Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear LIGHT Foundation SPF10
Peaches1027 5/27/2010 9:02:00 PM
I swore I'd never buy h/e foundation again because I love my Rimmel Lasting Finish so much, but this foundation is worth every penny and my Rimmel foundation has been put away. This is very light and sheer, layers well when I want more coverage, lasts all day, does not rub off, lasts through my 45-minute workouts, makes my pores almost invisible, and eliminates the need for concealer. This is a perfect foundation. $33.00 USD. Highly recommended.
Lipstick -Revlon - Matte Lipstick- all shades (new for Winter '08)
Peaches1027 2/25/2010 11:25:00 PM
This is exactly what a lipstick should be: Smooth, creamy formula that doesn't slip or bleed, longlasting without being drying, and highly pigmented colors. I love this product and I'm sure my collection will grow. Can't recommend it enough.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze - 535 Eternal Blossom
Peaches1027 2/25/2010 11:22:00 PM
I wanted a slighly shimmery, pale pink gloss, and with my coupons and rewards I was able to purchase this for $1.00. I'm glad I did. It's worth more than that. The color is exactly what I was looking for, and the formula feels smooth on my lips. This lasts for several hours. I took off a lippie because this gets gunky on my lips sometimes and because the smell is strong. It doesn't smell bad, but you definitely notice it when you pull out the wand. Still a good product, though, and I would repurchase.
Lipstick -MAC - All's Fair (Blonde Brunette Redhead)
Peaches1027 2/25/2010 11:18:00 PM
I love MAC Lustre lipsticks, and I loved this color in the tube. On my lips it's a pink berry color that is slightly shimmery and brightens up my face. Typical MAC lipstick, which is a compliment not an insult, and I would definitely repurchase.
Fragrances -Lancaster - Sarah Jessica Parker - Endless
Peaches1027 2/18/2010 1:10:00 AM
I am going to have a hard time reviewing this because I don't know what it's supposed to be. I like the name and the bottle, so that's why I tried it. It smells more like spicy, musky, dirt cheap men's cologne than anything else, and it's so strong I went to the bathroom at the store to wash it off. I can't believe Sarah Jessica Parker, who's supposed to be a fashion icon, would let her name be attached to this mess. Don't waste your time on this, ladies.
I own three of these, and I love them all. They are very moisturizing and healing, and they give my lips a nice soft color. I don't think they're too shimmery, but they can be over the top if you apply too much. I won't pay full price for these, though, which is five dollars. I don't think any lip balm or gloss is worth that much money. When I find them on clearance I buy tons of them at a time, and I pay about two dollars a tube. I will continue to buy on them as long as I find them on sale.
Treatments -Redken - Redken Extreme Rescue Force Fortifying Treatment
Peaches1027 2/14/2010 11:13:00 PM
I've used this product for several years. I can't believe I didn't write a review a long time ago. This is a protein treatment that is supposed to stop hair breakage and strengthen and fortify damaged hair. That's exactly what it does. My hair is thinning and fine due to a health problem, and this stops the breakage and restores shine and strength to my hair. It does not make your hair feel soft after you use it, and it won't make it easy to brush out either, but it never promises to do that. I don't use this regularly, just when I feel like I need it, especially in the winter. One treatment gives excellent results, and after three or four my hair is back to looking as good as it possibly can considering I don't have the full head of hair I used to. I highly recommend this product. ($17.00 USD)
Lipstick -American Beauty - Enduring Beauty Lipcolor
Peaches1027 2/7/2010 11:09:00 PM
The only reason I picked up this lipstick is because the lines were really long at Kohl's, and I knew if I bought makeup I could walk right up to the register in the beauty department and make my purchases and get out the door, so that's what I did. I grabbed Cottage Rose, and I've been wearing it every single for the two weeks I've owned it. I love the formula. It's what a long wearing, matte lipstick should be: Creamy, not too thick, and not slippery. I love the formula and I love the nude pink color. I took off one lippie because the packaging is kind of sharp and clunky and because sometimes this lipstick makes my lips feel dry. It's very cold right now, so maybe that has something to do with it. In any event, I will definitely repurchase this.
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this fragrance before, as I really like it and just purchased my second bottle. This is a floral oriental that is very sweet and feminine in the drydown without being too young and girlie. It can be a little cloying (hence four lippies instead of five), and is definitely not a summer perfume, but it's great for winter months. It has good staying power too. I first purchased this at Macy's for about 50 bucks, but repurchased it at Kohl's the other day for $25.00
I wanted to like this fragrance because when first applied it is a soft, powdery floral that I love. This just does not work with my chemistry though. After a few minutes of drydown it turns into a spicy, slightly musky mess that is extremely unappealing. Normally I would give it an extra lippie because the staying power is so good, but this perfume smells awful and it isn't easy to wash off.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Deviant
Peaches1027 1/25/2010 5:17:00 PM
This is my sixth purchase of UD 24/7, and the formula of Deviant is just as creamy and long lasting as all the other colors in this line, so I will only review the color. This is a medium shade of jewel-toned blue with sparkle in it. I'm in my 40s and I don't want to look like I'm trying to be young, but I did want to brighten my eye area, so I decided to give this a try. I apply it to my lower lashline only, after I apply my UD 24/7 Bourbon or Underground and two coats of mascara. Then I apply this on top of that. The effect is very pretty. You can definitely see the blue and the sparkle, but it isn't over the top because it blends in with the brown liner, and it does indeed brighten my face. In the summer I might try wearing this liner alone, but for now I'm pleased with the way I'm wearing it. Another homerun for Urban Decay. ($17.00 USD)
Hair Color -Clairol - Nice 'n Easy - Root Touch Up
Peaches1027 1/24/2010 10:50:00 PM
I've always been afraid to color my hair at home because of the mess, so I've been paying my stylist to do it for me for years. Never again. This product literally takes 20 minutes from start to finish, isn't messy at all, and is very easy to rinse away. I use it around my face, which is where all of my gray hair is. It covers them up completely. Highly recommended.
Scrubs -Olay - Regenerist Microdermabrasion and Peel Kit
Peaches1027 1/24/2010 10:45:00 PM
This product sells out quickly where I live, and when it went on sale I was lucky enough to be able to purchase the last one. It's worth full price, however. This gives my skin the extra boost it needs to stay clear and smooth, and it makes me look refreshed. Follow the directions, and you will get great results.
I'm puzzled by the great reviews this product gets. I found it to be a huge disappointment. It isn't any more pigmented than drugstore eyeshadows that cost a quarter of the price, and this product disappears in a half hour. I am returning this tomorrow, after trying to wear it for three days. I'm sure it would last all day if I used my UDPP underneath, but as I said, I have drugstore eyeshadows that don't need UDPP and cost a fraction of the price. The only thing sinful about Sin is its poor quality and overblown hype. The color is pretty, but so what.
Scrubs -Queen Helene - Oatmeal N' Honey Natural Facial Scrub
Peaches1027 1/22/2010 4:05:00 PM
I love this product, so much that I never let myself run out of it. It's a gentle exfoliator that leaves your skin smooth and soft without irritating it. It makes a great body cleanser too. Even my husband loves it and uses it regularly.
