Foundations - wet n wild - Photo Focus Foundation

I bought this foundation because of all of the overwhelmingly positive reviews on YouTube.

It's very inexpensive, but still a waste of my money.

In general I would say that I have nice skin. I'm in my early forties, but have very few lines and in general am very proud of how nice my skin still looks. Until I put on this foundation. Suddenly, my skin looks …

Okay, so I'm going to be devil's advocate here. I saw this product and stopped in my tracks. It's one of the coolest looking things and most interesting, unique ideas in a while. And the colours are gorgeous.

My concern was the red. What the hell do I do with red shiny eye shadow? Doesn't it make you look dead/sick/tired? Then I tried it. It is unique, and …

I had high hopes for this. I am at an age where for the first time, wrinkles and their prevention are on my mind. So...I was looking forward to a much loved product doing fabulous things for me.

I used it once and it gave me pimples. I thought it was a freak coincidence, but as I continued to use it, my skin became continuously worse. So I stopped, very sadly and gave the product …

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Pure & Free Baby SPF 60

Jul/20/2009

I've been searching for a great sunscreen for my face for a very long time. I have dry skin - so I can't wear the dry touch, but don't like looking greasy - so many regular kinds are not great for me either. I like high level protection, but don't like my face to be white. I prefer no scent, and the simplest formula I can find. I"m also a big fan of titanium dioxide …Read more

I am quite amazed at this product. I read reviews on the regenerist day cream, but when I tried it, I broke out. Considering I'm way past adolescence and barely had pimples even then...I was not pleased so...I was hesitant to try the serum. But I"m so glad I did!

It glides on to my skin effortlessly and add such a sense of moisture, that my skin is thanking me. As for …

This lipstick has been a miracle for me. It was first recommended to me by a makeup artist, and I"m so glad because I don't I would have noticed it on my own. He told me to wear it with the plum liner and it creates the prettiest mouth. I am an actor and I am superstitious about wearing this colour to my auditions. It's the only colour I know will make my skin glow. I also …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Quo - Bronzer Brush

Feb/12/2008

I believe this is the right category for the brush I'm reviewing. It's the one with darker bristles near the base which get lighter at the ends. This brush is like velvet on my skin. It's almost too nice to use in public without blushing...bad joke. But it glides powder over my cheeks with such ease, I only need one sweep per side. The distribution seems to end up perfect. Hard to …Read more

I just bough thtis so it's really unfair to write a review so soon, but I must say, I have been searching for a new foundation for quite some tie and this one gets me excited. I am very lucky and have small pores, but not so lucky in that I have insanely dry skin and must find something that is kind to the flakes always waiting to happen. I say boo to the velvet mat foundation regardless …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - BADgal Lash

So...I love this mascara. Love it. Love. It. Why the lippie off? Well...because I can't afford it and that is very sad...actually, that would have been two lippies off. I took one off because they now sell a half sized tube (think they got the "expensive" memo?), for less than half the price. In Canada, a full tube is a whopping $25, and half tube is a gentler $10. So, only …Read more

Feb/12/2008

I wish there was a "maybe" option with the "will buy this again" question. I might. Probably not. Partly because this will probably never run out. it is Vaseline. Petroleum Jelly. Sounds gross and I'm confused as to why people think putting something that is a derivative of what we put on our cars is a good thing but...the earth was flat for the longest time too …Read more
