I am 36 and I had the double-whammy of wrinkles and acne sprinkled with seasonal skin (dry in the winter and oily in the summer) and my spots always scar. I had started using Fresh's Seaberry Moisturing Oil and, although moisturizing, caused a horrible breakout on my cheeks of bumps that could not be extracted. So I had spots, scabbies, and flaking. I was desperate and went to MakeupAlley …Read more

I was so excited to try this makeup. The Lancome ads were gorgeous and I am on the never-ending hunt for the perfect mascara, but this, sadly, is not it. The one one positive feature is that this mascara smells yummy! Seriously, it smells like honey and my DH even commented on how nice it smelled. But that's where the positives end. No matter the technique, I could not layer this …Read more

This is the lipgloss love of my life.
The color is a very light, creamy pink grapefruit color that is very flattering on my NC32 coloring. I have very pigmented lips and this mutes them without washing me out. Not to mention the consistency is gel-like, not sticky, and has a beautiful shine without glitter. The lasting power is not amazing, but it is a gloss. The applicator is a …

This scent is creamy and acidic at the same time. Very white and floral but also powdery and sweet; the magnolia note is very pronounced. I love the bottle!

On me, the sillage is exceptional and one spritz lasted all day and was not overpowering but definitely noticeable. This is not one of my favorites because I prefer "darker" fragrances (like Midnight Poison and Opium) …

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst - Soft Nude 070 [DISCONTINUED]

I keep trying to make this lipstick work and it just won't! I am a NC35 with light olive complexion and very pigmented lips. I find this lipstick washes me out and it's incredibly streaky and emphasizes every single little flake and crease in your lips. It gives my lips a chalky appearance and would require a great deal of prepping to with lip balms and chapstick to ever come close …Read more

I have been using this product for a few months (which is impressive, in itself) and I really love this lotion! It's not greasy, smells great, and most importantly, doesn't break me out and has definitey improved the clarity of my skin. I recommend applying the lotion and then immediately applying your foundation. The two blend together and creates a really nice …Read more

Feb/20/2011

This is my absolute go-to nude lip color! It has the shine of gloss but the opacity of a lipstick. It is neither orange nor pink so it's flattering for most skin colors. This is also a God-send for those ladies with very pigmented lips that hate layering lipstick and gloss to tame down our very rosy lips. I never by products twice and this has been repurchased at least 3 times. I highly …Read more

Nov/20/2010

OK, in a fit of frustration during an especially dry and flaky lip period, I reached for my trusty tube of Neosporin. Hey, it works to heal cuts and scrapes pretty effectively, so why not my languishing lippies? Lo and behold, the HG of all lip treatments!!!! I swear, this stuff is the ultimate for dry, cracked, painfully chapped lips! A warning: the taste is nasty. Really nasty, but try not …Read more

LOVE THIS COLOR! I have very pigmented lips and I have the darndest time finding a complementary gloss or lipstick (and I hate layering lipstick and gloss). This color tones down my lips to a lovely neutral shade. The mint taste is great, the shine is minimal (a good thing), the price is unbeatable, the packaging is toelrable but the staying power is tragic. If only this would last longer …Read more

Well, like most products that start out so great, this lotion ended up pooping out on me. I actually think it has a nice, light scent and it dissipates very quickly, BUT after about a month of hope and happiness it broke me out and my skin started flaking. So the search continues!
