Lipstick - wet n wild - MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick

1.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I really wanted to like the two that I had - Give Me Mocha, and Behind the Bleachers. The Give Me Mocha was just a bit too light and orangey for me(although while still wet the color did look good), and I thought the Behind the Bleachers shade was going to be more red and less pink. But onto more about this product - it is DRYING to the MAX, even with a bit of lubrication underneath. I ended up …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream

1.0

Jul/21/2018

Yes I know this gets absolute raves all over the place, but for me, this cream was not hydrating enough, even with skin that isn’t super-super dry. I had bought a travel-size tube for my husband to try - he ALMOST likes it for his feet but that’s about it. Another thing I really didn’t like about it was the fact that while it does feel rich going on, after a few minutes everything feels tight and …Read more

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Concealer

5.0

Apr/28/2018

I've gone through a bunch of tubes of this in the last several years, in NC20 which for me is a shade lighter than my foundations(NC30 mixed with a little NC25 as I'm right in between shades). Anyhow, a MAC SA suggested this to me and he was right on as I was looking at another one of their concealers. This has a beautiful texture, not cakey at all, and the finely-milled minerals in it …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Fit Me Dewy/Hydrate/Luminous and Smooth Foundation (formerly Fit Me)

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/12/2016

I REALLY wanted to like this foundation, as I've read such rave reviews. Plus I was looking for something less-expensive than MAC StudioSculpt foundation(I know, a different type of product than the FitMe Dewy and Smooth). Anyhow, just wearing the FitMe Dewy and Smooth ONCE irritated my face, and the fragrance was truly terrible. WHY WHY do manufacturers think we want heavily-fragranced …Read more

Lip Gloss - Maybelline New York - Color Elixir (All Shades)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/21/2014

I'm new to liquid lipsticks but I think this class of product is just what the doctor ordered for mature lips! I just picked up one of these, in Intoxicating Spice, a beautiful browned-down red with a bit of berry in it. Although it goes on like a gloss, it settles on one like a cross between a lipstick and a gloss and is very hydrating. The applicator picks up just enough product to for a …Read more

Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - Advanced Haircare - Total Repair 5 Shampoo

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/30/2014

Usually I'm not always a fan of sulfate shampoos, but this seems to be a good one. Since I've stepped up my cardio workouts, and sweat even more, I do need more cleaning power than a sulfate-free shampoo can give me. Anyhow, this fills the bill without being too drying or stripping. Color retention seems to be better too, and great shine and body for my aging, color-treated, wavy-curly …Read more

Cleansers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Raw Honey

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/09/2014

Just starting to use raw honey in combo with extra-virgin coconut oil as a cleanser, since even CeraVe and Aquaglycolic Cleansers were starting to dry me out. I already had the coconut oil(Trader Joe's - exc. quality and great price), and just got Trader Joe's raw honey. I've been mixing equal parts of both in a tiny tiny bowl - just enough for a few applications while I'm …Read more

Lips - Jordana Cosmetics - Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/17/2014

I bought the one in Terra Crave a few days ago, my very first venture into the newer chubby crayon formats for lipsticks out there. While I loved the color going on, for some reason my lips really turn a strange brighter pink after it's been on for more than a few minutes when using this, which does NOT go with my warmer complexion. But I've had other things do the same thing on my lips …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/03/2014

I must be the odd one out, save for a very few reviewers, which I just noticed again after checking again. Now I know that I wasn't alone with this product.
Don't get me wrong, I love the other CeraVe products that I DO use, like the AM and PM lotions, as well as their Hydrating Cleanser - all three are keepers. So I had high hopes for the eye cream especially when I saw glowing …

Foundations - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD High Definition Foundation

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/26/2014

I had a generous sample of this, being all excited about trying an HD foundation as these are supposed to be great for mature skin and was suggested to me by a Sephora SA after they did the SkinIQ(for foundation matching). Not my skin, although I did like the initial finish and all, but I found that it kind of disappeared over the course of the day and got greasy besides. This broke me out in 3 …Read more
