This lotion is fantastic. I had ugly dry patches on my elbows that no regular body lotion or cream would get rid of it. I used this once and the dry patches were gone! I use this at night all over, and my skin feels so smooth. I took off two lippies for the packaging but the plastic bottle is a hard plastic. It's hard to squeeze to get the product out, and sometimes the bottle slips out of …Read more

Styling Products - Oribe - Dry Texturizing Spray

I have wanted to try this famous spray forever. I was so excited to get this in my BirchBox. Unfortunately, it smells so incredibly strong and gross that I couldn't evaluate the actual texturizing effects; I had to wash it out immediately. The smell gave me a headache immediately, even after trying to offset it with dry shampoo and a blast from my blowdryer, and then pulling my hair back in …Read more

Sonia Kashuk's products are great, so I gave this loose powder a try. I like a lot; it fades by mid-afternoon, leaving me a bit shiny, but not enough for me to keep powder in my bag to reapply. (Full disclosure: I'm also lazy.) My problem is with the packaging. It's a standard container with holes at the top where you shake more powder out. Maybe I got a lemon, but it's …Read more

Cleansers - Boots - expert sensitive gentle cleansing wash

This is the best simple cleanser for the morning! I can use it all year round and it doesn't exacerbate my summer oiliness or my winter dryness. One pump is plenty to gently clean my face from the previous night's treatments and prep for the day's makeup. It also cleans my makeup brushes really well.

This is possibly the most disgusting cosmetic product I've ever tried. The stench was so overpowering that as soon as I applied it, I got a headache and frantically washed my lips to get it off. I couldn't keep it on long enough to judge whether I even liked the color, but it doesn't matter; I would never be able to wear this.

This body wash is amazing! I have dry skin, and the cooler temperatures aren't helping. I had a dry, flaky patch of skin on my elbow that would not go away, so after reading a great review of this, I bought it to try. After just two days, my dry patch was gone! After three days, my skin everywhere felt so much smoother and soft. I'm in love! I wish the price was cheaper, but since this …Read more

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Eyestudio ColorTattoo Leather 24HR Cream Gel Eye Shadow- Creamy Beige

This is the best eyeshadow! I use a primer and base color before applying this creamy shadow with a brush, and it lasts for hours--like, 16 hours--without creasing or fading. It's the best! I took off two lippies for the packaging. It's housed in a jar with a screw-top lid, which means it's easier for air to get inside and dry the cream out. I'm not sure what packaging would …Read more

These are amazing! I keep these in my purse so that I can fix runny mascara or smudged eye shadow throughout the day. They are easy and quick to use and--best of all--don't leave any residue behind. I have sensitive eyes and wear contacts, and I have no problem using these. Love!

I bought this because I have an addiction to trying new foundations. I think it does a great job: it offers light to medium coverage; it doesn't make my T-zone terribly shiny; it also doesn't highlight my dry patches; and it doesn't settle into fine lines. I apply it with a foundation brush and get nice coverage.

That said, I didn't feel like it was amazing …

I received a generous sample of this in my September Allure beauty box, and I was excited to try it. I have longer-than-shoulder-length hair that's oily and flat except for the ends, which are dry and slightly damaged due to my recent switch to ombre color. My usual concern for a leave-in conditioner is whether it will make my hair greasy as the day goes on.

The packaging for this …
