I like that this has spf 50...but that's about it. It just "sat" on top of my skin. Felt greasey and made my makeup look gross after an hour. It also caused major clogs on my chin. Will not be repurchasing.
I usually buy this when Clinique has their GWP. I think its.pricey for a toner, but it does clean and help exfoliate my skin nicely. It also helps minimize breakouts too. I've tried the Clarifying Lotion #2...and that did nothing for my combination skin. I'm still convinced there is something a little better out there that is cheaper, but since this works well for my skin, I'm afraid to try anything new. it did take some time for my skin to see results...but I did read some place that it could take 6-8 weeks before you see any improvements.

Bought this in Golden Blonde and I'm very pleased with it. Its not Orange...as most golden blonde shades are. It's natural looking and I love that it has two colors in the compact...so you can mix, blend and customize. The powder also has a wax like consistency...so it glides on. It has great staying power. Will definitely repurchase this.
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'N Soft Mascara Waterproof

sorry ladies...after reading so many positive reviews, i ran out and bought this. for me...it was TERRIBLE!!! my lashes were anything but full n' soft...even after just one coat. my lashes were stubby, clumpy and spikey looking. will not be buying this one again.
i think this is expensive for something that did nothing. i liked the feel of the cream and it didn't break me out, so i'll give it a 2. however, i saw no results from it at all...and i stuck with it and finished the jar. plus, it's a jar. i know a lot of products out there are in jars. but, i recently read online that as soon as you open them and the air hits the creams that the ingredients start to breakdown (read about this online) and they are never the same. they just get weaker and weaker each time you open and use them. so , it sounds like pump bottles are much more hygenic (i think) and more potent (retain the original strength because the air doesn't touch the product).
packaging is nice. i like the brush. it's also very inexpensive when it some to mascara...which made it a lot easier to throw out after one use. it's awful!!! it clumped, flaked, smudged...etc. it didn't extend anything. in fact, made my lashes look gross. i tossed it after one use.
love this shade. it's a nice, bright red with glittery sparkles in it. it looks awesome on toes!!!
I liked the packaging...the pump was nice. Other than that, this was awful!!! It did nothing for oil control. It did match my skin nicely (bought the alabaster 00). However...it settled into every fine line and wrinkle. The funny part...I have no fine lines and wrinkles!!! This product managed to find some though. Did I also mention the awful breakout it caused? Ugh!!! Huge cystic acne on my chin...which was extremely painful. I ended up returning it because it was so expensive. There was no way I was wasting $46 on this! I also brought back all her other products I bought, actually, talked into purchasing as well...her blush, lipgloss, concealor, powder and eyeshadow...all were just as awful.
The packaging is nice because it's a tube...but that's about it for this one. It was very thick and oily feeling. caused a huge breakout all over my chin. I ended up returning it...it was that bad.

going to give this one a 3...i love the color and like the sparkle...but it feels weird on. kind of gritty, which i'm guessing is from the glitter that is added to it. it's a pretty color, however, i'm unsure of the color on me i'll have to wear it a little bit more to decide if i will repurchase again.

Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - 080 Strawberry Shortcake

Love, Love, Love this color! I'm very fair and have a lot of trouble finding a pink shade that doesn't make me look like a clown. This gave me a very "innocent" look to my makeup today. I paired it with a bright pink blush, neutral eyes and it looked smashing! Very please with this color and will be repurchasing!
I'm lighter than a NW15. I normally use the MAC F/B in white with a splash of NW15. But, it's a pain to mix my foundation color every morning. So, I've been searching for a foundation that is light, but gives coverage...but most of all matches (or somewhat matches) my skin. Another MUA'r mentioned this one...so, I ran out and got it. Well..I LOVE IT!!! I bought it in the Ivory shade (the lightest Revlon made). It matches my very pale, fair pink undertoned skin pretty good...so I'm thrilled! Not too crazy about the jar packaging...but that's something I can live with.
this did nothing for me...i was so bummed too. especially, after all the great reveiws. i got a sample size of this...thankfully didn't buy it. it clumped and actually made my lashes look shorter. plus, the wand actually hurt. it was too spiney for me and the length of the bristles poked my eye. oh, and it's a nightmare to get off. tired everything from lancome bifacial (which, we all know can remove a permanent tattoo it's so good) to jojoba oil. nothing worked...i bascially had to let it "wear off".

It's a small jar that you dip your finger in...which I think is gross. Wish it was a pump. Pricey and ineffective. I've been using it nightly for weeks and have seen no change at all. I've attempted to use it in the AM, but my eye makeup slid right off my face and it caused my waterproof mascara to run. Nightly, it ends up in my eyes...no matter how I apply it. Not impressed. Total waste of money!!!
