Lips - C.O. Bigelow - Spearmint Mentha Lip Shine

First off, I believe that this has been reformulated. I compared the ingredients on the tester at BBW yesterday and they listed all sorts of oils and good-for-your-skin plant based things...the new version can pretty much be described as "Chemical soup"...

Here are the current ingredients:

Ingredients: Polybutene, Petrolatum, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Mentha …

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner - Espresso

4.0

Aug/24/2013

This is hands down the best liner I have ever used.

I am not used to gel liners and it took me a few days (tries) to work the kinks out of using this product. I use it to tightline, applying it only at the base of the lashes. I DO have to be careful not to get it IN my lashes, or it will transfer underneath my eyes after a while. I haven't tried smudging it intentionally yet …

Makeup Brushes - REVLON - Double-Ended Smokey Eye Brush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2013

I use this brush almost daily. The angled side is perfect, perfect size, angle and stiffness to apply powder to the lashline.

The little round side, though, is almost useless for me. Lately I've been using it to smudge pencil eyeliner but I find it's too stiff/rough even for that, and I rediscovered a softer brush that I've had for years (since I was a teenager!!!! Dang …

Makeup Brushes - REVLON - Retractable blush brush

4.0

Aug/18/2013

I love this brush. Been using it for over a year, perfect size and application for blush!!! Very soft. Cleaning is a snap! Love that it's retractable, and it's still in perfect condition.

Yes, it does shed some, mostly when new, but that doesn't bother me. The shedding problem went away after a few uses and I haven't had a problem with it since.

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup [Reformulated Early 2013]

I really love this foundation! It doesn't hurt that my shade (Nude) is a PERFECT match for my skin. I don't use this all over (I really don't like the "all over foundation" look) but it covers my undereye circles like nothing else ever has, and I've tried plenty of different concealers over the years.

It also stays put. It doesn't rub off on my …

Eyeliner - REVLON - Colorstay Eyeliner

2.0

Aug/17/2013

I actually returned this eyeliner.

It might work well for someone who doesn't like to smudge their eyeliner, but as I do, I found it difficult to work with. On top of that, my eyeliner had migrated to the creases of my eyes(!!) within a few hours.

I'm very pleased with other colorstay products that I've tried, so this was a huge disappointment.

Eyeliner - Smashbox - limitless eyeliner

Aug/13/2013

Disappointing for the price. This is a nice eyeliner for sure but it doesn't last any longer than a drugstore brand or similar. It won't last through a day on me without smudging or disappearing and I'm looking for an alternative.

I expected better from this. It does last if you set it with a powder eyeshadow, so I'll probably use mine up, but I won't …

Sunscreen - Alba Botanica - Very Emollient Sunblock SPF 30

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/02/2013

Love. I wish it weren't so expensive, but mineral sunblocks always are for some reason.

I use this daily on my face. It's very moisturizing, it goes OK under my makeup (let it soak in for a while first!). It's white but not very...I've actually noticed that after about 5 or 10 minutes the white cast mostly disappears on my face and I don't see it. It does not …

Sunscreen - MyChelle - Sun Shield SPF 28

Aug/02/2013

Gah!!! Horrible!!!! >:(

I decided to try this because I wanted to go away from chemical sunscreens. It was expensive, but I figured I wouldn't use much (and I was right. Most of the tube is still sitting in my closet. It'll last a LOOOOOOONG time at this rate.) When I got it home and read the directions, it says "reapply every 30-90 minutes" (seriously??! I know …

Mascara - Unlisted Brand - Honeybee Gardens - Truly Natural Mascara

4.0

Aug/02/2013

I really, truly loved this mascara. Even though it isn't waterproof, it never moved, and it came right off in the shower with no remover whatsoever. It looked natural. My lashes still felt soft.

I loved this stuff.

Only trouble is, it made my eyes burn. Oh well. I think I'm in the minority with that one, so don't let it dissuade you from trying it. If it …
