I have this one in the shade "Taupe" and it's the best for cool blondes! No warmth in this one at all so none of that weird tint that some blonde products have (that almost make your brows look irritated). I have the L'Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper Brow Gel Mascara (can you think of a longer name??) but like this one even more, because the Ardell is more neutral. The …Read more

Gah! This stuff is sooo clumpy on me! It just gunks on your lashes and doesn't brush through properly so you're left with splotches of mascara on your lashes. The formula is possibly OK - the smell is reminiscent of a L'Oreal mascara I've had in the past that had a slight chocolatey scent, but the brush is awful. I may try another brush to see if it improves the …Read more

I have to agree with lindsayheather below. This looks gold in the pan but on me applies almost invisibly so you're just left with a gorgeous sheen. I don't actually *see* much gold at all. I'm NC30-ish (NC35/C4 in Studio Fix powder). As mentioned, this is rather hard pressed and there is practically no fall-out. Easily applied sheerly with a soft brush or built up with a …Read more

These seemed to be very limited in release and I only happened to stumble upon one in a clearance bin at London Drugs. It seemed to fly right under the radar of most social media. Not much info out there on these at all. IF you like blingy shiny metallic highlighters, you need this. Of all my highlighters, I find this one the brightest of them all. I barely have to apply any for it to …Read more

So far, so good. I've lately developed an interest in full cover foundation (not that I even need one, but for those days you want to look flawless...). I'm glad I did a little research into the shades. I'm NC30-35 and wear 220 in Maybelline Fit Me Matte and 105 in L'Oreal Infallible Matte and would have almost bought this in 220 as well but discovered 128 would be a better …Read more

May/09/2018

Nice but not ground breaking. I have "Stars & Stories" (like a champagne mauve pink) and "1 Second to Mars" (golden pink/peachy). The shades are pretty, easy to apply and blend quickly with fingers. They last all day and aren't too *too* metallic (and can be toned down with a powder eye shadow over top). They're nice to have and play with but they aren't …Read more

One of those rare breeds of mascara that's lovable right out of the gate. Unlike a lot of mascaras that require a week or two to perform optimally, this one gives nice length and volume as soon as you start to use it. The wand is a gentle curve with traditional (not plastic) bristles that gradually get smaller towards the tip, making it great to get into those tiny lashes on the bottom and …Read more

My original purchase of this was in 1996. A tiny tube of yellow super sticky 'balm' that was nearly impossible to spread on the intended area (sore nips). It also stinks.
Fast forward to 2018. I still have that original tube so when my lips were getting super dry this winter, I thought I'd break it out again (wow, I still had it laying around!) after seeing it mentioned …

I'm pretty impressed with this powder! Keeps me shine free for hours! I'm not super oily though but if you're normal/combo, this is really nice. I read that someone else found it to have a bit of an 'air brush' effect and on me it does seem to blur lines a bit. It just give a clean even look. I do prefer a matte finish so if you like a glow, this won't be your …Read more

i had to review this since I mentioned it in a concealer review. My original reason for purchasing this was because I'd started Retin A (0.025%) and wanted something to combat any resulting dryness. I love that it's got hyaluronic acid and ceramides, and because of the added silicones, it's silkier than vaseline alone. I don't have an issue with silicone or vaseline …Read more
