Top/Base Coats -Essie - Good to Go! The Fastest Drying Top Coat
princessleah 1/10/2013 7:53:00 PM
Awful! Essie Good-To-Go made my nail polish peel off in full "sheets" within a few hours. I tried it with two different nail colors just to make sure it wasn't the color. The top coat behaved exactly the same both times. It really DOES dry fast, but it's absolutely not with anything when it can't even last a few hours. At $10+, I will be returning this to my Ulta store.
I could stare at this color in it's packaging forever, it's so pretty! BUT...on my eyes it looks incredibly red. SO BUMMED! I am quite fair-skinned with pink undertone, so that's likely why. One added note...I wish Urban Decay shadows came with an applicator! (I always lose the ones I buy separately, lol.)
I really wonder if I got a bad batch or something because most people seem to like this product. I definitely do NOT like it. It's such a great idea, but it is so incredibly "gloopy" that I cannot even use it. It leaves little "balls" of mascara on my lashes and they all get stuck together. Then, trying to remove it was really hard and it left flakes all over under my eyes. I use makeup remover pads and it was still very hard to get this mascara off...I had to rub hard, which left my eyes a little sore! Also, for the price, the tube needs to be much, much, MUCH bigger -- the full size in this product is the is actually about HALF the size of a mascara SAMPLE (yes, sample) that we get in a GWP. It's hard for me to believe that this is a Clinique product!
Clinique just discontinued this product and I am so bummed! I have been using it every day over my foundation for the last 10+ years. (AND Clinique also discontinued my Superfit foundation!) I used GLOW 02, and yes it is shimmery, but I was still able to use it everyday. On me, the shimmer isn't noticable unless I am in bright sunlight (which I don't do often!). BRING IT BACK CLINIQUE!!!!
Misc Beauty Tools -Rembrandt - 2-Hour Whitening Kit

I bought this at Walgreen's when they had BOGO FREE Rembrandt products. One box was $25 so it was a great deal! However, that's the ONLY good thing about this product. I did my top teeth only at first so I could compare the results with my bottom teeth. THIS PRODUCT DID ABSOLUTEY NOTHING! Absolutely.Nothing.At.All. I am incredibly disappointed that it didn't even make the teensy-weensiest bit of difference. I know it works for some people, but to me, this one was a scam and a complete waste of money.

I guess I am the minority! I went to The Body Shop to get this because it has rave reviews, but to me it smells "cheap". I am not a fan.
This smells pretty good...I used to wear this back in the 80's! I think I like it now just because of the memories. :)
Lip Treatments -Clinique - Superbalm Tinted Lip Treatment in Grape Tint

The superbalm is excellent, although the "grape tint" doesn't leave ANY "tint" on my lips. I am slightly disappointed. I'd buy again just because the balm itself is so soooooooooothing. :)
These ROCK! I cannot believe that my frown lines are smoother! There are still there, of course, but much, much smoother. I got them ob eBay, so they were a great price as well! When you open the package, you wouldn't guess that these little papery-cardboardy triangles will help wrinkles. Hats off to Frownies!
MY FAVORITE! I was hooked when I first smelled this - it's VERY unique and not overbearing. Soft, sexy, feminine. I guess it does have a slight powdery scent, but it makes it so "soft". I also like Miracle, Sensi, Tresor, Deep Red...all these are rather soft scents. There's nothing worse than an overpowering scent...like women's Eternity. Ew!
Liquid -Clinique - Superfit Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

LOVE IT! I used to wear Loreal line minimizing foundation...THOUGHT it was good until I tried this one. I got it because it's supposed to be better in humid areas which I was looking for because I was going on my honeymoon cruise. That was almost three yaers ago and I will wear NOTHING else.
I love this mascara! It seems clumpy for a while when it's new, though...but I am able to get all those little teeny lashes I didn't know existed! Yay!
GREASY GREASY GREASY! You have to have ALOT of time to run around naked because you will be greasy for a long time! Ew! It may be okay for others, but I felt "slimy" with this ishy stuff.
I love this color! It is so fun to wear "out" for a night on the town. The bottle is pretty small, however, but I like this product more than Maybelline Wet Shine.
