Makeup Brushes - Sonia Kashuk - Brush & Sponge Cleanser

1.0

Jan/16/2015

This is much cheaper than most spray-on brush cleaners, but a huge waste of money. Even after spraying tons of product on my brushes, I could still see foundation and concealer on the brushes, which comes out easily when I use a shampoo or face cleanser. No sense in spending 7 bucks plus tax on something that doesn't do what it promises. I have found most of Sonia's products to be …Read more

Eye Shadow - Almay - Almay Intense i Color for Hazel

Apr/03/2011

These are some of the worst eyeshadows I've ever used. Disappointing, because Almay's quality is generally quite high for a drugstore brand, and their eye products are usually excellent for sensitive eyes. This eyeshadow is very powdery and loosely packed, so it's very easy to get some in your eyes (and everywhere else!) when you are applying it. Not good for sensitive eyes. …Read more

Liquid - Bobbi Brown - Luminous Moisturizing Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

fromAprilH

Apr/03/2011

I would recommend Bobbi's Moisture Rich foundation over this one. The Luminous is only slightly more moisturizing than the Moisture Rich, and has a finish that is slightly more dewy and "luminous", but there isn't a huge difference. What is different is that this foundation tends to just sit on top of your skin and never sinks in. You have to be very careful about touching …Read more

Styling Products - Aussie - Aussome Volume Styling Mousse

2.0

fromAprilH

Apr/03/2011

This is an ok styling mousse, but best suited for those who wash their hair daily. I wash mine every 3 days, and by the third day, my hair was disgustingly greasy. This mousse gives you decent, but not exactly "awesome" volume. I would describe it as being middle of the road in terms of the hold and the crunch factor. It's inexpensive, and stocked in most stores that carry the …Read more

Jul/18/2010

Sorry to be the dissenter on this product, but I did not like it at all. The first time I used it, I apparently used too much, even though I thought I was using it sparingly. My hair was a limp, lifeless, greasy mess. I tried it again and only used a dime size, but my hair was still flat and felt gross. When I straighten, I usually let my hair air dry in order to spare it the double damage of …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Clairol - Psssssst Instant Spray Shampoo

Jun/23/2010

I have tried several dry shampoos and this is my favorite. As others have noted, it can be purchased at Walgreens, which for me is very convenient since I have a Walgreens just down the road. It isn't exactly dirt cheap, but compared to the salon brand dry shampoos, it is quite affordable. I don't use this on a regular basis. I use it mostly to prolong blow outs from my salon. My …Read more

Lip Liners - Flirt - Draw Attention Lip Pencil in Come Hither

Mar/26/2010

This pencil is a somewhat cheaper alternative to the popular Spice lip liner sold by Flirt's sister company, MAC, especially if you get it on sale. I got this lip pencil for 20% off which is more than $3 cheaper than a MAC pencil. The regular price is $12, a dollar less than a MAC pencil. Of course it is true that MAC gives you 0.05 oz compared to 0.04 oz, but it you can get the Flirt …Read more

Styling Products - Garnier - Body Boost Volumizing Spray

This is the worst volumizing spray I have ever used. I couldn't get any volume whatsoever out of it. It's not sticky, but it doesn't do anything. It's about as useful as spraying scented water on your hair.

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Washable Mascara

3.0

fromAprilH

Feb/15/2010

This is an ok mascara, not great, but not terrible. I was a huge fan of Maybelline's Illegal Lengths mascara, and am constantly hoping for a new Maybelline mascara that compares. This isn't it. With a bit of effort you do get decent length, but not the "ultimate length" that the ads promise. You are also promised a shiny, "black patent" finish, but this looks …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Length

1.0
Created with Sketch.
fromAprilH

Feb/15/2010

This mascara was a real disappointment. As other reviewers have noted, it takes several coats to even look like you are wearing mascara. If you work hard enough this will define and separate your lashes, but if you are expecting any length, forget it. And after my experience with the original Lash Blast I was expecting dramatic length out of this. I suppose this would be ok for a very natural …Read more
