Treatments (Eye) - CLARINS - Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/25/2016

I have repurchased this eye cream 3 times and have tried countless eye creams like many of you. When I get a sample, I stop using Clarins and try the sample. I have also bought and abandoned other top Paula's choice and MUA eye creams and home remedies, although I have not tried La Mer or anything over $125. For me personally, my eyes overall are visibly better-looking and youthful when I …Read more

Shampoo - Alterna Haircare - Caviar Anti-Aging Moisture Shampoo

5.0

Jun/25/2016

I tested the shampoo and conditioner as a set, alternating between this set and others and blow drying my hair with no product in it. My hair is highlighted blonde but otherwise not really fine or thick, about medium. When my hair consistently dried like silk and hence took about a decade off my hair's appearance compared with the others, I used it several days in a row to see if it would …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Perricone MD - Advanced Eye Area Therapy

Dec/13/2014

Update: I gave this five lippies, and now I'm changing it to four. It didn't last long enough, and when I tried Clarins, that one was a lot better. However, since I was impressed with it once, and I am picky, I may switch back and change again, as it's good to alternate.

I didn't notice a big difference until about a month in, and then I really noticed a difference …

Primer/ Corrector - CLARINS - Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate

4.0

Dec/10/2011

I have not bought the full-sized version, but got a sample that I've used several times. I'm not a fan of Clarins, but this diminished my forehead lines significantly enough that I felt compelled to write a review. I've tried Neutrogena, Estee Lauder, and Cetaphil cream and have seen no difference, but after four applications saw a big difference with this. Now, I can't say …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Larger Than Life

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/18/2011

Thank you, MakeupAlley, for your advice on NARS lip gloss!! Normally I would not pay this much for lip gloss, but I have to say, the Larger Than Life line of NARS gloss is well worth the money!! (I recommend trying on different shades until you find ones that suit you, but I intend to buy this in at least one more shade so this is a general review.) The color I bought in this line is called …Read more

Eye Primer - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Eden

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/06/2011

The Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer is the one product I never knew I needed but I look so much better since I've started using it, because my eyeshadow stays put flawlessly all day with it! I got a sampling of the colored versions, and I have to say, all of them were suprisingly flattering, but if you're a pale blonde like me, Eden is really beautiful on and goes with all eye shadows …Read more

Powder - Neutrogena - Mineral Sheers Compact Powder Foundation (All Shades)

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/06/2011

Ugh! I thought this looked kind of powerdy and weird on but didn't realize how awful this product was until one day I had on one of my other foundations and put this one on as touch-up. It looked NASTY yellow compared to the other foundation, and made me look like I had a bad case of jaundice. This looks really cheap and dusty. I don't want to seem like an ad by telling you about any …Read more

Skincare - Body - Murad - Firm and Tone Dietary Supplement Pack

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/06/2011

I can only comment on the Firm and Tone Serum, which does not appear in its own category on MUA. I've tried several creams/serums, including Clarins and Nivea and this one works the best by far. Yes, it does work, very well. When I use the same massage, diet and exercise with other products, I can definitely tell that this one improves my skin a lot, and the others don't seem to do …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - CLARINS - High Definition Body Lift

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/06/2011

I've tried many creams - some work, some don't - and this one most definitely does not work at all. First of all, any time you put something creamy/wet on your skin, you will feel a slight cooling sensation. That doesn't mean it's "working," only that it's wet, and in this case, minty. The serious downsides of this particular product are not only that it's …Read more
