Am I the only one who read all the negative reviews and thought "Oh I'm SURE it'll work great for me!!!"?? Well it didn't.
I agree with alot of the other reviewers that the applicator/gloves/everything in the box totally blows. And one thing I do not get is why the developer is not already in the actual applicator. Instead you have to squeeze it in yourself....and …

Lip Gloss - Urban Decay - Lip Junkie

I have three of these.....I have "Red Light" which is shimmery red, I have "Love Junkie" which on me is a sheer darkish plummy red, and I have "Strip" which is a medium mauve nude (and my favorite of the three!).
Red Light was the very first red lip product I have ever bought and I'm quite pleased. It doesn't make my teeth yellow and it has a …

Styling Products - L'Oreal Paris - EverStyle alcohol free strong hold styling spray

Aug/06/2012

Yuck. I really wanted to like this since I adore the smell (kind of a beachy vanilla scent) but it makes my already fine hair very limp. If I use too little or it doesn't hold at all....if I use just enough or too much it actually makes my hair WET. I mean, wet as in just-out-of-the-shower wet. It even made my basic ponytail look horrible. Now it does make my hair shiny, but what good …Read more

Lip Gloss - Victoria's Secret - Very Sexy Lip Gloss in Wet

4.0

Beautiful color.....reminds me of Chanel Giggle but a bit pinker, and also reminds me of my HG Bobbi Brown Nude gloss but slighty brighter Wet is a neutral mauvey/pinkish/brownish color with no shimmer and a glossy finish. Staying power is not as good as the Chanel or BB but it is way less expensive and perfect for an everyday natural look. I'd definitely repurchase and already have.

Eye Shadow - NARS Cosmetics - Ashes to Ashes

Ashes to Ashes is exactly what I'd hoped MAC's Satin Taupe would be, although it is a bit lighter. I seem to be in the minority, but I could not get Satin Taupe to work for me. It was so incredibly hard to blend that I gave up after several tries. Not Ashes to Ashes.
It's a little sheer like previous reviewers mention, but it is buildable. It's a beautiful taupey brown …

Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Mega gloss- True Star

3.0

Nov/26/2010

I really had high hopes for this shade...it seemed like something I'd really like. It's a medium to dark brownish bronzy color with a hint of mauve and since I'm really into earthy neutrals at the moment it seemed perfect. Unfortunately the shade and the overall frostiness of it did not work for me at all. It is a very frosty/shimmery shade, which looks amazing on some people but …Read more

Lip Gloss - Bobbi Brown - Nude Gloss

I am not a true fan of lip gloss, but BB's nude gloss is the only one I've bought over and over. I even have backups in my makeup case! The color on me is a gorgeous medium mauvey-brown with zero shimmer but alot of shine. It actually looks like my lips but more polished and classy. Yes, this gloss is very sticky, but that's why this gloss stays put for so long. It lasts forever on …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Satin Lipstick - Twig

Sep/14/2010

I usually adore brownish lipsticks but this one just did not work for me. After I put it on I looked in the mirror and immediately felt transported back to the 90's. On me it turned a very icky brownish/reddish color that made me feel (and look...eek!) about 10 years older.I was hoping for a browny/pinky/neutral color but I don't think my mauvey pigmented lips can pull it off.
I …

Lip Liners - Bobbi Brown - Heather

4.0

Aug/25/2010

Another great lip liner from Bobbi. Heather is described on the website as a medium pink grey, and I find that to be very accurate. My lips are pinkish mauve, and this lip liner makes them just a shade or two darker and cooler. Very neutral, but I am really into that type of thing right now. I usually don't like pinks, but the slight grey tone in it makes it perfectly wearable for me. I …Read more

Lip Liners - Bobbi Brown - Creamy Lip Liner- COCOA

5.0

Aug/25/2010

I picked this up with BB's lip color Cocoa and liked the liner much better. It's a stunning neutral shade, brownish beigy plum, and it makes my makeup look polished and natural. It doesn't wash me out either or make me look like a corpse. It's kind of dry, but I use a good lip balm before applying it. I actually use this shade by itself...I line my lips first, fill them in …Read more
