packaging matched what I have I bought this product because it had shiitake mushroom, which Origins also use in their mousterizers. The product is in a pump dispenser which I think is very sanitary and prevents oozing, etc. Actually looks expensive to make! High SPF -30, UVA and UVB Smells terrific-I like fragance in my products-I'm not sensitive to them and do not cause me problems. It is expensive 22+USD. But if it works, then ok, right? Cons: To me, it appears to be just a sunscreen, and for that I can buy higher SPF at lower prices Shiitake extract is one of the latter ingredients so there's no much to brag about here If you have combination /oily skin, you will find a bit greasy. If you use a foundation above this, make sure that the foundation is also not a moisturizing one (unless you have dry skin and therefore need it) because it will feel greasy If you have combination / oily or oily /acne prone sking, be careful I would not use it for additional protection under a tinted moisterizer-too greasy I tried it also under an oil free tinted mousterizer and it was greasy I would love to keep but at this price and with so many others in the drawer, is hard to justify the price. hope this helps
been around a long time price is ok not more than $25 if at TJ Maxx, Target, etc I spray it away from me, a big spritz, like an air freshener after shower and it smells great. This will last and all folks around like it If you put directly on body ( wrists, cleavage, etc) it could be over bearing I don't know why the 18-25 crowd is buying this. I cannot imagine you beautiful young ladies with something that is this heavy. i will buy again I'm scared to order perfume off the web-I've had problems with stale ordor and just tight down bad luck with them
Treatments -L'Oreal - Advanced Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle Concentrate
BeautBetty 4/1/2011 2:16:00 AM
Beautifully packaged. convenient to use because of the tip-can put right on the wrinkle. Bad for acne prone skin like mine, even at my age. It caused me little white bumps under skin all over my chin and close to the "smile" wrinkles around my mouth. So now I have to take care of these, then figure out what to use instead that will not have this reaction. This trial and error method can become expensive and I don't like going back again and again to the drugstore to return items-it's just not ethical and also in the long run we pay higher prices for these actions.
Concealers -Maybelline - Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer
BeautBetty 3/25/2011 1:22:00 AM
I agree this concealer is very good and I have used it as a base. Now, keep your fingers crossed that it is not discontinuedn just like other products which are great and are switched for another gimmicky substitute. Yes. It is a good product
just to add a comment. Rimmel used to make or at least still selling in some places, three golden tones lipglosses like this one and eachof them are absolutely beautiful. check them out. not smelly, not sticky, perfect alone or over other colors
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Jessica Simpson Fancy Nights
BeautBetty 2/27/2011 12:32:00 AM
to me, it has a similar character to shalimar or emeraude (sp?). anyway, it is not sweet like the other ones. I love the green bottle-not typical in perfume bottles today- looks beautiful
Aren't these the prettiest things? I cannot smell the violet smell at all so if you are concerned with scent, it is very mild at all. I had to stick my nose in it LOL to smell it. it looks girley and feminine but of course the most important thing is that it leaves a very pretty blush on your face and I found it pigmented so it will last a long time. I'm happy looking at it. I bought both the rose and translucent, both work well Hope this helps you whether to get or not. the translucent of course is more natural and can be used as a highlighter ( ohhh! maybe over a cream blush, what do you think?. the rose will be rose so be soft to the rose!!!
I think this is being discontinued. WHY? The package is perfect to place in a purse, brush is great. and it leaves a beautiful dust of shimmer that at my age, some of it does me good-not a disco ball but a pretty shine why why why discontinue? so I went and bought two. hope it's freshI i'm keeping in dark cool place i don't understand why this and other drugstore. brands are discontinuing some great products and redesigning the packages, something as simple as the old tortoise shell round smooth compact powder has been turned into a cheap brown plastic cumbersome package- who thought of this? if ivory soap and johnson's baby shampoo has stood the test of time, why can't these. I am so tired of going to look for something perfect and that someone in a marketing department wants to change and conjured up somtheing to get promoted!!
