Cleansers - Alba Botanica - Good & Clean Daily Detox Foaming Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/14/2015

I picked this up at Target last week after realizing they were out of the cleanser I'd used previously (Alba Pineapple Enzyme SomethingOrOther). I'd planned on repurchasing the pineapple cleanser, but ended up buying the Good & Clean Daily Detox Foaming cleanser (I was o-u-t out of cleanser and wasn't sure when I could get back to Target). What I look for in a cleanser: …Read more

Brows - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Eyebrow Kit

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/21/2015

This stuff is great. I'm sure the same is true for those with other hair colors, but I know first hand how difficult it can be to find a good brow product for blondes. I'm pretty fair, and my eyebrows are full but pretty light. They are much lighter than the hair on my head, and tend to "disappear" without any product. I bought this product in "Light" at Target …Read more

Moisturizers - St. Ives - Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/12/2012

I kept reading about this moisturizer here and there, and after seeing it at Walmart for $4.67, I decided it was worth giving a shot. Turns out, this is a pretty great product. It makes my skin a little pink the first time I put it on, but wasn't uncomfortable. My skin is a little sensitive at times, so I'm not surprised. It can also be a bit on the dry side, and the St. Ives …Read more

Palettes - bareMinerals - The Truth

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/27/2012

Even though I have roughly a million neutral eye shadows, this palette is still a winner in my collection. The quality of the product is top notch--buttery, and super pigmented. They're shimmery, but not ultra frosty. I'm one of those people who, when traveling, has a heckofa time paring it down to a bare minimum. I have a trip coming up, and this is all I'll need. I can get …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/20/2012

I used this one night when my husband I and were staying over at my in-law's. I'd forgotten to take my own bottle of face wash (Philosophy Purity) into the shower with me, so I used a pump of my BIL's cleanser, the Neutrogena OFAW. Oh my goodness. My face felt like it was on fire, and it peeled and flaked for a week. (My skin is a little on the dry side, but fairly normal--just …Read more

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - All Shades

Sep/08/2012

This stuff is good, not great. I'd probably give it 3.5 stars if MUA allowed.

I'd used MAC Fluidliners forever, but recently tried out L'Oreal HIP gel liner. That stuff is fantastic and 5 stars, for sure. However, after having an eye infection, I needed to toss my L'Oreal and replace it. I only had time to pop into Ulta, and they were out of the L'Oreal in …

Hair Styling Tools - ghd - Original IV Styler Collection (all sizes) (aka 'Classic Styler')

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/25/2012

This was an incredibly disappointing purchase. Over the past decade, I have alternated between my HAI convertible and a CHI. Wanting to upgrade, I did my research and determined that the GHD was the "best of the best". I lucked out and found some sales and codes to use on folica.com, and got the GHD for "only" $140. I was so, so excited to use it, but when I finally got …Read more

Eyeliner - wet n wild - MegaLiner Liquid Eyeliner

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/06/2012

Did I get a bad tube? I chose the plum/purple shade, and I'm quite disappointed. I'm as fair as fair can be, but even so I get no color payoff from this. It's a liquidy, runny, watered down purple that just barely shows up on my lash line. I wish it looked like the swatch shown at the top of the page!

Blush - Illamasqua - Katie

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/10/2011

I had heard that Illamasqua blushes were top notch, and given my screen name you can imagine why "Katie" caught my eye when I looked at them on Sephora's webpage (who doesn't love finding a great product that shares their name?) It seemed Katie was meant for me--someone with very fair, cool toned skin. I ordered it during Sephora's F&F sale, and it has turned out to …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - salon effects

Oct/31/2011

All in all, these are fantastic. I'm pretty good at doing my own nails, so I would probably never buy these in a regular/solid color (unless, maybe, I was going on vacation and didn't want to worry about chipping nails.) For the patterns though---this product is wonderful! I bought the silver/black spiderweb design for Halloween, and I am impressed. I will have worn them for 7 days …Read more
