Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Eden
jalmy 11/9/2010 10:26:00 PM
This is so thick and it's just hard to apply in a way that didn't make my eyelids look weird. I tried using the smallest amount possible, but I couldn't get it to work right. I went back to the original version. I also had an issue with the packaging. After a couple of weeks, there was a crack just above the bottom circular part of the package. When I would put the applicator back in, the cream would come out of the crack. I would not buy this again.
Powders -Clinique - Clinique Redness Solutions Instant Relief Mineral Powder

I've been using this for a while and I've even re-purchased. I have broken capillaries and some rosacea and this definitely reduces the redness. I use it over makeup. I also have very oily skin and it doesn't clump up like some powders can.
This is so awful, I just had to comment. I got this on sale and it was a bonus pack with 2 of them. I liked it the first time I used it, but after that, it was a sticky mess that looked horrible. This also came off under my eyes, giving me that lovely racoon look. I wish I had read the reviews first. I was tempted to re-try this by twisting it as I take it out, as one reviewer suggested, then I remembered the racoon eyes. This is going in the trash.
Liquid -Prescriptives - Flawless Skin Total Protection Makeup SPF 15

This may be the best foundation I've ever found for me. I have very oily skin with some redness and this works very well. It gives good coverage and I don't get nearly as shiny as I usually do throughout the day. I normally have to blot 2 or 3 times throughout the day, but now, once in the afternoon is fine and I'm not that shiny if I skip it. I feel like the oil is still there, but somehow it's not as noticeable. My skin looks great with this and my pores seem so much smaller.
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Lipstick- Rose Tea

I bought this product after reading the reviews here and I love it! I've been wearing this for months. This is a great everyday pink lipstick with a great texture. I often put a little gloss over it, but it's fine by itself too. This is a couple shades darker than my natural lip color, so it looks natural but adds color. I will definitely repurchase.
Treatments (Eye) -Kiehls - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

I like this product and I think I'd buy it again. It is thick and seems to moisturize the area around my eyes well. I don't have any bad reactions to the ingredients. This takes a while to absorb for me and it looks shiny until it soaks in. It takes less than 5 minutes to absorb, so I do it fairly early in my morning routine.
Moisturizers -Olay - Regenerist Deep Hydration Regenerating Cream

I bought this because I was looking for a cheaper alternative to the Olay Definity cream I've been using. This is just an OK cream. I don't understand why it's scented at all. I don't like the scent, but it didn't cause me to break out and the smell didn't linger for too long. I have very oily skin, but I use this around my eyes and on my neck. This helped with the crepe-paper appearance the skin on my neck sometimes has (especially in sunlight), but overall, I don't think it's good enough to re-purchase.
I love this color! I've been using this for at least a year and I've just repurchased. The color is natural and subtle for my complexion. I have very light skin and blushes that are too pink look very fake on me. This is a dark peach color and it's perfect for me. In the past, other blushes, mostly creams, have made me break out. this has never caused any problems for me.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
jalmy 5/14/2008 10:54:00 PM
This is the only primer that I've ever found that works for me. I have very oily skin and eye shadow creases quickly for me. With this, it lasts all day without creasing!
I've been using this for a couple of months and I really like it. I use it as a base coat and it helps my polish stay on longer and my nails seem healthier. Despite the high cost, I'll definitely use this again.
Scrubs -Bath and Body Works - True Blue Spa Just a Minute Scrub
jalmy 5/10/2008 1:15:00 PM
This product is great! It smells good, it's easy to use and the results are noticeable. It makes my hands and cuticles feel soft and smooth. It's somewhat moisturizing, but I always follow it with additional hand lotion. I've been really surprised by this, mostly because it is really inexpensive and I haven't found much else in this brand that I like.
This is my new favorite mascara! I'm puzzled by the bad reviews here, but I guess we are all looking for something different. I've been looking for a subtle everyday mascara that won't clump or stick my lashes together. This one gives me color, definition, and a very small amount of volume, I don't have any clumping problem with this. This isn't good if you are looking for a thickening dramatic mascara, but if you have good lashes and just want more definition and color, this is great!
I also like this product after it's been used for a while. I find that it sticks too many lashes together when it's new. It seems like we all look for something different in a mascara. I'm looking for separation, definition and color. My lashes are long and thick enough, but they are almost clear on the end. This mascara is OK for me, but only after I use it a bunch of times. I find myself using my lash brush to separate my lashes after using this. Still, I've bought it a few times since I'm still on a quest to find something better.
Top/Base Coats -Orly - Orly Won't Chip- Polish Shield
jalmy 3/29/2008 9:17:00 PM
I tried this after reading reviews here and it just didn't work for me. My nails chipped after the second day. I use OPI polish and other top coats work much better than this. This product goes on thick, so it's hard to get one smooth coat. I would never buy this again.
This is a great alternative to white eyeliner for inner eyelids. I use this almost daily. White eyeliner always looked strange to me and this doesn't, even up close. It doesn't last all day, but it goes on smoothly and easily.
