Moisturizers - Bobbi Brown - Hydrating Gel Cream

Purchased to use as a moisturizer/primer under the new long wear finish compact foundation (at the makeup artisits suggestion). Has a strong herbal smell, and applies nicely. However, after using a few times, it caused breakouts (and I very rarely get a pimple).

Cleansers - Clean & Clear - Makeup Dissolving Foaming Cleanser

Dec/19/2007

I have senstive skin that has a tendency to get clogged pores. I bought this to eliminate using a separate eye makeup remover. It does a pretty good job and only on occasion do I have to use a separate remover for eye makeup. It doesn't dry out my skin or clog my pores.

A nice foaming cleanser for a good price.

I agree with the previous poster, it is a rose/melon color and it goes on smoothly and delivers great shine without the stickiness that a gloss can have. It also has a fine shimmer to it as well and does not have a scent/taste.

The formula is great and I will certainly track down more colors.

Lip Gloss - Urban Decay - XXX shine gloss-ID

ID does look bright sparkly orange in the tube, but once applied (with a lip brush because I don't like the rounded tip applicator on any of these UD shine glosses) the color is a hint of coral with slight glitter. Makes me look finished and it does give the appearance of fuller lips once applied.

As with all of the XXX shine glosses it has a nice minty flavor and is a bit on the …

Palettes - LORAC - Croc Palette [DISCONTINUED]

This is a well constructed palette with very wearable brown shadows and a plummy blush and it really is a great value. That being said, I find that this really is for people that are warm complected. And I also find you need to use a light hand with the blush, it's very pigmented.

This is a deep, deep maroon color creme polish, no sparkle at all. It really does appear very close to black when it is applied with 2 coats. It applies well and it stayed for almost 5-6 days with no chipping when used with Creative Stickey base coat.

Very close to OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark if you can't find that.

I have combination skin and do not suffer from acne or frequent breakouts. I purchased this to see if it would act as a moisturizing daily exfoliant. It comes in a pump bottle and does have a slightly medicinal smell that fades quickly. The texture is a that of a mid-weight lotion (not runny, not thick).

I am almost finished my bottle and only use it at night but I find that it …

Polishes - OPI - Lincoln Park After Dark

This is probably my most favorite polish. It is a truly dark, deep eggplant color that can look black to the untrained eye. I purchased it because I miss Vampire State Building so much I needed a substitute, and while they are not nearly the same color, you get the same general, sophisticated vibe.

Formula wears well and you must be prepared to keep on top of any chipping.

May/04/2006

After reading the reivews I went and purchased the balancing shampoo and the moisturizing conditioner. I was very excited to have scented hair. The bottles are a little user unfriendly, making it a bit hard to squeeze at times. The scent is nice, but I don't find that it lingers all that long. The formulas themselves are ok, but I find they weight the hair down pretty quickly. All in …Read more

May/03/2006

I have many drugstore nailpolish brands, and I saw this for $1.99 and thought it was cheap enough to try out. I purchases Cetus, a sparlkly nude pink. I have to say, it goes on great and it has lasted a week with minor chipping. I used Sally Hansen Fast Dry Top Coat and this polish has lasted longer than Revlon, Jordana and even some of my OPI's. Great color selection from neutrals to …Read more
