Makeup Brushes - Paula Dorf - Cheek Cream Brush

2.0

Jul/31/2008

I don't know if I am doing something wrong, because everyone else seems to love this brush, but I don't like it. I much prefer my MAC #168, which is a similar shape but fluffier. I never feel like I get quite the right amount of blush with this brush and it takes a lot of blending after I apply it. With my #168, I only have to do minimal blending.


That said, I …

Blush - Paula Dorf - playmate cheek color cream

Jul/31/2008

I like this blush, but it is not one of my favorites. It looks really bright in the container, but much more natural on. I think it might be too cool for my skin tone, but every so often I am in the mood for something like this. I wear it with MAC Giddy lipstick.


I will probably use what I have (eventually), but I don't think I will repurchase. I would buy other colors …

Powder - Fyrinnae - Fyrinnae - Superpower Mineral Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/31/2008

I am new to mineral foundations and this is the first one I have tried. I'd been looking for a while, but they can be expensive (or less expensive but in kits which seems wasteful, because what do you do with the colors you don't use?) and generally have mixed reviews on MUA. I first heard of Fyrinnae here and decided to try it because it has good reviews and is really inexpensive - …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Stila - #8 Powder Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/31/2008

I have had this brush for several years and it is the only one I use for powder, loose or pressed. It has held up fantastically (as one would expect) to frequent use/washing. This is like a dream on my face, and I hate when I have to use anything else (like the bronzer brush I use for my meteorites).


I have the #24 brush as well, and one side is like a smaller version of the …

Makeup Brushes - Stila - #21 Double Duty Cheek Contour and Blush Brush

5.0

Jul/31/2008

I can't believe I have had this brush for almost 3 years and haven't reviewed it, because it's one of my favorites.


I haven't used this for anything other than blush (although I just noticed that some reviewers like it for powder foundations, so I'm definitely going to have to try that), but I still use it several times a week.


I do use …

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/31/2008

I've had this brush for a couple of years and I'm not sure why I haven't reviewed it until now. Actually, maybe it's because this brush already has so many great reviews that there isn't much left to say.


I've used it for everything. I especially love it for highly pigmented blushes and lately for mineral makeup. I know you are supposed to use a …

Moisturizers - Nature's Gate - Oh What a Night [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/20/2008

I'm not a big night cream person. I've always preferred to simplify my routines by using the same lotion morning and night. I'm finding that as I am getting older, my "normal" areas are getting drier though, and my daytime lotions aren't quite moisturizing enough for nighttime use.


I wasn't looking for a night cream, but I saw the reviews …

Lotions/ Creams - Nature's Gate - Neroli Orange & Chocolate Mint Body Lotion with Ester-C

May/26/2008

I found this lotion on clearance at the grocery store (of all places), for under $4. I grabbed a bottle because I needed lotion, liked the scent and the ingredients looked decent. After using it for a few days, my skin was so soft and smooth that I went back and bought the rest of the bottles.


I also have to comment on the scent, because I like that as much as I like the effect …

Apr/20/2008

I have only been using this for a few weeks, and I should probably use it a little while longer before reviewing it, but I am so pleased with it that I am reviewing now and will update later if anything changes. I actually meant to get the Almond Cleanser, but when I got to the store I couldn't remember which one and bought this by mistake. I may still try the Almond Cleanser when I am …Read more

Skincare - Body - Unlisted Brand - Mountain Rose Herbs Essential Oil, any kind

Apr/16/2008

It's so funny that I just placed an order with Mountain Rose Herbs and then I came on here and noticed this review.


I agree with everything the previous reviewer said. The quality is excellent and the prices are competitive. They also have an incredible selection of oils, and I really like the fact that you are generally given several options as far as the amount of the …
