This stuff is horrible. It isn't the worst end of horrible (i. e. causes breakouts and that sort of thing). It is the useless end of horrible (i. e. doesn't help anything at all). I purchased it as a temporary replacement because I was out of my regular skin care products. Will never purchase again. Maybe I'll use it as hand cream. Maybe.

Shampoo - Suave - Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Shampoo

Nov/13/2015

Something has changed about the formulation. This used to be the perfect thing for my hair, but the last 2 bottles seem much different. It is leaving my hair a greasy, disgusting mess. It's not like I need a break from the shampoo either. I had one. This simply doesn't seem to be cleansing my hair at all, and in fact leaving some sort of thick film on it. Nothing else about my …Read more

I actually preferred the old formulation. This formula is too powdery. I'm forced to use a synthetic brush to apply and must blend ad nauseum to prevent the product from settling into every pore, even with a good primer and foundation underneath. It has a tendency to settle into fine lines underneath my thin as well by the end of the day. Yeah, that's attractive. I always set my …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Trish McEvoy - Eyelash Curler

This curler puts a strange crimp in the lashes on one eye and does a reasonable job with the other. I previously used the regular Tweezerman curler, but it wasn't wide enough for my eyes. it also pinched. While the TMc doesn't pinch as badly as the Tweezerman, the pad doesn't span the width of the curler; therefore, some of the eyelashes are left out of the device when I use it …Read more

I am pleasantly surprised by W'n'W shadow. These colors can fallout if you don't use a primer. However, applied over a primer, I've actually experienced greater fallout with expensive shadows. The colors are subtle, but even with my high-contrast coloring, they work very well. I love this palette. I actually purchased it to paint bruises on "victims" for a …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Skinn Cosmetics - DermAppeal Microdermabrasion Treatment

Aug/15/2014

I will absolutely never be without this product if I can help it. I purchased it as part of a kit. I was actually purchasing the kit for the other products, and wasn't familiar with this at all. For some reason, I thought it would be a mask instead of a microdermabrasion scrub. It sat in my drawer for a couple of weeks before I got around to trying it. I have been using Boots No. 7 …Read more

I can't believe that I'm about to review this. I used to cuss this foundation. For reasons that won't be detailed here. However, I have been on the hunt for an HG foundation. Who would have thunk it!? As a previous reviewer mentioned, I tried Gerda Spillman before. It was an excellent foundation. However, it never seemed to provide the exact, adjustable coverage I need. I …Read more

I am really enjoying this cleanser. It leaves my skin so soft, even though I follow it with a "soapy" cleanser. It smells so fresh and melts all my makeup away. I do use a waterproof eye makeup remover first, as I typically use waterproof mascara.

It takes only one pump, and I massage it into my entire face. Then I use a bit of warm water to massage more, rinse a bit …

I absolutely adore this primer. I use it under a foundation that was previously too drying (Tarte Amazonian Clay). I used to be able to use that particular foundation with no problems, but my skin has going through some changes and the foundation started to look dry and cakey. I tried a number of primers under the foundation because I had quite a bit left to use. None of the more silicon-y …Read more

If these are ever discontinued, I'm not sure what I will do. These are incredible. I've used UD 24/7 for years, and what a sucker I was to pay so much money for inferior quality! This Jordana liner is better quality and dirt cheap. Please, please, please, don't ever go away, Jordana. I love you! I will be purchasing your mascara next.

So smooth, lasts like crazy …
