Horrible. Way too much money for what it is. Yes, it controlled my oil, but to the point that it dried my face out and made me look rough, old and haggard. People at work actually came up to me b/c I looked ''sick.'' My friend said, ''What's wrong? You look SALLOW!!!!" OMG, it was this makeup. Furthermore, it goes on patchy, dries too fast, looks cakey and makes you look older than you are. The formulation is way too opaque and mask-like. I can only see this ever being appropriate for a red-tie event at night where you need a ''heavy'' and ''done-up'' look. And even then, you can find a better foundation than this. IN THE TRASH.
Foundations -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15

HORRIBLE. Now, let me be more specific. How can I accurately describe this foundation? Let me put it this way. First, think of funeral parlor makeup. Okay, THIS IS WORSE. It's thick and pasty, wears off unevenly and it will clog your pores. At least, this is how it was for me. I actually looked ROUGH by the end of the day, because of this ''foundation.'' My skin broke out all over the place. I tried to give it chance, but after 15 days, I went to the dermatologist and he told me that he has seen several women with reaction to this stuff. Bottom line, STAY AWAY!
Blush -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Blush in Peach Passion
Daniela7474 8/4/2012 12:15:00 AM
This is GORGEOUS! This is the perfect peachy-pink color and it looks so natural. I swear, I look at least 5 years younger when I wear this! I love that the color is somewhat sheer, so it looks my real color, not like I'm wearing makeup. This formula is very finely milled and smooth. Feels like a dream when applying and I love the contour brush that comes with it. Although I feel this is a bit pricey, it's worth any penny. TOTAL RAVE!!!!!!
Loose Powders -Clinique - Blended Face Powder and Brush
Daniela7474 8/2/2012 1:12:00 AM
In general, Clinique's blended face powder is a very good product at a reasonable price point. HOWEVER.... Be warned about Invisble #20. ICK! Made my face look grey, dull and ashen. Seriously, I had a glow after putting on my foundation, then put on the Invisible blend and looked like I had a face a dried dead skin. Also, the powder is NOT invisble, has a definite grey-brown color. UGLY. I am not using transparency #2 and it's lovely.
Primer/ Corrector -Clinique - Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector
Daniela7474 7/19/2012 4:28:00 AM
HORRIBLE. Did nothing to refine my pores or control oil. Feels like a greasy mask on my face. Within an hour, my makeup was combined with my natural skin oils and this stuff. Save your money, this was a waste!
Not crazy about this shampoo. The pros: Smells nice, only need a little bit The cons: Feels silky soft and clean after washing, but about 6 hours after washing, my hair is like an oil slick. And I have DRY hair. I guess the rest of you must have VERY dry hair, because it seems I am one of the only ones who can't hack this shampoo. IMO, save your money, better shampoos out there for less.
Lipstick -Korres - Mango Butter Lipstick in Natural Pink 13
Daniela7474 4/15/2011 11:07:00 PM
I usually like Korres products, especially their lip butter in a pot. HOWEVER... This lipstick was horrible. While I would not go quite as far as calling it drying, it did NOT moisturize my lips. While it applies somewhat creamily, it quickly mattifies and your lips feel tight. And the smell. UGH! The Smell! It's horrible. It smells like a cheap drugstore lipstick. I didn't care for the color (more on that below), but at the high price I paid (and lost the receipt, so can't return it...), I was trying to get over the smell. But I can't, it's just impossible, as the smell makes me feel ill. Now, the color..... This will sound really bad, but the truth is, this reminds me of FUNERAL HOME LIPSTICK. It's not a true pink, and it's FAR FROM NATURAL. It has a weird yellow base to it. I have VERY white teeth, but the yellowness in this lipstick made my teeth look really bad. Not to mention, I looked like I was wearing cadaver makeup each time I put this on. Horrible, I wish I could recommend and Korres is generally a good brand, but I just can't----terrible product.
Loved this for the first two weeks. My hair looked bouncier, fuller and shinier. Then it must have built up, b/c my hair is verrrrry dry and lifeless now. Not to mention, this eventually gave me a rash around my hairline and made my head and neck itch. I need to take a break from this product.
Lipstick -Clinique - Chubby Stick - Super Strawberry
Daniela7474 3/12/2011 10:47:00 PM
This was a real disappointment! I usually love Clinique, but this particular product is horrible. The lid is loose and comes off in my purse. I don't like the crayon feel b/c this product is WAY TOO BRIGHT to pencil in, so I prefer to use the side of the crayon so I can control the color better. It's not moisturizing (in fact, it's borderline drying), it's not glossy at all and actually makes my lips look less full and very tight (like a raisin), and the color doesn't last too long. Which is weird, considering the color is way too bright, in my opinion. Three words for this product: DRY CLOWN LIPS.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! Don't let the name on the can fool you. This will NOT make your hair stiff, but rather voluminous, shiny yet flexible. I love how the mist is fine, sprays evenly, the spray nozzle doesn't clog, and leaves my hair bouncy yet sparkly. So many high alcohol content sprays dry my hair out and make it look dull, but this one doesn't. Worth every penny!
HORRIBLE. I usually can find at least one thing good to say about a product. I can't do that for this one! First of all, it's not conditioning in any way whatsoever. It coats my hair and makes it feel slimy, but unevenly. Parts are slimy, other parts of my highlighted hair are dry and rough. But I can get over that, as I really wanted it more for color enhancing than conditioning. WORTHLESS!!! Did not help tone down yellow tones in my highlighted hair at all! What a waste. It's like purple vaseline. SAVE YOUR MONEY!
Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Bronzer
Daniela7474 10/30/2009 4:46:00 AM
HORRIBLE. This stuff turns me orange. It's really difficult to get much on your brush, then when you do, it goes on patchy. Just awful. Oh, and it's starting to break me out. It's going in the trash.
HOLY CRAP THIS SUCKS!!!! I swear, I look WORSE now that I've used this. Before I just had some brassy streaks in my blonde that I wanted to get out and make a little more cool toned. This crap actually warmed my hair and now I look strawberry blonde. Granted, now the color is more uniform and I don't look like a calico cat, but now I have SOLID STRAWBERRY color. UGH! How can something that was supposed to take the warm and brassiness out, actually put it back in. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND STAY CLEAR OF THIS PRODUCT. IT'S HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This stuff is GREAT!!!!!!!!!! We have really hard water with lots of cholorine, which results in my blonde highlights going brassy very quickly. This shampoo makes my hair squeaky clean and shiny, as well as removes the orangey colored tones from the chlorine. Smells great and since I only use it two or three times a week (as directed on bottle), it lasts a long time. I will ALWAYS buy this---it's genius!
Blush -Clinique - Soft-Pressed Powder Blusher '01 New Clover'
Daniela7474 6/6/2009 4:23:00 PM
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!! This is THE BEST blush I have EVER used. While I really like Cupid and Iced Lotus, New Clover is the most natural and pretty color I have used from Clinique. It's not too light, not too dark, just right. I only need a few swipes and I look fresh and rested. I find this blush goes really great with Bamboo Pink lipstick. As soon as I run out, I'm buying more!
