I LOVE what this does for my oily skin. It does mattify, I haven't broken out from it, and it does moisturize a little, but I cannot get past the smell! I don't use much of it, just on my T-Zone, maybe a pea sized amount, but I smell like I have some sort of a man's aftershave on all day, and in a world of 'scent-free' I just can't get past it. Yes, I know it's …Read more

I really wanted to love this mascara, as I got it as part of a kit. It does really darken and add lots of volume, but unfortunately, even after dabbing the wand before use, it clumps. I can work around this by using a spoolie-type brush. As for adding length, I did see a little but I definitely saw no curl. For the cost, I would have hoped for a better mascara.

HG under eye concealer! This concealer comes in a decent sized tube with a small opening, so it's ultimate from keeping as germ free as possible. Any negative comments must be from people not using the product correctly. This is a thicker concealer, so go easy on it! Those who indicate it is hard/time consuming to apply must be applying way too much. The tiniest of dabs covers the dark …Read more

Pantone has named the color 'Marsala' as the color of 2015, for makeup, clothing, paint, etc.
Sephora is creating a color set, that will be launched on December 26, 2014. I find this color an extremely difficult one to wear on the eyes, especially if you tend to have redder pigmented skin on your eyes. It should be acceptable on some with darker skin for blush and lip color.

I am loving this new product by Dove! I have never bought Dove shampoo, but found out about it through a friend. Her hair always smelled nice (not strong) and was unbelievably shiny. She gave me the name and I went out to buy it. She told me it was in a yellow bottle, or with some sort of yellow on the bottle. It was a bit tricky to find, but all I had to do was unscrew the bottle top and smell …Read more

I have extremely oily skin and usually try to use powder foundation. However, I'm always on the lookout for a foundation that especially in the summer can give me a bit of color/bronze look. This foundation is perfect!

Depending on the amount you use, you can vary between light coverage to very full coverage. I tend to use a small amount and warm it between my fingers to get it a …

Feb/09/2013

I am 55, have very oily skin with large pores, and try to use as little makeup on my skin in order not to clog my pores and cause breakouts and blackheads. I had been using Maybelline's SPF35 BB cream, but I was finding that I could really FEEL it on my skin. It just didn't feel all that comfortable, and by the end of the day I was extremely, extremely oily.


I saw the …

Feb/08/2013

I am 55 with not too many wrinkles anywhere, but I want to keep it that way, so I thought I would try this eye cream because of the SA Retinol in it. In the past I have tried many very expensive eye creams and treatments from Skinceuticals, Jan Marini, DDF, and SkinMedica. None of them has done what the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream has done.


My skin is very oily all …

LOVE this product and will never be without it. It is one of the best moisturizers out there, packed with hyaluronic acid. I have been using this product for over 5 years now and would never be without it. It feels deluxe when you smooth it over your face, and a little goes a long way. I always apply it first and then follow with any other facial treatment or moisturizer. It's a HG for me!

This toner is one of the most ineffective I've tried, right down to the delivery system. I like to use toner on a cotton ball and wipe it over my face. This one is supposed to be sprayed on your face, though they do say you can apply it on a cotton ball. I like my toners to wipe off all of any remaining makeup. This toner does not do that. If you want to go with a Skinceuticals toner, there …Read more
