Shampoo - Alberto VO5 - Volumizer Shampoo

3.0

Jul/29/2016

This isn't a great shampoo but it's not a bad one either.
I like the fragrance: It's such a refreshing change from the fruit cocktail smelling products that have dominated the market for WAY too long. The scent reminds me of the way most shampoos used to smell: Flowers,herbs,maybe a tiny bit of spice.
Lathers generously,rinses clean and doesn't weigh hair …

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Moisture Renew - Vintage Pink

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/25/2016

Rimmel, I will say,makes some really well formulated lipsticks: Moisturizing,great saturation of color and they wear pretty well.
This shade was a bit more purple than I liked and I agree with the previous poster in saying that it reminds me of Nyx Thalia,only Rimmel has more adherence to the lips.

Mascara - RIMMEL - Scandaleyes XXTreme Volume

2.0

Jul/25/2016

This was not a hit for me.
I found it to be really messy: More product on the applicator comes out than necessary. That is easily remedied by wiping the excess off of the wand with tissue.
As far as building volume: No. I didn't notice any thickening of my lashes but I gave it two lippies since it does have good color saturation.

Blush - essence - blush up! Powder Blush - Heat Wave

Jul/25/2016

This is an ok blush. It feels silky,there's little,if any fallout and it's subtle.
However, I picked it up on a whim since it appears or should I say appeared to have a satiny finish. It doesn't. It has a frosted or luminous,pearl like finish to it,which is something I don't care for in makeup. Needless to say that the color I chose was the pink one since warm shades are …

Moisturizers - Pond's - Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/25/2016

I was not satisfied with this at all. It broke me out and made my face itch intermittently. I am putting this down to the AHA's in this product. It's heavily perfumed,which is a big turnoff for me.
I gave it one lippie because of the packaging.
At first it absorbs quickly but within three hours my face was greasy.
The product is labeled 'won't clog pores' …

Lip Treatments - eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Strawberry Sorbet

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/24/2016

I found this product to be an excellent moisturizer for the lips. It smells great. The price is pretty fair. So what's wrong with it?
The packaging! It's really inconvenient. I don't feel that it offers a practical method for application since it is shaped like a globe. The screw top is annoying to say the least. Sticks have been around forever and are easier to use and take …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Calamine Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/22/2016

Calamine lotion has been around for years. I have used it for everything from mosquito bites to poison sumac to poison ivy and with always incredibly positive results: It calms down angry,inflamed and itchy skin conditions and seems to draw out impurities much like clay masks do.
I had no idea people use it for cosmetic reasons but if it works for that purpose,more power to you.
Truly …

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Unstoppable Eyeliner - all shades

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/22/2016

This eyeliner isn't that bad. However it's not so remarkable either.
Unstoppable isn't exactly unstoppable: I would say a good five to six hours of wear before you notice a bit of fading on your upper lash line; more so if you use it for your water line.
The pigment isn't particularly deep; essentially it's more like a medium depth which is more subtle for …

Foundations - REVLON - PhotoReady Liquid Foundation

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/21/2016

This was not even close to a good foundation. I was really hoping that it would give me the airbrushed effect that it 'claims' to give (Hence the name Photoready.) but it did nothing but add sparkling bits of material on my face.
I don't know about anyone else but I do not want my foundation to contain shimmer or glitter since this defeats the whole purpose of what foundation …

Foundations - L.A. COLORS - liquid makeup

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/18/2016

L.A. Colors has a lot to offer for a little price.
This foundation is sheer, more like a tinted moisturizer in terms of coverage.
Although everyone's skin is different, I have sensitive skin and this didn't break my skin out nor irritate it.
You could very well build it to a light cover level and the nice thing is that it won't look cakey.
Leaves a satin type …
