I can see how this product gets such mixed reviews. For me, once I figured out how apply properly, the product left a matte finish, which is great for me because I have combination skin with slightly large pores and a pretty even texture. The hitch is, it is not so easy to apply. The formulation is more of a gel-to-powder than creme-to-powder. I think they have changed the formulation from …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Lipstick - Shrinagar

Dec/18/2012

I've been looking for the next best color to Tobago - a ylbb sheer beige plum with some shimmer - which has been discontinued. Shrinagar is not that replacement :) However worn with the Laura Mercer lip treatment, I do enjoy this color. It's plummy and a bit brighter than ylbb, and not overwhelming for fair skinned. I see shimmer in the tube but don't detect it on my lips. :-/ …Read more

Lip Treatments - KORRES Natural Products - Lip Butter - Guava

Dec/28/2008

In general, I'm trying to get away from non-recyclable, non-reclaimed plastic packaging. However, this lip butter is heavenly. I received a tub for Xmas, and I keep it in my office together with my lip brush and I'm using it 4x a day. I had been using Burt's Bees, which is environmentally conscious about the plastic it uses, or using BB's little recyclable metal tin of lip …Read more

Body Scrubs - Bliss - Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar Scrub

Dec/28/2008

I generally like a scrub that you can feel the grit without it being painful, have a mild pleasing scent, and does not have too much oil in it that stays on my skin. Read my other scrubs reviews if you like those things, too. With the Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper, I was expecting to be awakened with the scent, and instead, I could barely tell it was an "orange" scent unless I got …Read more

Concealers - BECCA - Concealer compact

Dec/28/2008

Thankfully for the MUA Boards, did I discover this concealer, and have been using it for almost 3 years. If they discontinue it, I'm sunk. The color palette is much wider than other brands. And I love the compact that comes with a heavier concealer (I use capillaries near my nose) and a lighter texture one (I pat it on gently under my eyes and cover some sun spots on my jawline). In a …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Rene Furterer - Naturia Dry Shampoo

This is a very nice product; it has a gentle "nature" smell. I find it effective, but I prefer the Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo, which is a much better price, as well as using less packaging. However if you don't like the lemony scent of the Blandi, then the Rene Furterer is quite nice.

I like a scrub that you can feel the grit without it being painful, have a mild pleasing scent, and does not have too much oil in it that stays on my skin. Read my other scrubs reviews if you like those things, too. I really love the scent of this - it is refreshing but not overwhelming. This does have a fair amount of oil in it, but for some reason it does not linger on your skin like a …Read more

I like a scrub that you can feel the grit without it being painful, have a mild pleasing scent, and does not have too much oil in it that stays on my skin. Read my other scrubs reviews if you like those things, too. I Love the Philosophy hot salt scrub. I did not end up thinking it was "too hot," like previous reviewers, because I use mine in the shower :) The Amazing Grace scent …Read more

Skincare - Body - Carol's Daughter - Body Aches Bath Salts

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/19/2008

In general I love Carol's Daughter products (try the Ocean Sea Salt Body Scrub - yummy aroma!), but this bath salt left me with an uneasy feeling. It smells great, but part of the product is dark brown lavender petals and they float around the tub with you, and they remain in the tub when you are finished. I will keep my eye out for a Carol's Daughter bath salts without flowers in it …Read more

Treatments (Face) - DERMAdoctor - Faux Fillment Instant Topical Line Filler

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/02/2008

I am going to go with the previous reviewer and try the Elysee, but in the meantime, I have had success with Faux Fillment for the crease between my eyebrows. The Sephora rep recommended this product for me when she saw me looking at another favorite product line that she thought would not be powerful enough for the crease. The difference between this product and others I've tried with …Read more
