One more rave for this little gem. Who would buy any other liplining pencil after trying this? I apply it lightly over a line of clear balm, then smudge with finger or lipbrush. Just enough color without advertising that I've got something on my lips.

I've been on the same pencil for years - but maybe should buy one more?

It sharpens well too - with my Lancome …

I can't rave enough about this. I use only a small amt ( two peas) for my thick, coarse hair which is somewhere in between a 2A and 2b type curl. the smell is not at all unpleasant and doesn't linger long at all. I blow my hair dry on cold setting and it comes out smotth, slightly wavy and NO lingering fell of something in the hair.

For 9 bucks, I think it'll really …

Cleansers - Aveeno - Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash

this is my current morning face wash in the shower. It's not at all drying.
The price is sure right and the bottle is non-breakable.

I have not tried it at night tho to remove makeup. It's probably as good tho as so many others designed to take it off.

No matter how much I rinse and rub with a washcloth, there is still a greasy residue left. It seems to remove makeup pretty well, but I can't stand that less than clean feeling. I gave it a fair try over the course of a week.
I only bought a 2 oz. size and am glad for doing that. Off to a thrift shop it goes.

Treatments - Julep - oxygen nail treatment

Aug/24/2015

This came in a QVC try-me kit and it was more than awful. I tested it on two nails and went no further. It was streaky as all get out, thick and uneven, and the brush was too thick too, I thought. I may try to recycle this by adding some other deep pink polish to it ( I abhor waste), but it may not be salvageable. Maybe it was the pale pink color - perhaps a darker shade wouldn't have …Read more

One lippie is too kind on this one. No-tug is a laugh.

It came in a kit from QVC - so MAYbe it was old stock they wanted to unload. However, I tried twice to apply this stuff - like black cement. It made a very rough, dry, uneven line and there was NO way to smudge it without ripping off my eyelid. The was nothing 'gel' about it. I tried to cover it with an old …

Lotions/ Creams - NIVEA - Soft Moisturizing Creme

Aug/14/2015

I have to admit - I bought the small trial sizes for the container. All plastic, screw on top, perfect for travel. .Perfect for a dab of cream, lotion, even some tiny earrings.
The cream was surprisingly nice to use - I use it on arms and legs as I don't really want to mess with my facial routine.

No breakouts, of course. I especially liked the easy spreadability.

I found it impossible to get anything but a harsh line out of this stuff. And once it's on, it's like trying to smudge cement. Even after heavy duty removal techniques, this stuff was still a bit visible the next morning. Maybe that's the only way to use it? The brush was so-so, but may be good to apply concealer in tiny areas.

Prob. biggest waste of my makeup …

Styling Products - Beyond The Zone - Turn Up the Heat

Feb/13/2015

I first sprayed this directly onto my hair before using a straightening device. Now, I just spray it on my palms with a dab of Rush Str8 and work it thru lightly, then blow dry on low heat. A little goes a long way.

The price is right on this one - I've been using the same bottle for about a year and it's only half gone. Wish I had known about his product years ago. …
