this was ok. i mainly use it as a setting powder but not as a foundation because it doesnt give me enough coverage. the staying power sucks
Lip Gloss -Rimmel - Shock Gloss 3D Magnifying Lipgloss

great DS gloss. all of them are basically clear. i like the spatula applicator and the texture is sticky and cushony. i love the smell as well :)!
ive repurchased this es twice which ive never done with any other es so i can say this is my hg! this is my MLBB (my lids but better) everyday es. if im in a rush i can just swipe and go and some how, it makes my eyes look so much nicer than just a bare lid. for reference, im a nc 35-45 with dark brown eyes.
i dont know how lush does it but this stuffs amazing! when i first got it, i was scared that it would leave a film on my skin and break me out but it rinses squeaky clean and leaves my face happy :) there arent any "scrubby crystals" in it as said in a review below but it does leave my skin soft. its a bit of a pain in the butt because its not travel friendly and it does take a bit of time trying to make a paste out of it but totally worth it! it has a lavender scent but it doesnt bother me or my skin so whatever. for reference, i have sensitive very oily very dry acne prone skin.
i dont smell strawberry or caramel popcorn (i dont know anything about fragrances anyway) but i LOVE this! the bottle is cute too! the lasting power sucks though, lasts about 2 hours on me :( update: i used .5 oz up on my bottle and its only been about a month!

ive only been using this for a few days but its HG! i have a really hard time finding a moisturizer with spf that i like because i have sensitive very oily and very dry acne prone skin :( this is fragrance free, doesnt break me out or make me oily, and it comes in a pump package.
somewhat clumpy and FLAKES LIKE CRAZY! (which i never have an issue with). idk if its just me but i love the creamsicle scent.

disappointed :( it doesnt last at all and an hour after application, my face is shiny. breaks me out as well and it took me 3 pumps to get the full coverage i wanted which makes me look and feel cakey. too bad because i found an exact color match!
i agree with the review below except for the waterproof part.
i got this for the spf. made me oilier, broke me out terribly, left a white cast on my face, and its scented. comes in a pump packaging that you can lock.
nice packaging but it doesnt do anything for my eyes except burn them

i have fine dry long colored hair. this stuff smells great but it didnt work for me. its too greasy no matter how little i use and didnt do much for my hair in the long run (im reviewing this after i finished the entire bottle) i like the packaging though, it comes in a pump bottle.
Lip Treatments -Carmex - Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm
cynthea 10/29/2008 5:11:00 AM
i love carmex so i had to get this. i love that it has spf and it tastes/smells a bit sweeter than the original carmex scent/taste. the packaging is a slim plastic silver tube instead of the red and yellow tube. texture is thinner than the usual carmex in the stick form but i still love it. i found mine at walgreens for three bucks
its not chalky but the pigmentation is lacking. it looks like just shimmer and the shimmer doesnt last that long for me even with a base. if youre an nc 40 or darker, def skip this color, you will be disappointed!

works just as great as UDPP but its easier to blend and the tube packaging is much better than the wand applicator that UDPP has. ill be buying this instead from now on.
