I had never, ever experienced the pilling of a product until I tried this. Good grief, this is terrible. It balls up, rolls around. and collects in my brows and hairline. Very disappointing from a brand that's so highly touted otherwise.

Treatments (Eye) - CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream

Oct/31/2018

I don't expect miracles from an eye cream (or any product, really). So I went into this expecting nothing more than good hydration, and that's what I get from it. No irritation or anything like that, but I dont have particularly sensitive skin, either. And it's very reasonably priced. So I'm quite pleased. Unless something miraculous comes along, I'll probably stick with …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara

5.0

Jan/01/2018

This is the only mascara I've purchased for a couple of years now, at least. Lengthens, volumizes, holds a curl, doesn't flake. It can be used lightly for every day, or built up for more drama. I've received some other mascaras in Ipsy boxes, and I like them and use them sometimes. But I keep coming back to Million Lashes, and as of now, it will continue to be the only mascara I …Read more

I wish that where we select "Would you buy this product again?", that "oh HELLLLLL no!!!" was an option.

After all the infomercials and all the presentations on QVC, I caved and bought one of the sampler sets from QVC that included the foundation, mineral veil, and bronzer. With glee and zest, I cracked that puppy open and swirled, tapped, and buffed my way to an …

Mascara - Jordana Cosmetics - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

Sep/27/2012

This is the kind of product that really makes you question the sanity of anyone who insists on buying high-end mascara.

I'll be the first to admit that left to my own devices, I never in a million years would have given this a glance at Walgreens, just because of the stupid low price of $2.99. But my mom had been using it and, as a former Benefit mascara user, declared Jordana the …

Crème - REVLON - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

4.0

Sep/25/2012

The liquid Colorstay is my HG foundation, and the standard by which I judge all others. It lasts all day on my absurdly oily skin, it covers everything I need to cover (some discoloration and a zit every now and then), it doesn't sink into my pores, and I don't need to use a primer to make it look good or last. But, as any good MUAer will understand, just because I have a HG …Read more

Liquid - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

May/09/2012

I have never found a foundation that works as well for me as Revlon Colorstay. It is the standard by which I judge all other foundations. I'd heard great things about Mat Velvet, I had a Sephora gift card burning a hole, and I have that constant burning desire to find the next "miracle" product. So I got a bottle of MV. And I've gotta tell ya, it is every bit as good as CS …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - KORRES Natural Products - Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Face Primer

May/09/2012

Let me start by saying that I am not a primer person. I don't like the extra step in my routine, and I've never found a primer that's really worth the extra time under my primary foundation, Revlon Colorstay, which performs excellent for me on its own. (With the exception of UD Pore Perfection. But even that, I only use around my nose, and I don't use it daily.) But, I got a …Read more

Lips - L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/09/2012

This is a nice product. It's very smooth, feels good on the lips, and applies evenly. Leaves a nice, glossy finish. I prefer sheer colors on my lips, so these fit the bill nicely for me. They're nothing like the Revlon Lip Butters, which are more full-coverage color. I have four of these balms. The nude one is a slightly pinkish nude, and it is truly nude on me. But the color is …Read more

Eyeliner - Buxom - Lashliner - Suede

Let me start by saying that I did not purchase this liner in hopes of it conditioning my lashes. Seems too gimmicky for something like an eyeliner. (If it did that for you, more power to you.) I bought this just for the color...a nice, dark, rich brown. Just shy of being black. At first, all was well. The texture was thick and like a putty, yet still went on pretty smoothly. Good color payoff …Read more
