I have oily lids and being native american, I have very hooded eyes. This is the only product that acts as an effective eye primer for me. And I use it as an undereye concealer, too.
So. Much. Fail. It was so watery that when I touched the brush to my lashline, the liner ran immediately into my eye. That was not fun. So after crying murky grey tears, I cleaned up the mess and tried again. I managed to not dye my eyeball that time but the line was blotchy, grey-ish and watery. It wasn't worth the $1.
Shampoo -L'Oreal - EverCreme Cleansing Conditioner
fuzzybluelogic 3/18/2012 11:51:00 PM
It smelled fantastic, to me at least. I have short, wavy color-treated hair that tends to frizz and bought this to use while on a month long trip to Texas and Louisiana. It was an unseasonably warm and wet February and I was sharing living space with 15 other adults so I figured that a cleansing conditioner would save me a few minutes when I managed to claw through my relatives for a turn in the shower. I've used VO5 conditioners as cleansing products before so I thought I knew what to expect. I was wrong. While it smelled really good, this product left my hair both dry, frizzy and oddly sticky. At first I thought it was the Texas well water, but I had the same result with New Orleans hotel tap water. My hair wasn't clean or conditioned, it was frizzy and felt dirty. It didn't respond well to heat styling at all. But it smelled freakin' awesome.
Maaan, I'm going to be doomed to residual smudges for days. Boo. For a mascara that is so hard to remove, it flaked all over the friggen place. It didn't do much for volume and length, but it held a curl ok. It wasn't clumpy and was nice and black, but the flaking was crazy. And when I tried it with a primer, the flaking was worse. Note: I have relatively good eyelashes and don't ask much from a mascara, but this one was really a big pile of fail.
I love tubing mascara. I have crazy sensitive eyes and they seem to hate everything except Clinique's Lash Power - which is nice for an everyday liner. But I wanted BAM lashes. I was in Ulta and stumbled across this mascara as I considered trying Biggest Lashes for the gabillionith time. I hadn't know Prestige had a tubing mascara! I'm kinda LOLWUT at the reviews because how can a tubing mascara that is so black, so lush and look so good have a 2.4? And it even washes off easily! It's a little fussier than Clinique, but you get more volume and color. It didn't uncurl my lashes or smudge. 5 stars and will rebuy. HG HG HG
This is happiness in a bottle. It's a dark grapey purple jelly base with purple glitter. Three coats has it complete opaque on my nails. The neat thing is how it has this 3D effect where it looks like you're looking *into* the nail...kind of like stars in a night sky, some are closer and brighter, some are further away. It's really cool. I've had it on for four days with only minor tip wear (I used SH top coat in the red bottle). The first coat looked really thin and streaky, but it looked really good after the 2nd coat. I plan on buying a backup.
Primer/ Corrector -Fusion Beauty - Fusion Beauty anti-acne primer
fuzzybluelogic 10/18/2011 1:15:00 AM
I'm about 3/4 through the bottle and that last 1/4 is gonna be a drag to get through. It reminds me of Rimmel's Fix and Perfect...just instead of an unholy apricot orange goo, FB anti-acne is Dijon mustard dark yellow. It even crusts in the pump like mustard. I've tried it under all sorts of foundations and have yet to find one that didn't suffer in some way. The primer didn't do ANYTHING. At all. No reducing the appearance of pores and fine lines, no healing of pimples, it DID cause breakouts, and it made foundation difficult to blend and look cakey. The only non-fail thing it does is be so damn yellow. It helps a bit with redness. That's it. At $42 it should do something. Anything. Ugh. So much fail.
Eyeliner -Clinique - Brush-on cream liner in TRUE BLACK
fuzzybluelogic 10/5/2011 8:54:00 PM
I've had this cream liner for several months and it's just as creamy and smooth as the day I opened it. Man, my eyes are crazy sensitive. I react badly to everything - MAC liners, UD liners, Wet n Wild, Milani, Loreal, Prestige, NYX. I even had my eyes swell up and peel after using TFSI and UDPP. Then I found this. It's a smooth, very creamy true black that dries to a semi-matte finish. I use it to tightline and it doesn't move. It doesn't smear or fade or flake or transfer. Best of all, I can't even feel it. No itching, no stinging, no watery eyes. And no swelling and peeling. It comes off easily with any cleanser/wipe/oil I've used. It also doesn't have any odd undertones, it's black. Not gray-black, red-black, green-black. Just black. I'll absolutely buy this again. HG.
Meh. That's pretty much how I feel when I apply False Lashes. It's very black, which is nice, and it doesn't flake. It's a little clumpy, a little wet, and pretty much completely mediocre. I have pretty good lashes and this pretty much just made them black. That's it. It's okay. It's the Kanye Shrug of mascara.
I love this color. I'm a n00b at painting my nails but found this polish, from the 2011 Summer Set, easy to work with. Two coats had it opaque and it wasn't streaky. It's a nice lilac grey that is gorg for summer. It showed tip wear after three days (but I didn't wrap the tips) and it peeled after six days (but Seche Vite does that to me). It's my favorite over several higher end polishes. The one odd thing is the cap is a bit awkward and it does tend to dry slow, even with a quick dry top coat. I do recommend it and I would buy it again.
Oh how I love these little drops of pain. They sting like the dickens but if you're starting to get that computer screen blur at work, or are going text blind, or cigarette smoke is killing your eyes...these drops are the answer. They're like ice cold water and will sting for a second or two. Blink a few times and there ya go, refreshed and crystal clear. I purchased mine from Walgreens and they were around $4. These things are the 5 Hour Energy for eyeballs.
Foundations -L'Oreal - Visible Lift Line Minimizing Makeup
fuzzybluelogic 7/4/2010 3:18:00 AM
So sad that I find my perfect color match (144 Light Ivory is a smidge less yellow than Nars Sheer Glow in Siberia) and it was a $15 d/s foundation that was so made of fail. The texture was great, it blended great (with Sephora's #55) and then it set...and my whole face looked weird and crepey. And my poor pores. Man, this stuff couldn't be dewrinkled or depored with Clinique's Instant Pore Minimizer. It also defeated: Smashbox, Monistat, MAC prep&prime spf 50, L'Oreal Studio magic and on and on. This is the new formula
Concealers -LORAC - Double Feature concealer/highlighter
fuzzybluelogic 5/5/2010 1:36:00 PM
Finally, a concealer that I love. I'm giving it 5 lippies even though the find the highlighter side kinda "meh". I'm uber fair, NC10, and the product is a perfect match (it's the lightest shade). I apply a tiny bit to just the blemish itself with a brush, the I swipe a very lightly damp sponge over the stick and pat the concealed spot. I clean the roller ball with a babywipe and hand sanitizer between uses (so I don't spread bacteria) and I blend the area around the blemish. This stuff is the shiz and and half the price of MUFE and Amazing with better colors.
Cleansers -Lumene - Lift Touch Rejuvenating Cleansing Oil
fuzzybluelogic 5/4/2010 1:59:00 PM
I love this stuff. You rub it neat onto your dry/with make up face and then watch that Revlon Colorstay and waterproof mascara go right down the drain. It smells nice and leaves me feeling clean and soft. I only break out very rarely due to stress and hormones. I don't care for the bottle, the plastic is very flimsy, and the oval bottom isn't stable. The pump tends to shoot the oil rather than dispense it. I will purchase again, I'll just use another bottle.
Pressed Powders -New York Color - Pressed Translucent Powder
fuzzybluelogic 5/4/2010 9:30:00 AM
I bought this out of broke-ness and need when my foundation oxidized while out running errands. Four months later, I'm about to hit pan. I LOVE this. It looks hella white and a bit pink in the pan but it blend perfectly on my NC10 yellow skin. It's super fine and doesn't cake AT ALL. Just buy a pack of those little puffs from CVS or Ulta and you're good to go. (I think I like this better than both my MAC Blot and MAC MSFN, shhh)
