Cleansers - Philosophy - The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash

4.0

Oct/04/2011

I have to preface this review by saying that Philosophy items are really hit or miss for me. But this one is a real WIN in my opinion! This cleanser includes diatomaceous earth which is what is providing the grainy scrubbing texture. Its very fine and not at all too overly abrasive so you could feasibly use it every day. If your skin can handle it, try this with the Clarisonic--amazing! I would …Read more

Cleansers - Jurlique - Purifying Cleansing Lotion

Jul/22/2011

I am on the fence about this cleanser. I'm pretty "meh" about it. This is a non-lathering cleanser and its very very thin so its a bit like putting a runny lotion on your face and trying to cleanse it with it.

I use a seperate eye makeup remover so I can't speak to how it takes off eye makeup. I can't image it working well for that though.

The …

Powder - PUR Cosmetics - Pressed Powder Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

As much as I hate to admit it, I actually kind of like this. Kind of. I can use the lightest shade which by looking at it in the pan I thought it would be too dark for me, but when its applied, it goes on lighter and matches quite well for me. I like that its not a yellow undertone but more of a true pink porcelain shade, which many brands do not do.

The base of this product is mica …

Crème - Urban Decay - Surreal Skin Cream to Powder Foundation

Jul/11/2011

This review is for the color "HAZE" which is described as "very fair with pink undertones". I bought this on the Urban Decay website, sight unseen, when I was told by an Urban rep that this color would match me, when I lamented that the colors that are sold in store are not fair enough for me.

However, upon receiving it, one look at it and I could tell this was no …

Eyeliner - Bourjois - Liner Feutre - 11 Noir

Jul/04/2011

I bought this without having the luxury of trying it on first. Boujois was all very deeply discounted at Ulta and the testers were missing on many of the items. But these were only around $3 so I bought two, since I use a liquid pretty much every day.

But unfortunately, that was a big waste of money. These just do not compare to other HE ones I am used to using (Napoleon Perdis …

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Pen Eye Liner

Jul/04/2011

I bought two of these at Ulta because they were BOGO 50% off. I had been looking for a cheaper alternative to the Napoleon Perdis Neo Noir liner (and previous to that, the LORAC liner). But after swatching on my hand once, it was clear that there was absolutely no comparison.

These NYX ones are ok if you just need something cheap and don't care about things like pigmentation but …

Makeup Brushes - Cinema Secrets - Professional Brush Cleaner

Jun/21/2011

Let me count the ways that I love thee! I have been on a hunt for the perfect brush cleaner. The Ulta one makes me cough every time I use it (what does that tell you?), the Parian Spirit smells like orange cleaner and leaves a film on my synthetic brushes, the Napoleon Perdis one is just gaggingly strong of lavender, the Vincent Longo one is OK but smells TOO strong of vanilla, the Smashbox one …Read more

Eyeliner - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner with Double-Ended Brush

May/29/2011

I wanted to like this, I really did. The black was super pigmented, the dry time was pretty average to other gel liners of its ilk.

But I really have a problem with brands claiming that something is "waterproof" and clearly never field testing prior to its release to ensure that the product is what it claims. Did anyone at the company actually check to see how this liner …

Stick - Kevyn Aucoin - The Radiant Reflection Foundation

1.0

May/28/2011

Woah, what can I say about this? First of all, this is probably the absolute WORST foundation I have ever used in my life. And coming from someone with nearly 8 years cosmetics sales experience and makeup artistry experience, that is saying a lot since I have used a gajillion products in my time.

I am quite an expert on stick foundations as they are are my favorite medium to use for …

Treatments (Eye) - Peter Thomas Roth - Lashes To Die For Nightime Eyelash Treatment

Apr/13/2011

Um, no. Waste of money. I received this as gratis when I worked for a retailer that sells PTR so thankfully I did not pay for this or I'd be seriously pished off because this did jack squat nothing.

I have been using mine pretty regularly for WEEKS now and sometimes even 2x a day. I know the packaging says to use at night but honestly, I don't think its is going to make one …
